Montreal bans dogs and electric blankets.

Ok, so,California doesn't have the worse nannies. We share it with other sick, twisted and "safety" minded scared silly zealots from Canada and much of the rest of the unfree first world.

For real, Montreal banned Pit Bulls, dogs that are mix pit bulls, pit bulls and even look like pit bulls. Any stray whose owner isn't found is to be euthanized, owners of remaining pit bulls must get a lisense and muzzle their dog when leaving their own property. What is wrong with people?

No. But that's what's wrong with the people. They don't want to get bitten by a pit bull so they ban the breed. Draconian in the extreme. I mean, leash laws are also effective.

You are one of them. Perhaps ignorant people should pass a law to muzzle you when you leave your property. You're a lawyer after all and we all know how too many of you cause serious problems with your mouths.*

*to be clear, this is said to make a point about how unfair this would be. After all, I'm very opposed to muzzles on every dog of a specific breed just because a few are damaged goods. And I don't really know if Hugo is "one of them." Neither do I really know what "them" is. Not being too serious, don't take to serious.

Well, that escalated both quickly and inexplicably. What exactly have I been condemned for by you today? I live in a city. Leash laws make sense. All dogs. Life in the countryside is different. In an urban area, dogs should be leashed. Don't care if it's a pit bull or a yorkie.

And seriously, the next time you have a thought, let it go. Boob.

Yes, it did escalate quickly and inexplicably, especially in with your last post. I made that remark to get you to show empathy to the dogs.

Leash laws are not the same thing as mandatory euthaniza and muzzle laws. Muzzles in fact will make more "pit bulls" dangerous and poorly socialized that otherwise would be fine. Banning breeds is also a poor idea and lazy. If you worked with all these breeds that get banned from cities, apartments, insurance plans and so on as I have you too would know how unfair this is to the poor dogs and how it takes away the responsibility and freedom from people. Yes, I was a pro dog trainer once upon a time and seriously considering a return to it sooner than later. I have worked with many "pit bulls" in my life and they are among the most wonderful of breeds. I would only be partly kidding if I said that some people should be euthanized and not the dogs.

And leash laws, they are a different matter. I understand their "sense" because once again people are the problem. So we have lots of fat dogs walking around on leashes who forgot the joy of fetching a ball on a daily basis. Yes, they make perfect sense to urban people centric laws. I confess, I don't always obey those laws and have been given a pass by animal control too. My dog is always well behaved with others, heels well and wears a leash where it actually matters. He plays fetch at the local park, upsets the rule followers with fat dogs who are across the park. They call animal control on me too. Did my dog hurt them or theirs dog? Nope, my dog doesn't even look at their obnoxious acting dogs and the obnoxious owners who walk them.

It might help. But it would mostly keep good people from having good dogs and that just sucks. It might also mean that dangerous people might start raising vicious ferrets instead of dogs. We mustn't have that! They would reek havoc on the local mouse population.

Any dog off its own property should be leashed for the welfare and general safety of the public, especially for the elderly and children who can't handle a scary confrontation (and joggers, and bikers, and utility workers, and road crews...). If you are going to bring your dog into the store, bring some bags and paper towels and clean up after it. And if your dog snaps at me or my kids while were shopping for eggs, I'm gonna snap at you like no tomorrow and it will continue out into the parking lot until you apologize.

And for FredS sake, pick up the poo on the sidewalk. And doubly so if you let your big fat dog with corn filled poop do it in my yard.

This appears to be an addendum to our Atheist pastor thread. I'm not sure that the UCC can actually get rid of her at this point.

United Church about ethos, not belief, says minister who faces defrocking

Atheist minister moves closer to defrocking as formal hearing requested

I think she'd make a fine Rustinian. Somebody should correct those folks - one doesn't 'believe' in atheism. Disbelief is not another form of religion.

“I believe that many who find that "nothing happens" when they sit down, or kneel down, to a book of devotion, would find that the heart sings unbidden while they are working their way through a tough bit of theology with a pipe in their teeth and a pencil in their hand.”

― C.S. Lewis, On the Incarnation
