Re: “Controversial Wolf Hunt Derby Approved, Conservationists Sue

Boycott states that do this sort of thing and let their politicians know you are boycotting them and why.

Re: “Controversial Wolf Hunt Derby Approved, Conservationists Sue

Is this what the state of Idaho wants to be remembered for? This is sick! This is not only something that will damage their children, but will make their residents appear to be mindless barbarians. In the future I will plan my travel to go around Idaho. I beg the real residents of this state to reconsider.

Re: “Controversial Wolf Hunt Derby Approved, Conservationists Sue

Re: “Controversial Wolf Hunt Derby Approved, Conservationists Sue

If, like the biology teacher at Columbia High School in Nampa, the derby killers bring their animals alive to a classroom, place them in restraining devices, snap their necks, skin them, cut them into steaks, roasts, and chops, and then cook and eat them, then I am all for this derby.

If they eat their prey, the derby killers can call their activities "harvesting," which is the term Idaho Fish and Game uses for killing wild fish and mammals for food.

Re: “Controversial Wolf Hunt Derby Approved, Conservationists Sue

Accidents happen, if there are an accident while killing, say someone get shot, attacked, maybe someone will show concern in letting kids to use guns; it should not be allowed. It's like a minor league Al kaeda training camp. Then, we are concerned why kids shoot their classmates, open fire at malls when adults. There is no respect for any living creature. Those kids should be also put to work, or be send to war; if they can kill, they must be send to where is needed.

Objecting to the truth is not a good way to argue your point.

Re: “Controversial Wolf Hunt Derby Approved, Conservationists Sue

and "skunks and weasels"?? These animals play important roles in the ecosystem and even if killing some won't have population-level effects, it still gives children (and adults) the WRONG message about wildlife and ecology. Weasels are beautiful little animals that prey on rodents, especially underground ones like voles. I raised one from a baby a year ago and it was the most amazing thing ever, super cute and smart. I can't imagine one shooting a weasel with any sort of accuracy--they are TINY! or does this mean anything in the weasel family? Badgers too? And are children 10 years old going to take part in shooting larger animals like wolves? I pity the wolf that might be killed by a 10-year-old with poor aim.

Re: “Controversial Wolf Hunt Derby Approved, Conservationists Sue

What about the sociological effects of promoting needless killing of wildlife as "sport"? What does that teach our children about how to treat living things? Animals are not just commodities to provide humans with entertainment--they SUFFER pain and fear just like humans, and in social animals, possibly even more so.

Re: “Controversial Wolf Hunt Derby Approved, Conservationists Sue

"contestants will seek to kill the most wolves and other wildlife for cash and prizes."

"We're stereotyped as a bunch of Idaho rednecks out to kill as many animals as we can," he told Reuters last month."

Is that not EXACTLY what the aim of this 'contest' is?

Re: “Catholic Bishops Vote to Revise Rules for Health Care Systems

Religion has no place in business, especially healthcare. It's especially bad because they also use it as an excuse for tax exemption which they abuse (see St. Luke's) to raise prices and extort the community.

Re: “Obama Plan: Shield Up to 5 Million Immigrants From Deportation

'Maggie Lin,' these 'illegals' do most of the agricultural labor and meat processing in this country. Who's going to do those jobs 'IF' it was even the least bit feasible to send them all back???!!! Don't say 'mericans' that are here and need jobs. They could be doing those jobs now if they had any 'cojones.'

Re: “Obama Plan: Shield Up to 5 Million Immigrants From Deportation

The MAJORITY of this country is against this.

But he wants to keep his "promise" to ILLEGAL ALIENS.

To Obama, ILLEGAL ALIENS are far more important than tax-paying law-abiding American citizens.

Already tens of millions unemployed.

Already tens of millions who can’t afford to live. We must now purchase health insurance we cannot afford and do not want or need (mine is $450/month… contrast this to my $25/month auto insurance from Insurance Panda… or my $15/month renters insurance from Eagle… both private-enterprise!)

Border-hopping, law-breaking ILLEGAL ALIENS - that's what Obama wants as his legacy.

He will weaken the DIMicrat party for years if he tries this.

What a traitor - taking away jobs from US CITIZENS and giving them to ILLEGAL ALIENS.
