Spying on American Citizens? Sounds Sketchy

For those of you who would like to tune in, animal rights attorney Jeff Kerr of FSAP (the Foundation to Support Animal Protection) will be on MSNBC’s Hardball with Chris Matthews tonight at 7:00 p.m. to discuss the FBI spying on PETA, Greenpeace, and other nonprofits in the name of “national security”. If you haven’t heard yet, news broke today that the FBI has been wasting American tax dollars spying on entirely legal organizations, for no reason other than that they challenge big-industry. According to the Washington Post

The papers offer no proof of PETA’s involvement in illegal activity. But more than 100 pages of heavily censored FBI files show the agency used secret informants and tracked the group’s events for years, including an animal rights conference in Washington in July 2000, a community meeting at an Indiana college in spring 2003 and a planned August 2004 protest of a celebrity fur endorser.

Is it me, or does it seem a little wacky to violate American citizens’ rights to freedom and liberty … in the name of protecting their rights to freedom and liberty? Explain THAT Big Brother!
Speaking of crazies pointing their fingers at anyone who tries to make the world a better place, KFC needs to learn the definition of the word “terrorism”, for serious. From the Brownsville Herald

In a previous story, KFC spokeswoman Bonnie Warschauer told The Associated Press that “we don’t comment on the corporate terrorist activities of PETA. They are corporate terrorists and just like the United States government, we will not negotiate with corporate terrorists.”

What’s more, the Brownsville KFC manager stated, with a straight face,

“To me, there is no difference between them and al-Qaida.”

Way to go Cleetus. Call Jonathan Blum, KFC’s Senior Vice President of PR, at 502-254-2288 and let him know that you aren’t a “terrorist” just because you have a problem with him and his company torturing animals.
For the love of all that’s holy, BONSAI KITTEN IS NOT REAL, PEOPLE. I thought that everyone knew that by now, but apparently not. Rather than forwarding that shit all over the internet like it’s going out of style, why don’t you sign this petition and pass it on? That sounds like a plan.

I don’t care what anyone says – Say Anything is ridiculously catchy. I wonder if any of them are veg? One can only hope.

    that’s so stupid. There is a big difference between peta and the al qaeda.
    The Al qaeda is a terrorist force willing to kill people for beliefs! Peta is against killing!
    ummm, y would they be so stupid! Some people go a little extreme but that doesn’t mean that they would kill anyone!
    -kisses to all my vegetarian-animal loving friends,
