HSUS (Humane Society Of The U.S.) and PETA (People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals) are the forces behind the "Animal Rights" movement.  They vow to end the breeding of all animals.  They have started with purebred dog and cat Hobby Breeders because we have no national representation, no Union, and no Federal / State tax status because we rarely have profit.  It should be noted, they are Tax Exempt organizations. This is the year we launch the VIP Project because your Votes Insure Pets!

 

In 2008 anti-dog Animal Rights legislation swept the country. 

What will YOU do to make 2009 about Human Rights?


PETA Grants, Backers and Conflicts

PETA GRANTS: Here’s a thought for you.  In 2003 PETA had fifteen million two hundred ninety nine thousand dollars in assets.  Put another way, that’s $15,299,586.00 Right.  That non-profit that many of us used to donate to before we found out what they really were.

The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine $432,524.00 cash grant in 1999 according to IRS form 990.

From 1999 through 2000, PETA contributed $592,594.00 to The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.

What is the definition of money laundering?  Does just shifting it to another non-profit sound close?  Oh it is all legal.  But does that make it okay?

You decide, and draw your own analogies.  What does the The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine do?  According to ActivistCash.com it is “a fanatical animal rights group that seeks to remove eggs, milk, meat, and seafood from the American diet, and to eliminate the use of animals in scientific research. Despite its operational and financial ties to other animal activist groups and its close relationship with violent zealots, PCRM has successfully duped the media and much of the general public into believing that its pronouncements about the superiority of vegetarian-only diets represent the opinion of the medical community.”
 
We are told “Less than 5 percent of PCRM™ members are physicians” by Newsweek in February 2004.
 
The point?  Just that clever marketing and a really big budget can have most of us believing in little green men from Mars.
