    Endangered Species Act reforms will benefit wildlife and people

    This is long over due...

    Now when we buy Greenland, we can immediately start hunting Polar bears


    Most of the lawmakers who voted for the ESA in 1973 no doubt thought they were doing something that would save the bald eagle, California condor, or some other national treasure from extinction. Little did they realize that, over the decades, the law would become a land-use tool adroitly applied by environmental groups to shut down any commercial activity they disliked.
    And for all the disruption the ESA has caused, most of it in the rural West, as a legal instrument to recover species, it has been a complete dud. Of the 1,661 species listed as threatened or endangered, only 3 percent have been recovered - paltry even for a government program.

    Stuff like this is the behind the scenes, real triumph of this admin. Prior Republican admins would never touch this.

    For those of you that have Hulu or Showtime, go check out Penn and Teller's Bullshit episode about endangered species. I'd post the video here but it's currently still copyright protected. Here's a teaser:

    The Endangered Species Act is complete Bullshit. It hasn't saved one single species since it was enacted.

    When a worker in a menial, white collar job simply skips a day (or several) without explanation to his boss or coworkers.

    They aren't allowed to make commentary like that. Unless it's to argue it doesn't go far enough.

    Spoiler alert the whole point of Penn and Teller's episode on endangered species is to highlight just how ridiculous and ineffective the Endangered Species Act is.

    For Hollywood actors Penn and Teller are surprisingly conservative in many areas.
