Wild Hogs Coming to Your Back Door Soon

It seems that little is or can be done about stopping the spread of feral swine throughout this country. I think part of the problem is that people don’t realize there exists a problem or that it will, more than likely, wind up in your back yard eventually if not all ready. I also think there’s a certain disconnect between the people and wild hogs mainly because too many people probably don’t understand where all the pork they eat comes from……other than the grocery store.

With an estimated population in the U.S. of anywhere between 4 and 8 million hogs, the question isn’t if but when will wild hogs come to my house and destroy my lawn and garden, tear down my fencing and kill my pets? Kill my pets? It would only be fitting for environmental groups to work to put a stop to the needless killing of wild pigs. No, I’m not kidding.

Frank Bruni of the New York Times, pens a lighthearted approach to the realities of the swine life. But he does ask where the environmentalists are on this topic due to the ecosystem destruction caused by these millions of wild hogs. Bruni does mention that these pigs are, “throwing the earth out of balance.” Being that he writes for the New York Times and is only repeating the garbage he was taught in school and from all his other environmentalists friends at the Times, is it really worth trying to educate him about the “balance of nature?”

Texas A&M University answers probably any question you might have about feral hogs.

One of the last places some might think of to find wild pigs is in a cold climate like Maine. Well, officially New York State has too many pigs already and according to Maine’s Downeast Magazine, there’s about a population of 500 wild piggies in New Hampshire. The magazine warns Maine residents that those pigs might cross the border. And then what?

But, isn’t it too late to worry about if, they come? Maine’s Kennebec Journal had a story four months ago about a “Eurasian wild boar” that was shot by a person trying to stop the wild pig from killing his domestic pig.

This article states that officials are “mystified by the presence of a wild boar.” Really? Maybe officials should visit the Texas A&M University web page that explains about where feral hogs came from.

The first pigs were brought into what is now the continental U.S. into Florida in 1539 by Hernando de Soto. Explorers used these pigs as a traveling food source. After wandering around the southeastern United States in search of gold, his exploration party brought 700 pigs into what would become Texas in 1542.

Oh, so that’s how it happened. I mean seriously. Mystified?

Move For Background Checks to Buy Black Powder in a Police State

New Jersey Senator, Frank Lautenberg, is proposing a bill to require full background checks in order to purchase black powder, because…………?

Let’s face it. The logic and reasoning ability of some people is quite flawed. If this is the mindset among men, like Frank Lautenberg, then it is time to expand this list of items that should necessitate a full background check and those items which should be banned by government “for our protection.”

Both lists, using the same level of reasoning, should include but not limited to: Backpacks, baseball hats, sun glasses, nails, ball bearings, glass, pressure cookers, garage sales, boats (where terrorists hide), cars, convenience stores, public events inside and out, planes, shoes, etc. I mean seriously, where do we stop? And for what reason?

Police State

When you consider that people lined the streets after the capture of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the younger of two brothers, already condemned to death by the police and media for blowing up people during the Boston Marathon, to applaud their work, one has to wonder: How willing are people to roll over and play dead and hand any or all of their rights to the government? How many of those people applauding the work of the police understood what was taking place in those door to door searches for the suspect? Why did the FBI not keep Tamerlan Tsarnaev under surveillance as promised? The questions go on and on.

I do not think that I am alone when I thought or assumed that when it was announced that the police in Watertown, New York were going house to house “sweeping” the area, it DID NOT involve illegal search and seizure. If you watch the video below, supposedly a video taken of a police “search” of a house in Watertown during the manhunt for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, one has to really wonder who it is that we should fear. Are we at greater risk from a fleeing criminal and murderer or a dozen or more heavily armed law enforcement personnel treating you like a terrorist, evicting you from your home and I am assuming they police DID NOT have a search warrant to enter this home. One move by any one of these people would not have been a pretty sight.

One has to wonder if the police were so intent on getting into lawful citizens’ homes to see what they could find and flex their authoritarian muscle, that they simply missed finding the suspect who later was found holed up in a tarp-covered boat.

I think it is time that people woke up and began to understand that if they want to believe what the government and law enforcement is telling them, that this kind of terrorism is the “new normal”, then we should NOT be so eager to give up our arms, especially the assault weapons, and cast our rights to the ground, to appease the police, all in the trumped up cause of national security.

Listen carefully to what law enforcement and government is suggesting that we need to do “to make our communities safer.”

Day 46 – No Executive Orders

DIRTY DEALING!

Day 46 and still there are no executive orders, with President Obama’s detailed plans, for gun control. 46 days ago the president committed fraud, premeditated dirty dealing, to mislead this people.

sheepexecutiveorders

Here’s a very well done video of a gentleman explaining to any interested viewers the differences between a sport rifle (AR-15) and an assault rifle (M-4) by definition. The explanation and the demonstration are done very effectively but I am still left with the same question as I always am. Why do we continue to “compromise” our Second Amendment rights so that now we cannot easily obtain and own that assault rifle that we so matter of fact state has been banned in 1986? The cry is constant: Hunters don’t need assault rifles! Maybe true but limiting my ability to protect myself against criminals and bully tyrants like Fascist Feinstein, is criminal. Understand the differences in weapons but doing so should NOT be cause to limit my rights.

And speaking of limiting MY ability to protect myself and family, consider the Firearms Equality Movement, whose goal is for gun manufacturers to limit to law enforcement agencies the exact same limited weapons the governments have declared on citizens. In other words, if people cannot own an AR-15, then law enforcement can’t either. Interesting concept.

Here’s a list of other links concerning the debates and events occurring about destroying our Second Amendment:

1. National Journal I believe wrongfully asks if the big “movement” to ban guns has dried up and gone away. The basis for their claim is that the most effort and noise is being exerted by pro Second Amendment. Don’t let the left’s quietness lead you astray.

2. Glenn Reynolds, in an opinion piece found in USA Today, says that the NRA is more instep with American people than President Obama – which might not actually be saying much. Which reminds me. Readers should be very aware with whom they may decide to throw their support to in the fight to save the Second Amendment. Many organizations are just crisis pimps looking for or maybe even helping to create a crisis in order that they can play on your emotions to gain access to your bank account. Proceed with caution.

3. And speaking of organizations that like to beg for your money during a crisis, The Blaze tells of one such rally in New York to protest the fascist-style gun laws imposed upon the citizens there.

4. Finally, “Say-it-Ain’t-So” Joe Biden is out giving advice to women and gun owners on how to protect themselves without a so-called “assault” rifle. Smokin’ Joe says that if you want to keep somebody out of your house, use that double barrel shotgun and just shoot through the door.

So, with those endearing thoughts from our VEEP, I’ll leave you with this thought:

Legislation to Protect Concealed Carry Permit Holders

A Maine lawmaker has proposed legislation that would make it impossible for the public to obtain the personal information of those people holding a valid Maine concealed weapons permit. Some favor this and some don’t. As the article points out Maine is only one of fourteen states that still allows public access to this information. Such legislation is not new nor is there any new arguments for or against limiting the public to information of this kind.

This Maine legislation was prompted by the incident in New York where a news agency decided to publish the names and addresses of concealed weapons permit holders in two counties. The arguments for and against this ignorant and violence-baiting move were the same old tired ones. Permit holders declared the list would give crooks a list of where to go to steal guns and some of the non permit holders said it provided crooks a list of homes NOT to go rob because they did have guns and that, they said, made them more vulnerable because robbers would know that. What was NOT readily discussed was the intent of the people publishing the list.

So, why would anyone, coming on the heels of the Newtown, Ct. school shootings and following a few days of emotionally charged debate on the right to keep and bear arms, publish to the public, a list of names and addresses of people who hold a legal right to carry permit? Is it because they want to let criminals know where and where not to find concealed carry holders? Perhaps! Was it to alert crooks as to which houses may not have any guns, therefore making it easier to rob? Doubtful! Or was it a malicious act to provide a targeted address for anyone emotionally worked up over their hatred of guns and gun owners that they would know where to target someone who owned a gun? Absolutely! And that’s the crime that’s not being talked about here.

This is nothing new. Put on your thinking caps or climb aboard the Wayback Machine with Mr. Peabody and Sherman, to a time when this nation was having a great debate about Freedom of Information Access and what should and should not be included in information to be made available to the public and why. If you will recall many stated that there would be abuses and that there would be some who would use this private information for things other than just needing to know. Little did we know back then that news journalists would publish names and address of people they hoped would somehow at least be embarrassed and worse would become specific targets of deranged and hateful people that are no better than the drugged up person who supposedly murdered 26 people at Sandy Hook.

It is the actions of such selfish, non thinking, hateful, unethical, power abusive people that have caused states to formulate legislation in order to stop this. In my mind, there is no other legitimate reason for a person or persons to expose people in this fashion other than to cause them harm, possibly death.

I recall in New Jersey, people who care more about animals than humans, harassed hunters enough that legislation had to be adopted to prevent these mentally ill people from going into the woods and doing harm to the bear hunters.

In Idaho, a man who holds the distinct honor of legally shooting the first gray wolf, during a state sanctioned hunting season, had his name and that of many other licensed Idaho wolf hunters published in order that they would become targets of people wanting to do harm to them. The poor guy received more death threats for killing a wolf than if he had threatened to kill a human. Such sick behavior has prompted the Idaho Congress to pass a law making it illegal to publish this information.

So, you can choose to debate the ins and outs of why its right or wrong to publish personal information about licensed gun owners, but let’s not forget to include in that debate the fact that the real reason anybody would do that is to cause another person harm. And that is wrong and should be dealt with.

NY Assemblyman Says Committee Considered Gun Confiscation

New York State Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin, in the video below, references that in discussions about the recent number of gun restrictions voted on and approved by the Assembly and signed by Governor Cuomo, discussed the confiscation of guns. I have also been told that McLaughlin posted a list on his Facebook page, also shown below, of items discussed but not included in the ban. I have not been able to find that list.

Note however that in the video, the reason given for not providing all the items considered by the committee was because it would really tick off a lot of people.

1. Confiscation of “assault weapons”
2. Confiscation o ten round clips
3. Statewide database for ALL Guns
4. Continue to allow pistol permit holder’s information to be replaced to the public
5. Label semiautomatic shotguns with more than 5 rounds or pistol grips as “assault weapons”
6. Limit the number of rounds in a magazine to 5 and confiscation and forfeiture of banned magazines
7. Limit possession to no more than two (2) magazines
8. Limit purchase of guns to one gun per person per month
9. Require re-licensing of all pistol permit owners
10. Require renewal of all pistol permits every five years
11. State issued pistol permits
12. Micro-stamping of all guns in New York State
13. Require licensing of all gun ammo dealers
14. Mandatory locking of guns at home
15. Fee for licensing, registering weapons

New York Residents Want Something Done About Rat Infestation

And where are those same animal right zealots who work so hard to protect big rats, like coyotes, wolves, bear, mountain lions, etc. Is there a class warfare among animals?

Political Convention Finds Passed Out Participants on East River in New York

I’m guessing either there was some kind of political convention in New York City recently, resulting in at least one participant found passed out on the shore of the East River.

Or it’s some kind of unexplained “monster” that washed up on the shore.
