“..."shows a lack of consideration and manners...And that's certainly not the NRA way."

Are they kidding?!! The NRA has neither, let alone class and tact.”

“The NSRA didn't talk about a lack of consideration and manners when it held it's klavern in Denver a few days after Columbine.

They didn't talk about a lack of consideration and manners when it's members rushed out to buy guns and ammo after Newtown.

No such talk when members were encouraged to give guns and ammo that year as gifts to commemorate the birth of The Prince of Peace....

Ect. ect.”

“Who could ever vote for such an greedy, sold-out opportunist? He blows with the wind to get votes, now denying global warming in the most vulnerable state tons in tea bag votes. I hate them all.

There's a special place in hell for politicians like this. And it's called tea party Florida.

These politicians make me ashamed to be an American. We can lead on global climate change issues. But we refuse to because of corporate money.

Will it ever get better?”

“"For Democrats and advocates, however, the FIRST Act represents a dangerous injection of politics into science and a direct assault on the much-cherished peer-review process by which grants are awarded."

This is why we HAVE to get out the Dem vote in 2014 -- or these evil, white, fossil-fuel, born again cavemen will bring us back to the stone age with their primitive beliefs in gods, curses, etc.”

“Yes, they exist. Did you create any, or are you doing the work of poachers and extraction concerns by ignorantly attacking the livelihoods of millions of conservation professionals? Because currently sanctuaries exist in overwhelmingly too few numbers to remotely shoulder the burden of research, education, and conservation provided by zoological facilities that function in part through profit motive.”

“Zoos suck! Elephants belong in areas where they can roam -- a sanctuary if not back in the "wild," if there's anything left of that on this godforsaken human-ruined planet.”

“Buy all means, finance, build, and manage an elephant sanctuary. What's that? Oh, you'd rather just whinge on the internet about a fantasy world that doesn't exist where there's a zero-sum game between happy poacher-free elephants and and a dystopian prison nightmare? Fantastic.”

“It also contains palm oil (Vitamin A Palmitate), which:

1. Destroys high conservation value rainforest;
2. Kills critically endangered who make the HCV forests home, like the orangutan;
3. Enslave the poor in atrocious palm oil plantation working conditions;
4. Exacerbates global warming.

Support the orangutans at redapes.org

Here's a response from Kraft from my inquiry. Not at all settling:

?Kraft Foods does not purchase crude palm oil, but buys fats derived from palm oil from specialised suppliers. Our suppliers source their palm oil predominantly from Malaysia and Indonesia. Kraft Foods buys less than 0.5% of worldwide production.

Kraft is aware of the ecological and social impacts of deforestation of tropical forests and shares the concern about the potential long-term consequences of this development.

This is why we encourage our palm oil suppliers to address these concerns and participate in the “Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO)”. Roundtable members include the World Wildlife Fund, governments of palm oil producing countries, plantation
owners, traders, the food industry and our most important palm oil suppliers.

We support the goals and efforts of RSPO to develop guidelines promoting responsible palm oil production. We actively encourage our suppliers to pursue more effective enforcement according to the organisation’s sustainability principles and criteria. That is why, in principle, we also support the call for a moratorium, as it is substantively in line with the Roundtable’s principles regarding conversion of rainforests and peatland areas for palm oil."”

“Look at the Republican priorities -- Repeal Obamacare which is helping some 10 million people who never had insurance before, and lowering prices for millions of others, yet they push through Citizens United, which only affects the upper 1% and corporations, pushing our "democratic republic" (ha!) ever close to an oligarchy. Don't even get me started on global warming, which will affect the Republicans' kid, grandkids and so on.

Unless you have no heart, soul or brain, how could anybody be a conservative in this day and age? It's certainly not the brand of reasonable conservatism of many of our (now deceased) fathers. Never thought I'd yearn for Nixon.”
