    I think that's the way things actually work hehe.

    no biggie about the posts.

    AS far as veal, again, it all comes down to where you arbitrarily draw the line. ONe would think if I have a problem with the way veal calfs are treated, I would have a problem with the way dairy cows are treated... well, I do buy milk from a local dairy that is supposed to be better than the beg milk factories...

    Let's just say I draw a distinction between eating a cow that has had a life where it can run around and eat grass, play with the herd and so on, and a calf that has spent it's entire life chained to the floor of a box so it can't move.

    OH, and on the main point, if I wasn't clear, I have no feelings what so ever about taking bugs from one plant and giving them to another, the plant is incapable of caring, so it's mute in my point, I do not think it is neccessary in this case however.

    I draw the line at anything taste delicious. I have no morals prohibiting me from eating veal, cow, pig (did I mention I love pork) Panda's etc. To me if it tates good I'll try it.

    The only meat I've had in several years is bits of quail & pheasant from a friend. I'm a pro-hunting vegetarian. And, even though I used to spend more time fishing than doing anything else, now I think catch-and-release fishing is pretty twisted. Big human torments little fish for pleasure.

    I feel that you should have respect for all living things. Whether it's a gnat, cow or even a plant. In nature there are hunters and the hunted. Some animals and plant must die so that life will go on. There is no reason to be cruel to an animal, for any reason. There are not put on this earth for our entertainment. Cows, chickens, pigs, ect, are going to die so that we can eat. I've worked in two slaughter houses. One (Lundy's) was very cruel to the animals. They had no concern for the animals pain. I saw things there that I will remember until I die. I still refuse to eat meat if I know that it was killed there. The other was more humane and I have would buy meat from them. I've talked to people about what I saw there and I always got the same response, "So, they were going to die anyway."
