It is official:THIS never existed
Intriguing huh?



This is an undated photo of a Prebles meadow jumping mouse captured in the Rocky Flats Environmental Technology Site buffer zone. The Preble's meadow jumping mouse, once seen as a costly impediment to development, is now viewed by the government as a critter that never really existed - and no longer in need of federal protection under the Endangered Species Act. The Interior Department said that new DNA research shows the nine-inch mouse that can launch itself a foot and a half into the air and switch direction in mid-flight is probably identical to another variety of mouse common enough not to need protection. (AP Photo/Boulder Daily Camera, ho)

Jumping Mouse Loses Federal Protection

Nearly 31,000 acres have been designated critical mouse habitat for the Preble's mouse along streams in Colorado and Wyoming, including large parts of Colorado's Front Range, where sprawl is booming amid the foothills and the prairie. The mouse also has blocked construction of reservoirs despite a continued drought there.

8. Again--where is the public outrage over this?
How exactly did the people of this country become so blinded to what was really going on and what this administration's true agenda is??

11. I know people who still say that we didn't go to Iraq for oil.
We know there are four overlapping reasons, but earth resources are always at the source of this cabal's existence - whether it is to pave it over or speed through it or to chop it down or to extract it from the earth and own it.

They don't have any flash of sensitivity to the 'religions' of the first inhabitants of this continent - to touch the earth lightly.
