In Mercer County, Kentucky, nine year old Chris Baker, an Autistic student, was told by his special education aide to climb inside a bag intended for therapeutic purposes as a punishment to “control his autistic behavior” on 14 December 2011. He was placed in the bag with the drawstring tightened and left in the hallway in the school…
Christmas day was rather nice. I was able to spend time with my family which obviously included my pets. We ate Tofurkey, green bean casserole and vegan cake. Jenni gave me a collection of hot sauces. I do love hot sauce!
When I returned to the shelter, I received a nice blue flannel shirt, thermal underwear, gloves, cap, jeans and warm pajama pants (lounge wear). I don’t know who gave me these gifts, but I am quite grateful and hope you are reading this.
“Description The University of Florida Gators Clubs around the world support and fund animal torture at UF, even though non-animal alternatives are available and used world wide. Primates are imprisoned in their labs, poisoned, sickened, and killed. Among thousands of other animals, more than 200 are forced to endure painful experiments without anesthesia, their only relief being an agonizing death. In addition to UF being unresponsive for over a year about apparently-fraudulent grants- a formal NIO lawsuit against UF is now pending to compel disclosure of public primate vivisection records. We must stop their money flow NOW to save lives! Sponsoring a sports team is fine, but until UF bans animal testing all club members are sponsoring the heinous suffering in UF labs when alternatives are available- and we are telling the world about their CHOICE.

While sitting at the Honeymoon Bakery, wearing my Save Japan Dolphins gear, a lady approached me. She told me that her teenage daughter said, “That man saves dolphins!” She said that they had watched The Cove together. I gave them my card, a flyer and a copy of The Cove. She took a picture of me and her daughter together and said that I was doing a wonderful thing. Are you wearing your SJD gear today?
In memory of the first dolphins killed this season in Taiji, please wear your Save Japan Dolphins gear every Wednesday - the day their lives were taken.
Undercover investigations by the Humane Society, Mercy for Animals and other groups have exposed systemic animal cruelty at factory farms. The video footage has led to criminal convictions in Iowa, voter referendums in Florida, and consumer outrage at the most egregious animal welfare abuses.
Rather than put an end to these practices, though, corporations and agriculture industry groups have hit back with another plan: criminalize anyone who exposes their wrongdoing…
I just realized that I will have been homeless for one month, come tomorrow. It makes no sense. There are empty buildings and empty houses here in Rome, Georgia. They are just sitting there. I guess the owners think that they can take the places with them when they die - if they are vacant.
There are apartments vacant. These apartments are a part of the housing authority. They are completely furnished and void of human occupancy. Why? They are being kept as emergency housing for the homeless! Where is the logic in this? Why does someone have to roam the streets in Rome, Georgia while waiting for assistance when the assistance is there?
Furthermore, they cut my food stamps. Why? Because I am not paying rent! Oh, God forbid that I would be able to save my money to get a place to live! No way! Floyd county won’t hear of it! Since I’m not paying rent, it’s only fair that I use my meager income to buy food! This system is designed to keep the poor in poverty and I have no idea how long I will be in this situation.
Well, here’s to the eve of my one-month anniversary of homelessness! ‘Tis the season to be jolly!
As if it isn’t hard enough already to get vegan food while being homeless, the great state of Georgia has cut my food stamps because I am not paying rent! I am being penalized for being homeless which is a result of not having enough income to begin with.
