The next time someone spouts nonsense...

...about how "pit bulls" are the problem, send 'em to this blog.

Dog Attacks You Never Hear About.

The "pit bull" problem is non-existent. It is perceived as a problem because of political hyperbole and fear mongering (usually for self-glory), and mainstream media's failure to adequately research what they print or a political bias.

TODAY! Toronto Humane protest 2 to 4 pm

From Toronto Humane Society Protest Group:

Just reminding everyone to come to the protest.

Even if you can't make it out for the entire thing,
an hour could make a huge difference.
There will be media present & the more people at the protest
the better coverage we'll get for our cause.

Please join us as we take a stand against animal abuse
and neglect at the Toronto Humane Society.

Two hours out of your day can make a real difference
in the lives of the animals.

There is also a donation drive at the protest.
If you can, please bring food, kitten formula,
a dog toy, a blanket, or a towel.

Please leave your dogs at home.
We don't want any paws to get stepped on!

Media spin makes me hurl

There has been at least one nausea-inducing editorial in a one-horse burg newspaper that canonizes Bryant and trivializes Darcy Sheppard's death. The editorial completely ignores the fact that a man died.

Geez, Navigator PR is worth every cent. They're reaching into every corner.

Next thing, Mikey will be getting a call from the Vatican, they'll beatify him when he dies.

Navigator's purple kool-aid and Bryant's legacy of death

My friend Caveat has a great post about the spin cycle Navigator has been running for the past week on Michael Bryant. One Bark At A Time also hit on some interesting parallels to the Liberals' "pit bull" ban bullshite that ran in 04-05. The Toronto Star had the article about Navigator running Bryant's defense on Saturday; too bad it's fallen to an interior webpage. Too bad there's also a bit of spin in it. The stuff that the media has been running this week is so much sweetness and light, I've gone into insulin shock.

Yo, Navigator, I guess your hope to stay out of the story is blown. Now I and many others can wonder (correction - know) whether the words we see and hear are true, or spin. A few of the dim sheeple may have swallowed the purple kool-aid but intelligent, thinking people are throwing it right back up on the spin.

One example is the leaked resignation letter to the City. IMHO, Bryant need not have resigned his job; the leaked resignation was to implant the notion of "innocence" in the minds of the sheeple.

Another is the deliberate desecration of a dead man's reputation. Necrophilia. If the late Mr. Sheppard had as many outstanding warrants as the mediocre media reported, would those warrants not have turned up on a CPIC during the earlier part of the evening when the police supposedly dealt with him? If those outstanding warrants exist and were turned up on CPIC, would the police not have taken Mr. Sheppard into custody?

Ya gotta admire Navigator for their ability to manipulate the masses. Bet they're really, really expensive. If you have to ask, you can't afford it.

Speaking of innocence....go to YouTube and search for honestedits.

Which makes me wonder...was Navigator on the Fibs' payroll in 04-05, when we couldn't get a single fact published to counter the Ontario Liberals' bullshite about dogs? When the media published Liberal press releases verbatim and never, ever asked for a fact to back up the Liberals' claims? When we couldn't get the media (aka Liberal butt barnacles) to listen to and print the simple facts that law-abiding people were being legislated into second-class citizenship and dogs would be killed solely because of their shape?

Bryant's legacy of death in Ontario continues. Wag The Dog has picked up a story about two puppies in Sarnia that will be euthanized solely because of their shape - one seized from the owner's hands, neither of which had done anything wrong. Mayor Bradley of Sarnia has obviously swallowed the Liberal swill. This unjust, unfounded, vague, shoddy and fiscally irresponsible legislation need not be enforced. It can be ignored. If you're intelligent and rational, that is. If you're unintelligent and irrational, "pit bulls" are the enemy. Death to the puppies, eh, Mikey?

Dead dogs and puppies, now a dead man, and the same guided media spin on it all. Disgusting.

The only "inherently vicious", "ticking time bomb" animal is an ambitious politician....or a politician on the ropes.
