    They just can't seem to keep their noses out of peoples business, no wonder
    their membership is declining... no one wants to be associated with them and
    for good reason.


    OB dinner is t'bone steaks with au gratin potatoes, corn on the cob and banana
    cream pie.

    PETA only defends the killing & eating of food that can't run away.

    That's a good line because it's funny and at it's heart it's sadly true.

    So, PETA doesn't have anything better to do these days? They've slid
    from animal advocates to out & out kooks. To think I used to admire
    what they did. They haven't had my respect in years.

    I completely agree. The person who has done more for animal welfare
    than any other is actually paid by the meat industry, Temple Grandin.

    Ironic, isn't it? OTOH, it makes a lot of sense if you have the ability
    (or curse) to see the world as animals do to try to make their last
    moments in existence as comfortable as possible. One thing's for sure -
    we should have a little more respect for that burger on our plates.

    I had a look at their web site a few days ago and saw a list of things
    they are opposed to. One of them was pronged collars for dogs. I have
    had some large and active rescue dogs for which regular collars and
    choke chains were ineffective. The prongs do not stick into the neck.
    When they pull on the leash the prongs go from lying flat to pressing
    at about a 30 degree angle to make it uncomfortable. The lat dog I had
    who wore a pronged collar loved his collar. It meant that he was going
    for a road walk on a leash, and for some reason he sometimes seemed to
    like walking on a leash better than running loose.

    Then there is the remote electronic collar that they think is cruel.
    What I think is cruel is a dog not being able to run free. My latest
    rescue was a 5 year old Malinois, a very high energy dog who showed no
    indication of ever having been trained. He was difficult to walk on a
    leash and would not come when called, though he would eventually come
    back when he felt like it. After months of training with no success, I
    broke down and spent a lot of money on a remote training collar with a
    1000 yard range. I needed the long range model because it wouldn't take
    him long to get out of range at the speed he travels.


    Sonny still gets the occasional mild correction signal. There is no way
    I would let him off the leash near the house because it is too close to
    the road, but when we go to back to the bush and fields he gets to go
    leash free. He will heel for a while, until he is told "free" and then
    he takes off for a run. He now stays within sight and, more important,
    comes when he is called.



    He loves that collar. He gets excited when he sees me getting ready to
    put it on and he is more than cooperative about putting it on. It is a
    matter of trade off. He may get the occasional mild correction, but he
    gets to run free and since he loves to run more than anything else in
    the world, the whole thing is a rewarding experience for him.

    They first got my attention back when they were advocating for lab
    animals and "milk fed" animals that were kept caged just so their meat
    would be white.

    Scientologist's get money because they make their members think they
    are crazy and that giving money to the "church" is going to fix them.

    Sure, but almost all of the other religions, even Roman Catholicism,
    have redeeming qualities. Scientology is a racket, kind of a pyramid
    scheme.

    I don't disagree at all! If "religion" were faith, "ruhroh"!
    Thankfully, faith does not necessarily rely on 'religion'!

    Nope. People will think it's near Castro & Market.

    I was also going to suggest to rename the hetero dating scene from
    "meat market" to "fruit market", but rejected it for the same reason.

    It's a conundrum, for sure. I'm a traditionalist and still like
    "Tenderloin". It's always been a hardscrabble area, why change the
    name? It would be like putting a wig on a goat.
