PETA's latest idiocy

Recommended Posts

Here's the latest from tonights evening news:

There is now a movement afoot to allow individual animals to be represented in US courts by attorneys. This means that suit could be brought on behalf of a labratory animal by animal rights activists in the courts of this country. The activist being interviewed on TV said :
(I paraphrase) "Because the chimpanzee has the same cognitve ability as an average 4 year old they should be granted the same rights to legal redress as that 4 year old."

He is not alone in his views. Larry Tribe (Harvard Law) is in agreement. He saw no reason why animals should not be granted legal rights similar to humans, including the ability to sue for monetary damages!

In my opinion, this is the perfect example of why the animal rights movement is so insidious and dangerous. This law, if enacted, would allow animals to bring suit against their owners. Under current law animals are considered property. The jist of the story was how some wackos are trying to make the connection in the mind of the public between the terrible institution of slavery and the practice of using animals in medical testing.

Of course, the vast majority of folks will just laugh this off as the latest screwball idea of the PETA crowd, but it does scare me to think that this story is considered important enough to make the 5:30 evening news. Just imagine a world where your black lab has the same rights in court as you do! Think about being sued by your gold fish!

Worst of all, if a chimp can sue for financial damages, how far behind will the call be for the same rights to be given to farm animals, wild game, and fish?

Sssshhh. If my dog gets wind of this, I'll be serving him T-bones from the grill every night (of course only if the cow doesn't sue me first). I'll have to sell my kid just to feed him. Then my kid will turn around and sue the dog for stealing his bed. And if I know my dog, he'll counter sue in order to cover the court cost. oh man, stop me!

This ought to bung up the court system enough to cost all the tax payers a pretty penny. I'm sure every american would rather have our taxes pay the court appointed lawyers for "Fido" and "Fluffy" than protect the citizens from terrorists.

"Animals as slaves" Lets take a quick poll of all the PETA members that utilze a seeing eye dog, or ever required the assistance of a rescue dog. How many required serum from a snake bite? And then we'll ask how many are from another planet (I bet we get some takers on the last one).

All creatures of the Earth are created to serve man. Man, created in the image of God, has rights over and above all creatures of Earth. Reference the Bible.

so IF the chimp were to prevail in this suit...and there is any $'s left after the lawyer's cut....how and what will he/she spend it on?....Easy to get the chimp a credit card...so then a bank account?...some form of ID...then probably be able to vote, too. There are fundamental differences between humans and animals....reference the biblical quote above. Let's hope this one is thrown out!

    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.   
    • I fish a big reservoir that goes as deep as 140 I believe and we do a bit of trolling over the deep parts of the lake.  In fact at night you can troll and your graph will be littered with fish in the 20-50ft range starting over 70ft of water but if you go to 60ft depth range your graph will be empty. Once the deep darkness of night falls those same fish will show 30-70ft deep on the graph suspending over 140ft of water.   We seem to mostly catch walleyes out of this group of fish and rarely catch anything else.
    • These feeders are only partially blackbird proof, as they can still poke their heads in and peck at the food a little bit. I don’t use the suet one much, because only downy woodpeckers can fit in there. 
    • This feeder is blackbird proof for the sole purpose that only woodpeckers and nuthatches can eat upside down. I purposely angle it this way so it’s easier for the pileated woodpeckers to hang on.
    • It only takes about 5 Mb/s to stream a HD movie.   I'm guessing you have some sort of interference going on.   Inadequate BW shows up as buffering....   Or the Roku is going bad.   I have had a couple of them do that, including a roku stick.      My money is on roku device being bad.   If you have a chromecast, does that work better?   
    • Milwaukee Fishing Eezy Peezy! By Milwaukee Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt Lake Michigan Salmon Fishing Report 6/24/2019 Hello all, thank you for reading my reports. Joe, Laura and Jonathan Wolf from Mansfield Texas had fair weather and a multi species catch on a beautiful day on Lake Michigan. I enjoyed the opportunity to fish with them. Join us in Milwaukee! To get my fish reports and how to videos first go to http://www.jimhirt.com By subscribing you will keep ahead of the other anglers. When I post you will get it fast! Action is steady and all species are active. The water is still 50 degrees on top. This has made for easy presentation to fish. As long as this continues anglers will have success don’t miss out. Good weather and lake conditions will fill the cooler in the future. The water is warming up near shore and that area is slow. There are pods of forage from 70 feet and out to 200. The recent changes has brought many Chinooks and Coho in. Most of the fish came from the top to the bottom. Our best presentations are Church Walleye planer boards with 150 and 225 copper running 40 to 65 down and downriggers 80 to 120 feet down. Flasher and Bull Frog flies or 100 foot leads on Reaper magnum spoons on downriggers have been the best producers. Reaper magnum spoons are sold at http://www.badgertackle.com with free shipping. Our best boat speed was 2.0 mph. Wire Divers are producing very well set to #2 with 130 feet of line out. Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!!

    • Well, after two and a half hours on the phone with Netgear and Comcast I have no resolution.  Comcast is coming out to the house on Wednesday to see what the problem is.  I am on the 150 mbs plan and I still only get around 30 on a speed test.  Even when I wire directly to the router the performance is the same.  I may upgrade to the Roku Ultra as well.
    • The speeds that you show are enough for streaming, the roku stick is not their best streaming device. I use Roku 3 and used to have your bandwidth with no problem.
