Washington State needs new representation!

Hunters need to band together and vote these Whack jobs out of office!

This is what was on Representative Jay Inslee's webpage!

"In the last 10 years, over 800 polar bears have been killed by hunters to decorate American homes. U.S. Reps. Jay Inslee (D-Wash.) and Frank A. LoBiondo (R-N.J.) filed legislation in the House that would end the practice and help stop the decline of the iconic marine mammal, now threatened by global warming. A companion measure is expected to be introduced today in the Senate by U.S. Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.)."

I am so glad this was defeated on the floor yesterday! I cannot understand the ignorance that must be present in a mans head to believe that hunters go hunting so that they can decorate their homes! With that little bit of ignorance alone should give most voters all of the knowledge they need to choose another candidate.

Lets do the math, 80 polar bears per year for 10 years and close to $4,000,000 in tag fees that go to native tribes in Nunavut. Millions of dollars donated to conservation projects by those same hunters and other hunters who dream of someday hope to hunt polar bears. Conservation dollars that are needed!

Just ask the Humane Society of the United States how much money has actually been donated to real conservation projects from their organization. The answer will be zero!

How much money has been spent to stop hunting of polar bears and other wildlife? Millions
