What’s the beef?
If you would like to read what I had planned on writing about today, please see Andrea’s latest entry. She took all the words right out of my mouth. All of them. Spend some quality time ogling the MacBook Air. It’s delightful…except there’s no CD drive. I don’t know if I can trade my CD drive for a computer that’s 3/4″ thick. Conundrum.
So now let’s further discuss cloning animals solely for human consumption. How do YOU feel about this? I’m trying to sort out my feelings here. I’m not against stem cell research or cloning cells/organs for medicine. I’m not even against cloning animals for whatever scientific research is out there. But… to clone cows just so we can eat them? Firstly, this is denying cows their basic animalistic right to have sex. (Joke.) Seriously, though, the FDA has made the executive decision that meat and milk from cloned animals doesn’t have to be labeled as such. So we won’t even know if we’re drinking or eating this stuff. But… it’s just normal meat and milk, right? If you’re not vegan or vegetarian, this shouldn’t be a problem, right? What’s so wrong with it?
I am eating less and less meat with each passing day. I have a feeling becoming a pescetarian is not too far off for me. And if they start cloning fish? Well, folks, I’m just fucked.
