Default No More Pooches!

Are these people reaching, or what?

Polluting pets: the devastating impact of man's best friend - Yahoo! News

I hear Ken is out snuffing all the pooches he can find as we speak.

It's getting dumber by the day folks.

Default Quote Day.

"Who can endure a doctrine which would allow only dentists to say whether our teeth were aching, only cobblers to say whether our shoes hurt us, and only governments to tell us whether we were being well governed?"

"Bureaucrats like to say, you will go to this school, because we said so, and you will be taught according to this program, because we said so and we know best. Those of us with confidence in markets think you could do better deciding for yourself. Neither the bureaucrats nor the freedom lovers can judge what's in your interest better than you can. One big difference is, we know what we don't know, while they think they know everything."

"Remember those kids in school you really hated? You know the ones, the hall monitors, the classroom snitches, the teacher suck-ups? Well, those are the kids who grow up to be our politicians and bureaucrats and regulators. They are the freedom haters. They are the ones who insist that everyone must have a license or permit or pass or certificate or badge or prescription or degree or Real ID card issued by them before you can do anything."

"When Oregon imposed a limit of 36 percent annual interest on what a finance company could charge, that meant charging less than $1.50 for a hundred dollar loan for a couple of weeks. A dollar and a half would probably not even cover the cost of processing the loan, much less the risks of default. Not surprisingly, most of the small finance companies making payday loans in Oregon went out of business. But there are no statistics on how many low-income people turned to loan sharks or had their electricity cut off or had to do without their medicine. This is just one of the many ways in which self-righteous busybodies leave havoc in their wake, while going away feeling noble."

"A lot of what is called 'public service' consists of making hoops for other people to jump through. It is a great career for those who cannot feel fulfilled unless they are telling other people what to do."

"People used to complain about 'the idle rich.' But the idle rich did not do the kind of harm being done by today's busybody rich, who feed their own egos by bankrolling political crusades on the left which hurt the very people that the left claims to care about -- working people, minorities, and children."

"Ego trips by coteries of self-exalting people are treated in the media as idealism, rather than the petty tyranny it is."

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busy-bodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."

Y'know LR? There are waaaaay too many people like this pushing a personal agenda with cherry picked data. I used to follow up on these sorts of "studies" and what the media will never tell you is that these studies are always later invalidated in peer review. It is time to figure out how we are going to defend our civilization from these most dangerous internal enemies.... the Progressives.

Of course, the entire study is based on the assumption that CO2 is bad.

Just because the EPA tells us that, it ain't necessarily so.

Likewise, dogs decrease biodiversity in areas they are walked, while their faeces cause high bacterial levels in rivers and streams, making the water unsafe to drink, starving waterways of oxygen and killing aquatic life.

And cat poo can be even more toxic than doggy doo -- owners who flush their litter down the toilet ultimately infect sea otters and other animals with toxoplasma gondii, which causes a killer brain disease.


Yeah, 'cuz when you flush yer commode on the cat's poop, it automatically actuates a diverter-valve that sweeps it straight out to sea, instead of down to the sewage-treatment plant............

An' dog-owners are NEVER responsible for cleaning up after, never get ticketed for not keepin' their dog on a leash during walkies, nothin' like that.

Future generations will look on this "CO2 is a pollutant" insanity and either shake their heads in disbelief, or laugh.

The future generations will laugh? I'm laughing right now. The collective stupidity of the human race never ceases to amaze me. My biggest worry is the pooch head count that Ken is running up while we speak. We need to have Algore call him to stop the carnage because that is the only person in the world to get a true believer to slow their maniacal tendencies.

Eons of domesticated dogs and they can't figure out that dogs don't poo in the river. Crocs, gators, fish, and a host of other wildlife and these goobs are worried about dog crap in the waterbed. And we're supposed to be the morons.

Comparing pet animals to vehicles in terms of environmental impact is ludicrous.
