Girls Just Wanna Have Guns has the story, and it will frighten anyone who hunts. And it should frighten anyone who, like me, does not really hunt, but cares about liberty, and about the very positive things outdoorsmen do for wildlife and the environment.
There is an organized jihad being waged by radical environmental and animal rights activists against hunting, fishing, and trapping. Some of this push is overt, while other efforts are subtle yet equally sinister.
These radical groups hope to substitute natural resource harvesting activities (such as hunting) by humans as the long-standing preferred method of wildlife management, and to instead adopt a new approach incorporating a theoretical but unrealistic natural predator-prey environmental balance.
We all area ware of the “unintended consequences” of so many Liberal ideals. This will be no better I suspect, and the animals would suffer greatly, and if they would suffer so would the environment. Here is more
The details of this extravagant theory were first laid out by Earth First co-founder David Foreman. In his book, Rewilding North America ( http://tiny.cc/hkbkjx ) , he says:
“Specific actions that best meet my criteria for continental-scale conservation are the following:
- Reintroduce carnivores wherever possible
- Reintroduce beavers and other highly interactive species
- Establish species recovery goals for ecologically effective populations
- Generally halt all predator and “pest” control
- Reform wildlife management to adopt a more ecological approach
- Select and design new wilderness areas based on ecological principles
- Protect all large roadless areas on public lands
- Create larger roadless areas in the East
- Remove livestock from much of the public lands
- Reform livestock grazing where it continues
- Prioritize simple soil and gully erosion control
- Prohibit big tree logging
- Develop standards for ecological restoration in wilderness areas
- Remove abandoned and unnecessary livestock fencing
- Restrict all motorized vehicles to designated routes
- Reduce the miles of public lands roads
- Stop bogus R.S. 2477 (highway right-of-way) claims
- Establish landscape permeability as a public land management goal
- Identify and remove or mitigate barriers to wildlife movement
- Encourage ecological management of private, corporate, and tribal lands important for linkages
- Identify private lands that should be acquired on a willing-seller basis
- Restore a natural fire ecology
- Remove destructive, unnecessary dams
- Restore or mimic natural, over-the-bank flooding, where possible
- Establish in-stream flow as a beneficial water use
- Prioritize removal of exotic species that threaten native species and wildlands
- Design networks for climate change . . . .”
For the record, I do not oppose the reintroduction of carnivores to areas where they once resided. I think that would be a good step. The rest of that list, however smacks of radicalism disguised as environmentalism.
Donald Douglas has noticed this trend. By the way, who knew that there were transgender animals, or that they had rights ;)
At London’s Daily Mail, “Former soldier who became animal rights commander is jailed for six years over campaign of terror against animal testing company.”
Here’s a particularly grizzly account at the Times of Zambia, “Animal rights activist jailed for blackmail plot“:
Debbie Vincent, a 52-year-old former soldier who underwent a sex change, was found guilty last month for her part in a conspiracy to blackmail British-based Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS).
Vincent became the public face of Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC) after seven members of the group were jailed for a total of 50 years in 2009 for their role in the campaign.
Members of the group falsely accused HLS staff members of being paedophiles, sent them hoax bombs and sanitary towels claimed to be infected with AIDS, and caused criminal damage to their cars and homes.
In May 2009, activists dug up a grave in Switzerland and removed an urn containing the ashes of the mother of Daniel Vasella, the then-chairman of Swiss pharmaceutical giant Novartis, one of HLS’ suppliers.
Sentencing Vincent at Winchester Crown Court in southeast England, judge Keith Cutler said: “It is difficult for a judge to calculate the repugnance felt by society to such appalling acts.
“Nothing at all could justify such attacks.”
He added: “You express no shred of remorse or condemnation for the incidents of extreme terror and desecration which have been caused.”
A group of Vincent’s supporters held placards outside the court reading “No Excuse for Animal Abuse” and “Against Animal Testing and State Repression”.
Shockingly, people are less than thrilled with this.
WOODLAND HILLS (CBSLA.com) – Parents say they are considering taking PETA to court over an innocent-looking comic handed out to children at Calabash Elementary School in Woodland Hills that contained graphic images of mutilated cows.
Claire Borsheim and many other parents at the Woodland Hills campus were outraged after PETA handed out the pamphlets to their children the same day a baby cow was on campus for a lesson about dairy farming.
The pamphlet appeared to be a cartoon comic and was titled “A Cow’s Life,” but the images inside were horrifying, parents said.
“My 6-year-old daughter was handed one of these comics, saw the insert of the mutilated cow that I ripped away right away, she started flipping through it and saw pictures of baby cows being electrocuted, factory farms with machetes, I mean, just graphically horrifying images for a 6 year old,” Borsheim said.
“The images are pretty graphic,” parent Shawn Belschner said. “They’re of mutilated cows, infected cows, cows being dehorned, cows in bad conditions. I don’t think it’s good for any child.”
The graphic leaflet showing cows being dehorned and cows with infected udders was PETA says is a kid-friendly pamphlet about dairy cows – literature they say is meant to be educational.
Come on take a guess. What would a
rock star self-impressed douche nozzle think was as awful as eating meat? Give up? Well here is your answer
1980′s English rock star Steven Morrissey said in an online interview this week that he doesn’t see a difference between eating meat and pedophilia.
“I see no difference between eating animals and paedophilia (sic),” he said, responding to a question about what’s motivated him to be a vegetarian. “They are both rape, violence, murder.”
Egads! Who says doing drugs will not affect your brain? Here is more from Morrissey
“If I’m introduced to anyone who eats beings, I walk away,” the former frontman for The Smiths continued. Imagine, for example, if you were in a nightclub and someone said to you ‘Hello, I enjoy bloodshed, throat-slitting and the destruction of life,’ well, I doubt if you’d want to exchange phone numbers.”
Donald Douglas has news of PETA’s savage attack on Katy Perry and her breasts. HATERS Gonna HATE!
Animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) recently slammed the use of animals in Perry’s video, which features the 28 year-old singer hanging out with monkeys, elephants and tigers.
“Animals used for entertainment endure horrific cruelty and suffer from extreme confinement and violent training methods,” a PETA spokesman said in a statement. “They often become stressed and anxious when hauled around and forced into unfamiliar or frightening situations.”
I’m sure Ms. Perry’s crew treated the animals well. Can’t folks have a little fun savagery these days?
Just PETA seeking some publicity, I just hope no Ms. Perry’s breasts are OK
Read it and laugh, or shake your head in disbelief
PETA, always adding hilarity to our day…pass the blue cheese dip!
Via Daily Caller:
In its latest campaign to end carnivorism, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has expressed concern that buffalo wings might harm the physical development of the sex organs of male babies.
The radical animal rights group recently sent a letter to Drew Cerza, who runs the Buffalo Wing Festival in Buffalo, New York, asking him to bar pregnant women from taking part in a wing-eating contest which has been held each Labor Day since 2002.
PETA’s associate director of campaigns, Lindsay Rajt, wrote to Cerza saying “consuming poultry while pregnant may lead to birth defects in utero, including smaller-than-average penises for newborn boys.”
PETA, just another tree in the Grove of Low-hanging Blogging Fruit
When the Obama EPA is not spying on cattle and pork ranches with drones, they’re illegally releasing information on livestock producers to far left extremist groups.
The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association and the National Pork Producers are furious after the Obama Environmental Protection Agency illegally gave information on livestock farmers to extremist animal rights groups.
Farm Futures reported:
NCBA and the National Pork Producers Council are both furious with EPA for handing extremist groups illegally gathered data on farmers who operate confined animal feeding operations.
NCBA said early this week it was notified by the EPA that the agency had been collecting information from states on CAFOs. The information was requested by extremist groups, including Earth Justice, the Pew Charitable Trust and the Natural Resources Defense Council through a Freedom of Information Act request and was given to them.
The information released by EPA covers livestock operations in more than 30 states, including many family farmers who feed less than 1,000 head and are not subject to regulation under the Clean Water Act.
“When we reviewed the information submitted by the states and released by EPA, we were alarmed at the detail of the information provided on hard working family farmers and ranchers, family operations including my own,” said NCBA past president J.D. Alexander, a cattle feeder from Pilger, Nebraska.
“It is beyond comprehension to me that with threats to my family from harassment atop bio-security concerns, that EPA would gather this information only to release it to these groups. This information details my family’s home address and geographic coordinates. The only thing it doesn’t do is chauffeur these extremists to my house. For some operations, even telephone numbers and deceased relatives are listed.”
The problem had recent roots in January 2012 when EPA proposed the Clean Water Act Section 308 CAFO Reporting rule to collect information from CAFOs and make it publicly available and readily searchable through their website.
Rep. Rick Crawford (R-AR) released a statement and video condemning the EPA for their illegal acts.
Here’s the transcript:
In Arkansas, farming is a way of life. Agriculture is the number one industry in our First Congressional District and for many families it’s a rich tradition. As Arkansas’s only representative on the House Agriculture Committee, I fight each day to ensure farm families in our state can continue producing the safest, most abundant and reliable source of nutrition food on the planet.
Recently, I was informed the Environmental Protection Agency had released the personal information of livestock and poultry producers to extremist environmental groups. The information was released after the groups filed a request through the Freedom of Information Act.
The EPA turned over personal information like phone numbers, addresses and even geographic coordinates to environmentalists. An overwhelming majority of the information released appears to be from farms owned by families who may now face threats to their homes and businesses.
I have serious concerns over the EPA’s release of this information, particularly regarding individual privacy rights and possible bio-security threats to the nation’s food supply. Releasing this type of information makes producers potential targets of harassment, or even bio-terrorism. Unfortunately, this release of information is yet another example of the EPA’s overreach into the lives of hardworking individuals in rural America.
As Chairman of the Agriculture Subcommittee on Livestock, Rural Development, and Credit, I am leading a group of 40 House members in writing a letter to the acting director of the EPA expressing our concerns and asking the acting director to ensure the released information is not improperly used. In the letter, we demand answers on why the EPA obtained producers’ private information and, most important, what steps the agency will take to protect the affected producers while ensuring these actions will never happen again.
It is unacceptable for the EPA to do anything that could jeopardize our nation’s food security or threaten American farm operatins. The EPA must be held accountable for their actions and bureaucrats in Washington must consider the livelihoods of farm families and our nation’s food-security before they cower to extreme environmental groups.
Well, the trial lawyers, and animal rights dingbats would love this, normal people, with morals? Not so much
Massachusetts State Senator Mark Montigny (D-New Bedford) recently introduced a bill that would allow private individuals to file a lawsuit for the “protection and humane treatment of animals.” This is of great concern for all sportsmen, farmers, and dog owners.
Animal cruelty is already a crime in Massachusetts just as it is across the country. Animal cruelty laws are enforced by experienced law enforcement officers, including local police forces and animal control officers, who are trained on what is and is not animal cruelty under the law and how to spot it.
Senate Bill 767 would end this proven system and instead give private citizens the ability to sue animal owners over what they perceive to be “animal cruelty” under the law.
“Under this bill, animal rights activists would be able to sue anyone – including sportsmen, farmers, and dog owners – whenever and wherever they think animal cruelty is being committed,” said Evan Heusinkveld, USSA’s Director of Government Affairs. “This could force sportsmen and women who have done nothing wrong to spend thousands of dollars to defend themselves against animal rights zealots looking to take them to court.”
For example, if an animal rights activist thinks common dog training practices—such as using a shock collar or tethering—are inhumane, they would now be able to sue the sporting dog owner or trainer claiming animal cruelty. Likewise, an activist that disapproves of certain farming practices could sue farmers for the practices they consider cruel. Even if a judge ultimately throws out the case, the animal’s owner will likely have had to spend a good deal of money and time fighting the bogus lawsuit.
“Enforcement of animal cruelty laws should be left in the hands of trained law enforcement officers and not be given to animal rights activists to harass law-abiding animal owners and private citizens,” said Heusinkveld.
Another Democrat sponsoring a bill that would certainly have unintended consequences. Another Democrat pushing a bill when there are already sufficient laws on the books. What a loathsome party the Democrats have become
Meatless Mondays? Good Freaking grief! The things that small minds come up with. Maggies Notebook is as amazed at the stupidity as I am
Yes ladies and gentlemen all you have to do is “Pledge” to give up eating meat on Mondays. Right now it is voluntary but give these assholes enough time and it will be mandatory with stiff fines.
From the City Council that declared war on trans-fats and fast-food restaurants comes the latest way to make residents feel, well, guilty about what they eat.
The Los Angeles council, in a 14-0 vote on Friday, adopted a resolution urging residents to adopt a personal pledge to have a “meatless Monday.”
While it does not have the force of law and police will not be checking what you brought to work for lunch, city officials said they hope it will start a trend, make residents healthier and reduce the impact on the environment.
“This follows the `good food’ agenda we recently adopted supporting local, sustainable food choices,” said Councilwoman Jan Perry, who has called for a ban on new fast-food restaurants in South Los Angeles to fight obesity.
“We can reduce saturated fats and reduce the risk of heart disease by 19 percent,” Perry said. “While this is a symbolic gesture, it is asking people to think about the food choices they make. Eating less meat can reverse some of our nation’s most common illnesses.”
Councilman Ed Reyes, who joined with Perry in proposing the resolution, said one of his sons has been diagnosed with diabetes.
“The issue is how does a local municipality engage in this and how do we create change,” Reyes said. “If we do it one plate at time, one meal, one day, we are ratcheting down the impact on our environment. We start with one day a week and then, who knows, maybe we can change our habits for a lifetime.”
The proposal was developed by the Food Policy Council, which has a goal of “creating more and better food jobs” and encouraging food companies and small food enterprises as part of a bigger agenda to encourage healthy foods in the city.
One such organization that behaves in this way is the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), which has such a long string of mind-bogglingly silly publicity stunts to its name that they could fill several books. From their biology-defying decision to try to market fish as “Sea Kittens,”to the numerous models they dress in nothing but leaves, to the embarrassing street theater that they engage in while dressed like overgrown Peep marshmallows, PETA will likely go down in history as the only freak show to ever successfully make its living as a nonprofit.
But now PETA has decided to take on a new target – celebrity chefs – and have done so with a video that is simultaneously so ghoulishly hilarious and so unimaginably offensive that we have no choice but to report it. The Braiser reports:
The animal rights group recently launched its Silent Scream campaign targeting Fox, Gordon Ramsay, and Hell’s Kitchen. Apparently, they’d like Fox to air their latest PSA featuring “groundbreaking new fish empathy” propaganda during Hell’s Kitchen commercial breaks, in an effort to parallel the silent screams of all those dying fishies to the distinctly audible screams of Gordon Ramsay. Huh?
How disturbed are these people? To compare such horrible acts of violence against people to cooking a fish? Really? Can you say moral retardation?
One day I am going to post a list of my steadfast rules of life. On that list, will be Indoctrination Sucks. Note, I do not mind education, I certainly do not mind having anyone taught different ideas. I, in other words, welcome education, but indoctrination is the nemesis of education. Indoctrination seeks to prevent thinking, and you need look no further than this video via American Power, for proof of how deplorable, and dangerous indoctrination is.
There really is nothing to add is there? Except to be sure that this young mind is being taught this at SCHOOL! On our dime!
I am reminded of a chat I had about four years ago. I vacation in Estes park, Colorado every September. I love hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park, a place I fell in love with in 2001, and Estes Park borders the park.
In 2008, I decided to take a tour, via a six-wheeler, into the back country. The woman who drove us talked about the history, the wildlife, etc. She explained during the tour that the elk, which are plentiful in the area, were actually brought in, decades ago from another area of the West, California I think it was. She explained further that this was made necessary because the elf population was wiped out in the area by evil man. Now, I agree that it was tragic, and criminal frankly, that people did such a thing. What did strike me as odd, however, was that she never gave any credit to the people who FIXED the problem, by re-introducing elk to the area.
She was perfectly willing to paint people as bad, but very loathe to credit those that repaired, as best they could, the damage. Odd that Liberals are often that way isn’t it? Which, I think, proves another great rule of life I have, Liberalism is an ideology of pessimism. But that is another post!
Well, because it is easy, I mean they wear Berets and talk funny. Also, it is safe, because no one from France will kick your butt for doing it, I mean they wear Berets! Lastly, it is fun, I mean they wear Berets!! Just ask Chris at Wyblog who is more afraid of literate baboons, because they do NOT wear Berets.
Dan the baboon sits in front of a computer screen. The letters BRRU pop up. With a quick and almost dismissive tap, the monkey signals it’s not a word. Correct. Next comes, ITCS. Again, not a word. Finally KITE comes up.
He pauses and hits a green oval to show it’s a word. In the space of just a few seconds, Dan has demonstrated a mastery of what some experts say is a form of pre-reading and walks away rewarded with a treat of dried wheat.
Dan is part of new research that shows baboons are able to pick up the first step in reading — identifying recurring patterns and determining which four-letter combinations are words and which are just gobbledygook.
The study shows that reading’s early steps are far more instinctive than scientists first thought and it also indicates that non-human primates may be smarter than we give them credit for.
“They’ve got the hang of this thing,” said Jonathan Grainger, a French scientist and lead author of the research.
Sure, this week they give him some dried wheat. Next week? Next week he gets a rifle. The French immediately surrender. Then we find out Dan’s real name is Dr. Zaius.
Where’s Charlton Heston when you need him?
Yeah, go ahead, laugh now, but when we are fighting monkeys in the streets, we will know who to blame won’t we? Yeah, those beret-wearing Frenchmen!
Folks, Gore and his followers at The Church of Climate Change fanaticism might be doing a better job of convincing everyone their claims of global warming are true, if only the Polar Bears they insist are going extinct would freaking die already!
The longer we look at the
Global Cooling Global WarmingGlobal Climate Disruption scam, the more and more it starts to fall apart. One of the iconic images of the scam is this, featuring the poor polar bears…
The debate about climate change and its impact on polar bears has intensified with the release of a survey that shows the bear population in a key part of northern Canada is far larger than many scientists thought, and might be growing.
The number of bears along the western shore of Hudson Bay, believed to be among the most threatened bear subpopulations, stands at 1,013 and could be even higher, according to the results of an aerial survey released Wednesday by the Government of Nunavut. That’s 66 per cent higher than estimates by other researchers who forecasted the numbers would fall to as low as 610 because of warming temperatures that melt ice faster and ruin bears’ ability to hunt. The Hudson Bay region, which straddles Nunavut and Manitoba, is critical because it’s considered a bellwether for how polar bears are doing elsewhere in the Arctic.
66% higher population! Well, that really pokes a hole in the alarmist’s claims, does it not?
The study shows that “the bear population is not in crisis as people believed,” said Drikus Gissing, Nunavut’s director of wildlife management. “There is no doom and gloom.”
Man, if this type of news keeps coming out, Al Gore and his flunkies might have to start working on another scam.

Via A View From The Beach comes this news. The T-Rex was a very bad beast
Scientists say they have proof that the Tyrannosaurus rex, the dinosaur adored by children and makers of plastic toys, had the most powerful bite of any creature that lived on land.
The bite of a grown T-rex was up to 10 times that of a Mississippi alligator, exerting a force of nearly six tonnes – the weight of an elephant – on a single tooth, according to a study published on Wednesday.
The estimate comes from a 3-D computer simulation of a T-rex head, with reconstructions of its bones, jaw movement and muscle power, say University of Liverpool palaeontologists led by Karl Bates.
“Models predict that adult T-rex generated sustained bite forces of 35,000-57,000 Newtons at a single posterior tooth, by far the highest bite forces estimated for any terrestrial animal,” says the paper.
By comparison, humans exert only 70 to 100 kilos of force on a single tooth.
Meredith Lowell, a 27-year-old Ohio woman was jailed after she allegedly tried to hire a hit man to kill any random person found to be wearing animal fur.
According to FBI agents, Lowell spent months trying to solicit a hit man through Facebook, with the intention of killing a random person who was caught wearing fur clothing.
Undercover officers began communicating with Lowell through Facebook In November after being alerted to the alleged plot.
Investigators say Lowell posted a request on Facebook which stated “I would like to create an online community on facebook which would allow me to find someone who is willing to kill someone wearing fur toward the end of October 2011 or early November 2011 or possibly in January 2012 or February 2012 at the latest.”
Lowell, using the alias Anne Lowery, allegedly wrote that she would be willing to pay up to $850 to anyone willing to carry out the deed. She referred to the act as a “hit, a demonstration and a protest.”
During email exchanges between Lowell and FBI agents, Lowell reportedly stated that she wanted to be present when the murder occurred, so that she could begin handing out animal rights “papers” at the scene. She also stated that murdering a 12 year old child would be “fine” but that she would prefer the victim to be at least 14 if possible.
Lowell offered the undercover agent $730 in jewelry to complete the “hit” while providing detailed explanations about how she wanted murder to be performed.
“You need to bring a gun that has a silencer on it and that can be easily concealed in your pants pocket or coat. If you do not want to risk the possibility of getting caught with a gun before the job, bring a sharp knife that is (at least) 4-inches long, it should be sharp enough to stab someone and/or slit their throat to kill them. I want the person to be dead in less than two minutes,” stated Lowell during another email exchange.
Lowell was booked into jail and charged with solicitation to commit murder.
An 85-pound Argentine mastiff dog dramatically rescued a day earlier from an icy lake was impounded Wednesday after viciously biting a Denver television news anchor on her face during a live in-studio segment. WATCH THE ICE RESCUE VIDEO HERE: http://bit.ly/z04oVW
Kyle Dyer was conducting an interview on the rescue of Gladiator Maximus, also known as Max, after the dog fell into a frigid Lakewood lake Tuesday while chasing a coyote. The live segment was aimed at reuniting firefighter Tyler Sugaski, who rescued the animal, and Michael Robinson, the dog’s owner.
According to KUSA-TV , firefighters, paramedics and animal control were called to the station after the attack.
I hope the woman is OK, she put her face right in the dog’s, never a good idea if you are not familiar with the dog for sure.
Olivia Munn naked? Why the heck not!
Just think. Someone, somewhere, thought that this would be a good idea.
First kittens, then puppies and hamsters and now goldfish?
San Francisco’s Animal Control and Welfare Commission is recommending that the City ban the sale of goldfish, tropical fish and guppies in its borders,according to Matier and Ross.
The recommendation to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors is part of the commission’s ongoing efforts to discourage “impulse buys” of animals.
The commission’s ban would cover pet stores and breeders in the City. It comes after more than a year of study and findings that aquarium fish are often mass bred under inhumane conditions or stripped from the wild.
However, the ban is only a recommendation and not likely to be passed by the full board of supervisors to become law.
Only a recommendation, for now that is. Seriously, politicians, at all levels of government spend way too much time in session, and this is one of the things that lead to these inane laws.
