    First of all she is a member of PETA and she is a blond. Two of those things,especially the fist one are not a sign of intelligence .Not only that she is standing out the thinking people are actually paying attention to her message instead of her.
    "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"

    No ****!!! I've related this event before on here, I think but it drives the point home so well.

    My son's mom was taking him into McDonald's one day and this hippy chick came out of a crowd of smelly hippies and asked if she could give my son a free toy. It looked like a happy meal box so she just said yes and took him inside. He started crying in the McDonalds and she looked down to see that this was an Unhappy Meal and it had a little rubber chicken covered in fake blood, a picture of Ronald McDonald in a leather apron soaked in blood holding a machete`, and pictures of slaughter houses.

    I ended up having to pick her up at the jailhouse but no charges were filed against her for going back out into the parking lot and beating the **** out of three of them before a cop on break broke them up.

    Here's a similar picture but this was NOT the box it came in....

    Being blonde is a sign that someone's unintelligent? Is that just limited to females? No seriously, I'm too blonde to understand. Please explain to my feable little brain. Use small words.

    (I'll wait for Middleground to respond to your statement).

    Jall, is that your story? I know you're gay, but that doesn't mean you didn't have a child with a woman at some point. I ask because that's an extremely disgusting thing to do to a kid. I hope whoever's story this is really did teach them a lesson. It's infuriating. I'd have slammed the unhappy box upside their stinky, hippie heads.

    Second, one thing that bugs me (though much less than the anger I have for those sick PETA morons), is that people should never allow strangers to give their kids gifts. Never. We pound it into their heads never to accept gifts from strangers, so we should never accept any on their behalf. I've had people offer things to my kid right in front of me, and I put my hand right in front of them and say, "No thank you. He does not accept anything from strangers." They look at me like this ~~!> but I don't give a hoot. It's a lesson that could save my kid's life someday.

    Back to the topic ....

    If my kid brought one of those home...she'd probably be asking to go to the circus.

    I see lots of opportunity to backfire for PETA here.

    Parents have a liberty interest with their children that over rules freedom of speech in that regard.

    The school has the children as a captive audience and the children have to go by this person.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Yeah, it's my story through and through. I have a son who has two mommies who got friendly with my sperm and a turkey baster.

    I ask because that's an extremely disgusting thing to do to a kid. I hope whoever's story this is really did teach them a lesson. It's infuriating. I'd have slammed the unhappy box upside their stinky, hippie heads.
    I think what brought the cop out was her slamming their stinky, hippie heads against the parking lot. I laugh when I think about it now but at the time I was really mad that she did that in front of my boy.

    In her defense, they were in the parking lot of the McDonald's, wearing those visor caps that McDonald's employees wear and handing out free gifts in McDonald's Happy Meal boxes. I can't say I would have been terribly suspicious that he would open the box and find a bloody chicken inside.

    I am so happy to learn that you have a son! I bet he's adorable.

    I can understand why the moms would think it was an employee. That's even more disgusting. If nothing else, I s'pose it reinforces to your boy never to accept something from someone he doesn't know. Horrible lesson, though. I hope that jerks rot in he**.
