There. The -- what's what's your favorite it's the Turkey. Let's one nebulous assays I just thought he looked at June do you -- 200 mile -- you need the rest of the year three times and it really. Odds are better Turkey sandwiches -- that's true they joining us on the AT&T hotline get it -- with -- AT&T rethink possible senior campaign her from -- up Virginia -- good morning Virginia happy Thanksgiving. It might not -- affecting -- where where are you having. Thanksgiving dinner. I'm at my house. I can't blame it eat some illicit. Social -- this year. So your subjecting all of your family to your.

Like with -- you can't have anything like shrimp cocktail was is forbidden right you can't have an idea. And the neat now or any animal products. But you don't think twice about killing a life. Pieces so hopefully broccoli the -- alive -- don't think -- of written -- out of -- -- it looks -- That they don't pay you back to you know break it you accidentally -- effortless style icons -- elect -- broccoli and a arrogant yet there really and that heart. I'm not offended at all but what what's the difference I mean if you kill. I just don't know where you drug related. I think we on the other animals you'll -- your heart not on maybe they yell. And Circuit City back pain pills are a lot. -- million of them are slaughtered every year while they're still babies they like I ever six month old. I'm making out they've heard their bread and on earth so quickly that their basically -- -- On many Africans are -- in Brooklyn. From me or not besides the party and make it to. So but but the alternative is they're never born right they're bred to be eaten so. Europe solution is they do never bring them in this world. Finally it was the supply and demand while the last man -- has the most the last well. Puppies. -- our -- we'll be reading and it all -- trick here Eric house. You know offense they can. For treatment lottery answered that in the art equipment parent or legal alternative suspect -- city -- about I ears and you know and that and that sort out on so many options available honestly hurt people you. You know go out and invest in your area that there are so many. I'm. Wrong doing in the provinces this one. Well there what are their next work cracked or broken what if they were. Euthanized. Mercifully. -- -- Another option Annie -- actually there are actors that you're killing options that there where it is that the last -- -- as slaughtered. I'm actually can't see it in Canada. I have but -- you're kind. Arming our were working on. Getting McDonnell. And then I think but they were on your record you and the acquisition -- at Thanksgiving into the market and be thankful. Virginia at a different time monuments in five years should be in a vegan what was there epiphany was there a watershed moment was there an event that made you say you know what I'm not gonna have a triple Wendy's we need a tofu burger. Even the -- actually and let down every night at Cingular now a lot. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And that -- -- about the actors are bringing things pick on I couldn't eat meat anymore I was. People like highlight film affiliate. At the VA I. I thought it when -- -- every at bat that. You know. Chickens and turkeys are our land the likes -- but -- -- breaking that are there. Very fragile leg the other -- split. I'm also that they can mean you know the -- I couldn't support that anymore and I went -- right there. Our social and so it not supporting it not supporting understand based on your acquired information we -- -- based on -- acquired information about how these animals are killed is one thing. But he's telling me that your desire to have a stake or hamburger just immediately went away and you didn't crave it. You know and then there -- so many operators that.

How much weight you lost the of the can. Obama. They did it. Go it. It was eating me out when I'm going Q you know McDonald's -- -- Wendy's I -- -- and get that you -- -- I think.
