Bolton: Marked for death


Published:

No this is not about a movie starring Steven Segal destroying everyone in his path with his martial arts skills. I wish it was because that is one of my favorite things to do and write about.

But for the moment this is a serious subject regarding the needless killings of small and big game throughout the world by knuckle-dragging Neanderthals who get a big rise by killing something that’s completely defenseless.

It makes these guys feel like real men. Let’s take a look at some of the game animals they like to kill: Namely, elephants, rhinos, gorillas, monkeys, hippos, lions, tigers, bears, bobcats, ducks, moose, deer, etc. You get the picture and I have not even touched on sea animals.

I would love to meet these tough guys at some of my self-defense and martial art demonstrations I give periodically. It might give them meaning to their misguided life with a warped sense of value towards life, in which these animals I mentioned, have as much right to be here as all of us.

I know, you’re saying the (NRA) National Rifle Association along with blowhard Ted Nugent, also known as the Motor City Madman, say it’s OK. Let’s take a look at the sources.

The NRA wants to sell memberships, influence votes, sell magazines/newsletters, guns, ammo, etc. Just follow the money.

Now for Detroit rocker Ted Nugent, who wraps himself in the American flag. Did you know he dodged the Vietnam War in which somebody else had to go in his place and also dated and slept with underage girls? This was in his own words in a rock documentary they did on him and he is proud of it. Always consider the source.

I have a very serious question I would like to ask these-trigger happy lowlifes that love to kill animals. If all these animals were armed and could shoot back with the skill of a sniper would you still hunt?

Let me provide you with the answer, because I know you don’t have the guts to answer it: No. And why not? Because the tables are turned against you, which makes you a coward. That’s right tough guy, you’re a coward!

So you have to ask yourself a question: Would you like to be one of these animals and be marked for death?
