Stormy, I wanted to add, having these thoughts are reflected from your person onto you the pet, is it not? I have found that our Pets feel our emotions through association and memory, we feel sad, anger, remorse, frustration, so does our pets since human project, even in the smallest ways our feeling to animals, we project to others (humans) through our actions that is why while hiking in the Mountain's, mountain lions and bears that attack feel our projection of fear as their prey does, these emotions are confusing and often get us killed or injured even with domestic animals (pets) of others they are aggressive due to our emotional projections (feelings) of fear of them. I have witnessed other peoples pets start out aggressive or hostile around me but quickly turn calm and friendly due to my suppression of personal or experienced fears, this I do consciously when I hike, so to project a guarded yet strong emotion but not hostile or predator-like emotion. This thought process has served me well in the wild and even with semi-domestic animals where they are the protectors of the domain (Guard Dog). Just thought I would add this tidbit of personal experience.

The Mafioso, has been using the Gang element for well over 50 years as young muscle and gullible fall-guys for low-level and inoculate operations. For a time MS-13 were the rulers, that many were ex-patriots of the fallen El Salvadorian Government and illegal aliens were actually MS-13 escapees coming into the USA to fill the orders for drugs and money back in the home Country but after ICE 's last major push to get them out and under Anti-racketeering laws, the Mexican Mafia has been biding their time and building their membership with local talent. Small or young Gangs are excellent breeding-grounds for Mafia membership, get them young and impressionable and they will serve till they die; whether in Prison or on the street. I remember that they (MM) use to recruit crips and bloods from the Gangs through the Prison system, guess Santa Bruta is now a fresh for the recruiting...

I lost faith in the American Voting system long ago and now resist all attempts to be a part of this failed system of purchased candidate for office program, since I lack the $1M in funds to buy a seat in Congress or any other Government level of politicking. It does not surprise me that as time goes by, the American public looses faith in all levels of Government especially in those who constantly fail us in Leadership and thus what does it really matter, we little people can't buy support or quality leadership so why even try? We are constantly reminded that our options are always the less of the two Evils (scumbags), who are presented by the only parties the Mule and the Elephant and no other ever comes forward unless they love public ridicule and personal defamation from either of those two terror groups (parties). My vote is special and as of the last 13 years, I have yet to find a lowly worthy candidate let alone a worthy candidate to present my sacred vote to but Americans who drink the Kool-Aid of the Government Machine brainlessly give their sacred vote away to the most smooth talking Puppet that either Party offers up to the sheep we call American Public. Remember America, you elected the last two worms to destroy our Country (the few that did vote), the last from your Historical Guilt so you have only yourself to blame for this Countries Failure.

As a First Responder during the Bush era, I was assigned a respirator mask for NBC Attacks at NRO, HLS, NGA and now at DIA. I wore a surgical mask during the Winter months at both NGA and DIA due to the Overseas TDY's that come back with all kinds of foreign Flues that you can only get from overseas travel, last year I was down for two weeks with an Asian Flu which you could only get if you visited China Prime, sometimes a mask worn around others is the way to stay healthy; people are dirty!

An enterprising individual could offer for a fee, to relieve the Cruise Ships of their waste with a ship outfitted with waste removal and treatment components? I'm just saying, if there were a way to assist rather than complain over this issue and financially benefit from it also.

"Detectives believe possible motives could be that the victim had stolen property from the suspects or had cooperated with police in the past", sounds like Retaliation and Witness Tampering.

Ah, the Body count must rise before action is taken and change occurs. This is typical of all Government actions for Citizen safety. An intersection needs a traffic light, the count of deaths to get a 'Yield' sign must be this high, a Stop sign, this High, and so forth, it justifies spending the Money to see change occur.

Thank you for the reminder of a Hike on a warm weekend back in the late 80's. I was heading to the Jesuit Trail connector from the Rattlesnake trail when I came around a corner, there in front of me was an Adult Mountain lion. I went for my weapon (slowly) but for some strange reason returned my hand to my side (without the 9mm). I spoke to the lion in a soft and casual manner that I was just a visitor who meant no harm and wanted no trouble, but wanted to go deeper into the Mountains. The Cat seemed to understand and we both moved (Face to Face) around each other, both backed up slowly until the Cat turned to leave, I again spoke softly and casual and said "Thank you, friend". The Cat yawned and lifted its paw, brushing it along the ground, as if to say your welcome and don't mention it. We both left alive and experienced from the encounter, I will never forget that moment and has happened with several other wild animals since with never the feeling of fear, just knowing.
