  1. Here is my California, when people disapprove of coyotes (the 4-leg kind), wokesters reply, “They were here first.” So the same applies to libraries? Who knew? I don’t go to libraries anymore, but if I do, my tactical pen won’t do much good.

    When RooshV--the former PUA turned hardcore religious Orthodox Christian--did a cross-country speaking tour a few years ago about his conversion, he made a point in every town he spoke in to stop in to the local library. He said you could tell a lot about a place by the state of their local library. He wasn't wrong.

    Here's his first Vlog from that journey. You can find the rest on Bitchute.

    Boy are you spot on here.

    The explosion of these people--mostly women, but some "men"--dragging their "emotional support animals onto planes has been ridiculous. I saw this and just thought "what the hell happened to America". Our maturity level suddenly collapsed and the joint is chock of pathetic emo head cases. Or more on point, we're tolerating the antics of pathetic emotional head cases.

    The airlines have clamped down on the service animals big time. That was at least one year ago, maybe two, Pat. I don't think it was really because the reasons to have a Service Tortuga or a Service Gecko are ridiculous, but they don't like being scammed out of 200 bucks. (To clarify, the airlines, not the tortugas.)

    It started ramping up once the fees for taking an animal in the cabin, at least one that couldn't be hidden in a coat pocket, went up from $50 to $200 or so.

    Five years back or so we were on a late - delayed - flight from SFO to HOU. A woman at the bulkhead had a large dog at her feet. Not a typical helper dog, I think a Doberman. About an hour into the flight I hear growling and snarling and excitement that wakes me up. Soon after the pilot gets on the PA to announce a diversion to “take care of something”. The flight tracker shows us heading into PHX at 1:00 AM. The terminal is dark. There is no other activity. At the gate 3 big dudes get on board and surround the woman and dog. She pleads, Ok, ok I’ll get off. Door closes, we back away and take off. Circle back past the airport and I watch the the taxiway and runway lights get turned off. The airport is completely dark. The woman and her dog are stranded in the middle of the night in an unintended destination. Good for her.

  5. Steve, I think that LA finally cleaned out the main library downtown, because after the fire and restoration the city was promoting it as a tourist attraction. Do you know if that is true or is it still a homeless clubhouse? I remember reading that the place was pretty bad even pre-Covid early in the growing homeless crisis. It would make sense that after the Covid forced them to shut the facility it would be a good opportunity to not let the problem fester again.

If you want to see a picture of the suspect who cold cocked the 80 year old Asian man, the Daily mail is your stop.

    Yes, the Daily Mail is dreadful, but it actually puts in news that the other media want to avoid. The tabloids are not always so reliably squeamish.

    A good example was the following - a mass murder of old ladies perpetrated by a high melanin individual. Maybe Unz readers know about it. The media was really suppressing this big time presumably because - with the "jogger" trial on - the tale of the Noble Black would be put in jeopardy at a bad time. In November I tried on Google with things like "New York Times" or "Guardian" and the accused`s name. No hits!

A drug addled homeless person destroyed the back end of her car (\$2K to fix) just to see if there was anything worse stealing in her car (there wasn’t). The car also had to be detailed because the robber or some other loser decided that it would be fun to take a leak in the now open car.

    True. To be fair though, the guy standing up and trying to punch a short dog in the head wasn't much more effective. Why the guy standing didn't try for kicks to the ribs, and the guy on the ground didn't try strangling the dog is a mystery. Of the two, I have more sympathy for the guy who was down as just flailing is an understandable reaction. I'd like to think I'd have done better.

    Back when pterodactyls used to fly around I was a vet tech. What I remember about bad dogs was you had to put them in a really tight choke-hold them to keep them from whipping around and biting. Dogs are amazingly fast and wriggly.

    I haven't had a dog in years, but I think the old exam rooms with the owner present no longer happen. The dog goes in back and gets all trussed up before he has a chance to prove whether, in fact, he is a bad dog.

    It depends on how an animal is trained and treated.

    Your landlord is a fool. Our leases were drawn up to exclude bogus emotional support dogs like yours. A smart landlord won’t accept a bogus note from your brother in law the Dr that says Reg is such a basket case he can’t exist without his sidle pee pee poopsiew

    A smart landlord focuses on the dog itself. A trained from 3 months old licensed certified therapy dog that allegedly can help the basket case owner.

    Those dogs cost $15,000 to $20,000 apiece.

    Every once in a while some liberal snivels and whines about his special emotional psychosis that can only be alleviated by his Liddell pee pee poopsie.

    The agency emails or hands the nerd the legal according to ADA and case law specifications about the DOG, not the owner. And suggestions about where to buy the mutt for $15,000 . And the actual laws about the nerd wimp sniveling whiner who is emotionally dependent on a mutt. After checking the psychiatric diagnosis and the cost of the trained licensed certified mutt the applicant disappears.

    All legal and there’s not a thing the sniveling whiner dependent on his pet can do about it.

    Also, dog owners don’t make good tenants. First they tend to be self righteous liberals. Second liberals are incapable of training their dogs beyond the minimum of house breaking. The latest trend among liberals is not housebreaking their dogs at all. The breeders, vets, pounds that sell the rescue dogs now favor litter boxes for dogs.

    Not just those pee pads for liddle pee pee poopsie’s accidents But big plastic boxes to put the pee pads in and trash cans for the soiled pee pads.

    Follow the money. 15 years of pee pads. And here I thought you were a man Reg.

    Despite having lived in San Francisco half my life I’ve only been in the downtown public library once. Long long ago. Sometime in the early 1970s. I picked up a magazine and was reading it. I felt something wet on my knee. A black man, respectably dresses in a suit and tie was down under the table and licked my leg.

    Never again to that library. Or one of the millions of reasons blacks are bad.

Since this was a library, maybe the guard could have found a hot pot of coffee and threw it on the pitbull.

Homeless druggies have taken over public spaces, using libraries as a base for using drugs and fouling the lavatories. Multiple national and international groups have cancelled conventions in SF.

    Mom has arms ripped apart, dies stopping pit bull from attacking 4-year-old son

    …A Wisconsin mother had her arms ripped apart by a pit bull while saving her 4-year-old son from the dog and later died, kin say.

    Heather Pingel, 35, was savagely attacked at her home in Bowler, northwest of Milwaukee, on Dec. 8.

    The boy’s father “got home to find her lying on the bathroom floor. She said, ‘I have no arms, and I’m dying,’ ” said Pingel’s sister, Shannon Pingel, to the Wausau Daily Herald.

    Heather’s son was found sitting on a chair in the dining room with blood pouring from his leg…

    “I have no arms and I’m dying.” That phrase should only be uttered by careless lion keepers at a zoo. Not in a family home from a family pet.

    When I encounter someone with a pit bull I brace myself because my chances of being horribly maimed or killed are greatly increased. It’s like spotting a bear while out on a hike. Unfortunately I’m more inclined to encounter pit bulls being walked by middle/upper-middle class white women who obviously rescued them from their former diverse and vibrant areas.

  48. I love dogs and have no objections to them in general. But I really can’t stand these people – disproportionately young women (and women who think they are young, but aren’t) – who talk about and build their lives around their dogs as if they were actual children. They ain’t.

    And it’s absolutely absurd these people who walk around stores and get on airplanes with their “emotional support animals.” My advise is to stay far, far away from such people. Don’t befriend them, don’t hire them, and sure as hell don’t date them.

    Downtown libraries are basically just very expensive dumping grounds for the homeless population. I’ve been inside the San Francisco main library and it had a ton of homeless people. That was way back in my 20s. I can only imagine how bad it’s gotten now. The most that security can do is kick out anyone who is sleeping or engaging anything particularly obscene (I can only imagine what homeless people may be doing at the computer terminals).

    I once was in the lovely, Moshe Safdie-designed Salt Lake library – which is pretty much a cheaper ripoff of his design for the Vancouver, BC library – and witnessed a nice little fight between two homeless people, one of whom yelled at the Asian homeless man and called him a “refugee.” I could tell you the race of the homeless man shouting the epithets, but you can probably guess.

  49. The irony is that the library spokesman said they ‘allow in service dogs; dogs that are performing a specific task for the owner.’

    The dog did perform that task. He protected his owner.

    Somehow, I don’t believe fighting off aggressive pit bulls is part of library guard training. I know someone who’s active in the ban pit bull movement. There’s many videos about how pit bulls can fight. And many more by pit bull owners bragging about their pit bulls.

    When library guards are maimed by pit bulls the city’s workmen’s compensation rates go way way up. And the guard has to get a lawyer and attend endless hearings to get his medical treatment authorized

    On the other hand, I know 2 beautiful gray, pure gray, and white not all splotched and mottled pit bulls. Real rare dog twins brother and sister. They weren’t fixed in time and she had 5 puppies. They’re 8 now and totally well behaved.

    Like people, it’s not the training, it’s the genes. Pit bulls are very favored by gays both men and women. The lesbians manage to partially train them. The gay men not at all.

    Your landlord is a fool. Our leases were drawn up to exclude bogus emotional support dogs like yours. A smart landlord won’t accept a bogus note from your brother in law the Dr that says Reg is such a basket case he can’t exist without his sidle pee pee poopsiew

    A smart landlord focuses on the dog itself. A trained from 3 months old licensed certified therapy dog that allegedly can help the basket case owner.

    Those dogs cost \$15,000 to \$20,000 apiece.

    Every once in a while some liberal snivels and whines about his special emotional psychosis that can only be alleviated by his Liddell pee pee poopsie.

    The agency emails or hands the nerd the legal according to ADA and case law specifications about the DOG, not the owner. And suggestions about where to buy the mutt for \$15,000 . And the actual laws about the nerd wimp sniveling whiner who is emotionally dependent on a mutt. After checking the psychiatric diagnosis and the cost of the trained licensed certified mutt the applicant disappears.

    All legal and there’s not a thing the sniveling whiner dependent on his pet can do about it.

    Also, dog owners don’t make good tenants. First they tend to be self righteous liberals. Second liberals are incapable of training their dogs beyond the minimum of house breaking. The latest trend among liberals is not housebreaking their dogs at all. The breeders, vets, pounds that sell the rescue dogs now favor litter boxes for dogs.

    Not just those pee pads for liddle pee pee poopsie’s accidents But big plastic boxes to put the pee pads in and trash cans for the soiled pee pads.

    Follow the money. 15 years of pee pads. And here I thought you were a man Reg.

    Despite having lived in San Francisco half my life I’ve only been in the downtown public library once. Long long ago. Sometime in the early 1970s. I picked up a magazine and was reading it.

    That’s actually not true under California law. Just because you forbid it in your lease means nothing except nobody has bothered to sue you yet.

    Emotional support dogs and cats require no such training, and you’re legally obliged to accept them along with the tenant supplying a letter signed by a licensed medical professional confirming their need.

    I rent numerous properties, and I’d love for it not to be true. Especially emotional support CATS. Cat urine can cause damage far beyond their pet deposit, and they know that. But I’m legally required to deal with them, according to every legal professional I’ve begged to find a loophole. It’s a major pisser.

    The main advantage dogs have is that people instinctively don't want to hurt them. You can see it in that video. The guards are trying to get the dog to "stop" but not actually hurt/maim/kill it. If that huge black guard had started kicking that pitbull repeatedly with really hard kicks in its ribs or underbelly or stomping on its legs to break them, I think it would have lost. There are also wooden chairs right next to them. That huge black guard swinging a wooden chair with all his might would have done some damage.

    Somehow, I don’t believe fighting off aggressive pit bulls is part of library guard training. I know someone who’s active in the ban pit bull movement. There’s many videos about how pit bulls can fight. And many more by pit bull owners bragging about their pit bulls.

    When library guards are maimed by pit bulls the city’s workmen’s compensation rates go way way up. And the guard has to get a lawyer and attend endless hearings to get his medical treatment authorized

    On the other hand, I know 2 beautiful gray, pure gray, and white not all splotched and mottled pit bulls. Real rare dog twins brother and sister. They weren’t fixed in time and she had 5 puppies. They’re 8 now and totally well behaved.

    Like people, it’s not the training, it’s the genes. Pit bulls are very favored by gays both men and women. The lesbians manage to partially train them. The gay men not at all.

    In Belgium, it's common to take your (well-behaved) dog with you to a nice restaurant.

    My guess is that that works in Belgium because people have some idea of proper behavior for themselves and their dogs: I've trained my dog not to be a nuisance to other people, so therefore I can take him to the restaurant when the family walks to their local favorite restaurant because he won't bother the other diners.

    Remember the two lawyers in San Francisco who were affiliated with the Aryan Brotherhood were criminally prosecuted when their two Presa Canario dogs killed one of their neighbors. One was convicted of murder and the other one was convicted of manslaughter.

    It was a big deal when I was living in the bay area 20 years ago while attending Cal.

    But those dogs were Presa Canarios, not unike the American Staffordshire Terrier, also known as a pitbull.

    I don't know why dogs attacking people is a thing in San Francisco; but I know DA Chesa Boudin is not going to prosecute the presumably homeless cretin who brought the pitbull into the library. (Anyone who uses the internet at the public library is going to be homeless cretin).

    I parked and a man parked right next to me. I looked over and in the passenger seat was a little bulldog in a baby car seat. Some kind of special dog car 💺 seat. Small, perfect for that size dog. It was elegant and expensive looking. Forest green canvas. The dog wasn’t sitting in a natural dog sitting position. There was a system of straps that held him her in a human position. Butt in the seat; dog’s back upright against the back of the car seat. Like a human.

    Then in CVS a woman with a pink doll stroller. In the stroller a small dog wearing a pink dress and hair bow with a pink blankie

    If you get snowed in the next blizzard check out otterman pet otter owners and Darly the Pomeranian with more than 100 outfits and plastic surgery. Or bringing my new puppy baby home. And shopping for more stuff than middle class human babies get. New baby meets his human brother and sister. Or dog dad And pee pad toileting vs house breaking.

    That’s actually not true under California law. Just because you forbid it in your lease means nothing except nobody has bothered to sue you yet.

    Emotional support dogs and cats require no such training, and you’re legally obliged to accept them along with the tenant supplying a letter signed by a licensed medical professional confirming their need.

    I rent numerous properties, and I’d love for it not to be true. Especially emotional support CATS. Cat urine can cause damage far beyond their pet deposit, and they know that.

    Yes you can. We’ve been doing it for 30 years. Cats and litter boxes, totally gross. Fleas hibernating in carpets.

Asians White immigrants like Persians Russians single blacks with good jobs tend to not need a stupid animal around to fulfill them. Just American Whites especially gays. We have a totally tough attorney. We’ve been sued about this and that. Our motto is thousands for legal fees. Not one cent for settlement.

    There’s also the three complainants from other tenants and you’re out. Not really but makes them wary.

    Our application says licensed certified service dogs for the handicapped only. Along with the humans information there’s a line for the dogs medical certification number. And where it was trained , training facility and the trainers phone number. Plus something about a requirement that service dogs be insured for $10,000 damages.

    That scares them away. Because their darling liddle pee pee doesn’t have a certification

    Maybe talk to a personal injury attorney who does dog bites? An attorney who represents landlords only? Not just evictions but the whole business of rental property? Or talk to a big company like Trinity or Voss in San Francisco? As I remember, ours is just standard template. With the added proof of dog bite insurance.

    There was one German guy who thought Bateman was a really nice guy -- he fell for all the ironic talk about "cool it with the anti-Semitic remarks", the ACLU, etc. -- which maybe was a cultural gap, but boy he got real upset when the dog got it. I guess he thought that was the big reveal.

The landlord will win that one but it will cost money for legal fees If a tenants dog bites the tenants guest or another tenant or worker neighbor mail carrier or passerby the landlord can be sued and might be held liable. Attorney fees are high. And if it’s a worker needs medical treatment for a dog bite the landlords Wcom insurance rates go up. Plus, what right does your untrained mutt have to bite someone?

    Dogs have fleas. When the dog moves out the fleas hibernate. When a new tenant moved in the fleas wake up and bite the new tenants.

    Dogs poop and pee in buildings and yards. Dogs smell Dogs get ticks and fleas. Dogs charge lunge grown and snarl at people and workers and delivery people. While big bad macho man owner blames the person the untrained mutt menaces . And the owner of the building is liable. Not the a$$hole owner.

    Home Depot and some other companies like cable companies contractors won’t allow workers to enter a building until the dog is leashed. That way the worker isn’t either menaced or annoyed by some disgusting mutt. While the owner whines “ he’s just trying to be friendly “ You try humping a 44 inch wide refrigerator through a 40 inch wide door with some big stupid dog jumping all over you. While the owner who can’t control the mutt whines.

    Dog owners tend to be bad tenants. And very few dogs are trained to behave decently. Most dogs won’t even sit down when told to.

    And as far as I recall, if you need to get a dog off somebody or something you grab one of it's hind legs out from under it at the same time you grab and hold it's neck (You might also need to just elbow press it's neck down) as it's instinct will be to turn around and deal with whatever has it's leg.

    That’s actually not true under California law. Just because you forbid it in your lease means nothing except nobody has bothered to sue you yet.

    Emotional support dogs and cats require no such training, and you’re legally obliged to accept them along with the tenant supplying a letter signed by a licensed medical professional confirming their need.

    I rent numerous properties, and I’d love for it not to be true. Especially emotional support CATS. Cat urine can cause damage far beyond their pet deposit, and they know that. But I’m legally required to deal with them, according to every legal professional I’ve begged to find a loophole. It’s a major pisser.

    Yes you can. We’ve been doing it for 30 years. Cats and litter boxes, totally gross. Fleas hibernating in carpets. The wording in the application is designed to scare the emotionally unstable away. As you say, no one has ever bothered to sue us. Asians White immigrants like Persians Russians single blacks with good jobs tend to not need a stupid animal around to fulfill them. Just American Whites especially gays. We have a totally tough attorney. We’ve been sued about this and that. Our motto is thousands for legal fees. Not one cent for settlement.

    There’s also the three complainants from other tenants and you’re out. Not really but makes them wary.

    Our application says licensed certified service dogs for the handicapped only. Along with the humans information there’s a line for the dogs medical certification number. And where it was trained , training facility and the trainers phone number. Plus something about a requirement that service dogs be insured for \$10,000 damages.

    That scares them away. Because their darling liddle pee pee doesn’t have a certification

    Maybe talk to a personal injury attorney who does dog bites? An attorney who represents landlords only? Not just evictions but the whole business of rental property? Or talk to a big company like Trinity or Voss in San Francisco? As I remember, ours is just standard template. With the added proof of dog bite insurance.

    Despite all the cat-hate on here, they're really the only acceptable urban pet.

    Dogs belong in the countryside, where they can perform their tasks -- guard dogs, sheep dogs, various kinds of hunting dogs.

    Bringing them into the city is the start of this mad indulgence, not the emotional support dogs.

    Is there anything crazier than people "walking" dogs, i.e. taking them outside to do their business, and then picking it up and disposing it?

    Let me remind you folks that some decades ago, communities tried to stop people from just letting their precious little pets shit all over the streets. They finally had to start fining people., until they finally started obeying the suggestion that they "curb" their dogs. Just like with cigarettes, the same crap (literally) libertarianism: muh freedum! How dare you force me to clean up after my adorable pooch.

    Of course, they're still allowed to urinate all over the public's property.

    That emotional support dog belonged to a serving marine. It was a lab which needed its own seat. Victim needed reconstruction surgery for haw and orbital bones around the eye. The marine owner could not control the dog to get it off the victim. A man marine not a woman btw.

    A real trained licensed certified dog behaves very differently from a pet dog in public. It’s easy to tell.

    1 Real service dog stays about 5 inches to the side and 5 inches behind the heel of the owner.
    2 Real service dog ignores everything and every person but the owner or it’s patient/protectee
    3 public transit even a big lab or shepherd manages to squiggle under the seat so it can’t be seen.
    4 When owner is standing like in line at a bank a real service dog stands as close as possible to owner.

    It’s really easy to tell a real service dog from a pet dog immediately. I’m near a big VA hospital so I see real service dogs with really handicapped vets. I always compliment them about their properly trained obviously service dogs.

The latest trend among liberals is not housebreaking their dogs at all. The breeders, vets, pounds that sell the rescue dogs now favor litter boxes for dogs.

    Never again to that library. Or one of the millions of reasons blacks are bad.

    Yes, the Daily Mail is dreadful, but it actually puts in news that the other media want to avoid. The tabloids are not always so reliably squeamish.

    A good example was the following - a mass murder of old ladies perpetrated by a high melanin individual. Maybe Unz readers know about it. The media was really suppressing this big time presumably because - with the "jogger" trial on - the tale of the Noble Black would be put in jeopardy at a bad time. In November I tried on Google with things like "New York Times" or "Guardian" and the accused`s name. No hits!

    'Why are California Hispanics (a) so much dumber and (b) more compliant to woke whites than Texas Hispanics?'

    Probably because in California, the whites are more 'woke' than they are in Texas.


    Deep down inside every Mexican is a Gringo struggling to get out; Hispanics look up to and emulate whites, and hope to be like them -- and in a generation or two, more or less succeed. Your basic second-generation Mexican is more or less like your basic second-generation Irishman or Pole -- or Jew! -- was. He's fitting in, with some if not complete success. Jaime the carpenter follows the Raiders and thinks about moving to Idaho and can't deal with Guatemalans.

    I was talking with a Hispanic school teacher once -- she would have been born about 1940. Her parents had come up from Mexico at the time of the revolution. She remarked that 'we were really like the Italians or the Jews -- it's just that in our case, more Mexicans kept coming.'

    As far as I'm concerned, that's really the only problem right there. Per se, I have no particular objection to Hispanics who are already here and have acquired citizenship -- the partially black ones excepted. It's just that they keep coming. We now have enough people here, thank you.

It was elegant and expensive looking. Forest green canvas. The dog wasn’t sitting in a natural dog sitting position. There was a system of straps that held him her in a human position. Butt in the seat; dog’s back upright against the back of the car seat. Like a human.

    Then in CVS a woman with a pink doll stroller. In the stroller a small dog wearing a pink dress and hair bow with a pink blankie

    If you get snowed in the next blizzard check out otterman pet otter owners and Darly the Pomeranian with more than 100 outfits and plastic surgery. Or bringing my new puppy baby home.

    French and English bulldogs are pathetic critters. I know one. He was born by cesarean section. Bred by artificial insemenation. Because their heads are too big pelvises too small and legs too short for natural conception and birth. The natural dog neck is part of the spine. Basically horizontal with the capacity to raise the head.

    But those poor bulldogs. The breeders and owners just adore that upright raised head. So their neck vertebrae are unnaturally vertical? Hard to explain unless you know one of those dogs. So the dogs are always in pain around the neck. The one I know tries to be polite and not snappy and grumpy. But I can tell he’s always in pain. They have many medical problems. And die young as young as 7 or 8 .

    Collapsed tracheas and fluxxated patellas Fluxxated the kneecap pops out. And the lower part of the leg sort of goes floating off sideways. Requires one and often 2 surgeries to screw it back in place. Collapsed trachea is self explanatory.

    All the big dogs have hip spine leg and shoulder problems. That’s because 140 years ago big dogs weren’t all that big. Then bigger German shepherds collies greyhounds etc became fashionable. They were bred big too fast and now are like old humans with hip replacements and spinal problems.

    The Dobermans were created and bred much too fast. They had thyroid problems. Which made them very aggressive. Not good in a 100 pound dog.. the breeders have succeeded in breeding less aggressive Dobermans. Law of the markets. No one wanted to buy a large dog known to be aggressive

    Collies are very easy to house break, easy to train well behaved and very pretty. Great dogs. The breeders are busy breeding apartment size small even very small collies. Going way too fast just as they did 100 years ago breeding them too big too fast. I see really small collies. About the size of a big Pekinese. The little dog breeds all are afflicted with fluxxated patellas. Hope that hasn’t happened with those mini collies.

    I’ve seen real Carolina Dingos or Black Mouthed Curs in California. The owners told me they were easy to house break. Dogs very well behaved. They look like smaller and better fed coyotes.

    I recall John Lukacs who observed that when the Ellis Island types came over, they were saying farewell to the Old Country forever -- the Irish held funerals for them. They basically had to assimilate or just die of anomie.

    With the Hispanics, esp. Mexicans, not only are they right across the border, but modern media enables them to hole up in their own little enclaves, just like shitlibs in their bubbles. No incentive or even need to assimilate.

    A real trained licensed certified dog behaves very differently from a pet dog in public. It’s easy to tell.

    1 Real service dog stays about 5 inches to the side and 5 inches behind the heel of the owner.
    2 Real service dog ignores everything and every person but the owner or it’s patient/protectee
    3 public transit even a big lab or shepherd manages to squiggle under the seat so it can’t be seen.
    4 When owner is standing like in line at a bank a real service dog stands as close as possible to owner.

About an hour into the flight I hear growling and snarling and excitement that wakes me up. Soon after the pilot gets on the PA to announce a diversion to “take care of something”. The flight tracker shows us heading into PHX at 1:00 AM. The terminal is dark. There is no other activity. At the gate 3 big dudes get on board and surround the woman and dog. She pleads, Ok, ok I’ll get off. Door closes, we back away and take off. Circle back past the airport and I watch the the taxiway and runway lights get turned off. The airport is completely dark.

    Pit-bulls were bred to be fighters and killers - ring competitors and junk-yard dogs. To bring one home and expect it to act like a Lab or a Shepard or a Beagle is just lunacy.

    Is there anything crazier than people “walking” dogs, i.e. taking them outside to do their business, and then picking it up and disposing it?

    Let me remind you folks that some decades ago, communities tried to stop people from just letting their precious little pets shit all over the streets. They finally had to start fining people., until they finally started obeying the suggestion that they “curb” their dogs. Just like with cigarettes, the same crap (literally) libertarianism: muh freedum! How dare you force me to clean up after my adorable pooch.

    Of course, they’re still allowed to urinate all over the public’s property.

    Well, my recollection of ancient history (Sixties/early Seventies) is that dogs just ran loose. I can remember my dad getting up early to have his coffee on the porch and 'watch the dogs go by.' And that's what they did! There was this regular doggie social club that met from about five to about seven am every morning. There they'd go, trotting down the sidewalk.

    Of course, this had two drawbacks. (1) Dogs generally ended their lives by getting run over by a car, and (2) stepping in dog shit really was a constant hazard. I can still remember doing that barefoot...

    So back in the day day, dogs were not merely uncurbed but unleashed. In fact, I think that herein lies the explanation for all the raccoons, skunks, deer, and wild turkeys that are starting to roam suburban and even urban streets. Without unleashed dogs, life is a lot easier for them.

    I'm chased once a week by an unleashed dog (or an air-headed dog owner not holding the leash tight enough)during my morning runs. So far,.I've been able to hold off the dogs w/ an aggressive posture and haven't had to use my pepper spray. The dog owners look at me like I'm the bad guy.

    Another complaint are the growing number of "dog beaches." Or, heck, dog owners bringing their dogs to the human beaches.

    A new condo just sold in my building. Our condo documents clearly specify "no pets." Two weeks after moving in, the new owner started walking his dog all over the grounds. The condo board tried to enforce the no pets rule, but backed down after the dog owner showed his medical need paperwork. I suspect we'll start seeing more dogs.

    Make the pet owner produce his pet’s medical training certification and medical license. Chances are 99-1 he doesn’t have those licenses and the dog is just a regular dog. Medically trained licensed certified dogs cost \$15-\$20,000.

    'Why are California Hispanics (a) so much dumber and (b) more compliant to woke whites than Texas Hispanics?'

    Probably because in California, the whites are more 'woke' than they are in Texas.


    Deep down inside every Mexican is a Gringo struggling to get out; Hispanics look up to and emulate whites, and hope to be like them -- and in a generation or two, more or less succeed. Your basic second-generation Mexican is more or less like your basic second-generation Irishman or Pole -- or Jew! -- was. He's fitting in, with some if not complete success.

    I was talking with a Hispanic school teacher once -- she would have been born about 1940. Her parents had come up from Mexico at the time of the revolution. She remarked that 'we were really like the Italians or the Jews -- it's just that in our case, more Mexicans kept coming.'

    As far as I'm concerned, that's really the only problem right there. Per se, I have no particular objection to Hispanics who are already here and have acquired citizenship -- the partially black ones excepted. It's just that they keep coming. We now have enough people here, thank you.

    I recall John Lukacs who observed that when the Ellis Island types came over, they were saying farewell to the Old Country forever — the Irish held funerals for them. They basically had to assimilate or just die of anomie.

    With the Hispanics, esp. Mexicans, not only are they right across the border, but modern media enables them to hole up in their own little enclaves, just like shitlibs in their bubbles. No incentive or even need to assimilate.

    #5 and #7 Ozaukee (Port Washington) and Waukesha (Waukesha). Suburban and exurban Milwaukee. (The other WOW county, Washington [West Bend] is #37, and Milwaukee County #21.)
    #3 Menominee (its own seat). An Indian reservation, erected to county status in 1959. Why Indians would almost lead the state in this is an intriguing question. Still, it’s consistently the most Democratic in the state, ahead of Milwaukee and Dane.

    At the bottom of the 50 counties listed is Menominee’s northern neighbor, Langlade (Antigo), 97.93% white in 2000. Menominee’s other two neighboring, parent counties are not shown, but likely similar to Langlade. This is hunter country.

My street in San Mateo is like a Disney dog movie full of dogs. There’s even a blood hound. He goes out on a terrace and bays Never heard one bay before. I was surprised he’s so big. Tiny little dogs big ones. Always leashed even though no cops ever come up the hill.

    Despite all the cat-hate on here, they're really the only acceptable urban pet.

    Dogs belong in the countryside, where they can perform their tasks -- guard dogs, sheep dogs, various kinds of hunting dogs.

    Bringing them into the city is the start of this mad indulgence, not the emotional support dogs.

    Is there anything crazier than people "walking" dogs, i.e. taking them outside to do their business, and then picking it up and disposing it?

    Let me remind you folks that some decades ago, communities tried to stop people from just letting their precious little pets shit all over the streets. They finally had to start fining people., until they finally started obeying the suggestion that they "curb" their dogs. Just like with cigarettes, the same crap (literally) libertarianism: muh freedum! How dare you force me to clean up after my adorable pooch.

    Of course, they're still allowed to urinate all over the public's property.

    There's the madness. I think the idea was urban bourgeoise trying to "ape" the landed gentry by having a brace of borzois or something; same idea with big suburban "lawns" as if they were a country estate. I suppose they'd have a team of Clydesdale's if they had the space and spare cash.

    Well, my recollection of ancient history (Sixties/early Seventies) is that dogs just ran loose. I can remember my dad getting up early to have his coffee on the porch and ‘watch the dogs go by.’ And that’s what they did! There was this regular doggie social club that met from about five to about seven am every morning. There they’d go, trotting down the sidewalk.

    Of course, this had two drawbacks. (1) Dogs generally ended their lives by getting run over by a car, and (2) stepping in dog shit really was a constant hazard. I can still remember doing that barefoot…

    So back in the day day, dogs were not merely uncurbed but unleashed. In fact, I think that herein lies the explanation for all the raccoons, skunks, deer, and wild turkeys that are starting to roam suburban and even urban streets. Without unleashed dogs, life is a lot easier for them.

    I recall John Lukacs who observed that when the Ellis Island types came over, they were saying farewell to the Old Country forever -- the Irish held funerals for them. They basically had to assimilate or just die of anomie.

    With the Hispanics, esp. Mexicans, not only are they right across the border, but modern media enables them to hole up in their own little enclaves, just like shitlibs in their bubbles. No incentive or even need to assimilate.

    The thing is, the landlord is liable for every single thing that happens in his building. Dogs; if a tenant in his own apartment is bitten by his own dog, the landlord is liable and can be sued. The landlord will win that one but it will cost money for legal fees If a tenants dog bites the tenants guest or another tenant or worker neighbor mail carrier or passerby the landlord can be sued and might be held liable. Attorney fees are high. And if it’s a worker needs medical treatment for a dog bite the landlords Wcom insurance rates go up. Plus, what right does your untrained mutt have to bite someone?

    Dogs have fleas. When the dog moves out the fleas hibernate. When a new tenant moved in the fleas wake up and bite the new tenants.

    Dogs poop and pee in buildings and yards. Dogs smell Dogs get ticks and fleas. Dogs charge lunge grown and snarl at people and workers and delivery people. While big bad macho man owner blames the person the untrained mutt menaces . And the owner of the building is liable. Not the a\$\$hole owner.

    Home Depot and some other companies like cable companies contractors won’t allow workers to enter a building until the dog is leashed. That way the worker isn’t either menaced or annoyed by some disgusting mutt.

    French and English bulldogs are pathetic critters. I know one. He was born by cesarean section. Bred by artificial insemenation. Because their heads are too big pelvises too small and legs too short for natural conception and birth. The natural dog neck is part of the spine. Basically horizontal with the capacity to raise the head.

    But those poor bulldogs. The breeders and owners just adore that upright raised head. So their neck vertebrae are unnaturally vertical? Hard to explain unless you know one of those dogs. So the dogs are always in pain around the neck. The one I know tries to be polite and not snappy and grumpy. But I can tell he’s always in pain. They have many medical problems. And die young as young as 7 or 8 .

    Collapsed tracheas and fluxxated patellas Fluxxated the kneecap pops out. And the lower part of the leg sort of goes floating off sideways. Requires one and often 2 surgeries to screw it back in place. Collapsed trachea is self explanatory.

    All the big dogs have hip spine leg and shoulder problems. That’s because 140 years ago big dogs weren’t all that big. Then bigger German shepherds collies greyhounds etc became fashionable. They were bred big too fast and now are like old humans with hip replacements and spinal problems.

    The Dobermans were created and bred much too fast. They had thyroid problems. Which made them very aggressive. Not good in a 100 pound dog.. the breeders have succeeded in breeding less aggressive Dobermans. Law of the markets. No one wanted to buy a large dog known to be aggressive

    Collies are very easy to house break, easy to train well behaved and very pretty. Great dogs. The breeders are busy breeding apartment size small even very small collies. Going way too fast just as they did 100 years ago breeding them too big too fast. I see really small collies. About the size of a big Pekinese. The little dog breeds all are afflicted with fluxxated patellas. Hope that hasn’t happened with those mini collies.

    I’ve seen real Carolina Dingos or Black Mouthed Curs in California. The owners told me they were easy to house break. Dogs very well behaved. They look like smaller and better fed coyotes.

We’re only tangentially related to them, and the Greeleys and Masseys, by way of some old Tudor sisters and the Asshetons. But they’re the only kin we have. And they likewise.

    Hey ho. Not so many of us left now after a thousand years and more, I suppose. Mostly girls, and a good slice of them have always been lebzianos and a bit looney (e.g. communists, vegetarians and cat-ladies).

    At least we’ll be spared the shame of un-White descendants.

    Apartment house tenants, not single family homes or duplex tenants. Apartment houses.

    The thing is, the landlord is liable for every single thing that happens in his building. Dogs; if a tenant in his own apartment is bitten by his own dog, the landlord is liable and can be sued. The landlord will win that one but it will cost money for legal fees If a tenants dog bites the tenants guest or another tenant or worker neighbor mail carrier or passerby the landlord can be sued and might be held liable. Attorney fees are high. And if it’s a worker needs medical treatment for a dog bite the landlords Wcom insurance rates go up. Plus, what right does your untrained mutt have to bite someone?

    Dogs have fleas. When the dog moves out the fleas hibernate. When a new tenant moved in the fleas wake up and bite the new tenants.

    Dogs poop and pee in buildings and yards. Dogs smell Dogs get ticks and fleas. Dogs charge lunge grown and snarl at people and workers and delivery people. While big bad macho man owner blames the person the untrained mutt menaces . And the owner of the building is liable. Not the a$$hole owner.

    Home Depot and some other companies like cable companies contractors won’t allow workers to enter a building until the dog is leashed. That way the worker isn’t either menaced or annoyed by some disgusting mutt. While the owner whines “ he’s just trying to be friendly “ You try humping a 44 inch wide refrigerator through a 40 inch wide door with some big stupid dog jumping all over you. While the owner who can’t control the mutt whines.

    Dog owners tend to be bad tenants. And very few dogs are trained to behave decently. Most dogs won’t even sit down when told to.

    Two dog owners I’ve seen recently.

    I parked and a man parked right next to me. I looked over and in the passenger seat was a little bulldog in a baby car seat. Some kind of special dog car 💺 seat. Small, perfect for that size dog. It was elegant and expensive looking. Forest green canvas. The dog wasn’t sitting in a natural dog sitting position. There was a system of straps that held him her in a human position. Butt in the seat; dog’s back upright against the back of the car seat. Like a human.

    Then in CVS a woman with a pink doll stroller. In the stroller a small dog wearing a pink dress and hair bow with a pink blankie

    If you get snowed in the next blizzard check out otterman pet otter owners and Darly the Pomeranian with more than 100 outfits and plastic surgery. Or bringing my new puppy baby home. And shopping for more stuff than middle class human babies get. New baby meets his human brother and sister. Or dog dad And pee pad toileting vs house breaking.

    In some of those videos the daddy or mommy feeds the dog with a spoon. Dog mommy is bad but dog dad is just too much. I know none of the men of UNZ are dog dads.

    Also, dog owners don’t make good tenants. First they tend to be self righteous liberals.
     
    (blink) What? I see dog owners as more likely to have kids and to be more focused on home and hearth than non-dog owners. That sounds like two good ingredients for neighbors as well as being more likely to be conservative. If you were talking about cats then I would agree on the political bias. Some quick googling confirms those intuitions, although I'm not thrilled with the rigor of the analyses.

    Another reason dog owners and their dogs don’t belong in apartments is dog litter boxes. That’s the latest fad. Dog litter boxes in apartments. Big boxes full of special dog litter. Or sometimes plastic grass and a deep tray to keep the urine till the owner pours the urine down the toilet.

    heck, even my cat hates the litter box and prefers to go outside. I have a cat box in the utility room just in case he gets left inside. I tell you, sometimes months go by without him visiting it because we just let him out like you would a dog.
  198. For me, there’s no more salient indicator of the decline of America, post-Civil Rights, than the library. Libraries are used for dumping grounds of “kids working on their GEDs”in the afternoons, giving out food boxes, diapers (the latter two involving long lines of cars), … social service agencies. And of course Drag Queen story hour. It used to be a shrine of quiet reflection.

  199. On a related note, I was headed east on I-94 yesterday, about midway between Bismarck and Fargo, and I spotted a U-Haul truck towing a compact car. So I said to my girlfriend that this guy just had to be a refugee from one of the three coastal states. I got up too close behind him, in order to confirm that yes, he was from Oregon.

    Service dogs and ESA ("emotional support animals") are different but the law gets tricky from place to place. Needless to say, ESAs are 100 percent bulldink, but the classification was created so that assholes could get their monsters into apartments (etc) that otherwise prevent them. This sort of thing is why real cops sometimes just execute loose dogs on sight when serving a warrant or whatever.

    The guard here looks like he had a 15 dollar baton. Not good enough. If you aren't packin' heat, here's the correct technique:

    Remember the two lawyers in San Francisco who were affiliated with the Aryan Brotherhood were criminally prosecuted when their two Presa Canario dogs killed one of their neighbors. One was convicted of murder and the other one was convicted of manslaughter.

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2002/mar/22/usa.duncancampbell

    It was a big deal when I was living in the bay area 20 years ago while attending Cal.

    But those dogs were Presa Canarios, not unike the American Staffordshire Terrier, also known as a pitbull.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Presa_Canario

    I don't know why dogs attacking people is a thing in San Francisco; but I know DA Chesa Boudin is not going to prosecute the presumably homeless cretin who brought the pitbull into the library. (Anyone who uses the internet at the public library is going to be homeless cretin).

    California is such a mess, today on the 55 southbound freeway I saw an amber alert sign that said to the effect "If you are drunk or high, don't dirve." Whoever is running the amber alerts in the state cannot even spell "drive." It's such a joke, and these people want to run healthcare like the EDD and the DMV. We are doomed. It's like Idiocracy.

    French and English bulldogs are pathetic critters. I know one. He was born by cesarean section. Bred by artificial insemenation. Because their heads are too big pelvises too small and legs too short for natural conception and birth. The natural dog neck is part of the spine. Basically horizontal with the capacity to raise the head.

    But those poor bulldogs. The breeders and owners just adore that upright raised head. So their neck vertebrae are unnaturally vertical? Hard to explain unless you know one of those dogs. So the dogs are always in pain around the neck. The one I know tries to be polite and not snappy and grumpy. But I can tell he’s always in pain. They have many medical problems. And die young as young as 7 or 8 .

    Collapsed tracheas and fluxxated patellas Fluxxated the kneecap pops out. And the lower part of the leg sort of goes floating off sideways. Requires one and often 2 surgeries to screw it back in place. Collapsed trachea is self explanatory.

    All the big dogs have hip spine leg and shoulder problems. That’s because 140 years ago big dogs weren’t all that big. Then bigger German shepherds collies greyhounds etc became fashionable. They were bred big too fast and now are like old humans with hip replacements and spinal problems.

    The Dobermans were created and bred much too fast. They had thyroid problems. Which made them very aggressive. Not good in a 100 pound dog.. the breeders have succeeded in breeding less aggressive Dobermans. Law of the markets. No one wanted to buy a large dog known to be aggressive

    Collies are very easy to house break, easy to train well behaved and very pretty. Great dogs. The breeders are busy breeding apartment size small even very small collies. Going way too fast just as they did 100 years ago breeding them too big too fast. I see really small collies. About the size of a big Pekinese. The little dog breeds all are afflicted with fluxxated patellas. Hope that hasn’t happened with those mini collies.

    I’ve seen real Carolina Dingos or Black Mouthed Curs in California. The owners told me they were easy to house break. Dogs very well behaved. They look like smaller and better fed coyotes.

    Thanks for that, Alden, about the infirmities of overbred dogs. And collies tend towards retinal detachment and German shepherds towards arthritic hips, pug-faced dogs towards chronically leaky eyes and eye infections. It’s cruel.

    Steve, I think that LA finally cleaned out the main library downtown, because after the fire and restoration the city was promoting it as a tourist attraction. Do you know if that is true or is it still a homeless clubhouse? I remember reading that the place was pretty bad even pre-Covid early in the growing homeless crisis. It would make sense that after the Covid forced them to shut the facility it would be a good opportunity to not let the problem fester again.

    Dogs smell

    My parents had a female dog many years ago which gave off a terrible smell when she was in heat. In those periods she wasn’t allowed in the house and had to stay down in the basement/garage.

    When I go down there today I can still smell that dog 20 years later.
