Arrow Article in today's LA Times

You might want to take a look at this article in today's LA Times. It's about the cruelty behind the ballpark hot dogs people are so fond of. And, as usual, the morons will turn out in droves to post stupid remarks in its comments section...

I don't get that people eat that stuff, even as an omni I didn't eat that kind of meat because I knew of the cruelty behind it.

Nothing tastes as good as compassion feels.

People will turn dumb to defend their right to something their taste buds like. I saw a video once of a young girl separated from her mother, abused, raped, baby taken away from her etc. It was extremely touching and any normal human would feel like crying or angry at the life the poor girl had. The video ends with the knowledge that the girl was in fact a cow. People need something like that to shock them enough and realize a life is a life. Speak in terms of food only and they sweat stupidity suddenly when compassion was there 1 min ago.
