News that fails to amuse

  Hard not to start with this.  Actually, some coming later seem worse, but I can’t stomach them right now.  17 pounds of weapons grade uranium s missing in China.  apparently, it was passed around by different folks so much it got lost in the shuffle.

after admitting to killing dogs that lost fights or were unworthy, Mr. Vick apologized for poor judgement.  what the hell.

I’m not even sure what to say about this….people suck doesn’t quite cover it.  How does one ignore cries for help from someone being sexually assaulted?  I’m apparently not evolved enough to understand this one.

yaye…i’m happy for em…can we really not talk about wrinkly old people screwing? and the oral sex thing…welll, boys and girls, thats just about the grossest imagery since  pinhead.

another food recall.  Whats with getting crap on food, and then selling it to people?

  1. Not all people suck. Really.

    If there is anything good about the Michael Vick story, it is that there is an emerging increased awareness about animal cruelty and animal fighting. There is so much anger about this issue. If we channel it into a positive direction, hopefully, something good can come of it. However…

    I watched Vick’s public apology with my little son who USED TO wear Michael Vick jerseys to school. It is disturbing to think a certain percentage of the population is honestly going to be swayed by Michael Vick’s “enlightenment” carefully crafted by his overpaid attorneys. Call me a cynic, but I don’t believe a man who has been allegedly torturing animals since childhood coincidentally has a religious epiphany as a result of getting caught and losing his job. I hope I am wrong.

    I think it is a sad commentary that we, as a culture, are using the Vick story to compare “What’s worse?” “What’s worse”, we ask, “carelessly fathering illegitimate children, or dogfighting?”. “Dogfighting or gambling?” “Dogfighting or rape?” “Dogfighting or racism?” “Dogfighting or hateful nationalism?” “Dogfighting or (fill in the blank)….?” The comparisons to dogfighting have been endless.

    Dogfighting is one more piece of evidence our country is in need of a spiritual transformation (please note I said spiritual and not necessarily religious). Animals are sentient beings – they feel pain, and they suffer, just like we do. They are not more important, or less important than human beings, but like human beings, they are important, too.

    Dogfighting pits one dog against another until one of them dies. The survivor gets his flesh torn off, ears ripped off, eyes pulled out, etc., and the reward for being “a winner” is to writhe in pain until the next fight. Enough said. The pictures make my flesh crawl. The losers are tortured, beaten, starved, electrocuted or drowned. For what? Because these poor creatures were unlucky enough to be born a dog!

    Every major faith teaches its followers to be responsible stewards of animals and the Earth. Please help us get the word out that caring for animals, just like caring for people, is an important part of just being a decent person and citizen. If we make this a priority, there will be no more dogfighting horror stories, and no more pointless comparisons of evils. Let us all rise, together, to be better people than we are today, shall we?

  2. hi Nancy…good post…why people are trying to excuse or minimize this is beyond me.v It’s not about race, or contracts, or careers, or lying assed apologies on TV. This is about cruelty, and the despicable people involved in the “sport” of dogfighting.”

    thanks for coming by…i’ll check out your site after work
