Bad press, including major mockery of the plan by comedian Jon Stewart, led to President Obama abandoning his proposal to require veterans' private health insurance to cover the estimated $540 million annual cost to the federal government of treatment for injuries to military personnel received during their tours on active duty.

The President admitted that he was puzzled by the magnitude of the opposition to his proposal. "Look, it's an all volunteer force," Obama complained. "Nobody made these guys go to war. They had to have known and accepted the risks. Now they whine about bearing the costs of their choice? It doesn't compute.."

"I thought these were people who were proud to sacrifice for their country," Obama continued. "I wasn't asking for blood - just money. With the country facing the worst financial crisis in its history, I'd have thought that the patriotic thing to do would be to try to help reduce the nation's deficit. I guess I underestimated the selfishness of some of my fellow Americans.”

I one am wondering everyday, What it will take for the people in this country to get fed up with his bs, I have had about all I can take from this socialist trash.

I consider myself a pretty good generator technician and taxidermist, but i am by no means a building contractor. Here is my question. I just moved into my new shop and the concrete floor is not smooth. this causes problems when sweeping and keeping the floor clean. Is there anything that I can put over this to smooth it out? Any help is much appreciated.

I also have garmin gps in truck and in the woods. In my opinion I dont believe anyone makes a better gps. But I havent heard many people talking about their fishfinder abilities

A comment titled: gps in response to a report titled: GPS/SONAR

I am going to go with color. I have had lowrance sonar and love garmin when it comes to gps. I wish the two would combine to make the perfect combo. I have been looking at both. I am also looking at the hummingbird color combo. All three are around the 450 to 700 dollar range. Just not sure which to go with.

I dont mount fish for customers, but I do my own. The fish blanks that are made for LM Bass dont nrmallycome with big belly's, they have to be carved into the foam. I noticed also that the fins werent repaired. It does look like a prettty good paint job. Great fish for little alabama!!!

A comment titled: time in response to a report titled: Guardian generators

I wish ya'll the best with those generic I mean generac generators. haha. Time and fact has proven that you wont be so happy with them later on. The home standby will work better than their industrial machines, because they dont get used as much. Generac will no doubt be the cheapest on the market if you are just looking to save money. Then again If you could talk to the many customers I have that made the generac mistake.....You wouldnt even give the a second look.

A comment titled: Very bad in response to a report titled: Spanish Lake

I used to fish that lake religiously when they first reopened it. The bass fishing was great. But the parish workers didnt build the levies right. now they are all blown apart. The lake got filled with trash fish when they filled it back up. I tell you how bad it is...The bioligist that worked that lake has since given up on it. And the spanish lake commission is the biggest joke. My little brother was there to buy some crickets the other day and was just standing at the bank looking at the water condition while he was waiting for the man to fill his cricket bucket.....He then told my lil bro that he had to pay the fee for being by the water. He wouldnt have gotten a red cent from me at that point. but my lil bro paid it. So yeah.,....spanish lake is a joke. Save your time and gas.

A comment titled: Kw in response to a report titled: Guardian generators

The 12.5 can get a 4 ton going if no other load tries to start at the same time. The whole UL regulations on smaller gensets bothers me. Why should I and you pay a higher price because of someones stupidity. I was working during gustav. it amazed me to see how many gensets were running on people porches and the exhaust pointing toward the house. Its no wonder the death rate was high. COMMON SENSE goes a long way.

A comment titled: cummins in response to a report titled: Guardian generators

The 20 kw is liquid cooled. The 12.5 and the 15 are air cooled. Cummins just came out with a new line. Its called the RS12000. it is computer controlled . the genset operates the ats. It is a air cooled machine. but top of the line. One thing I have learned about Cummins all the years I have been working here is....They are far ahead in technology than any other genset company. Makes my job interesting .....everyday something new comes out. Just when you think you know a piece of equipment....BANG something new arrives. Go with Cummins for your genset. If you check the package will find they arent that more than the competition. If you need some contact info just shoot me a email. Or call me at 337-201-2099.

A comment titled: The Best in response to a report titled: Guardian generators

I wanted someone else to say Cummins/ Onan before I did, Cause I work for Cummins Power Generation,,,But YES. They are the best. Service, warranty, and sales price. They are more than a generac. but well worth the money.The Home standby machines are priced pretty good, and go with the package. With the ATS. Unlike generac...they wont leave you in the dark.

A comment titled: TRASH in response to a report titled: Guardian generators

First I will say that I have been a generator technician for 14 years. That thig is the biggest waste of money. Its a Generac to start. Yes they are cheap. But they are by far the worst on the market> if you luck up and get one that will work> good for you< but if you get the usual you will have hell trying to get generac to give you warranty< then the dealerships change from year to year cause noone wants to do buisness with the company(GENERAC) Just my professional opinion. I have hundred of customers in the state. 100 percent of them that have bought generac....regret it. and are looking for a replacement. Good Luck.

A comment titled: amazing in response to a report titled: Hog Mounts

its amazing how many skull mounts i get in my shop to finish cause of all these home remedies that float around. The only right way to do a skull is to use the right chemicals. The more you cook it the more you destroy the connective tissue that holds the bones together. And makes the bones very brittle.

A comment titled: the TRUTH in response to a report titled: When Is enough , ENOUGH

The truth is....if we dont start making our voices heard, there will come a time very soon that we wont be able to. I am so dissappointed in the people of this great nation we call AMERICA. Its all about the govt taking over more and more little by little until we dont have any other option but to rely on them %100. I have been a Chevy man die hard all my life. I am now going to trade in my silverado for a ford truck. I will not support a company that has laid down to Obama. The Chryster corp is next. Once they gain control of the banks and the auto industry they have won half the battle. I can only hope that the people that stood behind him are now starting to see what he is all about.

A comment titled: WHY ALOT in response to a report titled: When Is enough , ENOUGH

---Why does he want to serialize ammo?
---Why does he want to make powder that expires?
---Why does he spend billions on the study of a bird in a forrest but not want to take care of the very men that are fighting for the freedom he is putting in the red zone?
---Why does he want so bad to make us like the rest of the world when they risk their lives to come here and be like us?
---Why does he want me and every other working American pay more than we already are for the lowlife lazy a$% losers that wont work?
---Why does he want to silence conservative talk radio? And take away our only avenue to the truth.
---Why does Obama apologize to other countries for the way America has treated them....When the TRUTH IS. If not for us they wouldnt have a country to call their own.
---Why does he tell world leaders that America is no longer a Christian Nation?
---Why does America need to change into what he considers a nice place to live?
---Why doesnt he move to a muslim country if he likes it so much?
---Why do we let him give more rights aliens that are here illegally than a American that has worked hard all their life?
---Why do the people in this country stand behind him knowing he is throwing away the very things we love about our country?
---Why should I and every other hard working American pay more for supporting drug addicts and thugs that dont have their own medical insurance?
---Why does Obama have such a problem with law abiding civilians having weapons?
---Why does this man need a secret police outside the military? ( hitler, musoullini, stalin, all had the same)
---Why does he only consider himself to be black and ignore the fact that he is half white?
---Why dont we stand up and take our country back?
If the queers are only 3 percent of the country and their voice is so loudly heard, and they can make changes.....Why cant we do the same?
Its time to let our voices be heard, or it wont be long that we wont have the right to speak our minds.

A comment titled: disagree in response to a report titled: A Good Canadian Whitetail

Creating a tag system that they knew they couldnt enforce is not by any means management. Its basically a free for all here. I will agree that hey had good intentions. But they went into this knowing they didnt have the enforcement agents to ENFORCE the tag system. I am all for the tags. But if this is the way it is going to stay, i needs to be patrolled strictly. I am hearing rumors now that the tag system is going away. I have a good lease in north La. and I do manage the deer on it. So all of this doesnt help or hurt my hunting. But I do see where all of this so called management needs alot of work.

February 23, 2009 at 1:09pm
A comment titled: management in response to a report titled: A Good Canadian Whitetail

Your right, we do have really good genetics here. The main problem IS..... If its brown its down theory that too many hunters live by. Sure there are goood bucks killed here every ear. My shop stays full of great La racks. Thats why I believe that if we would go to some small kind of management we would have so much better quality hunting. Here in Louisiana there is NO management. We used to have doe days that somewhat limited the doe harvest. Now we have a tag system that is basically a ticket or hunters to blast does anytime anywhere. I was curious to see how well the LDWF would patrol the main hwys during this past hunting season. I hunt in jackson parish. I NEVER saw one agent checking tags. I could have eliminated the deer on my lease and got away with it clean and clear. Or how many hunters did i hear talking about buying their 4 year old deer tags so they could smoke 6 more deer. This is the kind of bs that needs to be taken control of here. I hope one day that the state will implement some form of management. We have good deer now, just think what it could be then.

Thanks Fellows. I am looking into making a hunt in sask next season. I gotta get a arrow into one of these big boys

A comment titled: Bad Shot in response to a report titled: Vortex 100 exit damage

I agree, That shot should have never been taken. If you cant get a good shot dont take one at all. Too many deer are left dead in the woods because of a shot like that. Luck was on your side this time, next time hopefully you will wait for a more ethical shot or pass.

February 17, 2009 at 7:53pm
A comment titled: Hunting in response to a report titled: A Good Canadian Whitetail

I wouldnt ever stop hunting in Louisiana either. I love hunting here. My lease is full of deer and I have taken some really good bucks. But in my shop...The quality bucks I get in from other states are way bigger than most killed here. I do get some monsters from tensas parish, most from tensas. where it is BOWHUNTING ONLY. or from Tunica hills. BOWHUNTING ONLY. With very few gun days. I see a pattern here.

A comment titled: age in response to a report titled: A Good Canadian Whitetail

Your right this deer wasnt a mature buck. He was not by any means the regular size whitetail I get from Canada. This deer was about 2 1/2 years old. But look at the rack it had for such a young age. This deer is very heavy horned and tall for just a 2 1/2 year old. Just imagine what he could have been at 4 or 5. Yes we do have good genetics here. And YES the hunting rules are very liberal. There are alot of things that hold Louisiana back from growing the monsters that canada has. Lots of the northern states have more mature huge deer taken. And in my opinion its because of the low numbers harvested. I do alot of deer from Mexico. They are HUGE. and in mexico it is illegal to shoot a doe. Louisiana in alot of ways doesnt too much care about deer management.

A comment titled: getting them back in response to a report titled: A short Safari

getting them here can be almost as much as the cost to kill them. first you have to hire a taxidermist there to flesh and salt them, then you have to pay a contact there to get them through customs, once in US customs if the paperwork is right, they can be shipped straight to your taxidermists tannery.. thats the way i try to get them done, to the tannery and shipped to me ready to mount. I have had customers tell me horror stories about getting their trophies back here. And it takes forever. If you have good contacts there and here to handle the paperwork and the bs, it can save you alot of money. Congratulations on your hunt!! How much did they quote you on the Leopard. I had a guy bring me one a couple years ago, cost him 30,000, just for the cat.
