  • Quotes of Note…

    "Anyone who clings to the historically untrue--and thoroughly immoral-- doctrine that 'violence never solves anything' I would advise to conjure up the ghosts of Napoleon Bonaparte and the Duke of Wellington and let them debate it. The Ghost of Hitler could referee, and the jury might well be the Dodo, the Great Auk, and the Passenger Pigeon. Violence, naked force, has settled more disputes in history than has any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. Breeds that forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and freedoms." -Robert Heinlein

5th annual International EATAPETA Day!

Posted by emeraldgryphon on Thursday, 15 March 2007

So, apparently it is the 5th annual “Eat a tasty animal for PETA” day, or EATAPETA. This all began when a blogger named Meryl Yourish objected to PETA conflating KFC killing chickens for food with the Holocaust. I don’t know how I missed this for the last 4 years, but this is a holiday I can really sink my teeth into. (pun fully intended!) And no, I don’t discriminate along species lines when it comes to meat. If it once cast a shadow, I’ll eat it.

So a friend at work reminds me it’s Mental Health day…..

Reminds me of the old joke about the definition of stress : That confusion created when the mind overrides the bodies’ basic desire to choke the living shit out of some idiot who desperately needs it.

heh
