Editor - Shame on you for allowing Daveg to continue to post these types of blogs. It starts off with a false statement, you get a ticket for fishing or hunting w/o a license, and continues to become more and more inflammatory.

The PW is becoming more and more a right winged hated spewing anarchist outlet for those that just cant past the fact that we, United States citizen have a democratic society.

I think I will stop reading the PW and supporting the advertisers of the PW while it continues to let these nuts spot such nonsense. Some much for a "community" newspaper.

Shame on you Nancy, in fact, one can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license Web Link , and although not common, that is an accurate statement. What other statements made do you find untrue? The point is that this country seems to have lost its way in trying to please all regardless of what the majority may feel. Do you feel that this is still a democracy? Here's a definition for you to ponder as you decide rather to respond.
A democracy is a regime where rule is determined by the people. Usually, the rule of the people involves voting either directly on propositions, or indirectly through representatives.

The original Greek word was derived from demos, meaning "the people," and kratein meaning "to rule." So it means '' ruled by the people'' or ''the people rule.''

Essentially, a democracy is a system of government owned and controlled by the majority of those it governs. Decisions on policies and actions by the government are made by the elected representatives of the populace, or by direct plebiscite (propositions decided by a majority vote of the citizens).
