lmao :thumbs up:lightbulb::wall::laughing::laughing::laughing:


Norfolk-based group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals wants the flyswatter in chief to try taking a more humane attitude the next time he's bedeviled by a fly in the White House.

PETA is sending President Barack Obama a Katcha Bug Humane Bug Catcher, a device that allows users to trap a house fly and then release it outside.

Yep Jainism Jim. They even wear face masks so as not to accidently inhale anything live and kill it.


Having said that...really PETA..i mean really???????? even if this is their belief, they dont need to impose it on others or be disappointed in others for not doing the same. yeesh.

I saw the Pres kill fly yesterday on the news and actually thought it was cool and laughed! He semes like kind of a cool guy. Oh no, now PETA is coming to get me!

I don't get most special interest groups...most of them seem to go to extremes to make their points...extremes that seem far worse than the act they are fighting. :shrug:

Peta, is made up of fanaticals and hypocrites.

Remember, this is the same group that used the "Greyhound" tragedy (as in bus), for a promo ad and to make a point.

And as long as they have ppl like Pam Anderson as a spokesperson, I will never take them seriously.

Just my humble opinion, :)

PETA wouldn't have been impressed with my Golden Bailey Girl! :eek: She would never waive her paw infront of her face to "swoosh" them away.

A fly in our house was fair game. Bailey would catch them in mid-air and they never had a second chance. She ate them!

Oh the circle of life. :shrug:
