Alaska’s Iditarod race punishes mushers for sheltering dogs from storm

Iditarod rules say dogs cannot be taken inside shelters except for race veterinarians’ medical examination or treatment. However, cruel or inhumane treatment of dogs is also prohibited during the event.

I suggest that rule writers be kept outside.  The humans and dogs should be inside.  Then let’s see if the “rules” change.

Sorry but the dogs should be inside and the humans outside.

Argh!

INTERESTING: Never underestimate “Mother Nature”!

A new tundra, engineered by beavers
Once nonexistent in northwest Alaska, beavers are both benefiting from and changing a warming tundra.

Selawik, about 80 miles to the east, is a beaver hotspot, too, and some are upset that the animals are blocking hunting access by boat. “Elders said to start getting rid of the beavers, but nobody listened, and now it’s overpopulated,” said Ralph Ramoth Jr. (Inupiaq), a subsistence hunter who also works for the local airport and his town’s road, water and sewer department. Lodges up to 15 feet tall make navigating sloughs to hunt moose on the periphery challenging. “You can’t even go some places now with a boat, because it’s dammed up,” Ramoth said. Sometimes he tries to chip away at beavers’ handiwork, with little success. “If you tear up part of a dam or a beaver igloo, they’ll come right back and fix it up again,” he said. “They’re just busy beavers.”

Nature abhors a vacuum?  Of course, the critters are going to expand and fill up any suitable range. And, there’s not a lot us humans can do. 

Aren’t we sort of like those beavers and expanding our “range” across the globe and eventurally the known universe?

Don’t some “greenies” view humans as the scourge of Mother Earth?

I’d be willing to be if that class of human parasites called Gooferment didn’t keep us down and monopolize “space travel” by force, humans would all ready be living on all the planets of “our” solar system.  And be pushing the boundaries of space exploration to the far away stars.

Watch out aliens — if there are such — I think there’s a good chance there are — we coming for you.  It’s our “manifest destiny”.

“Be fruitful and multiply is NOT just a Bible verse.  It’s in our DNA.

Ad Astra.  

As well as a bunch of other mottos — ad astra per aspera, etc. etc.  And my personal favorite — ad astra per alas porci!

POLITICAL: Nullification is Constitutional and effective; as is Secession if we’re will to fight

Surprise, the Mainstream Media is Wrong Again: Yes, Nullification Does Work

*** begin quote ***

You don’t have to dig into a history book to prove nullification works. I can prove it does with one word.

Weed.

In 1996, California voters approved Proposition 215, the Compassionate Use Act, authorizing the possession, cultivation, and use of cannabis (marijuana) for limited medical use.

The federal government claims the power to strictly enforce a total prohibition of marijuana. It makes no exception for medical purposes. Despite federal law, states have advanced the issue each year. This has happened in spite of a 2005 Supreme Court opinion supporting federal prohibition, and a relentless year-to-year increase in spending and enforcement efforts by the federal government.

Today, despite ongoing attempts to enforce federal prohibition, 21 states and Washington D.C. have legalized marijuana for medical use, and 14 states and D.C. have decriminalized marijuana possession. Alaska, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Nevada, Oregon and Washington State have all legalized marijuana for recreational use. Each year, new state laws and regulations help expand the market, and each expansion further nullifies the unconstitutional federal ban in effect.

No matter what the mainstream tells you, nullification works. History proves this. The present proves this. And we will continue to prove it in the future.

*** end quote ***

Marijuana was outlawed to protect Hearst’s paper factories from competition. Fueled by that racist and untrue “Reeffer Madness”, “We, The Sheeple” were stampeded into another attempt at “Prohibition”.

Any prohibition doesn’t work. It merely raises the cost to the consumer and allows politicians and bureaucrats to exert more un-Constitutional control over “We, The Sheeple”.

Argh!

Government Alaska Lawmakers Ask Fed to Take Over Central Park to Point Out Hypocrisy
Posted on January 27, 2012 at 10:49pm by Tiffany Gabbay

*** begin quote ***

Perturbed with outsiders interfering with the right to drill in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Republican Congressman Kyle Johansen introduced a resolution in Juneau Monday that gives those on the east coast a taste of their own medicine.

Thus, in the interest of preserving one of the few remaining glimmers of urban greenery left, Alaska state legislators are asking the federal government to take over Central Park.

Yes. The Central Park in New York City.

You have to laugh when the shoe gets put on the other foot.
