The reviews are in: ‘Zero Dark Thirty makes me hate muslims’
The film Zero Dark Thirty is now showing in theaters nationwide and reactions are starting to appear on social networks. Here are some collected on the tumblr site dapsandhugs.
Here are some more that I found:
While the film has obviously found its supporters, backlash against it continues to grow. Yesterday, director Kathryn Bigelow defended her film from charges it promotes torture in an Op-Ed for the Los Angeles Times. Bigelow claimed artistic license writing, “those of us who work in the arts know that depiction is not endorsement.” While this is obviously true, the film goes further than depiction.
As Deepa Kumar wrote the film promotes extra judicial killing and the drone warfare that has become the hallmark of the Obama administration’s “war on terror.”
Not sure? Check out this tweet from the official film Twitter account:
I’m a huge fan of Irish Terriers. They are smart, funny and completely entertaining. They are also the mellowest of all the terrier breeds (which says a lot). Below describes 2 rescue Irish terriers - each in desperate need of a new home. If you are interested, please read and if you know of someone who might be interested please let me know.
2 Male Irish terriers need homes:
One is an Intact 9 year old male is great with all female and little male dogs. He is trained, very well behaved and knows German commands (wow - he speaks German - how smart!). Sadly his former owner and her husband are now permanently in a nursing home. This sweet boy, Casey Jones, is mostly living in a crate. He is in good health and is leash ready for long walks. He was used to lots of walks and the run of the house. Breeder is only asking for shipping costs from Colorado on a non-stop flight along with the cost of a health certificate.
The other male is a neglected 6 year old, Rusty, from Tillamook, OR, who had a prolapsed rectum that the owners wouldn’t treat. He’s all healed now but needs training and socializing due to neglect. He might be okay with another female dog, but does not get along with other males dogs. He will be a project and needs an experienced dog owner. He is on Petfinder. The owners hope he will be adopted locally, in Oregon, but who knows.
Please help spread the word and feel free to contact me here if you know of someone who could love one of these adorable dogs.
I’m putting this out there for my dear friend Holly. That’s her sweet girl Scarlett, pictured. (She’s called shotgun on many of our garage sale Saturdays. She is just so smart.) Holly wanted to give you a visual of how Irish Terriers are just the best dogs. If anyone out there needs a great companion, here are a couple of dogs who would love a fighting chance.

Obama just said they need to “keep America safe over there.”
“Over there,” meaning the Middle East. That’s why this whole thing is so fundamentally flawed. America exists in America, within its own borders, and that’s where “American law,” ends. You should not be “over there.”…
