People need to realize the significance of this post, because when I reblogged it it was just blank so I think some people may not understand what this is trying to say
Adopting an animal (or buying from someone close to you who has recently had puppies, kittens, etc) is not like simply going to the store and buying a toy. You do not just get to throw it away once you are done with it and it stops being cute in your eyes
This is a real living thing that has emotions, needs, and wants, not something to be thrown away when YOU are done after YOU entered at commitment to raise and care for this animal.
What’s just as bad as dumping the animal off just anywhere you want, whether it be on the side of the road or in a shelter, is that a lot of these animals end up dying after that. Animals are NOT always adopted and strays are not always picked up. Animals can get put down, run over, tortured, and a list of other things
People should really think about what they are responsible for before they bring an animal into their life
Not to mention that that animal loves you, you are his world, and when you drop him off at the shelter - or worse, in the street - you are abandoning him. He doesn’t know what he did wrong, he thinks you’ll come back, maybe you just dropped him off for a bit and you’ll come back to him. Not only did you make a commitment, but that animal loves you and throwing them away isn’t just breaking that commitment, it’s throwing away someone who doesn’t understand why you don’t love him anymore and where you went.
This is so important. Animals are NOT toys you just can’t return them because you got bored. Think first before you buy a cute little puppy for your stupid girlfriend or sister or whatever. Okay. This just make me so mad that I can’t keep talking about it. Seriously you have no heart if you do this. Seriously
This shit pisses me off
How could you be so hateful to that poor puppy who loves you
watch both their faces go from “courteous TV smile” to “not paid enough for this bullshit”
Alrighty here, I am sick of these kinds of posts, so I am going to set the record straight on this one.
This is Bill O’Reilly. I’m sure y’all know that already, and I’m sure you know he is a pretty big name over at Fox News. Now, I went and hunted down the video clip these gifs came from. It’s here if you’d like to watch it. This segment was in response to a claim made by Republican Michelle Bachmann that the US is not ready for a woman to be president. I don’t know why Bachmann said this, and frankly I don’t care because I don’t put a lot of stock into things she says. O’Reilly was simply parroting this claim, intending for Kirsten Powers and Kate Obenshain to refute it. He was being facetious, which he often does on his program and you get pretty used to it after you watch him for a while. Perhaps this was not the best way to react to Bachmann’s claims, but that’s another story all together.
In the ten seconds following the end of the second gif, Obenshain bursts out laughing, and Powers asks O’Reilly what the downside to a male president would be. Any guesses what he says to that? Anyone? He asks her if she’s got three years to listen to him list all the problems with male presidents. O’Reilly does not think that men are more capable or qualified than women to be president. He then actually asks the women if they know any potential problems with electing a woman, because he can’t think of one. Obenshain cannot think of any but Powers, the Democrat, pipes up that she can. They then discuss the point that Powers brings up that some other countries may not take a woman as seriously as they should when dealing with the US. This is a perfectly valid concern, I think, but I personally don’t see that kind of problem lasting very long with any capable individual.
Stop taking things out of context. Without the audio or more of the transcript, it is impossible to discern what really happened. O’Reilly is actually extremely fair in this discussion, and I have never seen him treat any woman on his show with any less respect than he would afford a man in the same position.
