Cruelty to animals has gone on long enough. Punishment should be stronger. Remember Jane Goodall.
Would you beat or starve your own cat or dog? Well people out there do, and some of the most likely think it's okay, mabey their parents did, maybe their best friends do it, maybe they do it for sheer entertainment.
Punishment for animal abuse should be stronger! A person who beats, or starves a human doesnt go to jail for a few years and then just be released, they are punished, so what if its not a human, most people in the US cant even find us on the world map, or know that polar bears live in the norther hemisphere, not with the penguins in the southern. If animals could talk, I bet they could know that, humans take their rights for granted, while animals are killed for sport, just trying to live, animals don't kill for joy, some people think,"well, the lions kill the baby lions sometimes" only if they arent their child/cub, lion males, in order to keep their family in charge, they have to get rid of other males cubs.
This is an issue that I cant stay quiet on, I may be this shy kid in school, but not when animals are being harmed, after all, its their world too. Remember, my hero, and idol, Jane Goodall.
The New York State Rent laws were weakened in 1997, giving landlords loopholes and incentives to destroy affordable housing across the state (and particularly in NYC)at an unprecedented rate. It is estimated that there will be no rent-regulated apartments in NYC (read: affordable to all but the upper-middle class, no tenants' rights whatsoever) within 10-15 years under the current Rent Laws. The laws come up for renewal this June. If they are not strengthened NY State residents will continue to be displaced, evicted and face higher rents, living at the mercy of the Reals Estate market. Housing is a human right. Please tell the NY State Government that New York City and State should remain an economically diverse place that puts people before profits!
It is our wish, as citizens of The United States of America, to ensure that the attack perpetrated on September 11th, 2001, will never be forgotten by anyone. We believe that the site in New York in which many bodies of those slain still rest, is now considered by us all as a sacred place, and that we should set up a memorial there for those who lost their lives, including the passengers on flight 93 and those who were killed at the Pentagon.
We believe that this memorial should be something seen from a distance by night or by day, something that no terrorist can destroy, so that all who see it will know that we shall overcome and that this horrible tragedy has not killed our spirits, but has made us stronger.
At this very moment across the globe, people are protesting against corporations prioritizing profits over people's welfare. They argue that corporations should serve people, and not the world economy. They also argue that we are living in a world system which has been re-fashioned by the New Right over the last twenty years. These imbeciles obviously didn't do history in their Uni. studies... the "world system" has always mirrored that of the animal kingdom: SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST.
Even as far back as the Ancient Roman & Greek era, society learnt that the weak get weaker, and the strong get stronger. The stronger the army, the easier the victory. The stronger the leaders, the stronger the empire. It was often the case that the weak needed to work REALLY hard, become strong, and then succeed. Today's society is EXACTLY the same... there is the easy option of "BLAME", or there is the alternative: "EFFORT". The difference is that the "Blamers" are the weak link in today's society, being the burden for those who put in the "Effort". It is not a matter of principle. It is not a matter of money. It is a matter of justifying their weak stance in society.
If [a majority of them] leave their sheltered Uni. lives, they will EXPERIENCE what life is all about. And this is what this is all about. For them to condemn an organization like McDonalds, who recruit young people and teach them VALUES at such an age, is preposterous! It is a simple case of "Tall Poopy Syndrome"... they cut individuals down who have made the effort to become successful, because they CAN'T BE BOTHERED MAKING AN EFFORT THEMSELVES. These morons expect us to listen to them when they have had NO LIFE EXPERIENCES... operating on theories rather than facts. Taking their advice is like taking medical advice from a car salesman. Don't allow the minority to rule our democracy... a true democracy takes EVERYONE'S issues into account.
