What I hate is what he stands for, and what he's done/doing to this country. For that matter, I hate all Marxists and Communists, and he's much closer to them than he is to us.

Kellory, it seems it got off course. The discrimination issue arose due to a (or some) particular store not hiring minorities - period! & being bold about it. I will repeat: I am Mexican. I don't want preferential treatment. I don't want to be a quota number. I love my wife (herself a hunter), but if a black or "hispanic" is qualified...., hire him/her. I, too, am sorry this "minority/quota/affirmative action" exists..., but maybe if people/corps did not behave like the ones in the article I posted......., there wouldn't be a reason for the same. On the other flip of the coin, it also sickens me when a person sues or cries foul (discriminaiton) when they are not hired because they ARE NOT QUALIFIED! I see it everyday and it just irrates me! I'd be offended if, for the sake of example, a Bass Pro shop hires me just because of my race, etc.
Indeed a difficult issue, but real. Kellory, I respect ur opinion, and msbadger - POWER TO YOU!!! Happy Hunting Season

Perhaps it is just the area I live but when I go to the city to a womans clinic every year, I meet woman hunters from all walks of life and ages...many whom live in the city and suburbs
Quotas aren't right in how far they've been abused but men were the ones that caused their existence so many years ago
