“Whereas the capitalism and the unbridled greed that it comes with it have a 100% success rate. One (economic) minority opinion is unlikely to damage Seattle any more than Bernie Sanders has damaged the US. This isn't the 1950's, no matter what Rush leads you to believe. Get a grip.”
“"Paul told National Review he was so frustrated with the negative press that he would have failed reporters if he were their journalism teacher".
Of course, he couldn't be bothered being certified to teach, so he would have to form his own certifying body with his relatives as board members. At least then, he would be stealing a page from his own book.”

“Are you really that ignorant? Citing another single study, this time with its own narrow focus, is enough evidence for me. In this case, the study compares meat raised in the UK with meat substitutes imported from other countries. And again, your reference is an online newspaper article, even as you bring up "reputable sources".
The conclusions of the Cranfield University study are not exactly undisputed. They cut a narrow slice out of the issue and frame it in terms that are very favorable to the British beef and lamb industries. Try looking a little deeper and not basing your opinion on something that you looked up on Google five minutes ago.”

“I don't think that you "schooled" anyone. You name one piece of research, or ore accurately, an article about the findings of that one article. I will go out on a limb and guess that you neither read the primary literature, nor paid attention to its narrow focus. It is a giant leap from one study that suggests something about agriculture in NY (and only NY) to saying that the results are valid everywhere in the world, It also ignores the fact that the study deals only with LAND USE in NY, and ignores all other considerations of meat production like water use (which in many areas deprives humans of drinking water), and the relatively enormous amount of processing and fossil fuel used to get meat from pasture to table.
Keep dreaming of a day when you know what you're talking about. I'm not holding my breath,”

“There's NOT ONE REPUTABLE study that your lifestyle is better on the environment. Blogs and fanzines do not count as reputable sources of information. You really have no clue what YOU are talking about and live in a fantasy world. Bourdain is so right about people like you and

“I have no idea where (or why) you are buying fertilized eggs, but they are a rarity. As such, eating an unfertilized egg an hardly be considered "killing a bird".
I am aware of the use of rennet, and bone char, and isinglass in wine and beer, but i am also aware of numerous websites like barnivore.com that have extensive listings of which products are veg or vegan friendly.”

“Yes, they are. The term ovo-vegetarian refers to that particular diet. The term vegetarian generally refers to not eating the flesh of animals (or in some cases not consuming any animal product that requires that an animal be killed to make it).”
Sofia Gogoladze on Nov 5, 2013 at 09:57:44
“There may be a term describing egg-eating people who don't eat meat, but I don't think they should be considered vegetarians, since eating eggs also means killing an animal (or a bird). Moreover, if somebody thinks he/she is a vegetarian while eating cheese, butter, sour cream, yoghurt (maybe), etc., they are greatly mistaken, because often rennet extract is used to ferment milk, which also means killing an animal. And by the way, a great deal of sugar we consume is still being filtered through bone ash, which also means dealing with dead animals (though someone might disagree and argue that we don’t consume bone ash itself). As far as I know there are some extreme vegetarians who don't even eat thermally processed vegetables, but instead eat them raw, and consider that this is the only true vegetarianism.”

“Apparently, you didn't even read the article. Number two (coincidentally, number two is what you have where brain should be) says it all...there are other reasons. I would also add that every vegetarian that I know, and that numbers in the hundreds, is aware of your "point", and understands that it is impossible to live a life that never harms a living thing. That doesn't mean that you inflict as much damage as possible for your own enjoyment.
And unless you're a preteen, the whole LOLing at your own comments is weaker than the argument that you so eloquently stated here.”

“From other comments in other articles I get a better picture of the type of person you are. Not worth arguing with a ill-informed person.”

I assume you are a PETA fan as well and buy! their BS”
“Sure, Clem, but you can go to prison for it, too. I think we we're discussing your beloved "right" to own. Do you think that includes any weapon that you want? Do you have a right to nuclear weapons? Can you own a tank with a working gun? Please, by all means, try to buy one. I look forward to your trial and subsequent conviction.”
James Clarker on Oct 29, 2013 at 11:53:34
“You're right, it is my right, so deal with it. It's not going to change. No one is discussing the ability of one to obtain nuclear weapons. I said firearms, not WMD, but I guess you never made it to the point where you learned reading comprehension.
Yes you can buy a tank WITH a working gun if you have the right license and cash to do so. I am law abidding citizen so if I want to buy one, I'll do so legally, but please recognize that there are ways to purchase a tank, with a working main gun, LEGALLY. Please, again, try not to be so ignorant on the subject matter; you're making this too easy.”
“You can't buy "any type of firearm" you want, genius. And name calling from the inbred who was complaining about name calling? Keep trying, Buford.”

“Technically, you can buy nearly any type of firearm you want if you have enough money. Automatic weapons.. yep, you can buy them!! You can buy tanks if you want too if you have the cash/drive. Again, way to prove that you are uneducated on the subject matter.”
“Do grown men really type "lol"? I thought thatr was more of a little girl thing. Keep thinking that you are "educated", Jethro. I have so few sources of unintentional humor to amuse me.”

“Lol you truly are ignorant and immature. I'm glad I live in American and no matter how hard people like you try, i'll still be able to buy whatever type of firearm I want, whenever i want. Come and take it you uneducated ghe tto fool.”
“And women have a "right" to an abortion. Has that stopped the right wing from trying to change that? Those "rights" were created with the stroke of a pen, not the decree of a god or a law of nature. They can be taken away with another stroke of a pen. Ask a convict (in most states) how that "right" is working out for them. So thanks for the "education", but no thanks.”
“How many cancer deaths are murders? How many are murdered with alcohol? Are you aware that there are laws against using meth and against using a phone/texting while driving? Maybe we should have laws against...never mind. The gun lobby owns congress.”

“For one, it's the U.S. Constitution that "owns" congress. They take an oath to support and defend it. I think they forget that sometimes. You might want to read it someday. There is the 2nd Amendment that guarantees our right to own guns. As to your other comments about cancer and alcohol. Practice good health may help fight cancer, but no guarantees. It is already illegal to drive while intoxicated. If you drink and willingly get behind the wheel of a vehicle of some kind, they you should be tried for homicide if you are involved in an accident that results in a death. Already existing laws regarding meth and texting but it varies from state to state. I personally think that they should be as tough on texting while driving as they are about DUI/DWI. IN EVERY state.”

“Against what? Killing people? .. oh wait we already have those!”
“Exercising our constitutional right to free speech is bad, but selling guns to anyone who wants them, including those whose "right" to firearm ownership may have been revoked, is good? Does the NRA have a maximum IQ limit to join?”
