I felt compelled to comment as I felt the same as many of the posters here in regards to outlawingRead More the breed and what not. That is until I started dating someone who rescued two pitbulls and I have to tell they are the two most lovable and harmless dogs I have ever met. I previously owned Boxers and these pits just want to be loved and held and shown attention. I believe like most animals, they are a product of their environment. It is the element teaching these dogs to be aggressive and vicious more so then the dogs themselves. All dogs are capable of attacking someone if they are raised aggressively.

So it occurred in the neighborhood where a mob murderer used to live. Who cares if a criminal livedRead More there. Too bad it didn't get him before he was arrested.

This post is very narrow-minded and ignorant. I have 4 kids an 8 yr.old, 6 yr old, 4 yr old andRead More newborn and have 3 pitbulls. My dog is well socialized and trained and has never showed aggression towards people or animals. Did I mention we have 2 cats as well. My pitbull has been attacked by a small ankle biter ripped her leg open causing her to need stitches and my dog didn't even defend herself. She just looked at me and cried. Rather making unfair prejudice assumptions they should do some research. These dogs just need responsible owners who are properly educated. People want these dogs who shouldn't and thats why they get a bad reputation. I was mauled by a Labrador but I don't judge all Labrador. My kids pull my pits tails climb on them take bones n food from them and my dogs just let it happen they enjoy their love and attention. If you dont raise a child right they do drugs and gang bang and hurt people n society the same goes for pitbulls. Raise them right socialization is key and they will be very good family dogs.

I do agree that there is a total lack of planning, however, the extent to which the writer wouldRead More require borders the ridiculous. I just replaced my roof. If you follow his logic I should start saving for the next 20 years so that in 2034 I have enough money to pay for it again. We all know that is not going to happen for us personally so why should we expect elected politicians to do it. If they would plan out 3-5 years that would be something and that is all you can really hope for. I also disagree with one other of the writer's suggestions that the single most important job of council is to raise land values. That's pure nonsense. You have those expectations when you buy stock in a company. Government is not in the business of business, plain and simple. Their single most important job is to provide safety and services in the community. If they do that well, land value will appreciate. By the way, attracting business does not necessarily improve all land values. Only certain ones do. A thoughtful and provocative opinion letter but a little off base reality-wise.

What did I say last week when everybody was making comments about the school tax.it doesn't matterRead More anyway the town is going to raise the taxes whether we vote for it or not and here is the proof.

#MAC. Do Latter Day Saints really believe that God turned the Indians skin red because theyRead More slaughtered the original native Americans?

We had some bible pimps in Sunnyvale.

No, Alex. We believe God led (or inspired) various families, groups and individuals to come to HisRead More "Promised" or "chosen" land, reserved for a righteous people. The first family group thus described in the "Book of Mormon" as "led" by God, to what came to be known as the Americas, was the family of Lehi. Younger son Nephi and others were obedient to God's commands and blessed, while his brother Laman (and others) were lazy, jealous, disobedient and warred against the Nephites. God did not want the righteous Nephites to intermarry with the wicked Lamanites, so he cursed the latter with dark skin so that they would be visibly distinguished and separate.------------------------------------------- If you have more questions, please ask a Mormon friend, or invite Mormon missionaries in to answer them. Many FAQs are also on the website: www.mormon.org

Mad as hell... April 22, 2014 at 11:28 pm
Savecritters...I appreciate your concern but like I said you may want to make sure your homeownersRead More insurance will cover that dog. When you're on the receiving end of a pit bull dog's attack it's hard to fathom the logic in owning one.
Savecritters....you lost the argument as soon as you wrote "...owned by countless movieRead More stars..." What the hell does that prove?

Yeah, Miley Cyrus' pit bull killed her little doggie last fall. The other dog that just died...it'sRead More being covered up how it died. That's why all the articles that mention coyote say "allegedly".

Boss Hogg and Anthony. Thank you both. Seeing where it's coming from I'll take that as a compliment.

Wrong blog Igor, but I do agree with your opinions on this particular blog.
Conrad April 22, 2014 at 08:53 pm
In my experience, the people who have the most to say against other people's shortcomings are peopleRead More who have not experienced many trials in their life. They've never had the opportunity to hope for the compassion they're so willing to withhold from others who need it.

And the Bible says.....take the log out of your own eye so that you can see well enough to take theRead More speck out of your brother's eye. It also says not to judge, or you will be judged; and the measure by which you judge will be measured to you. Since Christie Nicole believes in the judgment day....it's gonna suck to be you!
Hookerman April 23, 2014 at 08:10 am
Christie (n), we’re not grasping your philosophy and standards because they are nonsensical.Read More Promiscuity and sexual orientation are two separate things. Heterosexuals can be promiscuous and suffer the consequences (see Magic Johnson), and gay people can be as monogamous as you are.

Fake Boss Hogg. Kinda funny coming from a guy that picked "Almost Brilliant" as a handleRead More a week ago...
Notbricktrash April 22, 2014 at 01:04 pm
This guy is psycho I see all negative posts on this breed. Us all who are for the breed let's postRead More positive things. This guy has no life obviously to sit and pick apart a breed. My dad was a meter reader in the day he was attacked and bitten 9 times on different occasions. 2 of them were German sheps, rest were ankle biters. ALL dogs bite. My parents were ignorant with pit bulls I remember my neighbors bf had them in my yard when I was a kid and my moms screaming they are vicious get inside. (They were sweet dogs) that goes with them being uneducated about the breed. They witnessed my neighbors pit mauling the neighbors small dog (their dog was nice until the crack heads put him in a cage 24/7) they are like till recently they are dangerous blah blah blah and know what I educated them I now rescued a pit lab who is a big baby and whom my parents adore. I cross post animals all over and many are pit bulls. They say 1 of 600 finds homes. It's sad cause in my dad's years of meter reading not one pit bull attacked him. 2 days in a row I saw 2 pits running in and out of traffic on a main road by my house. Almost hit them. I got out of my car called them over (had no fear as if it were a smaller dog or a shep) they came to me I grabbed their collars and what did they do? They licked me. I'm in school to be an nj Animal control officer and an associates in vet tech and I can bet you in my life I will support the pit breed in some successful way. I will never hate the breed or judge them. I've got bitten by a smaller dog breed do I judge them? No. So educate before you discriminate

Thanks again Gina!! I could not have asked for more concise, clear cut corroboration for myRead More premise, than that which you have provided. Please keep it up as I pass these on to friends and we get a good laugh at the irony of it all.
