In the Event of State Shutdown, Grab All the Wild Critters You Can

I really need to pay more attention to the Michigan Votes e-mails. Our legislators come up with some fine ideas, and we should applaud them for their ingenuity.

House Bill 5031 (Suspend fishing and hunting license requirements during state shutdown )

Introduced by Rep. Paul Opsommer(R) on June 2, 2009, to establish that in the event of a state government shutdown individuals would not need a hunting, fur harvester's, or fishing license to engage in these activities, and hunting land would remain open regardless of funding.
Nice to know that our House Republican friends are preparing for the day that they finally drown government and we have to return to the wild to hunt our own food and trade furs to get our i-Pods and other shiny trinkets.

Will we be allowed to cut down the trees and float them down the rivers to sell to the lumber barons from back East as well? Maybe someone can offer an amendment for that.

Instead of moving forward to the "green economy", we could return to the "frontier economy". Round up the horses!
