PETA's Deep and Wasteful Pockets
PETA, the safe charity rich celebrities contribute to. They must have very deep pockets, because, fresh from their failure to have Hamburg, NY change its name, it's gone after Slaughterville, Texas
to try to get them to change their name to the idiotic "Veggieville."
PETA is even offering $20,000 worth of veggie burgers to an area school if the name change goes through. But town manager Marsha Blair said on Friday the chances of passage were slim to none. "We do not intend to change the name," she told Reuters... Slaughterville was named after a family that helped settle the area in the 19th century. The family ran a dry goods store and blacksmith shop.
I guess if you can't fix something with your donors' money, why not waste it trying to get the thing to be renamed? (Plus which, isn't PETA showing an amazing contempt for history by trying to make old towns change their names?)
Is there anyone who thinks this publicity-grabbing garbage helps anyone or anything? In fact, isn't PETA making itself look stupid with every one of these incidents? And why not buy the farm animals with all that money and set them free?
Seems that'd get you in the paper too.
Come to think of it, what would happen to most farm animals were people to stop using them for food? Or is it OK with PETA if they become extinct, justas long as their meat is put to no use at all?
PETA: Making left-wing activist groups everywhere look ridiculous. Thanks, jerks.
