I have tasted their pizzas at home after ordering from a Pizza Hut nearby when I lived in Cuffe Parade and hated the tste and found the ingredients inferior.
The pizzas of another American chain that has set up shop in Mumbai is the California Pizza Kitchen whose wood fired pizzas are better than the ones made by Pizza Hut but the best thin crust pizzas in Mumbai are to be had at the Trattoria in the Taj Vivanta. Heavenly pizzas.

Vegetarianism - you pluck or harvest produce off a tree/plant/crop without killing it and as known fresh produce grows in place of the plucked off ones like say the re-growth of hair in place of the cut hair and besides you harvest grains after the life force leaves the plant.
Collateral damage - killing of pests arises through the application of chemicals.
Sad.
However, killing of life forms takes place even through the act of cooking, heating water, flooding, torrential rain, drought, earth quakes, volcanic eruptions, predatory habits of carnivorous animals, freezing, wars, capital punishment, walking or coughing.
So, until a higher consciousness-force that is potent enough to abolish death (of every life form) can manifest in the terrestrial nature killing remains part and parcel of life.
However, in man the highest terrestrial forces of consciousness manifest and man can choose his responses and has the capacity to rise to the higher planes of consciousness via ascetic or yogic discipline and in this way man can alter his destiny and even become immortal and invincible with the descent of a higher unifying force like the supramental into his being and can in addition become one with the whole of the universe through an uplifting and unification of his consciousness of the subject with the object kind of union.
If this so-called barbarous entity called G-d made animals to be killed this very G-d also ordered human sacrifices, killing of babies, eating of human flesh, stoning to death gays/adulteresses/disobedient sons, cruelty to slaves and women and murder of people who opposed him or who worshipped a different G-d.
What kind of a G-d is this? LOL.
Violence and killing indicate savagery and lack of the higher power to control and manipulate a situation without resorting to violence or bloodshed.
Transformation via the higher consciousness-force is the key word not killing which is an aspect of an unregenerate power.
So, killing is not the answer to any solution - at least civilized people do not kill fellow human beings and they seek to minimize the destruction of lower life forms as far as possible through the adoption of life-affirming practices like vegetarianism.
Hugh--- vegetarianism= mass murder of living creatures.

Joel---Vegetarianism - you pluck or harvest produce off a tree/plant/crop without killing it..

Hugh--Really? I am sorry but I could not get beyond the first few words of your vegetable matter. Please try again.

When doing so, please include in your discourse the absence of KILLING of lettuce, cabbage, celery,cauliflower, onion, and things like thyme,garlic, peanuts and peas etc. Tell me about "fresh produce grows in place" of harvested peanuts, garlic etc.

Besides all of the above, fruits plucked off trees DIE. Let me explain. ALL living things GROW and FEED. Now when you pluck an apple in its early stage of development it will DIE. It will NOT do as LIVING things do meaning it will not GROW or FEED. It will wither and DIE.

I am unconditionally guaranteeing you that these things are TRUE.

Please take it from here, dear.

You pluck produce off a tree/plant without killing THE TREE/PLANT and as known fresh produce grows on the same tree/plant in place of the plucked off ones. This can be compared to trimming/cutting of hair with hair regrowing in place of the cut hair and besides you harvest grains after the life force leaves the plant.

Helpful Jewish Tip # 341

Do NOT put your challah in to bake on automatic timer overnight.

Your entire house will smell of baking bread and it will invade your dreams. You will wake up hungrier than a zombie in Topix.

What's wrong with my assertions about Zionist control of key global institutions? I can back up my claims with proof and strong leads just as it can easily be shown that the bible preaches evil."

You claim to be able to back up what you say but never seem to actually back it up or give any real information.

First you have to define Zionism.

According to the definition of Zionism it is one who basically supports Israels right to exist. So do you include everyone who supports Israels right to exist in your global conspiracy?

Next prove that those you consider "in control" are actually Zionists and in control. You also have to show how those with totally opposite agendas are working together. What makes these people more Zionist than something else possibly political outlook.

For someone who loves to portray himself as genius you seem to be thinking too much and lost your way or just full of hate seemingly based on ignorance.

You imply another here is into conspiracy theory what about yourself?? Arrogant much

So you can talk about clothes science and elitism watching from above. Now talk about the subject of the forum.

Maybe it's a regional thing but I've always found Walmart employees to be helpful and courteous. Their stores are, every time I've visited, clean, well-organized and well-lit. The merchandise, while inexpensive, is the same merchandise being offered in other discount chains such as Target, Ross and KMart. In rural areas of the US, they have brought the consumers choices and savings that were never available to them in the past.
As for their employment practices, they are the largest private employer in the US by a pretty fair margin. That's a benefit to an awful lot of employees. True, they aren't the highest paying jobs in the US but they aren't the lowest either. Many people in the food services industry are paid significantly lower than Walmart employees.
My experience in the US, across the US, is not consistent with your experiences (possibly in Asia?)

There are major differences in products between Target and Walmart. Walmart has their own specs. Home Depot works the same way, though maybe a little less anal. I.E. the same brand will be inferior when bought in Home Depot (or Walmart) than in another store.

You are grasping at straws, if that's all you can find that's weak, imagine supporting Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi with all of their skeletons.
You are not in that type of skilled profession that requires a certain standard of care. You are in retail (if I remember correctly) which isnt dependent on continuing education in order to be up to date in order to practice correctly.

I think this is because you live in a semi-rural setup on the outskirts of a city.
Actually I live right in the middle of a 52 square mile city of 122,000. We are part of metro-NYC, with a total population of 20 million.

In the US it is quite common these days to have farmer markets set up within the urban areas. We can also buy organic produce in many regular supermarkets as well.

India would be wise to learn from us.

Any & every. Without the equivalent of a constitution that the group must obey, any group will eventually become a tool for good or evil at the hands of the most charismatic member of the group. And yes, this DOES certainly apply to governments too, if they do not follow their constitutions...

what is right and just according to those, true to G-D. is not considered as right and just, to those enemies who have never been true to G-D here in TheTorah.
