Name : Lollie Email : d Message I do remember when they had to pass the laws where it was illegal to kill cats and dogs for consumption. What we called "Fido" or "Kitty" they called "Dinner." When they got off the boats and saw all the pets, the refugees probably thought they had truly arrived in the land of plenty. I suppose it was extremely difficult to leave what they knew life to be and adapt to a new culture. I do recall a couple difficult years. We lived in National City then and I remember when some of the refugees were learning to drive. They'd be bebopping down National Avenue at about 15 miles an hour with a car overloaded with family members.

Name : d Email : Message Holy Cow Paw, those houses had already been built, but not sold yet. When the refugees were placed out of the military bases, those houses then became designated for them.
I never said they were built for those people, They were assigned to them.
My point was when they needed to amend the law to protect animals to state killing them to be their dinner.

Well I remember that I used to babysit over on Green Bay St (IB/Nestor) and they told me how cats were vanishing and come to find out it was a part of The Vietnamese cuisine.
Then there was a law made to banish the consumption of cats. (spelling) I was told this because I had a cat for 20 years.

Name : lil paw Email : Message In a move seen as a big win for animal rights activists, the FBI has added animal cruelty to its list of Class A felonies, alongside homicide and arson.
The FBI Now Considers Animal Abuse a Class A Felony
Cases of animal cruelty fall into four categories — neglect; intentional abuse and torture; organized abuse, such as cock and dog fighting; and sexual abuse of animals — and the agency is now monitoring them as it does other serious crimes. Starting January 1, data is being entered into the National Incident-Based Reporting System or NIBRS, the public database the FBI uses to keep a record of national crimes.
The FBI's decision will not only be a way to stop cases of animal abuse but also can help to identify people who might commit violent acts, according to the Christian Science Monitor. Psychological studies show that nearly 70 percent of violent criminals began by abusing animals, and keeping statistics on such cases can help law enforcement track down high-risk demographics and areas.
"Regardless of whether people care about how animals are treated, people – like legislators and judges – care about humans, and they can't deny the data," Natasha Dolezal, director of the animal law program in the Center for Animal Law Studies at Lewis & Clark College, in Portland, Oregon, told the Associated Press.
Animal abuse is already a felony in 13 states and in Washington, DC., but it had been previously classified with other miscellaneous crimes, making it impossible to get a handle on the patterns of animal-abuse crimes.
The move to begin tracking cases of animal abuse is a "huge policy shift and significant step forward," Scott Heiser, a lawyer with the Animal Defense League, told the Washington Post.
The FBI announced the change in 2014 but only began collecting data as of this month. (2016) The information will be publicly available in the coming year, the FBI said.

Name : PAW Email : Message The FBI will not be investigating animal abuse and will NOT be making any arrests for animal cruelty. There is not a new or old federal law against animal cruelty.

The reason for the felony? The FBI has found if animals are abused, more than likely children and spouses are AND.....

Answer for the old...get your Flu shots and add the various shots against pneumonia and other immunizations you had as a kid.

If the limit was 65mph, they'd go from 65 to 45, to 55, to 60. Which made me have to continually hit the brakes, then speed up, only to have to slow down again. Sometimes I wished I had a Hellfire missile mounted on the front so I could blow them out of the way.

Whenever I get stuck with the grocery shopping, I invariably run into a woman who will just park her cart in the MIDDLE of an aisle with no thought that someone might be behind her. They seem to be oblivious to anyone around them. Sometimes I'll say "excuse me", and they'll apologize. Other times I'll be frustrated and just bump my cart into theirs. I think grocery carts need to be equipped with rearview mirrors, or maybe air horns. Now that would be fun!!

It's my everyday experience running a register and I just don't see young people licking their thumbs to count money, it's always old people.
Not more germs but more dangerous germs these days from over-use and over-prescribing of antibiotics by doctors which has caused germs to become antibiotic resistant and in turn become more virulent.

In this day and age of dangerous germs, bacteria, viruses, parasites, etc., why is it that old people still lick their thumbs when counting money or when tearing out a check from their checkbook. Yes I understand they don't have oils on their skin so they compensate by licking their thumbs but don't they realise they're placing their health at risk and the health of others by putting their saliva on money and checks. As someone that has run a cash register for years I can't believe what I see every day, especially during flu & cold season, these people touching public doors, railings, shopping carts, bathroom faucets, etc. and then ingesting this and spreading it as well. Unbelievable.
