Consider the source. The author of the editorial, the publisher of the editorial, and the paper that published the supposedly leaked email. All lean considerably to the left, oppose predator control under any circumstance, and probably wouldn't suffer any heartburn if all hunting were done away with.
An email of a lobbyist lobbying turns into a tireade against the Governor and the Oil companies.
What is his point?
There is a faster way off the mountain, might hurt a little though.
Every lobbyist group uses the "threat" of it's voting member base to get their way. The govt is supposed to do what the people want and if they don't then the no doubt will be voted out. Arno simply promised that the legislators vote in this issue wouldn't be forgotten come November.
The author has strong beliefs and is passionate about them... No matter how wrong they are!
I'm trying to figure out why they would concider this a "Leaked e-mail"
By now everybody should know that anything you type on a computer nowdays will be seen by somebody.
ADN may be better company than liars and poachers; Ideology notwithstanding. How about a nominee with a moral compass that points somewhat north?
I have a hard time believing that some anti-wolf/bear hunting organization(s) didn't write the opposite letters to their representatives saying if they approved keogh there would be repercussions. Obviously there was enough letters/phone calls submitted from the other side to legislators that they decided it best not to confirm him.
Say what you want, ADN is anti-wolf hunting and I think they would be fine if there was no brown bear hunting, and anti-BOG. So anything that comes out to support their views they will publish.
O.K. you all know i'm passionate about the wildlife here in the interior,
and some call me a anti, even tho I grew up on wild meat.
Even I can see the change in the laws, ( not the sharpist blade in the kicthen ) But I do have reservations about the people that are getting these positions. ( heck I know what motor I'm running, and if that person, the accused was not sure of this I guess I would be more quallifed than he is.)
So maybe you all should think about all the experiance that you have and leave the poltics out of it, lol .
But I have to agree that the OP was right that the state is trying to make the state a farm, at least the interior and there are alot of people that are jumping on the band wagon.
For one person on here and you know who I mean check out the headliner in the lefthand box of the www.deltanewsweb.com sorry about that, they took that out of the box sometime today, but its in there somewhere. ( the topic was how the A.C. was going to discuss the 20A discission, THAT WILL BE THE MAIN TOPIC of the meeting.) You know what I'm talking about.
The whole thing resonates of people that are on a one sided venue.
