Food for thought.
Polluting the English Language to Justify Slaughter
Commentary by Captain Paul Watson



"For years I have been annoyed at some of the terminology used in conservation and environmental circles.

I think we should consciously try to think about changing the words we use. We need to put an end to the utilitarian, consumeristic jargon that is employed to justify ecological exploitation and the infliction of cruelty on nonhuman species.

Let's start with the Canadian seal hunt. This is not really a hunt when you think about it. No one is tracking, stalking, or pursuing seals. The sealers merely walk through a nursery of defenseless seal pups and whack them on the head.

The little fellas can't escape, they can't swim, and they can't defend themselves. Let's call it what it is – a slaughter or a massacre. I like to call it the Canadian National Obscenity.

And you don't harvest seals or fish or any other animal. That word has to go. You harvest corn, oranges, or apples but not seals or fish. I notice farmers don't even use the term for cows or pigs. They slaughter cows and pigs. They don't harvest them. So, why the use of this word? It's just another attempt to remove the ugliness of their actions from the language.

The Canadian government has even tried to label baby seals as adults by defining an adult as any seal over three weeks old. It seems to me that any seal that can't swim, can't escape, and is helpless on an ice floe at three weeks of age qualifies as a baby seal.more stuffCollapse )

big businesses scare me
Item 1: Love Canal. From 1942 to 1953, the Hooker Chemical Company dumped more than 20,000 tons of toxic chemical waste into the Love Canal. Hooker sold the dump site to the local board of education in 1953 for $1.00. An elementary school and playground were built on the site, followed by housing development. For at least 20 years prior to 1977, toxic chemicals had been seeping through to the land surface. However, in 1977, highly toxic black sludge began seeping into the cellars of the school and nearby residences. Tests showed the presence of 82 chemicals in the air, water, and soil of Love Canal. Among them were 12 known carcinogens, including dioxin, one of the deadliest substances ever made by man. There is evidence that Hooker Chemical knew of the problem as far back as 1958 but decided not to warn local health Officials. Hooker decided not to inform health officials because cleanup costs would have increased from $4 million to $50 million. Knowledge of the existence of chemicals in the area caused a financial hardship for residents. Once word of the contamination got out, their homes became worthless. More damaging, tests revealed that the inhabitants of the area had disproportionately high rates of birth defects, miscarriages, chromosomal abnormalities, liver disorders, respiratory and urinary diseases, epilepsy, and suicide. In one neighborhood a few blocks from Love Canal, a survey by the homeowners’ association revealed that only 1 of the 15 pregnancies begun in 1979 ended in a birth of a healthy baby. Four ended in miscarriages, 2 babies were stillborn, and 9 others were born deformed. There is evidence all across the US that Love Canal was not unique.

you can lump buisnessmen into that statement alsoCollapse )

a sad day for animals...
animal activists were convicted for harassing a company

how much bs is that. harassing. what pansies. ANYWAYS

they were trying to stop things like this:

puppy beatings

and this:







i'm sorry to flood your friends pages with pictures such as these, but i want people to know that there are still companies that needlessly hurt the animal subjects in their labs. you may argue night and day that animal testing is right/wrong for whatever reason you wish, but there is absolutely no need to beat or hurt the animals just because they dislike being caged and experimented on. these people shouldnt be beating them, they should be thanking them for using their lives for research that is usually worthless and not useful to humans.

if you would like to help, please consider forwarding this info to friends or others.
also, you can find more info here:

SD House Approves Abortion Ban
The South Dakota House has passed a bill that would nearly ban all abortions in the state, ushering the issue to the state Senate.

Supporters are pushing the measure in hopes of drawing a legal challenge that will cause the US Supreme Court to reverse its 1973 decision legalizing abortion.

The bill banning all abortions in South Dakota was passed 47-to-22 in the House.

Amendments aimed at carving out exemptions for rape, incest and the health of women were rejected.

The bill does contain a loophole that allows abortions if women are in danger of dying. Doctors who do those abortions could not be prosecuted.
