PETA's latest idiocy

Recommended Posts

Polar Bear

Here's the latest from tonights evening news:

There is now a movement afoot to allow individual animals to be represented in US courts by attorneys. This means that suit could be brought on behalf of a labratory animal by animal rights activists in the courts of this country. The activist being interviewed on TV said :
(I paraphrase) "Because the chimpanzee has the same cognitve ability as an average 4 year old they should be granted the same rights to legal redress as that 4 year old."

He is not alone in his views. Larry Tribe (Harvard Law) is in agreement. He saw no reason why animals should not be granted legal rights similar to humans, including the ability to sue for monetary damages!

In my opinion, this is the perfect example of why the animal rights movement is so insidious and dangerous. This law, if enacted, would allow animals to bring suit against their owners. Under current law animals are considered property. The jist of the story was how some wackos are trying to make the connection in the mind of the public between the terrible institution of slavery and the practice of using animals in medical testing.

Of course, the vast majority of folks will just laugh this off as the latest screwball idea of the PETA crowd, but it does scare me to think that this story is considered important enough to make the 5:30 evening news. Just imagine a world where your black lab has the same rights in court as you do! Think about being sued by your gold fish!

Worst of all, if a chimp can sue for financial damages, how far behind will the call be for the same rights to be given to farm animals, wild game, and fish?

Sssshhh. If my dog gets wind of this, I'll be serving him T-bones from the grill every night (of course only if the cow doesn't sue me first). I'll have to sell my kid just to feed him. Then my kid will turn around and sue the dog for stealing his bed. And if I know my dog, he'll counter sue in order to cover the court cost. oh man, stop me!

This ought to bung up the court system enough to cost all the tax payers a pretty penny. I'm sure every american would rather have our taxes pay the court appointed lawyers for "Fido" and "Fluffy" than protect the citizens from terrorists.

"Animals as slaves" Lets take a quick poll of all the PETA members that utilze a seeing eye dog, or ever required the assistance of a rescue dog. How many required serum from a snake bite? And then we'll ask how many are from another planet (I bet we get some takers on the last one).

All creatures of the Earth are created to serve man. Man, created in the image of God, has rights over and above all creatures of Earth. Reference the Bible.

so IF the chimp were to prevail in this suit...and there is any $'s left after the lawyer's cut....how and what will he/she spend it on?....Easy to get the chimp a credit card...so then a bank account?...some form of ID...then probably be able to vote, too. There are fundamental differences between humans and animals....reference the biblical quote above. Let's hope this one is thrown out!

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      This Freak?   Jam Ferg poses with his fish after TWRA officials certified its weight.

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"
