  •  Thank you for this. (14+ / 0-)

    I've been a vegetarian for over 14 years and Thanksgiving is tough.  It is surprising to me, in this progressive community, that animal welfare isn't more prominent.

    Yes, I realize there are a whole lot of human welfare issues that have to be resolved, but I wish do wish critter rights had more of a voice here.

      all of us. Yet we mock those who think that maybe factory mass killing of animals for meat might just be not only inhumane but environmentally insane, not to mention unhealthy. Come on I'm having a organic chicken tonight for dinner and using the leftovers to make enchiladas for the few meat eaters among my guests at Thanksgiving.

      Half the people coming for dinner on tomorrow  are either vegans or vegetarians . Eat your meat, beat your meat but why get nasty about people who have enough sense to realize where and how we get our meat and more importantly what the factory production of meat is doing to the planet. Enjoy but please do not give those who are trying to adapt to a small planet a hard time.

        that my post was "nasty" to those who do eat meat - I made a fairly mild comment in reference to the cartoon above and stated that I wished this site was a little more critter oriented.  If you choose to eat meat, that's your choice. It's just not mine.
