Of all the depraved notions that comprise moonbattery, failure to understand that a person’s life is worth more than an animal’s is possibly the sickest.
AutoZone says the couple is using the word “zone” in its name. The company claims the Hamms can’t do that.”Do you think that’s right?” I asked. “No, of course not” Hamm replied.In the letter, AutoZone accuses this mom-and-pop business of trademark infringement. It claims consumers could confuse this family shop of being affiliated with AutoZone.As a result, the letter demands that the Hamms change the name of their business, so it does not contain the word “zone.”AutoZone also wants the Hamms to give up all of their website domain names and hand them over.”This is how we pay our bills,” William Hamm said. “This is how we raise our kids. We are a ma-and-pa shop. They’re attacking us. That’s how I feel.”
According to our sources, the lion, despite being collared, was not protected under that country’s hunting laws. Professional hunters have told us that lions are protected inside the national parks but those same lions, if outside park boundaries are, for lack of a better term, fair game.
It went on to take issue with the “hunting over bait” allegation, responding that while the lion had been killed over an animal, it was a carcass of an elephant that had been dead for some time- not a gut pile placed there for the specific purpose of luring the lion from the park- as was initially alleged by wildlife officials.
Further, the correspondence takes issue with a report that the hunter, landowner and professional hunter tried to destroy the tracking collar. In fact, it says the collar was returned to authorities as is the standard practice when collared animals are taken by hunters . If that’s the case, it wouldn’t seem that anyone involved in the hunt thought they’d broken any game laws.<<<Read More>>>

Death threats have been sent to the American dentist who killed Cecil the lion in Zimbabwe earlier this month amid growing anger over the protected animal’s slaughter.
Tributes to the butchered lion have poured in thousands of miles away at Dr Walter Palmer’s office in Bloomington, Minnesota, where protesters dressed as ‘dentist hunters’ also threw stuffed lions at his house.
But how in the world can you get teary-eyed and misty-eyed and sad over Cecil and, at the same time, participate in burying what’s happening at Planned Parenthood?
Readers must understand that Limbaugh is an animal pervert. He reveals that when he says, “My own cat was disappointed when she found out Cecil was killed. All animals are worried about this. Understand that. “
Are you kidding me? Limbaugh, who has given generously in the past to The Humane Society of the United States, thinks that animals sit around and worry about events such as the killing of a lion. Anyone who actually thinks that has something seriously wrong in their head.
But we live in a society that is really screwed up. Everything is upside-down and backwards. Limbaugh’s point that it is considered routine to murder unborn babies and sell the parts, should be well-taken. But it is not.
Landscaper Jason Scott Falbo II has been given a year in jail for running over a family of ducks with his lawnmower.
Moonbattery » Animal Rights Advocate Roland Windsor Vincent Calls for Extermination of Conservatives
Oh man! Do they come any more perverted, evil and blinded than this bubble brain?
No wonder people like Obama want all Americans to go to college, regardless of whether they can afford it or it makes any sense for them personally or professionally. The leftist brainwashing taking place on college campuses is beyond anything you will see even from the media. Beliefs and attitudes are being installed by people like Professor Steven Best of the University of Texas at El Paso, whom the Chronicle of Higher Education describes as “one of the leading scholarly voices on animal rights.”
Do you want to talk about being “offended,” whatever to hell that means. Some people claim to “take offense” to symbols and demand, in their brainwashed totalitarian ways, that such “offensive” things be banned. So, you want to act like an idiot? So can I. Here’s just a very, very, very, very tiny sampling of things that I find offensive. Many of you will have absolutely no idea as to why because you have been brainwashed otherwise and/or choose to remain blind to these things that are actually in existence for the single purpose of destroying you and I.
BUT, DON’T GO LOOK!
And I don’t mean the moose!
Some guy named Carl Safina wrote another insane book about how animals are humans. It’s called “Beyond Words.”
In an email exchange, in which there is included an invitation to interview the author, the invitation is predicated by one persons’s comment that says:
“BEYOND WORDS is a must-read! Animals think, mourn, dream, make plans, and communicate complex messages in much the same way that we do! Readers who knew this already will rejoice! Others will learn the truth! And the more of us who capture the message, the sooner we will change the world!”
The invitation itself states that: “BEYOND WORDS offers powerful and illuminating insight into the unique personalities of animals through extraordinary stories of animal joy, grief, jealousy, anger and love. Ultimately a graceful examination of humanity’s place in the world, Safina calls on us to re-evaluate our relationship to the other species around us.”
Beyond words is a most exacting title as nobody in their right mind would believe any of this shit and would run the risk of being institutionalized, by doing so, if it were not for the fact that those running the nut factories are, themselves, nuttier than a fruitcake.
This is just further proof that the American society has gone off the deep end. Only the most insane and perverse minds would write such utter nonsense and believe any of it to be of any truth.
Here’s the entire invitation to interview the author:
What Animals Think & Feel
By Carl Safina – host of PBS’s “SAVING THE OCEAN”
Prize-winning author and MacArthur Fellow Carl Safina weaves decades of field observations with exciting new discoveries in brain science that delivers enlightening insight into animal cognition in his landmark new book BEYOND WORDS: What Animals Think and Feel (Henry Holt/A John Macrae Book; on sale: July 14, 2015).
In BEYOND WORDS, readers witness elephant families navigate the pervasive drought and incidents of poaching in Kenya’s Amboseli National Park, see a free-living wolf pack sort out the aftermath of tragedy in Yellowstone National Park and finally plunge into an astonishingly peaceful society of killer whales living in the waters of the Pacific Northwest. These animals are treated as the individual characters they are, with distinct personalities and unique roles within social structures not unlike our own. Taking us into the animals’ lives and minds, Safina reports on the surprising similarities between our minds and theirs while thoughtfully tackling issues that affect us all, including habitat conservation and extinction.
BEYOND WORDS offers powerful and illuminating insight into the unique personalities of animals through extraordinary stories of animal joy, grief, jealousy, anger and love. Ultimately a graceful examination of humanity’s place in the world, Safina calls on us to re-evaluate our relationship to the other species around us.
Carl can speak about:
*How humans—with our friends, families, enemies, alliances, and career arcs—are similar to other animals that live in stable, structured groups, such as elephants, great apes, wolves, killer whales, and certain dolphins.
*How civilization has apparently dulled human senses and actually reduced our brain size, when many other animals are superhumanly alert, with ultra-fast response times and herculean physical abilities.
*How humans have inherited consciousness, thought, and feelings of fear, joy, grief, and emotional bonds from other animals, similar to the way we inherited our skeleton, organs, and nervous systems, and how it’s only a difference of degree.
*Why humans, dogs, and even crustaceans respond similarly to the same anti-anxiety and obsessive-compulsive drugs.
*What it means that humans and other animals share a remarkable capacity for grief.
*How human brains differ from those of whales and elephants, despite a relatively similar number of neurons in the brain’s cortex.
*Why humans and apes who view emotionally charged images respond with similar changes in brain and peripheral skin temperature.
*How orcas—whales born and built for a complex world of long-distance sound and long-distance travel—are affected by living in captivity.
*How the removal of Endangered Species Act protection affected the wolf population in Yellowstone National Park.
*Why humans’ strong tendency to act irrationally, to base decisions, beliefs, and actions on ideologies and things that cannot be seen, makes us different from other animals.
*How human language impacts the possibility of planetary catastrophe (and why animals that don’t communicate via human language may have the upper hand).
*Why species that have the most complex societies develop the most complex brains.
About the Author: Carl Safina is author of seven books, including SONG FOR THE BLUE OCEAN, which was a New York Times Notable Book of the Year, EYE OF THE ALBATROSS, VOYAGE OF THE TURTLE, and THE VIEW FROM LAZY POINT.
