OK here is the deal>> You can keep your pit bulls if they have only 10 TEETH. And you need toRead More register them with the state by the end of the year. You will no longer be able to have them in the state any more and if you do it will be a felony. if you want any other dog a dog purchase permit will be required and you will need a special dog license or permit to buy DOG FOOD. If you fail to comply with these laws you will be a felon instantly. And of course you can only have dogs if your property is fenced in with a cage to put dogs in when you are not home. There will be a list of dogs you can not own any more in ct because they are a danger to kids, You know these laws are to protect the kids!!! No one should have an ASSAULT PIT BULL. There is no reason for it and they are weapons of mass destruction. Only the military and police should have Assault pit bulls. So better get malloy to institute these laws before more people DIE because of DOGS. Remember no dogs no dog attacks!!! I think these are reasonable DOG LAWS. Now i know the Gun Grabbing dog owning MOMMIES WILL AGREE.

It's not the dogs, it's the people who raise them and the people who breed them. Breed lines areRead More being diluted with sloppy breeding, puppy mill breeding and back yard breeders. While I don't have any pit bulls myself I have met many which were very sweet and very friendly family pets. I do have 3 golden retrievers and am a golden retriever rescue volunteer. I had one adopted golden who was poorly bred, way too large, way too muscular and way too aggressive. worked with him for 3 years to try and correct some of his aggressive behaviors and finally said enough when he bit my older son who was 18 at the time 16 times up and down his arms. The attack was due to his guarding an object and was totally unprovoked on the part of my son. Unfortunately I have seen many a goldens put down because they are unadoptable because of biting or aggressiveness. No one believes it when I tell them. They say "not a golden" one of the most sought after family dogs in the country. Same goes for any breed of dog. It's all about breeding and they way they were raised/trained. Any dog can bite. Any dog can be vicious under the right circumstances. I have seen many vicious dogs that are the size of a big rat! It's not only the big dogs that attack and bite.

tommy boy, is this goon one of your shooting gumbas? A Florida man who pleaded guilty toRead More possessing a stolen firearm has been sentenced to three years probation, federal officials announced Thursday. According to court documents, Richard Sleeva, 48, admitted that he unlawfully possessed three Gemtech firearms silencers at a former residence in Pennsylvania, from 2001 through September 2009. As part of his plea, authorities said, Sleeva agreed to forfeit approximately 117 firearms that he owned and possessed at residences in Pennsylvania and Newtown, Conn. The firearms, which Sleeva voluntarily turned over to ATF agents in 2009, include more than 40 firearms silencers, more than 40 short-barreled shotguns, as well as several machine guns, semi-automatic handguns and semi-automatic rifles.

The notion that Jenny Beth Martin and Sarah Palin are Tea Party 'Leaders" is naive, at best.Read More There are no leaders, just like any successful grassroots resistance effort. Sure, there are some people who form organizations, or who vocalize the concepts and gain attention, but they are not leaders, per-se. There is no hierarchy, no funding stream, and no structure that can be torn down. The Tea Party is a state of mind, a way of life, brought on by the gradual realization of what makes the United States special, what makes it work, and of the efforts by some to degrade and pervert it into something else. Once someone "gets it', they instantly feed into the movement at whichever level and style they are comfortable. The "Tea Party" is not gone. Some jumped off the bandwagon after 2010, foolishly thinking it was no longer necessary (it will always be necessary). Some cowered, succumbimg to the negative propaganda from the national media and political classes (of both parties). Those who maintained the lifestlye, and those who came in after, are the stronger, more committed types who will ensure that the idea will not die and will eventually rise again to the top of the American consciousness.
Police are trying to identify this suspect.

It would make for a nice child's story if it had enough illustrations, you might want to try that. """""" A TSA agent happened to be seated two rows behind us, """"" Really? How did you know he was a TSA Agent?? Why was he seated on the plane? Was he armed? How did the person next to him know you?? Friend, co worker, ............. it's getting deeper and deeper...... This story wouldn't do well even as a children's book and no adult could be forced to buy it , , so you should just give up on this fictional PB story. Or at least research the made up characters and test the veracity of plot points against reality. Oh and; 1) why in heavens name would someone who needs a service dog (really needs one) pick a PB when it is such a controversial breed and having one makes for constant battles every where they go IN ADDITION TO THE HARDSHIPS IMPOSED BY THEIR HANDICAP.... 2) and why is every Pro-PB jihadi ( have your service dog type it in to google for you) the proud owner of a "Service Pit Bull"?? But can only produce the "bought it on line" certification which is issued sight unseen to anyone who coughs up a couple hundred bucks.?? 3) why, despite the apparently millions and millions of PB "service dogs" in existence, one never sees them used by the legitimate, long standing service dog organizations?? Do you even know who they are?? (LMFGDAO!!) 4) HAHAHAHA -------> """"While training towards becoming a certified service dog, she flew a round-trip flight 5.5 hours each way, in coach""""". QUICK what was the airline, date , flight number, ticket price, seat assignments and the departure/destination locations and gate numbers........ REALITY BASED hon, try for reality based.... And lastly, the FLUFFINGTON PEST???? you are quoting articles from the Fluffington Pest??? OMG, I feel privileged!!

@Maria, Once again, you prove you are incapable of rational discourse. You are an idiot. Truly.Read More I don't need to produce receipts for the training (yes, my dog went through training with a recognized organization, happens to be a 501(3)c org - not a profit outfit). Are there "millions and millions" of PB service dogs? I doubt there are even "millions and millions" of service dogs of all breeds combined, let alone just one breed. But yes, there are SD's that are of breeds other than the typical lab/ret/GSD category. Ever hear of Shorty Rossi? Pit Boss? Ever notice what his service dog happens to be? If you could stop trying to be insulting (and failing to even manage that), you might actually learn something yourself. How do I know the guy was a TSA agent? Shrug, I didn't ask him for ID, neither did the person I knew who was sitting next to him. Was he armed? I have no idea. I wasn't next to him. I already had the dog. She just happened to be trainable to handle some tasks that helped alleviate issues related to medical conditions. No, my dog doesn't type. Nor does she answer the phone. Yes, I am quite familiar with a number of long-standing service dog organizations as well as therapy dog organizations. yeah, for giggles, why not some of the flight info? Airline? USAir, Flight on 3/10/12, Flight #0797, ticket price ($647.80 for myself and two additional passengers), departed 7:35 am from PHL to LAX) and I don't recall the seat numbers, but my dog and I requested bulkhead seating and received it. And, by the way, they provided my dog and I with complimentary access to the US Air lounge, and the staff there absolutely loved her. You need a photo of her sitting on the plane next? Or sitting in the lounge? I can provide it. Tell me where YOU live, and if it's close by, maybe we'll hand-deliver it. If you can learn to behave with some degree of class first. And before you start calling someone a liar, you better be damn sure you know what the heck you are talking about - because you are so far off in this case, you might as well be in outer space.

What I think is really scary and a public health threat is the violence PEOPLE do to pit bulls. WeRead More kill millions of them every year. They are tortured in fighting rings, look at what Vick did. Humans are a very dangerous breed. THere should be laws or something to protect the public--and animals--- from people.

@Fay, the KindleFire has the normal color display that doesn't work well in bright light -- like aRead More lot of other tablets. For outdoors, the Kindle with E-Ink or Paperwhite displays are better. You might want to buy their cheap $69 model for E-Ink to use outdoors so you don't have to be as concerned about it getting damaged (rain, sand, dirt, etc). Use your KindleFire indoors. Check the comments on Amazon to see what others have to say. From what I heard, all the stuff on your KindleFire should be accessible on a new Kindle device provided you use the same account. It will even keep you last read page when you switch devices, so where you left of on the E-Ink device, you can resume on your KindleFire and visa versa. I don't have one myself, but that's what I've heard from others that use them.

she courted the tea party patriots in New Hampshire before she was elected, but I think everyoneRead More drowns in the powerful two party swamp that is Washington, DC when they get there. I don't how we change that. I think that fiscal constraints on congress would help curb their power. I think that a simple tax code that everyone pays with no deductions for anyone would curb that power. I think that demanding that congress take a pay cut to the national average wage and pay for their own benefits would curb that power. can't live in DC on the national average wage? too bad.

I am very proud to say that I voted for the first African American president in history. Twice. IRead More helped make history in a very positive way. I'm very proud of my support, and no mischaracterizations of President Obama's performance can change my feelings one whit. ________________________________________________________ Besides, what other choices did I have? Two other nominees who were hated by about half of their own parties? McCain was booed at CPAC. He never met a war he didn't like. Romney had no problem making workers the personal property of their employers. Plus, he mouthed the worst kind of hypocrisy like "Believe in America" while he put his American dollars in Swiss and Cayman Islands banks. Moreover, he was like McCain in that the heart of the party was never really with him. His big break was a lot of conservative candidates splitting the conservative votes against him. ________________________________________________________ If Republicans want to beat Democrats, then they need to promote candidates whom more of their own voters believe in. Neither McCain nor Romney were beloved by Republicans. Republican voters were motivated only by what they were against, not what they were for.

Definitely will add these to my long, long list of "to reads". Maybe I'll live longRead More enough to get to them all. Just finished an oldie but goodie ... but you know? The stories only stay with me for a while, I read so much that I forget what I've already read and after the first few pages, I get into it again and often continue since I liked it the first time around. There will never be enough hours in any day to read all I want to and thank goodness and God for Goodreads and, of course, my library and you, Danielle, for adding to my lists. Was offered a Kindle but know what? I really prefer to hold that book in my lap to read, plus I prefer to use my library ... it's FREE, for goodness sake, why would I pay to read anything but a newspaper? And, even that can be gotten at the library. If nothing else, I just love the smell of a library! (Sorry for my longwinded-ness ... just love, love books.)
