  1. Awesome pix, but…poor pets!

  2. Dog that survived gas chamber euthanization procedure in BACKWARDS alabama, is up for adoption. Look how cute he is.

  3. Stevenson said the gas chamber is a stainless-steel box that’s roughly the size of a pickup truck bed. A computer-controlled pump slowly feeds carbon monoxide into the chamber once it’s sealed and an operator presses a button.

    “It sort of rocks them to sleep slowly. It’s like the cases you hear about where people are overcome by carbon monoxide in their home and just never wake up,” he said.

    Well aren’ you humane. You throw a bunch of animals of different species, mortified, into a box and lock them in it. Then you slowly “rock them to death” in terror, you F*cking prehistoric son of a bitch. might I suggest somebody throw your ass in there next. Soon, God.

  4. That first photo is definitely a photo shop. How on earth would they get a cat’s tail in that getup. Dead giveaway.

  5. If I tried to put either Milly or Zeke into stuff like that they would – gulp – bide their time and kill me later and honestly, I wouldn’t blame them. Why do some people insist on using their pets as Barbie doll standins?

  6. My dog will pretty much put anything on her to please me. The cats are like, Oh Yeah, you and what army?

  7. Anyone who is interested can read a bunch of pages from the new book on Obama. The Secret Life of Barack Obama by Mondo Frazier. It’s on Amazon – I don’t know anything about the author. But since the dems aren’t really into vetting Obama, I imagine the author must not be a democrat….

  8. From admin in comments at His44:

    (my thoughts – the pot smokers don’t seem to have grasped that their rights end where the rights begin for the non-pot smokers. Community should be about taking all people’s points of view into consideration. The pot smokers don’t accept the offer of going across the street to smoke – so they think it’s their right to trample on the rights of the non-smokers. It’s this kind of stuff that made me refer to them earlier as “reinventing the wheel” and “kids playing grownup”. Really, all these kinds of situations didn’t just appear when these people decided to be “re-born”…. Is learning about what has come before “too establishment”? lol)

    Around 8 p.m. on Wednesday night, the 300 people who have been occupying the lawn of Los Angeles City Hall for the past three weeks split themselves into two hostile camps.

    Occupy LA’s decision-making body, the General Assembly, has been responsible for conducting the encampment’s business. As in most other cities, the participating members handle everything from ensuring the nightly meeting take place to doing financial research on Los Angeles-based bankers to cleaning up the trash. But on Wednesday, a large group of dissenters decided to occupy the General Assembly’s usual outdoor meeting space and assert themselves as the new regime. One man, standing at the center of the swirling and increasingly unruly crowd, yelled into a megaphone, “You don’t represent us anymore! We’re taking over! We’re the People’s Forum!” Rumblings of dissent and palpable animosity had been mounting in the camp throughout the afternoon. Informal meetings were held around the clock to hotly debate an issue that had factionalized the camp: weed. [snip]

    The second thing you’re likely to notice is the undeniable thick scent of weed smoke in the air. This is a curious aroma, given that the encampment is lodged between the California state courthouse, the offices of the City Council and LAPD headquarters.

    Occupy LA is also three blocks away from Skid Row, the city’s biggest open air drug market and homeless encampment. Some people claim that the drug use in the Occupy camp is a spill-over effect. Those who buy drugs on Skid Row, especially the homeless, can smoke in a safe, free space among the Occupy tents, instead of buying an hourly room in one the crime-riddled slum hotels along 4th Street. Other people in camp claim the drug problem is homegrown.

    Drug use has been a key conservative talking point used to undermine the various Occupy camps around the country. In Occupy Los Angeles, though, smoking weed has become a wedge issue dividing the camp into increasingly entrenched groups.

    As one original organizer of Occupy LA described it, “on one side there’s the hardcore Politicos-Get-Shit-Done process freaks and on the other are people who think they are starting a new society.”

    Smoking weed cuts to one of the main dilemmas within a leaderless, horizontal, movement like Occupy Los Angeles: who makes the rules? Who enforces the rules? Going even further: should there even be rules? Is this a narrowly focused social movement bent on economic reform through massive but nonviolent participation? Is it a petri dish of something new?¹ There is a wing of the Occupy LA that sees their encampment as a radical new mode of living; one that not only rejects income inequality, but any sort of action that enables one group to represses any other. This means contempt for anything like a parliamentary up or down vote, or adopting the same drug laws as ‘the outside.’ When someone lights up, especially during daylight hours, there is an instant sense of polarization between those who are willing to behave and those who aren’t. Finally those differences exploded.

    * * *

    [snip]About six men donned the traditional anarchist garb: pulled-up hoodie, black bandana around their face, an implacable look in their eyes.

    “I don’t understand why people who want to smoke weed can’t just go across the street to do it?” one young man in camouflage shorts and black sweatshirt said. About half the group raised their hands up and twinkled their fingers in agreement.

    Another young man stood up, clearly agitated, and began pacing around the inside of the circle: “Is it alright if I stand in the middle of the circle? I don’t want to be too domineering or anything. Ok, right, it’s like, if you create a code of conduct, it’s like you’re creating a separatist doctrine. You’re creating an Us and a Them. Why do you guys want to act like cops? It’s the cops’ job to divide us! We left society to avoid them. Why do you want to bring that shit here?” Kat thanked him for speaking and moved on to the next person who had signed up to talk.

    Speaking slowly with a tense edge to his voice, a man in dark sunglasses asked the crowd, “What the fuck is wrong with us? Why are we talking about this instead of figuring out how we’re going to hold a vigil for the Oakland protesters who were gassed last night?” This time people started to clap. Things got increasingly more heated and more abstract—”Are you going to call coffee a drug?”—as each speaker entered the circle. Those who were in favor of the code of conduct were accused of wanting to purge outsiders and create a two-caste structure within the camp. Those who opposed the code were, indirectly, called selfish and short-sighted.

    Ideological disputes on the nature of law, order, and a group’s ability to self-police continued for the next two hours. At a few different moments it seemed as though the group would be swayed to recommend the code of conduct but inevitably someone (usually with a black bandana around their face) would demand to know how the camp would enforce the rules. “Who’s going to take responsibility for kicking people out of the camp?” When no answer was given, the debate would kick up again, and spiral, and go off the rails. [snip]

    A large group, made up almost entirely of men, stood in a circle denouncing the General Assembly and their efforts to “police” the camp, particularly regarding drinking or smoking weed. Anyone who spoke in favor of a code of conduct was aggressively booed. Adding to the morass were four different men looping in and out of the circle, each armed with his own megaphone, shouting their own grievances and rhetoric. When a runner from the General Assembly made the announcement that they would begin the meeting, he was thunderously shouted down, then someone yelled out “The GA is dead!” and the crowd erupted in both celebration and shock: “We don’t want you or your fucking procedure!” One male protester, in an army helmet and no shirt, cried out as shoving matches erupted between several groups of men. The young man who was leading the informal group yelled: “This is the People’s Forum! There are no committees, there are no rules, everyone gets to speak. Get in a circle! GET IN A CIRCLE!” A majority of the crowd abided, although they were openly chastised when the circle took on non-circle shapes.

    A facilitator from the General Assembly tried one last time to get the group’s attention through a call-and-response tactic. He was shouted down by two men, one of whom was shouting directly in his ear. Then it was announced that there would be two minutes of drumming. The loud thumping gave way to spastic dancing and eventually some primal bellowing.
    “There are no rules!…. GET IN A CIRCLE” Lord of the Flies.

  9. “Killer Bee Kitteh” looks really pissed

  10. As one original organizer of Occupy LA described it, “on one side there’s the hardcore Politicos-Get-Shit-Done process freaks and on the other are people who think they are starting a new society.”

    RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRROFLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!

    Behold! The fried brains that gave us Barack Obama!

  11. Love the pictures… Goof wouldn’t tolerate anything like these. Poor patient lil’ pets.

    On another note… Hope all Uppityites are safe and warm!

  12. This post should be titled “Why pets kill their owners”

  13. You’re just upset that none of them is in a clown suit.

  14. How many Uppityites got pelted yesterday? We got rain. Very weird- we are usually way ahead of the east coast on the snow fall.
    Let Iowa take this an example- it really does not hurt if you are not first in line.

  15. Psycho Santorum got zero votes in Iowa straw poll. I need to check out that source. That seems way too high for him.

  16. Fine here, MOM. Just like a typical late November. lol.

  17. BWAHAHAHA on the Santorum crack Uppity!

  18. It was in the low 80’s yesterday but right now it’s down to 49 degrees outside. A real weenie-shrinker.

  19. Bah ha ha ha ha let’s see how long have the OWSers been at it ? Still they do not know what they are there for as a group ? Bahahahaha.
    I don’t care who you are this shit is comedy. Real comedy when you read what they are saying. TY OWS for at least making people laugh again.

  20. been worried Hope all Uppityites are safe and warm!

  22. You’re right utah. It’s turning into comedy central. My stomach hurts from laughing so hard. I gotta stop watching.

    No snow for PMM, or Upps. Everyone around y’all got hammered. All we got here was alot of rain, and wind.

  23. Crazy weather in the NE always freaks out bystanders a whole lot more than it freaks us out. It’s the North East. It snows. Sometimes it snows before it’s supposed to snow. I’ve seen snow in May, years ago, but still. We are used to this kind of stuff. Don’t worry. Only danger I see in this case is, leaves are still on the trees, still green in many cases, and a lot of snow plus the leaves can bring trees down. Thus some poor fella was killed when he was napping and a tree fell. The temp isn’t cold enough for any snow to stick around, which means more wet, wet, wet. More flooding and wet basements and crap like that. But here in these parts, temps of 30 mean nothing to us. That’s not cold. Even in winters, temps in the 20s are considered bearable. 30 in January is like a freaking heat wave. In winter, so long as you can open your door and get outside to your car, nothing is a problem. We drive through anything. We know how to rock a car out of a snow rut. We pull each other out, we push each other. We all just get out of our cars to help you get the h out of our way. Half the people around us have jumper cables. When we are done getting you out of the way, then we hop back in, shimmy a little in the car and get rolling again. We wear boots that grip the ground. We know how to slide down a driveway without falling. We can ice skate without skates! Later, we go outside and have snowball wars. We throw snowballs for our dogs. We jog in the snow! We knock each other down in snow banks just for fun. Our snowmen are elaborate. We keep in shape because we know for a fact, if we aren’t in shape, we are going to die out there.

    Our blood viscosity is different from you constant warm-weather people. It’s like changing the oil to a different viscosity for a given season. I firmly believe this is why so many New Yorkers retire to Florida and then die. They go down there with cold-weather viscosity.

  24. Viv, we did have some snow-rain kind of thing. there was some accumulation and now it’s melted down. It’s wet. Wet wet wet. Usually New England gets the brunt of things. They serve as a warning to us. lol.

  25. The good news is, this will slow down the snots that plan to bang on everybody’s doors tomorrow, half of them looking pretty old to be knocking. My dog hates halloween and, to be honest, she has slowed the traffic big time. Good girl.

    She hates summer and is loving this weather. She can’t wait till it’s cold.

  26. “Occupy Snow!”
    ROFL. Morons.

  27. My dog’s idea of fun is plowing through snow so high, I can’t find her but for the moving burrow marks.

  28. I hope I didn’t buy too much candy. I did get the kind I like.

  29. I dressed up the dogs last year. Those poor things. He was the headless horseman, and she was a witch. They didn’t even keep the costumes on long enough to get pictures. I’m not wasting my time this year.

  30. “Occupy Snow!”
    Miami is sounding better everyday.

  31. Our blood viscosity is different from you constant warm-weather people. It’s like changing the oil to a different viscosity for a given season. I firmly believe this is why so many New Yorkers retire to Florida and then die. They go down there with cold-weather viscosity.

    Thanks for the heads up. roflmao

    Yeah, we have a whole different kind of thermostat. It’s going to be 79 again today.

  32. I hope I didn’t buy too much candy. I did get the kind I like.

    Always wise.

  33. I always get the kind I like. 🙂

  34. I’ll bet you’re Snickers.

  35. […] you gonna dress up? Decorate? Abuse your pets by making them wear […]

  36. myiq2xu on “a real weenie-shrinker”

    Steve Martin, what a hoot!🙂

  37. The Chiquita Banana pups are really cute. That cowboy cat is sniveling under his breath though thinking, “why?!?”

    The doggie spider is the best. That would definitely look make heads turn if that was your dog making the rounds along the neighborhood.
