Now PETA is upset with Obama for killing a fly in his interview. They said he could've used a bug vacuum to catch the fly and release it outside.

I'm glad they came out with this statement because all the newscasters are making fun of PETA about how ridiculous they are.

Wow, I finally did something PETA would be happy with me about!  I fed a bunch of flies a dead rat that I poisoned and then shot.  Oh, wait a minute, they might be upset about the dead rat, wonder what their method for disposing of them would be??????

it's obvious that background checks should be performed on all PETA members before entering fairgrounds or whatever since they are representing something, and if they don't, they should be fined for trespassing, harassment and a variety of other offenses.

simple, what's good for the goose is good for the gander.

have them wear special easy to see exhibotor badges with contact info.

course no one will stand up to them, least of all elected officials.

Yeah, PETA might get mad that I treat my calves better than I treat myself most of the time.  I mean, the fact that they eat better, sleep more, and are under fans when it's 100 degrees outside at a show shows that I really don't care about my calves.  I wonder what PETA would think about that?

PETA seeks 'cow empathy museum' at site of closing dairy

PORTSMOUTH

PETA has an idea for the Pet Dairy milk-production plant thats closing in August: Turn it into a cow empathy museum.

The Norfolk-based animal rights group sent a letter today to Gregg Engles, the CEO of Dean Foods Co., which owns Pet Dairy, asking to lease the building on Turnpike Road.

The museum would convert a building built upon cruelty into a tribute to compassion and kindness, wrote Tracy Reiman, PETAs executive vice president.

Reiman said in the letter than the Cow Empathy Museum would have educational displays that highlight facts such as that cows are forcefully impregnated every nine months ... in order for humans to constantly milk them. Interactive displays would include being crammed into a crate to simulate the life of a calf raised for veal.

Dean Foods announced Monday that it would close the plant in August and lay off about 100 people.

PETAs suggestion came a day after the group chided President Obama for squashing a fly during a TV interview.

enough to take everything you have.   -- Thomas Jefferson
