Blog Concerns

I've received some feedback regarding the blog, that seems to have irritated or may even have offended some of you. I DO NOT APOLOGIZE! The material in question is something of which, I as an individual have little to no control over, however it is something that means a lot to me, so I share the information. I will elaborate on why it means so much, and why you too should have some concern.

In regards to the Population of Denmark, a few of you have raised concerns about this, but not in a positive or proactive manner. I have received statements just simply asking: Why do you post this? Are you trying to be internationally weird? This has no bearing on me, why do you bring it up???

Polar Bears. The Polar Bear is the answer, right now the U.S. Government is researching on whether or not to add the Polar Bear to the Endangered Species Act. They come to this conclusion based on several factors, one of which being the population of the Polar Bear. Currently, as of this posting the Polar Bear worldwide population is roughly 25,000. The total bear population* is 575,000, making the Polar Bear roughly 4.35% of the total bear population worldwide. Alarming yes, the Polar Bear makes up less than 5% of the total bear population*, clearly action needs to be taken.

Now I come back to the Danish. As of this posting, their population ranks at 5.5 million (rounded up). The total world population is 6.6 Billion (rounded up). The Danish make for only .083% of the total world population. My friends, this is a travesty! How can we, living in the age of the Cyberspace, be able to allow this to happen?!? Clearly I move that the population of Denmark be watched on continual basis, and placing the Danish on the Endangered Species list. Could it be due to global warming or environment changes? Is it due to the financial crisis being felt around the world? Further study needs to happen. I will do my part, by posting this beloved member of our worldwide self on my blogsite. Please help the Danish.

* Total Bear Population in regards to the "Big Three": Brown, Black and Polar Bears. Not taking into account Koala, Panda, Bear Markets, Baloo, Winnie, or other types of Bears unless they be of the "Big Three".

I think you're making it all up. I have never seen a polar bear or a Dane.
Shame on you for making up these facts and figures in order to promote your right-wing agenda.
Bring me the head of a Dane and/or a polar bear and you may sit at my table!

Wow, getting a look inside your head this way is fascinating. Where do you come up with this stuff??

It's a sad state really, when one has to defend the integrity of a race of people. It's a heavy burden. Steve doesn't believe in Polar Bears or Danes. I don't know what dogs have to do with it, but Steve decided to include them too.

Monica - I wish I were the only one who came up with this stuff. But the facts, and numbers don't lie. The problem is there whether I bring it up or not.

Sometimes I feel like just giving up, and having a bear claw danish. But then I think, what would Thor do?

You're a heavy burden. So there!

On the other hand, rather than wasting precious time and resources (which could be better served in annexing the Yukon Territory and making it an part of Montana) I say that we let the Danish slowly become first irrelevant and then extinct. I give them 5..6 months tops. Besides, with the Danish gone, Germany can have some room to really stretch out:)

Interesting point, Lori B. By saving the Danish, are we encroaching on the rights of the Germans?
