Greetings from Vermont jenandkailey..
I've taken several Deer and I'm NOT about to drink a Deers blood and I think it's too cold during hunting season
to be smearing blood on our faces BUT if some hunters feel they need to do such things I guess it's ok for them...

Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch.
Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the outcome of the vote.
