To Swat Or Not To Swat

Earlier, I watched the news showing a video of President Obama who SWATTED A FLY on his bare hand and killed it instantly. The news then saying that because of that incident, the PETA organization reacted on the action done by the President. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals or PETA is a non profit and the largest animal rights organization in the world with 2 million members and counting. Read through this article because it is pretty interesting {HERE}. The Media and "Others" made a hush on that incident. Let me know what you think about it. If a FLY pestering you, would you swat or not to swat?

On the other hand, PETA did not condemn President Obama instead, they sent the President a gift which they called humane bug catcher.

PETA's Mission includes:
  • promoting alternatives to eating animals;
  • opposing fur and products made from animal skin;
  • opposing laboratories that torment animals;
  • fighting the abuse of animals in circus training camps;

    They point out that animals are not "Ours to eat, wear, experiment on, or use for entertainment".
This issue is very delicate for PETA because they support total compassion to animals and that includes The Famous FLY who is now dead. They just wish that people will act wisely and mercifully toward animals.

I will be honest with you guys, I did the same thing what the President did. The only difference was, it's not ON CAM and I was using the swatter. I hope PETA will not condemn me too. Sometimes I act and think later, part of my human nature.


  1. Ingon ani na lang ate amy kung sila kaya gidapuan what would they also do hehehehe that is just reflex reaction ok ra na ate

  2. i watched that on news also.. nakup, for sure, ganon din gagawin ko. :)

  3. Di ba? covered pala ng PETA ang pests? pano na kung lamok yun?

  4. Natatawa naman ako sayo Mae, tagalog ko nalang kasi mahirap na eh. Dami kaya mga tao dito na sa dami ng dapat tugunan eh ang langaw pa...HAHAHA. Kaya nga, nasa gitna ako. Galing nila kaya, kumakain kaya ako ng karne ng baboy, isda, pwera lang langaw.LOL! Sa dami naman ng problema sa mundo at dapat pansinin,ito pa naging tema sa ngayon. Hayy naku. Kakaloka!Pano kaya kung lamok? Pakagatin nalang natin? Hahaha. Baka bigyan nila ako ng gift, tatanggapin ko din.

    Nuts and Carms- reflex reaction nga, tao lang ako, ganun din gagawin ko...LOL.

  5. This is a delicate issue indeed. Instinctively, I think anyone would be hypocritical to say that they wouldn't have done the same thing Obama did. I honestly can say I would have done it, too. That doesn't make anyone bad when it's a natural reaction for almost everyone.

    Nice post Amy!:)

  6. I expected this reaction from certain aggrupations, it just so hppen that Obama is famous and a President of the Philippines. If he was not a President would they care to come out and say it was inhumane to kill a fly?
