If you can vote in CA, please vote yes on prop 2.
Oprah did a piece on factory farming today. They showed the battery cages. They also showed a cage free farm, but I wish that they had clarified that not all cage free farms are outside where the chicken can free range. I guess it makes sense because they had to really simplify the issue for people that are seeing this for the first time.
They also showed a pig farm and a calf farm - both factory and free range. They really live in horrible conditions and the people running these farms really have brainwashed themselves into thinking the animals are ok w/ it. You could see a totally different attitude / vibe from the free range farmers vs. the factory farmers.
Wayne Pacelle from HSUS was on the show. Wayne Pacelle, you rock!
Oprah was awesome because at the end of the show she said that she hopes people will become more conscious about their food. She also pointed out that CA voters will have prop 2 on their ballot and the rest of us can vote at the grocery store. She did this in a way that wasn't judgmental. This is a pretty groundbreaking moment having this issue air on national TV. For most of America, this is the first time hearing about it. A lot of other people may have heard bits and pieces about it, but it is now harder to pass off as BS or propaganda since it was coming from Oprah.
