There are many “no kill” shelters out there. Find one of them to support. They have networks of volunteers that foster animals until a home can be found. Beware of the Humane Society shelters and PETA. They have kill rates as high as 80%. Do your own homework on them. Don’t just take my word for it. You will be shocked when you find the truth about these organizations.
Several Humane Society shelters in North Florida have a no kill policy, not sure about any others though.
Thanks ltbdb--I am well aware of the sad realities of many Humane Societies and especially PETA. That's why I am so impressed by the one in this story. Where I live, even the so-called "no kill" shelters will transfer animals with low prospects for adoption to other shelters who do put them down. It's sleazy and disingenuous, but they then get to keep their "no kill" status. I guess I have become pretty cynical so this was a very nice eye-opener!
There is a wonderful organization in Central Florida that is fantastic at caring for and finding homes for not only dogs and cats, but other animals as well. They are a swell lot and when I do charitable giving, it is always to them.

Thugs don’t buy guns at gun shows. They buy guns stolen by other thugs in home or car burglaries for pennies on the dollar of their true value. You have been listening to the liberals so long you are beginning to believe their BS. Thieves, drug dealers and gang bangers wouldn’t go near a gun show where surveillance cameras might catch them buying a gun for retail price when they can get it on the street corner for $50 or a bag of heroin.

They buy more, I buy more. Bring it on.

Why would you want to force someone to video your wedding who doesn’t want to do it for whatever reason? I would be more concerned about them not doing their best work at my “special event” if they don’t want to do it. Take your business elsewhere. Stop trying to force people to agree with your agenda. All you are going to accomplish is pi$$ing them off.
I’m sure they were using 100 bullet clips that were capable of spewing thousands of rounds per second that were purchased at one of those unregulated gun fairs! Better ban the whole M&P series of the Smith and Wesson ghost guns.

I am all for feeding them. Give them a backpack full of MRE’s and force them back across the boarder. They walked here and they can walk back where they came from. Seal the boarder and shoot anyone that tries to cross back. The word will get out quickly and Mexico will stop being so complacent about stopping them at their southern boarder.

Who really believes these young children are making their way from central America by themselves to our southern boarder. When is someone going to start asking the right questions. How the Hell is a three year old walking hundreds of miles to get here. Who is helping them. They can not be doing it by themselves.

@rockerpeople,Onijay,Pinkfloydflo,There are many of us out there that participated in making the choice to abort our child. I think it is a lot harder for men to deal with than is recognised. My girlfriend and I made that choice 40 years ago and I still carry the guilt and shame to this day. I have taken it to God and I know I have been forgiven by him but I cannot fully forgive myself. We were meant to be the protectors not the destroyers of life. You will all be in my prayers. I know the pain you carry.

The real miracle is anyone is watching this program. Not only is it innacurate the program to commercial ratio is outrageous. It seems to be 6 minutes of program to 4 minutes of commercials. Thank goodness for DRVs, Too bad for advertisers.

I don’t think the Canadians really care who they sell the oil to. If we don’t build the pipeline and buy the oil they will build a pipeline to the nearest sea port and load it onto tankers to be sold on the world market. The Chinese must be laughing their asses off. While we destroy our economy in the name of environmentalism they are building coal fired power plants as fast as they can and buying up all the oil they can get. If we stopped producing so called “greenhouse gasses” all together it wouldn’t make any difference in the total global emissions. We already have the cleanest power and industrial industries in the world. Lets just finish destroying our economy to apease the environmental wacko’s. It isn’t going to make a difference on global emissions.
Actually, the greenies have done the same to a pipeline we've been trying to build through BC to the Pacific coast.
While I'm glad we are are building such, I am disappointed we're dealing with communist country.
Such countries haven't changed their beliefs. They're just put on sheep's clothing.
And you're right about them laughing their butts off about us.
What's that old saying? A fool and his money is soon parted.

And people still continue to sent their children to government schools.
All children should be home schooled and learn more gooder English.
January 24, 2013 at 11:08am
And the amazing thing is people continue to send their children to government schools. If you don’t want your children indoctrinated send them to private school or home school them. They are the most important thing in your life and you continue to expose them to this liberal insanity.

“I would hate to see a law where it would be mandated that somebody start taking guns, I don’t think it would go over well.”
Thank you Mayor Ken Behrens for what has to be the biggest understatement I have heard in a long time.
Come and get ‘em Representative Mahlbauer. We’ll be waiting.

Sorry for the loss of your friend. I found a short essay written by Eugene ONeill, “The Last Will and Testament of an Extremely Distinguished Dog”. If you can find a copy it puts things into perspective. A short quote “Whenever you visit my grave, say to yourselves with regret but also with happiness in your hearts at the remembrance of my long, happy life with you:” Here lies one who loved us and whom we loved,”No matter how deep my sleep I shall hear you, and not all the power of death can keep my spirit from wagging a grateful tail.
Superb comment my friend! Dogs are really something very special and I find an unique intimate feeling of love and gratitude to each of them ... We were blazed with their friendship. Have you know about Victor life?

I don’t mind you not waering a seat belt as long as you sign a waiver stating you decline all disability payments if you just break your neck instead of getting killed. It’s your right to be stupid as long as I don’t have to pay for it.

Did you read the article? It was a Jeep Cherokee SUV not an open top Jeep. If you can’t read the words just look at the picturd. You can see it is a Cherokee with the back hatch open.

I wonder if they bothered to tell the TSA in the airports or do you still leave your rights at the door when you enter an airport terminal?
