Farmed and Dangerous - CFIA Destroys a Shepherd's Life and Her Rare Sheep

They killed her pregnant ewes to find out if they were healthy.????

Why do they kill first, ask questions later? Why are small farms expected to fork over years of hard labor and valuable animals when large-scale corporate farms get the green light even if caught abusing animals or when their food sickens a lot of people? In fact, they lobby Congress for laws to make sure no one finds out negative practices and to paint animal activists as terrorists...

Well, the damned link locked after loading, but I have pretty good firewalls, so I did find the gist: "An April 17 explosion in the town of West, which is outside Waco, left a crater more than 90 feet wide and is estimated to have caused more than $100 million in damage. The blast occurred moments after a fire was reported at the West Fertilizer plant.

Twelve of the people killed were first responders who rushed to the nighttime blaze.

You need to scan your computer. I opened the link without any difficulty and my firewall did not signal and problems-I use a very popular anti-virus program.

What he was using is tiny url which is very popular on Twitter and other social media. They function without difficulty for thousands of people. However, despite your claim you did open the article.

Bad taste destroys any point the looney media was attempting to make.

You can read it for yourself, you right-wing-lyin'-ass email believer: "Fact Check: Email was wrong about recent mass killers being liberals

By Carole Fader Thu, Mar 14, 2013 @ 8:52 pm | updated Thu, Apr 4, 2013 @ 12:01 pm

An email says that recent mass killers were all progressive liberals and most were registered Democrats. Is that true?

The viral email lists the shooters in the killings at Fort Hood, Columbine High School, Virginia Tech, Aurora, Colo. and Newtown, Conn., as being registered Democrats.“Instead of registering and banning firearms,” the email says,”possibly we should register and ban progressive liberal Democrats.”

A look at what’s known about the suspects pretty much debunks this viral email.

The information in the email seems to have originated with Roger Hedgecock, a former mayor of San Diego and now a lobbyist, lecturer and conservative radio talk show host. In his radio broadcast, Hedgecock did not provide any evidence in any of the cases, making assumptions in some and inaccuracies in others.

The email assigns a Democrat tag to Adam Lanza, the Newtown, Conn., shooter, because, it says, Connecticut has almost twice as many registered Democrats as Republicans. That is true (815,713 to 449,648, according to the latest state records) and it is also true that President Barack Obama carried Connecticut in the past two presidential elections.

But to assume that Lanza was a Democrat because of that makes an awfully large reach. Incidentally, as of the last election, there were 5,364 people registered as Republicans in Newtown, and 4,505 registered as Democrats. And Newtown went for Mitt Romney 51.7 percent to 47 percent, according to official election results.

NO PARTY TAGS IN VIRGINIA OR TEXAS

There is no proof of Fort Hood suspect Nidal Hasan’s political affiliation....

Note the top chart which shows Civilian labor force participation rate. Anyone can see it is downhill.

Now look at the second table

Work force participation was 65.7 January 2009
Work force participation is 63.3 as of March 2013

Yes in this series of exchanges, the Obama voter thinks
1) that calling someone liar is intellectually equivalent of actually putting up a defense or supported viewpoint
2) the Obama voter has no clue about current events and fails to understand the position of his own idol-Obama
3)the Obama voter is frequently confused about what is the topic
4)the Obama voter displayed an EQ of a six year old
EQ?

though i realize that this may be redundant; you might want to try making that 'point' again.
