The lead story in this morning’s St. Paul paper is: “Suicides up sharply in Minnesota”. It goes on, “The suicide rate for white middle-aged men… is soaring” and “Minnesota’s rates mirror national suicide rates” and “The male suicide rate in Minnesota was four times higher than the female rate.” The article offers no explanation of the decade-long growth of “white middle-aged men” committing suicide while going to great lengths to present government “hotlines” and “prevention programs” as our best hope.

Allow me to make two observations:

1. Were I to observe that “middle-aged white men” were increasingly committing suicide in some measure because in these hard economic times times they cannot find employment or even opportunity for scarce employment because of government discrimination due to government race classifications and government preferences for jobs, advancement, contracts, grants, housing, assistance, etc.: I would be labeled a “Racist.” It would be stated and assumed that I was only for “Stand your ground” laws because I wanted to kill young black men. It would be stated and assumed that I was only for voter identification because I wanted to keep minorities from voting. It would be stated and assumed that I wanted to “turn back the clock” to Jim Crow laws or even further back to slavery. No one would listen or even dare to listen to me on the matter of race and government. I might be assaulted or at least marginalized socially for my unacceptable and politically-incorrect views and statements.

2. Were I to observe that “middle-aged white men” were increasingly committing suicide in some measure because in these hard economic times they cannot find employment or even opportunity for scarce employment because of government discrimination due to government sex classifications and government sex preferences for jobs, advancement, contracts, grants, housing, assistance, etc.: I would be labeled a “Sexist.” It would be stated and assumed that I “hated” women outside the kitchen. While women have over the last two decades far surpassed the male graduation rates from high school and college, and now occupy more and more jobs from top to bottom (a few of which one might suppose could have been filled by current “white middle-aged men”?) the need for “more” and everlasting government sex preferences and “training” of boys and men would not be mentioned. As women are now in all military units and as discipline and therefore effectiveness declines from soaring sexual issues involving female and male (now including same-sex) military members and is kept hidden, what began as fairness has become a “right” and is to be forced on the American public

however and to whatever degree can be obtained. Discussion or “dialogue” about any of this remains unmentionable and anyone seeking a candid conversation is immediately “deleted into the trash bin” and ignored.

How like wolves, grizzly bears and all the other (spotted owls, red-cockaded woodpeckers, Kirtland’s Warblers, Delta Smelt, Florida bears and panthers, snail darters, etc.) endangered species that have enabled the growth of central government power, the growth of powerful and uncontrolled federal agencies and increasingly unlimited preferences for urban and radical environmental organizations priorities over the rights and freedoms of rural Americans is all this to Racism and Sexism. Like Race and Sex Preferences and Programs, Endangered Species and other such federal laws have distorted our Constitution and driven us apart into camps that are “gridlocked” and that are steadily taking us closer to catastrophe.

Lately I have been writing and speaking about wolves: about their federally-forced introduction and spread; about their threats to the safety and welfare of rural Americans; about their role in spreading multiple diseases, infections, tapeworms, etc.; about their destructive effects on livestock, wildlife and hunting; and their hidden, yet intended, consequences on State Authorities and Responsibilities resulting in all but unlimited federal authority over how and where rural Americans may live and conduct their daily affairs. As a result, I am a Wolfist. Don’t you know, I “hate” wolves.

When I read recently about the Minnesota teenager attacked by a wolf that grabbed him by the head as he dozed in a campground at night, I was disturbed to read that the DNR and the newspaper reported that “this incident was a ‘freak deal’ and ‘incredibly abnormal behavior’ and that ‘it’s the first one I’m aware of where there was actual physical damage to the victim’.” Really?

1. As one of many such examples, in 1996, Z. Deventhal an American Boy Scout about 13 years old was camping in the Algonquin Provincial Park, Ontario, Canada. Zach was sleeping outside a tent while on a canoe trip with his parents when a wolf grabbed his head and face and tried to pull him out of his sleeping bag. His parents drove the wolf off. Zach was badly hurt, 80 stitches. Kathy Cook, Reader’s Digest, “Night of The Wolf,” July 1997, pp. 114-119.

2. After the Minnesota attack, the DNR and newspapers reported that a wolf they “thought” was the attacker had been killed. It was said to have a “deformed jaw” that probably “caused” him to do what has “Never” been reported before in Minnesota, i.e. attack a Minnesotan or visitor. Evidently, wolves are or have never born with or experience any debilitation in Minnesota since this has “Never” happened before. Come to think of it, evidently Minnesota wolves must have “Never” contracted rabies as elsewhere that would have caused them to attack persons and anything else that walks, crawl or flies in this state where, according to Garrison Keilor, “all the children are above normal” as well. Aren’t Minnesota dogs required to get rabies shots? Besides, if the old excuse by Geraldine (AKA Flip Wilson) that the “Devil made me do it” is a worthy defense in today’s courts, why isn’t “my deformed jaw made me do it” valid for a wolf that nearly killed this young man?

3. Wolves kill lots of people each year from Eastern Europe to India and the NE coast of Siberia. Wolves have killed (and fed on) at least 2 North Americans in the past decade and more have been injured. Wolves are literally and currently flooding the Lower 48 States that are currently wolf-food rich States with non-human food such as (now dwindling) large game herds, large herds and flocks of livestock that make the US an abundant source of affordable protein, dogs (wolves kill and eat dogs) everywhere, and a public being disarmed by the very government that introduces and protects the wolves while accepting no responsibility for their extensive harms and destruction. Human safety from attacks and from the 30-50 deadly diseases, infections, and other ailments and vectors spread by federal government wolves are causing an unacknowledged (like Racist and Sexist federal government programs) sea change in rural American life as I write this. Saying wolves do not belong in such settled landscapes as The Lower 48 states or that the presence or densities of wolves should be primarily determined by Local elected officials is acknowledged like whistling in the wind is by those around you.

Whether wolves attack and kill humans because of a “deformed jaw” or old age or some other deformity or some infectious parasite or because the victim “ran” or because it (or they) were hungry or because kids are perceived like “kid on a stick” and elderly folks are perceived as easy pickings by wolves or because it was “fun” to chase a bicycle or because the wolf was “wounded” or simply because wolves are mean, nasty, dangerous and destructive animals as a matter of course: wolves do these things 24/7, hot or cold weather, alone or in packs: all the lying, ignorance, disinformation, propagandizing, laws, bureaucrats, studies, and pronouncements by “experts” notwithstanding.

But no one listens. Like serious conversations about federal race or sex programs, discussion of wolf programs by federal force is as prevalent as global warming validity discussions at an Al Gore dinner party: that is to say you are either “for” or “against”, period!

Reading the comments about wolves on blogs or in places like Field & Stream is both scary and disturbing. Putting it as bluntly as possible, those “for” wolves largely express hatred for “people”, American society, farms, dog “ownership”, rural residences, ranches, guns, hunting, livestock, private property, US history and any Local government authority. An attempt to summarize them might be that wolves are leading the way in the US today for a world wherein the human population will be reduced (wolves being only one of many means) and animal equality to and in some cases (temporary of course like federal race and sex programs) superior to human life and human rights. While they sneer at the comments of those “against” wolves (mostly the ones living with them), the appeals of those living with wolves are mostly vain attempts (laughed at by those “for” wolves) to explain the “truth about wolves” to people who will not listen. The resulting political “gridlock” simply increases and the “camps” merely do what they can to grow their membership to forcibly overwhelm their perceived opponents any way possible and to keep them suppressed just like race and sex program advocates do.

So, as a wolfist interested in the primacy of human life and the preservation of Constitutional US governance, I can only continue to do what I can with the experience and abilities I have been given. Whether confrontation or dialogue presents itself, I will carry on and I invite you to do the same.

Remain aware of the larger picture and do not underestimate the determination and disregard for what you hold dear in those arrayed against you and yours. Do whatever you do best and help those you meet along the way.

The unbelievable possibility of the US devolving into Balkan-like Countries (Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia, Albania, Macedonia, Montenegro, and Kosovo) composed of Bulgarians, Serbs, Croats, Bosniaks, Romanians, and Gypsies practicing Orthodox Christianity, Catholicism, and Sunni Islam; all of whom have never for centuries been able to accommodate each other unless a strongman like Tito or a Moslem conqueror ruled as dictator or they simply had open warfare and went their separate ways: becomes more real under these current divisions set and encouraged by a continuingly feckless US government. Urban/rural, white/minority, all-powerful central government/Constitutional government, single people/married people, business owners/workers, meat eaters/vegans, animal owners/animal lovers, Red/Blue are but a few of the deepening divisions driving us apart. Consider the periodic flare-ups in our Northern neighbor between Quebec and Canada that expose real possibilities about dividing Canada into parts that do not have the animosities we see swirling in the US today. The danger is very real.

Americans are becoming more and more like those hatred-filled, ethnically and religiously divided generations living in the Balkans. Our increasingly irresolvable problems of our own making will consume us if we cannot resolve the currently irresolvable. The choice is steaming toward either a strongman like Stalin or Putin forcing us back together, or devolving into smaller independent units. When looked at like this, restoring what we once had is the best alternative to pursue so we must not fear labels meant only to silence us. God bless the USA.
