Book-ending last night’s State of the Union address by President Bush, the Center for Consumer Freedom ran a series of our powerful TV ads, which reached millions of viewers. Given that President Bush targeted tort reform as a major issue, it was a perfect fit to air our humorous take on greedy trial lawyers plotting to sue food companies for supposedly causing obesity. Our ads also educated the audience about People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ (PETA) financial support for convicted animal-rights arsonist Rod Coronado. The effects were immediate: hundreds of people told their friends and family about our website, while thousands more added their name to our petition requesting the IRS revoke PETA’s tax-exempt status. If you haven’t already signed the petition, click here now!

While we received a handful of negative comments — some of which used words not fit to print in this space — we received plenty of praise. Here are a few viewer comments:

Not only should PETA’s tax exemption status be revoked, but they should also be added to the list of known terrorist organizations and their assets seized. We know they are the money behind the ELF and other terrorists who commit acts of terror in the name of animal rights. Thank you for taking up the fight against this evil organization.

I support the end of PETA.

I can’t thank you enough for doing something about what has been driving me crazy for a while … I just want to say how much I support your efforts.

Wonderful!!! I saw the PETA commercial and one of your obesity commercials and I could not believe what I was watching!! It is about time somebody goes on the offensive against these nuts! Your commercials were just great! You hit hard with the truth and that is what most people need to hear!! And as for the obesity issue — if any group deserves to be sued for problems that have been put on society, it should be the lawyers! … Your web site is now on my favorites!!
