Human Chauvinists Discuss How To Exterminate Millions Of Asian Carp

 

user img

On a WBUR network show, John Flesher of the AP was discussing as if it were a good thing the electroshocking of Asian carp along the Illinois River.  Human beings have outlawed the electric chair whose advent included the public electrocution of prisoners and elephants by Thomas Edison.  A second method is electric barriers, somewhat like the electric barbed wire fences used to harm animals trying to escape ranches.

No one discussed the danger to human children and adults from river electrocution and electrically charged river barriers.

He and the radio host were also upset that Asian carp were jumping in to boats. No one discusseed the trillions of fishes who have been drawn, quartered and chopped up by motorboat propellers and that these fishes were jumping into the boats to escape the propellers and the electrocution both.

Dave Wethington, engineer and project manager with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the ecocidal agency which was co-responsible for the Katrina flooding of New Orleans, discussed spending EIGHTEEN BILLION DOLLARS to eliminate Asian carp from the Great Lakes.  He said fish were sometimes ‘incapacitated’ by the electric barriers.  The actual word should be ‘killed’. The Army Corps has been silent about white pelicans who are eating the Asian carp.

Who are promoting the destruction of Asian carp?  Those who make their living from fish suffocation.  It is just recently that the mercury level of Lake Erie was considered low enough that people could risk eating mercury-saturated memory-destroying fish. Fukushima has been filling the Pacific with radiation. If you want to glow in the dark, eat fish who are polluted by illegal nuclear waste dumping by many countries into the Atlantic and Pacific.

Still othes who think humans have a right to kill fishes have said Asian carp flesh is prized in China and Europe and that their cadavers can be ground up for food for captive mammals.

It is the most intelligent, adaptable and strong species which humans, the most invasive species on earth, attempt to eliminate.  Asian carp are plankton eaters.

Asian carp are environmental cleaners. Human waste spilling over into lakes and rivers is cleaned up by Asian carp.

Asian carp have been in the Great Lakes for 10 years and have not been eliminating other species.

Fisheating is correlated to stomach cancer, arthritis, anaphylactic shock and hundreds of other diseases.

Meanwhile the invasive human species has killed one half billion fish with chemical spills or intentional poisoning near Barkley Dam

Humane Society Disconnect

How many humane societies

have fundraisers

in which they serve mammal

bird and fish flesh

to raise money to prevent

animal suffering?

 

They love the animals

they know… but not yet

the cows, pigs, sheep,

chickens, turkeys, and

fishes with whom they

don’t interact.

Barbed Wire Barbarism

How many millions of miles of barbed wire are there in the world…  wire whose sharp steel thorns impale countless species of mammals and birds.

Mother cows, writes C J Box, injured themselves in trying without the benefit of fingers or tools to free their babies.

It is time to ban barbed wire. There are countless less violent alternatives.

For the first time
several lawsuits have been filed … asking for writs of habeas corpus regarding chimps in New York… at Stonybrook and elsewhere held against their will, subjected to lives of infliction of pain and confinement.  Legal personhood has been granted to animals in some other countries.

Object to Professor Destro of Catholic University

http://www.cua.edu/contact-us.cfm  who along with the Catholic hierarchy (priests bishops cardinals the Pope) continue to ignore the rights of animals. The Catholic church since the Council of Nicea in 325 AD has hidden the vegetarian diet of Jesus, the Essene. Is Pope Francis the only pontiff who has gone to Assisi without mentioning kindness to animals, instead attacking ‘pantheism’. (God is omnipresent. Therefore God  indwells all beings.)   For 1689 years the Catholic Church, despite the thousands of vegetarian saints, has also obscured the first 3 centuries of Christianity when vegetarian diet permeated the church.
Object to Alan Dittrich, president of the Massachusetts Society for Medical Research.   Boston Massachusetts receives
more money to torture animals than any other city. Harvard is the worst.

 

Wise mentions chimp awareness of the future is demonstrated by a chimp in a zoo angered by captivity who stores stones and waits hours to be able to throw them at his abusers.

Charles Siebert spoke of a physical scarring from captivity, with brain neurons reduced and said that President Bill Clinton’s last act as president was to establish a chimp haven which would receive abused lab animals.

The US Postal Service is trying to promote circus cruelty, issuing

a series of postage stamps which glorify the barbarism of

circuses.

 

Please contact the postmaster Patrick Donahoe and ask for stamps

showing

kindness to animals and not praise for their abusers

Footnote: Why no recycled envelopes, recycled packages for sale at USPS

Why doesn’t the envelope adhesive go all the way on the flap?

Why aren’t there stamp and envelope machines in many post offices?:
