I think all meat eaters should either hunt a few times or spend some time on a slaughterhouse floor. It's too bad grocery store butchers allow us to keep our hands lily white.


I think everybody who buys toilet paper needs to go log the trees, load the trees, drive the trees to the pulp plant before they are able to earn the right to wipe.

You have to peel the pulp before you load it.

You exagerate. I just think people should prove willing to kill their own meat rather than look down on hunters.

You also seem to forget that we are also supplying a bunch of the world with food and food-stuff as well. As well as clothing, lumber, ore etc etc. There are many states in the US that if counted alone would be in the top five for production of things in the world.

Sadly, we don't do much refining of raw goods anymore, which is a major problem.



My country is still an exporter of raw goods. in trouble now in fact due to the oil price tanking.



Oil, Car/ car parts and gold if I recall right.


actually everything from medical uranium to softwood lumber, Wheat to nickle ore, oh yeah and some car parts until the last of our plants are relocated to Mexico.

I've never debarked trees before loading them onto trucks to head to the mill.

It's commonly done in my area for poplar because it fetches a better price for pulp.

Honestly though hunting isn't as easy(or humane) as some people like to believe it is. I love hunting, but I've lost a couple deer that I shot, one time had to track a deer like 2 miles away from where I shot it at, and another time I shot it right in the stomach and intestines and it ruined the meat. Makes me feel kinda bad wasting their meat or making them suffer for a long time.

Kinda like what you said, I think people need to at least experience slaughtering an animal with their own hands. The way we slaughter them is that they are still alive and conscious when we do it, since I feel you need to respect the animal. I think people really need to respect nature and have some kind of skill to live off the land.

And if you are a vegetarian/eco or don't want to slaughter an animal; you should at least learn more about the plants you are eating especially those in the wild.

Or at least consider quit whining and adopt Kosher restrictions, who came up with more livable and business-like "Be nice to animals before you eat them" rules 5,000 years earlier.
(Which includes a complete ban on any hunted meat, as that would be mean.)

Could we supply an entire population the size of America with meat like that? How would it effect the price?

And banning hunting would be tyrannical.

Here is a response. I thought it would make you feel better.

(And as if that weren't bad enough, he's been reduced to trolling the whole "Affect/Effect" thread. )
