Thought of the day
Every sixty seconds you spend angry, upset or mad, is a full minute of happiness you'll never get back.

The God of Israel spoke, the Rock of Israel said to me: 'When one rules over
men in righteousness, when he rules in the fear of God, he is like the light
of morning at sunrise on a cloudless morning, like the brightness after
rain that brings the grass from the earth.' 2 Samuel 23:3-4

Animal agriculture was under attack at the Animal Rights 2010 Conference and the Humane Society of the United States-hosted Taking Action for Animals, two of the nation's largest animal rights events. Both meetings were held in Washington, D.C. during July 2010.
AR 2010 and TAFA brought together more than 1,000 activists to discuss the political strategy of the animal rights movement. Speakers at both conferences provided participants with tactics to target the animal agriculture industry through demonstrations, litigation, and ballot initiative campaigns. Animal activist leaders taught attendees how to utilize social media tools to fundraise and share videos from undercover operations.
Key Quotes from AR 2010 and TAFA Speakers:
"These people are rednecks and we are superior."
- Bryan Monell, an activist who has frequently obtained illicit employment at farms and research facilities in order to obtain undercover video footage
"We should distinguish our message from less meat, because what we want is no meat."
- Carrie Packwood Freeman, Activist and Professor at Georgia State University
"Owning animals is the equivalent of slavery."
- Hope Bohanec, In Defense of Animals
"I have no problem with breaking and entering, destroying labs, burning buildings, and busting open cages."
- Camille Hankins, Win Animals Rights and spokesperson for Animal Liberation Front
"Any state with an initiative process is on our radar."
- Jennifer Hillman, Humane Society of the United States

The campaign is going great. Last week we received several major endorsements. We have received a number of good contributions. I attended the Montezuma County Fair and we were in the Durango Fiesta Parade and attended the Chuckwagon Cookoff. We have signs and would appreciate everyone putting one up. The quote of the day is from Thomas Jefferson.
"Cherish, therefore, the spirit of our people, and keep alive their attention. Do not be too severe upon their errors, but reclaim them by enlightening them. If once they become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress, and Assemblies, Judges, and Governors, shall all become wolves." --Thomas Jefferson, letter to Edward Carrington, 1787
