:baffled:,,,opening a:can:eek:f worms


Warning, soap box ahead…

I LIKE RABBITS,,, they are cute and cuddly, warm and fuzzy and I like to watch them hop around the yard, I think everyone who wants to kill them, hunt them, and eat them should be outlawed and thrown in jail just because I like them!!! That’s my opinion and I am always right…and I’m guaranteed my opinion and able to voice it because it’s in the US constitution,:arrogant:

OK, trying to make a point here, seems like everywhere I go there are those people who have to have it there way, even if it means that it will get in the way of how someone else does things, right, wrong, good or bad, legal or illegal...

For example, when I was into trout fishing, anyone who put silt or mud in the rivers was bad, it would choke out the streams and kill the habitat and the fish that lived in them, and they where right and would fight about it and for it… Then I started to get into four wheeling and I became one of the people who was putting silt in the streams anywhere there was a stream crossing,, but now me and my fellow four wheelers where fighting the tree huggers to be able to keep the trails open witch we did untold amount of work on and put money into… Now this is public land and as taxpayers we had the right to use that land witch we supported and maintained through hard work and lots of money and we where right and would fight for it…

Now groups like Peta and the rest of the tree hugger groups have there opinion, that we should not kill animals, Fish, chop down tree’s,, eat meat, etc and they are right and are willing to fight about it….

Shoot bucks / don’t shoot bucks, no spikes, Shoot all the spikes, no doe’s,,, shoot lots of doe’s

Republicans / Democrats
Roe / Wade
Black / White / Yellow / Red
Straight / Gay
???Confusing right???
Man everyone wants it there way,,, Is this The United States of Burger King…

Ok, so here I sit being really passionate about Cat fishing,,, and it seems like every other day I read a thread about how its bad to run trot lines or keep big fish, nothing over 5 lb’s , 10 lb’s,,, 15lb’s,, ok you have to CPR everything,, and everyone is right and will fight about it,, Where is the tolerance??? Just because you don’t agree with the next guy does that really make him wrong??? Seems like right and wrong has more to do with where you are coming from than truth,, Now everyone has an opinion and they feel strongly about it, but is that somehow getting in the way of the community that we all love…:handshake:

Now, I do have my own feeling on how and what I do with my fish, and I feel strongly about them,, but that does not mean I’m going to knock the next guy if I don’t agree with him…”at least I try not to”

Man, I hate to see the arguing among ourselves, it brings us all down…we all have an opinion , and are welcome in most instances to voice it, but don’t knock a guy if he is different or does not agree…he has the same right…
We all love to fish ,,Be considerate to the next guy even if you disagree with him
:hug-right:

Now if a guy wants to knock off his wife,, you might want to disagree with him…

I like rabbits too, just butcherd four cute little furry things last week.:starving:
I think one integral part of your argument is the type of venue we participate in here. A more or less physically non threatening, facial and gutterly sterile atmosfear that leads many respondes to talk out their ass; much like the occasional whiskey drinker...:disdain:

I agree, somewhat...Sometimes I just keep my mouth shut around these parts for fear of being flamed to death..Of course your not gonna get 30,000 + people to all just "get along" but your right it does seem a lil overboard sometimes..And of course we probably wouldn't enjoy the popularity of the USCA if it wasn't for this forum, and what is the use of this forum???Well one use is to debate things in the catfishing world..If every one got along and agreed on everything here there would be no use for this forum..While I agree that there are some here who just lack the capacity to respect someones opinion, debate on the issues is key and paramount to the USCA..We all just need to be more respectful of opposing views...Example: Just here recently we had a huge flood here in Nashville..Some one posted whether or not we were gonna try to go fishing..It was my "opinion" that really no one should be fishing right now, that there are too many people who need help and the rivers and other waterways were flooded,nasty, and dangerous..Yet I was tore a new rear end for this response by some..I was told "not to tell me when I can fish or not"..And on top of that was chastised as to whether or not I was doing my part to rescue and help people with the flooding..I was really disappointed over this thread..I just wanted every one to be safe, I wasn't trying to tell people what to do..Anyways I get your point..People do need to be just a lil more respectful of others opinions..

I love bunnies too,fried with gravy over them.lol j/k John,not.lmao

I agree john.There is a difference in disagreeing with someone and just bashing them.I've seen post on certain topics get way out of hand,they end up in school yard name calling a lot of times.

I think it's a macho thing,It's easy to be a big man and call names on a computor.Some people don't know how to debate and issue,name calling and pettiness,ain't gonna help anyones point.
If your truley right,Then there's no reason to get nasty.Everyone don't think the same,and everyone was'nt raised the same.So veiws will vary.

do you really care what the next guy has to say? Yes and No. Yes because you wouldn't be here if you weren't wondering what the next guy knew or thought and NO because who gives a damn what the next guys opinion is. Every guy thinks hes always right. and thats just the way it is. I wonder if those cute little bunnies would make good bait??? ;)

Personally ,I like my rabbits with a little BBQ sauce on the grilll..
:cool:
I definitely was not trying to say that we should not share different opinions just be respectful of the guy that does not share yours... I think the sharing is a key to the sport growing, and not to offend anyone but I would hate to see cat fishing evolve into the hard core compotation like the bass guys have gotten to...I like to keep it fun even if its in a compotation situation at the tourneys...

asNow adays everones got a ''cause , mission , agenda , whatever yo wanna call it '' I just feel that more people need to '' chillax '' i got lots of opinions and feel i am rite all the time , the same as everyone else . I just don't see the need to go around trying to sell my beliefs nor do want to be preached at ! I've been around this world long enuff to know that you are not going to change anyones mind very likely anyways , so whats the point ? other than creating controvercy . I would like to see this forum used more for the sake of exchanging use full fishing technics , than a political soap box . and that is just my opinion .

I try to see others veiws and opinions as best I can, and respect them even if I don't agree, but I like to debate an issuue, and some folks can't handle that, they take it way to personal. If your going to make a statement about something, you should be prepared to back it up with facts and reason, just my opinion! resorting to calling names and obsentitys just shows a weak statement was made with nothing to back it up. We should be able to talk about what we feel as right or wrong and discuss ethics in a sane manner without anyone getting their feelings hurt. when it comes to actually doing the things I like to do, this is how I do it and if you don't fine, but I'll mind my business when you do something I don't like and expect the same in return.

Rabbits are good pets, they breed quickly and grow fast,making for a cheap meat supply and fertilizer factory for the vegatable garden.

I like eating all kinds of animals. If everything goes to helk, it's nice to know that I'll be eating while others starve to death. My grandpa was in WWII and he told me that if you get hungry enough you'll eat anything. I just feel lucky it hasn't got to the point that a nice supper consisting of rat/mouse is the main course. I often wonder if this peta, left or right, and socialist or not makes it easier for the government to divide and conquer its people.?

I once (notice the word once) belonged to a site where it was encouraged to state your opinion (on basicly anything) but you'd better be able to back it up with proof. Provide a responsible site for your facts.
While on that site I had a fellow offer me the opportunity to pick a side and he would take the other side and we would debate it. It soon became obvious that that kind of thing was happening entirely too often --at least in my opinion.
I participated in many of the debates but not as a main debater. I don't type fast enough and my dial up connection sux.
Anyway I don't belong to that site anymore. The bickering took the fun out of belonging.
Its ok to agree to disagree but enough is enough.

Just my opinion

Have a good 1

Well,
Let's face it you're all full of crap. You know you must be because I say so and I know everything.
I don't need to debate anything because I know everything and everything I know is right.
I'll leave the mass debating to you bunch of massdebaters.
My way of fishing better than y'alls' as are my politics, morals, sense of style, choice of music and, well... basically everything.
I don't need to respect anything anyone else says..... why would I respect anything from those not as perfect as me..those who don't know crap from crackerjack.
And as for those haircuts...what were y'all thinking.
If you don't think everything about me is right, just read this post over and over until you come around to my way of thinking which, by the way, just happens to be the right way to think.
I don't need facts and data to prove i'm right because everyone knows that there isn't anyone out there capable of coming up with data as perfect as me. Just accept that all of you are wrong and I am right and everything will be just fine.
In closing, lets just agree to agree that I am more right about everything and you secretly all want to be me cos my jokes are funnier too.
And as for rabbits, RABBITS SUCK They must suck because I say so...W


I have to go back to my cell now
