@kathleen — My husband’s and my cats do this. Whenever one of us is upset, or sick, they cuddle up to us and purr their little hearts out to try to comfort us. I think you’re right: Sara’s cats just fucking hate her.
Yeah i dont know how they do it, but they really can sense when something is wrong!
Dogs are NOT better than cats. Dogs are so needy and annoying, cats are well independent yet loving.
Also i dont get the massive thing over Skye. Obviously he’s a tit because he cheated on his wife, but why should it matter that she’s in the army fighting a war? What a fucking pointless and stupid thing to do. No sympathy.
I dont really think i expressed myself very well in that. What i meant was that, yes, Skye is an idiot for cheating on his wife and then going on about his divorce on facebook, but the fact that she is a soldier fighting in a war shouldnt even come into it. I personally dont agree with war, and therefore dont really feel like i owe people who fight in them any extra respect or sympathy simply because they are fighing in a war.
@kathleen: Fair enough. I tend to agree with you. I get there differently, but I get to the same conclusion. I don’t necessarily think that his wife deserves more (or less) sympathy for being cheated on than if she were a long-haul trucker or other job that would mandate long absences simply because she is in the military. It’s a shitty thing to do no matter what. And he makes it even worse to be a dick and then brag about it on Facebook.
I do extend my sympathy to her because she clearly lacks the part of her brain that allows her to detect and avoid douchbags.
Secondly, you referred to Jane Fonda as “Hanoi Jane,” repeating the notion that her criticism of America’s Vietnam campaign—which was close to fourty years ago now, I might add, so I don’t see how the continued use of that moniker is even relevant—somehow puts her in the wrong? Why, because Vietnam was this noble exercise in exporting democracy, or even a just war? Yeah, it may be tempting to parrot the hawk’s position that every war America wages is inherently justified and immune to dissent, but seriously—read some history.
Finally, if you really, honestly believe in this glorious dream of what America supposedly stands for, you’d do well not to insult people for freely stating their views in a public forum.
It dosn’t matter whether or not you like war or the soldiers that partake is said war. The fact is if it were not for those brave men and women, you would probably have a modern day Hittler waltzing into America (or any other cuntry for that matter) to claim it and it’s inhabitants as his (or her) own.
I don’t like violence or war, but i do deeply respect those who have fought, who are fighting, and who will fight for my future.
