Guns For The Blind

What do blind folks and politicians have in common? A case of the blind leading the blind is what many officials are saying.

Lawmakers in Texas are hoping to pass a bill allowing non-sighted people to go off into the woods with guns to hunt like sighted people.

One big supporter of the proposed legislation is Vice President Dick Chaney who says this will allow him to have a distinct advantage on the playing field.

While many folks are split on this bill, half of which who can see the point and the other half who can't, officials in Texas say that it is already becoming a boon for their employment industry.

"We've hired nearly 1,400 new employees whose specific skills include speech and cognitive therapy," said a spokesman of the Better Business bureau. "They've been deployed out in the field and are currently coaching all the various animals to give these blind hunters subtle clues to their location including calling out 'Over Here' and 'Marco'."

The sad part is, legislation allowing blind hunters was passed (with little national fanfare) here in Michigan last year.
I guess that blind hunters in Texas are national news, esp with Dickie on the loose.
