Just do a search for “images baby elephant training” and you will see why I am VERY glad this is happening. These highly intelligent animals are horribly abused from the time they are just babies to force them to “perform”. Also read about the circus elephant Tike and what happened to her when she finally rebelled against her abuse.

Time for Israel to seize total control of the Temple Mount, demolish that atrocity that sits on it and rebuild the Temple!
This is all a part of God’s plan. From 70 A.D. until 1948, the Jewish people had no homeland. In 1948 the nation of Israel was reborn. However, the Temple Mount was still held by the nation of Jordan. When the temple area was recaptured in 1967, the Jews wept. The joy of the Jewish people was quickly dashed to pieces. A few hours after the recapture, Moshe Dayan, the Defense Minister of Israel, announced that the Temple Mount would remain under Arab control. The rejoicing of the Jews was turned to sorrow, This action to religious Jews was absolutely beyond comprehension. Jews still cannot go to the Temple Mount area to pray, to offer sacrifices, and, above all, to build their Third Temple. This temple will be rebuilt very soon. There are many organizations right now who have almost all the temple instruments and materials pre-made for the day when they will rebuild the temple.

I’ve worked around animals my whole life. No comparison; thoroughbreds don’t attack people. These dogs are bred to be aggressive. It is their nature to attack. It can be suppressed by training but the instinct is always there. It’s the same as a Border Collie being bred to herd. They will herd whatever is available, and if the only thing available is a child, they will herd them. That’s why they end up in rescue. It never fails to amaze me how people stupidly refuse to recognize the danger of Pit Bulls.

I agree, and I’ve faced a lot of “heat” from other people about it… I’ve lived long enough now to have seen children who were “different” grow up and turn out gay. I’ve also had close friends who were gay. And from my experience, while there may be some who “experiment” or such, truly being “gay” is not a choice, you’re born that way.

I raise pigs… so I know pigs. A baby pig is quite cute, but they grow quickly into big, strong, demanding creatures that care only about their next meal. I would never sell or recommend a pig as a pet…I’m sitting here trying to picture a pig as an “emotional support animal”. You have got to be kidding me. Excuse me while I go fry some more bacon…

As a chicken breeder, I can tell you that the “broilers” of today are the result of a two step hybridization process from closely guarded parent bird strains. Basically they are the result of crossing a White Rock chicken with a White Cornish hence the “Cornish x Rock” name, but it isn’t that simple. The resulting chicks grow to broiler size in 6 weeks. The females of the same birds butchered at 4 weeks are “Cornish Game Hens”. While many mistakenly think these chickens are given growth hormones to produce their extraordinary rate of growth, they are not.. They are however given feed laced with antibiotics their entire short life. Their lives are quite miserable, the birds grow at such a rate their legs cannot support them. They stand only long enough to eat and drink, then sink down. Sometimes they topple over on their back and cannot right themselves. Sometimes they have heart attacks. On our farm, we’ve started raising purebred Standard White Cornish. They grow much slower, but are still a very meaty bird that will breed naturally… and we think taste like real chicken; not mush meat.
Yea, that's why I didn't get any more after the first time. Broke my heart to watch them try to walk when they reached that weight. I'll stick with all the "ornamentals". I just love the fluffy little round coachins of all kinds, especially the Birchen. The Jersey Giants are doing well with their weight to bone strength and they lay light brown eggs so I think I'll stick there. When I need a few more I take the eggs and stick them under a broody Silkie or one of the Phoenix. They will hatch any egg when they go broody.

To quote Field of Dreams, baseball has marked the passage of time. Baseball was in days long past our national pastime, when life and it’s living were relished and enjoyed at a slow and reasonable pace. Baseball is a thinking man’s game… trouble is, people don’t think anymore. In a hurry up, gotta have it now world, there is no room for an ethereal game like baseball. Baseball is perfect. You start messing with perfection, you ruin it… So very sad.
Then we should have never stopped Cobb from sharpening his cleats or making baseballs uniform from one to the other or stopping the spit ball or mandating helmets.
As a former ball player, a fan, and a coach for Pony baseball, I admit the game gets annoyingly boring waiting for all the "strategy". If it's that important, watch a chess match.
I don't agree with how these rules are written, but the idea seems ok.
At a big league ball park the game doesn't seem to drag unless nobody is getting runs. On tv, it just drags endlessly.
I sorely miss listening to the radio with my grandpa the days of Vin Scully calling the Dodger games.

The world is melting down and THIS is on the Blaze? This happens all the time. This is NOT what I am here for!

LOL!!! It wasn’t Moses who parted the sea… These servants of the Evil One will find out soon enough who is the True God. Every knee will bow and every tongue proclaim that Yeshua/Jesus Christ is Lord!

This is ridiculous… I worked for a veterinarian. We put animals down every day with injections. It was simple and fast and usually appeared to be painless. Death took only a few seconds, usually before the injection was finished. Animals as large as horses are put down this way. ???

I agree! Somewhere along the way art went back into a dark age. In college as an art major I quickly learned there are a LOT of people who want to be artists… only problem is they have no talent! So they do “modern” art, abstract, non-representational, or like this; the absurd.
July 3, 2014 at 7:00am
Having been a full time self employed never gotten a cent except for what I earned artist for over 30 years… This is NOT art.

I don’t know about Erythritol, but Xylitol; another sugar alcohol is highly toxic to dogs and cats. Their bodies react to it as if it is sugar causing insulin production. The insulin then causes a fatal low blood sugar. Maybe a similar metabolic reaction is happening in the flies…?
So, which organ in the insect would create the insulin?

A really embarrassing typo yes, but news and what I want to see on the Blaze? NO!!!!!!!!!

Sadly yes…. just look at what happened to Brannon in NC. It will take a crisis to wake people up into thinking about who they are voting for, instead of just who’s name is at the top of the ballot or who’s roadside signs they saw the most…. but then it will be too late.

The Left has it all planned. They fielded Obama for president, someone with the worst credentials of any candidate in history, but were certain of him being elected because America would vote to elect the first black president for no other reason except he is black. Now they will do the same with Clinton, and I fear this shrew will actually be elected by America, whilst patting each other on the back for electing the first woman president. The majority of people in this country are that apathetic, naive and stupid.
