Any Dog Trainers here???

I have a 11 mo old large puppy (part lab, part pit, part black mouth cur, part wonder dog - we wonder what she is).

Someone dumped her in a shopping center parking lot and of course sucker here picked her up with the intention of taking her to the humane society the next day. HAH!

ISSUE: She's very good; sweet, gets along with the old cat not a mean bone anywhere and well mannered - EXCEPT when someone comes to the house. Then she gets hyper excited and goes completely batshit crazy. She so good in every other way except this.

She's OVERLY social - loves people!! Most dog training speaks to "anti" social dogs.

What does it take for someone like Cotton or Boehner to finally be held accountable?

Have we crossed the Rubicon where we are no longer a country of laws but of politics. The editorials and talking heads speak of blowback, but that's not enough. These people broke laws. What does it take to finally hold someone responsible for their actions.

I don't know. There is no civil discourse or discussion. Our government is all hyper-partisan politics 24/7.

Question: Can Boehner fill empty boycotting Demo seats with anyone to give the impression...

of a full house.

Just curious....

More good Rx News.....

I refilled a prescription yesterday for Chemotherapy anti-nausea medication. It was $0.56 - 56 CENTS - for a months' supply. I literally started giggling and dug for change in the bottom of my purse.

Thanks Obama!

I don't think the Torturer's should be prosecuted ....

I think they should be subjected (or voluntarily submit) to the same torture and frequency they approved. Cheney, Bush, Rumsfield, John Yoo, Condi Rice - all them. The lot of them are cowards mixed with bravado and small genitalia.

Please can someone tell me what all the hubbub is about Michael Moore?

I've been out of the loop with health issues and checking in, but missed something.....

Can any think of an instance when privatizing or deregulating something benefited the public?

I cannot think of one instance where a entity or business that was regulated and then privatized or deregulated benefited the general public.

[Island of] Kauai warden sexually traumatized women inmates

I feel ill....appalled, angry and sick to my stomach. From Hawaii News Now:

Two federal court lawsuits alleged that a Kauai prison warden forced female prisoners to watch violent pornography and confess their darkest sexual secrets in front of male prisoners.

The lawsuits, filed on behalf of an ex-inmate and a former prison social worker, said the Kauai warden -- Neal Wagatsuma -- used the public sexual shamings as part of a treatment program for prisoners. But experts said the alleged behavior doesn't fit into any prescribed prison rehabilitation plan.

"You have a sorta voyeuristic set of individuals running a pseudo-therapeutic intervention," said University of Hawaii criminologist and women's studies professor Meda Chesney Lind. "That's a recipe for disaster." Kat Brady, coordinator for the Community Alliance on Prisons added: "It's just unconscionable. It's not only against all best practices but it's against morality," she said. "Why would you do something like that to somebody who has been hurt?"

The complaints also allege that female inmates were filmed as they talked about how they were sexually abused in the past. Former prison social worker Carolyn Ritchie said she tried to report the abuses but was retaliated against and was forced to leave her job.

Farm Bill passed yesterday includes "Intern'l Food Aid" - WTF

They are cutting SNAP benefits and snatching school lunches from children but add tax dollars for "international food aid". No one is questioning that international food aid is needed. Food aid, however, is sorely needed here as well. WTF???
