Massachsuetts joins 10 other states in affording emergency aid to animals on a property without a warrant, now.  The case that was argued to their High Court involved 2 police officers witnessing 2 dead dogs in a backyard beside a 3rd barely alive dog, emaciated and likewise chained up with no food or water.  The cops acted to save the surviving dog.  Should your state be allowing police officers to rescue obviously distressed animals as well?

Hard cases make bad laws. You are basing law on extreme examples and not looking at the police state that the US has become. One more chink in the armor of losing more of your freedoms.

Who wouldn't agree with saving an animal(s) in distress? No one. When the cops start coming in under the guise that they saw a dog from the window that appeared to be hurt or heard a cat that sounded like it was in distress to gain entrance into your home sans warrant, you are screwed. You and your pets.

Let's also look at dumb ass neighbors wanting to get even with for not raking leaves or some other idiocy (you can insert you ex here or a coworker who hates you, whatever)... They tell the cops that they saw you beating your dog. Cop comes by. You aren't home but they hear your dog. Oh no! The dog needs help. I'm coming in. Do you really think this won't happen if hasn't already?

There are better ways to support and help animals in need. Giving some cop these kind of powers is a HUGE mistake.

As an INTJ, this attitude comes naturally to me.  I just wish other people made more sense.
Highly Confident People are often misunderstood, when it's really that they are thorough and focused on what matters.

The Editors at National Review weigh in on their take of how this Ukraine crisis should be played.  Would you agree?  If not, why not?  Should Putin's ambitions be curtailed here or in another of the former Soviet bloc nations?
The U.S. must defeat Putin’s revanchism.

 This the "N" part of my INTJ-ness playing The Long Game...

I see a grand pattern of super-power interference / meddling with other countries.
Putin of Russia interferring with Crimea / Ukraine;
History of the U.S. doing the same.

Those policies will end up hurting both powers in the end. For example, the U.S. is not well liked in the Middle East because of the perceived imperialist-like interference. The "Arab Spring" has resulted in a now a string of destablized countries in the area (Libya, Afghanistan, Iraq)

Bird flue is back!  Over 100,000 chickens have been slaughtered in Japan to try to stop the spread.  Supposedly this latest strain started in South Korea.
 
excerpt:
"Virologist Robert Webster, the world's leading expert on bird flu, said: "Nature has already shown us that there is a virus out there that kills most of the people it infects.

"We ignore it at our peril.

"What people don't appreciate is that H5N1 has already been the cause of a chicken apocalypse.

"Once it learns to go human to human there'll be no stopping the damn thing.""

William F. Buckley's younger brother Reid has passed as of Monday.  The notice is published by National Review's publisher, Jack Fowler.  Also a writer and debater, Reid was an advocate for moral courage as well as physical courage and this is an attribute that underlies true bravery.
