Snowmobiler Attacks Iditarod Racers and Kills Sled Dog

Crazy people all over the place out there. The Iditarod is a world famous dog-sledding race, and is an American Institution. It covers over 1,000 miles and the competitors face numerous hazards…I hope they catch this clown soon. Because these dog are trained as a cohesive team, this is the end of the race for the racer whose dogs were hit and killed.

The Killed dog, Nash

Snowmobiler Ambushes Iditarod Front-Runners, Runs Over Sled Dogs

The attacker killed Nash, a 3-year-old male dog.

A sled dog was killed and several people were injured after a snowmobiler repeatedly attacked the front-runners of the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race on Saturday morning, race officials said.

Mushers Aliy Zirkle and Jeff King were ambushed near the village of Nulato, Alaska, about halfway through 1,000-mile race, according to The Associated Press.

In separate attacks, the unidentified assailant first ran into the side of Zirkle’s sled and turned around to try again before fleeing, Alaska State Troopers told the AP. King, who was behind Zirkle, was later run down from behind. King said later that he wasn’t injured, but one of his sled dogs, 3-year-old Nash, was killed. Another two dogs sustained injuries.

King, a four-time Iditarod champion, told KTUU that he had to watch Nash die in his arms.

“I stood there as my dogs struggled in pain, with broken limbs and in the throes of death, for one of them,” King said.

He told Alaska Public Radio:

Last night, about 12 miles before I arrived to Nulato, one of the many snowmachines that were on the river struck my team at high speed. It did not hit my sled or me – and I am fine, I was not hurt in any way – but several of my dogs were hit. One was killed; one’s leg was broken, appears broken; and one is in serious condition with shock and impact.

I gave first aid to the dogs the best I could, loaded them in my sled and continued onto Nulato where I reported the incident. And at the point of impact, the snowmachine’s cowling had flown off, the driver did not stop, and he was a distant light in an instant. He went by at 80 or 90 miles per hour, hit me, never slowed down. His snowmachine cowling flew off and he was gone.”

Police have reportedly identified a suspect but haven’t released his or her name. It’s unclear what motivated the attacks.

Mike Huckabee – Poor People and Dogs

So….Poor people need to be treated like dogs…

How utterly…Republican.

Mike Huckabee: Poor Americans will be better off if we treat them like we ‘train dogs’

Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee argued on Thursday that the “common sense” way to improve the economy was to treat taxpayers with the same techniques used to “train dogs.”

Speaking at the Republican presidential debate on the Fox Business channel, Huckabee argued that Americans were having trouble getting ahead because “the tax system punishes them.”

“If you work really hard and you start moving up the economic ladder, you get bumped into a different tax bracket so the government thinks it deserves more of your hard work than you do,” he explained. “It’s time for something big.”

According to the former Arkansas governor, Americans would be better off with a national flat sales tax of 10 percent, which he refers to as the “Fair Tax” plan.

“It’s built on the common sense with which we raised our kids and train dogs,” he declared. “You reward behavior you want more of. And you punish behavior you want less of.”

“That’s how I raise kids, it’s how I trained our dogs. And folks, it’s not that difficult.”

However, the Tax Policy Center determined last year that Huckabee’s plan would actually punish the poorest Americans.

“The problem is that very high-income households spend only a fraction of their income, while low- and middle-income people spend all or most of what they make,” the Tax Policy Center observed. “A sales tax, by design, exempts a large share of income at the top. If it includes a prebate to protect people at the bottom and doesn’t add to the deficit, then it must raise taxes on people in the middle.”

Weird News – A Dog Named “Trigger”…And a Garbage Truck Heist

Probably bribed by the birds…Or tired of being told to “fetch”.

Dog Named ‘Trigger’ Shoots Owner

It was a setup…Honest!

Authorities say a northern Indiana woman is recovering after being shot in the foot by her dog.

And the dog’s name? Trigger.

Indiana Conservation Officer Jonathon Boyd says 25-year-old Allie Carter of Avilla laid her 12-gauge shotgun on the ground without the safety on during a waterfowl hunt Saturday at Tri-County Fish and Wildlife Area.

Boyd says Carter’s chocolate Labrador retriever, Trigger, stepped on top of the shotgun and depressed the trigger.

He says Carter was shot in the left foot at point-blank range, suffering injuries to her foot and toes. She was treated at two hospitals and released.

Tri-County Fish and Wildlife Area is about 140 miles north of Indianapolis.

HIjacking a Garbage Truck?

Garbage-truck heist on Capitol Hill leaves destruction, diesel spill

A small portion of the damage

A man stole a garbage truck Tuesday morning, then drove it around the neighborhood, hitting parked cars, Pronto bikes and eventually another garbage truck before being arrested.

A man driving a stolen garbage truck early Tuesday morning marauded through the Capitol Hill neighborhood, damaging cars, destroying a Pronto bike station and forcing the closure of several blocks of traffic.

Shortly before 6:40 a.m., the truck’s fuel tank was punctured during its rampage. Diesel fuel began leaking from the truck as it drove, covering several blocks until the driver hit another garbage truck. The stolen truck’s fuel tank ignited and flames could be seen spewing from its side. The fire was quickly extinguished.

Police arrested the suspect, and he was taken to the East Precinct.

Coincidentally, that’s where the heist had begun.

The Snow Heaux Calls BLM “Dogs”

What goes 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1? Sarah, The Snow Heaux, Palin after every speech.

Sarah Palin called Black Lives Matter protesters ‘dogs.’ Here’s why she doesn’t get the benefit of the doubt.

During a speech outside the U.S. Capitol to a tea party rally  Wednesday, Sarah Palin used a very loaded word to described the Black Lives Matter protesters. She called them “dogs” — actually, dogs that President Obama won’t call off. So, Palin told the crowd, she would instead offer her support and salute to the country’s police officers.

Palin is at least one of a few things: 1) obtusely unaware of the overwhelmingly black make-up of the police-protesting movement in the United States, 2) unaware of disproportionate and real way in which these issues affect black and Latino Americans, or 3) unaware of just how frequently racists have compared non-white Americans to various animals while justifying inhumane, immoral and illegal treatment. Or perhaps she has another one of her apparently believable, only mildly plausible explanations for why her comments aren’t in fact racist ready to go.

I have no doubt that we will hear that explanation from Palin and her many fans and defenders going forward. But there is a reason why Palin doesn’t get the benefit of the doubt, and that’s because Sarah Palin has a bit of a history.

There was that time in 2014 that Palin defended Mike Ditka’s defense of the Washington, D.C.-based NFL team’s name. Ditka said the only people who despised the team’s name were just “politically correct idiots.” Palin essentially agreed.

There was that time in December 2013 that Palin declared that the public’s reaction was the only real problem with “Duck Dynasty” reality TV star Phil Robertson’s claims that black people were happy, hard-working and Godly during the oftentimes brutally-enforced system of segregation and subjugation known as Jim Crow. Robertson claimed none of those positive attributes can be assigned to black people since “welfare” and “entitlement” programs have become a part of the American political landscape.

There was that time in November 2013 when  Palin said American “free stuff” (government programs) was being financed with money borrowed from theChinese that would one day come due and enslave Americans to “foreign masters.”

[Sarah Palin, American debt and Chinese foreign masters]

And there was that time in 2012 when Palin told her Facebook followers that President Obama, the nation’s first black president, should cease  his “shuck-and-jive shtick” around the Benghazi attack.

Never mind that “Redskins” in a known pejorative term for Native Americans and one that Native Americans have repeatedly asked the team to stop using. And pay no mind to the fact that Jim Crow was a brutal system of racial subjugation and segregation with a well-documented connection to the current socioeconomic standing of black America.

And we should, of course, all train our minds to turn toward some race-neutral explanation for Robertson’s utterly false implication that African Americans are the sole or even overwhelming recipients of cash welfare aid.(For those interested in the facts, See Table 1, page 6 in the annual federal cash assistance caseload report to Congress. ) And, of course, Palin was using the term “shucking and jiving” to refer to procrastination, just the way she later claimed. Any suggestion that Palin was making reference to a black person’s attempt to subvert his powerful white overlords with disarming, distracting and demeaning forms of entertainment — the usual meaning of the “shucking and jiving” phrase — is just plain wrong.

All of that is true if Palin and her biggest defenders are to be believed. All of that is totally plausible if this country’s long and inglorious history of racial tension and antagonism deployed as a political tool did not exist and Palin had been raised on Mars. All those who would take issue with Palin and her persistently racially-coded wordplay will, for those who want to believe her, always be the real racists and the source of America’s real racial problems.…More…

Well..The old horny white guys are deserting the Snow Heaux as well…

And…

Tucker Carlson Wants to Kill Michael Vick

While filling in for Sean Hannity last night, Carlson said that while he’s a Christian and “all for forgiveness,” Michael Vick killed dogs—and Carlson believes “he should have been executed for that.”

Now this is one of the guys who supported rendition and torture …of humans.

On CNN’s Crossfire (10/27/01), conservative Tucker Carlson was succinct: “Torture is bad. Keep in mind, some things are worse. And under certain circumstances, it may be the lesser of two evils. Because some evils are pretty evil.”

Once again, Carlson’s sense of justice is skewed by his racism.

And Your Dog’s Fat, Too!

Fresh on the report that the United States has made the list of the “10 Fattest Countries” – that is countries with the highest percentage of people that are obese…

Comes the report that all this pulchritudinous living is affecting fido and Fritz as well!

Animals Face Obesity Epidemic, Too

America is suffering from anobesity epidemic—and not just among the humans. A new study of more than 20,000 animals shows that even family pets, wild critters that live close to humans, and research animals are getting fatter, Scientific American reports. The biostatistician who published the study looked at weight changes in eight different species including primates and rodents in research centers, pet cats and dogs, and urban rats. They’re all packing on the pounds.

“Now, we don’t know why these increases occurred, but it invites some very interesting speculation,” he says. Unhealthy food and lack of exercise are blamed for the human problem, “but maybe there are other things that are important—because those things can’t be acting on the marmosets, or the rats and mice in the National Toxicology Program.” One theory is that it’s something in the water, literally: maybe toxins that are messing up the endocrine system of humans and animals alike. Future studies may explore the possibility.

The $3 Million Mutt

Heiress Duped Into Leaving Millions to Dogs, Son Claims

The son of the late heiress Gail Posner says his mother was duped into writing a will that gave away nearly $30 million to her staff and her pampered dogs while leaving him with only $1 million.

Posner, the daughter of the late real estate mogul Victor Posner, died of cancer at the age of 67 in March. She left $26 million to her bodyguards, maids and personal trainer, and a $3 million trust to ensure that her chihuahuas, including a Cartier-wearing canine named Conchita, can continue their decadent lifestyle. One bodyguard alone got $10 million. Millions more went to charity.
