The so-called 'humane' diet (vegan)

I've seen a lot of articles, posts, and responses all over the internet regarding veganism and how 'humane' it is. Because veganism does not kill, harm, or exploit animals (so they say), it is the 'humane' way of life.

Really? Then why aren't more farmers vegan?

Simply put, because most farmers understand Nature far better than most vegans do. Every time a field is plowed, the farmer is destroying wild rabbit nests and babies, wild bird nests and eggs or babies, wild mouse nests and babies, killing worms and other invertebrates, bugs, insects, and the list goes on...

Those animals killed are food for other animals, like fox , fishers, coyotes, etc. Every acre plowed for your food is depriving another species of its food. Food that is often consumed while it is still alive.

Ever think of that as you munched on your watercress, brown rice and tofu? Where exactly do you think that stuff comes from, anyway?

Fact is, there is no such thing as a 'humane' diet. Every animal on the planet deprives another animal of its life or its food. That is the natural order of things. If you want to follow a truly humane diet, starve yourself to death. It may cause your family and friends untold agony, but hey, some titmouse out there somewhere will thank you for it. Oh, wait - no they won't. Because they don't know or care.

My response to Amy

Definitely vote for Julie and Lauren if this kind of backstabbing is what you want in your club officers. I will not discuss what went on in the BOD, because it is supposed to be a private list, and while I feel sometimes there are reasons for sharing its discussions, my fellow officers disagree, and I will honor their feelings.

As for the UARC being a carbon-copy of the NARBC, I have no idea what Amy is talking about.

That's it, folks. I do think the first comment on Amy's post says everything that needs to be said. It's been an honor to serve you, and I hope you keep Lisa Rodenfels, Tina Vance, and Charlotte Schweikart in office, They have served the club and honorably, and would like to continue to do so. I'd also like you to vote for Jenna Leonard as President, as she will continue to keep our club running smoothly.

Since I can't post to Facebook...

Yes, Facebook has disabled my account for no apparent reason, and is mum about why they did it, they don't even acknowledge my existence, and I've been rather creative in contacting them. So, now begins a re-post here of the latest shares I made on my wall, to see if I can figure out just what it was that got me the ax. So, if this blog suddenly disappears, you know why. ;)

 Oh and, please feel free to share my blog posts on Facebook. ;)

 Anyway, one of the last posts I shared was regarding Monsanto and the things they are doing to eliminate the competition, apparently with the full blessing and cooperation of the US .gov. It's a long video, but well worth watching and sharing:

 Enjoy!

Tara:

Since I can't post this on the MeatRabbit Yahoo group, I'm posting it here: You know, Tara, I think we all 'get' that you have a problem with Mary and SRPS, which previously you claimed not to know much about. What I don't get is where you came up with this bunch of incomprehensible stuff that Mary supposedly said. You see, being the secretary of SRPS, I do know quite a bit about it, and about what Mary says, and these are deliberate misrepresentations of topics she has written about. This type of confrontational stuff is why you are no longer welcome on the SRPS list. Besides being inflammatory, it is not factual.
