How To Pick Your Favorite Cutthroat

WE THE PEOPLE . . . ARE FIGURING-IT-OUT:
TODAY IS AMONGST THE WORST DAYS ANNE & I HAVE HAD IN ELEVEN & A HALF YEARS:

Today . . . Is The Day Our Beautiful Stryker Needed To Go To Sleep For An Eternity.

No Animal or Human Being I Have ever Known or Have Ever Met . . .  Exuded the Class, Character, Love & Joy that Stryker Radiated to Anne, Myself and to Everyone who Came into Contact With Stryker.

I’m Writing Today Between Tears . . . Because Life Goes On For The Living – May God Bless The Memory Of Stryker.

From The Moment Anne Let People In Her Social Media Group Know . . . about Stryker’s Demise – the Phones, Emails & Texts Haven’t Stopped Coming from all Points of North America.

Stryker Was Indeed A Gift From God To Anne & Myself.

BACK TO A DIFFERENT TYPE OF MORBIDITY:

Why Khashoggi? . . . Why Now?

The Biden Administration . . . Or More Precisely, Whomever is Pulling the Strings at the White House, is Throwing Saudi Arabia Under the Bus, to Get at Saudi Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, the De-Facto Saudi King-In-Waiting as soon as his Elderly Father can No Longer Rule “The Kingdom”, Better Known to the West (Mohammed Bin Salman ) as MBS, because of the Murder of Jamal Khashoggi.

In Spite Of All The Western Media Gibberish . . . Khashoggi Was Not A Particularly Nice Guy. And In Spite of the Narrative that Khashoggi was a Journalist, Especially Working for the Washington Post, Khashoggi Was Nothing Of The Sort.

Jamal Khashoggi Was A Pro-Moslem Brotherhood Activist, Who Hated Israel, Donald Trump & Was A Vile Anti-Semite.

So – We can all Forget the Media Drivel about this Supposedly Fine Saudi/American Journalist, who by Media Propaganda was Committed to a Free-Press, Because, after all the Dust Settles, Khashoggi was Nothing More than a LEFTIST Activist Hell-Bent on Destroying Real Freedoms, In-Spite Of All The Propagandist Hype.

How Did Khashoggi Die? I Don’t Know. Who Ordered Khashoggi’s Murder? I Don’t Know. Who Really Killed Jamal Khashoggi? I Don’t Know. Where’s Khashoggi’s Body? I Don’t Know . . . And Neither Do I Care To Know Any Of All The Above.

What I Do Know – Is The Following . . .

Saudi Arabia – Since the Defeat of the Ottoman Empire and the Famed Story of Lawrence-Of-Arabia, has Always Been a Despicable Society, which Was (Is) Self Engorged on Obscene Wealth, Blood & Violence, where the King & Princes of Saudi Arabia have for More than a Century Fed on the Saudi People and all Other People Unfortunate Enough to Tread on Saudi Soil.

But In Recent Years . . . as the World Began to Globalize & Modernize, Saudi Arabia, No Less than Other Arab Gulf States, began to Realize that Saudi Arabia’s Success as a Nation is Tied to the Future & Not to the Past. And as such, Modernity will ALLEVIATE much of the Draconian Misogynist/Moslem Culture, which also Means . . . Trashing The Moslem Brotherhood.

I Don’t Ever See Saudi Arabia Becoming A Fully Western Style Culture. But I Do See A Huge Change On The Ground.

In Terms Of People Saudi Arabia Violated – Khashoggi was No More Important than the Millions of Saudi Women (And Others) who were Bought, Sold & Traded like Chattel. Nor was Khashoggi More Important than the Migrant Workers who Became Indentured Servants (Brutalized Slaves) to the Saudi Wealthy.

Where Was The LEFTIST Outrage For Those Saudi Horrors?

SO WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL?

As For Journalism In Saudi Arabia . . . Freedom Of Expression Was Never Free – Still Isn’t.

So Why is America (The Biden Group) Making a Big Deal About the Death (Murder) of an Arab Activist with a Pen – Who Was Not A Cup Of Tea To Freedom?

It’s Because the American LEFTIST Insiders do Not Want to See a United Group of Oil Rich Arab Gulf States so Closely Aligned with Each Other . . . And Certainly Not With Israel.

In Spite Of All The Propaganda . . . Biden & The LEFT Are Not The Friends To Israel As They Portray For Public Consumption.

THE CONSEQUENCES OF “TRUMP’S” ABRAHAM ACCORDS:

I & Many Others Like Me Have Written For Years . . . Many Years, that if Israel and the Arab States ever get Together, with Israeli Technology & Gulf Wealth, the Middle East will Become one of the Most Consequential Regions on the Planet, which would Also Become Perhaps the Greatest Competitor to the Chinese, Russians, Europeans & Big Globalized American Businesses.

NO WARS – NO GUNS – NO BULLETS:

And If Middle Eastern Countries Including Israel, Actually Proceed with a NATO Type Alliance . . . Where Would that Leave the American, Russian, Chinese & European Military Supply Establishments?

If The American LEFT Is So Concerned About The Murder Of Just One Man . . . Why Not The Murder Of Millions?

Why Not the Chinese Concentration Camps? Why Not the Plight of the Chinese Uyghurs? Why Not the Crushing of the Falun Gong? Why Not the Violent Chinese Invasion of Hong Kong? Why Not the Threats Against Taiwan? Why Not The Millions of Dead People Worldwide from the China Virus?

And Why Not The Obscene Injustices & Threats Of The Iranian Mullahs?

As the Tyrannical Globalist/Communist/Elitist One World Government Does all it Can to Achieve their Machiavellian Goals, they Need to Create Heroes & Villains . . . It’s Up to all of Us to Discern which Amongst of the Propagandized Global LEFT are the Heroes & Which are the Villains.

WE THE PEOPLE . . . ARE FIGURING-IT-OUT:

What Is Happening In America & Worldwide Will Come To A Climax Much Sooner Rather Than Later.

Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov

  • So very sorry to hear about Stryker. My wife and I for decades have rescued dogs and to date we’ve had to let go of eight. It tears your heart.

    Jim Tyas, Condor, Alberta, Canada
  • Condolences an the lost of your beloved pet/family member. Just like BLM doesn’t care about the Black family who depended on the local store that the burned down. Ideology gets in the way of humanity. Unfortunately, it looks like this disease of ideology is infecting Old Uncle Joe and his demise will be welcomed by many.

  • I too have just learned about Stryker. It makes me very sad. It wasn’t so long ago that you had to say goodbye to April the cat. As an animal lover myself it’s not hard for me to share your grief.

  • Sorry to hear of your loss…losing a family member is always difficult…may he RIP!

  • Howard I am so saddened reading about your beloved Stryker. Most times our furry family members are more loyal than some human family members, and certainly more human and compassionate than lots of people who infest our society these days. My sincere condolences to both you and Anne.

    Graham Inskip, Oakhurst, Queensland, AUnited Statestralia
  • I offer my condolences to you and Anne for your loss. Obviously, I didn’t know Stryker, but I enjoyed reading him and your adventures together. I grieve with you.

    James Edison, Temple Hills, Maryland,
  • So sorry to hear about Stryker, and on my birthday. You only recently lost April the cat and now Stryker. May they rest in peace on the Rainbow Bridge where you and they will reunite someday. God bless you and Anne at this sad time.

    Alondra Labute, London Ontario, ,
  • Howard, I grieve with you and Anne. We’ve lost three dogs and it was never easy. Nothing replaces the love we received from our pets. The hole in our hearts was only healed when we rescued (from a puppy protection program in a Virginia prison) the doggie we have now. I have tears for you. Sending you and Anne love and understanding. Thank you both for all you do.

    Beverly Coleman, Wilmette, Illinois, United States
  • The hardest part of owning a dog is saying goodbye. I feel your pain from past experience and the not too distant future as both my guys are 15 years old. As for the rest. I am having difficulty being positive about the idiots in charge and those waiting in the wings. But, I am a fan. Keep up the good work and drive safely on your way home.

    James Dean, Oakville Ontario, ,
  • So sorry to hear about Stryker. As a pet owner, I grieve with you. It’s never easy, but you should always remember that you did everything in your power to give Stryker a long and happy life with lots of love. That’s all our wonderful pets ever ask for. I try not to think about it, but I know that one day I am going to have to face a day like that, and I dread it.

    Hal Trachtenberg, DDO (Montreal), Quebec, Canada
  • Sorry to hear about Stryker. Loss of a long time companion is always difficult and will always be a part of you and Anne.

    George Smith, Liberty Hill, Texas, United States
  • My kids gave me a female mix Rottwiller and Lab, Tasha was 10 weeks when I received her. She loved our family, loved walking with us. I trained her so that my daughter at age 4 could walk her on leash and not get pulled around. What was shocking to us was how protective she became of our family, almost to the point of being dangerous to strangers. After 15 years of companionship I had to put her down, hip displacecia and pain. I fill you and Anne, God Bless.

    Azevedo, Star, ID, United States
  • May God bless you and give you peace knowing that Stryker still lives in your hearts and will always be with you. We lost 3 dogs shortly after we purchased our farm because we did not know about ticks. I sat on the ground & cried with them and latter, I lost a cat I loved as well. All are buried here on the farm & I think about them often. May your memories of Stryker bring you joy as well as sadness.

    Charles E Matheson, Sr, Elgin, Texas, USA
  • Dear Anne and Howard, I can still picture Stryker with the Pledge Rider flag/kerchief around his neck. I saw him last year again and he remembered me. He was exceptional just like the two of you. Good that you are busy writing, keep it up. Excellent topic today. Bikerly huggses. Andy

    Kelly Tkachuk, McRae, Alberta,
  • May I add my sincere condolences regarding Stryker to the many I know you are receiving. My wife and I have had to end the lives of many wonderful canine companions over the years. Their love, intelligence and loyalty is long remembered. It’s never easy. We feel deeply sorry and understand your grief completely. May God bless.

  • I am sorry to hear of your loss. Condolences to you and Anne. RIP Stryker.

    Daniel Palladini, Lancaster, Ontario, Canada
  • I am so sorry about Stryker. I had to send a beloved pet to the Rainbows Bridge after 19 years of nothing but love from her. It was in 2005 and I still can’t talk about her without crying. Time isn’t healing that wound. I’m totally sympathetic and send my sincerest condolences.

    Teri Newman, Belleville, Illinois, United States
  • I, like you and yours, have had the privilege of having a pet that meant more than Most People do, to me! (Fine German Shepard, given to me by an Astronaut when he had to transfer to Cape Canaveral-1963) Smartest dog I EVER owned…! Condolences to you and Yours, as I know how you must feel. Like you said, ONE person doesn’t mean that much-when Millions are cast by the wayside – unrecognized – having suffered the same Fate..!

    Mike Renner, Mayflower, Arkansas,
  • I’m very saddened to hear about Stryker’s passing. Our 16-year old dog Gracie passed peacefully in her bed at our home with the help of a wonderful vet a year ago. She was ready, but we weren’t. We left her nose prints on the door that goes to our back deck and don’t know if we will ever clean them off. Bless you and your wife during this sad and difficult time.

    Gary Andresen, Redding, California,
  • I had a dog(s) too. When Hannibal massacred 50,000 Roman soldiers – the sons of Senators, no less, the Senator who conveyed the news of this disaster to the fathers and mothers of Rome had first to eulogize on the passing of his pet dog. He did this at length with tears in his eyes. Then on to the Senate’s business about what to do about Hannibal (AKA Nancy Pelosi) the scourge of Romankind. Such is the love of those we can trust. I think.

    R. Anthony Crane, Beaconsfield, Quebec, Canada
  • Along with the great joys of pet ownership always comes one of the saddest; their passing. Luckily that is hugely outweighed by all of the fantastic memories and knowing they are at peace. My heart goes out to you and Anne.

    Jim Pope, Phoenix, Arizona,
  • So sorry to hear about your loss Howard and Ann.

    John Loosdrecht, Harrison Hot Springs, British Columbia, Canada
  • We share the same passions for Dogs and Horses with whom we bond like family. I saw you and Anne with Stryker, a magnificant, beautiful Alsation, or German Shepard. I feel the pain you feel at the loss of a true and loyal friend.

    Ken Davies, Cornwall, Ontario,
  • So sorry to hear about your loss. Stryker was a member of your family and he will be sorely missed but will always be in your hearts.

    Sharon Baboushkin, Pierrefonds, Quebec, Canada
  • My heart aches for you both in your loss. It truly is almost like losing a child. As for the Middle East situation and the puppet master over Biden, I agree.

    Patricia Robinson, Waynesboro, VA,
  • Howard and Anne, our deepest condolences for the loss of Stryker, we all share your pain. God bless.

    Zafi Gamlieli, Scottsdale, Arizona,
  • Unless one has experienced the loss of a pet, it cannot be TRULY understood.What helped us to TRY to overcome the LOSS of our last pet [14-year Shih-Tzu] was to immediately [within 1 mo.] get another one.It helped us to alleviate SOME of our PAIN. Our past pets have not been forgotten, however.We could all relate to STRYKER & APRIL when you wrote about them.Whatever plans, if any, which you might have to seek another pet, I wish you the best of LUCK! You both WILL make the right decision. AMEN!

    PAULINE M DEMERS, Woonsocket, RI -,
  • Sorry for your loss, my condolences. Are you planning on starting fresh with a new pet friend or was this the last time because age is becoming an issue that shouldn’t because you and Anne will live at least to 100 years old. Now, why no answers to all of your questions from the left? Because it is the LEFT and they only answer to themselves.

    Robert Daigneault, Laval, Quebec, Canada
  • Please accept my deepest condolences on the loss of your beloved Stryker. The one and only fault dogs have is their short lifetime. They are truely our best friends and companions. I know you gave Stryker the best life possible and remember the good times you and Anne spent together with him. I have been through the pain of loosing a canine family member too many times myself. The consolation for me is opening my home to another beautiful dog.

    Lawrence Kalman, Montreal QC, ,
  • Very sorry for your loss…They joy and companionship our pets give is truly a gift from God… We witness an example of His pure love through them. Enjoy the memories…. Another angel will come one day…..

    Mack Karnes, Pewaukee, WI, United States
  • The only thing that makes losing a pet bearable is the wonderful memories. Stryker will always be in your memories. Pets are the most loyal companion you can ever have and they love you unconditionally. God Bless You both in this time of grief.

  • So sorry to hear of your loss. No truer friend can be had than a DOG (Spell it backwards) We lost our companion of 17 years, several years ago and his name lives in our home daily. You will never lose the ,memories. RIP Stryker.

    R.E.Ted Ross, Miramichi, N.B., 44, Canada
  • I’m very sorry to hear about your loss of Stryker. In the two times I have met your family here in Austin, I could tell that Stryker was a well-cared for dog and he was truly loved by you and Anne. RIP, Stryker!

    Chuck Yarling, Austin, Texas, United States
  • So sorry to hear of the loss of Stryker. My pup will be 15 in August and having trouble now with her legs. I get so attached to our pets and know how much you and Anne loved all of yours. Can’t wait for OBiden’s press conference. Wonder how many questions he will be asked by unsolicited reporters. Stay safe.

    Marie Quale, Shapleigh, ME, United States
  • May I offer you and Anne my condolences on your loss of Stryker. It is never easy when we have to say goodbye to our beloved fur babies.

    Traci Bell, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, United States
  • My heart goes out to you and Anne in the lost of your beloved darling Stryker. He will be waiting for you both as one day your lives with end on the planet as well with such joy in his heart to see you both once again. That and your loving April will be there for you both. They both will be there with hugs and kisses for you both. For now know they are at peace from hurt in their bodies. They are happy and running in joy. Be happy for them. Blessed you both were to have them RIP dear beloved one

    Jacquline Turley, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, United States
  • The 43 comments that precede mine reveal the depth of the humanity that is shared by your readers. I join them in extending my heartfelt condolence to you and Anne. We said goodbye to Patton in 1990, Duke in 1997, Rocky in 2006 and Tiger in 2013. Now we have Lady, a much-loved and loving member of the family. I still cry when I think about the beloved pets that brought so much joy into our lives. Needless to say, I know the sadness that you and Anne are feeling at this moment. RIP, Stryker.

    Barry Jackson, St. Lazare, Quebec, Canada
  • I am so sad for you and Anne re the loss of Stryker…. It is so difficult!

    Marilyn Relva-Papcun, Torrington, Connecticut, United States
  • Oh, I only read the first line of this a minute ago, and I have tears in my eyes. I know how you loved that dog so much. I am thinking what a blessed dog to have two people who loved him so much, and also how blessed you were to have such a wonderful animal to love. I am so sorry.

    Patricia Quinlivan, CHEYENNE, WY, United States
  • So sorry for your loss, be comforted knowing you and Anne gave him the best life.

    Linda Timmes, Queen Creek, Arizona, United States
  • Howard, it is with great sorrow that I read your announcement of Stryker’s demise. We all have to face this situation because we love our pets so much. I have not had another dog after having to put down our beloved Sandy, German shepherd, who came to us when she was 6 weeks old and lived until just about her fifteenth year. I could not go through the suffering of having to put another pet down. My sister has four horses and three donkeys as pets and says that the donkeys are much more loving

    Ben Ostrovsky, Miami Lakes, Florida, United States
  • Stryker is now gone and I wanted to tell you that I am sorry. No one can fully understand how much a dog can take away with him. Somehow you ,will find that the memories will stay alive– both in yourself and with other Strykers to come. I suspect you will find a lot of him somewhere else, I, for one, think our old dogs know that and approve. That’s what helps so much to keep things bearable. Somewhere you’ll find another Stryker to take care of you. I hope it’s soon.

    Pat Neuhaus, Mt Pleasant, SC,
  • I just lost my cat Boots last week, and have been grieving for a month when I knew he was going to leave me. I was cleaning up footprints on the floor but can do nothing about the foot prints still on my heart. So sorry that you lost your beloved Stryker. There is a Scripture that HINTS that they will be in the Resurrection…PS 104:29 and 30. I am praying for you both in your grief, too. I am holding back tears.

    Hope Wozniak, Cleves, OH,
  • Hugs and prayers for u and Anne. RIP Stryker.

    Anne Ladouceur, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
  • Howard: thank you for the facts on Jamal Khashoggi and what is really going on with Saudi Arabia and the middle east. My sincere condolences to you and Anne on the loss of Stryker. There is NOTHING in this world like the love of a pet. And like some of your commenters above, I too, hope to see my beloved pets in the afterlife.

    Karen McKim-Altman, Beaverton, Oregon, United States
  • Sending my deepest condolences to you and Anne in the loss of your Stryker. He was deeply loved and may he rest in peace. We lost our Joshua (chiweiner)mix of Dashshound & Chihuahau and lived to be nineteen and half and died peaceably in his sleep. He was quite a protector also. I’ve been in ill health, although read all your great editorials. Card and check to follow in mail. I haven’t forgotten you!

    Shirley Temple, Surprise, Arizona, United States
  • I loved seeing your pics of Stryker. Wish U’d have included one again!!!
