Metro Animal Services Was Nowhere To Be Found

Why, of COURSE Metro Animal Services is refusing to return calls in an emergency situation. Of course they are. Not even returning calls when a media outlet tries to get in touch. Anybody with enough common sense, though, would have used their googler to locate another animal welfare agency to help them out. So one has to wonder whether WAVE’s people have common sense.

    With Mitch McConnell’s stated goal of limiting Pres. Obama to one term, I have often wondered if Republican and/or Tea Party business owners are intentionally suppressing their own hiring in order to fulfill their desire of low employment numbers during this presidential term – of course, to use as leverage in the upcoming election. If a Republican Pres. should then take office, their hiring can resume with a vengeance…
