Seriously Bored With The Excuses

Posted on Updated on

Some animals always become heroes when they do something for us. They sit by a death site or grave, or sniff out cancer, help us to see when we are blind – sniff out the bodies of loved ones lost in disasters. They are much better souls than we. They keep us company, and love us unconditionally when there is no other love around. We don’t give a thought to the rest though, and most of us don’t recognise that they are people just like us – better than us really. People is just a word for soul. Of course they have souls – and they should be entitled to go about their natural lives.

We justify our terrible actions with the words of those who have gone before – the bible (misinterpreted), and the scientists who tell us that creatures other than ourselves are too stupid to feel pain. Really? We have “pets.” We lock them in cages and tanks, and feed them crap – for YEARS, and deprive them of a natural place to sleep, or to love others as they are naturally inclined to do – “animals love more faithfully than we do”. We forget to change their water. We STEAL their lives so that we can have a Pretty Boy on top of the fridge for our kids to say “How Cute!”. Please stop doing this. These creatures are adults of their species, and entitled to lives not particularly born for your artistic, fashion, or menu pleasure.

Hunting? As a sport – just for the fun of the chase or fur – NAAH! – A***-holes every one of you. Hunting for food – GREAT idea. The animal lives wild and dies in seconds if you’re a decent shot – I was brought up in apartheid South Africa – I’ll get you right in the iris of your eyeball every time. So much better than the factory farming hells and grinding up of live chicken babies – because of eggs. I don’t eat meat personally, but I would happily shoot an animal for a carnivore. So much better than the raising of meat commercially. I’m quite a good shot by the way – so feel free to contact me. I truly believe that if you’re not prepared to kill and prepare your food, you shouldn’t be eating it. If the sight of a whole dead chicken carcass gives you the willies, then don’t eat the buggery thing. And don’t ever make a joke out of an animal carcass in front of me with your turkey joke on your head. I will seriously kick you in your obviously very tiny inoperable nads.

Anyway. All I’m saying is that life isn’t all about YOU. Try and be a little mindful about the other residents of this planet. No matter how entitled you feel, no matter how in control you feel, you will die in the end too, and you may just find out that your soul is not at all different to that of a gnat. In fact – you might just find out that gnats are much better people.  And they have a right to their own God given life just as you do.  Live your own life and leave them alone.

Compassion is not a favour bestowed – it’s a test of your “HUMANITY” – and probably where you will end up after this – hoping for the compassion of those thousands you harmed without thought.  Hold thumbs that there really aren’t pitchforks.

Stop hurting the helpless people – take a bit of responsibility for YOU. Being cool is not a must but a choice.  And what is cool is kind of obvious if you take off your blinkers.

      I accidentally saw an absolute idiot on Youtube Chris. It’s absolutely disgusting how much cruelty people get to post there in the name of humour. Pardon my rant, but…. 🙂

            Afraid you’re right Jo – but I’m hopeful that for every BAD human, there’s at least one GOOD one to keep the balance (however, some days that balance seems to be skewed the wrong way)

    Yeah go Jo – remind me not to hack you off with your double barrelled in your hand. I agree wholeheartedly – I made a comment the other day on a newspaper site that I rant on occasionally – well most days – and suggested the return of the stocks and following a day in these at the Public’s pleasure not the Governments – 5 years in an orange jump suit sweeping the streets with ‘animal abuser’ in large letters on the back…someone mentioned their human rights – and my reply to that is that they have abused humane rights and have none of their own left until they earn them back again….you can see why I could not make a polite RSPCA inspector – kick in the door…..way to go….XXX

      TOTALLY right you are Sally! For some reason the majority of people insist that people who are trying to make the world a slightly better place for animals must just shut up and not look at what’s going on, and I get chills knowing what some evil “things” are getting up to with helpless creatures. There really should be harsher punishment, and everyone who sees these things shouldn’t be “polite” and look the other way. XXXXX

    Reblogged this on Smorgasbord – Variety is the spice of life and commented:
    I love nothing more than a good old fashioned rant – there are 8 billion or so of us on this planet and only a few million making themselves unpleasant – fear of reprisals to self and family, fear of standing out from the crowd and apathy are some of the reasons but perhaps if the 7.5billion of us who do have respect for others and our wildlife shouted at once we might get something done… way to go Jo

    Great post and well spoken. I don’t have human kids home living any longer, but 2 old cats, who are allowed to stay outside in daytime, when they wish to and a dog, who also decide, where he wish to stay. They are my kids and are treated like that. They have their souls and personality – all of them.

      Thanks Irene. It’s cool that your little guys get to decide what they want to do. Mine do too – unless they get funny urges to help cook or something like that. We are blessed to have them in our lives, and it sucks that people get to hurt so many of them. Animals definitely have souls – and they’re a lot nicer and kinder than most of us too.

      True Olga! I suppose some of us have to be shown what it is to be human sometimes – although we’re the only ones on the planet that get up to the bad. I reckon that another species wouldn’t find it complimentary to be called human.

      “Julia Sugarbaker soapbox” 😀 Loved her – there’s the old age showing now. Sometimes it’s hard not to hop on it though – I generally try the self-control, but sometimes I see such rotten things that I go boooom.
