Beef Hamburgers BANNED At New York Public Schools Due to Animal Cruelty

A video produced by an organization OTHER than PETA has caused the New York Public Schools to BAN beef hamburgers until conditions can be improved at the Westland/Hallmark Meat Co. meat factory in California.

The Humane Society has a whole collection of videos showing SPECTACULARLY how the "corporate mentality" leads to some REALLY deplorable treatment of animals.

You see, what many people don't realize is that this is how they would like to treat PEOPLE.

You see, the drive for profit generally COMPLETELY deactivates ANY tendency to have a shred of respect for living beings in these corporate types and these videos are PERFECT examples of that.

Although it looks like the Humane Society itself is in trouble on this one. If I understand this correctly, they were sitting on this information about the cruelty going on at the California plant for MONTHS before they turned it over to the USDA. Of course it sounds to me like the Humane Society was investigating the USDA as well for not paying enough attention to what is going on at these plants.

For the moment, the Westland plant is shut down pending their presenting the USDA with a plan for how they are going to prevent such horrendous behavior in the future.

Reports of any sort of hostile takeover attempt of the Human Society by PETA I imagine are greatly exaggerated ...

Yet, film after film has been made on how corporately pharmed animals live a life of misery, and no one says a word.

And you know me, ax, you know i gotta have my red meat, so it's not about that. i just think animals -- and the people who eat them -- were better off on smaller, family/community farms, where conditions were cleaner, animals had room to move, and weren't fed dead other animals, had room to move and lie down, etc. By the time i was old enough to see a pig slaughtered, it was done quickly and cleanly with a bullet to the head. Btw, did you know a pig in pain sounds like a woman screaming? i know cause my uncle was a bad shot, one year.

Yes ... in fact I once heard a theory that the Jewish and Muslim prohibition against pork has to do with a pig sounding WAY too much like a person when it's slaughtered.
