It's often hard for people to understand my dual thinking in that I can have such respect and caring for animals but then hunt and fish for them. But I see it as keeping with our roots and in touch with nature. Same as I care for the tree I planted and grew from seeds. It's the mutual respect of living things and the nature of life to give and take.

It is one thing to eat a prepackaged piece of meat and another to eat a piece of meat you yourself killed. It's like you take on part of that animal and understand that it gave it's life so you could continue yours. It makes you less callous to what life is and what it is that sustains you.

Still hating with a passion the words US only, continental US, lower 48, and contiguous US! Shipping USPS to Puerto Rico costs you the same as shipping to Florida, for example. USPS shipping rates are the same to Puerto Rico as they are to the continental US. We are part of the US, not international. Is the US educational system that lacking?

This is easy to answer..... yes the united states will squeeze all they can in any form out of anyone. Remember the term no double taxation? They say they don't but they do that too.

My beef is more with sellers, on Ebay, aquabid and especially Amazon, who are appartently ignorant and dont know that USPS shipping rates to Puerto Rico are consistent with lower 48 because its USPS!
