The death of woke-fake meat

Anyone using Safari on a MacBook Pro want to test it? Thanks!

Why don’t you try Chrome on your MacBook? I use Chrome on my iPhone.

However, soylent was not sold as a meat replacement/substitute.

Soylent Green was supposed to be made out of plankton. In reality, it was made out of meat.

Speaking of “woke” food being made out of plants, remember the outrage a year ago, as articulated by that great economic luminary, Larry Kudlow?

(I tried to find an article that would not name names in my post, but failed. The old Fool system allowed some artful editing, but not the new one)

Am I missing something or is this (Mr K) as dumb as this article makes him sound? I thought grains already were plants. Or maybe there’s a meat based beer I haven’t been drinking. Do these people ever monitor themselves?

The process is, first, figure out what supports your own agenda, then make up facts to make your case…like that 1/16" ocean rise over 300 years stated by (a thought leader) .

No he’s really that dumb. A while back I thought about making a blog pointing out all the stupid things Mr K said. I thought it would be fun, but it was too much. He has the intellect of a toddler. And note, not only was he wrong about beer, his larger point was also completely incorrect. He has very limited mental abilities.

The article is a total farce, here is the origin of the nonsense:

“So get ready: You can throw back a plant-based beer with your grilled Brussels sprouts and wave your American flag. Call it July 4 green,” Kudlow said.

In no way must this be interpreted as beer having been anything but vegetable based. But instead of a good juicy steak you have “grilled Brussels sprouts.” Beer is one of the few safe things provided the teetotalers don’t bring back Prohibition.

The article is left wing poison.

I finally figured out the source of the misunderstanding! Americans drink Budweiser which is brewed by horses! ROFLMAO

I predict it would be so great for the animals that the domestic breeds of pigs, cattle, chickens, and rabbits would go extinct over most of the planet.

Nothing is better for animal’s “all natural” purpose in this world
(eat + reproduce) than humans learning to eat them.

Philosopher Dan Dennett commented that since a prime driver is to have your genes reproduce and prosper, domesticated animal have made a great bargain by giving up their freedom since domesticated herds are hundreds of times larger that the population in the wild.

I’ll believe Dennett when I see him enthusiastically joining a “domesticated herd” of people. Slave owners love to tell you how great the slaves have it, but, oddly, they never seem to want to switch places.

I noticed that in a piece of propaganda that Ted Turner produced “Gods And Generals”. All the slaves in the piece were well fed, well clothed, and loved their masters".

Beyond Meat seems to have a fairly limited and understandable ingredient list. Impossible Burger’s list is rather more intimidating.

Here’s the ingredient list for Beyond Breakfast Sausage:

Water, Pea Protein*, Expeller-Pressed Canola Oil, Refined Coconut Oil, Natural Flavors, Inactived Yeast, Rice Protein, Methylcellulose, Yeast Extract [niacin (Vitamin B3), pyridoxine hydrochloride (Vitamin B6), thiamin hydrochloride (Vitamin B1), riboflavin (Vitamin B2), folic acid (Vitamin B9), cyanocobalamin (Vitamin B12)], Apple Extract, Salt, Pomegranate Extract, Vinegar, Lemon Juice Concentrate, Sunflower Lecithin, Beet Juice Extract (for color), Carrot.

Contains yeast, so not usable over Passover.

This is a good thing. I want real meat , not fake meat. Don’t give me something you have to treat with chemicals and additives to create something that is like meat. Just saying and IMHO…doc

I am an outsider to the extent that I rarely eat beef, pork or poultry but I also have no interest in trying processed imitation meat. We do eat home made sweet potato black bean burgers and shrimp creole using cashews, and lentil loaf (our version of meat loaf), but we use food as our ingredients.

I guess I am saying that they may have a tough time finding a market even with vegetarians many of whom have no interest in eating heavily processed carp.
