There is no doubt they're freaking out. Here in Minnesota, the mega dairy, turkey, and egg farms stand to lose big time. Hormel is based here, Land O'Lakes Dairy is based here, Cargill's headquarters are just down the road, and ConAgra markets most of its junk food from here. I grew up in Detroit, and talking about changes to agriculture here is like saying in the 60s that GM would be where it's at today, it's flat unthinkable for most people. My going vegetarian first then vegan is already affecting many people I know, and there's no need to defend it. The case for change becomes more compelling by the day. Write your lawmakers and find out their stand on the $140 Billion "Farm" Bill. Time to pull the plug on the tax dollars that perpetuate the madness.
Who cares what she has to say? Set an example and use data from the present about what ingesting animals and animal products does to humans, the earth, and above all, the animals themselves. People will either get it, or they won't, or they'll find out the hard way. As a budding CNS/RD, it saddens me when I hear those close to me say, "you need meat to live", yet they refuse to even cut back, let alone cease, ingestion of animals or animal products.
Gee, I wonder how much of an expert she is on the massive turkey farming industry here in my home state of Minnesota and their "product". Another "armchair quarterback"!
Expert: Ex=has been, (s)pert=A drip under pressure.
I don't like a lot of what he has to say, but if this wakes him up in any way and he starts taking better care of himself, he might moderate his tone a bit. We need a "Rush" of our own!

I think Rush had a panic attack. Chest pains are a common symptom of panic attacks. People think they are having heart attacks, they go to the emergency room, tests are negative, and oftentimes panic disorder becomes the diagnosis of exclusion after everything else is ruled out. Obviously this is a guess on my part, not grounded in anything scientific, having never evaluated Rush in a professional role. But when I see him spewing so much aggression, bitterness, jealousy, hatred, divisiveness and demagoguery, I can't help but see a man who has a tremendous amount of conflict and self-loathing, which is oftentimes the underlying trigger of panic attacks. On some level, conscious or otherwise, he knows his behavior is dishonest and irresponsible (despite whatever truth he may impart to others), but he is unwilling to stop because his ego is being so gratified with the money and attention he has gained and the idolization of his followers. The conflict of knowing what's the right thing to do and not doing it could be the precipitant of his panic attacks/chest pains. Again, this is just a guess on my part. Bottom line: i agree he's better off with a fruit basket rather than a gift assortment of beef byproducts.
Poor ignorant Sarah! Does she really think all the creatures were lining up on the planet waiting for humans to come and eat them! Obviously, if she is attacking vegans and vegetarians, then we are worth attacking! The best counter-attack is to ignore her and continue to live by example....a life of love and compassion to all, including the creatures.
If Sarah wants to really make a mark on this country, she should donate her $100,000 per talks to Haiti. That would show that she is true Christian at heart. Not that it is going to happen but this is a challenge I'd love to see. As far as her comments, it saddens me that she would say such a thing.
It's so obvious that you fancy her. A little objectivity, please.
