A Heinous Abomination

QuickImage Tags: A Moral Outrage


"The Obama administration did not do that, no. We did not separate children from their parents," Muñoz said. "This is a new decision, a policy decision put in place by the attorney general (Jeff Sessions, self-defined Christian)," which Muñoz said "puts us in league with the most brutal regimes in the world's history."

Trump Voters: This Is On You

QuickImage Tags: A Moral Outrage


An unfathomable number of children, some of them babies, have been taken from their families and no on knows where they are. Some of those children and babies are in the hands of traffickers. Horrible things are being done to those little ones, things that would never have happened had they been in the care of their families. Their parents have no way to find them. I can't even imagine how parents cope with this kind of crime.

Are they taking even breastfeeding infants away from their mothers? For what purpose is this being done? This is nothing more than torture. This is still happening. Every day more families are being ripped apart.

You voted for Trump and his administration. This is your responsibility. You broke it, you fix it.

Get out there and find those kids. You voted Republican, the party that claims the high ground of family values. What total malarky.

Don't tell me I'm being partisan. What kind of people actually think this is ok? What kind of monsters are you? GO DO SOMETHING TO GET THOSE KIDS BACK AND NEVER LET THIS HAPPEN AGAIN, EVER. Do you think I'm angry? No, I'm horrified.

I notice that none of you are stepping up to fix the abomination of what's being done to these little ones. How much lower can you sink? This has to be rock-bottom, even for Trump voters. Could there be any worse horror? FIX IT!

I was starting to soften my attitude toward you. I felt I should have some compassion for people who are so easily manipulated by evil but I realise now that you simply don't care. You are evil, too, totally lacking in compassion.

I am sickened. There is something very broken in a country that does this kind of thing with impunity.

The words on the Statue Of Liberty no longer apply:

Give me your tired, your poor,

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,

The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.

Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,

I lift my lamp beside the golden door!

Shock Collars Are Bad

QuickImage Tags: Health and Well-Being


 A breeder sent a Boston Terrier to a trainer who used a shock collar. The puppy was only acting like a typical mouthy puppy. Here is the results.

The breeder got him back today. He is extremely timid, sticking to her like velcro.

He hasn't tried to bite throughout a bath, a car ride, all sorts of handling and is getting along well with her group.

She rode home with him in the passenger seat and when he tried to climb over to her, she told him no and he immediately jerked his head back in anticipation of being shocked.

This was abuse, plain and simple. And this trainer charged the owner $2200 for this "training".

This once confident puppy is now stressed and timid.

Attached is a photo of the underside of his neck. He is safe now and will receive the care and treatment he deserves.

If you think these devices are good to use on any dog, you are a massive jerk and you can expect a fight from me. There are cruelty-free ways to train dogs without using torture.

If you think shock collars are okay, buy two and wear one yourself. Give youself a jolt every time your pup gets a jolt. This pup is the equivalent of a two year old human. Let that sink in.

If you are too busy or too lazy to do decent, kind training, then what are you doing with a dog in the first place? Get a goldfiish.

The Hummies Are Here

QuickImage Tags: Hummingbird Migration


The hummingbirds have arrived and it took all of overnight for them to swoop the humans and begin the bickering among themselves.

Day 1 and there were 3 sightings.

Normally the first arrivals are transients passing through but these first arrivals appear to be staying.

Nectar should be made 4:1 water:sugar. Any blend in a greater or lesser quantity can harm the hummingbirds.

Use only pure can sugar in boiled water.

NEVER use red colouring,

Clean the feeders once to twice weekly in cooler temps, more frequently during hot weather. Bacterial and mold growth can kill them.
