More than 1,000 dead birds fall from sky in Ark

Jan 2, 2011 | Posted by: Inisa Love | Full story: news.yahoo.com

BEEBE, Ark. Wildlife officials are trying to determine what caused more than 1,000 blackbirds to die and fall from the sky over an Arkansas town.

The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission said Saturday that it began receiving reports about the dead birds about 11:30 p.m. the previous night. The birds fell over a 1-mile area of Beebe, and an aerial survey indicated that no other dead birds were found outside of that area.

She's not that bad. She understands more about what we are saying than most liberals. She has somebody else do her dirty work for her than she reaps the benefits. Her husband is an elk killer and she eats the meat..

Now you have sunk to a new low. Since you cant refute our post with any real facts. And since your dislike and disagree with the message you now resort to attacking the messenger. You response reminds me of a liberal democrat. When they feel they are losing the debate that's their method of operation.

Even you and I disagree. Im Pretty shure you have stated you disapprove of hunting over bait. Your contention was that its not what a sportsman does. I think my reply was I am not a sportsman. My harvesting & killing is done for the food, pelt or the extermination of anything I deem to be a detrimental varmit.

You miss the point. But then you don't understand my sense of humor. I WANT people to laugh at my thoughts. I WANT them to laugh at my comments. I come to Topix to escape. To have some fun. To debate. To share ideas. To learn. To educate others. Sometimes I'm dead serious. Sometimes not.

I could have kept arguing the point about whether those guys should harvest, or kill, animals that didn't deserve to die, and I started to type just that, but I would have been spinning my wheels and going nowhere fast. So I deleted and changed my response for a different kind of reaction.....

Oh, never mind! You have never met me, so I don't expect you to understand.

Funny, you still consider me a "liberal" simply because I like animals. Conservatives are not "allowed" to like animals in your world? That's okay because I also consider YOU a liberal. You are the one that believes people shouldn't have the freedoms our founders believed in. You are the one who believes we have not lost any of our freedoms.

That comment was hardly an "attack."

I have told you before in many ways you are very intelligent. Maybe a little outdated in your view and understanding of this predator/prey relationship thing and the importance of BOTH predator and prey as it relates to healthy populations of ALL wildlife. AND you need a little work in the "compassion" area for other living things.
Other than that, I believe you are a fine fella! LOL

It is not hunting if it's over bait.
If I was a hunter,(and doing it for "sport,") I would have much more fun tracking an animal. If I was starving, it wouldn't matter where it was taken.

I had a blast last winter tracking the grouse through the snow. I was successful at capturing the bird and it was a very fulfilling way to spend the cold, snowy days.

I can't wait until this winter to do it again!(IF they are still around.) I have no reason to believe they won't be, unless my neighbors cats get them. She told me she currently feeds ALOT of strays and more keep appearing.

Tanks for the link. Im pretty much disappointed with the way our republic has declined. The Obama care was the last straw for me. Tha supreme court got it wrong. the Obama care law forces me to engage in commerce. If I refuse I am deemed a criminal subject to punishment. Ill not omply. There is no reward great enough to entice me to buy health insurance, There is no punishment harsh enough to force me to comply. There isn't now and hasn't been for a wile a viable political or ballot box solution. So where does that leave Us. What Next? If we don't stop the UN & NWO we become completely communist. I of the opinion better dead than red. Its time to revolt.

I am the one who has ALL of my freedoms. I am the one who will never let anybody take any of my freedoms away. I am the one who is still waiting to hear from you exactly what freedom has been stripped away from you?

The freedom to keep the money I earn through the fruits of my labor.
The freedom to use any mind altering substance of my choosing.
The freedom to drive my truck without the gestapo peering through my window to see what I'm wearing, or not wearing.
The freedom to keep any personal information that I want to remain personal from being furnished to anyone who wants it.
The freedom to not purchase something I do not want.
The freedom to take cold medicine with me on vacation in case I get a cold.
The freedom to have a toilet that actually flushes everything the first time.
The freedom to use light bulbs that don't need a hazmat team to be called if a bulb breaks.
The freedom to camp in the unit of my choice on lands that I pay taxes on.

Good enough?

That's like saying you want the freedom to walk around the mall naked, you want the freedom to camp on the White House lawn, you want the freedom to purchase child porn on the internet, you want the freedom to defecate in the streets, you want the freedom to drive in reverse at 60 mph on the freeway. You get freedom confused with laws, procedures, rules and regulations. You libs really crack me up.
