Oil Fry

1) After the disastrous oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, news media showed disturbing images of animals suffering and dying.




2) The gentle, soft-hearted, & compassionate were in shock. Some even wept.



3) Yet how many of those same gentle and soft-hearted people cried or were shocked over what was on their plates for dinner that night?

    I circulated this article in my office i got a reply :
    This is not acceptable. This is beyond friendly debate. I have found it offensive.

      Talking about being deliberately blind!!! Can’t believe that ignorant comment. What do those people think? Do they have any brain left in their sculls? Do animals not feel pain? What right do humans have to inflict so much pain on other living creatures and all that simply for the animalistic pleasure of satisfying their taste buds!!! Rascals! Of course this is not a friendly debate. This is plain truth. When someone behaves obnoxiously, we can’t smile. We are disturbed and for sure will let them know.
