Pam.....You are so right!!!
Along with this destructive & useless stuff
the people need the PILL or Tubalization
Overpopulation & this nasty ass stuff
serves no purpose at all.

What all 3rd world people need is to be
EDUCATED on the impact of their huge
overflowing masses & the thieves of the
land among them..
Animal are not at all as greedy or stupid
as humans are.

Wherever you are there once was a forest.
Plant & protect Danny's trees for life.
Trees are the lungs of the earth.

BOYCOTT PALM OIL! Forests in Indonesia and now Africa are being demolished for Oil palm plantations. Please don't buy Nutella or Chocolate/Hazelnut JIf, International Delight coffee creamer, most instant Ramen noodles, microwave popcorn, "yogurt" covered snacks, and cheap "white" chocolate- all contains loads of palm oil.

never purchase any product containing palm oil or palm oil itself.
look on the labels when you shop
that is how will you hit them
