Palin Going Rogue On Vegetarians

November 17th, 2009

Sarah Palin made no bones about her love of hunting during the 2008 campaign and her new book Going Rogue even devotes a bit to her lack of fondness for vegans and vegetarians.  In more than one point in the book she details her love of munching on animal carcasses.

“If any vegans came over for dinner, I could whip them up a salad, then explain my philosophy on being a carnivore,” she wrote. “If God had not intended for us to eat animals, how come He made them out of meat?”

It seems Sarah forgot the little fact that humans are also made of meat as are dogs and cats.  Sarah Palin supports cannibalism!

She continues:

“I love meat, I eat pork chops, thick bacon burgers, and the seared fatty edges of a medium-well-done steak. But I especially love moose and caribou. I always remind people from outside our state that there’s plenty of room for all Alaska’s animals — right next to the mashed potatoes.”

Here she shows she’s not original and may want to check the mail for a plagiarism suit.  Sarah Palin is just pandering to a fringe base of people with the self-centered juvenile ideals like those of hunting-nutbag Ted Nugent.  Did she forget her speechwriter for the 2008 Presidential campaign was vegan?

Leave it to Sarah Palin to alienate any group of people and to make assumptions that vegetarianism is strictly a left-of-center idea.

Why Are You Vegan?

March 6th, 2008

This is one of the best responses to “Why are you vegan?” that I have heard. This woman has done her research and obviously has been asked the question before. A bit “fringe” of a response but you can take some good information from this.

More Beefy News

February 18th, 2008

The USDA has ordered its largest ever meat recall of 143 million pounds, but most of the affected beef may have already been consumed. Where is the failure here? The government that doesn’t pay attention, the factory farms…who don’t pay attention or even care, or the meat-eating consumer who is just interested in eating the most fatty, cholesterol-laden product they can at the lowest possible price?

Pei-Wei-Uh-Oh Update

February 4th, 2008

I have just received a letter from Pei-Wei management at the Brentwood restaurant. There was a handwritten (not typed!) apology as well as a $20 certificate. The manager stated that their staff was never instructed to operate in that manner and they have been re-trained. I was, of course, invited back to have lunch/dinner on them. I am sure I will visit again, I am all about second chances.

I guess the post got someone’s attention! Read it here.
