Turning rhino horn into dagger handles is even stupider.

Lest we not forget the new rules regarding the sacrifice of the American Bald Eagles on the altar of green energy.


The obama admin is expanding the allowable eagle kill for windmills.

Apparently the media and social justice crowd took your advice...


wonder if Cass Sunstein, obama's dir of info and regulatory affairs, who feels animals should have legal representation, feels about a pile of dead eagles, compliments of his boss?

What's the big deal? It isn't like they are endangered.

Discussions regarding the effects of wind power on migratory birds have been going on for quite some time and are not a reflection of who happens to be President right now.

This was noted in the link initially provided by the OP. The current President, whoever he/she happens to be right now, OK'd the increased bald eagle kill. If the current President and his/her administration arbitrarily quadruple the amount of eagles that can be killed without penalty, it most certainly IS a reflection of the current President.

And while on the subject, I think it sucks. I won't say more, as much as I'd like to, since this isn't the right place for it.

That sighting/killing of a Wolverine in North Dakota is surprising... and sad.
