Look Out! It’s A Vegetable
Michigan Governor, Jennifer Granholm maliciously attacked meat eaters recently by declaring Saturday, March 20, 2010 Michigan MeatOut Day. Inviting meat eaters to give up meat for (practical reasons mind you) one day out of the year is obviously asking too much.
Don’t take my word for it, let’s hear from the victims:
The Michigan Farm Bureau blasted the proclamation as “unconscionable and an insensitive slap in the face” to livestock farmers and meat-eating residents.[R]
It’s inconceivable to us that the governor could stoop to this level of telling people what they should and shouldn’t eat based on the philosophies of ‘food elitists,’ ” said Farm Bureau President Wayne Wood [R]
Her action is blatantly degrading to Michigan consumers and farmers, and is destructive to Michigan’s entire $71.3 billion agriculture industry,” [R]
“This is like telling people not to buy Fords or Chevys that are made here in Michigan,” said Sen. Ron Jelinek, R-Three Oaks. [R]
The Michigan United Conservation Club has even issued their own proclamation urging Michigan residents to eat meat March 20th and “all dates going forward” [R]
According to Michigan Out of Doors Magazine March 20. Eat Meat. Love it. Live it. Refuse to let anyone tell us that we’re wrong. Because we’re not. Period.” [R]
And. If that wasn’t enough proof. Have a look at the Michigan Meat Eaters Facebook Page.
Is inviting Michigan meat eaters to give up meat for one day out of the year asking too much? Apparently so – The Audacity of Nope!
