Peace on Earth & The Little Drummer Boy

A Holiday Thought...

Aren't humans amazing? They kill wildlife - birds, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice and foxes by the million in order to protect their domestic animals and their feed.

Then they kill domestic animals by the billion and eat them. This in turn kills people by the million, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative - and fatal - health conditions like heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and cancer.

So then humans spend billions of dollars torturing and killing millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases.

Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals.

Meanwhile, few people recognize the absurdity of humans, who kill so easily and violently, and once a year send out cards praying for "Peace on Earth."

If you feel so strongly about the animals you should create your own blog to use as your soapbox, they are free and a great way to meet like minded people.

AND if you feel so strongly about the animals, enough to post your anti-meat animal cruelty quote on a strangers blog, why would you post as "Anonymous"?

"A Holiday Thought" not really, I could take any cause and loosely bind it to another subject too. That doesn't make it a holiday thought. It makes you a douche who is trying to crap on my holiday spirit. You can have your beliefs, I won't judge you. But don't post your scrooge anti-Christmas anti-meat rhetoric on my blog and hide behind the anonymity of the Internet.

Plus those are not even your own thoughts!

Merry Christmas "Anonymous". I do wish for peace on earth for my fellow man.
