This is Jodie, she is a 14 yr old BLM Mustang Mare. Jodie was almost a statistic in that the eventuality of her going to slaughter was a real possibility. Then she would have become one of the 100,000 horses that do go to slaughter annually. She has been starved, abused & beaten (whip marks on face). She is but one Wild Horse rescue and this is her, story… http://itsmylifeandiwilldecide.blogspot.com/

June 2010 3 horses were found in desperate and emanciated condtions in a junk yard. one of them a little mustang, we have named "jodie". her BLM govt. brand indicates that she was captured in 96-97 and that she is approximately 14 years old now. also that identified is that she is from a wild Nevada herd. she is still in critical condition and under the care of a private individual. her recovery will be long and hard the next two months if she survives thru this process. "jodie" may also be pregnant to add worse to bad. she was confined with a intact 2-3 yr old stallion, along with another dapple grey mare (also with serious cuts/infections to her body). "Jodie" is a broken spirited horse, there is no hope in her eyes, or her body. She has no trust of humans of any kind. Althou she has given up the spirit to fight, or object to being handled, or cared for. On her body is the war scars and signs of abuse, and mistreatments, from deep scars to sever saddle sores. whip marks that will never go away that were of the years in the hands of mankind. the misery and sorrow, the pain and torture, and i can't even imagine the fears that she has had to deal with silently and inside of herself over these years. ??!! to read more of how "jodie" was found, and rescued, where she is and where she is going now after her many years in the hands of mankinds unkindness and cruelty, read at these 2 mustang groups on care2. photos are included of the Jodie and other Mare that was rescued. http://www.care2.com/c2c/groups/disc.html?gpp=20674&pst=1415391 http://www.care2.com/c2c/groups/disc.html?gpp=18516&pst=1152503

Under a relatively new law called the "Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act" (A.E.T.A.), activists engaged in efforts to bring needless suffering to an end for non-human animals inside factory farms, vivisection labs, circuses and the like, now potentially face charges as "terrorists" in federal courts even if their actions are peaceful and First Amendment protected.
 

Although a pre-existing law from 1992 known as the "Animal Enterprise Protection Act" was initially created to further prosecute and create harsher penalties for activists who use illegal tactics to save lives, such as liberating animals from abusive situations and causing economic damage to industries that profit from suffering, the A.E.T.A. has taken it one step further and tacked on the label of "terrorism" for such activities.

 

If labeling a person who actually saves innocent lives a "terrorist", rather than the person who systematically abuses and kills animals for a living seems Orwellian to you, the vagueness used in writing this law will be even more unsettling.

 

Although the law is allegedly intended to curb illegal actions, it essentially says that those interfering with the operations of an animal enterprise with the intent of causing economic damage are committing acts of terrorism.

 

Well, doesn't that include every single boycott, protest, campaign and demonstration to put an end to animal exploitation? Aren't we trying to cause economic damage to a company that abuses animals by boycotting them? Isn't that the whole point? When taken literally, that law goes so far as to include even living a vegan lifestyle since our very choice of diet is "disrupting animal enterprises."

 

The terms and language used in this law are far reaching and potentially very threatening to the legal Animal Rights and Animal Welfare movement.

 

 The law does include a clause that states:

"Nothing in this section shall be construed to prohibit any expressive conduct (including peaceful picketing or other peaceful demonstration) protected from legal prohibition by the First Amendment to the Constitution."

 

But within less than three years of the laws passage, four activists from California involved in anti-vivisection campaigns were indicted for violating the A.E.T.A., even though none of them was involved in illegal actions and all of them adhered to completely legal First Amendment protected activities.

 

They each face up to 10 years in prison for passing out leaflets, attending demonstrations and circulating public knowledge on the Internet about known animal abusers. Does any of this fit into our ideas of terrorism or sound like terrorist activity to you?

 

The fact that the government is classifying activists as terrorists who simply want animal abuse to end is one of the most grotesque misuses of such a timely sensitive word. To compare the actions of peaceful protests to the attacks of 9/11, even if you are someone who is not aligned with the animal activist movement, is totally unreasonable.

 

Is it possible that some of this is the result of tremendous pressure from animal abusing industries that want animal protection movements to disappear. The idea of freeing animals from exploitation is simply bad for business.

 

In a time when terrorism is an actual threat to many of us, it seems terribly unfair and extremely disrespectful to those who have lost loved ones to real terrorist attacks to even remotely compare them to animal activists.

 

It is interesting to note that in the long history of the animal rights movement, not one person has been killed by an activist. That is because killing is fundamentally antithetical to what these activists are trying to achieve, which is a more just and peaceful world.

One reoccurring barrier we found was the lack of convenience for those who do not have a curbside program. Photo: Amanda Wills, Earth911.com

A lot of people just don’t recycle. While there may be a temptation to imagine them as conspiring Earth Haters who take orders directly from Skeletor, they are usually normal people who try to contribute positively to society in other ways.

They are members of our family, our neighbors and our friends. So what makes them choose to bypass the blue bin?

We investigated five individuals who do not regularly recycle. A better understanding of  their “why” can help proponents of recycling better understand the “how” of what can be done to increase participation.

Editor’s note: Names have been changed to encourage participants to be candid.

READ MORE AS THIS IS INTERESTING TO THOSE THAT ARE INTO OR NOT INTO RECYCLING:

PASS ACT....new name for REAL ID.................

MARK LERNER, Executive Director of the Stop Real ID Coalition, is exposing Senator Lieberman for not having and not allowing, anyone, to testify before the committee who is in opposition to Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs S. 1261 - THE PASS ACT.  [Once again Washington politicians have proven they are totally incapable of "CHANGE".]  Both the Real ID Act and The PASS Act will result in Americans being enrolled into a single global biometric identification system that links a person's body to their ability to buy and sell.

* STOP THE PASS ACT S.1261 – It’s really the REAL ID Act
* Don’t let them pass the PASS Act – It’s really the REAL ID Act

REAL ID ACTION ALERT: The Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs will be having hearings on the PASS Act  S. 1261. The PASS Act WILL NOT REPEAL REAL ID as it is being billed. It will only repeal certain portions like Title ii and in the end be worse than REAL ID once the PASS Act is inserted. REAL ID will REMAIN Federal law and will be stronger than before if passed.
Both the ACLU and the ACLJ are opposing the Real ID Act and the PASS Act.   (The ACLU and the ACLJ are the most prominent legal organizations on the "left" and "right" respectively.)
Special interests groups are trying to force Democrats, Independents and Republicans to support this legislation.  States have been and are working to ensure driver's licenses are secure documents and have document integrity.  The federal government, in spite of the states, wants to set international standards that are not needed.  The federal government wants control of your state driver's license.  The federal government is bribing states to go along with its plans.
Our freedom and our rights are not for sale.
Some governors want to take the bribe money.  The First, Fourth and Tenth Amendments are under attack.  The Second Amendment will follow.  This is not a partisan issue.  All Americans must take action now.
The PASS Act does not repeal the Real ID Act. It does repeal provisions of the Real ID Act; those provisions that are included in Title II of the Real ID Act 2005. The Real ID Act is still intact and is federal law.
The PASS Act contains many of the most egregious aspects of the Real ID Act; including the requirement for a digital facial image/photograph that will be mandated to be internationally facial recognition compatible. 
There is not a federal law that prohibits the simultaneous use of CCTV/surveillance cameras and facial recognition technology in real time.
The PASS Act will do nothing to provide a higher level of National security.  Under the provisions of the PASS Act the documents used to obtain a driver's license are not authenticated.  These documents are called "breeder" documents.
Although requirements for new databases and the linking of databases are not part of the PASS Act the fact remains through aamva.net and NLETS states can still have information contained in their state Department of Motor Vehicles made available to both federal and international law enforcement agencies without a court order.
Two international agencies (AAMVA and the ICAO, an agency of the United Nations) were involved in U.S. policy and law - the Real ID Act 2005 and the newly proposed PASS Act.  DHS has called AAMVA the "hub" and "backbone" of the Real ID Act.  On AAMVA's own web-site it proclaims it is an international organization that serves law enforcement and motor vehicle administrators.
Both the Real ID Act and the PASS Act result in Americans being enrolled into a single global biometric identification system that links a person's body to their ability to buy and sell.
The Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs will be considering the legislation very soon.  The committee members and their phone numbers are listed below.  Ask your neighbors, friends, co-workers, relatives and everyone else you have contact with to make the calls as well.
16 CALLS, 16 MINUTES, FOR YOUR FREEDOM AND FUTURE GENERATIONS FREEDOM.
