Appreciate the love of pets!

pets

Good morning everyone!

One of the great things about life are pets. Whether it’s a dog, cat, ferret, bird or alpaca these animals should be treated as treasure. Their ancestors were once wild animals who gave up their freedoms to be human’s companions. The unconditional love these creatures give their owners just leaves me in awe.

Pets are a direct connection to God’s love and he blesses those who love animals. To be responsible for an innocent being is a huge burden. But the reward is worth whatever small burden taking care of pets create.  The pure unconditional love a pet gives is worth it!

Love and appreciate your pet and do not dwell on the negativity of today’s events. When you see those furry creatures looking at you, hug and kiss them. Pets and their love are what is real and not the empty rhetoric of some politician.

    Rescue pets, especially, are great companions! One of our assorted felines is curled up between my arms on the desk. Typing around her isn’t easy, but she’s worth the effort. :)

    @ mfhorn:

    We have six rescue cats, and are fixing to adopt our first pure-bred cat, a Maine Coon. I love my pets. I don’t know where I’d be without them. They help when times get dark.

    @ Iron Fist:

    We’ve actually got 9 rescue cats.

    Very true about their being there when things aren’t going right. I had plenty of ‘em here last year when I was recovering from the surgery. Didn’t ask for anything more than a scratch on the ear or just to curl up with me. Both dogs & cats are smarter than we give ‘em credit for. They know when you need them there.

    All of our cats and our dog are rescues. They are great and my dog is definitely mine while the cats go toward my wife. At night watching TV, we are surrounded by “fur”.

    We’ve no children but have never been without a dog; our breed of choice is Scottish Terrier and we’re on the third incarnation. The ancestors have been cremated and their urns occupy places of honor, complete with brass plaques.

    They’re truly our gifts from God and how we treat them are a test of our humanity; if I meet someone who “doesn’t like” dogs or cats, I’m pretty much done with them from the beginning. I’m partial to dogs, but I have had cats when I was younger.

    Upon the passing of my previous Scottie, MacDuff, I wrote this memorial. A week or so later, we welcomed our current Scottie, Higgins, to our home and I commemorated that event as well.

    Thanks for this thread, Rodan, and thank God for our four-legged gifts.

    Our second Scottie was a rescue. My cousin’s wife worked for animal control an we had just lost our first Scottie, MacBeth. A couple of weeks after his passing, I heard a story on the news about an illegal breeding operation and they were mainly breeding terriers. She called me a couple of days later and said “we got Scotties”. I went down there and it was hideous; poor inbred dogs with deformed heads, matted, filthy animals in ill health, and…a pregnant Scottie. She had her litter and all but two died shortly after due to months of malnutrition of the mother and I got one of the pups.

    His name was MacDuff and, in my eyes, he was a champion. So much so that I adopted him as my nic. Our current Scottie-child is Higgins and I love him dearly, but “the Duffer” occupied a special place because he was damned lucky to have even taken his first breath -- miracle dog.

    @ theoutsider:

    Thanks! The one we’ve bought is a Red Classic tabby. She is a beautiful cat. We get to pick her up around Valentine’s Day. I hope to make her into my own lap cat. All my cats are affectionate, but I don’t really have a lap cat yet.

    A friend of mine had one, sweet little dog. I loved the big eyes and the face; just one look and I’d melt down.

    I didn’t have Scotties as a child, but I always liked them and got one when I got married. My affinity for them stems from the fact that may parents (WWII veterandm both) had little glass and ceramic scotties (and a salt and pepper shaker) in the house and that was because of FDR’s Scottie, Fala. They were extremely popular with the WWII generation. I just was attracted to their shape.

    A bit of Scottie trivia: FDR’s Fala is depicted in a statue of FDR in Washington and is the only dog to be represented in a national monument.

    Domestic animals have the strange power to unite people of radically divergent opinions and to even soothe the monstrous; even Hitler loved his dogs. If that isn’t the very definition of a Devine gift, I don’t know what is.

    I’d hope that this thread can be a brief respite from the argument an tumult; we can all find common ground in our affection for our dogs and cats.

    Democrats want to make gun makers open to civil liability:

    House Democrats on Tuesday proposed legislation that would ease current law to allow people to file civil law suits against gun manufacturers and others in the industry when they act irresponsibly.

    The Equal Access to Justice for Victims of Gun Violence Act, from Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), would amend the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA). According to Schiff, that 2005 law gives gun manufacturers, distributors and gun dealers immunity from most civil negligence and product liability actions.

    Schiff said his bill is needed to allow suits to go forward when these entities are found to be negligent, or for product liability issues.

    “Numerous cases around the nation have been dismissed on the basis of PLCAA even when the gun dealers acted in a fashion that would qualify as negligent if it involved any other product,” Schiff said in a letter to House colleagues seeking support for his bill. “The victims in these cases are denied the right to even discover and introduce evidence of negligence.

    “My bill will reinstate the intent of PLCAA, allowing civil cases to go forward against irresponsible actors,” he added. “Letting courts hear these cases would provide justice to victims while creating incentives for responsible business practices that would reduce injuries and deaths. At the same time, my bill will provide protection for gun companies who are sued when they do not act negligently, which was the purpose of PLCAA.”

    Schiff added that current law only protects the “worst actors in the industry,” and said that “good gun companies don’t need special protection from the law; bad companies don’t deserve it.”

    Schiff’s bill is co-sponsored by 11 other house Democrats, including Budget Committee ranking member Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.).

    They are also trying to go after “straw” purchasers, as though that would stop gun violence. What this shows is that they will go after guns any way they can think of. They aren’t concerned with what might actually impact crime rates. They are only concerned with getting the guns. I think someone should propose making it a felony crime to attempt to infringe on the rights recognized by the Second Amendment.

    Does this mean I can now sue the distillery who made the booze the drunk driver drank causing his impairment when he hit our car killing my father, and putting my two brothers, uncle, and myself in the hospital for months?

    May I sue the manufacture of the weapon known as a car that murdered my father and did grievous physical and psychological injury to me and my family?

    May I sue the State of Maryland who tested and licensed the operator of the weapon used to devastate my family?

    I had never considered responsibility past the person whose irresponsible actions caused the accident.

    And at the same time, Biden told the NRA that they “don’t have time” to prosecute people for making false statements on 4473s, which is the main way to do that.

    And of course the ATF has probably set records for actually facilitating straw purchases, but that’s okay, I guess.

    It is because they don’t feel the pinch of bad economic conditions. Longer unemployment, more food stamps, oh… and if when you do feel some pain well that is George Bush’s fault. Yay communism!

    Ah. So they’re trying to push, in increments, to hold gun manufacturers “strictly liable” on the grounds that they produce an inherently dangerous product—so that anyone harmed with a gun, whether legally owned or not legally owned, can sue the “deep-pockets” manufacturer on the grounds that the manufacturer is liable for manufacturing something that is inherently dangerous and for failing to prevent it falling into the wrong hands.

    Goal: dry up the supply of weapons by bankrupting a couple of gun manufacturers in short order—while giving a payoff of gun-manufacturer’s money to some loud weepy baby-mama whose swain has been gunned down by an illegal weapon in a gangfight—and causing the rest to shut their doors.

    Shamelessly imported from C2:

    Gun Control has already started at Cabela’s:

    There was a bit of confusion at the Cabela’s Sporting Goods store this morning. When I was ready to pay for my purchases of gun powder and bullets the cashier said, “Strip down, facing me.” Making a mental note to complain to the NRA about the gun control wackos running amok, I did as she instructed. When the hysterical shrieking and alarms finally subsided, I found out she was referring to my credit card.

    That was the reason they passed that law in the first place. In the ’90s, the anti-gun groups shifted their strategy to filing frivolous lawsuits by the truckload, in an effort to bankrupt gun manufacturers. They almost never won, but that wasn’t the point.

    There was one particularly absurd case that I remember from NY, where it wasn’t even known what brand of gun was used to shoot the victim. The answer: sue every major gun manufacturer who sold guns in the US. The jury ended up awarding the plaintiff damages from all of them, divided up according to their share of the market.

    I’m pretty sure it was overturned on appeal, but it still cost them millions.

    But he got killed with Non Whites young voters by larger margins than he woin young white voters. Republicans need to stop thinking getting more White voters are the answer. But I will not hold my breath on them changing this mentality until they suffer a massive 40 state loss.

    It’s not that difficult to get a large segment of minority voters to turn against White Hipster Democrats. But Republicans are still stuck in the past and are doomed in the foreseeable future.

    Joe Biden has done a superb job as VP: his manifest stupidity and penchant for making things up out of whole cloth have been so blatant that he has ensured nobody thinks about removing Obama without shuddering uncontrollably at the thought of “President Biden”; he has enabled Obama to appear intelligent, educated, and even almost well-mannered on rare occasions by providing such a grotesque example of stupidity, ignorance, and oafishness on a consistent basis; and he has provided Obama with plausible deniability by pulling “gaffes” such as blurting out support for same-sex marriage on command.

    What more could Obama expect in a vice-president? Anyone who was not a half-senile hack content to wallow in his share of Stimulus graft would have organized an impeachment behind the scenes by now.

    On MSNBC last night, Sen. Barbara Boxer admitted that she was furious after Sen. Rand Paul explained to Sec. Hillary Clinton yesterday that he would have fired her if he was president. Paul made the remarks during the Senate hearing on Clinton’s response to the Benghazi terror attacks.

    “When I heard him say those words, I walked out of the hearing room, and listened to him behind the stage, because I was so infuriated at what that man said,” Boxer said.

    I do think that Rand Paul struck a nerve.

    You know, I remember the old “Man From UNCLE” series; there was always some evil genius who wanted to take over the world by wiping out the human race. Seemed kind of silly to me; what’s the good of the world without any of the people? But you know what? That really is the goal of the proggies of today, at bottom. They are all THRUSH, or SQUELCH, or whatever the acronyms were. Their self-hatred is so deep that they want to wipe out people—you and me first, of course, so they can enjoy the prospect of being the last to go, but they really want all the folks to go, including themselves. They are all Jim Jones at heart.
