"Dumbass thing I got forwarded at work" of the day

Have you ever heard that a dog "knows" when an earthquake is about to hit?

Have you ever heard that a dog can "sense" when a tornado is stirring up, even 20 miles away?


Do you remember hearing that before the December tsunami struck Southeast Asia, dogs started running frantically away from the seashore, at breakneck speed?


Do you know that dogs can detect cancer and other serious illnesses and danger of fire?


Somehow they always know when they can 'go for a ride' before you even ask and how do those dogs and cats get home from hundreds of miles away?


I'm a firm believer that animals - and especially dogs - have keen insights into the Truth.


And you can't tell me that dogs can't sense a potentially terrible disaster well in advance


Simply said, a dog just KNOWS when something isn't right...when impending doom is upon us..they'll always try to warn us.... !!




I don't like to let these things slide, so here is my response:

We've got a war in Iraq that's costing $4,000 a second...

We're paying for it by borrowing money from the Chinese that we'll have to pay back later (with interest)...

Gas prices are $4 a gallon, on their way to $8 a gallon by next summer without any semblance of an energy policy in place...

Our infrastructure, from bridges in Minnesota to levees in New Orleans and Iowa, is falling apart...

And you're going to make your voting decision based off an emailed photo of a dog peeing...

Both candidates have spent their lives in public service. Read their speeches. Find out their positions on the issues. Vote for the best man for the job.

Got an apology and a few congrats from others on the Reply All list. Just trying the kill the next "Obama is a gay atheist muslim terrorist" email before it gets started...

Heh. Then you can respond with a universal bumper sticker: "Nuke a godless communist gay baby seal for Christ."

Why does everyone keep insisting that we don't have an energy policy? We've got one, it just happened to be written by and for the benefit of the oil companies. Mission accomplished.

I do not say this to trash the oil companies, I'm trashing the current crop of oil executives who traded their Texas offices for DC addresses and somehow thought that bit about "promoting the general welfare" only applied to them.

The oil companies aren't even doing as good as you might expect (for a company that had their product multiply in price by a factor of 7 in a short period of time). They're getting eaten alive by materials and wage inflation. They're barely building any additional capacity. Chevron had a reserve replacement ratio of 10% last year. Total said that the replacement cost of every barrel they pump is at least $80 a barrel.

...But I will grant you that oil execs have worked things out obscenely well for themselves.

Hey, that's "gay atheist muslim radical christian terrorist" to you, buddy. And you didn't even point out that he's, well, not entirely caucasian, and some might even say, "uppity."

Prepare to watch the American media making collective fools of themselves.
