LA Times says Ron Paul hates puppies!

Apparently Ron Paul wants puppies to be jobless and homeless because he would abolish the TSA. On the upside, its seems to be a satirical piece that is poking fun at the TSA and its defenders rather than Paul.

Puppies are cute. Have you considered beaver capabilities?

      THE GALAXY, January 1871

      "DOGGEREL" BY MARK TWAIN

While up the river I heard the following story, showing how an animal can rise when necessary superior to its nature:

"You see," said the narrator, "the beaver took to the water and the dog was after him. First the beaver was ahead and then the dog. It was tuck and nip whether the dog would catch the beaver, and nuck and tip whether the beaver would catch the dog. Finally the beaver got across the river and the dog had almost caught him, when, phit! up the beaver skun up a tree."

"But," said a bystander, "beavers can't climb trees."

"A beaver can't climb a tree? By gosh, he had to climb a tree, the dog was a crowdin' him so!"

he is playing us stupid...

He doesn't give a crap about us. Look up his articles from last campaign. I remember him clearly. He took cheap shots at Ron in 07.

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul

It's a good article because

It's a good article because it quotes Ron Paul's excellent recent statement on the TSA. Humor can be quite effective also.

A joke

Ofcourse the author of the piece is only kidding, but it's sad that MSM hasn't been acting all that differently some may even be confused to if this article is serious. Oh well, let's continue pushing for Ron Paul. Door 2 Door, calling radio shows, etc.

I tried to comment, but couldn't get logged in.

maybe one of you can post this:

The puppies will be fine. When the IRS is eliminated, we can feed all those unemployable scum to the puppies & we'll all live happily ever after.

LOVE YOU, RON PAUL!!!!

Can't believe a writer for the LA Times got this stupid article by the editor.

Some good comments too!

Kudos to Kenny Clark..hadn't read this one yet..

I'll take a puppy

I wonder if we could find 499 people willing to give one of these unemployed puppies a home when the TSA is shut down. Maybe a facebook group is in order.

Yes I get that it's satire,

Yes I get that it's satire, but I think this is a fun response.

I think it's great

I can just imagine the name of the site and the set up..haha Perhaps there could be one for all the molestors to find new jobs in fondling people.

EDIT: I've got it! They could all go to work at the new local theaters that have "Feel-o-Rama" or "Feel-o-Vision"..from Kentucky Fried Movie... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TCq_nzlou0Q

Nice idea. How to get people who don't like Ron Paul to read..

a story about him? This is the way. They would initially believe that it was a slam piece when in reality it does just the opposite while slamming the TSA.

Jack Hunter would get a chuckle while reading this LA Times story.

Exactly

A little weird at first until you realize it's satire. I'm used to The Onion, but seeing something like that on a mainstream site caught me off guard. Loved it though!

Ron Paul Loves Dogs

I find that this sort of "news" as far as attempting to bring negative views on Ron Paul is LAUGHABLE.

We want our families and others to be COMFORTABLE flying around without getting a sex ed class while waiting in line.

Ron Paul or Bust

The author to me seems to be

The author to me seems to be a more pro- Ron Paul writer. At least going from his other articles.

This is a headline grabber that will make you think of the ridiculous excuses the TSA would use if they were to be canned. Great discussion starter.

They'll try anything

next they'll say he's against lolcats.

-quiet engineer

Okay I am convinced!

Please give the jobs back to the Gestapo and spare the puppies!

HAHAAA That is a GREAT article!

Great satirical piece that puts Ron Paul's name out there as the champion who would dismantle the TSA while giving us something to laugh at. It's hard enough to discuss the TSA and get a good laugh about it. Hell, who wouldn't be willing to help find homes for those 500 puppies if it meant the end of the TSA goons?

Making fun of BOTH

This article is clearly making fun of both the TSA and Ron Paul supporters. But who cares --- it's funny! Everyone needs to lighten up. I know we're engaged in serious business here but we need to be able to laugh at ourselves. Otherwise we just become caricatures! Peace!

SO what ?

I hate puppies too. Ain't they SO cute ? Yea, but dumber than snake sh--. Apparently LA times is acting like a puppy mill.

But I do like dogs. You know, those animals that can use their brain.

I am sure LA Times is reading Daily Paul

I mentioned 500 TSA puppies within this article:

Please don't go bash the article

For some reason people aren't getting that the article is satire and are posting basically "Shut up, Ron Paul doesn't hate puppies, you media whores!" That was an exaggeration, but we should try to not appear like we are illiterate. Please and thanks!

...and LA Times likes

...and LA Times likes toadstools>>>

Thanks

posting on Twitter right away.

Yeah oh boy, Ron Paul wants to shrink the size of government....

That means he's going to put all the U.S Postal workers out of a job!!!!!

That is according to the lying, backwards brain lacking monopoly media.

We got to stop Ron Paul!

He's going to put the cops out of business because he supports getting rid of the Federal Police Union.

Oh wait, uh, the Police, many of them sheriffs also support getting rid of the Police Union.

Oh darn, he must be someone who's going to allow BAYER pharmaceutical to run off the charts & poison everybody!!

After all, he said he'd get rid of that regulatory agency.

Obama our dear leader needs to save us, right now!!
We need a TSA and Federal monopoly squad called the Real Estate Union to regulate all the homes we buy & insurance.

After all, poor people will all be left out on the street and the military won't have any jobs if its Ron Paul up there. That is exactly how the media sees it!!!

lol I was all over this

lol I was all over this article's comment section. Im "Herman Munster"
