We have occasional problems with bears in Canada, and SOP is if possible to shoot them with a tranquillizer gun and then take them outside of town and release them. They're usually marked with paint so the authorities know if the same bear has come back, and it if has they kill it as a problem bear.All I can think of is the Mall Chase in Blues Brothers,
"Lots of space in this Mall."
I assume Bear intrusions are not a rare thing and neither are bears hence the SOP is to shoot them.
That happens a lot these days of deep division between the two parties. It happened in Wisconsin a few years ago too, only it was Democratic state senators who had fled to Flatland (Illinois) to avoid voting on something the Republicans wanted to make law. In other words, normal jogging with these vile politicians of both parties who can't form a consensus on anything these days.A pox on both their houses.
You keep underestimating the Conservative Liberal divide. Climate change bills that hammer rural folks are not going to be popular when they are the ones who will really suffer.Holy Jeebuz.
It seems nobody in the western world is prepared to respect democracy any more.
"I don't wanna play so I am going to hide out in the woods". FFS.
I assume the Democrats won 18 out of 30 seats in one of those "election" thangs so presumably Oregonians have voted.
I don't underestimate it at all Jonesy. That was exactly my point. You missed it.
So lets look at Oregon. Assume 80% of Oregonians voted Dem and the CC stuff was part of their manifesto. (ignore the actual numbers - focus on the concept).
What do the 20% do if they don't like something? Lock'n'load and head for the hills? Seems legit for the Reps, who are denying their voters proper representation and who would be irrelevant if the dems had one more seat (might be 2 but I cant be arrsed looking).
What if 2% of the population don't like it and take to the hills tooled up to the max.
1% or less? WTF happens.
Where is the line between acceptance of democracy and rejecting it totally and going for "who has the most guns".
happened in Wisconsin in 2011 as well
London is considered to be the sixth largest "French" city....So imagine enough French expats moving into all of Southern England and voting to turn your country into an extension of theirs.
"What part of London is in France?"London is considered to be the sixth largest "French" city....
