Stupid political crap your friends post on facebook. - Page 225

post #3361 of 5454
The story about the owner of Jimmy John's going hunting big game in Africa from June of 2011 and the subsequent call for a boycott has become the cause du jour for a number of my FB friends. These boycott calls really bother me, because they come from a person reading one biased story and approaching things from a black and white standpoint.

I would eat at Jimmy John's if they introduced roast elephant sandwiches

I have a hankering for an elephant brisket sandwich.

Jimmy John's is a genius franchise. I eat there about four times a week.

Was he illegally poaching or just hunting?

There's such a thing as "illegally poaching" in Africa? As long as you bribe the right people it's all legal has always been my understanding.

I recall watching a show on pbs that showed how some nations in Africa (forgot which ones) have some seriously strict antipoaching laws and enforcement, like where the federal enforcers are heavily armed and so are the poachers. Of course it's about money, i think the guys doing the enforcing get their monies from charity funds and the poachers get good money for ivory and skins.

On a related note, check this for lolz.

What a fucking waste.... How does this even deter ivory poaching???/

I would be surprised if the "enforcers" in Africa get their money from charity. It's more likely they get it by shaking down the poachers and when off camera they take bribes to let the poachers poach in the first place.

Those are not mutually exclusive.

Dude . . . if you reduce the supply of a product , the price of and demand for that product will always be reduced as well. Don't you understand basic econ?

I'm pretty sure you're wrong.
