Looks like it'll go specifically to historical battlefields. Still cool none the less.

Just needs some extra zeroes and specifically to public hunting land and we'll be on to something

Makes for a nice headline... but he's donating $78k to the NPS while also proposing to cut the NPS budget by $360 million.

His dollars vs our dollars...

Unrelated side note, but the NPS in Alaska is not even close to a friend of hunters in our millions upon millions of acres of Preserve; maybe where you live they are.

But flying around in helicopters and landing at sheep hunters camps to harass them?? Seems like a budget cut is in order.

Yea when I first saw that I was hoping for more to the story than what I read. Even donating his entire yearly salary is a drop in the bucket....

His 1st quarter salary donation equals roughly .000026% of the budget for federal lands in the state of WY only. Even for click bait this "gesture" is futile at best.

And his weekend excursions to Florida cost us $3.5 million each time.

Agreed. Imagine a government funding model sort of based on crowd sourcing, where we could choose the allocation of our tax dollars. I know I would much rather see my thousands and thousands of tax dollars go toward infrastructure improvements. I would be all for building a nationwide high speed rail system, rather than paying some loser's welfare.

Wow, did not know this stuff. I would not think that folks here would have preferred Hillary instead.

I would say it is not a preference for one over the other, but the ISSUES that matter.

I agree it's not about red or blue. Cannot be distracted by the lip service it's the actions at the end of the day that make the impacts.

If you don't cut budgets, you can't pay down debt. You can't take away $$$ from the welfare class so where should the budget cuts come from?

I know Barry and George were great at paying down the debt and cutting budgets......oh wait......nevermind

Beat me to it. NPS is not your friend.
