PETA begs Obama to
include hunting ban

Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/16/2013 9:46:52 AM

Wondering if the administration is "against senseless violence and slaughter, or it isn´t," People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is making an 11th hour pitch to President Obama to include a hunting ban in his gun control measures to be unveiled Wednesday. "Americans´ views are evolving on many issues, from same-sex marriage to gun control, and the time is right to reconsider the dangerous message that the practice of killing animals for fun is acceptable and should even be protected," Tracy Reiman, PETA´s executive vice president said in a letter to Obama.

Who would have ever believed we would be reading things like this. It is really disturbing to see how many irrational, deranged people there are in this country. I don´t think even 0bama is stupid enough to try to pull off this stunt, not that he wouldn´t like to.

Why not include it? Not a single one of his EOs are constitutional or carry lawful legal authority concerning arms so ignore them all. He can appease his base and PO any low-information hunters out there at the same time, a two-fer!

The buses don´t run where PETA lives. Complete waste of ink and pixels even giving them coverage. Only encourages their inane insanity.

I don´t hunt. I have no desire to hurt any living creature though I will if threatened. That is the choice I made based primarily on spiritual beliefs.
Even so, with knuckleheads like this trying to tell me I can´t it almost makes me want to take it up.

Makes sense from the PETA standpoint.

If they´re ever going to get what they want, it will be from jugears. He doesn´t care at all for real America, so anything that be an imposition upon us, he would be the one to ask.

I think the country needs to divide into two. There is no reconciliation possible any more.

Yeah, let´s just ban hunting. That will be so humane.

Of course, when the wild animal populations boom and they quicly use up the food supplies in their habitats, there will be lots of starving and dead animals laying all over the place.

But I guess starving is a much more humane way to die to a member of PETA, since it´s ´´natural´´.

MEXICO CITY - Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto said he is "indignant" at the United States´ deportation of Mexican migrants and described U.S. lawmakers as demonstrating a "lack of conscience" in failing to pass immigration reform. In a television interview aired late on Wednesday Pena Nieto said he and U.S. President Barack Obama discussed the issue during their meeting at a North American leaders´ summit held last week in Mexico. His emboldened comments to U.S. Spanish language channel Univision followed days after his administration announced it had captured Mexico´s most wanted man, drug lord Joaquin "Shorty" Guzman.

First lady Michelle Obama unveiled a proposed new nutrition label Thursday, claiming the labels would make it easier for families to tell whether food is healthy. Because math is hard, or something. If your “nanny-state” radar is going off, it should. The new label really doesn’t appear to be much different from the old one. The “servings per container” font is larger and bolder, the “calories” section is much larger and bolder and the “percent daily value” column was moved to the left side (have to spend that tax money on something). The first lady said the serving size for many foods would be

The White House on Thursday said that President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, discussed immigration reform during their recent meeting but declined to say if the leaders had made any progress on long-delayed legislation. “I can certainly confirm that immigration was one of the topics they discussed,” said White House press secretary Jay Carney. Obama and Boehner met in the Oval Office on Tuesday for an hourlong meeting. Carney, though, refused to characterize the tone of their discussion on immigration, saying only that “there is broad agreement that this is an issue that needs to be addressed.” “We´ve seen that in

The phenomenon of global warming has been used to explain many things, but now Mother Jones is quoting a study saying it might cause more rapes of women. Matthew Ranson, an economist, avers that there is a historical connection between warmer temperatures and increased crime. He said, "Looking at the past, we see a strong relationship between temperature and crime. We think that is likely to continue in the future." Ranson utilized the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change´s projections of the effects of global warming in the U.S. to estimate that between 2010 and 2099, warmer temperatures will "cause" an

Representative Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY) and Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) are asking President Obama to designate $10 million for "gun violence research." According to The Queens Gazette, Maloney "joined with gun violence victims, advocates, and union leaders" to request the money on February 22. She said, "Gun violence costs our country an estimated $174 billion every year," adding that "the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has a research plan in place. Now they need the funding to move forward." Maloney also joined Markey in sending a more formal request letter to President Obama. On February 4 Breitbart News reported that gun control proponents

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio took off the gloves in his battle with education reformers, rescinding an agreement for the city to share space with several public charter schools. The move undercuts educators, parents and some 700 students at four schools, including Harlem Success 4, one of the public charter school movement’s top success stories, and two set to open in the fall. While agreements at those schools were rescinded, expansion of a fourth school was also blocked. The schools were to operate rent-free in city-owned facilities under deals backed by former Mayor Michael Bloomberg, an ardent supporter of

A federal judge in Kentucky took a final step Thursday forcing the state to begin recognizing same-sex marriages performed outside the state. U.S. District Judge John Heyburn was following through on his ruling earlier this month that found a portion of the state´s constitution, which bans the recognition of gay marriage, violates the U.S. Constitution. On Thursday, the judge wrote the amendment was unlawful and "void and unenforceable." The order came shortly after the Kentucky attorney general requested the ruling be delayed for 90 days to give defendants time to appeal and the state time to determine the best way to implement the

Two years and a day after their son’s death, the parents of Trayvon Martin visited the White House on Thursday and were in the audience as President Obama announced a new initiative designed to keep young minority men on the right path.

The man who shot and killed Trayvon, George Zimmerman, was found not guilty of murder in a Florida trial last year. The prosecution contended that Mr. Zimmerman singled out Trayvon because of

PHOENIX — Ending a day that cast a glaring national spotlight on Arizona, Gov. Jan Brewer, a Republican, vetoed a bill on Wednesday that would have given business owners the right to refuse service to gay men, lesbians and other people on religious grounds. Her action came amid mounting pressure from Arizona business leaders, who said the bill would be a financial disaster for the state and would harm its reputation.

If you listen to the chattering class in Washington, D.C., Hillary Clinton is a virtual certainty for the 2016 Democratic nomination, and the front runner in the next presidential race. But in private, rumors persist that the former Secretary of State may not even be capable of making it to Iowa and New Hampshire. Clinton, these skeptics often say, will not run for president again because of health concerns. These ubiquitous rumors of her health have been fueled in part by the supermarket tabloids.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is being hammered by Republican lawmakers after he claimed on the Senate floor that all the ObamaCare "horror stories" being circulated are untrue. Reid tried to clarify his remarks late Wednesday by saying he was only referring to the “vast majority” of stories featured in ads funded by Americans for Prosperity, a conservative group, and not the complaints of everyday Americans. However, he added fuel to the fire by continuing to slam the group’s backers, the Koch brothers, calling them “un-American.” Americans for Prosperity President Tim Phillips, in response, said Reid had effectively

A chilling video of Maryland police silencing an innocent student who was recording the arrests of two other people has civil libertarians outraged. The arrests were made at night on the streets of Towson, Maryland. A University of Maryland-Baltimore County student who witnessed the arrests decided to record them using his cell phone. The student, 21-year-old Sergio Gutierrez, was soon approached by officers who objected — wrongly — to his actions. Gutierrez repeatedly told the officers that he knew he had the right to film them, but the cops were prepared to use any excuse to shut him down. First they told
