And… it’s safe. President Obama says so.

As Flint’s water crisis drags on, and officials expect a period of two years to replace the city’s corroded pipes, President Obama has become a pitchman to quell the population’s worries and take the pressure off of Flint leaders, despite plenty of evidence of negligence and corruption.

Obama even took a drink, as so many stumping political figures have over the years, after an awkward speech that almost gave the impression that lead isn’t so bad – because people who grew up before EPA laws on lead still “did really well” in life.

The Detroit Free Press reported:

President Obama drank from a glass of what he said was filtered Flint water at a Flint food bank Wednesday as he vouched for the safety of certified filters and encouraged most city residents to start drinking filtered water instead of bottled water.

The Kentucky Derby Represents Animal Cruelty; Horseracing Kills Horses; 1,000 (Dead) Reasons Not to Bet or Watch Today

Horseracing Wrongs

My great challenge here is to get people – the American public, or at least a tipping-point section of it – to see through the distractions, the deceits – the lies. This, of course, is no easy task, for if nothing else Racing boasts a finely-tuned propaganda apparatus. How else to explain the fact that an industry that regularly (every day) maims and kills animals for $2 bets has been able to survive – even thrive at times – for 150 years? Masterful manipulation – “The Sport of Kings.”

Today is Kentucky Derby Day, a day in which the racing ruse is at its most obscene. Bob Costas and NBC Sports. Mint juleps and loud hats. “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports.” And all the while, the Racing people talk of the primacy of their “athletes.” We care (love, in fact), they say; our horses’ well-being shall not be…

Keep Animals Out of Hot Cars!

Humane PA

Blog by Elissa Katz, Humane PA President

I love warm, sunny days! Who doesn’t – right? Nothing feels better than closing your eyes and turning your face toward the sun, feeling the warmth on your skin. That is, unless you’re a dog or cat locked in a car.hot sun 3

We have all read of so many tragedies during so many earlier summers. Dogs and cats suffering horrendously from heat stress – seizures, vomiting, disorientation, brain damage, and even death – as a result of being locked in a car, even for a short period of time – while their person thoughtlessly runs an errand, visits with someone, or is otherwise engaged. On a warm and sunny day, the temperature inside of a car can exceed 100 degrees in a matter of minutes. And on a hot day, when we are wiping our brows and carrying water bottles in 90 degree…

Wildfires

By now Fort McMurray Alberta, and news of the massive wildfires that have swept through and consumed an entire city, has made the headlines. It is one of the most frightening and disturbing disasters with the largest displacement of people, that many including myself have ever seen in Canada.

The wildfires engulfed Fort McMurray in what can only be compared to as a hellish inferno. Images are surreal, the stuff made of nightmares and, as of today there appears no relief in sight. The fires have already ravaged more than 85,000 hectares of land, or to put it in perspective – areas large enough to consume the city of Manhattan, a few times over, and wipe out central London. It was reported that without rain and perhaps a miracle, the fire will continue to grow as it moves south. Help is coming in from all over to fight it, but…
