anti-cowbell campaigner ´for being annoying´

Independent [UK], by Loulla-Mae Eleftheriou-Smith

A woman has been denied a second application for a Swiss passport after local residents took offence to her rejection of traditions and her “annoying” campaigning. Nancy Holten, 42, who was born in the Netherlands, moved to Switzerland when she was eight. She is fluent in Swiss German and her children have Swiss citizenship. The animal rights activist has campaigned publicly against the local traditions of putting bells around cows’ necks and piglet racing, according to The Local. In her village within the canton of Aargau, Ms Holten, a vegan, has rubbed locals up the wrong way by giving interviews

Good. If she doesn´t like the native culture, she needs to move to some place where she does like the native culture. Bothering people for being themselves and doing what their grandparents did is unacceptable.

I do not dislike Vegans. But, I have one for a friend. I try my very best to be respectful. But every time we go out for coffee or a luncheon, he always has to say to the someone working at the restaurant, "Uh, I´m a Vegan. Do you serve Vegan? Do you have a Vegan menu?"

Then, when he orders, even coffee, he asks if the utensils or the cups have been sterilized since he´s a Vegan and can´t eat anything that has been touched by meat or animal products. I want to sink into the floor. How do people become that way?

I mention to him in private, "Dude, you might want to see a psyche about that Vegan stuff. It´s getting pretty serious." (in a joking/serious way, of course)

He confides, "Yeah. You´re right. I just can´t help it. It´s not a diet, you know."

"What?", I ask incredulously.

"Oh, no. It´s really more like a religion or a personal philosophy. The more I learn about how cruel animals are treated the more determined I am to avoid any animal products."

He once was wearing a nice hat. Not overly expensive, but new. I jokingly admired it and I asked to look at it. It had a tag on the inside that said, "Made in Taiwan- 25% wool--" I told him. "Look, animal products- wool."

He grabbed the hat, put on his reading glasses, read the tag and quietly walked over to a trash receptacle and dropped it in.

"I didn´t see that when I bought it."

Suppressing a laugh, thinking, ´Some poor little sheep gave its all for that hat.´

I said, "Well, better luck next time, pal." and we continued on with our walk.

He´s really a nice person. Just a little crazy in his own way. Like all of us.

Ok, I´m puzzled. Why can´t a vegan wear wool? No sheep or goat (mohair) dies getting sheared.

#3, does he wear plastic shoes and plastic belts?

Here´´s a quote about vegetarians from GK Chesterton, but it also applies to vegans -

"Vegetarians are filled with self-righteousness. And gas.

I´d find someone else to have coffee with. He apparently thinks that being a vegan makes him special and better than everyone else, or he wouldn´t feel the need to broadcast it.


Reply 6 - Posted by: Udanja99, 1/12/2017 8:38:28 AM     (No. 11105672)

To add to my last post...

Since vegetarians and vegans are all into "natural" foods you may want to point out to your friend that there´s nothing natural about being a vegan.

If you look at the animal kingdom and mammals in particular, you can usually tell what an animal eats by where its eyes are located on its head. Carnivores´ or omnivores´ (predators) eyes are on the front of their heads to assist them in hunting. Think tigers, wolves, owls etc. Vegetarian animals´ (prey) eyes are located on the sides of their heads so that they can keep a look out for the predators while they graze. Think horses, deer, sheep, seed eating birds, etc. Horses can see almost 360 degrees.

Humans´ eyes are located on the front of our heads for a reason. And then there are those canine teeth...

It’s open war between the
media and Donald Trump
New York Post, by Michael Goodwin    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 1/12/2017 4:43:04 AM     Post Reply
An old proverb sums up how Donald Trump handled the last two days: “The dogs bark but the caravan moves on.” The dogs of the Democratic media were absolutely howling yesterday over sordid, unverified allegations involving Russia, but the president-elect and his team put on a master class in self-defense. They hit back forcefully, with press secretary Sean Spicer calling publication of the allegations “disgraceful” and Vice President-elect Mike Pence calling it a case of “fake news” that aims to “delegitimize the president-elect.” It was a strong warm-up, and Trump then took the stage to completely deny the charges, and repeated the

Obama: I´m The Father Of The Tea Party

Well, here’s a new declaration from outgoing President Obama. He’s declared himself to be the “father of the Tea Party.” In an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, the anchor (and former Clinton operative) asked the president what sentence would describe him. Stephanopoulos cited the quote by the late Congresswoman Clare Booth Luce, who said “the greater the man, the easier it is to describe him in a single sentence.” Luce uttered this in 1962 when asked by then-President Kennedy what was on her mind. The 44th president said of himself, “President Obama believed deeply in this democracy and the American

How can we miss him when he won’t go away? Last night in Chicago, Obama was lucky he didn’t throw out his shoulder from patting himself on the back so much. To paraphrase Dan Hicks in his song: We keep telling you day after day/But you won’t listen, you always stay and stay/How can we miss you when you won’t go away? By the way, is the speech over yet? How many first-person references did he have to make to himself before he won the bet? Did you hear him mention “the quiet dignity of working people?” How the hell would he know? He doesn’t

Research has found that being attractive influences many things in a person’s life — their salary, their popularity and grades in school, even the prison sentences they receive. So why not their politics? A recently published study in the Journal of Public Economics concludes that the attractiveness of a candidate does correlate with their politics. They find that politicians on the right are more good looking in Europe, the United States and Australia. The study shows correlation, not causation, but the researchers float a simple economic explanation for why this might happen. Numerous studies have shown that good-looking people are

Al D’Amato kicked off flight

Former Sen. Al D’Amato was escorted off a JetBlue flight Monday night after trying to lead passengers in a rebellion against seating changes that followed a lengthy delay, an eyewitness told The Post. JetBlue flight 1002 from Ft. Lauderdale to JFK was scheduled to depart at 1:40 pm Monday, but didn’t take off until 8 pm. “Al D’Amato was just kicked off my flight,” the eyewitness, a fellow passenger, texted to a Post reporter mid-flight. D’Amato and other passengers who were already “super cranky” about the six-and-a-half hour delay were even more upset when the flight crew asked people who paid extra for

Final bill for Hillary futility: $1.2 billion

As Matt Vespa reminds us, Hillary Clinton once offered this zinger about Donald Trump’s claims to be a business wizard: “What kind of genius loses a billion dollars in a single year?” The New York Post has the answer in their review of election-campaign financial disclosures. The final cost of Hillary’s futile bid for the presidency — including monies spent by the Democratic Party and supporting PACS — exceeded $1.2 billion. Trump, on the other hand, turned out to be a wiser manager of finances than Hillary guessed: Hillary Clinton and her supporters spent a record $1.2 billion for her losing presidential

Senator John McCain passed documents to the FBI director, James Comey, last month alleging secret contacts between the Trump campaign and Moscow and that Russian intelligence had personally compromising material on the president-elect himself. The material, which has been seen by the Guardian, is a series of reports on Trump’s relationship with Moscow. They were drawn up by a former western counter-intelligence official, now working as a private consultant. BuzzFeed on Tuesday published the documents, which it said were “unverified and potentially unverifiable”.

While we learned earlier that John McCain was responsible for handing over the 35-page "dossier" of compromising, if arguably fake, revelations about Trump´s connections to Russia over to the FBI, the identity of the actual creator, who was said to be an ex-British intelligence service, remained a mystery. No longer. Courtesy of the WSJ, we now know his name: the former MI-6 officer, now working for a private security-and-investigations firm "who produced the dossier of unverified allegations about President-elect Donald Trump’s activities and connections in Russia" is Christopher Steele, a director of London-based Orbis Business Intelligence.... and before readers google

Conservative commentator Monica Crowley, who is slated to serve in a top national security communications role in Donald Trump´s presidential administration, plagiarized thousands of words of her 2000 dissertation for her Columbia University Ph.D., a CNN KFile review has found. On Monday, Politico reported that it found more than a dozen examples of plagiarism in Crowley´s Ph.D. dissertation. CNN´s KFile has found nearly 40 lengthy instances of Crowley lifting paragraphs from numerous sources, including several scholarly texts, the Associated Press, and former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. The revelation comes on the heels of another CNN KFile investigation, which found more than

Donald Trump will be sworn in one week from tomorrow as the 44th president of the United States, and his nemesis Rosie O´Donnell has now gone into overdrive trying to find a way to stop him from taking office. On Wednesday, O´Donnell unveiled her latest plan to delay the inauguration, calling for the implementation of a military government and the suspension of all laws in the United States until Trump has been cleared of any role in the Russian hacking scandal. ´I FULLY SUPPORT IMPOSING MARTIAL LAW - DELAYING THE INAUGURATION - UNTIL TRUMP IS "CLEARED" OF ALL CHARGES,´ wrote O´Donnell, who

Sworn Donald Trump enemy John McCain admitted Wednesday that he passed the dossier of claims of a Russian blackmail plot against the president-elect. The Arizona senator issued a public statement amid mounting questions of his exact role in the affair - and how a document riddled with errors and unverifiable claims came to be published. ´Late last year, I received sensitive information that has since been made public,´ he said. ´Upon examination of the contents, and unable to make a judgment about their accuracy, I delivered the information to the Director of the FBI. ´That has been the extent of

President Obama, as he concluded his farewell address in Chicago on Tuesday, called the U.S. Constitution “just a piece of parchment." “Our Constitution is a remarkable, beautiful gift,” said Obama. “But it’s really just a piece of parchment.” “It has no power on its own,” he went on. “We the people give it power. We the people give it meaning with our participation and with the choices that we make and the alliances that we forge…” He later said that as he steps down from the presidency, he plans to play an active role in "the most important office in a democracy: citizen."
