FYI: Amazing videos (sadly only in German) on how to treat dogs are down below.
Dogs live in the NOW, unlike humans, who often tend to constantly blame their past and everybody else for bloody everything.
Dogs just want to live and even the worst dog can be turned around with some help and start a new wonderful life, like this puppy.
– Animal Farm and the Archonic Abuse Paradigm (Zen Gardner, April 17, 2015):
This has been bothering me for some time. We have neighbors who treat their dogs horribly. They don’t beat them, but their indifference and neglect is heartrending. It’s not the norm in this country, as most dogs are free to roam most of the time and cared for in loving homes. Neglected animals are often adopted and lost pets are usually taken to the local vet who knows just about every animal and their owner in the area. Very kind and caring.
I know this for a fact as I found a lost pup and took it to her and she looked at it, recognized the markings on its tail, and excitedly said “I know where this dog lives!” She got on her phone and called them and they came and got their pup, just like that. Continue reading »

- A topless protester gets “two thumbs up” and a smile from Vladimir Putin.
- A terrified Mario Draghi reels from a fully-clothed female protester.
In the city use barefoot running shoes/sandals!
“Astonishingly, the entire tribe consisting of men, women, old and young, every one of them is capable of running at least 250+ miles in a single run, without shoes. Such extreme feat of endurance has never been seen among humans anywhere else in the world.”
– Obama: “I’m a warrior for the middle class” (CBS News, Sep 22, 2011):
President Obama took his jobs plan to the people of Ohio on Thursday, urging a rowdy audience in House Speaker John Boehner’s home state to help him “pass this bill!” – and proclaiming to the crowd that “I’m a warrior for the middle class.”
Mr. Obama, speaking in front of Cincinnati’s Brent Spence Bridge, specifically called on Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell to help pass his jobs plan and “help rebuild America.”
– There’s Only One Way to Stop a Murderous Government (The Daily Sheeple, March 12, 2015):
I’m sure by now, most of you have heard of the infamous Milgram experiment that was conducted in the early 60’s. I’ll save you the details since, if you’re like me, you’ve probably read about it a dozen times or more already. It’s one of most popular experiments to cite, because it says so much about the nature of evil, and the darkest potential of the human spirit; and anyone who understands the dangers posed by government power, could probably describe the experiment from memory.
In short, Milgram provided an answer to the most tragic question in human history. How do so many good people wind up doing horrific things to their fellow-man? How is it that when the Nazis had to answer for their crimes, all they could say for themselves was “I was just following orders.” Continue reading »
– Flash Boys’ Michael Lewis Warns “The Problem’s Not Just HFT, The Problem Is The Entire System” (ZeroHedge, March 13, 2015):
As HFT shops begin to turn on each other, it seems appropriate to reflect on the impact that Michael Lewis’ Flash Boys book had on exposing the ugly truth that many have been discussing for years in US (and international) equity (and non-equity) markets. As Lewis concludes, after explaining the attacks he has suffered from the HFT industry, “If I didn’t do more to distinguish ‘good’ H.F.T. from ‘bad’ H.F.T., it was because I saw, early on, that there was no practical way for me or anyone else… to do it. … The big banks and the exchanges [have] been paid to compromise investors’ interests while pretending to guard those interests. I was surprised more people weren’t angry with them.”

– Russian anti-Semitism rears its head in wake of Putin foe’s murder (Haaretz, March 3, 2015):
Boris Nemtsov wasn’t murdered because he was Jewish; but his background has renewed the discussion of what it means to be Jewish in Russia today.
Let’s make something clear: Boris Nemtsov was not murdered because he was Jewish (or half Jewish). The prominent 55-year-old politician was most likely killed because of his vociferous, unwavering rejection of the war in Ukraine. He was gunned down near the Kremlin, in front of his Ukrainian girlfriend, just days before an anti-war rally in Moscow that he had partly organized. According to Ukraine’s president, Petro Poroshenko, Nemtsov had evidence of Russia’s role in the war, and was on the verge of revealing it. Continue reading »

– After 75 Years, Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” Will Be Re-Printed In Germany (ZeroHedge, Feb 25, 2015):
Times, they are a’changing. For the first time in 75 years, according to multiple reports, CBS News reports, a new edition of Adolf Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” will be bound for sale in bookstores in Germany. While the book, long known as “the Nazi bible,” is widely available in the U.S. and much of the English-speaking world, it was for years banned from being reprinted in Germany over fears it would reignite the passions that plunged the country into World War II. Still, amid rising anti-semitism across Europe and a surge in nationalism, the timing is odd and as the head of Munich’s Jewish community exclaimed, “this book is most evil.” Continue reading »
