I'm sure before this century is over,
people will look back on these meat eating times as the dark ages. I mean even if you don't care about the animals or the planet, why would any
sane person want to eat cut up animal insides?
The answer is....they've been brainwashed by the old ones & never gave it any thought.
Now we know.....so now we have to stop this crazyness.
It's not pleasant to be around people who still eat meat because they have that unpleasant dead meat smell about them.

After not eating meat for 25 years, its hard to imagine why people even do. There are so many tasty humane alternatives to meat that don't inflict cruelty on other living things. I have never been healthier either. I run, work out, have plenty of energy and never get sick and I don't depend on eating the bodies of another living creature.

Funny, I was pretty sure plants are alive.

Dear vegetarian Wackos..

I'm sure glad you've found a lifestyle you're comfortable with.. I hope you stay well and healthy. As long as it doesn't cost me anything or affect my life in anyway I love to read when people are comfortable. I personally can't wait for my next steak dinner, cooked medium rare with a baked potato with bacon and butter. Mmmmm Mmmm. Oh, by the way Humus isn't what I'd call a good alternative to a nicely grilled steak.

This story has inspired me to take my family to The Diamond Grille tonight for steaks. It sure will beat the spaghetti dinner that we were planning.
Thanks for the idea, Connie!

for all of you out there enjoying your steaks tonight- remember this- there is a government allowable amount of sh*t and pus in your meat. you see alot of those cows Sh*t themselves when they are slaughtered and their heavy corpses regularly slide off of the meat hooks and fall into the pools of blood and Sh*t on the floor and no one washes that off for you...bon appetit!

think whatever you want - what do i care if you don't believe it, or if your choice of groceries has fecal matter on it- i know people who own a meat packing plant who'll tell you its the god's honest truth. there's an allowable amount of pus and blood in your milk too! lol.

Fecal matter exists on organic produce, the sacramental fetish of the veggie crowd, as well. Remember the e-coli on the green onions and other salad items that sickened many? I always ask veggies how eskimos and others survived where agriculture was impossible.

Since man began walking this earth, hunting cultures developed out of neccesity to survive. Some cultures then domesticated animals so that families could settle instead of following game. Dairying then developed.

I think vegetarianism may indeed be healthier, but please spare me the sancitimonious self-congratulation many in that crowd exhibit.

I have cows and I raise them for one reason only. To slaughter them and eat their meat. I like to eat my steaks rare & bloody. Whether it be hamburger or steak, I eat red meat everyday! I eat vegetables also.

All this talk about food is making me hungry....Let me go into the barn and kill a pig. I am hungry fot some bacon. And maybe some pork chops tonight durng the superbowl. Thanks for the idea. Whats the difference, we grow these poor vegatables only to violently pluck them from the earth, cut them and dismember them so that we can eat them. This is the same thing we do to the animals. What is the difference? You secret meat lover!

i'm certainly not congratulating myself for anything- i just thought they might want to know what may be lurking on their steaks! and you are absolutley right - there are contaminants in alot of foods- there are an average of one to two maggots in every frozen pizza you buy and allowable amounts of rat hair and bug parts in your peanut butter. I've seen animals slaughtered firsthand - and it isn't something i would personally choose to promote or participate in... really its as simple as that. there is nothing natural or healthy about today's "factory farming" methods- it is a situation far removed from the agricultural past- check out this article at www.nytimes.com by mark bittman entitled "The World: Rethinking the Meat Guzzler" from the jan. 28th 2008 edition... interesting no matter which side you're on.

Great NYT article, Royal. Thanks for sharing it. Everyone should read it but most will not because they don't want to know where their meat comes from. Ignorance is NOT bliss people.
