I understand the concern of vicious dogs. My sister-in-law is a specialty surgeon who is called in frequently to reconstruct and repair the faces of children who have been savaged. However, It is entirely ridiculous to have Big State get so up front and personal, intrusive perhaps?

It is well known some breeds are more prone to violence than others because it has been bred into them just as others have been for love of pulling, running, herding, etc. Let those breeds be the ones that carry the extra work and cost.

I can already hear the pitbull and rottie fans screaming for my head! "But my rottie is so gentle around our babies!" Shrugs. My sister in law's work in this field has dropped considerably since the law became involved so there is something to be said for that approach.

Or perhaps zero tolerance for an attack dog on humans. Added to heavy fines or cost of treatment if necessary would stop that nonsense. Of course the testing IS another good cash grab and could be stepped up in the future to make dog ownership an offense in the future.

Think about it.

Every dog owner will have to take a costly ‘competence test’ to prove they can handle their pets, under new Government proposals designed to curb dangerous dogs.

The vast majority of dogs who bite belong to the victim’s family or friends. Contrary to what you’ve read in the news, most dog bites come where and when we least expect them. From good dogs. In our own homes.

People who report dog bites often say that the bite was ‘completely unexpected’. When they describe the dog that bit them (or their child or their friend) the first thing they’ll do is tell you what a great dog he is.

Owners of all breeds would also have to buy third-party insurance in case their pet attacked someone, and pay for the insertion of a microchip in their animal recording their name and address.

Mrs. Bibi, an 82 year old pensioner on a low fixed income should pay for her lap dog and sole companion, Millicent, who never leaves her side?

The proposals are among a range of measures to overhaul dog laws in England and Wales being considered by senior Ministers, who are expected to announce a public consultation within weeks.

But critics said responsible dog owners would be penalized by yet more red tape and higher bills ~ one expert estimated the extra costs at £60 or more ~ while irresponsible owners of dangerous dogs would just ignore the measures.

Our society seems to have forgotten that the goodness of a dog won’t stop him from biting. Responsibility on the part of the people who own and interact with him does. Even the smallest teacup poodle carries within him the genes of his ancestors,the wolf.

They added that genuine dog lovers could end up paying for efforts to control a small number of ‘devil dogs’ that terrorized socially deprived areas.

Did someone mention "devil dogs" in "deprived areas"? In Abu Ghraib, soldiers used dogs to terrify Muslims most of whom already fear dogs. Dog handlers reportedly had contests to see who could make the most prisoners urinate out of fear. Were these beasts insured?

The RSPCA said last night it would welcome a review of legislation which has failed to curb the numbers of dangerous dogs that can attack, and sometimes kill, children and adults.

Most good dogs routinely endure the following aggravations;

“The kids chased him around all the time and it never bothered him before.”

“He never used to care when we grabbed him.”

“We always encouraged him to bark at the door, we never imagined he’d actually bite someone.”

“But we didn’t know he was injured and it hurt when we touched him there.”

Our western culture endows dogs with human virtues and denies them our vices, and that twisted ideal leaves us with good dogs that unexpectedly do bad things. People love their dogs for the good things they do and excuse them for the not-so-good. This gives them a false sense of security and leads to a lack of supervision and training.

But a spokesman for the charity added: ‘We would not support anything that would hit sensible owners while failing to police those who are a danger.’

A government source said the proposals, contained in a confidential document headed Consultation On Dangerous Dogs, have been drawn up by the Department for Environment, Farming and Rural Affairs (Defra).

They follow mounting public concern about the spate of serious injuries and deaths inflicted by dogs.

It is the owners, not the dogs at fault of course. Have a zero tolerance attitude put into place. Unless the dog is protecting its home from attackers or such things, fine the owner heavily, put the beast down, and they will learn responsibility quickly. Why should all be punished on behalf of the few?

Police figures show an increase in the number of ‘status’ dogs used to intimidate or threaten others. According to the last available figures, there were 703 convictions for dangerously out of control dogs in 2007 ~ up from 547 in 2004.

Under the proposals, would-be owners would have to show they had a basic understanding of their dogs before being allowed to keep one.

The document says: ‘There have been suggestions for a competency test for all or some dog owners, akin to the driving theory test.’

But the document admits the cost of setting up such a scheme to cover Britain’s six million dog owners ‘is likely to be prohibitive’, and would have to be met by either charging for the test or by imposing a dog licence fee. Moreover, the officials concede that there were disagreements over what would constitute competence in looking after and controlling a dog.

Taking the lead: The proposals are among a range of measures to overhaul dog laws

Third-party insurance would be less contentious, as owners of certain breeds of dogs are already required to take out such cover.

After showing flagrant disregard for the trees who died to make tp, Mitzi was threatened with being hauled up before the "Master was not Competent" court. She learned her lesson.

It is also included in the pet insurance taken out by owners to cover unforeseen vets’ bills and it can be bought for a little as £5, though it will be more expensive for larger and more powerful breeds.

In addition, many owners have had microchips implanted in the necks of their dogs ~ a process that costs about £30.

Other proposals due to be floated by the Government include giving the police and local authorities the power to impose Asbos on the owners of unruly dogs, and extending the law to cover attacks everywhere.

At the moment, dogs which attack people on private property where they are allowed to be are exempt from the law, despite the complaints from injured postmen.

There are also plans to boost the enforcement powers of police, the courts and local authorities.


As part of the proposed overhaul, all dog laws, including the Dangerous Dog Act 1991, often cited as an example of poorly drawn-up ‘knee jerk’ legislation, could be incorporated into a single law.

An RSPCA spokesman said: ‘We welcome a review but the problem is that while responsible owners will abide by the rules, inevitably you are going to get a fraternity that does not. There are always people who will buy a dog from their mate in a pub and won’t tell the authorities.

Can you imagine a criminal going in for testing because he keeps a few dogs honed and on edge constantly to commit robbery? Or the chap who has the illegal dog fight business?

‘So the danger is that sensible owners will be out of pocket while irresponsible dog owners will ignore any new rules unless the policing of them is rigorous.’

He said, for example, that while the RSPCA encouraged the use of microchips, the system relied on owners keeping the information up to date.

‘It is no good finding an aggressive dog roaming the streets, perhaps having attacked someone, and going to the address on the microchip to find that the owner hasn’t lived there for years,’ he said.

Reality Bite: "This was a pretty frightening scene in Mumbai ~ the biggest pack of street dogs I have seen gathered at the abattoir eating offal left on the ground. I felt pretty threatened as there were about 50 big healthy mean looking dogs!"~ photographer Devocean

The Kennel Club said that it was in favour of measures to promote responsible dog ownership, but that the competence tests sounded impractical.

A spokesman for Defra said: ‘We do not comment on leaked documents.

When I got my first dog, I considered her as a child. And over the course of training her to be an obedient trustworthy companion, I used the same techniques that I ended up using on my children when they were very young.

Consistency on EVERYTHING. If you want the dog to learn to sit at curbs instead of running into the street, you cannot let one instance go by or the dog figures the rule does not hold.

The same applies to children. Common sense, consistency, patience, rewards of affection and the occasional tasty treat, all of these things work well for both. Although the advantage of a dog is they do not grow up to be teenagers and.. bonus... they housetrain much more quickly!




How to keep a good dog from going bad:

Supervise ALL interactions between preschool children and dogs.

Teach children to respect dogs. Set aside a ‘time out’ location (like a crate or laundry room) that the dog can go to when it doesn’t want to be with the kids.

Enforce a ‘leave the dog alone’ rule when the dog is there.

Don’t allow children to tease or harass the dog and discourage rough play.

Obey leash laws. Keep your dog safely in your home, on your property or under your supervision at all times.

Pay attention to your dog’s health. If he seems crabby or lethargic, take him in for a checkup even if nothing obvious is wrong with him.

Don’t force your dog to accept the attention of strangers (including the four-legged ones). Not all dogs are social butterflies. You don’t let every person you meet hug you or paw at you ~ why should your dog?

Train your dog. Training creates a common language and strengthens the bond between you and your dog. It does NOT turn a dog into a mindless robot.

Just as with children, rules and boundaries create predictability in a dog’s world. Predictability reduces anxiety, and reducing anxiety decreases aggression.

Don’t let your dog fence fight. Don’t let him lunge and bark at people or dogs when you go for a walk.

Don’t let him charge the door, windows or gate when visitors approach. When your dog does these things he’s not protecting you, he’s expressing his own insecurity.





Environmental warfare is defined as the intentional modification or manipulation of the natural ecology, such as climate and weather, earth systems such as the ionosphere, magnetosphere, tectonic plate system, and/or the triggering of seismic events (earthquakes) to cause intentional physical, economic, and psycho-social, and physical destruction to an intended target geophysical or population location, as part of strategic or tactical war." (Eco News)

"Others are engaging even in an eco type of terrorism, whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes or volcanoes remotely, through the use of electromagnetic waves." American Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen, April 1997. Big surprise! Presumably Cohen already knew that a nuclear weapon generates what he refers to obliquely as "electromagnetic waves".

What you have here is the USGS chart of Worldwide Deadly & Destructive Earthquakes over the past 100 years. Isn't it interesting that we've had a HUGE spike in deadly and destructive earthquakes since the invention of HAARP? Coincidence? You be the judge.


The 8.8 magnitude earthquake that struck off coastal Chile in the early hours of the morning is one of the biggest temblors anywhere in more than a century.

Data from the U.S. Geological Survey suggests that the Chile quake tied in fifth place with an 8.8 quake that hit Ecuador and Bolivia in 1906. Only four quakes have been bigger since 1900. The largest was a 9.5 magnitude event that struck Chile in 1960, causing 1,655 fatalities, leaving 2 million homeless, and triggering a tsunami that killed people in Hawaii, Japan and the Philippines.

"This was a big one," said Harley Benz, scientist in charge of the USGS's National Earthquake Information Center in Golden, Colo., which monitors global quake activity in real time. "The Chile quake released 500 times more energy than the quake that hit Haiti."

Rescue workers help an injured woman in Concepcion, Chile, some 300 miles outside of Santiago. Early estimates tally the death toll at 300 and the number of damaged homes at 1.5 million.

Breaking News today, Lori Price, Managing Editor of Citizens for Legitimate Government (CLG) has implied with one word in brackets that HARRP could have been involved in Chile's monumental 8.8 earthquake. CLG highlighting HAARP today concurs with a growing number of scientists and the public aware of the HAARP weapon of mass destruction and its geoengineering capacity to trigger "natural disasters" for imperialist political gain.

Price reports:

Massive earthquake strikes Chile

27 Feb 2010

A massive earthquake with an initial magnitude of 8.8 has struck central Chile. The quake struck at 0634 GMT about 91km (56 miles) north-east of the city of Concepcion and 317km south-west of the capital, Santiago.

Buildings in Santiago were reported to have shaken for between 10 and 30 seconds, with the loss of electricity and communications. The US issued an initial tsunami warning for Chile, Peru and Ecuador. That was later extended to Colombia, Antarctica, Panama and Costa Rica. [HAARP]"

HAARP has capacity to target areas and trigger "natural disasters" that the area is prone to experience so that the disaster is viewed as natural instead of attacked by a weapon of mass destruction. (Read Michel Chossudovsky, The Ultimate Weapon of Mass Destruction: "Owning the Weather" for Military Use, Global Research, 2004)

The U.S. is ready to offer help to Chile.

The money donated to help the people affected by the Tsunami primarily went to restoration of the land. Land which was then developed into very high end tourist attractions on what had once been an "undeveloped slice of natural beauty."As with Haiti and the Asian Tsunami, is it not strange and wonderful that they were all prepared and in the know for these actions of evil Mother Nature!

Three Survivors

Yet somehow, they failed with Katrina for days on their own turf! We won't go into shifting of the American population quite yet. For years I have maintained that the Asian Tsunami was not a natural occurrence and after Haiti, when I learned about "Disaster Economics" as a valid approach to business on Wall Street, and saw what was done to the populace and the real estated affected, I have known. But I will write on that soon.

Above are clips from an MSNBC and a CNN interview with people who saw strange lights in the sky just before/during the Chile earthquake.

Just as documented before the 2004 Tsunami, the 2008 China quake, and the 2010 Haiti quake, there is video evidence and many witnesses who saw aurora borealis type lights in the sky.

It is NOT a natural phenomenon to see such lights before/during a natural earthquake, however, such a lighting effect IS a common side-effect of HAARP waves coming back down from the Ionosphere. This is very damning evidence.

A bright glow is not a precursor to a natural earthquake. A bright glow was reportedly seen during the time of the Haiti earthquake.

A bright glow is not a precursor to a natural earthquake. A bright glow was reportedly seen during the time of the Hait earthquake. Pravda.Ru reported The Russian Navy reports that the U.S. created the earthquake in Haiti, the article archived on NoLiesRadio.

A bright glow was seen during the time of China's last powerful earthquake. There is documented evidence that it was created by scalar weapons based on a wedding party video that showed plasma discharge lights in the sky before that earthquake. These were posted on YouTube within hours by a wedding party and by other citizens of China.

A bright glow was seen and reported by hundreds of people, locals and tourists, during Vanuatu's 7.3 earthquake in 2002. Many witnessed that bright glow there during that quake around 4 a.m. Ni-vans, the Republic of Vanuatu's indigenous population and one of the World's oldest living cultures that inhabits a remote and pristine tropical paradise area, reported that they had never before seen a bright glow during earthquakes.

They did notice with great curiosity, due to its unusual presence there in the Port Vila harbor, the huge U.S. Navy ship that had unceremoniously moved in a couple of days before the quake, leaving before the quake as quietly as it had arrived.

Regarding the Asian Tsunami, not far from the event was a curiously well prepared and equipped U.S. Military, though it is doubtful that any of the officers and men involved really knew what was happening. Only a few asked why they had spent the past year training for a "Humanitarian Mission", when the whole point of the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps is normally to kill people in very large numbers. Just look at Fallujah, people.

As if by magic, the Pentagon managed to have two battle groups ready to sail at an instant's notice from Hong Kong and Guam during the normally chaotic Christmas to New Year period. Crikey! Not these 10,000+ Americans remained beside their hammocks day and night, waiting to be called into service. They eventually were, but not to Asia. More on this part to come in the near future, but it all ties in with the tsunami.

Hm. ANOTHER "undeveloped slice of paradise"! A natural event would be horrifying enough, but if these cataclysms were man-made, then we are unquestionably looking at the biggest string of war crimes in global history!

Another gauge to check for HAARP's responsibility is the Alaskan Induction Magnometer which basically shows whether or not HAARP is on or off at any particular time.

the 2004 Tsunami,
2005 Katrina,
2008 China quake,
and the 2010 Haiti quake,
HAARP was indeed turned on
and turned up to very high levels.

Before yesterday's quake HAARP was turned on once again, this time at very low frequency, for about 8-12 hours ending about 5 hours before (just like Haiti) the quake hit.

Not only this, but the
USGS actually registered a 2.5 rictor quake in Alaska at the same time as the Chile quake!

There are actually 2 HAARP facilities in Alaska, one in Russia, one in Norway, and one in Puerto Rico, unfortunately none of which have an Induction Magnometer in place to check if any of them were fired up in tandem.

There are no officially known numbers of separate HAARP stations worldwide, some say 3-4, 4-6, others as many as 8 to 10, the most well known being in Alaska and Norway (remember the Norway spiral? That happened over a HAARP station).

So this technology heats up the ionosphere (an electromagnetic-wave conducting a layer of electrically charged particles acting as a shield from solar winds 62 miles above the earth).

Remember there was an earthquake in Alaska today at a scale of 2.5 at the same time as this earthquake in Chile which was at a scale of 8.8, you could draw a straight line on the map between these two locations (Click here to read more from this article).

Above is Juan Andres Salfate on the Chilean conspiracy show, La Conspiración, talking about HAARP with subtitles in English.

In 2005, Chossudovsky emphasized in his updated 2002 article, "Washington's New World Order Weapons Have the Abiliy to Trigger Climate Change":

The important debate on global warming under UN auspices provides but a partial picture of climate change; in addition to the devastating impacts of greenhouse gas emissions on the ozone layer, the World's climate can now be modified as part of a new generation of sophisticated "non-lethal weapons."

Both the Americans and the Russians have developed capabilities to manipulate the World's climate.

In the US, the technology is being perfected under the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) as part of the ("Star Wars") Strategic Defence Initiative (SDI). Recent scientific evidence suggests that HAARP is fully operational and has the ability of potentially triggering floods, droughts, hurricanes and earthquakes.

Did anyone ever ask why suddenly the American Midwest and East has had so many population shifting hurricanes and tornadoes over the past few years? Tornadoes that moved masses of people to new areas and left many of them homeless and prone perhaps to an earlier death? It does not take a well placed bomb to bring down purposefully neglected infrastructure! All you need is something like HAARP.

From a military standpoint, HAARP is a weapon of mass destruction. Potentially, it constitutes an instrument of conquest capable of selectively destabilizing agricultural and ecological systems of entire regions.

PLEASE REFER TO DISASTER CAPITALISM HEADS TO HAITI In this piece, using both Sri Lanka and Haiti as examples, it is explained how the neocons manipulate and gain from these events. In fine detail. Sadly, more proof of their inhumanity.

These tourists had not figured an Earth quake into their holiday.

Chossudovsky wrote in 2004:

"The significant expansion in America's weather warfare arsenal, which is a priority of the Department of Defense, is not a matter for debate or discussion. While, environmentalists blame the Bush administration for not having signed the Kyoto protocol, the issue of "weather warfare", namely the manipulation of weather patterns for military use is never mentioned."

Indeed, the Western populace does not even know such things are possible. Mention weather control and you get the tinfoil cap treatment, yet in Europe and Russia, this is commonplace knowledge by pretty well everyone.

Weather warfare was not a major topic at the recent Copenhagen Summit, despite its well attendance by environmentalists.

The Pentagon has "joined the global warming consensus" used by environmentalists' "global warming" campaign according to Chossudovsky.

"HAARP also has the ability of triggering blackouts and disrupting the electricity power system of entire regions.

"An analysis of statements emanating from the US Air Force points to the unthinkable: the covert manipulation of weather patterns, communications systems and electric power as a weapon of global warfare, enabling the US to disrupt and dominate entire regions of the World." (Chossudovsky, 2004)

The weaponization of space is critical for imperialism, a bonanza for corporations' power elite. This is being countered by the organization led by Bruce Gagnon, Global Network Against the Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space.

Great ball of fire.

A bright glow was seen and reported by hundreds of people, locals and tourists, during Vanuatu's 7.3 earthquake in 2002. The writer witnessed that bright glow there during that quake around 4 a.m.

In this age of global U.S. military dominance, neither remote tropical island nor even space are places of peace.

Especially when there are natural resources involved or "undeveloped areas of pristine beaches begging to be exploited".



Saturday 27 February 2010


My Lucy looked very much like this sketch in markings and expression. Loved her to the end. She is a major part of my life memories, for 14 years.

I am a dog person, always have been, always will. Given my choice to be a wolf or a dog, I would take the dog role any day. I have loved them, I know them, and have kept a few always accepting them from puppy to death. I felt taking on the responsibility of a dog no different in terms of taking on responsibility than with a child.

It is a major commitment. Ah but what a commitment! My Old English Sheepdog Lucy paid me a thousandfold for every penny she cost. Twenty five years later I still miss her, can still hear her pot casse bark, feel her soft wool, and those noises a dog makes as it shuffles about the house in the dark hours. And unlike many owners, I kept her brushed and groomed to perfection, a commitment of 45 minutes every two days.

When the post below arrived in my e email tonight I read it and wept. I could not imagine the shallowness of what was done to this dog. Although, I remember reading about a woman who took her golden spaniels in to a shelter because they did not match her new decor. I know there are worse things in the world, heavens I write about them here almost daily. But still I felt compelled to speak out for animals and put up a few photos as well.

We give dogs time we can spare, space we can spare and love we can spare. And in return, dogs give us their all. It’s the best deal man has ever made. ~M. Acklam~


When I was a puppy, I entertained you with my antics and made you laugh. You called me your child, and despite a number of chewed shoes and a couple of murdered throw pillows, I became your best friend.

Whenever I was "bad," you'd shake your finger at me and ask "How could you?" But then you'd relent and roll me over for a belly rub.

My housebreaking took a little longer than expected, because you were terribly busy, but we worked on that together.

I remember those nights of nuzzling you in bed and listening to your confidences and secret dreams, and I believed that life could not be any more perfect. We went for long walks and runs in the park, car rides, stops for ice cream (I only got the cone because "ice cream is bad for dogs" you said), and I took long naps in the sun waiting for you to come home at the end of the day.

Gradually, you began spending more time at work and on your career, and more time searching for a human mate. I waited for you patiently, comforted you through heartbreaks and disappointments, never chided you about bad decisions, and romped with glee at your homecomings, and when you fell in love.

She, now your wife is not a "dog person". Still I welcomed her into our home, tried to show her affection, and obeyed her. I was happy because you were happy.

Then the human babies came along and I shared your excitement. I was fascinated by their pinkness, how they smelled, and I wanted to mother them, too. Only she and you worried that I might hurt them, and I spent most of my time banished to another room, or to a dog crate. Oh, how I wanted to love them, but I became a "prisoner of love."

As they began to grow, I became their friend. They clung to my fur and pulled themselves up on wobbly legs, poked fingers in my eyes, investigated my ears, and gave me kisses on my nose. I loved everything about them and their touch ~ because your touch was now so infrequent ~ and I would've defended them with my life if need be.

I would sneak into their beds and listen to their worries and secret dreams, and together we waited for the sound of your car in the driveway.

There had been a time, when others asked you if you had a dog, that you produced a photo of me from your wallet and told them stories about me. These past few years, you just answered "yes" and changed the subject. I had gone from being "your dog" to "just a dog," and you resented every expenditure on my behalf.

Now, you have a new career opportunity in another city, and you and they will be moving to an apartment that does not allow pets. You've made the right decision for your "family," but there was a time when I was your only family.

I was excited about the car ride until we arrived at the animal shelter. It smelled of dogs and cats, of fear, of hopelessness. You filled out the paperwork and said "I know you will find a good home for her."

They shrugged and gave you a pained look. They understand the realities facing a middle-aged dog, even one with "papers."

You had to pry your son's fingers loose from my collar as he screamed "No, Daddy! Please don't let them take my dog!"
And I worried for him, and what lessons you had just taught him about friendship and loyalty, about love and responsibility, and about respect for all life.

You gave me a good-bye pat on the head, avoided my eyes, and politely refused to take my collar and leash with you.

You had a deadline to meet and now I have one, too.

After you left, the two nice ladies said you probably knew about your upcoming move months ago and made no attempt to find me another good home. They shook their heads and asked, "How could you?"

They are as attentive to us here in the shelter as their busy schedules allow. They feed us, of course, but I lost my appetite days ago. At first, whenever anyone passed my pen, I rushed to the front, hoping it was you that you had changed your mind ~ that this was all a bad dream. Or I hoped it would at least be someone who cared, anyone who might save me.

When I realized I could not compete with the frolicking for attention of happy puppies, oblivious to their own fate, I retreated to a far corner and waited.

I heard her footsteps as she came for me at the end of the day, and I padded along the aisle after her to a separate room. A blissfully quiet room. She placed me on the table and rubbed my ears, and told me not to worry.

My heart pounded in anticipation of what was to come, but there was also a sense of relief. The prisoner of love had run out of days.

As is my nature, I was more concerned about her. The burden which she bears weighs heavily on her, and I know that, the same way I knew your every mood. She gently placed a tourniquet around my foreleg as a tear ran down her cheek.

I licked her hand in the same way I used to comfort you so many years ago. She expertly slid the hypodermic needle into my vein. As I felt the sting and the cool liquid coursing through my body, I lay down sleepily, looked into her kind eyes and murmured, "How could you?"

Perhaps because she understood my dog speak, she said, "I'm so sorry."

She hugged me, and hurriedly explained it was her job to make sure I went to a better place, where I wouldn't be ignored or abused or abandoned, or have to fend for myself ~ a place of love and light so very different from this earthly place.

And with my last bit of energy, I tried to convey to her with a thump of my tail that my "How could you?" was not directed at her. It was directed at you, My Beloved Master, I was thinking of you.

I will think of you and wait for you forever. May everyone in your life continue to show you so much loyalty.

THIS is the reality of what happens to the majority of animals sent to shelters.

If "How Could You?" brought tears to your eyes as you read it, as it did to the writer as he wrote it, it is because it is the composite story of the millions of formerly "owned" pets who die each year in American & Canadian animal shelters.

Please use this to help educate, on your websites, in newsletters, on animal shelter and vet office bulletin boards. Tell the public that the decision to add a pet to the family is an important one for life, that animals deserve our love and sensible care, that finding another appropriate home for your animal is your responsibility and any local humane society or animal welfare league can offer you good advice, and that all life is precious.

Please do your part to stop the killing, and encourage all spay & neuter campaigns in order to prevent unwanted animals.

Please pass this on to everyone, not to hurt them or make them sad, but it could save maybe, even one, unwanted pet.

Remember, dogs love UNCONDITIONALLY.

Now that the tears are rolling down your face, pass it on! Send to everyone in your address book and around the world!


The blog AZ puppy mills made me cry in sorrow.

This story made me cry in love and warmth. Truly heartwarming.


RETHINK THESE GENERALIZATIONS says the author and with good reason.

The Ulterior Motive of “Immigration”

February 27th, 2010
By Perry

Perry has been a good friend of mine for quite a few years. He has been into the alternative history and revisionism thing for a very long time and has views that are bang on but his perspective is often original and different than most.

In our many very long discussions over the years he has taught me much and, even if his viewpoint is different from most, I have found them to be additional fuel, not not something to fight over or deny. His new site "A Look in the Mirror" is as clear and plain as his writing style.

There are literally millions of articles, on-line and otherwise, lamenting the effects of mass immigration. Indeed there are whole books on the subject. All these articles and books are written by “westerners” who see “the invading hoard” as being somehow hell bent on destroying “their” society, culture and country.

Xenophobia par excellence. Do these people REALLY believe that every “Mexican” who crosses the border is motivated by the desire to “destroy America” or that all the “Muslims invading Europe” were sent by some Grand Imam to “Islamasize” Europe?

Could it be these people are innocent victims of the same manipulation that all of us are suffering under?

Let me run a little deductive reasoning by you and see if it sticks…
There’s no denying the effects of sudden mass immigration of diluting the “native” culture and bringing about cultural chaos (the school where the kids speak 150 languages for instance)…that’s the obvious consequence in the present.

This is a promo photo for the London Olympics in 2012 meant to show the racial diversity of just a few classes in a London inner school. Shall we discuss multiculturalism overload? This is what Toronto was like when I was carrying my first child 28 years ago. It might seem hypocritical, but I left my Toronto, to let her experience growing up Canadian first, even though she was biracial. In fact, her colour is still an oddity where we live but her exotic beauty has worked well for her.

It gives the sheeple of the world something to focus on…the “others” are trying to take over.

There’s also no doubt that mass immigration from the “third world” works to suppress wages in “first world” countries.

All of these effects certainly play into the “masters” hands by creating non-coherent communities full of tension and therefore unable to focus on the REAL danger…namely the “masters”.
MY reasoning for this article is based on the FACT that the “masters” also plan (eventually) to massively and rapidly reduce the human population of the planet via nuclear war/total war.

With this in mind let’s proceed with some LOGIC shall we…
If 10 Million “Mexicans” come to the dis-United States what does that mean for Mexico? OBVIOUSLY it means there are now 10 million LESS people in Mexico! Get it?

In other words through simple economic manipulation the “masters” have herded even more sheep into the areas most likely to be nuked in the coming war…the population of “Mexico” has now been reduced without having to kill anyone…clever huh?

You can only kill so many ants with a hammer if they are all spread out but if you gather all the ants into one box then you can get them all with just one hammer swing! Get it?
Same goes for Europe. Ever notice how most of those “Muslims invading Europe” come from non-nuclear countries? There’s now 100 million less “ants” in the Middle East gathered into the “roach motels” (aka cities) of Europe.

Of course in the short term this has the effect of inflaming European’s xenophobic tendencies making them more willing to be accomplices to the mass culling now taking place in Iraq and Afghanistan/Pakistan.

It all plays into the “masters” hands.
So the “ulterior motive” behind the manipulated mass migrations now taking place is POPULATION REDUCTION…and it’s working like a well oiled machine.

MY LAST SNIPPIT: However, Perry, I still believe, despite the accuracy of your words, and you do have this boring tendency to be right 3/4 of the time, that this enforced and created immigration chaos is also following the Talmudic decree to erase Christian White people as a whole.

It does create a lot of diversion and turmoil, yes, but it also has the practical application of creating many mixed race children which delights the likes of the deceased Rabbi Rabinovitch or any of the other modern Rabbinical leaders who hate Christian Whiles and want our kind to disappear. That cannot be denied, any more than can be the logic you use in this article.

THIS is what the war on Toyota is all about. What they are making of Americans, they now work to put on the Japanese. It is not Toyota at fault. It is the "problem" of wanting to keep Japanese society whole and healthy ~ a condition considered anathema to the IMF and financial elite of Washington and Wall Street. This war bleeds quality of life, just as it has been, and will continue to be, here.

Many of us consider Toyotas to be one of the best automobiles out there. Good performance, good mileage and dependable vehicles. Personally, I have only ever driven bottom level Toyotas, no extras, but they have yet to let me down. These are good affordable automobiles.

I have been keeping an eye on what has been going on with what I instinctively felt was corporate espionage or financial war but did not take time to investigate.

This article by Mike Whitney begins to answer my questions and to also increase my disgust and dislike for American business tactics. Read on for a taste of what you will know is the truth as you go along.

The American government now uses the criminal greedy policies that are truly Luciferian in origin. This is not surprising considering who is really in charge of it all.

Does anyone really believe that Toyota is being pilloried in the media for a few highway fatalities?

Nonsense. If Congress is so worried about innocent people getting killed, then why haven't they indicted US commander Stanley McChrystal for blowing up another 27 Afghan civilians on Sunday?

But this isn't about bloodshed and it's certainly not "safety regulations". It's about politics ~ bare-knuckle Machiavellian politics. An attack on Toyota is an attack on Japan's leading export. It is an act of war. Here's a excerpt from the New York Times which explains what is really going on:

"The Japanese economy has emerged from its worst recession since World War II, but is still reeling. Japan must do more to lift its economy out of deflation and boost long-term growth", S.&P. said.
“The outlook change reflects our view that the Japanese government’s diminishing economic policy flexibility may lead to a downgrade unless measures can be taken to stem fiscal and deflationary pressures,” S.&P. said. “The policies of the new Democratic Party of Japan government point to a slower pace of fiscal consolidation than we had previously expected.”
President Barack Obama is expected to address similar worries in the Untied States on Wednesday, with a call for a freeze in spending on many domestic programs, a move he hopes will quell perceptions that government spending is out of control. Fiscal problems in Greece and Ireland have also helped put the spotlight on the issue of national debt." ("Japan’s High Debt Prompts Credit Rating Warning", HIROKO TABUCHI AND BETTINA WASSENER, NY Times)
"The two greatest obstacles to democracy in the United States are, first, the widespread delusion among the poor that we have a democracy, and second, the chronic terror among the rich, lest we get it."~ Edward Dowling, Editor, Chicago Daily News, 28jul41
OBAMA! Think for yourself. Of course that might get you assassinated by one of the men around you. How can you NOT see what is already happening due to tightening the American belts beyond what the people can already handle?

Meanwhile you continue to pay a fortune for wars no one but the corporate interest and bloodthirsty zionist neocons insist upon. You go along to consolidate the wishes/orders of your puppet masters. You are no fool, Obama. You KNOW what you are doing, don't you?

This is financial war, banking pressure, plain and simple, on the American people and your buddies want the same for Japan. What you have been doing to your own people, you now expect a SUCCESSFUL culture to do. Break the people. End the middle class. Become purely a corporate state run by thugs who will do anything to make a yen.

Japan's new liberal government is fighting deflation using the traditional methodology, by lowering interest rates and increasing fiscal stimulus. But that's not what Washington wants.

Neoliberal policymakers and their buddies in the right-wing think tanks want "fiscal consolidation" which means harsh austerity measures that will deepen the recession, increase unemployment, and trigger a wave of defaults and bankruptcies.

This is EXACTLY what they have been doing to America for years as well as other countries. This is the reason for America's decline into the place it is now, only half way to where they want us to be.

This is how western corporatists and bank tycoons keep their thumb on the developing world and thrust their economies into perennial crisis. It's the "shock doctrine" and it's been the IMF's modus operandi for over 20 years.

Japan is being stuffed into a fiscal straight-jacket by supporters of the Washington consensus whose goal is to weaken government and accelerate the privatization of public assets and services.

The ratings agencies are being used in the same way as the media; to wage an economic/guerrilla war on Japan and force the administration to rethink their economic policies. (Note: There is no chance that Japan will default on its debt because it pays its debts in its own currency and has large foreign exchange reserves of over $1 trillion)

The attacks on Toyota are a way of showing Tokyo what happens to countries that fail to obey Washington's orders.

Already Japanese are losing work. Osamu Miura, laid off by Toyota, with leaflets and a sign asking to be allowed to work.(photo by Torin Boyd/Polaris, for The New York Times)

Here's a clip from the New York Times which sums up the problem in a nutshell:
The government of Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama has "bolstered spending on social programs aimed at helping households......The powerful lower house of parliament approved a supplementary budget for the fiscal year that ends in March worth ¥7.2 trillion, or $80.3 billion, to help shore up the economy...And next year, government spending will grow further with a record trillion-dollar budget including ambitious welfare outlays. (New York Times)
Western elites will not tolerate economic policies which raise the standard of living for the average working slob. "Social programs" or "welfare outlays" are anathema to their trickle down, Voodoo capitalist orthodoxy.

What they want is upward redistribution and class warfare.

Regrettably, Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama has put himself at odds with US powerbrokers and is feeling the full measure of their wrath. His public approval ratings have plummeted to 37 percent and are headed downward still.

The message is simple:
Cross Washington and you're a goner.






Crying, complaining, whining, pointing fingers,
denying his fingers are in the cookie jar,
Lieverman lies and studies a bit about
how to maybe look innocent at the same time.

Lieberman on Dubai assassination: Arabs always blame Israel

FEBRUARY 23, 2010

The Arabs nations blame Israel for anything that happens in the Middle East, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman told his Irish counterpart during a meeting in Brussels on Monday, adding that there are many other power struggles in the region which could have resulted in the operation.

"The Arabs have a tendency to blame Israel for anything that happens in the Middle East," the Israeli FM said, adding that the region "has many internal struggles within groups and states which are not as democratic as Israel is."

Truth hurt Lieberman?

Meanwhile on Monday, the U.K.'s Europe Minister Chris Bryant says a total of eight forged U.K. passports were used in the Dubai slaying of a top Hamas operative, two more than had been previously disclosed.

During the meeting between Lieberman and Irish Foreign Minister Michael Martin, the Israeli FM was asked about the use of fraudulent Irish passports by the suspected assassins of Hamas strongman Mahmoud al-Mabhouh.

Martin also reportedly questioned Lieberman about the fact that the Dubai police chief had stated he was "99 percent" sure that the Israeli Mossad was responsible for the operation.

Lieberman said that there wasn't
"even one story indicating that Israel was implicated in the assassination. If anyone other than the Media would have claimed otherwise we would have addressed the issue, but as that there are no such allegations, there is no need to address it further."
Please can I call him a nasty old arrogant lying turd? Please?

The Israeli FM later met with British FM David Miliband, where he was also reportedly asked about the alleged use of fake U.K. passports in the January assassination in Dubai.

After the meeting, the British foreign secretary said that he told Lieberman that Israel needs to cooperate with the investigation launched by Dubai into the assassination of a Hamas official using forged European passports.

He said he underlined to Lieberman "the importance we attach to Israel cooperating with that investigation. It is very important that people know that we continue to take this issue very seriously indeed."

According to Miliband, the Israeli foreign minister replied saying "he had no information at this stage."

Both Miliband and Martin have made strong statements in recent days condemning the forging of passports and theft of identities.

Words are cheap. If things don't get properly answered, perhaps some actions would do more.

Earlier Monday, European Union foreign ministers condemned the use of forged European passports by assassins who killed a Palestinian militant in Dubai, but made no direct reference to Israel.

Diplomatic sources said that the statement was intended to censure Israel over its alleged involvement in the killing of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh last month ~ though other senior European sources said the statement would not formally link Israel with the assassination or the forging of passports.

Israel has declined to confirm or deny any involvement.

"The EU strongly condemns the fact that those involved in this action [assassination] used fraudulent EU member states' passports and credit cards acquired through the theft of EU citizens' identities," a declaration on behalf of EU foreign ministers said.

Another senior diplomat said EU ambassadors had been summoned for consultations by Foreign Ministry officials in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates.

During the meeting, Abu Dhabi officials requested that EU foreign ministers, who will convene in Brussels on Monday for a conference, issue a communique over the use of European passports in the Mabhouh operation. The UAE is also demanding an explicit EU statement supporting the Emirates' authorities who are investigating the case.

According to the European source, the UAE government did not blame Israel for carrying out the assassination nor did it request that Israel be cited in the EU statement.

The source added that senior officials from Germany, France, Britain, Ireland and the EU met Sunday to agree on the language of the statement. Ireland is advocating the hardest line among all EU members by demanding that the statement explicitly refer to Israel.

According to the European source, the communique will include three key elements: the EU's condemnation of the use of European passports by members of the assassination team, an expression of support for the UAE government and investigators in Dubai, and a commitment to investigate the passport forgeries and theft identities as quickly as possible.

Discussions over the wording of the statement are expected to continue until Monday evening, by when it is likely to be released.

Meanwhile, the commander of the Dubai police revealed additional details about the January 20 assassination.

The police official, Dahi Khalfan, said the police had information that would not be disclosed currently but which related to the use by some of the assassins of diplomatic passports to enter Dubai.

The Dubai police chief added that some of the hit squad had been in the emirate for at least a year before the killing and used the same passports. He made the remarks to Al-Bayan, a newspaper published in the UAE.

Khalfan said the information that led to the killing of Mabhouh came from an associate of a senior Hamas official, according to a statement published in another UAE newspaper, Al-Khaleej. Khalfan has been reported as saying the associate gave information about Mabhouh's arrival in Dubai.

Over the weekend, Hamas officials criticized Mabhouh's conduct. Hamas legislator Salah Bardawil said Mabhouh endangered himself by ordering airline tickets over the Internet and said the senior Hamas official even notified Mabhouh's family about where in Dubai Mabhouh was staying. Mabhouh's brother, however, denied that the family had received such information. For their part, Hamas spokesmen denied the Dubai police chief's account.

One spokesman, Sami Abu Zahari, denied there was an informant in Hamas. Another senior Hamas official criticized the Dubai authorities for failing to sufficiently involve the group in their investigation.

Moreover, Arab media reported yesterday that the UAE has asked Egypt to officially lodge a protest with Israel over the assassination as well as the alleged participation of two Palestinians who were arrested in connection with the hit.

Abu Dhabi's national security adviser met over the weekend with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. UAE officials said the arrested Palestinians were former members of the Palestinian Authority security apparatus

I believe that the international community needs to get tougher with Israel. The main reason why solutions cannot be reached is the preferential treatment that Israel gets. When other countries violate international law, they get punished, except for Israel. If war crimes are committed, other countries get punished, except Israel.

Israel behaves in the international community like a spoiled child, doing what it wants without being questioned or punished and fussing like a brat if spoken to over anything negative in relation to it. Pure bully behaviour!

I also see it as being very possible that these Israeli assassins have been dealt with by now. Maybe they were assassinated themselves for creating such a mess or perhaps are lying in a hospital awaiting a new face. Stranger things have happened.

Top EU official:
Dubai hit may harm ties with Israel

Ha'aretz News
February 21, 2010

A senior EU diplomat said on Sunday that Israel's suspected role in the slaying of a Hamas militant in Dubai and the killers' alleged use of forged EU passports will harm Israel's relations with the European bloc.

The official said the passport controversy will be harmful for the way Israel is treated by the EU since it comes on top of strong criticism over Israel's 2008 attack on Gaza.

The EU diplomat spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitive topic on Sunday, a day before the EU's 27 foreign ministers are due to meet in Brussels. Israel's Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman will also be in Brussels to see EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, among others.

Dubai police say at least 11 suspects in the Jan. 19 killing of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh used altered British, Irish, French and German passports

Dubai police chief Lt. Gen. Dahi Khalfan Tamim said that the assassins in Dubai made use of diplomatic passports, the Emirati newspaper Al-Bayan reported on Sunday.

Tamim also added that some of the assassins were already in Dubai for at least a year before the assassination, and used the passports in question.

Earlier on Sunday, a top Emirati official urged European investigators to launch full-scale probes into how fraudulent passports were used by a hit squad accused of killing Hamas commander Mahmoud al-Mabhouh.

The U.A.E.'s minister of state for foreign affairs, Anwar Gargash, said the Gulf country is deeply concerned that the suspected assassins used expertly doctored passports from nations that don't require advance U.A.E. visas.

"The U.A.E. is deeply concerned by the fact that passports of close allies, whose nationals currently enjoy preferential visa waivers, were illegally used to commit this crime," Gargash said in a statement, carried by the Emirates' state-run news agency WAM on Sunday.

Dubai's police chief Tamim has blamed Israel's Mossad secret service.

"The abuse of passports poses a global threat, affecting both countries' national security as well as the personal security of travelers," the Emirates' Foreign Minister Sheik Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan was quoted saying in the same statement.

The statement gave no updates on the investigation, but said the Emirates' and Dubai authorities continue to scrutinize events that led to Mabhouh's killing and its aftermath.

The authorities also remain in close contact with the concerned European governments, the statement added and listed the United Kingdom, Ireland, France and Germany and Austria.

Emirati officials also said on Sunday that at least two more fraudulent Irish passports have been linked to the alleged hit squad accused of killing Mahmoud al-Mabhouh.

Earlier this week, Tamim told reporters in Dubai that the alleged assassins used foreign cell phone cards to avoid being traced while calling a command center in Austria.

British ministers believe the forged U.K. passports used by the team accused of assassinating Mabhouh were secretly copied at Ben-Gurion airport, the British daily telegraph reported earlier Sunday.

British diplomatic sources said ministers were told in a briefing that the passport fraud was committed by Israeli immigration officials who stopped the British nationals, now living in Israel, as they went through the airport on recent trips.

According to the Telegraph report, officials believe the passport numbers were photocopied and then used to create new documents used by the hit squad.

The suspects used the fake passports bearing their own pictures, but with the names and numbers of innocent Europeans.

All six British passports were not biometric, which means they did not have a computer chip embedded in them. Experts told the newspaper the fraud would have been relatively simple to carry out.

The identities of French, German and Irish citizens were also used.

Germany probing identity of passport-holder tied to hit

German officials on Saturday said they are examining the identity of Michael Bodenheimer, the name that appeared on a genuine German passport allegedly used in Mabhouh's.

The authorities in the city of Cologne, where the passport was issued, began a probe, and federal authorities are now considering a move of their own.

According to German weekly Der Spiegel, Bodenheimer, an Israeli, applied for a German passport from the Cologne authorities. Bodenheimer presented documents that proved German lineage, including his grandparents' marriage certificate. He also showed his Israeli passport that was issued to him a year earlier in Tel Aviv.

The German passport was issued on June 18, 2009. That document was used by one of the assassination suspects in Dubai on January 19, a day before the killing.

According to Der Spiegel, Bodenheimer does not live in Cologne, as he had claimed in his application, and no other person by that name lives there. The magazine claims a man by that name lived in Herzliya until June last year.

Haaretz has learned that a Michael Bodenheimer lives in Bnei Brak. His wife told Haaretz in a telephone interview that "he has no German passport and he never asked for such a passport. He never visited Germany, except perhaps in transit on the way to the United States."

His wife added that the ultra-Orthodox family does not have any family in Herzliya and that even though Bodenheimer's grandparents were born in Germany, they emigrated to the United States, from where he immigrated to Israel 30 years ago.

"We are quiet people and are not used to so much attention," she told Haaretz on Saturday. "The past week since the news of this story broke has been difficult for us. The fact that someone is using his name does not make him involved in this story."

Bodenheimer studies at a kollel, a yeshiva for married men. He has said he was astounded to see his name on the list of suspects, supposedly belonging to a German citizen.

"At first we didn't understand what everyone was talking about," Bodenheimer's daughter said. "The picture that was published doesn't look like him at all. He is always busy with Torah study," she said, adding that he holds no citizenship other than Israeli and American.

German media have reported that the intelligence services of the country are certain that the Mossad was involved in the killing and that the foreign minister demanded that Israel explain why it used a German passport.

Israel's ambassador to Berlin, Yoram Ben-Ze'ev, was summoned to the Foreign Ministry, where he was asked about information that can shed light on the killing of Mabhouh.

Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon said Saturday that he does not expect relations between Israel and European countries whose passports were used in the assassination to deteriorate as a result of the incident.

"I do not expect a crisis in relations because there is nothing linking Israel to the assassination. Britain, France and Germany are countries with shared interests with Israel in countering terrorism," Ayalon said, naming three of the four countries whose passports were used. At least three of the suspects used Irish passports.

Opposition leader and Kadima chairwoman Tzipi Livni on Tuesday praised the assassination of a Hamas commander in Dubai last month, marking the first such comment from a top Israeli official.

Tzipi Livni, speaking at the closing panel of the board of trustees of the Jewish Agency in Jerusalem, said the death of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh was good news, but did not say who was behind the killing.

Authorities in Dubai have said they were nearly certain Israel's intelligence agency, Mossad, was behind the death of Hamas chief Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in a luxury hotel room in Dubai on January 20.

"The entire world must support those fighting terrorism: an American, British or Israeli soldier regardless if he is in Gaza or Dubai. The fact that a terrorist was killed, and it doesn't matter if it was in Dubai or Gaza, is good news to those fighting terrorism," said Livni.

I love how she throws the word "terrorrist" around when she was a Mossad assassin in her past and the country she loves so much is a rogue terrorist nation, and her parents were high level assassins for Irgun. Does she not see the contradiction here? No, of course not, she is on the good side and all others suspect. I think the worst thing I could wish upon her is that at least one of her sons becomes a shministim! She would be so embarrassed I am sure to have a child who puts peace before war. Look good on ya Tzip.

Also on Tuesday, Former Israel Defense Forces Chief of Staff Dan Halutz said that the attribution of the Mabhouh assassination to Israel increases the country's power of deterrence, Army Radio reported.

"These actions deter terrorist organizations, as well as states, who understand the capabilities of Israel's intelligence," said Halutz at a conference in Tel Aviv.

Halutz also referred to the assassination of Hezbollah commander Imad Mughniyeh, which has also been blamed on Israel, saying, "When Mughniyeh was killed, it caused immediate damage to Hezbollah. Beyond the direct result of removing a significant man from the game, it sowed fear in the next in line [to replace him.]"

"Nasrallah has been sitting in a bunker for three years for fear that 'his soul would be returned to its creator,'" said Halutz referring to the Hezbollah leader
