QUESTION: Do you have any pets that have made an impact on you
personally?

JOHN KERRY:

I have always had pets in my life and there are a few that I
remember very fondly. When I was serving on a swiftboat in Vietnam,
my crewmates and I had a dog we called
VC. We all took care of him, and he stayed with us and loved riding
on the swiftboat deck. I think he provided all of us with a link to
home and a few moments of peace and tranquility during a dangerous
time. One day as our swiftboat was heading up a river, a mine
exploded hard under our boat. After picking ourselves up, we
discovered VC was MIA. Several minutes of frantic search followed
after which we thought we'd lost him.
We were relieved when another boat called asking if we were missing
a dog. It turns out VC was catapulted from the deck of our boat and
landed confused, but unhurt, on the
deck of another boat in our patrol.

I also fondly remember a parakeet in college, Dodi Faustus. Dodi was
a smart bird who learned a few words of French and Italian, but not
smart enough to avoid having to be rescued from a tree once. My
daughters and I had a Golden Retriever named Winston.
Today, Teresa and I have a German Shepherd named Cym and a yellow
parakeet.



HOW ARE AMERICA'S BIRDS ASKING YOU TO VOTE?

83 FLEW OVER THE CHENEY NEST

500 cage raised birds were
released in front of Dick Cheney
in Ligonier Township, Pennsylvania
at a private club. Some could not
fly, never having moved their wings
in freedom. Perhaps they were
shot on the ground. Most could fly and
knew a few seconds of freedom in their
tragic lives before
they were gunned down. Cheney killed
70 of the powerless that day..
his companion
Senator Cornyn killed more.
Of the 500 birds released from
captivity, 417 were slaughtered
by his party.
Secret Service were in effect
human bird dogs. And in Maryland
Cheney has turned Camp David
into a shooting gallery.
His partner in the administration
George Bush vacationed for 5 days, hunting
with James Baker, one of the
partners with Bush Sr. in the Carlyle Group,
9th largest war profiteer.

Earlier, the weekend of 911, Cheney
had gone hunting in Poughkeepsie
NY and later with Antonin Scalia, the serial
killing executioner on the 18th Century
Supreme Court, he would
plot his attempt to murder Lady Liberty
while he blasted away at the
voiceless winged ones in an
illegal meeting, discussing litigation
pending before the Court.


83 of the 500 flew over
the war profiteers' cuckoo nest.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
(Whether or not an F15 fighter accompanies Air Force Two
as it accompanies Air Force One, these canned hunt pleasure
killing trips cost taxpayers millions each weekend.)

PROTECTION GROUPS

Kerry has a 100% legislative rating from many national

He has the strongest environment record in the US Senate..
Vote for the man who has been given a 100% rating in animal
legislation from Fund For Animals, Doris Day Animal League, HSUS,

SPECIFICS


Senator Kerry was the co-author with former Senator Bob Smith (R-NH)
of the successful effort to halt an annual $2 million subsidy for
the mink industry - terminating a taxpayer give-away to the
corporate mink industry. Kerry and Smith shepherded this amendment
through the Senate during debate on the Fiscal Year 1995 Agriculture
Appropriations Act, and they have repelled subsequent efforts by
legislators aligned with the mink industry to revive the taxpayer
boondoggle. Kerry has also been the co-author of letters in recent
years sent to the leaders of the Senate Subcommittee on Agriculture
Appropriations to increase funding for existing animal protection
laws, including the Animal Welfare Act and the Humane Slaughter Act.
Thanks in part to his leadership - and collaborating with the
powerful senior member of the Appropriations Committee, Robert C.
Byrd -- the Congress has provided more than $26 million in new funds
for animal protection programs in recent years. Kerry has
cosponsored almost every piece of animal protection legislation -
including measures to combat cockfighting, bear baiting, canned
hunts, puppy mills, the bear parts trade, the exotic pet trade,
steel-jawed leghold traps, and the abuse of "downed" livestock -
introduced on behalf of animals.

ENVIRONMENT


CHENEY INTRODUCED LEGISLATION OPENING SANCTUARIES TO TRAPPERS

Dick Cheney introduced legislation as Wyoming congressman to OK to
hunt, trap, & ski in National Parks & Forests
(many nations of the world have banned the steel jaw leghold trap ..
animals chew their paws off to get out of them, or die of thirst or
hunger, or have their eyes pecked out by birds of prey, or are
unable
to fend off attacks from other animals)

THOUSANDS OF PRAIRIE DOGS POISONED BY CHENEY APPOINTEE

The Safari Club (big game hunters) had one of their own appointed
to guard the nation's animals at the US Fish and Wildlife Svc.
Recently
thousands of prairie dogs were poisoned by that agency in the Conata
Basin of S.Dakota

CHENEY OPENED PARKS TO MINING DRILLING TREELUMBER INTERESTS

Sponsored bills for amending CAA; user fees; grazing; energy Cheney
sponsored the following bills in Congress:

H.R.1089 (1987): A bill to amend the Land and Water Conservation
Fund
Act to permit the use of park entrance, admission, and
recreation use fees for the operation of the National Park System,
and for other purposes.
H.R.1066 (1987) and H.R.5667 (1986): A bill to provide for a
comprehensive energy policy for the US.
H.R.2790 (1985): A bill to make permanent the formula for
determining fees for the grazing of livestock on public lands.
H.R.1568 (1983) and H.R.5625 (1982): A bill to designate certain
national forest system lands in Wyoming for inclusion in the
National Wilderness Preservation System, to release other forest
lands for multiple use management, (logging
mining drilling) to withdraw designated wilderness areas in Wyoming
from minerals activity, and for other purposes.
Source: Congressional Record Jan 1, 1987

PAWN OF MINING INTERESTS
Sponsored bills for extending mining leases
(In Nevada, a Canadian company was allowed to buy millions of
acres for $5 an acre)
Cheney sponsored the following bills in Congress:
H.R.1434 (1987): A bill to amend the Surface Mining Control and
Reclamation Act to permit states to set aside up to 10% of the
annual state allocation from the Abandoned Mine Land Reclamation
fund for expenditure in the future for purposes of abandoned mine
reclamation.
H.R.1934 (1985): A bill, the "Mineral Lands Leasing Act", which
allowed continued ownership of coal leases even if they were not
developed for over ten years.
Source: Congressional Record Jan 1, 1987

Cheney co-sponsored the following bills in Congress:
144. H.R.4489 (1986):A bill to provide for ski areas on national
forest lands, and for other purposes.
H.R.1493 (1984):A bill to redesignate public land in Alaska to allow
hunting.
H.R.4962 (1984):A bill to specifically permit trapping in certain
units of the national park system, subject to such reasonable rules
and regulations as may be prescribed.
H.R.2837 (1984):A bill to establish a National Outdoor Recreation




Dick Cheney said he disagrees with a decision by the National Park
Service to ban snowmobiling in Yellowstone and Grand Teton National
Parks.

An environmental study says the machines are noisy, polluting and
are
not allowed by federal regulations. In addition, they injure
animals,
destroy sapling trees, leave
ruts which cause erosion and eventual mudslides.


INVADING JADE TEMPLES WITH OIL
"We support the moratorium on drilling off the coast of California,
but there are places where we ought to develop those resources. The
Arctic National Wildlife Reserve is one of them." Cheney in 2000
debate.

VOTED AGAINST CLEAN WATER ACT AND AIR POLLUTION SANCTIONS
(MORE BRAIN DAMAGING MERCURY IN WATER FOR AMERICAN CHILDREN)

Cheney Voted against Clean Water Act and air pollution sanctions
[In Congress in the 1980s], On the environment, Cheney opposed
refunding the Clean Water Act. He voted to postpone sanctions
slapped on air polluters that failed to meet pollution standards.
And he voted against legislation to require oil, chemical and other
industries from making public records of emissions known to cause
cancer, birth defects and other chronic diseases.

LYNNE CHENEY'S HUSBAND OUTSOURCED HER AS A LOCKHEED
LACKEY...........
FORMER BOARD MEMBER OF WORLD'S BIGGEST ARMS MONGER.. WHILE
HE WAS CONTROLLING HALLIBURTON

(NPR disallowed a question of Ms Cheney on this subject)

http://www.publicintegrity.org/pns

Topping the list was Lockheed Martin, with $94 billion in defense
contracts over the six-year period. Boeing was second with almost
$82 billion. Well behind those leaders were Raytheon (just under $40
billion), and Northrop Grumman and General Dynamics, with nearly $34
billion apiece. Those five companies tower over all other defense
contractors. It's worth noting that they collect additional
billions, not included in the figures cited, through joint ventures
with other companies.

Lockheed Martin made the obsolete shuttles which sent 7 astronauts
and thousands of NASA GLENN captive animals to their deaths over 5
states.

PRO APARTHEID
Dick Cheney voted as a Wyoming congressman for the apartheid
govt. of South Africa


CHENEY: FIVE DEFERMENTS
CHENEY: FIVE HEART ATTACKS
the former haven't kept him from being a chickenhawk
while the latter haven't kept him from eating artery clogging ribs
on
the campaign trail

GAS PRICES
As CEO of Halliburton, Cheney came home from Saudi Arabia
and announced to a small group of oilmen his good news: higher gas
prices for Americans.
http://www.ohiogasprices.com

SCOFFLAW

The constitution forbids 2 people from the same state serving
as president and vice president. And so Cheney who was living in
Texas
claimed his Wyoming vacation home as his legal residence.

CANNED HUNTS

Canned hunts in which animals are held behind enclosures
9 feet (or other) high. As they shake in fright,
'sports' hunters blast away at the trapped creatures.

They have been advanced by Republicans Pataki of NY,
Bush of Texas, Bush of Florida, Keating of Oklahoma,
Taft of Ohio etc.

MILITARY ABUSE

Animals like humans are killed by the
bombs falling in Iraq, Afghanistan, Colombia.
Their dwellings are burned.
Dogs as well as humans die, forced into
minesniffing.
http://www.peta.net/feat/military


FACTORY FARM BANS

Small farmers are driven out of business and pricegouged by factory
farmers. Factory farms have been advanced by Republicans and are
opposed by small farmers' unions.

Dole in NC has been silent about the state's role as the nation's
biggest pig abuser and solid waste polluter.
http://www.hogwatch.org

Voinovich in Ohio invited a factory farmer banned in Germany
because of toxic insecticides, endangering workers and
cruelty to animals.. to open up in Ohio. The red carpet
got its color from the blood of the hapless birds.
http://www.upc-online.org http://www.mercyforanimals.com

Untold millions of chicks die yearly of thirst,
heat, cold, disease, being smashed by sudden braking,
abandonment,hunger etc.

ENERGY

During the campaign the unelected current VP
said he would continue to use coal, i.e. decapitate
mountains in WV, KY, PA, OH... erasing habitat,
eliminating streams, killing animals.

DISASTER RESPONSE
Many shelters have barred animals from
shelters at the same time that evacuations are sometimes
forced.

Animals captive in cages in factory farms, zoos,
barns, laboratories
have frozen or boiled to death in metal sheds
during electricity lapses, have drowned abandoned

SLAUGHTERHOUSE WORKERS
have high rates of injury from being kicked by terrorized animals,
from the cold, from exposure to diseased blood and feces
dumped in fright. Illegal aliens are drafted by GOP policies
to do the work. Mexicans, less desperate for dollars, have in
many cases given way to Guatemalans.

COCKFIGHTING



While Senator Lott - was removed from his Senate leadership
position by an Eli Lilly-Karl Rove conspiracy,
roosters of the world rejoiced. He had blocked for years
a federal ban on cockfighting, a 'sport' which has
been banned in all but 2 states. Lott's Mississippi has
farmers who breed cocks for those 2 states.

CAMPAIGN PRIORITIES



1. environment, animal protection, spiritual, women's rights,
anti war, human rights, African American and Latino issues groups..
every American..

2. contacting each religion about its nonviolent roots.

3. the Senate races Dem sweep

4. the House races Dem sweep

5.. the so called swing states

6. registering many of the 55 to 60% of Americans who are
unregistered
because of assassinations, Diebold trickery etc.

7. positive thought, visualization, prayer, cheer

8. colleges with easily tapped large pools of unregistered voters

9. THANK YOU GOD AND THE PEOPLE OF THE USA
FOR THE INAUGURATION OF KERRY

room after the Bush family tried to block publication.

George Sr called Doubleday to attempt a block of Kitty Kelley's
book.

CBS, Doubleday, and Hatfield have all come to find
erased files about the Bush past in many areas.


LAB ANIMALS


50,000 captive lab animals drowned a few years ago in a Texas flood
at the University of Texas, whose billions of dollars portfolio was
privatized by the current Republican presidential candidate for his
friends. No researchers drowned.


ANIMALS TRANSPORTED TO SLAUGHTER

The Senate has
advanced somewhat the protections for animals in transit (trains,
buses,
planes, trucks etc) but untold millions die yearly of thirst,
heat, cold, disease, being smashed by sudden braking, abandonment,
hunger etc.

VEGAN VOTE
Who should vegans vote for in the next presidential election?
Despite the common characterization that all vegans are liberal,
veganism and animal rights are not single-party issues. There has
been much support from both ends of the political spectrum for
animal
rights issues. And thank goodness for that! But, considering the
candidates' records on animals, I must strongly recommend that every
vegan and animal rights activist stand firmly behind John Kerry in
the upcoming election. Kerry's outstanding voting record on animal
issues far outweighs the unfortunate fact that he is a hunter.
Please
read the following information from the HumaneUSA website:



Humane USA Endorses John Kerry for President
President George W. Bush has gone out of his way to attack animal
advocates on his presidential campaign website.

Can you believe it? President George W. Bush has gone out of his way
to attack animal advocates on his presidential campaign website!
That-
s right, in their bid for reelection to the White House, the Bush-
Cheney 2004 team posted a report for hunters titled ?John Kerry on
Hunting,¦ which attacked not only the Democratic nominee, but also
the entire animal protection community! The Bush-Cheney website
includes these direct quotes:
ÂE?John Kerry has the highest rating on the Humane Scorecards
sponsored jointly by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS)
and the Fund for Animals. Both groups are firmly committed to ending
hunting in this country.¦

ÂE?HSUS- website says -sport hunting v the killing of wild animals
as
recreation v is fundamentally at odds with the values of a humane,
just and caring society- (emphasis added).¦
(http://www.hsus.org/ace/12035; viewed 7/5/04).

ÂE?Heidi Prescott, the National Director of the Fund for Animals,
said in a 1995 speech that the Fund for Animals is -unalterably
opposed to the killing of animals for sport- (emphasis added).
(Speech by Heidi Prescott to the 4th Annual Governors Symposium on
North America-s Hunting Heritage, August 1995).¦

(All quotes from ?GeorgeWBush.com :: John Kerry on Hunting,¦
http://www.georgewbush.com/News/Read.aspx?ID=2930; viewed 7/20/04)

Based solely on the positions that animal advocates take against the
recreational shooting of animals, the President-s campaign took aim
at groups that work on a broad range of animal issues v from pet
overpopulation to animal fighting to protecting habitat. He-s
slamming two organizations that work to protect animals from
cruelty,
and he-s belittling his opponent for having a strong record on
matters relating to the humane treatment of animals.

President Bush, though, has always portrayed himself as a friend to
ttrophy hunters. He recently hosted leaders of about 20 hunting
organizations, including the Safari Club International, National
Rifle Association, and U.S. Sportsmen-s Alliance, at his ranch in
Crawford, Texas. And as Governor of Texas, he was named ?Governor of
the Year¦ by the Safari Club v one of the world-s most influential
and extreme trophy hunting organizations.

Among its other notable programs, the Safari Club provides 29 ?
hunting achievement¦ awards to its members who kill animals
throughout the world. For instance, to win the ?Africa Big Five¦
award, a hunter must kill a lion, a leopard, an elephant, a rhino,
and a Cape buffalo. The hunter gets credit whether he shoots the
animal in the wild or at a canned hunting facility either here in
the
United States or at one in South Africa.

To win all 29 ?hunting achievement¦ awards, a Safari Club hunter
would have to kill 322 different species and subspecies of mammals.
The number of hunters in this pantheon of shame increases every
year.
It-s just sickening.

After President Bush assumed office in Washington, D.C., he
appointed
Matt Hogan to be the deputy director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service v the number two position at the very agency charged with
protecting wildlife and enforcing laws such as the Endangered
Species
Act. Mr. Hogan was not only a trophy hunter himself, but he also
happened to be the former chief lobbyist for the Safari Club.

So, it-s Hogan who now helps shape federal wildlife policies and who
often represents the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on Capitol Hill.
It is the equivalent of Dracula guarding the blood bank. The very
people who kill and otherwise exploit wildlife are setting the
rules.

President Bush has not only appointed bad people to positions of
power, but he-s also been hostile to the environment in which wild
animals live. He has advocated drilling for oil in the Arctic
National Wildlife Refuge, and he has reversed a ban on road building
in 58 million acres of our national forests. With more roads blazed
through our national forests, we-ll see more poachers, more hunters,
and more loggers despoiling our natural heritage.

Those are just some of the reasons why Humane USA is endorsing John
Kerry in the presidential race. In truth, we are disappointed that
John Kerry is also a hunter, and that his campaign has pandered so
much to hunting groups. We need to look toward a day when all
politicians recognize that the animal-friendly vote is much more
crucial to political success that the hunting lobby.

But in terms of public policy, if not in personal participation,
John
Kerry is the clear choice for people who care about animals. He has
been a strong advocate and supporter of pro-animal legislation
throughout his political career. He has regularly scored high
ratings
on the Humane Scorecard, most recently scoring 100+ during the 108th
Congress. Among his efforts to secure protection for animals:

ÂEKerry was the co-author with former Sen. Bob Smith (R-NH) of the
successful effort to halt an annual $2 million subsidy for the mink
industry v terminating a taxpayer give-away to the corporate mink
industry. Kerry and Smith shepherded this amendment through the
Senate during debate on the Fiscal Year 1995 Agriculture
Appropriations Act, and they have repelled subsequent efforts by
legislators aligned with the mink industry to revive the taxpayer
boondoggle.

ÂEKerry has a notable record of co-sponsoring animal friendly
legislation, including support of measures to combat cockfighting,
bear baiting, canned hunts, puppy mills, the bear parts trade, the
exotic pet trade, steel-jawed leghold traps, and the abuse of ?
downed¦ livestock.

ÂEKerry has also exerted leadership in securing important funds for
animal protection. In recent years, he and Senator Rick Santorum (R-
PA) co-authored letters sent to the leaders of the Senate
Subcommittee on Agriculture Appropriations to increase funding for
existing animal protection laws, including the Animal Welfare Act
and
the Humane Slaughter Act. Thanks in part to Kerry-s leadership v and
his collaboration with the powerful senior member of the
Appropriations Committee, Robert C. Byrd (D-WV) v the Congress has
provided more than $26 million in new funds for animal protection
programs in recent years.

The President of the United States has a major impact on public
policies that affect the lives of animals. The Animal Welfare Act,
Humane Slaughter Act, Horse Protection Act, and a long list of other
federal laws need proper enforcement if their original purposes are
to be fulfilled. The president also shapes how Congress views new
legislative proposals to protect animals from cruelty and abuse. We
need John Kerry v not George W. Bush v in the White House.

Next year, we expect the Congress to consider bills that would crack
down on ?puppy mills¦ v where dogs are housed in squalid,
overcrowded
conditions and bred relentlessly to supply the pet trade, even
though
there are thousands of healthy and adoptable animals at shelters.

The Congress is also expected to take up legislation to require that
antifreeze manufacturers add a bittering agent to their product.
Tragically, thousands of pets and dozens of children each year die
from ingesting sweet-tasting, yet toxic antifreeze that spills in
garages, driveways, or roadways.

And the Congress will probably take up legislation to ban the
slaughter of horses for human consumption. Every year, more than
50,000 horses are slaughtered in the United States, and they are
sold
to France, Belgium, and Japan for human consumption.

Finally, Congress is expected to consider legislation banning the ?
canned hunts¦ of exotic animals such as zebras and giraffes, where
the animals are raised in captivity, hand-fed, trapped behind
fences,
and shot by trophy hunters at point-blank range. These are the
same ?
canned hunts¦ promoted by President Bush-s friends at the Safari
Club! We need to take the White House back from the Safari Club and
their cronies!

Ask Commission to Withdraw New Death Sentence for Mallard Ducks in
Florida!
As of July 1, 2004 the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission will allow people to obtain a free permit to kill up to
12,000 mallard ducks per permit each year. The intent of this new
Mallard Control Permit is to stop domestic, non-native mallards from
interbreeding with native mottled ducks. But the new rule and permit
contain glaring loopholes and will result in much animal suffering.

Re: Kerry Animal Rights Record Cheney Canned Hunts
23 Oct 2004
Such an animal lover. How can we tell the last goose to be killed that he died in a noble cause - the campaign of John Herman Munster-Kerry? I am waiting to hear the animal rights wackos complain about Kerrys little staged bird hunt the other day. Bet I won't!
Re: Kerry Animal Rights Record Cheney Canned Hunts

No candidate has a 'good' animal rights record until his platform is to set free every animal in every cage. Regulating vivisection is like regulating torture... irelevent.
Re: Kerry Animal Rights Record Cheney Canned Hunts
26 Oct 2004
Well, there are two things I would never do: Vote for Kerry or advocate animal rights.

While I am a good master to my pets, I also eat steaks and ham sandwiches, neither of which would be possible without hunting or farming. But I would never vote for Kerry based on his hunting trip. I know he is not man enough to hunt, so he loses points for being a poser.

The reason I am not an advocate of animal rights is because I am not an animal. I eat animals. (This does however make an interesting argument for cannibalism). As a human I trust my own good judgment (bessewissen) on what is a good way of treating animals, though I know they prefer to live in the wild and be left alone in peace, usually eating other animals.

Similarly I think I know better than some advocacy group what is best done with a fetus (eg letting it be born). But since I am not a fetus, I do not see myself advocating fetus rights. I do not imagine or long for a day when all animals, fetuses and Big Dig workers will be free. Each has his own place in the hierarchy of the food chain. Kerry's is as a condiment. See Heinz Ketchup.
