>>Is everyone afraid the Gov. is reading the forum? The chatter has stopped. Understandable. Hope your having a fantastic 4th.of July. If it's still legal. I've got the paper work from 7-4-1776. Vic Morgan

I can only speak for myself, by I imagine there are at least a few others out there like me. All the ridiculous laws being proposed on local, State and Federal levels are not the problem... they are a symptom of a much, much bigger problem. With all due respect to the forum, I just don't really care any more if some council member in Podunk, Arkansas is trying to ban ball pythons or "constrictor snakes over 3.4' long." If we've gotten to that point, there are bigger fish to fry, like fighting to take back our country. And besides, some of the other symptoms of a huge, oppressive government (ie, horrible education system, rising food and energy prices, etc.) take a priority of reptile ownership. As much as I love herps, taking care of my human family comes first.

I also imagine that a lot of people have just given up fighting. After a while, taking the time to write/call politicians and seeing no results get's pretty frustrating, to say the least.

As far as not posting here out of fear that big brother is watching, that doesn't apply to me. I'm still living in the old days where we I believe we ALL have freedom of speech.
