Let's all have a giant steak on Saturday

Jennifer Granholm, you're an idiot.

Granholm’s proclamation, issued at the urging of vegetarian activists, cited the benefits of a plant-based diet and the increasing availability of alternatives to meat and dairy products for vegans and vegetarians. Following a series of “whereases,” Granholm encourages “the residents of this state to choose not to eat meat” on Saturday.
Never mind that she could have chosen any Friday other than tomorrow during Lent* and she would have had two million Catholics already on board. 

Granholm's pissed off the Farm Bureau, and at the rate employable people are leaving Michigan she'd better be trying to support the cattle ranchers and pig farmers as much as she can - if Detroit keeps going the way it is, there won't be anything but farmland left soon.  I'm really hoping they go through with their plan to have a barbecue on Saturday on the Capitol lawn.  The Michigan Senate isn't too happy about it either - they've issued a resolution to counter the proclamation.

So let's support what few Michiganders are actually working to feed our country, and have a giant steak, or burger, or several dozen chicken wings, or half a roasted pig on Saturday.  Like you need an excuse.
