Friday Hound Blogging

We're coming to you today from the You Are What You Write Department here in the marbled halls of IM Central. YAWYW is a division of the I Know You Are But What Am I Corporation, in partnership with Projections R Us, LLC.


Frequent readers of this blog know settling is really the only victory...er...we mean know that every once in a while one or another of the overlords will step forward to defend their heartless, brutal industry sport usually through the surgical deployment of their logical prowess, rhetorical expertise and deep knowledge of their field. Also, name calling, whining and dissembling, but let's stick with the first three for now. In the past we have been treated to the argumentative stylings of people like Gary Guccione, Doug Pizzi and John Parker to name a few.

The general theme of overlord rebuttal to people who ask why exploiting innocent animals breeding dogs for greyhound racing, then tossing them aside like yesterday's newspaper moving heaven and earth to see that they are properly cared for after their careers are over is a proper career for a sentient being is to respond, "because SHUT UP!." Also, "You're ugly."

But lately a new issue has arisen that appears to have much more potential to harsh the overlords' mellow than anything the animal right wackos could do. To wit:
So much for my summer boredom. Yesterday I was complaining that I had too much time on my hands. Today my wife alerted me to current lobbying activity by extremist Cary Theil (pronounced teal like the color..) here in Florida. Unlike the Massachusetts effort to end greyhound racing, this time Theil and his housemate crazy Christine Dorchak who have used their grey2k causes as their personal piggy-bank to fund their lavish lifestyle are joining forces with the track owners, who want to nix live racing and focus on poker and slot machines.
Now, as you can see the first part of this paragraph contains the traditional overlord opening attacking Theil and Dorchak by accusing them of using the plight of greyhounds as an excuse to suck money off of clueless citizens who are naive enough to think that innocent living creatures ought not to be treated  as ATM machines by walking bags of wasted protein.

Psychologists call this projection because if you take out Theil and Dorchak and put in overlords, then take out citizens and put in rubes you have...well...greyhound racing.

It's the second part of that passage we'd like to draw your attention to:
...track owners, who want to nix live racing and focus on poker and slot machines.(emphasis ours)
As that roustabout philosopher and all around raconteur Scooby Doo might say, "Ruh Ro."  The track owners are like the overlords' Overlords because they own the real estate. No track to race on, no racing. This is a new development and to respond the overlords have developed an ad campaign aimed at the track owners with the slogan "Don't phase me out. Bro!"

Just kidding. We do, however feel obligated to point out that this is an example of Ironicus at it's Maximus. Think about it, the overlords are all like we luuuuves us some greyhounds as long as said greyhounds are filling the till. After that it's all hey, nothing personal Fido, just business. Now the track owners, who were staunch defenders and supporters of the overlords as long as they were filling the till are all like hey, nothing personal dude, just business. Karma Caniculae est!

Well, as you may imagine the overlords rise to this challenge as they have risen to every challenge before and vigorously defend  their right to scratch a meager existence off the backs of innocent animals.

One of Theil and Dorchak's largest donors is the Humane Society of the United States which cons old ladies out of their social security checks by making them think the HSUS actually runs animal shelters-- which is not true at all.
 Yeah! What you think of us now track owners? HSUS baby! Wait. Wrong vigorous defense there bud. Try again.
In Massachusetts, greyhound racing was strictly supervised. I visited three different kennels, all of which were spotless. The hounds were happy and healthy. When let out of their crates they were overjoyed to see their handlers and were eager to play with them. Abused hounds do not act like this. To improve the quality of racing greyhounds in Florida, bay all means... lobby the legislature to adopt the standards that Massachusetts had!
OK, see here's the thing about that: When the people ended racing in Massachusetts the track owners were left with a whole lot of nothing because they didn't have poker and slots. Doesn't seem to be the best approach to remind them of that. Just saying.
But to end racing altogether, will cause the breed as we know (and LOVE) it to become extinct. I have seen greyhounds bred for show-- and the temperament is so very different.
Oh, hey now that's better. How about this: Ever wonder why you don't see horses anymore? Because when the internal combustion engine was invented and nobody rode them anymore they became extinct. Just like the greyhounds will if you don't let us keep avoiding real work by living off them. Now that's got some snap to it, right Grizzly?


Grizzly is friendly and affectionate. He will approach and put his nose in your face for pets. He is very easygoing, but gets excited when he sees his leash. He is will stare at you in the morning when he wants you to wake up. Grizzly would do best in a home with a family that is home more often or in a working family that has another dog to keep him company during the day. He would do well with well-mannered older children, 10 and up. He is fine as the only dog and would probably be fine with other dogs. For more information about this dog, and other rescued racing greyhounds looking for homes, go here. If you don't know about the plight of racing greyhounds go here.

Serial killers have the same MO as Greyhound breeders and those involved in the Greyhound Industry.
Also, so do the members of the National Rifle Association.
It is known as "FRACTURED IDENTITY".
It is a well known phrase describing Sociopaths. Control freaks. And the twisted.
Who else enjoys live baiting with a whirligig?
Who else enjoys electrocuting the dogs?
Who else drugs up dogs so that they get heat stroke while running their brains out , colliding into walls at 40 MPH on coke trips and steroid fits of aggression?
Who else would feed dogs and deliberately, for profit, and cheap waste, 4D meats, packed with all sorts of cancers?
Who else would carry not one, but count them, two defibrillators because of all of the above?
I'll tell you who.
JOHN PARKER
GARY GUCCIONE
DOUG PIZZI
And CHARLIE CRIST supports it.

KYLE "CATANZARITE"
(for real?)

This is what I found out about this loser.
Steel City Greyhounds "helping" organized crime make their "pay".
With "the help" of Marci Anderson in "Shadyside" (what else?) and KYLE CATANZARITE (a loser subby for Sewickedly Academy) KYLE CATANZARITE can't get a break.
Kyle got a problem to be employed. Unless, he too, is tripping in coke.
(or prostitution)

Oh yeah - they visited the kennels and they were "spotless" and dogs were excited to see the handlers - sure. And we're supposed to take their word for it.
It's like the puppy mill operators, who even after video is shown of hundreds of dogs covered in feces and ticks in their kennel, say they "love" their dogs and offer the best possible care for them.
I like the previous comment comparing the defense to steroid users in pro sports.
Greyhound racing defenders would have us believe that Bonds, Clemmons and others never touched performance-enhancing drugs, we're living in an ice-age and the cow jumped over the moon.

JOHN PARKER?
Oh ya.
He and Ironicus Maximus go a long ways back.
(Hey "Johnny Boy"...where ya "parkin' it"?)
Your wife know?
(altho' no surprise you spend more time with your Mafia partner Gary Guccione.
A looker Laura sure "ain't"!)
So, we get why you prefer your four-legged "dogs" to your two-legged "wife". (hands up on THAT one)
Jesus.
You blind boy, or what?
Whatever made you "do it"?
Coke?
However, you being the "past" lawyer with the "no ethics" problems, are you not a little concerned about your "associations"?
Like to the NRA gun-runners?
Like to Mareena Riggins and her pile of Greyhound corpses all over her Kansas farm?
Like to all the tax fraud you are "associated" with with all your "deep South" affiliations, including with White Supremists?
(and without apologies)
Alabama goes back a LONG ways.
Right "pal"?
Bryant Gumbel even knows that.
2004 HBO
Here's just a sample of what he "discovered"...and you being a past lawyer I am sure you'd like to know!
"....deceptiveness and tragic nature of greyhound racing".
Know exactly what Gumbel was saying. Right John?
You.
The man of "ethics".
The way your mafia "clan" tries to focus on the "athletics" of the dogs.
But, you see, John, we already had the "ALABAMA 3000" death squads. (that you did nothing about and, no doubt, probably encouraged)
In any case, we, internationally, with the help of organizations like GREY2K, understand the "formula" you hicks whistle away at.
Breeders, all criminal puppy mill producers of thousands of Greyhounds per year, where only a very small percentage are "good enough", suicidal enough, to take it all the way on steroids and cocaine, pushed by the NRA, headquarters, TEXAS-VIRGINIA.
Oh ya.
Bryant Gumbel had you all figured out.
And it didn't take his color to do it.
Few find homes through "adoptions".
Most are destroyed.
Because, like all you criminal misfits, you tried to make all the "dogs" the very same way as you.
Cannibals.
Forcing them to eat one another.
To survive.
Alive.
And your extra "twist" of course, is that "y'all" enjoy it!
Indeed, loving every dime from it!
We all know what your kind calls this "sport".
Cojones".
(Better known as "Retirement Living"....and all plastered on GOOGLE, in "living" color.
Oh ya.

And tell Laura she is the epitome of "hick".
Good for you.

"Christ's Carpenter", you see? How clever is that! The Best!!!!
He's hoping you will feel intimidated without him having to blow your head off. He doesn't like to waste ammo on "non-believers"! (just "the dogs)
CHRIS CARPENTER (better known now as "C.C" because he took a deep and royal dump when we called him on it) is also a HUGE member of GLOBAL GREYHOUNDS!!!!
Isn't that AMAZING?
Will someone from GLOBAL GREYHOUNDS please get back to us and do tell us WHAT YOU ALL DO ON GLOBAL GREYHOUNDS? (besides all the weaponry with IRA-Mexico-Africa, etc)
If STAN PAWLOSKI isn't in jail by now, maybe he could scratch out something for us , too!(or are you barking like a bitch now, Stan buddy)
And STAN, if you are unfortunately in the slammer, just do what all "the dogs" do....

You know all these Republicans like, Gellar, Palin, Kessler Guiliani and Lieberman..."commandos".....they should take a lesson from Beirut, Lebanon. They are reconstructing an old synagogue there to make it whole again with the help of Muslims, Christians, and yes, Hezbollah! It's called "no problem with Jews", but a problem with their occupation of Arab territories!
How simple is that?
Peace in an instant in that part of the world!
Billion, TRILLIONS.saved and the same with all these soldiers.

Straw Men and the NRA

Where is international leadership?
Where is the common global sense of understanding catastrophes, worldwide?
Pakistan's recent flooding has left 20 million people not just homeless, but without food, clothing ,shelter livestock...nothing!
They are all starving!
Twenty million people who have no help and no sympathy because Zakari, their President, preferred to go and visit his chateau!
And after that, he preferred to go visit his son, in England!
You know what's going to happen to these 20 million people, even if only half of them survive?
Anger.
Hatred.
And yes. They will get even.
And can you blame them?
This is why all the KESSLERS, LIEBERMANS, TOMBLINS, and MANCHINS of America should all have their guns turned on themselves.
They all see the vulnerabilities of poor, desperate countries then sell them their armageddon.And it just won't be theirs, alone.
These "survivors" will then come for us.
Because, we did not help alleviate all their suffering.
We took advantage of it.
And we made " a profit".
All at the expense of our entire gullible Nation.
And all under "Eddie Eaagle".

Why should a woman like Sarah Palin with a child born with "special needs" be obsessed with her identity in ammunitions?
(RELOAD!)
She already has desecrated Alaska and totally destroyed that pristine environment with her obliteration of polar bears, moose, wolves ,deer , whatever dare even dream it was natural to co-exist with mankind.
She took that "God -given" right, away, from both animal and humans, alike.
And where do these obsessions of violence begin?
And where can they possibly end if it is indeed "propelled" by money, fame, power and sheer corruption?
EARL RAY TOMBLIN, one of the most violent men in WEST VIRGINIA, perhaps only surpassed by his own father, may be key.
And if this is so, all the more reason to stop the absurdities that "Guns make Peace".
Quite the opposite, "Guns make Wars".
And it is so plain to see and it is so precise to understand in all its simplicity , it boggles the mind!
THE KILLING FIELDS OF WEST VIRGINIA says more about the "Dogs" and the "Rape" and the "Infidels" than anyone could possibly imagine.
And perhaps the only real fear for these repeat criminals is indeed a movie called
"KANSAS KING".
