It's been 24 years since I lost my Samoyed. I still miss her every day.

Oh my, I love this. Dogs are so loyal. We had four Shelties over the years, and each one was so special. I miss every one of them.

I have a college friend who, when he retired, bought a nice big 4,500 square-foot house on 22 acres in the Blue Ridge not far from Natural Bridge, VA. He has always loved the idea of living in the country with lots of dogs and horses.

Right now he is looking after no fewer than ten dogs of varying breeds and sizes from a great Pyrenees on down, and one horse.

The dogs all live in the house, the horse has her own small barn.

I asked him once why he had decided to devote his life to animals?

"Their love is so pure, they have no ulterior motives," was all he said."

Besides keeping house for these animals, he also volunteers at the local animal shelter. He's moved heaven and earth to prevent many a dog from being put to sleep, because no one came to adopt it.

I've told him there must be a special place in Heaven reserved for him -- and his long string of canine and equine friends.

Why Libertarians such as Les of Rational Nation USA are Idiots, very naive and misguided.
I realize it is a rather bombastic thing to assert, especially when I happen to agree with a lot from the libertarian platform. I am a Constitutional Conservative, but I get into some very heated debates with Libertarians over what that means. I happen to believe we have an ingenious system which allows for all ideas to be heard and considered, and the best of those ideas to rise to the top. It doesn't always mean I get what I want personally, sometimes it means I have to tolerate what most of my fellow neighbors want instead.

To illustrate my point, let me give an example of something I once argued. The debate was about abortion, and what to do about it politically. I argued that it should be left up to the people and states to determine for themselves, and federal government shouldn't interfere. I seemed to catch flack from both 'sides' on this, because I didn't really interject my personal viewpoint. But I argued, it is not about "my personal viewpoint" because we live in a collective society of differing viewpoints. It's a matter of whether or not I feel compelled to support your viewpoint with my federal tax dollars. I do not feel so compelled. So I was asked, by one of the pro-life advocates, what would I do to eliminate all the abortions happening in America. I said, if it were up to me personally, anyone who was found to have had an abortion, would be publicly stoned. This would stop virtually all abortions from happening. Well naturally, this prompted a flurry of ridicule, and I became somewhat of a pariah, the whacky guy who believes in stoning women for having abortions. But the question was asked, what would I personally do? So I gave my answer. The point being, it's not up to me personally to decide, I am not the King. I realize we live in a diverse society, where people have a variety of opinions and are passionate about those opinions.

This is one of the main reasons the founders saw fit to establish state rights over federal powers. They knew that a monolithic society would lead to tyranny, and it is currently heading in that direction. We can't escape federal laws and mandates, no one is going to leave America. However, if you don't like that your state makes gambling legal, you can move to a state where gambling is not legal, or visa versa. Same with gay marriage or marijuana. Federal laws blanket everyone with a single philosophy, and we all must live by that, regardless of our own viewpoints. Libertarians spend most of their time in air head discussions with other libertarians concerning what a libertarian is, and neither one seems to know their ass’s from their elbows.The best argument against Libertarianism is that there are no Libertarian governments or economies anywhere in Human history. Why is that?
Have a nice day.

Facts are Fats, you can't dispute them if they are really and truly "FACTS"
And the fact is that Blacks commit more violent crime against whites than against blacks. Forty-five percent of their victims are white, 43 percent are black, and 10 percent are Hispanic. When whites commit violent crime, only three percent of their victims are black

It's never about the truth with blacks. It's only about getting what they want.

I was in college when OJ Simpson was acquitted of murdering Nicole (white woman) Simpson..

When the verdict was read, all the blacks were going apeshit,
it seemed like they were SO happy that a white woman got murdered and that OJ got away with it.

If only there were a way to exclude boilerplate speeches and all unkind personal remarks automatically, the blogosphere would be a much more pleasant and less tiresome place.

The Wicked Witch of the Blogosphere, herself, and others of her kind might as well be larding conservative blogs with this stupid, recklessly belligerent material so she and her kind can quote it at their blogs, and mock it as typical of the way conservatives think.

You can depend on leftist activists to pervert the meaning of freedom of speech in order to later have a good excuse for legislating it out of existence.
