I just came across this article.. nothing short of hilarious if not highly offensive. Not offensive because its racist, I know racism is rampant all over so I've come to accept it. Its offensive because there is absolutely not a trace of logic/reasoning in the statement that an American diplomat couple in India made about "vegetarians being rapists" & "responsible for a wave of violence", not to mention posting pictures of an Indian cow on FB titled "stupid cow". Reason? They aren't getting enough meat over here.

 

There are several reasons why anyone can get offended by the contents of this article.. my only complaint however is that cows AREN'T stupid, nor is the way of life of vegetarians in the name of a better tomorrow. Again, I'm not posting this to highlight any racist tones or the juvenile actions arising out of senility. I am however offended that it insults everything that I and the VB family stand for. Animals are stupid just because they stand in a corner harming no one while not being able to complain if people claim them as their own only to be killed at some point? Can we have a poll on who is the real stupid?

The earth has enough resources for everyones need but not their greed.
