Re: Theos-World Give up meat to save the planet

Just for the record I have been a vegetarian since 1981. No beef, pork, lamb, chicken or fowl, fish, or whole eggs. I eat soy products as a substitute, it is high protein, zero chloresterol, but you have to measure the salt content in it's porttions when eating it. Today soy products are textured, seasoned, colored to imitate the real animal products. So I have sliced balogne, ham, smoked turkey, salami, canadian bacon, peperoni for pizza, tuscan chicken breast w/sauce, b-b-q ribs w/sauce, hot dogs, fat franks, breakfast sausage, italian sausage, chorizo sausage, and more as meat substitutes. there are also soy cheeses sliced or in block. Soy milk substitute and soy drinks. 

I also try to recycle all that I can but I have also found major deficencies in this area such as there is no public entity that will receive all the billions of VHS Tapes, only privat commercial enterprises who will charge you a per/lb. rate to take the tapes from you. I have been instructed by my city and county and state resources to just dump them in the garbage dumpster to go to the local landfill. I threw 0ver 600 VHS taped away in the instructed manner. My personal view is they were originally made from petroleum and they could be recycled back. 

But I must add I am not a pothead alienated against society in general and will never blindly subscribe to oxymoronic rationalizations like lets return to the ancient way of living and get rid of all modern objects and technologys. Lets ban automobiles and oil. lets burn down new home developments because they occupy land formerly used by animals or farms (PETA). And a host of other rediculous nonsense that no educated rational intelligent thinking person would ever entertain. I personally don't have any desire to return to the time of Madame Blavastky when no one had toilet paper and people used corn cobs soaked in water kept next to the toilet in a bowl. (people who are nuts over tree's that are used to make toilet paper would do that to all of us lol! ) 

Try transporting 40 - 80 tons on a bicycle some time lol! Shall we go back to candles for light at darkness? Etc etc. 

When they handed out brains the rabid environmentalists wern't there is my view.

I still remember the times when smoking was very fashionable. Now, in the 
USA, most offices and public places and even rental cars are non-smoking. 
Who could have predicted this trend. Let us hope Vegetarianism becomes 
fashionable and acceptable and will reduce the killing of animals for food. 
It will take time. Even if a large segment turns vegetarian, the results 
will save suffering animals.
