John C , first of all I have to say I have alot of respect for your helpfulness in Taxidermy problems,and I feel the sameway about George, Dave Toms , and Yox. Even though I have been doing Taxidermy since the late 1960's , I have learned alot of things from you guys. I served in the war in Vietnam and love my country , but I realize that some of us look at politics different . You had along with others really got on Cecil awhile back over his political views and now you take it on your own to try and get a big political stir going about Sen. Kerry and the NRA . I have alot of respect for Kerry , he is an avid hunter and a hero from the Vietnam war and I can find no where in the NRA files where they condem him . By the way John were you in Vietnam ? Don't get me wrong , I think people can be both Democrats and Republicans and get along . Thats the way I feel and my views from just an old hard working Kentucky Taxidermist.....

Nope not Nam, thank God. I had the 1-A card but hostilities ended.
I did a search for Kerry and found his website, he pretty much condems the NRA and had links to anti-NRA sites.
I will vote for whom I think can and will do the best job!
I am on the Conserv. side of the house. I think we should do a bit of a isolationist state, just keep nukes and WMD's out of the hands of idiots, covert ops, but thats not our way.
This year I intend to keep informed and voice my opionin of politics.
This year maters more than the last election, I feel its time to put the people choice in place and the SOB better what he claims he will! Nomore second chances when they screw up the first time.
My its funny how ideals change over time, "
"Yesterdays hero may not be America's future."
Its a long road to the Whitehouse.
Thanks for serving our country and sticking up for me. I know I stir the pot from time to time, but it really irks me with some on here that have the attiude, "It's my way or the highway," and if you don't agree with me you're a moran. Boths sides of the aisle have their flaws and good points, and if we had only one party and one view, we would be no better than a dictorship. Keep saying what you feel regardless of the bashing you get on here. That's what you fought for.
BTW, I was born in Kentucky and have sister that lives there. Great state.

Does it really matter who gets elected? All politicians make promises and give their word, "This is How its Gonna Be and What I intend to do If I am elected", bla bla bla. But once elected they only do what is best for them and their family, Lies, Lies, Lies, Lies, This is why I dont vote period. Just think how much money they make for lying to the american people. Its pathetic.
And our Tax dollars pay them when they are elected, I could think of a million other things to use taxpayers money for other than support those who are ruining our country.
In 1776 the founders of the United States of America decided that their official language would be English (not German) -- by one vote.
In 1923 Adolf Hitler became Leader of the National Socialist Party of Germany -- by one vote.
I don't need to tell you how close the 2000 presidential election was. It could be another close one this time.
Please don't be so cynical. Having been all over the world, I have seen we do have a lot to be thankful for here even with our problems. If you ever lived in a country where you had no choices of who your leader was, or didn't have the right to vote, you would defintely know what you are missing.
You do have a point, in that politicians promise us the moon to get elected (with Bush it's the moon and mars), but if we would all vote we could make them more accountable. Please don't give up on our system.
How do you think Dan was "sticking up for" you? He was asking a question and made a good point, INDEPENDANTLY OF YOUR SWILL. John told him where to find the information. Last week you were all uhrah over Howard Dean, now you've switched your bandwagon. Can't you decide who your hero is? Why, did Dean's post Iowa caucus show you what he looks like when he's off his medications. Even the DNC has voiced some "shock" over his actions.
I'm well aware of John Kerry's military history. He's a JFK wannabe. It just grates a little on me that he's flaunting it the way he does. Most people who were real hero's don't like advertising it. (AND I WASN'T so that excuses me as well.) The liberals like him are lamenting how the current administration is catering to the rich, but HE'S not giving up any of HIS salary, is he? And since the Heinz catsup fortune is backing his run, has anybody asked his wife what SHE thinks? (I notice she's not very talkative. LOL)
I for one will be glad when November comes regardless of who wins. At least maybe the taxidermy net can get back to taxidermy and Cecil will shut the hell up with his stupid diatribes that only he enjoys reading. But then again, I have to consider the source, and that makes it very questionable.
George, I never said I liked Dean. Your memory is faulty or you're making this up. You've done this twice now. I defy you to find where I espoused Dean anywhere on this site. I did so for Clark once, but not Dean.
Talk taxidermy? That's what I'm wondering about you. You rountinely insult anyone with questions or a viewpoint different than yours. I bet I help more people on here than you do 10 to 1. And then there's your orange button cop out.
You can have the last word as I need to get some work done. Unlike you I don't sit here all day waiting to insult someone. How in the world do you get any taxidermy done?
