    The guys first post on a hooker review forum is a agenda containing links to over 8 hours of video propaganda that is most definatly slanted to the ULTRA LEFT agenda.

    Mods please delete and block this guy.

    I'm stockpiling plastic straws. I have about 80 of them from McDonalds, still in their original paper wrap.

    I try my best, when I have time, to shop at the farmers markets and buy my meat from family farms. Admittedly, I have been buying conventional meat and eggs a lot more than I used to out of convenience. School, family responsibilities, work and sleep... I often wish there was more than 24hrs in a day.

    On the topic of animals used in biomedical research, it is a necessary evil.

    Many scientists believe we are in the midst of the 6th mass extinction.

    Why I defend animal research... In my former career I used to work with people who had neurodegererative diseases. Watching people slowly (or sometimes rapidly) deteriorate neurologically is horrific. Animal research is horrific as well, but for the greater good I think it's worth it.

    The only inconsistency is that humans show a greater degree of selflessness and altruism to other animals than other species do. Generally speaking, animals don't tend to restrain themselves from eating something it considers food, or from infringing on the territory of a less dominant species, if it has a desire to. Speciesism is rampant in nature. We are the abnormality.

    But, we are clearly superior to all animals. I mean, opposable thumb to grip weapons, pull triggers, and a big brain to figure out best ways to kill each other and anything else that moves or respires.

    The cows would kill, eat us and dump the bones in the ocean if they could.

    We are just lucky to have ended up on top of the playground castle.

    As Fiddy said; "Started at the bottom now we're here". After we make the planet uninhabitable (for us), the roaches can have their turn.

    I think dogs are better than cats, and I don't like bunnies but I'll feed them if they cuddle me. Are fish a species? They can be pretty cool too.

    Every unique group of animals is a species.

    Fish are the coolest, yes.

    If your going to consume another, once living being.....remember it gave its life for you to consume it.
    Don't waste it's protein source if you can help it......
    Slaughter plants are not nice places to visit, and it's ok to have your meat introduced into your diet in a nice neat clean package, bought in a grocery store, and have someone else do your killing for you.
    It's not a pretty thing to watch, and not for everyone.
    We forget that most of us are meat eaters, and we are near the top of the food chain . The animals we consume eat some of the products not fit for human consumption.....making feeding people more efficient, and less wasteful.
    You must remember that food is very readily available to us.....it's not that way in some parts of the world.
    Those people don't care how ethically produced it is....that is luxury that only some of the world has.
    Consider yourself fortunate that you can even consider the topic.
    Having said that....people who produce food for the first world consumer, have come a long ways...and perhaps we can go further, but all that comes with costs, and the consumer has voiced that they are willing to pay for a better, and more ethically raised product.
