Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced that the USDA will
purchase up to $170 million of pork, lamb, chicken, and catfish for
federal food nutrition assistance programs in order to help farmers
and ranchers, who are being impacted by the nation's drought.

It’s not surprising that the industry
that probably causes the most devastation in God’s Creation is the
one that is being subsidized by the government. Sadly, power, greed
and profit seem to trump ethics in this arena. The animal
agriculture industry is simply put, unsustainable. Every time the
government comes to the rescue of this industry, it’s telling us
that it doesn’t care about God’s creation or any of its creatures.
This is why it’s so important that consumers take a stand against
this industry and choose compassion, health, restoration, justice,
joy and peace by adopting a plant-based diet.
