Oh, they've been out working hard to put the West Desert off-limits to recreation over some purported endangered beetle.

rip up our mountains and pollute our valley air for cheap copper for chinese made gadgets,
and then we'll sell you all our precious water Nevada just for good measure.

You can buy anything in this world, with money.
