    @casca

    I agree with everything I have seen you say on this article. I am happy to see that there are others out there who still have common sense.

    It is a shame that it is so taboo to discuss feelings that are less than reverent, and joyous about children. As difficult as it is for Fathers, it is considered even less acceptable for women to have these feelings, much less give voice to them.

    I felt very responsible for my child from the moment of conception, and had a very difficult pregnancy journey to even bring him into the world. None of that changed that I did not have instant maddening love for him at first sight. It took me a good 6 months to fall in love with my son, and I felt a lot of shame because of the odd lack of information about that situation. I thought I was broken in some way. It turns out there are plenty of parents who feel that way, we are just in hiding.

    Absolutely Sapper!

    Just like I have also heard of people who have different opinions making it known to each other and calling the process a discussion.

    Are you kidding me? Idina is a very nasal/whiney singer, her voice is definitely not something to be described as “beautiful”.

    Then again, maybe powerfully projecting your voice is something you consider beautiful in and of itself?

    The atrocity is that anyone takes Sharpton seriously!

    Can’t let this opportunity to get attention go by can he? It is just shameful.

    It’s fine until the prisons are full of political dissidents, or anyone else the government wants removed from society. Making something illegal is relatively easy to do. What happens when it is you they are dehumanizing, and trying to have spayed or neutered?

    Genocide is a lot less messy if instead of killing your enemies you just sterilize them.

    Forcing sterilization on people is a dangerous slippery slope. Dealing with people who breed like rabbits and won’t care for their children is frustrating, but lets not allow greater evil to get its nose under the tent trying to deal with it.

    The fish, or the environmentalists? ;)

    Police should have ordered the guy to put the dog in the car, turn off the music, roll up the windows and shut the doors. Couldn’t do that though…they were angry, needed to take their aggression out on the guy video recording them as soon as possible.

    That dog did not have to die, it seems the officers had death on their minds. Great way to make a demonstration of what they would do to anyone who dares to observe them when they don’t like it.

    The man who lost his dog was an idiot for intentionally provoking the police with loud music while he had something he loved available for them to harm.

    The cops are idiots for being so easy to provoke. I guess we are all one mis-step from those itchy trigger fingers as well.

    The thing that makes this even more heartbreaking is that there is a possibility from the video, that the dog was just demonstrating bad manners, and jumping up on the officer to say hi. If that is the truth of it I hope the memory of that dog flopping around on the ground haunts those officers for a very, very long time.

    I completely agree that animals should never be harmed in this manner, or abused in any way, for any reason. This woman absolutely needs to be punished for what she has done.

    Our laws were broken here, as a result she does have a debt to society, and once paid, she will (and should) be allowed to go back to her life.

    What she did was/is wrong regardless of what laws are in place, but even if we were a lawless people who relied on vigilante justice to sort out our problems with moral offenders, I believe that maiming, or killing her via a lynch mob would be just as wrong. ( For this offense )My points previously were:

    1. Her being fat had nothing to do with it. ( I brought it up because it seemed like more people were making issue of that, than of the horrible action she had taken.)

    2. That while she absolutely needs to be punished for this act, it amazes me that the majority of posters are threatening to maim or kill her over this. ( As a side note, I am not saying I do not believe in physical punishment either. I just believe that she should be able to move on with her life after the punishment for this incident is over. )

    In the flamingo case, those idiot kids were still paying that debt to society, not the flamingos. The flamingo care punishment was for their benefit, likely with the goal that the kids would develop some remorse, and empathy. The flamingos they took care of had no idea why those kids were the ones caring for them, so any debt imagined is on

    Again, what does her being fat have to do with this? Do you believe it is a causative factor in her being abusive to the dog? I believe if it had been a thin person in the video, they would have been just as wrong don’t you think?

    I am not trying to be an apologist for her. As I said before, what she did is wrong, and I have correctly labelled it as abuse in my post. She must now pay her debt to society for breaking the law in this manner.

    My point was, and still is, that while you all are busy screaming violent rhetoric at her for hurting the dog, you would be perfectly fine with hurting her. (Apparently her large size makes this even more acceptable for all of you…) That is shocking to me.

    For the crime of harming a dog, (not even killing a dog) you would end a human life…
    This woman is sick… but I believe you are more so.

    1. The woman being fat or ugly is irrelevant to the actions she took. I am stunned at how her appearance seems to be more offensive than her actions to most of the people commenting here.

    2. She should not have done what she did, it was wrong, and cruel. She is still a human being, and I am amazed at how quickly the threats of violence and murder start being thrown around. Do you value animal life above human? This woman most likely has a family, would you be so quick to scream for blood over her offense if she were your loved one?

    3. She has made a big mistake, she has likely made similar mistakes in the past. She can learn from this and become a better human being once she has finished whatever penalties are slapped on her.
    Why does being fat, or ugly, or completely wrong in something she is doing make it so easy for all of you to dehumanize her?

    1. The horse died almost instantly, it does not get more humane than that. The “humane society” gases animals to death, and those deaths are nowhere near as painless.

    2. Just because a video exists does not mean you have to watch it. You also do not have a right to be unoffended, if you can’t handle it don’t watch.

    3. I think a lot of the fuss about this is the shock value, and as has been previously mentioned, the meat we Americans consume is frequently treated much worse than this when it meets its end. ( We should always strive for improvements on this front, however.)

    4. It is a shame this man chose to make a shock video to make his point. I agree with others that it does disservice to his message, as it provokes blind emotion out of most viewers instead of thought and dialog.

    5. Slaughter houses dealing in horses need to be re-opened. Unwanted horses have to go somewhere, and there are nowhere near enough shelters for them all.

    6. Making threats against this man and/or his family demonstrates how sick you are, not him. You may disagree with what he chose to do, and how he chose to do it, but how does him killing a horse justify you threatening/intending to kill a HUMAN? Equating animals to humans is yet another tool being used by the left to devalue human life. If a cow and a man are the same, it is no more awful to slaughter one than the other right? Most of us enjoy a good cheeseburger, so you may wish to rethink your perverse illogical morality.

    It is racism, and will only continue to get worse if it is not strongly fought off.

    I am deeply saddened that racism is not dying, but just shifting which race(s) are the worst perpetrators of it. Why can’t we all be Americans first, and honor the other parts of ourselves that make us different second?
    *sigh*
    I don’t care about race. I care deeply about freedom, and I will stand shoulder to shoulder with any who would be my brothers or sisters in liberty.

    “It offends me to no end when liberal out-of-staters such as yourself move into Wyoming, trying to get away from where they came from, and then pompously demand that Wyoming conform to their way of thinking. We are, and will continue to be, a state which stands a head above the rest in terms of economic security. Our ability to do that is, in large part, to our “live and let live” mentality when it comes to allowing economic development, and limiting government oversight. So, to conclude, if you’re so worried about what our legislature is working on, then go back home.”

    ^This, and something related.

    We have a huge problem with people from the city moving into the country because they love “how quaint it is” or whatever, and then turning it into the exact same urban nightmare they just fled from.
    It is amazing to me when they move in next to a pig farm that has been there for generations, and then try to shut it down because they don’t like the smell. If you move into the country and find that it is not your cup of tea, go back where you came from!

    What I find the most amusing about this is how many people do not seem to understand what is intended. It is called the “restoring courage” rally…not the “entertaining people in an easily affordable and safe way” rally.

    Glenn is doing what he feels is right, and I think he is doing the right thing…even if it only leads to making people think about how much courage they really have, and how much they are willing to lay on the line for what they believe.

    If we are going to fix what is wrong with our country we are going to need people who believe in the American Ideal so strongly that they would be willing to die for it, to even watch their families potentially die for it. If that courage, the courage our founding fathers had can not be restored because everyone is too afraid of repercussions to stand up, then everything is lost already anyway.

    It takes truly exceptional people to have the courage of their convictions. I think it is about time something stirred us to really consider how much courage we actually have, instead of just going to another rally to stand around talking the talk and feeling good about ourselves.
