Happy Cows? – 13 October 2008
“Most of America’s cows are not “Happy Cows,” in spite of what the
California Milk Advisory Board might say in its nationally televised
commercials. Many cows in the Western state spend their lives
negotiating bogs of their own feces and urine. Elsewhere, they may be
tethered at stanchions. All are inseminated annually to keep them
lactating, and many regularly suffer painful udder infections. Thanks
to calcium depletion and foot infections, slaughter occurs after only
three or four lactation periods. The CMAB is a government agency and
so is not subject to false-advertising laws.”
– From “101 Reasons Why I’m a Vegetarian” by Pamela Rice
Isn’t it interesting that “The CMAB [California Milk Advisory Board]
is a government agency and so is not subject to false-advertising laws”?
Pretty scary, isn’t it? This is like saying that it’s perfectly ok for
the government to lie to the public!

No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful. At the
same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the
world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true
peace and compassion.
