A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"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.


More Government Corruption – 13 January 2009
By Mary T. Hoffman

According to an article in the January 15, 2009 issue of “The Washington Spectator,” there are regulations that this Bush Administration, before their tenure is over, would like to give to industries “as going away presents.” One such rule is described as follows:

“A rule that allows corporate factory farms to ignore the Clean Water Act and dump hundreds of thousands of tons of fecal waste into waterways without obtaining permits from the Environmental Protection Agency. A concentrated animal feeding operation housing 100,000 hogs produces the same amount of fecal waste as a city of one million people. The EPA estimates that the industrial farms generate three times as much waste as do humans. The same animal factories were exempted from federal community right-to-know laws that require them to report air emissions generated by animal waste. That’s two big wins for the National Chicken Council. National Pork Producers Council, National Milk Producers Federation, United Egg Producers and the National Turkey Foundation, whose lobbyists met with EPA and administration officials before the rule was drafted.”

Since our so-called government protection agencies can, in our opinion, be so easily bought off, the only solution is to go vegan and put these corrupt industries out of business once and for all. One more excellent reason to Go Vegan!
