    First and Gold 25th Edition!

    I was given my first dog when I was 8. I've had 3 since then and I live in a family who all have at least one dog (my sister has 4!) Whenever I meet someone who "doesn't like dogs" I'm kind of shocked and I think "why NOT??"

    But dogs are different things to different people and yes, to different cultures also. I'd venture to say that most animal abuse happens in low income to poverty stricken areas. Mean people beat their animals, starve them and tie them up without thinking twice. Is it bc of the way they were brought up? Maybe. Did they see someone else do it first? Probably.

    I lived in Albuquerque for 7 years and was shocked by the amount of animal abuse that was reported almost on a weekly basis - mostly in poor neighborhoods.

    But to answer your point: I don't really care what brought Vick to commit the crimes. He knew it was wrong and the utter gruesomeness with which they were carried out makes Michael Vick a dangerous person - even today.

    That said, I believe everyone deserves a second chance. It's up to him now. And it won't be an easy road by any stretch. Just think of how far he has to crawl before he can begin to walk. He'll be followed by protesters for years, he'll pay fines, he's lost most of his fortune and still has millions left to pay back to the Falcons.

    Now he absolutely deserves what he got. But at what point do you take your foot off the throat - even though he lacked the will to grant his victims the same...

    The problem was trying to show exactly how WILD the water was. Most of the time I was humming that stick out there and the wind was practically blowing it back in my face. Winds were ultra high. I don't think I could swim in that water. It's hard to show on these videos. I was being blow backward and the dog was casually jumping in. LOL

    Cool stuff. Of course after the first video I would've changed it up some instead of playing fetch in each one. U can tell she loves the water though. Should buy her a mini pool for the backyard.

    But we hear nothing about it from the media. I am neither a republican or a democrat so the media really ticks me off.

    Nation Going $20 Trillion in Debt?

    This should blow your mind....

    Check out this website and the below article from it. United States Justice Foundation

    April 1st 2009
    AP- WASHINGTON D.C. - In a move certain to fuel the debate over Obama’s qualifications for the presidency, the group “Americans for Freedom of Information” has released copies of President Obama’s college transcripts from Occidental College. Released today, the transcript indicates that Obama, under the name Barry Soetoro, received financial aid as a foreign student from Indonesia as an undergraduate at the school. The transcript was released by Occidental College in compliance with a court order in a suit brought by the group in the Superior Court of California. The transcript shows that Obama (Soetoro) applied for financial aid and was awarded a fellowship for foreign students from the Fulbright Foundation Scholarship program. To qualify, for the scholarship, a student must claim foreign citizenship. This document would seem to provide the smoking gun that many of Obama’s detractors have been seeking.

    The news has created a firestorm at the White House as the release casts increasing doubt about Obama’s legitimacy and qualification to serve as president. When reached for comment in London, where he has been in meetings with British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, Obama smiled but refused comment on the issue. Meanwhile, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs scoffed at the report stating that this was obviously another attempt by a right-wing conservative group to discredit the president and undermine the administration’s efforts to move the country in a new direction.

    Britain's Daily Mail has also carried the story in a front-page article titled, “Obama Eligibility Questioned”, leading some to speculate that the story may overshadow economic issues on Obama’s first official visit to the U.K.

    In a related matter, under growing pressure from several groups, Justice Antonin Scalia announced that the Supreme Court agreed on Tuesday to hear arguments concerning Obama’s legal eligibility to serve as President in a case brought by Leo Donofrio of New Jersey. This lawsuit claims Obama's dual citizenship disqualified him from serving as president. Donofrio’s case is just one of 18 suits brought by citizens demanding proof of Obama’s citizenship or qualification to serve as president.

    Gary Kreep of the United States Justice Foundation has released the results of their investigation of Obama’s campaign spending. This study estimates that Obama has spent upwards of $950,000 in campaign funds in the past year with eleven law firms in 12 states for legal resources to block disclosure of any of his personal records. Mr. Kreep indicated that the investigation is still ongoing but that the final report will be provided to the U.S. attorney general, Eric Holder. Mr. Holder has refused to comment on the matter.

    2009 Free Agent draft class

    OT, Sam McNaulty, Clark-Atlanta
    OT Augustus Parrish, Kent State
    are two I am watching closely

    OLB, Jonathan Casillas, Wisconsin
    I will not be surprised to see him on IR but he could be the steal of the 2009 draft.

    OC Alex Fletcher, Stanford
    It may take a year or two of pro training to get his strength up there but he might have what it takes to OC for the Saints.

    DL Jermey Parnell, Ole Miss
    How can you not wonder about this basketball player?
    6-8, 242,

    Just turn the printing press to max and keep them from burning out works also. This bail out will bite us in the butt soon than most think.
