Sarah Palin taunts Piers
Morgan with picture of bear she
shot dead and posted on Facebook

Daily Mail (UK), by Jessica Jerreat

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 10/26/2013 3:48:52 PM

Sarah Palin found a novel way to turn down an interview request from Piers Morgan on Friday, posting a picture on Facebook of a bear she had shot dead and a note saying she was busy. The former Alaska governor thanked chat show host Morgan for inviting her on his ´shambolic show´ but added she was ´kind of busy right now´. The Facebook message, which had been liked by nearly 3,000 of Palin´s supporters within two hours of it being posted, is part of an online spat between the pair after Morgan poked fun at her intellect. Earlier in the

Piers Morgans ratings are in the toilet. There is no reason in the world why she should rescue his show.

A dissent here, and probably discordant.

She not only shot the bear, but in my book - jumped the shark. Hunting? - okay, if you insist. But I don´t find glorying in unnecessarily killing animals auspicious for either her or her causes.

Why do people kill animals that are not for food? Deer? Yes. Elk? Yes. But no one eats bear. I like Sarah Palin but don´t like this...

Hunting is not unnecessarily killing animals; it is a necessary and humane way of keeping the numbers balanced. What´s better, thinning the numbers humanely or letting them starve?

B: Should bears be allowed to run wild? True, we may have encroached on ´´their´´ territory, but let them kill you because of it? What part of subdue the earth did you not understand?!

#6 and #7, obviously you are city dwellers. Where I live, people hunt bear for its meat (some hunt with bows/arrows and others use guns). Palin´s family eats wild game and I cannot imagine they kill for pure sport and leave perfectly good food behind to spoil. Whatever they kill goes to their family or another to help them survive. Oh, and if someday you need meat and get a bear, I´m told it is important to skin it as soon as possible so the meat tastes better.

I come from a hunting and shooting family but personally wont hunt. Tried it once. Had my revolver aimed at the stupid deer´s head 20 feet away. She just looked at me. I deliberately missed the shot and she ran off. Never went out hunting again. (Strangely, I was never invited again...)
All that said, I have no desire to prevent anyone else from it, and in fact let a local guy hunt my land in return for his watching the place when I´m not around.
I did some time in Alaska and ran into my share of bears. When they get aggressive, they will kill you with very little warning and no remorse.

The first time I had bear meat I was ten years old. It tasted like chicken (jk). I´m not a big meat eater, but it was good.

People do eat bear meat. If one doesn´t know that, then one doesn´t know much about the subject.

Kind of like those critics who have decided they despise Palin and mock her, like Piers Morgan. These critics don´t know their subject. If they got off their lazy behinds and read her record *objectively* and *honestly*, they would admire her, whether they are Republicans or Democrats, that´s how balanced and accomplished she was as governor.

If they still don´t admire and respect her after learning, then they don´t have a shred of integrity.

I have no problem with people who hunt for food. That´s what our ancestors did. Finns love bear meat. It is a delicacy. I personally couldn´t hunt unless I had to, but I would if I were hungry and there was no Safeway anymore!

Its important to realize some of us do eat bear. The meat makes wonderful jerky and the fat is used for soap.

Another thing to realize is that bears in general are devastating to deer and caribou populations. All states have a Department of Natural Resources, and they manage the bear populations. In Alaska as well as other states, you can not just go out and kill a bear. You must draw a tag. Of the tags drawn, about 100 in SC, 2 - 3 bears are actually taken. The season is also short, about 20 days. And, most bears are trapped and taken to the back country

One other tidbit, many of us who hunt donate game animals, processed of course, to families who would not otherwise have a source of lean high protein meats.

So much good comes from harvesting these animals. I always have my granddaughter with me. She´s a good shot with the rifle and a respectful naturalist.

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats.

On Tuesday morning, a plane owned in trust by the Bank of Utah showed up in a very visible area of the Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran. What was it doing there exactly? Nobody knows, reports The New York Times. Under President Barack Obama, the United States has eased some of the long-standing punitive economic sanctions against Iran. Still, very little American — or European — economic activity is allowed inside the religious theocracy. The Bank of Utah is certainly no Wells Fargo. The Ogden-based community bank has all of 13 branches including

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W.

They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons.

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups.
