As the dickheads running the world continue to throw their slime to and fro, and the corporate media celebrates their murderous actions with a smile and gleam in their eye, most wise philosophers find themselves perplexed with a choice of continuing to waste away in the sewer of the modern era, or opting out to believe that Jesus, aliens, or some benevolent creating type of guru that forgot about all of us, will come to their rescue.
Such miraculous ‘saves’ don’t seem to be in the cards:

Dickheads could give a flying shyte about you, me or the crippled and disabled man, woman or other on the street. Dickheads have their agenda, and most of the time it involves ending lives – whether they be at home or in some sovereign nation that poses no threat to any of us here in the U.S., but has vast reserves of oil that Washington and its corporate dickheads want control over.

So few could give a shyte about all this. Most are content with living out their lives subservient to the dickheads of the era…with nary a concern that not just the lives of their neglected brethren here at home, and those abroad in sovereign nations, are ended not even without a wisp of care – but even more troublesome that their own lives will be slowly and quietly extinguished by the offerings from these shysters.

It is, at times, difficult to continue to write about the dickheads of the era and their absolute drive to end life on earth, and if not that, then create a dystopian nightmare for all of us.
Which then leads me to ponder the following:
I can’t give proper attribution to the following as it was sent to me via email. But having been a keeper of “the dogs” for more than 20 years, deep in my bones I know it to be true.
Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker.
The dog’s owners, Ron, his wife, Lisa, and their little boy, Shane were all very attached to Belker and they were hoping for a miracle.
I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer.
I told the family there were no miracles left for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home.
As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for the four-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt Shane could learn something from the experience.
The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker’s family surrounded him.
Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on.
Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away.
The little boy seemed to accept Belker’s transition without any difficulty or confusion.
We sat together for a while after Belker’s death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives.
Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, “I know why.”
Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth next stunned me. I’d never heard a more comforting explanation.
He said, “Everybody is born so that they can learn how to live a good life — like loving everybody and being nice, right?” The four-year-old
continued, “Well, animals already know how to do that, so they don’t have to stay as long.”
“If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and man.” – Mark Twain
