It Seems the Brainwashed-Solution to any Problem is More Government

I was reading George Smith’s article about nuisance wildlife and in particular paid attention to the part asking who should fund dealing with “nuisance” wildlife. According to Smith, it costs $880 million dollars a year to deal with “nuisance” wildlife.

Nuisance wildlife are costing us a staggering amount of money: $880 million/year in the northeast. Car/critter collisions are the most expensive problems, averaging $1,412 in Maine.

There seems to be somewhat of a debate as to who should be responsible for dealing with “nuisance” wildlife and above all, who should pay for it.

Here’s a solution, the bulk of which will fall on deaf ears and be disregarded because we are so much programmed to be irresponsible, fellow human hating robots that the ONLY solution that can be envisioned is more of the same thing, i.e. more government. Why do we persist in calling on government, experiencing, always, failure, and yet, turn right around and ask for more?

The first thing that should be done is to work out a definition of “nuisance.” Without such, all is pointless. A property owner should be responsible for whatever happens on their property, including dealing with “nuisance” (well-defined) wildlife. But they are not allowed to.

Government interferes. Government makes regulations. Government caves in to animal rights groups and other perverted, totalitarian, useless eater leftists and, like everything else in our lives these days, must have our rear ends wiped clean by more and bigger government.

When government mandates all actions, then government should pay. When government tells you you need a permit, or you need first to call law enforcement (including code enforcement officials) before you can act to protect yourself and your private property, then government should pay the bills resulting from the consequences of government bureaucracy.

A great chunk of the $880 million dollars spent on dealing with nuisance wildlife could be saved and/or spent on better programs…or by just saving the taxpayers a few bucks. Why should I have to pay for a stinking skunk, living under your porch, to be removed? If I have one, I’ll deal with it my way. I once had rights. A damned skunk has them now.

If you or government wants property owners to cough up the expense of dealing with nuisance wildlife, then let the property owner do and pay for it and government butt out.

But this is pipe-dreaming. It will never happen because the only remedy anybody knows of these days is, “Where’s my Government?” I’m the radical because I think the correct way. Go figure.



Deer Season in Northeast Ends on Tough Note

“The early arrival of winter has certainly made for an interesting end to big game seasons. The snow caused deer to yard up already in some areas, and guys I have talked to have seen very little movement over the past couple of weeks.”<<<Read More>>>


Eastern Wolf Declared Full Species

*Editor’s Note* – I sent this email to several on my email list. I thought I would share it with readers.

Some of you might remember that back in March I warned that Maine should prepare itself for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to figure out a way to declare a species or subspecies of wolf that they could list as an endangered species here in Maine and all of the Northeast. http://tomremington.com/2012/03/03/maine-should-prepare-for-a-wolf-esa-listing-from-u-s-fish-and-wildlife-service/

In May I explained, in a response to the Maine Wolf Coalition’s demand for wolf protection, what would happen to hunting and trapping in our state if a species of wolf was declared endangered and offered protection. http://tomremington.com/2012/05/15/protection-of-wolves-in-maine-would-destroy-what-is-left-of-fragile-economy-and-ecosystem/

Today, we are one step close to seeing this happen. Laugh at me if you wish but it is my opinion, based on historic evidence of how the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, along with their non governmental environmentalist freaks partners, have operated to achieve their agendas. Today, the USFWS has concluded a study in which they claim that the Eastern wolf is a full, stand alone species of wolf. http://www.fws.gov/midwest/wolf/delisting/pdf/WolfTaxonomyByChambersEtAlSubmittedMS.pdf

It’s a mongrel! Nothing more. Never will be anything more unless reintroduction is done, and then it will still interbreed with the nasty dog we already have!

This study, the basis of which is rooted in the controversy that the USFWS have themselves created over species taxonomy, is a fraud and state governments, along with individual sportsmen and their organizations, need to call these criminals out on this. Historically, the USFWS, and just as recently, President Obama and Ken Salazaar, have used species and subspecies manipulation in order to create Distinct Population Segments where it is politically advantageous to do so.

I warned months ago that the USFWS was up to no good. I first saw this when the USFWS announced that it was removing the gray wolf from the Endangered Species Act list in the eastern third of the country. It wasn’t just coincidental that they did this and I brought it to people’s attention. I just wished they would pay attention.

I may be guilty at times of railing against the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. Their jobs can be difficult and with our future at stake, I feel compelled to keep the department on its toes. But when the Federal Government, is abusing science and manipulating species in order to gain control, it is flat out wrong and we all should be angry as hell. How can the MDIFW even think about implementing ways to protect the deer herd, Canada lynx, etc. when the USFWS declares eastern wolves a protected species in Maine?

Many years ago, the USFWS took up the torch for “nature balance” or “self-regulation” and along with it non-consumptive wildlife management. If this is the plan then I ask, what is the point of expending effort to protecting our hunting and fishing territory? Is anyone on our side anymore?
