now, if only china will address the slaughter of elephants underway to satisfy its hunger for ivory. we are in the midst of the most horrific elephant slaughter in history, with over 30,000 elephants poisoned, shot and hacked to death for their tusks. china is the largest market for illegal ivory — i’m hoping this new environmental protectionism will extend beyond the borders of their own nation, and into the illegal animal body parts trade for which they are grossly responsible.

@tatman They view human beings as slave animals, like mules hooked up to pull a plow, or turn a mill. So what makes you think they give a dam about hurting the feelings of a few elephants? hahaha. But hey, just make sure you and your family keep buying all their cheaply-made Chinese crap at Wallyworld.
