Christians? These are Christians?

This will be a short note, as I think it does not need much "blah blah" from me tonight. Simply said, individuals calling themselves Christians are spreading hate filled rhetoric as we near election day. I do not get the chance to go to church, but I've learned from Dads that Christians love, respect and treat all of God's children as equals and prescious gifts. Well, I do not think this story displays such Christian values.

I only ask that you share this story with everyone you know and let them know that Christians really do not act or think this way. True Christians are ones who love, care and know, in the words of my favorite artist Jewell, "in the end, only kindness matters."

I'm not a real American?

OK all my fans, this one you have got to hear! As this important election draws to an end, even the coolest of pups gets a bit ruffled under the ears with all the false, negative and down right ugly campaigning. I mean for the love of Rin Tin Tin -- people are losing jobs, houses, their retirement -- and might I add their pups!

So when this odd, odd, odd woman named Michelle Bachmann recently went on TV to say she believes Barack Obama is anti-American, as well as possibly other Members of Congress, I had to leave that comfortable Disney blanket that has become my resting place late in the evening. For the sixth district voters of Minnesota, please write and call this woman and ask her when she'll spend her time tackling the issues of the economy, health care and jobs and stop being a very poor mouthpiece for far right conservative clucks!

Now, for those of you who do not know about this terribly disturbed woman, let me share a brief exert from comments she gave regarding gay and lesbian Americans:

"And again, don’t misunderstand. I am not here bashing people who are homosexuals, who are lesbians, who are bisexual, who are transgendered. We need to have profound compassion for the people who are dealing with the very real issue of sexual dysfunction in their life, and sexual identity disorders. This is a very real issue. It’s not funny, it’s sad. Any of you who have members of your family that are in the lifestyle - we have a member of our family that is. This is not funny. It’s a very sad life. It’s part of Satan, I think, to say this is gay. It’s anything but gay."

So let me see if I have this straight (no pun intended). Dad and Dad have a sad life. Their life is part of "Satan". They have a "disorder" and "dysfunction". Well, "Representative" Bachmann let me tell you something from a pup who has two wonderful Dad's. On their worst day they are not as hate-filled and close to Satan as you, "Representative" Bachmann. And on their worst day, they are not as "sad" as you, "Representative Bachmann."

I might remind my fans, I'm quite the calm and lovable pup. Ask anyone. My tail wags all day long. But this woman who somehow has a role in shaping our nations laws made me wonder if "that woman from Wasilla" really is the most unqualified person to run for office. I'm guessing the two of them probably bowl, roller derby or shoot helpless animals from airplanes together.

Many times I laugh after I post a blog. This one makes me mad -- damn mad. There is something we can do about this, however. Vote her and the hatemongers out! Unfortunately, I cannot go and vote (although I'm a hell of a lot smarter than some who can) but many of you can and will!! And if you all go and vote against hate and division, Michelle, Sarah and the hatemongers can return to running gun stores in "small town Pro-America" where "real Americans" can be found.
