    Carson City is a long way from Las Vegas = 432 miles via US-95.

    I actually tried to do by best to be open minded and research these types of folks and their beliefs and why they think this way. I spent an evening about a month ago watching multiple documentaries on slaughter houses and whatnot that these animal rights activists produced. While I admit the scenes were pretty graphic and sad, and oftentimes cruel, I guess I'm just too cynical to be that bothered by it. Not trying to be funny but I literally watched a documentary that started out with "After you watch this you'll never eat meat again", while eating my dinner that consisted of a NY Strip and some veggies I grilled. Yeah it was pretty messed up in some parts but it didn't make my steak less delicious.

    What exactly do these folks want? The documentaries never actually went in depth about the end goal it was all just graphic shock value to I guess gross folks out of wanting to eat meat or drink dairy. And to be honest I couldn't be bothered doing any further research into their actual end goal because I don't really want to spend any more time reading up on these people...

    Do they want to ban meat in general? Ban slaughter houses and confined space type places and only allow free range livestock? Not raise livestock for food at all? Have no animal products at all?

    What exactly are the fighting for? I will admit that there were some things that I learned that were pretty messed up. Such as how I guess male chicks are just tossed into a chicken meat grinder thing at birth because they are worthless to the food industry. And I guess that is a practice that is being outlawed in some places now. But is it stuff like that they are fighting against or are they trying to say that eating animals at all is immoral and we shouldn't. Because I'm sorry I've seen plenty of heart warming videos about how cows have best friends and whatnot and they get sad when they see their friends leave but that still isn't going to make me not eat steak...

    That ain't right. Don't those folks know Bernie's got a bad heart. Some hottie shows up and Democrats will need a new front runner...

    These people need to cover their udders and act like adults. Poor Bernie is going to have a heart attack.

    I hope not. I'm no fan of that commie, but he better stay healthy until this race is over. If that poor dude died every Dem in the field would pledge some commie program in his honor. Plus could you imagine all the fake praise he'd get from people you know hate him, like Hillary? It would be sickening...

    Anytime I see a women with a newborn in public, I check out the melons, knowing she must be lactating! "slyly" mind you!

    Too many of these nutters lately seem to be in their 20s. No-one wants to have old boobs flashed in their face but what's wrong with these people?

    The last thing I was in my 20s was freaky over the top political.

    They were indoctrinated from kindergarten and don't know any better. I'd bet they have leftist parents also. I'm sure they're proud.

    And old is a relative term.

    Mostly they are-and I appreciate that.

    I've brought a few kids into this world, and seen a few out.

    A new mother takes just a bit to take off, but she really wants to.

    I can respect that.

    Anything worth looking at or was the gesture ruined by hairy armpits?

    I'd rather see naked men running around but whenever I do it's like looking at Michael Moore or Danny DeVito and then I wish I had a blindfold. :roflol:

    This could be possible at Buttigieg rally there are better odds of that happening (not the Danny Devito, Michael Moore types)...

    So long as you can see your toes (when sitting down) all is good.

    Nudism as a protest method is not new and not confined to the US. Look here:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doukhobors#Nudism_and_arson
    And here:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Femen
    Is there a Slavic angle here?

    It seems strange to me, because most of the people who protest this way seem to be on the Left, and yet doesn't the Left have the stereotype image of the Right as being mainly brutish males, chanting "take it off, take it off!"? Are we more likely not to drink milk because they complied with our demand? "If I show you my chest will you not drink milk for the rest of your life?" "Yeah! Go on!" Do they actually trust us???

    I suppose it's the supposedly-conventional religious people on the Right who are supposed to be .... what, offended? And why offend them? If I'm a religious fundamentalist, am I more likely to not drink milk because I saw a lady's chest?

    I don't get the logic here.

    I guess the idea is to get publicity, and it certainly works for that. I'll bet future Bernie rallies have increased attendance by males.

    Sounds like a super campaign tactic for Bernie. But I wonder if these animal rights people know what happens to cows if they aren't milked.
