It Hurts (Originally posted Thursday, November 16, 2006)

So, like, on Monday, the House of Reps sent this bill up for approval that was designed to prosecute violent animal rights activists. It's called the "Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act". Except what it really can do is allow the arrest, and trial as a Terrorist, anyone caught at a peaceful protest, if they could be shown to have decreased any profits of the organization under protest.
Somebody remind me again, what is so terrifying about hippies at a sit-in?
To prove the irony of it's own existence, this week also happened to be the week the government chose reveal the newest plans for the next D.C. monument: a statue of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
It hurts, being treated this way.
Seriously, call your State Representative
