I wanna’ be with you.

I won’t be right without you
And I might break without you
I’d rather be poor and happy than rich and alone
I’ll write hit songs about you
No matter how we’ll get through
I’ll keep on singing for a living, but I wanna be in love
And I wanna be with you

Pleasure in Violence

I’ll say it until I’m dead:  Neither pleasure nor convenience are acceptable reasons to pay someone else to be violent on your behalf [period].

Thank you, Ed, for pointing out a lame bogus excuse when you see one.

Not sure about my statement? Totally confused? Not sure why? Here’s why. It’s 12 short minutes of your life and if you eat eggs, dairy products, or meat (or things with those items in them, kids), then you owe it to the animals to spend 12 short minutes understanding only the basics of what you are paying others to do for you.

What does a lack of sadness or tears constitute?

Say there is an argument. Say one person is emotional – cries even – and the other person just stares back. Does that mean person one cares and the other person doesn’t? Continue reading

HOLY FRIGGIN’ SMOKES. I had no idea you were following me!

HOLY FRIGGIN’ SMOKES. I really didn’t.

I was just about to transfer one of the wildlife questions that I just received into a blog post – a “Dear Daniel” sorta’ idea. I get questions all the time about wildlife, companion animals, farmed animals, and human rights given the work I’ve done over the years and my current work, too. So, when I was about to paste in my draft response, I noticed the “Follow” button was an option even though I’m the owner and administrator of the blog. So, I thought that I ought to “follow” my blog. So I did. To my shock and amazement (seriously), the WordPress site has 3,299 “other amazing people” following my blog of only a few postings. Oops!

3,299 people follow this blog with only four blog posts ever placed. That’s pretty decent (!). Thanks for your support and I’m sorry I hadn’t been bloggin’ as I shoulda’ been!

If I had known, I promise I would not have been so lackadaisical about this site whatsoever. Continue reading
