Nonhunters Forced To Pay Taxes For Cheney's Animal Stalking Trips
14 Feb 2006
the poor and the 96% of the country
who are nonhunters are taxed to pay
for the tens of millions of dollars spent
on security for Cheney's hunting trips
Cheney's Animal Stalking Paid For By Nonhunters

The ranch on which Cheney was hunting when he shot a fellow
hunter was 'owned' by Anne Armstrong, 50,000 acres
worth. Insensitive unelected Republicans had made her ambassador
to the UK, which is one of the 5 most organized animal rights countries in the world.

"Her" ranch is near the infamous King ranch owned by the Kleburg

There are at least 500 ranches in Texas devoted to canned hunts
.. where rich trophy seekers blast away at animals trapped
and huddling in terror inside fences

The poor are forced to pay taxes for these trips...each of which
costs millions of dollars There is always an ambulance on call.
Public employees are paid with tax money to degut and vacuum
pack the murdered birds for Air Force Two.

Cheney has stalked animals with trips in Maryland, Pennsylvania,
S Dakota, Texas, Louisiana and other places which are often
unpublicized a. because Cheney likes secrecy
in his illegal conducting of the US government and b.
because hunting is more and more unpopular in the US, with less than 4%
involved in psychopathic stalking of animals, the worst form of which is
canned hunts. Cheney has participated in quail canned hunts with
cageraised birds released from nets directly in front of hunters
(as happened in Rolling Rock PA at which shooting party
Senator Cornyn of Texas participated. 400 birds were murdered in 1 day.)

This does not include the tens of millions of animals bombed along with innocent humans by Cheney-Chertoff and Bush 1 and 2.

The macho culture of murdering animals is related
to the macho culture of the military.

The man who had been shot, Harry Whittington, was at one time on a Texas
prison board... perhaps one of those rubber stamps for
the death machine execution chambers
of Huntsville Texas.

Norman Schwarzkopf's award from the Safari Club was
related to his having killed 300 KINDS of animals.

Cheney has conspired to break
the law with fellow scofflaw Antonin
Scalia, like Alito a member of Opus
Dei, a group which desecrates
the life of Christ by using Jesus' name
to justify their militaristic and sexist

The Associated Press
WASHINGTON (AP) ― Vice President Dick Cheney accidentally shot and wounded a companion during a weekend quail hunting trip in Texas, spraying the fellow hunter in the face and chest with shotgun pellets.

Harry Whittington, a millionaire attorney from Austin, was "alert and doing fine" in a Corpus Christi hospital Sunday after he was shot by Cheney on a ranch in south Texas, said Katharine Armstrong, the property's owner.

(like Peter Benchley, author of Jaws,
Scully left the world of writing
speeches for warmongers who
became president through

Hawaii Telegraph: Mr Cheney, an experienced hunter, did not have the correct licence for shooting quail, lacking a stamp for shooting upland game birds. He has only received a warning from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department over the missing stamp

Bush was informed of the accident about one hour after it occurred,

I hunt, but I don't have children in public school, or recieve any other government assistance, so if we go by this logic, the percentage of my income that goes to taxes, should be considerbly less than those who do.

Seriously! I'd bet that at least 99% of us pay to support something we don't agree with through taxation. That's pretty fucked up, when you think about it -- I mean, we're all forced to support things we really don't support!

There's got to be a better way.

I'm insulted that I have to pay for Cheney's hunting trips. I'm also insulted that I have to pay for bastard children. I'm also insulted that I have to pay for some lazy SOB who doesn't want to work. I'm also insulted that I have to pay for murderers to live their lives out in prison. I'm also insulted that I have to pay for forced busing. I'm insulted that I have to pay the medical bills of criminal aliens. I'm insulted that I have to pay taxes when a certain elected official refuses to pay taxes or student loans. I'm insulted that certain rich idiots want to use tax money so that illegal aliens can receive in state tuition.
