Amending the Endangered Species Act of 1973 with Amendments

There has always been talk of amending the Endangered Species Act of 1973 (with amendments)(ESA). But nothing ever happens. Perhaps the closest to at least getting something changed within the ESA came in the early 2000s when a handful of political candidates thought they could promote their political ambitions by supporting the amending of the ESA. Bringing some senior politicians into the mix showed hopeful signs that something was about to break in this regard until a group of back-stabbing Democrat sportsmen, driven by political and personal gain, bankrolled the Senate reelection of Dirty Harry Reid from Nevada. Part of the midnight madness of political wrangling involved a destruction of efforts to amend the ESA.

And so it goes. It took a few years but eventually, I learned just how crooked and rigged the political system is. Efforts to work within a rigged system to fix a rigged system are akin to fighting a fire with a bucket that has no bottom. Some learn, most don’t.

However, not to disappoint some of my readers, I have taken the time to thoughtfully produce a proposal to amend the ESA. Below is that proposal. I just need someone to find a sponsor.

A Bill to Amend the Endangered Species Act of 1973

Senator: Any corrupt bastard will do

Representative: Any corrupt bastard will do

The Endangered Species Act of 1973 (further referred to as the Act) is outdated and ineffective. Originally the Act was established as a tool and guideline to establish worthwhile information to assist in the prevention of allowing plant and animal species to go extinct unnecessarily while at the same time not to be contrary to the will of the people or to place an individual, or group of individuals, including private landowners, in any kind of unreasonable and difficult position. This simple purpose has become corrupt while at the same time has never proven itself as being at effective.

Therefore:

BE IT ENACTED, by the Senate and the House of Representatives of the United States of America (a corporation established by We the People, not we the people) in Congress Assembled, that:

The Endangered Species Act of 1973 with amendments is hereby declared repealed. In addition, there shall be no attempt by the Senate and/or the House of Representatives, to reestablish this law or any law related to the establishment of governmental control over so-called endangered species.
