They're Joking... Right?!

You've got to be freaking kidding me. Check out this news article:

"PETA Wishes Obama Hadn't Swatted That Fly


WASHINGTON — The group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals wants the flyswatter in chief to try taking a more humane attitude the next time he's bedeviled by a fly in the White House.

PETA is sending President Barack Obama a Katcha Bug Humane Bug Catcher, a device that allows users to trap a house fly and then release it outside.

"We support compassion even for the most curious, smallest and least sympathetic animals," PETA spokesman Bruce Friedrich said Wednesday. "We believe that people, where they can be compassionate, should be, for all animals."


During an interview for CNBC at the White House on Tuesday, a fly intruded on Obama's conversation with correspondent John Harwood.
"Get out of here," the president told the pesky insect. When it didn't, he waited for the fly to settle, put his hand up and then smacked it dead.


"Now, where were we?" Obama asked Harwood. Then he added: "That was pretty impressive, wasn't it? I got the sucker."

Friedrich said that PETA was pleased with Obama's voting record in the Senate on behalf of animal rights and noted that he has been outspoken against animal abuses.

Still, "swatting a fly on TV indicates he's not perfect," Friedrich said, "and we're happy to say that we wish he hadn't."

Deputy press secretary Josh Earnest said the White House has no comment on the matter."




Are people really that ridiculous? So they are seriously telling me that they don't even swat mosquitos? Yeah... I highly doubt that mess. Those little suckers are of the devil. And if that's the case, call me a cereal killer because I do NOT hesitate in hunting 'em down and killing 'em dead!!

Ohhh man, I totally rolled my eyes after hearing about this one. Ridiculous!

I love Baltimore! We actually go there a lot, since we live so close and have so many friends there. It's so much fun to go get a drink outside, near the Harbor! Love it!!

PETA needs to get a life. I heard this, and how they have sent the Obama's a humane bug catcher. Ok, some bugs are good but flies and cockroaches just need to die. SORRY!

O my goodness, I know there are bigger issues going on in the world people could be writing about but this. Once i read that PETA wanted to start making ice cream from human milk instead of cows, what the heck I can see it now a bunch of women sitting around in a room pumping at the same time as one says to the other.. "rough day?" no not too bad I'm working on a little"rocky road over here, what about you" nothing fancy just "vanilla"
