Did I Hear That Right? Killing Minnesota deer not diseased

Please, please, someone tell me how this makes sense.

ONE deer has tested positive for Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD).  Seventeen have been ‘harvested’, so far.  Sharpshooters are baiting and shining, both illegal here the last I heard.

After about the sixth time this story was reported on the news, I just felt the need to ask for some clarification.

Sharpshooters bait and kill deer, to stop CWD

NEAR BRYON, Minn. (FOX 47) — There are renewed efforts to end Chronic Wasting Disease in our area. That’s after a deer in the Pine Island area tested positive for the disease in January.

The DNR’s Big Game Coordinator, said as of Thursday, 352 deer have been tested, all with negative results. In the span of two nights nine sharpshooters killed 17 deer. They’re baiting the deer with piles of corn at 25 different locations in the sample zone. An old hospice house near Oxbow Park, just north of Byron, is one of the baiting grounds. After the park closes, sharpshooters venture out with thermal imaging technology and high powered rifles with scopes.

While some people appreciate what the DNR is doing, not all hunters feel it’s right.
“They came with a new rule that it has got to be four-points on each side to shoot, or at least for a buck. That was supposed to make the deer hunting better here for bigger trophy deer, and now they’re going down not even in the season shooting them, “said Donny Ehlenfeldt, a hunter near Byron.
We’re told sharpshooters will be killing deer for the next 3 to 5 weeks. As for the 300-plus land owners with permits to shoot deer on their property, those permits expire at the end of this month.



Southern Poverty Law (Lie) Center: The shame of America

“I know of no one who thinks or believes that we can exist as a nation without a government.  What I do know is that we can no longer abide bad government, and one that has moved so far beyond its boundaries that it is now openly engaged in acts of aggression against its own people. “


Whatever the Southern Poverty Law (Lie) Center may have done in the past that would have merited respect has long since gone the way of most organizations that lose their way when they are suddenly treated as if they actually still retain any value.  This organization that makes its living reviving McCarthyism with all the paranoia and viciousness it can muster is a blight on America.  It is my belief that we need to compile our own list of threats to America, and SPLC would top that list. 

Until a few years back, I was a registered Democrat and had been all my adult life.  I left that party along with any other political affiliation due to the corruption in government at the hands of politicians who did and still do violate our Constitution and our rights while they wage phony wars for profit and who will sell us out to the highest corporate bidder.  It was individuals from both major party’s who initiated the wholesale destruction of our rights; it was and is presidents representing both major party’s who encouraged and condoned these things.  I take these assaults on the Constitution and my rights very seriously.  For me, this is very personal and I reserve my Constitutional right to dissent and to voice that dissent without a gaggle of otherwise unemployable and paranoid hacks creating lists of fictional threats. 

It is apparent that the only “research” done to compile their lists is on the net.  Anyone (like me) who points out the corruption of the government, who questions their authority to violate and abrogate our rights, who publicly expresses their disgust with the loss of our sovereignty due to illegal trade agreements (which are NOT treaty’s as prescribed by the constitution), the selling off of our infrastructure to foreign interests, anyone who realizes that Muslims can’t be the international threat the government claims they are or they wouldn’t continue to allow millions to emigrate to the US (would they?) that Homeland Security exists for no other reason than to protect the government from us. 

If we believe that our right to own property free of government encumbrance, to engage in lawful business activity free of laws protecting corporations  and most especially if we believe that with our economy in shambles and 22 million legal Americans unable to find work that our borders should be secured and illegal residents deported back to their homeland……well, we must all be “hate groups, nativists, ring-wing extremists,” and whatever other fear mongering tags they can come up with to identify those of us who object to the deconstructing of America. 

Well, I lean more to the left , don’t own a gun, don’t belong to any groups and have absolutely no idea why being a “nativist” meaning, a patrotic American citizen, is a bad thing unless of course you are a member of SPLC and then you are fearful and suspicious of anyone who isn’t you. More
