He went to Zimbabwe? Way to support an anti-American dictatorship. Talk about Socialism, Zimbabwe actually collectivised their farmland and expelled white landowners from their property.

I wonder what "Boss Mashumba" thinks about supporting that kind of Socialism?

"I've eaten everything that's in here," Rep. Broun told in 2010 (video below). "This lion came from Zimbabwe. After eating this animal, the natives called me Boss Mashumba, which means Boss Lion. They had never seen a guy come and actually eat a lion. It's not very good.".

This is altogether unsurprising from someone that thinks that Paul Ryan's ideas of budget axing is for big-government pinkos.  Well, at least according to his Op/Ed in the NYT this week.

BTW, I've eaten lion.  There used to be an exotic meat store somewhere in the midwest where you could get it.  My uncle bought some on a trip, and we tried it.  Can't remember what it tasted like.

As I sat huddled in my stand on a cold, stormy West Texas March night, I couldn't help but feel the apprehension of the impending fight. I knew those hogs were out there and there could be a lot of them. How many? Only time would tell how many would be in the sounder.. 3, 4, half a dozen? All I had to defend me and the land given to me by my dad was my trusty gun and a few 30 round mags. I thanked Jesus for allowing the 2nd Amendment and my ability to carry that many rounds. I beamed with pride knowing that Ted Nugent would approve and Michael Moore, who is fat, would disapprove. I've even give my gun a name, Dick after Dick "Dick" Cheney, the best Texas hunter of captive birds with clipped wings these lands have ever known. Without my Dick, who knows what would happen. But with it, I knew I was in control. I was the master. The top of the food chain is me. Yeah, they may fight back. They might rush me. But I was King. I was the Hog King and I am the law. Until you've fought the battles I've fought, you'll never know what it's like

I'm sure the Founding Fathers were thinking about hunting elephants and lions to eat.

Totally made-up fact: "Boss Mashumba" is niShona for "white dumbass who eats predator."

Because the Constitution starts LOOOOOONG before the Bill of Rights, because The First has far more to do with freedom than The Second, because no freedom has actually been lost*, or because Georgia Republican?

*CSB:
At lunch today, a libertarian coworker and I started talking guns. He's very pro-gun and anti-assault-weapon-ban, and once he dropped the "you'd never see them going after the other Amendments the way they go after the 2nd". I responded with "Free speech zones, indefinite detention, and warrantless wiretaps. We limit the Amendments - right or wrong - all over the damned place."

Why do I get the feeling that 'Boss Mashumba' is the natives version of the kanji word for 'life' that some Japanese tattoo artist puts on gaijin tourists?

Tell you what, I'll compromise:  You pay all the expenses, including the trophy fees, and I'll go do it with your choice of either a single-shot flintlock rifle, or a longbow.

Either one should be fair chase enough, considering the quarry.

Do you have to get government permission before you can exercise any of those rights?

Because if the ban on private transfers is enacted, that's the sort of limitation we're looking at for the Second Amendment. Sure, you've got the right.  Once you get our permission.

I almost guarantee you they say that to all the white tourists.

"It was the Second Amendment and hunting that started the process of my understanding what the Constitution is all about and what we have lost in the way of freedom. And I'm here to try to restore it."

It disturbs me when the ability to shoot something is the most important part of the Constitution to someone. Especially a representative.

Leviticus 11
The Lord said to Moses and Aaron, "Say to the Israelites: 'Of all the animals that live on land, these are the ones you may eat: You may eat any animal that has a divided hoof and that chews the cud.
"'There are some that only chew the cud or only have a divided hoof, but you must not eat them. The camel, though it chews the cud, does not have a divided hoof; it is ceremonially unclean for you. The hyrax, though it chews the cud, does not have a divided hoof; it is unclean for you. The rabbit, though it chews the cud, does not have a divided hoof; it is unclean for you. And the pig, though it has a divided hoof, does not chew the cud; it is unclean for you. You must not eat their meat or touch their carcasses; they are unclean for you.

I'll lay you good money that that is not what that means in the native dialect, I'm guessing idiomatically it means  something more like "asshole who can't get it up unless he strangles a kitten" personally...either that or it was being used mockingly
