When ever a politician picks up a gun, I am concernd.
Candidates posing in Duck blinds, Vice Presidents shooting their staff in the head, Bush allowing the "assault weapons ban" sunset, .........well that tool they either admire, like myself , or despise and wish to take away from you and I.....well that IS important, because in this great land, we have no "Right" in the Constitution to hunt, simply the Right to Bear Arms.
In a Hunting forum thread, Sara Palin was the topic, and her use of Firearms was commented apon along with opinions on her as well. Nothin' wrong with that, for SURE..
If Political Correctness is picking up a turd from the clean end, then all politicians are Turds in my view, and are open to discussion, disgust, and disregard as needed........even disemboweling if it wold keep 'em honest (someday )
Im no "Tea Party" type, but I do give Kudo's to Sara Palin, the First Woman Politician who, on TV has shown the masses a legitimate use of a firearm without agenda or pulling up fake stats to 'prove' we cant be trusted , or someone getting shot in the process. Hillary made apassing comment (actually a Lie, 'cause the politician spoke) about Duck hunting, but Im sure it was beyond her control, if it ever happend at all.....
Hey, if a Politician wants to hunt and shoot on TV, Im all for it, but there ARE Public people, and personal comments do go with opinions on how Polit's hunt and use their firearms, 'cause were dealing with Snakes of sorts here, and as in any arena, actions speak louder than words..........Go Sara, Go!..... whatever your evil political agenda may be
I will defend, to the Death, her Right to Bear Arms.....I will defend her hunting, it is "Alaska" for what thats worth....I am impressed, but I aint voting for her either......
Its a Free Country, and I reserve my Right to Be Politically Incorrect
And then theres this, an excellent poem , by Eskimo Unkown......
I think over again my small adventures, My fears, Those small ones that seemed so big, For all the vital things I had to get and to reach; And yet there is only one great thing, The only thing, To live to see the great day that dawns And the light that fills the world.

That was just too cool not to post........
Getting Ink done.....
Then , too , the wife has been at it, with a Ribbon Seal.
Hi, I'm Chip, and I'm a Subsistence Hunter in Arctic Alaska.
Together with my wife Agnes, and our kids, we hunt, fish and gather all year round. Here on Kobuk River, the majority of households still practice traditional hunting methods with modern means to supplement or make their living. We are modern hunters, fisher's and gatherers. We make our living in the most healthy manner we can, with lots of natural foods, clean air, and lots of Work. Besides eating our catch, we utilize the entire animal as best we can...skins, teeth and bones as well as gathered materials to make arts and crafts for money, 'cause we have bills too.~~LOL!!~~.
Seasonally there are high paying but short term jobs, like firefighting, construction or jobs that require that you live onsight that many work at, but still return to the land and its opportunitys.
We move about seasonally,when we can, but no matter where we are,we do our best utilizing the resources of this great land and ocean of ours. Read and see what we do to make ends meet and have a good time. There's a lot of us working together and there's lots to see.
