That was an inference on your part. Gun violence may be going down, but gun ownership isn't. Not to mention that the conditions of any one person's comfort shouldn't be able to be defined by somebody...

Who would have thought a vegetarian forum would double as a gun rights forum? This is like a Twilight Zone episode.

Guns exist to kill. I don't really care if people are killed by them less now...

That sounds more like ethical vegetarianism to me. I value the environment and lives of creatures that can't protect themselves above myself. But I agree we're all going to eventually hit a wall. I...

You quoted an opinion piece from the NY Daily News. I'm just going to let that simmer for a minute. That paper is trash and a mouthpiece for the right.

Scientists may use animals to test marijuana, but people who grow it to sell it don't. It's a plant. It's harmless. Though I'd sure rather be a monkey testing marijuana than man-made pharmaceuticals....

So is there a vegan religion that sends vegetarians to hell?

Also, the first few google image results for Jainism feature a swastika. I know it's an ancient symbol co-opted by the Nazis but yeesh.

? I don't think most vegans would agree there. Practicality is a relative term and often times a cop-out. As long as animal testing persists it may be difficult for some to be completely vegan, but...

Oh dear. At least you have enough sense to realize it's an unpopular opinion. I don't even think cops should have guns, so my opinion may be equally unpopular on the other side of the spectrum.

mmmm...fresco. TB's beans don't have lard, they use soybean and sunflower oil. In fact, they're basically just reconstituted pinto flakes. It's what many restaurants use. I rarely run into places...

Most? That's a dubious claim. What makes you think this?

It's already pretty "healthy" as far as pizzas go, but I did find this copycat recipe (http://www.thefitnessdish.com/?p=8066). When I made it, I added agave nectar to the onions while sautéing since...

Peanut butter should contain peanuts and nothing else. Salt, I suppose, if you're so inclined. There are plenty of brands that offer peanut butter without additives. Look for kinds labeled "Natural"...

I actually side with you on the confusion. I'd prefer a "Dairy" label. I guess it's not as strict as the FDA guidelines lead on. I know for example I've come across chocolate containing "butterfat"...

"Whey, Casein, Milk Protein, etc." are all allergens and "Milk" encompasses them all when it comes to labeling. A company wouldn't be cute with semantics and risk sickening customers.

The potassium readings are wildly inaccurate since potassium content isn't a required disclosure in the US. Otherwise it's pretty neat.
