so whos side ya on Dave

right now it looks like its the "How Dare You Expect Payment From Me For Use Of Your Land:" crowd


not positive but again from memory it appears that the "imposter" is against the draft too, which sort of translates into I won't fight or pay"

could be mistaken though

I already told you that I thought the idea has some merit, but I haven't seen a plan that would actually work.

How did I vote? Doesn’t matter, because you said you never voted so you don’t know what the score is anyway.

>>You have to have written permission regardless if the land is posted or not (in Ohio)>>

This, with the exception of standing lease agreements with private landowners, is also the law in Iowa. Which drives me nuts because, for a decade at least now, they've been running a "put-n-grow" program with wild BT fingerlings on small spring creeks in NE Iowa that are about 95% on privately held lands. There are several (well, maybe 3 dozen) dozen streams in the program and some of the fishing is supposed to be really exceptional.

But you have to go through all the written permission stuff to get on them..

But I suppose it is the right way to do it. I'm really averse to knocking on doors like this though. It feels like I'm mooching or something. I know it's nuts, but that's how I am.

please don't yell at me!! but I think LJ is implying the 50's were the best economic times. my parents say the same thing, they feel very fortunate to have spent their prime years in the 50s and 60s. money went a long way then. my father worked for little more than minimum wage, bought a NEW house, and a NEW car!! sorry, but that's not gonna happen in this day and age. yes, technology is awesome today, civil rights, gay rights, animal rights, etc, all way better today. money just went a lot farther then. is it because of lawyers? I'm not going anywhere near that answer!!!

RLP, i guess that would be a pain in the butt for fishing.

I think Dick is both wrong and right to a certain extent, although mainly the former. We are a much more advanced society, but in my view, we are also a much less civil one.

Given that, while I wouldn't want to go back to the 50's and polio and fallout shelters, I wouldn't mind waking up tomorrow and having it be 1983, the first year of wild trout management in PA. Seems a reasonable compromise to me..:)

Then again, I'd have to put up with that putz Reagan and his crew of despoilers like James Watt and also the Edison Institute lying through their teeth about acid precip.

Maybe the best solution would be to stay in the present and go live in a hollow log and spend my days fishing in a world where there were no cell phones and the only tweeting going on was from feathered critters perched on limbs..

Tom has got it pegged pretty well. All these old people around taking jobs at Wal-Mart from young folks trying to raise a family or slowing down traffic as they peer out from under a hat which barely rises above the head-rest, popping pills and seeing specialists for every tiny discomfort such that medicare is going broke, taking discounts at the all-you-can-eat restaurants that us young folks have to subsidize, etc., etc., etc.

We may not be in your league (the League of Pigheaded Gentlemen), but how can anyone be out of our own league?

Great picture Tom. One of your best.
