Regardless of what you think of hunting, should authorities be out tracking people who have cellphones, GPS, or two way radios on them if they are not already a target of an investigation? If vegetarians wanted to track those who ate at steak houses so the patrons of the restaurant were fined, arrested, and had to appear in court, would that be okay with you? Should golf be legal for married men who should be spending time with their families on weekends? Should any of us be allowed, when not at work, not have to stay home and watch government sponsored television, eating cheese doodles on our couches? I am trying to get some of you to understand the big picture. Regardless of whether you agree with someone else's free speech, or one's recreation, do you agree that we the people in America should continue to have Constitutional rights?

Robert De Niro, The Deer Hunter movie by askmen.com


I talked with a deer hunter who traveled 8 hours to hunt with his friends. A goon squad of authorities went out into the woods, surrounded them, and they now have to appear in court. They were going to get nailed for something, regardless of whether they did anything illegal, or not. I have been hearing of these type of operations, more and more.

Do police use your On-Star to eavesdrop on conversations in your vehicle? Is your GPS device and Smart Phone used to alert police if you run a stop sign or are going even a few miles over the speed limit? Are these devices used to monitor you to see who you associate with? Do police use the video camera and microphone on your Smart Phone to spy on you even when the device is off?

Should men who save money all year round to spend one weekend together, get criminal records, and maybe ruined for life, just for enjoying recreation that is supposed to be legal in America? Should these men lose their children, families, home, and job? Women do hunt, I am not being sexist, talking about a guys weekend out together. Are authorities out to give all average Americans criminal records, so we aren't only debt slaves, but we have to report to a probation officers, and not dare engage in Free Speech or in activities where we might meet out in areas where police can't listen to our conversations and monitor our activities?

Welcome to the new America, comrade. Silence signifies acceptance.
