Meatless Monday Economics Info Session

La Paz Group


It is Monday, a good time to revisit the “meatless” movement, the one where you take one small step at a time to a better diet. Thanks to Bibi van der Zee and colleagues at the Guardian for arranging this guide to all the good reasons to reduce or eliminate meat from the diet:

What is the true cost of eating meat?

As concerns over the huge impact on the environment, human health and animal welfare grow, what future is there for the meat industry

What are the economics of meat?

Food and farming is one of the biggest economic sectors in the world. We are no longer in the 14th century, when as much as 76% of the population worked in agriculture – but farming still employs more than 26% of all workers globally. And that does not include the…

Do you support expanding Sunday hunting in Pennsylvania? [vote]

Committee to Abolish Sport Hunting Blog

Pennsylvania’s firearms deer season opens Monday and runs through Dec. 13. Opening day is a tradition revered by many.

P.J. Reilly

“It’s time, Pennsylvania.”

That’s the mantra of a revived, grassroots organization that’s aimed at making Sunday like any other day of the week for hunting.

“In Pennsylvania, we are surrounded by states that offer more Sunday hunting than we do,” said Harold Daub, one of the new leaders of the group Hunters United for Sunday Hunting (HUSH). “It’s time we get in the game of seven-day wildlife management.”

HUSH is seeking to end Pennsylvania’s general ban on Sunday hunting by pushing for legislation that would take governance of Sunday hunting out of the hands of state lawmakers, and give it to the Pennsylvania Game Commission – the agency charged with managing hunting and the state’s wildlife.

Do you support expanding Sunday hunting in PA?

Plant-Based ‘Meat’ and ‘Fish’ May Be the Future. But How Do They Taste?

Exposing the Big Game

Starting today, White Castle will serve the vegan Impossible Burger in 140 locations. Cookbook author Alison Roman tried it out, along with ‘shrimp’ made from fungi, ‘salmon’ made from algae and more

When I was in high school, I made the bold and noble choice to become a vegetarian for the rest of my life (or as it happened, about three years). I loved vegetables, so a meatless diet wasn’t that daunting, with one unfortunate exception: the tacos at Jack in the Box.

Around this time, I caught wind of a rumor that the meat in those tacos was being cut—and possibly even replaced by vegetable protein. Imagine my teenage delight upon learning that my guilty pleasures were basically vegetarian.

Spoiler alert: They were not.

But that rumor was partially true: For years, Jack in the Box has added vegetable protein to its famous tacos…

Vegan Ambrosia Salad

Tuesday's Horse

Hey it’s Patsy, your friendly veganizer and horse lover.

We love ambrosia salad and wondered if you could veganize it. You can pretty much veganize anything but some things are easier than others.

What Vivian personally loves about this recipe is that it has Dandies marshmallows in it. Dandies marshmallows are vegan and you can get them at Amazon in all sizes.

With a quick search I found a veganized recipe for ambrosia salad already done for us by Veg Girl RD. With Dandies no less.

That was easy!

Vegan Ambrosia Salad

• 1 cup mandarin orange segments (from 3 to 4 fresh mandarin, satsuma or clementine oranges, peeled and segmented; or one 15-oz. can of mandarin oranges, drained)

This guy needs to be skinned and exported to China
Phil Brown of Gap, PA is a horrible monster exporting all the murdered foxes and sent them to China and Europe. He was paid $25 for each murdered fox.

And if Paul Browns hatred of animals wasn’t clear by all the foxes he murdered, his other business is killing other wildlife which he refers to as pests.

Ducks are NOT Easter Toys! Do Not Buy, Sell,  or Release These Birds into “the Wild”!  

Exposing the Big Game

from: United Poultry Concerns <>
23 March 2018

Dear Friends,

Each year, parents and others buy ducklings, baby chicks and rabbits on
for Easter. Most of these animals are discarded once the charm of “oh, how
wears off. Most people have no idea how to care for them, and few if any
spend money on veterinary care. Millions of Easter ducklings, chicks and
are dumped in the woods or near water, where they cannot survive. Many are
already sick, lame, malnourished and dehydrated.

Please read and share the following information. Please print out and
“*Are All Your Ducks In a Row?*” to libraries and elsewhere, including
centers and retailers like Tractor Supply, where baby animals are sold at
Easter. Those not sold are trashed. There is nothing cute, cuddly or kind
the business of “Easter” ducklings, chicks and rabbits.

*Thank you…

This article includes graphic images some readers may find disturbing.

FBI AGENTS ARE devoting substantial resources to a multistate hunt for two baby piglets that the bureau believes are named Lucy and Ethel. The two piglets were removed over the summer from the Circle Four Farm in Utah by animal rights activists who had entered the Smithfield Foods-owned factory farm to film the brutal, torturous conditions in which the pigs are bred in order to be slaughtered.

While filming the conditions at the Smithfield facility, activists saw the two ailing baby piglets laying on the ground, visibly ill and near death, surrounded by the rotting corpses of dead piglets. “One was swollen and barely able to…

The president and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States, Wayne Pacelle, has resigned effective immediately, the nonprofit group announced Friday.

Pacelle had been at the center of a controversy over allegations that he had sexually harassed three female subordinates at the Humane Society, one of the country’s largest animal charities.

The move came a day after the group’s board of directors had voted to keep Pacelle despite the allegations dating to 2005.

In a statement, Humane Society Board Chair Rick Bernthal said:

“The last few days have been very hard for our entire family of staff and supporters. We are profoundly grateful for Wayne’s unparalleled level of accomplishments and service to the…
