The English have gone bonkers on us

The canary was used for years by miners as an early warning that poison gas was in the air.

This post clearly meets that definition.

Pet shop owner fined £1,000 and told to wear an electronic tag... for selling a GOLDFISH to a boy aged 14

Her offence was to unwittingly sell a goldfish to a 14-year-old boy taking part in a trading standards 'sting'.


Defending the goldfish case, Iain Veitch, head of public protection at Trafford Council, said: 'The evidence presented for this conviction clearly demonstrates that it is irresponsible to sell animals to those who are not old enough to look after them.

'Let this conviction send out a message that we will not tolerate those who cause unnecessary suffering to animals. The council will always try to support pet and business owners so that they are able to care for their animals properly, but where they continually ignore the advice they are given, we will not hesitate to use our statutory powers.'

The goldfish was later adopted

Just sent this to my two Senators

I don’t want to be ugly but:

If any Republican gets involved with any “cap and trade” or “climate change” or whatever it is called….. Or if they get involved with any “immigration reform” or whatever it is called…

….for any reason.

I will stay home next November, or worse, vote for a Democrat.

Why? Because there will be nothing in these two bills that I can agree with.

And the Republican leadership should remember it was the illegal alien amnesty bill that gave the Democrats the majority in 2006.

Simpler put. If the Republicans want to be Democrats then I’ll just get out of the way.

Thank you for understanding.

I just wanted them to know!

Here, find your Senator.

Here, find your Representative.

Dark Avenger is given 1 comment in an attempt to help him understand... an impossible task but I try... I try.

A picture of Obama's White House as Dan Rather thinks of it.

The Dark Avenger has shown up with the following comment regarding my suspension, not banning btw, from commenting on a forum. See the previous post for details.

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "I have been suspended from a newspaper forum..":

You could've made your point without your insulting images.

You have banned people here in the past who haven't posted images to make a point, what's the difference between your website and this forum you've been kicked out of?

DA, you were banned after being told numerous times that your comments were off topic and followed by miles of quotes from Wiki or other sources that had nothing to do with the subject of the post but instead made some other point. I gave this similar statement before:

If I commented that it was a beautiful day and that I thought Obama's energy policy was harming the country you would come back with several hundred words on the fact it was not a beautiful day in California and that this article on Wiki proved it.

Your actions are known as "reframing the debate" as a defense against whatever point the opponent has made.

Comments like that coupled with a few snarks and personal attacks got you banned. If you want to comment on what you want to comment you can always start your own blog. If it will make you feel better you can ban me.

My point was that the terrorist attacks we have had are mostly from radical Muslim Arabs. The camel pic reminds us of that fact. If you find that non PC I remind you that PC at Ft Hood cost us 13 dead.

Time to put childish "feel good" things behind us. Not all Arabs and/or other Muslims are terrorists. But enough terrorists have met that description that we are fools to not not understand that simple fact.

Obamie's pic is spot on. It was part of a post re his healthcare plan (?) that he demonstrated a remarkable ability to lie and put on a show over a patient that his actions were actually harming. That defines the actions of a witch doctor.

The comment made is harsh, but accurate. Editorial cartoons are often harsh.

I might also point out that indians had their medicine men.

That he happens to be black doesn't change that fact. It is an iconic image, just as the images of Bush and Reagan as nut case cowboys were considered iconic because of their background.

Obamie used race to be elected and the media carried his water. He continues to want to do that. The press continues to help him.
