Re: “Kudos for King, a Facebook fracas, and more gun voices

I grew up with guns (rifles & shotguns) and hunting - accompanying father and his dogs duck hunting and rabit hunting at age 3 and deer hunting at 11. Father's hunting put food on our table in our poverty, and he cried with every success for the beautiful creature that gave it's life that we might live. As a teenage girl I lost interest in hunting. That interest returned 25 years later in the 90's when the economy started going south for many of us here in the USA and free range, organic meat at $2.00/pound became worth the time, work and stink of hunting and gutting - and the pain of watching the life leave those eyes that I might have some protein on my table. One young doe a year and maybe a turkey is plenty for two people in my opinion.

Hunting is far more about learning, tracking and patience than it is about shooting. Real Hunters have nothing but disdain for idiots with high power, high-tech weapons that know nothing about hunting, are a danger to themselves and other hunters, and have no respect for the hunted. It is the fools with War Weapons that are most likely to kill and leave the meat to rot. Most of the Real Hunters I know joke about shooting these fools and leaving them to rot - but are all too moral to actually follow through.

If you know how to hunt and meat is what you are after, one bullet does the job. And if you are not going to eat it - you should not shoot it.

I don't know any Real Hunters that use automatic or semi-automatic weapons. All the Real Hunters I know want those War Weapons out of the woods and fields.

Re: “Letters

mythology: a collection of myths. myth: a fictitious story

Yep. Well aware, thanx. Several ancient civilizations worshipped gods who died for the good of the community and then were resurrected. Women were also regularly impregnated by gods back in the day. I can hear it now - "But Dad, it was a God, I swear!" Creating humans from clay, Noah's Ark? See the mythology of Sumer.

Perhaps you are unaware of the Gaia Hypothesis, and perhaps you are and think the idea that all life on the planet is integrally connected is just another fairy tale.

Smartestman? I highly doubt it. The sibylla has spoken.
