Turkeys in East Hampton: Friends or food?

Turkeys are too large for the foxes to hunt except the younger one which would be protected by the adults. Foxes largest prey tend to be rabbits.
The red fox is not indigenous to LI they were introduced by the english for fox hunts." Nov 20, 09 12:19 PM

To hhs: Thrice wrong not quite. Wikipedia is not the most accurate or end all for facts and most certainly not for definitions. Did you write the entries you cited?

WWII- The Japanese soliders ALL fought and died with the belief if they died in battle fighting for their emperor who they considered to be their god they would go to their equivalent of heaven. This means all Japanese and anyone killed by them died or were killed for their god (emperor). This cuts into your total from WWII.
Just think of how many north, south and central American Indians were killed because they were "savages" because they didn't pray to the same god as the western european settlers. This number is hard to quantify but 60 million is a fair median.
Here are some figures of religious martyrs from the main religions of today since their origin.

Muslim: 80M
Christian: 70M
Hindu: 20M
Buddhist: 10M
Jewish: 9M
Sikh: 2M

As for Rome did you forget the christians being thrown to the lions? Have to tell you the last post was written with a global history teacher present so while you huff and puff about wikipedia citations one of my references holds a masters in history. There is an unofficial number of 809 million people who have died throughout history in the name of god. Even if the actual number is half of this, it would still be many times more than your WWII figure and that is before it is adjusted for the Japanese deaths attributable to their god.

In all seriousness though, they will if left unchecked become a detriment to themselves. Ideally there would be some form of a natural predator to perform this duty. I don't personally don't hunt, but do understand that for some people it is a hobby, sport, tradition and even a way of life. Our society takes and has all types, hunters are part of it and shouldn't be demonized for there way of life.

Trespassing charges dropped against East Quogue woman arrested near ANG base; wrongful arrest lawsuits filed

Yes, I totally missed the meaning of the quotations. Thanks for clearing that up I was confused when reading it, after taking in all of the previous gun paranoia." Nov 20, 09 1:20 PM

I don't think anyone has ever come close to that with a gun let alone their bare hands. I bet I could come close with a sword though as long as no one had a gun.
As for a knife I could probably get 10-15 no problem! LOL" Nov 20, 09 3:04 PM

See, there was an issue with the picture. The guns were totally legit." Nov 20, 09 3:11 PM

Yes, they most certainly do, as they have the right to own them & to fire them under the appropriate conditions.
As for my foot it never made it to my mouth because I didn't misread plainly written words as you did, I misinterpreted the quotation marks meaning.:)" Nov 20, 09 3:21 PM

Good stuff! Now it's Southampton Town's turn to do the right thing as well." Nov 20, 09 3:33 PM

Yes, he did. That was on a college campus, we were talking shopping malls! As for my sense of humor I like to think of it as having range. That scenario was posed by peoplefirst, I hadn't really thought about it until he brought it up!" Nov 20, 09 4:18 PM

What is local enough for you? Is being able to trace my family back to the group who originally landed at Conscience Point satisfactory? I'll rattle off some names for you Halsey, Howell, Sayre and Topping, I could go on but I think you get the idea. I'm thirteenth a generation Southampton Town resident.

How long has your family been here?

Hope your English or t least part because if you are not than chances are, you are the transplant. " Nov 21, 09 1:46 PM

You confuse fact with opinion what you believe is opinion, what is written as law is fact whether right or wrong in your opinion.

Now that this is clear,

This is opinion: The facts are that no civilian in this country has any reason to own an XM-15 assault rifle

This is fact: I believe that every person in this country has the right to protest guns and not to be shot.

Just because you believe something doesn't make it a fact nor does calling it a fact make it one." Nov 21, 09 2:05 PM

Don't forget the XM-15 rifle used by the DC sniper was STOLEN, not legally purchased. " Nov 21, 09 2:09 PM

Upon further review of the comments I see what you are saying, I guess I may have jumped the gun! Moreover now I have added another two comments to this thread not related to the juror dismissal, sorry for that!" Nov 21, 09 7:38 PM

Thank You! I read quite well too thanks again:)
" Nov 22, 09 2:09 PM

I never said I'm a local and you are not so you are off the mark.
As for the "true locasl" they were also immigrants. They haven't been wiped out by the "White Devil" as you state, the Shinnecock Indians while not 100% Native American are still descendants of those original immigrant. I also have a Native American ancestor as well. This does make me special.
Your claim of the White Devil's liquor & weapons is valid but not for Long Island, it was against the law to trade alcohol to the Indians and this was strictly enforced. The original settlers here in Southampton protected the Shinnecocks from the Narragansett Indians. The Shinnecok had a good relationship with the original settlers. They didn't truly get screwed until 1859 when their 1000 years lease was fraudulently dissolved so the railroad could go through Shinnecock Hills.
Disease was an unfortunate and tragic by product of the European settlement." Nov 22, 09 2:28 PM

Throne-Holst budget revisions approved by Southampton Town Board

Why my last comment on this soon to be former Town employee was removed I would like to know? Editor?

Once again good bye Walter. If he was doing his job efficiently, why would he be chosen for termination? I know from personal experience in dealing with him that he was part of the bloat that plagued the Town from 2001 on. He gave erroneous information as excuse for why there was a lack of Storm Water drainage in place throughout the Township. His job was to provide solutions not excuses!" Nov 23, 09 4:06 PM

Don't kid yourself the money is there. The permit process takes longer when it isn't started. He is going and it is good.

Supreme Court lifts injunction on use of Aldrich Park

Our Constitution is to protect CITIZENS of the United States not illegal aliens who have disrespected our immigration laws and in doing do also our Constitution.
People can assemble in parks, but they can not urinate, defecate and litter in them. The Village Police should be making arrests for these offenses on a regular basis. These things fall under local jurisdiction.
You say if you have a problem with the current immigration law write congress, the problem is with non-enforcement of existing laws. Last time I checked congress just wrote the law they don't enforce it.

Everyone who is against this call ICE and make complaints, if they get enough they will have to take action. These "laborers" are criminals lets start having them busted!" Nov 24, 09 2:53 PM

Not entirely true daggy, while the constitution guarantees the right to vote this is taken away from people if they are convicted of a felony. Likewise those whose first act on American soil is a Federal crime don't deserve to hide behind the protection of the Constitution that they disgrace by the manner in which they arrive here.
What do you have to say to defend their public urination and defecation? How about the littering? For the record I mow my own lawn and would never let one of these invaders do it." Nov 24, 09 5:59 PM

I mow my own lawn. Give me a break you know as well as I and everyone else that the majority of the day laborers are illegal. There aren't that many visas issued each year for workers. These people steal Social Security numbers, forge various documents. When they get vehicles they don't bother to register or insure them they steal license plates and hop on the road with us. You will change your tune when one crashes into you and you have to pay for your repair or if you have collision your deductible." Nov 24, 09 6:07 PM

I said they don't deserve the protections offered by the Constitution. While they may be entitled to them I still feel they don't deserve them.
" Nov 24, 09 8:19 PM

They had have to come here illegally if they don't have a visa so you proved my point Thank You! Sorry if referring to humans as these people offends you, maybe you are to sensitives to read my comments.
I don't know what it means to be American, now you are really grasping at straws, Free Speech for starters. Which I am exercising here. The sooner "these people" are deported the better for America and real Americans who have pride in their country.
As for them being license plate thieves go check with the Village and Town Police departments, ask how many "legal" American Citizens they pull over with switched plates. It is a problem with the illegal alien community.
You say they contribute more than they cost, LOL you are wrong. Give some solid numbers to prove this. Better yet go to one of Suffolk County's health clinic and see who is in there sucking on our tax dollars. " Nov 24, 09 8:30 PM

I'm not talking down by saying that quite the contrary. I know there are some respectable landscaping companies that hire legal workers, unfortunately there are a lot more that don't. This has nothing to do with me talking down it's just the way it is. I also am aware that a lot of the money taken in in a landscaping business is cash and don't tell me it's all reported. Even by those who hire legal citizens. " Nov 24, 09 8:38 PM

I love how the pro illegal alien posters use bigotry as a description of our views, do you people even know the definition?

Bigotry:intolerance toward those who hold different opinions from oneself

This could describe most on here. As for hatred although may sound good to you when making your points it is in error. I don't hate illegals, but I don't want them here either. That goes for all of them be they from wherever they may, yes even Ireland. " Nov 25, 09 1:33 PM

I agree but for your last statement : these folks are doing exactly what our folks did generations ago.
No one in my family funneled money out of this country. My family had the advantage for the most part of already speaking English but those who didn't learned in short order. I also believe you missed the entire point of why my family and most others came here, the American Dream and to embrace this country as their own. Many of these immigrants are just here to earn and take it home to their countries. They care not for our country just for our money.

Where is yearounder to berate you for using the phrase "these folks" is it that different from "these people"? " Nov 25, 09 1:44 PM

I'm curious what out of county has to do with legal representation as the Bar Exam is a statewide test for NY State licensing. The "anonymous" defendants does concern me. Are there names not a matter of public record?

This is a small bump on the way to securing the park as such, a park. It is not meant for conducting business or commerce without the proper permits. Which would be for special events only, not a daily detriment to the tax paying home owners and their respective property values. " Nov 26, 09 2:25 AM
