Thanks Paul. It's terrible to see what biden and the left are doing to our country, with the help of the media and big tech.

I come from a military family. My five older brothers, my father and myself served in every branch but the Army. The oath meant something. Galls the daylights out of me when I hear a member of whatever forum I belong to bellyaching about allowing members to share the most important beliefs they hold. I knew you had your eyes peeled, Paul. Thank you for the latitude.

Crickets on Facebook even the trolls are staying under their bridges only the usual top liars are heaping praise on the latest train wreck.

I wish all I had to worry about was low fur prices but in these times where our country is being destroyed right in front of our very eyes I think it needs discussion so people learn the other side of politics that the MSM wont report.

I also think the youth need it more than us older folks to combat the lies and hate for our country they are learning in school now. They are the next generation of lawmakers.

This site comes up on google searches quite frequently. And with most of the right leaning posters on here it wont belong before this place gets deemed a terrorist right wing training ground and shut down.

I would not be surprised if the email you received was from the FBI or DHS.

Thanks for letting us learn from each other about what news they wont report. Not many places left online or TV to get real news anymore.

This country is on a precipice. Pray that strong men and women will guide and lead us from the edge and return this nation to the vision of the founders 2 1/2 centuries ago. Many fine men laid down their lives to keep us a free nation and as a veteran myself it pains me to see where we are today. Thanks for the venue for some political debate and perhaps providence is our best hope moving forward as one nation under God.

I got involved in trapping in 1975. In 1982 I experienced fur was political. You have a choice stand by say nothing and it will disappear. Like our freedom. We all donít have to agree. But silence is not the way. Thanks Paul. Keep up the good work.

Glad you are letting it go. Because it's better to talk it out than get all worked up.

Fur is very very political, look at Madana or Joan Jet or Pamela Anderson

At a time they were leading the fight.

Paul , and the bulk of the comments to this thread , spot on.

Agreed , there is SO much political crap going on right now that it infects everything in life.
Very hard to avoid it.

Even going to McDonald's shows you how politics effect you.
No more cheaper meals as McDonald's is affected by the $15 min wage and they can't find enough workers, it is better to stay at home and collect a check than to work.

I am trying VERY hard to stay political light on this forum , but it is very hard given current evemts.

Paul , it is your sandbox. You are managing it VERY well. IMO.

Some of the stuff I look at and post. I don't see as political more just topics that need to be discussed

Maybe youíll get more trappers and less know it allís on here.

My response....

I'm allowing it now because of the special times we're experiencing. That boob in the white house is incompetent and his decisions have riled the ire in those of us who care about this country. I'm so (This word is unacceptable on Trapperman), can't even express how I really feel.
If you don't like it, stay on this page. It's all trapping all the time - https://trapperman.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/ubb/postlist/Board/25


Just letting y'all know why I'm letting the politics of this debacle continue on here.



^^^ This right here is how a true leader leads. Thank you Mr. Dobbins for putting up with us; but also having the INTEGRITY to stand up for us. It is what our country needs the most. It is so reassuring that there are a lot of good men among us. You Sir, are certainly salt of the earth!

Definite troubling times and thanks for allowing all opinions and letting us know yours.


I love the smell of burning spruce---I love the sound of a spring time goose---I love the feel of 40 below---from my trapline I will never go!

Thanks Paul. I think most of us on here share your feelings about special times we are in. The Afgan deal is almost beyond belief. To anyone who wore the uniform its even worse. I was out by the time we went into the country but I know good men who went, and some of them didnt come home.

God Bless America and God Bless all who have stood on the front lines defending our freedom!!!! I love this country but itís in a bad state of affairs right now. This country cannot afford another 3 1/2 years of this nonsense.

"You must be joking! Iíve never been a registered member but Iíve been on your site for probably the last ten years."

Something smells on this guys msg to you Paul. Been on 10 years and doesn't know about the Strictly Trapping Forum, ADC Forum, Wilderness Forum, etc. Sounds like he was fishing for your feelings on the politics side of things. (I guess he got them LOL) If that person doesn't understand the Trap Talk Forum, I wonder why he been hanging around for 10 years.

All of us has a vested interest on what goes on in this country, its laws, its politics

Thanks Paul

A great husband, a good trapper, and a great steward of the land.
