JER, you'd better be afraid, real afraid! We like to sit here and talk big like we are invincible to what others that hate us might do. If you think 9/11 was a one time deal, think again.
I'm not a Republican...I'm not a Democrat...I am an independent thinker who decides by what a person has to say, their values, ethics and whether or not I believe they genuinely can help in leading this country in a constructive manner. Too much "party" affiliations!
I agree, HillTopper. I love the Greenwood song "Proud to Be An American." It brings tears to my eyes every time I hear it. It has a beautiful melody and words.
I cannot say how many times I have been almost smashed into by someone talking or texting on their phone while they are attempting to make a turn. Most times it seemed they were driving huge SUVs or trucks. In making turns (especially tight ones), you need both hands on the wheel and not one stuck at your ear. I have also literally seen some people who are holding the phone to their ear with one hand and gesturing with the other with NO hands on the wheel. Some people cannot talk without gesturing. I guess they were steering with their knees??
As a past smoker, the surgeon general was spot on. It has been unequivocally proven that nicotine is highly addictive.
Maybe the forum shouldn't exist.
Dr. Elizabeth Lyerly is my vet and she is an absolute sweetheart and an experienced and knowledgable vet. Several years ago, my elderly little Chi went into cardiac arrest. Whispering Pines Animal Hospital was the "on call" vet for the night. I rushed to get there, but he passed away on the way. I was distraught and heartbroken. Dr. Lyerly met me there and stayed with me for about a half hour and let me say my goodbyes. She talked to me and comforted me. Afterwards, she never even charged me for coming into the office and I only paid for the cremation fee. That was the first time I met her and she has been my vet ever since. She is so kind and caring and cares not only for the animals but also their owners. I cannot recommend her highly enough!
I hope ones that are always so willing to have their usual condemning sessions feel ashamed after upsetting this gentleman's family. Speculation without facts is nothing more than idle gossip. If you wish to engage in that kind of talk, then keep it in private e-mails. My best wishes for a quick return to health for this officer.
Amen, Mom and Flowerdoll. What a bunch of judgmental rantings. Why don't you all complain about the wretched way folks drive on 15/501 and daily break traffic laws by using the road like an interstate. I've seen more traffic violations on that road and Midland than when I lived in a big metro area. If you don't know the exact facts, then just be concerned with the man's welfare.
Amen, Hilltopper! Unfortunately, the punishment seems to never fit the crime when it comes to animal abuse. I worked for years in animal rescue and saw all kinds of horrors done to animals. Animals starved, beaten, left out in the hot sun on chains with no food, water or shelter, burned, medically neglected, etc. Even through all the years, I have never been able to understand how anyone can be cruel to a defenseless animal. It has always amazed me how even badly abused animals can still love and trust humans. I think that one of the best ways to deal with abusers is heavy fines and making them do supervised unpaid work in an animal shelter.
