Crazy world. That Chihuahua story is all over the news from coast to coast, yet most of the attacksRead More stay mostly local. No one ever said pit bulls can't be savers, lovers, loyal etc... as that's what dogs do. However, as this responsible rescue outlines the precautions, they are not quite like other dogs. "Pit Bull owners must also be aware of the remarkable fighting abilities of this breed and always keep in mind that they have the potential to inflict serious injuries to other animals." http://www.vrcpitbull.net/dog/training/pit-bull-facts/

Richard Smith writes: This is a prime example of an attack by these types. Note the projection of internal psychological issues onto the poster, the attempt to find an insult that hits a hot button in an effort to antagonize rather than respectfully debate a political topic. This is due to the shallow knowledge regarding an issue because the depth of knowledge is largely obtained from corporate pundits that can only shout into the air for a short time before making time for a commercial break. While they will say they dislike the corporations and the power they have over political leaders due to lobbying, they freely tune in and soak up what the machine tells them and then go forth spreading the poison in the same manner in which it was delivered to them. It is an interesting method of controlling lost souls who only want what the rest of us want and yet are manipulated into being part of a cause that is not in their best interest. Turn it off, wake up and read news from varied sources. Ask questions and expect solid answers from your representatives. If you do not get answers, keep asking, hold them accountable. Try being more tolerant of the people around you and discuss rather than attack in sound bites. You may find more common ground than you think with people in your community. Of course, this is not what the politicians want because so long as we are going at each other the attention is off them and their actions. We fight while they make decisions that benefit themselves and their paid interests and we are so busy arguing that most people don’t notice.

Well let's see here; Out of @ a 150 word post about the incident, Jack@$$ expends 8 words to coverRead More the gruesome prolonged mauling to death of a 4 year old, and the entire rest of the post is dedicated to finding an excuse for the behavior of the dogs that mauled the 4 year old to death. So ignorant and unversed in dog behavior and training and ownership is our <3 inches Jack, that he is unaware that abused, unsocialized, dogs that have been chained or confined to crates and who are let out of their crates by 4 year olds, DON'T MAUL THEM TO DEATH. Only pit bulls have that propensity. Keeping it really really simple for the < 3 IQ pts Jaqov, if you have to write an entire manifesto of excuses for why a only a certain breed of dog is always mauling babies and women and the elderly, pets and livestock to the point of crippling or killing them, THEN THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THAT BREED OF DOG. I just never hear people opine with such stentoriously tumid rhetoric about any other breed of dog or living creature or serial murderer like pitiots do for their idol. There just never is a need to to try to explain why.... FOR THE THIRD TIME in as many days, any of the people and animals listed below, ripped up a baby, for fun. Here's a tiny short digest of a list of things that do not do that; the poodle/chi hua ,hua/ spanial/lab /GSD/dachs/pom /Golden/vizsla/lurcher/ibizan hound/borzoi/pharoah /ridgeback/akita/pug/rat terrier/staghound/longdog /Dalmatian/entlebucher sennenhund/sheltie/Beagle/ border collie/ bouv/Mal/ cattle dog/ Tervuren/swiss mountain dog/great dane/irish wolfhound/chart polski/azawakhs/saluki/husky/pack of wild african dogs/pack of wolves/pack of coyotes/pod of orcas/troop of gorillas/kangal /maremma/anatolian/great pyranese/duck toller/spinone italiano/harrier/ fox hound/herd of wild mustangs/ grizzly bear/ polar bear/pod of pinapeds/black bear/puma/bobcat/yorkie/school of sharks/all the grupes in the world/dragons/rattle snakes/scorpions/velociraptors/not even the combined work of damler, manson, wournous, Gacey, Borden, Sam and the boston strangler can claim to have torn the flesh off of infants and toddlers 3 times in 3 separate cases in one week, none of them have ever done what the pit bull has gleefully done, year in and year out all over the world for over 20 years now.

Why doesn't Jeanne Shaheen give ALL THE PAC money in her WAR CHEST as well as theRead More "donations" from George Soros and Tom Steyer to CHARITY and have everyone start with the same amount of money. What could be fairer than that??
Snag man July 23, 2014 at 12:36 pm
Anything with "progressive" in it should be avoided at all costs....

Shaheen supporters will stop at nothing to distract the voting public from Shaheen embarshingRead More record. The Koch brothers are #59 political spending list. The bulk of the top 58 are progressive, pardon me, liberal funding groups and individuals. The DC court has just given legs to the law suite against Obama for trashing the Obama Care law.

The "victim" in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit case complained because heRead More would have had to pay $21 a year for insurance. As the Court described:"The district court determined that at least one of the appellants, David Klemencic, has standing. Klemencic resides in West Virginia, a state that did not establish its own Exchange, and expects to earn approximately $20,000 this year. He avers that he does not wish to purchase health insurance and that, but for federal credits, he would be exempt from the individual mandate because the unsubsidized cost of coverage would exceed eight percent of his income. The availability of credits on West Virginia’s federal Exchange therefore confronts Klemencic with a choice he’d rather avoid: purchase health insurance at a subsidized cost of less than $21 per year or pay a somewhat greater tax penalty.

MILLIONS of people LOST their Health Insurance when ObamaCare was implemnented but According toRead More Michael Healy aka Super Fun Size that was PERFECTLY OK. So of these "10 Million" so called new subscribers, how many have actually PAID THEIR PREMIUMS??
Douglas Jones July 24, 2014 at 12:34 pm
Super Fun Size, isn't the number of people signed up for OBAMA CARE, really between 5 to 7 millionRead More and even some of those are questionable subscribers due to the foul ups of the federal government. I may be crazy and old fashion but as a taxpayer and citizen I expect the government to follow the rule of law, so yes I believe the Supreme Court will uphold the lower court.
Super Fun Size July 24, 2014 at 01:32 pm
Which lower court? There were two rulings that day, one in each direction. I agree that the SupremeRead More Court will continue to support the rule of law AND ObamaCare.
