Let’s be civil.
The Flathead Beacon encourages vigorous discussion and lively debate, but we will delete comments that attack other readers, make accusations we can’t verify, stray too far off topic, criticize local businesses (call them if you have a problem), accuse someone of a crime, use profanity or are simply judged to be in bad taste.

What is it about liberals and their fascination with predators…Can it have something to do with the
predatory nature of liberalism? ... Liberals certainly seem to share a common bond with any critter that
just want’s to tear the throat out of little Bambi.

OMG Russ!  The severity of your victim mentality is unparralleled in my online experience.  I am
sorry it causes you so much pain.

Russ, a predator is killing and eating to survive. We kill for the thrill. The difference is we
are supposed to be civilized. Don’t assume you know somebody’s politics just because
they are concerned with how humans treat animals. Common sense crosses party lines…

“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the manner in which its
animals are treated.”  Mahatma Ghandi

Sorry guy’s, but I am going to have to stick to my theory that liberals share a special commonality and
empathy with natures predators because of the predatory nature of liberalism itself.  This theory is
based on years of concentrated observation and study.  I mean, after all, when was the last time you
ever heard a liberal proclaim:  “Save the Elk”?

I like Reagan’s quote - “Hi, Ah’m from the guvment, ‘n Ah’m here to hep you”  (that’s about how it
sounded in Ga.).  Anyway - doesn’t compare to Ghandi, of course, but I wonder what Ghandi might say
about about our present day “Fearless Leader” chairman Obumov and old Bumpus Joe.
