Yellowstone Related News and Politics • Re: Proposed sentences for the High On Life hoodlums

Yeah, so much for "accepting" the results of their thuggery. I hope they are NEVER allowed in the U.S. again -- once they "get high on life" among some of Canada's natural wonders, perhaps they'll get a chance to "accept the responsibility" for their stupidity and arrogance there, where they can't run away. But PLEASE, U.S. government, NEVER allow them back in this country.

Wow, no need to project the actions of these few idiots on an entire generation. JohnnyB is right about you, I won't pay attention to your opinions in the future.


That's the other thing about these millenials (well, aside from their severe 'entitlement' issues) - they sure are a bit oversensitive...
:D:lol::D:lol::D:lol::D:lol:


Yep, they have the worse combination of traits! They are rude and selfish and impervious to others and how their actions effect the world around them. But point that out and then they sure are sensitive about their horrible traits! :lol::lol::lol:

So...I guess they won't be "accepting the ramifications of our actions".

I guess the warrants will most likely keep them out of the country or at least the parks.

Oh hey, I know that website. My favorite part from the article:


McFilson was interrupted and forced to respond to a situation involving a foreign family who had tied a number of balloons to a bald eagle. They reportedly witnessed the bird sitting calmly on a fence post and were greatly concerned that it had lost the ability to fly, and sought to assist it.


:lol::lol:

People have always been selfish. Just look at the people who killed off the wolves in the lower 48, or the ones who slaughtered the bison and left their corpses to rot. The only difference now is that we should know better.


You missed the point - this new generation is all about SELFIES and Social Media stunts - at the expense of anything or anybody. Of course selfishness has existed and will continue to do so, but there is something really sick about the current "anything goes" mentality...


This is so true. I was driving to work one day, and this teenage girl was taking a selfie while driving around 50 miles an hour! I was so mad as I was in the lane next to her, I honked my horn. In hind sight, that was a bad idea because it scared her half to death and she almost lost control of her car. I just don't understand the whole selfie thing.

Chill, people, chill. You dudes are harshing my mellow. I can't believe how judgemental you're all being. These are four bros who made a few mistakes and are now apologizing. Let's relax and show a little forgiveness...

Nah, just kidding :). I was just practicing my millennial-speak, but I forgot the use "like" every third word.

Count me among the pitchfork brigade. Some people might have called/emailed their Senators and U.S. Reps etc, in order to turn up the heat on these four guys. I've decided to go north of the border. Here's the contact info for Parks Cananda:
http://www.pc.gc.ca/eng/agen/courriel-email.aspx
Hit them in the pocketbook and let THEM turn up the heat on THEIR officials.


Here's the email I just sent to Parks Canada:

Dear Sir / Ma'am

I'm writing to tell you how much I loved my trips to Banff, Jasper, and Yoho National Parks. I look forward to my next visit. However, I will not be visiting Canada again unless and until the four men who desecrated Yellowstone and other American national parks either voluntarily or through extradition return to the U.S. to face the charges that have been filed against them. I will use my voice and social media to encourage as many Americans as I can to boycott Canada until these men return to the U.S. to face the justice they so richly deserve. I have the highest respect for the people of Canada and for the country itself. These four men do not represent your country, and because of that they should be publicly shamed and ridiculed, as well as prosecuted.

When at Lake O'Hara in Yoho National Park, I saw a sign that said the following:
"LET NO ONE SAY,
AND SAY IT TO YOUR SHAME,
THAT ALL WAS BEAUTY HERE,
UNTIL YOU CAME"

How sad that these four men couldn't follow the simple wisdom provided in their own backyard.

After this issue has been settled and these four men have faced justice (whatever that justice may be), I will then resume my usual practice of encouraging people to visit your beautiful national parks.



I'm not naïve enough to think this will result in anything, but it made me feel better.
