now, Dear President Obama, I love you… read on, it’s great…
Does the Trojan corporation get a phone call from President Obama if it gives Tiger Woods “a second chance” with an exclusive multimillion-dollar condom endorsement deal? Would Trojan then be about the business of changing the perception of/leveling the playing field for philandering professional athletes? Imagine the campaign slogan…
“Unleash the Tiger in your pants! Got Wood?”
Michael Mountain, one of the founders of Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, speaks out about vick and President Obama.
Rehabilitation starts with acknowledging what you did. vick has never admitted doing anything personally that he did.
yes, now we’re cooking, huffpost has posted an article about best friend’s blog and polled people if they think obama owes them a call, 80% said yes, please chime in, thanks !!!
obama should call badrap too for that matter, they took care of a lot of the dogs, too, and I called the white house, it was great, send obama the lost dogs book, we are having impact for GOOD, http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/12/30/michael-vicks-dogs-call_n_802700.html
ok, finally Best Friends weighs in, been harassing them all with emails…other people probably have, too…. yay !!!
here we go again, barf and bark…
Please write to President Obama, NPR, the New Yorker
re: michael vick
sign this petition:
here is what I wrote:
Dear President Obama, please read the book lost dogs by jim gorant. should child molesters be able to adopt children?
85% in usa today poll say vick should never own a dog. he said he would still be dog fighting if he had not been caught. he never was charged with animal cruelty though he killed dogs with his bare hands for fun & profit.
i met 3 of the dogs. never let vick near bo. we can forgive but never forget. playing football is not a standard by which to let a dog killer near dogs ever again.
Here is the petition letter…
I would add that if Obama was trying to win Pennsylvania votes, that strategy was POOR JUDGEMENT, wrong for the country and that you will not vote for him unless/until he changes his stance. I hesitate on this because I know that his opponents are jumping on this (Fox News) to hit him over the head with… sometimes I think Obama self-sabotages. Still, there is NO ROOM for politics when dog’s lives are at stake !!!
Dear President Obama:
It has been reported that you felt compelled to call the owner of the Philadelphia Eagles football team, Jeffrey Lurie, to “thank” him for giving dog-fighter, Michael Vick, a second chance. It is baffling that you would step into the ring surrounding this controversial individual who has killed dogs in heinous ways with his own hands and barely served 2 years jail time for his actions. For some reason, you did make this choice, and as a Pit Bull advocate – a dog advocate – I cannot sit back and allow you to think you’ve done the right thing without hearing from my side.
There is no rehabilitation for this type of criminal. Particularly when the perpetrator himself has repeatedly said that he would still be fighting (killing) dogs if he hadn’t been caught. He has refused, time and again, to meet the rehabilitated survivors of his abuse – which would be a critical step in the right direction for him making amends with the dog community. Now he claims to want another dog in his home for his children – an arrogant statement only meant to fuel the fire he has created since his arrest. He deserves no such opportunity – ever.
It is particularly disconcerting to me that you have chosen to commend the criminal but have not once acknowledged the victims of his actions or, for that matter, the law enforcement officers and dog experts who handled the case. Until you meet some of these dogs, read the book The Lost Dogs by Jim Gorant, and commend the people involved in ending the Bad Newz Kennel operation, I don’t see how you can embarrass yourself by making this phone call. You should apologize immediately for this decision.
this is a blog hop, i put in code, did it ten times, hopefully it will get you to where you are supposed to go…
