Another video on pet food illness

…Allegedly caused by the pet food.  Ahem.  Just because pet after pet after pet gets terribly sickened after eating the same products does not mean the pet food caused it.  So there. /snark

Dog Treats linked to pet deaths


This got to me because Pookie is a schnauzer, too.  I’d be heartbroken if she died from kidney failure from creeps making poisonous dog food.

The FDA is worthless. Period.  Might as well call them the Department of Big Pharma.

Has anybody else noticed how sick our pets and other animals are?

Since the 90s, I’ve had an epileptic dog, a cat that had a serious lung disorder or cancer (vet didn’t know which); and a cat with diabetes that required insulin.

Is it the GMO’s?  Toxins? Plain old poison in the food?  I mean, we have some sick whackos in Big Pharma that insist their products are safe and effective when people are made chronically ill, such as Lupron/Synarel.  Why would the chemists working for dog food companies blink an eye at toxic pet food?

They use animals for testing products that maims or kills them…so why would they value someone’s pet?

From the comments below the video:

I almost lost my Collie due to the Wagon Train jerky treats. He was throwing up foamy looking stuff and had a seizure. Fortunately, I did some research and saw everyone’s reviews about this treat and made the connection. He hasn’t had anymore jerky and he’s been fine since.–Arielle Sioux


I wish I’d known this before§ My dog died exactly from this stuff 7 years ago, I’m sure of it. Furthermore, after my dog died, I passed the left over uneaten food to my neighbor before I went away for the summer. My neighbor’s dog died before I return home. Both Dogs were older but in healthy condition before they ate this food. My distributer must have known about it because when I returned, the stuff was no longer on the shelves.–Bombast Biniou


And a warning to the humans, as well:

Please be careful about buying ground beef for humans imported from countries known for foot and mouth disease. Our government is allowing it under the new trade laws. This type of warning should be put on our ground beef packages as well!–Mark Rivenbark


Another video has helpful advice:

Dog Food Synthasite here.

This was on their “Dirty Tricks” page:

Dirty tricks: Conveniently placed loop holes in dog food:

  1. Split labels/part labels: This trick makes you think the first ingredient is meat. (always buy labeled meat, bone meal, meal, etc.) It splits an ingredient  so it’s not the more then the meat. Example: chicken meal, corn meal, corn gluten…  But when you add corn meal with corn gluten the total of corn is more then the chicken. It should really look like this: corn meal, corn gluten, chicken meal. A food based on grain or vegetables is very unhealthy for dogs or cats! Dogs and cats need a diet well more then 50% meat based. (labeled meat!)
  2. Not full ingredient: this allows companies to skimp a little on good ingredients without putting it on the label. For example: it may say barley, but only be a certain amount of barely, while the rest of it consists of something less healthy or overly used like soy. So if your dog has an allergy and your looking for a food without allergy causing food you may be deceived and get something that has the allergy causing food in it even thought the label says it doesn’t. Not all companies use this trick but beware of it and ask the company if the allergy causing ingredient is in the food even if you don’t see it on the label.
  3. Price: (this technically isn’t a trick but many people make the wrong decision because of this.)



How the frog slowly boils…

…you remember the story of how a frog will slowly be boiled to death because when it is first put in a pan, the water is room temperature, and then the heat is turned up and up..until…

Well, that’s how I view this.

First of all, what in the world is a pharmaceutical company giving grants got to do with religion??

Secondly, this so-called philanthropy is just another name for bribery….

…only it doesn’t *look* like bribery because it’s to give respite to ministers.

But that is exactly how the Dark Side works — it shows up in sheep’s clothing with a wolf underneath.

That is how Bill Gates gets his foot in the door — so that people will look the other way when faced with his unethical, immoral, soulless, underhanded dealings.

Same with the Clinton Foundation.

Pretty much all of the so-called philanthropy foundations.  It isn’t philanthropy if you expect something in return.  Which all of them do.

There’s no such thing as a free lunch.

Bob Paulson, RCMP boss, wants warrantless access to online subscriber info

This part of the report leaps out at me:
—Police say telecommunications companies and other service providers — such as banks and rental companies — now demand court approval for nearly all types of requests from authorities for basic identifying information.

The Supreme Court judgment came amid mounting public concern about authorities quietly gaining access to customer data with little oversight or independent scrutiny.—-

First — isn’t it AMAZING that Canada protects its citizens’ privacy and they have not had their 9/11??

I mean, really, Americans’ bank accounts, library accounts, internet, email, and homes no longer have ANY privacy whatsoever…

This report probably means they have already encroached on the Canadians’ privacy…and now they’re just trying to make it into law. Pretty much how they did in the United States.

And the American public has absolutely no freaking idea just how far they have gone and that they consider nothing sacred. NOTHING. Americans would be alarmed and outraged at how much of our privacy rights we have lost.

Blaming the victim


This is just too, too much.  And all too common.

I mean, really, this line of questioning is just soooo over the top: (from the link to the Daily Tar Heel)

“The woman student said to me, ‘Landen, as a woman, I know that if that had happened to me, I would’ve broken up with him the first time it happened. Will you explain to me why you didn’t?’” she said.


WTH?  She *must* be lying because she stayed with him after the first time it happened.  And using her depression and suicide attempt–manifestations of the abuse–is totally disgusting.  And to top it all off, they give confidential details to her parents!  And they’re claiming that these folks received training….?  Seriously?  Well, now, methinks that training was…well…worthless…probably based on Freudian concepts of women and sex .  /snark
