    It isn't nice and you shouldn't do it - true-to-you.net

    Congratulations to Prince Charles for banning foie gras from all his functions.
    However, unsurprisingly, this most savage and cruel commodity continues to be the favorite "dish" of smiling mother-to-be Kate Muddleton (from whom, in fact, we expect no less.)

    Foie gras production is illegal in the UK, yet the ever-so-correct Fortnum and Mason have found suppliers in France who will keep their shelves stocked - possibly with the hope that smiling Kate will wobble in and place an order for her unborn child.
    Since Fortnum and Mason are now the only department store in London who are associated with the pitiless atrocity of foie gras, would you please write to them/contact them and exert pressure on them to stop selling such a savage beyond belief "product".

    thank you!

      Nicola MacDonald runs a great web site at:

      http://foiegras.org.uk/

      There is an e-petition there one can sign, plus valuable information concerning foie gras practices.

      Nicola (and access to e-petition) is also on Tweety: @nicolamacdona38

      And on FacethepooBook: Ban the importation of foie gras into Britain

      Charles is a man that can make a difference. He alone in the UK royalty makes sense on his concern for the environment. In fact he is the only royal who has ever uttered anything useful from his mouth. He took his first step against animal cruelty. Let's hope he cleans up his act further and then has a long life as king.

      I wish Morrissey would give a TTY update on his health condition so we could know if we should attempt to attend one of his upcoming concert dates.

      As far as Bourdain goes, you can add arrogant, pompous, smug and self-absorbed as well.

      Morrissey is such an arse; why does he feel the need to release a statement such as this? How about a statement of condolence to family of the slaughtered soldier? Or, a profoundly worded denunciation of the violence done by those two Muslim monsters?

      No--he cannot do this. He never would., yet all of the BRS rat lovers will fawn at his feet again.

      How insane that there are actually people in the world who are so desperate to consume liver that they will get it off the black market. Crazy. I don't think I can live in the same world as these people.

      What's wrong with degrading pregnancy and motherhood? Sure, it insults YOU because you chose to have a baby. Some people look down on procreators because they seem ignorant to the 7-billion+ human overpopulated and polluted world they are bringing more human lives in to live under a corrupt system. Plus, they are conformist and/or stupid. It's not an insult to unborn children at all. Those unborn child are their own people or as some may say, they are not even people yet, some may say they don't even have souls yet.

      FFS he wasn't degrading pregnancy and motherhood. He was targeting Kate. Have you searched the word Morrissey on twitter lately? People have typecast him as the miserable, sad, depressed, crazy, hopeless guy. So he takes a stab at a target himself, the fucking useless princess. Is she a good samaritan who kisses babies and waves her hands and makes people smile and goes to functions? Sure, fine, whatever. But she's stepped into making herself a target, fair game for someone whose been a fucking target over half his life. She's royalty, she and her unborn baby can take it. They have their riches and luxury to comfort them in the evening hours from the attacks during the day. Morrissey's stab was like a pillow fight in a marshmallow factory, not exactly tear inducing, NOR was it an attack on motherhood, fat people, people with leg deformities who waddle or ANYTHING, it was simply a call to be aware of goose stuffing and the person who set up the joke was Kate. Everyone needs to calm the fuck down.

      Also can I add that the second Kate decided that putting Williams dick in her vag was a good idea is the second she accepted the terms of becoming a target. I think the thing Morrissey laments about the royalty is that as people they haven't been given an opportunity to show that they are inherently good or upstanding, they are groomed to be good and upstanding. So while Morrissey weaves a tale of real love, heartbreak, hope and tragedy in his poetry, a nation puts a phony royalty on a pedastal because it's easy to buy the concept of the fairy tale instead of living the fairy tale, which his songs do. William and Kate are prepackaged fairy tale, like convenient french fries from McDonalds in China. AND in case anyone noticed his take wasn;t as vitriolic as one might suspect if they read between the lines a bit. Geese waddle. He's asking her to save herself from herself by making her the goose that she devours. It's quite deep after a brisk walk and a beer.

      look, I hate McDs as much as the next person, but in the 3 weeks I have been here in China
      it was the only place I could walk into, point at something on the menu(a #7 I think it was?)
      and get my chicken sandwich, fries and coke :straightface:
      it was a very reassuring experience, and I was thankful to be able to do it :o



      ps: the fries were really what made it, and its the only place in China with free refills on soda :thumb:

      What's really notable about this video, other than Bourdain's smug, condescending attitude, is the number of strawmen he takes up. He keeps referring to opponents of foie gras as "vegans" who want to ban it as (gasp) "the first step to banning all meat." And yet somehow I doubt the majority of legislature or regulators in the UK who banned its production are vegans nor do I imagine one has to be a vegan to find force feeding ducks because Anthony Bourdain likes the taste are either.

      The way in which he conflates ethical arguments with "BUT I LIKE THE TASTE" and not so subtle and numerous references to its elite or gourmet nature (reminding us that Bourdain eats things that aren't for us common folk and how do we stand in his way) is also annoying.

      He's always been characterised as miserable, sad and depressed. Only relatively recently through his own bizarrely misinformed statements and lack of musical output has he also been more widely considered to be crazy and hopeless.

      Because anything which attacks the British state is a good thing in his eyes. The British state has been responsible for some deeply unpleasant things down the centuries, as have most nations if you look into their histories, but putting aside all those things, we have just recently committed the ultimate sin in his eyes. We no longer take him seriously, and that is unforgivable.

      Do you honestly think that Morrissey thought those two lunatics hacking somebody to death was a good thing? Really?

      Morrissey released a statement to ask people to do something about something he feels passionately about. Should he do this or should he take his brain out and do whatever everyone else wants him to?

      This message doesn't mean I'm fawning at his feet, just that I believe freedom of speech to be a good thing.

      It does seem to me, like a number of his other comments regarding animal cruelty (eg elephants in the Philippines, seals in Canada) that this comes at the behest of Peta. I'm sure he does feel passionately about it but this message hasn't occurred in a vacuum.
