Birely Tannery – Animal Torture Reminder

in Opinion/Uncategorized by

I’m curious why so many groups are fighting to save a building that represents the violent death of innocent animals – the Birely Tannery in Frederick. The demolition of the tannery is one of the final obstacles in the construction of a new hotel/conference center in downtown Frederick.Dragging-Indian-Leather-Cow

Protesting for the sake of it?

As usual, you have the same cast of “Profesters”, i.e. Professional Protesters, descending in kill mode on a project that will benefit the Frederick community in many ways including additional business downtown and increased tax revenue.

Fools truly do rush in.

The irony of this “profest”, however, is that those against the demolition are, in essence, siding with the preservation of a building that was dedicated to the destruction of innocent animals. While they wanted every trace of Taney and other symbols of past wrongdoing erased from our community, they have embraced a facility that was dedicated to killing animals. Are they really that cruel? Is there not a pet owner in the opposing group that is ashamed?

The tannery industry has a long history of exploiting and killing animals using inhumane methods. Per PETA, there are “14 Things the Leather Industry Doesn’t Want you to Know“. The graphic violence of that industry is depicted in this video.

I’m hopeful that the HPC and/or the commissioners come to there senses and rid our landscape of this awful reminder of our past. There is no glory in saving a facility that would gladly turn your dog or cat into a leather shoe.

Enough IS Enough!

“Buddy, your teachers ARE the good guys, they’ve just been told some fibs by some very mean people who don’t care about them and it’s made them angry.”

“You care about them, don’t you Pappy?”, he asked. “Of course I do buddy, I’ll see what I can do to help them.”

That’s how my Plan for Teacher Prosperity (PTP) started.

It’s really quite simple. I started out making $18,000 per year and rarely made over $75,000. Yet, I was fortunate enough to meet a financial mentor in my early twenties who told me this, “if you educate yourself about how money works, you will have guaranteed prosperity.” I followed his simple advice, used my humble earnings carefully and made a fortune.

Making an average of $50,000 per year for 40 years yields $2 MILLION dollars. What will you do with YOURS?

So, I decided to develop The Plan for Teacher Prosperity
