It's all in the processing.
I'll eat just about anything, I just know people who won't eat Venison or elk. I don't know why, but I guess they are people who are unwilling to try something different. My wife was like that, but since she's tried Bison, she has had a change of heart. I think it has to do with the factory farms and all the crap put in the meat. Michael Pollan's books have helped broaden her diet.
The Chinese Carp is a real problem too. I think they are real boney lik shad.
If we are overrun by Monk Parrots, eat them. Same goes with feral pigs, Asian Carp and Snakehead fish. Feral Pig is very tasty. Don't eat Florida Pythons, they contain high levels of mercury. Rabbits are a good alternative to beef. They are high in protein, and offer high iron for those who need iron in their diet.
Prairie Chicken sold well, until people found out it is actually called the Prairie Dog.
I think some people would hurl if they unknowingly ate horse. Some people won't eat wild animals.
Mackeson's Triple Stout is great at room temp.
A local craft brewer, http://www.westsixth.com/ has gone to cans for the brews. I still like my long necks because they can be capped for the next day if needed.
Ignorance is the handmaiden of the tyrant.
Employers have ways to prevent you from having an outside job. If you work for Walmart or other mega retailers, your schedule can change at your boss's whim.
When I was a kid I remember my mom paying per pound before boarding a helicopter. She wasn't obese, so it wasn't a slam at her. Planes and helicopters have a limit to what they can lift. If I owned an airline I'd want two 150lb paying passengers than one 300lb passenger.
Get a MacBook, and use the included BootCamp to run Windows7. You will have to boot into the OS you want, but that shouldn't be much of a hassle unless you switch between OS's often.
If they had cleared it with the city/county, then the public may have not been properly informed by local officials. Not everyone is plugged into the media.
We are the government. The government is not some foreign entity, it is us.
