    Alaska Republican's solution for homelessness: Wolves

    Alaska Republican's solution for homelessness: Wolves - CNN.com

    "Washington (CNN)Alaska Republican Rep. Don Young offered an innovative proposal for addressing the problem of homelessness in America on Thursday: Release the wolves. According to the Washington Post, Young made the comments during a House Natural Resources Committee hearing on the Interior Department's budget. "How many of you have got wolves in your district?" he asked his colleagues "None. None. Not one." "They haven't got a damn wolf in their whole district," Young added. "I'd like to introduce them in your district. If I introduced them in your district, you wouldn't have a homeless problem anymore."


    I'm not an expert on wolves, but I don't think a wolf knows the difference between a homeless person and a non-homeless person. I am almost positive they would eat anybody, but again, I'm not Don Young.

    Re: Release the wolves.

    I don't quite know what is more horrifying, a rabid pack of wolves eating homeless people or the fact a rabid pack of people voted for a guy who would release rabid packs of wolves upon them.
    The GOP loves standards. They love standards so much, they got two of them.

    Re: Release the wolves.

    Headline is a bit sensational - apparently he was trying to made a larger point:

    A Young spokesman told the Post that the "analogy was purposely hyperbolic to stress the point that these predators pose serious threats to wildlife management and their listing has damaging impacts to local communities."
    Still not sure that what he says has anything to do with that argument but whatever, it's just some dude saying some random ****.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Brilliant idea, I like it.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Young is so vile. I've not liked this guy for a very long time. To the point... bragging about not having homeless and saying its because of wolves... REALLY? How about what homeless person would think... "I have no shelter... Alaska sounds great!" in the first place?

    Would probably cut down on school truancy as well, but....
    If I blow the conch and they don't come back; then we've had it. We shan't keep the fire going. We'll be like animals. We'll never be rescued.

    Never let the truth get in the way of a good news story. Maybe they're having trouble generating traffic over there at CNN.com.
