  • Ethical implications of Meat consumption

    I almost always stay out of political discussions/arguments because I hate the way they always turn out, getting blown up by one or both sides.  I've seen and had conversations in the forums with most if not all of the people in this discussion and what this conversation has turned into is so much worse than who we all are.  I recommend an admin close the discussion or make it a point to get it back on track.

    With that being said today's world is growing in population and the conditions of animals raised for meat is declining further and further the more we eat.  I'll be the first person to admit I don't help the situation because I eat a pretty good amount of all meats.  I have for a few years now gone in on part of a cow and know that the conditions of those cows are favorable.  I get most my eggs from my sister who has chickens and I know they live in good conditions.  I try to get as much info as possible but when you throw a party for a bunch of people and have tacos you have no idea where that ground beef you bought from the local grocery store came from.

    I don't know what the solution to this is but populations are only going to continue to grow and I hope that somebody ends up having a ethical solution to this but until that times comes we will just have to do the best we can.

    Michael, who is the fucking salt of the earth, got the thread back on track. The thread gets back on track when we stop talking about it. Michael needs to stand next to some politician, help him out with his aura of honesty and hard work. Michael 2020.

    Day one of Keto is complete. Logged every calorie and every macro into a spreadsheet. If nothing else, it is a real eye opener as to what exactly goes into my body when I eat. I consumed a surprisingly large amount of vegetables. Felt pretty full all day.

    Good for you! Chicken broth is your friend this week. You'll be shedding sodium so get plenty.

    Disney's CEO Agrees That Maybe One Star Wars Movie a Year Is a Bit Too Much

    "I made the timing decision, and as I look back, I think the mistake that I made—I take the blame—was a little too much, too fast. [....] But I think we’re gonna be a little bit more careful about volume and timing. And the buck stops here on that."

    ....... yeah that's the problem. It's totally not that they're mediocre movies. It's when we get too many movies, we like them less.
