Obama in trouble with PETA

Earlier this week President Obama was giving an interview with CNBC. There was an uninvited guest, a fly. So, Obama does what millions of Americans do every day, he kills it.

Well, this has up set PETA according to an AP story ( PETA spokesman Bruce Friedrich said Wednesday "We support compassion even for the most curious, smallest and least sympathetic animals. We believe that people, where they can be compassionate, should be, for all animals." He went on to say that PETA supports "brushing flies away rather than killing them" and was disappointed that the President had gone ahead and squashed the pesky fly.I guess PETA has never lived or worked next to a dairy farm, or any place livestock roam.

For those of you that agree with PETA you can get a humane bug catcher for $8.00 at the PETA web site store. As for me, I will continue to deal with flies the old fashion way.

  1. OMG!!!!! Come on folks, let's get real here. The life expectancy of the common housefly is 15 to 25 days. Let's put things proper perspective here.

    Here's a fine example of typical PETA members' thinking: While on vacation in Hawaii, one of the many feral chickens had made it's way into somebody's condo via the sliding glass door off of the patio. The resident chased the chicken out of the condo and away from the patio so it would not bother the children. Upon seeing this, my freind freaked out and said that she would rather do harm to one of the kids than to see that chicken be tormented by it being chased out of the condo. I just looked at her and asked her if she would take a child's life over that of some pest fowl and she said without a doubt. The chicken had more right to life than the child! Once again, get a proper grip on the situation!
