    Arent you glad the US government is so generous?

    From the latest SCI news letter:

    Taxpayer Millions Paid To Anti-Hunting Organizations: æ³¥ocuments provided by the U.S. Department of Justice to the House Natural Resources Committee show that our federal government is giving millions of taxpayer dollars to anti-hunting organizations. Anti-hunting groups like the Center for Biological Diversity, the Humane Society of the United States, Defenders of Wildlife, and the Sierra Club are cashing in on your dime. Taxpayer Dollars to Anti-Hunters How Much? On cases that were listed as ç–Žctive between October 1, 2008 and April 4, 2012 more than $21 million was paid out to pay the attorney's fees for groups suing under the Endangered Species Act (è–¦SA?. Of that $21 million, more than $6 million in taxpayer dollars went to pay attorneys for some of the nation's largest anti-hunting organizations. The money is paid out from a taxpayer fund called the Judgment Fund. That means your tax dollars are being paid to anti-hunting organizations attorneys.

    It's been going on for a long time, it's loop hole that is being used for all it's worth. Oh course common sense legislation went out the window when we introduced wolfs into the lower 48 with no plans on managing them. Or maybe that was the plan all along to end hunting or greatly reduce it.
