Snow day? Go hunting!

Recent snow and ice in Mississippi have caused headaches for many across the state this week, but for two brothers from Batesville, the icy accumulation turned into pure gold.

"I was actually working yesterday morning (Tuesday) and they called and said they were out of school, again," Marcus Christon said. "So, I went home and surprised them and took them hunting."

Christon said he and his two sons, M.J., 11, and Tyler, 10, decided to hunt from a box stand with a heater inside, but conditions were still frigid.

6. Is there a forum more appropriate for this..."Outdoor Death" perhaps?

Or should this be posted under Gun Control? I thought this was a joke at first then realized it was serious and I feel disgusted and sick now.

7. Would you rather the kids eat

chemically laden beef that was killed by someone else in a barbaric manner? Unless you are a vegan, you are just as responsible for animal death. The only difference is that you pay someone else to do your killing for you.

8. Murder is a legal concept that doesn't fit here,

just like the anti-abortion folks calling abortion "murder". Are you a vegan or vegetarian? If not, you are responsible for the "murder" of cows, pigs, etc. The difference is that those animals exist and die in the barbaric factory farm system. Paying for someone else to kill your food for you doesn't make one more civilized.

9. Being an absolutist is as bad as being a one issue voter

During the last year the pro-life folks that I know have changed and now unanimously oppose trump regardless of that issue. For them to vote for him in 2020, his opponent would have to support post-birth abortion up to 5 years old. (Assuming he makes it to 2020.)


RE: Paying for someone else to kill...for you doesn't make one more civilized.
Now you're just referring to certain towns with police departments.

12. I think mostly it was a perfect storm

A conjunction of ongoing insults, plans to cut benefits for SS & medicare/aid and the precipitous health insurance premium increases of this year.
