PeTA Followers are Naughty Name Callers
"Or do you think the means justify the ends? If you do, you have to make sure that someone doesn’t shove those means so far up you ass, that you’ll need an ear, nose and throat specialist to fix you!"
I must have hit a raw nerve with my post PeTA: Cruel to Children. If you go and take a look at the comments you will see a really vile comment aimed at me, plus another not so bad one about my eventual demise from a heart attack, ala Billy Mays. I was actually going to post an alligator recipe today, but it was a low cholesterol dish, so there you have it.
Anyway, I thought I would post my response here for everyone's convenience, plus there for their convenience.
Jack and anonymous, who is the coward? Do either of you have the nerve or gumption to go toe to toe with me? I'm almost 50, in pretty good shape, and if you notice I never take advantage of anyone's hospitality even when I go to other sites I don’t agree with.
But I guarantee you that I could whip both your butts, assuming you are men and not women. (If you’re women I’m kind of shocked that you would act like this, it’s not seemly; I would expect civil discourse and reasoned discussion, maybe some bossing around, but not nasty name calling.)
You guys on the other hand, lurk around anonymously and say some pretty nasty stuff. (Well Jack does anyway...)
Anonymous, the difference between you and I, is that I acknowledge the effort put into, and the moral compass that, a Vegan follows. (And that my punctuation is better than yours.) I have no beef against a Vegan. But, I am not going to be forced into vegetarianism because you think it’s better for me. And again, I don’t care if you do it and think it is great.
You on the other hand, think that you have the moral right to dictate how I live my life. Remember, there is only one real Right, and that is the right to live your life without fear of force being used against you. You and I have the right to live free of coercion. Every other right is just window dressing on that basic right. I’m not twisting your arm to be omnivorous, I don’t expect you to coerce me into being a Vegan. And I might add that I find it interesting that those of us that you most vehemently oppose, are the ones most likely to defend you with their lives. And come to think of it, you see nothing wrong with passing laws and then using the State to enforce these laws and then coercing me. Or do you?
You seem to live under the mistaken assumption that because you are Vegan, you are somehow morally superior to me. How did you reach that conclusion? Does being a Vegan confer some special appointment that I am not aware of? If that is the case, then it must also be true that since I work, pay my taxes and vote, that I must be morally superior to those that don't. Or that because I acknowledge my rightful place in the hierarchy of things I am morally superior to those that don't. Sounds kind of silly to me...
You also refuse to acknowledge that there is more to hunting than killing. You refuse to observe and experience the hard work and perseverance that goes into hunting. I don’t deny that I enjoy hunting. I don’t deny that there is satisfaction in a clean kill. But let me be clear, there is little joy in the actual death of an animal. As many hunters will attest, there is frequently a moment of regret or sadness, but that is tempered by the basic satisfaction that the hunter feels knowing that he can provide and secure sustenance. It does not matter whether it is necessary or not in this day and age of mass produced food, it matters to me, and that is all that matters, regardless of the moral high horse you think you sit on.
When PeTA purposely ( or not...) goes out of its way to hurt one of my children, understand that I am going to respond. It won’t be pretty. When I go after someone or something, my gloves come off. Wouldn’t you do the same for your children? Or do you think the means justify the ends? If you do, you have to make sure that someone doesn’t shove the means so far up you rear, that you’ll need an ear, nose and throat specialist to fix you!
And by the way, my pulse rate is below the norm, cholesterol's below average, blood work comes in great, and I can bicycle mile after mile no fuss no muss. But should I have a heart attack, I pay for my own insurance, and ask nothing of any other person.
Now if you want to have a reasonable discussion, you can be as passionate as you want, but refrain from spurious lies and comments."
Well folks, let's see what kind of character these Animal Rights type have. You want to be nasty, that's your business, just don't go crying home to mama when you get spanked!

Though he spends most of his time writing and keeping the world safe for democracy, Albert was actually a student of biology. Really. But after a stint as a lab tech performing repetitious and mind-numbing processes that a trained capuchin monkey could do better, he never returned to the field. Rather he became a bartender. As he once said, "Hell, I was feeding mice all sorts of concoctions. At the club I did the same thing; except I got paid a lot better, and the rats where bigger." He has followed the science of QDM for many years, and fancies himself an aficionado.
