Human Mutations

Sunday, August 16th, 2009

I had a horrific picture of dog-fighting here.  I can’t stand looking at it any longer.  I hope it helped make my point.

Frank Garcia, 35, a registered nurse in Western New York, recently went on a day-long murder spree that included killing four adults and in one couple’s case, insisting their teenage children listen to those torture murders, made them beg for their own lives, and then demanded they thank him when he let the kids live.

Garcia was convicted of two of the murders and undoubtedly will be guilty of the other two. He will be locked away forever because he’s a human mutant – someone who is so beyond our realm of reality, we can never let him near people again.

Michael Vick is a star, professional football player who signed a deal to play for  $135-million dollars.  But he also had other activities.  For over six years he ran a    dog-fighting club (mockingly called ‘Bad News Kennels’) and delighted in hanging, electrocuting, and bludgeoning to death dogs who could not or would not fight hard enough. He also satisfied his blood lust by tossing to his ferocious pit bulls for play, household pets and old dogs who were unwanted.

After serving only a year and a half in prison, Vick found the lord, now speaks to kid groups about animal cruelty, and just signed a million-dollar plus contract with the Philadelphia Eagles.  Although he is getting a second chance, I suggest to you that Michael Vick is also a human mutant who should never be around people again.

There will be some people who say I’m treating the murder of animals on a par with the murder of human beings.  That’s not true.  I’m not looking at either of these cases through the eyes of the victims – I’m trying to imagine the world through the eyes of these murderers.

And I simply can’t.  Neither, I’ll bet can you.  What kind of monster would take pleasure in the bloody torture, suffering, and killing of helpless creatures?  A mutant.  A diseased bad seed. A rabid animal.

Do you think Vick deserves the second chance he’s getting?  Well maybe we should give one to Frank Garcia too.  Let’s start by putting them around your family or pets.

FUCK THE KENTUCKY DERBY!

Friday, May 1st, 2009

I wrote this last year after a racehorse was euthanized moments after the race.  Is there anything better than the Kentucky Derby to symbolize the decadence of a segment of American tradition?  Ah yes, the “Derby”. Our own Magnolia, elitist, Southern bouillabaisse of flowering hats, flowing gowns, and florescent mint juleps.  Oh, Mammy! You can almost hear the darkies in the field singin’ ‘Old Man River’.

OBSCENE? Do you know what’s really obscene? Horses that are raced to death beyond any civilized standards for sport, show, and money. Innocent civilians and soldiers killed in senseless wars like the one in Iraq. And 40,000+ people (mostly children) worldwide who die EVERY SINGLE DAY from starvation and disease. These are ALL disgusting facts – but do you know what’s REALLY obscene?

 

The fact that a goddamn word offends you more than these atrocities.
