Eliza, I just read your profile:
I Believe In:
freedom, choice, liberty, equality & privacy.
Well, duhhhh... If you voted for Obozo, your
contradicted yourself by about 80 percent.
Yes, you will have choice to abort your baby, and you may also be equal to the illegal immigrants, but they MAY have more rights then you.
Privacy? for what? Under a socialist state, you have very little privacy.
Yes, you may be equal to everyone else, but why would you want that? What country has ever been great or even survived where everyone is equal.
Freedom? No, you do not get that in a Marxist state, or even socialist (Marxist lite)states.
Liberty? That's the same as freedom.
Please go and study some American history.
Maybe a few more years will mature you.
Wow. What's with the personal attack? Here's a suggestion: Get a life &stop stalking my profile. Obviously your many years have not matured you.=)

I'm going to Alaska later this year. I'm reading that a High-powered rifle with 30-40 rounds of 300 magnum with 220 grain bullets is recommended. Will my .30-06 pack enough punch? If not, what should I buy? It would make sense to have a sidearm for emergencies..44 mag 6 shot revolver okay?
Find a longer barreled 35 Whelan & that'll make an OK bear gun (better than 30-06). Should be able to find a 275 grain pill to pop out the barrel at 2300 feet per second....top it up a bit & maybe 2400 feet per second. Wildcat your own 30-06 cases & open their mouths to 35 Caliber. No need for an expensive Magnum. Either Hodgedon or IMR 4350 powder should make for a wonderfully efficient & effective round.

Yeah, the .44 should give the Polar Bear trouble till it eats you, specially if the bear comes out of an ice wedge close to you.

Has equality kept America from its greatness? Is that why this country fought to keep 'injuns', blacks, Mexicans, women & the poor under the thumb of european white men?

For way over a century, these groups didn't have freedom under 'democracy' either.

Yes, Eliza Anne, please mature....so you can have as many root canals as Rush.

Hey, my wife has done a deal with an art friend of hers who has paintings published in National Wildlife Magazine, Ranger Rick, Safari, Defenders, Science, The Wildlife Management Institute, the Wildlife Society, & Harvard University Press. She now has a wondrous polar bear painting!
