PETA Asks Obama Admin to Create New “Food Council”


In an effort to take advantage of a 2008 Pew Commission study critical of agricultural businesses, PETA issued a press release on December 8 calling on President-elect Obama to create a National Food Policy Council. In the release, PETA accosts the industry and states that unsafe food has led to “obese children, environmental pollution and degradation, antibiotic resistance, cruelty to animals, and more.”

The proposed National Food Policy Council would focus on new regulations concerning food safety and would supposedly “reduce waste, protect human health and the environment, reduce animal suffering and global poverty, and save money,” according to PETA Vice President for Policy and Government Affairs Bruce Friedrich. Of course, the council could launch attacks not only on major agri-businesses, but on hunters and others other sportsmen that consume meat taken from the field. This is especially concerning given the recent controversy in several states surrounding the use of lead ammunition to harvest venison for food shelter programs.

Currently, there is no word from the President- elect’s team on how they are viewing PETA’s proposal.

The only purpose of bread is to hold meat!

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.
