Animals Over People?

Hey folks,

I've been asked over the years how I can say in one breath, "I like Animals more than I do most people." and then say things like "If my family is starving and there is a Spotted Owl over there, we are having us a BBQ." How do I reconcile the two apparently opposite views on the topic of Animal Rights?

Well, first, I do not feel Animals have "Rights." Do I feel there should be laws to protect them from abuse? Of course. I do not think anyone has the "Right" to harm a helpless Animal. Yet, "Rights" I feel should be allotted to Humans.

Second, I DO like Animals more than most people, because they are INNOCENT. They do their Animal things without thought of Greed or Harm to others for self gain. They simply want to live, procreate, and be loved. That's it. People have Free Will and, as the Word declares, "for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth" Gen 8:21 And in Galatians 5:
19Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

20Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

21Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
Animals do not have these flaws. They just are. So, in this light, I DO like Animals more than most people.

However, I also understand that People, are more important, the most important, "things" if you will, on Earth. That's right. Human Beings ARE the most important creation on Earth. We have domination over the Earth and all things upon it. With that Right, we have a responsibility to treat kindly, and protect to a degree, those that can not protect themselves. But NEVER at the expense to Humans.

In other words, if the "Jones" Family buy a home, and start to build on it, and someone finds a Spotted Frog, or whatever, the Frog loses. Sorry. The "Jones" come before a Frog.

Our Idiot this Week, is one of those Animal First People. He is not happy with Obama. He thinks he has not done enough for "Endangered Species." I believe that the Polar Bears may still be on this list even though they are no longer Endangered. The Polar Bear Population is exploding and is greater than in the Past. Yet, they serve a political agenda.

Well, our Idiot said this.
"Species on the candidate list continue to deteriorate while waiting for care. The 251 species now under consideration for federal protection are glaring reminders that we can and should do more to safeguard our valuable natural resources."
Yes, Bob Irvin, Senior VP for Conservation at Defenders of Wildlife. According to this Piece: AP - Critics say Obama lagging on endangered species By MATTHEW DALY, Associated Press Matthew Daly, Associated Press – Fri Nov 26, 2:46 am ET
Many of the species listed as candidates for protection have been waiting for such a designation for decades, including the Oregon spotted frog, found in three West Coast states, and the eastern massasauga rattlesnake, found in nine Midwest and Great Lakes states. The frog has been a candidate for the endangered species list since 1991, the snake since 1982.
So one has been a Candidate for 20 years, and the other 30? Yet, they are still here. Why do we never hear about all those NEW Species they find all the time. Including those thought LONG extinct?

So what could I possibly, being an Animal Lover, have against the Endangered Species Lists? It is the fact, that once an Animal is listed, it is now protected by Law. In other words, the Federal Government can come in and regulate the land, take the land, control whatever anyone wants to do on the land, in the name of compassion for and the protection of, the Animal. Meanwhile, to Hell with the people in those areas.

Congratulations Bob Irvin, for attacking Obama for being equal to Bush on Protected Species YOU declare endangered, YOU are the Idiot of the Week. Not to mention, Obama doesn't care about the American People, do you REALLY think he cares about the Spotted Frog? Seriously? If you do, then you are more than well deserving of this award.

How about those Caribou?
Peter
