Dogs Are An Excellent Source Of Protein, According To Our President

The Dog Days of Summer Are Here

Some of us are willing to give a tacit seal of approval to people who eat dogs, but if someone has the audacity to tie a dog cage with a dog inside to the top of their station wagon, before embarking on a family vacation, a serious breach of the holy covenant between man and dog has been breached. I assume most of you are aware that people in Indo-China, Indonesia, Korea, and our president have enjoyed the flesh of dogs with no misgivings; however, in all the world, no one agrees with securing the family dog to the roof of a car.

Many people consider this single infraction to be serious enough to refuse to vote for Romney. They are willing to overlook our ruinous debt, the total disregard by White House personnel to pay Third World Hookers their hard earned money, A refusal to draft a budget, An energy policy that causes the rest of the world to laugh at us, Fast and Furious insanity that has cost the lives of a federal agent and hundreds of Mexican nationals, the paying of hundreds of millions of dollars in phony Green Energy Scams to Obama bundlers, an Attorney General who refuses to answer questions and is primarily concerned with justice for “His People,” a GSA crew that spends money in gross indulgences, Leon Panetta’s personal indulgences of flying on the government’s magic carpets for his personal trips, and Michelle’s personal indulgence of vacation flying on her own Air Force One to arrive four hours early and avoid the crowded conditions on her husband’s plane, while the First Couple lectures the rest of us on energy consumption.

Just because our president admits to enjoying dogs for dinner in his best seller, “Dreams From My Father” is no reason to look down on him; it was Romney who tied the dog to the car and risked all types of misfortune and personal injury to the dog.

“With Lolo, I learned how to eat small green chill peppers raw with dinner (plenty of rice), and, away from the dinner table, I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted grasshopper (crunchy). Like many Indonesians, Lolo followed a brand of Islam that could make room for the remnants of more ancient animist and Hindu faiths. He explained that a man took on the powers of whatever he ate: One day soon, he promised, he would bring home a piece of tiger meat for us to share.”

(Many Americans are wondering if our president and Lolo had too many peacock dinners.)

If Romney would have eaten the dog before the trip or barbecued the dog for a road snack during the trip, the public would have found his actions to be far more palatable.

This is a serious election and we must keep our priorities in a logical perspective; otherwise, we will put too much emphasis in the failures of a flawed leader and dog eater, and fail to concentrate on a man who drove with a dog on the top of his car.

Epilogue: No dogs were eaten by me or Romney, while writing this article.

He is in an ongoing educational program, learning life's lessons from one of the world's greatest instructors, the horse. Skook has finished an historical novel that traces a mitochondrial line of DNA from 50,000 years ago to the present. The book Fifty-Thousand Years is awaiting me to finish a final proofread and it should be sent to the formatter in a matter of days. I am still working, so it is not easy to devote the time I need to finish the project. The cover is a beautiful wok of art. I would put it up here if I could figure out how to make it work.

    From news stories I have seen, Obama was age 6 or 7 when his dad gave him dog and other animal meats. That is what the people ate on a regular basis. Let’s not do like the democrats do and make this an issue. We can’t be blamed for what our parents had us do as kids.

  2. 3



    Hmmm, we don’t really know how Romney hauls his dog.

    If a man has a passion for dogs, he may be beyond reason, but a man who hauls a dog in a politically incorrect manner has hope for the future.

  3. 4



    Smorgasbord, this article was designed to illustrate the absurdity of basing election decisions on a man’s passions for dogs, whether it involves lashing a canine shipping crate to the roof of a car or having dog as the main course. Since the Progressive Marxists decided to make such a deal to of Romney’s dog hauling technique, an incident that was without an accident, we are left wondering if Obama and the rest of them even read the “Dreams” book with the reference to the dog eating habits of the Obama family.

    Oh I know, he supposedly wrote the flowery screed, and every man has a novel within himself, even if he can’t write a grocery list, but there is an element of doubt about this man. A man who must seal his past to run for president, but is willing to tell the intimate details of eating dogs and snakes.

    Personally, I found the book to be a colossal waste of time. When you compare Obama’s inability to construct a complete sentence, when he is off the teleprompter, it is much easier to believe Michele’s account in Stephenson’s book, that the book was written by Ayers, because BO couldn’t slap his ass with both hands when it came to completing a book. Thus the forensic evidence that has been present in American Thinker and other blogs to illustrate that BO was not the author of “Dreams,” along with Ayers’ own admission to writing the book is even more conclusive.

    What political crap. All of a sudden he is now eating dog food. Did you that is SS# is from a Conn. resident that died in Ha. Ever wonder where his mother worked. a social security office. By theory, opie does not exist?

    I absolutely love my specially trained rotties. Try putting them on a dinner plate or putting them in a cage for conveyance. They ride with their paws on the half ton roof. I never have to lock anything. lol.

    The whole issue is silly Skook! The left tries anything that will move focus off of the real issues. If Obama had any accomplishments to run on, these stories would not have made the news.

    Just a question: is there any white meat on a dog?

  7. 8


    Mooshell “eating dog is acceptable as long as it doesn’t come with a toy”. Keeping with the serious aspect of this information. Was obama 6 years old when he proudly wrote his book?

  8. 9


    the point is that the dems are the ones who made a huge deal out of excoriating romney for putting the dog in a crate on the car. Can’t have it both ways, now…..

    Liberal1 (objectivity)

    Wrong. It was not a “single infraction”. According to Ann Romney, they did it all the time—they could have put him inside the back of the stationwagon (like most people), or boarded him in a kennel. Maybe people on this site don’t care about how one treats ‘man’s best friend’—or maybe some people are even in agreement with Michael Vick’s actions—but I think it serves as a marker of his regard for people too. Especially after hosing off the defecation and the dog and the roof, and then continuing—brrrr, how cold.

    Liberal1.. ever drive with a dog in the back of a pick up?? same thing. what do you think, a HORSE trailer, is like? Same thing…. you liberals, will grasp at ANYTHING, to smear with, because YOUR guy, has NOTHING, to offer, OR run on. GEEZUS!

    @Skook: He needs to talk about everything but his record. One can only imagine the amount of garbage that is going to be coming out of his camp. Based on what has come out so far, it is going to be bad. I’m waiting for Romney’s kids and grandkids to be targeted.

    FYI- an article you will probably find interesting that deals with a conversation we had on another thread.

    When you compare Obama’s inability to construct a complete sentence, when he is off the teleprompter,….

    Several times I have said that when a liberal (any liberal) talks without a speech in front of them, they either babble on and say nothing, or they tell the truth (We have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it) (I think spreading the wealth is a good thing).

    All I am saying is that there are so many major items we can condemn Obama for, that we don’t need to pick the ones that don’t mean anything. Just a few minutes ago I read in World Net Daily that Obama is getting ready to write an executive order to cede the oceans to the UN.

    I never read Obama’s book. I feel sorry for you bloggers who have to dig through all of the liberal garbage to root out the truth, but I am glad you all do.

    The Irony!
    When it comes to OK’ing the Keystone Pipeline Obama is so worried about U.S. Sovereignty!
    Here’s his spokesman, Jay Carney:

    “It would be preemptively sacrificing American sovereignty” to approve the pipeline.

    Now think about what Obama said when he threatened the Supreme Court and listen to this:

    “The United States Congress — a very important body, takes American security and sovereignty very seriously, or should — is saying that we will, in advance — blind — approve a proposal for a pipeline, a proposal for which does not exist,” he also said.

    Quotes from the Beltway Confidential.

    When the House, that ”very important body,” voted about this Keystone Pipeline on April 18th they had 69 DEMOCRATS abandon Obama and join with Republicans giving that vote a 293 to 127 Veto-Proofing!

    Just a question: is there any white meat on a dog?

    The muscles that are used the least are white. The muscles that are used the most are dark. By this rule, I must be all white meat.

    The whole dog eating thing brings a new meaning to …

    “And over the past two years, that’s meant taking on some powerful interests. Some powerful interests that have been setting the agenda in Washington for a long time, and they’re not always happy with me. They talk about me like a dog. That’s not in my prepared remarks, but it’s true.”

    When the dems nit pick like this, it means they can’t find anything serious to complain about. If others want to wrestle in the mud with the dems and the propaganda media, they can. I crawled out of the mud a long time ago. I will admit that I like to jump in once-in-a-while, but only for a short time.

    Lets face it carrying your dog in a crate on the top of your car is stupid, cruel and thoughtless no mater who does it. The person shouldn’t be a dog owner.

    @Nan G: #15
    One of Obama’s obstacles to being crowned king is our Supreme Court. A king doesn’t have to worry about laws. They would just change things to how they want them. I can imagine some of Obama’s dreams of him doing just that. If Obama (or his ghost writer) wrote a book about them, the book could be called, “Dreams from Myself.”

  19. 22


    Randy, I’ve skinned a lot of coyotes and wolves and didn’t pay much attention to the meat, but to the best of my recollection it is all dark.

    The Lewis and Clark Expedition enjoyed trading with the locals for dogs as a main course, but I think this is currently a part of Third World Nation culture. Since our President was sired by a Third World Communist, mentored by Lolo of the Third World, taken in hand by Davis a committed Communist, and mothered by an anthropologist with a Communist philosophy who took her commitment to the Third World so seriously, she married two of them. Is it no wonder that our President empathizes with Third World people and seems to be putting forth his best effort to distribute America’s wealth among the countries of the Third World.

    For example, by crippling our oil exploration and preventing the construction of refineries, we are insuring the loss of billions in energy to other countries. Supposedly, we are avoiding the possibility of pollution, but those same wells and refineries are now being built in countries with no thought to safety or the environment. How thoughtful, we save the earth and appease the environmentalists by guaranteeing pollution in other parts of the world. However, to a Wealth Redistributionist or a Marxist, the idea makes perfect sense, you cripple America and drain its wealth away, under the guise of environmentalism.

    Just a question: is there any white meat on a dog?

    Silly issue or not I recall a female friend (D) back in January 2009 swooning over the campaign book written by Bill Ayers Barack Obama, Dreams from My Father: Having read Dreams from My Father: she gushed “how could you not fall in love with this man!” I guess eating dog might have something to do with it. One hopes that many Americans don’t end up eating canned dog food by the time Obama is finished with us. But how did Bill Ayers Barack Obama know dog meat was the key to a woman (D)’s heart?


    BTW:In case you are wondering, this particular female friend (D) [like no few other other female (D)s I become acquainted with] has as horrendous track recorded for picking men.

    Another Vet, an excellent commentary on our previous discussion, but I noticed that Jackson and Forrest were not mentioned as poor examples of Southern Generals.

    Dr John, I don’t have the cyber skills, but that is beyond the humor Pale, Oh my Goodness! Perhaps one of our gurus will paste that one up for us. It brings forth chuckles after working in the hundred degree weather and coming home with a headache.

    By the way, I’ve never mentioned this, but it is a fact: skinning a coyote or wolf brings forth an odor that would drive a bulldog out of a butcher shop. Both are kissing cousins to our best friend, the dog.

  23. 29


    I’m waiting for Barry to declare Soylent Green to be the national dish. I guess it’s going to be a toss up between our ‘Future’ Dear Leaders in the UN and our current Dear Leader. They both like to make more people poor, they work less, the meat is much tastier.

  24. 30


    When I hear the name “Scraps,” I think what a cute name for a dog. When Obama hears it, he probably thinks “Hey, a light snack.” For the love of God, someone keep this man away from animal shelters.

    @Skookum: That’s because they weren’t. Some of those experts underestimated the industrial and population advantage the North had. Grant and Sherman were a great team along with Sheridan and a few others, but one thing the Grant supporters fail to realize is that his winning strategy of attrition wouldn’t have worked without the North’s aforementioned advantages. Grant took more casualties than Lee, it’s just that he was able to replace them and Lee couldn’t. One of Grant’s nicknames in the Northern press was “The Butcher” and it wasn’t for the casualties he inflicted on the Confederates.

    As for the topic of the thread, being an avid dog lover, strapping a dog to the roof of a car is a no go. Eating one is even worse, unless of course it was a matter of survival and that would be a tough call for me. So perhaps the dog situation is equivalent to the election in that it will be a choice between the lesser of two evils.

    @another vet: #33
    You can’t say no one read it. The writers had to have read it as they wrote it, then proofread it. We don’t even know if it was finished before it was voted on, since nobody got a copy of it before they voted for it. Who knows what could have been added after the vote! Isn’t there a Federal law saying how long a bill has to wait after being introduced into congress before it can be voted on?

    What happened to Obama’s promise of a three day waiting period after a bill is introduced before it is voted on? Oh ya, I forgot. It was only a “promise,” so it doesn’t mean anything.

    Another vet, I thought the “experts” overestimated the support for the war in the North, there were conscription riots and bitterness in the editorials of the newspapers. There were many willing to let the South follow their own destiny, and with the attrition rate who could blame them.

    There was no practical reason to continue the war, except to “preserve” the union and pursue the passions of the abolitionists; otherwise, the markets would have still been there after the war, with two separate countries, and slavery would have become impractical and obsolete within a few decades because of the advancements of the Industrial Revolution. A process that could have led to the early industrialization of the South, a process that was delayed until the rusting and overbearing unions slowly began to erode the industries of the North many decades later.

    Slavery exploited the Black race, but in an economic sense, it also exploited the small farmer and wage earner. This was surely evident to the troops as they invaded PA and saw the prosperous farms of the North. Soil quality can only account for so much in the differences in wealth of the small acreage farms of the North and South.

    Within the context of the thread, I am a soft hearted dog lover. I have read several books of the polar expeditions in Antarctica, and I have always been amazed at the willingness of the men to eat their dogs in a process of attrition during the expeditions. They ate the lame, sick, and dying dogs as the dogs became weaker; thus they were guaranteed of eating meat that would have been condemned at an abattoir.

    Shackleton, was enough of an imbecile to try horses, without any experience in the science or culture of horse packing. A packer will tell you, without forage, packing horses is impractical. Each horse must consume thirty pounds of feed per day to keep a minimal amount of vitality, cold increases the nutritional requirements. Horses can only pack 140 pounds a day over rough trails. Shackleton, in his lunacy, overloaded the animals and expected them to walk on ice that was extremely rough, without the benefit of a blacksmith who could shoe them with sharp ice shoes.

    The horses were worked without a chance to survive in conditions that were impossible, and they became sick and died horrible deaths from starvation, cold, and overwork. The men would kill them and eat them once they were so diseased to be unfit for work and the men were soon afflicted with similar diseases.

    England celebrates these early arctic explorers as great heroes. I see them as cruel and inhumane adventurers who had no compassion for the animals they slaughtered to gain recognition and wealth.

    Yes, I was a trapper, hunter, and rancher who butchered hundreds of animals, but I have never eaten dog or horse; even though I have been invited to restaurants that specialized in horse meat in Europe. If I am faced with starvation, I will prefer to die of starvation with my dogs before eating them. To me, if you are willing to kill and eat your canine friend, you are only one step away from killing your human friend to keep from starving.

    This is a nation of dog lovers, a truly compassionate bunch, so compassionate they have elected a dog eater to the presidency.

    Ummm …

    Everyone knows you can’t blame a kid for what the family serves for dinner, but it is very funny that Romney is being vilified for crated-dog-on-car when Obama ATE a dog.

    Most of the reaction seems to be to be in fun and therefore not something that anyone takes seriously as a political issue. So, I suggest you enjoy the laughs and relax.

  29. 39


    So, it IS true- you are what you eat- now it becomes much clearer as to why he behaves as he does. As I understand it, the Souix Indians had a saying, ” Wolf’s heart, dog’s lungs”, to describe a liar- so much begins to become clear.

  30. 40


    As always, a great way to make a point, especially about the absurdity of talking about anything other than what needs to be talked about.

    Having said that, I refuse to blame or vilify the anointed one for eating dog when he lived in Indonesia or where ever it is he is really from! Whether one likes it or not, different cultures do different things and it is not my right to slam them any more than I say they shouldn’t slam our culture. As such, you are spot on.

    However, I do agree I wish he had eaten a cat instead, as they are indeed EVIL!

    Issues! Not what goes good with BBQ sauce! That’s what we need to address. One unfortunate thing though. The majority of the electorate isn’t going to bother with the issues I’m afraid as “responsible” voters should! All they can see or hear are sorry assed promises for handouts and aid in avoiding responsibility for their lives and of course anything possibly salacious or obscenely crass. Issues? forget it? I only wish and hope I’m wrong on that one, but listening to the talking heads as well as hearing opinions of many of the mind dead electorate here in Vegas, I’m afraid I’m right.

  32. 42



    Joe, that is an interesting anecdotal analogy. I think the root causes for the regional feelings may have something to do with the culture of Vegas. Since we are both well versed in the culture of gambling, I am confident you will see my point: what better insurance policy for the man who is willing to gamble it all on the long shot than to be guaranteed a home and all worldly needs will be provided by Uncle Obama. The addicted gamble likes to have a “bank” to fall back on, and in his short sighted reasoning, Socialism is the answer. Unfortunately, Socialist leaders don’t consider irresponsible choices to be suitable for everyday people. Elites like Obama and company are excused their indulgences, but the rest of the population must drive their tin cans and figure out how to cope with Obama Poverty.

    You do remember when Obama told the country, they can’t be expecting to vacation in Vegas, he wasn’t kidding, especially with his anti-austerity programs he has planned for the new America of the Third World.

    Under a second term of Obama, Vegas will cease to exist except for a very small resort for the Elites of the new Marxism.

    MAYBE he was lied to think it was a dog meal. because the hyaena look like dog a lot, and they are in more numbers than dogs over there which are eaten only in famine time

    I can say I loved my dogs so much, I could have ate them,
    but I squeeze them on me instead, and they survived,
    nice to have you here,

    @Smorgasbord: Me thinks the issue is not what obamination did as a pre-teen but his “Audacity of Stupidity” in gloating about it in his autobiography reveling in his innumerable non-accomplishments with ACORN and similar minimum paying jobs. The only thing that surprises me is that ghost writer Bill Ayers included this dog delicacy (dog-a-bob) in his much acclaimed work.

    @Smorgasbord: Please remember that FA’s mission is to provide reasonable discourse. And I must admit that this afternoon has been one of continuous reasonable humor; I haven’t laughed so much in months. So much better to laugh than to mentally dream up %$@(&%$! that may be picked up by internet sleuths/democrap mindbenders and used by the obamination WH basement crew to crucify me.

    All I am saying is let’s not go down to the liberal’s level and complain about things that don’t mean anything.

    If I were Romney, I would be telling people that this is how the liberals and the propaganda media work. They try to find even the littlest things to complain about. He could then tell of some of the things Obama has done that the propaganda media aren’t covering, like all of the golfing trips, vacations, parties, etc., that we are paying for that we don’t hear about from the propaganda media like we did when Bush was in office. Remember when each soldier who died was told about under Bush, but instantly stopped when Obama became president? More soldiers have been killed in Afghanistan under Obama than under Bush.

    The majority of the electorate isn’t going to bother with the issues I’m afraid as “responsible” voters should!

    From the way the republicans are running their campaigns for president, be ready for another round of, “Vote for me, because I’m not as bad as the other guy.” I don’t usually listen to campaign speeches for that reason.

    Whoever gets the republican nod to run for president, all they have to do is show their REAL birth certificate and ask Obama to show his. Remember when John Kerry kept asking George Bush to show his military records. Bush finally told him, “I’ll show mine if you’ll show yours.” You never heard a word about it after that.

    We eat a lot of cows in the USA. India still doesn’t eat any.

    We eat a lot of hogs in the USA. The Muslim world still doesn’t.

    African and Aborigine people eat live bugs. We pay exterminators to get rid of them.

    Each country has their different things they do that other countries condemn or just don’t like. I don’t worry about things like that when we have a president and his court that want to change the USA into a non-free country. I agree with what you said.
