Lord ShplaneBut it's fun. :/
Kyupol: Stop with your conspiracy theory crap.
But however it DOES work, you still don't need to encourage Kyupol's conspiracy garbage.
kyupolNo, not really, but it doesn't look like you have either.
Have you actually tried doing research?
“Stuff is bad!”
“Really? Why is it bad?”
“Iunno! hur hur hur”
I grew up on property where we used to kill and butcher our own beef.
I have been a vegetarian for over 12 years now and feel very fit and healthy (I try to eat organic where possible).
The biggest problem with eating meat is not so much the poor quality of most meat available from the butcher shops (because of the intensive farming practices where the cattle are fed grain, are crammed in together with no excercise, and are generally stressed).
But 1, the amounts of anti-biotics in the meat, and 2, the massive amounts of adrenalin in it produced in the steer's last hours when it smells all of the fear and death in the abbatoir.
Have you ever listened to cattle waiting for the slaughter, as they scream and bawl from the smell of death that surrounds them? Then when they are killed, often hung with their throats cut while still alive?
Visit an abbatoir and experience it for yourself.
People that eat a lot of meat often have anger problems because they are constantly ingesting adrenalin and other ‘fear’ hormones produced in the blood and muscles of the terrified cattle.
Sorry for being off subject… The US economy has been artificially ‘propped up’ again and again when it is threatened. Unfortunately the world trades oil in dollars, so any US crash will invariably damage the rest of the world.
Economists have been warning of the US Crash for many years.
It was held off by the Iraq invasion (Iraq was about to trade in Euros instead of dollars so the US had to invade to prevent this… other countries were threatening to follow suit) and some interesting little tricks pulled off by the Fed (which is privately owned by the way).
Rorl, I share your sense of optimism. The media does propagate fear for a living. Even if things crash as bad as some say, the end result will be positive. Drastic change is often the most productive.
