Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, September 05, 2014

New regulations passed last week by the Mississippi Commission on Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks appear to have an unintended effect that makes feeding birds illegal. The commission passed new regulations on supplemental feeding, which is exactly what it sounds like. It is feeding wild animals, generally deer, to supplement their natural diet.

States' Rights!

States have the right and an obligation to manage their wildlife. I suggest moving from Mississippi ifn' you don't like their evil state "gubmint" rules.

After having almost hit a deer on my way to work two days this week, I am all in favor of a ban on feeding them.

so in your mind chief because people believe that states have rights to govern as they see fit with minimal federal interference, that they then have to blindly swallow any law that the state then passes?

started drinking early again I see.

I suggest moving out of Mississippi as quickly as possible, for a hundred other reasons.

Mississippi is the poorest state in the country, with the highest % of folks on food stamps. This regulation only effects the top 1% of folks, which in "old miss" is anyone earning over 9 dollars an hour.
