It just come on the news here that Cheney dident have the proper paperwork/licence/permit for the shoot.
Anyone confirm that?
they're talking about a specific stamp you have to get for your hunting permit. it costs $7 and was instituted about 5 months ago. some hunters don't know about it so the authorities tend to let the accused off with a warning.
and i was laughing for a good five minutes at CJ's response to black rain.
BTW CJ, by their own definition anyone who does not fully support bush is automatically a 'liberal', whatever their actual beliefs (like small gov't, for instance).
i heard this atty on the abrams reports say in TX if there's no horse play and drinking you're not hunting...any truth to this el?
it's the old phrase, 'it's only illegal if you're caught doing it'. cheney could have been too drunk to fish and it wouldn't have mattered a bit. but you can't ignore the fact that someone was injured. as it is, this guy is in a hospital and he's got plenty of money to pay the medical bills, plus he's got a friend (cheney) who has all the motivation in the world to make sure he recovers and cheney's got plenty of gov't resources that can be called on.
and if even if the guy dies, the r's can do a schiavo on him.
Neither mean they are serious, or common practice (or practiced at all for that matter).
absolutely amazing..you are our psychic friend,you can read minds over the internet..especially when the post wasn't directed to you.(you live in the ne right?)i just didn't use the or or some other wonder icon to emote SARCASM..you must be very lonely this valentine's day to be monitoring our posts and correcting them like a single spinster teacher noone want's to fcuk .see that was a joke lighten up..
so today he gave a statement..said he had "a" beer before they went hunting..do any of you get lubed up before you hunt? or after..survey seems to say not until after..also said that telling the ranch owner to release the press because it was her ranch, was a good call...hmmm...new thoughts?
the local sherriff says cheney wasn't drunk. of course, he only interviewed cheney 2 days after the incident.
quite a few people don't buy the '30 yard range' bit, either. a 28-gauge gun couldn't deliver enough force at that range to cause the injuries being described. i.e.: the guy was closer, a lot closer.
as far as waiting 2 days before the news was discovered by a local paper: cheney was just scared ****less of what rove was going to say. a major job of a VP is to not embarass the president and shooting someone by accident qualifies as an embarassment.
