Animal rights activists..the new slave trade?

posted by Brad Stine

I am shocked to say that slavery is still alive and well in America. The culprits, exactly who you would least suspect, the “alleged” animal rights activists. Animal rights activists always entertain me with their lack of consistency. I am not a big animal lover but I also believe they are not to be abused or mistreated.

This is the same message you would get from an animal rights activist because the animal rights activists are the geniuses that coined the phrase “species-ists”.

I know, I know, it sounds like a punch line at best or at least a frightening term one would find in a science fiction book from George Orwell. Right up there with big brother and thought police.
Unfortunately the problem is it is all too real.

There are humans that believe that being human is in no way superior to being non-human even though humans are the only species with the capability of making that distinction. Dogs don’t since even though they’re “smart” they still sniff each other’s butt. Seems like it shouldn’t take more than once to know what a butt smells like and to avoid it at all costs?

Plus wouldn’t that be something your “memes” would pass on as soon as possible Dr. Dawkins?
I don’t blame animals of course since all they’re looking for is three steady meals. The problem as I see it and lets face it, I’m the only one that matters at this point, is the moment you take a wild animal out of it’s environment and teach it to act contrary to its instincts. It is precisely at this moment that you are acting inhumanely since you are controlling its autonomy.

Lets analyze the human/pet interaction and see what it looks like shall we? The animal lover always speaks about the pet in loving terms and assures us “they’re like one of the family”. They oftentimes refer to the pet as “just like their children”. Really? You need someone to guide your analysis a bit.

First off you OWN an animal, you get to sterilize it in the name of compassion, you can sell off its young whenever you want to make money, you can have it killed without penalty, and command it to obey your bidding, including the ultimate indignity, telling it where it is allowed to relieve itself.

That makes pet owners sound more like a slave owner than a humane individual.
Precisely why your called “master” I assume. A true animal lover should be releasing their cats into the wild so they can regain their killer instincts.

Don’t coddle a poodle but teach them to assume the fierceness that poodles lost when they were removed from the pack and their fur went from a thick armor designed to fend off attacks to carefully coiffed sweater-like appearance designed to make them represent a walking Q-tip.
We live in a time where animal rights fanatics will always stop any human progress of building or seeking energy if it in anyway inconveniences an animal or for that matter a moth or a mollusk.

Animals in their world aren’t treated as well as humans but actually better than us. A whale ends up on our beach we’ll spend thousands returning it to the sea. We fall into the sea, the creatures eat us. Ironically they call our treating animals gingerly being humane. You know, from the word human.

That’s my point after all. The fact that we discuss how to treat animals proves we are superior to them because I guarantee animals in the Serengeti aint having this conversation. They treat us animally because they are beneath us since they posses no compassion.

All I’m asking is to be consistent and do the humane thing by setting them free and letting the strong survive. If for know other reason than I have got to see what a pack of poodles looks like in their hunt for their former groomer. He’s going down!

Die in your sleep
Where did we ever come up with the romantic notion that the best way to die is in our sleep? First things first, when it comes to dying, there really isn’t a “good” way to go. Why? Because you’re dead! Dying in your sleep I believe comes with a lot of potential pitfalls. The first being i

Traveling today on an airplane next to the infamous crying. Screaming fidgety babies, while annoying, don’t bother me that much. Granted it’s unpleasant, but having had 2 kids myself I have the expertise to educate the baby-less in this little known fact. Believe it or not, one cannot reason

You know my fellow Americans, when it comes to military service, shouldn’t there be at least some basic requirements? When I think of a serviceman, I think of John Wayne, George Washington or Patton! I think of a rough and tumble, gritty, pull no punches man’s man! The military is no place

Americans know what they want when it comes to cars. We love convertibles for example because it’s the open air. It’s part of our heritage. Americans love to travel, and we are the experts. We travel everywhere we go, otherwise, we wouldn’t get anywhere. We are the lineage of a people that wer
