"Concerned by the increasing number of youths involved in dog fighting, former animal control officer Sue Sternberg decide to do something about it.
In 2002, Sternberg started Lug-Nuts, a program that encourages inner-city teens to enter their dogs in weight-pulling contests instead of fights."

For crying out loud, can't they just allow them to be pets?
Is this where we are now? We actually expend energy and resources trying to sweet talk these cretins into alternatives? We as a society are required to find a way for them to fill this vacuum in their otherwise empty lives?

Our inner cities are a mess. A total disgrace. The end result of YEARS of failed liberal policies, of encourging reproduction out of marriage, of absentee parents, of children raising children, of a society which has become increasingly Godless and irresponsible.

Maybe the solution is to start some kind of National Public Works Program for trouble-making inner-city youths. Put them in military style barracks, teach them self-discipline and respect for authority and put them to work on constructive public projects - sort of like (GASP - God forgive me!!) FDR did back in the 1930s, but run better.

We also MUST STOP the atheization of America, the war on God, the Ten Commandments, prayer, and the fundamental basic Judaeo-Christian principles upon which this nation was founded and so long grew and prospered.
