These State Birds May Be Forced
Out of Their States as the World Warms

Original Article

Washington - Each state in America has an official state bird, usually an iconic species that helps define the landscape. Minnesota chose the common loon, whose haunting wails echo across the state’s northern lakes each summer. Georgia picked the brown thrasher, a fiercely territorial bird with a repertoire of more than 1,000 song types. But as the planet warms and birds across the country relocate to escape the heat, at least eight states could see their state birds largely or entirely disappear from within their borders during the summer, according to a new study.


The New York Times missed the chance, or were conflicted to acknowledge, that these birds were able to immigrate due to "open borders" in the sky. Why would they stay in one place where man has taken away their previous source of shelter and food. So, it wasn't climate change that caused their forced relocation. Greta, it was Mother Nature protecting her own.

These people are all evolutionists anyway. I have never understood why so-called climate change means anything to them when their world view is that everything is and SHOULD be constantly changing. And why do they think that this exact point in time is somehow the best time that has ever occurred so we must save everything just as it is right now?

How many of these state birds get sliced and diced ir quick fried on their migratory paths by liberal wind and solar farms. Monarch butterfly's, bats... all get run through the blender by alternative energy sources, taxpayers subsidize, yet only produce power about 10% on average any day of the year. You can be certain the liberal donors who 'manage these things get a hefty salary.

Here in upstate NY, Cuomo is giving away tax money right and left for more bird and bat chopping windmills. I've already seen a drop in the bird population. After an initial landing of 7-9 robins in the Spring (which used to be 30 or more), I never saw a robin after that. The upstate counties need the windmill money because Cuomo and his 100% demonrat legislature imposes unfunded mandates each and every year and property taxes are already out of sight so what's a county going to do except allow more windmills for tax money. You get to pay taxes for more windmills, get to pay for a more expensive price per kw, then you get to pay more taxes in the end to tear the whole thing down when it reaches its shelf life. One country demanded the developer include tear down costs and guess what, they folded on the deal and dropped out. It's a scam.

Victoria’s Secret is laying off about 15 percent of the brand’s employees at its Columbus, Ohio, headquarters as the beleaguered lingerie chain struggles to reshape its image and the chief executive of its parent company remains under scrutiny for his ties to Jeffrey Epstein.

Washington - Millions of retirees will get a modest 1.6% cost-of-living increase from Social Security in 2020, an uptick with potential political consequences in an election year when Democrats are pushing more generous inflation protection. The increase amounts to $24 a month for the average retired worker, according to estimates released Thursday by the Social Security Administration. Following a significant boost this year, the cost-of-living adjustment, or COLA, for 2020 reverts to its pattern of moderate gains. But seniors and advocates complain that the inflation yardstick used to determine the annual adjustment doesn’t adequately reflect their costs, mainly for health care.

California Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom signed 15 gun-related bills into law Friday, tightening the state's already-stringent Second Amendment restrictions. One of the bills, which expands a so-called "red flag" law to allow co-workers, employers and educators to seek gun violence restraining orders against firearms owners they fear are a danger to themselves and others, was vetoed twice by Newsom's predecessor, Jerry Brown. Newsom also signed a companion bill allowing the gun violence restraining orders to last one and five years, although the gun owners could petition to end those restrictions earlier. The bill also allows judges to issue search warrants at the same time as they grant the orders.
