Maybe so, but there are a lot of us, and we vote!

Ignorance isn't something to be proud of.

It is as important to me as fired/not fired cooks. She does not talk about coherently about the war, the economy, etc, so we are left with the heart warming image of a hockey mom who spends quality time with her kids slaughtering wolves and doing it from the air so they do not have a chance! Hunting takes some skill, some cunning. This is wolf slaughter.

I didn't always live in a city, so think again. And "radical"? Just because I don't believe in killing Alaska's wolves, doesn't mean I support PETAs crazy agendas. Way to jump to conclusions.

Just because you're for killing them, does that mean you're also for killing Blue Whales and Pandas? It's the only logical conclusion.

One's environment affects one. When and how long did you not live in a city? It's a fact that the majority of the PETA types are city people, and very ignorant.

I'm for the scientific management of wildlife. In this case I support the predator control program because it's needed. I also hunt and trap and will likely get some wolves in Alaska (not from a plane though). I in fact like wildlife a lot (and despise overcrowded cities) and look forward to having wolves around. I simply aim to look at things like this rationally not emotionally...

In my opinion, this is a doctored video from people who have a personal agenda. Anybody who would fall for this is very gullible. What's next?

I grew up eating deer and pheasant from the woods of PA. My uncle was a hunter, and he killed to eat only. No trophies, and he tracked every animal he hit. The native Alaskan did not have airplanes to track and kill their meat, so if they want to continue their traditional ways, ok. When you decide to open a slaughter house for wolves, regulate it and call it what it is, a slaughter house, but make sure all those wolves are food. Sport killing for trophies and not subsistence is disgusting.

If it was true last week, then it's still true this week. Sarah Palin is still a very dangerous woman that should be investigated thoroughly. Why would we give her access to national security codes that could send us ALL to war and death?? I mean, great, that you're for your condidate, but why is this psycho getting a free pass on all the things that she's been called on???

You do not believe there is aerial hunting?
