Devo says their efforts aren’t pro-Obama but instead, are pro-animal.
I withhold judgement. I have known too many dogs who loved to GO and would hope into a kennel on the back of pick up truck. They were happier than all hell. It sounds like a roof dog carrier might have just been up a few feet higher. As long as the crate was secure and the door opened towards the back, Seamus might have been a happy camper–a very happy camper. Maybe people just haven’t known enough country dogs.
The animal situations that upset me are the ones with dogs in a pickup that aren’t secured. If you are out on the road, the dog needs to be kenneled.
The Romneys need to do themselves a favor and release a picture of Seamus in his kennel. That would set things straight. Excuse me now…I have grossed myself out. I had a border collie with a similar problem in the back of a station wagon. Even though it happened 30 years ago, we are all still scarred for life. Dog, ham fat (stupid brother-in-law). very sick. trip from Baltimore. Many stops.
This just isn’t any way to talk to a guest. Hannity is a bully. Very few presidents have been vilified as Obama has been. Clinton and Bush II may be be running a real close second.
I thought I believed in having an ID to vote. Notice the past tense. After seeing what was done to Prince William County to carve up districts to produce a willing ticket, I now question if the voter ID situation wasn’t motivated by similar attempts to alter outcome rather than the intended stated reason.
Nothing humbles you like the still-present devastation at Mt. St. Helens. Giant trees are embedded in the hill sides as though they were match sticks.
Nothing contrasts life and death like Mt. St. Helens. Despite the devastation, all around you there is life, from the elk herds grazing far below Johnston Ridge Observatory to the wild flowers, newly formed lakes and squirrels that beg for snacks.
Mt. St. Helens is very much a live volcano. She continues to belch smoke, steam and all sorts of stinky sulfphuric smells from far below the earth. Will the lady throw another tantrum? Only time will tell. Get out of the way if she does!
Speaking of natural disasters, we seem to have avoided hurricanes this summer. Am I bringing on bad Karma by mentioning it?
UPDATE: This afternoon Toure apologized to the audience for his use of the N-word yesterday and said that he should have done it differently.
On Thursday’s edition of MSNBC’s The Cycle the group discussed Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney‘s assertion that President Obama should “take [his] campaign of division and anger and hate back to Chicago.” Co-host Tourésaw what he believes to be explicit racial connotations beneath what Romney was saying, calling it the “niggerization” of the campaign.
“That really bothered me,” he said. “You notice he said anger twice. He’s really trying to use racial coding and access some really deep stereotypes about the angry black man. This is part of the playbook against Obama, the ‘otherization,’ he’s not like us.”
