Obama’s Pulled Pork and Fried Toad Legs
We are in the midst of the most devastating financial crisis since the Great Depression and the Obama Administration wants to give $100,000 to the Wyoming Fish and Game Department to breed toads!
Here is an excerpt from the approved grant…
Wyoming toads were listed as endangered in 1984 under the federal Endangered Species Act. They were abundant in the Laramie River Basin in the early 1950s, but populations crashed suddenly around 1975. There is now only a single wild population, encompassing three lakes.
Possible causes of decline are listed below, but evidence is scant. The remaining population is infected with the Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis fungus. A recovery team was formed to address the problems of this highly endangered amphibian. A captive breeding program was initiated and is ongoing. Most recently, a Safe Harbor Agreement has been proposed, which will allow captive bred animals to be released at disease free sites.
It is bad enough Obama has bailed out the banks and automobile industry, but now he wants to bail out toads!
When do the American people stand up and shout, “If Obama keeps creating his change, we won’t have any change left in our pockets!”
