1. Ken Burns: Baseball series

Ken Burns Baseball Series

From PBS – The first inning tells the story of baseball’s rise, in only one generation, from a gentleman’s hobby to a national sport played and watched by millions. Viewers meet the first baseball magnate, Albert Goodwill Spalding; explore the game’s first gambling scandal; see the first attempts by women to play the game in the 1860’s; witness the first attempt by ball players to unionize; and learn how the first black professionals were hounded out of the game in the “Jim Crow” 1880’s. Audiences also encounter the…

To know what is right and not do it is the worst cowardice. — Confucius

** BLM & Welfare Ranchers, Horses & Taxpayers! **
~ “We demand Wild Horses be placed back onto Public Lands” ~

HERE IS WHAT I FAVOR — Whether it be right now, or wafting for the new stream of incoming and reelected legislators — Due to the rapid increase of the Bureau of Land Management appeasing not even 1% of the taxpaying Public, in truth ignoring 99% of the taxpaying American, and mismanaging America’s Public Lands so incompetently and badly, and within such a narrow scope, We as Americans, and I speak for many, Demand the Following:

1. We demand Wild Horses be placed back onto Public Lands;

2. We demand a discontinuance of what is termed, and classified as Welfare Ranching, or ranchers who hold Public Lands Grazing Permits, their subsidies to be cut-off…

Letter to BLM’s Chief of Wild Horse & Burro Program & BLM’s failure to manage our wild herds on federal public lands

Straight from the Horse's Heart

We are publicly posting this letter that Grandma Gregg sent to Joan Guilfoyle, Neil Kornze, Ed Roberson and Sally Spencer:

Joan Guilfoyle, Division Chief
Division of Wild Horses and Burros
20 M Street, S.E.
Washington, DC

I strongly oppose the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) plan to send 100 federally protected wild burros—at taxpayer expense—to Guatemala, where they would become working animals.  Once outside the U.S., the fates of the burros would be unknown – forever.

This idea flies in the face of the BLM’s legal mandate to care for and protect these cultural treasures here on U.S. soil.  It is not only cruel and a waste of resources—it also fails to address the ugly reality that led to this misguided schemethe BLM’s wholesale failure to manage our wild herds on federal public lands.

As for BLM’s Guatemala proposal:

First off,the Guatemalans will slaughter some (and eventually all) and…

Help Save the 189 American Wild Burros from being sent to Guatemala

Straight from the Horse's Heart

News Flash from the Equine Welfare Alliance

As many of you are aware, the BLM was going to send 189 burros to Guatemala after removing them from their homes. There is an effort underway to keep the Guatemala 189 burros in the US. At last count, only 25 remain without homes. We bring this to your attention because our president, John Holland, will be the proud owner of one of the burros. John has been heartbroken since he lost Selina (pictured above) so we are trying to help with the efforts in Selina’s memory.

For more information on adopting a burro and the BLM adoption paperwork, visit the facebook page here or contact Elaine Nash, holdyourhorses@aol.com.   

Please share and help turn this into the Guatemala 0.

‘American Horror Story’: Twisty the Clown actor John Carroll Lynch is scary good

Hero Complex - movies, comics, pop culture - Los Angeles Times

[lat-gallery height=”500″]

When “American Horror Story” creator Ryan Murphy first contacted actor John Carroll Lynch about a possible role on the fourth season of his gleefully deranged hit, he was upfront about his aims for a new character, a silent, grinning killer straight out of a child’s nightmare.

“He described it in a way that I understood it to be somebody calling me up and going, ‘We’d like you to play my version of the Phantom of the Opera,’ ” Lynch recalled recently. “He said he wanted to create the most terrifying clown in the history of television.”

By all accounts, he succeeded. Lynch’s Twisty the Clown has become the chief talking point of “American Horror Story: Freak Show,” quite an achievement considering Murphy stocked the latest season of his Emmy-winning anthology series with conjoined twins, a bearded Kathy Bates and a three-breasted hermaphrodite played by Angela Bassett.
