Government Shutdown Looms, Rumors Of Short Term Deal…

April 8, 2011 @ 10:00 Mtn.

UPDATE: I just heard Paul Begalla on CNN say there ZERO riders in this budget bill. If that’s true we’ve won a big battle to keep wolves protected.

Here we are again, another deadline, another threat the government will be shut down. Is the wolf delisting rider still in the bill, is Tester trying to include it at the last-minute? I don’t know. They are telling us very little.

Wolves and the ESA are not even being mentioned. I think there is a reason for that. They don’t want people calling them about a wolf slaughter, if the rider passes. Well guess what, that’s exactly what we should be doing and continue to do until there is absolutely no wolf delisting riders included in the budget bill.

I predict they will fund the government for another week to avert the shutdown. But continue to call Senator Reid and your Senators. Tell them no wolf delisting riders in the budget bill. Tell them to stop the attack on the ESA.

I don’t know about you but I sick and tired of this continued attack on wolves.

Possible deal in works as shutdown deadline nears

By DAVID ESPO, AP Special Correspondent 22 mins ago

WASHINGTON – Perilously close to a government shutdown, the White House and congressional leaders closed in on a possible deal to cut tens of billions of dollars in federal spending and avert the closure, officials said Friday night.

House Republican leaders summoned their rank and file to a late night meeting for what aides said would be an update on the talks.

Democrats said they were reviewing the details of a possible tentative agreement.

Who’s Afraid Of The Big, Bad Idaho Legislature?

It looks like some people are more afraid of the Idaho legislature, after they passed the “wolf emergency resolution”. then they are of wolves. I salute the “flat-earthers” in the Idaho legislature for making themselves look completely and utterly foolish, proving once again why Idaho should never, ever be allowed to ‘manage” wolves who are so unfortunate to live in that state.


“On Tuesday, Huckleberries — an Idaho blog of the Spokesman-Review newspaper in Spokane, Wash. — posted an online poll that asked readers, “What scares you more: the Idaho Legislature in the Statehouse or wolves in the forest?”

The legislators won, 74 percent to 10 percent.”


And in the end, hysteria triumphs in Idaho Legislature


They have totally lost it. This statement alone is enough to prove that.

From the Spokesman Review:

“Last-minute legislation to declare a disaster emergency in Idaho due to wolves has cleared the Senate on a 27-8 vote and headed to the governor’s desk, after just being introduced in the House two days ago. “There’s anti-wolf coalition groups all over the state that are pleading with us to do something,” declared Sen. Monty Pearce, R-New Plymouth, the bill’s Senate sponsor. He said people in Idaho are living in fear of their children being attacked by wolves at school bus stops, and “women going to the mailbox and being held hostage by wolves surrounding them.”


Wake up flat-earthers….wolves have not killed anyone in the lower forty eight in a hundred years of record keeping. They are not snatching children from bus stops or attacking anyone. This is what fear mongering and scapegoating will do. If you want to fear something how about  hunting accidents, almost 100 people are killed EVERY year in hunting accidents and 1ooo more are injured. That’s a threat to innocent people, including children.

Toddler killed in hunting accident by stray bullet in Bethel

SWAN LAKE, N.Y.  —  An upstate toddler was killed by a stray bullet when a New York City deer hunter fired his rifle too close to her grandparents’ Hudson Valley home.

Edward Taibi, 45, of Queens was being held without bail Monday after arraignment on a second-degree manslaughter charge in the town of Bethel court. Taibi was hunting from a tree stand Sunday afternoon in rural Sullivan County when he shot a deer. He came down from the stand and fired the .30-caliber rifle again about 400 feet away from a trailer home in Swan Lake, a small community just south of the Catskill Mountains.

The bullet hit 16-month-old Charly Skala in the upper body. She was flown to Westchester Medical Center, where she died. Police said the child’s parents live in nearby Woodburne.

Our beloved dogs bite four million people every  year and kill another twenty or so. I’m a dog lover  but those are the facts. Are we going to pass emergency resolutions to stop hunting in Idaho or pass a law forbidding people from owning dogs, because they sometimes bite and kill people? Certainly not!

This behavior shows how crazy and nutty this has gotten. It’s the Salem Witch Hunts all over again. No facts just spreading lies and fear. Shame on the people who are promoting this. SHAME!!!!!!!
