    I've been to the famous Hong Kong live poultry market, where they will behead the chicken right in front of you. If you are squeamish and/or don't like thinking about the fact that the meat on your plate was alive once, it's *definitely* not the place for you. I grew up occasionally going to a working farm to buy fresh sausage and stuff, so I was ok with it.

    I'm just too weak to abandon meat completely. :(
    I'm really hoping that they perfect laboratory grown meat, i.e. meat that's never been part of a live animal, as soon as possible. I'd be willing to pay more for such meat.

    Yes that is true....vegans who fight for animals and polution....polutes atmosphere more than standart human in that way
    Just recycle, fight for better condition for dairy...and don't be edgy assholes people.

    Natalie Portman makes a huge true statement. Corporate farming must stop and become sustainable, we need the chickens that are boxed to to be used to eat bugs we don't want, in a range that is designed to hold bugs for chickens.
    The best place to hold beetles (which is the base family for all roaches), is to keep them in an underbrush type of setting, instead of attempting to wipe them out with pesticides; let "roaches" or beetles do their job, which is to eat rotting old fruits and vegetables while they help us with compost leaves, twigs, branches and leaves, while providing healthy food for poultry. All you need is a computer smart enough to recognize a specific bug by it's genetics (smell, sight and waste collection) and put it in a situation where it drives a part of the ecology previously, almost exclusively owned by the wetlands, but can be adapted to protected greenhouse environments; we could use mechanical "birds" that would be drones, trained in agriculture, with cages on them snapping shut harmlessly around a bug and relocating them to do a job in compost, but "crop raiders", such as locusts could be identified early, and in the case of locusts, actually prevented.
    Locusts are an evolutionary adaptation to survive famine, by bugs becoming cannibalistic, and eating literally everything in it's path; If a grasshopper is prevented from eating a corpse of it's own kind to survive, then an outbreak of a plague of pestilence can be prevented; Either food can be supplied to prevent cannibalism, or predators of that type of bug could be used by letting birds into the greenhouse where they can become food for birds instead.
    We have to learn to harvest even the smallest workers, such as beetles and roaches for our future. A cow may no longer be used solely for food, in a future where there could be meat substitutes grown in labs that are far healthier, lacking all of the acids and hormones released during a death; but besides that, cows and other herbivores do have a vitally important part to our ecology. We need them for the carnivores in our ecology; lions, panthers, and tigers, omnivores like bears and chimps and gorillas (etc), and then there are the scavengers - like lobsters and crabs; all of these creatures need to have sustainable habitats constructed for themselves right along side society.
    We all depend on their work in rendering their food into byproducts we can use and sustain ourselves medically, and evolutionarily speaking, we need all the creatures we HAVE in our ecosystems, they have a job that is vital or they wouldn't be filling that niche.

    I respect Natalie Portman a lot, but it's a shame to see her demonize an old acquaintance she was friendly with as 'a monster', just because she disagrees with his politics. Did he ever do anything wrong to her personally? (she'd probably mention it if he had). Perhaps she feels pressured to throw him under the bus just so that no one comes after her for guilt by association..

    • Dan Africk
      Dan Africk 18 days ago +1

      ​@cameron bennett But the problem is that it's far too easy to conclude that someone is a 'terrible person' just because they have a different viewpoint. It's not that the issues are in any way trivial, it's that people can have passionate beliefs about what is right that are vastly different.

      Take abortion- people on both sides have extremely strong and widely divergent views, obviously the issue is very consequential in how it affects people's lives. But although many people refuse to acknowledge this, people on both sides are generally motivated by compassion- either for the women affected, or what one side views as unborn children that are being killed.
      Now I don't want to get into an abortion debate AT ALL, the point is, neither side is 'evil'. Even if you think one side is profoundly wrong, even if you think their policies are evil and have horrible consequences, that doesn't mean the people themselves are 'terrible people'. They are motivated by what they think is right. They're may never be a consensus or compromise on abortion, or gun control, or a hundred other issues, but I think we would all be much better off if we could recognize that someone can disagree with us, or be wrong, without necessarily being a bad person.
      I don't know Jared Kushner, or know much about him. I don't deny the possibility that he might be a bad person. But I think it's plain to see that nearly anyone associated with President Trump, who doesn't go out of their way to shun him profusely, is pretty much automatically seen as guilty by association by many of Tump's detractors. I'm not a fan of guilt by association, or guilty until proven innocent, and I'm not willing to assume that anyone is a bad person just because they are associated with someone I don't like. And especially if someone has treated me with respect, and never wronged me, it would take a lot for me to give in to mob mentality and throw them under the bus.. And I could be wrong, but that seems like what is happening here.

    • cameron bennett
      cameron bennett 18 days ago +1

      But that's the thing about politics. It affects just about everyone, even in small basic ways. The food we eat is dictated by laws (and not just meat). It's easy to be a terrible person and say it's a "political view," but if someone holds a political view that interferes with your humanity, then it can (and often time should) be hard to get past. In the first few hundred years of America, whether or not black people had the same rights as white people was considered "politics."

    I am really surprised about vegetarian people. Eating plant protein lacks important nutrients required for building, repairing, and maintaining the body's structures. For example, animal protein can contain high levels of heme iron and vitamin B-12, while some plant-based foods lack these nutrients. Animal protein also helps repair and build up the muscles which can not be obtained from plant proteins. This means that if you eat only plant protein, your diet will not contain the balanced nutrients your body requires.

    Elitist. What she should really talk about is how she had an affair with her married director (Darren Aronofsky) and had his baby, then pinned it on her dance choreographer (who was also in a long term relationship) so she wouldn’t damage her reputation and maintain her chances of winning the Oscar for Black Swan. Pure trash. *shame*

Now kids are growing up on donated Spaghetti-Os and juice boxes, (and beans and potatoes) and they're even unhealthier....

    Factory Farms are the only way to feed a growing population. We desperately need to stop the growth. There are more people in California and the Western United States than the land can sustain. People are now told to stop wasting water and to conserve, but vineyards, orchards, and corn belt producers are emptying the aquifers. The borders need to be closed because we cannot sustain the population we have. Within ten years time expect wide scale famine in United States. The people seeking election and power do not care about the starving masses as evidenced by the open boarder policy/sanctuary city goals. We have not gotten corn into the ground this year due to floods and rains in the mid west. We have lost countless head of beef due to drowning, and the grain was lost due to flooding. Close the boarder before your children are starving. The only other option is what governments have always done to cull the heard. "WAR". The powers that be need to reduce the US Population and they are not afraid of WMD being used on the 99% while they hide in their retreats in NZ.

    Plants have feelings, but many bear their fruit gladly, dropping it if it is not picked for consumption. Vegetables are easily re-grown from seed without mating or family unit.

    I, too, love Ms. Portman - through her films. She did, at first, seem uncomfortable being pushed to put down Kushner. That was the "Lady." But ultimately this sequence just panders to the anti-Trump & Company forces, of which I am one - but I don't care to wallow in those feelings or applaud every time some celebrity denigrates the opposition. (That's why I gave up watching CNN & MSNBC; I don't need to be told, endlessly, how bad the opposition is.)
