<quoted text>B.S. town huh? Byron Center has a very tight-knit community with people who actually care about one another. It may be boring to inner-city rats like yourself, but to others, it's a great place to grow a family. And do you think people actually believe you live in Honolulu?

By the way, dating actually implies that you're not paying for it.
So forcing yourself on livestock and a"stuffy white chicken" is dating? Weirdo!!

More like tight-twit town. Every night you go to sleep hoping the sun didn't set on any new people who do not look or worship like you do.
You wish you could build a wall tall enough to keep them out, like your god, Bush, tried. Well his heart wasn't in it. Was kind of a "showy thang".
While you lay in your comfy bed looking up at the ceiling you can feel and almost hear them slipping into your town at night.
WHAT All white town couldn't use some cheap labor. You already have an available shed a bucket and a bedroll ready incase you get a really attractive one.

As you sleep they will come and change your America, FOREVER. Ha ha Ha

Spoken just like the puppet the left wished you to become. I bet they trained you at an early age to hate white, conservative men. Pity. If you actually broke with the mental chains that the communists put you in, you'd find that conservatives are welcoming off all races and creeds. They do tend to draw the line at homosexual marriage, Marxism and baby-killing though. Fact is, there is no way your personal Satan (Obama) will fulfill his promise of the fundamental transformation. You know it's not going to happen. The ironic thing is, Obama is actually helping to foster the very antithesis to his own socialist/communist movement. Maybe he's a double agent???

All but one of your 28 registered sex offenders in Byron Center are light skinned. That should make you sleep better.

So the 28 registered sex offenders might be the next highest demographic next to the 98% white folks. That was from a 2000 census.

Now i'm wondering have all the sex offenders actually registered?
And there might be more whiteys out that who were never caught.

And finally in a town this white and close-knit there are some women who are a scared to even report such a crime. Heck they only earn as half as much as the men who live there.
Maybe the "big chicken" is a phallic reminder to keep the towns women quiet. Ha ha ha....ha

Well, assuming you haven't lied about EVERYTHING:

You're over 50 because you said you were walking the streets of Chicago when the USA first landed on the moon. Your words.

Your own own posts, attacking everyone and pleading desperately for attention, especially negative, are classic social-regressive.

You've yet to provide one shred of evidence of employment. That, your anti-social retardation, your age, and the amount of time you spend on here making a fool of yourself equates to joblessness.

All of the above = outdated loser

That is how common sense works.

Must be slavery as a label has nothing to do with skin color.
Disability is the new welfare and blacks have completely cornered the market on that entitlement. Must be all that mental illness and bad back thing related to never working.

You're lost. I heard about the backup tapes first when CNN reported it! Do you even own a tv? I bet you even don't watch the news, you just absorb your own opinion when talking to your support group for morons. If you want to debate politics (or anything for that matter), I highly suggest you educate yourself on current events and the actions being taken against those who commit crimes. People aren't absolved of their actions just because they told a court "I didn't do it". Time will certainly tell as the truth will eventually come out. Too bad, your shallow ability to process information will prevent you from understanding issues and will only make you look like a bigger idiot than you already are. Listen, I'm trying to do you a favor here by suggesting you off yourself for the betterment of society. America will immediately become stronger without your worthless carcass roaming it. Trust me, nobody will miss you.
Regressive tools like pipedream volunteer their otherwise wasted time thinking they're doing something for "the cause", which amounts to a group of anti-American, class envy anarchist radicals who use anti-social, unsuccessful losers to serve as trolls and poo flingers.

Pippy is basically a lazy version of a door-to-door Latter Day Saints pamphlet pusher, except he just copy/pastes someone else's political radicalism propaganda religion on a Topix site.

LOL There you go again demonstrating your narcissistic, sociopathic, paranoid behaviors again Oneal. Just why should I have to prove to you that I'm employed? Apparently all you have is I must be unemployed because I'm on here and you don't like me. How about you proving you're employed and not someone scamming the government? You're on here as much, if not more that I am. So why is that? You're on govt. assistance aren't you? You're a f'g fat ass with nothing better to do. How's that?

And no attention seeking here, but you will get my attention when your big mouth is constantly on overdrive spewing unsupported baseless allegations, idiotic rants and other bull $h!t night and day. So ... There you go a--hole. That's why I'm calling you a fraud with narcissistic, sociopathic, paranoid personality disorders.

Now prove me wrong. and prove you work for living and aren't scamming tax payers.

Another useless post by Jason. Oh well! Latest polls show 57% of the people are unsatisfied with Obama's handling of the economy. Approval of just about every category is in the negative.

Mine was the American lab. taller and thinner and having a deep chest. You may want to be careful of the "bloat". Mine survived the operation but later died of an enlarged heart.

Anatomy of Bloat___mine had the second.

Bloat actually refers to two conditions. The first is gastric dilatation,in which the stomach distends with gas and fluid. The second is volvulus, in which the distended stomach rotates on its long axis. The spleen is attached to the wall of the stomach, and therefore rotates with the stomach.

Gastric dilatation may or may not be complicated by volvulus. If volvulus occurs, the stomach may twist 180 degrees or less (technically called a torsion). An actual volvulus is a twist of 180 degrees to 360 degrees or more.

During volvulus, the pylorus is pulled out of position and becomes displaced to the left of the gastroesophageal junction. This pinches off the duodenum and prevents fluid and air from escaping from the stomach through the pyloric canal. Simultaneously, the gastroesophageal junction becomes twisted and obstructed, preventing the dog from belching and vomiting. Gas and fluid are trapped in the closed-off stomach, which becomes hugely distended as the material ferments. Interference with blood circulation results in necrosis of the wall of the stomach.

This sequence produces a number of other problems, including acute dehydration, bacterial septicemia, circulatory shock, cardiac arrhythmias, gastric perforation, peritonitis, and death.

Bloat can occur in any dog at any age, but typically occurs in middle-aged to older dogs. There may be a familial association. Large-breed dogs with deep chests are anatomically predisposed. These breeds include the Great Dane, German Shepherd Dog, St. Bernard, Labrador Retriever, Irish Wolfhound, Great Pyrenees, Boxer, Weimaraner, Old English Sheepdog, Irish Setter, Collie, Bloodhound, and Standard Poodle. Chinese Shar-Pei and Basset Hounds have the highest incidence among midsize dogs. Small dogs are rarely affected, with the exception of Dachshunds, who are also deep-chested.

Bloat develops suddenly, usually in a healthy, active dog. The dog may have just eaten a large meal, exercised vigorously before or after eating, or drank a large amount of water immediately after eating.

Signs of Bloat

The classic signs of bloat are restlessness and pacing, salivation, retching, unproductive attempts to vomit, and enlargement of the abdomen. The dog may whine or groan when you press on his belly. Thumping the abdomen produces a hollow sound.

Unfortunately, not all cases of bloat present with typical signs. In early bloat the dog may not appear distended, but the abdomen usually feels slightly tight. The dog appears lethargic, obviously uncomfortable, walks in a stiff-legged fashion, hangs his head, but may not look extremely anxious or distressed. Early on it is not possible to distinguish dilatation from volvulus.

Late signs (those of impending shock) include pale gums and tongue, delayed capillary refill time, rapid heart rate, weak pulse, rapid and labored breathing, weakness, and collapse.

If the dog is able to belch or vomit, quite likely the problem is not due to a volvulus, but this can only be determined by veterinary examination.
