Here’s something to fire you up on a summer Thursday. As reported on CattleNetwork this morning, Bank of America is now offering “The Humane Society of the United States® WorldPoints® Platinum Plus® Visa® Card.” Thank BOA. Help provide funds (25 cents of every 100 dollars charged) to an organization that essentially misleads people to get their money to fund their goal of a vegetarian society in which human beings have no more “right” than any animal. Perhaps they don’t understand that this group has nothing to do with local animal shelters. In fact, this group hurts your local animal shelter by taking funds from people who think they’re supporting them.
This is worth a protest since this is such a well funded group that has publicly pledged to fight for legislation that will hurt America’s farmers and ranchers. They intend to do this in every state in the country and are hard at work as we’ve seen in Ohio this week.
The CattleNetwork story has a draft letter you can use with the address of where to mail it (Bank of America Corporate Center, 100 North Tryon Street, Charlotte, North Carolina 28255) or you can do what I did which was search their website and found that Nicole Nastacie is BOA, Corporate Philanthropy. I sent her an email.
Post Update: The CattleNetwork received a response letter from Bank of America which shows that the matter is being looked into at a pretty high level. Let’s hope they decide to terminate this program.
