Why the warfare on Wildlife? [with your tax dollars]

April 19, 2015 at 2:24 PM | Posted in Think | 4 Comments

My interview with Camilla Fox of www.projectcoyote.org  should open the eyes of all Taxpayers who want to know about the horrors of warfare that the USDA and other archaic, asinine ‘Government Agencies‘ do to squander your tax dollars to appease a small group of bloodthirsty, downright ignorant, dangerous and what can really be justifiably described as psychopathic killers.

Take a look at the photos below and ask yourself if this practice of annihilating our last remaining Wildlife is good for the balance of the delicate Environment, Ecology, the Economy [your tax dollars squandered on killing], YOUR wellbeing, our family pets, and certainly for the lives of our innocent animals who are Sentient Beings who are not to be taken as “property” nor “owned” nor “enslaved” by any one person or group….

Why has not ONE United States President in the last one hundred years done anything to stand up, speak up, and stop this heinous, hideous warfare? These killing methods were invented in the 1800’s and have never changed in cruelty nor design.

What is wrong with a Society that finds this OK or remotely acceptable? Why are we not shown these images on National, Mainstream Media Television? Who wants to hide these atrocities from the view of the Voter and Taxpayer?

If you’re furnishing a new home or apartment, you could spend a small fortune to get the look you’re after. Fortunately, you don’t need to drop a bundle for a beautiful style that you’ll love coming home to each day. Read on for some key tips on how to save money on decor. With some creativity, your home will look anything but low-budget.

  1. Shop Garage Sales, Thrift Stores, and Consignment

Buying secondhand can be an ideal way to furnish your home at a much lower price point than if you were to purchase brand new furniture. If you have the patience to pick and the diligence to bargain, you can score some amazing deals. And for basic classics, don’t underestimate the value of Ikea.

  1. Focus on Linens

Updating your curtains or bedding is an easy way to get a brand new look without making a huge financial investment. In fact, these items often go on sale, so check the clearance racks regularly for a look you love at a cut-rate price. Throw rugs are another great way to add a room-transforming pop of color.

  1. Maximize What You Have

Rearranging your existing furniture can give a room a whole new look. You may even consider moving specific pieces from one room to another. If you can’t afford new furniture, think about slipcovers that can add color or hide flaws without emptying your wallet.

  1. Think About How You Use the Space

When you’re starting the process, consider how you use the room you’re redecorating–and how you’d like to be using it. Keep that vision in mind as you shop, which will help you avoid spending money on things you ultimately won’t use.

  1. Add Plants

Greenery is not only one of the hottest home decor trends for 2015, it’s a cheap and easy way to give life to your space. If you only have a small budget to spend on decor consider spending at least some of it on plants.

  1. Don’t Overlook Books

Not only are books a great way to add color and interest to your space, they can also serve a functional purpose as well. Use them to elevate a lamp that needs to be raised a few inches, or as a platform for your favorite vase. They do double duty as conversation pieces, too.

As you start the process of redecorating, have a budget in mind and stick to it. Knowing what you have to spend can help you maximize your funds and make some truly creative, stylish choices.
