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!

Love Your Cat? Then Why Are You De-Clawing Him or Her?

Some people claim that we live in a decent, humane society, and that we are progressing rather than regressing, but I challenge you to take a brutally honest look around you, then look someone directly in their eyes and try to say the same. Countless species of animals have been wiped from the face of the planet, never to walk this Earth again, and through no fault of their own either, strictly because of greedy poachers and egotistical hunters. Look at our treatment of domestic animals, the cats and dogs that so many millions of people claim to love, look at how many are killed each and every day in this country, their last minutes of life spent in a shelter cage, waiting for a loving family that never comes.

Look at house cats, look at the procedure of declawing, an excruciating, maiming, horrendous amputation that ends up many times with the cat dying in the end anyway, whether it’s from the owner getting rid of it for biting all of a sudden, or not going in the litter box because of the pain it’s left with. Look at the big cats that some morons have had declawed, since it’s too horrible for words and you have to see it for yourself to truly grasp the barbarity of it. Go to the Paws Project website and watch the video of Kona, the cougar who suffered in agony after having been declawed, see for yourself what this procedure does to cats of all types, sizes, and ages.

Want to know how good your vet is? Ask if he or she performs the declawing procedure or if the vet supports having it done. Sadly, many vets are motivated mostly by money and are all too eager to declaw whatever cats they can. Veterinarians, like our medical doctors, promise not to do harm, and yet look at the evidence of the harm done as a result of declawing. Like in the California cities where the procedure was banned, we need laws in the rest of this country to protect our pets, as God knows they can’t speak for themselves any more than they can try to bring about change. Personally, I think that the biggest problem is lack of education about the procedure – after all, look at all of the other countries around the world where the procedure is prohibited! We call ourselves the United States, we’re supposed to be so educated, we’re supposed to know better!

Please check out the website for The Paws Project, read the information provided and watch the videos, educate yourself and please pass it on to everyone you know. It’s shocking just how many people out there, even who really understand what declawing is, don’t know that it’s de-knuckling the animals and the exact devastating effects it causes. Jump on board and do your part, educate yourself and everyone you meet, if you can save even one cat from this hell, then be proud!
