There is no puppy dog roundup in Sikeston.
The site is being renamed "Democrat Underground Stupid" in order to acquire some validity.
All I know was some of the St. Louis stations said somebody was arresting all the dogs in Sikeston.... or something like that. I didn't think they would pick up Swamp or Semo471 though, somehow I have remembered or conjured up that they both lived in Sikeston.
Ike is not aware, but that is not THE Fox cable channel, that is a local Fox affiliate, Channel 2 I believe.
Anyway, the worrisome part, we don't have enough problems already, they brought all of Sikeston 's Public Enemy #1 dogs to St. Charles. It may not be safe here anymore.
I better check with Doctor D & G... this may be a conspiracey, another diabolical plot to get me.
Wheels, That big boom you heard the other day was a secret government project to gauge the effects of a dumbing bomb on pit bulls before unleashing it on the sheeple. Another test will involve pit bulls on car roofs vs roofs of the mouths. :)
You may be able to develope another slogan.... 'a chicken in every pot, a cell phone in every pocket and a pit bull on every car's roof.'
I read your post again.... you think Obama is getting ready to test the "Big Bang" Theory here in Missouri? We are one of the red states, so I think we should be concerned.
Wheels, they interviewed a guy that was around when that bridge was built, I thought you might have been watching the demolition, keeping an eye peeled for pit bulls.
I think Kennett got worked up over dobermans and pits a few years back.
I watched the bridge demolition from the comfort of my chair on the 6:00 O'clock news. I was surprised that bridge was worn out. But I guess it is 56 years or thereabouts old. The Interstate System started right here in Charleytown in 1956... at least according to the sign out on the highway.
I wonder if that was a Catholic or French bridge. :)
Maybe Theorist can enlighten us.
I believe that bridge was referred to as the Blanchette Bridge here in Les Petites Cotes. Blanchette having been a Frenchman who founded Les Petites Cotes and a Catholic as well probably never envisioned there being a bridge there.
That is as much as I know, we will have to defer to Theorist to determine if it was a French or a Catholic bridge, but chances are by the time it was built it could have been a Presbyterian Bridge, or a Baptist Bridge... then of course we cannot leave out the Lutherans. It may have been a Lutheran Bridge. I am so confused. Then it may have been a Episcopalian Bridge.... I get in so much trouble trying to spell that.

Can you get fox news in Spain? What time is it over there right now? How's the economy doing? The riots? The secession movement? The massive government debt? The cuts to retirement and medical care programs.

Old John can't help it... he was raised over in Bollinger County. ;-)
This is kinda fun
I had read somewhere there was a group of dogs headed to Hawaii for a Christmas feast.I fear they are going to learn about hope and change also.
You do realize that Scott Co is Democrat don't you? Why isn't the Missourian covering this?
Scott County was a big Democrat area but mo longer. It started changing about the time Carter ran us into the ground.
There hasn't been a Republican elected to a Scott County office since the 20's. The 1920's. As in the Swinging Twenties. You know, flappers, Prohibition, the Jazz Age.....THOSE 20's.
I see Wiffle is still dodging the fact he created a false thread

How was it false?
I was talking about the national elections. Scott county is conservative whether it be Democrat or not. They don't like the spendthrifts.
As I recall the old rumours from when I worked in Sikeston years ago, there was a roundup of stray dogs and cats every year just before the annual 'Tamale Day' was held.
That rumour was never substantiated.
Sikeston officials say the 'roundup' is not happening.
The city claims they conducted an 'audit' of licensed owners and would sieze the dogs whose owners were found not to be in compliance with the restrictions (a lesson, perhaps, for those pushing for 'reasonable licensing requirements' for firearms). The city expected to sieze about 20 dogs, but siezed a total of 3 as of four days ago.
The attention of bloggers outside the city was attracted when the Humane Society of Sikeston began shipping dogs to shelters outside the city. This was done before the 'roundup' to make room for the anticipated arrival of dogs from the 'audit'. The Humane Society was expected hold the dogs until the owner's property was brought into compliance. One would assume that the 'audit' was requested because non-compliance was seen by neighbors, but I have not yet read the reason for the city to order such an 'audit'.
I'm shocked to see you cite Fox News as your authority on the subject, by the way. Doesn't that harm your party standing?
The Democrat Underground articles says:
"It doesn't matter that owners did everything to comply with the law. It doesn't seem to matter that the dogs had no history of aggression or complaints about them. It only seems to matter that they look like pit bulls, and the city authorities want them dead. All of them."
So, yes, Democrat Underground does seem to have it wrong, even if the 'audit' is being conducted, since only those dogs whose owners did not do 'everything to comply with the law'. Nor does it appear that the city authorities 'want them dead', they only want the owners to comply with the law.
Sikeson Missouri's Humane Society has this posted on their facebook page:
"I've had alot of messages lately asking about the situation going on here in Sikeston. I've read the good majority of the articles and the seem to get progressively more false as the go on. So here is the facts.
"We do in fact have BSL (Breed Specific Legislation) in Sikeston, MO. It has been in place for some years now, it unfairly targets Pit Bulls and labels them as "inherently dangerous". If you are to own one inside the City Limits then you have to meet the requirements set forth by the city which includes, registration of the dog, Beware of Dog signs on property, Insurance, a pen with a secure top and bottom as well as a lock for the gate and if the dog leaves your property it must be on a 4ft leash and a muzzle. This ordinance needs to be changed. Countless studies have shown that banning/restricting breeds does not work, never has, never will.
"The Sikeston Humane Society had NO part in the seizing of dogs. ACO and the shelter are 2 completely different entities.
"Also the amount of dogs we got in is wrong as well. That day we only received in 3 Pit Bulls for Non Compliance (3 to many I agree). The 20 dogs that everyone keeps reading about was an estimate that an ACO gave me, they never finished Wednesday. I also talked to the City Manger who said that they weren't doing a round up but rather an audit to make sure that the people who had met compliance once before were still in accordance with it, if they weren't then their dog would be seized. I do not know when they will finish this audit, with all this media attention I doubt they even will.The dogs we got in are not subject to immediate euthanasia, anyone who knows me knows that I would never do that. The owners are given 10 days to get their dogs back, if they need more time I always work with them. If the owners do not want them back then they are either put up for adoption or sent to rescues.
"Also the dogs we sent to rescues to make room for the incoming Pit Bulls were already in the shelter. We sent a total of 40 dogs to rescues all over not just St. Louis. We are lucky enough to have alot of rescues that support the shelter and when we asked for help they all came to our aid. I can't begin to thank them enough for helping us out when we needed it the most.
"The BSL here in Sikeston does need to be changed. I moved from Sikeston partly because I couldn't walk my own dogs down the street without them being muzzled and trust me, it'll be a cold day in hell when you see my dogs muzzled. If you want to help then contact local Sikeston City Officials and POLITELY tell them you would like to see a generic dangerous dog ordinance put in place, one that does not profile breeds and puts more responsibility on the owners because after all the monster isn't on the end of the leash it is the person holding the it.
"In my 3 years here at the shelter I have never felt like we have been as close as we are now to the law being changed, we could actually do this as long as we stay polite, educated and focused on the real goal, protecting families."
