One nasty 'quack' up
I understand your desire to protect human life, and if it means taking a thread about ducks, and making it about abortion, you are being a good foot solder in the war against abortion.
The deal here is that you are preaching to the choir, and your talents could be better used preaching to the DUmmies.
You mentioned that you happen to like ducks, what is your favorite type of duck?
White Pekin/Mallard cross.
We had 6 White Peking ducks, 4 males and 2 females. They would come circle the house quacking until they got their cracked corn then they would go back to the pond. We also had a Black African goose, who was a pretty good "watch dog".
Just plain duckey.
OK, but personally, I'm in favor of more anuscide 'cause there are just too many Clymers in this world to suit me.
Hey, I KNEW these ducks! Used to get my car washed at this car wash often. I don't understand how no one got the license plate number.
He won't be able to testify for a while, because he's in recovery.
OK, I will agree that we should investigate based on destruction of private property. As for killing a few ducks...big deal.
ROFL at composite sketch.
I have heard this argument, yet I have never seen one documented study or a single fact to back it up. When the guy kills a person call the police. Otherwise, it was just a few ducks (animals-not people). The only reason that it should even be investigated is that apparently according to another post, the ducks were the private property of the car wash owner. So prosecute for destruction of private property-only.
You have got to be from Mrytle Beach..
Once you're identified as a conservative on DU, you're gone.
What is the difference of a car.. I am sure it was a hateful SUV. Or a gun.. Please.
Had those been geese the FBI would be on the schmoe's tail.
Please. You don't know this. For all you know, the ducks got in front of the car and wouldn't move. Maybe after a few minutes of this he got tired of it, had to go to work, had to pick up his kid, etc. It was just a few ducks. Bravo Foxtrot Delta.
