Re: Louisiana military hunting license prices

I will attempt to clarify my own post concerning illegals and free licenses in NC.
I had to call Wildlife Resources Enforcement Div. in Raleigh for clarification. People who meet a certain poverty status may receive social assistance, welfare, food stamps, etc in NC. Folks may go to Social Services, present a picture ID and verification of economic status and then fill out a "waiver form" and if approved may receive a free fishing license. This has to be done annually and covers only fishing. This "waiver" is not coded by law or regulation but is a policy "likely from the Governor's Office". I don't know anyone else who would have that authority. The person that I talked to didn't have a copy of the document. The wording of the "rule", "order", "policy", however it is handled, probably is not directed toward the direct benefit of illegals but to all of those in need. I know personally of a couple of "city lakes" in NC that have several "latinos" fishing them and I can't say for sure but I would bet that they are illegals. So to a certain extent, my post is heresay, and anecdotal until it is proven that illegals are taking advantage of the system. This is not going to happen.
"What we have here is some old rich guy (not so) begrudging (yes, that's true) a freebe for the downtroden who are here to do the work that Americans won't do anymore (Not true,I've done that type of work all of my life)."
So there you go....

I agree that doing the work that Americans won't do is a bunch of crap. Remove the 13 million or however many illegals and the and supply and demand will drive wages up to where Americans would do the work. The work would still be there but millions of illegals wouldn't so cost of labor would go up. I could go on forever but, this could get interpeted as political so I'll stop here.

Heh, the truth is the truth and I don't think that we need to be afraid of it.

Good hunting to you!

+1 w/Citizenjohn. Get rid of the illegals and you get rid of pay which is often off the books and below minimum wage. Then when these employers have to pay on the books and at or above minimum...plenty of Americans will gladly do the work.

Re: Louisiana military hunting license prices

Teaching children to work as part of "the family" in my opinion is one of the most important things that a parent can do for a child. It teaches them many things and empowers them with the notion that there is nothing that they can't do if they try. This has been the American way since the Pilgrims landed. Children taught well are responsible and turn into responsible adults. Today there are many parents whose children raise themselves and the parents are virtually helpless when it comes to something as simple as changing a tire and they have to call Triple AAA. Well, this wasn't so a very short time ago.
My platoon Sgt. once said that you could take 50 Americans and find the skills to do anything, carpenters, machinists, equipment operators, almost any skill or trade.
For myself, at six years old, I was swimming by myself in the local river. At eight or nine I was deemed responsible enough to hunt and skin squirrels by myself, trapped muskrats, split wood and carry it to the house every day, work in the fields, you get the point. This early training by the whole family has stood me in good stead for my entire life. As a supervisor you cannot ask people to accomplish work if you can't do it yourself. Me and many others still do the work "that Americans won't do" at home every day for our families. We are still close to the land.
I have worked my entire life finally reaching the advanced age to buy a lifetime license at a reduced rate and I find that others get theirs free because they are considered to be economically disadvantaged. H - E - Double Toothpicks, I've been economically disadvantaged my whole life, if we weren't poor maybe my Pop would have bought me a Lifetime license when I was born. Actually we were rich in the things that count, caring parents and grandparents, our health, water and woods to work in play in, the land provided our food, a wonderful community, and
GOD who has always watched over us.

This was my heritage and I will do my best to pass it on as I know many of you are doing.
Good hunting and fishing out there to all of you!!

Citizenjohn, well said. One of the problems in society today is there aren't enough folks like you around. Take care and enjoy that lifetime license, it sounds like you've earned it.
