In the Feb. 13 Daily Globe, there was an article about the Humane Society of the U.S. filing to protect the grey wolves from being hunted to keep the numbers down. Continue Reading

So we have John Boehner, “the coward,” Eric Cantor, “the bad” and Paul Ryan, “the ugly.”
You forgot one…Marvin “dumb and dumber” Kroontje

The hunters are the ones who want the wolves wiped out, so they can murder the other animals themselves. The wolf hunts because he’s hungry. The hunters hunt because they think killing is fun. Stop your urban sprawl! Too damn many people around, that’s why there doesn’t seem to be any room left for the other creatures!

Now, now, pat. e. It’s pretty nervy of you to attack Mr. Kroontje for his comments about the “leadership” of the biggest do-nothing Congress in the history of the U.S., don’t you think? (That’s a
I’m sure Boehner, et al., appreciate your unvarnished support. But, really, they haven’t earned it. Boehner’s quote speaks volumes about his wishy-washy “leadership” and unwillingness to take a stand. Blindly supporting them doesn’t make you appear any “smarter”. Lighten up.
So, what really drove you to call him “dumb and dumber”? It certainly couldn’t be because he writes in complete sentences in carefully crafted paragraphs, or uses punctuation, or spells correctly, could it? He seems pretty intelligent to me.
Don’t forget you can always submit your rebuttal, in writing, to the print edition. The first amendment’s a wonderful thing, isn’t it?

So you agree the democrat Senate is responsible for “the biggest do nothing Congress in history. I never thought I would hear that admission from the left.

Yes, the same Senate that has had record number of filibusters by the Republican minority. The high point of which was when Minority Leader McConnell filibustered his OWN BILL!!

“So, what really drove you to call him “dumb and dumber”? It certainly couldn’t be because he writes in complete sentences in carefully crafted paragraphs, or uses punctuation, or spells correctly, could it? ” As long as we’re having another spelling and punctuation lesson, perhaps you should be putting your punctuation marks inside your quotation marks where they belong.
“wishy-washy “leadership” and unwillingness to take a stand. Blindly supporting them doesn’t make you appear any “smarter”. Now here’s an area that could be looked at as the “pot calling the kettle black.”

Ellamay – I’m a former English teacher and know where punctuation marks go. My usage is correct. Yours is also an option. Preferred usage: “pot calling the kettle black”. But that’s just a petty issue.
The bigger issue is whether or not someone should be accused of being “dumb and dumber” for telling the TRUTH. Doing so only makes the accuser look “dumb”. Some people just can’t handle the truth.
Pat e. got her hackles up because someone dared to insult her “dear leader”, and resorted to name calling.

Please stay civil, or I’ll have to shut the thread down. And I’d really rather not do that.

The HSUS is as corrupt as it gets…
They want us to believe they spend their annual tax-free budget on caring for animals but their real agenda is to pass extremist legislation.
HSUS promotes a vegan diet–no meat or dairy–and wants to end all animal-human relationships across the board, from agriculture to biomedical research.
They constantly engage in deceptive propaganda to win its political and legislative battles. But they are not held responsible for their tactics because they are a nonprofit group that enjoys political free speech protections.
They call themselves a humane society but they do not have any shelters. By using the name HSUS they give donors the impression money is spent to care for animals but the money is actually spent to fund a large propaganda, lobbying, and fund raising machine.

devilschild — I hate to be a buzz kill here, but if you’re going to “cut and paste”, you should give credit to the original writer. It’s only fair.
Your comments are taken, verbatim, from a blog dating back to October 2007. Here’s the full context for those who might be interested ad contains interesting “pro and con” comments.

Oh baloney…you LOVE being a buzz kill. It’s the only reason you get out of bed in the morning. It’s the only thing that keeps you going. But you got to do what you’re good at and you sir are excellent at that.
You’re right though. I summarized a piece I read a few months ago that I believe clearly states the motives of the HSUS. I just don’t want people contributing their hard earned cash to an unsavory outfit. Give to your local shelter instead. If you want stronger laws against animal cruelty contact your state legislatures. Keep it local. Work with people you know.
Thanks for posting the link. I hate posting them but I like to read them. And you give me too much credit for cutting and pasting…I have no idea how to do that and I don’t want to learn.
