Whatever


One time, up near Northam and Thabazimbi, I was on a drilling rig out in the bush.  I drove up on location and all 'the boys' were standing around a bonfire.  The Chargehand was standing around and the entire drilling rig was standing idle---nobody was drilling. 





I asked the Chargehand ( toolpusher ) what was going on---it was broad daylight and not really too cold outside.  The Boss told me that the boys had found a black mamba and had killed it and now they had to burn it so that it's Spirit wouldn't haunt them forever after.  So they shut down an entire gold drilling operation in order to have a Funeral Pyre for a snake!

Poaching exists because there are not enough Game Wardens.....there are NO Freakin' Game Wardens when Nations ban HUNTING......so.....No Hunting.....No Game Wardens.....No Game Wardens....No Poacher Arrests!!!

.....only by having a Viable Game department ( financed by sportsmen!...) will there be ANY CONSERVATION!!!     




That's what Kendall Jones was trying to exlain to the LOW-INFORMATION VOTER ( read: Human Being...)

Umm.....keep windows rolled up!   Whatever




I went to a Nature Reserve years ago west of Johannesburg and got pictures of lions....it may have been the same park where that tourist got killed.  I never did go into Pilanesberg even though I drove by it a hundred times....I was always busy working drilling rigs and in a hurry....you know how it is....
