    Trump is so good at eliminating government waste, he's shortened POTUS to POS. Thanks, Trump!

    I have, if an animal exhibits sentience or pain not in relevance to nociception, which is what you call "pain" in insects (wrong) then they deserve these rights.

    I know. Free range costs more. Go figure.

    Yes, we are omnivores, but we are perfectly capable of going without meat. I never said we need to give up our meat supply, we have alternatives, and we could just cut back.

    I mean that those who label themselves as free range are usually full of **** when you see what the "free range" is.

    We need a DP pig roast this summer. This thread made me think of that.

    I give up, then again what do you expect from someone who supports communism. A failed system on all fronts.

    I won't say that you're saying animals have a right to live, since we like to eat some of them, but you ARE saying they have a right to not be harmed unnecessarily. Qualifications regarding ability to understand are neither here nor there. We still advocate those unable to understand some level of right of protection.
