Par for the course for this administration

I roamed and rambled, and I foller'ed my footsteps
   To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts
   And all around me a voice was a'sounding
   This land was made for you and me

The NPS doesn't walk the talk.

Never has; it's just they no longer can hide the hypocrisy from those who have looked behind the curtain.
