I found this in the "About Us" section of that very website:
"PETA Kills Animals" is a project of the Center for Consumer Freedom (CCF), a nonprofit coalition of restaurants, food companies, and consumers working together to promote personal responsibility dedicated to protecting the full range of choices that American consumers currently enjoy.
In addition to malicious animal-rights activists, we stand up to the "food police," environmental scaremongers, neo-prohibitionists, meddling bureaucrats, and other self-anointed saints who claim to "know what's best" for you.
On their affiliate website,
You can click a pull down menu with celebrities and activist groups they are watching.
It seems very clear to me that these sites are set up by giant corporations, er, public citizens, who hate the fact that some groups and celebrities are telling the truth, or better yet hurting their sales by informing the public about their food choices.
Fucking Jane Goodall is on their list!
I went to their parent website:
They try to say that Trans-Fats are good for you, and in this article:
They defend harmful chemicals in the food that these huge food companies make.
I think you need to look deeper than a catchy headline when you look into learning anything.
There is always an ulterior motive.
I am clear that PETA's ulterior motive is animal rights, but it seems that these websites you posted have an ulterior motive of blinding consumers into thinking their shitty food is OK, and not to worry about it.
Make your own choices indeed!
Before you make your choice, inform yourself, dig to the motive.
Go to these sites and see what organizations they are against, you will not find any organizations they are FOR, because that would expose them as liars! If they listed McDonald's and the like you would easily see their scam.
Read their stuff, and read their enemies' stuff, then decide what ideas you are most close to
I will always side with a group that lays it's ideas out in the open. Greenpeace, MADD, PETA, I know where they are coming from. Consumer Freedom? I don't know where they are coming from. Obesity is OK, Fatty food is good for you, Soda, and candy are fine for you, it seems a lot like the opposite of what I have ever learned.

I really would like to find a way to see more of Staba's photography.
Cause when i read the flyer for the Sincerity/Sarcasm exhibit you guys did a little while back, the little bio part on what his photographs mostly consisted of, seemed very interesting.
plus Staba's style on a skateboard, is fucking amazing.

Fuck Mc.Donalds.And there limp grey fat soaked *potato fries.
hey Ed,Have you ever eaten a Mc.Griddle?
Fuckin disguisting!I almost threw up after eating it.I only ate it cause i was hungry,But it had nasty-ass bacon with cheese and those pancake buns with syrup in it.
Eggs,Bacon,Cheese,Pancakes,And syrup should never be mixed together into some shitty sandwhich.A huge bight of that tastes sick.
And we only stopped there cause it was on a highway.I luckily havnt eaten at mcdonalds since then,about a year ago.But i try avoiding that place.Which i do.
*I don't know if they are really potatoes.
