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.

I didn't say I didn't "like" the swans. I do. But native species ALWAYS takes precedence over the introduced/alien species in cases where the aliens are aggressive and killing or outcompeting the natives for resources, such as nesting sites. Ever seen an altercation between swans and geese in a place where they are both trying to nest? The swans always win, but the geese are the native species.
What about the swans FREEDOM to live and migrate and nest wherever he wants? Which came first the chicken or the egg?

That sentence could just as easily read: Smith hops into his Mercury and heads north out of the city. At 10:20 A.M., while driving north on I-35 about 35 miles from the Kansas border, Smith is stopped by trooper Charles Hanger for having no license plates on his vehicle. He is arrested for having no vehicle registration, no license plates, and carrying a concealed weapon without a permit. He is booked and lodged in the county jail in Perry, Oklahoma.
What crime did Smith commit against an individual citizen according trooper Charles Hanger?(other than not giving the government money?)
What about the 2nd amendment? Does Smith NOT have right to carry a weapon, without giving the government even more money?
Why did Smith immediately lose his freedom for PRESUMABLY not violating anybody's rights and being PRESUMED innocent until he's found guilty in court?
Well your fantasy land Smith does not have the RIGHT to drive. He has the PRVILGE to drive. When he signed up to drive he agreed there would be laws, rules and regulations governing his driving. He doesn't have to drive now does he? Smith could carry a weapon in my state without any problems. Does smith have the right to drive around with a ton of volatile explosive materials in his U Haul Truck? Does smith have the right to drive over 100 mph in the city if he feels like it? Smith lost his FREEDOM for blowing up children, even a lib like you can see that.

coyotes/deer- both natives! Both have done well together for thousands of years, until humans came into the country and thought they knew better.
Please take an environmental science/ecology class. You'll learn a lot...if you pay attention.
I never said you are evil, nor do I think you are. I just think you are so wrong, and so misguided, to be so hell-bent on destroying every predator you see.
Lady I had two coyotes in my yard this morning. I am not even putting a dent in the coyote population. Now deer are becoming even more scarce. What is native to you? How do you know what was here before you and man showed up here? You act like you are some sort of New Mexico biologist. You do not have the foggiest idea about New Mexico's eco system or the challenges this state faces yearly with predators and prey. Hell you can't even manage your own life in the state you live in and now you want to manage where I live. LMAO! Only a liberal mind would think they could do that. Pay attention and you will learn something here on topix..

The chicken came first. Whatever laid the egg wasn't a chicken. so its egg wasn't a chicken egg. The was a egg of the bird that laid it. Ill will simplify. Say I have a flock of white leghorn chickens. All there eggs will be white leghorn eggs. So I let them inbreed and out of one of those eggs there hatches a brown leghorn. the brown leghorn when it starts laying will lay brown leghorn eggs. The brown leghorn came first.

Peace, live in it or rest in it.
You appear to get it. You harm another, violate their rights, you pay consequences.

What if you do NOTHING to hurt another? For instance, you sit on your piece of property alone, no one around (except a nearby cop with binoculars) and you smoke joint?(People smoke joints since beginning times). Cop trespasses your property, takes you away. You no want to go with him because you want freedom.

Why they tell you no smoke joint? You not adult? You not make own decisions? What you hurt by smoking joint on property? You not driving. You no risk to anybody. You do not have freedom. Laws against joints stop no one from smoking them. Laws only create criminals out of harmless people. Laws cost BIG money. Many people make BIG money from laws! We lose freedoms, so others can get rich.

well that's ok on public property. however if that swan came to my place and started beating up on my ducks and fighting and raping the geese it wouldn't be welcome. We have trumpeter swans that do sometimes stay in Arkansas during the winter.

The fact is passing laws dosent necessarily solve the preceved problem. You cannot legislate moral behavior. You can only police a people or society to the extent that they allow you to. Myself if given half a chance ill obey most laws. However if I believe a certain law infringes on the god given inalienable rights the framers outlined in the Bill or Rights. I believe its my patriotic duty to not obey it. Every person has to make their own decision,s after all their the one who has to live with them.
I believe this is one issue where we see eye to eye!

LMFAO! Yeah, the cops are really concerned with you sitting on your property out in the middle of nowhere smoking a joint. "Laws against joints stop no one from smoking them." Well with that LIBERAL LOGIC than laws against speeding in town stops no one from speeding, laws against molesting children stop no one from molesting them, laws against rape stop no one from raping them, laws against burglary stops no one from being burglarized, laws against murder stop no one from being murdered. Yes I see, with that liberal logic there should be NO LAWS because LAWS don't work! And I thought you were the morals Police!

You believe in the balance of nature Myth. There never was and never will be a balance of nature. In order for there to ne a balance everything would need to be static. The earth its climate and its inhabitants are in a constant state of flux. Since you Got that part wrong everything else is flawed. The only constant is change. Today There are more deer & coyote in North America than where in existance at any time ever.
You're right in a sense. There is never a perfect "balance" in nature. But we have learned from past mistakes that you cannot eliminate all predators and expect prey populations all the way down the chain, even including vegetation, to be healthy and diverse. There HAS TO be predators. That is just a fact. I agree everything changes all the time. But man has gone above and beyond what nature does to quickly wipe out certain beneficial species, often because of our own self-centered wished.

Driving a car is not a RIGHT it is a privilege! I know that you think laws are not meant for you that they are meant for everybody else but that is not the case in the real world. Everybody I know that complains about seatbelts is overweight. I tell them to lose a few pounds and they won't even notice they have the damn thing on. Remember driving is not a right!
FEEDOM does not man knowing right from wrong and good from bad. FREEDOM might give you the ability to make wise choices it doesn't guarantee that you will. Just look at yourself it is obvious by ALL of your FREEDOM posts that you did not choose wisely where you live! Who made you the morals Police?
"Driving a car is not a RIGHT it is a privilege!"
You mean as in "a privilege given to us by other men?"
In other words, those other men can come to you at any time and take away your cars, your keys and your license. And they can do this for any reason they choose, just by enacting another law and claiming you disobeyed it.
You really have an effed up idea about what freedom is.

You tell me. You are the one who knows all the New Mexico hunting restrictions. BTW, hawk is off limits to you in New Mexico.

Even if you were starving to death, other men made the law that you could not kill a hawk and eat it. They would rather see you starve! Even as an animal lover and a meat eater, I find it quite odd that other members of our species tell us what and when we can and can't kill to eat. No other species on earth does that.

Smith is also presumed innocent of blowing up children until he is tried and found guilty in court. Or did you forget about that part of our law? And his car should not have been searched without just cause. What was the just cause? Not having a plate is not just cause. He could have just bought the car, or someone could have stole the plate while he was in a store.
