No Beijing Olympics for Me

I am truly disappointed in an American nation which supposedly has
a love affair with their cats and dogs but who are either blissfully unawares
of what is happening to millions of innocent cats and dogs in China - or
whose love of cats and dogs are limited to only their own. 
If they are ignorant re the horrific skinning alive of both cats and dogs in China, then I am disappointed in ALL the animal rights organizations who did nothing or little to educate their members re this horrible carnage that goes on continuously in some parts of China.

Anyone interested in seeing a video re this horror, please go to the internet
and type in "CHINESE FUR FARMS."  This video shows the terrible treatment
involved in the skinning of dogs which I believe are called raccoon dogs.  Other farms also skin alive cats as well. The numbers are estimated in the millions, but for those who are incredulous - how about hundreds of thousands?  Does that make it less of a tragedy?   

Can't the animal organizations ever take on one concern -even though each has his own?  This would have been the best time to make China realize that we don't want to watch their Olympics if they are so cruel to their animals --let alone their poor record re human rights.  No fear that the Olympics would not go on.  There will always be plenty of people who aren't terribly concerned about animal suffering.
To Congress' credit they have tried to stop the importation of Chinese fur-trimmed trinkets made from cat and dog fur, but as always -unintentionally, they missed some loop holes which I believe they are trying to address.  But as for the rest of people like myself who have at least watched a portion of the horrific video, no way are we going to watch the Olympics.  If you want to consider me unpatriotic, be my guest.  I will always choose compassion before patriotism.

I have been concerned about animal suffering ever since
I received my first puppy Peaches in 1975. She made me take a good look at the animal kingdom and I was shocked to see how badly we treat so many animals. At 77, I've been a vegan for the (more...)
