FBI and the "Vegan Community"

"One F.B.I. document indicates that agents in Indianapolis planned to conduct surveillance as part of a "Vegan Community Project"." - the complete NY Times article here.

And this is even better..."The ACLU said that the documents released today on Greenpeace, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) show the FBI expanding the definition of “domestic terrorism” to include citizens and groups that participate in lawful protests or civil disobedience." Here's the link, thanks to Food Fight Grocery for posting it!

Day dreaming...

...that's what i was doing all day today, about a new dish i made last night as part of the Christmas recipe special for my column on Peta2 which will go up this week. So I had to make another batch of Maple-Mustard-Glazed Potatoes and String Beans, a Vegan With A Vengeance recipe. The perfect comfort food...

Winter soup

It's definitely winter.
Nothing like a hearty veggie soup to warm up. Just put all vegs you have lying around in a pot with water, cook, and blend (if desired)...
I made this one yesterday with the ingredients you see, plus Parsnips which I forgot to put for the photo, that gave the soup a sweet aftertaste... delish.

Here's the before...

and after (served with a savoury muffin from How It All Vegan cookbook that I had baked that morning)

Adventurous cat

Another kitty related post, this one much nicer.

Seems a cat from Wisconsin got herself into an unexpected journey to France after being shipped to Nancy by accident. Luckily, the staff at customs managed to trace her owners and, courtesy of an airline, flew back home on first class...

Some people are sick fucks

As a joke/scam to make money, this website is sickening to begin with, but the fact they had to put these poor cats through this for the photos makes me want to find these fucks and stuff their heads in a glass box... after severing it from their bodies. God, I'm so mad right now!

They don't seem to give a fuck about hate/reproachful/disgusted emails, but do not let it prevent you from letting these beasts know what you think, and don't hesitate to send it to any animal rights and protection services you know see if they can find who they are and prosecute them for animal cruelty!

The Power of Metal will destroy KFC

Sorry about the title, I couldn't resist writting a line with "Power of Metal" in it. It should have read more like this:
Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler has joined the PETA campaign against Kentucky Fried Chicken. PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) maintain that KFC treatment of chickens is cruel and abusive.
