How Beastly-Animals in Revolt…

Also titled "Unbearable" and "revolting animals". The story, COLUMBIA STATION, Ohio – A bear attacked and killed its caretaker at the home of a man who kept a menagerie of dangerous, exotic beasts and ran afoul of animal regulators a few years ago by staging wrestling matches between bears and humans. How wonderful. By the way, they offed the bear too. Like Momma Bear in Yellowstone. Forget Teddy Ruxpin and Paddington and Winnie the Pooh. Those are toys and works of pure anthropomorphic fiction. Bears are NOT humans and don't even think the way humans do, otherwise they'd take the guns from the first three or four humans and the rest would be horrendous. 19538

Mayor looks PETA gift horse in the tits

COLORADO SPRINGS- When our cash-wrung city decided to cut trash removal for municipal parks --if also to make it harder on the homeless camps-- People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) famously stepped in with an offer to subsidize the service if we agreed to use their trash cans.   Bruised by national news accounts of our shuttered services and having to extinguish 1/3 of our traffic lights, Mayor Rivera accepted PETA's offer. Until he saw their message. Which element was it that was too risqué for conservative Hooter Springs: the lettuce-clad bikini girl? The call to go vegan? Or the trashing of the Tea Partier's staple for what's for dinner?

The Toilet Paper Bears – A Fitting Analogy for once.

So, leave aside the notion that male bears tend to eat their offspring. It's a little too graphic for the anthropomorphists But one of their new themes is Poppa Bear and Little Bear in a rowboat fishing. Little Bear gets impatient. Then has the bright idea to drop a piece of the Overpriced-and-not-any-better-than-any-other-brand of toilet paper into the water.Which is so absorbent that it dries up the whole lake. All the fish are gasping for water to breathe, flopping around in their death throes. Somehow, in the insane popularity contest that passes for "awww, wook at the cute animals" the fish aren't given fake smiles, humanized eye placement and faces, and the other pond dwellers who are sometimes anthropomorphized, like the frogs, aren't represented. BUT... That's not the truly relevant part. 15459

Hot Dog!

The swearing in of the White House Dog is upon us, as the ever vigilant American press reports that Obama's dog may debut Tuesday! Unfortunately the President has decided to pick a Portuguese water dog simply because it has a cute and 'IN' brand name. 7341

Veggie Love

"Veggie Love" Banned Super Bowl Ad ...Do vegetarians have better sex as PETA alleges, or in fact do beer guzzling Super Bowl fans have it more and better? Carrots versus Beer? Which is it? And youtube and the National Football League both want to know if you are mature enough to deal with this issue?

Indian elephants fail to apply Gandhi’s theories of peaceful resistance

OK, this is a gratuitous commentary but don't blame me for it, since I've merely overdosed on the religion from the Colorado Springs Justice and Peace Commission, a group supposedly dedicated to fighting US war making and not just for going to some sort of New Age Church on off days of the week.

We are just wiping out primates

One of the most disturbing things about lifestyle vegetarians and the group PETA is that they consistently distract people from paying attention to the real dangers to animals on this planet. They want to fight about whether one should have a hamburger or not and often engage in tactics that are just plain stupid. 4043
