    Why does the liberal media hype "experts" that are constantly proven wrong? I am providing a place where the media is exposed for propping up snake oil salesmen and money grubbing scam artists...If you see something on-line that smells of the same old fear mongering liberal BS, this is the place...

    They should start farming tigers. That would eliminate a majority of poaching.

    I get bugged by the "experts", typically college communication majors or ex-politicians cashing out for the favors they gave special interest Lobby.

    Everyone is guilty of this from Fox news to MSNBC

    No genius...I doubt the "experts" who unexpectedly get it wrong over and over. I especially doubt the experts who say they need 100's of millions of dollars "RIGHT NOW!" or the world is going to end. One of these days you libs will learn how to read and be able to answer accordingly. But what can I expect...you support the corrupt and wasteful public school system, so you get your education accordingly :)

    Or possibly you will learn to post a position you are taking clearly enough that your readers don't have to ask you dumb questions.

    I believe that the current amount asked for to save the tiger is $80 million a year, incidently.

    Mostly that goes to creating habitate where poachers won't be able to kill off the last of that species, FYI.

    Seems like a good investment to me.

    So the tigers will become extinct. On the downside, no more tigers, on the upside, no more tiger poaching.

    I'm sure this world will continue to operate without tigers.

    350 million for 5 years.

    350/5 = $70 million a year, champ.
