Sounds like a Ponzi scheme

S/S should be supporting itself.

We cannot afford more people in the world.

Too many people are here now and they/we are killing the planet's habitat...it's called global warming. And that is Humanity's biggest problem.

That's a very good idea. 👍

DUer MiniMe knows us and how much we love dogs. She's the lady on the eastcoast who used to post about her rescue momma Labs & puppies.

We adopted one of her puppies. I later told her, "See that Moon up there? Missy put it there!!" We loved her so.

I am sure you will find your big girl a great home, Andy. Wishing you the best of luck. And thank you for caring for this girl. You saved her!

They don't accept evolution.

They think people and animals have nothing in common, that we're not related. Only humans have "souls." Etc.

They do not know much about evolution nor anthropology - humans' biological, physiological evolution. We are nothing more than very intelligent animals.

That poor girl could have been killed!!

Teenagers are charged all the time, such as Rittenhouse, Crumbley, etc.

If this girl had died, wouldn't her attacker have been charged with involuntary manslaughter, at the least?

Some parents should not have had children.

Wow! What a p.o.s.!

This is just 15miles from me!

The area is populated with military, retired military, CIA, and contractors.

These people cannot plead ignorance; of course this p.o.s. and the crowd knew what he was saying with that message.

Great quote...

"He who is not angry when there is just cause for anger is immoral. Why? Because anger looks to the good of justice.

And if you can live amid injustice without anger, you are immoral as well
as unjust."

- Thomas Aquinas

Thank you!

I took a number of psychology courses but the best book I ever read yrs later was: "Love & Will" by Rollo May.

Will definitely watch this series! 🙏

Saving Sweet Beagles from torture in the UK

Will Young handcuffs himself to Cambridgeshire dog-breeding centre
- BBC News

Singer Will Young handcuffed himself to the front gates of a facility that breeds dogs for laboratory research.

He joined animal rights protesters from "Camp Beagle" campaigning for the closure of MBR Acres in Wyton, near Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire.

The 42-year-old said: "People are unaware there is still animal testing in this country and it is not needed."



Let's keep signing petitions & boycotting companies & corporations.

This torture is a crime imo.

Good for 60 Minutes for exposing the truth.

(And where's that certain DUer who comes along to tell me 60 Mins is crap, as if he'd know. Sorry.)

Wow! Thank you!

That was very enlightening...and appreciated. I do indeed see your points here....and you are right, I haven't read that much about them and I admit to a bit of prejudice about *any* institution called royal.

I lived in England over 2yrs, in '89-'90 and '91-'92 and had the occasion to listen to an after HighTable discussion on the royals from someone who had a casual association with one of them. I'll just say that it didn't enhance my opinion of them.

Btw, that's a most impressive first post! Welcome, LittleStar!
