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.

Other countries don't shell out billions in foreign aid. Why aren't illegals breaking through their borders? We just have to let them know we are broke and they will get NOTHING but a ride home if they show up here.

The security of America does not hinge on going to other countries and killing people who have not attacked us. It lessens our security.

I simply told a dumbass army captian ( did anyone ever tell you to go F--k yourself). followed by the universal hand sign of contempt. I used to have it framed and hanging on the living room wall. That house burnt and they wouldnt send me a replacement copy. Any how too many officers died in my vicinity and I was suspect. I simply kept saluting them as-----s I cant help it the snipers killed them. They shoulda been nicer to us privates. Instead of thinking we where cannon fodder.
I'm sorry to hear that..... that they wouldn't send you a replacement copy.

I don't suppose you know what a Canyon wren is? I'm wondering if they have a population of them there. I revolve my trips around what birds I'll see and/or hear. The Canyon Wren has one of the prettiest songs in the country and I haven't heard them in so long. We don't get them here. I'm considering my next birding trip and they are at the top of my list.

I shot one of those this morning. LOL! No not really. I have seen them in some rock cliffs in Western New Mexico near the Saw Tooth Mountains. They are noisy, in a good way.

Our government is no better. They send Billions of $$ overseas, often to our enemies.
That money is bribe money, it helps keep big bombs out of crazy hands and keeps most of their citizens on their own soil. It's a necessary evil unfortunately.

So could I. I don't place much value on violent criminals. I may feel bad for the families of those people, because I'm sure they are still loved by somebody.
Animals, yes, I would feel bad over it. Because they did NOTHING to deserve it. When an animal kills, it isn't because they're evil. It's just what they do to survive. I am indifferent about that.
Don't be disappointed in your fellow citizen. Many of us feel the same way you do about the government and the needless wars.
I have killed many a dog when I was a kid. You see these dogs were dropped off out in the country because do gooder city folk couldn't take care of them anymore and thought a country home would suit them well. After a while these dogs pack up and roam around killing sheep, chickens, pigs, cattle goats and just about anything else they can get their teeth sunk into. They didn't kill to eat they killed to kill, for the fun of it. There are evil animals out there also. Less now that I took care of some!

Tell that to the family of the victims of 9-11 or Pearl Harbor. We have to go to where the radicals are at. They attacked us. We don't kill unless we have to.

"9-11 or Pearl Harbor"
Two examples of attacks on us where we did rightfully retaliate.

But, Do you REALLY think we have NOT bombed countries that have NOT attacked us??? REALLY???

Those people are not do-gooders. They are irresponsible pet owners who are too selfish and lazy to seek out a good home for a family member they decide they don't want anymore. That is evil, IMO.

When I decide to bring a dog home and make him part of my family, that's it, he is part of the family and will stay that way until he dies. If only people were as loyal to their pets as their pets are to them.

When the churmudgeon animal kills it isnt because he is evil or hateful It,s just what I do to enshure my property survives. Ive got a cow that looks horrible. Its ears are torn off right at the skull. Its nose was bitten & torn so it appears to have a harelip. Its tail has the switch missing. and it constantly has a runny nose. A cows ears connect to the frontal sinus. All caused by dogs that irresponsible pet owers let roam at large. that cow did NOTHING to deserve it. Those dogs maimed that cow just for fun. They where bored and just wanted to harm some innocent ole cow. They where owned and well fed healthy animals. They didnt need to be cow molesters to survive. Those bad dogs did indeed deserve to be caught in a body grip trap. The Churmudgeon made shure those dogs didnt do that no more times. If I was hard hearted I would shipp ole bony to the slaughter facility. But I keep her kinda for show & tell. She get,s special feed every day. she even had a calf this year. The calf grew poorly because she cant graze properly and didnt have much milk. By the way Its the law that kills the violent criminals not the person who flips the switch.

I believe they make things for that.
I also heard of a new technology recently. Check this out.

Punctured my right ear with a stick. Icant pass the test to get a health card for driving a semi truck. There was this 80 year old doctor that I went to to get my health card. He was deaf also so didnt notice I talk loud & couldnt hear properly. I also took a digital camera picture of his eye chart and memorized it. 20-20 vision without glasses! sadly he died and I couldnt get a health card anymore. So now my CDL is downgraded. It was time I quit herding around a big long 80,000 pound truck anyhow.

That camel jockey goat herder was responsible for bringing down one of our Marine Barracks killing hundreds of Marines and the Lockerbie Bombing over England. He got what he deserved. And you never heard a peep out of him again until his own people killed the murdering thug. Good riddance.

His ten year old daughter was innocent. It was wrong kill her. they should have went after him in a different manner. I know for a fact losing a child is a fate worse than death.

It was a fate he brought upon himself. You know how many children were on that plane over Lockerbie? You know how many parents lost their children during that barraks attack. You know what I mean. I agree women and children should be off limits but there comes a time when you fight fire with fire. And they did not target his child, they were going after him.
