I pay too much attention to this kind of stuff, so I know it's been going on for a good while now. There are animal rights activists that have been trying to promote the idea that lobsters and fish have rights and are near human level intelligent too. Guess that explains why they get aught in unbaited traps so easy, right? LOL.

Anyhoo, I'm all for making sure animals have a reasonably comfortable living arrangement on farms (don't like the no room to move cages that hens and some pigs end up in), and that animals don't suffer when slaughtered. PETA really pushes things too far though and does more to hurt their cause than help it.

Me, I belong to the other PETA: People Eating Tasty Animals. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I new when I saw the post title that this was the most stupid news story from Maine ever to make national headlines.
PETA does something like this every year, one year it was some poor soul in a lobster suit protesting in Portland. Trouble is it was a RED lobster suit, meaning
he was all boiled up and ready to be eaten... :banghead:

I feel for yah, Cliff. I''m in California here. Every day it's a competition between wackadoo special interest groups to come up with the dumbest idea and get the most media attention.

Maine is the king of East Coast Cold Water Lobstah. Imho there is no better tasting Lobstah but I admit, I'm partial to them, especially the 2-3 lbers.
They can try as hard as they want to, but the " correct minded " New Englanders won't put up with thier Crap.
That business is just too BIG in that state.
Same with thier BooBerrize...

Its like telling Texans to give up MEAT , telling New Yorkers to give up Sabretts, Joizey folk to put down thier Pizza Pie and like telling Maryland to stop eating Soft Shell Crabs.... It ain't gonna happen without one heck of a fight.

Total Brains full of Mush !!!

It takes less than you think, Wooden. California used to be way different than it is. Look at Hollywood specifically. During WW2 and even Korea, they were solidly patriotic. Vietnam, they started turning Left. Now they're left of Mao.

I could spell out the patterns of going after traditional values piece by piece (in the name of being enlightened and or tolerant), infiltrating college teaching staffs, etc... The big problem isn't the fringe elements, the problem is the general public who is either too wrapped up in their reality TV to care, OR has been beaten into silence; being told it's rude to stand up for what's correct. Nowadays, it's the loudest voices that are winning, despite them being a small fringe element.

Can't happen 'there'... Look at Austin in Texas. Nobody is safe as long as people are unwilling to politely but firmly take a stand.

I know it. I've got family about 30 min NE of San Fran. Huge difference in just the past 25 years. Just my opinion but my $ is on the Lobster and Fishing industry up north.
But....., just in case I'm wrong I will just have to chomp on some crustaceans in the near future.

Grrr, now I want a Lobstah Roll :)

Very late in dialing back to my own thread, but could not help myself in this instance given I have a message for Professor Bunky, A tired old joke from my college days as a business major:
