How “Bearing Arms” Can Work

Two legally armed citizens stopped a shootout in an Augusta, Maine Wal-Mart parking lot. Police stated they would recommend the legally armed citizens have fled the seen and “become good witnesses.” Witnesses to what? The shooting deaths of 4 people? Police state. “Daniel Chavanne walked over to the nearby scene of the shooting and dispute, […]

Maine Moose Study: All Dead Moose Had Echinococcus Cysts in Lungs

According to a report filed in the Bangor Daily News by outdoor writer George Smith, information not yet officially made public (and I have to wonder if all of the information will be made public) about Maine’s ongoing moose study, while extremely disturbing that the study is showing a terrible moose calf survival rate, it […]

Southern Maine’s Invasion of Black Bears

Here we go again! Bears are showing up in places in southern Maine, where most people necessarily do not expect to find bears wandering around in the daylight, and Maine officials are “rounding up the usual suspects.” (Note: As an explanation to the preceding quote, I refer to the movie Casablanca, in which “Louie,” the […]

Right-To-Know Panel Dog and Pony Show?

According to the Portland Press Herald, “The Right to Know Advisory Committee met Wednesday for its regular meeting and was not scheduled to address the issue. But board member A.J. Higgins, a Maine Public Broadcasting radio reporter, made a motion to take it up when the committee next meets. The motion passed unanimously.” Perhaps at […]

Maine Warden Service Needs More Women and Baiting Deer?

While the problems at the Maine Warden Service (MWS) continue to fester, much because government and law enforcement have opted to “investigate” themselves, denying any wrongdoing and to hell with anyone who thinks they might have, writers are offering their own suggestions of how to remedy the Maine Warden Service’s problems. First, one writer suggests […]

The Continued Crime of “Scientific Study” Based on Unproven Theory

When will this nonsense ever cease? Is there nothing as worthless as money and time spent on what is casually called “scientific study” when all conclusions are based on unproven theories involving climate change? Once again I find an article written about another college student writing about how moose are dying due to winter ticks […]

Stings raise questions of entrapment vs. fair prosecutions

*Editor’s Comment* – Yes, yes, yes! But what about the government’s refusal to release documents? The use of undercover agents and informants sometimes can be the only way to crack especially tough cases. The technique, however, also invites abuse. For both types of operatives, the incentive and ability to cut corners are always present. Reputations […]

Maine senators King and Collins back gun sale ban based on terror ‘watch lists’

*Editor’s Note* – Non thinking, unreasonable robots of our demented society may think this a great idea. While it would be ideological to think guns could somehow be kept out of the hands of any criminal, “terrorist” or not, due to the programming of minds in this no longer free nation, few have the capability […]

Head of Maine Warden Service Only Qualified Employee??

According to the Portland Press Herald, “As of Wednesday, the warden service said it will not be able to release the requested emails for another month or longer because the agency’s chief, Col. Joel Wilkinson, won’t be working.” It’s a crying shame that there is only one person qualified and capable to undertake FOIA requests […]

There Can Never Be Transparency In Government When Government Dictates the Transparency

Kabuki Theater: “the stylization of its drama and for the elaborate make-up worn by some of its performers.” (Source) Government: the exercise and practice of Kabuki that they learned from the Japanese during negotiations post World War II. In an opinion piece published in the Maine Sun Journal, Sen. Chris Johnson, a member of the […]
