A Cow Raffle  is rattling PETA as a boy tries to raise money for a trip to Scotland.

The parents of a 14-year-old boy are furious after PETA protested their son’s cow raffle – and then sent the child a link to a website filled with former Playboy models wearing “lettuce” bikinis.

“My wife and I were incensed,” said Scott Ward, of Slidell, La. “It was definitely not appropriate for a 14-year-old boy.”

Ward’s son, Logan, is raffling the cow to pay for a summer trip to Europe. He was recently selected as an student ambassador for People-to-People and has to raise $8,000 for the 19-day journey.

The Chicks-on-the-Right website first reported the story of the Ward Family and Fox contributor Todd Starnes picked it up to bring more attention to the story wich can be read here – http://radio.foxnews.com/toddstarnes/top-stories/peta-protests-14-year-olds-cow-raffle.html

Due to the overwhelming response and number of requests to offer donations to Logan Ward and his family after our cyber-attack from PETA, we [sic Scott Ward, Logan Ward’s father] have created this page to allow people to donate directly to help send Logan on his trip. It’s also a place for those who want to donate because they are just as incensed with PETA and the other so-called animal activists as we were when they attacked our 14 year old son and our family. This page is NOT for ticket sales. Thank you for your support of our family!! https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/0TKGb

Are you kidding me? $97. That is generous of the seven contributors, but that amount of money is barely going to buy this kids meals for a day in Europe.
What a missed marketing opportunity for the meat industry to remind PETA that meat is good, you know, “Beef. It’s What’s For Dinner.”  The beef campaign is part of the US Commodity checkoff program that gets its funds from producers of an agricultural commodity program and uses the money to promote it.  Blah, Blah.  Where are the big meat and food players here?
Hello Tyson Foods!  One of the world’s largest processors & marketers of chicken, beef & pork, as well as all those appetizers and snacks ought to be chomping to step up and sponsor this kid entirely!  http://tyson.com Or maybe the privately held Cargill!  http://www.cargill.com .
There is nothing like putting a face to a marketing campaign.  Logan Ward seems like the all American kid with decent grades, a Boy Scout, etc.  The perfect face for the meat industry and a means to combat things like the “Lettuce Ladies” of PETA. Either the National Beef Association, Cargill, Tyson or some similar company needs to step up to the plate here and pay for this kids trip in return for an endorsement of self sufficiency, family values and in support the of the beef industry.

Today- February 1, 2009 is Human Day.  “Renri”, literally “Human Day” in Mandarin, is the seventh day of Chinese New Year and Chinese believe that it was the day when human beings were created. If the weather on Renri is fine, it can be forecast that God will grant good luck to all people on earth. Fireworks can also be lit, so Renri celebrates the birthday of fire as well.

Certainly there will be fireworks tonight in Tampa for the Super Bowl and the weather is expected to be clear and warm for the event.  The other thing making an appearance at the Super Bowl, will be prostitution.  Real men don’t pay for sex, but there are plenty who do.  The really sad thing is the amount of human traffucking- er, trafficking that occurs around large sporting events.

The majority of young male and female victims of sexual exploitation tend to be runaway or thrown away youth.   Some are recruited into prostitution by forced abduction, pressure from parents or through agreements between parents and traffickers. Controlled commercial sexual exploitation is linked to escort and massage services, private dancing, drinking, photographic clubs, conventions, cultural events, tourist destinations and sadly, major sporting events like the Super Bowl.  One-fifth of child prostitutes become entangled in nationally organized crime networks and are trafficked nationally to solicit their services.  http://www.usdoj.gov/criminal/ceos/prostitution.html

How does one advertise such a service?  Is it like standing out on the corner where someone yells, “Get laid here,” rather than, “Get your programs here?”  Ads on the Internet are one way Tampa police say they found out about numerous prostitutes coming to town during Super Bowl XLIII. “The reason we know that is we see a gigantic uptick in Internet activity,” Tampa Police Chief Bret Bartlett said.  http://www.abcactionnews.com/news/local/story/Tampa-police-plan-to-battle-Super-Bowl-week/3dGS8MxnO0iwXBCeNQCwmg.cspx

Human trafficking is nothing less than slavery which forces millions of people around the world into labor or sexual servitude.  Following illegal drug and arms dealings, it is estimated to be the the third largest illegal industry. 

Poverty, ignorance, superstition, social customs, greed, government corruption, and human cruelty combine to put families — particularly women and children — at risk. Too often traffickers are known to their victims as family members or neighbors.  Some had received an advance payment against their birth.   The images are often horrific and some can be seen here,   http://www.gtipphotos.state.gov/gtip.cfm?galleryID=563&id=1 .  Props to http://armybarmyremix.blogspot.com/ who keeps tabs on the buying and selling of people. 
The U.S. Department of State’s,  Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons (G/TIP), provides the tools to combat trafficking in persons and assists in the coordination of anti-trafficking efforts both worldwide and domestically.  http://www.state.gov/g/tip/.  Maybe the Obama administration will put as much effort to take steps forward in combating global slavery as on, combating the fallacy of man made global warming and a green agenda to create jobs. 

Ticket Solutions http://www.ticketsolutions.com/tickets.aspx?eventid=736731 is offering a 50 yard line seat for $3490 for the game.  I wonder what it costs for a boy, girl, or woman prostitute?  Certainly cheaper, but the cost of this societal sin is much higher. 
Does the Super Bowl culture sexual depravity, in and of itself?  NBC banned a racy PETA ad from this Sunday’s Super Bowl.  PETA  made 5 ads, not just 1 and all 5 ads are posted at  http://www.ickypeople.com/2009/01/watch-all-5-banned-peta-vegetarian-sex.html.
Sex may sell, but buying sex is just wrong on so many levels.  The reality that human beings continue to be bought and sold in the twenty-first century is an abomination, and so is paying $3490 for a ticket to the Super Bowl.
