The federal government is not shy about prosecuting those who violate threatened and endangered species laws. But under a new Obama administration policy, wind farm operators are getting 30-year permits to kill protected species.

So let it be written.
So let it be done.
At the press conference, though, someone asked about windfarms, and the question was ignored, even though it was asked more than once.
I would draw a parallel with Bergdahl and the rest of the squad, and the wind turbines and the killing of eagles.
According to the Obamites, it is “good” for men to be sacrificed, as it is for eagles, when they are dedicated on the Altar of Obama’s desires of the moment..
