Honor the Memory of Catherine Violet Hubbard

Catherine Violet Hubbard is being buried today in Newtown.  You’ve probably seen her picture — the little girl with bright red hair and bangs.

For those wishing to honor her memory, her parents Jennifer and Matthew have requested donations to the local animal shelter because she loved animals so much.  You can donate at http://www.theanimalcenter.org/donate.htm or by mail to The Animal Center, P. O. Box 475, Newtown, CT 06470.

I am hoping to use this blog to help generate donations from all 50 states plus some other countries.

Bo Helps, Seamus Hurts

Forget Iran, Afghanistan, unemployment, and the deficit.  Now the presidential polls are about dogs.  Asked who would be a better president for dogs, 37% said President Obama and 21% said Mitt.

Apparently, Mitt’s making a 12-hour trip to Canada with his dog Seamus on the roof of his station wagon is taking a toll.  His favorables/unfavorables are upside down when voters are asked their opinion about Mitt’s treatment of dogs.  He has 20% favorable, but 29%, so a negative 9% spread.

By contrast, 44% have a favorable view of President Obama’s treatment of dogs,with 14% unfavorable, so a net positive of 30%.

What about the cats?

More on the Murdered Cat

I don’t want to post it here, but there is a picture of the dead orange-and-white cat with the word “LIBERAL” written in black on its fur at the site Think Progress in their Justice section.

The story with the photo is “Arkansas Democratic Campaign Manager Comes Home To Find Child’s Cat Murdered, ‘LIBERAL’ Written On Dead Body,” by Scott Keyes.

Now They’re Killing Pets

A shocking and very sad press release from Ken Aden, a Democrat and combat vet running for Congress from Arkansas’ third district:

“… Aden’s campaign manager returned home to find his family pet slaughtered with the word ‘liberal’ painted on the animal’s corpse.

“Jacob Burris … arrived home with his family Sunday evening, and his four children discovered the gruesome scene as they exited the family vehicle to enter their home.

The family pet, an adult, mixed-breed Siamese cat, had one side of its head bashed in to the point the cat’s eyeball was barely hanging from its socket.  The perpetrators scrawled ‘liberal’ across the cat’s body and left it on the doorstep on Burris’ home.”  Emphasis added.

I don’t normally use this blog to solicit donations for anyone or anything, but if you’re as sickened and outraged as I am, join me in making a contribution to Ken Aden’s campaign.
