    The park is closed to automobiles in winter. Visitors centers are closed. Lodges are closed. Unless you are traveling by snowshoe or snowmobile... you need to cancel. Whether the government shuts down or not.

    Trump can't make this hard decision. Only Congress can.
    Blaming Trump for something only Congress can do... is lame.

    In the United States, by Constitution, the Congress controls the budget, not the President. Blaming Trump for passing or not passing a budget is lame.

    Democrats want the budget to not pass before January (when new majority takes over). Trump wants a budget now. Blaming him for not passing it now... lame.

    If you have reservations you need to cancel. The park is closed to automobiles. Visitors centers are closed. Lodges are closed. Unless you are traveling by snowshoe or snowmobile... you need to cancel. Whether the government shuts down or not. The park is pretty much closed already.

    Trump can't make this hard decision. Only Congress can.
    So blaming Trump for something Congress must do... is lame.

    In the United States, by Constitution, the Congress controls the budget, not the President. Blaming Trump for passing or not passing a budget is lame.

    Democrats WANT the budget to not pass before January (when new majority takes over). And yet you keep blaming Trump. Trump want's a budget now (before Dems take over)

    No comment. Jay's article says it all.

    "Oh sure — and next thing you know those greasy scones will be spreading heart disease all over bird land."

    You know that scones everywhere else are different than Utah scones, right? What we call scones, everyone else calls frybread, you know, used to make Navajo tacos. A scone is kind of like a lightly sweetened biscuit. No, it's not all that healthy itself with all the sugar and flour, but they're not greasy.

    The issue for many is the left's seeming desire to control everyone and everything. The "archaic sayings" don't mean much, until the left says you can't say it. Then it becomes an issue.

    I for one welcome PETA's kind updating to archaic sayings. Inclusive, nonviolent language benefits everyone.

    Scones, not stones. :) Seriously, though, why cling to outdated sayings that make light of cruelty?
