We have a lot of mosquitoes & bugs destroying trees because we don't have the songbird population to eat them. Our survival depends on birds, bees, & bats. We need to protect them.

So, the dismantling of a highly successful program that is extremely important is now going by the wayside??!!.....and where o' where is the money going? Oh, I know....the same place all the important monies go when our country sends it's false messages of "WAR, MILITARY, INVADE, KILL, TAKE OVER"....what has our country turned into if we cannot protect the tiny creatures on whom our very survival depends!?
Oh, the arrogance of humans in our Congress.....the wolves were sacrificed on a "Budget Bill", now the migrating birds.............who is next, and who has been crossed out as 'unimportant' because the bush era broke this country for pete's sake.!!!!................doesn't anyone listen and learn? Now the Dems will be blamed, and maybe rightfully so.
What a fool I was to even believe that there would be a majority of politicians who would really care about the animals and the environment.................just a thought here,,,,,will this be a precedent so that wind generators can be installed anywhere, even in the path of the migrating birds? It's not like N. America doesn't have WIND everywhere....oooo, I'm so mad!
