    Perhaps it just became official, but that was quite evident by October 2008.

I didn't mean to say, at all, that you dislike animals or whatever. I'm just aware that your one of those people who likes people better than animals, you weirdo.

    Believe me, I am well aware of this affliction I have as an animal lover, especially a right wing animal lover and when I say that someone does not see animals the way I do, it likely means they have the healthier perspective.

    I will say though, that of course, women and children being executed is far worse and far more worthy of concern but if that's your standard, well like 99.5% of what's posted here shouldn't concern you either.

    No offense taken.

    Yeah, that's true, but honestly I think a LOT of the time, we Americans get bent out of shape over things that are really kind of trivial.... then fail to get appropriately pissed off about things that REALLY ought to have us up in arms.

    I'm guilty of it too at times. It comes from living in a fabulously wealthy, incredibly safe and pampered culture as we do... even those of us who are not wealthy and think we've got it hard... well we've got it a lot better than about 80-90% of the world don't we...


    Edited to add: "celebutician" is a new word, I just made it. It is a combo of politician and celebrity, like celebutart or celebutant (ie Brittany, Kardashians). Look for it in next year's Webster's Dictionary.

    Perhaps, but I just do not see enough to get upset about. This is a non-issue that would have even less interest if it was someone other than Palin's kid stepping on a dog.

    I haven't seen any Sarah Palin haters going off on her in this thread up to your post which accuses that.
    Just the opposite--known liberals seem to be having more compassion for her than known conservatives.

    Now, the purpose of the OP may have been to elicit responses you mention from liberals--I don't know.
    As one who has rarely supported Mrs. Palin on anything, I'm sure this was a bright moment for her with a down syndrome son and I support her posting .

    Indeed we do. How much of the world's working class would prefer to live in "poverty" as we define it here?

    Pic is at the link (which I'll include). So why put this in Polls? I'm curious if the story, to put it bluntly, pisses you off because I gotta admit, as an animal fan, most especially dogs, it kinda pisses me off. Not at the kid, of course, but I know, if it were me, I'd teach my kid to not stand on the family dog.

    Sorry about the weird font and sizing. It did something weird when I copied the quote.

    Attaching poll.

    It does not bother me for two reasons

    One little kids and dogs play together all the time, i've seen toddlers and little kids riding on the backs of dogs like horses at times. Kids can play rough and dogs can usually take it.

    To the dog it is a living breathing being, it can choose to get up and walk away at any time he wants.

    I've told the story before on the forums but I'll tell it again, near where I grew up in Kitsap County Washington, A guy who owned a little farmer had a dog, The dog watched over the chickens both day and night and when it came time to sleep he would climb on top of a big pile of gravel in front of the chicken coop. Rain sleet or shine the dog would be there resting on his gravel pile, well area next to his farm gets developed new suburbanites move-in, one of them takes exception to the dog sleeping on top of a giant pile of gravel so she complains to get sap County Humane Society, they send someone out to chastise the old man for the fact that the dog is sleeping in the rain on top of a pile of gravel, so the farmer gets a little worried he goes and builds a nice new dog house in front of the house and the gravel pile for the dog to sleep in, and lo and behold after expending all that work and money the dog house was empty and in the rain the dog to be sleeping at night on top of the pile of gravel. I understand the fact that many people are dog lovers I'm a dog lover myself I love animals but let's keep things in context animals know how to take care of themselves for the most part

    No, pretty much the only thing that "pisses me off" would be the number of people in the country that lack discernment and think she is a legitimate political leader. Fortunately, it appears that her 15 minutes of fame, which ran way too long, are finally winding down and she can take her place next to her twin sister, Tonya Harding, in American lore.

    Thanks for post the Palin thread, we haven't had a good chance to kick her in quite some time.

    I had to do none because it's mixed feelings for me. First thing I had to do was remove Palin's name from my mind, because it shouldn't matter whose dog it is. Second, I had to think what I would think if I just saw it randomly. I'm going to say that no, the picture itself does not anger me and maybe someone should try to tell the kid not to stand on the dog.
