    A shame we still haven't been able to shake the stupid and utterly failed Woodrow Wilson progressive model of international interventionist do-goodery.

    Ever consider the US Army Corps of Engineers?
    It is the construction and building branch of the Army, which the right seems to hate.
    they are among other things stewards of many of our lakes and such and prevent rampant capatilistic exploitation in many areas. thus preserving the areas and the continuing use of said areas by all, not just the rich and powerful.
