Boks has a new post on his blog, claiming fewer animals are dying in his shelters than last year. He says animals but he only mentions the numbers for cats and dogs. He does not mention the 600 other animals that died in August, who are not dogs and cats. They are sentient beings just as deserving of life.
Then he said a whopper:
"Ed Boks has never claimed to be the biggest or the best, but he does like to boast about the employees, volunteers and rescue partners of LA Animal Services."
It was really difficult to pick my jaw off the ground after I read that he never claimed to be the biggest or best. He was caught last month saying LAAS was the biggest pet adoption agency in the country, and even got a big smile and pat on the butt from Villaraigosa until the demented Mayeda claimed she was the biggest.
So, a conversation I had:
How can anyone rebut a liar if no one cares? We have torn apart every assertion he has made during the last 6 months, and his whoppers just get bigger and bigger and more complex every month. No one believes anything Boks says, including Blackman and Bickhart; but for now are doing nothing. Unless Council hears it often enough, nothing will happen.
Reply: Boks could say he turned dog shit into gold and the Mayor would go "bravo!" and have a press conference. This is frustrating. I understand where the ALF get their motivation for direct action. You do your research to show that he's not doing a good job, send it to the right people and nothing happens. In fact, the worse Boks does, the more praise he gets.
By the way, I keep getting comments from Naysayer on almost a daily basis claiming she is not Irene Ponce. But hon, if you are not she, why are you protesting so much? I had let the whole subject drop. You haven't.
