Scott April 18, 2014 at 11:30 am
@John D....... Sometimes you have to change up names to keep people like the Boss from insulting youRead More everytime they see a post from you, just because we don't agree with his his views. I thought the point of a Blog was to have a discussion? Well in order to have a real discussion, there has to be two sides. What did he expect everyone reading his blog to agree with his views? If he can't handle comments from the other side without reverting to name calling and insulting people. Then he shouldn't have not started his blog. At the end of the day. Almost any dog, of any breed, can be made to be viscous. Pits are in the spotlight right now because of the types of people that own them and what they do with them, plain and simple. Educate the people to the type of dog the Pit really is. Then you wouldn't have people saying we need to eliminate the breed. Education. Not Elimination.

Brian Utterback April 18, 2014 at 09:07 am
Did you read the documents. I couldn't find the whole thing, but if you follow the links, youRead More eventually get to an excerpt at a Right Wing page that presents it as damning, so I have to think that it is the worst paragraph they could find in the newly released documents. The paragraph says that Senator Whitehouse told the DOJ that they should prosecute organizations that lied on their 1024 tax forms and the DOJ contacted Lerner asking for a contact at the IRS they could talk to about it. No mention of anything partisan, merely the idea that the DOJ should prosecute people that are breaking the law. Now we know the real reason that Lerner took the 5th, because people like Reubens will take literally anything as evidence against her.

David Utterback, How can we get to the TRUTH of what happened??? This isn't the first time thatRead More members of Barry's Administration have dodged direct questions regarding illegal activities. We have Eric Holder The Attorney General of the United States withholding information about Fast & Furious, We have Kathleen Sebelius withholding information regarding the Failed Launch of ObamaCare, we have Hillary Clinton withholding information regarding Benghazi, and we have Barry withholding information regarding his knowledge about any of these scandals. Do you see a trend with this so called TRANSPARENT Administration ????

If these last comments between Gus's, John Murphy, the animal hospital , and my own can change bossRead More hog from posting all that he does then nothing will besides us to stop enabling hom and giving him the attention he obviously seeks. If our words can't get through at this point and have him at least admit the breed shouldn't be banned then all we can do is stop enabling him and remove him from our blog watch list. Take away his attention an you take away his power.
JD April 18, 2014 at 07:15 am
Gus - Lets Ll remember that dogs are animals and their behavior is not always predictable orRead More logical. I've always been a dog lover but the ridiculously strong & dangerous breeds are not good house pets. good temperaments in dogs. Your stats while interesting don't mention that yorkies, shih Tzu and beagles haven't killed or malled many people. I've had 2 goldens and a small dog that were never aggressive. We should trust government testing methods that assure us kids and the elderly should be safe? I do think certain breeds shouldn't be sold or bred. If I'm wrong then force training and insurance for those dumb enough to want one. If the dog gets lose you pay a massive fine. People should be safe from other people's dogs!
Snag man April 18, 2014 at 08:27 am
John - You are a hypocrite and a joke.... "I own a scary dog because I am a wimp" blahRead More blah blah.... followed up with "sticking a 44 Ruger Redhawk up a butt". Who is the one hiding behind the scary object you candyass. You people who are on here blithering about a dog breed are clueless, pathetic, and beyond stupid. Worry about the little maggots you all breed and are raising (or supposed to be) and make sure they aren't terrorizing their neighborhoods. I read a story on here daily about some moron who slaps his girl around and where are you people? You are on here whining about dogs.... Focus on raising your kids not to be idiots like yourselves, and we will have a change that really matters. Heather - Don't even bother with these morons.... they are spineless candyasses who are less intelligent than 99% of Pit bulls. The more you respond to them, the more of a voice they have.
Bill Greiner April 16, 2014 at 08:34 am
Isn't this interesting. Day, who recently is coming off a humiliating defeat in Bedford, is nowRead More trying to exert his influence in another part of NH because he wants to control the NHGOP. Doesn't he understand that the voters don't want to listen to what he is trying to peddle? Perhaps he will run this guy's campaign and have the same success he had in his own failed campaign and that of his roommate last month here in Bedford. Perhaps Day can organize robocalls like he did in Senator Boutin's District. I wonder how the investigation into those calls is going. I almost forgot to mention again; Day is planning on running for delegate in Bedford (along with his roommate). Any guesses as to how that will turn out?
Steve From NH April 17, 2014 at 07:37 am
"we can recapture the “Live Free or Die” spirit of New Hampshire"? Who isRead More "we"? Since you and the people you represent just invaded here to show us poor ignorant rubes how our own state should be run by 'reforming state government at all levels' - your words - and have repeatedly shown that you don't know and don't care about the desires of those of us who have spent the sweat equity to make NH what it is, which unfortunately has attracted vermin like so many of your FSP nutcases have turned out to be... I assume that by "we" you mean NOT THE CITIZENS OF NH. We are not stupid, we are not lazy, we are not takers, and we are not complacent or ignorant - but we are very much offended by you and your group assuming that we are all of those. If you want to become a part of the community and work to keep NH a better place while recognizing that those with different opinions and needs have as much right to be here and be represented as you do, and you do not - by virtue of your "libertarian superiority" deserve to have your own way of things, then welcome. If you intend continue to hurl thinly veiled insults at us, and pretend that those of you who just got here to engage in "activism" and "reform" are here to save us from our own stupid selves and bully people like Jim Scanlon when he dares to question your motives then get the hell out and go back to where you came from. I am quite sure you would feel the same if circumstances were reversed.
Bill Greiner April 17, 2014 at 02:31 pm
Steve, well said. Day is nothing more than a petulant, trust fund recipient who has a narrow viewRead More of the world and feels that he "knows best" for everyone else, even though he has only been in NH for a short time. He realizes that his efforts to expand his cult here in NH have not worked out as planned, and he is scrambling to try and get more people to buy into his warped way of thinking. He is not helping NH; he is doing his best to make it an undesirable place to live. He is not helping the Republican Party; he is trying to hijack it by bringing more fringe players like himself into the mix. Ironic that his step mom is in the RNC, and yet he is running around like a fool in NH and inflicting damage on the NHGOP for his own personal gain.

Agreed but the problem we are running into here is at the end of the tragedy, you are told the dogRead More belongs to the child (usually a teenager) and the parents refuse to take any responsibility at all. Even to the extent of telling authorities themselves to put the dog down. It's disgusting the measures some take to avoid responsibility and get away with it! You are correct the laws are there for the law abiding citizens, the rest couldn't careless.
Jack Baillargeron April 16, 2014 at 04:57 pm
Doesn't matter, If the teen lives in the home or one the parents property they are responsible.Read More Their home owners insurance company can be sued as well. Putting the dog down does not negate the incident. It is like destroying the knife used to stab somebody. The stabber is still responsible. I am not a lawyer or anything like that but read enough cases and know enough victims as a Retired firefighter to know you can win on these things easily. Might not be able to get money from some of these people but you can get them banned from being able to own an animal again at the least in my opinion.
Jack Baillargeron April 16, 2014 at 05:05 pm
Would point out also that is the reason for getting leash law or town ordinances. They merely stateRead More the rule and have no age limitation. I have seen children walking a 40lb dog as young as 8 to 10. There is no way they could control that dog unless the dog has been very well trained along with the child being trained so the dog will obey it. Problem with society right now is that no one takes self-responsibility for their own action anymore (well any criminal activity or incidents like this). Idiot owners like to blame the dog also to negate their responsibility. Start throwing them in jail with sentences they would give to a person for doing what the dog does and you would have deterent. But there will always be some excuse. It sickens me to no end.

Boss Hog I see you changed your subtitle from "telling the whole story" to "helpingRead More people make decisions". Was that because I pointed out the FACT that you were NOT sharing the "whole story"? Let me point out something else, your NOT helping anyone with you simpleton approach to a Blog. I get it, you don't like certain dogs. It's your choice and your opinion. Your NON blog is just a collection of stories written by someone else and pictures that have nothing to do with the stories you recycle. It it exactly this biased reporting of a collection of horror stories about people being attacked that creates a fear of these dogs. Not all bully breed dogs are evil and bad. I feel bad for the people injured. It's terrible. But you neglect to tell the OTHERSIDE of the bully breeds. I personally know many pitbull type dogs that do good things but unfortunately we live in a drama addicted society so happy stories don't sell. you are in no way helping anyone. Try actually writing more than five bullet points about a terrible story. It would be nice to see some real discussion. It's unfortunate that many people hate these dogs based solely on the news instead of based on personal experience. I used to be that person until I actually met several pitbull dogs.
Jeremy McHugh April 14, 2014 at 08:46 pm
Hi Maya- I hopped back on this thread for one purpose- you and others on this thread have madeRead More sincere, intelligent comments. But you are ignoring the cardinal rule of the internet: Don't Feed the Trolls. Boss Hogg is a troll. His biased presentation of one sided material, "culled" (pun intended) from a broad, unrelated array of news sources, is classic trolling. Remember: Trolling is not just for the comments! The whole purpose of a blog can be to troll for outrage, and pageviews, as seems to be the case here.
Gary Renfrod April 15, 2014 at 06:33 am
You people all should get a life. By definition none of you who speak out against pit bulls haveRead More any first hand experience with pit bulls let alone owned, or taken care of one. My pit mix is the best, sweetest dog ever. And he was the eighth of seven prior fosters - some good, others great. I know there are bad dogs out there, and pits like any larger dog are powerful. So when they're bad, they're dangerous - but there's nothing unique to the breed that makes them so. By the way, my cocker spaniel/beagle mix is crazy and dangerous.

If dogs have their ancestors wolves, we could see how human change genes of them. This example isRead More showing that all domestic animals genes where changed. We eat most of them or products from them. In thousands years we did not see a huge problems here. GMO products could be introduced right now and despite majority of science did not see any problems here people must know and choose. Majority think in their time that earth is the center of universe. They was wrong. Majority think that greenhouse gases are responsible for climate change. They are wrong. Majority in science is nonsense and create from science political propaganda machine for political or economical reason.

#Paul, you bring up a great point there - that there are hefty repercussions for any dog attacks andRead More it forces people to be responsible owners and actually handle their dogs properly. The same cannot be said with the general public. Sometimes the owners may get a fine, but some don't even bother registering, fixing, or getting rabies shots. The fines for that are very minimal. I think your answer poses a big question - shouldn't we have more in place that reprimands the owners? In some states, an owner that abuses or neglects a dog can still own a dog if they choose.
