Your Kid Breaks Something That Doesn’t Belong To Him, Do You Pay For It?

So, as I’m standing with my back turned, a little kid comes up to me and knocks a coffee out of my hand. It falls to the floor and explodes. I turn around confused and mom says “oh….sorry… but she’s only 2″ – “that’s fine. but man. that was a $3 cup of coffee” – then dad comes in and starts screaming at me that ‘she said sorry’ and the kid’s only two and he should ‘punch me in the back of the head’ –

He says “she said sorry what do you want?”, I was kind of shocked, cause I was just standing there when this all happened, so i said “retribution!” – he says “what?!?! what? do you want me to give you $3″ I said, “yes”. He didn’t have any money. He then yells, well come with me I’ll buy you a coffee if you want to be an a-hole about it. I didn’t, At this point his wife starts dragging him away. And now he’s getting really tough as she’s pulling him away. I never got another coffee.

So, it’s your kid. What do you do?

All Dogs Go To Heaven (But Only If You Put It In Your Will)

So this lady wants thave her pet dog put down and cremeated when she (the owner) dies. IS she being selfish?

“In the eyes of the law, pets are possessions and when you die, you have the right to decide where they go but what if that means bringing those pets to the grave with you?

That is what one Aurora woman decided to do. Connie Lay’s attorney tells us she had a few possible plans laid out for her dog Bella at her death. One of them being the German Shepard be put down and her ashes put with hers. It’s a fate Bella is set to meet Tuesday morning despite objections from volunteers who want to give her a good home.”

This is the question I asked on the air. Help me understand what’s going on here. Several women called in and agreed that they are planning to do the same thing.

I did a poll of vets. Vets usually won’t put to death a healthy animal, but shelters will and Peta does. Remember a few years back all the pitbulls put to death at the local shelter. What’s the difference? In all these stories there were people willing to adopt the pets, why is it okay if you make the choice to do it versus the pet shelter?

People are quick to bring up abortion. I guess there’s something to be said about that. But with abortion, women say ‘it’s our bodies’ – you can’t make the same claim about your dog.

I sat and held my cat last night, he’s ill. He hurt his ear the other day. I can’t imagine that if I die, I’d wish the same fate on him. Someone would take care of him, family, friends… and if not. You know, he’ll survive. I had a woman calling me last night that said that she hand fed her dog chicken breast everyday, “he doesn’t even know he’s a dog” she claimed that he’d never survive w/o her. You know what though? He would. He’s a dog. Put him on the street. Deprive him of chicken breast. Once he gets hungry, he’ll remember what it’s like to be a dog. Heck, if you keel over, he might even taste you if he gets hungry enough.

The lack of value we put on all life in this country is disturbing. But, not nearly as disturbing as the extreme value we place on our own lives. If you’re so bold to think that you should have a say in the life or death of another creature AFTER you pass, I’d question why you value your own opinion that much.

There were wide spread stories of the pope saying that ‘All Dogs Go To Heaven’ or some such thing. You can fact check it here: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/dec/13/pope-francis-all-dogs-do-go-to-heaven/

But, I’d suggest it’s not the pope’s decision to make, and it certainly isn’t yours. People have suggested that maybe these women think that they can kill their pets so their pets will be with them in heaven as soon as possible. That’s sick and weird. Would you kill your husband so he can be there with you? This is what happens when society starts deciding that anything they believe is valid. It’s dangerous and always leads to death.

Please don’t kill your dog if you die. I’ll find a home for it.

Should Kids Have Smart Phones? (Graphic content found on tween’s cell)

Do you feel kids are exposed to too much these days? I got a message from a buddy on Facebook from a dad concerned that kids are exposed to too much.

This is a From a friend:

Just looked at my kids phone and read some random stuff from a group chat. ‪#‎wtf‬ are these kids talking about and should they even have smart phones? They are 12!! I say give them shitty flip phones till they turn 18. All of this tech bullshit can be fun and all but young kids can do without it. Never know who’s out there ‪#‎creepin‬ ‪#‎ugh‬

here’s the screen shot. warning, it’s censored but still graphic.

So, what do you think? Is this the norm? I spent the weekend with my extended family and got to hear how much knowledge my own nephews have about the world. These kids are dirty. Is it just a Sign ‘O The Times?

Where Did All The Delawareans Go?

New charts from imgur found on /r/delaware show us where people who are currently living in Delaware came from. Turns out, like many of you could have predicted… Pennsylvania.

If you weren’t born in Delaware.

Also, maybe even more interesting, where are all the Delawareans going? Turns out it’s “The South?” Or more specifically, like a friend in News insists, North Carolina.

What’s the appeal? Where would you go, if you could?

People who moved from Delaware.
