KRUEGER SLAMS PIGEON SHOOTS
Our Town

September 22, 2008

State Sen. Liz Krueger sent a letter to the Pennsylvania State Legislature to push a ban on live pigeon shoots, which she says causes poachers to target New York City. There is a bill sitting in the Pennsylvania legislature that would ban live-animal shoots.“If the Pennsylvania pigeon shoot market for live birds to target in these competitions were ended through legislation, these pigeon nettings would undoubtedly dramatically decline and most likely, cease,” Krueger wrote.

Good Conduct Society Protest at the Erotica Convention

September 20, 2008

We protested at the Erotica Convention in Edison, NJ over the past weekend. The convention was a sight to behold. Several hundred people were lined up to buy tickets at $50 a head. The crowd represented a cross section of delegates from the DNC and RNC conventions, truck drivers galore and plenty of motorcycles parked outside the Convention Hall. I’d say 99% were men ready to drool.

Fortunately, I was given a media pass and could enter through a separate door. I was handed a black miniature skirt fit for a midget with a sexy saying in white letters I won’t repeat for fear my mother is reading this. I can either wear it or dry my cat. We’ll see.

Outside the hall two members of my Good Conduct Society were handing out flyers with their picket sign STOP BIRD PORN. The security guards eventually came along and ordered my associates to retreat to the edge of the parking lot that contained about 500 vehicles, mostly pickup trucks with oversized tires. There were no people. So they placed flyers on windshields.

Inside the convention there were about 50 display cubicles with vendors hawking their wares. You could buy T-shirts with sassy comments such as “kiss my ass” or “let me suck your banana.” Very charming indeed! The rest looked like a regular sex shop but more crowded. Yes, I’ve been to a sex shop, I am over eighteen, thank you very much. And not a hypocrite, I think what people choose to do with their mutual consent is fine, it’s involving defenseless creatures like birds in their fantasies is what really bothers me. Anyway.

The VIP lounge was off-limits to the media. But I peeked inside the curtain and there were young ladies wearing only thongs exercising on poles while others were keeping men’s laps warm. What else is new.

There was a stage with an MC and a rock band that presented shows every half-hour. The crowd of men clicking their digital cameras took pictures non-stop of their friends posing with scantily clad women from the different displays. The nearby hotdog stand was really busy. I was often crushed between bodies that threatened to abuse me. But I escaped unscathed.

My thoughts are still with birds and their dilemma to live and mate in peace. Bird Watchers want to intrude on their privacy for personal passion. It’s not fair, it’s not right and I intend to do everything in my power to expose this insidious, shameful, human addiction.

Good Conduct Society update

September 10, 2008

We attended both Democratic and Republican conventions and I am very pleased and even overwhelmed with the degree of awareness we were able to raise. Sure, some people laugh. But they would probably also laugh at puppies being skinned alive and claim it’s not for real. Makes me sick to my stomach to even think about how insensitive humans can get.

Overall, we were getting an amazing reaction at both conventions. Pedestrians stopped to listen and learn, one kid even told us a story of his grandfather who used to be a bird pornographer but realized how sick it was and mended his ways. It made me think. We should probably start and grow a movement of Birdwatchers Anonymous to help the ones who are ready to fight their sick addiction. Not a bad idea! Please stay tuned!
