Will Texas join Falikornia and POORegon into the dustbins created by the environazis??

Can a small lizard kick our gas prices higher? Will Texas join the moronic states of Kalifornia and POORegon? Just like the the Spotted Owl doomed POORegon, a tiny minnow left the fertile fields of central Kalifornia bone dry and unproductive, the Dunes Sagebrush Lizard maybe next to doom oil drilling in Texas. This stuff you just cannot make up. Just ask the farmers in Kalifornia or the those who were forced out well paying jobs in the timber industry in the Pacific Northwest due to the Spotted Owl and the environazi movement. Just ask me. I know all about it firsthand. Mr. Halverson knows. He lives in the cesspool known as Portland, Oregon. I feel for you Mr. Halverson, I truly do.


Listing of lizard may shut down Texas oil
By Greg Halvorson

You can’t make this up. First, a Spotted Owl destroyed the timber industry of the Pacific Northwest, then a minnow turned the most productive agricultural land in the world into a dustbowl, and now, as energy prices spike and the economy sputters, they’re going after Texas with a scurrilous reptile.

Specifically, the Dunes Sagebrush Lizard. That’s the latest more-important-than-people critter being used to lock-up resources in the name of planet Earth. The drilling moratorium didn’t cause enough pain, so onto the Endangered Species Act - known at the Sierra Club as “Ol’ Reliable” - to make certain Texas has lizard-filled poverty.

Lizard or livelihood? That’s what’s at stake. And the pro-poverty Earth Firsters stratifying government can’t have both. If it determines that the lizard is indeed endangered, the Fish and Wildlife Service will shut down the most productive oil counties in Texas, ban roads, and slow farm activity, as it “studies the ecosystem” for up to five years.

This should please Secretary of Energy, Steven Chu, who in 2008 said, “We must increase gas taxes to force people to turn to alternative energy. Somehow, we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to levels in Europe.”

That’s the goal—Europe. Low growth. High taxes. As our economy shrivels and land is restricted, as we ignore wealth beneath our feet and slide toward uncertainty, they slither along, creating dependency…. Sauve le lezard!

They should say it in French.
