A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.


Threatened: Your Right to Speak for Animals – 12 November 2006
By Mary T. Hoffman

Tomorrow – Monday 13 November 2006 – is the day the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act (AETA) H.R.4239/S is likely to be voted on.

AETA is a very obvious attempt by the powerful animal exploiting industries to silence those who try to speak the truth and expose the horrendous conditions rampant behind closed doors.

The fact that these exploiters have so easily gotten their way in the Senate makes it imperative that you join those who care, and act now to stop AETA from becoming law.

We faxed our Representative and briefly and politely said:

“H.R. 4239/S would take away civil liberties which are the foundation of this country and is opposed by more than 100 non-violent animal protection and social justice organizations, including the National Lawyers Guild, Humane Society of the U.S., League of Humane Voters…”

Please contact your Representative now and urge that they oppose this Act (H.R.4239/S) that has already been passed by the Senate.
