& @ c.daviesAs a veteran, I can tell you that your words, although appreciated, are useless. Veterans need more than lip service. We need to actually be used to defend this country, not to be used to protect corporate overseas assets and/or establish global hegemony.
PETA does not euthanize healthy animals. They do euthanize animals that will not survive, even with treatment. Animals are used in the pharmaceutical industry as a matter of convenience. Computer modeling is more accurate, but more difficult and sometimes more expensive. How do you know about the incidence of diabetes among PETA staff and members? Most diabetics are fat, most vegetarians are not.
Very ironic, writing about rejection of logic. Your reasoning is about as sound as that of PETA activists who think throwing red paint on fur coats will advance their cause. Domestic animals are not species, there are wild variations of every one of them. No one, not even PETA members, realistically expects everyone to become vegetarians as if a switch were flipped.
Your first paragraph is ridiculous. Do you have a credible reference for your cougar story? Probably not.

“… don’t shop till Friday.”How about joining the Reverend Billy and me and making it Buy Nothing Day. Mindless consumption, especially in the US, Canada and Europe is destroying the world for my children. I do give thanks for my 14 mo old (Aaron Jerome aka Aaron Jerry named after Jerome Garcia aka Jerry Garcia), my 5 yr old (Christopher Adam) and good health. I don’t thank an imaginary father figure in the sky. I thank my Mom and wish she could still hear me. Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Just making it this long and still being relatively unscathed is something to be proud of, even though I’m just a baby of 58.
The generally accepted baby boomer birth years, according to Wikipedia, were 1946-1964.Why do some people always have something negative to say? Why do some of them always seem to be RWNJs?What’s wrong with the name, ‘Baby Boomer’? I was born right in the middle of that time span and my 14 month old booms just like I do. Like father, like son. That’s my boy!Remember that the hippies, the antithesis of many Boomer values, are Baby Boomers. We are everywhere. @Thomas Thieme: I can over-generalize too. Cut the electrical umbilical cord, put down the smart phone, pull your head out of your colon and wake up to reality.I was 8, and JFK was one of my heroes. Most authority figures are heroes to 8 year olds. My mother spoke very highly of him; it was the only time I ever saw my mother cry. I also remember air raid drills and I now understand the connection between them and JFK. He was just another leading figure of the Money Party but he angered the wrong people.My Mom died at the beginning of 2012 and I miss her very much. I try to honor her memory by trying to teach my boys (I have a 5 year old too) the same values she instilled in me. Be human! Thanks, Mom.
“I find it unsettling that most USA citizens lack the ability to think for themselves. That is they seem to lack critical thinking skills.” When I took Educational Psychology I read a statistic about critical thinking, the final stage (after concrete thinking) in cognitive development. It stated that about 60% of adults never advance past concrete thinking. My first reaction was that number seemed kind of low. That phenomenon is displayed here constantly.
