Politics Nothing goes with politics quite like crying and complaining, and we're a perfect example of that.

I can do this too: "Boy if you only knew HALF the things that Mickey Mouse did, you'd demand he be locked up. Do you really want me to even BEGIN to list the atrocities committed by Mickey Mouse? I mean, its astonishing that with everything Mickey Mouse has done wrong, he hasn't been burned at the stake! I could write a volume of books on the evil deeds of Mickey Mouse!"

Don't hold your breath for him to produce anything he can't google from some leftist website which obviously will be more of the same leftist nonsense.

The list of treasonable and unlawful acts by D.J. Trump...would be soooo' long...that would require many written pages of the truth.
Schiff, the media, and most of the beltway are still searching for the first sentence in that book.
When this is all said and done, Trump will be shown to have the cleanest nose in Washington.

Doesn't sound like he's even willing to do that much. Maybe if someone were to make the same baseless accusations against Trump in Pig Latin, they would be more shocking, demanding 24/7 coverage from CNN.

Hey Brother, I hate to disagree. But, in all likelihood this impeachment will fall close to party lines. It maybe be a shame and it may not be. Americans knew perfectly well who Donald Trump was and they elected him despite the best efforts of both parties, and the media. So, we are the ones who made this bed and now we get to lay in it awhile.

To expand a little on the Republican take over by "the common folk". The dems are feeling pressure from their base to press their case. I'm not saying it isn't a good case. But the timing might be bad for their campaigns. They have a chance to increase their numbers in both the house and the senate because a lot of "common folk" do not want to be the country that strong arms. (Gunboat diplomacy and extortion are two very different things.) They have built a case around what do the Americans see themselves as. You here the crazy talk about us becoming socialist because the GOP is very worried. The people who voted Trump in should be worried as well. The work he has done on trade imbalances, and making NATO members pay their fair share will be gone. Believe me neither party has an interest in these things.

I certainly hope so. I joined the last hunting forum as a hunting newbie, hoping to make use of the expertise of other hunters who, as a group, love to talk and love to share their experience and knowledge.

What I found instead was prick-waving ("Real hunters can kill grizzlies from 500 yards with a mean look", "I never shoot a buck with fewer than 14 points", "My rifle groups 0.001 MOA consistently") and a complete intolerance for anything that deviates from their narrow view of what hunting should be ("Real hunting means using bullets below 150 grain, unless it's Tuesday and you're hunting antelope"). No room for alternate opinions. Berating for anybody who dared show hunting inexperience.

If this thread is any guide, HuntingNet is far more engaging and tolerant. This thread would have certainly been shut down elsewhere.

For starters:

How does D.J. Trump's treasonable act of quid pro quo with the Ukrainian leadership sound?

If you want me to give you all the pertaining data I know on this treasonable act of just one of many of Trump's debacles...I would have to make numerous posts at least 20 pages long on this thread.

So that is the best you have, you are just like the rest of the dumbocrats, you had nothing . You would not know treason if 1,000 lbs of it fell on your head. You are just making yourself sound sillier than usual, and worse.

Welcome aboard!! You'll find an interesting and at times fascinating mixture of members here. Many of them are extremely knowledgeable about a lot of things and quite a few are on a Mensa level or not far from it. The experience levels are off the hook at times. Sometimes I feel like if I knew half of the stuff some of these guys know, I would be really smart.

On the hunting side, we have a retired Game Warden or 2, some hunting guides & outfitters, long range shooters and hunters and some people who have been hunting for as many as 50 years+. We have guys who have gone on numerous safaris around the world and other guys who know their home turf hunting area even better than some of the bucks do. If you're interested in hunting a critter in whatever state (or even in a lot of countries), chances are somebody on here has already done it and can give you some feedback. Some get crotchety about sharing knowledge but wait a few and the rest will chime in with knowledge and experience that will amaze you at times. It's better than some video because it's not edited to look good and better than a book or lecture because you can ask them a lot of questions and learn a lot that would otherwise take you years of hunting and learning by experience and mistakes. Most of them would probably laugh at the people making the statements in your middle paragraph above.

On the tolerance side, we try. It has had it's ups and downs and isn't always 100% consistent but pretty much all of the mods will talk with you about stuff in PMs (Private Messages). As long as what you're posting is within the rules, it's pretty much fair game. If you post something that violates the rules, most of us try to edit out just the part that violated the rules and leave the rest of your post so you're still in the discussion. If the violations continue, we give timeouts. Sometimes we're accused of giving too many timeouts (temp bans) instead of just permabanning someone but a permaban (permanent ban) really is a last resort that we try to avoid. It's kind of like most of us probably have some crazy relative that we don't exchange Christmas cards with but still see at holiday dinners with the family. You know they're not going to stop what they do but they're still family.

At any rate, welcome again. I think you'll fit right in around here.

How does it sound? It sounds like the forest floor deposits hunters use to identify what deer have been eating. The only concrete evidence is a transcript that indicates completely legal activity. If that's all you have, Trump is very safe.
