Don't lend your hand to raise no flag atop no ship of fools

Bob Parsons: Absolute human sh*t

If your idea of sport is waiting around in a field for elephants to come by so you can shoot them, you'll get a kick out of (GoDaddy founder/CEO) Bob Parsons' recent trip report.

I cancelled my GoDaddy domains this morning.

If a pack of wolves is going to eat somebody this week, I have a nomination.

I am with you on this one. I am a Libertarian and big supporter of the second amendment and have no problem with folks carrying guns (I carry). But I do differ with sport hunters...they have the right to hunt and I do not want to take it away. I would like to convince them to stop because no matter how you spin it, it is killing for fun. Many of those same hunters were outraged with Michel Vick dog fighting...Why? Because of the horror of how the dogs died. Short of a perfect head shot a hunted animals death is no different. From the moment the rounds hits that animal experiences all the panic and fear and horror Vick's dogs did. Their brains continue to work for several minutes after the shot, they hear, feel, smell and slowly die.

Sport hunting is nothing more than killing for fun...there is no "sport" in it.

They call it "hunting" and not "killing" or "grocery shopping" for a reason. Ever walk five or six miles behind a dog on a wide open prairie and never get a shot off at a pheasant the whole day and STILL go home happy? I'll be the first to admit that going home with a bird in the bag is much more satisfying (and more tasty and delicious when prepared with onions, mushrooms and white wine and brown rice) but that's the way it goes - you pays your money and you takes your chances.

I find myself much happier in the field with a dog than I do in a Kroger's....but I'm funny that way.

This has nothing to do with hunting for food, and everything to do with a rich fat bastard pretending his sport-hunting is a humanitarian mission.

Hunting is more honest than getting your meat killed in industrial slaughterhouses so you don't have to look it in the eye.

"This has nothing to do with hunting for food, and everything to do with a rich fat bastard pretending his sport-hunting is a humanitarian mission"

Painting it as some sort of humanitarian mission IS a bunch of bullshit. They guys who do the "I wanna have a Walter Mitty moment and pretend I'm Robert Redford in Out of Africa" are on a bit of an ego trip. They are not Peter Capstick but they really, really, really wanna be. The thing that got me most about the video is that they guy is shooting over a baited field at a target not much smaller than a Greyhound bus with a firearm designed to bring down a large animal. It ain't like it takes a helluva lot of skill. So long as you don't lose your nerve and shit your pants - let's be honest, middle of the night, a big animal that you might just wound and piss off....you might get your shit trampled (nevermind getting bit by a snake while you're hiding in the weeds...at night....in Africa). As for the natives...I feel for them. Zimbabwe - Robert Mugabe style economics....???.... these fuckers look hungry AND SKINNY....if I were one of them, I'd be right there with a knife getting me some much needed protein and if anyone said "shame on you" I'd say "GFY, I'm hungry."

Putting a "look what a great guy and great white hunter I am helping out the villagers" is a bunch of bullshit. If that were truly his mission, he'd just leave the skinny brown people a nice rifle and some ammo suitable for elephants and leave it at that. I'd have more respect for him if he came clean and just admitted that he creams himself by shooting slow moving elephants over a baited field...well, maybe not.

Know what's good for you about being alone on a big wide prairie with not another thing on two legs around for miles and miles? It's like being in a kayay in Lake Superior fishing...or being on the ocean alone....it reminds you of how truly insignificant you are in the big scheme of things. It's like God tells you "You are a peckerwood and you should not forget that". It puts one in one's proper place.

That's a mighty broad brush you are painting with...

"Parsons said that the hunts and helping the starving villagers is the most rewarding of everything he does, and that he hopes to go again next year."

Where would we be in this world without do-gooder's? How did these people manage to survive before the big swinging dicks of GoDaddy.com showed up on the scene?

I will admit that I AM digging his trophy wife Wonder if they met in Zimbabwe...

I came to watch a corporate bigwig shoot an elephant, but I left watching a food riot. Amazing
