Animals Can't Talk

More than a few are beginning to think that animals are human beings.

Signs that read “Deer Crossing” and the like are going to continue to pop up throughout our country including Avon Lake, but who are these signs for? Deer cannot read, do not obey the law and probably will cross where they wish. Although adorable companions, it is hard to remember the last time that the news reported an animal talking, thinking or providing significant input for the benefit of society. Yet, these signs cost taxpayers like so much of government.

Dogs, cats,  whales, seals and deer are animals that might enhance a human’s life, but all cannot read, write or think. They are animals. Yes, people dress them, buy them extravagant blinge and do other strange things with them; however, animals are not human. They are on this earth like trees to make humans’ lives better. As humans we must be kind to them, eat them when hungry, feed them when they are, but remember they are here to enhance our lives.  Besides, it appears that this gesture of kindness to animals does not extend human to human. This President’s  Obamacare appears to welcome abortion of innocent babies. It is painful to think that there are those who  cry for seals while Obamacare  never blinks an eye at abortion.

Somewhere the advancement of society has been limited by animals and the unscientific malarkey of loons. America has had to halt drilling, construction, experiments for medicine and cosmetics  and much that might benefit humans.

Yes, signs are important-- to humans; “Stop” signs, and others are more than just costly decorations  scattered along  the roadways. However, depending on the school district,  most humans can read them, but animals not so much.

Well said, J Oliver! The fact that an average adult dog has about the same intelligence level as a three-year-old human has been known for decades. And the cognitive skills of many other animals are far greater than the mouth-breathers like Ms. Wilhelm can wrap their (pin)heads around, as well.

In Pennsylvania not so long ago, a car struck a deer that was crossing the road. Deer can be very large, and this one weighed 600 pounds. All four people in the car were killed. Maybe a deer crossing sign might have helped? Oh no, of course, deer can't read, so it would have been a waste of taxpayers' money.

This comment re animals not being able to read....also applies to some bloggers. Is there any way this particular blogger can be blocked from spewing ignorance????
