    It's no different than when we made the same statements about Saddam. This insanity needs to stop, yesterday. But it won't. Look at the destruction we have caused in that part of the world and to what end? Who has benefited? Certainly not Christians or anyone else you would think this country would be sympathetic to. More and more holy sites and historical sites are being destroyed, the disgusting violence and death intensifies making Sherman's march to the sea look like a charity benefit. Just remember, they hate us for our freedoms.

    They know we exist, the term is no longer that obscure. It's a damn shame that these two are on the top of the ticket at a time like this, but they have name recognition and "credibility" in the political world. Ugh. I guess I'll wait and see what their message is going forward but as things stand now there isn't a snowballs chance in hell I'll support this ticket.

    phill4paul - When you "force" them to show you belly, do they do it voluntarily or is there physical manipulation of their body to show belly? If you have to touch them at all in order to achieve submission, then youre fooling yourself and they arent really submitting, just going into a position that youre putting them in to. I think you are fully aware it isnt about controlling the body, but the mind. Showing belling completely voluntarily is only a reflection that the dogs mind is submitting. A truly balanced dog requires nothing more than a light touch, like a tap on a shoulder or a light tug on a leash. If you have to do anything more than a touch, then something else is off in the dogs behavior. During training, such as teaching to sit, a touch should only be used as a guide. Touching a dogs back toward their tail and repeating the word to "sit" creates an association that the word you are using has "something" to do with that part of their body. "Shake" while lightly squeezing a dogs paw helps to create the initial association between the word and that part of their body. I only use a touch to break a dogs focus on something like another dog. Strong pokes are reserved only when a dog is on their way to a "red zone" or "dangerous" behavior. I issue my pokes as strong corrections with a Dominant and Calm expression of my stance, more Dominant than Calm in this case, but both are expressed. Once in a "red zone", there is no type of touch that will break that focus, including hits. Only thing you can do at that point is total restraint and redirect. "Red zone" means that the dog has lost total control over their behavior and does not necessarily indicate the state of mind in every fight. If you and me were to be in a physical brawl, one might misinterpret that as "red zone", but unless one of us hits absolute panic state, despite being in a fight, that isnt "red zone". Red zone is when the dog loses all control of themselves and acts of aggression are not always "red zone". "Red zone" is when a total mauling occurs, not a simple nip or warning bite. In red zone states, get the dog out of the situation so what ever they are reacting to is no longer present, then it is just a matter of time. A good example of a red zone behavior is a person who is terrified of spiders. They see a spider and completely freak out and lose self control. That is when people literally piss their pants, and is a result of all self control. At that point in time, that person can be put into a "time out" which isnt really a "correction" but an opportunity for them to calm down, and is done with a space they can feel safe. Saw a spider outside? Go inside and catch your breath, but no further corrections are necessary because they wont respond as you expect them to. Never ever allow yourself to go into a "red zone" expression of behavior in the presence of a dog, ever. You can immediately destroy their image of you as a Calm Dominant pack leader. What happens there is if they think you dont have self control, they will try to take your place on the food chain and try to establish themselves as dominant over you. That takes quite a while to repair, even from a single incident. I dont think your dog sounds like a "red zone" case. In general, dogs usually want two things, Trust and Respect. It sounds to me like one of those things is missing. Ive met plenty of dogs, so its easy to recognize the combinations of the two. The real goal is to Trust you enough to submit and Respect you enough to obey. If one of those things is not had, then I think you see behavioral issues like you describe. I think what may be missing in the dog's mind is the Trust. Next, it is one thing for them to recognize you as pack leader, but another thing entirely to offer the same Trust and Respect to other members of your "pack". They also have to learn that all other humans are given a higher position of authority than they are. So...

    If I remember right Newman is still young? He's doing what all teenagers do and pushing his limits with you, and he's putting the pup in it's place... If he'd picked up the pup and shook it that would be different than nipping to the point of blood... Dogs are going to find, and fight to keep, their place in the pack. I wouldn't worry much about pups fighting a bit unless it's obviously getting out of hand but Newman bulling up toward you is an issue. You handled it correctly but watch for repeat behavior and escalate your response at the slightest infraction...(Escalate in dog NOT human behavior)

    It could be. I don't know, you are the best judge of that. Probably if they get used to each other a bit more issues like rabbit scent will disappear.

    The most important thing in this all is that you should be calm and decisive. If you're not calm, the dog will take over. You lose. You are the leader, be the leader, the dog will follow. Even the most edgy dogs, the ones owners warn you not to pet, are always nice to me since I'm aware of that. :p But I'm someone who likes to get ambushed by a 150lb mastiff. More than I weigh but it's awesome when they put their paws on your shoulders and lick your face :D. (Gross, but I like it.)

    Put a blanket over it while he's in it. Leave the room. Come back half an hour later. See if he likes to behave in order to get out. Tough love.. I am sure however that a pitt and a jack russle are an ideal combination. Both high energy dogs. Both pretty rough in their behavior generally. I do recommend not using treats in training. They should respect you for who you are and you should be able to reward them by saying they are good dogs. Treats are for exceptional behavior, maybe. But you don't want a dog that won't do anything because the dog damn well knows you currently are not carrying treats.. Not a good strategy IMO. Certainly not necessary.

    In my experience with pittbull type dogs, they don't really feel pain and being forceful with them may even encourage them in a way. The best way to deal with them in my experience is to use your voice and don't act. Be the leader, pitbulls are very good followers. Forcefully making them show their belly is a way to learn them something but I'm not sure if it's the right one. You have to find a 'non-aggressive' way to to snap him out of his focus. It's hard to explain but you have to be the alpha male, if you force a dog on it's back, it may show you are physically stronger and the dog will respect you for that but the dog won't respect you for being the actual authority. You have to show the dog that you decide if they get excited or not. Do you have a bench ? You could simply point at the bench and tell your dog to get in it whenever his behavior gets out of whack, then if he doesn't want to, maybe stop him moving backwards so the only place he can go is into the bench. This will take a while but if you feel like you are deciding what is going on, you've succeeded. You can be forceful and it might work but being decisive and clear works wonders. Don't yell 10 commands after each other. Just once, if no reaction, pause, repeat. If you show you are frustrated, dog wins, you lose. Think about that and you'll be fine. Generally speaking if you're not nervous or overexcited, dogs will figure it out when they are playfighting. But I can't see how they are 'playing' so I'd say trust your own instincts more than my reply but I hope there's something in it for you.

    Right now its clear that statist secular humanism are effectively the law of the land. And ever since the 14th amendment the states are not allowed to do anything different.

    Its impossible for any standard of law to be neutral. That's the ultimate issue. And every idea of freedom that you hold dear, even if it is at some point abused or twisted, ultimately originates in Christianity.
