Please don’t feed the bears.

dont feed the bears

Don't feed the bears. They become dependent and hostile.

Sandra Fluke wants us to pay for her contraceptives.  Amanda Clayton won $500,000 and bought a new house and a new car, but she still wants us to pay for her food.  She said she has a right to public assistance, “I have no income, and I have bills to pay. I have two houses.”

At the nearby Great Smoky Mountains National Park, we are told not to feed the bears, because it breeds dependency.  They end up with the habit of coming to humans for food, and then they forget how to take care of themselves.  They can appear friendly at first, but when you don’t give them what they want, they become hostile and dangerous.  The greater the dependency, the more aggressive they become.

Among humans, we call it Leftist Dependency Syndrome (LDS).

Of course, giving free stuff to Sandra Fluke and Amanda Clayton is small potatoes.  The real bear we should quit feeding is Big Government.

    Like many Americans, I believe that there is a time to feed the bears. In a wave of bad environmental conditions, the bears may need assistance until conditions change and they can, once again, hunt on their own. But, if you feed bears generation after generation, after one or two generations, they no longer know how to hunt to provide for themselves. The bears have been fed for several generations, and many, can no longer fend for themselves. It is tough at first, but we need to provide “tough love” to teach them to hunt.

    It is close to November, when we choose if we should continue to feed the bears, or start the process of releasing back to the wild to fend for themselves. With our support and nudging, they will learn to care for themselves within a generation. Let’s start a campaign to “Don’t Feed the Bears!”
