    The annual White House Easter Egg roll is set to be held tomorrow, April 21st, continuing a long tradition of young children descending on the South Lawn of the White House to roll their Easter Eggs throughout the grounds. The annual event can be traced all the way back to the mid 1800's, where it used to be held on the grounds of the United States Capitol. It has always been one of the few times during the year that politicians from either stripe can shed their partisan bickering and show young children that there are times we all can get along. That is unless PETA decides to step in and try to steal the limelight.

    PETA, formally known as the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, is very upset that First Lady Michelle Obama is using real, not plastic, eggs for the annual event. The fact they are upset is not surprising, but the fact that the organization used three young girls in a video attacking the First Lady is a little out of bounds.

    I fully understand that PETA is against everything that involves animals of any kind, but I wonder if bringing in young children to prove their point will wind up backfiring. This stunt, while shedding light on their organization for a day or two, only goes to show they are so desperate for attention that they will use young children to get their points across.

    What does everyone think about PETA's most recent advertising targeting the First Lady? We're they out of bounds for using young children or is this just smart advertising because they got people talking about them again?

    The best thing is just to ignore PETA.

    I knew they were nuts already, but when President Obama swatted a housefly during a TV interview back early in his presidency and they were upset that he killed a fly...well, that tells you how crazy some of them are.

    They sent a "humane fly trap" to the White House so that President Obama could catch and release the next fly outside without harming it.

    THAT tells me how out of touch with reality that at least some of them are.

    The basic idea...be kind to animals is good, of course, but it is the extreme views that make me just ignore them. They are too crazy to pay any attention to, or waste any time on.

    PETA People Eating Tasty Animals I'm gonna BBQ some ribs later today and thoroughly enjoy them.

    While we are on the subject of PETA, why haven't we heard from them about the Nevada rancher stand-off where federal agents/storm troopers allegedly killed/slaughtered a couple of bulls when at least one of them was confined to a pen and posed no danger to anyone? Where is PETA on THAT?
