You call exterminators to kill hundreds and thousands of them. You step on them and throw poisons on them. Yet when we control one(at a time) roach, it is inhumane?
The people moaning need to get their heads checked.

THIS is what sticks in my craw...
We stand in the gas station checkout line, and where we get to the front, there's two jars; one for a homeless pet shelter, and one that goes to an orphanage or battered children's shelter, or something like that.
GUESS WHICH ONE HAS MORE MONEY IN IT?
Without fail, it is almost always
the jar for the animals.Why?
This either makes us esxtremely noble as a species, or incredibly stupid
, because it means we would rather be concerned with the well-being of an ANIMAL than an actual human.

Life is life.
That being said, there are much more cruel experiments being conducted on, for instance, chimps, who are very intelligent.
that ever happens, we're so far out-wrought in that fight that we might as well paper-bag the head and take it lying down, because we can't even solve local issues, hunger, energy, or national and diplomatic crises, much less an actual threat from the outside (of our atmosphere).

No, he's a human, and I'm right there with him.
Humans first, with any of the fervency that requires.
That being said, we are not
allowed to be irresponsible with our planet, it's resources, or the things on it under our watch.
