Let's just call it healthy rather than vegan. When there are no more "animals" just beings we will all be healthier and happier. Relative to many people on the planet you are just an animal and so treating you badly or worse is justified. I watch the cattle play in the feed lot pens across the street - biological machines don't play. My "pets" have PERSONALITIES.

I was in Idaho last week and the signs said "Game Crossing", as if the only reason these beings existed - their defining characteristic, was as something to hunt, kill and eat."

If you look hard you can see the adorable venison sausage and jerky in the woods - I call them mother and fawns.

Our health care crisis is driven by animal products ( and over consumption in general). Universal health care would be very affordable if we didn't constantly pollute ourselves and our environment becasue we would be healthy.

"Live simply that others may simply live." Design timelessly and turn off the lights when you're not using them!!!

In answer to those asking about vegan paint - generally large commercial paint manufacturers test either their end product or have the ingredients tested on animals. Some use casein (a milk product) in their paints (a traditional paint making method). SO when you buy paint you need to ask all of the above questions. I ask for data sheets too. I have a UK supplier whose paint is vegan - but the American owning company does test other products (not sold in the UK). I have to be careful explain this to clients if I'm using that paint. Some will regard the paint as not being vegan on the basis of the owning company - so please be aware of that too.
