This thread makes me thirsty for a tall glass of enslaved-bovine juice.

Two things; I'm watching a live-stream of Tim Tracker, who is walking through the Star Wars land in Disneyland.

They sell "blue milk," and "green milk," both of which are plant-based juices.
Tim says the "blue milk" tastes like "potpourri," (I'm not certain what "potpourri" tastes like.)
And the "green milk" tastes like a milk shake made of Fruity Pebbles!

The second thing is, I saw a news item that KFC is working on a plant based fried chicken! But they're not ready to test.

(Somebody just asked Tim Tracker on the live feed if he'd tried the "vegan meatloaf." He said he didn't know there was such a thing!)

The Vegans are stakeholders, rather than customers. The Vegans do not buy stuff but invest in notions. The Vegan will invest in a veg burger not because he is hungry but because he wants to save animals. The Vegans, therefore, are not capitalists, they are communists. The Vegans embrace the Marxist principle, "From each according to his abilities, to each according to his need," and apply it not just to humans but also to animals. Animal rights, class warfare, you see?

Tommy, sometimes when I read your word salad, I have to ask, "Where's the beef?"

Corned beef has nothing to do with corn.

Well it uses "corns" of salt. That is about as much as it has to do with corn.

I have a serious question for ethics based vegans and vegetarians that I'm sure they hear all the time.

What is the cut-off point for an "animal" to have rights? I know it extends to the larger and smarter and more adorable species, but I don't know how far down the sentient ladder it applies.
Where do birds, fish and insects fit on the continuum? And why? Is it a matter of brain-size, intelligence or self-awareness?

It's a matter of cuteness, intelligence, or whatever arbitrary attributes they decide to be desirable enough to not kill.
Most animals they just murder. Mostly by destroying habitat for their new homes, others cuz they're ugly or of diminutive size or infestations.

Although JoeJoe espouses his all life has rights theory he admits to killing and eating insects. Seems hypocritical to me.

*Everyone* has a dietary line they won't cross--even meat eaters. All such lines are arguably arbitrary. You do what you feel is right for you. Humans have done a lot of murdering of other species for a long long time. There are lots of ways to come to terms with that fact. But most of us, meat-eaters and vegans, do indeed have to have some mechanism to come to terms with that.

I'm not a fan of JoeJoe's dogmatism on the subject, but I don't think he's hypocritical. You do what you can do. If a person gives a thousand dollars to a charity s/he believes in, it's not hypocritical because s/he didn't give two thousand. As humans we have limitations.

Well, I guess this is bait, so I guess this pescatarian will bite.

Vegetarians as a class are destroying animal habitats for their new homes? Do tell.

Holding others to ridiculous judgemental standards while making excuses for your own behavior is a hypocritical action. I don't care what air freshener you want to try to hang on it.

I would also point out that "murder" is a legal term. You may dislike the killing of animals, but it's simply not murder.

It's a legal term but also a non-legal one. See for example definition 2, for the verb:

Maurice Strong at the Rio Earth Summit was going on about the rights of all the animals, insects and trees etcetera when someone asked about the rights of humans and Strong angrily replied: "Well when we're finished you'll wish you had the rights of a tree." The Rio charter was written by the Rockefeller and it is a new religion they said. The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), a program of the United Nations, coordinates the organization's environmental activities and assists developing countries in implementing environmentally sound policies and practices. It was founded by Maurice Strong, its first director. A report from UNEP declared that a shift towards a vegan diet was needed to save the world from hunger, fuel shortages. The Vegan craze is simply a result of mass indoctrination. They are indoctrinated with a list of things. The indoctrinated have no choice and must agree with everything on the list. It is a waste of time arguing with the indoctrinated. All they do is preach to get others to join their cult. Just look at the title: "Every meat eater wants to be a vegan and I can prove it to you".

And we're nice enough to not simply reply: "Okay, dive into the shark tank and demonstrate that a shark prefers veggies to fish. But if you want to start on this pod of Orca Whales that's okay too".

The larger problem is food distribution. Also, some who rule prefer to have their masses worried about having food to risking them questioning the nature of their local governments. You can't always trust that everyone will be so busy watching a soap opera on TV or posting about some internet meme to organize.

You'd think the costs in potable water would affect our food prices. Instead we have a subsidized market for milk, isles of dairy and beef products, and fuss over cutting the crust off our sandwiches. ?? <- what's up with that.

Like Killer whales, individual populations often specialize in particular types of prey.
