Taking Stupidity to an Entirely New Level.

by Marky Mae Brown


Yes, that pesky douchedrain Aunt Sarah is at it again. 

She isn't content to destroy the forests, wolves and polar bears in Alaska - oh not that one. Since she's already got programs in place to get all the trees razed, put pipelines through once-pristine land, and make sure the entire moose, wolf and bear populations in her state are gutted and draped over her kinfolks' couches, she's got to find some new aspect of nature to destroy.

So what's her next pet project? 

She's suing the United States to take Beluga Whales OFF the endangered species list. Yes. She wants to take the whales off the Endangered Species list. Why? Because protecting those whales will hurt the fishing industry in Alaska. Boo-hoo, cuntbag. The fishing industry's not going to be around for much longer because we've depleted the oceans and poisoned the water to the point that barely anything's left alive.

ANCHORAGE, Alaska— The state of Alaska today formally notified the federal government of its intent to sue to overturn recent protections given to the critically endangered Cook Inlet beluga whale under the Endangered Species Act. In October 2008 the Cook Inlet beluga whale was listed as endangered by the federal National Marine Fisheries Service over the objections of Governor Sarah Palin. The listing occurred following petitions and litigation by the Center for Biological Diversity and other organizations.

Alaska ’s legal action against the beluga whale marks the second time in recent months that Governor Palin’s administration has launched legal attacks against endangered species on behalf of the oil industry; in August 2008 Palin filed suit seeking to overturn federal protection for the polar bear.


And from Reuters:
Former vice presidential hopeful Gov. Sarah Palin said the energy-rich state believes the Endangered Species Act protections for belugas announced in October by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration are unwarranted.

"The State of Alaska has worked cooperatively with the federal government to protect and conserve beluga whales in Cook Inlet," the Republican governor said in a news release announcing that a 60-day notice of intent to sue had been sent to NOAA. "This listing decision didn't take those efforts into account as required by law."

Beluga whales swimming in Cook Inlet, a glacier-fed saltwater channel running from Anchorage to the Gulf of Alaska, numbered as high as 1,300 three decades ago, but has dropped to about 375 since then, according to NOAA.

Alaska's announcement it would challenge the endangered listing drew ire from environmental groups.

"Once again Governor Palin has demonstrated either a complete lack of understanding or lack of concern over the plight of endangered species," Brendan Cummings, oceans program director for the Center for Biological Diversity, said in a statement Wednesday.

Federal scientists believe overhunting by the area's Alaska Native population caused the decline in the beluga population.
What's wrong with this asshole? She makes George W. Bush look like a member of Greenpeace. She won't be content until every living thing in Alaska that isn't a white "Christian" (in cases like hers I use the term lightly - she ain't following the teachings of Jesus) is dead or dying or extinct.

Over-hunting has taken the whales' population down to just around 400.  FOUR HUNDRED.

Aunt Sarah can't be bothered with facts like that, though - she's too busy promoting teen pregnancy and converting gays. You know, important stuff. Stuff that makes America great.
