I believe that Animals should have Rights too. Actually, Animals already do have rights (by the Laws of Nature, but many are not aware of that). You are an animal, God made us all. There is no need to eat animals (it is unhealthy to eat them as per the American Cancer Soc and Mayo Clinic), there is no reason for animals to suffer (and you suffer as a result of eating them). And if you believe in Karma, or What Goes Around Comes Around, or Sow and Ye Shall Reap, then you might consider becoming a Vegetarian Vegan.
VEGETARIANS don't eat Meat
VEGANS don't eat Meat, nor Dairy Products, nor use any Animal Products nor Animal Byproducts
Thus by our actions of avoiding animal products, VEGANS do Not support the unnecessary,
unfortunate, unhealthy, enslavement and torture of animals who live in misery on Factory Farms. Sorry to have to say that, but its true. I realize that You the Reader are of Good Morals, with no mal intent, who has unknowingly become involved, like a string of dominos, not realizing that your acceptance of this everyday reality, makes you a part of this terrible
You would not treat a pet cat or a pet dog like pigs or cows are treated; and you should not allow a cow or a pig to be treated that way either (and you would not allow it, if you knew how they are treated, unless you are afraid to speak up against the cruelty). If you believe in "what goes around, comes around", if you believe in a decent world for all of God's Creatures, then you need to stand up and be accountable for your actions, even if you are not directly involved, you are, down the line.
Animal Rights and Your Rights go hand in hand (on a karmic level).
Animal Happiness and Your Happiness go hand in hand (on a karmic level).

I do not talk like this at the dinner table, in restaurants, at work, or on dates, as a vegetarian, I am out numbered 100 to 1 (or greater), as a vegan, I am outnumbered even further; but then again, my I.Q. is in the top 1%
(that's 100 to 1), I study the words of famous vegetarians Einstein, Franklin, Shaw, and Edison, instead of watching TV. You probably didn't realize that they were vegetarians (I didn't either), you
probably didn't know that the Mayo Clinic and American Cancer Society advise no meat, you probably didn't realize it was possible or healthy (its actually much healthier).
Said the Damned to the Devil: But I didn't realize; what goes around comes around? animals have feelings too?
I am just trying to help make a better world, to reduce the suffering and sadness, not only animal suffering, but yours too (I don't hate you none). Just not at the dinner table, lets keep this friendly, and perhaps I can make it even friendlier, by persuading you to extend your humanity to your fellow animals, dogs, cats, sheep, pigs, cows, birds, and fish. I am not apposed to You (even if the slaughter house was the only place you could find work, or if you were born into cattle ranching). I am apposed to the evils that society has forced upon us all, and I offer you an escape route, to sanity,
happiness, better psychological and physical health.
Evolution takes hundreds of thousands of years to make a slight change. Experts know from looking at the intestines of humans (and ancient remains) that we evolved as vegetarians, and only took up the bad unhealthy habit of eating animals during the Ice Age. The Ice has melted, and we can go back to the natural way we lived before, with greater health and
OUTNUMBERED PERHAPS, BUT I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE TO SEE IT THIS WAY
"For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seed of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love." - Pythagoras, mathematician
"As long as there are slaughterhouses, there will be battlefields." - Leo Tolstoy author
"It is my view that the vegetarian manner of living by its purely physical effect on the human temperament would most beneficially influence the lot of mankind." - Albert Einstein Letter to 'Vegetarian Watch-Tower', 27 December 1930
"Nothing will benefit human health, and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth, as much as the evolution to a Vegetarian Diet" -ALBERT EINSTEIN "Bite-Size Einstein" pg 10 by Mayer & Holms QC16.E5A25 -
If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be a vegetarian.

BE KIND TO YOUR FELLOW CREATURES
Animals Suffer. Humans are animals too. Other animals don't have a "opposable thumb" (grasping ability), nor "speech" capabilities like we do. Other than that, animals are just like us. Animals are intelligent just like we are, and have feelings and emotions.

WHAT IS AN ANIMAL:
There are 5 living Kingdoms of Scientific Classifications
*Animal (you are an Animal, a "Primate")
The last 3 (Fungi, Protozoa, Micro-organisms) are hard to avoid, being in everything) but Fish & Birds are members of the Animal Kingdom (as are snails, ants, and bugs); and that's Official

SERIAL KILLERS & ANIMAL TORTURE
The Humane Society of the United States (www.hsus.org) had a detailed page on Case Studies of Serial Killers and their previous history of animal torture (photos, names, case studies). Admitedly, it was too much for me. That page (www.hsus2.org/firststrike/casestudies/index.html) has been removed, and a newer milder verification of the facts is now at
http://www.hsus.org/ace/15866 which now reads as follows.....
Is there any evidence of a connection between animal cruelty and human violence?
Absolutely. Many studies in psychology, sociology, and criminology during the last 25 years have demonstrated that violent offenders frequently have childhood and adolescent histories of serious and repeated animal cruelty. The FBI has recognized the connection since the 1970s, when its analysis of the lives of serial killers suggested that most had killed or tortured animals as children. Other research has shown consistent patterns of animal cruelty among perpetrators of more common forms of violence, including child abuse, spouse abuse, and elder abuse. In fact, the American Psychiatric Association considers animal cruelty one of the diagnostic criteria of conduct disorder.
BE KIND TO ANIMALS, DON'T EAT THEM
I am a Be Kind to Animals vegetarian vegan. It's Healthier, as per the American Cancer Society & Mayo Clinic, and endorsed by famous vegetarians Ben Franklin & Albert Einstein. DON'T BE BULLIED, DON'T BE A BULLY, BE A VEGAN
I am not against non-vegetarians, I just see a unfriendly world, an un-healthy world, and am just trying to make the world a better place
I am also a Human Rights Activist
We are all Equal, Regardless of Race, Creed, Color, National Origin, Financial or Social Status, Age, Gender, Gender
Preference, or Species
I have many good friends and close family members who are not vegetarians, we get along quite fine. I date women who are not vegetarians, I work with co-workers who are not vegetarians. I try to be encouraging without being a pest. I have to remind my non-vegetarian friends that its not polite to bring up the subject at the dinner table, especially loudly in a restaurant, I don't want to disturb those around me, I only want to make a better world, or at least encourage Good Health, Good Karma, and Kindness to God's Creatures. We are all Equal.
