Pit bull puppy survives being dragged behind truck for a mile
They named him “Trooper” for his determination, but the 5-month-old pit bull that survived being dragged by a truck down a Missouri highway for more than a mile is more like a miracle. Two weeks after surgery to close wounds that exposed bones, Trooper is eating and drinking normally and walking on his own, and Humane Society of Missouri personnel are cautiously optimistic that a badly injured leg may be saved. The trucker, unaware that the puppy had been tethered to his bumper, was obviously distraught once he was flagged down, and now a $5,000 reward has been offered for information that would lead to an arrest.

Never have I been talked to so rudely. Because
I was taking pictures !!! Of things I was interested in along with tag that
shows $ & sometimes maker & size … was told they were uncomfortable
with me taking pics of PRICE! Told him that I always did with any other shop /
consignment I went to. (my memory is bad ) especially when one is looking for
several pieces & to see pics when get home one can visualize if it will work
. RIGHT! I TOLD him that I always did …he then said it was a first time for
everything. & it was HIS store & wanted me out … did mot want me to
continue looking …. wanted ~ pointing his finger ~ to get out!
please for a restroom … he said there was none (i knew there was) asked again
~again he said No!’ Get out. (Before I forget .. see I told you my memory was
bad .. also told Jim I had taken many pics there before & showed him.a pic I
had_) ..so now back to the bathroom…. I asked PLEASE SIR …I’ve just S#^% in
my pants. I have cancer, & sometimes this happens … especially over the
last few MONTHS that my cancer is back. So I left the store telling him &
showing him there were two pictures I wanted … said no ….so you BET his
loss. I had to make the drive back home without making any other stops
necessary. That was a Very Long 30 minute drive to get back home.
Before I had & would have recommended ~ but after that MaN did
that to me NeVeR will again.
This morning I went to sign my dogs up for welfare.
At first the lady said, “Dogs are not eligible to draw welfare.” So I explained to her that my dogs are mixed in color, unemployed, lazy, can’t speak English and have no clue who their Daddy’s are. They expect me to feed them, provide them with housing and medical care. So she looked in her policy book to see what it takes to qualify. My dogs get their first checks on Friday.
Damn, this is a great country!
José and Carlos
They beg in different areas of town.
Carlos begs for the same amount of time
as José, but collects only
about $8.00 or $9.00 a day.
José brings home a suitcase full of ten-dollar
bills every day. He drives a Mercedes,
lives in a mortgage-free house, and has
a lot of money to spend.
“Hey, amigo,” Carlos says to José,
“I work just as long and hard as you do,
so how come you bring home a suitcase
full of ten dollar bills every day?
“Look at your sign, what does it say?”
Carlos reads his sign:
“I have no work, a wife
and six kids to support.”
“What’s wrong with that?”
Carlos asks him.
“No wonder you only get
$8.00 or $9.00 a day!” says José.
“All right, what is on your sign?”
José shows him:
Classic Pontiac LeMans owner arrives at Car Show early in order to get the best display spot.
Then, the next classic car, a ’40 Ford shows up and grabs the second stall…
Next, This Idiot woman plows through !!!
She was busy Texting and didn’t notice the nice cars on the other side of the curb she was about to jump – never touched the brake and stayed on the throttle even after impact.
I’ve had this Samsung CHARGE phone and replaced it 3x’s and it is still doing some of the same things! It does not sync the contacts w/o a tech in store putting another account on the phone that I do not use ‘daily’ it is used as a backup…NOT loaded with contacts! The phone …if I want to go to (back) HOME – the TASK Manager will show up. The phone … sometimes will NOT let ne sign-in to twitter or FB … with my passwords and another ‘sales person’ saw that because they let me use their instore computer to show the password that they had entered! The phone …does not always recognize that there is a CARD in the slot. CARD must be loaded before it can operate! … There is one there! The phone … camera … takes and makes me blue – or even red(the red one I deleted in error) .. but if it were a once in a life time shot — to have it BLUE!!?? AND it takes pictures and turnes them UpSideDown … ^*^ … takes the picture completely NOT the direction in which it was taken. ((latest was yesterday when taking pics of papers for my Mothers Doctors Schecules … and they appeared every which way BUT they way they were taken!)) I’ve messaged (from the phone) the problems to four (4) of the people who I’ve dealth with and only one responded within time….the one who I bought the phone from – took two weeks to respond and still did nothing – and the only reason they responded is because someone else I talked with about the phone-(who thought I was crazy) told them! Enough is Enough…..I’m tired of Verizon ((or anyone representing VERIZON))NOT stepping up to the plate and doing something to keep ME as a customer! As one of the sales people said — the problem was not with Verizon – but Samsung because it is a Samsung phone – HE said that it was not his or Verizons problem – YET Verison and this or any Vereison SalesPerson will sell this phone that which I might POINT OUT in the event you and the others do not know — HAS the Verizon name on ALL the phones …. so YES it IS a Verizon Problem! Getting back to the messaging … I had asked them also to give the the contact names for someone ‘highger’ above their heads….YET to hear any names. Like the Store Manager – District Manager – Regional Manager and my next stop is to the Divional Manager! If that does not work … I would find a way to get SOMEONE to listen! … jusT because someone else might not be having the same problem with this Samsung … I AM! and for the sales people to tell mne they knew that SamSung (and Verizon knew) had a glitch with their SmartPhones is a problem that all of the peole who are with Verizon should know about…Samsungs ‘regular’ phones are said to be OK … and YES I have a Samsung TV …. but I HATE what this CHARGE is doing for me. I need this phone, my parents are 86 & 83 – Dad with Cancer & bad heart .. Mom OK .. but I HAVE CANCER — my brothers are dead … an d all of my Mom & Dad’s family are Out of Town ….THAT is why the PHONE and all it can do is so important to me. I wish I had gone to the APPLE store and Bought an iPHONE! AND said to H–# WITH ANY CONTRACT!
Now what can you do? And yes this will be posted!
Whether this is acurate or not – whether she wrote it or not – the news HAS previously reported about some of these things … so read and do not throw stones at me – I’m only passisng along what I read and know ‘some of’ like I know about seeing the hotel receipt for the lobster for two…. so take it as you will ….
Thank you America !
Dear American Taxpayer
I want to thank the hard working American people for paying $242 thousand dollars for my vacation in Spain ..
My daughter Sasha, several long-time family friends, my personal staff and various guests had a wonderful time. Honestly, you just haven’t lived until you have stayed in a $2,500..00 per night private 3-story villa at a 5-Star luxury hotel.
Thank you also for the u se of Air Force Two and the 70 Secret Service personnel who tagged along to be sure we were safe and cared for at all times. By the way, if you happen to be visiting the Costa del Sol, I highly recommend the Buenaventura Plaza restaurant in Marbella ; great lobster with rice and oysters!
Air Force Two (which costs $11,351 per hour to operate according to Government Accounting Office reports) only used 47,500 gallons of jet fuel for this trip and carbon emissions were a mere 1,031 tons of CO2. These are only rough estimates, but they are close. That’s quite a carbon footprint as my good friend Al Gore would say, so we must ask the American citizens to drive smaller, more fuel efficient cars and drive less too, so we can lessen our combined carbon footprint.
I know times are hard and millions of you are struggling to put food on the table and trying to make ends meet. So I do appreciate your sacrifices and do hope you find work soon.
I was really exhausted after Barack took our family on a luxury vacation in Maine a few weeks ago. I just had to get away for a few days.
P.S. Thank you as well for the $2 BILLION dollar trip to India !
P.S. Thank you, too, for that vacation trip to Martha’s Vineyard ; it was fabulous. And thanks for that second smaller jet that took our dog Bo to Martha’s Vineyard so we and the children could have him with us while we were away from the White House for eleven days. Muslims can’t fly on the same plane with their dog.
P.SSS. Oh, I almost forgot to thank you all for our “date weekend” in New York and to say thanks also for our two-week trip to Hawaii at Christmas. That 7,000 square foot house was great!
And finally, thanks for asking, we had a great time taking Air Force One to Chicago to tape our segment with Oprah a couple weeks ago, replete with full security, a separate plane for armored limousines and a full contingent of assistants.
Remember we all have to share the pain of these economic times equally! Love to -redistribute- share- the wealth.
STAND UP, SPEAK UP. NEVER SURRENDER!!!!
