Going to lay down a few facts not exactly related to EE, but that are important to write.

Veganism is for non-human animals. Just animals, trillions of whom are violently killed YEARLY. Animals are the victims of human supremacy, humans are not the victims of human supremacy. There are thousands of groups, organizations, and movements for humans that EXCLUDE non-human animals, so people wanting to include humans in the ONE movement for animals confuse me:

Advocating for animal liberation, is animal liberation FROM HUMANS.

I’m vegan for animals. Who is vegan for humans?

Most vegans I know also advocate on behalf of humans, note keyword of “direct”, such as “active” below, although veganism has tangential benefits to humans (environment, health), since the focus is animals, these benefits are not required:

Vegans can directly limit human suffering (actively participate in human-focused causes, goals, movements).

Vegans can also NOT directly limit human suffering (not actively participate in human-focused causes, goals, movements).

Vegans canNOT, however, NOT directly limit animal suffering (as vegans, we consume pbd – plant based diets – and reject products tested on animals, entertainment using animals, clothing including animals, etc., and if you do not do these, you’re not vegan).

In other words, ANIMALS ARE THE FOCUS OF VEGANISM. Not humans.

I came across a person who verbally assaulted a vegan, a vegan who’s vegan for the animals, and I wonder, are these same people vocally outspoken against, for example, Amnesty because Amnesty doesn’t include animals in its outreach? Because consistency is important: if veganism includes humans, then humans must include veganism. In a brief conversation I recently had, a vegan advocating against environmental racism said FOR THAT REASON that they don’t support groups that exclude animals, yet being vegan is not fundamental to opposing environmental racism. In other words, if you’re opposed to human oppression as a vegan, you can’t be opposed to human oppression because veganism is not a core philosophy to opposing human oppression if you embrace the same belief this person does.

I’m baffled that people want to include humans in the ONE movement that seeks to liberate animals FROM humans.

We can talk forever about the many ways animal exploitation negatively affects humans, but humans won’t be vegan to cure their problems, and humans are at fault for those problems, and as has been historically and currently proven: if humans won’t stop animal exploitation FOR THE ANIMALS, they will always resume it FOR THE HUMANS.

As to EE’s video above, at some point humans have to decide to be the intellectual giants they claim to be or continue being the absolutely foolish, greedy, violent killers they are. If we were not talking about the mass, incalculable suffering, and violent death required to violate and kill trillions of animals yearly, this would be parody. It’s embarrassing that humans devolve into comatose comedians when asked to apply ethics to the ones who deserve it the most. SL

Kindness and compassion too much to ask? are we as a species up to the task?

If you’re not vegan, you’re neither pro-choice nor pro-life …

June 27, 2022
by

Source PETA


For all the pro-choice non-vegans out there enraged at the loss of a federal guarantee of legal abortion, just remember: every time you consume, wear, or use animals, you are willingly participating in the reproductive exploitation, bodily control, and violent death of THOSE animals, you really are THAT hypocrite; and for the non-vegan “prolife” brigade whose “concern” for other people ceases to exist after they’re born, you’re literally a screeching contradiction, imagine protecting guns more than protecting kiddos while also eating babies.

Encouraging news, though: you can be vegan and save lives NOW, you don’t have to wait until November because ANIMALS ARE ALWAYS DENIED BOTH CHOICE AND LIFE.

And before you get enraged that PETA exists versus being enraged about the factual horrors demonstrated in PETA’s above video, do note that you’re not required to donate to PETA or even pretend to know what PETA is, you can be vegan for the animals and commit to saving THEIR body autonomy and THEIR lives regardless, because as long as you’re being outraged or a hypocrite, you can realistically beneficially impact other beings who don’t get the opportunity to protest the required violence, suffering, and death inflicted on them via twitter groups, prayer circles, or donation-seeking profiteers: if each person threatening to boycott the USA or the 15 still-soul-sucking republicans who favored gun control legislation (most of whom aren’t seeking reelection, surprisesurprise) were vegan, imagine how much less bloodshed, misery, pain, and suffering there would be in the world.

I cannot think of anything more pro-choice AND pro-life than veganism. SL


PS: don’t forget to read about the accepted and standard abuses that occur IN ADDITION TO the-already violent suffering required of animals in “animal agriculture” as part of propagandized “humane exploitation”:

I cannot tell you how many people claim that “mean/disrespectful/militant” vegans are why they aren’t vegan. First, since you don’t know every vegan, just assume there are many who are “super nice”, so if you won’t be vegan FOR THE ANIMALS, be vegan for the nice vegans. And why do you demand other people be nice so you’ll not abuse others? It’s disingenuous rhetoric, like, who do you normally blame for your inability to be a decent human when “convenient vegan scapegoats” aren’t around?

(And, let’s be honest – not that you’re capable, lol – if you use social media to lie to, deceive, and manipulate a vegan, your position is not based on care, concern, or respect, it’s based on perpetuating suffering and abuse in manners that makes you feel comfortable causing suffering and abuse. –insertshruggingemoji–)

Second, forcibly impregnating animals, separating them from their infants, mutilating babies, macerating babies, killing babies, stabbing animals, cutting animals’ throats, disemboweling and burning/scalding animals alive, is what is “militant/violent/aggressive”. Even the “quickest” killing is inherently cruel and requires animal suffering, you cannot separate yourself from that fact just because your species benefits from euphemizing that fact. Vegan words describing how YOU physically exploit animals isn’t “militant” but what you ACTUALLY DO TO ANIMALS, is. If you don’t like what vegans say, stop causing it.

Third, people who threaten to abuse animals more because vegans exist, are disturbing; you think you’re being righteous with your feigned indignation and bluster, but you’re either so full of self-doubt and a crisis of conscience that you overcompensate with threats of animal abuse to maintain “superior species legitimacy” and perceived entitlement, or, you actually are psychopathic and rely on the rah-rah social status quo of others who also are challenged by decency to validate your disgusting threats of violence in addition to the violence you already support.

But here’s the thing: if you honestly think forcibly using, violating, and killing animals is “humane”, then what is MORE humane than NOT forcibly using, violating, and killing animals? You don’t kill and eat animals because you honestly believe that NOT killing and eating animals is inhumane.

It’s just basic logic and decency: for all the dog and/or cat lovers out there, what is better for dogs and cats? A nonvegan existence where cats and dogs are killed and eaten globally? Or a vegan world where dogs and cats are NOT killed and consumed? Did you ever stop to consider that maybe people feel comfortable eating dogs because you feel comfortable eating pigs??? It’s all part of the same violent, vicious cycle that you perpetuate regardless of YOUR chosen victim species or OTHERS’ chosen victim species.

One more point: my twitter account is on a permanent restriction, my main profile and all the media I share come with required warnings due to “sensitive/mature content”; I share videos, pictures, and USDA data, ie., data that comes from the actual anag industry and the actual USDA. I also share anag data from other countries. As such, it’s both violently hypocritical AND revealing of nonvegans to partially censor and wholly restrict MY content, all of which YOU, the anag industry and the anag industry cheerleaders, relentlessly defend as “humane”….. I mean, if it’s so “humane”, why do you report me for sharing it and why does it get permanently restricted? It’s almost as if – shocker – it’s NOT humane.

You actually substantiate my point: if you can’t even watch animal exploitation or read about it, even in the form of records or spreadsheets, imagine the animals having to ACTUALLY EXPERIENCE IT IN THE FORM OF VIOLATION AND VIOLENT DEATH.

So yeah, vegans ARE better than you. If that bothers you, be vegan. For the animals. SL

USDA releases years of slaughterhouse records following lawsuit

June 13, 2022
by
Veterinary neglect is common to all farms visited. Animals who suffer from innumerable health problems are not treated for reasons of economic profitability. October, 2019. Castilla la Mancha, Source Tras Los Muros



No laws can protect animals bred to be dead, why people champion regulations or laws that REQUIRE violent death, is bizarre. In slaughterhouses, where animals are violently killed after brief existences of suffering, there is NO REGULATION that can protect animals – it’s a SLAUGHTERHOUSE.

I disagree with the “transparency” term for the above reasons, same as I don’t praise CCTV in slaughterhouses: slaughterhouses are where animals go to violently die, how anyone can praise a recording of animals violently dying, is bizarre. If people are so happy to use CCTV as demonstrative of animal “protection”, what is more protective of animals than NOT KILLING ANIMALS?

Following a lawsuit, the USDA released the below records establishing the frequent torture that occurs IN ADDITION TO animal violation and suffering and violent death. It’s almost as if, despite the “humane-treatment-of-animals” mantra of anag cheerleaders, they’re admitting to the abject horrors defenseless animals are forced to endure: if killing animals is so “humane” there would be no reason to try to withhold slaughterhouse “violations”.

Veganism is the ONLY humane and the ONLY logical protection for animals. SL

Marking a step towards transparency in food production, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has disclosed on its website records revealing the handling of farmed animals in slaughterhouses. The records, dating back to January of 2017, were made publicly available following a settlement between the federal agency and animal protection organizations Animal Welfare Institute (AWI) and Farm Sanctuary.

In a complaint filed in 2018, the nonprofits alleged that the USDA had violated the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) by failing to release requested records showing its enforcement of the Humane Methods of Slaughter Act and the Poultry Products Inspection Act. These laws govern the treatment of billions of animals killed for food in the U.S. each year as well as food safety.

“This is the biggest step in improving government transparency at slaughter since the USDA began disclosing these records pursuant to [the Freedom of Information Act],” said Erin Sutherland, a staff attorney with AWI’s farmed animal program. 

The release of the USDA records, despite a failed attempt by the agency to have the case dismissed, offers what AWI calls “a rare window into a heavily guarded aspect of food production.” The group believes that the proactive disclosure of animal handling records could boost transparency and safety in the U.S. food system.

While traditional FOIA requests require federal agencies to release information upon request, the process can be lengthy. “The delay associated with fulfilling these requests renders the records almost useless by the time they are received,” AWI’s farmed animal program director Dena Jones said in 2018. But according to the law, FOIA also requires federal agencies to “proactively” disclose records subject to frequent FOIA requests.

In the fiscal year 2019, the USDA received a total of 26,458 FOIA requests, the majority—77 percent—going to its Farm Production and Conservation program which includes such agencies as the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) and the Food Safety and Inspection Service. That year, the USDA reported that it is taking steps to increase its proactive disclosures, including making FOIA information more accessible on its websites and publishing monthly APHIS FOIA logs.

The settlement brings an encouraging step. Yet there is much to be done when it comes to transparency in animal agriculture. The industry is protected by industry favoring ag-gag laws that silence investigators and whistleblowers who often provide the public’s only insight into the realities faced by animals and workers inside factory farms and slaughterhouses. Corporations also wield immense power over their supply chains, compounding the secrecy in food production and complicating the role of government oversight. 

While there is a long way to go, Farm Sanctuary general counsel Emily von Klemperer said the agreement by the USDA to publicly post slaughter records constitutes “a huge victory.” 

“These records routinely expose inhumane treatment of animals at slaughter facilities and are critical to our efforts to educate the public and hold the agency accountable to enforce what minimal legal protections farm[ed] animals have,” she says.

Surge: Why Vegan

May 31, 2022

Land of Hope and Glory Trailer, Source YouTube



What compels people to argue against veganism, or try to debate issues ad nauseam, with vegans? I have never seen such cowardly and belligerent behaviour than from antivegans. To wake up daily with the soul purpose of trying to debunk vegansim is sad and pathetic: you literally defend animal abuse rather than defend animals, which is particularly bizarre considering we live in a world where, since >90% of the global population effortlessly condones animal suffering, nobody is being forced to NOT abuse animals and nobody needs further motivation.

I’ve said it 1000 times: the deception and lies that people embrace is fam.iliar manipulation and a horrific embarrassment, fortifying an-already cruel foundation of normalized violence, causing suffering based on what YOU as a human consider tolerable but will NEVER be forced to experience as an animal.

I honestly believe that humans, via their anthropocentric filter, consider animals as mere commodities or dead objects, meant to only benefit humans, so that any “life” they have been “given”, no matter how violent, brief, painful, or miserable, is a “gift” … because they’re supposed to be dead.

You mock them as bad mothers, even while reproductively exploiting them & denying the maternal bond you facilitated; you consider them as violent, validating your grocery store shopping by reflecting on obligate carnivores in the wild and then pretending that you’re somehow superior to animals you just compared yourself to; you say they’re necessary to be environmentally responsible while denying that killing them is contrary to your position; you like to ignore that their blood, bones, disease, gore, feces, rot, bacteria, decomp, and confinement are causing environmental destruction and pandemics; you enjoy your human supremacy to define their suffering in terms that makes you feel comfortable causing it. Wretched and selfish.

You don’t care, you don’t love SL

Ethics

We consider ourselves a nation of animal lovers, they are our friends, companions and even members of our families. However, as a nation we also slaughter one billion land animals every year as well as billions of marine animals, for no necessary reason.

We are born into societies and cultures that condition us from birth into believing that animal products are normal, natural and necessary. Our societies dictate many philosophies and ideologies that we carry with us through life and in the case of animals, we are told to love some – and eat others. We have normalised behaviour that we would normally consider to be horrific, using excuses and ingrained justifications to hide behind the reality of our immoral actions.

We are indoctrinated with advertising and marketing, further reinforcing the idea of separation and segregation between species, with decades of devaluing and reducing the lives of farm animals to nothing more than commodities for human disposal. In many respects we are vulnerable to the power society holds over us, but at what point do we choose to look past what we are told and seek the truth?

Animals suffer, just like us. They feel a vast spectrum of emotions including love, joy, grief, fear and pain. The fact that animals experience pain means that they have an innate preference to avoid it. Therefore it is our moral obligation to protect them from unnecessary suffering – however we have normalised exploiting them in the trillions, profiting from their gentleness and their innocence.

The suffering that occurs in order to produce animal products is immense – and it is all unnecessary. The consumption of animal products has no necessity in the human diet and is in fact massively detrimental to our health and life longevity. Moving from an animal-based diet to a vegan diet is directly opposing animal cruelty and oppression. Every purchase we make is a vote for the type of world that we want to live in, therefore when we buy animal products, or products tested on them – we are saying that we are comfortable living in a world that inflicts violence upon animals. However when we choose the vegan option, we are stating that we oppose animal cruelty and wish to live in a compassionate, non-violent world.




Environment

Livestock systems currently cover 45% of the total land on earth, with this in mind it is not surprising that animal agriculture is the leading cause of the destruction of the planet. Raising animals for meat, dairy and eggs requires a huge amount of energy, in fact more greenhouse gas emissions are produced from just animal agriculture than all of the transportation industry combined.

Animal agriculture is also responsible for causing the largest mass species extinction of the past 65 million years (which we are currently in) – and by the year 2048 we could see fishless oceans. Although eating meat, dairy and eggs is deemed an acceptable choice by society’s standards, by doing so we are paying for one of the leading causes of ocean dead zones, water pollution, habitat destruction, top soil erosion, species extinction and greenhouse gas emissions.

Due to all of these contributing factors we are fast approaching a vast shift in our planet’s climate, something that will impact every living being on earth. It doesn’t have to be this way, one person CAN make a difference. Each day, a person who eats a vegan diet saves 1,100 gallons of water, 45 pounds of grain, 30 sq ft of forested land and 20 lbs CO2 equivalent.



Health

There are many common misconceptions surrounding the necessity of animal products for a healthy diet, many coming from animal agriculture propaganda. But do we really need animal products to be healthy, or do they inhibit a healthy body and mind?

One of the biggest health concerns of consuming animal products is the extensively documented associations that they have with a myriad of unnecessary and preventable diseases including heart disease, cancer, strokes, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, kidney failure, high cholesterol, autoimmune disease and osteoporosis. In fact consuming animal products has been linked to 15 of the top 16 killers of people in the west, however by consuming a plant-based diet not only are you able to prevent these diseases but in many cases reverse them as well.

Although the meat, dairy and egg industries tell us that animal products contain essential nutrients that we cannot find elsewhere, this simply isn’t true as every nutrient that the human body needs to survive and thrive, can be found in abundance in the plant kingdom.

First-Ever Cruelty Investigation into an Organic (“Humane/High-Welfare/Certified/LIELIELIE”) Dairy Farm

May 23, 2022
by

Source Animal Recovery Mission


If animal agriculture was so humane and ethical, the actual industry would be offering information and documentation of the slaughter “process”, not undercover investigators/employees; as it is, the industry execs and supporters relentlessly pursue ag-gag and attempt to criminalize the people who expose them.

Needing to continually update it’s PR, anag floats “organic”, “high welfare”, “certified humane”, etcetcetc., human-centric words to define animals’ required suffering and violent death, just so YOU can take their flesh and the calves’ naturally-intended milk instead … as an aging human with teeth…If being “humane” to animals is important, NOT killing/consuming/breastfeeding-from animals is MORE IMPORTANT.

Their repeated violations, fear, pain, and premature and infant violent death are what YOU PAY FOR. If you have to label a violent “process” as “humane” and that still requires violent death, that means it is inherently NOT, just like my plant-based food requires no HUMANE labels.

This is an industry that values DEATH, which makes animal lives cost-prohibitive: animals are products, bred-to-be-dead, and as such, NO concern to their care/comfort/emotions/safety is regarded or even necessary as all are precluded by animals’ “worth” as mere products.

And no, animals aren’t treated like trash, they’re treated WORSE than trash since trash lacks the capacity for pain, suffering, fear, and misery. SL

Animal Recovery Mission’s (ARM) investigation at Natural Prairie Dairy stands as the first-ever cruelty investigation into an organic dairy farm in the United States, and the third installment of the largest dairy investigation of all time into Fairlife and Select Milk Producers, Inc. The first two investigations released by ARM were Operation Fair Oaks Farms and Operation Fairlife.

Natural Prairie Dairy is located in Channing, TX, and houses over 25,000 cows between its four locations. Over four months, an ARM investigator documented cows stabbed with screwdrivers, kicked and dragged when unable to stand due to illness and fatigue. Cows were repeatedly and violently inseminated and mother cows were witnessed being chased while giving birth, and the babies immediately ripped away from their mothers.

The following video footage was compiled by the ARM investigative team between March and July 2019. The farm is still open for business today.

People concerned with buying organic dairy products are being deceived by the animal agriculture industry about the realities of how their food is being produced and the companies they support, which ARM documented and exposed during its latest four-month investigation.

Organic dairies, such as Natural Prairie Dairy, are often viewed by consumers and the public as naturally more humane and ethical than non-organic farms. But just because a farm calls itself “organic” does not mean it’s cruelty-free. In most cases, the term “organic” serves a very different purpose, one that has nothing to do with the humane and ethical treatment of animals.

Consumers pay top dollar for organic milk and dairy products, compared to conventional products, and they justify making such expensive purchases because the products are supposedly better for their health, the environment, and for the animals.

On organic milk labels, dairy companies reinforce this message, showing images of cows smiling and grazing in green pastures. That could not be further from the truth. Do these cows look happy to you?

The following evidence was compiled by undercover ARM investigators at Natural Prairie Dairy over four months. Investigators who return to the farm – or any farm like it – will witness similar acts of cruelty.

Cows are removed from their holding barns every eight hours to be milked, day and night. It is important to note that Natural Prairie Dairy is equipped with camera surveillance and that the actions of employees are recorded and overseen by management. As the company states on its website, all Natural Prairie Dairy employees receive training in “animal welfare and handling before they begin work on the farm.”

“Unfortunately, [Natural Prairie] failed to deter and/or stop the systemic cruelty, torment, and squalid living conditions suffered by the cows,” ARM stated in the Operation Natural Prairie report.

Natural Prairie Dairy promises to “take care of the cow” on its website. “A sustainable farm ecosystem means giving our cows the very best care.” In light of the farm’s commitment to animal welfare, the ARM investigator witnessed extreme and violent animal cruelty within the first few hours of employment.

Daily, cows were tormented, kicked, hit with shovels, and stabbed with screwdrivers by the farm’s so-called animal caregivers.

During its grueling investigation, ARM concluded with the same abhorrent conditions – abuse and cruelty towards the dairy cows – that was evident in ARM’s conventional dairy farm investigations. Amongst these criminal acts upon animals, the investigator documented dairy cows being tormented.

Downer cows were repeatedly beaten to get up. Cows that couldn’t prop themselves back up were stabbed with screwdrivers, pulled by the head by front loaders, dragged, picked up by the bucket and driven to a holding area where they awaited transport to be sold for slaughter.

Other cows were left to die slowly in barns, some cows taking a whole day or longer to die, all under the supervision of management. Cows were seen falling into cesspools and almost drowning.

Many of the cows suffer from infection and lameness and were reluctant to eat, so they were force-fed with metal tubes by untrained employees. The ARM investigator also documented dead calves and cows in a dumpsite.

In 2008, Organic Valley terminated its contract with Natural Prairie Dairy for suspected violations of the USDA’s Guidelines for Organic Certification of Dairy Livestock, among other organic labeling standards.

The average size Organic Valley member farm has approximately 65-70 cows, according to an investigation conducted by the Cornucopia Institute at Natural Prairie Dairy in 2008. Satellite imagery indicated that unlike legitimate organic farms, that commonly have one cow per acre, Natural Prairie had as many as 7.2 cows per acre.

Natural Prairie’s website states: “During the warmer months, we graze our cows on acres and acres of beautiful green pastures. When it gets cold, they stay in spacious, open-air, free-stall barns that protect them from the elements.” This could not be further from the truth. According to the ARM investigator, if a cow isn’t being milked, they spend their lives in illegally overcrowded barns where they are forced to lay on cement covered in feces. Many develop footrot and cannot walk.

The farm’s gross violations of the USDA’s organic dairy certification guidelines is a crucial component of this investigation. According to the guidelines, continuous total confinement of any ruminant animal over six months of age indoors is strictly prohibited.

Throughout his time on the farm, the ARM investigator found that Natural Prairie Dairy cows well enough and willing to graze only did so for about an hour a day during the grazing months. Many others never left the barn.

Donald DeJong is the owner and CEO of Natural Prairie Dairy. Soon after ARM began this investigation, it also discovered that DeJong is the vice chairman of Select Milk Producers, and a Board of Directors member of Fairlife and he has strong personal and business associations with Mike McCloskey of Fair Oaks Farms and Fairlife.

Natural Prairie Dairy currently supplies raw dairy to Kroger, Costco, and Publix through Aurora Organic Dairy’s bottling plant in Denver, Colorado. The company is in the process of expanding its operations with construction underway in Newton County, Indiana, that will supply dairy to Meijer Grocer, the Midwest, and East Coast.

The undercover investigator was fired after management found photos of animal abuse on his cell phone. They quickly deleted the photos – to no avail. ARM investigators submitted a substantial body of evidence to the Hartley County Sheriff’s Office for review.

“Consumer power is the most effective vehicle towards creating change by raising awareness of these criminal findings,” ARM said in a statement. “Leave dairy products out of your cart.”

Prop 12 cheerleaders: why do you support laws that REQUIRE animal suffering & violent death?

May 16, 2022
by
Boe’s Story – Boar Semen Collection, Animal Liberation Queensland


The people who care about animals and the people who don’t care about animals all know about Prop 12, hailed as the USA’s “strongest farm animal protection measure … EVER … mandating bigger cages, etcetcetc.”, passed by California voters in 2018 and that is now being challenged – ofcourseofcourseofcourse – by those ever-so cowardly “pork industry execs” as being too costly, blahblahblah, and onward to SCOTUS.

Here’s the thing: if you care about animals, and even if don’t care because your opinion regarding others’ bodies, families, and lives, all of what and whom are important to THEM regardless of how meaningless they are to YOU, REQUIRES YOU LEAVE THEM TF ALONE. You don’t eat them, use them, entertain with them, or wear them, and you sure as hell DON’T celebrate laws that STILL REQUIRE THEIR SUFFERING AND VIOLENT DEATHS.

(There is no way to “humanely” kill a being who doesn’t willingly volunteer to die, and the USDA recently released 1000s of pages of “slaughter violations” – used with apostrophes because, come on, ALL slaughter is an inherent violation of a being – of torturous, neglectful, abject cruelty inflicted on animals in just the death part of the death industry.)

It’s absolutely astounding that so many of the prop 12 promoters are literally NOT waiting for this measure to be implemented (ie, enforced), the will of the voters is obviously enough because they are STILL PARTICIPATING IN ANIMAL SUFFERING AND VIOLENT DEATH, which is actually required pre and post prop 12: the absolute violent irony of people who spend 2 seconds marking a ballot in favor of a proposition that STILL REQUIRES ANIMAL SUFFERING AND VIOLENT DEATH.

So congrats! You’re still an animal abuser but now you can wear the badge of “care” because it cost you all of nothing to mark a ballot. The suffering and killed animals would be proud, but they’re all dead, still being violated and violently killed to satisfy your UNethical behaviour, prop 12 or no prop 12.

Here’s another thing: YOU CAN BE VEGAN RIGHT NOW. Why do people wait for laws to define their ethics surrounding others’ lives? The whiny, petulant voters who are screaming, “I’m happy to spend more money to ensure animals are humanely treated………………………………………………but I’m not stopping using animals in the meantime, it’s the politician’s fault, the pork people’s fault, everybody but my own fault………………………nor will I actually do the MOST humane action and be vegan.” … are relevant only in their cruel hypocrisy.

Because, really, if a larger prison is important, NOT BEING USED AND KILLED IS MORE IMPORTANT. You cannot honestly preach “protections” that still demand animals are relentlessly violated and violently killed. I mean, I’m no Webster scholar, but “protection” pretty much would be the OPPOSITE: NOT BEING FORCED TO BE EXPLOITATIVELY USED AND KILLED.

And ffs, Prop 12 doesn’t prevent cruelty, why do people keep screaming that it does? A prison is a prison no matter the size, and the ULTIMATE cruelty – violent death – is still REQUIRED for the Prop 12 animal victims.

So, yes, shake your head, swear at the tv, demand political retribution, whatever, but know this: it IS YOUR fault. You gladly support the mass suffering and unimaginable terror and pain YOU force on animals, you just stand behind postponed mandates to excuse your actions, but the “pork people” are providing cheap flesh in response to YOUR cheap flesh demand. But I’d like to know, where’s your indignation about the animals who are forced to endure YOUR verbal welfare? Where’s your anger regarding the subjugation and loss of body autonomy, separation of families, the repeated violation and required violent deaths of all animals?

If you honestly care about the passage – or rather, the implementation – of Prop 12, you’d just be vegan. Now. For the ANIMALS because the animals are denied the luxury of just leisurely hanging out, waiting for the end of the slow, ponderous march of “justice” to decide their (always violently cruel and bloody) fate. And if you’re really pissed off at the “pork people” for trying to quash your vote, you’d be vegan – or plant-based at the least, the diet portion of veganism – because THAT will piss THEM off the most giving them essentially a big fu for being bastards no matter what to humans and animals because, really, who else gets to sue and head to SCOTUS to try and overturn a legal vote??? Yup, they are one and the same. Hmmmmm.

One last note, if you’re angry that abolitionist vegans don’t support welfarist issues that only serve to comfort the species causing violent suffering, ask yourself this: what’s the difference between a nonvegan who supports prop 12 and a nonvegan who doesn’t support prop 12? SL



Five things to know about the SCOTUS challenge to California’s ban on extreme farm animal confinement

Source The Counter

By Marina Bolotnikova


The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday agreed to hear the pork industry’s challenge to California’s Proposition 12, a law that restricts certain confinement practices in industrial animal agriculture. 

The law, passed by nearly 63 percent of voters in a 2018 ballot measure, effectively bans gestation crates”—narrow, metal enclosures with slatted floors that confine pregnant sows to only sitting and standing, and restrict them from turning around. The industry argues the crates, which have been used in large-scale hog farming for more than 30 years, minimize aggression and prevent competition for food. But growing consumer concern about the wellbeing of animals we raise for food, coupled with strong opposition from animal welfare groups, has made the crates increasingly controversial.

Gestation crates have so far been banned in nine states, plus Ohio, which is slated to phase them out by 2026. In addition, California and Massachusetts have passed restrictions on the retail sale of pork that originated from animals kept in gestation-crate systems. 

It’s that additional restriction on retail sales that’s at heart of the current challenge. When SCOTUS rules on Prop 12 in its next term—sometime between December of this year and June of 2023—it will not be ruling on whether the crates themselves are inhumane, but rather on whether the costs of complying with California’s law put an unfair burden on out-of-state farmers and have a “dramatic economic effect,” according to the petition, on non-California transactions.

Here are five things you need to know about the case:


1.) We’ve been here before.

Prop 12 requires sows to have at least 24 square feet of living space; in industrial-scale operations they currently have about 14. The law also requires egg-laying hens to be housed in at least 144 square inches of living space, and veal calves to have at least 43 square feet. These standards ban industry practices that confine egg-laying hens in “battery cages” so small they can’t spread their wings and male calves raised for veal in similarly restrictive spaces. 

Because Prop 12 bans not only gestation crates, veal crates, and battery cages on California farms, but also imports of animal products raised in these conditions anywhere in the world, it’s considered one of the strongest farm animal protection laws in the U.S. and is perhaps the most frequently challenged. The pork industry has been fighting like hell to overturn it, and so far, all of its challenges have failed. 

In a case before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals last year, the National Pork Producers Council (NPPC), a pork industry lobby group, and the American Farm Bureau Federation unsuccessfully argued that Prop 12 violates the “dormant Commerce Clause” of the Constitution—a legal doctrine that bars states from enacting protectionist laws that discriminate against out-of-state businesses.

After that loss, the National Pork Producers Council took its challenge to the Supreme Court, claiming that Prop 12 would “upend an entire nationwide industry” to cater to the ethical preferences of Californians. It also argues that gestation crates don’t allow pigs to turn around “for hygiene, safety, and animal-welfare and husbandry reasons.” 


2.) The outcome isn’t a foregone conclusion.

The Supreme Court’s decision to take up a case on which there wasn’t any disagreement among lower courts likely signals a desire among some justices to strike down Prop 12. That the court decided to weigh in on the case at all was surprising to some observers. “It is something that would have been unimaginable not that long ago,” Justin Marceau, an animal law scholar at the University of Denver, said in an email. “This court seems hungry to get involved with every divisive political issue.”

But it only takes four of the justices—not a majority—to agree to hear a case, and the pork industry’s legal argument is considered weak by many legal scholars because Prop 12 applies the same standard to products raised in California as it does to those in any other state. “I think the odds are not great for Prop 12, but I wouldn’t give up at all,” said Harvard constitutional law professor Laurence Tribe. “The Supreme Court’s decisions in this area—going all the way back to the 1920s—I think strongly support California.” 

The dormant Commerce Clause on which the case hinges is complex and confusing. It isn’t explicitly written into the Constitution, but instead has been inferred in case law as a limit on states’ ability to interfere with interstate trade. The country’s top pork-producing states are Iowa, Minnesota, and North Carolina, which together make up most of the industry

The NPPC argues that California’s share of the U.S. pork industry (.12 percent, according to USDA) is extremely small, and Prop 12 would unfairly impact states from which it imports its pork.

Tribe said this doesn’t mean Prop 12 imposes an unconstitutional burden on interstate commerce. “It’s undoubtedly true that it will have most of its impact outside California, but they’re not exempting California,” he said. “Even though the industry is smaller in California, it’s not insignificant, and it has to comply with these rules just as fully as [producers] in Iowa and elsewhere do.” 

The Ninth Circuit Court’s ruling in favor of Prop 12 similarly reasoned: “A state law may require out-of-state producers to meet burdensome requirements in order to sell their products in the state without violating the dormant Commerce Clause.” 

Clarence Thomas, one of the court’s Republican-appointed justices, has expressed skepticism that the dormant Commerce Clause even exists, Tribe said. “That’s, in a sense, the most conservative originalist view. And it may be that on the current court, only Justice Thomas has that view, but it will certainly influence at least to some extent the way the other conservatives look at this, so that there could be a very powerful conservative as well as liberal argument in support of Prop 12.” 


3.) You should look up the definition of “extraterritoriality.”

Yes, it’s a mouthful. But whether or not the court decides that Prop 12 passes muster will likely come down to the value of that one word, and whether the justices believe that ethical concerns of a state outweigh, as the petition puts it, “the wrenching effect of the law on interstate commerce.” 

“There’s very little basis for invalidating California’s Prop 12 unless one takes the view that the state’s moral concerns for the abuse of animals somehow count less than the kinds of economic concerns that in the past have been used to justify state regulations with nationwide impact like this one,” Tribe said. “Pigs are at least as smart as dogs, and anyway smartness shouldn’t have anything to do with it. They can suffer.” 

“If California decides that intelligent mammals like pigs that can suffer are worthy of moral concern, then California should be allowed to protect their interests. But at least some justices might be insensitive to that and might say, ‘who cares about animals?’ And if they do, that would be an example of a form of judicial activism that conservatives and liberals alike ought to find inappropriate.” 

“Given that a strong case can (and will through amicus briefs) be made that animal welfare is an extremely substantial interest, it would seem under existing law that the law would be upheld,” Marceau from the University of Denver said. But that’s if the court adheres to the established doctrine on interstate commerce, which he called “a big if.” 


4.) Big interests will be represented by Big Law.

One underexamined dimension of the Prop 12 litigation is legal institutions’ (including the Supreme Court’s) ongoing bias toward business interests. The NPPC’s case is being argued by attorneys from the corporate law firm Mayer Brown, which has represented clients like the tobacco conglomerate Altria Group and Cargill, Inc. in a lawsuit alleging child-labor abuses in the global food company’s cocoa supply chain. 

The attorney of record in the Prop 12 case, Timothy Bishop, “is advertised by Mayer Brown as being a top appellate lawyer in environmental law,” said Oren Nimni, litigation director at Rights Behind Bars and a well-known critic of big law. “When you see someone who’s an expert in environmental law at a firm like Mayer Brown, a giant corporate firm, that means that they are an expert in destroying the environment.” Bishop didn’t return a request for comment for this story. 

“There’s essentially universal neoliberal consensus in the legal field that there can be no judgment for that type of representation,” Nimni said, and the Supreme Court likewise favors commercial interests. Whatever the merits of the pork industry’s lawsuit, or lack thereof, he added, “it really doesn’t matter because there’s universal consensus in favor of corporate rights on the Supreme Court.” 

The Cato Institute, a libertarian think tank, also filed a friend-of-the-court brief in favor of NPPC, arguing that “there is already ample evidence of Prop 12’s onerous economic burdens on the pork industry” and that “preventing animal cruelty nationwide is not a legitimate state interest.”


5.) SCOTUS heat could chill local efforts.

Invalidating Prop 12 “would cast quite a shadow on perfectly reasonable state regulations, both in favor of animal welfare and various environmental concerns,” Tribe said. “It’s very hard to come up with a principle that would make the burden on interstate commerce in this case excessive but that wouldn’t invalidate all kinds of other rules as well.”  

The environmental impact of Prop 12 itself would likely be minor because its additional space requirements are minimal, so it wouldn’t impose enough additional costs on pork production to substantially scale down industrial animal agriculture, said Silvia Secchi, a natural resource economist at the University of Iowa, in an email. But the Supreme Court’s decision could have indirect implications for state environmental regulations. “California leads the nation on climate change via, for example, the CAFE standards carve-out,” Secchi said. “This might signal a willingness to re-litigate these issues.”

The only way to mitigate agriculture’s environmental footprint, Secchi added, is to reduce overall meat consumption with policies stronger than Prop 12. “Prices of livestock WOULD be higher and more in line with their environmental impacts, but we would have plenty of other food available and affordable,” she said. “If all this squealing (sorry could not resist) about pretty minor changes to livestock production practices causes all this legal chaos, you can see how hard to do more is going to be.” 

Ultimately, especially with so much recent turnover on the Supreme Court, all bets on Prop 12’s fate are off. “It is beyond tea leaf reading to guess how this case comes out,” Marceau said. “The idea that one can accurately predict how these new justices will respond to a set of technical commerce clause issues would be the height of legal-prediction hubris.”

We need more sane and sensible

This Harvard fellow is calling out the factory farm industry’s playbook for handling reports about animal abuse

May 9, 2022
by

Source NowThis YouTube , Jan Dutkiewicz

It was my pleasure to guide @nowthisnews through the animal agriculture industry’s playbook for addressing footage of animal abuse.

@jan_dutkiewicz



If anag execs and farmers weren’t so deceptively abusive and inherently unethical, they’d just be laughable. To them, one “militant” vegan, as defined because a vegan provides industry data from anag sources, is representive of all vegans, but one (or-two-or-fifty-or-onemillion) abusive animal farmer or employee is an anomaly, a rare exception to the rule (ah, the willfully ignorant masses always forget the animals they use and consume are … dead. They’re all … dead, not certain how anyone can pretend that being violently killed after a brief existence of suffering and forced body intrusion, DOESN’T represent the ENTIRE anag industry).

And by the way, even if there is just ONE case (not trillions), it would still be proof that the industry is flawed, there’s no way around that, it’s evil, masked as happy-dancy cows going to school. SL

the lavender lizard was once dull,sad and grey
but then he chased the nasties
away
… he decided to like just
who he pleased
no matter what he was taught
at his elders knees
and with his new friendships
he walked towards the sun
sharing his kindness
with most everyone

be kind, practice tolerance, embrace difference…the world will be a much better, happier place☺♥☻ 

Mental health awareness month

May 2, 2022

Mental illness is not an indictment. Mental illness is neither judgement nor judgement call. Mental illness is pain…crippling, life altering, life stealing pain. Mental illness takes no prisoners but those who suffer are its prisoners. 

Mental illness is illness. 

Please see it as such.

Help if you can.
