PETA says, Give it some thought!

PETA says before you kill that bug, give it some thought first. PETA is all up in arms over Gov. Chris Christie taking care of business when a spider walked on his desk during a school visit. He did what any normal person would do. He got rid of it.

Ingrid Newkirk, president of People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals, described Christie’s killing of the spider as a thoughtless act.

“He probably did it without thinking. Some people put the spider outside, but spiders are often scary to people, and that can prevent them from pondering their worth,” Newkirk said.

Their worth? They have no meat to eat, they can make you sick or kill you. Maybe Ingrid was bitten by one. That would explain her idiotic reaction to how Christie handled the situation.


Federal Government Gone Wild

If you spent all the money in your bank account, and you didn’t plan to put any more money into it, would you close the account?

How about if the bank charged you a fee to keep that empty account open? You’d definitely close it then, right? It’s common sense.

This is going to make you mad: the federal government is paying fees on 13,712 empty bank accounts. That’s according to the Washington Post this week. And instead of closing the accounts, the federal government is paying $890,000 in fees for . . . nothing.

Where does that $890,000 come from? Your taxes.

Next time you hear a politician talk about cutting government waste, just know that he is not serious and just wants your vote, or this would never have happened. Had anyone ever kept their promise, don’t you think they would have made public their success? Have you seen such a list yet?


No ‘rest’ for Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev

No cemetery Mass, Conn, or New Jersey wants Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s body. And who can blame them? Even Imams are divided on the subject.

“I would not be willing to do a funeral for him,” said Imam Talal Eid of the Islamic Institute of Boston, a community services organization that frequently arranges funeral prayers and burials in the region. “This is a person who deliberately killed people. There is no room for him as a Muslim. He already left the fold of Islam by doing that. In the Quran it says those who will kill innocent people, they will dwell in the hellfire.”

Imam Suhaib Webb of the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center, the city’s largest mosque, had a slightly different opinion.

 “He should be buried according to the religious tradition he adheres to. His case is with God.

I agree with Suhaib. Since the religious tradition Tamerlan adheres to is exploding people in public, put him on a barge with some explosives up his ass rigged with a remote control. Give survivors of his deed the chance to take part in setting it off. It’s a win win.
