Abused animal pic of the day

This dog was burned with acid. Mississippi Farm Bureau does not think this should be a first-offense felony.

If new to this website, just read this article from the Columbus Packet or this earlier post. Oh, and lets not forget this part since someone at Farm Bureau might think I'm trying to sell insurance on this website:
The use of Mississippi Farm Bureau's name and logo in this post is for criticism of MFB policies and additional commentary. Such a use is deemed fair use under the following statute:

"(d) The following shall not be actionable under this section:
1) Any fair use, including a nominative or descriptive fair use, or facilitation of such fair use, of a famous mark by another person other than as a designation of source for the person's own goods or services, including use in connection with:
(B) Identifying and parodying, criticizing, or commenting upon the famous mark owner or the goods or services of the famous mark owner;
(2) Noncommercial use of the mark; and
(3) All forms of news reporting and news commentary
Mississippi Code Section 75-25-25

If dogs could buy insurance maybe FB would change their position.

Here is a FB story that the Kansas City Star paper ran a while ago.

" Humane Society’s compassion stirs conflict with agribusiness in Midwest
The Kansas City Star"

The article begins:
"An escalating culture war in the United States pits our appetites against our compassion for animals — and the Midwest is a key battleground.

Agriculture interests see an enemy in The Humane Society of the United States. One of their main voices calls the animal-welfare organization a bunch of “humaniacs” who ultimately want to remove the eggs and bacon from your plate, the burger from your bun, and the dog from the foot of your bed.

Unfazed, the Humane Society dismisses what its director calls a “bilge pump” of lies and defamations. It is pushing ahead, state by state, for laws against cruelty, from “puppy mills” to intensive confinement of animals in factory farms."

MS-FACT is not associated with the Hyumane Society. Their affiliation is with the American Humane Society, a people welfare group that promotes the link between animal abuse and domestic violence, child abuse, sexual predators, and serial killers. And I do beleive that the campain to get this bill passed in Mississippi going forward will be about crime prevention and protection from sexual predators and FB attempts to kill this legislation put MS familes in harm's way. Thanx KF for keeping this out there.

Exactly. And certain opponents of the animal cruelty bill try to link MS-Fact to the Humane Society.

KF, thanks for not forgetting about these animals suffering and dying at the hands of monsters.

As stated before, the next victim of this heinous abuse could well be an infant or child, a senior or infirmed.

Shame on FB, shame on them all. In the end, goodness and compassion will prevail, and FB and those in that camp will have to live down what they've done.

Did not renew my insurance policy (s) with FB this year. Changed to someone else. Made specific mention to FB rep that their opposition of the animal cruelty act was the only reason I switched after 15 years.

Why does Farm Bureau have such influence over an animal cruelty bill? What is their interest in it at all? Clearly I've missed an important part of the story. Someone please give me the cliff-note version so I'll better understand. Thanks.

Kudos to you, 7:16!!! Thank you for taking a stand and hitting them where it matters most.

That's just one step closer to making a difference. Thank you, and the animals thank you too.

The first successful child abuse case in this nation and subsequent laws protecting children were based on existing animal cruelty laws.

We USED to understand that agriculture needed HEALTHY animals and that UNHEALTHY, MISTREATED animals posed all manner of risks .

That was SO true that animals were protected under law but CHILDREN WERE NOT. So the case argued that a child was an " animal" and therefore fell under those laws.

We actually USE to be a country that understood that money/profit isn't everything. You know , that integrity and honor came first. We didn't just " say" we were Christians, we thought we should LIVE like Christians.

These pictures make me sick. We have raised two cats, both strays and two dogs one adopted from CARA and one from my daughter who had to move into an apartment. The cats are inside pets and the dogs both have electric fence collars but spend most of their day inside.
I love a good steak, pork tenderloin or chicken dish. But pity the fool who ever threatens one of my pets, because I might turn the tables on them.

just getting started said...

I will second that on anyone who harms one of my pets. My pets are my family and these precious fur babies in this state have the right to be protected! Keep up the good work JJ!

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
