Stop breeding dogs and cats

I am writing to The Star instead of C.W. Gusewelle, because I want my writing read and not thrown into the trash “at warp speed” (12/14, Local, “New litter preserves the Rufus pedigree”).

My parents bred, raised, showed and sold Pomeranians. My sister bred, raised, showed and sold pups. But that was long ago. Today we fight and speak for those who cannot fight and speak for themselves — the strays, the neglected and abused, the hungry and the sick ones.

To help control the pet population, all cats and dogs should be spayed or neutered. And then, just maybe then, we can begin to rid the world of animal cruelty and abuse.

Too many cats and dogs are born, and there are not enough good homes to care for them. Millions of cats and dogs are euthanized every year. Visit any city’s animal control shelter or, better yet, volunteer there for a few days. You will see all breeds of purebred animals waiting to be adopted or euthanized. There are even beagles and Brittanys waiting.

And yes, C.W. Gusewelle, I do have better things to do than talk about your dogs. .

Sol just so you understand my beef with moron whiners like LJ have noting to do with race, they have to do with attitude and character. i tried to tell you he is not ghetto, never has been. Quite the opposite, grew up middle class and has resentment towards those of us that actually grew up poor and had to WORK for hwat we have versus expecting it to be handed to you.

Sol you are assuking and reading into it. I never egneralized and said ALL blacks or female black or all of any race are ho's. I have friends of various enthnic backgrounds, even muslim, one can not generalize about an ethnicity and be correct. Well the exception might be whites, all whites are privilidged and have the upper hand, nothing racist about that state of mind. I will apologize when Mrs. Obama apologizes for her remarks and her collegiate papers she used to receive her degree. I will apologize when Al Sharpton and Rev. Wrong apologize for their racist remarks. Incidentally, Gov. Palin's qualifications have nothing to do with her party affiliation, if she were a Democrat, she would have still been the most qualified.
For some reason peope think because someone is an Ivy League lawyer, that makes then more qualified. Personally I think it is a bad move to get rid of Condi Rice and proves PEBO is just another politician playing Washington Hold'em. While I get rather intense and harsh, that is just the way it has to be sometimes. Cowboy up! Believe it or not Sol, you given me some influence on certain areas, I believe we can learn from one another so long as we are not closed minded or 100% gang affiliated and loyal.

Herm proved a p-poor hire, given a sub-standard team, by a man who he'd had a connection with for over 20 years. How does race come into play? Was Marty hired cause he was white? If so he wa a failure as a white man. He also fathered a child out of wedlock, which was the main reason he resigned. Doesn't seem like a white thing to do. After all he came from a team called the Browns. Was it the funky yellow glassss that got gunther the job?. AS it was they treated him like a possession and not a human. .Was it the connection with Dick that made him Carls choice? What does a mans color have to do with a crappy other than personal connection and a crappy team? Maybe Lombardi could have gone 3-13.

I don't think you realize what a bigot position is when you take one.

Look at the ridiculous things you say sometime

This is going no where but I can't help one last remark. Based on Herm's record when hired and his record since being hired, what possible reason other than being PC could tere have been for hiring him?

solomon

Engineer,

I had forgotten you feel that slavery was a break even proposition.

It is very important at times to remember who one is debating.


Long live Israel as our 51st state. Blacks are lucky and have the upper hand in America. Sarah Palin and John McCain were the superior candidates just based on their party affiliation. You often agree with MiaFarrow, NEAWG and Lamar Hunt approved the hiring of Herm Edwards as a "PC" move.(your exact words)

Read your post. It doesn't add up to much. On top of that, you don't get things quite straight. The NAACP is an organization concerned solely with the advancement of one race. This objective is clearly presented in its title. That is surely a racist goal even if a worthy one. In the case of La Raza I took no exception to the name but did to the motto which, translated, is "For the Race everything, for others, nothing". It would be rather difficult to come up with a more racist motto. I said that, in my opinion, CP's remarks indicated that he had made his decision based mostly on the benefits of "diversity". My comment on McCain's remarks was that they seemed to indicate that he had not really made an all out effort. As to what web sites there may be or what they are saying, I have no idea. I only go to the web seeking specific information. You are correct in your statement that I have not been big on "mea culpsa". I hereby announce that I bitterly rue the fact that my people, together with our federated tribes the Ottawa and the Chipewa, exerted pressure on the Cheyenne and the Sioux, forcing all the Cheyenne and many or the Sioux out onto the plains. This proved very detrimental to the Crow and the Missouri River tribes. Of course those Cree had something to do with the problem, too.

This is like my own 2008 Award Show

Engineer,

You have called the NAACP a racist organization, ignoring the history of the group, the principles of the group and the multi-racial membership of the group. You have called out the Rev Nutcase(we agree he's a nut) but have never criticized the 100s of white pride anti black web sites on the web. When a highly respected Rep frormer SOS made staements regarding the direction his party was headed you accuused him of race bsesd statemetents by when Sen McCain said the same things post election you said nothing.

After hundreds of years of white based political dominance, including southern political parties who'd have slogans saying "for whites" and later good old moms and dads screaming outside schools yeilling for white only no blacks schools.....you my friend have never posted anything that sais that was wrong behavior. You have menioned that blacks carry knives. Ater years of exclusioanary ractics you almost daily fro months took issue with the naneb f the group "La Raza". Maybe if you ever supported a group with a slogan like "for all" you'd have more credibility.

NOTEVENAWHIEGUY,

I'd feel sorry for you if you weren't such garbarge, until you apologize in these threads for calling Mrs Obama First Ho and by connection her children and every black woman in America a ho you are by far the lowesr crearure on earth.

Please furnish at least one instance where I have given you a basis to say "your purpose on this blog has been to demean blacks, hispanics or muslims(and white or black democrats)". During WWII I did have bad feelings towards the Japanese government and armed forces. During Viet Nam I had the same feelings toward those we were fighting. That is not exactly racial prejudice. I do not believe in open borders, but that is not racial prejudice. Also, please point out where I said all blacks always carry knives. I have said that I always carry one myself. Take a few deep breaths before you answer.

NoMoreMrNiceGuy

Sol there is no reasoning with you. It is truly black and white for you. All blacks are oppressed and none ever say anything remotely racist, ever. Michelle Obama for equality of all peoples, regardless of skin color or race, sure thing. Deep down inside, you will not admit that in most urban cores blacks crack jokes about crackers all the time and hold equally as prejudice as any other ethnicity. I just don't get why you think blacks are LESS racist than anyone else.It seems perfectly fine for insults of Gov. Palin (whom has more experience than either one of the Obama's), throw insults at John McCain or anyone else that is not a Democrat or a person of "color". So what you are saying is that people should get a job based on the color of their skin and race just so long as they are not caucasian? Oh there is racism and as I stated it is equally bad from all enthinicities which derives from upbringing, culture and ignorance. After all, blacks call one another the N owrd and then justify it as a black thing. Al Sharpton called the restuarant the Cracka Barrel, very slick on his part. I just laugh at the ignorant Asian slurs and jokes, generally telling some idiot, that it's not my fault they can not understand higher level math and sciences.
Say what you will and endorse a deadbeat like my ex-wife that has not had a job in 20 years and has to lie about her address, name, spelling of her name, country of origin, etc. been married 6 or 7 times. Lived at 15 something addresses, been sued for breach of contract on several occasions, evicted, to top it off she is a converted muslim, the type that HATES this country, however enjoys the freebies we offer to deadbeats like her. Just so you know she relished the N word, as well as calling Americans generic trash compared to her cuntry of origin.

solomon

Engineer,

As far as I've seen the past two years your purpose on this blog has been to demean blacks, hispanics or muslims(and white or black democrats). You have never criticized whites unless they were republicans who you later supported(or blacks who turned on their party and picked Obama on racial issues).

Now if you want to tell us that you did not harbor prejudices hatred and disdain against asians in the 40s-70s I'll call you less than truthful. based on the periods of WWII. korea and NAM. Of course, you only held blacks in disdain because the all carried knives. course,

solomon

If a person says racism exists in all forms and racist, and then you say I deny it exist, you are a fool. If you say racism is more geared towards whites than blacks, then you are a fool. If you say that because we have a black president and a 47 million dollar in the NFL racism no longer exist in America, you are a fool.

You are the moron who cals Mrs Obama the First Ho, you are a fool. All things cosidired, the slut you call your first wife may be as brilliant as Carl Sagan for dumpng for dumb ass.

My reason for being on this blog is to learn other people's thoughts. I'm getting an earful, but I wanted to learn their opinions about events and issues, not each other. But I do have to take exception to your remark "you've been prejudiced against your entire life by the people (like me, Engineer and Rogue), who have always because of our history think less of you yellow guys". In my field of endeavor I found Asians to be very adept. The Bell Curve pointed out that Asians, on the average, have a higher IQ than whites.

No actually my W-2 shows a $106,772 for the year not including benefits or 401k.
To retort your assumption of my demand in the market, I could very easily start my own S corp if I elected to and could do it without having to worry about the non-compete that is standard protocol in industry. I do not suck of some hard working employer, I am not in accounting. As I stated before, my position requires that I lcok down millions of dollars in revenue projects and that is exactly what I do, the company enjoys robust profits and I get a cut of those profits in return for the revenue I bring them. Vertically challenged, what a retarded PC comment. You have no idea of my vertical prowess other than your assumption that Asians are all short, with shrinkydinks and slanted eyes. The only bitchslapping you do is to your [EDITED BY MODERATOR] side kick. Mano y mano, I doubt you would stand a chance, well unless you Googled first.

You're a racist creep based solely on your remarks here. You're also a damned liar, having claimed to have voted for at least two Presidential candidates, including Obama. You're a believer in hard work and free enterprise who sucks benefits off some hardworking employer rather than providing them yourself, OR you can't find anyone to hire you, you can't support yourself as a business owner, so you're reduced to scrabbling for 1099's, and if that's the case your $100,000 "income" is gross and sans benefits.

Pretty much sounds like "loser" to me, but in any case the sun's breaking out all over the Bay Area and I have better things to do that bitchslap the vertically challenged.

NoMoreMrNiceGuy

So Sol you are saying blacks are not racist and do not make racial remarks or direct racial slurs towards whites? Right.
Sure there is racism, however to pin all racism on caucasians only is pathetic.
You take everything too literal. If I crakced racism towards wealthy white Republicans, you would not call me a racist.
When I amke a comment that is a fact, not mtyh, you call it racism. You saying that no one on welfare buys the latest Nike shoe is ludicrous.

NoMoreMrNiceGuy

You need to learn what Facetious is moron, I stated I voted for Obama, now go look up facetious. Same thing for my statement about Keyes.
As for providing benefits and income for myself, actually I do. You see, I bring revenue to my company and in turn they pay me a percentage of what revenue I bring them. I actually preferred to go corp to corp however THEY did not want to go that route and made me a robust offering based on what I brought to the table, who i knew in the industries we serve, my industry knowledge, and I wouls guess attitude towards wokring diligent and smart, being efficient and being a profitable entity for them. One thing is for sure, I do not require some labor union to hold my binky and wipe my a$$ like...hmmmmmm.....?????
What is you do again as a profession or do you have a profession. I was guessing you might be unemployed.

Racism and more acurately, racial discrimination exist broadly, but anyone who'd claim that there is more racism against whites than there is against minorities is a fool, and I'm done arguing with fools today.

See ya tomorrow

NoMoreMrNiceGuy

I don't drive a truck for Groendyke first of all. Sol I am not claiming nor have I ever stated whites are better than blacks, in fact I would say all ethncities are equally racist for the most part. Michelle Obama is as racist as anyone, you can deny it all you want. Mrs. Obama has said some pretty hateful remakrs and writen some pretty racist and hateful papers. Her daughters are innocent and have nothing to do with the subject. I never called them anything, in fact they seem like sweet children, fortunate to be born Americans and fortunate to have parents that care about them. They could have been unfortunate and been born in Africa amonsgst true pverty and ofetn unstable environment, nothing against Africa, it is what it is. Sol there are black only compounds as well, Latino only, Asian only, Persian only. You really believe that a "white" aprt of town is more dangerous for a black person to be in than a white person say running around down on the East side at say 8pm-10pm on a Friday night? Has nothing to do with being racist on my part, any major city with an urban area (urban is a code word) generally has higher crime in those areas. It is what it is.
