I heard this on the news this AM and almost couldn't believe my ears. This is
what we all need....more accidents caused by drunk drivers and more
osteoporosis in middle age. Anyone who says people can't get drunk enough on
beer to cause accidents probably hasn't lived long enough to see it.
I've been around dairies in my life and realize that the cows are indeed
treated very well. If milk production were to be curtailed or banned, there
would be no reason to raise dairy breeds. Then, the very cattle the PETA
were determined to give the "good life" to would cease to be. I suppose we
could allow them to roam the streets and reproduce at will, but then we might
end up becoming very hungry ourselves. I love the saying, "Never criticize
the farmer while you have a full stomach". But here, here, we're straying
from the true purpose of ridecamp.
