    RESIZE: AAA

    The Obama administration announced with little fanfare Thanksgiving eve plans to lock up nine million acres of land for the endangered Northern Spotted Owl.


    The plan would double the amount of public forest lands proposed by the Bush administration for the owl’s habitat in Oregon, Washington and Northern California, and is expected to severely limit commercial activities like logging.


    Rep. Doc Hastings (R-Wash.), chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee, said he is concerned the plan will cost taxpayers millions of dollars.


    “Expanding the Northern Spotted Owl’s critical habitat will further endanger the timber industry, the thousands of jobs that the industry supports, and forest health,” Hastings said.

    So, what's the big deal?

    They've already cut off irrigating millions of areas of farm land in the San Joaquin Valley of California because of some stupid little fish or reptile.

    They're doing their best to stop drilling on private land in Texas because of some lizzard that only lives within a 100 acre bit of land.

    They've stopped cattle grazing on millions of acres of land in Nevada due to a stupid "Darter fish" that's almost extinct because it can't adjust to natural changes.

    The list goes on and on but the American voter seems to be okay with it - until it hits 'em in the pocketbook like it will next year!!! :mad:

    When you can't defend the practice attack the source...

    You think it's OUR fault that your lackeys in the MSM won't publish this kind of thing?

    They're not in business to make Barry look BAD, you know...

    I'd like to know where they think the authority for this comes from. It damn sure isn't the Constitution.
