    Well, I guess it could be a mass conspiracy to “carry water for the chosen one.” But, The American Presidential Project is non-partisan, and archives the press releases and Presidential papers of all Presidents. So, why would they alter the date?

    Perhaps the Business Insider backdated their article to cover up Obama’s untimely response. But, they posted the article to the internet 15 hours ago, which means it would have been posted yesterday, the 27th. So, that would mean the entire internet is covering for Obama. Now, that’s what I call a conspiracy theory!

    I don't know who made the first statement, but does it really matter if Bush made a statement first, or if Obama made a statement first?

The majority of todays generals don't even hunt, which is unto itself. Needless to say the club has lost nearly all access to the fort that they used to enjoy.


    Our society does not mold them in the manner Stormin Norman was molded. RIP
    As hunters, we are a dying breed. That is unfortunate!
