1. More on this from the Washington Post

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/in-the-loop/wp/2015/03/05/rep-don-young-wolves-would-solve-homelessness/

Alaska Republican Rep. Don Young, famous for his salty tongue and brusque demeanor, suggested Thursday that if he let loose wolves in some congressional districts, they “wouldn’t have a homeless problem anymore.”

The strange comment was made during a halting five-minute exchange with Interior Secretary Sally Jewell during a House Natural Resources Committee hearing on her agency’s budget. He accused her and her department of making decisions without consulting the states they’d affect.

Young, who supports taking gray wolves off the endangered species list, mocked a letter 79 members of Congress sent urging Jewell to protect the gray wolf population. (In Alaska, for what it’s worth, you can hunt wolves.)

“How many of you have got wolves in your district?” he asked. “None. None. Not one.”

13. Hate Crime? Terrorism?

None of those laws come into effect when the rich speak about the poor.

9. My thoughts exactly, maybe we could put some seasoning on the TP members to make them more

attractive to the wolves.

6. One would think this asshole would really love wolves, if that was the case.

Considering how much he and his ilk despise the homeless and poor people. What a sack of excrement.

7. if he is so fucking smart, i saw we do it.

Where does he live? let's let loose a bunch of wolves in his home town and after they kill everyone's pets and a few people too I'm sure, we can ask him if he is really as smart as he thinks.

put your money where your mouth is you coward.

8. Young's words about environmentalists.

Environmentalists are a socialist group of individuals that are the tool of the Democrat Party. I'm proud to say that they are my enemy. They are not Americans, never have been Americans, never will be Americans.
