The diatribe left a bad taste in my mouth - we've already got too many immigrants - legal and illegal - the author seems to presume to speak for the German immigrant. Perhaps the immigrant should speak for herself.
Quit whining Debby - there's no doubt that experienced hunters who have spent years hunting an area know when game populations are down. Of course you being a non-hunter (I assume) understand very little about the issue. All you've got is your emotional opposition to hunting. Get over it - hunters are not going away.
She should check out the acres burned in the 1910 burn, and the 1930s - kind of makes today's acreage burned appear not so alarming.
Dan Brooks argues that Van Valkenburg should allow the DOJ to investigate because he's got nothing to hide. Well then, I guess Dan Brooks wouldn't mind the local gestapo searching his home for contraband, since I assume he would say he has nothing to hide. Dan should wise up.
Geez - you assume the dog owner is telling the truth - a very nebulous assumption. You also reveal an anti-hunting attitude, and your assertion that a dog caught in a trap cannot be removed by its owner seems absurd. Just go ahead and release your dog, in the extremely rare event that it's caught in a trap. Dogs are not designated fur bearers.
Big deal - climate change has been occurring naturally for millions of years, yet some simple minded people get upset when change occurs. The science shows that today's climate and global temperature are not unusual, unnatural, nor unprecedented. Alarmists were forecasting an imminent ice age due to cooling 1945 - 1977, and there's been no warming since 1995 - temperature has remained static.
The problem with alarmists is that they are extremely ignorant and possibly incapable of understanding some scientific concepts. For example, there is no correlation between atmospheric carbon dioxide levels and global temperatures - so therefore, how can anyone claim that co2 is driving global temperature? The amount of co2 is such that adding more has little effect, due to the physical properties of the co2 molecule.
Improvements that benefit the community shouldn't be charged to individuals, but to all taxpaying residents of the city.
