As if I Needed One More Thing to Feel Guilty About….
So, today, Oprah does a piece on free range animals, and the more traditionally raised animals…you know…teeny cages, little movement, smelly barns. She shares an “in depth” look at each of these types of farms, and then tells us that she is not telling us how we should think, she is simply trying to “educate” us so we can make a choice based on our own values.
So in other words, “If you think it’s okay to mistreat animals, keeping them in little crates where they can’t move, getting diseases cause they sit in their own feces, then you keep right on eating that cheap ol’ meat. But if you have one teensy little humane bone in your body, you’ll do the right thing and spend a few more of those pennies you don’t have to buy the right meat, thereby saving the animal world from these cruel and unusual punishments.”
Crap. Now I have to read labels…
Kanniduba…saving the world one little free range ham at a time.
