PETA, in my little town

PETA's Colleen Higgins was here in no man's land yesterday standing downtown in front of the beach trying to appear naked behind a banner. It's too bad PETA doesn't stick to her type of pranks as it wasn't taken well at all.
She was protesting raising beef because we 'waste too much water to give to them'. Someone must have forgotten to tell her we have the largest working ranch just south of us and that our steakhouses are always packed.
I googled her and it seems she loves taking her clothing off. Maybe PETA hears screams when cotton for clothing is ripped from the ground?

Ha! She, or someone like her, was in OUR small piece of the world a few months back when the circus was in town. She didn't strip completely naked though...I think she wore bra & panties for her protest. Of course, the local paper covered the story, in detail, a week before the protest was supposed to take place..

If the media would ignore these people perhaps they'd go away.

Our media made her look like a fool and showed people's distaste with her. I wish all of PETA were an easy target like that.

The police were going to get her for nudity but she had a dinky bikini on that didn't show behind the banner held around her to make her appear nude. Since she was standing by the beach, she could get away with it.
The news showed the reactions to her and none were pleasant. I was kind of happy she came to town when I saw that.

Nice. Exactly something I'd like to have to explain to my kids while driving down the road. What a tool.

Funny.

I find it ironic that they don't pull too many stunts here and their headquarters are here, only protesting at the furriers and McD's sometimes, but I cant' recall any nudity (thank GOD) but I did notice that on the documentary, they enjoy being naked for some reason, perhaps porn was their first calling? lol Who knows.

I can imagine that didn't go over well in Texas, where the steakhouses are plenty and the cowboys don't put up with such nonsense. lol

Why aren't these PETA people standing and protesting in front of the puppy mills and pet stores that sell puppy mill puppies?

An interesting article appeared in our newspaper today. Seems PETA is protesting the circus, again, due to the poor treatment of the animals. It is at a LI venue. But instead of them just going there to protest, they picked a local grade school to go to. They handed out coloring books and literature against the circus. What is wrong with these PETA people?

Well, the circus sent a bunch of clowns, etc. to the school to show the kids that the circus is OK. Next thing we know, PETA will be shooting down Santa for having reindeer flying all over the world.
