[VIDEO] Pig And Dog: Playing Together

YouTube -

For more information about Hillside Animal Sanctuary please see http://www.hillside.org.uk/
Piggy (Tabitha) and Puggy (Susie) the boxer playing together at Hillside. We thought this would be nice for everybody to see, especially our supporters who sponsor Susie at Hillside. Susie was an ex breeding dog, rescued from a Welsh puppy farm. The owner was successfully prosecuted for keeping dogs in attrocious conditions. See link below for details

While I try to stay away from these cutsie videos, for some reason today, I just keep coming across them. I’ve also wanted a mini pig and to see how adorable this one while playing with a dog has just heightened my admiration for pigs.

Anyway, if you don’t like watching animals that are such opposites getting together and just fucking around, then I apologize for wasting your time. I personally feel we could learn a lot from this and apply it to how we interact with people…from other countries/neighborhoods/classes.

How I Feel About The “War On Christmas”

Just yesterday with my parents we were discussing this exact issue. My mom, who works at a National bank, can no longer wish people a ‘Merry Christmas‘ in case it offends them. The tree lighting that was referred to as a ‘Holiday Tree Lighting’ was viewed as a way to attack the Christians, their faith and the meaning behind Christmas when in fact it was just a way for everyone to be included in the celebration.

I’m an Atheist so when it comes down to it, I do not believe in Jesus nor do I want to praise and give thanks to something or someone who I feel is about as mythical as Santa Clause. Although, I have grown up celebrating Christmas and come to love it whole-heartedly. For me, Christmas is not about religion, but about being with friends and family, embracing the cold weather and taking time to appreciate the little things like taking joy in giving to others. Sadly I believe that the religious aspect is insignificant seeing as most people either feel the way I do on the Holiday no longer representing Jesus; But I also don’t agree with the greed aspect of corporations trying to capitalize on the Holiday and taking advantage of people during a season that represents love, compassion, selflessness, and respect.

I am an atheist. I love Christmas. I love my friends. I love my family. And instead of getting irritated or feeling attacked because people won’t allow you to say something or you are saying the wrong thing to them, just remember that the fact they acknowledged you at all and extended kindness was a gift in itself. If it wasn’t your birthday, you believed it wasn’t your birthday, and a stranger had just said ‘have a great birthday’ before walking off, you would not feel that they were being malicious and attacking your religious beliefs or intentionally trying to offend you, would you? No. They were trying to be nice without actually knowing your intricate background, including: religion, morality, political views, etc.

It’s the HOLIDAY SEASON…just be happy, be nice, respect and be kind to anyone and everyone. Life’s too short. Especially if you’re an atheist and believe this is your ONE life. Nothing more ;)

California Politician and Ron Paul Supporter, Jules Manson, Is A Racist And Advocates Assassinating Obama And His Children

11fd4959fe4fd7bbf1a1c2e2c54aba40

Jules Manson, a known member of the tea party, has recently been brought into the spotlight after some status updates he had made to FaceBook shocked the online world.

On Sunday, many Facebook users were greeted by the shocking spectacle of a California libertarian and Ron Paul supporter by the name of Jules Manson advocating for the assassination of President Barack Obama. Manson, a failed politician, recently ran for and lost a seat on the City of Carson’s City Council last March.

Seeing as the man isn’t a success in politics, maybe he had assumed that no one would care enough to catch the glaringly racist remark. Or, maybe he just didn’t give a shit.

The Update made by Manson: “Assassinate the f—– n—– and his monkey children”
Apparently he was upset with Obama over a policy matter and this led to the need to call him derogatory names and want for both him AND his children to be murdered. What a fucking asshole. We were taught as children that such disagreements with how we felt about certain subjects should not affect our morality. Sadly, Manson, who is religious, should know better than to call a man and his children Monkeys; Especially when that man happens to be the President of The United States.
The dumb ass politician removed the post about two hours after he had initially posted it. But like most people who are too busy being close-minded, he had no idea just how fast the online community can remind you of the dumb shit you’ve done, forever. Many FaceBook users had copied the image of his post and passed the information along to the Secret Service and FBI. Nice to know that people out there take it upon them to do the right thing, despite our more passive attitude these days.
One Facebook page, Americans Against the Tea Party, posted a screen capture of the offensive remarks and received over a 100 angry and outraged comments in a little over an hour. The following is a small sample of those remarks:
I sure hope the Secret Service and FBI get this creep, he is dangerous to everyone! We can thank the Republicans for this brand of extremism.
reported to secret service…who seemed interested enough to ask for the url and a screen shot
‎”And his monkey children” smfh. That part bothers me the most.
I’d like to see how Fox News will defend THIS!
I hope the FBI has seen what he has said and will be showing up at his door soon.
The best way to stick it to idiots like this is vote to re elect Obama and then Warren in 2016.

Bolivian Drug-Smugglers Attempt To Hide Mass Amounts Of Cocaine With Swastika Wrapping

719766-bolivia-drugs-seizure

Instead of packing the bricks of cocaine into a bag or stitching it into some clothing, these guys have gone balls out and simply wrapped their drugs in swastikas. Maybe they were under the impression that no one felt they would be that stupid, but sadly, they obviously are.

A van carrying 204kg of cocaine in brick-type moulds plastered with the Nazi stamp is the latest bust, as authorities attempt to stamp down on the raging drug trade.

Special Counter-Narcotics Police Force (Fuerza Especial de Lucha Contra el Narcotrafico – FELCN) intercepted the van that was carrying this well disguised cocaine and the driver was arrested after the contents were discovered.

Good luck in the future to Bolivian drug smugglers who took a dangerous risk of being open and honest about what they were doing. Point of this bust is that if you’re going to smuggle drugs, you should probably wrap it in something that more people will agree with. At least, that’s what I took out of it.

[VIDEO] Bangladeshi Husband Blind Fold’s And Chops Off Wife’s Fingers For Studying Too Much

BANGLADESH-CRIME-DOMESTIC-VIOLENCE-20111216-161044

Now facing life in prison, a jealous husband is probably thinking twice about punishing his wife for studying.

Rafiqul Islam, 30, blindfolded his wife Hawa Akhter, 21, and taped her mouth, telling her he was going to give her a surprise present.

After Akhter held out her hand in the hopes of receiving a present, Islam chopped off all five of her fingers. Then, to make sure that they could not be reattached, one of his relatives threw them into the disposal.

Mr Islam, who is a migrant worker in the United Arab Emirates, had warned his wife there would ‘severe consequences’ if she did not give up her studies.

‘After he came back to Bangladesh, he wanted to have a discussion with me,’ Ms Akhter told The Times.

‘Suddenly, he blindfolded me and tied my hand. He also taped my mouth saying that he would give me some surprise gifts. But, instead he cut off my fingers.’

After committing such a deliberately cruel crime, Islam confessed and was arrested. As of now, they are planning to charge him with permanent disfiguration. Human Activist groups are trying to encourage that he get life in prison for what he has done.

It’s rather disgusting that we still live in an age when husbands get ridiculously jealous of their wives and the freedoms they have, and decide they can manipulate their loyalties. Although, the good news is that this woman might have justice and was able to get out of the abusive relationship with herself being charged with something.

Kim Jong Il, Leader Of North Korea, Is Dead

North Korea's leader Kim Jong-Il  speaks

Forbes -

Kim Jong Il, supreme leader of North Korea, died Saturday of an apparent heart attack during a train ride, state television reported Monday. He was 69, according to official sources. Kim, known in his homeland as “The Lodestar of the 21st Century” and by more than 2,000 other titles, is reported to have had a history of serious ailments, including diabetes, stroke and pancreatic cancer.  He may have been on dialysis at the time of his death.  In North Korea, he was considered a “contemporary god.”

Kim formally assumed power over the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, as North Korea is formally known, in October 1997 by becoming General Secretary of the Korean Workers’ Party. His elevation to supreme leader, a little over three years after the death of father Kim Il Sung, was the first dynastic transfer of power in a communist-bloc state. The younger Kim also ruled the nation as Chairman of the National Defense Commission, the highest state institution in North Korea.  His father, whose embalmed body is on display in Pyongyang, remains the country’s president.

It’s nice to see a man like Jong Il pass away after the many years of famine and poverty that he forced upon the people of North Korea. He was a dictator who enjoyed living lavishly, while draining the resources of his country for building a more militant regime focused on nuclear weaponry.

Kim spent a reported 25 percent of his country’s budget on Korea’s nuclear military and ambitions while his people were starving. He showed no apparent remorse for anything.

 Today is a good day, although we still have to see what’s next for North Korea. That alone, is a terrifying idea.
