<<"Yesterday I posted the story about Indians killing tens of thousands of falcons with large nets." - intercst



We just don't know what it is to be really poor. Reminds me of the line from the song "A wise man doesn't know what it is to be thick as a brick." In the same vein someone that lives in the United States and is wealthy just doesn't have a clue what it means and how it feels to be really poor.

When I read the article I was bothered by the idea of killing all those falcons, how we worship wild birds here, especially falcons and hawks and owls, but if I was really poor, and hungry, with no way to make money, I might be out there with nets doing the same exact thing. >>



I think Art proves he is wiser than intercst on this thread.

Our liberal friends take the righteousness for granted. But their environmentalist values amount to just another primitive form of animal worship. And their religious motivations blind them to the values others live by.
