The farce of ‘Meatless Monday’ – and other animal rights fantasies

The farce of ‘Meatless Monday’ – and other animal rights fantasies

By Gene Hall

I sometimes enjoy a bowl of broccoli soup, rice and beans (though they’re a lot better with ham) or other non-meat fare.  I make it a point to never do this on PETA’s and HSUS’s pointless holiday, Meatless Monday.  Perhaps I would reconsider if HSUS joined me in Sirloin Saturday, Filet Mignon Friday, T-Bone Tuesday, Chicken and Dumplings Sunday or Pork Chop Wednesday.  Sorry, I couldn’t alliterate the last two.

Domino’s Pizza ‘just says no’ to Humane Society of the United States

Domino’s Pizza ‘just says no’ to Humane Society of the United States

By Mike Barnett

Domino’s Pizza “just said no” to the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS).

Shareholders of the pizza giant overwhelmingly rejected a HSUS proposal to study ending the use of pork from suppliers who confine pregnant pigs in gestation stalls.

It’s about time one of the major fast food franchises showed some backbone to the animal rights activist group. Other fast-food companies—including Burger King, McDonald’s and Wendy’s—have caved to their demands, fearing HSUS will stir public outcry and reprisal if they don’t.

HSUS: It’s time to expose who you really are

HSUS: It’s time to expose who you really are

By Mike Barnett

Whoa, Humane Society of the United States (HSUS). Enough is enough. It’s time to expose who you really are.

That’s the intent of The Humane Society for Shelter Pets (HSSP), who launched last week with three ads in USA Today, Los Angeles Times and Chicago Tribune to show Americans the benefits of supporting their local pet shelter. That’s easier said than done with the confusion over which group does what when it comes to finding homes for and taking care of homeless companion animals.

Egg farm investigation by Humane Society of the United States misleads consumers

By Mike Barnett
I have a double-dose of fed up. The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), as well as other animal rights groups, continue to mislead the public on animal abuse and food safety with today’s release of an undercover video of an egg production facility in Texas.

On one hand I’m sick of those bad players in the livestock industry who mistreat their animals.  On the other, I’m sick of the animal rights activist groups who promote these isolated incidents as an indictment of the entire meat and egg industry.

PETA Express has loco motives

By Mike Barnett

PETA Express has loco motives. Time for agriculture to head to the station.

PETA is blowing smoke again.

Which isn’t unusual, because the radical animal rights group is always up to something. More times than not their caustic cauterwaulings are aimed at animal agriculture.

Such as their latest stunt. After learning that the national railroad Amtrak is conducting tests of a beef tallow-based biofuel on its route from Oklahoma City to Fort Worth, PETA protested. Big surprise. PETA wrote a letter to Amtrak’s CEO Joseph Boardman, offering to wrap the train with an ad touting the environmental benefits of a vegan diet. The ad would read, “Go vegan. Get on track to save the planet! PETA.”
