I didn’t define militant veganism but it exists, your head is firmly up your arse if you think it doesn’t.
If you like we can call them vegan activists.

The English word mist as in the weather condition translates to manure in German. I've always wondered if the liqueur "Irish Mist" was rebranded in Germany. No, you can get it here under that name, at least in mail order stores. But if I remember correctly, Rolls Royce changed the name of...Jump to post
Good riddance, not many will mourn his passing. Robert Mugabe, former President of Zimbabwe, has died in Singapore at the age of 95. He had gone to the Asian city-state for medical treatment after being deposed as leader of that nation. It was Mugabe who brought from its Colonial era and subsequent ...Jump to post
@mbmbos You must have misunderstood, I do not regard all vegans as such. Indeed most just do their thing and keep it to themselves, in which case more power to them. But the obnoxious and militant type, just as @seat64k describes above, is the type that always stands out in a negative fashion. And ...Jump to post

Yes, proper safety practices. My firearms are kept loaded but with no round in the chamber. That gun isn't going to accidentally shoot anybody.

I've spent years overseas, but thanks for your concern. Unless it was Afghanistan, Rio or Sudan I'd wager $1000 you never read about mass shooting in any place you visited across all of your travels.

But where were the good guys with guns? For a state that's flooded with guns, they seem to never be able to prevent these.

Aren't 17 year olds also considered adults with no voting rights in NZ?
