    What's Your Favourite Tipple?

    I have to be very careful with margaritas because they taste so nice and I tell myself that the salt will keep my electrolytes balanced. That can be dangerous. So I don't drink them very often. I absolutely love red wine. I do drink beer on occasion, but if I could only have one "tipple" for...

    Dreams, nightmares, sleep paralysis, etc.

    I definitely have had experiences where I felt that there was a "friendly" or "neutral" presence in a building or house. I think I'm going to lay off any horror movies, and ESPECIALLY the "real life" or "true crime" for a while. Last night I slept just fine.

    News America's largest milk producer files for bankruptcy

    But are they? That is my entire point. Wal Mart has this sinister way of monopolizing production of everything in their stores. That's one of the ways they drive other people out of business. So instead of this huge dairy company, there will still be smaller companies, including Wal Mart's...

    What are you listening to right now?

    Okay I wasn't alive in the early 70s, but KMart had changed so little by the early 80s in my small town I think ....that it reminds me of being like 3 or 4 years old. I remember sitting in the seat of the shopping cart and screaming for toys (I was probably two or three then), I remember eating...

    Dreams, nightmares, sleep paralysis, etc.

    I had really intense nightmares and sleep paralysis last night. Since the summer I've been going on a self-guided "haunted tour" of my region which likely affects my mind, but for a few weeks around Halloween I was also watching horror movies (most of which I love because I honestly work out...

    News America's largest milk producer files for bankruptcy

    I'm not trying to be mean about this, but it's not helpful for anyone to falsely believe we've "won" with soy milk when people are eating so much cheese and butter. In fact I don't think it's that big of a deal that people are eating butter and cheese. I have done so much research on this topic...

    Barbarians at the Gate

    I'm doing very well in my Sociology socio-cultural "environmental justice" class and love my teacher, and am doing fine in the class where we had to write a research paper and do presentations based on our experience in that locale during the camping trip. I consistently make 90-100% and get...

    News America's largest milk producer files for bankruptcy

    To back up my last post, here's a statistical chart of cheese consumption per capita in the US growing from 32 pounds in 2000 to 40 pounds in 2018. Also remember it takes more milk to make cheese than it does to drink it. It's highly likely Wal Mart's notorious evil had more to do with this...

    News America's largest milk producer files for bankruptcy

    An article in the Seattle Times says that people are eating dairy, not drinking it. While people on average consumed 24 gallons of milk in the US in the mid-90s and only 17 gallons now in 2019.... consumption of butter and cheese is UP not down, since 1996. This is why I warn people to not...

    Tofu v Seitan

    I like both. I agree seitan is more filling. I think it's definitely better as steaks or roasts, I have made my own and bought it in the store. I probably eat more tofu because it's cheap and simple. Plus my local tofu shop is so good and so fresh, I can eat cubes of their firm or extra firm...

    If you had to pick one...

    There are about 250 million dairy cows in the world. About 75 BILLION animals are killed for meat each year. Factory farmed dairy is horrifically cruel but it's actually a complete and total lie to pretend that this is exactly what happens to family cows or to cows who are worshipped in...

    Is it ethically suspect to eat even lab-grown meat?

    I know it sounds funny but animal rights feminists had this figured out a long time ago. Essentially the consumption of flesh of living beings fetishized is like human sexual objectification of women and capitalist exploitation of people of color and white working class bodies. Seen in this...

    Direct Action Everywhere (DxE)-good or bad for veganism &/or animals?

    1) Roland Vincent is quite simply saying Gary Francione is a hypocrite. He talks badly about or attempts to smear single issue campaigns unless they are about cats and dogs. He's not saying Gary profits from it, he's saying my isn't it convenient that he's a hypocrite about something largely...

    Direct Action Everywhere (DxE)-good or bad for veganism &/or animals?

    By the way, in case some of you didn't realize this, there's a huge difference between what you personally believe and what actually works in the real world. If something does not work in the real world, yet is consistently preached as the standard, the people belonging to that "standard" gets...

    Direct Action Everywhere (DxE)-good or bad for veganism &/or animals?

    Im going to respectfully disagree with you since your posts have been respectful. After an absolutely HORRIFYING grad school semester with crazy people who call out their own allies over what can only be called "accidental racialism" at best, and completely innocent at worst, I think calling...

    Potato Ideas

    Chutney is also good. I have two different kinds of Indian chutney in my fridge, and realized that the mild mango ginger is excellent on a baked potato with Earth Balance, salt and pepper. Indian cuisine does use "milky" bases a lot so if you didn't like EB or any kind of vegan butter, I think a...

    Accidentally ate Meat

    There is a rational form of veganism which states that what matters is what you intentionally purchase. Not accidentally eating meat, not accepting charity food items containing egg or dairy as a person who is poor, not "dumpster diving." I do see people online who post weird creepy stuff like...

    Direct Action Everywhere (DxE)-good or bad for veganism &/or animals?

    You're a Franci-bot, I get it. You ignore all other evidence to focus in on one statement you're likely misinterpreting. Im not going to argue with you about this, there is so much overwhelming damming information against Gary Francione that if you ignore it to attack DXE theres not going to be...
