Chicago tried banning it. Now California wants to do the same. But what's so controversial about foie gras, the fattened liver of a duck or goose that many diners consider a delicacy? "Foie gras is universally cruel," says animal rights activist and founder of the Animal Protection and Rescue League Bryan Pease.

Force feeding an animal to the point that it's organs swell is just about as cruel as you can get.

If you are opposed to how geese are treated in the production of fioegras, do what I do and don't eat it. Problem solved!

Animals cannot speak for themselves, so I make it my business. I hope you choke on all the cruelty you swallow one day, that would be karmic justice.

Actually, Lippy, karmic justice would be YOU being eaten by a bear.

And BTW, while your self-aggrandizement is just adorable, you only get to speak for yourself.

Look up the definition of Karmic justice, then come back here and apologize for typing such a stupid comment.

So I guess, according to you, all those pro-lifers who speak for unborn children should just shut their mouths? You don't get to say who I speak for. If everyone thought like you, there would still be slavery in America, thankfully not everyone is as selfish as you.

Yes, the pro-lifers also only get to speak for themselves. Ever heard of Roe v. Wade ? But then unlike you, I am not deluded enough to invoke abortion or slavery in a feeble attempt to equate human and non-human animals. Glad you are Having fun chasing your tail, Lippy.

That would be a tragic encounter with a bear, not karmic justice, assuming I'd be stupid enough to get that close to a bear, nope. Your comment makes no sense and is stupid. Now apologize.

Your delusion is believing that your existence is more important than an animals. No one will notice that the man who never goes outside is gone.

Determining "good" and "evil" are in the eye of the beholder. One man's good may be another man's evil. Your subjective reality differs from mine. The notable difference between us is that I am not trying to impose my subjective reality on you but you refuse to show me the same courtesy. I see that as Utopian dementia.

I am an animal... the most important animal. For me, it is only necessary that I believe this.

I think you suffer from dementia, and a plethora of other mental diseases. If you think I'm "imposing" my views on you, then stop following me around the Animal Rights forum like a little puppy dog. You read and reply to my comments with your typical trollish banter, and I respond, that's pretty much how it goes. Fact is, you can't stand the fact that others don't hold the same shallow, simple minded opinions as you. Sorry to break it to you buddy, but not everyone buys into the "human exceptionalism paradigm" as whole heartedly as you do, not everyone is so tragically brainwashed.

Delusions of grandeur on your part, Lippy. I'm just refuting your AR lies and disinformation. You should be used to that by now.

That must be why 99.5% of the U.S. population consumes meat and or uses animal products, huh Lippy. If you wanna talk facts, your AR cult represents less than 1/2 of one percent of our population. How are things out there on the lunatic fringe ?

Rather than getting angry at people who point out your logical/scientific inconsistencies, perhaps you should make statements that are valid and follow the laws of logic.

The fact that you call animal activism a cult order shows just how little you understand. And unlike you, I don't need cheerleaders to back me up, I'd stand just as firm in my beliefs if I were the only one who believed in them.

Her hatred seems directed at anyone who eats meat or is a veteran as well.

In order for me to get angry, I'd have to care about your opinion.
