BAN the pit bull! There are plenty of other normal dogs people can take in as pets.

Jack is typical of pit bull apologists. Everything is a conspiracy. Every poster is someRead More orchestrated scheme by the blogger. Every fact is just some media conspiracy against pit bulls. Every police shooting involving an attacking pit bull is a police conspiracy against pit bulls. Jack probably sees the black helicopters flying around his home. Have you visited Area 51 lately Jack?

Hats off to the Federal Reserve and it's counterparts around the world who have collectively printedRead More $29 trillion dollars and artificially driven up every market in the world. The question everyone should ask is, what happens when the printing stops and everyone heads for the exits? It will be like playing musical chairs with ten participants and one chair.

Does the increase include NEW and ADDITIONAL contributions to the fund? That is not clear in theRead More article; if so, then the rise is not 16 %. And, since the Dow is up about 11% for the past 12 months, I'd want to see some serious analysis prior to claiming the fund is doing well. The real test will be when the market takes its first "correction!"

The more people I meet, or the more evil I see people do, I'd say I dont like people so much as aRead More whole, but I love my dog. I wouldn't own a pit just for the homeowners insurance upcharge. I'm not an expert so I don't know enough to make a definitive factual statement. I am however, an objective observer and troubleshooter as my god given talent and success in my job. Lots of us see these horrific stories. The media does focus and sensationalize on a dog bite or attack more if a pit is involved. It is a legitimate question to ask as to whether this breed has impulsive aggressive tendencies as a part of its genetic make up or characteristic behavior, such as beagles have a tendency to bolt and wander if they get out and run free. What actually brings that out seems to be the bone of contention here. The problem with these awesomely powerful dogs is that when they go full throttle, they just do not stop, and the the incredible jaw strength is hard to defend against in a local, neighborly setting. I respect their tenacity, and when they react according to their natural, genetic response when they feel provoked or justified in the well documented dog / family pack mentality to defend that pack or territory, they are doing nothing wrong in the sense of who they are. But when they make a bad decision, really bad things happen. Lowlifes that encourage and train aggressiveness around this trait are despicable. I hate Mike Vick and hope he meets an extremely horrific and long, painful death sooner than later. Good and loving owners cannot make excuses if their wonderful family pet goes apeshit and hurts or kills a perceived threat that was, in fact, not a threat. I know several people who have pits as family dogs and they are just as loyal and loving as any other. I also have neighbors who have been either themselves or their dogs attacked, unprovoked, while just walking their non pit breed on the public streets around the neighborhood.

Cynic I have found that when I have no direct control its best to make light of it. some would sayRead More its condescending but it is better then a all out attack that leads no where , If only a All out protest by a Packed house could be done maybe some if not all changes would take place when Paul and that group hounded wasssssssssssssser. to where he would even leave a meeting or become very annoyed some would not even show up, My advise is get a group just as Pissed and follow that lead But good luck with that Paul is a very active person when his mind is made up. To bad he did not do better in his bid for the Board, it would of been a Big Fly in The Soup and his ideas might of brought change, But he is involved in The B&BBQ thing, I think as a Beer Aficionado and Test Taster, with a Title of The keeper of The Kegs LOL

They would still get lost, when ever I have a conversation with a resident there is very littleRead More interest in town politics or issues The ones with Children still in school are mostly aware, and for the most part when any mention or notice of Taxes going up it gets the attention of Seniors, and a few that just roll with them . Some one mentioned forecloses citizens loosing their homes. I believe Taxes have very little to do with that. Lose of employment, over extended spending, bought in over their heads. DIVORCE. Are the main reasons, Citizens that are stable secure for the time being except the situation. And if not directly connected to a issue could not even give you the Names of the ones responsible for The raises. Or even Care, Noted by the attendance at any Council or board meetings, even any Committee meetings open to the public at all times. Saturday and Sunday Worship Services and Social Events well attended Soccer, and other recreational events also well attended. That is where the interest is, Not taxes so much only concern for a fleeting moment, And those that are involved with the spending know that, And if I had The Money that Carousel AKA Merry Go Round would have a new home,

Mad as hell... July 21, 2014 at 07:45 am
Any dog can go crazy wanting to attack another dog but as I've recounted here many times when aRead More pitbull attacked me and my leashed dog Max. Max was no small dog...over 100 lbs at the time...and was ready to rumble with this little bitch pitbull but I saw the futility in it. Without going too much into detail let's just say the little bitch died from it's injuries a few months later while suffering the whole time getting there. Her owner was a dirt bag who didn't take it to the vet after I cracked and broke several of the little bitch's ribs when I launched it through the air with a swift but solid shin bone kick to the ribs. I can still see it in my mind's eye how it flew through the air a good 15' before landing on the road and spinning on it's side into the ditch.
