HUNTERS--you can all go to HELL!

I married into a family of hunters.  One of my earliest memories of my new father in law went like this;
He brought me into the living room to see his ducks, taixidermied, hanging on the wall. ( I was pregnant with his first grandson at the time, and determined that my child would NOT grow up and chose to kill Innocent animals.)
I looked sadly at the ducks, and turned and asked him--
"Why?"
His answer--"Because I love them."

I stood there a moment, and turned to him and said these exact words;
"Well, I love your son--but that does not mean I want to see him dead and hanging on my wall."

My father in law never again spoke of hunting to me. My son grew up respecting life.

Lately I have been seeing stories of "men" (I use the word loosely) who have killed gorgeous animals, deers with huge antlers.  I have to ask them this;

WHY kill them?  Does this make you more of a man?  I think any REAL man would respect the deer for the many years they had survived.   I think a REAL man would shoot them with a camera, not a gun or arrow.

The simple truth is, we no longer need to hunt to feed our families. Hunting is a SPORT.  Killing beautiful animals is a SPORT.  This makes me sick, and frankly, hunters make me sick. Even though my husband was raised with this mentality, he has not hunted since we married.  He sees the value, the beauty in life. He respects the animals and the years they have survived. He would rather see a 36 point buck walking majestically through our yard, than kill it. My husband is a real man, a man of values and integrity, a man who respects life and nature.

I hope the rest of you know and understand the Karma you have chosen for yourselves.

Questions for Half of the Country

OK, America--or at least, the half of America that drank the poisoned kool-ade fed to them by Trump.  I have questions for you.

If you are a woman--are you ready to be told that the government has a right to say what you can and can't do with your own body? Are you prepared for womens rights to be set back to the grand old days, when women died of coat hanger abortions? Because this will be YOUR fault.

What do you think will happen when this ignorant, arrogant person decides he is tired of playing president, and he wants to go golf or hop on his plane and take a nice, 3 month long vacation? Do you believe for one minute that he understands this is a 24/7/365 JOB that he MUST show up for?  This spoiled brat who has always done what he wanted, when he wanted?  

How is it that an election is "rigged" if he loses, but not if he wins? (Russian hacks, anyone?)

How does this POS have time to constantly be on Twitter?  He is like a teen, his phone is attached to his hand (and, apparently, his mouth.....)  Put the phone down and LEAD, jerk.  You are not 14 years old, so stop acting like it.

In the words of film icon Betty Davis-
Fasten your seatbelts, we are in for a bumpy (night) ride.
