Gotta think like a bird, not whirly either.

I love pets don't get me wrong, and I hate to be cynical...but how much did it cost taxpayers for the Fire Truck and Helicopter to save a man trying to RESCUE a $2,000.00 bird??? He sounds like a bird brain with a pet that has more sense than he.

Its notlike that the guy had planned on getting all the rescue vehicals involved. He was chasing a very dear animal that he loves very much and ended up in a bad situation. It happens. I am also a owner of a cockatoo and if she was ever to get away from me i am sure that i would also be a bird brain and end up with helicopters hanging overhead. It happens. Lets worry more about the loss of money and lives Bush is doing to us than what it costs to save a guy in a tree. Go U.S.A.

Like I don't worry about those things as well? This thread has nothing to do with Bush. Maybe I should have done some Bush bashing here like you. Go birds!

Maybe you need to spend more time hating Bush. As if Clinton was an Angel.
