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.


Do You Use Chicken Broth? – 18 March 2009
By Mary T. Hoffman

Have you noticed all the commercials for chicken broth lately? Every time I see one of these promotions I wonder how many people realize what “chicken broth” really is.

Hens, who have outlived their economic usefulness as egg producers in the most horrid, filthy, over-crowded, dark, ammonia-smelling surroundings imaginable, are pulverized to produce “chicken broth.” The bodies of these spent hens are in such bad shape that they can’t be sold as “meat,” so the industry – wanting to squeeze every bit of profit out of what would be considered “garbage” – sells the public “chicken broth.”

Want to stop being “taken for a ride” by the exploiters who profit by the public’s ignorance of the facts? It’s easy and fun – Go Vegan!
