Eating cooked meat was the catalyst to push human evolution to the next level.
It allowed us efficient access to nutrients that lead brain growth and development.

Vegetarians betray humanity!

Is it true that vegans and vegetarians eyes start to move around the side of there heads
after a few years like Gold Fish. And there teeth fall out. And they grow webbed feet?

Pretty much the reason why I would want a BBQ and the meat producers to have something set up at the entrance.
It's all about choices.


Personally I take this thread as a bit of tongue in cheek, as in I doubt that the OP is encouraging violence.
However it gives me an idea for Vegi-Fest ( and even Rib Fest )
How about a Water Balloon Fight, for charity.
Red Balloons for the meat eaters, and green for the veggies


I don't understand why it has to be a "fight". Can't we all just along?

A nice steak dinner with a side of veggies and a salad as a compliment. Add in a desert as a reward for eating all your veggies and salad........now we are cookin'.

Why is it that the vegans are the only ones protesting things that they disagree with?

You don't see carnivores protesting vegans and vegetarians. Just imagine a bunch of meat eaters showing up and protesting the farmers' market.......? The fact of the matter is, they just don't care what they choose to eat.

Why can't they just leave those that choose differently from their choices alone?

Because they would be tossed on their asses in a matter of minutes. I know a few vegans and I can tell you from experience that to some it is their life and by damn they will try and convert you at every opportunity. They are right and we meat eaters are wrong. Period. Those friends I mentioned … are no longer friends. Protesters and Organizers call it "an information session" … furthest thing from reality. They are out to convert … period!!

Quiz time: Q: How do you know if someone is Vegan?
A: Don’t worry, they’ll tell you within the first 2 minutes of meeting them.

As a vegetarian that drives ice road trucks, and tour buses for there is only 1 place where they wouldn't make me something to eat.
I usually only request something simple like a BLT except substitute an egg rather than bacon.

So I have no reason to protest most places.
That one place that wouldn't make me anything has never seen myself, or any of my passengers since then.
So I may have cost them more than they expected.
My passengers all giving them a bad review probably helped.

I have an uncle like that.

Just don't intentionally try feeding me anything that had a pulse, and I won't try converting you.
I do eat dairy, honey and eggs.

My best friend and myself tease each other all the time about converting. Neither of us really means.

How can passengers give a bad review to a place that you did not stop at?

So, you have used your personal food preferences to cause financial loss to a business? That's great, the use of control over others is also known as oppression.
Would you force your passengers to a location that offered you, as the driver, free meals?

Are you so proud of using your position to force others to eat where YOU want and not necessarily what they want?
Maybe it is time for the bus companies to inspect and mandate where their buses stop for meal breaks?
I smell a "kick back" conspiracy here.

The passengers gave the establishment a bad review on their own free accord. Saying that the food and service was bad.
One bad review like that generally gets a restaurant removed from the tour companies future tours.
I did however leave the place in a very bad mood when the manager was very rude with my choices.
He was pretty open about it, in front of everyone.

The Pizza place down the road nade a good meal.

Kelowna Climate Save never once mentioned the word protest.
Maybe it was used because it makes better headlines?

Southy,
I imagine you agree with me that we all have a right to free speech.
Which is what I consider this protest as.
