I believe that the AKC should be stopped from allowing any more dog breeding propaganda until all the animals in the thousands of shelters and rescue centers have been adopted.

The Joint Chiefs and CIA have been misleading presidents into ugly and unnecessary wars for decades. We don't need to keep dropping bombs on hospitals and schools to "help" people who are already oppressed by tyrannical leaders. Find another way to help them.
