Off topic eh? Since when is posting about the lack of meaningful conservation reforms off topic when it directly effects waterfowl in MN? Will it bring instantainious results-no. But will it bring about long term results if the reforms are passed? Yes, and that is based on MO where they have conservation reforms in place for years and the the results of the reforms.
I have ? for you.
Were you at the Duck Rally in April?
Did you bother to to even send an email to your elected official regarding the reforms? Or call them?
Did you attend a hearing at the Captiol?
Did you take ANY action at all the change the status quo of our wowfully underfunded natural resources in MN?
I hope you did.
BTW I vote by the issue--and conservation is a big issue for me. Meaning I have voted for Dem candidates before. I am NOT a Rep party line voter at all! But I call it the way I see it. And those in the know, are quite aware of what Sen Johnson promised and what he delivered-which is 2 entirely night and day differences. I based my opinions about him on his inactions-not on what he said he would do.
And Yes I would be bitching if it was Republican leader who was stonewalling the conservation reforms in MN.
But as it is--it is it is mostly the Reps as of late trying to instill the reforms and the Dems blockading them. Do yourself and all of us a favor--the time it took to write the above topic you could have sent an email to the your beloved Dems and asked them to support the reforms. If you wrote once-write them again. As for egregarious, the the House which is controlled by the Rep have indeed passed the reforms and Gov Pawlenty said he would sign it. Yet the Sen which is controlled by the Dems has not passed any reforms at all. Do you really think that is a coincidence? Remember Sen Dean Johnson is the Majority leader there. I guess I caused a reaction in you, so how about funnelling it into action that would help the outdoors and others in MN?
And lastly if you really wanted to help the inexperienced hunters here, would't you have been occasionally posting up a topic or replying to a topic to be of help to them? But 7 months and not 1 reply here anywhere on DHC to help those you said you wanted to help. I sincerely hope you do take the time to help them
And lastly as it has been said elsewhere here--You have the power of choice of whether to read the topic or not. Whether to reply to a topic or not. If you do not like what I write becuase you feel it has political overtones to it--then please do not read it as with any topic by any member here. And as always, leave the personalities out of it, and debate the principles instead if you disagree with what is wrote..
