More Cry Babies worried for them selves and what THEY can do, it is time that Americans start worrying where this County is Headed.
If Americans Keep whining about nothing and start doing something about where this Country is going, they are going to wake up one morning and find themselves on the outside looking in on a Government that took over while they were Whining about them selves.
People if you have not noticed, the Democrats are just about to take over this Country to make it a Dictator Government, if you don’t believe me look at who is controlling this Country right now today, and not wanting to pass a budget that they did not do when they had full control of Government, now they want one, but not by any one else but themselves.
Every thing is to be their way or the Highway, that is not a Government by the People, it is a Government by the Democrats.
US government shutdown runs afoul of hunters
Chicago (AFP) – Hunters hoping to bag their limit on federal land joined a chorus of frustrated citizens urging a halt to the US government shutdown Monday.
“People are traveling hundreds of miles this time of year and getting to their favorite hunting or fishing holes and finding they’ve closed,” said Miles Moretti, president of the Utah-based Mule Deer Foundation.
October marks the beginning of what is usually a brief hunting season for waterfowl and larger game like deer and elk.
But with Congress unable to reach a deal on the federal budget and only essential government work permitted, some 329 federal wildlife refuges have been closed to hunting.
That will increase pressure on already crowded state-run public hunting grounds, and could have a serious economic impact, sportsmen’s groups warned.
It could also dash the dreams of hunters who’ve finally snagged a rare permit.
“In Colorado, hunters who’ve waited 12 years to hunt elk are being forced to turn in their tags,” said Gaspar Perricone, co-director of the Bull Moose Sportsmen’s Alliance.
“The hardship isn’t only being felt by the hunters and anglers, but also by the locals and rural economies that depend on them,” he said in a conference call.
Hunting and fishing is an $86 billion industry while other forms of wildlife recreation, like birdwatching, bring the annual total up to $144 billion.
“It’s a big business,” said Desiree Sorenson-Groves of the National Wildlife Refuge Association.
“For commercial guides, this is Macy’s at Christmas.”
The shutdown also has halted critical habitat conservation efforts which need to be conducted in the fall ahead of the spring breeding season, she said.
Adding insult to injury, people can’t even call their congressmen to complain because the shutdown also affects constituent services.
“Our community is getting pretty frustrated,” said Whit Fosburgh, president of the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership.
“We want the damn thing to be fixed and want the federal government open.”
