This is the face of one of 26 pit bulls after it was rescued from a suspected dog fighting ring in Florida. The creature, safe in the arms of an animal control officer who is looking kindly down on him, looks exhausted but relieved to be out of its makeshift wooden kennel. When officials swooped on the suburban home in Plant City, Florida on Monday, they found dogs chained up in the back yard, bleeding from cuts and wounds to their bodies and heads. Two people are expected to be charged with a series of offenses The property is surrounded

Comments:
Fighting this awful scourge would be a much better use of time for those trying to figure out how many mice and voles are killed by cats.

It´s great to know Micheal Vick took up the cause of animal abuse as part of his redemption act..

the animal rights wackos only get involved when there´s an oil pipeline to stop.

Can we finally put the rest the notion that pitbulls, which were the "Nanny" dogs of the early 20th century, are inherently viscious? Yes, they tend to be dog aggressive (not always), but were bred to be extraordinarily people friendly.

And I am speaking from personal experience. My pitbull would lick a burglar´s face, and would happily jump in the car with him.

I think there should be mandatory jail or prison time for animal abuse.

#3 I agree, only I would give them a hefty fine, too. Animal abusers are in the category of murderers, pedophiles, abortionists, and devil worshipers, IMHO. Don´t interpret that as against hunting. Hunters are fine people for the most part, even though I personally have no desire to hunt animals. Animal abusers are not fine people. Criminals, OTOH is a different matter.

Anyone who hurts children or the elderly or the handicapped or an animal should be punished to the fullest extent of the law. I know that God will take care of them in the here after.

Did you all know, that Michael Vick owns a new dog now? He´s a darling of the left, who are dumb enough to have bought this crud´s phony newfound compassion.

#1 & #5
I don´t care how much he talks today .............. Vick should have gotten a lot more jail time.

He and his friends were positively cruel and heartless to those dogs and also they made a lot of money on that activity and perpetuated the horror of that ´sport´.

PLUS
He was totally unrepentant when he was caught. He only regretted his action once he was convicted and was in prison.

I hope so, #2. My pit bull, Mocha, is lying curled up at my feet as I type this. She is by far the sweetest dog we´ve ever had. She gets along wonderfully with our greyhounds and sleeps cuddled up with our 18 year old cat. Wish that I could post a photo of her.

Let´s hope so #2.

I certainly wouldn´t hold up Vick as repentant or an example - shame on you US Humane Society.

I highly recommend watching "Pitbulls and Parolees" to get over any notion that pitbulls are vicious killers. They rebound from this type of mistreatment faster than any other breed.

Harry Reid calls dissident Nevada ranchers
´domestic terrorists´ following show of
force against the federal government
Daily Mail [UK], by David Martosko    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 4/19/2014 9:29:17 AM     Post Reply
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

European Tycoon Accuses Google of
Trying to Create a ´Digital Superstate´

One of Europe´s most powerful media tycoons has accused Google of seeking to create a digital ´superstate´ outside the control of national regulators and privacy laws. Mathias Döpfner, head of the giant German multi-media company Axel Springer, says Wir haben Angst vor Google: "We are afraid of Google." [Snip] Writing an open letter to Eric Schmidt, chairman of Google, in the German daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Döpfner said: "Google not only knows where we are going in our cars, but also what we do while we’re driving. Forget Big Brother – Google is better!" He expressed worries about Google´s dominance

One of US president Barack Obama´s leading campaign strategists has been recruited by Labour to play a key role in Ed Miliband´s bid for Downing Street in next year´s general election. David Axelrod, who is credited with masterminding Mr Obama´s presidential victories in 2008 and 2012, will join Labour´s general election campaign team as a senior strategic adviser, the party announced. His appointment was been hailed by Labour as a major coup, and ´´seriously bad news for the Conservatives´´, at a time when Mr Miliband has been under fire from sections of his own party for his campaign tactics.

I blogged yesterday about this "segregated" Muslim event organised by the Islamic Society of the University of East London, due to happen tonight at UEL´s main lecture theatre on its Docklands campus. Much to my surprise, UEL immediately banned it from their campus. [Snip] UEL should be congratulated over this. As I pointed out, it has an "equality and diversity" policy. It didn´t know that the dinner organised by the Islamic society--which was to include a speech by the controversial anti-gay preacher Murtaza Khan--was segregated by sex and was providing a platform for an extremist. The university´s decision to pull the

Tony Blair´s religious charity has links to an Islamic extremist group being investigated by MI5 and MI6, it has been alleged. [Snip] The organisation has been declared a terrorist group in Egypt and Saudi Arabia, and could be banned in Britain, despite insisting they do not have links to extremist factions. The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch, which has been looking into the group for 13 years, revealed that Dr Ismail Khudr Al-Shatti, an adviser to the Kuwaiti government and a member of Mr Blair’s advisory council, is a leading member of the Kuwaiti branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. the

Deep in the flat and featureless landscape of eastern Ukraine, it is all too ­possible that the outline of World War III is taking shape. Whipped up by the Kremlin ­propaganda machine and led by Russian ­military intelligence, armed men are erecting road blocks, storming police stations and ripping down the country’s flag. They are demolishing not just their own country — bankrupt, ill-run and beleaguered — but also the post-war order that has kept most of Europe and us, here in Britain, safe and free for decades. Vladimir Putin is striking at the heart of the West.

Why are the US authorities trying to extradite and imprison arguably the one man in the world with the skills and influence to bring peace, stability, and prosperity to fractured Ukraine? This week I flew to Vienna, Austria, to find out in a world exclusive interview with Ukraine´s Dmitry Firtash, the billionaire industrialist, philanthropist, and political fixer who is striving desperately to help his country forge an independent future free from the bullying of Russia and the meddling of the West in next month´s scheduled elections. And his biggest obstacle? According to Firtash, it´s Barack Obama.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
