Irregular and declining budgets have hindered our ability to move out aggressively in this area.

Use the royalty money first for expenses related to the production. Only after expenses should the remained go to the general fund. The production generates revenue a couple orders of magnitude above the expenses.

BLM should be BS. These gestapo mainly want more money to harass citizens who have the nerve to want to be on public lands. Fire all of them.

or swat training / more ammo and fully automatic weapons that are illegal for the slaves / subjects to own.

To be used against ranchers who have senior water rights that sleazy politicians want to steal, then cut deals with Chinese Communists who employ their son.

Anyone in an “alphabet” agency that isn’t specifically mentioned in the constitution should be laid off,

and banned from any future government employment.

How’s that?

Looks like that is the general plan, George. Seems to be working fairly well for them, too.

Maybe they would have enough money if they quit spending millions of dollars each year caring for and feeding thousands of mustangs that have been removed from the range.
This is a real racket just to keep the unicorn lovers happy. Can’t kill the poor little horsies that no one wants.

BLM should be abolished. No need for it and the States should have this responsibility.

Paramilitary Gestapo Thieves and Jackboots.

Another agency that should be disbanded and all of its assets sold off, all of its employees unceremoniously fired.

Back in the early 19th Century there were so many horses in California that entire herds were driven off cliffs into the ocean.
