Hate and Obama

Filed under Christian

H/T Stop The ACLU

For those of you who are unsure of the religious views of Barak Obama.
Barack Obama’s preacher is a hate executor.

Take a look at this.Take a deep breath.

As Hillary is apologizing to black voters, Obama’s association with someone that preaches racial hatred has been getting a free ride. Perhaps the free ride is over. Obama’s preacher, Rev. Jeremiah Wright:

“The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing ‘God Bless America.’ No, no, no, God damn America, that’s in the Bible for killing innocent people,” he said in a 2003 sermon. “God damn America for treating our citizens as less than human. God damn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme.”

In addition to damning America, he told his congregation on the Sunday after Sept. 11, 2001 that the United States had brought on al Qaeda’s attacks because of its own terrorism.
“We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye,” Rev. Wright said in a sermon on Sept. 16, 2001.

“We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans, and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back to our own front yards. America’s chickens are coming home to roost,” he told his congregation.

Bounties and Fools

Filed under Life

When I was a kid there was a bounty on coyotes.
I think that the ears (both) were required. They were turned into the conservation department where payment was received.

My daddy and granddaddy would shoot them when they came into the pastures or barnyard. I do not recall them actively hunting coyotes for a bounty.
But what fool would turn down what amounted to free money?

In the small Iowa town of Randolph there is a new bounty, cats.
Mayor Vance Trively said has said there are dozens of feral cats, and the population keeps growing. The City Council approved the bounty, which went into effect March 1. The bounty is five dollars per feline delivered to their conservation dept. The cats are immediately euthanized.

I’m guessing they have never heard of spay/ neuter and release?
Because when spay/neutering was mentioned the idea was discarded as they believe the problem would keep growing…
I’m pretty sure spayed and neutered animals cannot reproduce, but heck maybe in Randolph Iowa there are special circumstances?

This mayor and town counsel had better eat their wheaties, because they are fixing to have lots of people jumping all over them.

The humane society of the United States is working with a local rescue group to save as many as possible.

Downer Cow Smokescreen

Filed under This~n~That

People who raise livestock wouldn’t think of eating sick and dying cows, but our kids did in the public schools. And the company that sold it to the school programs is now desperately trying to backpedal and make it only an issue of animal cruelty instead of what it is, a clearly for profit criminal act which placed kids at risk, for their personal profit.

Most ranchers are not sadists, just realists who recognize that all animals cannot be saved.
Those that can’t because of illness or injury are not shipped to slaughter houses if they cannot stand they are disposed of humanly and cleanly.

A downer cow is a live cow that cannot walk. This state can be caused by disease or injury. In nearly all cases it is considered by most farmers to be both humane and cost-effective to slaughter the animal when it becomes a downer, rather than keeping it alive and unhealthy.

Downer cows, that couldn’t be helped, were killed. On the ranch this was done with a bullet in the brain and a trip up the mountain in a front end loader to the bone yard. Where the natural scavengers like coyotes, and wolves and eagles would clean their bones.

I just happened to read this quote from a chicago tribune story. The quote is from Steve Mendell of California-based Westland/Hallmark Meat Packing Co.

I stopped and carefully reread this.
What a crock, this guy is blowing smoke up your pantsleeves if you believe this.

“Mendell also said that if a downer cow got into the meat-processing system, post-mortem inspections would have detected and removed any part of the cow harmful to humans.”

Now I have butchered lots of cow carcasses, and the only thing that I can think of that would show, would be if the cow had actual abscesses in the flesh, or had been down so long that the hide (thus the flesh) had rotted

There is not to my knowledge a neon sign that says “This bit is safe, but this one isn’t”.
This guy is patently blowing a smokescreen to cover his buttocks.
