This is My Space

I am a huge animal lover. I have said before and I will say it again, most of the time I like animals more then people. It is heartbreaking to see the poor animals abandoned and dying in New Orleans and if I could take more, allergies or no allergies I would. My pocketbook tells me no more pets, but if I win the lottery, watch out! I will be the old lady on the street with all the animals.
When I was a teenager I often spent helping PETA protest including one at a furrier in my town. I don't believe in hunting, I think it is terrible and cowardly to "hunt" a deer with a gun, try a bow an arrow for "sport. I don't buy into the argument that if we didn't hunt deer or bear they overpopulated and get killed anyway on the highways. Sure, they are plentiful here in NJ, but maybe the answer is STOP BUILDING MCMANSIONS ON EVERY LITTLE PIECE OF GREEN LAND WE HAVE IN NJ. NJ is crazy with that shit, nothing of my childhood remains they have build on it. Everyone knows you need three Macy's in one town, duh.

I don't wear fur, I occasionally eat meat and I do wear leather shoes ( have you ever tried to walk in snow in canvas shoes?). Am I a hypocrite? Maybe.
But I don't believe in torturing living things for vanity.

I hope you are with me.


  1. agreed, unless the animal owes me money.

  2. Will, are you still playing poker with those dogs?

    You know, everyone needs to make a choice where they draw the line. You say you support PETA and love animals, but still eat meat, and that does make you a hypocrite. When was the last time you visited www.peta.org and spent some time reading about the torturous conditions farm animals live in? Not wearing fur is easy – you don’t get any bonus points for that. Commit yourself to your beliefs and stop eating meat.

  4. Please.... PETA kills more animals than any shelter I have ever been to. Over 2,200 in 2004 alone. 86.3% of the animals PETA took in, they killed.

    Do your research on those lunatics. You will be very surprised at what you find.

    You can criticize PETA if you want (though you can't deny they're effective in raising awareness), but that doesn't change the reality of the situation for farm animals in North America. That was the point of what I had to say.

    Your criticism of PETA is inconsequential, really. Did you have anything to say about the topic at hand?

  6. I have lots and lots to say about PETA :)
