I just was going over all the State Measures for California before I vote tomorrow and Proposition 2 really bothers me. It states certain farm animals be allowed for the majority of every day to fully extend their limbs or wings, lie down, stand up and turn around. Limited exceptions apply. I wonder what these exceptions are? Anyway, they are asking farmers to be more humane to our live food supply. The ads against it say it would be costly and force us to buy our eggs from Mexico. Why would we resort to buy eggs from Mexico?
So here’s a shame on you rant for the day…Shame on you who would buy from another place because of better regulations and cost. Who cares what it costs is? Why shouldn’t we be more humane to animals?
I saw a movie called ‘What the Bleep Do You Know’ and in it, a Dr. Masaru Emoto presented some pretty significant evidence that water crystals reacts to negative and positive stimulation. Since mammals are 98% water, we too react to this stimulation. Maybe, just maybe this would mean we are eating negative stimuli. Just think of it, we are all affected by what we eat. That’s enough for me to vote for better treatment of confined animals. Why would anyone not vote to be more humane?
