Don't bother writing...

Okay, I'm really pissed off right now, so forgive me if I start swearing. Earlier this year, someone posted Ingrid Newkirk's will and I sent along an email to PETA with a few requests and suggestions of my own (like if they're going to be sending her finger to the guy in charge of Barnum and Bailey, maybe they could send her middle finger to Ted Nugent. I'm sure he would appreciate it, and he could even mount it on a plaque himself). Big mistake! Yesterday, I received a large envelope in the mail with bold writing on it that said: IMPORTANT - Ms. ______ ________, you have been selected to represent the state of New York in a National Referendum. In return for your input, I've enclosed TWO FREE THANK-YOU GIFTS. I knew what this meant already; more pre-printed self adhering address labels (oh joy!). I didn't think anything of it because I'm somewhat of a political activist and assumed it had something to do with some upcoming measure.
Low and behold, when I opened the envelope, I found a survey from PETA. What the hell? It seems that, when you fill out one of their handy dandy forms online, they ask for required information, like your address. I assumed this was so they could keep track of any harassing or threatening emails, so I obliged. But instead, it seems that they put me on their mailing list. So a word of advice; if you intend to write any angry letters to PETA regarding any issues (cause I know there are some people that do even though I'm sure the majority here just ignores them), just email it straight through your regular account and don't bother using their online form. Believe me when I tell you that I'll be calling their offices today (the number's on the bottom of the survey) and it's NOT going to be a nice phone call by any means.

Michael Vick, new PETA spokesperson?

Bet you never saw this one coming:

Michael Vick is in talks to become the new spokesman for PETA.

Yea, that Michael Vick.

Yea, that PETA.

According to Ad Age, the next time you see Vick, he may be educating you on the evils of dogfighting in a People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals public service announcement.

The potential PETA spot is part of a larger PR campaign to improve the public image of the ex-Falcons phenom. And PETA is excited to sign him up.

"I can do it until I'm blue in the face and it might not convince anybody," Dan Shannon, director of youth outreach and campaigns for PETA, told adage.com. "Michael Vick sure can. He can say, 'Look, I did it, I was wrong, and it ruined my career,'"

ESPN has reported that Vick will be released from prison on May 20 and serve out the last two months of his sentence in home confinement in Virginia.

New LiveJournal goes in-depth to show Mandatory Spay/Neuter grief

Hi,

My name is Amanda, and I just created animalwrongs , a site to explain to the general populace why Mandatory Spay/Neuter Laws and other such actions would be a horrible idea, and detrimental to so many animals. I'd really appreciate it if you would spread the word about it. PETA has caused so many problems for animals, worldwide, and I thought that some of you could take up the torch, so to speak.

So, if you have an extra minute, cruise down to my LJ and check it out. Comments will also be answered and appreciated.

Amanda W.

Hey, I have to prepare a 7 minute speech against PETA this week and I was wondering what particular points people here thought would be best to talk about? Which scandals and whatnot would be best to exploit?

Thanks.

Anti-PETA

We post so much PeTA news why not give some light to the other people who are working against them? Here is a letter from the Center for Consumer Freedom (consumerfreedom.org), addressed to the neighborhood where PeTA is opening a new office building. It's mostly things we all already know about PeTA, but it's funny anyways and worth a bit of a read.
