The mindless Dentist and God's majestic beast

I just watched the Cycle on MSNBC where the prevailing theme was about the poor dentist whose life is ruined because people are over-reacting not because he killed a lion who had a family, but only because it was a pretty lion.

I think it is not OK to hunt for sport simply because you have permits.  Some places issue permits to get fees. Some do it to control the killing. It is not OK or macho, to hunt with a bow and arrow leaving the animal distressed and in pain.  It is not OK calling it "taking" the animal as it is should be called killing or murdering.  It is not OK to display the heads of creatures you slaughter on your wall. Frankly, I consider this guy as vile as it gets.

Should this Dentist's life be ruined?  I believe in the penalty fitting the crime.  His ignorance is no excuse.  He is guilty of hiring criminals who lured the lion out from the sanctuary. He is guilty of killing and letting his prey suffer.  He is guilty of morale turpitude. He is guilty of not knowing better because he is an educated man.  In my opinion, what really irks me is that this A-hole is totally unapologetic.  I suggest his penalty should be confiscation and destruction of his entire animal head collection,  a $250,000 fine donated to animal preservation, confiscation of all his weapons and permits to use for 20 years.

Trump and McCain

Donald Trump said that Senator John McCain is or was no hero.  If one were to use a very narrow definition of the word, hero,  Donnie could be correct.  The narrow definition would be bravery perhaps a scoch more than the expected, in this case, in the military..

I suggest that if the narrow definition is used, it should be stated that the definition limits are both explained and are  the only parameters.  I guess being captured doesn't constitute bravery.  However Donnie does not explain any parameters and the preponderance of  scope of what a hero is, as stated in Merriam Webster, should be applied.

I am not a John McCain fan, but would call him a hero.  For his service, he is almost universally admired, he has shown great courage in his prisoner ordeal. and while I may disagree with most of his politics, he is a man of many fine attributes.

So Donnie, grab yourself a dictionary, have someone read to you the definition of Hero, and apologize to the Senator.

Texas Refuses Birth Certificates to Aliens Born There

Let's say Leticia is knocked-up and 7 months pregnant.  She's thinking that she could have the baby here in Mexico, pay the cost and, later when she comes in with the help of a Coyote, both she and her baby have to hope that Cryin' John is not the Speaker and someone named Nancy is.

So, she says to her significant other; Yo, Carlos am gonna motor over to Texas, have the baby free in the emergency room, get a U.S. birth  certificate for the kid so he's a citizen of Estados Unidas. Carlos asks; Yo Chicka, you can do that?  Like, yeah, you can, Honito, everyone is doing it.  Carlos;  Honita, you so smart!

Having had a right wing Governor, the Texas electorate, in their infinite wisdom, decide to effect change and elect someone much further right, presumably to make it clear that they will not be outdone by an Alabama or a Lousiana, and notwithstanding this flying in the face of the laws of the land, they figure on an odds on chance hoping Anthony Kennedy owes some payback to the Italian Narcissist, the black guy who sees, speaks and hears no good, the sheer Brilliance of Alito and the Chief Justice with the pasted on smile.
