Hogwash? Have Things Gotten Out of Control?

I happened on this story by clicking a wrong link. Myself, I don't eat pork as it isn't kosher, but there are many people who love the smell of bacon in the morning.

The fine points of this issue are beyond me, but here are two videos to give you some background, and you can follow the links below for more information. Don't ask why I am posting this, it just seems like a good thing to do...

Apparently "mass producers" who raise pigs under horrific conditions (see video) are trying to put "humane" home based pork farmers out of business. It sounds horrible. One has to ask just where the PETA people are when you need them.

What I find particularly ugly about this story is that people are going to loose their livelihood. With all the financial woes in America and the world, is it good policy to put family businesses out of work? Just what is a farmer supposed to do to support his family if he can't farm?

You can get full information at Bakers Green Acres. They have a blog to keep people informed as well as a petition that anyone can sign. Maybe it is time all the "little people" start standing together to protect the things that are important, like family, small businesses, farms...
