Comment on firedoglake: Sharkbabe, no need to be embarrassed here. Love goes where it will [matalin anyone?]. If getting pet goats for your partner helps your relationship, goats it is. Then they become dear to us as well. Life is strange and convoluted. Sometimes we get what we want, sometimes we are thwarted at every turn.
You’re way ahead of me in colorfully expressing the essential unfairness of the universe. I deeply believe in a loving God–have had many visions/ESP/spiritual experiences–but sometimes wonder what the **** He/She is thinking. This might not be the exact quote from the Bible altho I refer you to the angry Psalms. Arms too short to box with God. The human condition.
