“Sure, Alyss. That's a good dog! Are you out of your mind? That dog was unprovoked. I don't care if the child was on a small bike. The dog attacked the child, NOT the bike.”

The Songbird on May 15, 2014 at 02:43:10

“I don't think that you read all of my comments but I will share again. A bad dog is the result of a bad owner. The dog could have been triggered by the bike. Don't know. It could be that the dog was living it's life on a chain in the back yard. Again, I don't know. What I DO know is that the dog did not become this aggressive without an owner that did not treat it well. In my years of rescue I have seen this over and over and over. So no, I'm not out of my mind. I'm trying to get people to understand that this sort of thing will keep happening unless people take good care of their animals and take responsibility for their animals. (I couldn't tell if the dog was neutered or not but this, combined with ill-treatment, could have caused that kind of aggression also.)”

“Clearly, Lucas, you have been asleep at the wheel for the last week. Bundy has lost in court REPEATEDLY. That grazing land is my land, too. It belongs to all of us. And what did you "skip over" regarding the costs to our government to maintain that grazing area for Bundy? Water, feed, protection....it all costs and it costs YOU AND ME.”

“Of course it is painful for the adults. They will have pain over this for the rest of their lives. But if she continues to live with them, the parents AND her sibling might not be alive in a year. Just what do you think is "workable" after the years of different therapy strategies have failed? Those parents have worked harder over these several years than most of us can ever fathom. Workable isn't an option if the girl hides knives and gleefully reacts to moving to a carefully monitored, locked, secure living situation.”

“"So many".. how many "bulls" bit someone in your state this year or over the past ten years?

Count the number and then..ask why so few dog owners are so problematic....!?”

Sylv Taylor on Apr 5, 2014 at 14:38:51

“You could say the same for quite a few breeds at any point in history. Shepherds, dobermans were notorious for bites and attacks in the 80s. So were shelties, collies, etc. Rotties had a bad rep for a long time despite being generally great dogs. Now it's pit bulls... most of which aren't actually pit bulls but are terrier mutts.”

“Well, there you go Kim! You have just exemplified the attitude of far too many pit bull owners. "Bully" is appropriate for you and your dog. People are told to blame the owner and not the dog, but why do so many pit owners sound like you?”

butrfly freedom on Apr 5, 2014 at 18:25:21

“So pointing out that someone is ignorant (ie. uninformed,lacking knowledge or awareness) is being a bully to you? Discrimination is bullying behavior - which is exactly what ol' Greg is doing, and you as well.

And Pit owners are rightfully fed up with this kind of nonsense and irrational judgement from others. Maybe if people would take a moment to educate themselves instead of jumping on the fear bandwagon that is perpetuated by the media, we wouldn't need to act any certain way.”

“And the problem with your figure of 600 accidental deaths per year? "The way those deaths are labeled. A New York Times review of hundreds of child firearm deaths found that accidental shootings occurred roughly twice as often as the records indicate, because of idiosyncrasies in how such deaths are classified by the authorities....In four of the five states — California, Georgia, North Carolina and Ohio — The Times identified roughly twice as many accidental killings as were tallied in the corresponding federal data. In the fifth, Minnesota, there were 50 percent more accidental gun deaths."

While you're at it, can you document the number of defensive gun uses that were used by law enforcement vs. private citizens? A study from the BMJ (British, so not polarized like a study you'd find in the US) came to this conclusion: "Guns are used to threaten and intimidate far more often than they are used in self defense. Most self reported self defense gun uses may well be illegal and against the interests of society." So how many "self-defense gun uses" were actually declared by criminals?”

GregCampNC on Mar 2, 2014 at 20:34:47

“The CDC and National Academies of Science are my sources for the number of defensive gun uses. If someone has to draw to drive off a criminal, but doesn't shoot, isn't that a good result? But even if the 600 number is half the real total, that's still small in comparison to defensive uses, though I don't see how medical examiners could get such things so wrong.”

“Proud to be a West Coast Methodist. Here's a portion of the Bishop's letter to fellow Methodists: "While I recognize that our brother Frank has been defrocked by those in authority in his conference, I believe that those who have acted in such a way have done so in obedience to the Book of Discipline of The United Methodist Church, an imperfect book of human law that violates the very spirit of Jesus the Christ who taught us through word and deed that all God’s children are of sacred worth and welcomed into the embrace of God’s grace. I believe that the time has come for we United Methodists to stand on the side of Jesus and declare in every good way that the United Methodist Church is wrong in its position on homosexuality, wrong in its exclusion of our LGBTQ brothers and sisters, and wrong in its incessant demand to determine through political processes who can be fully members of the body of Christ."”

“I like what Lisa T had to say about this ridiculous exercise:

"Hmmm....Jesus told the woman caught in adultery to go and sin no more, so we know he didn't approve of adultery. But he never mentioned not to get involved in orgies, so maybe he was ok with those. He also said that if a man looked at a woman with lust in his heart, he was guilty of committing adultery, so we know that he didn't approve of heterosexual lust. But he never mentioned a man lusting after another man, so perhaps he was ok with that. Nor did he mention not having sex with your own sibling or not having sex with animals, etc. etc. Could it be that he just left out the obvious?? And Jesus DID have something to say on the subject. Matthew 19:4-5: "Haven't you read," he replied, "that at the beginning the Creator 'made them male and female,' and said, 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh'?"

Do you really believe that God who caused Light to shine out of Darkness approves of the LGBTQ agenda? I think the Duck Dynasty guy got it right!”

“I don't know why this denomination is still wrestling with this. From what I've seen, a majority of the leadership (at least on the west coast) would side with the father/minister. And at my Methodist church, I think most of the congregants would, too. Don't quit. Be one of the voices from within the church to condemn the actions taken by the Methodist jury in Pennsylvania.”
