Duhhhhh, ya think?
"YUMMMMmmmminsertMMMMoreblahblahbahsheremmmmmmmm mmmMr. Loves a Good Barbeque!"--insertyucks=NOTfunnymrpresidenthere--who doesn't seem to care either as they are sweeping it under the rug so far as they always seem to do.
I am not buying it.
Just like Gore and Oprah, they can sit around with Obama and discuss the Health Care Crisis, Global Warming, and School Shootings over some happy meat at their fancy balls with their silver forks. And it is not like he doesn't know.
"The most violent weapon on earth is the table fork" Gandhi
"Even Barack Obama commented on the Agriprocessors ethical black hole on a campaign stop in Davenport, IA, remarking, "They have kids in there wielding buzz saws and cleavers. It's ridiculous."
Yes, table forks, buzz saws and cleavers. It's ridiculous.
“All ancient philosophy was oriented toward the simplicity of life and taught a certain kind of modesty in one’s need. In light of this, the few philosophic vegetarians have done more for mankind than all new philosophers, and as long as philosophers do not take courage to seek out a totally changed way of life and to demonstrate it by their example, they are worth nothing.” Nietzsche
Nietzsche, Warwak, and the World are calling you out Obama.
Time to go vegan.
It's not rocket science, connect the dots.
I mean, if Warwak can do it, you certainly can. If I can, anyone can.
As long as public schools serve children milk and chopped-up animals for lunch, students will disrespect life. School shootings are a testament how well children learn respect, responsibility, and love from those they trust to care for them.
It is not just your forks, buzz saws and cleavers that bothers me Mr President. You are a robber of life.
DAVE WARWAK: I feel ill.
SENATOR OBAMA: But if you talk to sportsmen in my home state of Illinois, they will tell you that I've always been a forceful advocate on behalf of the rights of sportsmen, on behalf of access for sportsmen and hunters. I've been somebody who, well before the recent Supreme Court case, stated my belief that the Second Amendment was an individual right.
Meanwhile, we have it from the other end. Bend over while they stick it in a little farther.
KURTZ: Just briefly, both the "New Republic" and the "Washington Monthly" say you should run for president in 2004 as a Democrat. I know you're not going to do that. You've said you're going to stay in the Republican ...Why all the resistance to change? In the end, it really comes down to a silly absurd irrational tradition/condition of "Hereditary Ignorance" that must be continued at all costs. What costs? Our children? Our future? Our humanity?
KURTZ: Vegetarian ticket?
KURTZ: But are you hypnotizing these people? Liberal magazines coming out for John McCain?
MCCAIN: I think you could define motives for that more than I can, but sometimes it's a way to keep circulation up.
SENATOR OBAMA: The important point is that I am very mindful of the fact that sportsmen in America may have gone hunting with their fathers, their grandfathers, their mothers, their grandmothers, and that this is part of a tradition and a way of life that has to be preserved. And there's nothing that I will do as president of the United States that will in any way encroach on the ability of sportsmen to continue that tradition.That is some messed up logic Mr. President! Incest and other forms of abuse have been passed down over the ages as well, ... from their fathers, their grandfathers, their mothers, their grandmothers. And your point is?
Just because a practice is tradition and a "way of life" has nothing to do with whether the crimes should be preserved over time or not. What does matter is, ... that they stop today.
"I think that having a head of the Department of Interior who doesn't understand hunting and fishing would be a problem," Obama
"I think that having a head of the Department of Interior who doesn't understand how wrong/unethical hunting and fishing really is, would be a huge problem. Even more problematic would be a President who didn't understand the great value of life and the pursuit of happiness" Warwak
So much for real change.
Are the things that matter most better with your "promise and hope" of great change, or are they in reality just empty words? The song remains the same.
This is the most pressing serious issue there ever was--a matter of life and death--that attacks the roots of most of our despair; the "big idea" that can't be tossed aside for some minor consideration given the gravity and late hour of our dilemmas.
Why argue it? We know how to use the internet and are not stupid. Murder is murder, plain and stupid as the happy meat on your plate Barack Obama.
Hunting; the practice of pursuing animals for food, recreation, or trade.
(A practice Obama proudly supports in his conviction to "not get involved" in abolition)
Humane; courteous or obliging towards humans and animals.
(Behaviors Obama casts aside in favor of his un-evolved world view)
I see no connection at all; however, I do see patterns. Patterns of apathy. Patterns of convenient hereditary ignorance. Patterns of sweeping things under the rug. Patterns of speciesism. Patterns of empty words. Patterns of disconnect. Patterns of selfishness. Patterns of slavery. Patterns of torture. Patterns of murder. Patterns of the holocaust. Patterns of moral bankruptcy.
Obama = Not humane
Warwak = Not satisfied
"The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it" Albert Einstein
"There's nothing that I will do as president of the United States that will in any way encroach on the ability of sportsmen to continue that tradition" Barack Obama
Obama delivered empty words to fool me into voting for him. Yes, I was fooled. How many more times will I fall for politicians who lie just for our votes?
"I think how we treat our animals reflects how we treat each other. It's very important that we have a president who is mindful of the cruelty that is perpetrated on animals." Barack Obama
Insert more---blah, blah, blahs---here.
Actions, words, promises, and intentions are all very different concepts.
It is not a "personal choice" when you are eating my friends and you are ruining my world. When you made your "personal choice", did you ask the animal if you could confine, torture, and murder him or her? When you made your "personal choice", did you ask me if I mind all your pollution and devastation? My tax money subsidizes your "personal choice". Just because we personally make selfish choices does not make them "personal choices."
"Never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society's punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way." Martin Luther King, Jr.
"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated" Mahatma Gandhi
So much for greatness and moral progress.
Meat-eating is a dangerous activity. Margaret Mead wrote, “One of the most dangerous things that can happen to a child is to kill or torture an animal and get away with it”. Getting away with murder is a terrible thing in itself, rewarding children with happy meat and father and son "traditional" hunting trips is a crime against humanity. Obama guilty as charged.
Stop all your crying, it's time to take away your baby bottle (humans are the only species to drink milk beyond infancy) and your evil toys. You have been a very bad boy for the past 2500 years.
"If people let the government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as the souls who live under tyranny." Thomas Jefferson (1778)
