Passion = Truth? How Jeffrey James Francis Ircink Sees The World? I love when people are passionate about something. That surging of emotion is the one honest measure of what truth is. It's a truthful display of how a person really feels about something or someone at that particular moment. That passion IS truth.

Ingrid E. Newkirk. "Get a life!"

I hate it when people use the phrase, "get a life" (or the phrases, "lighten up" and "you have way too much time on your hands", for that matter). However, in the case of PETA president Ingrid E. Newkirk, the phrase fits.

Our own Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan was the receipient of PETA's 2012 Bad Dad award for taking his daughter deer hunting with him.


So, and your organization are behind many great causes which I support. Which begs the questions:  Why don't you limit your activities to areas where you at least have a chance to effect change (which is what your organization is all about) instead of fumbling uselessly over some misguided publicity stunt to get your organization in the news? All you're accomplishing is the risk of alienating potential supporters AND running the risk of being considered "crackpots". Paul Ryan is not going to stop hunting with his daughter. If his daughter loses interest, then she loses interest. But it won't be because of a "bad dad" award.

It's like years ago when PETA petitioned the Green Bay Packers to change their name (Packers) as it referenced the meat packing industry which first sponsored the team. I mean, if God came down to earth and asked the Packers to change their name they wouldn't. again. Why makes such useless, innane demands that will NEVER be met? Idiocy.

Newkirk writes, “I live only for [animals], because if I didn’t have them I would have killed myself a long time ago.”

Hmmm...I would think a PETA person would even frown upon that, Ingrid.
