as i sat and listened to patriotic songs on the 4th of july, my heart bled very sad for America…my America… cried and cried… and

what I got is that Michael Vick and Nike are the perfect symbols/ representatives of everything that is wrong with the USA… greed, bottomline idolation, no conscience, violence, no remorse, macho hoopla, hollow, fake religious fervor… perhaps Nike’s soul-less corporate bots are the perfect vehicle for selling Vick’s fake redemption story?

yes, that foul smelling odor coming your way, clouding the very air you breathe that you are holding your nose against is the dog washing of Michael Vick.

we all know how much dogs hate taking baths. well, dog/animal lovers hate getting the same old questions, as if we are the ones who are guilty, yes I am guilty of the crime of pointing out the truth about Michael Vick and his crimes against nature…. so so so very tired tired tired of the sorry excuses, name calling, distractions and  other garbage.  I thought I had it all covered when I wrote Six Wrongs Don’t Make Vick right (I’d say 600 wrongs now)… but apparently there is still more to say on this subject.

Here’s how to deal with the fleas (block, delete, ban, arm yourself with the facts, be polite and show them we got class)…

there really is no defense for the indefensible… so when 200 million pet owners and millions of parents are armed with the facts, what else can Vick’s peeps say?

in the Orwellian world in which we live, where polluters of the most toxic substances routinely greenwash, try to sell consumers on how eco friendly it is to destroy your health, our planet…

Vick’s PR  handlers and Nike bring you the dogwashing of Michael Vick… the washing off the stench of the blood stains with a squeaky clean redemption story… where he talks about lying but still does not confess his lies, lying about lying… the real lies. the meaningful lies. oh yes, he does say that he lied about what he did, professed his innocence when he knew he was guilty. when all of the evidence against him pointed to what he did, he still said no, I’m not guilty. believe him, he is a self-professed liar.

the responses of Vick’s fans have often been puzzling, infuriating and/or tiresome to many animal lovers. Give them the facts and routinely you are called a racist, while they rant about white bitches, told he has paid his dues, made mistakes, we must not judge him/cast stones since we are not without sin, must give him a second chance and we must forgive…on and on and on it goes…  as if we are the ones who committed the crimes he did…instead of we are the ones pointing out the crimes he did that many still do not know about and some refuse to want to hear, denial ain’t just a river in Egypt…

here’s what sticks in our craws:

1. racists calling me a racist is ironic and absurd

yes, I actually voted for Obama, get over it, and defend him even though am not all together happy with all he’s done and not done. There are plenty of deserving black athletes who could / should have gotten the Sportsman of the Year award not Vick. I do not follow sports, esp. not football, all I know about is beach volleyball, go Kerry Walsh and Misty May Treanor !

But race is so NOT NOT NOT the issue. And no, I am not jealous of his success/blood money as it were, either. And I don’t target Vick because he’s famous. Just read my blog posts. Nor do I hate successful black people. I do however despise people getting away with murder just because they’re rich and famous. And tonight when they are miserable lying mothers (Casey Anthony) who many people believe killed her own sweet baby and got a not guilty verdict. Our justice system is so broken.  no, I do NOT condone child abusers, women beaters, or any other criminal or hold a double standard.

2. paid his dues, did his time

when people say ” he did his time!”

Michael Vick “did his time” for Federal Racketeering, he served his prison sentence for Federal Racketeering – ONLY.

The crimes, the heinous acts and crimes of Animal Cruelty – Michael Vick plead “Not Guilty”.

In a brokered Plea Agreement, the charges of Animal Cruelty were dismissed. Thus, unpunished were these crimes, by this man, against humanity.

The known, proven, admitted crimes of murder, rape, and torture of innocent defenseless beings was thrown out – dismissed – in the Plea Agreement.

The crimes in which, Michael Vick, systematically, prepared, planned, participated and executed, repeatedly, against these animals, was left unpunished in the legal justice system.

This is a known public record of fact.

3. he made mistakes… don’t you ever make mistakes? obviously you’re perfect and never make mistakes*

Define mistakes. Of course I make mistakes all the time, every day I make mistakes. However, it has never occurred to me to kill, torture and maim dogs for fun and pleasure and profit.  How many people do you know who have made these kinds of mistakes? And do you want them as neighbors? friends? role models for your children? And do you know that serial killers have long histories of killing animals before killing human beings? Just because Vick has not (yet that we know of) abused or harmed another human, does not mean he should just slide. Why give Vick preferential treatment just because he is rich, famous and can play football? Joe average would still be in jail for a 100 years for Vick’s heinous crimes.

What Vick calls “mistakes” were actually felonies which could have sent him to prison for much longer than the 18 months he spent incarcerated. The fact is, he spent years torturing and killing defenseless animals.

4. must not judge since we are not without sin

so we should just let cannibals do their thing, child abusers molest children, criminals steal our country and it is just fine to allow murderers get away with murder?

5. you don’t believe in second chances?

how many second chances did he give the dogs he murdered for not performing in the ring? NONE.

Love what this guy says:

http://bullmarketfrogs.com/blog/2009/10/hit-vick-feed-a-homeless-pet/

so so so very tired, tired of the ‘Does he deserve a second chance?’ kind of thing,” said Bill Smith, founder and CEO of the shelter, which is near Valley Forge. “Maybe it’s about time that the millions of pit bulls euthanized every year got their second chance.”

“… They’re great dogs,” he said, adding they’ve gotten a terrible stigma “because of people like Michael Vick.”

6.  what about all the good he is doing talking to kids?

He has done nothing other than PR for his image. Nothing more than what he was court ordered to do. And oh yeah, dog fighting has gone up due to him Why? Kids think it is cool to be like him. And hey, he got away with a light sentence, slap on the wrist (I know he thinks it was a rough sentence, pshaaaawww, waa waa waa… close the front door …

7.  Vick was just a victim of his background, neighborhood, culture, and cultural values.

Uh uh. According to Michael Vick’s father:

more indepth than the other article below, http://www.washingtonpost.com/​wp-dyn/content/article/2007/08​/23/AR2007082302385.html

Michael Vick’s estranged father, in an interview with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, says he urged his son years ago to quit dogfighting, and dismissed the idea that Vick’s friends were the main instigators of the dogfighting operation.

“I wish people would stop sugarcoating it,” Michael Boddie told the newspaper. “This is Mike’s thing. And he knows it.”

Boddie, 45, who has not talked directly to his son in the last 26½ months, said his son “likes (dogfighting) and he has the capital to have a set up like that.”

Boddie also said in 2001 his son staged dogfights in the garage of the family’s home in Newport News, Va., and kept fighting dogs in the family’s backyard, according to the newspaper.

Boddie told the newspaper he’s speaking out because he’s been hurt by what he says are inaccurate reports that Vick grew up without his father present. “I’ve been drug through the mud,” he said.

He also told the newspaper that federal investigators have not contacted him about dogfighting accusations against his son.

8.  we must forgive him, don’t you believe in forgiveness? (said with holier than thou attitude)…

 and he is redeemed (well, there you have it church, say amen, glory Hallelujah, praise Jesus)

these last two go together. of course, I believe in forgiveness and redemption. But without any admittance of the truth of sins/crimes, there is no remorse. without remorse, no conscience, how can there be anything resembling real redemption/forgiveness???  His PR/handlers are trying to sell this dogwashed story to the public and  gullible fans are eating it up like dogs eat poop. even the reviewers said that his failed 2010 reality show had too much talk of redemption and not enough talk about his crimes. So for people with brains in their heads, the whole/holey angle rings hollow especially since every time Vick opens up his mouth he refutes the redemption story. You can lead a sociopath to pretend he’s sincere but you cannot make him have remorse when he has no conscience. You cannot make him truly redeemable and forgivable.

He says has no regrets except he’s sorry he got caught and he wishes he had gotten a shorter jail sentence…

and he tells kids that he probably should have known better, just maybe he should have known better, inserts his foot into mouth once again, sheeesh… http://content.usatoday.com/communities/thehuddle/post/2011/07/eagles-michael-vick-speaks-at-youth-football-camp-in-baltimore/1

why parents should boycott Nike:

http://blogs.babble.com/strollerderby/2011/07/01/nike-signs-michael-vick-and-sends-absolute-worst-message-to-children/

Intentionally maiming and then killing dogs is not a mistake. It is a calculated and callous crime. Vick not only funded a dog fighting operation, he also engaged first hand in the cruelty for six years. He personally violated dogs using electrical wire and then threw them into a pool so they were electrocuted. He also executed approximately 8 dogs that did not perform well in ‘testing’ sessions” and killed using various methods, including hanging, drowning, and slamming at least one dog’s body to the ground.
Is executing animals for profit for six years in a row a mistake?

Now some fans are laughing at us, saying we don’t amount to a hill of beans, we don’t buy Nike products, blah blah blah… meanwhile, grandmothers and mothers and dads buy their kids Nikes… and 200 million pet owners, some have kids, too… never underestimate the power of Truth, Justice, it’s the American Way !

Dear Oprah

Updates: It seems God/Goddess heard our cries and O/Vick heard our comments, because Vick canceled the interview.

It seems Piers Morgan may be doing it, so if you want send him Lost Dogs books, and/or a link to the O comments… scroll down to bottom, pages and pages. yay !!! yipppeee!!!

this should cover all the icko sickos excuses, ok.

Since I do have a Dogtime account but cannot figure out how to login to it and have had no assistance from their support team, this is the comment I was going to make on Leslie Smith’s blog post. My own Dear Oprah letter.

Dear Oprah,

Since you were supposed to have BadRap on your show a little while ago with the dogs and flaked on that, I highly doubt and am very skeptical that you will ask Michael Vick anything but softball b.s. PR crapola.

I am personally sick, disgusted and fed up with hearing about Vick, from HSUS, Oprah and Obama. Am ill almost every day, crying all of the time.

If you are reading this and want to make a difference, please sign the petition on facebook and send it along to all of your friends and relatives.  Also, read others remarks to Oprah here.  You are NOT alone.

You can also write to Oprah’s Executive Producer Sheri Salata on Twitter, @SheriSalata and @Oprah and @OprahWinfreyNetwork and @PiersMorgan and @CNN and @Cnnbrk and @andersoncooper  with the hashtag #Vick

Look at my 4PawsUp page at all of the Victory dogs, and you tell me what kind of a person could torture and kill those dogs FOR SIX YEARS.  NO EXCUSES, Oprah.

I have a pit bull mix that I rescued from out of the hands of a homicidal maniac. Vick is a psychopath and should be in jail and / or a psych hospital.

If you saw the Richard Hunter video from Dallas, Vick showed NO REMORSE and his bodyguard said they don’t care about the dogs.  Video below and for context, this was not the Mayor, but the Mayor Pro Tem Caraway who had no authorization to give the keys to Vick and who has been laughed at and was supposed to get the keys back according to the real Mayor Leppert.

Vick has had THREE+ chances to meet the dog rescuers who’ve lovingly cared for the dogs and has refused.

What is it going to take for America to wake up???  Does Vick have to abuse, kill and maim children / people????  Law enforcement and ASPCA says there is a well documented correlation between people who do horrific things to dogs and then to people.

No one in their right mind could have done the things that Vick did, enjoyed doing, and got a thrill out of doing.

As Hunter said in the interview he did, Vick is MENTALLY ILL. And if he had ANY REMORSE he would give up the names of the dog fighters not just do what he has been mandated to do. There is MUCH he could do but what is he doing but playing football for MILLIONS OF DOLLARS???

It’s all a big show for greedy people.

No, I am DONE with you Oprah. I used to be a BIG FAN of yours, but I AM DONE.  I WILL NOT WATCH OPRAH ANYMORE until you have BEST FRIENDS, BADRAP, Jim Gorant, author of The Lost Dogs and a few of the dogs on your show.  If you do not do that, you are a BIG FAKE.

The audience should have a copy of The Lost Dogs at the very minimum and Oprah, you should read from the book to Vick.  If you let him off the hook, YOU ARE NOT WHO YOU SAY YOU ARE and DEFINITELY NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT LIVING YOUR BEST LIFE !!!!!

I hope I am wrong about you and am praying for a miracle.

CeliaSue Hecht & my beloved Cici

a former fan

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.

http://www.zoenature.org/2010/12/the-day-obama-struck-out/

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

Obama’s Praise For Vick’s Second Chance: Good Call? http://n.pr/guBQ1R

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.

sincerely,

your name

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…
