the long and complicated language insulating and
protecting Amendment 35 and the Game and Fish
Commision's power to regulate. If you want to feel
good- there are numerous physical/mental avenues to
stroke oneself. Just leave the Constitution alone.
Some nickle dime politician thought this up- and good
people (like the elusive and crafty crappie they snare) took the bait.
Then vote "NO" and feel good about it.

Stay busy entertaining yourself with all of your sports activities, but while you are occupied, Washington will be busy chopping away at the Constitution. You know Roman citizens and Greek citizens were so addicted to sports/games that their rulers wound up controlling all they did. Now where are those great empires? Just another way for Government to distract the people while their rights are being removed.

I agree, but please do not neglect your local humane society, like the one here in Stone County. They are not affiliated with ANY other group and really need the help with those unwanted puppies and kittens. Best thing to do is to be a responsible pet owner and have your pet spayed or neutered. Heck, they will even help with that! Plus, they are NOT in favor of banning or fishing. Let's get the messages spread for the people to WAKE UP! before their guns are gone, as well as their right to hunt and fish!
I agree. Animal welfare and Animal rights are two totally different things.
The HSUS and your local shelter are two different things all together.

The Federal Government has to be brought under control, they cannot usurp the authority of your County Sheriff, which is our final protection...the ONLY elected law enforcement officer in the whole US of A. Think about this. The FBI, DEA, Homeland Security..no Federal Agency can come into YOUR county and exercise authority without the consent of the SHERIFF!
AND, that is why we need sheriffs who know the law and have experience and will stand up to the Feds if need be. Look up Sheriffs Richard Mack and Mack Prinze and see what they have done for America!

How many tens of millions of dollars are spent in Arkansas? The language of the proposal is the usual mush
that makes folks feel good and changes nothing. Remember the old story about the guy in a dark blue suit who wets himself? Nobody notices but he feels better.

It's not a outright complete ban on hunting, its a proposition for more hunting limitations. But, I doubt it will pass here, no one likes tightened limits.

Old Global Warming propaganda flyers. The one's with Al Gore's picture on them aren't the softest but are somehow more soothing and do a better job than most name-brand toilet tissues.

Real men wipe their butts with tree products like they have since the dawn of mankind. We just figured out how to make it more comfortable.

I can't tell you how much is spent per state.
Are you familiar with this subject at all or just looking for an argument?
I'm leaning toward the latter.
Are you familiar with any successes and/or failures these groups have had thus far?
I am still waiting for your link to the organizations that are working toward banning tennis.

Sort of like most Southerners. As an over 35 year old guy
I thought I had seen and heard the most idiocy imaginable-
but "Guest" takes it to another lower level. I wish we were back to the days when folks had to write on bathroom walls and then sneak
out. And not sit in front of a keyboard and send venom. I am
saddened and ashamed by posts like these.
