The deer hunting season opens Saturday, and I wish the hunters good luck and hope they’ll be safe.
As a tribute to the men and women in bright orange, I bring you the words of the man who says it better than anyone else when it comes to hunting: Ted Nugent.
“For more than 20 years now, some great hunting families — including ours — have stalked, ambushed, killed, gutted, hugged, dragged, skinned, hung, butchered, marinated, cooked up, seasoned, celebrated and served up more than 250 million perfect, hot, pure, yummy, high-protein meals of sacred venison to our fellow Americans in need.
That's right: 250 million, again, from another annual, perfect, natural season of harvest.
With our magnanimous Hunters for the Hungry, Sportsmen Against Hunger and the Hunters and Farmers Feeding the Hungry programs, we have delivered the finest, healthiest rocket fuel for the mind, body, heart, spirit and soul to homeless shelters and soup kitchens across the land.
Most importantly, it's happened without the guaranteed ineptitude and waste of government bureaucrats meddling with a simple neighborly deed.
Hallelujah and pass the garlic-and-butter BBQ sauce, baby. God bless American hunters, the best Americans there are.”
Here’s Nugent’s entire column.
That would be 608-266-5400...
And you get the Voice of the Angels, Wautoma High School graduate Tricia Sieg on the other end of the line....
After she says:
“Good morning/afternoon, this is State Senator Mary Lazich’s office, how may I help you?”
Don’t be a fuddy duddy. If you want to be cool, say:
"WAUTOMA IS THE CHAMPION!"
BIG FOOT 0
Wautoma wins the Division 4 state football title!
Congratulations Wautoma and Tricia!
Here are the topics the panel discusses Friday night on InterCHANGE at 6:30 on Milwaukee Public Television Channel 10 with a repeat on Sunday morning at 11:00:
1 – AUTOMAKER BAILOUT & THE ECONOMY.
Every day it seems like there’s more bad economic news. Should we bail out the auto industry or is that simply delaying the inevitable? Stocks across the board continue to fall, retirement accounts lose value, health care costs rise, more layoffs are looming, etc. The state faces a huge budget shortfall. Have we bottomed out yet? Is this the worst economic time of our lives? Have any of us really ever experience a tough national economy? Will an Obama presidency change anything? Is a real depression out of the question? Do these bad economic times really have much of an effect on the average American? Are you driving less? Eating less? Going out to dinner less? Or, is this the result of a country that just got too fat and spoiled?
2 – MILWAUKEE CHILD DEATH & MOM GUN PLAYGROUND FIGHT.
Three teens are shot after a mother gives her kid the gun to do the shooting with. A 1-year-old boy is beaten to death by his foster mother, and then a fight breaks out at the funeral. Two more examples of an incredibly dysfunctional poor Milwaukee African-America community, or two more examples of how the system has again failed to protect the most vulnerable among us?
3 – HILLARY.
Would Hillary Clinton make a good secretary of state? Why would Obama pick her? Why would she take the job?
The New York Yankees are prepared to throw everything they've got at the Brewer pitcher. Now San Francisco enters the picture. The City by the Bay is where CC really wants to play.
The Brewers gambled on Sabathia last season, and lost.
