    If you need to replace the tires on your truck or car avoid Michelin. It seems Michelin has joined up with the Humane Society and is raising money for them. The same group that wants to end bear baiting as well as all forms of hunting in America. I saw their ad on TV about this the other night and I have gone to the website and know that it is true. I've sent them a e-mail about this and I'm sure if they bother to respond it will be that they are only trying to help sick and injuried animals. Any response I'll post back here.

    Thanks Moose! Good info! Keep us posted. Funny thing less than a year ago I took the Michelins off my car and replaced them with Goodyear. Glad I did.

    Response I got

    I also noticed that the link from their site to the AHS has been removed. Based on the response I got as compared to some others got early on I think they might have gotten the message.

    To be honest with your Moose, I'm in shock. If you get a response, it is usually a canned blah blah blah. Thanks again! Here's a similar story for you.
    On another message board, there was a man telling about going into a mall somewhere in Iowa I believe and went into a bookstore. My memory is failing me here but it was one of the ones that is owned by Borders. He wanted to buy a particular hunting magazine that a buddy had told him about. When he got in the store he noticed they didn't sell any kind of hunting mags so he spoke to a cleck that told him they didn't sell them because they didn't want to "offend" anyone.
    I couldn't believe so I got more information and contacted Borders about it and then came the proverbial run around. What angered the guy the most was they sold all kinds of pornography and GI joe shoot em up chop em up stuff.
    Any, enlightened to read a response like that.
