PETA Upset With Barack Obama For Killing A Fly

PETA Upset With Barack Obama For Killing A Fly

By Robert Paul Reyes

Flies are universally despised; they have often been used in mythology and literature to symbolize death and decay.

Flies are a pest, whenever folks are having a good time at a picnic or barbeque there`s always flies buzzing around doing their best to dampen the good spirits.

There are few things quite as satisfying as crushing a fly with a fly swatter, but don`t kill any of the tiny monsters if there are any PETA members in the vicinity. PETA members love all of god`s creatures including cockroaches, maggots and flies. If New York City was invaded by locusts, the good folks at PETA would roll out the red carpet for the little critters.

"PEOPLE for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is upset with Barack Obama killing a fly during a televised interview - and are sending him a parcel to prove it.

PETA is sending President Barack Obama a Katcha Bug Humane Bug Catcher, a device that allows users to trap a house fly and then release it outside.

`We support compassion even for the most curious, smallest and least sympathetic animals," PETA spokesman Bruce Friedrich said Wednesday. "We believe that people, where they can be compassionate, should be, for all animals.`",22049,25654973-5001021,00.html

Obama has made a lot of mistakes, but killing a fly isn`t one of them. Why doesn`t someone manufacture a Katcha Humane PETA Catcher? Maybe a huge net to catch PETA idiots?
