Though I will always question to some degree the motivation behind hunters’ conservation initiatives I find it fascinating that the current Republican Party, completely in thrall to the Tea Party budget hackers, is seriously angering one of their traditional constituencies. Will hunting conservationists cross the aisle to a party where conservationists actually exist? I am not holding my breath – but comments like this one from the linked blog post give me hope:
We’ve been so completely focused on gun rights for so long that I think we’ve forgotten that having a gun for many of us is pointless if there’s nothing and nowhere to shoot. Let’s get some more emphasis on the conservation side.
Here’s hoping hunters – and their organizations – agree!
I was reading the comments and it seemed like most of the readers agreed with the article. That’s good news. I was expecting more trolling tea party types.
Another example of how unrestrained “capitalism” leads to a situation where we sell you the rope to use to hang us.
The only hope we have is to do away with our bribocracy. The very people who decry government are the ones who shovel money at them to do their bidding.
