I mostly lurk around here, but this morning I saw the headlines regarding Romney's comments to the Denver Post where he stated that he would honor temporary work permits for young illegal immigrants who were allowed to stay in the U.S. under the President's executive order. Great. Romney's making a deserate dash back to the center and hoping that the immigrant community's memory is short enough that he picks up some votes. Whatever.
But what struck me is his reasoning: "The people who have received the special visa that the president has put in place, which is a two-year visa, should expect that the visa would continue to be valid. I'm not going to take something that they've purchased."
With all of the economic woes currently facing the country, it seems that all the public wants to hear is the presidential candidates' plans for fixing the mess we're in. Some voters, however, have concerns that haven't gotten much airtime this election. One of these that is near and dear to my heart is the conservation of our nation’s public lands, its fish, and its wildlife. You see, I am a specimen of one of the rarer of political species: the Democrat with a valid hunting license. We can discuss your distaste for the methods by which I obtain some of my meals at a later date. Today, let's examine the presidential candidates as they attempt to address the concerns of America's hunters and anglers.
