Maybe I'm just getting old but I don't remember people having such negative feelings toward the government. Perhaps it's the bad economy causing it. I'm concerned that they have lost touch with the people they represent. Here in Nevada Reid votes for bills that polls have shown are not favored by Nevadans. And then he expects to be re-elected. I hope we have a surprise for him this year. His son is running for governor. Harry hopes he's his replacement in the Senate. I don't think that will happen since his son is doing poorly in the polls.

I'd live to move to Missouri where the people have good sense.

We are way beyond the anecdotal 'Washington is not listening to us' and 'Washington is ignoring us'.

We are at the point where amabo and the congress are actively thumbing their noses at us and indicating that they really, simply do not care. We rise up and basically form a third party out of outrage and are called racists and tea baggers, etc. The leaders call the members to congress and some feign as if they are voting no for the health bill just long enough to get their bribes with our tax money. What 37 or 38 States are going to sue the Federal government and the president says "Go for it". The Federal government is simply out of control but that's what happens when you elect a socialist congress and president.

McCarthy was right and now they are in control.

I just read an article on Fox where the people like you and I don't see any hope for the future with respect to this Country. I look at the hope I used to have of wealth (at least relative wealth), happiness, and freedom that I had just 10 years ago. I think my kids will have a significantly worse life economically than I do.

I hope that Reid loses by 30 points and I hope his son is outright rejected.

Landon,

If everyone would do that, it would send shock waves up the spines of the weasles. The problem is that people go into the booth and just can't NOT pull the lever for their people.

Which Kimber? :D I will forever have my Clackamas Classic Custom series I....oh my a sweet gun. I sold the Tactical Custom II and bought a CDP Ultra that is my carry gun. Although I have been forsaking it lately for a Smith and Wesson Chief Special that I got for $200 from an estate--in pristine condition. I can carry it in my front pocket in a pocket holster and no one ever knows its there.

Oh and Landon, my truck says "In loving memory of Capitalism.....1776 to 2009" :D Never mind the fact that capitalism began long before 1776 in America but that would be lost on most of the populus--thus the outcome of the last election.

It's all I can do not to PIT cars in front of me that have amabo bumper stickers on them. All I can do.

I've tried others but really like Summit. One thing that I look for in a climber is one where the "tubing" that makes up the platform runs side to side vs front to back. 95% of the time we are facing away from the tree which puts our feet perpendicular to the cross bars. If the platform's tubing runs front to back (the same direction as our feet) it is easy to have your foot tip or rock off to one side. I've lost my balance more than once using a climber I had back in the early 90's. That company has since switched to a left to right configuration which I feel is the only way to go.

Summit also has "stirrups" that you can lock your boot into when climbing....all but eliminating the risk of having the platform drop out from under you. ALSO....familiarize yourself with the safety rope that runs from the seat section to the platform. Make sure you secure this once you are at hunting height. Nothing like sitting 20+ feet in a tree and having the platform section fall to the ground.

I've owned three different Summit climbers and have no complaints. I don't use it much anymore, but I still have a Broadhead which fold up flat for packing in. Great concept that folds down into a nice package for the long haul into the bush.

Fireman,

I keep the top and bottom sections tied together at all times. Admittedly it is a little cumbersome when stowing the climber but it saves me from having to bend down and secure the bottom half once I'm at height. Just a thought...
