In regards to Mr. Warwak, it seems such a shame that he can't understand or comprehend the written word.
I understand the art path now...
I have posed questions to him that he does not answer.
Non-sense is in fact only non-sense to those who do not comprehend (17+ IQ points over the average omnivore and all).
Negation is not an argument, nor is it a competent defense.
His words to those of the world of comprehension do speak volumes of his intellect (or the lack thereof).
It would do Mr. Warwak well to be able to answer questions put to him by those who will be determining his
future employment status - or the lack of it.
A few more questions - Does Mr. Warwak actually think about the things that he types?
Is he delusional?
The only space in the inanne negations of Mr. Warwak seems to be that located between his ears.

YOU don't appear to be the brightest bulb on the marquee either.

Who Am I?

I am a person who would like you to answer questions, not spout veganvangelism

I have asked you these questions to wit:

Who hired this guy? Who mentored this guy?

I wonder about this individual - does he wear shoes? Drive a plastic car (which by the way may harm the environment more than it benefits same)? Pedal to work? Live in a grass hut?

In the current topic:
Do you wear canvas shoes?
How about clothes dyed only with berry or soy-based dyes?
Do you refuse to wear a belt made of nothing but rope or cloth?
What does your carbon footprint look like?

Furthermore:
You don't eat meat but what about your lifestyle?

Is your consumption of veggie-based products limited only to food?

If it is, isn't that a bit hypocritical?

If you use a leather or any other animal byproduct based article or object, do you expect the outside of an animal to be used but the inside discarded?

I have asked you these questions and you have not answered them.

To reply to your question again; not being one to shy away from an answer:
Do you advocate using the wrapper, but tossing away everything else in the animal?

Isn't that being a bit wasteful?

Kevin, I am try to take you serious, but it is harder with every post. Makes me think you have some secret agenda. Why do you care about this so much. AnotherKevin said, "This guy makes me want to get in my Hummer and go to my favorite fast food joint and order the foie gras and spotted owl deep fried belly buster burger.Yum Yum!!" So I find it hard to even address you as having any level of compassion, again, this is not about me, even though you would love that - it is about them not doing their job and going out of their way to fool simple minds

Lemme enlighten you a bit (I think I am up for that formidible challenge...): I pedal to Whole Foods with my canvas totes (and take public transit to distant destinations). I have canvas shoes, although I do have leather ones as well. I used to be more strict with the shoes thing, but I discovered that even manmade footwear can contain glue made of animal by-products. So I have allowed the exception of leather in shoes, although in the future, I will probably stick to vegan shoes, which do exist. They are more widely available (I don't buy shoes off the Internet) now and if well-made, then the high cost is worth it. But the point here isn't "who is the perfect vegan?" but the fact that WE ARE DOING SOMETHING! Unlike people like you who scoff at the notion of giving half a damn about the future of this planet, the animals suffering, the ravaging of natural resources used to harvest the dead flesh industry and how it could be used for farmland and save the world. Eff your ilk's selfishness! Dear God, have you all no shame and sense of responsibility?(By the way, I think people look absolutely IDIOTIC behind that ugliest of cars--the Bummer..er, Hummer! LOL!)

Veganism belongs in the pantheon of busybody moralist movements with the temperance movement and 19th century Methodism. Perhaps its goals might seem laudable on paper, but the result is the same, complete with shrill rhetoric and the desire to tell others how to live.

Its all well and good for students to be exposed to different ways of thinking, but once that shades over into propagandizing then the teacher should be fired.

And yet you fail to mention that there is a poster in that school's cafeteria promoting milk by the Dairy Council. Hmm...someone's been cherry-picking the facts! We are bombarded with propoganda regarding dead flesh and animal secretions ad nauseum. The only reason people have to be preached to in the first damn place is all the selfish %#%$ who consume with no thought of the destruction they are doing! The USA has 4% of the world's population and uses 30% of its energy. For shame!

Thank you Berwyn! Well said. The very same things I am blasted with are the things the meat and dairy industries do - indoctrination - and guess what, those Milk Mustache posters do have a towering presence and place of what one trusts to be truth - don't you think hanging high above eye level, the celebrity with bovine breast milk on their face, preaches values and morals? This is the American belief system. Using others, with no regard, is acceptable. As soon as the child adopts this mindset, universal law takes over for breaking that first tenant on life. Thou shalt not kill. Humane Education, coupled with a Vegan Lunch would heal the world. Such a simple change, why fight it? You can eat your meat. Let the kids know the truth for the survival of our race.

“Our task must be to free ourselves— by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty” Einstein

We had a discussion online about him in a Tribune comments section and I wrote a comment critical of his behavior in the classroom. He wrote a message back to me saying I just didn't get it and that I could sit in the corner with a roast beef sandwhich. I didn't care about that remark, thinking it was a good natured rib. But then he said that he and the kids would go on to create a better world which I thought was kind of creepy.
Yeah, didn't Jim Jones say the same thing?

Lettuce sandwich,
Yes James M. and Jim Jones sound very much alike; but, lets be nice and stick to the topic instead of attacking poor James M. who was raised to believe society's lies. He's just ignorant, but, still we shouldn't attack James Jones' character. Just listen to his message and we won't have to smear him - he doe sit himself.

Dave Warwak received a strong warning today from his hometown police, during the town’s annual homecoming parade.

Accompanied by his dog, Warwak allegedly entered the town’s parade and passed out small cards to children.

Police stopped Warwak, escorted him home and instructed him to “stay away from the town’s children”.
The warning came in response to parent and teacher complaints who were in attendance.

At particular issue with police was Warwak telling children, Santa Claus is not real.

The card’s front reads:
Remember the Santa Claus lie?
One lie is so bad, some people prefer to keep it hidden.
So hidden, some never find out!
Do you want to live a lie?

The back reads:

Look-up “Factory Farming” Look-up “Vegan”
“Naming a rock, a banana, does not make it food”

A teacher of ten years in Illinois, Warwak was recently fired for his vegan views. Warwak filed an appeal in response to his termination. No date has been set.

Vegans are taking back the Holidays.
Halloween is first up:
The campaign consists of passing out small business cards to children wherever they may be.“Thanks to compassionate people and their extensive connections all over the world, animal rights groups, vegetarians, vegans, and humane educators will be passing out business cards to children wherever they may be.” Warwak adds,“Groups are hitting the streets, during times when children are most likely to be out and about. Groups are already planning on a full force presence on Halloween. Even vegans who stay home will be passing out vegan candies accompanied by a message of love.” Then Warwak proudly proclaimed,“So far today, I passed out 34 cards!”

God sees you when you're sleeping and knows if you've been bad or good.
Santa is not God
Christmas is a celebration honoring the birth of Christ
Santa hijacked Jesus's birthday and made it about material objects as rewards and bribery for "good" behavior = indoctrination of our youth.
Jesus is about truth and love of life and Santa made Christ's message of love, one of lies and materialism.
Santa wears fur, uses reindeer as slaves, eats animal flesh and drinks the blood and secretions of animals (milk) and cookies.
The Resurrection of Jesus has also been hijacked by the Easter Bunny, the "sacrificial" lamb (Jesus requires mercy not sacrifice), and the incredible, not edible egg. Seems man is not happy with reality.
Bad men are just immature selfish little boys who have acquired the power to prevent reason from taking away their toys. A good man helps the bad man improve himself by unearthing and embracing his soul.
Peace, love, and understanding for all,
Warwak
