Barred Owls murdered by the State and Federal "Experts"

Who would have thought thew State and Federal agencies would stoop so low as to murder one species of owl to "save" another?  I mean if the Barred Owl likes to eat the Northern Spotted Owl, why is that a concern to humans?  When I read the article in today's Union Newspaper, Page A7, I almost fell out of my LazyBoy!

Barred Owl
Northern Spotted Owl
I have a few gripes against George H.W. Bush when he was President.  The ADA is one and fact he knuckled under to the eco nuts on the Northern Spotted Owl was the other.  A once vibrant industry in the Northwest was wrecked by the instituting of the bad science on these little owls.  Even in today's article the government still says the owl only lives in the "old growth" forests.  The big lie.  Those little critters have been found in all kinds of habitats.  But the myth was created to stop logging and weak kneed politicians fell into line and killed logging.

I remember all those little communities that were wiped out when the logging was curtailed.  Many people committed suicide because their lives were so upset.  But along came the Federal "saviors" and said to some of the devastated areas, "come, sign up for our "retraining" programs and welfare"  We turned towns into welfare destinations and the most important agencies were now Social Services.  They made slaves out of thousands of people.  But golly, those experts from the state and feds saved that little owl.  But even though the owl is a cousin, genetically speaking, of other owls numerous in the west, the sacrifice of the humans to "save it" was "worth it"!  Well maybe not.

The lies told about this little owl are too numerous to list here but they are many.  For me, I was doing my best at the time in the early 90's to brings some common sense to the issue.  But as usual, the government would have none of it and all the "legal" was weighted to the eco extremists.  Over the course of the years the timber used in California and most of the USA was from Canada.  So our construction industries used foreign wood to build our homes while we have a great renewable resource right here.  Many hundreds of billions of dollars were sent north to Canada where their "rules" were much different.  I bet they laughed their asses off on the way to the bank!

But common sense has no place on these listings of "endangered species".  I recall the Delhi Sand Fly in Riverside County a few years back that forced the County to move a proposed hospital (costing millions) to accommodate a fly!  I mean, are those people still in charge of listings?  Then we have the Sage Hen in the mid section of America and there was the little fairy shrimp in puddles in "vernal pools" in our central valley.  There is so much insanity on these listings but one thing is clear to me.  These are all about the hate of capitalism and freedom and not much about the critters.  The critters are simply the convenient tool we have created in America to feel good about ourselves.  The ESA abuse is so widespread that soon America will be under the thumb of the "green storm troopers" of the environmental movement.  The "Commerce Clause" of our Constitution has been so abused to enable every little puddle of water, every little critter and plant to receive billions of our tax dollars that we must be really good people?

The pendulum hopefully will swing back towards common sense in the not to distant future.  If not, then we will see a new form of government called "environmentalism" and enforced by green storm troopers.  Your land is really not yours it appears and if you fight them for your rights they have the full force and checkbook of our "people's government" to destroy you.  The Northern Spotted Owl fiasco must be defeated or as the eco nuts say, "it is a canary" in the mine to alert us against the fascists.

  1. I remember listening to the local radio many years ago during the spotted owl controversy. Couple of Forest Service ladies were telling us how they were able to count the number of owls in our forest. The one lady started falsetto hooting like a spotted owl. Allegedly the spotted owls would answer. I couldn't help but laugh at what seemed to be the most stupid thinking ever. I mentally pictured the same owl following them around.

    1. I remember that too! That was how they counted. What a hoot! Anyway they use junk science and since these owls are all related it still is a travesty they destroyed so many lives of people.

  2. Even more amazing was the local Sierra Club advocate James Wood who accused the loggers of cutting down all the trees in his letter to the Union newspaper. He advised readers to charter an airplane and go see for themselves. So friend Judy and I invited him to go with us at our expense. He declined because he said he was legally blind...so we invited our friend Tony. We all wrote about it later. http://www.mcguiresplace.net/Blind%20Man's%20Bluf

    1. I seem to recall that Bonnie. The left is so nuts that they have a blind man tell us about the forests and the management of it. Amazing!

  3. SCOOP! 150 year old local newspaper The Union, receives multiple awards for EXCELLENCE IN JOURNALISM! Local blogger has heart attack, destroys his computer, and swears to "get those good old boys" who handed out the awards to his former employer. It required six EMT's to load him on the gurney where he was heard squealing "I am the only award winning journalist in this podunk town". The Union management, and their multiple award winning reporters, who have conducted themselves with dignity and class during the past several years of constant attacks and criticisms from the irrelevant blogger had no comment about the blogger's latest round of childish antics.

  4. I have a comment for you A Reader. "WE FINALLY HAVE SOME REAL AWARD WINNING JOURNALISTS IN WESTERN NEVADA COUNTY." The self proclaimed "award winning journalist" is still hooked up to the defib. May he rest in peace.

  6. Sorry Anon, that is not a 600#er. That is AT LEAST 800#, which makes the math 160# x5 if one of the EMT's has to carry the award that no one has ever seen.

  7. I just sent a comment to ABC Radio News on their little plug for Clinton just now. Told them they need to give equal time to the Republicans. My guess is they don't give a crap. Here is the link to the comment page of their site. I urge you all to comment. I am sick and tired of their bias and I have vowed to send my thoughts as many times as I can.
