Ramblings of a Conservative Cow Doctor by Krayton Kerns, DVM, State Rep. HD 58

Swallow This

When I joined veterinary practice in the early 1980s, we commonly dispensed a dog deworming medication called Anaplex. The medication came in color coded gelatin capsules with their size based on the dog’s weight. As you might expect, little dogs swallowed little pills while big dogs swallowed big pills; a fact which seems so intuitive it wouldn’t merit a mention in a political column, but it does and here is why. The big pills were enormous; as big as a bratwurst. When clients skeptically fingered the biggies and gave me a puzzled look, I explained dogs have a specially designed pharynx enabling them to swallow large objects without choking. With multiple scavengers fighting and feeding on the same carcass in the wild, those who swallow their food whole live longer; bolting food is a survival mechanism. In spite of my amazing lecture about dog swallowing physiology, clients always asked, “You don’t expect Scooter to swallow this do you?” Yes, I did, and this brings me to my point. Even though the human pharynx is designed for speech rather than bolting food, big government activists expect voters to swallow whoppers ten times bigger

than the largest Anaplex capsule. A frightening majority of citizens swallow away never realizing they are ingesting both sides of the same issue, so let’s slow down, chew and taste what they are feeding us. Public service announcements claim the biggest public health threat to America’s poverty class is both starvation and obesity. Regardless which mythical evil the left is battling, the solution is always the same; bigger government. If you swallow the starvation crisis, the solution is government funded school breakfast, lunch, dinner, and now weekend food backpack programs. If you can’t quite choke that down because you are a supporter of the First Lady’s War on Obesity, the answer is still more government through food police stationed in the schools so as to enforce food pyramid rules. I tear up when I think of the compassion the ruling class has for we helpless unwashed too irresponsible to care for ourselves. If the thought a person can starve while dying of obesity related diseases chokes you, then try swallowing this: Man’s carbon emissions are simultaneously causing the earth to get warmer, colder, wetter, drier, and windier.

905 Packer x Sakic

For example, both the drought in California and the record freezing of the Great Lakes are caused by global warming if you believe government sanctioned climatology. In October of 2013, Climate Prediction Center scientists, the self-proclaimed experts at predicting global warming over the next 100 years, released forecasts completely missing the severity of our weather for the next 100 days. Using their own Heidke Skill Score where 100 points equals perfection, while minus 50 equates to the accuracy of monkeys throwing darts, these scientists scored a whopping minus 22. A proper visual would be a government Climate Predictor battling snowy roads in a Chevy Volt emblazoned with a bumper sticker boasting, “At Least I Beat the Monkey!” Voters are expected to swallow the illusion all the world’s weather fluctuations would magically flatten with every day receiving the perfect amount of rain, warmth, breeze and sunshine if we would only institute the carbon tax. Perhaps it is time for a mea culpa. Over my eight year political career I have watched leftists portray voters as ignorant; a population too foolish to make life’s simplest decisions without the direction of the ruling class. I have penned over 400 liberty focused op-ed columns battling the left with logic while they fire back with raw emotional stories of fat people starving on ice bergs inhabited by drowning polar bears all caused by my driving a Ford pickup powered by a V-10 and lighting my house with 100 watt incandescent light bulbs. Perhaps I was wrong. If the voters keep swallowing progressive dogma, they just might be as ignorant as the left says they are.

DEAR DAVE, I’m trying to pay off my credit card and get out of debt. Do you think I should transfer the balance to one with a lower interest rate while I do this? ~Kelsey Dear Kelsey, I’m not against this idea, as long as you understand that you’re not really accomplishing much. All you’re doing is moving money around, and maybe saving a tiny bit on interest. If you were planning on keeping the debt around for 30 years it would become a big deal. But if you’re talking about a few months, just until you get it paid off, it’s not that much money. The problem with balance transfers is that you feel like you took a big step forward when you really didn’t. Lots of times this causes people to lose focus on other things they can do to get out of debt, like picking up an extra job or selling a bunch a crap they don’t want or need. That kind of stuff, along with living on rice and beans and a strict written budget, is 98 percent of the battle when it comes to getting out of debt! ~Dave DEAR DAVE, How can I get credit card companies to stop sending us preapproved offers? My wife continues to sign up for these, and now we have $40,000 in credit card debt. ~Dan

AN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY EMPLOYER

A DRUG FREE WORKPLACE

Dear Dan, Chances are you’ll never get credit card companies to stop sending stuff, but there a few things you can do that might help slow things down. Access your credit bureau report, and opt out of marketing offers. You can also freeze your credit report, and send direct requests to the credit card companies to take you off their mailing lists. I’ve been telling people not to use credit cards for 20 years and, believe it or not, even I get offers in the mail. The more mailing lists you get on, the more your mailbox will fill up with junk mail. If you have magazine subscriptions and things like that, your contact information is circulating all over the place. The next thing I’m going to say may sound cruel, but I really don’t mean it that way. You don’t have a junk mail problem, Dan. You have a relationship problem. You two are not on the same page about money. Either she doesn’t feel like you two have enough money, and she’s resorting to credit cards for this reason, or she does this because she’s a spoiled brat who thinks she should always have what she wants when she wants it. Her behavior is destroying your financial lives and driving a wedge between you. My advice would be to sit down and have a gentle, loving talk with her about all this. Try to find out why she feels the need to have all these credit cards, and explain that you’re worried about what it’s doing to your marriage and your finances. That may mean having to spend some time with a marriage counselor, but that’s okay, too. There’s no reason to be ashamed of something like that. The truth is, most of us who have been married more than 20 minutes could use a little help in that area of our lives! ~Dave For Sale: Available now are three residential building lots sold together or separately in the Sleeping Buffalo Acres of Saco. All lots have electricity nearby and a proposed rural water district is being formed. Lots 24-26 Asking $18,000 to $20,000 (102KG6) 3-I

TWO MISCHIEVOUS BROTHERS Two little boys, ages 8 and 10, were excessively mischievous. They were always getting into trouble, and their parents knew if any mischief occurred in their town, the two boys were probably involved. The boys’ mother heard that a preacher in town had been successful in disciplining children, so she asked if he would speak with her boys. The preacher agreed, but he asked to see them individually. The mother sent the 8-year-old in the morning, and the older boy was to see the preacher in the afternoon. The preacher, a huge man with a deep booming voice, sat the younger boy down and asked him sternly, “Do you know where God is, son?” The boy made no response, sitting there wide-eyed with his mouth hanging open. So the preacher repeated the question in an even sterner tone, “Where is God?” Again, the boy made no attempt to answer. The preacher then shook his finger in the boy’s face and bellowed, “WHERE is GOD?” The boy screamed, bolted from the room, ran directly home, and dove into his closet, slamming the door behind him. When his older brother found him in the closet, he asked, “What happened?” The younger brother, gasping for breath, replied, “We are in BIG trouble this time! GOD is missing, and they think WE did it!”
