THANK YOU! Exactly what I argued on another thread. NATURE TAKES CARE OF BUSINESS! We have no right getting involved.
I SAY BAR_KEEP FOR PRESIDENT! LOL!
I suppose thats why we have a flu virus going around, by inhibiting its critical effects on the human race we are interfering with nature, God must want some people dead or he wouldn't make such a cunning virus, perhaps thats why he offers bad people like Hitler forgivness so they can work with him on viruses, if only our so called goody-two-shoes pharacutical companies didnt interfer then God cound get on with his work and leave those of us that are left to get on with ours

I thought we had our quota of Presidential candidates already chosen, have I missed something? And Bar_Keep doesnt seem to be a suitable roll-off-the-tongue name, Now McCain and Palin well that does

But it's not doing its business fast enough for some.
The next time you hear about a city being wiped off the map by tornadoes or hurricanes, don't feel bad for all of the dead people and animals; nature's just taking care of business.
/just saying - nature can be just as cruel as people
//I'd rather be killed by bullet than starvation or disease
Now that does make good sense, I support healthy cleansing, just as we all use bleach in our bathroom equipment so God has a way of dealing with bad people, as nice kindly Christian people we just dont know just how bad they really are but God does and since he has an overall picture of truth then we should rejoice in his wonderful decision making processes, I notice the sort of places he chooses in the world and can understand why.
Have you noticed he carefully never chooses the places the rightous live in, the question -WHY- is what these bad dirty poor people should ask themselves before yearning for a free handout from hardworking and good taxpaying folk after they have been punished.
Dont feel the need to reply, I know if you are a nice clean person you will be with me on this, those amongst us just stand out and quietly shine goodness.

You realize you just contradicted yourself, right? You said, "I totally agree with you that nothing good can come from killing off or trying to 'control' a certain species," and in the next sentence you praised zoo officials for intervening when the baby panda's health started to deteriorate. Are we not controlling the species when we step in to prevent what nature has decided?
/just playing Devil's Advocate
Yes, pal you are soooo right, whats the fuss with all these animals that cant adapt and keep themselves alive anyways
If one of our local clubs or pubs closes down due to a drugs bust or sumthin you dont find me weeping in me beer, noooo Im out night night again and into a new crowd blink o an eye mate
These critters need a bit more balls so they can go find a new takeaway, so what? theyre tree eaters arnt they? so go find another tree the woods are full o them
Anyway we have loads of picture for these funny looking thingys anyways (smelly to arnt they?) so if you miss them just grab the DVD and soak it up Sid

But we're still intervening. Even if we, as greedy humans, almost killed them off, if nature had intended for them to thrive, would they not have done so on their own?
Do you have any pets? If so, do you allow them to roam around and hunt their own food? If you don't, are you not going against what nature intended, even having pets in the first place?
Keep in mind that despite PA allows this pigeon hunt each year, and despite the fact that the falcons in Center City prey on them, they still thrive. Nature has provided for them, even with human intervention.

My, my, my, aren't most of you so critical? There's nothing better for relieving the stress of the workday than going out and relieving that stress. My hunting buddies and I prefer to call it Pigeon Plastering. After downing a few brews (birch beer), we grab our shotguns, loadem to the gills with high brass, number 7 and 1/2 shot, and do the manly task of what a man does best, ventilate those little critters. Sure it's a sport, just like when they aim their butts at you as you walk along any large city street, or how they'll plaster the tops of buildings and statues with their liquid doo-doo. We prefer to think we are doing you
non-shooters a real service. Legislators in our back pockets, don't think so. They are just helping to uphold a tradition. So, sorry if you disagree with what we do. Chillax and move on with your life, cause stress can kill. Why not join us?
