Unhappy with government rule

COURTESY TO THE BELLINGHAM HERALDJuly 28, 2013 

Big Brother has decided the Peregrine falcon has recovered from the brink of extinction, thus all rescue attempts must be stopped. Currently volunteers rescue fledglings from nests in hazardous places, allow them to mature then release them to the wild. This is done without a cent from the taxpayers, but Big Brother has ruled it must stop. Some overpaid clerk in D.C. has decided to stop a beneficial activity that costs taxpayers nothing. Soon tax money will be spent enforcing this ukase, but Big Brother will continue whining about sequestration. Big Brother knows best.
