I just received an email from Care 2 and it was sent as an Action request in the guise of an Advertisement....For an online degree university. I know times are tight financially for all non-profit corporations, but this quasi-advertising is not acceptable to me.

So from now on I will read the actions a little more carefully, and if it persists.... well, I'll deal with that at the bridge~~~

Hello my name is Kim Noel I live in Revloc, PA.  I've had a horrible week.  My beautiful dogs were poisoned by my neighbor, she allowed her female cat to have multiple litters, and then decided to kill them with Antifreeze.  Let me say, she by know means is what you'd call a cat collector, if that's what your thinking, she is a 37 or 38 year old mother of 2 what if her little girl would have got in to it. This is a death nothing deserves, this is animal cruelty. My dogs did not deserve this nor does any animal.  My boys, Alex 11, and Joe 14 had to watch while their life long friend, their sister, struggled to breathe, fought to stand.  Let me say this is not an acceptable way to destroy unwanted pets.  My girls were innocent victims in her cruel game. I find myself calling everywhere for satisfaction, no one seems to care the local police said I should just be happy it wasn't a child, well they were my children Baylee my 12 year old lab was friends with everyone.  Yes she would escape from my fenced in yard but usually just to take a walk around town visit. I would find her playing down the street or sitting by the fire with a few of my friends, trust me not a threat to anyone.
 
 
Today is the day I've been dreading since Wednesday when Baylee died, I have to go put my little Star down.  We've tried and tried and thou she's my little fighter I have to make her pain go away. This is the hardest thing I think I've ever done she almost died as a puppy I saved her, and let me say she has returned the favor over and over. She was my angel when I thought I had no one my little Morning Star... I've called the Humane Society, the Police, Animal Cruelty,  why doesn't anyone care why cant they educated people that this is wrong!!!! It is against the law and where is the law apparently not on Star and Baylees side or mine.  I have to live without my girls and I have to know the person who did it will not be punished.  I hope everyone who reads this takes a minute and loves their animals and remembers that they are family not pets.  Say a little pray for my beautiful girls and Thank you for reading my story.
 
 
 
Good Bye My Angels

Advocates of human caused global warming to take increasingly ridiculous positions to defend the indefensible

How the world was bullied into silence

 By Dr. Tim Ball  Monday, January 19, 2009

One of the most disturbing aspects of the global warming scam is the number of prominent people and entire segments of society bullied into silence. Consider the case of Dr. Joanne Simpson described as follows. “the first woman in the world to receive a PhD in meteorology, and formerly of NASA, who has authored more than 190 studies and has been called “among the most preeminent scientists of the last 100 years.” Then consider her statement. “Since I am no longer affiliated with any organization nor receiving any funding, I can speak quite frankly….As a scientist I remain skeptical...

The main basis of the claim that man’s release of greenhouse gases is the cause of the warming is based almost entirely upon climate models. We all know the frailty of models concerning the air-surface system.” No, we don’t all know the frailty of the models! Certainly most of the media and thereby the public and politicians don’t know, otherwise the latter would not be planning completely unnecessary, incredibly expensive and society altering policies. But the opening comment is actually frightening and speaks to why the scam has progressed so far. “Since I am no longer affiliated with any organization nor receive any funding, I can speak quite frankly.”

Undoubtedly, there are positions and times when people are muzzled; national security is a good example. I sympathize with young people starting out on careers. I understand the pressure of maintaining a family and paying mortgages. But none of this should apply to science. It’s a measure of the degree to which climate change has become political. It’s also a measure of the degree of bullying that has occurred. Why would a scientist in an organization directly involved in climate science not feel free to speak out? But they are not the only ones who have kept quiet. Entire segments of society have either remained silent or taken evasive action. Few had the courage to even ask for a full and open debate. Now everything is changing as the claims of warming are offset by the realities of cooling. 

Cold weather is doing more to raise questions about the scam of global warming than all the appeals to scientific reason. Even people who don’t understand the science recognize the illogic of arguing that colder temperatures are due to warming. This is causing advocates of human caused global warming to take increasingly ridiculous positions to defend the indefensible. They are making more strident calls for action accompanied by claims the tipping point, beyond which action is too late, is ever closer. Politicians are warned not to let economic woes divert them from saving the planet.  Consider this incredible and totally unfounded position reported in the Observer - Guardian newspaper; Barack Obama has only four years to save the world. That is the stark assessment of NASA scientist and leading climate expert Jim Hansen, who last week warned only urgent action by the new president could halt the devastating climate change that now threatens Earth.

Hansen must know that if the cooling trend continues, as many scientists anticipate, he is in a dangerous position. When a bureaucrat convinces a politician of a scientific position, as Hansen has so forcefully done with Gore and Obama, and they make it a major part of their political positions he is on a treadmill. He has to keep spinning the story and avoid the facts while increasing the threats. Further, Hansen must make sure political actions he advocates, such as carbon taxes, must be implemented before more cooling occurs and Obama’s four-year term ends. 

On the other side of the debate, an increasing number of scientists are speaking out for a variety of reasons. The most likely is because the public is showing signs of disbelief in the entire global warming claims. An Angus Reid poll showed a decline in public concern about global warming in 2008.

Consensus was a major argument throughout the debate even though it’s a meaningless argument in science. Consensus is not a scientific fact. It is important in politics, which underscores the political nature of the debate. U.S Government Atmospheric Scientist Stanley B. Goldenberg of the Hurricane Research Division of NOAA recently said, “It is a blatant lie put forth in the media that makes it seem there is only a fringe of scientists who don’t buy into anthropogenic global warming.”

Some are being more cautious and looking for ways out. Atmospheric physicist James A. Peden notes, “Many [scientists] are now searching for a way to back out quietly (from promoting warming fears), without having their professional careers ruined.”

Decades ago Tolstoi provided another explanation for failing to acknowledge the growing evidence. “I know that most men, including those at ease with problems of the greatest complexity, can seldom accept even the simplest and most obvious truth if it be such as would oblige them to admit the falsity of conclusions which they delighted in explaining to colleagues, which they have proudly taught to others, and which they have woven, thread by thread, into the fabric of their lives.”

The Tools of Bullying

The tools of bullying used against those who question the claim that humans are causing global warming include: 
Expropriating the moral high ground of environmentalism. If you don’t agree with their position you are accused of not caring about the planet, the children, the future. How do certain people claim the title of environmentalist? We are all environmentalists. If you are not a member of Friends of the Earth does that mean you are not a friend of the Earth?

Claiming that funding from some sources is tainted. Why is money from a private source considered more controlling and directing than money from government? Is funding from an environmental group less directing than money from anywhere else? Last year, Exxon announced they would not fund anymore climate research. Why? A company involved in energy use should know what the climate experts are saying for proper management decisions. Companies that don’t do diligent research do not impress shareholders. Actually, it doesn’t matter who funds research because the real test is scientific credibility.

Assuring that the many scientists who try hard to avoid politics continue to do so. They want to stay out of the limelight and do their work. This view is reinforced when they see the attacks and threats against scientists who dare to speak out. With climate they also want to avoid being automatically politically pigeonholed. If you agree with the view that humans are causing global warming you are left wing, if you disagree you are right wing. I know many scientists who disagree but are left wing so they remain silent.

Questioning credentials of those who speak out against the hypothesis, but never mentioning it for those in support. Few ever ask about Gore’s credentials.

Belittling opponents by calling them skeptics, or deniers. Referring to them as “flat-earthers,” or comparing them to supporters of the tobacco industry.

Forcing large corporations and governments to waste money by pretending to be green because they fear the accusations they are not good citizens.

The bullying is over and the bullies are in a panic

It was a child who said the Emperor had no clothes because the adults were afraid to speak up. Now scientists of all political persuasions are speaking out. Consider the views of Dr Martin Herzberger. In a letter to USA Today he wrote; “As a scientist and life-long liberal Democrat, I find the constant regurgitation of the anecdotal, fear mongering clap-trap about human-caused global warming (the Levi, Borgerson article of 9/24/08) to be a disservice to science, to your readers, and to the quality of the political dialogue leading up to the election. The overwhelming weight of scientific evidence shows that the Gore-IPCC theory that human activity is causing global warming is false.”

Even those directly involved in the process have joined the shift as the extremist positions grow. Meteorologist Hajo Smit of Holland, and former member of the Dutch UN IPCC committee became a skeptic because of Al Gore.. 

“Gore prompted me to start delving into the science again and I quickly found myself solidly in the skeptic camp…Climate models can at best be useful for explaining climate changes after the fact.” 

The function of extremism is to determine limits for the majority. Gore’s extremism provided Mr.Smit with a limit. Cold weather is providing another limit. It is driving proponents of human caused global warming to increasingly

Dr. Tim Ball is a renowned environmental consultant and former climatology professor at the University of Winnipeg.  Dr. Ball employs his extensive background in climatology and other fields as an advisor to the International Climate Science Coalition, Friends of Science and the Frontier Centre for Public Policy.”

Porter on Vick: 'All it was was dogs'

Miami Dolphins linebacker Joey Porter commented on the possible reinstatement of former Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick and, as usual, Porter shot right from the lip, according to a report on EPSN.com. Vick was convicted for his role in a dogfighting ring and is serving time in a Kansas federal prison. He's scheduled to be released next summer.

"He's already been punished enough," said Porter (referring to Vick's possible reinstatement after serving his sentence), who owns a pair of pit bulls and a Maltese. "They gave him his penalty. He paid his penalty. What else should they do to him now?

"All it was was dogs. They act like they don't even like pit bulls anyway. That's the funny thing about it if you want to get back on that topic. I got pit bulls, I got to put them under a different breed just to travel. So you can't even fly pit bulls nowhere.

"It's a breed they don't care about. It's not like he was fighting cocker spaniels or something that they like. They don't really care too much about pit bulls."

Profootballtalk.com reported that Porter let his pitbull loose and it killed a miniature horse.

Habitat for Horses

thought you might find this useful~divider
maybe you could help in some way

Every horse has a story to tell. The lame, the healthy, the sick and the strong all have a long history of their interaction with people. Like little kids, horses come into this world ready to trust us, ready to be the greatest horse in the world. It's the people who change them.

There are so many people who don't understand, those who walk through life never knowing the beauty, the gentleness, the majesty of the horse.

 
“There are a lot of horse organizations out there, but I have yet to come across any that go to the lengths that Habitat for Horses does to save and protect horses. Everyone that loves horses can join or support Habitat for Horses.”
 
 http://www.habitatforhorses.org/index.html
We need to find a place where they can have some stability.
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed it's the only thing that ever has."

thanks JAY~
