Idaho has decided to let hunters, farmers, and ranchers cull or harvest a set number of wolves for a period of time. The reason I am writing about it is because recently, a wacko leftist group from the NE (Conn.) decided the best solution to the problem was to boycott Idaho potatoes. (Hahahahahaha, say what?) Are you people for real?
How is boycotting Idaho potatoes going to send a strong “protest” message? Seriously?
My suggestion for a more fitting and proper protest would be for anyone against the cull season on wolves to become human “shields”. I would seriously make a sweet donation for that. The downside and kicker to this form of protest is: 1) you have to be out there with the wolves, in advance of the hunters, and 2) if the hunters don’t kill you, the wolves surely will. Sure, call my idea dumb, but then again, think about the intelligence in the potato boycott. I think my suggestion has more weight, to be honest.
Any “Lefty” who hasn’t danced with wolves probably has no idea as to the scope and danger of having an over-population of wolves. Since their release in northern Idaho, on the Nez Perce reservation, wolf encroachment has seen an increasing number of elk killed for sport, lost pets, and attacks on humans on their own property. Ranchers and farmers are losing livestock. Lefties say, “Deal with it.” I say, grow a brain.
Wolves kill. They aren’t the cute cuddly things you see on wall art or photographs, up close. Up close, they tower over a 6 foot man, standing on their hind legs. Up close, 3 or 4 wolves will be nearby and involved in the hunt. Up close, you wouldn’t stand a chance against these predators. Grow a brain, lefties. If you can’t do that, then form a human shield. Surely the wolves will appreciate it, up close.

I love to play Runescape during my down time. It’s not that I couldn’t find better things to do, and I am just as certain many would tell me it’s a waste of time and for me to get a life. Yeah, ok, it’s just that I don’t consider myself a fanatical player. I could go months without playing it, yet still find my way back to it.
Some would even say that I don’t really love it all that much, and wonder why I am even posting about such a topic. He loves Runescape, but he doesn’t play it religiously, what gives? Sounds strange, and yet here he is posting about it. <Insert head scratch here>
I must confess - Runescape offers me the opportunity of being anonymous while permitting me to be as obnoxious as I wish (within reason). God forbid I get my account banned and trashcan my playing field of guilty pleasures. A certain level of euphoria is involved in turning the tide against what I consider to be EVIL players. Then there are the idiot players and all their talk of “my main” has this, “my main” has that. My main is all there is and I don’t need another.
Is it wrong for me to take satisfaction in making another player miserable? Isn’t that a stepping stone to learning things in life, to learn from your own mistakes? I trade everyday cares in at the RS door and inherit an odd, but unique sense of relaxation and calm as I set out to pulverize as many as I can, not just graphically, but also verbally. My mother would definitely find me a brute and bastard if she crossed my path in Runescape.
In the end, when the slaying and mouthing is over and the exit button is clicked, a transformation takes place. Moral ambiguity is no more, and my seemingly rightful place at the throne of empathy is restored. If only I could click this same mechanism off and on at will, in more pressing circumstances in my life, the duck’s back would surely be conquered. For now, Runescape offers me this guilty delight, without my conscience being so objective.
For all the Shermans of the world, Runescape is the magical chemistry concoction that allows me to be Buddy Love, even if for a little while, without care or concern.
Maybe I should files this under “Odd Stuff” just to be fair to the naysayers of the world.
