Nice one subs.

One might say the judge gave Trump a Tigar uppercut

Once again, sensible people cleaning up Republican messes, same as always.

Supreme Court to rule that the Endangered Species Act is unconstitutional, because people didn't give a damn about endangered species in the 18th century.

Don't be ridiculous. As if they're going to go that far in making up a rationalization.

More like, "the ESA is unconstitutional because christofascist jesus says so. Now eat that pangolin steak, citizen."

We are heading into a massive crisis caused by the corrupt, extreme-right court delegitimizing itself.

Why would you roll back protections? Who is the big money pushing for that? Maybe put those folks out in the wild and issue hunting licenses to the homicidal psychopaths that seem to be overflowing the banks of this nation.

You're actually correct. Unless the state's outlawed it, any yahoo in the US w/ enough money can buy a couple of tigers & speed-bred them to death, taking the cubs from their mom immediately on birth so people can take pictures w/ them till they're too big to be compliant & are then chopped up & sold. That's some of what the Big Cat Public Safety Act is looking to prevent. Maybe someday there will be more tigers in the wild than are in American backyards.

The biggest issue causing species to go extinct is loss of habitat. Therefore, endangered species status for an animal or plant leads to habitat protection, or, put in Republicanese, land use restrictions.

Those who want to drill, mine, pollute, log, develop or otherwise use property in a non-habitat friendly manner tend to oppose species being listed as endangered.

And, to be fair, it can be a pain in the ass - if a species called BigMax's Backyard Mosquito was ever declared endangered, I might have to cope with a lot of regulations I wouldn't like (no citronella candles?  WTF?). But once a species is gone, it's done... it's not like you can or should err on the side of the landowner.

That will be reversed on appeal.

There is no way a tiger can be an impartial judge for that case.

Genesis 1:26-28
26And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

27So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

28And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

Thank God! So many habitats threatened or destroyed for that stupid wall alone, they need to give the Act more teeth

He's never going to recover financially from this....

Or the debts. Or the russians. Or the lawsuits. Or the lies. Or the numerous credible accusations of sexual assault. Or the skeletons in the closet. Or the live ones in the closet.
