Just curious...if you don't like how cattle are treated, just how do you think you got that burger? if you don't like coal fired power plants, are you going to volunteer to live without electricity? If you don't like packing houses here in the US, why do you complain about them being worse somewhere else? If you don't want oil from overseas, you don't want us drilling here, are you going to walk everywhere?

The answer to all of these questions is agriculture, what are all of you protesters going to do when you lose any of these items? Are you going to be able to survive having to pump & carry your own water, are you going to be able to survive eating the plants that you don't know how to grow, are you going to be able to survive with no money because you can't get to work without transportation, are you going to be happy having to read a real book by candle light or oil lamp, are you going to be able to use the bathroom without industrial made toilet paper? Are you going to be able to kill livestock to feed your family when there are no local grocery stores, are you going to be able to do any of the work around your place without using livestock to help, or would these chores still be considered cruelty to animals?

All of you anti this and that folks say you have all the answers but all you've really done is paint yourselves into a very tight corner. None of you are self-sufficient in any way shape or form, just who do you think you're going to have to come to in order to have these needs met? That's right - farmers & ranchers. Didn't think about it that way now did you? And just how obliging or helpful do you think we're going to be given your past treatment of us and our lifestyles. As a matter of fact, you wouldn't even be here if it hadn't been for pioneers that did all of the same things that farmers & ranchers are doing right now.

You're so set on doing away with the supply without understanding that you're doing nothing but increasing the demand. I would wager to bet that none of you would do without electricity, water, food, and yes, even toilet paper. I also seriously doubt that any of you would be willing to or be able to tolerate the personal attacks and threats from a group as ungrateful and uneducated as yours. Keep shutting us down and those of us that are left will be so outrageously expensive to deal with that you won't survive. Doesn't seem very smart to me.

All I'm saying is a little horse sense and aforethought are in order, try not to hurt yourself.

  1. If you go by what topics trend on Twitter, you may get the impression that the average person is not a few bricks short of a load...They don't have enough to make a singe brick. We really need to reach out and educate the public as to where their food comes from. After all, we can all live without football and movies, but we can't live without agriculture.
