THE BIG PROBLEM is THE BIG LIES…
You know I’d be tickled pink, thrilled and jumping for JOY happy if it were actually true, that Vick had changed, learned the errors of his ways and was truly remorseful and wanted to help kids and dogs, no one would be happier than me. Do you honestly think I enjoy droning on and on and on going on ad nauseum about his crimes until I am SICK to my stomach? NO, I do not !
We certainly would have a great proponent IF the whole story were true. No one can speak better than someone who has been there and done that. But the problem is that I’ve NOT seen one iota of authenticity, sincerity or truth come out of the mouth of the most notorious animal abuser of all time. The doggie serial killer has yet to CONFESS his sins before the world, most people do not know what he did, they think he “just” financed some dog fights and got caught and went to jail for dog fighting. These are BIG LIES. He did NOT ONLY finance dog fights but he killed dogs with his own hands and in horrific ways (read the court documents and/or The Lost Dogs book by senior editor of Sports Illustrated Jim Gorant) and he ENJOYED IT. Killing dogs in nauseating ways was FUN for him.
And he spent NOT one minute in jail for animal cruelty nor dog fighting but he got a plea deal and was charged with gambling. Similar to Casey Anthony being in jail for lying when most people believe she killed her daughter. So for him to run around publicly proclaiming that he’s changed and reformed while continuing these LIES of omission is symptomatic of his sociocpathy. He confesses to lying in the past while continuing to lie in the present.
He has no remorse, seemingly no conscience, and the only thing he would change in his past is he wishes that he did not get caught and/or that his sentence had been shorter. He has said this publicly. So the crux of the problem for humane people with hearts, eyes, brains and ears who love animals is he has NOT stopped lying and through his actions (which speak louder than words) we do NOT see him doing anything but pretending to be good not actually DOING GOOD.
Ok, it is nice for him to be on board this bill to penalize spectators at animal fights but it’s a whole lotta too little too late. How about outting the real criminals, the dog fighters he knows. I recommended a five step plan (below) for him to follow that would convince even the most skeptical among us that he truly had changed. C’est la vie.
Note: With all of the polls and articles to comment on about Vick yesterday, and we DID turn the polls around, thankfully, I started feeling sick. Having to write sickening details about what Vick did to people who do not want to know gets to me, especially when it’s an onslaught as it has been. Please know your limits. And I also have a suggestion. Besides taking frequent time outs, get away from the computer, walk your dog, hug your fur kids, etc. there is a technique to release your anger/outrage that who knows can even have beneficial results on the person targeted… I’ve used this with my ex-hubby and it works beautifully.
In your prayer/meditation place, bring in your guides, ask your God/Higher Power /Angels/Higher Self, whatever/whoever you believe in to be there and help you. When you are surrounded by love, white light, good vibes, whatever, imagine/picture/visualize the person you are angry at… And then imagine yelling at the person, hitting them, beating them up however you wish to do so, this is your fantasy. You can pretend to wipe that smirk off his face, kick him in the groin area, tear up his contracts, imagine sponsors fleeing and him being in jail, shunned from society, do whatever you want to do, say anything you want to say and imagine whatever you want, just keep on until you are done, complete, finished and your anger is released and they are who cares. You can do this with a group of people, and you can do this whenever you need/wish to do so. The point is that you release your rage in a nonviolent fashion. And get that energy OUT of YOU. You can also tear into magazines. Tear them up. Whatever works for you, but I enjoy beating the crap out of those who need getting the crap beat out of them, works for me. And that is all that matters. Better than taking out your rage on those you love. Try it and see if it works for you.
Now with all of these goings on in the media and in Congress, there is a big dog and phoney show (an elaborately staged performance, presentation, or event designed to sway or convince people. It is often used in reference to a series of informational events put on by a company or group or a derisive term for a small circus) aka
Pretending to be something you’re not or doing something that you want people to think is important when it really isn’t.
A dog and pony show is meant not to actually DO anything meaningful but to pretend something is being done which is the whole point of Vick’s PR Image Rehab Express. Is it no wonder then that he and Pacelle spoke yesterday to Congress… people can pat themselves on the back and say good job… Vick’s image brigade can go on reforming his IMAGE while his person remains as tarnished as ever. And Congress can pretend that they are doing something against dog-fighting. And Pacelle can pretend he cares about animals…Win win win.
Here is my problem with the legislation and the antique Vick road show…
Did they have the RESCUERS, ADOPTERS and people who take care of hurt, maimed, abused dogs or animals speak to Congress??? NO… people on the ground, in the field, who give their lives every day taking care of the animals hurt by dog fighting are the ones who are the REAL spokespeople… People from BadRap, Best Friends, Our Pack, and others, Knock Out Dog Fighting, folks who are SINCERELY making a difference…
OF COURSE NOT, duh, and children should NOT NOT NOT EVER be brought to barbaric animal fights. People that bring their children to dog fights should definitely be penalized and in my humble opinion sterilized. Have their kids taken away. But none of that is going to happen.
Kids learn by example. And if their parents engage in violence, then the kids learn by their parents actions not words. Even if their parents receive a fine, or go to jail, ok. But Vick’s words are still bogus. Dog fighting is on the rise because they think Vick is cool and want to be like him. Do they listen to his insincere words? NO ! they listen his actions… arrogance, hey, I got away with murder and am making millions and all I have to do is give a few lame speeches and pretend that I am sorry and you can, too… just don’t get caught…
this bill penalizes people who watch the fights instead of the top dogs, the dog fighters at the top, people like Vick with the real $$$ who put the dog fights on to begin with… it’s like putting addicts in jail instead of going after the drug cartel, the drug dealers, the real criminals. Or let’s penalize gamblers not casinos. What’s wrong with that picture? Millionaires protect other millionaires. They think we’re suckers. Of course, Vick is on board with THAT… then the people that he associated with (who we all know were responsible for killing dogs not him, never him, although HE was the one who killed dogs with his bare hands and did horrific things to the dogs, it was his background, culture he grew up in and his friends who were really to blame for what HE HIMSELF did) so then his friends would have been fined and gone to jail not him… hey, that sounds pretty nifty, a good deal, a sweet deal for him, duh… plus he gets to look like he’s actually doing something for animals and those who want to believe this kool aid do and the PR folk are happy and the NFL is happy and the REAL moneymakers are happy…
and so what if a few parents, kids and dogs get hurt in the process… Vick tried, hah. Vick likes the idea of a few spectators getting penalized so does Nike, the NFL, Subway and so on down the line… hold the wrong people accountable and the real criminals get off scot free, hey, who cares about a few parents, kids and dogs when you can make boatloads of money pretending you care about something you don’t give a shit about???
Please vote on whether you think Vick is a good anti dog fighting spokesperson
and someone start a petition going after the REAL dog fighters at the TOP and have Vick NAME NAMES… now THAT would be DOING SOMETHING TRULY BENEFICIAL… and have Vick and Pacelle bring that to law enforcement and Congress… HAH !!!
Now, we do have a real redemption plan for Vick to follow, check it out :
Warning: below interview is enough to make one barf,
Ryan Clinton, No Kill Advocate sent me this link and it really is beyond the pale. He couldn’t get through it. I couldn’t get through it.While Wayne Pacelle, the CEO of HSUS, and his spokesman Michael Vick, the most notorious dog abuser of our generation, claim they are pushing a bill to crack down on those who finance dog fights, the statements each makes reveal who and what they really are: Monster Vicks says his is “a different kind of loving dogs.”
(Note: if hate is love and love is sick twisted abuse)
And rather than condemn Vick for it, Pacelle says “obviously people who are involved in dog-fighting, cockfighting, they really do value the animals in certain ways.” And then he goes on to suggest that we are all “sinners.”
They are meant for each other: The two-faced charlatan who has enriched himself while he betrays the animals, time and time again, calling for their killing, fighting efforts to reform abusive pounds, defending the right of pounds to gas animals to death, and defending animal killers while turning his back on the animals those killers have abused; and the dog abuser who continues to avoid any responsibility by claiming shooting dogs, drowning dogs, hanging dogs alive, electrocuting dogs, beating dogs to death and watching them tear each other to shreds is his way of expressing a “different kind” of love.
Here’s the link if you can stomach it:
his greed pays priceless dividends, what happens when you lie all the time: (remember he failed his polygraph)
