So, do you eat those coyotes or just kill them because you have a gun?

That's a big part of what is wrong with this country. Parasites are paid millions of dollars to play games that involve chasing balls. and the stadiums are funded by the taxpayers. Boycott all sports. Even boycott high school sports. don't allow your children to help make some overpaid parasite coachs living.

The free market dictates how much an individual makes. It's called capitalism. The taxpayers receive more than their fare share in revenue generated from games, hotel taxes, cab taxes, food taxes , merchandise taxes and so forth. It's a multi-billion dollar industry where everybody wins except those who can't see it.
Its not capitalisn when the public coffers are robbed to support and pay for any portion of the expence & infrastructure. Now you just repeted the liberal commie bullcrap. Those stadiums cost many more dollars to build and maintain than the tax revenue they generate. Half of the tax revenue generated is consumed by the goverment agencies that collect the taes. It cost more tax dollars for the extra police & public employees required to police the events. If those stadiums where big money makers the private companies would build their own. Paying parasite folks millions of dollars to play games while the making producers are swapping nickles is not sustainable. many public schools and colleges the biggest budget expence is athletics. Rome spent too much on their stadiums. the mayans did likewise . Only some one who has no life wants to live vicariously through watching some one else do things that they themselves cannot do.

What happened to the promised glowbull warming. Ive already had enough of this snow ice and freezing weather. I wish I had a big pile of tires to burn . A big tire kill might help warm things up? At least here in my part of the Ozarks the electricity is still on. The TV and compueter is keeping my wife from getting cabin fever and going beserk! The livestock wont even come out of the barn. I stay busy keeping their drinking water thawed. One good thing the cold makes firewood eally easy to split. One good twak with the splitting mall does the job.

Standing applause! I feel the same way about TV. Watching people pretending to be things they are not is not my idea of entertainment. They are highly overpaid and their opinions over-inflated...like they have more knowledge than a commoner.

"Now you just repeted the liberal commie bullcrap."
So what's new?

Splitting wood is a thing of the past for me. I just flip the switch and the fireplace comes on instantly and stays on all day! It's SO NICE and toasty warm!
No trudging through the snow and ice for armfuls of wood.
No more insects coming to life in the house.
No more scary sparks shooting out onto the carpet.
You should switch to gas, Churm.

Ive found lots of times know it all ]folks are fond of always telling others what they ought to do. I like cutting firewood. I enjoy taking my chainsaw and killing trees. I have one of those outside wood furnaces. It takes big firewood so It dont need splitting. Never any ashes or sparks in the house from it. If I bought gas It would cost money and the parasites would benefit from the sales tax.

The birds were roosting and an artillery shell from new years fireworks exploded and the birds collided with each other by the hundreds. Almost all the birds that were examined showed blunt force trauma. For this to still be posted is unfortunate, I guess human nature is to embellish the unknown or create alternate assumptions to explain what may appear to be supernatural. I was in town that night with family. Anyone living there will tell you the same story. Also earthquakes in guy, its from the beyond normal well fracing on a fault-line. Check the gov quake map for the area, it will show that during the gov mandated cease fracing , the quacks all but stopped. Do your own research false assumptions is what help creates thr opinion that Arkansans are dumb, which isnt the case.
