    @ Moe Katz: Enviro-wacko-progressives want to commit a holocaust on all the innocent kitties.

    The anti-human faction of humanity (the progressives, Islamists, …) also want to destroy the pets. Serial killers and mass-murderers often start out by torturing and slaughtering the neighborhood pets.

    @ Moe Katz:

    Yeah but they are so cute when they are killing stuff.

    Really.

    At any rate I got a soft comfortable mainly indoor cat who pretty much is the main occupant of the house I make the payments for and occasionally sleep in and serve her.

    The only thing she kills are mice, rats, bugs, and cans of cat food. There is a big bullfrog that does not seem to have any toxic effect and is so big and slimy that all she can do is hold it in her mouth and wait at the door for me to let her in (never gonna happen). She has a bad hip and cannot jump or climb the fence or walls.

    She is probably going to be the last one just because by the time she passes away I’ll be getting up there in age — we are about the same biolgical age (she’s 10~11 years old). But I would never contemplate doing away with her because of some environmentalist. We’ve been through too much.

    What the hell is it about liberals wanting to kill everything anyway?

    Looks like they’re trying to kill off the economy, too.

    Obama Pushing Same Type Of Mortgages That Previously Contributed to Crisis

    Despite new evidence the Community Reinvestment Act led to riskier lending and played a key role in the subprime mortgage crisis, the Obama administration is broadening the anti-redlining regulation’s authority and scope, spooking bankers.

    A recent study by the National Bureau of Economic Research, the nation’s pre-eminent economic research group, states that the CRA “clearly” had a major impact on the flood of subprime loans made in the late 1990s and 2000s, which directly led to the housing crisis.

    there are plenty of accounts of cats traveling up to a few hundred miles to get back to where they are loved, same as dogs…nobody knows how pets do that…but I do know that some fat, declawed, lap cat is not for me…I have at least two, feral cats hanging out around my bunkhouse…awesome animals…they can be very friendly with me, but then wander away unimpressed and I won’t see them for days

    That’s a pretty big Bobcat compared to the ones I’ve seen in the wild. Must be the better food a domesticated one might get.

    I once saw an American Lynx in the wild, and posted about it at 1.0. But I was poo-pooed because of the location of where I saw it. Too far south they said. However I wasn’t the only one who saw it cross the path we were on maybe 20 yards away. It was unmistakeable what we saw.

    The pigs in central and east Texas are just indigenous strays. I got a couple down in south Texas near Brackettville. They had the broad flat snouts like a European boar. Cooked up real nice.

    A regular dog and cat practice wouldn’t, but a large animal vet might. They’re more used to dealing with dangerous animals. I went to HS with someone who has a practice like that. He mostly deals with cattle and horses and stuff, but sometimes he helps out at the zoo.

    I’ve spent a good part of my life camping, backpacking in the wilderness and mountain biking. I’ve seen almost everything there is to see and have pics of most of them. And I have pics of Bobcat in the wild. Unfortunately for the Lynx sighting we had no camera that day as we were mountain biking out in the boonies on a hiking trail. We were traversing a steep incline and the Lynx crossed into the trail(we were stopped for some reason, water intake maybe) stopped looked at us and slowly walked away and then down the lower side of the incline.

    The best thing I ever saw were Condors. Talk about a huge bird.

    In the first year I moved here I saw a Bald Eagle. I was biking along the Rio Grande just south of Montano and there it was scoping for a fish.

    Gun Owners In New York Planning To Defy New Registration Requirement: “Come and Take it!”

    After Democrats in New York rammed a sweeping assault on the right to keep and bear arms through the legislature that failed to exempt police officers from the draconian restrictions, gun owners and even some lawmakers are planning what has been dubbed potentially the largest act of civil disobedience in state history. According to news reports, gun rights activists are urging everyone to defy far-left Governor Andrew Cuomo’s new registration mandate while daring authorities to “come and take it.”

    Preparations are already being made for mass resistance. “I’ve heard from hundreds of people that they’re prepared to defy the law, and that number will be magnified by the thousands, by the tens of thousands, when the registration deadline comes,’’ said President Brian Olesen with American Shooters Supply, among the biggest gun dealers in the state, in an interview with the New York Post.

    You wouldn’t want to eat a javelina, but those are down in south Texas. Nasty critters. The feral hogs smoke up real nice, though. A little gamy because they’re not corn fed like what you get at Safeway. The ones I got were great. Caught ‘em in big pens and popped ‘em with a .45. Man, they were pissed off. About 250 lbs apiece.

    They tried it here in Tucson a few weeks ago. Sponsored by the one formerly Republican city council members. He pretty much showed his true colors when he excoriated the Republicans for daring to run someone to fill Gabby Giffords seat and then went to work for the democrat candidate. Anyway, he sponsored this buy-back program for anybody who had a gun in the house that was scared of it and wanted to get rid of it. He was offering $50 Safeway gift certificates. Tucson police would be on hand to check serial numbers to see if related to a crime. BTW, Safeway donated at least some of those gift certificates; Mrs. Federalist and I will not darken the doors of Safeway again. One of the local conservatives set up a table down the way from the buy-back dude and offered to buy any guns worth more than $50. He had FFL person on hand to make the transactions. One older woman brought a gun in and when she saw Antenori’s table, a bidding war started and she wound up getting over $200. She was overwhelmed, the only reason she had brought the gun in was that she really needed the money for food.

    Buy back organizer was appalled that the conservatives were doing this; he called it making a mockery of his attempt to get those guns off the streets. Yeah, in that respect, he was pretty perceptive.

    Yep. The more you’re out there the more likely to see stuff. One more story. We were hiking and up on this slope we heard rock cascading down. We looked up and then we spotted them on a precarious slope. A big horn ram with a harem of ewes. Once the ram knew we spotted them he chased the guilty ewe across the face of this steep grade. It was an amazing thing to see.

    I watched a lone, nearly white, big horn ram cross a snow covered mountainside across from the one I was perched on through a Leupold scope for about an hour outside of Gardiner, MT (Gallatin National Forest) on an elk hunt in which the elk weren’t cooperating.

    Biden: 1994 Assault Weapons Ban “Worked Too Well”…

    Vice President Joe Biden, who headed the gun violence task force following the school shooting massacre in Newtown, Conn., last month, and who proposed an assault weapons ban to President Obama earlier this month, said the original 1994 assault weapons ban “worked too well.”
    “In a sense,” Biden added, “the crime bill worked too well because what happened was violent crime diminished significantly.”

    “And as a consequence of that, those folks who represent a minority of people, who were much more energized from their perspective, were able to come in and undo a lot of what had been positively done,” he said.

    Biden’s came during his participation in a “Google Hangout” last Thursday — an online video chat room which allows presenters and audience to interact. he appeared alongside management expert Guy Kawasaki and several other bloggers.

    Crime has been declining since the ’80s, primarily due to the fact that we’ve locked up a significant percentage of the criminals.

    Really.
    At any rate I got a soft comfortable mainly indoor cat who pretty much is the main occupant of the house I make the payments for and occasionally sleep in and serve her.
    The only thing she kills are mice, rats, bugs, and cans of cat food. There is a big bullfrog that does not seem to have any toxic effect and is so big and slimy that all she can do is hold it in her mouth and wait at the door for me to let her in (never gonna happen). She has a bad hip and cannot jump or climb the fence or walls.
    She is probably going to be the last one just because by the time she passes away I’ll be getting up there in age — we are about the same biolgical age (she’s 10~11 years old). But I would never contemplate doing away with her because of some environmentalist. We’ve been through too much.
    What the hell is it about liberals wanting to kill everything anyway?

    I’m happy that La Gata is so good at killing nasty bugs. I really hate bugs.

    Iran Unveils New Machine For Amputating Fingers Of Thieves…

    One of Iran’s official press agencies published photos showing the public amputation of a thief’s fingers on Wednesday. These show a man getting his finger chopped off with a machine resembling a rotary saw.

    We contacted many of our Observers in Iran to ask them about this machine. Some of them had heard about it before, but many discovered its existence through these morbid photographs, which were reportedly taken on Thursday. According to the INSA press agency, the man shown getting his finger cut off was charged with robbery and adultery by a court in the southwestern city of Shiraz. He was also accused of being at the head of a criminal organisation. On top of losing one of his fingers, he was sentenced to three years in prison and 99 whip lashes.

    Those guys in the choppers probably have plenty of them in their freezers. However, those chopper hunts are on big farms and ranches far off the beaten track. They may kill scores or even hundreds of them in a day. Like Josey Wales said, “the worms and the buzzards gotta eat”.

    A priest and a rabbi are sitting next to each other on an airplane. After a while the priest turns to the rabbi and asks, “Is it still a requirement of your faith that you not eat pork?”

    The rabbi responds, “Yes, that is still one of our beliefs.”

    The priest then asks, “Have you ever eaten pork?”

    To which the rabbi replies, “Yes, on one occasion I did succumb To temptation and tasted a ham sandwich.”

    The priest nodded in understanding and went on with his reading. A while later, the rabbi spoke up and asked the priest, “Father, is it still a requirement of your church that you remain celibate?”

    The priest replied, “Yes, that is still very much a part of our faith.”

    The rabbi then asked him, “Father, have you ever fallen to the temptations of the flesh?”

    The priest replied, “Yes, rabbi, on one occasion I was weak and broke with my faith.”

    Gun Killings Continue In Strict Gun Control Chicago

    Authorities are investigating the shooting deaths of five people in a single day of bloodshed in Chicago.

    Police Officer Daniel O’Brien says Saturday’s first killing occurred at around 2:15 a.m. on the city’s west side when a gunman opened fire on two men who were sitting in a parked car, killing one and wounding the other.

    Investigators say a few hours later, someone opened fire on three men near a South Side eatery, killing two of them and wounding the third.

    Detectives were called to the scene of another shooting Saturday afternoon in which a man in his 30s and a teenager were shot to death. There had been no arrests.

    Chicago’s homicide count eclipsed 500 last year for the first time since 2008.

    Obama: ‘Up At Camp David We Do Skeet Shooting All The Time”

    In an interview with the New Republic, President Barack Obama is asked whether he’s “ever fired a gun.”

    “Yes,” Obama says, “in fact, up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting all the time.”

    Obama says his family doesn’t go shooting, in respons to a question. “Not the girls, but oftentimes guests of mine go up there. And I have a profound respect for the traditions of hunting that trace back in this country for generations. And I think those who dismiss that out of hand make a big mistake.”

    Here we go again with the hunting or target shooting nonsense, which is not the purpose of the Second Amendment.

    Then Obama tries to tie in gun control talk, which was the subject of much of the interview. “Part of being able to move this forward is understanding the reality of guns in urban areas are very different from the realities of guns in rural areas. And if you grew up and your dad gave you a hunting rifle when you were ten, and you went out and spent the day with him and your uncles, and that became part of your family’s traditions, you can see why you’d be pretty protective of that,” says Obama.

    “The reality of guns in urban areas”? Guns are guns. The difference is the people in urban areas.

    Offensive lib comment of the day:

    Feinstein: NRA Motivated By Bribery…

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) on Sunday called the Newtown school shooting an “epiphany” and the National Rifle Association “venal” [motivated by susceptibility to bribery -ed.] in explaining the motivation behind the assault weapon ban she’s introduced in the Senate.

    “This is the hardest of the hard,” Feinstein said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “You reach a point where enough is enough.”

    The chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee said the NRA’S influence on Capitol Hill should not hold Congress back in passing the bill.

    “I can see the NRA is venal. The NRA has become an institution of gun manufacturers” she said.

    Feinstein also said the NRAs’ proposal to put armed guards in schools will not solve the problem.

    For a Dem Senator to imply that someone else is motivated by bribery is probably the height of hypocrisy.

    No .22LR, no 9mm, .38SPL, .357Mag, .40 S&W or .45ACP.

    The only rifle caliber they had in quantity, other than the boutique hunting calibers like .270, .300WSM, etc. was some 7.62x39 and 7.62x54 in their “Herter’s” brand.

    Throughout history, the LACK of babies has been considered to be a punishment. Many infertile couples today feel the same way.

    The Bible is full of couples pleading to the Lord that they conceive a child, or that their ailing or deceased child be restored to them.
