Animals Killed In The UK Each Year ..
Over 10 million pigs, more than 15 million sheep, and nearly 3 million cattle.
16 million turkeys, 14 million ducks and geese, and 975 million broiler chickens.
40 million so-called ‘spent’ hens, and over 40 million male baby chicks.
More than 7 billion fish and shellfish.
It’s hard to understand why so many people don’t care about the barbaric massacre of the innocents that goes on day and night in our midst, and beyond understanding why so many people put their ‘taste’ above the suffering and the brutal slaughter of so many helpless, gentle animals.

When exactly will we become civilised and stop behaving like savages, and start behaving like intelligent, decent human beings ?

Our governments are full of arrogant career politicians, interested only in themselves, motivated only by money, and not caring a damn about the welfare of the people or the suffering of animals.

Homelessness, Food-banks, Loan Sharks, Poverty, Crime, Millions waiting for medical treatment. The brave souls who gave their life in two world wars for a better life for those they left behind will be saddened and grieved how life is for so many today.

When it comes to having a central nervous system, and the ability to feel pain, hunger and thirst, animals are equal to humans.
Thousands of people who say they love animals sit down once or twice a day to enjoy the flesh of creatures who have been utterly deprived of everything that could make their lives worth living and who endured the awful suffering and the terror and the brutal slaughter in the abattoirs.
Those who describe animals as not having any thoughts or feelings come closer to that description than the animals they are trying to describe.

Cowards on horses with a pack of frenzied dogs force foxes from their habitat and they have no choice but to enter our towns, our gardens, and our parks, in search of food and shelter.

If they do us no harm, we must treat others, both animals and humans, as we ourselves expect to be treated.

Why should they ask me to put on a uniform and go 10,000 miles from home and drop bombs and bullets on Brown people in Vietnam while so-called Negro people in Louisville are treated like dogs and denied simple human rights? No, I’m not going 10,000 miles from home to help murder and burn another poor nation simply to continue the domination of white slave masters of the darker people the world over. This is the day when such evils must come to an end.
The real enemy of my people is here.
My conscience won’t let me go shoot my brother, or some darker people, or some poor hungry people in the mud for big powerful America. And shoot them for what? They never called me nigger, they never lynched me, they didn’t put no dogs on me, they didn’t rob me of my nationality, rape and kill my mother and father. Shoot them for what? How do I got to go shoot them, poor little black people, little babies, children, and women? How can I shoot them poor people? Just take me to jail.
( Muhammad Ali )

The EU, urged on by the US, re-started the Cold War by encouraging Russia’s neighbours to join the EU as if the USSR still existed, and aggressively sought to detach Ukraine from Russia and draw her into the EU orbit, knowing very well that this would infuriate Moscow.
Russia could have been our friend if we had wanted that. We rightly viewed the old Soviet Union as a global menace to freedom. But Russia is no such thing.. Just a major regional power sick of being humiliated and pushed around by ignorant outsiders.

Both people and animals hear you on the level you speak to them from.
Speak from your heart, and they will hear with their heart.

For those who don’t understand “Dominion over the animals”, it simply means to take care of, not to dominate.

When we have governments who allow ’farmers’ to treat animals like shit, what chance do the poor souls have ?

If the God you worship tells you to murder another living being, then you are either worshipping the wrong God, or you have been seduced by the Devil. You have been given Free Will to make choices and decide what is right and what is wrong.. WAKE UP !

2017, and the world is still full of savages.. Those who do not care about the consequences of their actions, or the pain and suffering they inflict on others.. And many are crawling about in Government offices.

Don’t kid yourself.. Animals in zoos hate humans. There’s nothing to love about monsters who cage and chain you.

There are millions of poor souls in the world who would love to have all your bad days.

Official figures show that 560,000 puppies are born across England every year. Battersea Dogs Home is warning that only one in ten puppies comes from licenced dog breeders. Gaping holes in UK enforcement of breeding legislation leave the door wide open for backstreet breeders.

Each year in the U.S, approximately 1.5 million shelter animals are killed, they call it euthanised, (670,000 dogs and 860,000 cats). The number has declined from approximately 2.6 million in 2011.
( American Pet Products Association 2015-2016 )

Animal abuse in any shape or form is wrong.. Some Nations openly abuse animals, others deliberately hide it.. The Western Nations should take a closer look at themselves before condemning others.

Deceiving the ignorant masses that we have animal welfare and that ‘farm’ animals are treated ‘humanely’ is simply a ploy by the blood-soaked ‘meat’ industry and its wealthy shareholders to continue making money from the simple-minded, meat-eating population.

Standing Up For The Voiceless

What I think about vivisection is that if people admit that they have the right to take or endanger the life of living beings for the benefit of many, there will be no limit to their cruelty.
( Leo Tolstoy )

The disgusting, blood-soaked ‘meat’ industry is concerned only with one thing..
Maximising profit, regardless of people’s health, and the social or environmental costs.

We consume the carcasses of creatures of like appetites, passions and organs with our own and fill the slaughterhouses daily with screams of fear and pain.
( Robert Louis Stevenson )

Nothing more strongly arouses our disgust than cannibalism, yet we make the same impression on Buddhists and vegetarians, for we feed on babies, though not our own.
( Robert Louis Stevenson )

In their behaviour towards animals, farmers and the ‘meat’ industry are Nazis.

Cock-fighting was illegal in Oklahoma, USA until 1963, when a judge ruled that chickens are not animals and therefore unprotected by anti-cruelty laws.

The problem with experiments has always been that human beings make the decisions on whether or not the animals have benefited from the treatment.
( James Randi )

We humans don’t even give token acknowledgement to the fact that we push animals off their lands.. We are the thieves and trespassers, not they.

Wildlife animals are being forced to live in closer proximity with humans.
With few alternatives available, they have no choice but to enter our towns, our gardens, and our parks, in search of food and shelter.

Animals Are Forced To Rely On Humans To Survive ..
In a perfect world, animals would be free to live their lives to the fullest.. Raising their young, enjoying their native environments and following their natural instincts.. However, domesticated dogs and cats cannot survive free in our concrete jungles, so we must take as good care of them as possible.. People with the time, money, love and patience to make a lifetime commitment to an animal can make an enormous difference by adopting from shelters or rescuing animals from a perilous life on the street.. But it is also important to stop manufacturing pets, thereby perpetuating a class of animals forced to rely on humans to survive.
( PETA )

Cruelty has cursed the human family for countless ages.. It is almost impossible for one to be cruel to animals and kind to humans.. If children are permitted to be cruel to their pets and other animals, they easily learn to get the same pleasure from the misery of fellow-humans.. Such tendencies can easily lead to crime.
( Frederic A. McGrand )

Standing up for the voiceless and what you believe in takes courage in a world determined to mock you for it.

The beef industry has contributed to more American deaths than all the wars of this century, all natural disasters and all automobile accidents combined.. If beef is your idea of real food for real people, you’d better live real close to a real good hospital.
( Neal D. Barnard, M.D. )

Results from animal tests are not transferable between species and therefore cannot guarantee product safety for humans.. In reality these tests do not provide protection for consumers from unsafe products, but rather they are used to protect corporations from legal liability.
( Herbert Gundersheimer, M.D. )

When I was twelve, I went hunting with my father and we shot a bird.. He was laying there and something struck me.. Why do we call this fun to kill this creature who was as happy as I was when I woke up this morning ?
( Marv Levy )

Humans .. The only animal in the world to fear.

An animal’s life has been sacrificed to bring you a meal.

The attitude of the farmer and the medical research scientist is ..
“Nothing matters but the convenience of man.”

The suffering which some people deliberately inflict upon animals is beyond the understanding of all good, decent people.

Anyone who tries to improve the lives of animals invariably comes in for criticism from those who believe such efforts are misplaced in a world of suffering humanity.
( Jane Goodall )

At the moment our human world is based on the suffering and destruction of millions of non-humans.. To perceive this and to do something to change it in personal and public ways is to undergo a change of perception akin to a religious conversion.. Nothing can ever be seen in quite the same way again because once you have admitted the terror and pain of other species you will, unless you resist conversion, be always aware of the endless permutations of suffering that support our society.
( Sir Arthur Conan Doyle )

The Will Of A Dog ..
When I die, please do not say, “I will never have another pet.”
Instead, go and find an unloved shelter dog, one whose life has held no joy or hope, and give my place to him.. The place I had in my human’s loving heart, my happy home, my cozy bed, and all my toys.

If any kid realised what was involved in factory farming, they would never touch meat again.. I was so moved by the intelligence, sense of fun and personality of the animals I worked with on Babe that by the end of the film I was a vegetarian.
( James Cromwell )

If your personal choices have a victim..
It is no longer a personal choice.

Man has been endowed with reason, with the power to create, so that he can add to what he’s been given.. But up to now he hasn’t been a creator, only a destroyer.. Forests keep disappearing, rivers dry up, wild lifes become extinct, the climate’s ruined and the land grows poorer and uglier every day.
( Anton Chekhov )

You say a vegan diet is extreme, but when I search for videos of your ‘food’ being produced, I see ‘Graphic Content’ warnings.

The art of angling, the cruelest, the coldest and the stupidest of pretended sports.
( Lord George Gordon Byron )

I despise and abhor the pleas on behalf of that infamous practice, vivisection.. I would rather submit to the worst of deaths, so far as pain goes, than have a single dog or cat tortured to death on the pretence of sparing me a twinge or two.
( Robert Browning )

Please Don’t Harm Me Or My Family ..
I am America’s only native marsupial.. I am an Opossum.
Some people think I look like a rat, but I am more closely related to the kangaroo and koala bears, who are also marsupials.. I clean up your environment, eat ticks, and keep snakes away.. If you leave out food, I will eat it.. I get hungry too.. I don’t have an easy life, so if you can leave table scraps and water outside for me, that would be a great help for me and my family.
I may look scary, but I don’t have rabies, and I will do you no harm.
Please don’t harm me or my family.

Eating meat is the most disgusting thing I can think of.
It’s like biting into your grandmother.
( Morrissey )

You Either Care, Or You Don’t

British Milk Production Branded Inhumane ..
Vegan campaigners have been granted the right to brand British milk production inhumane.. Dairy cows are bred to produce milk and are therefore pregnant most of the time.. They lactate following the birth of their calves, after which they’re separated from them, then hooked up and milked daily until they die after five or six years’ work.
You either care.. Or you don’t.
( Fiona Phillips, 29.07.2017 )

Deadly Experiments On Animals ..
During a school field trip to a nearby laboratory, a worker wheeled out a monkey strapped to a chair.. The clicking noise of a button was used to prompt this abused animal to jut out his arm for a drug injection — a response that he had been conditioned to make through pain and fear.. That trembling, frightened primate has been seared into my memory ever since.
Today, I’m a scientist, and I’m sad to say that since that day 24 years ago, I’ve seen many more animals tormented in crude, and often deadly, experiments.
( Jeff Brown )

Has The RSPB Lost Sight ? ..
I read with interest that wild birds in the UK are in decline.
The number of farmland birds is half that of 40 years ago.
There have been dramatic falls, too, in woodland birds such as the lesser spotted woodpecker, the tawny owl and the wood warbler.
These startling figures were churned out by the RSPB, a hugely rich, powerful organization – the most potent conservation group in this country.
I believe the RSPB has lost sight of its job, which is to protect birds.
It was set up in 1889 by a group of women concerned about the large numbers of birds slaughtered to provide feathers for hats.
Now, it fetishises the rare while it is happy for the many to be persecuted.
It has persuaded successive Governments that species conservation is about bird conservation only.. So it has backed or initiated mass culls including the Lundy rats – these rodents are genuinely a rare species but the RSPB justified its actions by saying the rats were not native – as they were only introduced 400 years ago!
The RSPB accused and convicted the rats of causing the decline of the puffin and the Manx shearwater.. In fact, the birds decline was due to the overfishing of sand eels, used in feed for fish farms.
The RSPB also orchestrated the slaughter of thousands of ruddy ducks (first brought to this country in the Forties by Sir Peter Scott) to stop them travelling to Spain to cross-breed with the rare white-headed duck.. The RSPB is peopled by pure-breed fascists who think nothing of annihilating a species for their own elitist reasons.
What makes me particularly angry is that the RSPB does not take a stance against the thousands of birds raised intensively in cages and sheds to feed the shooting industry.
Nor does it object to the other animals and birds – the members of the crow family, weasels, stoats and foxes – killed to protect this ‘sport’.
I don’t pretend to understand our attitude towards wild animals.
I am, by law, not allowed up in my loft, or to enter the space above my stables, because of roosting bats.. But farmers, even on Sundays and Christmas Day, can slaughter indigenous creatures with impunity.
And by the way, does the RSPB campaign on behalf of chickens ?
They have feathers.
( Liz Jones, March 2011 )

Britons Pretend To Like Animals ..
We claim to be deeply offended and upset when we read about other countries mistreating animals.
But we are no better here.. We treat animals like garbage.
Britons pull on fancy dress and chase perfectly innocent animals across the countryside for hours.. Britons breed animals, stuff them into lorries, carry them for days without giving them anything to eat or drink.. And then let foreigners kill them and eat them.
Britons kill and eat millions of animals every year.. And they allow evil, white-coated scientists to torture and kill millions more – for pleasure or money.
We are just as barbaric as other countries.. Indeed, we are worse.. We are hypocrites because we claim to love animals.
We consider ourselves to be the most intelligent and most civilized species on Planet Earth.. We already eat any non-human creature that takes our fancy.
We then ‘hunt’ and chase (assholes call it sport) and kill any living creature that takes our fancy.. If creatures get in our way, or are a nuisance, or are too noisy, or make a mess, or become too many – we kill them.. We choose to have domestic pets (cats and dogs) then we castrate them, abandon them, drown them, starve them, make them fight each other, torture them, experiment on them, and kill them if they are homeless.
We are supposed to be the ‘civilised’ species and yet no animal or creature on Earth is as nasty, or as cruel, or as wicked as human beings.
Nature (and God) must be ashamed of us.

MPs Accept Expensive Treats

Plastic Fantastic ..
During the Second World War, many of Britain’s toy factories were requisitioned for munitions work, and although toy making ceased, this war work indirectly led to a new product which would revolutionise the industry – plastic.. Although plastic was known before the war, various techniques were developed and refined in the factories, where it was used for numerous things including aircraft fittings.
When toy making recommenced, plastic was the obvious choice of material to develop, especially for dolls.. Plastic was light, robust, cheap and easy to mould, and it quickly replaced the traditional composition (plaster mix) or porcelain that was the norm before the war.
( Extract from an article by Susan Brewer, November 2015 )

UK MPs Accept Expensive Treats From Bookies ..
Bookies and sports organisations top the list of donors treating MPs to gifts and hospitality.. The revelation has fuelled claims that the gambling industry is trying to influence Parliament.. Ladbrokes Coral Group treated 15 MPs to trips to Ascot, Doncaster and Cheltenham races, football at Wembley and dinner at the Tory Party conference.
( Sunday Mirror, 03.09.2017 )

Are The Ministry Of Defence Covering Up Rape ?..
A rape is reported by female soldiers once every fortnight in the Army.
Ministry of Defence figures show there were 130 sexual assault claims by women against male colleagues in the past five years, including 31 in 2016.. Out of 55 allegations of rape in the past two years, 32 soldiers were prosecuted but just three were found guilty.
A serving Army lawyer fears the number of rapes may be higher as victims do not press charges due to low conviction rates.. Women Against Rape said there was a “concerted cover-up” by the Ministry of Defence.
( Sunday Mirror, 24.09.2017 )

Lowest Number Of Public Sector Workers Since 1947 ..
Nearly a million public sector jobs have been axed since 2010, official figures show.
Seven years ago 6.4 million people worked in the public sector.
Under Tory PMs David Cameron and Theresa May that number has fallen to 5.44 million.
Among the losses are 164,000 posts in education, 44,000 in the police force and 41,000 in the Armed Forces.. The NHS workforce has grown by 4%, but 134,000 posts have gone in other health and social work, and 186,000 in public admin.
Office for National Statistics figures show public sector workers now make up just 16.9% of the labour force.. That’s the lowest proportion since 1947, the year before the NHS was founded.
( Nicola Small, 17.09.2017 )

East-West Economy Change ..
In 1411, Western Europe was a backward periphery far from the fabulous riches of East Asia, the world’s centre of economic and cultural gravity.
Now fast-forward 500 years to 1911:  Western Europe and its overseas colonies have humbled Asians and bestride the world like a Colossus.
Now go another 100 years or so: The West is staggering under a crushing burden of debt and is looking to the East to revive its flagging economy.
What has happened ?.. Is it because our leaders in business and in government have been greedy and selfish ?

A Strange Coincidence Of Fate ..
On December 5, 1660, a ship sank in the Strait of Dover.
The only survivor was noted to be Hugh Williams.
On December 5, 1767, another ship sank in the same waters.
127 lost their lives, and the only survivor was Hugh Williams.
On August 8, 1820, a picnic boat capsized on the River Thames.
There was one survivor, Hugh Williams.
And on July 10, 1940, a British trawler was destroyed by a German mine. Only two men survived, one man and his nephew – both were called Hugh Williams.

Black Holes Are Spinning Faster ..
Giant black holes in the centre of galaxies are spinning faster than at any other time in the history of the universe, research shows.
When the universe was half its present size, nearly all the super-massive black holes had very low spins.. But nowadays a fraction of them have very high spins.
Scientists still don’t have a clue as to the purpose of black holes.. In fact, they don’t have a clue about most things in the universe.
A black hole, and there are probably millions of them, is a region of space in which the gravitational field is so powerful that nothing, including light, can escape its pull.
The black hole has a one-way surface, into which objects can fall, but out of which nothing can come.
It is called ‘black’ because it absorbs all the light that hits it, reflecting nothing.

The Righteous Stand Firm For Ever

Words Of Solomon ..

The prospect of the righteous is joy,
But the hopes of the wicked come to nothing.

The righteous will never be uprooted,
But the wicked will not remain in the land.

When pride comes, then comes disgrace,
But with humility comes wisdom.

Wealth is worthless in the day of wrath,
But righteousness delivers from death.

When a wicked man dies, his hope perishes;
All he expected from his power comes to nothing.

The righteous man is rescued from trouble,
And it comes on the wicked instead.

A gossip betrays a confidence,
But a trustworthy man keeps a secret.

A kind-hearted woman gains respect,
But ruthless men gain only wealth.

A kind man benefits himself,
But a cruel man brings trouble on himself.

The truly righteous man attains life,
But he who pursues evil goes to his death.

Be sure of this.. The wicked will not go unpunished,
But those who are righteous will go free.

A generous man will prosper;
He who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.

Whoever trusts in his riches will fall,
But the righteous will thrive like a green leaf.

A man cannot be established through wickedness,
But the righteous cannot be uprooted.

From the fruit of his lips a man is filled with good things,
As surely as the work of his hands rewards him.

The way of a fool seems right to him,
But a wise man listens to advice.

Reckless words pierce like a sword,
But the tongue of the wise brings healing.

The desire of the righteous ends only in good,
But the hope of the wicked only in wrath.

One man gives freely, yet gains even more.
Another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty.

The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life,
And he who wins souls is wise.

Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge,
But he who hates correction is stupid.

The plans of the righteous are just,
But the advice of the wicked is deceitful.

The words of the wicked lie in wait for blood,
But the speech of the upright rescues them.

Wicked men are overthrown and are no more,
But the house of the righteous stands firm.

A righteous man cares for the needs of his animal,
But the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel.

An evil man is trapped by his sinful talk,
But a righteous man escapes trouble.

A fool shows his annoyance at once,
But a prudent man overlooks an insult.

Truthful lips endure for ever,
But a lying tongue lasts only a moment.

There is deceit in the hearts of those who plot evil,
But joy for those who promote peace.

The Lord detests lying lips,
But he delights in men who are truthful.

Ill-gotten treasures are of no value,
But righteousness delivers from death.

The man of integrity walks securely,
But he who takes crooked paths will be found out.

The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life,
But violence overwhelms the mouth of the wicked.

Hatred stirs up dissension, but love covers all wrongs.

Wise men store up knowledge, but the mouth of a fool invites ruin.

Let love and faithfulness never leave you..
Bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.

Blessed is the man who finds wisdom, the man who gains understanding,
For she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold.
She is more precious than rubies.. Nothing you desire can compare with her.
Long life is in her right hand.. In her left hand are riches and honour.
Her ways are pleasant ways, and all her paths are peace.
She is a tree of life to those who embrace her.
Those who lay hold of her will be blessed.

The wages of the righteous bring them life,
But the income of the wicked brings them punishment.

He who heeds discipline shows the way to life,
But whoever ignores correction leads others astray.

When words are many, sin is not absent,
But he who holds his tongue is wise.

Preserve sound judgment and discernment, do not let them out of your sight.
They will be life for you, an ornament to grace your neck.
Then you will go on your way in safety, and your foot will not stumble.
When you lie down, you will not be afraid.
When you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.

Do not withhold good from those who deserve it, when it is in your power to act.

The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn,
Shining ever brighter till the full light of day.

The tongue of the righteous is choice silver,
But the heart of the wicked is of little value.

The lips of the righteous nourish many,
But fools die for lack of judgment.

Keep your father’s commands and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.
Bind them upon your heart for ever.. Fasten them around your neck.
When you walk, they will guide you.
When you sleep, they will watch over you.
When you awake, they will speak to you.
For these commands are a lamp, this teaching is a light, and the corrections of discipline are the way to life.

A fool finds pleasure in evil conduct,
But a man of understanding delights in wisdom.

When the storm has swept by, the wicked are gone,
But the righteous stand firm for ever.

Solomon, Son of David
