One million animals per hour


I try not to be too preachy about my vegetarianism. It’s a lifestyle choice, for sure, but, more importantly for me, it’s also a moral choice. Still, it’s MY choice and I’m not judgmental of others.

That said, I was reading an interesting Daily Kos diary by Beach Babe in Florida and came across this shocking statistic:

Americans eat one million animals per hour.

Wow. Just wow.

I have a pretty simple rule. If you go to get something to get it ready for cooking and it runs away from you (or would have before it was killed), don’t eat it. Another way I’ve heard it said is “never eat anything with a face”.

Alright, off the soapbox for the day.

One million animals per hour, though. Wow.

I’m just sayin’…
