Friday Fun: Anti-Hunters Think Director Steve Spielberg Shot a Real Dinosaur
Katie Pavlich | Jul 11, 2014

There has been no shortage of insane anti-hunting idiocy lately, but things just got a lot worse. Director Steven Spielberg is being accused of shooting a Triceratops. Why?
 
It all started when someone name Jay Branscomb posted this photo on Facebook as a joke. The caption reads, "Disgraceful photo of recreational hunting happily posing next to a Triceratops he just slaughtered. Please share so the world can name and shame this despicable man."

 
But people took it seriously and actually believe Spielberg shot and killed the dinosaur. Here are some examples.

 
Anti-hunting derangement syndrome strikes again. Whoever you are Jay Branscomb, I salute you.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions.

Just think... their vote counts just as much as yours.

Ain't universal suffrage great?

Yeah, I suffer every time one of them exercises suffrage.

Better than the alternative IMO. I'll take some idiot voters over the potential for abuse that exists without universal suffrage.

From what I've seen over the past 4 yrs. or so, it looks like there is abuse with suffrage.

I sort of disagree. While I think no one should be barred from voting based on race, sex, religion, orientation or intelligence, I do think the only people who should be permitted to vote are the ones with skin in the game. Tax payers and military, in other words.
