Patricia Randolph’s Madravenspeak: Wolves’ reprieve short-lived if Ribble bill succeeds

Wisconsin Wildlife Ethic-Vote Our Wildlife

wolf jan 2015

“I am truly concerned by the fact the DNR is becoming a fostering institution for psychopaths. The DNR in the state of Wisconsin is a complete shame.” ~ Maria Horn, citizen communication to Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources

As wolf biologists breathe a sigh of relief with the recent federal court-ordered merciful end to destruction of wolves in the Great Lakes region, congressional Reps. Reid Ribble, R-Wis., Cynthia Lummis, R-Wyo., Collin Peterson, D-Minn., and Dan Benishek, R-Mich. are preparing legislation to permanently remove protections for wolves in Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota and Wyoming. Wolves were delisted three years ago in another legislative maneuver in defiance of Endangered Species Act requirements.

This is wolves’ last stand.

To protect wolves, please contact your federal representative and senator now (202-224-3121) to urge them NOT to support legislation or riders that:

• Permanently delist gray wolves in the Great Lakes region (NO to the Ribble…

BLM selling wild horses & burros like used cars

Straight from the Horse's Heart

A mare/foal pair in the sale program because they were offered 3 times on the Internet adoption

by Grandma Gregg
Remember when we saw how the BLM was posting lots and lots of wild burros online in order to get them 3-strikes fast so they could sell them to Guatemala?   Recently, and now, the BLM is running our wild horses (and burros!) through the same way – like used cars – and are advertising them for sale on the internet.  (A few links and pics attached, but there are many more online – see the links – and a “new” internet adoption is starting in a few days.)
The BLM is doing this because they can’t use Tom Davis to dispose of horses anymore – so they’re now advertising them to get rid of them as fast as they can, and as I know from personal experience ……

Freedom from Chains as a Lesson from Martin Luther King Jr.

Of Dogs and Chains and the Intersection of the Two

I saw “Selma” on Friday, the story of Martin Luther King Jr.’s (and so many others) march on Selma, Alabama which was a turning point in the fight for racial equality in America.

As I sat in the dark theater watching whites beat blacks to death and employ German Shepherds as attack dogs to cause them even more fear and pain, I sobbed for the cruelty that humanity is capable of. I asked myself (as I seem to do so much lately), “Why? Why? Why? I just don’t understand.”

I don’t understand why humans are so cruel to others and to animals. I don’t understand why those in power (of any color) torture and abuse those without power. I don’t understand why they can’t see that a living, breathing being is suffering and why they think it’s in any way ok to keep them down and abused.

In the days…

Life or Lunch?


Growing up, I was always taught in school not to discriminate against people based on their gender, ethnicity, class, or sexual orientation. We’re pretty much all raised with those values, right? Well, as I got older and entered adulthood, I started to realize that the same should apply to animals—who suffer greatly.

Today, countless animals face a fate similar to that of humans who were forced into slavery and subjected to other injustices: They’re tortured, abused, and neglected—just as humans once were, and, unfortunately, sometimes still are. Can you believe that over 63 billion animals in the U.S. are slaughtered every year for the food industry? They’re often confined to small stalls or cages and deprived of everything that’s natural and important to them until the day they’re sent to slaughter. How is this fair? In addition to being used for food, animals also suffer at the hands of humans for fashion, experimentation, and entertainment.

Islam, Education and Duke: The Bells! The Bells!

Stately McDaniel Manor

The Duke Chapel credit: The Duke Chapel

Last week, Duke University, in the spirit of inclusiveness and diversity, proudly announced that it would henceforth regularly sound the Muslim call to prayer from the bell tower of its chapel. Duke has been, in recent years, the site of considerable controversy and administrative cowardice. Among those displays was the Duke Lacrosse debacle in which a corrupt prosecutor, abetted by much of the Duke Faculty, the University President and the national and local news media tried to railroad several entirely innocent Lacrosse players for a rape that never occurred. This religious flash in the pan is, however, far more dangerous than anything the feckless Duke Administration has done to date. The Jerusalem Post has the story:

Another Boko Haram Attack Repelled By Armed Women

a12iggymom's Blog



Several Nigerian media outlets have been reporting on local women in the villages of Attagara and Kawuri in Borno State who recently disarmed nearly a dozen Boko Haram terrorists. The notorious pseudo-Islamic terror groups tried to attack the Attagara and Kawuri communities over the weekend but the insurgents were instantly repelled by a group of armed women.
The Attagara and Kawuri villages in Gwoza and Bama Local Government Areas of Borno State resisted the attack using an array of local talismans and, of course, their assault weapons came in handy as well.

Almost immediately, the community rallied round to apprehend the insurgents. At least three of the terrorists managed to flee, but community members say that seven were arrested and executed.
Local residents said that the initial attack happened when the terrorists that the villagers described as Boko Haram came into town on motorcycles. Stories are…

So are you idiots still funding this racist bitch? Oprah: Racists Have to Die for Racism to End

a12iggymom's Blog

Oprah Winfrey, one of the wealthiest people in the world, is throwing the race card again.

During an interview with the BBC Friday, she not only said that President Obama is treated with disrespect because he’s black, but also that entire generations of racists are going to have to die for racism to end (video follows with transcript and commentary):

WILL GOMPERTZ, BBC: The issue of the civil rights movement, and the way that black people around the world are treated, particularly I suppose in, around the world…
OPRAH WINFREY: Around the world.
GOMPERTZ: Around the world. Look at place like Russia, it’s, you know…
WINFREY: Around the world.
GOMPERTZ: So is this, is this, I suppose from a movie point of view, what the movie and the messages hold and the other movies we were discussing, and “Scottsboro Boys,” are these historical comments or are we still looking…

CHOKE POINT: Obama Admin Shuts Down Indian Tribe’s Bank Accounts

Please Take URGENT Action: Bulls Being Chased, Beaten With Bats, and Stabbed!

Rantings From a Virtual Soapbox

“Compassion for animals is intimately connected with goodness of character and it may be confidently asserted that he who is cruel to animals cannot be a good man.”
Arthur Schopenhauer, German Philosopher

I have said this before and will no doubt say it again but what the hell is wrong with people who deliberately harm animals , people who participate in cruelty for pleasure or entertainment?

Please read the following information from PETA and take the suggested action.

“Liquor forced down bulls’ throats, animals made to run while being chased, lassoed, beaten with bats, and stabbed

NO animal should ever endure such horrific cruelty, yet on February 1, this is exactly what will reportedly happen to the bulls used in the annual Fiesta de la Virgen de la Candelaria in Tlacotalpan, a city in the Mexican state of Veracruz.

And the torture doesn’t end there: After the terrified bulls…

Al Qaida or ISIL could be smuggling uranium


secret-agent-SmAlgeria concerned Al Qaida or ISIL could be smuggling uranium   CAIRO— Algeria plans to establish a network to monitor the flow of nuclear material along its borders.

Officials said the government has approved a plan to install equipment to inspect incoming goods for radiation. They said the equipment would be installed at border posts amid concern that Al Qaida or Islamic State of Iraq and Levant could be smuggling nuclear or radioactive material through Algeria to such states as Mali and Libya.

They will be deployed at port and airport platforms for the monitoring of all product and equipment, which may introduce polluted materials and possibly may represent a radioactive source,” Algerian customs chief Mohammed Abdul Bouderbala said.

In a briefing on Dec. 22, Bouderbala said border posts would include customs units that specialize in detecting nuclear or radioactive material. He said the units would consist of…
