A long time ago college student worked all the national parks to help them pay for college. Then some idiots decided to farm out everything to the "private" sector! These were pretty good jobs for kids, parks were taken care of and money from sales of curios went to the government! We must go back to this way of like for the kids and give em a chance! They complain about the money for Parks but the money FROM the parks goes into the general fund and not back into park upkeep. That, too must change!

After we as a nation worked so hard and with so much unity to recover from the Great Depression, I find it shameful that we as a nation allowed ourselves to be lulled into complacency to allow the same abuses which originally led to that Depression to be reinstated, so that it happened to us again! Yet I find it even more shameful that we don't seem to be able to pull together and recognize that this has happened, so that we can come together again to recover again. This act would be part of that recovery. Failure to pass this act would simply be returning to Depression.
