Massachusetts Bans Hunting Contests Targeting Coyotes

News from the Northeast.

Critics of the contests welcome the ban. They say the contests inflict needless pain by encouraging the killing of animals for cash or prizes.

“Participants of wildlife killing contests often use unsporting and cruel techniques – such as calling devices that mimic the sound of prey or even pups in distress – so that they can lure shy coyotes and foxes to shoot at close range,” Laura Hagen, Massachusetts state director for the Humane Society of the United States, said in a statement.

All of you boys who have worked so hard on your Turkey calls to lure those shy gobblers didn’t know you were using an unsporting and cruel technique, huh?

May the pet owners of Massachusetts get what they so richly deserve with these duly elected rulers.

    The enrichment improvementation is encroaching locally. There are street lights going up every few feet so you can see the hypo needles and liquor bottles.
    The national grocery chain that has been 24-7 since 1994 is now closing at midnight.
    For sale signs are going up and new masonry around homes where you can almost hear the property values dropping.
    What a glorious utopia the bestest and brightestest Yankees have made.

    Yet another shining example of why there is no hope for the recovery of the once-great U.S.A. unless we repeal the 19th amendment and prohibit women from holding elective office. I understand how heretical that sounds, but I see no way to even begin to legitimately solve our problems without bloodshed otherwise. I’m not optimistic.

    As a fellow heretic, I am in complete agreement with Mr. Nicholas Digger, Sr.

    @ Nicholas,

    The Federal Reserve (private banking cartel) is the shift into high gear besides all the damage that Ape Lincoln did. Also FDR put us on the fast track to Fundamental Transformation.
    Maybe WWII was about saving the commies so it could be implemented here by pink haired basket weaving studies degrees majors who think that the crocodiles will eat them last.
    Also the Frankfurt School refugees who thank us for saving them from the National Socialists (Nazis) by proceeding to destroy the republic from within.

    Well, yes, the 19A.

    It occurred to me to expand on the comment I made yesterday in the hunting wild hogs post. You needn’t refer; it’s all here, if anybody cared to know how (why) you know in your heart that the 19th is wrong read on.

    Genesis 2:18 “And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.”

    This is the curse of the whole earth for not leading as the head. God made the man (Adam) the head and the woman as a help meet:
    “And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;”

    If the whole earth is cursed because of this, and it is, how much so your nation, tribe, or family it you fail to lead?

    This is the Law of God:
    “Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.”

    These 10 commandments are not flat, two dimensional narrowly interpreted (injustice John Roberts anybody) edicts. The 10 commandments are a framework, topic headings, an outline, a table of contents; choose one, but they are in FACT, just that. Who is the head, if we submit to our Heavenly Father, and honour our earthly father? That would be to admit the first commandment; having no other gods, and to be the man at the head in all things. This is the Law of God. Putting women at the head doesn’t only violate the 5th commandment but also the first, and perhaps others.

    And I will eventually get tired of telling dead ears that Christ did NOT end the Law of commandments, although a true follower of Christ needs them not, because the Law was made for the unjust that they might be taken to task, and find God. Nobody can keep the whole Law, this why (how) we are saved by Grace.

    The question:
    Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
    The words of Christ:
    Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” *

    Again, we see our God setting out the framework, this time in only two headings; our relationship toward Father God (the first 5 commandments), and our relationship one with another (the last 5 commandments).

    The law of the 5th commandment, the man at the head, brought forward into the New Covenant:
    “Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise; That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.”

    (I skipped the Cases in the Old Testament where violation of this Law had consequences, now for an example unto us and for our admonition and edifying, but they are there, read the Profits for yourself, as the Law also hangs on them (their words to us.) The same type of horrifying events awaits us now and are arriving now, I contend!)
    We have these subheadings, not a new commandment at all but from thousands of years prior and from even before the Law was handed down, from Genesis. These are some specific relevant instructions in the New Testament:
    “Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.”
    “Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.”
    “For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.”

    I don’t know anything about the Enlightenment so insert your own ridiculous Enlightenment blasphemy here:

    Then we wind up at the 19A from 1920:
    “The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.
    Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.”

    Insert your own, boomer or 1960’s hippy blaspheme here as to women run amok:

    And finally to this, the now arriving first tastes of the consequences for us:
    Enjoy your barren women leaders, sodomites, and barbarian invaders, you deserve them.

    How are those exploding cancer rates? How about the coming civil war? Still think God is a liar? You’re going to love the subsequent famines.

    I suspect that God takes no pleasure in the arriving judgement, and for all I know; His hand is stretched out still.

    *[Addressing the Apostles statement in Ephesians 2 which appears at first glance to end the 10 commandments and even to contradict himself and Christ: “Put now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.”
    “even the law of commandments” is one of the most misunderstood, and purposefully abused verses in the entire New Testament. It does NOT mean that Jesus ended the 10 commandments as right, proper, and necessary to a well functioning civil and YES GOVERNMENTAL structure. It means, in plain terms, exactly what the entirety of the Holy Bible says; that the Law of Commandments is NOT salvific, that you can NOT and will NOT be saved by observing the Law. There was only ever one way, and this is to believe on Him who made the Law. Right before that misused phrase is the word; “enmity” or war with God. We are not made for the Law, the Law is given to us but does not end our war with God, only submission, surrender, acceptance does that; “so making peace”. This is one more example of why only accept the King James Version and it takes careful and diligent examination to pick apart each phrase to truly understand it, instead of having some dumbed down feminized version that obscures or changes meanings of things. There are no contradictions in the Holy Bible. The Apostle does NOT contradict the 10 commandments or Christ or his own other writings in the Scriptures. A smart man reading that from Ephesians would ask: Made both of what, one?]

    The usual disclaimer: I have no special knowledge of what may come from this, I just read my King James Holy Bible and observe the times.

    @Sneaking Up On A Fox,
    I have had in mind to lay out the law of Just Balances, re; the Federal Reserve 1913. Interestingly, the same people who rejected their Messiah are at the head of that blasphemous international cartel, profaning the Law of God to make money as debt. But to say so is now in violation of Trump’s exec order, because when I do end up laying that out, from the Holy Bible, not my opinion, it sure as daylight at sunrise will be a glaring light of judgement against the Sanhedrin 2.0 but I will not back down.
