Team Obama Sets Aside 1.7 Million Acres for Sage Grouse… OR 368 ACRES FOR EACH BIRD

It’s an Obama world.
The Obama Administration is setting aside 1.7 million acres in Colorado and Utah for the Gunnison Sage Grouse.

Gunnison Sage-Grouse

There are an estimated 4,612 grouse left in the wild.
So it comes out to 368 acres for each grouse.

And, if you figure that each acre is worth around $500-$1000 dollars, then you can assume the Obama Administration is investing around $184,000 per bird.

It’s good to be a grouse.
The Denver Post reported:

Federal biologists have found that Gunnison sage grouse are going extinct — victims of road, power-line and housing development in western Colorado.

But the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service proposes to protect survivors as endangered species using 1.7 million acres in southwest Colorado and southeast Utah.

The chicken-size, ground-nesting birds are prone to flying into barbed-wire fences and are famed for their loud mating dances…

…An estimated 4,612 grouse, fewer than one-tenth of their historical population, have survived in fragments around western Colorado.

    Good work, Comrades!

    Man, I could so go there. But, no. I’ll keep my increasingly racist yap shut this time.

    Agenda 21 UN Coming soon to Amerika Traitor in Chief is chuckling at American citizens who are too clueless currently. Most humans will be wiped out to put more animals and plants near extinction to take over the land.

    From the same liberal jackholes that preach evolution and Darwinism, now we’re supposed to prevent natural order? Think of all the species we will be preventing from evolving because we’re artificially preserving the current ones.

  • Warthog

    This is not about the grouse, this is about fencing off land from development and mineral exploitation. The five-year plans are just around the corner, comrade.

    … “for the Gunnison Sage Grouse” sure.

  • Lim Lynn

    68 acres for each grouse. Wait did I forget to mention an acres is enough for one grouse. Why can’t he place 4,612 grouse in 4612 acres instead.

    If the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument episode is any guide, there are valuable mineral or hydrocarbon resources being tied up for reasons that are far more political than environmental.

    I love wildlife but when I think about the aborted babies, the hungry children, the jobless, those who are living in shelters and not by choice.

    Well, something like this disgust me. But who am I, just a citizen who wishes to call my congress and any representative who will listen to give them an earful, today.

    With this government there is always an underline reason for this nonsense. Shameful. That is what really is most disturbing.

    You know what Sage Grouse taste like? …………………….Bald Eagle.

    Only kidding, it’s good to see Der Fuhrer working tirelessly on destroying this great America. You have to admit, at least he’s focused!

    See #6 Warthog.

    Absolutely right.

    See, environmentalism has never been about the “environment”, except in words designed to pull the heartstrings of the Caring. It has always and ever been about power, and the acquisition thereof.

    If they gave two s&&ts about the so-sacred “environment”, they’d be demanding that we drill for our own oil, instead of buying it from Saudi Arabia, China, Venezuela, and Russia.

    Do free members of those nations, en masse, because they care, flock to the site of an oil spill and WASH DUCKS WITH DISH SOAP?

    No. Because when there’s an oil spill in ANY of those places, nobody gives a s&&t.

    It’s never been about safety (anti-nuke folks), it’s never been about health (anti-fossil fuel folks), it’s never been about the poor widdle fishies (anti-hydroelectric folks), and it’s never been about the poor widdle birdies (anti-wind-power folks).

    It’s ALWAYS been about decreasing American productivity.

    It’s ALWAYS been about destroying American sovereignty, and forcing us to cede all power to the State which heretofore has SERVED US.

    Sadly, there seems to be no stopping this train.

    Obama Second Term Overview: The Beginning, not the End, of the Campaign

    It ought to be clear what President Barack Obama’s second term will bring. In the 2012 election, both Republicans and Democrats agreed that the country faced a clear choice between two alternatives. The GOP ticket advocated a return to the constitution’s vision of a society of free individuals, and the Obama campaign offered a vision of cradle-to-grave government guarantees. Obama having won, the path forward ought to be clear.

    Yet Obama’s vision has run into an immovable obstacle: not House Republicans, who are weakened by division despite returning with a majority; but, rather, reality. There is no money left to achieve what Obama wants do to, or to pay for commitments he has already made; neither is there the capacity in the federal government to carry out his new regulatory plans, nor the will among the general public to tolerate more of them.

    This is more then saving a bird.

    Americans haven’t awoken to the fact that if we don’t start moving and quick things will only get worse and someone, anyone must start to counter the left from a widespread disease called social communist liberal agenda. It is spreading like a wildfire and it will take you and me and so many others to put it out. They are moving in fast numbers to change everything in America and it isn’t just scary it is more dangerous and getting worse each day.

    Obama has been destroying the right and the right seems to be doing nothing. And he has just begun his second. This is what worries me, this nation is at war with one another.

    I hope we come out as victors but it will take all of us. Write your congress and reps., I realize they have been silent but we need to wake them up.

    Senator Obama, Citizen of the World

    [Again, M. Revel’s assessment clarifies and amplifies both liberal-progressive-socialist denunciation of President Bush’s foreign policies and the implications of world government espoused by Senator Obama:

    …we can conclude that the abolition of what we call foreign policy will be one of the essential components of the future world revolution. And it will also be the key to all other changes that constitute the revolution…The second world revolution will therefore consist in putting an end to that notion which is the source of all evil: the notion of national sovereignty…only multilateral agreement on reciprocal controls, leading to planetary multinational law, will allow us to escape safely from this absurd situation. Bilateral accords must be avoided like the plague, for they are only the framework for warlike foreign policies, local hegemony, or imperialistic domination…

    Whether one supports the liberal-progressive agenda or not, there must be clear-eyed recognition that it is pushing the United States toward abolition of national sovereignty. From Supreme Court advocacy of international and foreign country law as superseding the Constitution, to “sensitive” foreign policy that must be pre-approved by the UN, we are barreling down the slippery slope to socialist impoverishment and domination by foreign powers.]

    [Even if we muster sufficient backbone to resist Islamic jihad, liberal
    Republicans and Democrats will be undermining our future from within
    by loading more free services onto an economy unable to fulfill even it
    existing commitments under Social Security and Medicare.

    Regarding that, Revel wrote: “..[What the quest for economic equality
    produces] is the growing role of government, the modern government
    of which democracy’s children ask everything and from which they
    consequently accept everything. …. Tocqueville the visionary predicted
    [in his 1833 “Democracy in America”] with stunning precision the coming
    ascension of the omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient state the
    twentieth-century man knows so well: the state as protector, entrepreneur,
    educator; the physician-state, impresario-state, bookseller-state, helpful
    and predatory, tyrant and guardian, banker, father and jailer all at once…..
    Its power borders on the absolute partly because it is scarcely felt, having
    increased by imperceptible stages at the wish of its subjects, who turned
    to it instead of to each other. In those pages by Tocqueville we find the
    germ both of George Orwell’s “1984” and David Riesman’s “The Lonely
