Allowing eagles to be killed is no problem if you are trying to destroy the symbols of American freedom. :Obounce:

Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

Those turbines won't last that long.  Many are already obsolete and close to their maximum designed service life.

Not to mention an unsightly blight on the landscape.

When we drove across country   a few years ago, we saw them all over the place. Then a few years after that we drove a the same time of the year past those wind farms, most of the turbines were offline.

Compare those big, ugly wind turbines to the little oil and gas wells, that look inconspicuous along the roads.

And they actually provide us with ENERGY........


(I think wind farms are the ugliest thing to hit the environment since strip mining).

Don't forget, with liberalism the INTENT is more important than the outcome so the windmill program will be considered a "success" no matter how unsuccessful. 13291
