Birds of a feather

Concrete roads and
Bush is coming,

Just months before President Bush leaves office, his administration is antagonizing environmentalists by proposing changes that would allow federal agencies to decide for themselves whether subdivisions, dams, highways and other projects have the potential to harm endangered animals and plants.
Bears are finally on their own.
In May, the polar bear became the first species declared as threatened because of climate change. Warming temperatures are expected to melt the sea ice the bear depends on for survival.
This summer I hear no advising,
The proposal, first reported by The Associated Press, would cut out the advice of government scientists who have been weighing in on such decisions for 35 years.
More dying on the globe.
"Over the years, the Endangered Species Act has become a regulatory nightmare that kills or stalls even the most well-crafted land-use projects," said Rob Rivett, president of the Pacific Legal Foundation, a group that supports property rights and limited government. "The economy suffers, people suffer, rational environmental planning suffers. Some careful streamlining is long overdue."
You're all an interminable string of vulgar epithets.

What do you think, Republican Jesus' Secretary of the Interior?

"Dirkie, you're doing a heckuva job."

I'll have the Bald Eagle Special please, with a side of Polar Bear chutney, and which of those tasty whales that are endangered, erm, special that you got on the menu Dirk?

Christopher said...

We should prepare for extinction.

When we ruin this planet, God will just come and give us a new one.

I'll take a bowl of Great South Bay clams with a side of Long Island potato fries, and a glass of H2O from an Methyl tert-butyl ether-free watershed.

Randal Graves said...

UC, don't forget the daily special of wolf. Delicious!

christopher, probably not a bad idea. I've always wondered if we'll get taken out by nature herself like in bad disaster flicks such as Frogs.

übermilf, that's how it works? Well, hell, after work, I'm heading over to the local auto parts place to pick up a few cases of oil and burn them in my back yard.

spartacus, the only clean water left around these parts is probably the stuff the Martian rover found last month.

These sons of bitches won't be happy until they destroy this fucking country.

Yeah, let's allow the foxes to guard the hen house. Why not?

Anita said...

this made me fall of my ergonomic chair:
"allow federal agencies to decide for themselves"

keep those nifty decisions comin' guys! your track record is IMPECCABLE.

Dean Wormer said...

If corporate lobbyists were on the ESL then you'd bet your bottom dollar this wouldn't be happening.

Randal Graves said...

POP, hey, all we have to do is let the fox gorge himself until he doesn't want to eat any longer. Problem solved.

anita, impeccable? Why not, it's IMPEACHABLE.

dean, why am I suddenly picturing fencing in an area and releasing lobbyists into said fenced-area where they have no chance at escape as I load up my gun with buckshot and I DO promise to shoot someone in the face?

Randal Graves said...

why NO, I meant.

I can haz typing skillz pleez.

Scarlet W. Blue said...

Four dead in O-hi-o.

You're cool. Loved it.

okjimm said...

Yup.... read this. Where is Stewert Udall when you need him.

Border Explorer said...

Maybe could we fix MN (et.al.) bridges before we build more infrastructure on top of endangered species?

Christopher said...

These sons of bitches won't be happy until they destroy this fucking country.

George and Pickles will escape to their 100,000 acre ranch in Paraguay that sits atop the largest fresh water acquifer in South America.

The Bush klan will be fine.

Randal Graves said...

SWB, you hear that, my psycho offspring, I'm cool. Told ya.

okjimm, that filthy hippie? Being compost for his beloved trees, no doubt!

BE, no, no, no. The optimal solution is even larger SUVs. The bridge collapses, all that steel tonnage protects the consumer from harm.

christopher, I'd advise everyone to not contemplate this thought for too long, lest pyrotechnical and murderous impulses take over.

FranIAm said...

Republican Jesus for Secy of the Interior - great! A chicken in every pot and a cross on every lawn... cause we have cut down all the fucking trees and there will be wood for all!

We are so fucked. No really - I mean it.

Oh. You knew that.

Bradda said...

Bears are evil mindless killing machines. Who cares if they go to the big zoo in the sky? If I can't get bacon out of it, it's not an important species in my humble opinion.

Beach Bum said...

I'm actually looking forward to some more environmental destruction in a dark ironic manner. I know a bunch of republicans here in SC that live on the coast in very high priced condos that really love the marsh or ocean view they bought. With republicans pushing to have off shore drilling I can't wait to ask them how they feel about once oil starts washing up on their door step and dead oily animals plop down in their rose garden.
But like Christopher wrote about the Bush family land holding in South America, all the high and mighty will have long since jumped off the sinking ship like the rats they are.

Distributorcap said...

i hope all the birds crap all over the bush ranch... and aim again for the head of the bush KKKlan

susan said...

They chopped down my nephew's favorite tree. The family's all heading over there later to shit on their heads.


Swinebread said...

Well we had our time. Sorry Swinebread Jr. there's nothing left of the world because some greedy fucks had have it all for themselves...

Randal Graves said...

fran, didn't that looney from Minnesota, Bachman, say something eerily similar recently? Jesus saved us 2000 years ago, so essentially, we don't have to do a damn thing and let the George Bushes of the world do their thing.

Yeah, we're fucked.

bradda, I understand that the bear isn't a wonderful, magical animal, but just think, we could train them to hunt commies! Since commies already like bears, they'll never suspect it!

BB, I too enjoy a sip of that schadenfreude now and then. Once pristine coastlines dotted with McMansions. Can't say I'd shed a tear if they got fucked. Of course, they'd blame it on the liberals anyway.

dcap, that's a tall order. I imagine it's difficult to hit a stumbling, drunken target.

crow, give 'em the hell that is the bowel of Aves.

swinebread, hey, the animals didn't want to die off, they should have moved.

Tom Harper said...

Oh come on, you've been listening to those rabid environmentalists again. I heard an objective description of this plan on Fox News. It won't endanger those icky smelly animals one bit. It'll just streamline the permit process and get rid of some of those cumbersome regulations that are just duplicating each other.

Working people and the environment will be helped by this new balanced approach :)

Randal Graves said...

tom, if you saw it on Fox News, that's good enough for me. Now I can finally build that highway offramp in my backyard!

Stella said...

OMG, a blast from the past: is that James Watt the F***?
