">>We also have a duty to be careful with how we represent our efforts and the families that we assist. For one, we do not have a right to slander people with abuse until after they have had their day in court.

Tsk. If you're going to start hollering about slander, then you really need to have a better understanding of what the term "slander" MEANS first.

"Slander" or "libel" apply to accusations of specific actions, not opinions -- and they must be made against specific people. If I say "SgtStinky has beaten his dog to death", and you are innocent, that is slander. If I say "SgtStinky is an idjit", that is simply an insult. You can't take me to court for calling you names, as long as I have not accused you of specific actions that you have not actually committed -- and you can't take me to court for insulting a group of people, either."

Never said you slandered anyone, but I could see how you are inclined to such behavior since you are already calling people idiots, which is my opinion.

Question, are you an animal rights advocate?

And I ask this question because you either like to argue endlessly with no regard to the point or you have an agenda, such as animal rights. Stating that you are here for the animals and not the people is the same junk that the HSUS puts out. Which is OK if you want to engage in that sort of debate, I just ask you to represent your position openly.
