But Glitch's attempt to compare KFC to some south African big game hunter isn't quite the same. People who find it recreational to kill animals for sport are literally enjoying themselves while the animals they harm suffer. I think there is something wrong when you voluntarily want to take a life for no other reason than showing off or the thrill of it.


Don't be silly. I was comparing Harland Sanders to the serial dog killer Misslizard brought up.


oh I see. KFD


Not exactly. Sanders is responsible for the death of billions of chickens.


And if he were alive today the left would want try him for crimes against humanity, the fact that his "victims" were chickens be damned.


PETA perhaps, but since when were they the left? You'd be hard-pressed to make the case that they're left, let alone the left. Vegans might be more prone to some political leanings than others but that doesn't make their single issue a leftist issue or make their views representative of leftists.

Bull corn, we just want chickens to be treated humanely. Have you ever seen the inside of a broiler house?

It's a big country we have to feed and probably some of the meat is exported. They can only spend so much on each chicken to bring it to butcher weight and some of that expense is in the space they take up. It's about economics.

What is bull corn, anyway? Is it some kind of hybrid sweet corn only found in Arkansas?

Polite way of saying Bull $hit.
People want cheap meat, doesn’t mean it’s good meat.Ethical meat costs more unfortunately.I think most people with a heart would prefer to purchase it.

You keep bringing up Ernest Hemingway but it's a pointless exercise because he lived in a different era of the 20th century when Africa was still a collection of colonies and the "great white hunter" was a cultural thing where wealthy white men indulged their appetite for hunting and taxidermy.


I'll still take the part of F. Scott Fitzgerald, Hemingway's friend who Hem had bad mouthed after giving him help in his writing career. Fitzgerald was also a raging alcoholic, but never shot any animals.

But the cheap meat is what poor people can afford.

/\If they can even afford that.The cheap meat is usually the fattiest also, why poor people have more health problems, heart diseases etc….from spam, bologna and other processed foods.
Chicken breasts are for the wealthy.

Fitzgerald had class while Hemingway was a mean, racist ,misogynistic old devil.

Then I guess that's a good incentive for working toward a better financial status. That's about all I have to say about chickens.

That shows an inconsistency in being outraged over trophy hunting.

How about Theodore Roosevelt? He was a big game trophy hunter.

Comment was directed at Raptor. If I remember right ,he had a rescue pit bull that may have been fought.So I bet he would crack open a bottle of bubbly if a serial dog fighter went down.
He might not admit to it.And he may choose a good whiskey instead of bubbly.
My comment was that I would prefer a bottle of good champagne over a bucket of KFC .Wouldn’t you?

While he had shot a magnificent animal solely to boost his own ego, Roosevelt's legacy involved preservation of America's wild places, and had championed progressive legislation. The right - then, as now - had always reviled him for that.
