it's amazing how many people i meet who still think chickens on farms are allowed to run free in the farmyard and are fed daily by the farmer's wife who throws them feed as the chickens happily run around her feet. even small family farms are in reality a terrible place for animals.

Sadly, agribusiness is destroying the land and the animals. Even the so called "cage free" ads are misleading as the chickens are crammed into tight coops. Free Range is also used freely and if the farm providing is a large one, then the product is probably not truly free ranging hens.

Your statement used to be true once Bill. I don't eat anything that comes out of a factory farm. Remember what the Jesuit said? Give me the child and I will show you the man. That kind of parallels what old Rothschild said about not caring who made the laws as long as he controlled the purse strings of the nation.

What creepy, nasty, ugly, vicious lies can do to innocent animals. And they use children to promote all of it! Shared on FB.

McDonald's used to do the same thing by telling kids that hamburgers grew in vegetable patches. They're out to hook new customers while they are young--just like the tobacco industry. It's all about profit with these thugs. Animals and the environment be damned.

Ever pass a chicken truck on the freeway? Or worse, be stuck next to one in bumper-to-bumper traffic? For me, this is a heart-wrenching experience. I'm a vegetarian. I am deeply and personally disturbed by animal cruelty. I feel powerless. I want to do something, but I don't know what. I avoid fast food and have structured my lifestyle in a non-cruel way, but mostly, I am just sad that the food industry is so brutal when it doesn't have to be.

"Chick-fil-A, like most fast-food companies, is the retail expression of the factory farming industry — an industry whose hideous treatment of animals, vertical integration and rooting in monoculture is the opposite of the diversified family farm so beautifully glorified in “The Jolly Barnyard.” Perhaps worse, as a primary buyer — and, thus financial supporter — of the factory-farmed products, Chick-fil-A is one of the major fast-food players responsible for the demise of “Jolly Barnyard”-esque family farms.

But rather than own up to its record with a children’s book about its odious business model, Chick-Fil-A (not surprisingly) wants kids to think of it through a much more pleasant story."
==================
CfA has resurrected a popular children's book from the '50's and re-published it with their name prominently on the cover. Smart advertising!
Next they might put out a cute l'il book about how to bully the Gay kid in your neighborhood...

SICK-fil-A has, thru its non-profit arm, given MILLIONS OF DOLLARS from its profits, to organizations that, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, are HATE GROUPS...
such as, for example, the "kill-the-gays" groups {American anti-Gay evangelicals!}, that are behind that bigoted legislative effort in Uganda...
So, every time you buy a CfA sandwich, you are DIRECTLY GIVING YOUR MONEY TO DESTROYING HUMAN RIGHTS AND HUMAN LIVES. That, BESIDES the Farm Animals and Family Farms and Farmers...

How come America bans/wants to ban so many books but missdirection isn't one of the criterias?
