Sucking on Cow-Teats

Ever heard someone promote eating grass-fed beef because it’s natural? It’s true, isn’t it? Uh. Sorta. The way we kill them certainly isn’t. But here’s my question: Are they eating dairy products or drinking cows’ milk? If proponents of eating … Continue reading

Utah Governor Tries to Throw Out My Lawsuit. Foolish.

E6 Cattle Co. in Hart, Texas, where workers bashed the heads of calves with pickaxes by direction of owner. After Hauff met with prosecutors, charges were filed against six workers, the foreman, and the owner.

Talk about unconvincing!

The State of Utah filed a motion to dismiss our landmark “ag gag” lawsuit on Friday.

Lame.

Our case challenges the state’s ag gag law. It’s a clear violation of our rights and makes whistleblowers and watchdogs “criminals” merely for documenting cruelty to animals and using the evidence to expose the abusers. The lawsuit was filed on behalf of myself and the following: ALDF, PETA, the political journal CounterPunch, journalists Will Potter and Jesse Fruhwirth, and professor James McWilliams.

We all rely on undercover investigations in our professional work. In our own way, each of us exposes egregious cruelty to animals and, of course, food safety violations. Continue reading

Since Citizens Expect the Worst, Things Will Get Worse

Her name is Patience (if this is indeed her). She’s held prisoner at Dickerson Park Zoo. She just accidentally crushed a jailer of hers. He’d been living off of her and others’ captivity, sources state, for over 30 years.

UPDATE: This is indeed the zoo I was at for PETA and they have a shocking history of treating their animals like dirty laundry. 

Dickerson Park – I believe I have a history of this zoo’s violence toward animals during my time as Animals in Entertainment Specialist with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals [Update: it is the place]. I’ll have to double check that it was the place and tell y’all about it [Update: I did and it is the place]. The initial article I read states: Continue reading

GOP = Nobody Be Liking You Right Now Cuz You Turned Off Our GOV

George Horace Gallup, founder of the Gallup polls.

Who ever gets to see Mr. Gallup? Who takes George’s picture? And posts it “all up on they page?” I do (though, I did not snap this candid of Horace, admittedly): George Horace Gallup, founder of the Gallup polls. Photo credit: Wikipedia.

Says Gallup:

As the government shutdown continues, the GOP’s favorable rating is now 28%, the lowest Gallup has measured for either party in its trend since 1992. The Democratic Party’s favorability of 43% is down slightly from last month.

Anne Frank was a Stupid Jew. The Franks, Judas, Faggots. Part I.

The other night I dreamt repeatedly (or ongoing – in various states of consciousness) about Anne Frank and her family. I know why she was on my mind. I have been thinking about her and what it must have been … Continue reading
