Finally - Thank you for taking action to protect our national parks. If things get any slower on Care2 we all can take naps while waiting on things to go through. Three hours ago I posted a couple of more stories, figure if it goes like this morning it'll be another couple of hours before they show up. Ranting doesn't help, well maybe it does, I feel better.

Thank you Dandelion. I have discovered my notes, comments and petitions ARE FINALLY RESOLVED. Maybe C2 is "fixing" different sections at a time, I don't know. JUST NEVER GIVE UP. As Kit patient!

I hear you Kit. I placed this on this morning, took to lunch to see it, then I made a message, but had to wait for the other 2 stories I did to also crawl through the lag time to add them on there. Then I had to wait for my own message to show up to myself, so I could then forward. Took all day to do something that should of been done in under 20 minutes. I didn't sit all day at the computer, but had to keep coming back 5 minutes here and 5 minutes there.

Signed the petition and noted, thanks. Last thing we need is hunting in our National Parks. Funny how Baby Boomers had it right way back in 1970 when Joni Mitchell sang "Big Yellow Taxi". Way ahead of our time.

I tried to sign, but they insisted on a Phone number! I don't know whether my letter went through! I'm certainly against this, as they want to do the same here! Not only are they able to shoot whatever they want, but during the tourist season People are at risk as well! I don't know about the USA, but here they're only supposed to shoot Feral Animals, but I doubt that the Recreational Hunters will stick to that! People nowadays just want to enjoy themselves with Guns and Rifles. I believe they should be banned altogether!

Already signed, thanks Dandelion.
And if the Care2 issues aren't enough, a &*(&^ popup saying Flash player has crashed is driving me crazy...hundreds of times. Since it does it when I'm in Yahoo email I assume it's not a C2 issue.If it comes up one more I'm taking the rest of the day off from the computer...and maybe tomorrow too.

NO to SA 2302 to farm bill!

NO hunting in any parks. Parks were designed for people and children.

Ty, Dandelion.

I couldn't agree more Jim, I don't want to be enjoying nature and wondering if someone might accidently take a pop shot at me. Or what, we will all be required to wear bright orange in order to first enter the park. This is not what the parks were set up to.

And what is attaching these things to what is suppose to be a Farm Bill, they should only be addressing the bill itself and none should be able to do these attachments. Is why we get so much crazy crap, is someone attaches some foolishness onto a major bill that makes sense to pass.

TY Sheryl, this is just more of the same. The Congress likes to sneek crap like this in. Makes me so angry that anyone would propose such a horror as killing animals in our parks. The NRA is powerful.....
