  1. Jon Way says:

    They would rather get rid of health insurance for humans in order to have this entranced bureaucracy continue…

  2. Mike says:

    Let’s hope they cut the whole thing.

  3. Daniel Berg says:

    When it comes to budget cuts, a large number of people agree with them in principle, but almost no one supports them if they are to be directly affected.

    Fiscal conservative is a relative term.

  4. Ovis says:

    USDA Wildlife Services does help control feral pigs and unnatural wild boar.

    It would be nice if we could cut out their killing of native animals while they continue go after these pests.

  5. william huard says:

    The sheep industry is the worst, always sniveling about going out of business because of predators. They are notorious for telling stories too. Either change your husbandry practices or shut the FU^% up. No more taxpayer funded goons killing our wildlife

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."
