Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine Gets it Mostly Right

Below is a copy of a letter Executive Director of the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine (SAM), David Trahan, included in his latest report. According to the letter, SAM has rescinded its support of Central Maine Power Company’s plans to cut another power line through Northwestern Maine in order to provide additional power sources from Canada to Massachusetts.

According to Trahan, SAM polled its members and “an overwhelming percentage of our members are opposed to the NECEC Corridor extension.”  He further goes on to write that of the remainder of the members polled, “most are undecided and only a small percentage support the effort.”

Having said that, it is a bit puzzling to me why the executive director then continues to tell CMP, “…we will now take a more neutral, neither for nor against, posture.”

While it is no question SAM is eating some crow, can anyone with a straight face rescind support by assuming a position of neither for nor against and be carrying out the wishes of the “overwhelming” majority of SAM members?

I think I understand the difficult position of SAM’s “humility” in this announcement, of which many are grateful for, while extolling the support of CMP allowing access to their many power lines, but has SAM now actually spoken and spoken honestly for its members by gleaning their survey results for overwhelming opposition to the project while attempting to somehow remain neutral?

Hmmmm.

Insanity Is Illogical

Yesterday I received an email that contained a bunch of stuff intended to show the reader how illogical certain modes of thinking, or lack thereof, make little sense and actually brings to light the insanity on display in this country today. I thought instead of just copying and pasting what I received, I would enhance the discussion a bit in hopes that instead of asking whether certain beliefs are logical or contain any common sense, a reader might realize the insanity of it all. Here goes.

I have no idea if any statistics presented in this email are true or false nor do I intend to waste my time trying to figure it out. This is about insanity not about man’s truths.

The email began by stating that 11 teenagers die everyday as the result of texting while driving, suggesting that gun control freaks who have sought to have the age of gun ownership raised to 21, should consider the same for cellphone ownership. There is a difference, evidently between a willingness to die or cause someone else to die so long as that choice is theirs. Odd that people can’t see that all people want a choice, not to be dictated to. Insane.

The email also suggested that if “gun control” actually worked, then Chicago would resemble the mythological TV show The Andy Griffith Show located in the fake town of Mayberry. We know this comparison is just too far out. Mayberry RFD has but a few thousand people, those raised to be respectful and care about all other people, careful not to impose on others and trample their rights. Chicago has a few million people, the bulk of which couldn’t give two rat’s behinds about you or anything about you. And we haven’t even talked about guns. Ridding Chicago of guns will not change Chicago. It’s the people stupid!

The Third Scenario presented is as follows: The Second Amendment makes more women equal than the entire feminist movement. As it is written, I guess I’m just too stupid to understand what it means. On to the next.

Fourth, there are more than 300 million legal gun owners in the US and a trillion rounds of ammo. Remember, I don’t know if this is true. I would guess it’s not. I’m quite sure there are more guns than this and along with it more ammo. The email suggests that if legal gun ownership was THE problem, we wouldn’t have any trouble knowing about it.

This is quite misleading but I guess we are supposed to overlook that and not miss the point. You see, most legal gun owners are of the character that they mind their own business and seldom turn to violence in order to force their choice of lifestyle onto others. (hanging by a thread)

Five, nobody blamed the gun (rifle) when JFK was assassinated in Texas in 1963. They didn’t? Perhaps the question might want to be asked if it was a rifle that killed him. Again, we shouldn’t miss the point. The real point here is that in 1963 the people of this nation were not yet ready to be mass brainwashed into being fearful of honest people having guns. The mass media, as the echo chamber for the Global Power Structure, have done a masterful job of creating an insane attitude about guns. Had this programed event been in place in 1963 you can bet your bottom dollars insane people would have blamed the gun. Had that worked, I’m sure Ronald Reagan would have been attacked with a wet noodle instead of a “automatic revolver” as the press so intelligently told the people at that time.

Here’s a good one. According to whoever devised this email, the NRA murders nobody each year and receives no federal money to not do that. Planned Parenthood murders 350,000 unborn babies using a half a billion dollars of yours and my tax dollars.

I wouldn’t go so far as to say the NRA kills nobody. I read some of the crap they say and do and it’s killing me. Too bad there weren’t more people who felt the way I do about the NRA and the government-controlled instigators that they are – disguised of course as fighters for your Second Amendment rights. I might add, BUT DON’T GO LOOK!

The email says it has no problem with background checks when it comes to being able to own a firearm. They insist that the same should be required for immigrants and voting. That’s where they are all wrong. The Second Amendment does not state the right to keep and bear arms is contingient upon passing a background check, neither was it stipulated that immigrants needed a background check (provided that went through the legal process of immigration), nor did you need one in order to vote.

We can thank all the moron, fake “right-to-bear-arms” promoters for ushering us further into tyrannical rule and the destruction of inalienable rights who promote those deceitful “reasonable” limitations on rights. Refer to Scenario Number Four above. Where once the country consisted of millions of people of good character who would never dream of pleading for laws to limit the freedoms of all. That character that I wrote of above is dwindling away as fast as cellphones are destroying our very existence.

In number eight, it begins to get a bit contrived. They say for those people who claim we don’t need smoke-detectors in our homes; that’s what fire departments are for, they say that’s how they feel when someone tells them they don’t need a gun. Don’t miss the point…if there really is one. I can still choose (at least where I live) to have a smoke detector or not. I’ve pretty much lost the choice to own and use a firearm the way I want to. Again we need to refer to Scenario Number Four. The disintegration of any moral character paves the way for insanity and the forcing of idealistic beliefs and perverse lifestyles onto all others.

The email ends with the most idiotic comparison imaginable…that is if you are an honest and intelligent person. I’ll copy it here just as it came to me in the email: “Folks keep talking about another Civil War. One side knows how to shoot and has a trillion bullets. The other side has crying closets and is confused about which bathroom to use. How do you think that’s going to end?”

To accept this comparison, one has to believe that only gun owners are sane and will line up on one side of a civil war, and anyone without a gun is insane and will man the other side. I’m not even sure there is a point to be made here other than the author ain’t too bright.

There’s just a whole bunch of confusion displaying itself as insanity. We have become insane because we have taken our eyes off our CREATOR OF ALL THINGS! Man has no answers. Man, and his filthy flesh is the problem. If there need be legitimate talk of civil wars, then try to understand the real reason there would be one. It isn’t about gun rights or abortion rights. It’s about your relationship with your CREATOR.

Former Maine Deer Biologist Gerry Lavigne Questions Next Year’s Deer Hunting Opportunities

At the end of November past (2018) I reported on the Maine deer harvest. Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (MDIFW) officials seemed eager to announce a big increase in the deer harvest attributing most of the increase to a record number of “Any-Deer Permits” issued in parts of Central and Southern Maine.

In my report I made the following statements: “There’s a problem with issuing record numbers of ADPs, even if the majority of those ADPs are issued for Wildlife Management Districts (WMD) with more deer per square mile than managers desire – and one of those problems is what we have seen this season with hunters being able to hunt on lots of snow (in many places) for extended periods of time (three weeks in most of Western Maine).

“I don’t have any scientific data to support any claim that it seems that it is in those areas with the most snow, falling on the earliest dates, are in those WMDs where deer per square mile is extremely sparse. With early snow in those areas combined with a record number of ADPs, have we harvested too many deer? What will this cost us?”

On November 27, 2018, the MDIFW issued a Press Release announcing the results of deer tagging as compiled by their new digital tagging system. The Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine (SAM) published that Press Release in their newspaper which also included an “Editor’s Note” from Gerry Lavigne, former head deer biologist for the MDIFW.

Below is the “Editor’s Note”: “The strong finish to the 2018 deer harvest is not without its downsides. Snow accumulation in the western mountains and northern Maine during the latter half of November was sufficient to cause deer to enter their yards a month earlier than normal. Since then, cold temps and subsequent storms have increased the snowpack. This made for a higher success rate during black powder season. Hunters took a LOT of bucks during the final three weeks of hunting, likely many more than would normally be harvested. This could impact buck availability during 2019.

Because yarding occurred a full month earlier than normal in the northern half of the state, deer could be in for a tough winter. If severe yarding conditions prevail, above-average winter losses among bucks and does could negatively impact deer availability in 2019. Let’s hope for a big thaw, and soon!

Maine Legislature To Consider 14 “Gestapoesque” Gun Bills

With the Democrats taking over the Maine Legislature, as near as I can tell they plan to introduce a minimum of 12 gun control, rights destroying bills that will do nothing to stop what it is the progressives believe they can stop. So, what else is new?

Without having the text of each and every bill, at this point all we can do is go by the titles of the bills. For those with a brain, we know that most bill’s titles are deceptive at best and an outright lie in most cases.

If we examine the titles, the Democrats intend to ban large capacity magazines (whatever that is); protect children by requiring safe storage of guns (whatever that is); mandatory background checks for anyone who even thinks about a gun (whatever that is); a prohibition that would stop “extremely dangerous and suicidal individuals” (whatever that is) from owning a gun; allow municipalities to ban guns wherever they choose; establish a “voluntary” (whatever that is) gun collection day (all unwanted guns can be dropped off at my house); waiting periods they believe will reduce suicides and violent crimes (chuckle).

What a waste of time.

I would suppose we can also expect abortions to increase, Welfare to explode, illegal immigration to expand exponentially, unemployment to go up and free CELLPHONES for everyone.

Trump To Open Some National Wildlife Refuges for Hunting?

As regular readers might expect, this is where I will insert, “WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!”

According to some media stories, the Trump Administration is intending to allow certain National Wildlife Refuge employees to go back to work during this FAKE “Shutdown.” And of course, some think it’s for hunting and others think it’s so that the public won’t feel so much strain and stress from the Government’s FAKE SHUTDOWN.

The upside to this orchestrated, quasi shutdown, is the criminal bastards in D.C. are not so active destroying this country by making fake laws for fake reasons.

Personally I think every last one of the evil slime-balls should be recalled and sent to the Antarctic where they are the closest they can get to Hell before actually being in it.

Hipsters Are The New Hunters?

A group of veteran hunters set out last month in a forest northeast of Atlanta with apprentices. Among them, a former vegetarian, a Haitian-born grad student and a farmers-market manager. They wore camouflage and carried crossbows.

They were aiming to kill white-tailed deer.<<<Read More>>>> (Subscription required)
