#1 Outstanding. This is what draining the swamp looks like.

#2 Those that left most likely took other positions within the Federal Government. But it's a start.

#3 /\ Which is good. The numbers in D.C., they still eventually go down.

#4 It almost sounds as though the remaining BLM employees will have to, you know, Maybe even all day, for the entire week.

#5 ^What I like about you (Americans), you're such optimistic People - we (Jews) tend to doom & gloom.

#6 /\ Well g(r)om, you must admit, there is some historical precedence for your.... 'doom & gloom.'

#8 No, We'll Quit First.

In software-speak - That's a feature, not a bug.

#9 "This is a huge brain drain,"

It might be the first time I ever saw that word being used to describe Federal bureaucrats.

That said, the rest of you - GTFO!

#12 It seems counterintuitive to describe a brain drain of expertise in land management when the brains won’t go where the land is to manage. How do you stay expert inside the beltway?

#13 They're very expert in telling the Western plebs how to live. Now they get to be them. Bwahahaha! How terrible!

#14 We call that culling the herd. With good reason.

#15 I live in the state where the BLM controls the most territory (Nevada), and in a location where they own 99% of the land. I've interacted with them a lot: sometimes positively, sometimes negatively. And a few of them willingly live among us... but most don't, and won't. Even the friendly ones will tell you to your face they have little respect for the intelligence of Nevadans or their ability to manage their own affairs.

Add to that having to send your kids to the same schools as our kids, shop at the same stores as us, and generally be around us all the time... well, they don't want that kind of accountability.

Still, I salute the 80 who don't have that problem. It's a good sign.

#16 Keep those Dimacrats out of my state. They probably on came for marryjane.
