Do they make camoflauged hoverrounds?
 
2013-10-08 12:36:46 PM
It's almost like actions have consequences or something.  Too bad most tea partiers aren't cognitively capable of connecting cause to effect.
 
2013-10-08 12:37:17 PM
When you shut down the government, it means something.
 
2013-10-08 12:37:46 PM
What, did they think closing down the federal government wouldn't affect everybody in one way or another?

I would imagine more than a few members of congress had hunting trips planned in the next month or so. Oh well. They can count themselves lucky not to be starving.
 
2013-10-08 12:38:56 PM
Is there any way we can just shut the government down for the poors!?
 
2013-10-08 12:39:41 PM
I don't understand why the federal government would have control over this. I thought hunting/fishing licenses were issued at the state level.

No but the user can wear a camo muumuu.  It's like a poncho but think rainy baseball diamond...yeah about that size.

The only way anyone will understand the gravity of the situation is if everyone bleeds. For too long people have been content with gutting or destroying things they don't see themselves as needing or wanting. As a result, if they don't feel pain then it is not a problem, who cares if it causes others pain, they are morally inferior otherwise they would not feel the pain.

Actions have consequences, and it is time for everyone to bleed.

Tea Partiers don't actually hate government. They are told to hate the word government.

Take away golf. I'd love to see the backlash from that.

Totally not the usual culture war and tribalism, I swear.

So many AR-15's will go unused. Or not.

But Teapartiers live off  that venison!

Fartbongo bin Muslin al Hadj is starvin mah people!

But would "no hunting season" mean that they could hunt whenever and whatever they want?

FarkedOver: Is there any way we can just shut the government down for the poors!?


Thats what they thought they were doing.
Why do you think the only things they are whining about are monuments, hunting season, etc.

CarnySaur: But would "no hunting season" mean that they could hunt whenever and whatever they want?


Can we hunt the poors yet?

DNRTFA, didya?

My favorite beach, Padre Island National Seashore, is closed at the height of the Fall redfish run.
Fark you, ya damn teatards.

RWers not thinking their cunning plans through?  Must be a day that ends in "y".

I think my favorite part of the shutdown so far has been Michele Bachmann saying she got exactly what she wanted, and then like a day later she's yelling at a park ranger asking why people can't get into a national monument.

That still won't help the Teabaggers.

Teabaggers are just down on their luck millionaires.  They'll be rich before you know it.
 
2013-10-08 12:44:52 PM
Yeah, only teabaggers hunt and fish.

Nowhere in that article mentions teabaggers.

I just saw about 20 black guys fishing this past weekend.  I'm sure they're teabaggers, too.  Stupidassed troll headlines and the retards who greenlight them.
 
2013-10-08 12:45:49 PM
Hunting and fishing licenses are just wasteful Big Government in action.
 
2013-10-08 12:45:52 PM
See, this is why Obama should agree to the GOP's piecemeal attempts to pass funding for things that the tea partiers like.  So they don't have to suffer any bad effects but everyone else does.

"Freedom" is not having to pay for the government, while enjoying the benefits of government.That sums up the tea party's world view pretty well.
 
2013-10-08 12:46:25 PM
This should fix that ammo shortage problem.

I thought the tea party was a multiracial, diverse group of people?

If only there was some sort of convenient news link to click on to get the answers to that question...

You're obviously unaware that there are some stereotypes that are politically correct.  Don't worry, this is the good kind of bigotry.
 
2013-10-08 12:47:40 PM
Is there anyone to enforce hunting season?

If you hunt who's going to stop you?
 
2013-10-08 12:47:52 PM
I bet the NRA is happy about this shutdown, right?  RIGHT?

It's like she doesn't have a clue about how the Government she works for actually works

/I'll be happy to see her gone at the end of her term

This just goes to prove that the federal goverment is too big and intrusive in are lives - they shouldn't be involved in hunting and fisting in the first place.
 
2013-10-08 12:49:37 PM
How the hell did people shoot deer and catch fish before the government was around?

Teabaggers aren't the only ones who hunt and fish, but they were the only ones cheering FOR a government shutdown.

Yeah, when the government wasn't involved in hunting and fishing, we totally didn't almost wipe out the Buffalo.

Because these people and the people that were applauding the shutdown didn't think that the federal government had any bearing on their lives accept for making their lives miserable. Now that they found out that their childish beliefs are wrong, and shutting down the government has a direct affect on things they need and things they like to do they are regretting their own decisions in the most childish way possible, by putting the blame on somebody else.

Almost to extinction.

Jesus Christ people, don't you understand your own history?

I don't know if that was intentional or not, but I lol'ed.

Or maybe you both just totally missed the point.

Hint: It's not about hunting or fishing

And now that government is making their lives miserable, they'll know better!

FTFA:  call on Congress to end the shutdown, which has closed 329 federal wildlife refuges to hunting

This is obviously some new definition of the word "refuge" with which I was not previously acquainted. "Welcome to our sanctuary here, cute little bunny and majestic elk. Make yourself at home in this place of refuge. Comfy? Good."

BLAM!!!

Sure.....

There's white, ecru, mother-of-pearl, taupe, ivory, cream, vanilla...

Those are all different kinds of white.
