Jesus SP, you won't be happy until you've consumed the last fish and cut down the last tree.

Then WA State will look like Texas.

"Snake River sockeye salmon are rebounding"

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

removing dams?

They - we? have been going through a dam removal process in the southern
Appalachians to restore the rivers.

They went in for flood control reasons in some cases, power reasons for
some cases, and some where you just kind of wonder - some from the
1930s.

Of course many liberals, Democrats and environmentalists have been working to tear out dams in Washington and Oregon as part of the War on the Working Class. That includes three huge dams on the Snake River, which environmentalists took a run at during the Clinton administration, although in the end Clinton rejected that campaign --- I give him credit for that.

Digging up those dams would have eliminated huge amounts of VERY CHEAP hydroelectric power and eliminated the ability to use barge traffic from transportation on the river, all in the name of salmon that aren't special except in the imaginations of biologists and which human can't consume anyway since they are "endangered species."

While they weren't successful in getting the political branches to dig up these dams, they continue their campaign to destroy them through the courts.

They'll be back.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

The ones removed down here have been court ordered - although exactly
how the case-law breaks down is not anything I have read about or been involved.

Yes. That's the only excuse for allowing any life on this planet - can we eat it?

. . . and of course this same line of reasoning argues against trees so we might as well clear cut the forests down to rubble (fruit and nut trees being the only exception).

Nothing will be left except cockroaches and Twinkies. And thanks to Obama we won't even have the Twinkies.

cost to the public of nearly $9,000 per fish.

But the meat is very flavorful and the fish is surprisingly large.

Plus, at that price, it's mil-spec fish.

You get to pay for the fish, but not eat it. It's an endangered species after all ---- are you a barbarian?
