Hmm. I live about 10 miles North of Riverside and I saw a coyote taking a long greasy shiatzu in somebody's yard the other day.

Bichon-poo?

Note to pet owners: If your "puppy" can get it's ass kicked by a narcoleptic hamster, you best keep it inside...

Dead puppies aren't much fun.

Those stupid useless cotton ball looking punt sized dogs are everywhere in suburban apartments. Shaky little things; they'll try to hide behind their owner's legs when you pass them on the sidewalk.

If you have a real yard, get a real dog. I'm surprised a hawk didn't make a run at it before the coyote did.

I did not RTFA but I like the submission because in my mind that's what U.S. politics is all about: Distraction.

Now, I don't favor any party over the other, but since the people in charge now (and over the last 4 years) have been democrats, this is the party I am aiming this towards. The Pubs did this just fine years back, when they instituted the Orwellian "terrorist" mark on, well, any citizen who doesn't agree with Big Brother. But the dems are doing just as well, if not better...

I think one of the governments' biggest - and most secret - power is the ability to manipulate the public via the media - i.e. distract. For example, everyone remembers the "OH NOES! BIG BIRD!" distraction during the elections. Do you remember the policies being argued? To get darker, while the gov't definitely did NOT want Sandy Hook to happen nor did they make it happen, it didn't HURT things either that the fiscal cliff - reported often enough itself - took back seat over a very emotional event. Of course, being over-emotional doesn't really work with rational thinking, so once again a total failure of U.S. government - by ALL parties - goes totally ignored.

Did anyone ever remember over the last 4 years about the downgrading of U.S. debt? No, you all remember "woo-hoo we got Bin-laden!". Anyway, while Osama was being buried, U.S. debt was downgraded - for the first time EVER - by Moody. BTW, such a downgrade costs the country billions - all on the taxpayer. This is YOUR paycheck getting hit. But you don't remember.

Just a week ago, buried amidst the SH crap, the news was saying that this "fiscal cliff" would NOT affect U.S. debt. But guess what?! Surprise, surprise!! Moody is once again considering a FURTHER lowering of U.S. debt. From the L.A. Times:

"Moody's will need to consider these measures in assessing the rating outlook," the company said Wednesday. The nation's debt outlook after those negotiations will determine whether Moody's downgrades the U.S. rating a notch to Aa1.

This is not a good place to be, people. I'll bet all y'all be thinking of this 'assault rifle' bulls*it that gonna be down, but y'all needs to edumacate yousself 'bout dis debt boolls*it! Word!

Maybe if Honey-booboo wore a "fiscal cliff" onesy the average citizen would take notice. Distract, distract, distract.

DS1970: For example, everyone remembers the "OH NOES! BIG BIRD!" distraction during the elections. Do you remember the policies being argued?


Yes, I remember exactly what policy was being discussed in the Big Bird distraction.

Mitt Romney was lying about wanting to cut spending, and Obama called him on it, pointing out that Romney had not proposed a single spending cut of any kind.

So, because Romney didn't have a plan to balance the budget, he lied and claimed that he did, and that he was going to balance the budget by cutting 0.01% of spending in the form of cuts to PBS. And then, because Romney is a giant asshole in addition to being a lying weasel, Romney decided to double down on the lying derp by calling out Big Bird by name.

So yes... Big Bird was about Romney (1) being a liar about his non-existent budget plan, (2) being a douchy asshole, and (3) revealing to America why he should never be elected to national office.

StrikitRich: "Bichon-poo"? Is that some kind of fancy mutt?


It's when you crap out a scale model of a Firebird.

I love this thread. I can remain safe in the knowledge that when I put all the people who popped in to rant about Obama on my ignore list that I will lose exactly nothing of value.

I feel more sorry for the coyote, nearly starving to death on the "bichon-poo" jerkey bit dog anyway.

Benjamin Orr: Residents should accompany pets while outdoors, and use a short leash because coyotes have attacked animals that are on longer leashes, according to a release from the Riverside police.

Today I learned that coyotes are concerned with leash size.


Yes, and are also concerned with Justice, Truth, and the American Way, like all cute fuzzy animals in nature. Or so we need to believe, because otherwise we'd have to admit that they're just animals, and that's not going to happen.

/also, if we just exterminate all doves on the face of the planet, the Martians will stop attacking
//that's what I learned from the footage of the initial diplomatic blunder
 
2013-01-04 07:21:53 PM  
How have more people not been pointing out there was a 70 pound dog also with the puppy, and that the no one ever actually saw the alleged coyote?

Sounds like murder most foul to me!!!

If only there were rifles chambered in a round suitable for hunting coyotes.

Spartacus Outlaw: Why are they blaming coyotes when there was a 70 pound dog in the yard with the puppy? Sounds like the dogs' owner is in denial.


I know a person who isn't able to accept the fact she came home to find her two corgis meeting her happily and the (declawed) cat they'd lived with for years scattered in gory pieces across her apartment. She insists it must have died first. Um. She hasn't gotten another cat though

Only humans see dogs as honorary humans, mainly because we're a bizarre species. The rest of the world sees them as either food, danger, or a source of scraps when they leave their kills/food bowls.

/imagine if, instead of wolves, early humans formed a bond with Komodo dragons
//now imagine a huge lizard with a poodle cut

Well, what were the real choices? Various extinct bears, cave and American Lions, cave hyenas, sabertooths, huge dire wolves? maybe the last, I don't know how they acted, but without a tame gray wolf's nose and ears you could get an unexpected visit from one of the others. Or worse yet, those other unfriendly humans. The pressure, need to trust the hyperactive face licker Fidofang with the children would have been immense. Instead of pet wolves born to be alphas challenging their owners, people would shrug when they left to try and found their own packs, and just go ahead breed the submissive wolves that never would have bred in the wild and stayed.
