Prime minister´s office on Facebook is now filled with those SS Idiots.trying to kick them out from the site everyday.if you interesting about sss plz visit the site we need more people to block those guys.

Hello Shiroi Tora!!!

That’s really a fantastic post! Added to my favourite blogs list... I have been reading your blog last couple of weeks and enjoy every bit. Thanks.

Remarkable issues here. I'm very happy to peer your article. Thank you a lot and I'm looking forward to contact you. Will you please drop me a mail?

I agree with your viewpoint. Bambi is popular in Japan too but, I didn't know about the deer hunting in the U.S. Thanks.

It requires huge amount of water to raise livestocks. Cultivation of their foods, like corn, needs much water. Many people and researchers in Japan are making efforts to produce our foods in the sea now. Even giant fish, like tuna, are now farmed and their tastes are not bad. Their prices are naturally rather lower than natural tuna.

Around 20 years ago, when I was a resident, I sometimes visited the meat processing center to receive the blood of pigs. I worked on the research of the liver transplant at that time. To quickly describe, I was trained to do surgery (liver transplant) using pigs and needed their blood for transfusion. I sometimes heard the screams of pigs there. They were killed instantly without feeling pain, but they would know their destiny just before the slaughter.

Most Japanese are surprised to know that the members of SSS eat beef nonchalantly.

SSS...very funny :)

I agree with you wholeheartedly. You are, of course, correct. Emotionalism plays a big part in the activists mind...ignorance, the rest. The same type of situation played out in the US against deer hunting after Bambi became popular again (I don't know about when it was first released...but when I was young and it was re-released). Whenever emotions are evoked...reason often goes out the window.

Controlled hunting to preserve the numbers for future hunting...I understand. Slaughter in as humane a way as possible...I understand. To not consider a valid food source because of emotions...I don't understand.

We are the biggest problem on the planet...uncontrolled population increase. It will create a strain on our resources beyond what many can imagine now. Just as with any animal base...overpopulation...too few resources...fierce competition for what is left (wars)...plagues easily spread...(and in human's case) starvation due to dependence on a fraile distribution method (can be easily disrupted by any number of ways) and on limited strains of grains which are susceptible to the same infectious agents (whether from Fungi, Bacteria or Viruses) or from the same natural pests.

When meat can be laboratory made economically...and made more palatable...perhaps people may then talk of limiting our choice of food sources...but that is a long way off I fear.

Again, our greatest threat comes from ourselves...our inability to control something so basic as population control. All of our future problems will come from this. It will severely hamper our ability to adapt to a changing environment (and will result in a lessening of resources per person - all types...not just food).
