FITNA- the 15 min film that has the Islamists raging again

This is a short film produced by a Dutch politician named Geert Wilders. In it he uses the Quran and video clips of the extremists that perpetrate this global jihad. I must warn you that it is quite shocking. His point appears to be that someone in the Muslim world needs to step forward and propose a reformation where the violent passages are removed. I have over the last year read the Quran ( it' s really not long, just hard to read) many of the stories are similar to Old Testiment Bible stories. What is missing is the concept of Grace and forgiveness. The Netherlands ,specifically and Europe in general, is seeing a great deal of Islamic violence, using free speech and democracy against them. This film has caused outrage among the religion of perpetual outrage and forced Live Leak ( Europes You Tube) to pull it down, even getting condemnation from the UN Secretary General. Watch it for yourself and make up your own mind. Listening to many of these Imams speak in there own words might open some eyes to just what they are preaching.

Somebody should throw this guy from a bridge!

Here is a disturbing story from Utah. Someone in a red truck stopped on a Interstate overpass and threw a Boxer over the edge. The dog survived with amazingly minor injuries.

Bute Toxicity follow-up (Right Dorsal Colitis)

This is just a follow up on a previous post about "bute toxicity". The horse that received 60 grams of bute by mistake was finally put down. It is a very sad story but it highlights the need to be constantly aware of exactly what medications you are giving your horse......make sure you know what you are are giving,how much to give and what problems can occur. Once the drugs are in you cant get them out. Here is a sonogram I did the other night on this horse and it is far
and away the worst Right Dorsal Colitis I have ever seen. The ulcered area was over 3 feet long. Can you imagine how painful a 3 foot long ulcer would be. Additionally, typical anti-ulcer medications don't reach this part of the bowel very effectively so there is little that can be done.
The liver is to the right and the RDC is to the left, the measured area is the colon wall that should only be 3mm thick. You can see how swollen it is.

Mane and Tail- making something unique from the hair

I had to look at a horse for tying up the other day and the owner Pam Cramer, has a very unique business. She makes jewelery from your horses mane or tail hair. We have recommended this to clients that have lost a horse. It's a wonderful way to remember a special friend. In the past many owners held onto a horse's shoes,halter,blankets, ect. Now they can have a bracelet or other form of beautiful jewelery made from a small segment of mane or tail to keep forever. I would never have thought that something so nice could be made from horse hair but Pam does it somehow. You can look at her website here

USS New York- Built with steel from the Twin Towers

The USS New York was christened today in New Orleans. This is significant because the Bow was constructed with steel salvaged from the World Trade Center . I had heard that the steel was to be used but didn't know what the destination would be. "

The vessel's bow stem comprises 7.5 tons of steel salvaged from the World Trade Center.

As the Navy notes: "The ship is named New York in honor of the state, the city and the victims of Sept. 11, 2001.... Use of this steel symbolizes the spirit and resiliency of the people of New York."

And the official motto of the vessel?

"Never Forget." How appropriate....I think it's a shame that so many of us have forgoten what happened and that the threat still remains. Our sensitivities prevent our media from showing the images on TV, I feel we should see that over and over, because our enemies have not gone away.

The massive, 684-foot-long ship was a sketch on a drawing board on 9/11 when the towers fell. Then-Gov. George Pataki led the effort to have it named the New York, a title last borne by a 1914-46 battleship. There was also the New York City, a nuclear submarine retired in 1997."

Hopefully this ship will in some way contribute to helping all of those that wish us harm, find their 72 virgins.
