Obamacare for Whom?

I knew it, I knew it, I knew it.  Don't say I didn't tell you so way back when:
Now there's this new study out that proves Obamacare is making things worse for us dogs, at the worst possible time, when vet care is already so expensive:
That's right, Obamacare is making it good for you people but bad for us dogs.  It's like a huge Robin-Hood-in-reverse, stealing from poor (dogs) and giving to the rich (people).

Why I'm Boycotting the NCAAs

I can't support any tournament that would permit teams that use such offensive depictions of canines, depicting us as brutal, savage beasts.  Until Gonzaga changes its mascot or is barred from competition, I will not watch nor follow anything having to do with NCAA basketball.  I hope you will join me in my protest.  Let's hit them where it hurts.

Guns Don’t Kill People . . .

. . . Dogs kill people.  Well, not for lack of trying at least.  There’s a big story all over the internet: 
“35-year-old Gregory Dale Lanier was driving with his pet pooch on Saturday when the dog kicked a .380 pistol that was on the truck's floor. . . The gun had discharged, firing a single round into Lanier's leg. . . No attempted murder charges are expected for Fido; police have ruled the shooting accidental.”

I was quite intrigued by this story and with a little follow-up learned a little that the hapless police don’t know.  The dog in question is Paladin (no not ‘Fido’ as the reporter mistakenly identified him, and like all dogs, he resents being referred to as a ‘pooch’).  Paladin had been repeatedly abused by Mr. Lanier.  Finally, Paladin had enough and saw his opportunity.  He was clever and the police never suspected a cute doggie of a malicious attack.  So now I ask you, if guns are outlawed, as some of our leaders propose, what could Paladin have done?
