LOL I love this
Do you think a similar thing would work to get trump administration to actually have to face the truth of all the BS they have been shoveling???

What I love most about this isn't that they caught them (which is great and these dogs can now begin to heal) but they published the names AND pictures of these SOBs. May these busts continue so we come to a day very soon where dog fighting is no longer something done anywhere!

For all of those who protect us and those who never made it home....Happy Holidays and thank you.

Merry Christmas My Friend
By James M. Schmidt, a Marine Lance Corporal
stationed in Washington, D.C., in 1986

Twas the night before Christmas, he lived all alone,
In a one bedroom house made of plaster & stone.

I had come down the chimney, with presents to give
and to see just who in this home did live

As I looked all about, a strange sight I did see,
no tinsel, no presents, not even a tree.
No stocking by the fire, just boots filled with sand.
On the wall hung pictures of a far distant land.

With medals and badges, awards of all kind,
a sobering thought soon came to my mind.
For this house was different, unlike any I'd seen.
This was the home of a U.S. Marine.

I'd heard stories about them, I had to see more,
so I walked down the hall and pushed open the door.
And there he lay sleeping, silent, alone,
Curled up on the floor in his one-bedroom home.

He seemed so gentle, his face so serene,
Not how I pictured a U.S. Marine.
Was this the hero, of whom I'd just read?
Curled up in his poncho, a floor for his bed?

His head was clean-shaven, his weathered face tan.
I soon understood, this was more than a man.
For I realized the families that I saw that night,
owed their lives to these men, who were willing to fight.

Soon around the Nation, the children would play,
And grown-ups would celebrate on a bright Christmas day.
They all enjoyed freedom, each month and all year,
because of Marines like this one lying here.

I couldn't help wonder how many lay alone,
on a cold Christmas Eve, in a land far from home.
Just the very thought brought a tear to my eye.
I dropped to my knees and I started to cry.

He must have awoken, for I heard a rough voice,
"Santa, don't cry, this life is my choice
I fight for freedom, I don't ask for more.
My life is my God, my country, my Corps."

With that he rolled over, drifted off into sleep,
I couldn't control it, I continued to weep.

I watched him for hours, so silent and still.
I noticed he shivered from the cold night's chill.
So I took off my jacket, the one made of red,
and covered this Marine from his toes to his head.
Then I put on his T-shirt of scarlet and gold,
with an eagle, globe and anchor emblazoned so bold.
And although it barely fit me, I began to swell with pride,
and for one shining moment, I was Marine Corps deep inside.

I didn't want to leave him so quiet in the night,
this guardian of honor so willing to fight.
But half asleep he rolled over, and in a voice clean and pure,
said "Carry on, Santa, it's Christmas Day, all secure."
One look at my watch and I knew he was right,
Merry Christmas my friend, Semper Fi and goodnight.

OMG I cannot WAIT to see what Normand says in this press conference in 20 minutes. There was NEVER any reason Gasser was not immediately charged.

She is tiny and nervous and is estimated to be about 4 months old. It appears as though she is a pitbull mix. You can contact the following email address with serious inquiries only. Hugh -

... many are not even remotely pleased with the electoral college system nor the results of this election (and I can safely say that I'm in there with you). No one knows what this will mean and all we have to go on is the hateful spewings that this man did on the campaign trail which is truly terrifying... but least we forget that we have a Constitution that created a system of checks and balances and despite both sections of Congress also being Republican it is president elect Trump NOT king Trump and if you were even remotely upset by this election then it is your job to ensure we ALL hold him accountable during his presidential position.
