It Was a Fly

We've all seen video or read an article about President Obama's impressive fly killing ability. I, for one, don't consider this an actual news story, so I haven't paid a lot of attention.

Until now.

Because PETA apparently thought he should not have killed it.

The group has sent Obama a device that traps a fly so it can then be released outside.

It was a fly.

And he did give it a warning.

Maybe PETA should be a little more concerned about things that really matter. Cruelty to animals is unacceptable, but I wish I had been faster last night in fly killing while walking Lola. I was bitten four separate times by what I assume were yellow flies. I wasn't bothering them, why did they have to bother me? I would have gladly killed them if I had seen them.

the things people find to scold the president about.

children go to bed hungry all over this country.

gays just had their marriages compared to incest.

after 40 years of work, a river in Ohio was just upgraded from the worst category to the second worst.

highways and bridges in this country are crumbling.

I could go on and on but this is a comment on your blog. so, I'll wrap up with: PETA is bent out of shape about a fly. somehow, I doubt they're an endangered species.

Please don't ever cut your comments short, feel free to speak your mind and let me know your thoughts. That is the purpose of this thing anyway.

But I definitely agree with you. Of course I have a friend who thinks the "gay marriage thing" is along the same lines as this fly, while I believe it is a symptom of the deeper inequality in this country.
