In this paragraph Eric Sharp describes many of the hunt/fish so called Michigan sportsman hypocrites that I have to deal with every day. They hate environmentalist so much that they are in full favor of destroying their watersheds and all their hunting and fishing habitats just to support the GW Bush, NRA, antienvironmental Republican agenda. Then they have the audacity to complain about their lost of hunting and fishing opportunities.

One fisherman I know sneered at Earth Day celebrations he saw on a television news show. When I asked what he could possibly find to dislike when people try to improve the environment of the planet, he didn't have a sensible answer. But he burst into in a vituperative political diatribe aimed at everything from people who approve of abortion to people who oppose limiting immigration.

ERIC SHARP'S WORDS DESERVE REAL CONSIDERATION..... ....AND ARE A REAL INSPIRATION TO WORK ON REAL ON THE GROUND PROBLEMS AND GETTING RESULTS THAT CAN BE MEASURED....SEE BELOW

"A real hunter and angler worries about the loss of species thousands of miles away, even though he might never hunt or fish for them, because he knows that all creatures are part of an incomprehensibly complex web in which each plays a part.

A real hunter and angler looks at issues like global warming without letting partisan politics blind him to the solid evidence from the scientific community.

But by the same token, a real environmentalist doesn't allow himself to be to be co-opted by animal rights extremists who don't give a darn about preserving species but simply want to impose their morality on everyone else.

A real environmentalist doesn't become an advocate of saving whales in oceans thousands of miles away while remaining blissfully ignorant about the activities of the Department of Natural Resources in his own state."
