Do a little good. [Mar. 26th, 2009|02:51 pm]
[mood |sadsad]
[music |A Haunting]

Ya'll know I don't do petitions very often, but I'm so disgusted by this Monster, I hope you will really consider signing this, and passing it on.


Here's what you would be signing:

Michael Vick has openly admitted to the fighting, torture, and murder of many pitbulls on his land in Virginia.  These dogs were not only fought but murdered in some of the most brutal ways-beating, drowning, hanging, and even electrocution.  For the horrible crimes that Michael Vick has committed, he was sentenced to a mere 23 months in prison, and now his lawyers are announcing that he should be out of prison and in a halfway house any day now.  This petition is to encourage the NFL to not reinstate Michael Vick into the NFL EVER!  Professional Athletes are Role Models to our Nations youth, whether they want to be or not.  Young children look up to them and emulate them.  Michael Vick should never be allowed to play professional football again.  To read more about the Michael Vick dogs go to http://vault.sportsillustrated.cnn.com/vault/article/magazine/MAG1150095/index.htm


What are your thoughts on animal cruelty? On dog fighting?

And one of my journallers d4b needs your help! For those that have filming capabilities, please consider doing this, from him:


" Hi, I’m David Beroff.
I’m launching my new site, EnglishWithDavid.com, and I need your help. I will be creating a video ad for the site, and I need to show other people chatting.
So, I need a video of you, chatting with someone off-camera. Please wear a headset and/or earphones and a microphone. (The other person does not have to exist; you can pretend!)
Ironically, you don’t even have to speak English, since I will be deleting your audio.
You must keep your words family-friendly, in case someone can read your lips. Needless to say, your appearance must also be family-friendly, i.e., no nudity, etc.
I need at least 30 seconds of raw (unedited) video as follows:
• At least ten seconds of you looking directly at the camera. Half the time, you are “listening”: Nod your head, smile, react, but don’t say anything. The other half of the time, smile and speak enthusiastically. Use your hands animatedly, if doing so is natural for you and the way you usually speak.
• At least ten seconds of the same, with you looking off-camera, slightly to the right.
• At least ten seconds of the same, with you looking off-camera, slightly to the left.
I will retain full rights to your work, which means I have the right to do whatever I please with it, including doing nothing.
Send the video to me, David (at) Beroff.com, using the YouSendIt.com service.

Thank you very much!"

I'll be doing more advertising for those of you that need it, so if you want me to pimp out your business, send me an email at IMRandomposting@aol.com

I'm glad there are still people out there who stand up for what they believe in. I stand up for what I believe in but those little trucks with images of abortions AND images of tortured animals are wrong.

It's disgusting, either way, and children shouldn't be subjected to seeing that.

And yeah, I think they would. That particular reader has never been anything but level headed.

PETA is a radical group. It turns a lot of people that would be sympathetic towards animal rights issues away. It really does. I've seen it happen time and time again. Radicalism rarely results in anything positive.

The Humane society is doing alot of the work you seem to be crediting PETA for.

All groups with good intentions have their radical fringe. PETA is certainly one of them. I think the ACLU is a great organization, but there's that fringe element. I support the NRA and their defense of the second amendment, but look at some of the loonie toons speaking for them. Hell, look at MADD. Great idea. Let's try to stop drunk driving. But man...those people went nutso!

Yes, the Humane Society has done a world of good, but it's the "squeaky wheel" of PETA that is responsible for animal cruelty laws getting passed.

That reader may be level-headed, but his comment was rather asinine. Then again, I've done broad stroke things myself. I just think a story like this would naturally bring PETA into the fold. It's silly to make the statement he did. That's my opinion.

As for "children shouldn't be subjected to" arguments...we live in the real world. We can't and perhaps shouldn't shield children from ugly things. Yes, we need to protect kids, but we can't get all crazy when people do this stuff.

There are some people out there who seem to live to be offended. Don't be one of them.

Don't tell me how to live. :)

I'm quite happy with my life, and in my life, any mother fucker who tries to subject my toddler to abortion or animal cruelty images, will feel the complete force of my wrath. I will do everything I can to destroy their lives.

Luckily for them, the times I've been subjected to these images my child has not been around, if he were, they would feel suffering beyond any animal or aborted fetus ever has. :)

We're really on the same page. I think people who do that stuff are idiots. The only people who see the positive in it are the whackos in the fringe like them. Normal people who may sympathize with their beliefs are repulsed by their methods.

I'm very happy and content with life. I don't allow these people to bother me much.
