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!

"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
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.
