Watching the second video made me even sadder... emoticon
Seeing those idyllic surroundings for the French cows, and how they loved the concert and how happy they seemed to be - - that's the imagery American dairy-pushers always connect to their product, not the reality of an American cow's life, which was depicted well in the first video. Unfortunately, the dairy-eaters in my world literally say, "Don't tell me. I don't want to know." So they continue consuming their dairy while imagining that it came from cows livin' the good life. Makes me crazy!

Some people think the “plant-based whole foods diet” is extreme. Half a million a year will have their chests opened up and a vein taken from their leg and sewn onto their coronary artery. Some people would call that extreme.

Yeah, I was thinking about that guy at the end, too. He seems almost sub-human, but there are plenty like that out there. Boni, did you watch the second video? That will restore some heart into your day.

If that doesn't make one go vegan, what will? It is sad that beings like that one on the video don't get what they are doing.

info provided in song -- 3 minutes long. Warning: there are some graphic images -- not extreme, but something to be aware of before playing.
