Quoted from your last e-mail...

"By comparison, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is a $41 million nonprofit with 740,000 members, People forthe Ethical Treatment of Animals is a $24 million nonprofit with 800,000members, and the Fund for Animals is an $8 million-a-year nonprofit with200,000 members. Among HSUS adversaries, the $1.7 million U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance and Foundation has 35,000 members."Altered Quote shoud read...

By comparison, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Humans is a $41 million nonprofit with 740,000 members, People forthe Ethical Treatment of Humans is a $24 million nonprofit with 800,000members, and the Fund for Humans is an $8 million-a-year nonprofit with 200,000 members.

It occures to me that if we spent as much time providing this much attention to health and well being of each other, animals would benefit due to agreater understanding of symbiotic relationships.

The problem with that is...

1. People have greater needs and it takes much more money to take care of them cutting profits.

2. People can speak out against cruelty, animals just duck and run. It seems to me that the lack of attention to "humans in need" is in effect,cruelty to humans in the form of neglect.So let all of those 1,835,000 members each donate $5.50/year each to the Humanity cookie jar. That's over 10 million a year. $10,092,500 to be exact. My families grocery bill is $600/mo. Divided by $10,092,500 = 16820.83 months or 1,401 and 3/4 years.or$600 x 12 = $7200 x 1500 families of 4 (6000 people)= $10,800,000.It is my opinion that focusing on humanity instead of animals is the key to crime reduction and family dysfunction and reduced psychological illness in America.

The money saved from the monitoring and policing of those issueswould easily feed and house a few animals as well.
