BENDIMAIL..12/20/10 Oh...Sarah Palin's new Learning Channel show is hateful...She teaches her kid Bristol how to take a Halibut and SMASH it over the head to stop it from trashing about...she says it "bruises it's meat making it less valuable!!...I can't stand that woman....she likes to kill animals, wildlife...and is not at all ashamed to say so. That part is interesting....she gets that most humans do not value wildlife...so why should she care...it doesn't hurt her public image...I get it's "tradition"...in Alaska...for many people they killed it or they didn't eat...Hunters here in the lower US states will pull that same crap over their right to slaughter deer, bear, etc..."Our ancestors had to bla bla bla"....Well...YA DON'T HAVE TO DO IT NOW!!!! People who hunt just like to see things die...it's tradition for some families to beat their wives, kids...it doesn't make it right..Why do people "choose" to remain clueless"... Excuse typos..I can spell..lol
more next time..
Bendimail..10/10...please look at video...Please support PAUL WATSON...of SEA SHEPARDS!!! My hero!! SAVE THE WHALES...
I AM ILL..I just spent several hours..updating this blog with info on the GASSING of animals in NC...with detailed message of why /how you can contact our state Reps to demand a stop to this cruelty!! There are other ways..NO one has a right to EVER complain unless you are GOING to b/c ACTIVE !! In stopping this practice! DEMANDING...to your Reps..is a start..call them at wash. DC # or their local #...(goggle NC state reps for your own congressman/district) and also..our Senators!!

Hey ev1..please join some of the wildlife groups on Facebook...and have your friends there....join us too...I wish Care2 was listed on the "share" symbol...it would be easier to post/add... info to this site...everyone write Care2 and tell them...
Please be sure to research our candidates for their voting history on all ANIMAL rights issues...do this before you give them your support !! Your vote is the only thing you have that these people will ever want. Make them earn it!
Also, remember that wolves are STILL being shot everyday in Alaska...Aerial Hunting is alive and well. Contact your Congressman and demand they support the PAW act..(hr3663)...remind both your Senators, and Congressman to support PAW and pressure the US Fish and Wildlife Service to place the YELLOWSTONE wolves back on the Endangered List....
HELLO FARMER'S....put up a fence..a real fence..rather than a thin peice of wire. Then you can keep your cattle (shame on you for killing livestock to start with) IN...and the wolves OUT! Killing them isn't the answer. I don't want to hear how you will go broke if another sorry wolf kills another calf. Boo Hoo,,,you kill the calves for money...if a wolf does kill livestock it really is to survive and feed their families. I know for a fact..if I lived where wolves, or other wild animals roamed, and I had small kids, pets, etc...I would have a FENCE up to protect both MY family and the wild animals. I'd MOVE if I couldn't manage a fence! This type recklessness leads to slaughter. Compromise is the only answer..We are supposed to be learning to live WITH wildlife...not killing them because they get hungry. It's cruel and stupid to tempt them with prey animals...all but loose (remember the little wire fence) right under their noses. Trust me..I don't think they grab your livestock to deliberately keep you from sending your kids to college. They are just trying to feed their own kids. And yes..I'd be happy to pay some extra tax to help you pay for your fence if you'd promise not to kill another wild animal unless someone's life is in danger. Then...maybe we can discuss your learning a new trade (soybeans maybe) and you can stop killing babies and their mom's...You have a choice unfortunately!
PLEASE read this material...It's critical now that the news is on the meat industry...Join us and help these farm animals..help us help them.....(DO NOT forget our wolves..(right page..video) and our polar bears...oxox
This is done a little at a time..please come back if you are interested in any of these links and info: KEEP READING..THERE IS A LOT HERE...
First...I love animals, and have been working extremely hard for the wolves given their recent situations. I have friends who help me, and it is greatly appreciated. Before I get to the wildlife issue..I have been wanting to post some info on a group I have supported for many years. The HUMANE FARMING ACT !!! These guys are class acts. They are about the ONLY group who actually goes out and fights for the rights of farm animals. I am a vegetarian..and am NOT interested in hearing putdowns from Passive, lukewarm vegans, and vegetarians. IF you are active, and will fight for the welfare of these important, friendly and loving animals..write me..I'd be happy to know you. BUT..if you are one who thinks just because you do not eat meat, drink milk, etc...that you are helping to save an animals suffering, you are as ignorant as those who actually harm them. Passivity has NO place in animal activism..period! HFA [ C a m p a i g n s ]
HFA [ P h o t o / V i d e o G a l l e r y ]
Here is the link to the HFA site..it is graphic...but I HOPE ev1 will have the guts to watch and see the suffering these animals endure so you can have a steak, chicken or porkchop! The momentary taste on your lips will account for days, hours of unbelievale suffering for these little animals whos only freakin crime was to be born.They were NOT put on this earth to feed you anymore than our wildlife was!!Greed and Evil people kill for money and sport. VERY FEW need to kill an animal for food these days, and they usually do not abuse this action.. I am NOT trying to stop the meat industry..it is WAY too much to wish for..I'd be ignorant to think it could be done. Only if everyone , everywhere stops eating meat!!! It IS however, possible to improve the conditions in which these helpless animals live. IF it bothers you..and you'd like to REALLY get involved ..let me know. Join this group..get your info by mail every month...the owners of these slaughter houses do NOT follow the rules and kill these animals humanely..why should they ..who's gonna stop them..plus, who cares???
Imagine being hit on the head and finding yourself dazed but still fully conscious. A chain is attached to one of your legs and you're hoisted upside down onto an assembly line. Gigantic clippers are used to snip off the lower parts of your arms and legs. Completely helpless, you feel workers cutting into your thighs, belly, and sides as they strip your skin from your legs to your neck....
This is what it is like for these farm animals in these slaughter houses.
all so Mr and Mrs so and so can have a nice dinner

for the above )
Another FANTASTIC group ( the humane society) helping farm animals...PLEASE sign/write...it is all right here..LOOK AT VIDEO !! Thanks.
please let your news media (write/call them)know how you feel!! tell them this is NOT just about tainted meat!! It is about ANIMAL CRUELTY....I certainly don't want anyone sick...but people have ALWAYS had a "choice"..eat meat or not!! These animals were being taunted and hit by workers. They were already too sick to stand up...This is the real crime. Contaminated meat is also of course, but these animals keep me up at night writing/working and supporting these two farm animal groups...WOO HOO to The HUMANE SOCIETY for this video..Keep up the fight ..it must stop!!
Take Action: Feeding dangerous cruelty to our kids in school lunches
SUPPORT THE PAW ACT...CONTACT YOUR CONGRESSMAN..simply tell him " to CO-SPONSOR the PAW ACT.... Bill # HR3663, (stop aerial hunting in Alaska) , and 'Please call the US Fish and Wildlife Service. Demand they REVERSE the "delisting of wolves" in YELLOWSTONE and the Northern Rocky Mountain States. My own Congressman (4th district) stated to me in a letter that "quote" THIS IS NOT ABOUT WOLF CONTROL...BUT RATHER WOLF ERADICATION' "end quote"
LOOK AT THESE>>MORE LATER..PLEASE WATCH..LINKS ON WOLF INFO TO MAKE IT EASIER TO CONTACT PEOPLE
OK, OK...this is not meant to be taken to the dark side of the moon...just a few thoughts at this moment in time!
I wish animals could treat people the same way we treat them! It's time humans learn what it feels like to be harpooned and trapped. I can imagine a tiger family filing thru the black market to find just the right human body part to make the female come into "heat" faster! Pleezzz....or the spotted kiddies of Mr. and Mrs. Leopard sporting the very latest in human skin pants...(you have it..now you know why I am called Gloomcookie)
Also..have you ever noticed how some people are very guarded about their "privacy"...they can be downright secretive about "stuff" the rest of us would feel comfortable telling a stranger!!. They must know everything about you, and I mean everything to see if you are "worthy" of their trust. Yet, they tell you straight away "I trust no one"...
It must be exhausting to watch (guard) ones' own back every second. They sure can't watch yours being so preoccupied with their own. This flaw makes them poor friends and even worse partners. They appear to need to be in charge of everything but often respond quite the opposite. I have heard "oh, no...whatever you want is fine with me" only to find I am going to suffer later for that decision. Their inability to be "real"..and simply say what they feel/think...prevents honesty. These people are extremely concerned with what others think of them although again, they cover it well. Rather than say "I would rather do this if it's ok with you"....it's common for them to give you what you want..seething inside all the while. There is a lot of paranoia and hard to make a relationship with difficult people.
No..I am not a know it all...And no..my late hubby was not like this. The first thing he thought of most days was how could he make MY day brighter. And he did..all he ever had to do was just be...
