Big Abuses and Bad Lies at America’s Factory Farms – The Shocking Truth

Leave a comment

This article from MERCOLA should be read to anyone who believes CAFO industrialized farms are anything remotely similar to, humane.

“As a result, most are overcrowded (some are kept indoors their entire lives), suffer from hunger, thirst and illness, are subjected to painful procedures like tail docking, and sometimes are kept conscious or even skinned alive during the process of slaughtering.”

More animals than ever suffer from injuries and stress on factory farms. Veal calves and gestating sows are so confined as to suffer painful bone and joint problems.

The unnatural high-grain diets provided in feedlots cause severe gastric distress in many animals. And faulty or improperly used stun guns cause the painful deaths of thousands of cows and pigs a year.

A New York Times Op-ed column suggests one way to “solve” this problem — genetically engineer livestock so that they suffer less.

Neuroscientists have found that by damaging a laboratory rat’s anterior cingulate cortex, they can block its affective perception of pain. Recently, scientists have learned to genetically engineer animals so that they lack certain proteins that are important to the operation of the anterior cingulate cortex.

So the animals will still be mutilated, diseased, and stewing in their own waste products, but at least they’ll be so brain-damaged that they won’t care.And some would actually want us to believe that this is progress?

It is a sad testimony to the society we live in today that we’ve allowed corporations to turn family-farming methods into cost-saving, mass-production strategies, which can endanger public health and treat animals so cruelly.

Many, if not most, factory farms treat animals like production units, not living creatures. As a result, most are overcrowded (some are kept indoors their entire lives), suffer from hunger, thirst and illness, are subjected to painful procedures like tail docking, and sometimes are kept conscious or even skinned alive during the process of slaughtering.

The Crime and Killing Fields of Mexico

Leave a comment

by: Ruthie Hendrycks

Why are the intense crime and killing fields of Mexico, whose northern border meets the United States southern border – NOT BEING DISCUSSED? Why is the real threat of this violence that has already started to rear its ugly head in the United States via an unsecured border not being addressed as a security risk?

Why do we have an Administration and a few Politicians promoting an Guestworker/Pathway = Amnesty plan, instead of taking charge of the situation and enforcing our laws, securing the border and providing safety to the American people? More

2010 Census Most Personally Invasive Ever

_____________________________________

In 1790, the first census was taken in the United States, just three years after the ratification of the Federalist’s Constitution, which mandated the census. Prior to this, under our original constitution, the Articles of Confederation, no such requirement existed.

The 1790 census asked only for the number of people in one’s household, their ages (which was reported as an age range, not a specific age), their sex and little else. The purpose of the census, at that time, was to enumerate the population in order to estimate the number of representatives each state should be allowed in Congress. Period.

Since then, the census has become increasingly demanding of personal information, though the transition has been so gradual as not to cause much alarm among the people. Also, it has been, until now, completely voluntary.

That voluntary aspect of the census stops with 2010. Not only will you be asked many more questions about yourself, your family and your home, but you will be required to answer every question. If you don’t, a census taker will come to your door to get the missing information. If they are not successful in obtaining it, they will ask your adjacent neighbors for the information (good luck with that, these days, since most people don’t know their neighbors’ names, let alone anything else about them).

If the census taker still can’t get the questions answered, More

Virginia Thumbs Nose at ObamaCare

CCHC Health Care News

Citizens’ Council on Health Care
www.healthcarefreedom.us

Yesterday, according to The Washington Post, the Virginia General Assembly passed a bill to make it illegal for the government to require individuals to purchase health insurance. This is a direct assault against ObamaCare. President Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi concede that the individual mandate—forcing all citizens to buy health insurance, and then only insurance approved by the government—is THE key to achieving their goals for ObamaCare. If everyone is not required to purchase health insurance, then the federal government will not have the money to pay for all the subsidies, special deals, and special interest handouts in the bill.

The Virginia Senate passed the bill last month and Governor Robert McDonnell said Wednesday that he intends to sign it. Every state of the Union should follow in this effort to assert, claim, and retain the Constitutional rights of citizens.

ObamaCare – The “Deem” Scheme!

There are amazing machinations underway to try to escape traditional (and constitutional) voting protocols in the U.S. House of Representatives. Democrats are said to be following the “Slaughter Strategy” devised by Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-NY).

Here’s the plan: Essentially, the House wants to “DEEM” that they have passed the Senate bill when they pass the reconciliation budget bill to amend (fix) the Senate bill. Then they want the President to sign the Senate health care bill that they never voted on. Then they want the Senate to agree to pass the reconciliation bill that the House voted on to fix the Senate bill that the House never voted on. With me still? This is unprecedented corruption and unconstitutionality.
