    LOL, I know. I was all ready to send when I noticed the source. Decided to do it anyway because faux fur is bad for the environment, no matter the messenger.

    They don't love animals-they just hate humans

    Re: Ban on furs

    One doesn't have to be an animal rights advocate to believe that the fur industry is an abomination. I'm no Ingrid Newkirk (my cats work for me, dammit), but the fur industry at this point in time serves no worthwhile purpose. I hope we will someday develop a conscience about animals in the U.S.

    I grew up on a cattle farm. The thing about cattle is that EVERY SINGLE PART of that animal is used for something....food, dogfood, leather, other products. But fur animals are killed, skinned, and left to rot, not to mention confined in stinking tiny cages their entire lives. It's a sickening industry.

    Amen, sister.

    For years, I have been on the fence about the seal slaughter here in Canada. After reading a great article in National Geographic that shedded light on the pros and cons of the hunt, I came to the conclusion that it's wrong after weighting in on all of the facts. First, the method of killing is not always consistent, quick and painless. And second, most of the time, the meat is left to rot on the ice after the seal is skinned. I simply cannot back that.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    The fur farms are even worse.

    Beyond that, fur is simply no longer something that people need. We have plenty of warm alternatives. I love my north face jacket that is made out of recycled plastic bottles. It is so soft and warm! Best jacket I've ever owned, and it sheds water.

    Re: Ban on furs

    The fur industry (raising minks for example) is not the only source of fur. and if someone wants to trap himself a new Raccoon coat or a rabbit skin cap I have no problem with that. THe people who want to ban the fur industry tend to be the same loons who want to ban hunting and fishing. And while they claim it is because they love animals, a shot of truth serum would most likely uncover a far more sinister motivation.

    You are in no position to tell someone else what they need. Control freaks thrive on that phrase-from the gun banners to the wealth stealing tax hikers. Each case involves-you DON'T NEED THAT

    you determine what YOU NEED and leave us to Determine what WE NEED

    YEah, I love how you keep making these generalizations that are totally inaccurate. I have no problems with people in Alaska trapping furs for their own purposes. However, I do have problems with the fur industry overall, and most especially fur farms.

    I don't like factory farms of any kind. They are horrible polluters to the groundwater. As we've seen from recent food scares, they are dangerous. They're horrible neighbors. And, the treatment of animals is shameful.

    Just because we eat animals doesn't mean that they shouldn't be treated in as humane a way as possible.

    As far as banning hunting and fishing, why on earth would we want to do that? I live in the South. Most of my neighbors hunt and fish, my dad hunted and fished, I fish, my boyfriend fishes, and my kids fish. We're responsible stewards.

    I know, as someone who grew up on a farm, the difference between farm practices that are responsible and respectful of animals, and those that aren't.

    Why don't you try arguing the actual topic, instead of creating strawmen. *yawn*

    You NEED a fur coat? What, you pimpin in the hood, yo?

    bwhahhahahahhaahah.

    Chill out, bro. No one is trying to steal your guns on this thread, or your capital gains.

    And stop with the strawmen. They're lame. Didn't you have to take a basic rhetoric/logic class in law school?
