    Why do the whacky vegans of the opening post want to starve lions?

    I agree with the exception made above for pets. In general we have more than enough problems balancing imbalances we have introduced.

    Feral cats come to mind. Cute maybe, but they slaughter birds and small critters at a rate that would make Rachel Carson write a new book.

    We've gotten pretty close a few times while walking. We give them a wide berth. Although I haven't heard them in a while and the rabbit population seems to be expanding so they may have been trapped or killed. There were some blue hairs complaining about their pets disappearing.
    In NY I noticed over several years of early walks that the chipmunk population specifically would go up, then I'd hear owls hooting for some months, and the chipmunk population would "vanish" so far as I could tell. So would the owls, then.

    I kept looking at it thinking that it didn't look right, then got too lazy to look it up!

    Generally I don't kill animals, including bugs or spiders, etc. If I find them in my house I will take them outside. Except for the stink bugs. Those suckers get killed by a flush by me. I hate them!

    She's useful, though. I sometimes delete a post because I'm concerned I've made a grammatical error that I just don't feel like trying to correct and I know she'll catch me on it. She keeps me on my toes!

    Well, eating mashed duck liver with liquefied duck fat really does take a certain amount of faith these days.

    That wasn't the Grammar Nazi. That was the French Major.

    I had a French major once... and a corporal, an ensign....
    I'm thinking that once, in 1953, a group of interesting people just happened to be in a coffee shop at the same time and a great discussion of issues, ideas, and the meaning of life occurred. Since then we have been waiting at Starbucks for Lawrence Ferlinghetti to say something heavy.

    I have witnessed this first hand.

    Cruising through Glacier Bay, marveling at the staggeringly beautiful blue water and the icebergs calving off of the beautiful blue glaciers, I was standing with probably forty other people on the stern and we saw a couple of bears nervously skitter away from the shoreline, and then we noticed the eagle swooping in from above. The eagle snatched one of the myriad seagulls out of the sky and dove probably 100 feet, right down onto a nearby passing iceberg, whereupon the eagle set about shredding the seagull, holding it down in his talons and ripping the gull piece by piece with his beak. The loser in that contest made a few brief screams of horror, clearly audible as the sound echoed off of the glaciers.

    One woman punctured the silence as she shouted out "isn't someone going to do something to save that poor bird?!"


    Leftists have unquestionably demonstrated their hatred for due process, and Democrats have undeniably obstructed justice for, and thoroughly victim-shamed and smeared, Karen Monahan.
