PETA's Latest Insanity

Thu Jun 18, 2009 5:03 pm

Yes, they are actually critisizing the President for killing-or trying to kill-a fly during an interview!

As a vegetarian I agree with a couple of their views, but this insane. I don't understand why they have to be such media whores all the time (because this is all they're really doing...I really doubt a soul in PETA cared about the welfare of flies before this incident).

I loved Colbert's response to their recent campaign against eating fish. PETA tried to rebrand fish as "sea kittens," under the logic that fish are just as much animals as kittens, but due to their bad image we don't think of fish as such. Colbert commented that PETA was right, and that he was going to stop eating sea kittens. Instead, he'd start eating...cue picture of adorable kitten...land fish! Mmmm...delicious crunchy deep-fried land fish.

He is practicing for a visit to Aus. A talent we need here in summer. Mind he will find the bush flies are a more tricky adversary.

Send the PETA spokesperbody here and we will let her co-exist with bush flies for a while, or better yet, she can have a few march flies take pieces out of her. I will bet she will find it hard to co-exist with a march fly and even more in a couple of days when the maggots hatch.

Good idea. They should put their money where their mouth is....let some volunteers spend couple of nights with a room that has flies, mosquitos, roaches, bedbugs etc etc. Then we'll see who kills who.

Hear, hear! I am all for sanitary conditions at feed lots (such as they can be) but elevating animals to higher status than us is absurd. Scientificly, our bodies are made to process protien in the forms of red meat, fish, poultry and pork. If a religous group decides not to eat one of these, fine. I understand and respect that. I, however, love jambalaya and pulled pork sandwiches and Cuban pork sandwiches.

Besides, these PETA people (save Pam Anderson) look sick all the time. Who wants to be a part of that?

I'd have loved to have been a fly on the wall at the PETA meeting where they came up with this.

I mean, the fly in the ointment is that I'm sure they'd kill a flea if it was biting them, no?

PETA just needs to buzz off, anyway.

My brother married into a vegan family. They are vegan because of their Adventist religion. I have been pondering this for the nearly 10 years they have been married. Her parents are both large. They are always snacking on something. They even take a walk after dinner. I think it has to do with the body processing and storing carbs. That is all they eat. The body has to do something with it and the natural response is store it. That is my thought.

As much as Fox and Republicans hate Obama, even they recognize that PETA is a bunch of freaks. They make fun of PETA as much as the next guy. I think that is the one thing that crosses party lines.

One of the fattest people I know is a vegan. She eats A LOT of junk food. A lot of pre packaged cakes and such don't have any animal products in them so they don't go stale on the shelf.

PETA is nutty. Up here in Michigan they want to buy a surplus lighthouse on Lake Michigan and turn it into an antifishing museum. According to the Detroit Free Pree they plan on handing out stuffed fish to children that say "fish are friends not food" Some worthless PETA nut was on WRJ 760 yesterday morning talking about how fishing is wrong and fish have feelings (and can show love). According to this looney tune fish should be not be used for food or sport fishing.

There is a billboard on I-94 near DTW, just before Inkster road, that has a woman with a chicken on her shoulder and it says "animals are friends not food". Everytime I see that sign it makes me think about getting some chicken for dinner.

All of this talk is making hungry, it is almost lunch time. I'm going to the kitchen and make a ham and cheese sandwhich!
