As you can tell from my last post, I would much rather promote another blog than rip on one I don’t like. To dwell on someone’s counter opinion is foolish and serves no purpose other than to drive one crazy. I also try to make it a point NOT to discuss religion or politics (which I will NEVER do). But the other day I ran into a particular blog that had me seeing red. Now, I’ve run into this blog before. Typical hater-rant blog. Easily forgettable, yet since the subject matter matches my own views on a certain subject (though I’m not a loser who makes this subject my daily obsession), I did read some of it before moving on. However I didn’t expect to run into it again (why would I?). Unfortunately, I did. This particular post was posted a week or so ago, and because I don’t want to give this idiot any more viewers, I won’t link to their blog. I WILL however talk about the subject at hand.
Now, there are a lot of “documentaries” out there. Many that misuse footage, many that outright lie, hire actors, etc. One particular “news” network is famous for using them because its an easy way to manipulate people to believing what they want them to (when in fact their targetted audience are generally more subseptible to their way of thinking to begin with, or are just easily led idiots – which I’m sensing is the case with THIS blogger). The faux docs that I really HATE are the ones that try to villianize the people that are there to help you.
I consider myself a dog lover. We’ve own dogs all my life, as had many generations in my family. Pure breeds, mixed, strays, we love them. Dogs are wonderful, wonderful creatures (and I’m including ALL breeds). Every breed is distinct and each individual animal has their own personality. I’ve always hated the Paris Hilton or Neo-nazi types that think of these creatures as accessories for exploitation, instead of living creatures. Dogs dream. Dogs get anxiety. Dogs love. This is something that is understood in my family and by family friends.
Most of whom are cops. I’ve been raised by and surrounded all my life by police officers (and I’m talking CITY cops). And let me tell you, they appreciate dogs. Many are dog lovers themselves. Expecially the ones that train and work with them. Police unit dogs, and Search-and-Rescue dogs are important members of their team. Naturally they would be upset if they ever had to shoot or put down an animal, but sometimes it is a necessary evil (and one many civilians would resort to to keep from having their FACE KNAWED OFF or keep another civilian – maybe a kid- from getting mauled). It’s not the COPS fault, but the idiot owner who wouldn’t put the effort in to properly care for the animal.
Oh, but I guess to a radical, obsessive trick like that blogger, its easier to have a ready made scapegoat, huh? I wonder if she buys fast food or gets her meat from Wal-Mart? What kind of medicine or cosmetics does she use? Might want to research THAT. (and actually research, not follow groups of facebook – when someone says they get their info from Facebook, I have to laugh).
I’d love to throw an angry Pit Bull or Rottweiler at this idiot blogger and see what she would do. No, strike that, I wouldn’t want THOSE innocent animals hurt by what I’m sure would be a non-pacifest response. Because I totally see her being that kind of hypocrite.
I’m not naive to think animal abuse by some members of law enforcement SOME WHERE doesn’t happen. There is corruption all over this great country of ours, in EVERY organization on SOME level. But it’s apparent when some have obvious tunnel vision and just want an excuse to be angry against the “establishment,” claim they “care” because it makes them seem deep (because they have nothing else going for them but a silly, Perez Hilton type blog). But let’s be clear: the MAJORITY of police men and women would NEVER be purposely cruel to an animal, EXPECIALLY a dog.
And don’t pretend to be compassionate when you have readers and fellow bloggers (whom you consider “friends” and engage in continual cordial chit-chat with) who constantly joke about child abduction, use slurs against women, make anti-semetic and racial rants, tell people to KILL themselves just because they don’t like them or their views or they disagree with them, and have freaky obsessions with celebrity children. You were laughing with them and in some cases, defended them. You have ZERO integrity. And I mean ZERO.
Grow up. Get a career. Get a boyfriend (or girlfriend). Most of all, please get some therapy. Until then, remember your “rage” when you get in trouble and feel the impulse to dial 911. You wouldn’t want “puppy killers” coming to your rescue, right? You have standards, after all. Also, you may want to remember cops get paid crap, and literally take bullets for their jobs. Many come from bad areas and want to make a difference. Not unlike social workers, teachers, and those in the military. Trying to trash them for a “cause” makes you a royal C-U-Next Thursday, honey.
