    Something I found Amusing

    My friend is a general contractor and I am helping him build a house the customers wanted some advice, so I was over there drinking Cha with them, and walking through the house with the general contractor and the electrician and the family Mom, Dad, Brother and Sister (brother in sister in late 20's).

    I OC'd because I never have a problem with Punjabi folks when it comes to Open Carrying. The subject of a security system came up and they asked what I thought ( the son specifically) I said your best security is getting guns and a dog.

    The mother says emphatically "NO!"

    We all pause and look at her, then she says "No dogs!".

    The son and I a little later than had a great conversation about firearms what I recommend where he should go to purchase something.

    I think the kids will convince their mother on an outside dog eventually. They have a farm and I recommended that dogs are the best warning system, and they know when something is out of place. They were both initially afraid of my little ankle biter, the sister even screaming and yelling in fear at first, but 10 minutes later holding him and petting him. I know lots of folks from India that have a fear of dogs I think culturally they must be unaccustomed to them.
    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    IIRC, dogs are considered "unclean" in Islam, and with the melding of cultures in India I'm sure some of that gets passed along.

    Good show Robert. I always "Open Carry" a couple of dogs whenever I go to the park. They are a great deterrent.

    Since you say they're on a farm, how about geese as an early warning system?
    They also lay eggs. (Useful as more than an alarm.)

    A big +1 on the geese. Not only do they lay eggs, one of them will come in handy around Christmas time as a "dinner guest"

    The only downside to geese is that they crap more than any other living creature I've ever known. I have miserable memories of playing golf on a course that was overrun by geese. Everything below your shins turns green from Goose Poop.

    Sister-in-law has cattle up near Cusick. Had geese. Wouldn't let the UPS driver out of his truck.

    Geese are meaner than dogs.
    Provision for free medical attendance and nursing, for clothing, for food, for housing, for the education of children, and a hundred other matters, might with equal propriety be proposed as tending to relieve the employee of mental strain and worry. --- These matters obviously lie outside the orbit of congressional power.

    In this county we have a enough wild ones all over and they already have plenty there not domestic though. My great grandfather had a bunch in Port Orchard and they were great warning system, some folks use peacocks too, but I find their call very annoying.

    Yea they are I remember when I was about 5 my great grandfathers geese chased me on top of my mothers car, surrounded the car and wouldn't let me down. I probably instigated it though the details are a little fuzzy....

    When I was a kid the neighbor got a couple of these for his farm. The County Sheriff kept getting calls. The peacocks sounded just like a woman screaming for help. Eventually they became dinner for the local coyotes.

    1. they do not have a water dog they have a mix that they got from an animal shelter

    2. he pays a guy over 200k a year to keep the dog off premises. they even fly the dog to photo ops on a separate jet.

    3. you have never seen Mr. Sueroto with the dog. you can tell when he is around the dog he has a definite displeasure on his face.

    maybe he is thinking how to butcher the dog

    I like me some Obama conspiracy theories, but the dog one is a little far out there...

    P.S.: I believe you mean, "Soetoro." If your argument is that Obama is a Muslim because he was adopted by a Muslim father and became a citizen of a Muslim country, then it would follow that he would not even want to touch a dog, much less butcher one.

    Not sure where you guys are getting this whole dogs are unclean thing. When I was over there an Iraqi told me it was because whoever was in charge used the dogs to attack citizens. It was a method of control and fear. Dogs are a symbol of fear for them much like a pistol.
    As a result the place is covered in stray dogs. Picture pigeons except they are dogs. Everywhere.
    The Iraqis send out kill squads to eradicate the dogs. There are so many they cannot keep up with the numbers.
    The Iraqis throw rocks at dogs to keep them away. This causes the dogs to become mean. It was not unusual for the dogs to follow us while we were on patrol. They would just stand there and bark at us. From time to time a dog would chargea soldier and that soldier would have to put it down.
    Pork is unclean to the Nation of Islam so they don't touch it. This is not the case with dogs. Here is the proof.
    When we lived on JCOPS (small outposts now called a JSS) we would end up "adopting" a puppy. The dog (s) became a sort of JCOP mascot. When a unit would leave they would leave the dog and the next unit would take care of the dog.
    It got to the point where Iraqi Army and Federal/Iraqi Police started taking care of dogs. Something they got from us.
    Here are a couple pics of some IP's and their dogs.
    If dogs were "unclean" then there would not be any over there. I spent 2 years there and never saw a pig. I saw thousands of dogs. I even saw 2 different houses that kept them as pets.

    Wiki article on Islam & dogs:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islam_and_dogs#Dogs

    Not universal, but they generally don't like them. Now if Obama really IS Muslim <rolleyes>, he would want to avoid them, NOT eat them! On the other hand, if he really is eating dogs... then maybe

    DUN DUN DUN


    He's secretly Korean! <facepalm>

    But maybe.... just maybe... HE'S ACTUALLY ALLERGIC TO DOGS! And allergy sufferers generally avoid that to which they're allergic! He only got the dog to please the media!

    IT'S A VAST RUNNY-NOSED CONSPIRACY I TELL YOU!!!




    I have enough reasons to dislike this fool. His opinion on dogs is so beyond irrelevant it's not even in the same universe.

    He's not a Muslim. He's an agnostic insomniac dyslexic. He's up all night wondering whether there really is a dog.
