Wanting better treatment for our food animals is fine, and morally correct, but opposing killing and eating things in general? That's primal.
    PETA would say that you have a choice in what you eat whereas a lion does not.

    Seriously? I think that is a form of child abuse.

    I completely agree.
    Scientific fact: If you took all of the veins from your body and laid them end to end, you would die.

    Remember folks, there is a bright spot in these trying economic and stormy times. We can always laugh at PETA.
    Its nonsense like this why I have absolutely no respect for PETA and why I think anyone who is a member of PETA is ****en retarded.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    I never really saw the issue with their euthanization program. Infact, most non-kill shelters Ive been too become little more than foster homes for problem animals that no one will take. Eating up valuable resources and limiting their ability to place others

    Looks to me it is kill or be killed, animals don't shed a tear when we die after all. Domestic pets may be on our side most of the time but otherwise, I say animals are the enemy.

    I think you're being a little over dramatic.

    I think in many cases it's absurd that someone gets jail time for it.

    I am, but my point is we are on the top of the food chain and we got here by killing lots of animals. I see little more reason to mourn the passing of some fish than stale bread. Food is food.

    I do think it is ridiculous that you can chop a chickens head off and no one says anything but if you shoot your dog because he was getting violent people will think you a bad person. I can see reason for some anti animal abuse laws but really most of it seems questionable to me.
