VP Cheney Enjoys Slaughtering Birds for Fun

According to This Article on MSNBC our selected VP likes to slaughter birds for fun.

THE INCREASINGLY low-profile V.P. was taken to Pittsburgh by Air Force Two earlier this week where his “security detail loaded him and his favorite shotgun into a Humvee,” and went to Rolling Rock Club in Ligonier Township, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. There, he and nine other hunting buddies shot at 500 ringneck pheasants, killing 417 of them. The V.P. was credited with offing 70 of the birds, as well as an unknown number of mallard ducks.

The shooting spree prompted an outraged letter from the Humane Society. “This wasn’t a hunting ground. It was an open-air abattoir, and the vice president should be ashamed to have patronized this operation and then slaughtered so many animals,” Wayne Pacelle, a senior vice president of The Humane Society of the United States, wrote in a letter of protest, according to ThePittsburghChannel.com. “If the Vice President and his friends wanted to sharpen their shooting skills, they could have shot skeet or clay, not resorted to the slaughter of more than 400 creatures planted right in front of them as animated targets.”

I’m hardly a vegetarian and I’m not against hunting. But this was hardly hunting. It was a killing orgy for people who like to shoot things just to watch them die. I guess it’s what you do for fun when your job involves sending troops to Iraq to do that to children. It reflects on the character of the man and the character of the Bush administration. These people kill for fun. Nothing more.

This just goes to the “morality” of this administration…Just like picking off thousands of people in other countries under false pretenses. Bush demanding an apology from Kerry over using expletives when Bush was caught on tape calling a reporter an “asshole”. Who are the real assholes???

You know this is a very good article, and although I am only 17 and still in high-school (Which im sure those who will read this message will critisize me for) I am learning how corrupt our government is and how no matter what they say they DO not care about society! Marc Perkels site is my bible (Sory to relate it to that – beings im not religious. Keep up the good work and thanks for allowing me to learn more about this corruption.

Well, Marc, that IS the damned American Elite Caste for you, after all! You’re absolutely right, they derive immense gratification from killing. It’s one of the few ways they have of feeding their pathetic egos, the primary alternative being pushing other people around, inventing rules for everyone else and making them jump through their contrived hoops. The very essence of sociopychopathology in a nutshell!

One of the biggest lies of the sociopsychopath-turned-politico: that he or she is just a “servant of the people”.

Only the tip of the hideous iceberg that is the current administration. This “oiligarchy” has no care at all for life. They send only what they consider as the “useless eaters” to the slaughter of war, while they themselves hide behind whatever loophole they can to protect themselves and their families from such horrors. Cheney is the most disgusting person to hold public office, and for anyone to think he is not intimately connected to Haliburton is blind, nay, dead.
