Great read-entertaining, yet sadly quite true. Another good example of putting wildlife ahead of humans is out west (WY, MT). When in Wyoming last year, I was informed there were a great many ranches for sale in northern Wyoming and southern Montana, because the wolf population was decimating the ranchers’ livestock. Apparently, we’ve now chosen to PC our way to putting hard-working ranchers out of business, in favor of protecting the swelling wolf population.p>If there are any liberals out there that are aware of a good “wolf whisperer,” they could use some help out west. I’m sure if the wolves and Homo sapiens could just sit down and talk, all this would resolve itself. I personally would like to see a good wolf whisperer coax the wolf population to become vegans. That would solve the crisis for the ranchers, but I imagine we’d see an outcry from the greens…. as gangs of scrawny wolves descended upon their organic lettuce fields, leaving nothing behind but a few rotting heads of lettuce, large paw prints, and empty ranch dressing bottles. br> — RR br> Wisconsin /p> p> A dozen years ago when my son was in grade school and in love with killer whales and wolves, he brought home book after book from the library about these noble predators. The books said there had never been a documented case of a wolf attack on a human in North America, and there had never been a documented case of an Orca attack on humans period. Then, he brought home a book that described how a killer whale had tried to break the ice around an arctic explorer so he would fall into the sea. Somehow, this incident did not merit someone’s notion of a documented attack. I wondered how many other cases failed to meet the proper definitions. No doubt the predator would have to clearly announce that it recognized its victim was human before we could blame it for the attack. br> — Bill Boyd
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
