Oh, look…another one

Remember that time that you and everybody you knew was upset about high taxes and illegal immigration and the people in charge decided that the most important issue in the whole wide world was…gay marriage? Remember that? Or that time you and everybody you knew was upset about high taxes and illegal immigration and the people in charge decided that the most important issue in the whole wide world was…transgender teens?

Yeah. Are you getting the vegan thing at the moment? You can spot a put-up job when suddenly, inexplicably, it’s all anyone is talking about in government and the MSM. Left, right and center. Or left, lefter and leftest.

We’re getting Veganuary in the neck. I tried searching “who is behind Veganuary?” “why Veganuary?” all the way to “fuck off Veganuary” and all the results were tasty vegan recipes and why you should give up meat for the animals.

I find it bizarre that the slideshow at the top of the Veganuary site is a series of adorable farm animals. Because, you know, the only reason those beasts exist is because we eat them. Most bear little resemblance to their natural counterparts.

Cows, chickens and pigs, after so many generations of breeding for characteristics people convenient, can no longer make it in the wild. Maybe if we cut them all loose all and let the predators at them for a hundred years or so, a few hardy specimens would survive to create brand new breeds of wild animal, but I don’t think that’s what the vegans have in mind.

Just how many petting zoos do they think the market will support?

We’ve been inundated with Dry January propaganda. Why? Did you look in my recycle bin over the holidays and gasp? Fuck off, I say! It’s my liver and I’ll kill it as choose! And so I took off to sunny FL where the tourist industry knows better than to nanny scold it’s bill payers. Fuck off to the nanny liver watchers and the cold northeastern winter for the next 3 weeks!

Hmm…”new breeds of wild animal,” and they’re out for revenge. Coming soon to a theater near you.

Humans ain’t natural! It’s that simple!

So all the anti-humans who don’t like all us other humans should be the first ones on the block to head to their end in a box.

(does this next part show my age?)
and it’s one two three what are we fighting for?
don’t ask me I don’t give a damn,
just as long as it ain’t Spam!
Five Six Seven, open up the restaurant doors!
Ain’t no stuff that we won’t eat
Whoopie! I just hope it’s meat!

@Durnedyankee

“Gimme an F … ”

I say nothing wrong with being a vegetarian or vegan or whatever, but save the moral preening. If you feel compelled to try to change the world, why not put your energy toward fighting human trafficking or corruption in government?

Don’t be pushing your beliefs on others, we’ve had quite enough of that already.

PETA stands for People Eating Tasty Animals.

Miss Linda says, “You don’t love animals!” To which I retort, “Yes I do. Many of them, when properly prepared, are delicious.”

(Is she a Vegan? I don’t know her home planet; she might not even be from this galaxy.) Actually she eats hamburgers and ground beef, and wears leather shoes and belts without complaint.

Java Man and I stopped for coffee yesterday afternoon, in a popular shopping district. We sat outside, across the narrow drive from a steak house, and the smell of flame-broiled beef was crazy tantalizing. I could barely concentrate of what Java Man was saying. Alas, we’d already had lunch and it was too early for supper, but now I have to have a steak. Maybe this weekend.

Peace – my sentiments exactly. I can go a fair while without eating meat and enjoy, especially, the Indian ‘vegan and veg’ recipes. I got hooked on buckwheat noodles and Asian meatless style cooking last year because there’s too much DurnedYankee for my liking, and it’s slowly paying off.

Just don’t want people minding my business is all.
And if they want to be ashamed of being an omnivore or wanting to live in nice quarters that’s their business, but I don’t feel obligated to move to a mud hut and eat grass just because they like being miserable.
People used to wear hair shirts and flog themselves because they wanted to show they recognized they were sinners, that doesn’t mean everyone else should have to.

Is that the “Fish Is Practically a Vegetable Cheer”?

Meat is murder! (Tasty, tasty murder!)

Sure, the PETA-types are all twitterpated about “animal rights.” But even THEY seem to be pretty insensitive to the feelings of transgender teenage animals. (Should those animals be first to the slaughter, or last?)

That’s a weird font on Veganuary. It’s got bold face on letters G N U R. Is “gnur” a thing? Other than in urban dictionary which is just never mind not what I mean. (Also I note – spell check had NO ISSUES with that spelling. WTH?)

I recall reading something about how the serious hard-core peta/vegan types consider domesticated animals to be essentially “traitors” and they’re perfectly OK with putting them Up Against The Wall. Hence PETA’s routine killing of almost all pets that get into their foul clutches.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
