    While other companies pay hundreds of thousands of $dollars$ or millions of $dollars$ in fines for wildlife kills, Obama's wind industry companies get a free taxpayer financed ride and don't pay any fines for wildlife kills(even Eagles).

    Hell, they're just big scavengers. I'd rather have cheap electricity.

    What's next? You gonna cry for the spotted owl too?

    And?


    Eagles are mostly trash birds. And we've got plenty of them up here, we can ship you a couple to replace the ones that get killed because they're too stupid to avoid a turbine.

    All I am saying("IF" you have read the story?) is that Obama's wind energy cronies are getting a free "taxpayer financed" ride, pay no fines while other companies are compelled to pay. Par for the course, business as usual, double standards/two faced politics coming from the leftists/Obama WH.

    Same thing with the "Lead Bullet" issue in California----how many Condors have gone through the wind turbine "Condor sausage grinder" and the lib MSM says nothing. But the the lib MSM does demonize shooters/lead bullets and their "effect" on the Condor. Aren't Condors scavangers too and eat large amounts of carrion? Hypocrisy and double standards run rampant in the lib MSM! :steamed:
