Not to try and push my beliefs on anyone... But your all very concerned about bettas being in small bowls (Right on! Go for it, its very wrong) But you believe people should be doing more about these animals rights, but fish are just as disposable to the people who make these things, as baby cows are to anyone who drinks a glass of milk everyday.
Nothing is going to change until we learn compassion for all animals. I believe a fish has every right to live a nice life, but so do cows, chickens, and pigs, Anything that lives, breathes and feels deserves an equal chance at life. Just because they can't talk, and they aren't that bright, doesn't mean they don't they feel pain and suffer. They value their lives as much as you or me do.
I probably hate PETA more then any of you. For the fact that people instantly assume I have nothing worth while to say because I don't eat animals so I must be some crazy peta tree hugging hippy.
Don't get me wrong, I'm a tree hugging hippy, but I hate PETA. The only thing they are good for is spreading the word, but they do it in such uncivilized ways no ones listens to them and just hates them.
