It’s just too much

As you know, Gracie is a rescue dog.  In fact, the day we (and by “we” I mean I) agreed to foster her for a week (which turned into years as we never really heard from the rescuer again) puppy had been scheduled to get the axe that very night.  So I really am sensitive to the idea that it’s way better to rescue a Gracie than it is to get your brand new puppy from a breeder, but this is just too much.

    There seems to be a fine line between crazy like a fox, and just plain crazy. PETA, you are leaning toward the latter. Sea kittens?

    I think PETA’s nonsense really hurts a lot of legitimate animal rights and enviromental groups by letting critics lump them all together.

    That sea kitten bit was crazy! Oh, PETA. What are we going to do with you?

    That’s so funny- I read the article and thought the same thing. I’m so glad they didn’t actually change their name- I would’ve lost all respect for them. I mean, I’m all for animal rights (thank goodness you saved baby puppy!), but that’s just going too far. And, “Sea Kittens?” Don’t get me started. Ugh.

Sleep in safety. Sleep without stress. Sleep without worry. Things children all over the world should be able to do. But those kids who have set foot on this soil after bearing untold abuses and have asked for asylum from us—literally begged us for help, throwing themselves on our mercy—have been tossed aside and, I imagine, can’t sleep. . . . They’ve been treated not only like they’ve done something wrong (they haven’t), but treated in a way we don’t—or shouldn’t—treat any child in this country. We don’t put children in cages. We don’t make children sleep on floors. We don’t separate them from their families. In fact, when these things happen to children, we usually file criminal charges against the perpetrators. This must stop. . . . #stopthemadness #reunitefamilies #asylumseekers #choosekindness #hurryupmueller
My love. She loves to sleep on the floor. I swear: she has a bed. We have several. Couches too! But I get to see her like this every night and we both get to feel so safe . . . On the other hand, there are those who can’t feel safe at night bc of our country’s ridiculous policy. The #GOP has decided that the world’s current horrors weren’t enough that they needed to up the ante and add their own voice to the unending madness. And they did . . . Separating asylum-seeking mothers and fathers from their children. That’s the #GOPlegacy. Does it get more horrific?! People fleeing horrendous abuses, throwing themselves on our mercy and, instead of kindness, we shower them with incivility, treating them as criminals, stealing their children and tossing them in detention. Where is your soul, #GOP?! . . . #resist #impeachmentyesterday #impeachmentnow #bluewave #votethemout #noexcuse
