So you state something without a source, but want one when another primate states the contrary?

Another reason to buy back stocks may be to lower the risk of corporate raiders buying enough stocks to take over, gut and fillet the company during times when stock prices fall.

Look, a straw man! I did not say totally impossible. But is is actually not easy to continuously grow fruits, vegetables or grain (grass with seeds we can eat) on the steppe, the savannah, in alpine areas, or other grasslands, or indeed any other soil. You will always need an influx of fertiliser or at least let the fields rest. Having cattle, letting them graze on places that were less easy to farm, where they turned what they ate in fertiliser and even provided meat and milk made a lot of sense. The only areas where this was not so necessary were those that were regularily flooded, which left fertilser from the river.

The original reason to keep cattle is actually to turn what we cannot eat and digest (grass, herbs, leaves) into food that we can eat - their meat and milk.

Eat beef, not chicken

Comment: 111 days ago

As far as I know, the reason why vegans shun honey is because they find it unethical to exploit bees by the bee keeper. Producers of fruits and vegetables use bees from bee keepers to have the maximum ammount of flowers polinated. That is the same cup of tea.
The reason not to eat aniamls is because they are usually sentient beings that feel fear and pain. This is connected to a brain. No brain, no fear, no pain.

I agree - this is a good and pragmatic way.
One thing, however, I never understood about vegans is that the rigor of their commandments do not make always much sense. The refusal of honey, for example. What about honey from small bee keepers? And why eat fruits and vegatables that were pollinated by bees from bee keepers? Why not eat clams, oysters and mussles or other animals with very rudimentary nervous systems and no brains?

I agree. Is there any indication that modern city dwellers in New York and elsewhere really do not get the nutrients they need although they eat their fruits and vegetables?
And the conversion of light into electricity and back into light indeed leaves with much less light. Plus the additional energy demand (heating, water pumps, ...) So you need additional solar panels on places where you don't grow plants, or other means of producing electricity. It would be interesting to calculate how this energy need compares to the energy needed in conventional farming and the long distance transport.

Elizabeth Warren reads nonsense from GOP tax bill

Comment: 171 days ago

Say something to the point: Is is okay to give the senators, regardless of which party they belong to, only an hour to proofread the final version of a bill with close to 500 pages?

Comment: 171 days ago

Regardless of your issue with Warren: Even if it is true that earlier versions of the bill were distributed - you don't vote for drafts, you vote for the final version. And therefore you must have sufficient time to check what you vote for, what may have been changed etc. An hour to check if all is how it was in the draft or if something has changed in close to 500 pages is simply not enough.

Would you find that sort of behaviour legitimate if it would have been the Democrats who act like that?

Why the rush, anyway. Why not give everybody the weekend to carefully go through the final version, and then vote?
