Hey Sir Paul McCartney, remember Live and Let Die?   Don’t choke on a cow.

When You Were Young And Your Heart Was An Open Book
You Used To Say Live And Let Live
(You Know You Did, You Know You Did, You Know You Did)
But In This Ever Changing World In Which We Live In
Makes You Give In And Cry
Say Live And Let Die
Live And Let Die
Live And Let Die
Live And Let Die

What Does It Matter To Ya
When You Got A Job To Do
You Gotta Do It Well
You Gotta Give The Other Fellow Hell

When You Were Young And Your Heart Was An Open Book
You Used To Say Live And Let Live
(You Know You Did, You Know You Did, You Know You Did)
But In This Ever Changing World In Which We Live In
Makes You Give In And Cry
Say Live And Let Die
Live And Let Die
Live And Let Die

Yeah, well me and Guns ‘n Roses, in this ever changing world we live in, got to give you Paul McCartney- “the other fellow hell.”   Former Beatle, Sir Paul McCartney made remarks to the European Parliament to raise the issue of meat production and consumption in advance of next weeks U.N. Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, rambling about Meatless Mondays and making me gag.

As if antennae aren’t already twisting to the disclosure of faked scientific data on climate change along comes another musician, now “do gooder” to save us from ourselves to suggest meat is bad for the climate. “Citing United Nations reports, the singer said 18 per cent of harmful emissions come from agriculture – significantly more than the 13 per cent attributed to transport.  McCartney was joined by Rajendra Pach auri, chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), who said a tax on beef would “make a lot of sense”. http://english.aljazeera.net/news/europe/2009/12/2009123153511251744.html 

Just what we need, a tax on beef besides the sales tax. 

From Ireland, “IFA President Padraig Walshe has accused ex-Beatle Paul McCartney of leading a flawed campaign against meat that is contradictory on climate change. He said sustainable and environmentally-friendly grass based beef production from Ireland and other EU countries is being replaced on the EU market with beef from Brazil. Most of that meat is coming from areas where Amazon rainforest has been chopped down…’instead of campaigning MEPs to reduce the livestock herd in Europe, Paul McCartney should be lobbying to safeguard grass-based beef production here. This policy will halt the destruction of the rainforest.’ http://www.rte.ie/news/2009/1203/environment.html

 

The WSJ had this to say, “Macca is the founder of an outfit called Meat-Free Mondays (http://www.supportmfm.org/), which aims to get us all to eat less meat and rescue the planet in the process….Keen to get in on this publicity stunt, sorry… I mean facilitate cross-disciplinary dialogue and save life on Earth, was the non-meat-eating Edward McMillan-Scott MEP, vice president of the European Parliament. He chaired the Macca event in Brussels and had this to say: “Paul McCartney was the sole author of one of the most popular songs in history, ‘Yesterday,’ but he is here today to discuss tomorrow — your future and your children’s future. http://blogs.wsj.com/iainmartin/2009/12/03/paul-mccartney-yesterday-all-that-global-warming-seemed-so-far-away/ 

Personally, Sir McCartney, Live and Let Die,  and get out of my universe where you think you are an expert at advising anyone on anything. 

The best commentary ever comes from The Telegraph.   http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/greenpolitics/6720526/Sir-Paul-McCartney-and-his-green-celebrity-friends-should-put-up-or-shut-up.html “What has become evident in the run-up to Copenhagen is that every time someone comes up with some ludicrous, self-flagellating proposal, yet another chunk of the population becomes disenchanted with the whole issue. There can hardly be a farmer left in Britain who has any truck with fighting climate change after being told last week that 30 per cent of the livestock in this country needed to go.

We’re all for a balanced diet of salads, veggies, fruits, etc., but NO ONE is taking away my meat dinners.  Put a carbon tax on it, put a carbon tax on my farting, tax my auto, my tobacco, my roads, my booze, my guns, my hunting license, etc, and my fat meat eating ass when I die.  We are eating meat.  If the White House serves Kobe beef, be it from Texas or wherever- at some astronomical cost, the least I can afford is Meatloaf Monday on a pretty regular basis. 

Kobe beef is a special grade of beef from (Wagyu) cattle raised in Kobe, Japan. These cattle are massaged with sake and are fed a daily diet that includes large amounts of beer.  This produces meat that is extraordinarily tender, finely marbled, and full-flavored. It is also extremely expensive, often costing more than $100 per pound. via http://www.foodreference.com/html/artkobebeef.html  Oh yeah, it tastes divine. 

On a personal note- I too would like to be massaged with sake and fed large amounts of beer daily at our house. 

OUR HOUSE
Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
Our house is a very very very fine house
With two cats in the yard
Life used to be so hard
Now everything is easy, ’cause of you
I’ll light the fire
While you place the flowers in the vase that you bought today.

Our house, we serve meat and occasionally with flowers from our garden that the dog hasn’t pissed on.  It isn’t easy to eat meat.  Some folks get there meat at McDonald’s.  We have been known to hunt it, kill it, clean it, and store it to feed our family.  There is also the generously fabulous opulence that can be found in U.S. grocery stores. 

Yes, there are risks to eating food in general.   E Coli and other contaminants are out there.  You think someone starving in Somalia gives a rats ass about E Coli?  Sadly, many will eat the rats ass. 

While we eat our dinner, you can be rest assured we are not contaminating our ears with any music by McCartney, Sting, or Bono. 

Just to throw the dogs a bone:
