Indiana – Home of the Puritan Bigots

So Governor Pence of Indiana signed the bill into law that permits prejudice against gays. Of course this law overrides other local ordinances that prohibit discrimination against customers based on their sexual orientation. But I’m sure Big Daddy Pence knows what’s best for all those good folks in Indiana. He will protect them from all those LGBT’s that are just waiting to pounce on Indiana’s puritanical  husbands, wives, and children.

However, he did miss a very important step in the new pro-prejudice law – how do we identify them as LGBT?  So, he will obviously need to amend the law and add that all LGBT’s living in Indiana will have to get a “666” tattoo on their forehead for identification purposes. Those LGBT’s just visiting or traveling through Indiana can go to the nearest Police station and get a temporary “666 stamp” on their forehead. Oh, and then he would need to ban any type of hats or scarves that might hide the tattoo. Oh, and then there would have to be an amendment defining the punishment for not identifying themselves as LGBT.  You get the point.

Thank you Governor Pence for moving Indiana back to the 1950’s, or possibly the 1300’s with this disgusting new law of yours. I lived in Indiana for a few years and I know this is not the voice of the people speaking. This is voice of a few powerful bigots that deserve a big red tattoo on their forehead stating “BIGOT.”

 

10 Things To Know Before You Eat Your Next Chicken

We have all seen or heard already about all the bad things that are used to grow beef and the downside to eating it.  My family stopped eating red meat several years ago, with the exception of a What-a-Burger every now and then.  However, we are avid chicken eaters. This re-post of an article from Fusion.net will open your eyes to the new world of Factory Farms that feed Americans 9 billion chickens a year.

NO CHICKEN YOU EAT WAS EVER RAISED IN A CAGE.

What?! But you’ve seen “cage-free” plenty of times! Google it. The only chickens raised in cages in the U.S. are the ones that lay eggs. When you see the words “cage-free” on a label it doesn’t actually mean anything. Companies put it there, but really, none of the chickens were ever in a cage.

BUT MOST OF THEM ARE RAISED IN BARNS WITH 30,000 OF THEIR FEATHERED FRIENDS.

Craig’s barn is a sea of 30,000 birds filled with litter, feces and dusty feathers. When the chicks are fully grown, they have a space equivalent to a sheet of paper to walk around. The burning smell of ammonia is very common.
