Legislators take a break from destroying California to endorse “Meatless Monday.” Nanny Bloomberg heads west. Anyone living in LA, take a look at NYC to see what your city’s response to a disaster will be like. Your gubbermint will be too busy monitoring your diet to do the marginal things like helping you get food, fuel and shelter. Soon the only meat in California will be in the political class’ heads.

We are not supposed to be vegetarians. Nor are we supposed to be exclusive carnivores. Humans are designe to be omnivores, to eat a variety of foods. That little thing in the genome has enabled us to adapt to changing environments, climates (yes, they have been changing for millenia!) and food sources. It has also enabled us to grow very large and generally smart brains. If wewould just use them now and again. I eat vegetarian meals. I am not a vegetarian. But widening yor palate to develop new tstes is a good thing,. Just don’t tell me I HAVE to do it or not do it and we will get along just fine!

I am what many would consider a Bible literalist, therefore; I found it interesting that I’ve visited this particular subj. before, and while it has no bearing one way or the other on what our digestive systems were designed for, (sure I agree with you completely) I thought it interesting to bring 2 specific Bible passages to the discussion, and they’re both in Genesis.
Pre-flood Gen. 1:30:
And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.
post-flood
Gen. 9:1-4
Then God blessed Noah and his sons, saying to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the earth. 2 The fear and dread of you will fall on all the beasts of the earth, and on all the birds in the sky, on every creature that moves along the ground, and on all the fish in the sea; they are given into your hands. 3 Everything that lives and moves about will be food for you. Just as I gave you the green plants, I now give you everything.
“Just don’t tell me I HAVE to do it or not do it and we will get along just fine!” oh i so agree.
lol me being the type of person i am (rebellious and arrogant) I’ll do just the opposite of what i’m told to do, more often than not, if i think there’s a chance i can get away with it without too much pain. :D

Yes, actually vegetarians refer to the Genesis quotes to show that we were originally vegetarian and only got permission from God to eat meat after the flood. Orthodox Jews and those who keep kosher drain as much blood as possible out of any meat, then cook it to pretty much well done, as life was considered to be contained in the blood, and was therefore not to be eaten. Gives a different take on the command “this is my blood. Drink in memory of me.”

Personally I think the Biblical story of initial vegetarianism is based in the fact that early humans were gatherers, but rarely if ever ate meat, simply because they hadn’t developed tools and unting techniques. But that’s just me.

My original rhetorical with mods; if we were supposed to be vegetarians why is bacon so tasty? Why would we waste all the good meat after tanning the hide for shoes, boots, jackets and cool pants? Furry ear muffs because Bunnies are delicious, too! Grazing and eating are similar, but not the same. I went on and on but removed the 2nd and third halves to reduce the size of this post.

Have y’all seen that new philly cream cheese commercial with the black man and white woman in bed? Seems to me that’s kinda a sop to the white chicks that voted for barry, but what really pisses me off is they show their philly delight chocolate dip being dipped into by a pretzel. Now that is just SICK. That is waaaaaaaaaaaaay overboard, and a deliberate affront to the dignity of chocolate!
for this reason alone i’m boycotting philly cream cheese.

I have only one reason to be against interracial marriages, and that is because life is damned hard enough for children already without the added onus that will fall on the children’s noggins. That being said, the parents had best be prepared and ready to answer any racist bs society will shower upon the children. And it’s not a problem in America alone. It is global, it is deplorable that such still occurs in the 21st century.

while i’m at it, Chase bank credit card has a new ad out, a black man takes his 2 sons to lunch, and they’re having fun, but the soundtrack behind it is… The boys are back in town. and yet nobody is calling this racist, and rightfully so, why then, oh why, can a white man not say “boy” without being branded a klansman?

The location you noted is nearly perfect for the italian food place. It was just west of Rodrihuez park. THe park wasn’t there then. I think the owners died and the kids didn’t take it over, or there were no kids or something. But man they had great food at a reasonable price!

Try spinkling granulated sugar on the top before baking. Or leave them plain and eat with a little jam. My recipe is the same as yours except only calls for 1/4 c. of butter. Shortbread is generally not as sweet as a cookie. I’ll look around and see what else I can find. I found a recipe that takes 1 poub n of butter, 1 cup of sugar, and 5 c flour. And another that uses 2 cuops butterm 1 cup packed brown sugar and 4 1/2 c flour. Happy baking!

Speaking of His Nanniness. I saw somewhere over the weekend where a guy who had been doing it on his own for a long time (years), using his own vehicle & gas, would make the rounds twice a week of bakeries & restaurants to pick up ‘day old’ bagels to deliver to homeless shelters and food pantries.

With the new regs he had to stop. Because the city didn’t have enough inspectors to check for sodium etc content. No joke. So now the stuff goes in the trash, go figure.

And can nss or somebody who lives there explain this to me?

Mmmm, goat meat is awesome, and fresh goat milk is even better. Personally, I don’t understand America’s fascination with beef.

The buffet we went to was in a little strip mall in Fresno. We never would have found it without Yelp. I love that app.

ok, 1st, beef generally carries more fat, more fat, more flavor, the milk produced is different though, Also, I think it’s easier to herd cows than goats, though goats are more fun to mimic. And they climb trees, when they’re not chasing little children up trees simply because some mean spirited juvenile delinquents used to torment and tease them in some manner when the goat was owned by someone else who had a herd just to keep the scrub brsh down in an undeveloped plot of land that the mean kids went by on their way to the corner circle k to get cokes and what not and took the opportunity to do whatever they did to poor Wendy, whose respect I finally gained days after being chased up the tree by engaging in a headbutting contest (something one should never engage in with a cow) which i won. better than goat any day of the week. especially because goats are easier to form emotional attachments to than cows, the Walton’s propaganda notwithstanding.
but that may just be me.
2nd. I was trying to find out if you went to an American Indian buffet, or one from a people of the Indus.

Every mechanic they have knows who I amand address me by my first name as soon as they see me. Not one will give me a bit of trouble, in fact they have never even suggested that there might be something wrong with my van that I wasn’t already aware of. They like to comment on how I’m one of the few female type persons who can go in there and actually discribe what the problem is rather than just saying well some thingy is making a funny noise.

And since I have all day I think I will go ahead and ask them to change the timing belt too…I noticed it had some cracks in it (from dry rot I think)…can’t have that break as I’m driving down the road!

Part of the issue with goats is that they will eat ANYTHING, not just what you think is appropriate. Also they are very smart (sometime smarter than their owners) and are true excape artists. Sometimes your neighbors don’t WANT their award winning roses “trimmed.”

When I was with my ex-wife, we raised goats. Some for meat, some for milk. A couple were pets. Their favorite treat, even better than cardboard, was mulberry leaves.

i’ve heard tell how the mongols a-horse would put meat under the saddle, ride all day, then eat the meat. apparently it was tenderized and heated enough to be considered cooked. I’m not sure how much veracity attends this anecdote, but the tenderizing part sure seems likely.

I prefer some fire touches my beef if for no other reasons than the flavor being enhanced and and the fat being de-solidified.
