I love this, verbal vomiting at its finest. Being on the north side of 50 I am quite familiar with Upton Sinclair and the slaughter house industry. Lived in Chicago as a youngin and worked in a slaughter house in my teens in Ohio, and currently slaughter my own cattle, sheep and chickens, and any game meat or fish I hunt or catch for home consumption, did one a horse once, not mine one year, was feeling very French. It didn’t taste like chicken, nor snake. It had more of an elk or moose taste and consistency Won’t talk about monkeys, and rats and little tiny deer, others can if they wish I wouldn’t eat a hotdog or bologna for years. I do now. What we forgot can’t hurt us.
The other side of Upton Sinclair would be Ayn Rand. Give it another read.
As to the use of this site for commercial purposes, I reiterate, do you honestly believe that the STERNS built this site for we the consumer for any other reason then to ultimately get us to consume. Certainly they want to entertain and inform, and to allow us to broaden our experiences and horizons, but they also want us to use and consume their products. What a perfect gimmick, I’m proud of them, they have a great method for getting their message out in a fun informative way. While I don’t know what their sales figures are since the forum was created I would hazard a guess that they have increased. However that is their business not mine, unless of course they were a publicly held company and I owned shares in the company.
So in closing beware BIG BROTHER is watching, Farenheit 451 may not be a book you want to have in your house, that is if your house is made of straw or other flammable material. And is Soylent Green something we should worry about. ENJOY
