    He's a good dog, but he goes absolutely bonkers around other dogs. I've read dog training books and implemented their strategies with a high success rate but this is still an issue he has. He's great around other people and he's not aggressive around dogs but he just absolutely loses it. I plan on hiring a trainer soon.
    If he's not dog aggressive hes probably dying for a friend to play with, get another dog (they are pack animals after all) or potentially try getting a lot more physical with him when playing so he has an outlet.

    I guess that's a slippery slope, we don't want to have lynch mob or vigilante justice I suppose.
    This is an evidently growing problem in the US with antifa and other groups aka morons.

    From what I understand groups like antifa claim to combat (literal) Nazis and racists. Who would be against that? That's a rhetorical question because the average citizen will not tolerate Nazis in their community. The problem is antifa is ****ing stupid and they tear down businesses of law abiding citizens, including those whom they claim to protect and support.

    In the south there really are racist and violent groups that are quite visible: they advertise their presence. How come antifa doesn't target these folks? Cause they're cowards. Antifa groups will label average and random people as Nazis, claiming someones rhetoric (or lack of towing the line) demonstrates that certain people are 'literal Nazis.' Instead of using roundabout, backward, heavily flawed 'logic', with more holes in it than Swiss cheese, why not target the folks blatantly flying the flag of racism? Target KKK meetings. How about targeting the Outlaws MC? They do not hide who they are and are easily identifiable. Many of them have 'SS' bolts and Swastikas tattooed on them. They openly advertise where and when they have meetings. Anonymous has targeted them in the past, so why not antifa?

    Bahh it's just aggravating. I'm not so much asking questions here as I am venting frustration.

    How about the Galloping Goose MC?... that's WAY scarier imo and H U G E (I know a few members, BLM could probably say a word or two to them, if it meant what the words say, i question that now).....

    I agree, there's some high level psychological manipulation going on that allows individuals to project on (quite often) people and properties that are completely innocent of their main complaints if not the exact same people they supposedly champion.

    I think it's a clever leveraging of the angst that comes from extreme wealth imbalance & an over all feeling of lack of ownership / belonging / representation (community, really..) which not only effects the poor (though they are more apt to see through it) but also effects the disenfranchised middle and upper classes as they see something that's obvious and inclusive "we all hate nazi's right?"

    And I have no clue how to broach this topic with those I feel have fallen victim to it, the emotional tie in is almost symbiotic with their identity... which is sad because it's an identity based on no actual action or works of their own (usually).

    I only have experience with Outlaws. A (small in stature) friend of mine was harassed by some young, fresh outta college kids for wearing a band shirt, "Black Kids." It annoys me cause where he was at the time is often frequented by the Outlaws and that's one of the places where they advertise, typically a flier above the urinal. If you're going to play the tough guy role then you should do this with actual tough guys.

    That incident ended good though, the black bartender kicked their dumb asses out. Ironic how white SJW's feel they have to speak for black people.

    No need to watch this (I don't like how you have to watch 1000 videos every time someone wants to prove a point) but reminds me of South Park:

    actually no, you will (at the best) be canceled or have "peaceful protestors" show up out side your house; but don't worry, this is all the plan of the brains from the NEW Berkley.

    Catholic Priest Threatens Mother of Seven with Arrest
    if She Enters Church without a Mask
    The mother of seven said she wasn't going to play the mask 'game' anymore, referring to mask mandates as 'control tools' and ‘Marxist’
    NORTHBROOK, Illinois, October 27, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – A Catholic parish priest has threatened to call the police on a parishioner if she shows up to church service not wearing a mask.

    Fr. Christopher Gustafson of St. Norbert Parish in Northbrook, Illinois, told Colette O’Regan in an Oct. 15 letter that her stubborn refusal to wear a mask during Mass was “disruptive” and “intransigent.”

    “I find it necessary to enforce prevention of your entering and remaining in the church until you comply with the protocols asked of all, including the simple request of wearing a mask,” he told the 48-year-old mother of seven in the letter obtained by LifeSiteNews.

    The priest went on to tell O’Regan that he would use legal force to keep her out of the church if she refused to wear a mask.

    “As we spoke of recently, your failure to comply has consequences – spiritual, but also sadly, legal. The church is private property, and unless you comply, your continued disruptive and intransigent behavior will prohibit your entry to and remaining on the premises.”

    “Civil authorities have assured me of their readiness to enforce the law in this regard,”
    the priest warned the woman.

    Cook County, where the parish is located, has no mandatory masking policy. The county’s public health guidelines issued in July urge, but do not demand, that “everyone should wear a cloth face cover in public settings and when around people who don’t live in your household, especially when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.” The county allows for exceptions to this policy for children under two and “anyone who has trouble breathing.” The Archdiocese of Chicago, where the parish is located, goes further than the county, telling the faithful in guidelines issued in May that they are “required to wear masks during any services/ceremonies.”

    O’Regan, who had attended Mass daily at the parish for over 21 years, had been eager to get back after weeks of staying home and watching televised Mass during the lockdowns that forced the closure of churches.

    “My heart and soul were yearning for the Eucharist,” she told LifeSiteNews in a telephone interview.

    She began attending daily Mass again after her church reopened, with new protocols in place in response to COVID-19. She wore a mask when she first returned, but had it pulled down below her nose so that she could breathe more easily. She was emboldened to wear it this way when she saw other older parishioners doing the same. It was at this time that Fr. Gustafson and parish staff began to repeatedly request that she wear her mask “properly” – that is, over her nose.

    The priest’s insistence motivated O’Regan to investigate for herself the effectiveness of wearing a mask to fight the virus.

    “So I went home and started googling about these masks,” O’Regan said.

    Online searches about masking to fight COVID reveal that many masks worn by the public are largely ineffective at stopping the transmission of viruses. There are also clearly documented hazards of wearing masks for long periods of time.
