This sounds very unconstitutional. Oh well, Americans don't care about the point of the constitution anyway, they only seem to care about the letter of the law, doing whatever the fuck they want and then rationalising it by overinterpreting the law, or they don't care about it at all.

You say that there are 2000 bureacracies that if they were an independent country would be in the top 10 largest countries, but that’s impossible Even if 100% of the US was federal land that would be 9,834,000 km^2, divide that by 2000 and you get 4,971km^2 which would be in the 165th place of largest countries. Maybe I’m missing something but I don’t get how that is possible

The Hidden Ninja but he says that there are 2000 bureaucracies that control land which if it were an independent country would be in the top 10 Doesn’t that imply that each of those bureaucracies controls land large enough to be in the top 10?

a lot of people in usa seem to forget that usa is not an alliance of independent nations like the eu. usa is a single country, with regions called "states". federal land is simply land under the control of the national government instead of the regional government. there, saved you like 7.5 minutes...

6:25 Nevada has been fighting against yucca mtn for 40-50 years because WE'RE NOT YOUR TRASH CAN NUCLEAR REACTOR USING STATES ON THE EAST COAST (the ones making most of the waste and pushing for the facility) and just last year that fuctard at the department of energy (Mr. Oops Asshat the first) started sneaking plutonium into the state without telling anyone. Good thing the Chinese spies at Mar-a-Lago weren't more interested as to what truck was carrying fucking PLUTONIUM down the fucking INTERSTATE!!!

So does the department of energy controls our store of nuclear weapons but not the silos they are kept in? Or just the fissible material?

2:41 it took until 1978 for the Mormons to recognize that black and brown people were equal and to roll back their edicts discriminating against them passed down from founder and notorious child bride collector Joseph Smith and they still rule Utah with an iron fist (look at how the legislature, the vast, vast majority hard core Mormon, is castrating the Medicaid expansion law passed by POPULAR SUPPORT and are literally paying more to insure less people). Believe me, you didn't want to give early day Mormons any more power then they already had. The parishioners are mostly good people but the leadership is dirty.

Le leggi e regole che vanno fatte rispettare dai dipartimenti di cui si è parlato, devono restare INVIOLABILI, a prescindere dalla gastione politica, che sia federale o meno: organizzano nel rispetto del territorio animali produzione, l' estrazione e lo sfruttamento delle risorse. Se arriva qualcuno che vuole togliere - come purtroppo mi pare sia accaduto da tempo immemore ma si dovrebbe subito rimediare - terre alle vastissime riserve gestite dagli indiani d'America, semplicemente non può farlo. Queste sono leggi imprescindibili se si vuol gestire bene un Paese fantastico come gli States ma anche uno splendido e molto piccolo come l'Italia: i dipartimenti e ministeri che gestiscono e regolano flora fauna gestione territorio quindi parchi riserve allevamenti bilanciando tutto, devono sempre far rispettare le leggi di base, quindi INVIOLABILI, come le leggi universali dei diritti dell'uomo non vanno violate, e una persona lesa nei suoi diritti troverà sempre un tribunale col potere di farli rispettare, con tanto di risarcimento. La legge del "chi arriva prima" non funziona più, vanno considerate delle cose prima e chieste autorizzazioni su teritorio, dipartimenti inclusi. Il federalismo va bene per alcune cose, la gestione del denaro che uno stato democratico in apparenza non sa avere, migliorare, per esempio: più denaro meno tasse ma sempre considerando le fasce bisognose, il rispetto del territorio (test nucleari a ripetizione lo rendono tossico e arido).
