About My Blog.

Welcome! This is "Catatonic Digressions."
Most readers don't understand my blog's title. It's an old inside joke from a forum long gone. I was going to change it, but since it's been "confusing" for so long, I decided to leave it. Don't worry about what it means, the content of the blog is what matters...or not

Unfortunately, my blog isn't what I set out for it to be. A sick woman in Orleans, MA began stalking me in 2007 on Myspace. Since that time, this woman obsessed over me to the point of having the police come to her home and threaten to confiscate her laptop. She is a racist and anti-Semite.I could no longer blog freely, knowing this nutbag was just going to take the photos I'd post and put them on a child exploitation website.

This site is only up for the information it has that others might need to know about. That information is about "Seal Shepherd" aka Michael McDade, Kat McAboy aka Marilyn McAboy and Veronika Hompo, a self-proclaimed Nazi.

I'm a real person. I'm real and I don't pretend to be someone I'm not. After years of putting up with online abuse by manipulative, pathological liars, attention whores or narcissists, I've had it. Don't bother me with pathetic drama. I have no time for these types of people and their need to absorb others' time and attention.

This blog is no longer used. I've retired it for the most part unless something very important comes up.

Please, join Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, and follow them on Twitter and Facebook.

#SAVE THE GALGOS (Greyhound Dogs)

Page Liked · March 28 · Edited · 

Every year, fifty thousand greyhound dogs called Galgos are tortured and killed in Spain.

Subjected to horrific pain, starved, burned with fire and acid, buried or skinned alive, dragged to death behind automobiles, hung from trees with just the tips of their paws touching the ground in what the Galgueros (hunters) call the piano dance because they are forced to struggle as they are slowly hung.

All of this cruelty and death is exempted from Spanish and European law protecting domestic animals because the deliberate torture and killing of Galgos is considered to be a part of Spanish culture and enshrined in their traditions just like bull-fighting.
The Galgos are greyhounds and in Spain they are used for hunting and for racing.

Around the world these dogs have been abused for hunting and racing but in Spain there is a bizarrely cruel difference. You see in Spain if the dogs do not perform up to the expectations of their owners, they are intentionally tortured and killed, usually by hanging. This is done to punish and shame the dogs for not living up to the expectations of their owners.

My wife Yana is deeply saddened by the suffering of these gentle dogs, so much so that she has decided to take action to oppose it by becoming an ambassador for Galgos Ethique Europe.

Galgos Ethique Europe was set up to focus attention on this barbarically inhumane treatment of these gentle dogs and for the purpose of rescuing them and finding them homes.

Yana wants to bring this cruelty to the attention of the world and especially to the attention of the European Union Parliament with a demand that European law prohibit the cultural persecution of these gentle dogs.

Between 50,000 and 60,000 galgos are tortured and killed every year in Spain without any pity and with impunity by Spanish hunters (Galgueros). It happens here, in Europe because of the European Parliament that does not want to here about this kind of a "small problem". Please let's spread information about this problem and to finger the Spanish government and the European parliament, to show that we also have power to change, not only them. With one click of your key board you can change the sad fate of these incredible gentle, intelligent and unjustly abused dogs. ‪#‎SAVETHEGALGOS‬
