But aborting babies is okay. Got it.
Save a stupid bird and keep people unemployed and our dependence on Opecker oil/gas.
Envirals are economic terrorists, and they are probably funded by the Opecker Princes.
First block coal, then block any viable alternatives.
The Endangered Species Act needs to be repealed. The chances of that happening are probably close to Zero, so the US continues to cut its own throat.
Wyoming Gov. Matt Mead wants the federal government to flip the status of the sage grouse so it is not a candidate for protection under the Endangered Species Act.
So they lose a few oil related jobs.
You win some. You lose some.
This has been said here before by many people, and I’ll say it again: Obama’s goal is to inflict grief and pain upon the American people in the hopes that they will riot in the streets and revolt in a Marxist revolution. He wants the people to suffer in the hopes that the suffering will lead to chaos, revolution, and a Lenin-Stalin like regime that truly transforms American.
I haven’t seen a grouse around here in 15-20 years. No quails since 1976. The guvmnt isn’t doing anything about that. Don’t really want them either.
I have some blue palm turkeys which some say is quite rare. Guess I’d better hide them. Damn guvmnt
Welcome to the Club.
Degrowth is an essential economic strategy to pursue in overdeveloped countries like the United Statesfor the well-being of the planet, of underdeveloped populations, and, yes, even of the sick, stressed, and overweight populations of overdeveloped countries.
Can anyone present one smidgen of evidence that a bird has ever died on a drillling rig or pump jack?
Chicken farmers could raise millions of these birds, if the birds really were the issue.
The Strategy of a Manufactured Crisis
and if the price of oil goes up because of Iraq????
That is one of their goals.
I am sure grouse are as simple to raise...and cook...and eat...
Here in the PNW every single little stream is protected because it is the ONLY PLACE a salmon lives. Last time I checked there is salmon for 5 bucks a pound that is identical to the salmon in the little streams. BUT. NOPE. It’s a special river salmon. Even though it is genetically identical to every other salmon and steelhead it’s protected, thus, shutting down the forest.
