It seemed appropriate to go with this topic for today’s post in light of the fact that our 2nd Amendment is under attack by clueless liberals who do not even bother to understand the intent of our Founding Fathers before pushing their own ridiculous agendas. The right to BEAR arms is not about how many bullets it takes to kill a deer (I am especially intrigued by the congressman – talking to you Franken – who give this asinine argument for why we only need 7 bullet magazines) The 2nd Amendment isn’t about hunting and it isn’t about sport and if you think it is then you are not qualified to be setting policy. Want something to think about? Consider what these pro-gun control advocates would do if their precious 1st Amendment was under scrutiny.
On a much lighter note… Hey look at the cute bear pictures!
Yes, we are once again back at the Indianapolis Zoo. Unlike the elephant, this time we bring you a true carnivore – in fact one of the top carnivores in the animal kingdom food chain. Okay, if we are splitting hairs they are technically omnivores, but I doubt they go around commenting on how much they prefer berries to the taste of raw meat and fish. I’ve had the privilege of seeing these creatures in the wild and it is quite breathtaking (link here). They exude a true sense of power as they lumber along that commands a high degree of respect. I felt a little remorse watching it simply pace back and forth within its exhibit knowing their brothers were enjoying freedom in one of or Nation’s most beautiful parks – one must admit we have come a long way in our treatment of animals in captivity and clearly this one was not outwardly suffering. I am not a bear psychologist but guessing there is a call to the wild buried deep in there somewhere. My utmost appreciation for letting us experience what it is like to be around one but out of harm’s way. You will never catch me this close to one out in Yellowstone!
