So there's going to be a Republican dinner with a dove shooting party. Invitation posted below:



Anyone find it amusing that they want to shoot doves on Sept. 11? Doves, the symbol of peace. What those who are against war are called as opposed to "hawks."

Yes, I do realize that dove hunting is an actual sport and there is a such thing as dove season, but this is just too rich.

LOL GOO SOUTHERNERS! Oh my gosh. That's something normal here. Though there's a difference between Morning Doves and dove doves. Morning doves are shootable. Doves... not so much.

ANYWAY it's a southern tradition to go morning dove hunting, so it's really not all that bad. Infact it's not all that fun. I don't like tracing things with a shot gun pointed at the sky.

But the timing couldn't be better. XD

I think the mere fact that they chose that date is what makes it amusing.

Anyway, on the matter of hunting them, what sort of ammunition do you use that doesn't fill their bodies so full of lead that they'd be impossible to do anything with other than toss in the garbage?

Bird shot I assume. But seriously, that is hilarious! Poor mourning doves (that is the spelling of the name incidentally).

Now we know why they are mourning. In a way, isn't that worse? Shooting mourning doves on 9/11!!

I'm completely independant. I have my pros/cons with both Democrats and Republicans. But now, all I can say is WHAT THE FUCK?!?

I have lost all respect in the Republican side.... Shooting mourning doves on 9-11? That's just fucked. I now officially hate republicans!




PS - Sorry if I offended anyone... Seriously...

Ironic, yes. A reason to hate the Republican Party, I don't think so. I'd rather justify that by the thousands of people they've killed and the trillions of dollars they've wasted.

*falls off chair in fit of laughter*

Oh gods, that is so funny. Sadly it's also a good point, who knows what/who will end up full of bird shot before the day is done. Better make sure they all have a valid hunting license.

Hate to break it to you all, but dove hunting is a common sport. A lot of people I know have gone dove hunting, and it's even more common in South Carolina(where I used to live). It's funny, but accidental. It's just a thing that southerners like to do, and if there's a party, why not have something fun?

Seriously, hating the republicans, even liking them even less(I am a republican by the way), is nonsensical. People like to have fun, so why blame them for it.

Even so, knowing both southerners AND republicans, I think that someone might get shot here, if they aren't careful. Hopefully people won't go insane and hate whoever does it this time despite the fact that it would be private bussiness, and nothing to do with politics.

But then, that could be the real problem here. Why most everything be political? Why not just have something that's fun? I for one don't have a single problem with shooting doves at any time, even a time whos date is shared by an attack on the American population.

Sorry guys, but this is ridiculous. Fun is fun, not politics.

Hey if other people choose to hate Republicans for what they do or don't do, that's their own business. I'm only pointing this out for the irony of shooting the symbol of peace on Sept. 11. That's it.

If I may, I would like to say a bit more:

I think that killing something on September 11 should be considered blasphemous. It is also hypocritical in the fact that most Republicans are pro-God and they go against a commandment in the fact that they are KILLING.

The commandment says, "Thou shalt not kill". Over time, people have warped this in every which way to benefit themselves. It says Thou Shalt Not Kill, not Thou May Kill All Except Humans!

I'm not a vegetarian, but I believe that people should only kill things if they have to to survive. These people are killing for fun! Isn't that a sin?

Don't try to pawn off on me that they can eat the doves at the banquet, because I've eaten some before. Here's my opinion on it:

Its stringy, has barely any meat, and isn't worth the ammo. Above that, it doesn't taste as good as chicken, to say the least.

My only question here is why? Why kill to remember those who were killed?

PS: I don't want anyone to take this the wrong way. I don't want to offend. I'm just stating my opinon and if you can clearly prove what I think is wrong, then just tell me.

Allow me to reply to this.

*takes all the meat from your refridgerator and freezer*

Hey, going by your interpretation, you shouldn't have any. After all, someone had to kill those animals, and you wouldn't want to be seen supporting a sinner, would you?


I entirely agree with you about hunting for sport, but I really think you could've done a better job on the reason behind your objection.

I also don't have any meat in my freezer -- We buy it all fresh.

My point is not about the freshness of the meat, Nelrith, so please abandon use of the Shiny Object Effect. My point is that an animal had to be killed for it, which goes directly against your interpretation of the bible.

All I'm really after here is you admitting that the bible-based portion of your argument is rather badly flawed.

All that I wanted to get across was that the more religeous Republican party is sinning in the fact that they are just killing for fun.

But your point is taken.

Again, like Rogue said, this isn't a thread about "I hate Republicans", it's about irony.

I disagree about killing nothing on September 11th. Why? Yes, people died. People died when Pearl Harbor was attacked as well, but do we not kill on that day? No. What about the night Titanic sunk? Nope. Most people don't even acknowledge the date anymore. Given 50 years it will most likely happen to 9/11 as well. But really, countries in Europe have had days when many people were killed as well, but they don't look back on the day each year like some morbid holiday. They rebuild and move on, like we should be.

Yes, honor the dead. Visit the memorial and pay respects... but don't let the past control your lives. Remember, but move on.

I told my mom about the dove hunting thing, she finds the irony quite amusing as well.

Actually, my brother's gay and a republican.

ANYWAY dove's delicious, I have no clue why you're making a big deal out of it. The fact is that South Carolina kills dove and quail for food as well. If you hunt, you have to go for what's in season.

You know what I just realized? It doesn't have to be doves at all? They would probably being shooting clay doves. Those orange frisbee things that people shoot into the air, you shoot, and it explodes for massive fun.

I tihnk that's what they were called anyway...

Yup clay doves. The most fun way to waste your ammo. You know ammo should be expensive. It makes killing things/people harder. Why? Because people don't want to waste money on shooting the wrong person or deer.
