Should be useful, I understand that maybe you get some sort of credit from Wordpress for typing nothingness and adding comments but I would much rather fill this site with constructive criticism, logical thought, knowledgeable stuff, how people really feel about topics that matter.

As MLK Jr. once said ” It is not the screams of our enemies which we fear but the silence of our friends.”

As if the bible’s harsh words were not enough, we followed them. What happened to the separation of church and state and why are we still killing animals for food? Decades of oppression, first the blacks then the women and now, animals. When will history stop repeating itself and why are these creatures that aren’t human only good for the earth if they’re useful to us.

These animals have their own reasons for being alive, reasons that we wish we had. They live peaceful lives among their family and friends yet we live complicated, dramatic, melancholy lives that only end in our own demise. Lives that are ending in our own demise

Newspapers nation wide reported that as of September 23rd 2008 we’ve used up all the resources the world has to offer us this year. We’re greedy slobs that would hate to inconvenience ourselves for the bettering of the world.

I applaud those of you that do care about our lovely and generous mother nature, I applaud all of those activists that get stuff done right, I applaud those of you that are not complete hypocrites in your beliefs and now is the time for us to work together to help protect our dear mother.

We need to consume less resources. We need to stop making excuses and start doing something.

How does this have to do with animals? How does this have to do with their timeless killings?

A former secretary of Agriculture once said ” If America consumed half the meat that it does, we’d be able to feed third world countries four times over.”

He’s right. When our country harvests plants such as beans or corn those plants have for every 50 acres an average of 500 pounds of protein that could be given directly to us, the consumers. However, when we consume meat all of this protein must be fed to the millions of animals that we eat, the ratio of protein that goes into the animal versus what it’s transferred to is 5 to 1. A pig that consumes 50 pounds of protein can only convert that to 5 pounds of animal protein; both almost equal in nutritional value.

Now I say almost equal because the truth is that meat gives us what’s known as all of the essential nutrients in one sitting while in order to get all of these in a vegetarian diet you would have to vary your vegetables ( which vegetarian recipes do for you). Now the cons of a meat diet aside from the obvious are that within all of these essential nutrients are vitamins most of which are fat soluble only. What this means is that you can reach toxic levels of such vitamins faster than if you were a vegetarian. However, the cons of the vegetarian diet are that you actually have to look up a recipe and learn how to cook something simple and new.

I’ll offer some sample recipes in my compassionate food section. Any particular recipes you want I’ll try to find for you and I’ll put them up there.

Continuing what I said before, I’m sick of not reaching people by stating the obvious. The obvious is that animals are dying in horrible ways every minute, children are starving because of it, workers are suffering because of it.

In 2005 I read a book that changed the way I looked at things forever, it changed how I solely looked on slaughter from the animal’s perspective to the perspective of the workers, some of them immigrants that couldn’t possibly get papers. ( In addition the meat industry also uses the most child laborers of any industry in the United States). This book is called Slaughterhouse by undercover reporter

Gloria E. Eisnitz

If you care about what you put in your body and how it effects you; read this book. Read Mad Cowboy ( a story about a cowboy that raised cattle for generations, filling them with growth hormones and then ended up with paralysis and realized it was because of the beef he was creating). Read Skinny Bitch, read something and learn about it.

Anyhow here’s an excerpt from Slaughterhouse.

” My husband came home ( from the slaughterhouse where he worked) and beat me severely for six hours straight and then he left…”

This book records what slaughterhouse workers were saying about their jobs, everything from chasing pigs into boiling water for entertainment to trying to protect themselves when their lovely bosses issued a double sided blade connected to a glove so that throat slitting would be easier.

One worker said he quit after an animal kicked him and he found the blade at his own throat rather than that of the pig’s.
