Adiós 2014

2014 was a great year even if...
I got whooping cough, missed so much work
still, I am thankful to be alive and well
Enjoying the last minutes of the year
with my mom visiting and resting at home
with my 2 bestests friends ever, Herr Gato and Frau Kitty
Frau Kitty and Herr Gato waiting for 2015, and some treats, mostly the treats
having learned about compassion & love for animals.
I got a 'new' look for 2015 too...
Shorter hair for 2015 so I can be even lazier!

I don't believe in new year's resolutions, but if I'd have to
I would like to:
Speak more for the farmed animals we eat,
so people can understand their pain and stop using them & eating them
Sleep more! I don't sleep as much I need to
Be healthier
Read more books!

Adios 2014, you were a great year.
Welcome 2015!

Horse Races and Rodeos

Two protests today, horse races & bull riders,
what is this fixation with grown men
wanting to ride abused animals?
Both are millionaire industries too.
There is something very wrong with humans,
they don't questions themselves why?
They just do their abusing...
At the Del Mar Race track was so disappointing to
see all these cute women all dressed up with hats,
trying to be 'cool', how cool & hip is to
dress up to go see drugged abused horses dying on a race track?
Humans are just too close to see the cruelty of their ways.
Just question every thing you do,
every 'tradition' you will be amazed by your answers.

Protest at Del Mar Race Track
This 2014 Summer 16 Horses Died in 31 Racing Days!
Professional Bull Riders at Sports Arena, riding bulls is wrong!

Dog meat in the US

"A Los Angeles restaurant has been granted permission to consume and sell dog meat. A Filipino group successfully argued that the banning of the consumption of dog meat violated their religious rights."

This is so terribly wrong, BUT is NOT much different than eating cows, pigs, and chickens... if you walk by China Town in LA you see a lot of lacquered ducks hanging this way, maybe this atrocity will show how cruel is to eat animals, not ONLY dogs, or cats, like the Chinese do.

WARNING!! Scary graphics of dogs looking just like lacquered ducks in Chinese restaurants, of course you don't mind seeing a roasted chicken, well, it is the same kind of graphic, but it is dogs, get used to see hanging dogs in LA, I guess? So you know...

In the Philippines today, there is an abundance of dog meat sold in restaurants and markets. The meat is as sold for as little as $1.30/kg. The trading and selling of dog-meat brings in nearly 3.8 million U.S. dollars per year, and nearly 500,000 dogs are killed for meat every year.

Killing animals is finishing the planet

"Livestock species contribute directly and indirectly to deforestation, water pollution, air pollution, greenhouse gases, global warming, desertification, erosion and human obesity, and virtually anywhere you go in the world, the damage done by ruminants, pigs and poultry, and those who grow feed crops for them, is visible on the land. Dry and scrubby Greece, once a nation of woodlands, has gone to the goats. In Brazil, forests are falling before the advance of soybean fields, cultivated largely as beef fodder. In New Zealand, the banks of wild streams are frequently found trampled and muddied by grazers."

People's Climate March San Diego

It was a great to see so many San Diegans
concerned about the environment yesterday
#ClimateMarchSD #ClimateMarch

And let's not forget that we can fight global warming
and climate change with our forks 3 times a day!

Animal agriculture causes 51% of greenhouse emissions.

Half of ALL the water used in the US goes to raise animals for food.

The UN has asked many times governments to promote
a diet free of meat and diary, please do your part!
It is as easy as choosing a veggie burger over a beef or chicken one!

More mindbogglingly facts about animal agriculture & our planet 

Some of the posters me & my friends made yesterday for the March!

James Cameron is a vegan

James Cameron is probably one of my favorite vegan celebrities

"[But] I went 100 percent plant-based – vegan – two-and-a-half years ago.
I’ve got tons of energy. I’m fitter now. I’m running farther than I did
when I was in my twenties. So I’m good to go.”

James Cameron’s Vegan Diet Gives Him ‘Tons of Energy’ 

He does so much for the animals!
For the planet!
Ah, and he makes some cool movies too!

Foster Orphan Elephants and Rhinos

It's been a year since I started fostering
Elephant orphan SHUKURU and
Rhino orphan SOLIO,

Please read more on SOLIO's story
and her friend Maxwell the blind rhino
is really something else!

It is great to received news from
The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust monthly about their lives,
Please consider fostering a rhino or elephant,
they are beautiful animals on the verge of extinction.
This trust does a wonderful work!

Vegan Athletes

Serena Williams vegan wonder woman!
She is another proof that a vegan diet can be
so complete!
Serena Williams shining on a vegan-powered diet

Runner Carl Lewis is one of the most cited example
of the success of a vegan diet for high performing athletes
read this article:

Many athletes choose a vegan diet because recovery times
between trainings are faster & easier, well,
I am not an athlete but I sure feel healthier

Check out Mac Danzing amazing video!
He is not a 'skinny hippie' kind of guy eh?

Check out a list of many other vegan athletes!

Pirates and slaves

Last week I went to the exhibition of Real Pirates
this was an exhibit based on a real pirate ship that sank in Massachusetts, the Whydah...
I learn so much about pirates and I turn to admire them,
they robbed mostly Slave Ships,
then they set free the slaves and make them part of their crew,
most pirate ships had at least a 60% crew of slaves,
indian americans, latin people,
and they always split their gold in equal parts &
had elections to choose captains...
I learn also a lot about slavery...
the slave ships, now the resemblance between
human slavery and what we do now
with the animals was an uncanny painful part
before it was humans
now it is animals
overcrowded and abused
overcrowded and abused
entire families suffering abuse for others profit
intelligent beings being abuse for food

Today, a year ago, I went to my 1st protest,
I became an animal rights activist
at the bacon festival,
I am so thankful for all the
wonderful compassionate people
I have met in 1 year,
and all have learned about animals
and how terribly we treat them.
As we asked the people today at the bacon festival,
please just make an informed
decision for all your choices,
learn how animals are treated for food,
for clothing, for entertainment,
and make the right choice for them,
for you, and this planet,
always cause the least amount of suffering.

And remember what activism is about
Always do something
Do not follow the masses or what is convenient
Nor what you have been told to do
Search for the truth
Learn how things really work
And DO something to leave this planet
A better place than you found it!

Love animals?

Love Animals?
Then why EAT them?
Why WEAR them?
And make them play tricks?
If you really love animals,
re-think your relationship with them!

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

We are all beings. We are all the same.

"We are all beings. We are all the same.
Why and how did the animals get to be "chosen" as being food,
clothing and anything else used for exploitation?
We have so much to learn from them.
They are all love."

~Ellen Ericksen, Animal Activist, Vegan.

Is Veganism Extreme?

Is Veganism Extreme?

I'll tell you, and maybe if you read my blog years ago
I used to be SICK all the time
I had migraines, asthma, IBS, diverticulitis
allergies, horrible allergies! all the time
and I thought it was my poor cats
and I was always tired, always late, always unmotivated
I have been a vegan, not even a super healthy one
just a vegan, for a while now and
The migraines are GONE
The allergies are GONE
The IBS and diverticulitis attacks are GONE
I have more energy than when I was working-out but eating dead animals
and drinking yogurt
I feel so much more clear-minded, focus, and just happy & relaxed
And to confess, I thought being a vegan was hard, but it hasn't been at all!
There is so much food to eat that has NO animal products, really, there is!
You get all the protein you need from beans, tofu, nuts, grains, and veggies
Give it a try, you won't regret it!
You will feel young vibrant again, and you won't be torturing animals
nor contributing to the destruction of this planet!

Take Extinction Off Your Plate

Taken from:
"Meat production is one of the main drivers of environmental degradation globally, and the crisis is rapidly growing worse. Production of beef, poultry, pork and other meats tripled between 1980 and 2010 and will likely double again by 2020. This ever-increasing meat consumption in a world of more than 7 billion people is already taking a staggering toll on wildlife, habitat, water resources, air quality and the climate. And Americans eat more meat per capita than almost anyone else. By eating less or no meat, we can take extinction off our plates and improve our own health along with the health of the planet."

Ringling Brothers is evil!

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus ties baby elephants down to a concrete floor for up to 23 HOURS PER DAY to break their spirits.
Elephants deserve better!

This is happening in the United States!
Animal abuse is legal in the USA, as long as they make money!
Take a look at PETA's undercover investigation

You can do something about it!
Boycott the Circus, Do NOT go to ANY circus

we are eating the Planet and the animals

sometimes when I tell people that eating a vegan diet
can prevent world hunger they look at me strangely,
below is why

if we channel the Earth resources into
feeding cattle and chickens to later eat them,
we are literally wasting food
(and investing in animal cruelty too)
if you have children or care about this
overpopulated planet that is running out of water,
the choice is simple, Go Vegan or at least
 reduce your consumption of dead animals to a minimum!

Animal Testing

Air France is the only major airline in the world that still ships
monkeys to their deaths in laboratories. Here’s how it happens:

Every year, more than 10,000 monkeys are shipped to laboratories in the United States.
Stop Animal Testing, is useless! 

Most results from animal testing FAIL in human testing

starving for the human 'pseudo-science'

we cannot do this to animals!

you can do something to talk about this abuse!
