America vs. Walter James Palmer

Actress Mia Farrow posted the business address of Walter James Palmer, the cold blooded killer of Cecil, the most beloved African lion, but the address posted on social media was later deleted after a debate as to whether or not it was acceptable for her to have done so. I ask, why, why delete the address, and why not publish his home residence address too? To Hell with those complaining about privacy, because it doesn’t apply in this situation, period! Walter Palmer gave up any right to privacy when he took that beautiful animal’s life. Furthermore, nowadays there is no privacy, and anyone can go online and get the information that Mia posted!

I guess when someone asks what a life is worth – more specifically the life of a lion that so many people came to know and love – the answer would be a mere fifty thousand or so, and it doesn’t matter if an animal is endangered, critically endangered, or one of a few hundred left walking this planet, to some butchers that have no respect for an animal’s life, it doesn’t matter. No punishment would be too harsh for the heartless, insensitive, yellow-bellied ruffian Walter Palmer or others like him. The fear now is that he will go unpunished or not punished severely enough, which is unacceptable all the way around.

You have to wonder, though, has W. J. Palmer ever been in trouble before for any involvement in any other shady animal killings? Maybe sometime in 2006? I mean, has he been in trouble for hunting a black bear outside of a designated area, and then transporting its body elsewhere so it seemed on the up and up, and then committing perjury to a wildlife official so as not to appear as though he did anything wrong? Seems to me that this butchering dentist is obsessed with killing helpless animals, doesn’t matter what type, where it’s at, or his weapon of choice. Perhaps it’s because he has money that he feels he can get away with whatever he wants to, or maybe he figures that he has plenty enough cash to afford good attorneys for any fines he may accrue, and that he’ll just buy his way out of whatever trouble that might arise! In 2008 W. J. P. pleaded guilty to lying to a U. S. Fish & Wildlife agent about the black bear hunt in Wisconsin two years earlier!

What kind of simpleton not only takes pictures of, but proudly displays pictures of dead leopards, lions, white rhinoceroses, and any other animal that he can butcher? It’s interesting how old Walt didn’t give the murdering of Cecil a second thought until the dumb ass realized that normal people don’t take pleasure in wounding a beautiful, regal animal, such as a lion, and then leaving it to slowly suffer from the wound for two days, dying a slow, excruciating death. ecil the human-tolerant lion was actually lured out of the Hwange National Parks safety using BAIT, where Palmer shot the arrow at him that wounded him, but it wasn’t until 40 hours later that he was shot dead and Palmer claimed his prize. Now, give this a serious thought here: imagine a financially prosperous dentist deciding that he wants to be a real man, and in his narrow mind finding a big, ferocious lion to kill would make him feel like a man, a real tough guy. So this said dentist forks over a pile of cash, travels to Africa and lures one of the most loved, gentle lions in the nation out into the open where he can shoot and wound him with a bow and arrow. So what if the poor animal was wounded and would suffer for days, it only delayed the savage beast (the dentist) from claiming his prize. No, all he’d have to do was to take his time, find the lion and then he could finish him off, behead him and skin him! Cecil didn’t mind human company around him, and at times he sought out their companionship. He had come to believe that they meant him no harm. It wouldn’t surprise me one bit if the the low life didn’t wait until the poor animal was out of his misery before pleasuring himself by doing whatever he could do to Cecil and his body – the more offensive and bloody, the better to sate his never ending bloodlust!

It is not permitted here in the United states to bait deer in order to lure them out to kill them, not that it should be different according to animal, but this was a lion, how the hell is it right to lure it out only to kill it? The most vile, evil part of this is that Walter James Palmer wants people to believe that he didn’t know about Cecil, that he thought the hunt was legal but yet the trusting Cecil was lured out of the parks safety using bait! It is called bait because we all know that the animal will definitely go for it, and it’s like a lamb to slaughter! How could it make anyone feel like a tough guy, to set an animal up for guaranteed failure by using bait in order to trick it into coming out into the open? There is no easier kill.

I try never to feel hatred toward any other human being, and although it’s questionable as to whether or not Walter James Palmer is human, I feel disgust and pity for the man – if you could call him that? It’s one thing to do something horrendous and feel genuine remorse, it’s another to feign remorse because you got caught and the world’s eyes are upon you while they shake their fists in disgust. Look at this guy’s history, it speaks volumes, it shows what a bottom feeding, dishonest, offensive, self-indulgent, egotistical braggart the jackass is, and has always been. I’ll bet that his offspring will grow up to think that his blatant disregard for the lives of animals is fine and dandy too. Normal members of society loathe poachers, and from where I sit, W. J. P. is no better than any other poacher out there. The only difference may be that he attempts to hide behind the law while he stalks and slaughters any animal that he can get his paws on, and it seems that it’s been going on for a long, long time. I shudder to think of the sheer number of animals that have died and suffered ungodly wounds while dying a slow death at his hands!

Hats off to all of the celebrities that have come forward to voice their disgust and rage on Walter James Palmer butchering the lovely Cecil, especially Mia Farrow who risked backlash to take the only action that she really could have – she at least did something, and, right or wrong, that’s the only way that we can so much as hope that W. J. P. will be punished to the fullest, and that some change will be made to prevent this ever happening again. I’ve heard that there was a small group of people protesting outside of the murdering dentist’s office and that he’s received a lot of backlash – and you know what? The man deserves every bit of it! How dare he try to feed us even more of his bull dunk, how dare he try to pass the blame for his foul behavior, how dare he feign ignorance.

Brad Pitt Not Chicken To Make A Change

It’s a shame that more celebrities aren’t like Brad Pitt. It’s a shame that, in the case of the vast majority of them, they instead worry about where their next plastic surgery is going to come from, rather than stand up for causes that have little to no voice or support. If they do support anything, they will choose such causes as trying to make every last citizen on the planet support transvestites or homosexuals, when Heaven knows there is an excess of support for those types of issues, even though bigger, more critical issues are being swept under the mat!

Animals have no voice whatsoever. They are slaughtered every minute of every day; it’s for food in some cases, but it’s also often for sport, their fur, tusks, teeth, fins. You name it and they are killed for it, and that’s why so many have become, and are quickly becoming, extinct, by land, air and sea. Many groups claim that they are against animal cruelty/abuse but yet the cruelty goes on every day with nothing being done and no change in sight. Take chickens for example. Have you ever seen how those eggs you buy from the supermarket are obtained? Have you seen how the chickens that supply them for you are treated? So, now, if you do care, you might say, “well, how can I help? There’s nothing that I can do about it,” and you’d be wrong! If the consumer refused to buy eggs from chickens that were not free range (free roaming), then you would see things change real fast!

Each cage holds six to eight chickens, preventing the birds from so much as spreading their wings, laying down, or being able to turn around. Said cages are piled up, one on top of the other, and there are sometimes ten cages high! Those chickens never feel the grass underneath them, never roost the way that chickens love to, never dust their feathers like normal, free range ones can, and never scratch around the ground, which they are wired to do. The most disgusting, cruel part of all is that the chickens that supply the eggs at most all stores are the ones that live under these awful conditions! I don’t care what any chicken farmer says, there is no excuse for this type of cruel confinement, and if they can’t make a run outside for the chickens to live, while they do nothing but supply eggs for their entire lives, then the so called farmers shouldn’t be allowed to have them. Perhaps the farmers would say that they had to go and fetch the eggs after the chickens laid them, big damned deal, or maybe the eggs wouldn’t be clean enough for them and they would have to wash them, big deal. If the everyday citizen has to follow the rules (some would say rules of common sense and decency), then so should the farmers, as they chose to go into the “egg business” and are no different than anyone else. Change needs to come, and it needs to come soon.

It’s strange that children are supposedly not as mature as adults are supposed to be, and yet most children would know better. They recognize that animals should not be treated the way that many are, and should you take a child into one of the chicken buildings at one of these egg supplying farms and the child would be appalled. Kids know immediately that no one should have so many chickens piled into a small wire cage all in the name of the almighty buck. It must be that most all of these so-called chicken farmers don’t give a crap about the well being of the birds. They are too interested in grubbing up all of the eggs that they produce, as fast as they can!

It’s sad, like a cow that gives us milk, a chicken requires little and they give a lot in return. You’re getting something from them, so why not give something besides the absolute basics of a little feed and water? Many would rather sit on their eggs and hatch peeps, but they don’t have a say in that, so, at the very least, give them some fresh air and room to turn around and spread their wings. Imagine sitting in a box where you have a little head room, but your arms are at your side constantly 24/7, where you are so crammed in that you cannot turn around, and you can’t move your arms. Can you imagine how stiffened up you’d get? But what, is it acceptable just because we’re talking about chickens, just because people like eggs, the chickens can be treated as poorly as one wants? Hats off to Brad Pitt for trying to make a change. We need more people like him, celebrities that use their fame for a greater cause, who aren’t afraid to go up against big business, or any business!

Walter James Palmer: Defining Cowardice

Walter James Palmer, the “dentist” from Minnesota, is someone I’m sure you’ve heard the name of – if not, perhaps you can look in the dictionary under COWARD! It’s vermin like Walter that give all Americans a bad name. He’s a real tough guy, a hunter that loves to prove to everyone he can kill beloved, harmless, beautiful animals, whether endangered or not. This man is said to be the father of two, and I wonder how he would feel if some self-proclaimed tough guy hunted him down, and his children, too. What kind of psycho, with his extremely overblown sense of self-worth, pays to go out and kill an older animal that loved human contact, one who had survived all kinds of threats and encounters in his own environment, only to have a piece of shit – with a bow and arrow, nonetheless – lure him out and wound him, then leave him there to suffer for two entire days? Yeah, sure, by anyone’s standards that takes a real tough guy. More like an avid butcher who senselessly slaughters helpless animals. Now, it would have made Walter really something to brag about if he had gone on his so called conquest fairly, but let’s see the ball-less jerk go one-on-one with the regal Cecil and fight fair. Let’s see him use the same weapons that were available to that helpless lion!

Again I have to ask, what in God’s name would possess the most moronic, low-life that exists on this planet to go out and kill not only helpless animals unable to defend themselves, animals loved by so many, but also critically endangered animals as well? Society thinks that we only have poachers to worry about, when there are total, good for nothing, useless, simpletons like Walter Palmer. I guarantee you that, next thing you know, Walter Palmer will be claiming not to know that Cecil was so loved by so many, a typical excuse used by a senseless killer! I truly hope that the African officials do not let this butcher get away with this, or that excuses like permits, permission, ignorance, or any other lame nonsense, do not cause anyone to go easy on this so-called “man.”

Palmer, to sate his blood thirst, travels across the globe, where his money is so desperately needed that he figures he can, literally, get away with murder! Is it because we have more stringent laws in the United States, or is it because we have no exotic or endangered animals here, that this is where this behavior would not go unpunished? Where there would be such an uproar that people would probably be picketing in his front yard, all gathered to protest just outside of his home? Though, I hope that happens anyway. Low-lives like Walter don’t give the slightest damn whether an animal may be the very last of its kind. All he sees is a prize that he actually believes gains him bragging rights, because we all know that it takes one-of-a-kind skill to have a weapon that an animal doesn’t and take its life, and some real skill to leave an animal suffering. True skill it is when an animal loves human company, too! What’s worse still, or just as shameful, is that he’ll raise another generation to believe that his disgusting, cowardice, vile behavior is perfectly acceptable. This butchering dentist needs to be made an example of in the most severe ways.

I’ve heard it said that Walter James Palmer’s actions are probably his way of trying to compensate for his physical “shortcomings”, but I personally think that his problem is deep rooted, far more deviant in nature. Like the Devil himself, some wannabe tough guys like the feeling of control, and the more helpless their victims, the better. Imagine a lion, one known and loved by so many people, one that didn’t mind human company and at times sought people out, a regal, courageous lion like Cecil, trusting the humans around him that he’d become so accustom to in his twelve years of life, being lured out into the open, but thinking that he had nothing to fear from one of the humans that he’d come to trust. He must have thought none would do him harm, never knowing that laying in wait was a two legged, piece of trash predator who would put an arrow in him and then let him suffer with a mortal wound for an entire day! I’m only sorry that the premise for the new show ZOO weren’t true, that all of the animals left couldn’t band together and turn the tables on garbage like the cowardly Walter James Palmer.

I’m sure that Mr. Palmer will attempt to blow some smoke up our rear ends and feign remorse for his disgusting, murderous, senseless, slaughtering of Cecil, the sweet old lion who was part of a long-term study, and perhaps in his small mind it will convince others that he is sorry, but I’m going to have to call bull crap on that one! You see, money can buy almost anything I guess, and wealth can buy you a chance to murder Simba, but what wealth cannot buy you is respect, and it can’t make everyone else forget, or think that vile actions are acceptable! This reminds me of the other wussy “hunters” who, like W.J.P., think that they are skilled snipers and go into a small, caged area and kill lions, tigers, etc. We will all be impressed when there comes a hunt where the hunters sign off on themselves first so that no one else can be sued if they get killed, and then they are part of a fair hunt, one where all sides are even, where the two legged participants go into it with only what God gave them, as do the animals. Let these hunting tough guys (and gals) learn what a fair hunt/fight is, if they come out of it alive, and then – and only then – do they have something to brag about. W.J.Palmer and others like him remind me of the wussies that go into a fight but can only engage in it when they have four, five, or an even larger number of others to back them up in a fight with just one other person, because by themselves (like when hunting a defenseless animal) they are inferior and, though I don’t like to use the blatant word for it, are nothing more than wussies!

Laundry Detergent Test

I have always been a fan of TIDE laundry detergent but face it, it’s become so ridiculously high priced, who the heck can afford to buy it, especially when you do laundry frequently. I began to test different detergents on my own, I know that there are different things that factor in when doing a “test” like this, so I took two packs of plain white, cotton tee-shirts, each pack had five shirts. Since my test subject wears them everyday, I used those as the “test clothing”, any that might have ended up with a stain that wasn’t of the norm, I would exclude, I tested from just everyday wear (deodorant stains or pit stains, etc.).

I tried what was left of my TIDE on one and as I knew it would, it cleaned well enough, I can’t really say as far as smell because I use fabric softener. I tested ERA, it didn’t clean as well and man, it made us itch really bad, it did clean the shirt up but not as good as the TIDE did, not even close. My next test was using the regular ALL (dark blue bottle), it cleaned better than the ERA but still not as good as the tide did, perhaps it’s because I have sensitive skin, but that made me itch as well. Next up was GAIN, the smell was great, not that it matters when using fabric softener, but still it was a nice bonus, it didn’t make us itch and it cleaned just as well as the TIDE did, better yet, the price was much less than the TIDE. The next time that I was in Sam’s Club I noticed that they had their detergent and fabric softener on sale, for the price I could not resist so I bought both of them to try out. Member’s Mark ( Sam’s Club brand) Ultimate Clean liquid laundry detergent. I was floored after washing the clothes in it and seeing the tee-shirt, I actually washed another one to see if I could have been mistaken, I wasn’t. The Sam’s detergent was not only as good as the TIDE, it cleaned better! It didn’t cause any skin irritations or itching, it didn’t smell as nice as gain but the smell was okay too. The last test I conducted was using ALL Free & Clear with stain lifters, I didn’t expect it to be any different than the regular ALL detergent, I was wrong though. This ALL was the second best of them all, following the Sam’s Club detergent.

The money that you could save on laundry detergent is just hard to believe, it’s also hard to believe that any company could charge as much as they do for things like detergent. Try the Sam’s Club one on your clothes and you’ll be surprised, I got the huge bottle with the pump so it went a long way but when I went back to get more, the price had gone up, still nowhere in the ballpark as the others. It’s worth every penny for clean, decent smelling clothes that don’t make you itch or irritate your skin!
