Burning Devils and Pagans

May 26, 2010

I see the Dow closed below 10,000 today.  Told y'all so!  I'm so glad I got completely out of "the market" a few years back.  Seriously guys, just take a look at the 5 year chart on the Dow.  We've actually had no real growth of anything with inherent value in this country for probably more than …

HSUS Gets Muddy

May 25, 2010

People think HSUS spends its money to care for animals.  It doesn't.  Only a minuscule portion of their millions goes to hands on care shelters and their own "network of animal-care facilities"; 4 "shelters" in that network.  Ain't that impressive?  At least when folks tell you they DO have animal s…

Good Fences Make for Neighborly Behavior

May 25, 2010

Although I’ll focus on Texas, those of you elsewhere might want to check your own state and local laws and case law on this one because the “good fences” concept isn’t exclusively ours (although we like to claim it so).

Now down here in Texas, we have a long and proud heritage of protecting …

Rubber Necking at Investigative Scenes

May 24, 2010

Now that I’ve ragged on the media, including the media hounds in animal rights activism, for the grossly inaccurate media stories they publish on animal seizures; it’s time to mention this.  I’ve also ragged on the media, including the media of ARA, on a number of occasions for their invasions of pe…

It's a RAT!

May 21, 2010

“Where I’m from, that’s a rat” Press Secretary Robert Gibbs declared Friday.

Darlin', I don't know where you come from but calling it a "rat" don't make it so and that definitely ain't no rat!  However, the simple truth is that there are rodents all around us living much closer than we reali…

Mastiffs Shot in Animal "Rescue" Raid

May 20, 2010

Somebody asked me recently what happens if the police want to execute a warrant and you aren't home.  (Of course, we know what happens if you are home.  A child may be executed by the police.)  Turns out that if you're not home, they may start the animal "rescue" process (likely any warrant executio…

Fort Worth has agreed to pay $2,000,000 to settle its taser case.  Even before that was passed by the city council, city spokesman Jason Lamers was defending continued use of tasers and inherently indicating Fort Worth would go right on using them no matter how much it cost taxpayers to fund settle…

Who Protects and Serves?

May 19, 2010

To protect and serve.  That term is bandied about.  We hear how dangerous it is to work in law enforcement.  We hear of the justification of new tools and techniques to protect these brave men and women who put their lives on the line every day.  Mostly, it’s a huge load of CRAP.

If you want t…

She Had It Comin’

May 18, 2010

Jennifer Elaine McDougall, 30.  She was 7 months pregnant and had 3 children when her husband, father of those children, apparently shot her multiple times in the driveway and perhaps did so within view of the children.  She did not survive, nor did the fourth child.

Reporters hollered questions a…

Grocers Beware

May 17, 2010

Dr. Nancy Snyderman says we should all ask our grocers where our fresh products come from and if you grocers can "guarantee" that the food is safe; if not, don't buy it.  ROTFLMAO.  The government can't guarantee our food is safe but we should put that burden on the local grocer? HAHAHAHAA.

She al…

BBHS Affects on Pet Obesity?

May 14, 2010

It appears that the Round Rock, TX, animal control officers coerced an owner into surrendering 13 animals on Thursday under threat of animal cruelty charges!  Of course, with that comes the threat that you will be named, flamed, and defamed (NFD) worldwide via the internet before the hearing where t…

Chihuahuas Join the poor "pit bulls"

May 14, 2010

Some days I wish the "big one" would hit California and it would slide into the ocean.  This is another one of those days!  And I'm not a big fan of the AKC but I can get behind their message 100% on this one.

Meet the teeny Chihuahua (generally weighing in at 2-4 pounds when full grown):
