Or 1964 for that matter. I owe debts for the things that I have done. ME. Not some plantation owner 170 something years ago.
And the civil war was fought over STATE RIGHTS. NOT SLAVERY.
There. I've said my peace. I'll go sit in the corner now and suck on my thumb some more.
Continue on all! Nothing to see here.
Hunters are the only true conservationists as we keep animal populations in check by culling if need be and taking out sick and injured animals.
You only have to look at how Africa manages it game populations that are now in a real healthy state compared to a century ago because hunters have made the commitment to help preserve them no matter what some raving idiot tree hugger says.
It's the same in Australia, USA, UK and other country's hunters preserving animals for future generations to either hunt or build up their numbers because of deprivation by feral animals,disease etc.
We do more for animal preservation than any Animal Libber whacko does in 10 years of waffling on an dthose tv adds where they show animals in pain and being "persecuted" and can you send $xxxx amount every year to help these animals would have to be 1 of the biggest con jobs going around.
You blokes will want to be veerrryyy careful with the "sorry" bit on slavery it can and will open up all sorts of nasty bastardry.
Case in point is with our Aboriginals and the "stolen generation" that happened about 50 years ago(I think) where Aboriginal children were taken off their parents and put into foster care because it was deemed that they were not being properly looked after.
Now come forward and the Aboriginal "stolen generation" has been looking for an apology from the "Whitey's" who caused all this and successive PM's have avoided saying "SORRY!" because they knew what would entail with claims for compensation.
Of course 1 PM did fall for the trap and now it's opened up all sorts of **** and caused more divisive problems between blacks and whites. Sad that this happened and broke up family's but I'll not be responsible for things that happened years before I was born and suffer accordingly.
As it now stands the Aboriginals get handouts from our govt. as it is and they're in a better position than most of us "whitey's" as they get paid to send their kids to school and the reverse racism is unbelievable as they call us invaders and murderers but will still accept money handouts from the govt. and vast tracts of land given to them.
There is a great lot of them that just piss it up the wall on alcohol and drugs and abuse their own kids but they're given job chances and more priviledges than any white people a case of too much given too quickly to a people who don't appreciate what they've been given and this is in part to people who have gotten into the act as "advisors" and are making a small fortune out of it.
That's basically a condensed version of what's happened with us but there's a lot more than that to it and there's a lot of white Aussies who are really pissed off with the Abo's and their attitudes to we white people.
Now having said that there is also a lot of very good sportsmen and women and hardworking Aboriginals amongst us that do a lot for their people and these have a lot of respect from everybody so it's a 2 way street at times and I've played sport with and against some Aboriginals and they're good people but like everybody they're tarred with the actions of the minority.
