When Animal rights protesters get it wrong , PETA is the leading force.

THEY oppose kids keeping goldfish. They oppose people riding horses. They even oppose blind people using guide dogs.
But who would have thought that some so-called animal rights groups would end up promoting animal cruelty?
Back off PETA!!
That is exactly what has happened with the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animal (PETA) protests calling for an immediate ban to mulesing.
It is not the first time this organisation has been on the absurd side of an argument.
The reason for mulesing is simple - it prevents the sheep from being killed by flesh-eating maggots.
Our merino sheep were developed through selective breeding, some time around 1870 - about the same time the blowfly made it here from South Africa.
The folds in the breach of the merino's skin together with the introduction of the blowfly became a lethal combination, creating a new disease: flystrike, where the folds in the skin become infested with maggots and the sheep dies a slow and painful death.
That's why mulesing was first introduced. Removing some of the wool and skin around the breach prevents the sheep being eaten alive. Farmers don't enjoy doing it, but the alternative is far worse.
The American-based organisation PETA knew that Australian industry had agreed to a 2010 phase-out of the practice to provide time to develop alternatives to mulesing.
Some of the alternatives being developed have involved clips, sprays and selective breeding. But then earlier this year PETA decided to embark on a campaign which, if successful, will only cause more sheep to die through flystrike.
They called for mulesing to be banned immediately. Then they went to different retailers around the world and tried to talk them into boycotting Australian wool because we had not met our 2010 deadline.
That's right. PETA complained that a 2010 deadline had not been met in 2008. Industry is confident it is on track to have alternatives in place for 2010. That allows us to work towards improving animal welfare while still supplying the best quality wool in the world. In the meantime, extremist organisations should drop their attacks on Aussie farmers.
If PETA had its way and wool growers stopped mulesing today, we'd see an immediate rise in the number of sheep dying through flystrike. It's yet another case of extremists harming the cause they claim to support.
Foot in mouth PETA Protesters have enough problems to follow up within the North American sector of their operations, cruelty within their Zoos and circuses, the problem of the clubbing of harp seals, the KFC Chicken slaughter methods just to name a few.
I suggest PETA concentrate on the stinking mess in their own stuffed up poxing Cuntry, like curbing the activities of the raving loonies who hunt animals for fun. I suppose the answer made by a Sth Carolina cab driver to me back a bit was when its Quiet on Sundays its coon shooting time.
So why is Australia copping all this Shite. Australia is the third largest Sheep producer in our world, China is the largest and New Zealand the 2nd largest.
Australia is 'Not' the only country involved in this 'Mulesing ' thingy or haven't the PETA Loonies travelled further than OZ.
Mulesing. You could describe it as an equal to a tetanus shot or a cholera or yellow fever inoculation ( I have had a few) and they can be painful for a while , but you know you are not going to catch that dreaded lergy, and as for the sheep an ass full of maggots which is the choice of PETA for our Australian Sheep. Are these PETA Ites; Seventh day wonders as well?
I suggest that PETA travel to China to take a dekko at what is happening there. but that Bonehead Bush would soon drop the lid on that Idea , "Can't antagonize the yellow hordes, never know what might happen".

its all about business
no body really cares for animals or man

the Americans are facing competition from China and India
Labor costs in india and china are only 10 to 15 % of that in USA and UK

so they raised the bogey of child labor

and SA 8000
equitable wage
working hours, etc

Tight Skirt, Bus Stop

One day, at a bus stop there was a girl who was wearing a skintight miniskirt. When the bus arrived and it was her turn to get on, she realized that her skirt was so tight she couldn't get her foot high enough to reach to step.
Thinking it would give her enough slack to raise her leg, she reached back and unzipped her skirt a little. She still could not reach the step. Embarrassed, she reached back once again to unzip it a little more. Still, she couldn't reach the step.
So, with her skirt zipper halfway down, she reached back and unzipped her skirt all the way. Thinking that she could get on the step now, she lifted up her leg only to realize that she still couldn't reach the step.
So, seeing how embarrassed the girl was, the man standing behind her put his hands around her waist and lifted her up on to the first step of the bus. The girl turned around furiously and said, "How dare you touch my body that way, I don't even know you!"
Shocked, the man says, "Well, ma'am, after you reached around and unzipped my fly three times

Mmmm! They say a picture of beauty can speak a thousand words of pleasure...

Well every time a picture of you comes into my mind...

damn I find myself getting lost in so much pleasure and desire...that without hesitation I feel my dark c&&& getting excited for you...Wanting you, needing you...and when you're not here I find myself touching myself for you...I get lost in the realms of wanting my lips pressed against your lips...as our tongues begin to explore the hidden pleasure zones...

Damn just sitting here with my eyes closed I can feel how soft and warm you are to me...as I gently let my tongue explore the essences of your soft and warm lips...letting my tongue trace your lips, gently resting them against yours...I can feel your body heat warming up to me...wanting to give into the pleasures you're feeling..."I Often Find Myself Fantasizing About You!"

It would be nice if they could use their brains to come up with a more humane way of treating flystrike ... but I agree that leaving the sheep ... (ie) a total ban, is not practical.

PETA is an embarrassment to this country. They make me cringe how stupid some Americans are.

One thing that's clear about PETA - they are all white upper-class and upper-middle class Americans with easy lives, who come from a very shallow world and don't realize that there are real issues in the world.

These are the same ass clowns that are in the anti-gun movement in this country, by the way.

Must be a year or so ago since we crossed swords. I note your last para.
There were very few sighs of reverance in Oz for your patron saint of musketry Chas Heston on hearing he was on his journey to the great armoury in Hades.
The anti gun lobby is not as vocal here in Oz as in Unclesamland, being there are fewer opportunities available to acquire firearms, I'll concede that it is none of my damn business to suggest how and when Americans should shoot their fellow citizen.

Well at least we both have an axe to grind when it comes to dealing with the idiosyncrasies of PETA- dogmania at is best.
Well Zom its nice to have you call. dont leave it too long til next time.
Have a pleasant day.

The Scottie Dog Who Knew Karate

There once was a young couple who lived in a town filled with crime. After three neighbors' houses had been robbed, the couple decided to get a guard dog.
So one day the wife went to the pet store and said, "I need a good guard dog."
And the clerk replied, "Sorry, we're all sold out. All we have left is this little Scottie dog. But he knows karate."
The wife didn't believe him so he said to the dog, "Karate that chair."
The dog went up to the chair and broke it into pieces, then he said to the dog, "Karate that table." The dog went up to the table and broke it in half.
So the wife bought the dog and took it home to her husband who was expecting a big guard dog. But then she told her husband that it knew karate, and he said "Karate my ass!"

ANZACS believe that it is a form of complement to be referred to diggers, because to be of any merit you had to be very good at this hard job, and to be regarded as diggers was due to there skill at their job.

While New Zealanders would call each other "Digger", all other nationalities, including Australians, tended to call them "Kiwis". The equivalent slang for a British soldier was "Tommy" from Tommy Atkins. However, while the Anzacs would happily refer to themselves as "Diggers", British soldiers generally resented being called "Tommy".

Inzamam ul haq the Pakistani cricketer comes to mind as a persistant Nose Picker, he spits a lot too, but not as much as fellow nose picker Ricky Ponting whose gobs on the cricket pitch are enough to make any ball swing.
The NZ Cricket capt and spinner gobs a lot too, but not as often as he scratches his crutch
