This is all about the ALEC agenda. Just look at what Brownback has done to Kansas. Walker is not in office to help make things better for the residents in Wisconsin. He is there to carry out the directives of ALEC and the Koch brothers. Making it worse is great for them. Then the wealthy can buy for pennies on the dollar and privatize all services and make oodles of profits from doing such.
So sez the biggest tools in the gop tool box.
The comparison is that hunters hire guides to find the animals to kill. It isn't all cut and dried.There was a hunter in Alaska a few years ago that shot a large brown bear, He had a permit to shoot it. He had a guide that he paid. He shot the bear, Then Fish & Wildlife decided that it was a Polar Bear, even though it was a light brown. Polar bears and Brown Bears aren't supposed to breed together. It went all the way to doing DNA testing that proved that Brown bears will breed with Polar Bears if the Polar Bears can't get on the ice when there is no ice to get on.Nothing is ever as easy as it seems. In Alaska or anywhere else, no one gets rich hunting, or doing guided hunting. If Zimbabwe did as good or a job as Alaska controlling their resources, this would be a no start story. There's something in US Law about "Intent". Did this hunting dentist leave Minnesota with the expressed intent of shooting Cecil The Lion? Of did he make arrangements with local and legal guides and did he have all the required permits to hunt. Did he have a REASONABLE expectation that the people that he hired and paid would have all the proper paperwork and follow all National and Local regulations? They do these paid hunts all over the USA. In Georgia, USA, want to shoot wild pigs? Come on down. Or, go to Pennsylvania and shoot deer. Where I lived in Massachusetts, they had the largest deer per square mile in the state. The Tree Huggers wanted someone to bring in "Professional Hunters" to thin the herd. WHY? When people would pay big money to come from all over the USA to hunt deer, stay in lodging houses, eat out and drink? And it doesn't cost the State any money. They all buy licenses. Then, there's fishing.
I agree, Warren or any true progressive would be much preferred but if it is to be by seniority, then Durbin is the better choice over Schumer. Durbin is not as big a war hawk.
