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!”

Tom Ognibene was the former councilman for the 30th council district. Although he served his community well there are some concerns regarding some serious entanglements. In 2001, Ognibene was under investigation for his relationship with buildings consultant, Ronald Lattanzio. It was reported in the NY Times: Councilman's Actions Factor in Inquiry that in exchange for Ognibene’s assistance and political influence to help fix government variances, jobs and investigations in Lattanzio’s favor, the former councilman would receive entertainment, tickets, vacations, gifts, meals, campaign contributions, campaign activities and other services. Although no charges were brought Ognibene, his quest for a judgeship was squashed. In addition, there were reported shenanigans going on at Christ the King that included the sale of “questionable” memorabilia. Residents are also concerned about Ognibene’s health and ability to muster the strength for this special election. I think we can agree that Ognibene had his chance to represent the district; however, the 30th council district deserves a chance for new leadership.
