The Pope in Alaska
« on: August 12, 2008, 03:46:19 PM »
     

      The Pope took a couple of days off to visit the rugged mountains of
Alaska for some sightseeing.  He was cruising along the campground in the
Pope Mobile when there was a frantic commotion just at the edge of the
woods.  A helpless Democrat, wearing sandals, shorts, a 'Save the Whales'
hat and a 'To Hell with Bush' T-shirt, was screaming while struggling
frantically and thrashing around trying to free himself from the grasp of a
10-foot grizzly.

      As the Pope watched in horror, a group of Republican loggers came
racing up. One quickly fired a 44 magnum into the bear's chest. The other
two reached up and pulled the bleeding, semiconscious Democrat from the
bear's grasp. Then using long clubs, the three  loggers finished off the
bear and two of them threw it onto the bed of their truck while the other
tenderly placed the injured Democrat in the back seat.  As they prepared to
leave, the Pope summoned them to come over. 'I give you my blessing for your
brave actions!' he told them. 'I heard there  was a bitter hatred between
Republican loggers and Democratic environmental activists but now I've seen
with my own eyes that this is not true.'

      As the Pope drove off, one logger asked his buddies 'Who was that
guy?'

      'It was the Pope,' another replied. 'He's in direct contact with
Heaven and has access to all wisdom.'

      "Well," the logger said, "he may have access to all wisdom
      but he doesn't know squat about bear hunting! By the way, is the bait
      still alive, or do we need to go back to Massachusetts and get another
      one?"


.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Up in BC they have so many bears they're moving into houses.  The RMCP as killed 2 this week for breaking and entering, one in Coquitlum and the other in North Vancouver. 

Watch out Cindi, you might have unexpected company.  LOL

They don't necessarily have to have that many... they might just have a few that are starving anyway.  Starving bears will go to great lengths to get food.

Between the decline in salmon and the decline in honey bees (and the subsequent pollination effects), it wouldn't surprise me if it was fewer, but hungry bears.
