Animal Rights Group Blasts Senator’s Plan for Florida Python Hunts

Animal Rights Group Blasts Senator’s Plan for Florida Python Hunts

… officials from the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals suggested that Nelson focus on banning the import and private ownership of pythons.

“Because as long as individuals are allowed to acquire these exotic animals, they will continue to be abandoned outdoors and attack humans,” PETA said in a statement obtained by FOXNews.com. “These animals have ended up in Florida through no fault of their own, and they should be dealt with in the most humane way possible.”

You’ve gotta figure a few things about PETA:

  • They all live where it snows
  • The significance of an estimated 100,000 pythons in the Everglades ecosystem — a breeding population — has escaped them
  • They are unaware, or do not care, that the snakes are destroying the ecosystem at literally breakneck speed
  • They don’t get that these critters kill 5-foot alligators (although they don’t digest them very well)
  • They’ve gotta be up past their eyeballs in politically-correct bullshit (bulls have a right to shit, y’know), or they’d be able to understand these issues; thing is, they don’t want to understand
  • They’re either abysmally ignorant about zoology, ecology and related fields (odd, for people who are supposed to love animals), or they’re just plain stupid.

So, OK, PETA.  C’mon down and catch some fifteen-foot predators — humanely.  I’ll come along and take pictures.  I can hardly wait.  Hell, we’ll sell tickets, and donate the remains proceeds to PETA.  That’s fair.

And by the way, what’s inhumane about atomizing a snake’s head with a shotgun?  They don’t feel a thing.


The GOP’s rising neutron star

It seems to be a hot trend over the last few years for those who want to take charge of the GOP to assault science with utter disregard for the role it plays in the U.S. economy and its necessity in helping people manage disasters. In his rebuttal to the State of the Union, Jindal decided that he would continue this Quixotic tradition and decried spending money on volcano monitoring, unable to define what it means and seeming generally befuddled about why we should be doing something as silly as monitoring huge mountains that can suddenly spew out enough lava and superheated rock to destroy a city.

Palin doesn’t understand First Amendment

“If [the media] convince enough voters that that is negative campaigning, for me to call Barack Obama out on his associations,” Palin said, “then I don’t know what the future of our country would be in terms of First Amendment rights and our ability to ask questions without fear of attacks by the mainstream media.”

I’m working hard at it, but I can’t help pitying the woman a little bit.  She knows so little about government, and just keeps bulling ahead.  The hell of it is, her lunatic followers think it’s fine for a vice-presidential candidate to know nothing about civics.  (What the hell, Bubba?  I’m a good Murrican, and I never needed to study no guvverment in school.)
