Gun Nuts and Sadists: It’s Time To Stand Up To the Bullies

Each day I become more and more disgusted with our society. From gun nuts threatening “civil war” to their brethren in the animal killing community who get more vile by the day, something is very wrong in this country. A fellow Wisconsin wildlife advocate received this image in their email with the following comment:

She was such a tough little thing, she ran over 100 yards with her guts hanging out. Maybe if she did not have those pups inside she would have made it. Have a nice day

Welcome to modern America. To a disturbingly high number of people in this country this is funny. Not to be outdone the rabid gun nuts are on a rampage making threats about “civil war” and pushing conspiracy theories about the Sandy Hook massacre being fake. Yup it was all dreamt up by our socialist president so that he could take away your frickin guns. The most insane theory that I heard was that all of the murdered children’s caskets were closed and “no one” saw the bodies. Really? What? Do you want the murdering POS that killed the children to have taken grinning photographs over the bloody bodies of the children like gun nuts do with the animals they slaughter? Do you want open caskets showing children with half of their faces missing? What is wrong with you nuts? The NRA and their shills keep saying that mental health needs to be addressed in this country. You bet it does, and they can start right in their own ranks. Sane people do not act this way or spread crazy accusations. Sane people do not threaten “civil war” if they cannot buy 20 of their little killing toys without a background check. Sane people do not send photographs of gut shot animals and joke about them being killed while pregnant. Isn’t it funny how “pro-life” matters only when talking about human life with these people? Or at least human life while it is still in the womb, because they sure don’t give a damn about you once past that stage.

Is this what “freedom” is all about? If so, I would gladly take some of that evil socialism because there are some truly sick individuals that walk among us and lurk in the shadows taking advantage of that “freedom.” Don’t get me wrong sick people live in every corner of this world, but there sure seems to be a high concentration in this country. Did the founding fathers really have the gun nut view of the world in mind when they wrote the bill of rights? I highly doubt it. And if they did it would be foolish to think that they had all of the answers in the first place. No man is infallible and remember that these same people proudly owned slaves. Do you want to live in a society where every nut who walks a razor’s edge mentally to have access to high powered military style weapons? Do you really think the founding fathers envisioned this for their WELL REGULATED MILITIA?

For the record I have no problem with guns being owned for home protection. In fact I own one for that very purpose. The difference between me and the gun nuts is that I don’t base my entire identity on a killing apparatus. I am also a veteran with extensive training on when to use and when not to use a weapon. Have you ever noticed that most of those who obsess about guns and starting a “civil war” are the ones who never served a day of their life in military service? Ted Nugent? He crapped his pants for a week straight to avoid being drafted to serve in Vietnam. The shills on Fox News? Name one talking head there who served in the military? I sure can’t. So if they were to afraid to fight in the wars they advocate for, why would anyone think they would have the guts to start another civil war? That is the point. Just like the scum that sent the above photograph. They talk a big game and sure know how to abuse creatures who can’t fight back, but in the end they are nothing more than cowards. Take away their killing apparatus and they are even less. It is all about fear and intimidation with these people. They get off on tormenting those who actually do care and threaten “civil war” when we don’t back down from their bluster. I for one say we don’t back down, not one inch. They can hide behind the anonymity of the internet and vile pages like the “Wisconsin Wolf Hunting” page on Facebook but we know exactly what they are in real life.

Is this what we want to continue to allow America? Gun nuts and sadists bullying the rest of us into submission? It’s your decision.

Direct Anger At DNR and Legislature, Not Judge Anderson

Wisconsin DNR: What century do we live in?

Wisconsin DNR: What century do we live in?

Since the mixed ruling of last Friday by Dane County Judge Peter Anderson on the lawsuit over the use of dogs against wolves there has been a rash of anger against the judge from wildlife advocates. While none of us are happy with the ruling it must be noted that the judge’s hands were essentially tied from the beginning due to the archaic and pandering laws that protect cruelty against wildlife in Wisconsin. When the lawsuit was first announced the leaders of groups like the deceptively named kill everything group the Wisconsin Wildlife Federation and extreme hunting group shills like Rep. Scott Suder (R-ALEC) came out and defended cruelty against wolves and other wildlife because of laws protecting the abusers.

Do not direct your anger at Judge Anderson. Direct your anger where it truly belongs, with the Legislature and DNR. The so called “leadership” in the DNR have been furiously defending the use of dogs against wolves from the beginning. This email from the Wisconsin DNR came out today:

We are pleased that Judge Anderson removed the injunction that banned the use of dogs for hunting wolves. However, we are disappointed with Judge Anderson’s decision to prohibit training of dogs to hunt wolves.

We will continue to seek input from the public and from stakeholders – including tribes – as we continue to develop permanent rules on the wolf season, and the use of dogs for both training and hunting of wolves.

FOR MORE INFORMATION CONTACT: Bill Cosh, DNR, (608) 267-2773; Dana Brueck, DOJ, (608) 266-1221

What kind of state is this? An agency that is supposed to represent the “will of the people” has essentially spit in the face of wildlife advocates, the courts, and even most of the hunters that they claim to represent by pandering to the minority within the minority bear hounders. How much backlash is it going to take before political hacks like Kathy Stepp actually listen to anyone other than the Wisconsin Bear Hunters Association,  George Meyer, and their paid lobbyists like Bob Welch? The vast majority of people in Wisconsin have made it very clear that they oppose the use of dogs against wolves and a smaller majority oppose the entire wolf killing program. But none of that matter when you have an agency and legislature that only cares what Bob Welch and George Meyer want and to hell with the rest of the citizens.

Now is the time to make our voices heard more than ever. Call the DNR and your legislators and let them know that the vast majority oppose the archaic practice of hounding and that it is shameful for our state to have the dubious distinction of being the ONLY one in the country to allow packs of vicious dogs to go after wolves. This and other forms of hounding are legalized animal fighting that are not only allowed but actively promoted by the state.

Find you legislators here:

Who Are My Legislators?

Contact the DNR here:
1-888-936-7463

Enough is enough. The DNR and legislature have a responsibility to ethically represent the will of the majority, not pander to a few extremist groups. We cannot let up the pressure on these two government bodies. Call and write each day if you have to to make your voice heard. Remember it is not Judge Anderson that you should be angry with. He did not create this disgusting bill.

Finally The News Media Is Reporting That Wisconsin Endorses Animal Cruelty

Coming soon to Wisconsin.

Coming soon to Wisconsin.

In today’s online edition of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel political writer James Rowen pointed out that the Wisconsin Legislature’s vote for allowing dogs in the wolf kill bill is an endorsement of animal cruelty.

Wisconsin legislators voted for animal cruelty through wolf-dog fights

I want to hear how this can be justified as anything other than legalized and state sponsored animal fighting. The same goes for the sadists who send their dogs after coyotes, bears, bobcats, turkeys, and any other animal. Good job Wisconsin you are finally showing your true colors to the rest of the country. The rest of the country no longer views Wisconsin as this quiet rural state that produces milk and cheese, or where idiots wear ridiculous looking hunks of plastic cheese on their heads in support of a football team. We now have the dubious distinction of being a right wing, wildlife hating utopia for sadists and thrill killers. I am sure this will do wonders for the tourism in this state.

Those who voted for and continue to support more and more extreme methods for killing our wildlife should be ashamed of themselves. I know that they are too arrogant to be, but they should. We have very few true Democrats left in this state. The majority of them voted for the wolf kill bill with little to no debate and rubber stamped the year round killing in state parks bill. It is time again to bombard your legislators with phone calls and emails to demand that at minimum the use of dogs be removed from this sadistic law. Here is a link to find your legislators:

Who Are My Legislators?

What the geniuses in the legislature apparently are too dense to realize is that provisions such as the legalized dog fighting may be all it takes to get the wolves relisted under the ESA. When anti-wolf rancher and Idaho legislator, Jeff Siddoway, proposed legislation early last year that allowed for live dogs to be used as bait to kill wolves even the anti-wolf federal representatives stepped in and warned that such a proposal would likely make wolves return to the ESA list. The proposal failed, but Wisconsin kept pushing and rubber stamping any method to kill wolves, even by using dogs. When will this endless pandering to the most extreme elements in our state end? More and more hunters are coming out against the hounders and their legislative enablers yet it continues to fall on deaf ears. Here is what is coming to Wisconsin this fall. This video is very disturbing but it must be seen:

Remember, Wisconsin apparently thinks this is perfectly acceptable and is considered “recreation” and “tradition.” I would assume that the above video comes from some sadists in Europe, but it could easily be northern Wisconsin. Please bombard your legislators with your opposition to this disgusting law and remind them who they are supposed to be working for, and tell your friends to do the same. Tell them that you want to see hounding put up for a statewide referendum and see how the citizens of this state really feel about it.
