    A spot of good- and adorable- news.

      yes a nice story after all the stupidity of the Obummer administration.

  • Milodactyl™

    Very nice indeed.

    You can recognize a real man by how he treats animals.

    • Sons Thunder

      So what do you think about Cheney and Scalia’s fondness for shooting drugged and caged animals?

      • NRPax

        That without anything approaching a link to back up that statement, you’re just being slightly amusing.

        • Sons Thunder

          Do you remember when Dick Cheney shot a guy in the face? He was on one of his many canned hunts. It was widely reported and Cheney was roundly criticized by hunters.

          I guess I never heard anything specifically and just assumed that Cheney’s morbidly obese hunting buddy participated in this despicable practice as well.

          • NRPax

            So in other words, “No, I don’t have anything specific that proves my statement but Dick Cheney shot a man in the face, so there!”

          • Sons Thunder

            I’ve included a link for you and, while it may have been extraneous detail, the first I ever heard of canned hunts was when Dick Cheney shot a senior citizen in the face.

            From one of the linked articles:

            Another less well-known incident occurred two years prior to the Dick Cheney hunting incident. (emphasis mine)

            So the accident wasn’t during a canned hunt. Small difference. As for the canned hunt itself? As long as it was legal, no issues. I find it repugnant myself but I’m not in charge.

          • Sons Thunder

            I was responding to someone who said a man can be judged by the way he treats animals. You called my assertion into question. I provided you with evidence that was widely discussed at the time Cheney put a man in the hospital.

            Now that I’ve provided you with proof Cheney participated in these repugnant ‘hunts,’ you are shifting the goalpost and pretending the issue was the nature of the hunt on Armstrong Ranch.

          • NRPax

            Nope. I’m actually agreeing with you that it was repugnant. You did claim that the accident was during a canned hunt, which was not true.

          • grais

            Can you point out specific articles that tells of “Cheney (sic) and Scalia’s fondness” for canned hunts?
            And while you’re at it, can you tell us your definition of “fondness?”

      • aegean1

        Really? You gotta bring politics into it? Do you ever sleep?

      • mickeyco

        You are a very sick man.
