Trophies or not, Palin has no real NEED to shoot moose... there are ample supplies of commercially butchered meats available (shit, the best Aussie beef heads to the US by the shipload daily), so yes, Palin is killing neeedlessly, and possibly an animal that could soon be on the endangered species list while people condone and participate in moose slaughter.
I don't have a need to slaughter cows either. Other people do it for me. I don't have a need to eat those cows either. But I do eat beef, as I am sure you do as well.
I don't understand why it acceptable for you to eat meat and have an animal killed for it while it is a needless kill when Palin eats meat. Commercially butchered meats are animals too.
We are all killing needlessly (or have people to do it for us), and to condemn it when others do it while it is obviously all right when we do it is hypocritical at best and insanity at worst.
Yes, I have... the BBC, National Geographic and others have aired documentaries clearly showing hunters slaughtering wildlife all over the World and just leaving their carcasses to rot. And there's no WOW about it... it's fucking disgusting.
I don't doubt that. I just don't see why it is relevant. I have seen people do all sorts of bad things, but I never thought that I can use that as an "argument" against somebody I happen to dislike.
"Look at Obama! Other people do bad things. So obviously he must be bad." It shouldn't work that way.
Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit... and we have nothing further to discuss/debate.
If you believe that Palin killing an animal to eat it morally worse than you eating an animal killed by someone else, and if you believe that documentaries on other people are an argument against Palin, we do indeed have nothing further to discuss.
You are a hypocrite and a simpleton.
