This time, PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has really outdone themselves. Already known for their ridiculous stances against anything less than complete animal worship, the organization has now called for legal action against the Lake Superior Zoo.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals say that the Lake Superior Zoo was negligent in allowing 13 or 14 animals to die during the flood Wednesday, calling on Duluth City Attorney Gunnar Johnson to bring cruelty charges against the zoo. Read the rest of this entry

Today, President Barack Obama rejected the Keystone XL pipeline, blaming House Republicans for playing politics when they kept language in the payroll tax legislation previously that inserted a 60-day timeline for a decision on the project from the president.
Obama had a chance to place people before politics.
He had the opportunity tell out of work Americans that creating private-sector, energy-independence driven jobs on American soil were his top priority. He had the chance to actually do something that could bring his wish for a lower unemployment rate to fruition.
Remember when he said that unemployment would never go above 8%? Now, when he should be acting to turn words into action, he does the opposite.
Today, Barack Obama gave the Republicans a gift for the upcoming election–they asked for jobs, he said no. If it wasn’t done on his schedule, the way he wanted, he would reject it, as he did.
Even union members are fuming. From The Wall Street Journal’s “Market Watch”:
LIUNA – the Laborers’ International Union of North America – called the reported decision by the Obama Administration today to block permitting for Keystone XL pipeline “politics at its worst.”
“The score is Job-Killers, two; American workers, zero. We are completely and totally disappointed. This is politics at its worst,” LIUNA General President Terry O’Sullivan said. “Once again the President
has sided with environmentalists instead of blue collar construction workers – even though environmental concerns were more than adequately addressed. Blue collar construction workers across the U.S. will not forget this.”
….For someone who keeps angling after the hearts of “middle-class” Americans, keeping them out of work is not helping his favorability one bit. Every one of these potential workers will remember Barack Obama’s failure to act when they head to the polls in November.
