Re: “Barry Usher and the disingenuity of bike 'safety'

Totally agree with you. This happens every legislature--time is wasted (and time is money) on bills that should never see the light of day because they're unconstitutional, or represent someone's pet peeve or personal passion, or are just plain stupid. Many years ago a legislator introduced a bill requiring bicyclist to ride AGAINST traffic. It was a nonstarter but still, it took a certain amount of time and personnel to enter it into the system. Last session, it was some crazy notion that humane groups shouldn't be allowed to help law enforcement rescue animals from horrendous situations because humane groups represent a terrorist threat. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YhQ5oeODN6…

Re: “Not very sporting

Not only setting it and baiting it...but walking away from it. Who, other than a trapper, walks away from a loaded weapon and leaves it unattended for 24 or 48 hours...or longer?

Re: “Shots fired

Helen should verify her "facts" (excerpt):
"In other words, Kennesaw residents were required to own guns ... save for those Kennesaw residents who couldn't afford guns, couldn't use guns, couldn't legally own guns, or simply didn't want to have guns. Essentially, Kennesaw residents were never actually required to own guns, making most assertions about mandatory gun ownership and crime rates in that town highly problematic."

Re: “Wilderness

Utah Senators Mike Lee and Orrin Hatch have miserable voting records on environmental issues (League of Conservation Voters, National Environmental Scorecard); Lee has a 4% positive score for 2015 and a 10% lifetime score; Hatch has 0% for 2015 and 10% lifetime. If you want to undermine the Wilderness Act of 1964, looks like they're you're guys.

Re: “Go Fourth

"Part of that is just being a good citizen, because when you shoot off loud fireworks it can disturb your neighbors."

You don't have to be a good citizen in the county. Neighbors? Hell with 'em. Scared dogs and wildlife? Too bad. And it's not just one night either. It starts when the stands open and goes beyond the 4th.

Re: “Dubious anniversary

Predators are STILL under fire, despite what we now know. It was just a few years ago that the Rocky Mtn. Elk Foundation director said, “To keep wolf populations controlled, states will have to hold hunts, shoot wolves from the air and gas their dens."

Re: “Beatles and pigs

Thank you for an awesome response, Chris, and no--you are NOT the only one! "Humane slaughter" is a euphemism designed to assuage the consciences of producers and consumers. But there is no humane way to take the life of someone who values his/her life and doesn't want to die.
