    You all have a good fall. I'll check back in a couple months.
    I have to agree with Buzz.
    This used to be one of the last respites on the internet where people didn't wear their politics on their shirt sleeves. Always was a good place to come and talk about fishing & the mountains. Like buzz said, yes, certain issues directly effect us as sportsmen & women, but when a discussion strays into endless partisan brow beating, I believe it starts to damage what this forums inherent draw once was. If that's you're style though, fair enough.

    Want to apologize for the post "here's one for you".I was aggrevated because of the closing of the Park.I did not intend the post to be viewed as political...but as a lover of the park and it's streams for some 40years,I felt compelled to comment on the park closure etc.I believe the national parks are our "Last Best Place".

    If you have ever ran your own business, you know that when revenues are down, your pay is down. Rather than curtail services, why not just an across the board cut of 50% on everything from federal pay rolls and food stamps, to social security. If you are dumb enough to depend on a government check and do not like, get a real job. Next sell of TVA and most of the western BML land. Run it like a business, not a steal-athon.

    Had a real job. Had lots of money taken out of my paycheck for the promise of social security. Retired. Would like to get some of my money back.
