Take action now: Take the Stop Amnesty Challenge.

It's up to you to block Obama's amnesty.

"It was horrible. There were fake chicken feathers everywhere."

Sometimes PETA's valiant efforts don't go as planned. From an April 12 press release:
Brownsville, Texas — Holding signs that read, "The Colonel’s Secret Recipe: Live Scalding, Painful Debeaking, Crippled Chickens," members of PETA—including an activist wearing a body screen TV showing shocking undercover video footage of chickens on factory farms and in slaughterhouses—will protest KFC suppliers’ abusive treatment of chickens at a local KFC restaurant. A giant, crippled "chicken" will cross the road in front of the restaurant, while activists hand out leaflets...
Flash forward to "PETA gets rude welcome in Brownsville":
...John Olivo, the manager of the [KFC], turned on the sprinkler system full blast to soak the curbside protesters. And a man who eats beef followed them around with his stepchildren and a microphone...

Armed with a microphone and a hand-held speaker, Ingersoll followed the protestors and outshouted them at a busy intersections.

"You bunch of crazy animal rights nuts!" he shouted. "You’re not going to win. Not in Brownsville!"

His two step-children passed out anti-PETA pamphlets to drivers stopped at the intersection...
(As you might have surmised, the title is not in the article. No chickens or people dressed as chickens were harmed.)

Personally, I admire PETA for their basic effort of trying to bring attention to a reality that many people find uncomfortable: modern, industrial animal agriculture is often little more than a disturbing form of organized animal cruelty. If you eat meat, or a lot of it, from the usual sources, then you are, in a sense, contributing to this.

And to some people, anyone who expresses concern about it is an 'animal rights nut'.

The karma may very well come around.
