I think this is a bad idea, but it shows one of the serious problems of our society, which is that business won't rest until they've destroyed everything on the face of our planet, and taken every last penny from all of us. Republicans like to use the word "balance", but they mean getting 100% of what they wants, and what they want is completely selfish, immoral, immature and destructive. Business already has most of the money on this planet, how much more do they need to be happy? Balance would be being able to live with enough, instead of demanding everything for no reason other than selfishness. Animals have been devastated by our modern society, and they deserve some protections to keep from going extinct. After all, when the word can't support animals, how long can it support people?

Sad but not surprised , Jr and his friends will be happy and regular gun toting Republicans either won't care or will join the party.

Who needs wildlife anyway they just get in the way a making money .... for the already rich.

And if implemented, the proposed changes would also allow officials to consider the economic impact of protecting a species when enforcing the ESA.
Republican lawmakers have aimed to curb the reach of the ESA for years, claiming it hurts businesses, especially mining, drilling and logging.

Let me guess, a corporation wants to build something or gain access to resources under protected land. My second guess is Trump buddy wants to build a new golf course or hotel on protected land. Hopeful we see congress fighting this.

A local farmer refused to sell to a small city so they could build a park. The offer was real low. He was thinking about donating but before he could they had the property declared a wetland. So he donated it and all the legal issues and they now don't want it so are refusing the donation. So he's going to donate to a wetlands protection group. Farmed for over 100 years and now $0 value when farmland is going for $10,000 an acre.

Something needs to change.

How about that, it works both ways.

Good, I always wanted to pop a couple of bald eagles and mount them on my mantle.

Working on making woodchucks and coyotes extinct here. Getting closer by the pew, pew, pew. Squirrels and coons are already gone.

It was going to happen eventually. So I mean is it really surprising this would happen?

They had problems in Californa. There was the delta smelt, an endangered small fish on the brink of extinction due to the competition for water rights. Even the Endangered Species Act and water rationing hasn't saved it.

news.nationalgeographic.com...

There's the California Spotted owl which is also endangered due to fire prevention methods and wood salvaging - cutting down dead trees which would make perfect nests.

Then there are endangered frogs which have protection order placed on their habitats in order to stop ranchers and logging groups from using the land.

Now they can kill the king of the jungle and put it's head on their walls.

What does that make them the king of? The "King of Daddy Issues"?

All it takes for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.

In the word's of Lutherian pastor Martin Niemoller

First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out
Because I was not a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out
Because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me

And there was no one left to speak for me.



First they got out of the human right's convention
And sought to silence the press

Of course didn't trump allegedly read mein kampf all the time or something to that affect.

You do know Trump recently said Americans can bring back the heads of lions to the states, right?

No. Of course you don't.


The African lion population, which was declared vulnerable in 1996, has decreased 43 percent in the last 21 years.

Well IMO pandas are to stupid to breed, but 'Murica has a problem as it's politicians can't understand the importance of symbiosis. Remember Mufasas' speech from The Lion King? that's the simplified version. Certain species rely on co-existence for survival, like the clown fish and the coral reefs.

Politicians like to talk about the trickle down effect, However there is an ecological trickle down effect as well.

But squirrels are not endangered and neither are raccoons.
There's a minor threat to ground squirrels in the Pacific north west indicated by reduced populations but even they are not endangered.
I live in a city. Big buildings, limited green spaces, lots of streets and cars and people and we still have raccoons and squirrels and even opossum and deer. The environment least conducive to wildlife yet they still live here.
I actually saw a deer standing at a very busy intersection like she was waiting for the light to change.
