    Cats and Dogs

    Sitting here this evening when my three dogs hear something outside (what they hear is beyond me most times), so I get up and let them out the back sliding door to the patio. They go charging out barking and growling. The cat is sitting in the middle of the patio. She doesn't bat an eye or budge as they come charging towards and past her. Our largest dog stops short and gives the cat a lick. The cat swats her with a paw and gives her a lick back. I smile, thinking that if cats and dogs can live together, there is hope that someday we humans will figure out how to do it.
    "Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey

    I disagree with you

    there will be no kumbayaa crap, not on my watch.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    I am coming to the conclusion that cats and dogs are smarter than most of us.

    Yeah, well, a couple of minutes in P&R should take care of that!

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    When I was hospitalized I was watching a show that compared chimps to man while the Doc was making his round in my room, one part mentioned that chimps seem to have better memories than men, but still swing in the trees while men travel to the moon, then asked what it is that men have over apes? so the doc says,"If I could answer that I wouldn't be here working so hard!" so I told him that I could answer it, he says,"Go ahead, answer it." I replied with the following,"Men have nothing over Apes, if we did we'd be in the jungles living the good life and the Chimps would be wasting time and money going to the moon just to say they did" He smiled and said,"Good answer!"
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve
