    I would like to wage a war on ...

    What would you like to wage a war on?

    For me, I would like to wage a war on irresponsible dog owners.

    Dogs that bark all day when the owner is at work. Check.
    Dogs that bark all night when the owner is gods know where. Check.
    Dogs off leashes. Check.
    Dogs on leashes that are too long. Check.
    Dogs that walk on one side of the footpath, with the owner on the other, and an nice trip line between the two covering the entire carriageway. Check.
    Dog owners that stop on one side of the footpath to talk to some other random dog owner on the other side, with the dogs yapping at each other again in between covering the whole pathway. Check. Pro tip - stop on the same side of the pathway and let people through.
    It's not cute. It's not funny. Control your damn dog.
    So what's your excuse? For running like the devil's chasing you?

    See you in another life, brotha.

    Owners who tie their dogs up outside cafes then ignore them resulting in the dog barking continuously annoying nearby patrons. Check.
    Especially, owners who let dogs off leashes in areas clearly signed as on leash and where there is wildlife present, and do it as soon as nobody can see them. Check check check. 80+% of these people believe their dog would never hurt a fly.

    Plus the big mongrel German Shepherd that attacked when i was giving out election pamphlets for Gough Whitlam Lord in 1977
    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land

    I agree.

    How else would fecal microbiota transplantations occur otherwise ?

    I would have just said irresponsible pet owners. Cat owners are just as bad.

    For sure for every delusional dog owner who believes their dog never chases wildlife there will be a delusional cat owner who believes their cat willingly confines itself to the borders of their property at all times and eats only what they feed it. Despite such work as this showing otherwise:

    Cats are the nuclear bombs of the animal world, they are highly efficient killing machines that destroy native animals. I hate cats.

    As long as you never kill a cat in defence of a native animal!

    Hate is a curious stance to have as a pacifist.

    Feral cats kill 2 billion native animals every year. Hate is the right response.

    They're very good at destroying introduced animals too. As seen on Macquarie Island - when all the cats were removed, rabbit numbers exploded.

    I like cats, but they need to be kept out of bushland. Unfortunately, eradicating feral cats is usually impractical, and a lot of people get very silly about it.
