Foie Gras – 9 August 2008

“To produce foie gras, male ducks are force-fed 6 or 7 pounds of grain three times a day with an air-driven feeder tube. This torturous process goes on for 28 days until the ducks’ livers, from which the pâté is made, bloat to 6 to 12 times their normal size. About 10 percent of the ducks don’t make it to slaughter. They die when their stomachs burst.”
– From “101 Reasons Why I’m a Vegetarian” by Pamela Rice.

"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.
