They sure do there will always be a place in the world for Product 19 so many vitamins and minerals combined with a pleasant taste (unlike Total which I don't want to eat no offense).

On another matter, am I allowed to call for a moratorium on FB posts featuring Willy Wonka looking smug and mocking strawman versions of people's opinions?

I think it used to be that women wanted children real bad because of some kind of drive that was built in to their DNAs or something like that. But nowadays I think the main reason a lot of women want to bear children is because it will give them opportunity to post Instagram of how they got back to "hot boday" in record time.

Apparently they got a lawsuit going on of which Starbuck don't put enough coffee in basically underfill. I think they must be balancing it out by adding hell of coffee to my container basically can't even walk five steps without spellage.

Dog eating festival protests to descend on Chinatown

June 16, 2016 | 9:41pm

 
 

 

A pair of irate Manhattan millennials are waging war against a Chinese dog eating festival – and they’re taking the fight straight to Chinatown.

Elizabeth Shafiroff, 29, and Lindsey Spielfogel, 30, plan to bring protest pooches to the enclave Friday to rally opposition against the canine cuisine conference slated for next week.

The animal rights activists with the group Global Strays say they want to raise awareness with Chinese-Americans and hope they will join their cause to ban the gathering.

Opponents have gathered more than 11 million signatures worldwide to protest the annual festival in China’s southern Yulin province.

“This is a horrible event,” Shafiroff told The Post. “So we want to do what we can here locally to fight it. There are a lot of Chinese-Americans who oppose what’s happening there.”

Shafiroff said she and her colleague plan to take out ads in local Chinese language newspapers decrying the festival.

They will also bring nearly a dozen dogs to Chinatown Friday as part of their campaign and will plaster the area with purple anti-animal abuse ribbons.

In addition, the pair are organizing a boycott of all Chinese-made pet supply products sold in local shops.

“This is a massive industry,” Spielfogel said. “They are making money off of these animals while at the same time holding an event like this. We want it to stop.”

“The largest Chinese community in America is right here in New York,” Shafiroff said. “That’s why we feel its important to get the word out locally.”

Several thousand dogs are slaughtered and served in restaurants during the annual gathering.

Proponents argue that its an honored part of Chinese heritage. Feeding on fido, they argue, is really no different than eating cows and chickens.

A small minority of Chinese actually dine on dog as the animal has increasingly become viewed as more of a protected companion than culinary target.

I'm confused. Are they mad about Chinese Americans eating dogs in NY, or is that "festival" held in China.

Also, free advice - keep a close eye on those 12 protest dogs

Parking for the Dodgers costs $10 if you buy online, but $20 if you go and buy in person.

I can walk to Dodger Stadium! I'll check out a game when the temperature drops a bit. Haven't been since I was in middle school.

I'll pass. They moved the Red Barons and made them the Iron Pigs and put some Yankee whores here instead.

Seems like nowadays every kind of criticism is "shaming" of which is unacceptable people got to learn not to shame others under any circumstances. Yesterday in class I corrected a student who treated an affirming the consequent as if it were a modus ponens student was like "I feel like I'm being logic shamed this is unacceptable treating affirming the consequent as a valid logical form is just my way of expressing who I am!!!"

Can't remember having made another comment on this subject since last year.
