    After the bit John Oliver did on his show last week, that is actually an excellent idea! Bonus: put it on Pay-Per-View.

    (If anyone has HBO, I highly recommend that episode. The Aussie bit is hilarious.)

    No.

    You can tell someone to shut up all you want, it's up to them whether they do so or not. Still free.

    But if you threaten or utilize force to stop them, that probably is an infringement on free speech.

    Hmmmmm. It may be a win for him, and it may be a win for the economy, but I am having trouble seeing how it could be a win for the rhinos.

    I am curious to know what was done with the animal's horn. It's probably worth more than the actual cost of the kill.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    NO where did I read about the culling of sterile males. But I digress. Of course it's about the money.

    the people charged with managing the health of the Rhino herd believe this harvest helps the herd.
    as to the Horn, you are probably correct-I know that Asian markets for Rhino horn makes the stuff as valuable as pure cocaine for the weight
