Dog Walker

...and keep dogging that cross-eyed cunt before he does any more damage. If California can recall a guy like Gray Davis and replace him with a flabby, egotistical, gap-toothed baboon like Arnold Schwarzenegger, then Wisconsin can 86 this clown.

What seems to be elided over by the always reliable mainstream media < /snark > is this little-known provision of the union-busting bill that was rammed through the state assembly with all the industry and gusto of a 12" dildo at a lesbian orgy:
SECTION 2704. 174.13 (2) of the statutes is amended to read:

174.13 (2) Any officer or pound which has custody of an unclaimed dog may release the dog to the University of Wisconsin System, the University of Wisconsin–­Madison, the Medical College of Wisconsin, Inc., or to any other educationa­l institutio­n of higher learning chartered under the laws of the state and accredited to the University of Wisconsin System or University of Wisconsin–­Madison, upon requisitio­n by the institutio­n. The requisitio­n shall be in writing, shall bear the signature of an authorized agent, and shall state that the dog is requisitio­ned for scientific or educationa­l purposes. If a requisitio­n is made for a greater number of dogs than is available at a given time, the officer or pound may supply those immediatel­y available and may withhold from other dispositio­n all unclaimed dogs coming into the officer’s or pound’s custody until the requisitio­n is fully discharged­, excluding impounded dogs as to which ownership is establishe­d within a reasonable period. A dog left by its owner for dispositio­n is not considered an unclaimed dog under this section. If operated by a county, city, village or town, the officer or pound is entitled to the payment of $1 for each dog requisitio­ned. An institutio­n making a requisitio­n shall provide for the transporta­tion of the dog.”

No, this is not from The Onion or Andy Borowitz. This is how evil the Republican Party truly is. They want to use your puppies for scientific experimentation to benefit corporate R&D. The "scientific or educationa­l purposes"? That's vivisection, or performing surgery on a live subject. So if you let little Spot get loose in Appleton or Madison and the Animal Control Officer gets his hands on him, he could easily be sold to scientific research for a $1.

There must be a shitload of stray dogs in Wisconsin if this is seen as a source of much-needed revenue.

So, all the jokes we've been making about Republicans torturing puppies and kittens? They're literally coming true. And I don't know if it's some zombie virus in the air that affects only Republicans but we've seen more screaming assholes from that party coming out of the woodwork in the last year than at any time in human history. This is the Rumsfeldian worst of the worst, the bigots, the homophobes, the Islamophobes, the antiUnionists, the pro-corporate tools. Only they're now calling the shots. These lunatics are in the mainstream. Way to go, poor and middle class Republican voters. Be careful what you wish for because...

And speaking of pro-corporate tools, if you didn't catch Maddow the other night, she mentioned that Republicans, just seconds after their blitzkrieg tactic of dividing the bill and conquering those evil, bloated public unions (without even grazing any of the state budget issues), literally ran to a Republican fundraiser in Washington, DC that was held by a scumbag corporate lobbying firm named BGR that also buys votes for other scumbag consortiums made up of home lenders and companies seeking health care "reform." (Fun factoid: BGR was cofounded exactly 20 years ago by racist shitbag Haley Barbour, another Republican Governor and one who's still to this day drawing a steady income from BGR through a blind trust valued at almost $3.5 million.)

That's not to be confused with the $2500-a-plate fundraiser they had back in January the night before they took the House. God only knows why they're seeking bribes graft, kickbacks, payola campaign contributions since there's already a massive Act Blue campaign to recall these Kochsuckers like so many defective Toyotas.

As Maddow says, this power play that's greased by corporate and lobbyist payola has nothing to do with balancing Wisconsin's or any state's budget. If Walker was really sincere about that, he wouldn't have split the bill in half and passed the half that doesn't even address the budgetary shortfall. The state GOP gave massive amounts of cash to the wealthy in the form of tax rebates and cuts and now they have to put the money back.

It's redistribution of wealth, plain and simple.

Redistribution of wealth?

Remember when Republicans, Libertarians and their indentured online porch monkeys were screaming about redistribution of wealth when the black Socialist was running for president?

Apparently, wealth redistribution is Socialist only when it goes from rich to poor. It's only a good idea that's immune to criticism when it flows from poor to rich, which is what we're seeing in Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, New Jersey and every other state that's being run into the ground by a right wing corporate dildo governor.

Jesus Christ, you have to give the Republican Party credit for one thing: Just when you think these demented, vicious pricks have hit the bottom of the barrel in terms of human moral turpitude, they then grab a pickaxe, bust through the bottom and tunnel all the way to China. With the latter-day, post-Democracy Republican Party, there's always room to sink lower.

They're now literally, literally running away from the people they supposedly represent to GOP campaign fundraisers held by corporate lobbyists just moments after putting the shaft to working class people.

Now they're after our fucking puppies and are selling them to be torn apart alive for a buck.

And they're not even trying to hide it, anymore, because they found a way to shit on the people with impunity. Public opinion, in theory, no longer matters.

They have finally completed the transition from mere scum to actual, living, breathing caricatures.

I hate to remind you of this, but vivisection goes on all the time to all sorts of animals for all sorts of reasons. It's cruel and evil. Besides, if shelters/pounds can't adopt out puppies and kittens, those puppies and kittens will be euthanized. Why are there so many animals that America discards? Also, have you seen any factory farms lately? Those that raise and process cattle, hogs, and chickens for all the meat Americans consume? Cruel and evil.

Not to say the GOP isn't evil. It is. But for every American that loves and cares for all critters, there are probably five more that could not care less.

America sucks, haven't you noticed?

I hate to remind you of this, but vivisection goes on all the time to all sorts of animals for all sorts of reasons That doesn't mean shit, and it's no excuse to accept this bullshit when it happens. I would rather have an animal euthanized than used in this way and I would bet most people agree.

Dusty, I beg to differ. It does mean shit. Did you actually READ my comment? It doesn't seem like you did, but I understand. I get all het up about things too, sometimes. Don't feel bad. I'm angry too.

Myself? I think I'll go with any Native American out there that will have me.

Early on, they knew that WHITE MAN would fuck everything up.

Am I clear, Dusty?

Therefore, your words, just expended, are bullshit. Know why? Because you don't LISTEN.

It's not the GOP specifically, it was mentioned that this was enacted by a Dem decades ago. It's wrong on every level. As the WI Humane Society has stated, neither they nor any state or local agencies have ever sold animals for vivisection. Walker was covering his ass, perhaps, in the hopes that his coffers could make a buck on this degenerative, disgusting practice in the future.

As for the white man fucking every thing up, nice generalization. One doesn't have to be white or male to be a horrible human. As a brown bitch, I will direct your attention south of America's border to see what Hispanic's can do to each other in the name of greed and power.

On behalf of most people, I agree that euthanizing is preferable. I now pronounce the truth known and the matter closed.

By the way, the idea that any thinking life form can be used as humanity see fits is one only held by humanity, and not by the compassionate portion, but by the opportunistic portion. Our God-given right to inflict pain on other living things for our pleasure, as with hunting, or for our use as with vivisection, should always be questioned. I have yet to learn why the pain of another being is irrelevant to some people because it is a not a human, you know, one of us.

Oh, and Mr. Tsis, you are certainly right about the white man fucking everything up. Under the former racial administration, America was a wonderful place, if you kept your head on. I am certain Dusty did not mean to ruffle your headdress feathers, sir.

I know, Dusty. Here is one of my favorite songs related to the subject of what people can do to each other in Mexico. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Invalid_Litter_Dept. If you'd like to hear it, I guess you'll have to youtube it. Maybe it's just humans that suck. Could that be it?

John Myste, thanks for your pronouncement, however, the matter is not closed. If you were to actually read my initial post, you would see my intent. Same with Dusty, Queen of Hell's Bitches. If one were to actually read it, one would see the spirit with which it was intended.

As for the matter of head-dress feathers? Fuck you and the asshole you rode in on.

And that's MS tsisa geya to you.
