Eco-Wackos Hate Dog Ownership

Check this out. More proof of what I've said before about dog hating extremists.

The Watson rant kept on going calling for everything from cutting down on the population of domesticated dogs and cats to cutting down on everything else in what he called “simplify, simplify, simplify.”

So, since these folks are so concerned about overpopulation, I figure they should be the first to sacrifice themselves, right? Well, don't count on it anytime soon. They have the same basic animal drives we all have, and they will practice self preservation like the rest of us.

I'm pretty tired of folks who think they have this special wisdom concerning how all of us should live, when in fact, they don't do it themselves first. Think of all the Hollywood types and publicity seeking politicians who have been bleating about global warming... only to find out they practically live in castles, are transported around in gas guzzling private jets, eat only the finest foods, own stables of horses and houses filled with too many pets, and have bank accounts stuffed with cash earned from the very things they say we shouldn't be doing.

It can sometimes seem as if the scientific method is being overridden by politics, economics ignored in favor of feel good solutions, and biology trumped by feelings. Well, never fear... in the long run, reality is more powerful than the wish lists of the fanatics. You can't wish away the nature of things.
