What do you think of Sarah Palin's idea of killing wolves because they eat caribou and elk which are the usual game for hunters? And how she fought to keep Polar Bears OFF the endangered list?......Not trying to start any fights...just genuinely curious..

Okay. I am not a hunter. But I have nothing against someone who hunts for meat. I am the frequent recipient of venison from one of my attorneys, who owns 150 acres and he will split the meat with me, since he knows no one in my family is able to eat beef, thanks to allergies.

That said, in Palin's case, I support the right to arm bears. Hunters take down the largest and best of the herds. If they're hunting in Alaska, I'd bet most of them are after the trophy, rather than out of necessity. To the natives, it makes no difference. Natural preditors kill the weakest and slowest.

So, if you look at Darwinian theory [to which Palin doesn't subscribe], natural preditors are doing the hunters a favor by weeding out the weak and infirm.

Does anyone know what her stand is on capital punishment? I'm curious, because most 'right to life' people are all concerned until the baby gets here, then the kid in on his own until he's old enough to get shot at in some war, or commits a crime and gets a needle.

It's in their nature, so why kill them because of what comes naturally to them? It's wrong.

Oh, and the polar bear.....people are under the impression this is their planet and they are in for a rude awakening. The polar bear is endangered because of our greed. We need to fix what we broke.
