This shelter owner was upset that Obama used the word ‘mutt’. If you watched the speech, I think he was making a joke about his own ancestral heritage more then anything. I doubt a man who was endorsed by the Humane Society has any hard feelings towards shelter animals.

If you have a problem with Obama winning the election (which is obvious), write a letter about that instead but keep the ‘mutts’ you save out of the argument.

Are we going to have to hear this crap everytime Obama tells an ironic joke that some people don’t understand?

 

I’ve heard a lot lately about how this nation was founded by Christian men and with Christian principles. Interestingly, our founding fathers (who were still running the government at the time of the following treaty) made sure to shoot this notion down in the treaty ending our first war on Islamic terrorists. Here’s some of the text from the Treaty of Peace and Friendship signed at Tripoli on Nov. 4, 1796:

ARTICLE 11.

As the government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian Religion,-as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion or tranquility of Musselmen (muslims),-and as the said States never have entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mehomitan (Islamic) nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries. 

Emphasis mine.

Why is this relevant?

Because increasingly, theocrats disguised as republicans and campaigning on “values” have begun trying to foist religiously-based laws on this state and nation under the mistaken belief that we are a Christian nation. In reality, we have no official religion, and the establishment of such an organization is expressly forbidden by our constitution – which was written, voted on, and ratified by our “Christian” founding fathers.

 

Could they found an uglier dog?

And Pastor(?) DooHickey over at VoicesCrazy is up in arms. First off, Stevie, the Humane society is an organization that helps animals – not people. It has nothing to do with Planned Parenthood or Abortion. Secondly, unlike the crazies you run with, the Humane Society believes in birth control (they spay and neuter pets before they can be adopted) – ironically the best way to stop unwanted babies (puppies, kitties, etc.) is by not getting pregnant to begin with. What a concept? Huh? And lastly, someone who is anti-war is VERY MUCH, pro-life. (remember over 100,000 innocent (grown/born) children have been killed (or more) since the war in Iraq has begun. Something your candidate, John McCain, refuses to talk about.
