Go Home Paul...Just Go Home... [Mar. 1st, 2006|06:54 pm]

[music |something by WINGS...hahaha..NO WAY!!!]

So..Sir Paul McCartney has decided to make a stop in this lowly part of the globe ..not to sing (thank god) but to criticize our seal hunt. Before going any further I would first like to scratch an itch. I wish that someone would club HIM over the head with his anorexic wife's wooden leg rendering him even more useless than he already is.
Here is what I really don't get..Do these famous people REALLY think they're fooling anyone? They're not. First of all, we as Newfoundlanders kill LOTS of animals, rabbits, moose, ducks, cod fish, the latter is almost completely exterminated and I don't see any famous people complaining about that. Why? One word, cuteness...A cod fish isn't cute. It doesn't pull at the masses heartstrings in quite the same way as a fluffy baby seal does now does it? Another reason is how hunters kill the seals, clubbing. Really? Who cares how an animal dies, the end result is the same is it not? Death. It's not prolonged, it's the same if not quicker than shooting a seal. It's better, at least the seal is knocked out for it's death, a shot gun blast to the body gives a more prolonged death and the seal is wide awake and aware of it's pain. If I'm ever killed I hope someone knocks me out for it. I don't want to know I'm dying. Would you?
These brownbread head rock stars really need to be put in their place. We as homo-sapians have a fine set of canines for the shredding of animal flesh. Natural selection has chosen us to be carnivorous. I'd rather listen to mother nature than some over the hill English rock star and his dull as dirt horse faced wife. Vegetarianism is fine. I have nothing against it at all. As long as it is not preached to me. It's a choice, just like it's MY choice to eat meat.
Another thing, it's trendy. Animal activism is a band wagon everyone tries, not really a belief. I once rode on the back of it somewhere, to be cool, not because I really believed in saving animals. How could I while still sucking back on a Quarter Pounder? Most people who jump on that band wagon are hypocrites, just like I was. How can you justify traveling all this way to protest the killing of seals when we have children dying all over the world from famine, war, ethnic cleansing...Think about that for a moment. SOOO much money goes to PETA and other nonsense organizations each year and what is REALLY done with that money? Jack Hanna (the Colombus zoo guy who comes on Leno sometimes) was on Bill Mahar's late night talk show once and pointed out to some brain-dead stoned PETA rep that his organization had raised $160,000 for the conservation of endangered species in that year and asked how much PETA had actually raised for conservation. The guy had no response, he DIDN'T know. Jack knew. NONE. I guess all of PETA's money goes to new implants for Pam Anderson.
In closing I have some final word's for "Sir" Paul..Go home. We don't care about your narrow minded views. Take the time to ACTUALLY learn about the seal hunt instead of preaching uneducated trendy views on a people who have been hunting for hundreds of years. If you really want to feel good about yourself, sponsor a starving child or buy a homeless man a meal. At the end of the day this world had much more pressing issues than a seal hunt. Plus, I can't wait for Keith Richards to come and protest our Moose hunt, at least he's COOL!!!

Jolene... it is me, the forgotten MIKEY. two things: 1. there is no meat in a quarter pounder.. everyone knows that. 2. Heather McCartneys leg is NOT made of wood.. these days we have space age materials like plastic, or the ever fashionable vinyl to make prosthetics out of :)

Pretty proud of your record on killing anything and everything aren't you?

And you have the audacity to call it 'hunting seals'. Phew, that's gotta be some tricky hunt - just walk up to it and club the fucker over the head. Tough call big man.

I can see why Paul isn't bothered about homo-sapiens - we're a virus and should be wiped of the face of the planet. Starting with you.

People's livelyhoods depend on the seal population, which contrary to what some uneducated over the hill rock star thinks is a healthy population. Men feed their families because of them. I put the survival of a family ahead of an animal any day. I'm actually an animal lover myself, however I have the presence of thought to put things into priority instead of shooting my mouth off on matters I know nothing about, unlike you.

dear elitest slacker,

if you ask me what I think of Paul MacCarthy and his wife doing their PR thing, well, I'm not a fan.
However, I dont not think it is fair of you to expostulate so ferouscioulsly against those of us - me included - who find seal clubbing a barbaric practise. You may have been a hypocrite jumping on the animal rights bad waggon because you wanted to impress some girls/guys. That is your problem. I don't wear fur, I don't watch bullfights (a major deal in my country), I don't eat Quarter Pounder, I don't hunt. I am a great fan of codfish and I'm terribly distressed at the idea of its extintion, as of any of the other less amiable species disappearing all over the planet - insects, reptiles, the lot. The issue is not how cuddly they are - it is about mouring the loss of diversity Man is causing in our planet. Besides, you are probably aware of the fact that the fishing sector is trying to pin the blame of the dwindelling numbers of cod shoals on seals, which is simply false. Intensive fishing and disrespect for reproducive cycles are to blame, not the seals.
I am not a Newfoundlander. I cannot account for the cultural, social or economical significance killing a seal carries for you. I can tell you this much - for me to see an eskimo bludgeon a seal to death or harpoon it is quite an unsavoury site, but I do not see it as barbaric. It is essential for their survival as a source of food for entire families.
To see a government-sponsored killing spree of young seal cubs for reasons that remain murky and unsubstanciated (too many seals as it is?) I do object to. Surely there must be other ways to control the seal population, if that is at all the issue.
As you rants agains PETA and the lack of concern over poor children dying all over the world - please give me a break. If you're so concerned over world justice and you want to go all hollier than thou, direct your anger to say, your neighbourgh President Bush.
And by the way, I DO sponsor a poor child. TWO in fact.
How many do you sponsor?

At least you brought up some good points. People have taken my opinions too far. I myself would never have the heart to kill an animal, but I also see the need of a seal hunt. We kill moose here. No one cares about that. I just don't like the idea of a lame celebrity using my province and it's way of life as a means for publicity. I don't sponser a child. It would be easy for me to say I do, but I don't. Charity begins at home. I give generously to other organizations whithin my community.

weak arguments

(Link)

There are several completely unsupported claims in your post. Here are just a few (with comments):

1. The *only* reason people care about killing seals versus killing codfish is because seals are cute. Actually, the pain system in all mammals (including humans) is remarkably similar. So, there are good reasons to think that the pain caused to a seal is very similar to pain caused to a human. The idea that a seal is a fish is a banana slug just shows a lack of thought on the matter.

2. It doesn't matter how the seals die. Actually, if you were paying attention, the reason that animal rights activists are concerned with the seals is because it is a particularly painful way to die. It's not like every seal is knocked unconscious on the first swing as you make it sound.

3. We have been evolved to eat meat, therefore eating meat is morally fine. This is called the naturalistic fallacy. It goes like this: this is how things were in the past, therefore this is how we *should* act. It is the same argument that was used to say that women shouldn't be allowed in the workforce.

4. PETA doesn't know how much money they spent on conservation. PETA is not a conservation group. They are a group that tries to prevent suffering to animals. There is a difference. A group that cares about conservation might try to protect land for a endangered species of flower, PETA clearly wouldn't because they care about sentient organisms.

Re: weak arguments

Thank you for putting words into my mouth. If it wasn't for bored cyberspace addicts I wouldn't have a thing to say. You put too much into my rant about Sir Paul. I appriciate you're educated views though. As long as everyone is aware that all of this is based on opinion. I eat meat as a choice...not because I "think" I should. I like meat. If I didn't like it, I wouldn't eat it, just like pears. As a matter of fact, I don't even eat seal or any game meat at all. I don't like it. Also, our hunt is regulated. As a matter of fact, seals aren't even clubbed anymore. Either way, it doesn't matter though. Death is death no matter what kind of face you put on it. Why say all this to me though? My family never relied on the seal hunt. My mother was an accountant. Why not speak to a child of a seal hunter and tell them they will have to go on welfare because people think what their daddy does is cruel as the animals he kills is more pleasing to the eye than say a cow. I don't see Paul visiting slaughter houses. Bottom line, no matter what anyone says, this isn't for the good of baby seals that Paul and his feeble wife are visiting ice flows. They didn't even go to a Newfoundland ice flow, they went to a bay outside P.E.I..totally different province. They spent an hour in our airport, that's it. They took enough time on an ice flow hundreds of miles away to get thier pictures taken with a seal for publicity. They are appearing on Larry King tonite for publicity. Nothing more. He's using his fame to exploit many Newfoundlanders way of life. As a side note, I would never kill a seal, but I just don't think he has the right to preach to the world that it's barbaric. He has only witnessed old news reels from many years ago and decided to use the cuteness of a baby seal to sell his records. I hope he thinks about that when a childs father loses his livlihood.

Re: weak arguments

You know, if my livelihood involved killing things with a club, I'd get a new livelihood. We ain't living in the eighteen hundreds. People can get new jobs, they can build a new way of life. And if there aren't any jobs where they are, perhaps they could move or press their elected officials to provide an alternate means for them to thrive. Or they could continue to murder and lamely justify it as "tradition" or a "way of life". I can't imagine anyone MISSING the sweet feeling of clubbing a four week old seal to death. Maybe I'm wrong? The bottom line is...with political will and courage the slaughter could end, and money that is already propping up the industry could be invested in creating jobs and an infrastructe for the people who could no longer hunt, for it is about the people as much as the animals. The millionaire premier of Newfoundland is hardly a visionary.

Re: weak arguments

You do make some well thought out points, and I do appriciate them. These men don't kill 4 week old pups though, that's illegal. They could find another means of making a living, but our hunter/fisherpeople are tired of having to find a new means of sustaining themselves. The Canadian government allowed for years the rape of our cod stocks by foreign vessels, greatly diminishing their numbers. That leaves to a point now where the millions of seals out there are diminshing it even more. The seal hunt is needed to bring a balance to the fisherey. Paul McCartney needs to realize it isn't the 60's anymore. There isn't a vast slaughter but a regulated hunt the same as the regulated hunts of any other animal.

Proposal to the Seal Hunt.

(Link)

As most intelligent individuals can plainly see, there is about as much sport in killing seals, as there is in chasing two year old children around a playground with an axe. It's simply wrong, and the only reason these clowns defend it is for the almighty dollar, not much more. So, here is what I propose. Lobby the government to shelter these poor, hard done by fishermen under the same agricultural laws which compensate farmers. It's not like money is constantly wasted by the government on a regular basis, here is an expense that I can live with. This way they can stick their feet by the fire and pick their noses all spring long, dreaming of the cod stocks that seals actually help protect. Bear in mind, Seals go after fish which actually prey on cod. I think we can all recall a recent crash in cod stocks, that brought the industry to a grinding halt? think about it. Secondly, we need to begin a "nation wide" on line petition, for a politician with a back bone to stop it for good. Remember the voting process, politicians know one thing, the desire to get into office, and keep office. Nothing rings louder than a vote. It is the moral responsibility of all Canadians. It's rather transparent that the minister of oceans and fisheries is getting glad handed under the table by foreign market to keep this disgusting practice chugging along. Also remember that these fishermen know that at the end of the day, all world viewers can see that this is a really easy buck. Any retard can kill a baby, it takes true heart and soul to save. So, go back to your sixty of screech, and dream of the days that you will be back on the killing vessel with your boyfriends..... eerrrr fellow fishermen.....I "think" I meant to say. Remember that when you kiss the cod, it may be for the last time. You have no knowledge of the food chain.

Cheers Big Ears !!

Re: Proposal to the Seal Hunt.

The real retard here is you. Why do people still think they kill the white coats? Because the media sensationalizes it and tells you they do using actual video footage from the 70's and 80's. However, it's wrong. The killing of white coats is strictly monitored and punishable by law. The seal hunt therefor is no worse than any other hunting/fishing industry. Once again, the only reason anyone outside Newfoundland tries to pretend they give a shit is because they are cute and famous people tell you to care. They may prey on other fish, but if you actually bothered to check your facts, they prey on cod as well. Go feed a starving child, help a woman in Congo suffering from the effects and stigma of rape, adopt a homeless puppy from a shelter or better yet? Stop ranting about something you have no impact on and know nothing about.
