A Disturbing Trend That Is Beginning To Affect U.S. Wildlife

The photo below captures a disturbing trend that is beginning to affect wildlife in the US.  Animals that were formerly self-sufficient are now showing signs of belonging to the Democrat Party, as they have apparently learned to just sit and wait for the government to step in and provide for their care and sustenance.


This was sent to me via email.  It was so good that I had to share it with you.

    I guess if it was a fat cat eating from the government feedbag it would be the rich people and the corporate bigwigs that the republicans throw money at…Or a dead soldier symbolizing all the dead soldiers that Bush sent to die in a war based on lies…You call yourself Christians? Do you really think denying money to kids without health insurance and seniors makes them more sefl sufficent? What is wrong with you?

    Dead soldiers, uninsured children and senior citizens, Bush lies, corporate bigwigs……

    You did a nice job bringing in several of your democratic hot button issues. Now I have a question for you: What have the democrats done to solve any of these problems. They prefer to only point out problems instead of actually solving them. When they do actually propose a solution (which is rare) they only make the situation worse.

    Also, do you really think that punishing the successful in our society by taking away the profits from their hard work and giving it to people who are too lazy or too unmotivated to work will solve any problems? This will never solve anything.

    Why do you think that it should be the government’s responsibility to solve all the problems that people have. The Constitution does not say it is the governments job to do this. So, where does this mistaken understanding come from?


  3. jim lovell says:

    Are you saying Jesus would not help kids without insurance or seniors live with dignity? Have you ever read the Bible? If you want to talk legally, instead of morally, Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution gives Congress the right to levy taxes to, among other things, provide for the common defense and the general welfare…If Congress has the right to fund the military, it has the right to help uninsured kids have health care, and seniors not have to choose between paying their drug bill and paying their electric bill. What does doing that have to do with giving money to people too lazy to work? You sound way too greedy and selfish to be someone who calls himself a Christian.


  4. Robert says:

    Mr. Lovell,

    What you are describing is socialism, plain & simple. Yes, I agree that Jesus would have taken care of the truely needy people. No problem with that whatsoever. I also believe that failure for them to properly plan (older people and parents who won’t properly provide for their children) does not constitute an emergency on my part. You talk about “provide for the general welfare”. Well, giving people handouts hardly contributes to their actual welfare. It only encourages further mooching off the working people and a perpetuation of a broken system.
    Tom doesn’t need anyone to stand up for him, but you call him greedy & selfish. Ha! I know Tom & he’s anything but that.


  5. Tom says:


    You said: “Are you saying Jesus would not help kids without insurance or seniors live with dignity?

    Don’t be ridiculous. That is not what I am saying at all. Christians are called to meet the physical needs of those who are suffering. The government is not called to do that. When the government tries to do that we get what we now have. The more the government tries to do, the more problems we have. If the government would stick to the powers it has been granted in the Constitution we would be much better off. Unfortunately, we have people who believe the Constitution is a “living document” and they then try to read into it whatever they want it to mean.

    As far as Article 1 Section 8, it says:

    The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;

    To borrow Money on the credit of the United States;

    To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes;

    To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization, and uniform Laws on the subject of Bankruptcies throughout the United States;

    To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures;

    To provide for the Punishment of counterfeiting the Securities and current Coin of the United States;

    To establish Post Offices and post Roads;

    To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries;

    To constitute Tribunals inferior to the supreme Court;

    To define and punish Piracies and Felonies committed on the high Seas, and Offences against the Law of Nations;

    To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water;

    To raise and support Armies, but no Appropriation of Money to that Use shall be for a longer Term than two Years;

    To provide and maintain a Navy;

    To make Rules for the Government and Regulation of the land and naval Forces;

    To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions;

    To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the Militia, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States, reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress;

    To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of particular States, and the Acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of the United States, and to exercise like Authority over all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings;–And

    To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof.

    Please explain what meaning you place on the “general welfare” clause. It seems that you saying it should apply to social programs but the context of Article 1, Section 8 does not lend itself to that meaning.

    Our government can only function and survive as long as we are a “moral” people. It is my contention to you that we are no longer a “moral” people. It is only a matter of time until it fails unless we bring it back into line with its original functions. If we could remove the government from our daily lives, then most (if not all) of our problems would be solved by our people.

    My challenge to you is to stop expecting the government to be the one who solves all the problems. Cut them out of the loop and find local solutions. We should all be doing that on a daily basis. God help us to do so!

    to robert,
    no, i do not think that is exactly the definition of socialism. Socialism refers to a broad set of economic theories of social organization advocating state or collective ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods. Mr. Lovell was talking about programs that would help those people who are less fortunate, not everyone in the society. The socialist practice of “distribution of goods” is an idea that incorporates the ENTIRE society. Please do not akin the belief of progressivism to socialistic beliefs, it is much further to the left of the political spectrum than the Democrats fall, just as fascism is much futher to the right than the Republicans are.

    As to Tom who said that the Democrats havnt been doing anything in the way of solving problems, I might point out that its been slightly difficult to get anything passed with a Repbublican majority for most of the 90s up until the 06 midterms, and then with a Republican President for the remaining two years who refuses to listen to Congress.

    I honestly dont remember this many problems in the Clinton administration about the economny, so as far as getting anything done, I think he set a wonderful tone.

    Are you sure the bear isn’t suicidal and just waiting for Palin to come shoot him or legislate him out of existence?


  8. Doug says:

    I searched the Bible for “Poverty” and “Poor”. It came up with quite a bit less than 2000 verses and think that is a bit hyperbolic. I did not come across anything that suggested that “let’s spread the wealth around” through taxation and political redistribution. Both of these are enforced through the threat of jail time and ultimately by the gun in the hands of our fine police officers coming to take you away if you just happen to believe “what is yours is yours and what is mine is mine”. Personally, I am unapologetic about believing that. The verses that I reviewed suggested that it was noble to voluntarily share your excess with those of less fortune. Also, many of the verses that I reviewed suggested that poverty would be the result of irresponsibility.

    I also happened to look up two other verses that are never mentioned by thinkers of this ilk.
    Deuteronomy 5
    19 “You shall not steal.
    21 “You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife. You shall not set your desire on your neighbor’s house or land, his manservant or maidservant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”

    I am fed up with the guilt generators appealing to base emotions to gain political power. The New Testament is filled with warnings against legalism while these political whores distort the Bible. They insinuate that Jesus wants us to make more laws to “let’s spread the wealth around”. Spreading the wealth is noble. But, it is your responsibility and is my responsibility out of the volition of our “new birth”. Paul hated legalism and implied that Jesus did too.

    I have previously referenced the idea of political lust. Look at the last verse that my search provided. I do not understand this. Can someone help?
