Trump's bow to the people

The Antiquities Act of 1906 was a splendid idea. The Act was intended to give presidents limited authority — emphasis on the word "limited" — to designate unique and special landmarks, such as a natural arch, breathtaking mesas or an ancient cliff dwelling that deserves to be preserved for future generations. Certain presidents have abused this authority and seized millions of acres of private land for federal regulation. Barack Obama used the Act 27 times, more than any other president.

Pigs can be housebroken — not easily, but it can be done — and they're peaceable and friendly.
