Dare We Speak of “The Demons Within” our Fish and Game Departments?

Below is a copy of a letter written by a man who has, over the recent years, become a very outspoken activist for the Idaho hunting, fishing and trapping community. Part of his focus is on weeding out the corruption that exists on the Board of Commissioners as well as within the fish and game department itself. And now, it appears that Mr. Rockholm has taken another step in his desire to weed out those who not only refuse to carry out the mission of the fish and game department, but work behind the scenes if necessary, against the mission of the fish and game department.

In this instance in Idaho, Rockholm fingered one man specifically, who, it was discovered, had gone on Facebook and advocated for pro wolf supporters to “shoot, shovel and shut up” private livestock legally being grazed on public lands. For those who may not know, “shoot, shovel and shut up” is a term that was used in describing the actions supposedly taken by some in dealing with federally protected gray wolves. The words speak for themselves.

Rhetoric is cheap and we all practice it to some degree. I have made comments in the past and I have read them and heard them from others, that our fish and game departments have been taken over by environmentalists and animal rights advocates, many of whom are supporters of predator protection and non consumptive wildlife management.

In this Idaho case, after the employee was offered early retirement because of his actions, he made it known on further Facebook postings that he no longer had to work quietly while on his job as a pro wolf, environmentalist activists and was ready to become openly active while at the same time fingering a fellow fish and game employee as being in the same predicament. Nice guy!

Even though Mr. Rockholm was told by the director of the fish and game department that the person in question was fired, he wasn’t. He was just offered an early retirement package. Which brings us to another point in the discussion about getting rid of fish and game employees who don’t work to fulfill the mission of the departments they work for. Easier said than done.

We mustn’t lose sight of the fact that these people are government employees and as such it makes it next to impossible to get rid of them, even if they are not doing their job – frustrating but true.

Many sportsmen advocate that fish and game work should be based on science and not on politics. While it should be, how do you suggest keeping politics out of it when more than likely the appointment to the head of the fish and game department is a political one?

As just another political department, it should be fish and game carries out the program guidelines set up between the governor and his selection to run the department. It then becomes the responsibility of the head of the fish and game, to bring his employees in line with the mission. If there are no alternatives for fish and game leaders to deal with non complying employees, then that is the fault of the state’s governmental structure and needs changing. And good luck with that.

This political crap runs in both directions through both parties and as such the employees need to be able to adapt accordingly. If they refuse to do their job or are found to be working against the mission of the department, proper disciplinary action should be allowed, not an easy out with early retirement.

There’s always been a difficult line as to what a government employee can and cannot do on their own time. I think it shouldn’t matter, so long as it is within the law. I’m not sure encouraging people in the destruction of other people’s lawful property isn’t taking things a bit too far.

No employee should be protected from being fired from their job for good reason.

And now, Scott Rockholm’s letter:

Idaho Fish No Game
&
The demons within

September 2012 was an enlightening month for those of us who keep an eye on Idaho Fish No Game. On 19 Sept 2012, I received notice of a IDFNG Senior Fisheries Tech prowling the internet, professing that the wolf loving / anti ranching activist’s should start killing cattle on public land grazing allotments. See screen shot of Ric Davidson’s comment.

After I was notified of this outrageous comment, I immediately called Director Moore. I also called the Fisheries Chief, Ed Schriever, and we had a brief discussion of the important nature of a Idaho Fish No Game employee advocating shooting private ranchers cattle, lawfully grazing their property on permitted allotments. Mr. Shriever and Mr. Moore assured me that the issue would be handled in a professional manner. I was called later that afternoon by Mr. Moore, who advised me that Ric Davidson was fired, or as he put it, “Mr. Davidson , as of this very moment, not a IDFNG employee any longer”. I thanked Virgil, and the conversation ended. Problem solved, and one more anti hunting/ anti ranching employee of the department was vetted. I assumed the problem was handled, but it appears no punishment was delivered at all. He was given an option to retire, and now he will collect even more of sportsmen’s dollars through retirement. This is absolutely unacceptable.

Within days of Ric Davidson’s firing, he was already on the world wide web, proclaiming his “Retirement” from the Department. This hate filled man, who had been sucking off of hunters hard earned dollars, is now revealing himself even more. He is now working with, or maybe had been working with all along, the Friends of the Clearwater. This organization couldn’t get more radical, and is charged with the same hate filled rhetoric that Ric Davidson has. Below is a screen shot, where he implicates himself working with this organization, while working for the Idaho Fish No Game, and he also implicates his supervisor, Sean Wilson. Look for yourself.

What we have here is an example of corruption from within. Many of our department employees are agenda driven people who hide behind the IDFNG logo. They drive department vehicles, and collect very good wages for enjoying a great job, in one of the nations treasures. These employees must be vetted, and removed from the payroll for good. A forensic audit of the department is in order, and the only means by which we can weed out the anti department bad apples. I ask the Idaho Legislature to consider a thorough and extensive audit of the Idaho Fish No Game, and the audit must be a independent forensic review that spans many years. There is no reason to have employees working for a department, with the goal of destroying it from within.

Ted Nugent Endorses Mitt Romney

*Editor’s Note* The posting of this information is not an indication that I or anyone associated with the web site endorses the candidate Mitt Romney. This is being made available for the readers as information.

After much soul searching and due diligent research, I endorse Governor Mitt Romney to be the GOP nominee for president because I believe he is the best man to chart a course for renewed America prosperity.

I respect, admire and applaud all four candidates, but endorse Mitt.

Good government always begins with good people. Governor Romney is a good man, a self-made man, an independent man, a smart man. My kind of guy, a real all-American MotorCity Madman sans ponytail.

We live in brutal economic times. Tough times require tough people willing to make even tougher decisions. I only support tough, creative, smart and bold people, and Governor Romney is just the man America needs right now for these turbulent times and the even tougher times in front of us.

Too many Americans are unemployed and under-employed. Putting America back to work and restoring America’s economy is job #1. Governor Romney has the hands-on private sector experience that is critical to understanding how to ignite our economy and put Americans back to work. President Obama has no private sector experience and we have a stagnant, sinking economy to prove it.

Governor Romney knows that one of the key economic anchors drowning our economy is that we have too much government that consumes too much of our GDP. He knows the path to prosperity is not lined with more government, more bureaucracy, more borrowing and spending, more mountains of unsustainable debt, and more fiscal insanity such as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac who amazingly are still making bad loans.

He understands the way forward is not more of the same disastrous policies and tremendously expensive programs that have pushed America to the brink of economic collapse. Under a Romney presidency, America will chart a much different course that begins with much less spending, lower taxes, and more accountability.

Governor Romney understands how the voluminous stacks of burdensome federal government regulations are suffocating the free market. Bureaucratic, anti-job regulations will become immediately extinct when Governor Romney becomes President Romney. The days of irresponsible, costly, unaccountable government will soon be a thing of the past.

Restoring basic fiscal sanity in a system that is addicted to irresponsible spending begins with banning earmarks across the board. President Romney will work to get the president line-item veto power and work to get a Balanced Budget Amendment.

Businesses will once again feel secure in investing and expanding their operations with a pro-business Romney Administration. If you want a job and a brighter future, Governor Romney is clearly the best choice to occupy the White House.

While becoming energy independent is difficult and will take time, President Romney will begin this journey by implementing a pragmatic energy policy that includes nuclear power, a Keystone pipeline, more off-shore drilling, and other real energy innovation and research and development.

As a tried and true conservationist, I know a President Romney will place the interests of the hunting and fishing community first and foremost over the current animal right’s terrorists infesting our government agencies. There will be zero pandering or tolerance of radical, leftist, clown-brigade environmentalists in a Romney White House.

Governor Romney is strong on national defense. Though a peaceful man, he knows that lasting peace is ultimately achieved through a position of strength. There will be no time tables to withdraw our warriors from the battlefield, only timetables for victory which will be established by our warriors.

There will be no apologizing for America to the international community by a President Romney, only praise for our freedom, our warriors, our culture, and our values. America will once again be respected on the international stage with President Romney at the helm.

During my heart to heart talk with the good Governor, I am convinced he better understands the inescapable truism of a God given individual right to keep and bear arms. No re-interpretation necessary.

There are stark and clear differences between Governor Romney and President Obama. This is good. Governor Romney believes the engine of America is the free market while President Obama believes in punishing the producers of the free market and growing an even larger federal government and legions of soulless dependents.

Governor Romney is clearly the best man for the job at hand. To restate President Reagan’s campaign theme of 1984, it will once again be morning in America with Mitt Romney in the White House.

Let’s rock, America.

Disengaged Sportsmen Take a Lesson

When’s the last time you readers, the outdoor sportsmen of this nation, clearly outnumbered all others at a public meeting, a town hall kind of meeting?

In a small town in Northern Utah, a public meeting was held with Governor Gary Herbert to discuss taxes, energy, education, immigration, etc. In attendance were approximately 400 people (see photograph). The report I received from Sportsmen for Fish and Wildlife about this meeting said that 360 of those in attendance were hunters who wanted to know of the governor what he plans to do to help them rebuild their depleted deer herd.

That’s what I mean when I say that hunters need to get up out of their seats and get involved in regaining our voice and making the demands to get back what we’ve invested in. Attending a meeting is one way. Joining a hunting club is another.

Is Wind Energy About Clean, Alternative Energy or Greasing Palms and Crooked Politicking?

Hat tip to Richard Paradis for providing the information for this article.

Maine is like many states that have been bombarded with the construction of intrusive, environment-destructive wind turbines, all hiding behind the image of providing alternative energy, lowering energy costs and saving the planet. Those who have had the nasty turbines planted in their back yards are finding out that all the promises made about how quiet and unobtrusive they are were false. In addition, while the entire efforts were billed as a cost effective alternative to carbon polluting oil and coal, over time we are finding out that much of the goings on behind providing funds to promote more wind energy, is nothing more than political paybacks by the Obama Administration from the 2008 campaign. With a new election coming this year, what kind of palm greasing can we expect?

From the book, “Throw Them All Out”, by Peter Schweizer, on page 94 we discover that Obama gave $115 million in taxpayer money to a wind energy company First Wind. People of Maine, Utah and New York in particular are familiar with First Wind.

The chart below shows a listing of people who were large contributors and/or bundlers to the Obama presidential campaign in 2008. For Maine residents, take notice that former Gov. Angus King and now owner of Record Hill Wind, received $102 million in taxpayer money to build his wind farms.

The center column shows the energy companies, i.e. wind energy, these donors own. In the right hand column is the amount of tax dollars kicked back to these donors by the Obama Administration after the election. So it’s all about clean energy is it?

I would put into action exactly what the title of the referenced book says: Throw Them All Out!

SOPA/PIPA Misunderstood by Those Who Misunderstand the Misunderstood

SOPA and PIPA are acronyms for U.S. House and Senate bills designed to censor the Internet and in particular a focus on putting out of business political pundits and anyone who associates with or perhaps even “links” to those websites.

In Politico yesterday, Tim Mak quotes Erick Erickson of Red State:

“Congress has proven it does not understand the Internet. Perhaps they will understand brute strength against them at the ballot box. If members of Congress do not pull their name from co-sponsorship of SOPA, the left and right should pledge to defeat each and every one of them.”

While I can share in the sentiments that “brute strength” at the ballot box might oust certain supporters in Congress of SOPA/PIPA, I have to disagree with Erickson’s assessment that “Congress has proven it does not understand the Internet”. On the contrary! I believe Congress completely understands the Internet and thus this is the real reason for SOPA/PIPA and all other Internet limiting/censoring bills that have been proposed over the years.

Government works everyday to limit our freedoms and destroy our rights. A free and uncontrolled-by-government Internet is a direct threat to Congress and the White House.

Congress completely understands that the freedom to exercise one’s first amendment rights via the Internet does not bode well for them. They fear truth and work hard to suppress it. Truth always wins out in the end so why should Congress fear the Internet?

We shouldn’t buy into some claim that Congress is ignorant of the Internet. They simply want to usurp that power and freedom away from their subjects as well. Ultimately it’s all about control. Freedom is the antithesis of control.
