PETA hopes billboards spark controversy at Thanksgiving dinner tables

There are 74 comments on the Prince George Citizen story from Sep 27, 2012, titled PETA hopes billboards spark controversy at Thanksgiving dinner tables. In it, Prince George Citizen reports that:

The billboards, which will also run in Winnipeg and Ottawa, will read: 'Kids, if you wouldn't eat your dog, why eat a turkey? Go vegan.' Lauren Stroyeck of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals says the ad's intent is to get children and their parents thinking about why some animals are consumed as food but not others.

My comment was not on the validity of the argument, but on passing off someone else's words as your own. But if you wish me to comment on the validity of the notion that plants are sentient life forms, then here goes:
There is no credible scientific evidence to support this idea.
From Wikipedia (the preferred source of posters on this forum):
Plant perception or biocommunication is the idea that plants are sentient, that they respond to humans in a manner that amounts to ESP and that they experience pain and fear. The theory is dismissed by scientists as plants lack a nervous system.

Was that so hard? Instead of talking about core issues you attempt to attack others instead. Perhaps you should stick to the issues.

No we were natural scavengers, eating other predators left overs. That made our Brains bigger we got smarter and then became predators. Without eating meat and wearing furs, we would have never evolved to the level we have. Giving idiots like you the chance to choose not to eat meat. We are primates, almost all primates eat meat, whether it be animal or insect.
what about the one that died from a eating a vegan diet.

This is interesting. Hunter, please explain how eating plant life is correct and why you feel that they don't deserve the right to live. Vegan, please explain why hunter deserves to push their ideas as the only correct ones.
First of all: I honestly do not see why someone's personal dietary decisions are so threatening to you. If someone chooses not to eat meat and/or animal products then why does that bother you?

Secondly: Just so you know: Plants do not have a central nervous system. Therefore, they cannot feel pain like animals can.

WRONG. we were NOT natural scavengers, we scavenged when we had no other choice! BIG difference, but a corpse eating brain dead m o r o n like you wouldn't know the difference between what is NATURAL and what may have been an only choice for a period of time. Some of us are smart enough to think for ourselves and we learned that we thrive far more healthfully on the NATURAL
based diet. It takes INTELLIGENCE to be vegan...that's why it is waaaaayyyyyy above your empty head!

FYI- less than 1.4% of what chimpanzees eat is NOT vegetation. You wouldnt know this because all the corpse consumption has blocked your ability to think rationally or logically. Go eat some more decomposing corpses, because the more corpses you eat, the sooner you will stop wasting space.

Perhaps you don't understand what "natural" means. If you did, you wouldn't be saying this statement or anything else in the rest of your post. Perhaps you could benefit from taking a course on evolution, biology or something. You don't appear to have even a basic understanding of the terminology and/or principles.

I guess some corpse eating animal murdering psychopath COWARDS like you don't know that humans are NOT natural predators. We all know that cowards like you are insecure, and completely clueless. We also know that you obsess over ANIMAL RIGHTS day in and day out because you fear ARAs and you prove it every day!

Happy and Healthy VEGAN Children are taught to have compassion and empathy for ALL animals

http://www.worldanimalfoundation.net/f/VeganC...

It takes INTELLIGENCE to be a healthy, thriving vegan and that's why slobs like you don't get it and you never will!

Enjoy your next uncontrollable cowardly temper tantrum!

See, you still don't know what "natural" means. Following a vegan diet is "unnatural" as one needs to take B12 supplements for proper nutrition. Taking supplements is not natural. Getting B12 and other nutrients from natural sources is. Like I said earlier, take a basic biology and/or evolution course. you lack even a basic understanding of the basic terms.

for crissakes just stfu you pitiful, witless whiny beotch. We're sick of your sorry crybaby fat ass wasting space. Get lost, TROLL. You know NOTHING about being VEGAN because being vegan takes INTELLIGENCE. Fat ass slobs like you sit on your ugly asses bitching and whining about things and people you know NOTHING about. Go eat your rotting corpses, and be sure to eat several rotting corpses because the more corpses you eat the sooner your worthless ass will stop wasting space on the planet.

wrong. instant fail. the word natural can have many meanings, depending on context and usage.

http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/nat...

but in this case i'm sure it means either normal or derived from nature.

this definition from wikipedia for natural foods is quite interesting, as it highlights the inappropriate and basically useless definitions for natural and organic, as it applies to consumer goods and foodstuffs here in the united states.

*****
“Natural foods” and “all natural foods” are widely used terms in food labeling and marketing with a variety of definitions, most of which are vague. The term is assumed to imply foods that are minimally processed and do not contain manufactured ingredients, but the lack of standards in most jurisdictions means that the term assures nothing. The term “organic” has similar implications and has an established legal definition in many countries and an international standard. In some places, the term “natural” is defined and enforced. In others, such as the United States, it has no meaning.

so yeah thanks for proving once again that you are a witless and delusional "brain on dead" superficial idiot. and your cherished trollspew is pathetic and obscene, fodder for dull and apathetic minds.
