[ Leave A Comment ]

Momma was driving to a job site this morning and cruising thru the radio stations... She heard the end of a story of a man who threw his girlfriends cats against the wall "because they made him angry" one died... He was convicted and of a misdemeanor for this... His crime is being overlooked by the US Navy and they are allowing him to enlist.

Well, when I heard this I was very upset... How can we let a person who disregards life like he did into the Navy, I know that we are always at war here it seems but I do not want people who value life so little to be holding a gun to defend me... I want people who value life in EVERY form, who respect life...

Me request for help is that I called the station and the woman who answered couldn't help me she didn't hear that story she looked via the internet but couldn't help - the Station is B103.1 Long Island Oldies... I went on line and couldn't find the story on there web page or the local news paper Long Island Newsday... I did go on line and found on Pet Abuse.com a story on this but nothing about him enlisting.... Can anypurrr help out momma, she is trying to find out if anypurr heard about this?!?!


Thank you Angel Amelia!!!

To Whom It May Concern:

This morning (4/4/08) on my way into work I was cruising thru the radio stations and heard the end of a news report about a man who was being sentenced to a misdemeanor for killing his girlfriend’s cat by throwing it against the wall. Because he was charged with a misdemeanor and not the felony he could still (once out of jail) begin his enlistment with the Navy.

I am not perfect; I have made some real big blunders in my life. But to think that our US Navy would be OK with allowing this man to still enlist, I just cannot believe it. So a man who by admission stated he threw a cat and killed it for no reason is now allowed by the US Government to join the Navy and learn really how to shoot a gun, be a protector? This person who has so little regard for life. Now he will be trained, feed, clothed, educated, housed, and medical. What did that poor defenseless cat get? Murdered. That is what it got.

Here is the link from the local paper:

I cannot believe this is the type of person you will allow to defend us, stand up for us, and represent us.

I am actually ashamed of us.

"Michael W. Fox, vice-president of the Humane Society, said that, "to call an animal with whom you share your life a 'pet,' is reminiscent of men's magazines where you (a figure of speech, don't take it personally) have the Pet of the Month." It is supposed that the continued use of the word "pet" to designate dogs or cats threatens to reduce their level of respect to the current status of twentieth century North American women. Now that's radical." ~The McGill Red Herring

The Rights of Beasts...

"Experience plainly demonstrates the inefficacy of mere morality to prevent aggression, and the necessity of coercive laws for the security of rights. I therefore propose, that the Rights of Beasts be formally acknowledged by the state, and that a law be framed upon that principle, to guard and protect them from acts of flagrant and wanton cruelty, whether committed by their owners or others." ~ John Lawrence, 1796

 

The First Thanksgiving at Plymouth

Below you will find out about our first Thanksgiving, purrrlease keep this day NO matter what you believe or where you came from dear in your heart, give thanks fur the bounty you have, fur it may not appear much to you, but to anotherpurr it might be a kings bounty... My the love of Thanksgiving follow you furever... (note my furramily will all be posting this)

The First Thanksgiving at Plymouth

What has come down in American tradition as the "First Thanksgiving" was actually a harvest festival. In the spring of 1621, the colonists planted their first crops in Patuxet’s abandoned fields. While they had limited success with wheat and barley, their corn crop proved very successful, thanks to Squanto (Tisquantum) who taught them how to plant corn in hills, using fish as a fertilizer.

In October of 1621, the Pilgrims celebrated their first harvest with feasting and games, as was the custom in England, as well as prayer. The celebration served to boost the morale of the 50 remaining colonists and also to impress their allies. Among the Native People attending were Massasoit and 90 Wampanoag men.

The Pilgrims would not have called the event of 1621 a "Thanksgiving." The Separatist Puritans recognized three kinds of holidays as sanctioned by the Bible : the Sabbath, days of thanksgiving, and fast days. Unlike the Sabbath, days of thanksgiving and fast days were not part of the established calendar. They were proclaimed by the governor only in response to a specific situation. A religious day of fasting could be invoked by a drought or war. A religious day of thanksgiving could be called to celebrate a particularly good harvest or providential rainfall. Although the event of 1621 is known today as the "First Thanksgiving," that harvest feast had many secular elements and would not have been considered a religious day of thanksgiving by the Pilgrims.

~ Detail from Brownscombe's
First Thanksgiving at Plymouth

LATER SIGNIFICANCE OF THANKSGIVING

The religious day of thanksgiving gradually evolved into a yearly Thanksgiving customarily held on a Thursday in November. As America grew and New Englanders moved to new states, the custom of an annual Thanksgiving Day took root throughout the country. The religious holiday added secular overtones, celebrating abundance, family and national unity.

The Pilgrim Fathers incorporated a yearly Thanksgiving day among the moral influences they sent over the New World. After our Independence the light crept slowly onward and westward... yet still it blessed and beautified the homes it reached.

~ Sarah Josepha Hale, Godey's Lady's Book 1865

Thanksgiving was not yet part of the national calendar. The governor of each state would determine when (or if) a Thanksgiving would be held. Thanksgiving did not become an annual national holiday until President Abraham Lincoln's 1863 proclamation. Every President since has proclaimed an annual national Thanksgiving. In 1939, President Franklin Roosevelt moved Thanksgiving from the last Thursday to the third Thursday in November, to extend the Christmas shopping season. In 1941, this unpopular move inspired Congress to permanently fix the date on the fourth Thursday of November.

Thanksgiving has proved one of the most enduring and popular symbols of the Pilgrims. Millions of immigrants who arrived in America between 1880 and 1920 learned "Americanism" from the story of the Pilgrims and their celebration of Thanksgiving. Today, as we celebrate America's multicultural heritage, the story of the Pilgrims and Wampanoag sharing a harvest celebration remains an inspiration to many.

~ Anne Frank, Diary of a Young Girl, 1952

With all the ugliness around her she found a way to find beauty... How inspiring... It lifts my heart to know we all can do this, it is within our own power to choos beauty and love or hate and ugliness... It is all up to you... I choose LOVE.....
