War On Meat
« on: April 08, 2019, 1558 UTC »
Curious how the "war on meat", not based on science, started? There's a good interview here with Dr. Gary Fettke.

In a nutshell:
It started with the Temperance Movement in the 19th century, specifically the Seventh Day Adventists, and Dr Kellogg (of the cereal empire) to reduce sexual desire. The Adventists have been heavily involved in nutritional research and publishing related textbooks, all with their vegetarian/vegan viewpoints. Meanwhile encouraging increased consumption of carbohydrates and sugar. They have strongly influenced the development of nutritional guidelines.

Dr Kellog was big on enemas, enemas for everyone and for anything! A true miracle cure if there ever was one.

Also, with a zillion calves dead in the Nebraska panhandle due the storms, beef is gonna go up at your friendly grocer.

Good God! Mr. Huntin', Fishin' and Harpoonin' Fansome has gone vegan!

Chuck that Carlisle woman out, the Buddhist bitty, and go get a burger. You've gone soft headed from lack of protein, Al.

Josh, all that dead livestock means hot dog prices are going to drop to 1954 levels. Pass the mustard and chili! There's a silver lining in every dead cow!

The other day a large Vegan Rally down in Melbourne, so many of them chanting, screaming, crying and ranting that they stopped the traffic and trams.  Usual placards and pictures of baby animals and decrying the consumption of meat, saying farmers are the beasts.

Usual radical left wing tree huggers who are largely unemployed and thus have the time to protest, and draining the public purse via unemployment benefits. Couldn't help but notice that the majority of the protestors were very young women, not many males.  Maybe their men folk were watching from MacDonalds whilst eating a triple beef burger? 8)

So AM talk radio sounds the same in AU as it does in USA.   ::)

I don't know if he has operations where you are, but here soros employs them, paying far more for their presence at protests than they could ever make per hour at any job they would actually qualify for. Then they're bused to the next city to suffer their odor.
