    Yet republicans are ok with calling the opposition "demonrats" but get upset when labelled a supporter of the "repugnant" party? As someone replied earlier: "You know that is simply not done in polite society" - so sorry, but if you can't take it - don't dish it out. QED.

    Im sure of that. But IMO when the expert political analysis starts, it's gone from a hunting forum for hunters, to just another form of the media - with a the inherent bias!

    Maybe it was "bomb throwing" but just to test a point to the nth degree. But in casting normal political action/reaction as some kind of underground resistance to a tyrranical regime is stretching the point a bit too far I think - as you said yourself, "that's not done in polite society". But...

    So triggered if someone has an opinion that different from yours? Hmmm!! Then maybe that's probably why there are opposing political parties to start with, huh? If there wasn't then we'd all be under one party states, just as Germany became in the 30's, and look what happened then. But as for...

    Future of international hunting

    IMO that has a lot to do with the manipulation of the media in not supporting/advocating for sport hunting or target shooting. Yet it's quite ok and proper for society to tacitly condone your local abbatoir by enjoying the convenience of buying cellophane portions of meat and fish at your local...

    Hydros In Smaller Caliber Rifles

    I totally agree!! Woodleighs are a great game projectile. I've taken over half a dozen African DG (so far), from a hippo on the run at 120yds down to a quatering on cape buff at 35. Their 500gr RNSN, atop 72gr of AR2206H, just flattens game!! I run Woodies out of my 9.3x62 (286gr RNSN) and my...

    You're just upset, and venting your (wildly inaccurate!) xenophobia, that someone other than a repugnant party member or demonrat has an opinion on this forum. By the vitriol some have expressed through the mainstream media (yes, I know it's all 150% incorrect if not pro-repugnant), it's seeming...

    Only point I've ever made has been confirmed by analysis of those in the business, and now on here, that Trump lost because voters didn't like him, per se, than the republican party policies. I never like him, and not only have the balls to say so, but why - which now seems why he lost. But the...

    Yeah that's fine to agree to disagree, but your figures may just go to show how many people come out of the woodwork for this election - OR - BOTH sides have been indulging in a bit of voter fraud to get the record numbers?

    Its a much more laid back affair in Oz, people just accept the outcome - and if they don't like it vote the other way in 3yrs time! But to keep the 2 main parties honest, if the state government is one party, some people vote the other way (federally) - that way there's some degree of checks and...

    Hydros In Smaller Caliber Rifles

    I read an online scientific veterinarian report that published the results of hydros tested in the euthanasia of beached whales in New Zealand and Australia. They used .30cal hydros in a .308 Win, .30/06 Spr and a .300 Win to head shoot beached whales. The hydros proved they all had exceptional...

    As I said, in the next election there will undoutedly be more voters by virtue of the fact that the US population would have inevitably increased - just as there are more people living in the US than 4, 10 or 20 years ago - so your claim Trump having received more votes than any sitting...

    And I suppose in the next US election it will again be reported about a candidate's popularity having "the most votes ever cast in history" - forgetting of course that in the years between elections the US population would have, inevitably, grown larger by that point anyway.

    Succinctly put. As I believed when I was last on AH - and you just accurately stated - they lost the election not because the electorate disliked Republican policies, but because they had enough of Trump himself: his personality and conduct.

    IMO over the years (as a non citizen) I've watched Trump's performance as a statesman and have been aghast time and again by his naivete: to the point where he's been openly lampooned. That and his history of bankruptcy and scams (eg: Trump University), ongoing failures over his Healthcare Bill...

    1st Traditional Dangerous Game Rifle

    There's just so many which fit being a "classic" calibre for Africa, the first (in the modern, smokeless powder, sense) being the 450 Nitro Express that was marketed in 1898 - but this calibre is in the preserve of double express rifles. However you can pick up a nice Ruger No.1 in 450/400. Then...
