Got Milk? Toss It Out! May 26, 2010

3D-CowAs you may have noticed, I’m a vegetarian ~ no meat, no chicken, and seafood only on rare occasions.

I have resisted becoming a vegan because (1) many of my favorite meals include cheese (e.g., pizza, lasagna, quesadillas, macaroni and cheese), (2) butter and corn on the cob are perfect together, and (3) ice cream is a sweet treat on a hot day.

After watching the following video (which captured sadistic dairy workers abusing calves and cows with crowbars, pitchforks, and hooks), I am giving serious consideration to abandoning dairy altogether:

To see what the experts have to say about this gratuitous, sadistic behavior:

Obviously, the dairy industry is incapable of regulating itself.

Of course, the same can be said of the oil industry, the meat industry, the banking industry, the . . .

Problem is that putting politicians in charge of fixing these abuses is like putting a fox in charge of the hen house.  If we want to change the world, we need to vote with our pocketbooks and raise our voices until they are heard above the carnage and the lobbyists.

Boycott dairy.  Boycott veal.  Boycott foie gross.  Boycott beef.  Boycott Big Oil.

Change.  Change is good.  And long past overdue.
