Well, if the Spotted Own Surveyor has destroyed the Owl's habitat in New Mexico. And the Rodeo Fire has destroyed a huge habitat for Spotty Owl, looks like we can take this bird off of the ESA...Right???

Now if only they would start a fire in the UN building, we can start handing out medals.

This story is a perfect example of "burning something down to make a point."

Dumb whacko environmentalist.

Hang him from the highest tree in the forest - old growth, of course.

The government is enacting all kinds of crackdowns to prevent the evil citizen from starting a fire. The government is the worst offender here.

Pinging you!

Think the Mexican Spotted Owl wears a sombrero and carries a green card for proper identification?

#5 - LOL, Tad. Good one!

Hey, I want one of those cushy bird survey jobs. I'll sit on my patio with a mai-tai in hand and count all the egrets that gather there. I'll probably qualify for a nice pension, too.

I come cheap. All I need for equipment is a hose and a brush.

I was going to say...'spots'. But I guess its more than that.

The environmentalists are looking very unamerican these days.

I heard it mentioned on the Fox Report last night that the motive might be more jobs, since the Apaches are routinely hired as forest firefighters. Pretty despicable if true.

There is no difference between the Mexican Spotted Owl and the Spotted Owl of the Northwest. They are the same species. Obviously the Mexican spotted owl doesn't need "old growth forests" to live. But the enviro wackos will never admit that because then the terrible, nasty lumbermen will start cutting trees cown and reducing lumber costs.

Thanks for this heads up!

A simple way to stop all of this nonsense would be to arrest all card carrying enviralists as terrorists or potential terrorists. Send them to the worse geographical area we can find in America until the war with terrorism is over.

Whatever justice this enviral terrorist gets, will not be enough! They are all mentally ill and present a clear and present danger to the rest of us.

What makes the MEXICAN SPOTTED OWL different from a regular Owl ?

The Mexican owl has a Mexican Accent, a faint mustache, greased back feathers, where's a Sombrero, drinks tequila, and prefers hot sauce on his rodents with a side of refried beans.
Depending on where he lives, he may also have pneumatic shocks in his nest.

The Mexican Spotted Owls, known as Tio Joses and Tia Juanitas are here illegally from Mexico.

They live in free spotted owl housing, and our native spotted owls are forced to "donate" 33% of the food they find to feed the Mexican Spotted Owls.

The Tio Jose and Tia Juanita owls have bilingual Owl translators for them and their school children.

Gray Davis has registered them to vote for him in this up coming election in Kali this November.

Plus, these Mexican Spotted Owls use the same investment broker that Martha Stewart used! They, also, have in the past donated heavily to the reelect your local Rat campaigns. Some posed on Goron, when he was looking like a tree in the debates to lend realism to the fact that he really was an old growth NutWood.

You know those posters who blow into these wildfire threads, say "BURNING IS GOOD FOR FORSTS AND LOGGING IS BAD" [paraphrase, of course] ??

I knew the environazis had taken contol of the EPA and Forestry division. I am REALLY glad the FBI is now involved...they had better produce results, because I have a really, REALLY bad feeling this is the beginning, not the end...

If a few more of these 'environmentalists' get into the act, we can just declare the burd extinct and be done with it.

BTW, for the record, Land Surveyors don't 'survey' owls! :o)
