    Isn't It Ironic? The food stamp program, part of the Department of
    Agriculture, is pleased to be distributing the greatest amount of food
    stamps ever.

    Meanwhile, the Park Service, also within of the Department of
    Agriculture, asks us to "please do not feed the animals" because the
    animals may grow dependent and not learn to take care of themselves

    So what are you saying, you want people to go out in the woods and forage for food?

    I must question why that is the ONLY option there is in your eyes.
    Do you conmsider those on food stamps unable to come up with better ideas than foraging for food?

    My son asked for more spending money while in college....just last week. I told him to find a better way to come up with the money.

    By Yesterday he had three choices.....all were paying $12 an hour and offering him as many hours as he wanted.

    Amazing how humans can be creative and make things happen when their sugar daddy says "no".

    Figuratively.... yes






    Now do I want truly destitute people to go w/o food... NO.

    Some 'animals' need care... they are physically unable to feed themselves.
    Then again, look into the new HC bill and they should be given a pill so they can die off quicker. :eusa_whistle:

    Speaking of ironic...

    The President claimed, at his nomination, that this would be “the moment when the rise of the oceans would begin to slow and our planet begin to heal.”
    Barack Obama’s victory speech, June 3, 2008

    But he can't slow the rise of gas prices....

    More precisely, the Gator / Grisly may decide to take care of who did not feed him the next time around ... or the next guy coming up the trail.

    Wild animals will find a way to eat one way or another. Usually to the detriment of another animal.

    Or even one of us if we're in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    The Park Service is part of the Dept. of the Interior. Who knows how much fallacious information you've been posting. Do you even have a son? :eek:
