    So my doorbell rings today and its a solicitor for Missouri Proposition B.

    I ask her the run down about the bill and she looks up and says "Are you a hunter?" (She must have noticed my camo hat) I respond, yes and why do you ask? She says, well, "Not only does prop b. give more rights to dogs, it affects deer, horses, chickens, cattle etc...."

    So, I ask her "Whats that got to do with deer." She responds "Hunting is an inhumane hobby." I swung the door closed and called the sheriff, we have a no soliciting policy at the subdivision.

    So I decided to look at the bill and see if it really affects hunting, and it does!

    Here are some excerpts from the websites I found, VOTE NO ON PROP B! The last line is actually a link to the vote for truth website.

    "Their idea of utopia is a United States with NO animal ownership; NO meat to eat; NO pets; NO hunting; NO fishing; NO service animals."

    Don’t be fooled by the slick television ads or the Hollywood celebrities. The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) is not your local pet shelter but an east coast fund raising organization. Very little (less that one-half of 1 percent) of the money it raises is used to rescue dogs and cats but rather to finance an extremist agenda that is targeting pet breeders, livestock producers and hunters.

    [. . .] If Proposition B passes, it will only be a matter of time before HSUS is back in the state with both farmers and hunters in its sights. Enough is enough; we do not need new rules and regulations. Vote no on Proposition B.

    Click here for the truth about proposition B, its against hunters and farmers too!

    My FIL read it as well. That's why he called me. It's the Anti's at their finest! As far as I'm concerned they can go eat a pile of rotten tomatoes. Little eyes around here-- so I play nice:D
    On the other hand I'm mad as all get out! Nobody is taking away my deer, turkey, beef and other critters. I'll eat it raw in their face just to make them mad!!

    I heard that a few states are trying to get hunting turned into a constitutional right. I hope MO does the same.

    I can't stand any of these "anti" groups but honestly anytime ANYONE tries to sell me something and fear tactics are their number one strategy I tend to go the other way.

    I don't care if the "selling" is for a politician, a bill, a law, a religion, or a set of pots and pans I am totally turned off by the fear tactic. It usually means that the position from which they are selling is weak and that's all they have to stand on.

    To me making decisions in life always makes more sense when they are based on facts and not fear.

    That's why you're not supposed to go around the word filter like that. It's still obvious what is meant.
