Crazy World:

I just have to share this with you, its priceless.
And goes to show that an ounce of common sense from common folk is worth more than a ton of "enlightenment" from the liberal intelligentsia.

Crazy World: by Charlie Daniels

The other day somebody told me that the organization, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, known by the acronym P.E.T.A. was protesting an aquarium somewhere because they were going to serve sushi at some function or other. The problem was, according to the P.E.T.A. people, live fish would be watching people eat dead fish.

Am I out of touch with everything sane and reasonable or is this not the most insane thing you’ve ever heard of?

Millions of unborn babies being murdered every year and they’re worried about fish. They act as if fish had the intelligence to even know or care about what’s going on outside their tanks. In fact if they’d throw the sushi in the tanks the fish would probably eat it themselves.

What a crazy world! Young women parade around the street naked to protest animal mistreatment. Do they honestly think that showing their naked bodies will have any effect on things at all? Heck no, it’s just another form of pornography. Do young men actually think about animals when they see a bare female body?

“Johnny see that naked woman over there, don’t it just make you want to rush out and let the elephants out of the zoo?”

Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t believe in mistreating animals. I own quite a few of them and would never allow for their mistreatment. But animals are different, they don’t think and reason. Everything they do is instinct, a response to some basic need or a reaction to something they have learned through repetition.

Animals don’t have souls, nor morals, neither are they monogamous, and could care less about all the trouble P.E.T.A. goes through for them. A bad dog would attack a P.E.T.A. person just as fast as they would attack a non-P.E.T.A. person, in essence biting the hand that protects it.

God gave man domain over all the earth and there were no stipulations about eating meat, except for certain kinds.

While I love my dogs I would never dream of having them sit down at the dinner table with the family or take one of my cows to a movie.

And how about rats, they’re animals too. Do they deserve to be left alone, immune from the exterminator’s spray, to spread their foul diseases?

And how about rattlesnakes? I think that under the general description of things reptiles would qualify as animals. If you have one living near your child’s play set should you go and talk to it and ask it not to bite your child? Or do you take a gun and blow its cotton pickin’ head off? I vote for the latter.

If P.E.T.A. people get their way we’ll all be dining on tofu and celery and the animals will be grazing on our front yards, while the buzzards roost in the TV antennas and the raccoons and squirrels will frolic in the flowerbeds.

Oh give me a home where the snail darter and spotted owl roam.

I can’t believe I said that.

Hey you P.E.T.A. folks, lighten up and enjoy life, go have a nice juicy T-bone and relax.

Pray for our troops.

What do you think?

God Bless America
