Why did the chicken cross the road?

  I did not not write this.... It was sent to me from a friend...

This is only my opinion but I think it was to get to the other side. However I could be wrong so don't hold me to that...
Subject: Why did the chicken cross the road?

Barack Obama: "Let me be perfectly  clear: if the chickens like their eggs, they can keep their eggs. No chicken  will be required to cross the road to surrender her eggs. Period."  
John McCain: "My friends, the chicken  crossed the road because he recognized the need to engage in cooperation and  dialogue with all the chickens on the other side of the road."
Hillary Clinton: "What difference, at  this point, does it make why the chicken crossed the road?"
George W. Bush: "We don't really care  why the chicken crossed the road.  We just want to know if the chicken is  on our side of the road or not. The chicken is either with us or against us. "  
Dick Cheney: "Where's my gun?"  
Colin Powell: "Now, to the left of the  screen, you can clearly see the satellite image of the chicken crossing the  road."
Bill Clinton: "I did not cross the  road with that chicken."
Al Gore: "I invented the chicken."  
John Kerry: "Although I voted to let  the chicken cross the road, I am now against it! It was the wrong road to  cross, and I was misled about the chicken's intentions. I am not for it now,  and I will remain against it."
Al Sharpton: "Why are all the chickens  white?"
Dr. Phil: "The problem we have here is  that this chicken won't realize that he must first deal with the problem on  this side of the road before he goes after the problem on the other side of  the road. What we need to do is help him realize how stupid he is acting by  not taking on his current problems before adding any new problems."  
Oprah: "Well, I understand that the  chicken is having problems, which is why he wants to cross the road so badly.  So instead of having the chicken learn from his mistakes and take falls, which  is a part of life, I'm going to give this chicken a NEW CAR so that he can  just drive across the road and not live his life like the rest of the  chickens."
Anderson  Cooper: "We have reason  to believe there is a chicken, but we have not yet been allowed to have access  to the other side of the road."
Nancy Grace: "That chicken crossed the  road because he's guilty! You can see it in his eyes and the way he walks."  
Pat Buchanan: "To steal the job of a  decent, hardworking American."
Martha Stewart: "No one called me to  warn me which way the chicken was going. I had a standing order at the  farmer's market to sell my eggs when the price dropped to a certain level. No  little bird gave me any insider information."
Dr. Seuss: "Did the chicken cross the  road? Did he cross it with a toad? Yes, the chicken crossed the road, but why  it crossed I've not been told."
Ernest Hemingway: "To die in the rain,  alone."
Grandpa: "In my day, we didn't ask why  the chicken crossed the road. Somebody told us the chicken crossed the road,  and that was good enough for us."
Barbara Walters: "Isn't that  interesting? In a few moments, we will be listening to the chicken tell, for  the first time, the heartwarming story of how it experienced a serious case of  molting and went on to accomplish its lifelong dream of crossing the road."  
Aristotle: "It is the nature of  chickens to cross the road."
John Lennon: "Imagine all the chickens  in the world crossing roads together, in peace."
Bill Gates: "I have just released  eChicken2014, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents, and balance your checkbook. Internet Explorer is an  integral part of eChicken2014. This new platform is much more stable and will  never reboot."
Albert Einstein: "Did the chicken  really cross the road, or did the road move beneath the chicken?"
Colonel Sanders: "Did I miss one?"

"Television Withdrawls"

If you remember a while ago I said I was going to stop watching television and those brain washing ads and commercials. It was more of a commitment than anything else. For those of you that don’t what that is…A commitment is saying you are going to do something then actually doing it…Well, its been lots of days and I haven’t turned on my TV…Not for a minute not for a second…In fact I don’t even know if it still works…The bottom line here I have been commercial free for almost 3 years…Three years of no morons trying to beg, trick or tell me I need something I don’t want nor would I even consider buying. Here is what is going on now and I kid you not…
       I think I am having curiosity withdrawals from not watching…This includes a slight anger over nothing and a tiny voice in my mind telling me its OK to watch for a little while. However, I don‘t!  I will not subject myself to insanity of the news today or even the weather…OK, here is my alternative…My hand held computer (phone) for the weather if I need it…Living a mile away from the ocean its necessary. I still see all the TV shows and movies, I mean (all) the shows new or old commercial free! I'm not saying where so you guess where?  I do this on a Sony 40 inch High Definition TV monitor... One word describes this. WOW!...
       This little anger thing that is going on will pass and soon I won’t even think about the hot weather or traffic girl. Yes, the Bastards will still do anything to get you to watch! You have heard of a target audience haven’t you? Well I’m not a target or a consumer for anybody and if I choose to be a customer I will.  I have no interest in who kills their wife, grandmother or kids, no interest in college basketball and their highly overpaid egotistical coaches. No interest in what is on sale…Actually they just jack up the prices 50% then give the morons a 25% discount. I surprised you don’t know that… My theory is that if I don’t know what is going on, it won’t bother me… Now I choose, what I watch, when I watch it and how I watch it. Yes, I post my Blog and Twitter with news that I choose by getting EM alerts to certain new or on going stories or people or things that I consider interesting. I will not allow them to poison my mind with the insane things they want show me… See what I mean, there is a little anger between those lines? Please bare with me, it will pass.

Future News from 2061

I used a little bit of my imagination in this piece. The sick part of this is the way things are going these days and big business keeps controlling our country it could happen. ... I'm glad I won't be here and I feel sorry for those of you that are.. 

 President Malia Obama in her news conference today announced today that the new steroid growth hormone for live stock has passed the rigorous testing by the FDA. From now on all livestock will be given this chemical twice a day and will grow faster and produce more meat. She said, "now the slaughter houses will be able to keep up with the demand at the fast food restaurants". Livestock will be slaughtered each day instead of every six months. The President said it is harmless to humans but would not comment on the millions of overweight people and heart attacks in the country. Meanwhile all local Walmart stores have starting stocking rotund sizes for children ages 6 to 12.
          She also announced that Walmart is the only store left in this country. She congratulated Walmart executives for manipulating and driving all other stores out of business commenting, "with no competition they can charge anything they want". The only stores left are a few drug and gas convenience stores. She said our foreign friends need to have a place to own and work.. Meanwhile Walmart employees will be taking a pay cut because there in no other place to work... 
       The President also announced today that effective immediately the new country wide posted State highway speed will be 150 mph. Back roads speeds will be increased from 30 to 90 mph. Effective immediately. Because of over population and driver licenses being issued to all illegal immigrants driving will only be permitted on odd or even days. Your license plate number will be used to determine if its your day to drive. If caught driving on the wrong day a one year mandatory jail sentence and a $10,000 dollar fine will be issued. Drones will be flying over highways and cameras installed on the highways and roads will issue the fine to be sent in your mail. The computer that runs your car will shut off automatically and the car will stall. Towing charges by the State and Government will be $5000.  
       Also in the news… When starting the new school year it will be mandatory for children ages 5 to 18 to wear a bullet proof vest when entering school property. The bullet proof vest sale starts at Walmart this weekend. Also as an after thought she said no one will be able to enter a Shopping Mall or Super Market without body armor. Store security will start strip searching people before entering any store. This is including movie theaters and churches. The President said, “Your safety comes first.” 
       In 3 days it will be legal to buy Cocaine without a prescription. It will be sold in Walmart and all drug, convenience stores. Congress said the taxes selling this will help paying our $931 Quadrillion dollar debt. They said if everything goes well it should be paid off in 300 years if there are no wars…
     Update......Because of the increase in the minimum wage to $34.61 an hour all fast food hamburgers will go up to $99.99 each. The price of fries will go to $55.99 for a small bag.
     Gas prices in America increased today to $1061.73 per barrel making the price per gallon of gas raise to $397.99 per gallon. 
      As a side note she also said effective immediately the new Federal retirement age for Social Security will be 80 years old. Senators and Congress will still be able to retire after 1 term with full pay, lifetime benefits and full medical.

Mexican Drug Lord

I heard there was a Drug Epidemic here in the United States and the drugs came from Mexico. I was just wondering if any of our so-called leaders ( President, politicians ) really care. This freak of nature seems to have more money than God. Who was he paying off? How much aid to we send to those Bastards down there? How much did he make while family's suffered and kids became addicted and died.

A Mexican Drug Lord’s Home Was Raided. It’s Even More Incredible And Horrifying Than I Ever Could Have Imagined.

There was a matched pair of these found.

.357 Magnum semi-automatics with solid gold grips.

This guy had a better gun collection than most legitimate museums do.

Just a quaint little villa in the hills – Drug money bought it all!

Man-made cave and hot tub inside the home.

A collection of exotic animals – which were cared for in the grandest fashion, by the way.

8 Lions were on the property.

A very rare Tiger.

The back yard pool.

Exotic art collection – some of which was illegal to own – some stolen.

  More guns than you could ever imagine!

This pile of cash before it was counted was estimated to be approximately 18 Billion Dollars!

After it was counted it turned out to be a little more than 22 Billion Dollars!

From another angle.

Guns were hidden all over the house, along with ample ammo, just in case of trouble.

Stacks of cash were found in every nook and cranny…

This case is filled with 100 dollar Bills estimated to be 1/2 a million dollars and no doubt headed out to make another drug deal with perhaps the Columbians.

18 plastic bins filled with 100 dollar bills were found…

Another cabinet stacked tight with cash – all 100′s.

More 100′s.

Each of these stacks of 100′s holds USD 250,000 (a quarter of a million US dollars)! They also had millions in Columbian money and Mexican Pesos, although they preferred American dollars for the most part.

There were even stacks of Chinese Yuan found in one closet.

More Gold machine guns and pistols – most were never fired, just held for collection value.

The money and valuables found in this one house alone, would be enough to pay for health insurance for every man woman and child in the USA for 12 years! There is estimated to be approximately 27 more of these houses in Mexico alone. Not to mention the ones in other countries who are enriching themselves in the drug trade. These people have so much money, they make the Arab oil sheiks look like welfare recipients. Their money can buy politicians, cops, judges, etc. Whatever they need they just throw down stacks of cash and it is theirs! This is why the drug problem is so difficult to fight.

"Reminders, Quotes, Opinions and Comments"

Written on....... Aug. 8th, 2012 edited on 3/17/2014 at 4:26 PM EST

Reminder….. No matter what you think or how good you think they are. Reality shows are not real…

Quote…… From the blond girl on Glee…“Did you know Dolphins are just gay Sharks“?…

Opinion..... The United States is somewhere around $13 Trillion dollars in debt and I had no part in doing any of that. None of that is my responsibility and I will not contribute to paying any of it back……..

Comment……In the United States its all about want because no one really needs anything….

Comment.... "When the Student is Ready, the Teacher Will Appear”

Comment...... "I feel like a long tail cat in a room full of rocking chairs"

Reminder.......If you are unfortunate enough to have to buy a used car or truck always ask when it had its last a brake job and look at the date and receipt ..These days a brake job cost a $1000 dollars or more...

Question.......Are Muslim woman allowed to shave their legs and under their arms?

Comment......Remember when there were just clothes for the extra tall or for large people? Well, now they are making clothes to fit rotund people…

Comment.......I have some good news….....Wait, I’ve got think of something…....Sorry, there is no good news.

Comment...... I almost don’t know what to say? We are surrounded by villains. Everywhere we go we don’t know if we are going to make it home…I know its always been like this but now its worse than I have ever seen it.....Its not me....Its just not safe out there.

Long Comment...... The way societies are divided now. Its like we are living life in this order… The rich and poor…The rich, who seem like they are totally oblivious to your problems and drive around in their new luxury cars and the poor who barely scrape along on with a junky car a menial job and welfare or no job at all. Its like there is no middle class. The rich who fly around in their corporate jets and the poor, if they lucky enough to get a loan have enough money to be almost stripped searched before they get on a expensive crowded passenger jet. In a sense there are no slaves but the rich who are catered to and waited on and the people who do it. No, they are not called “Slaves” but think about it?

        Are you trying to insult me because I said be careful and to think before getting involved in this kind sex? Do you jump in bed with strangers or people you barely know on a whim or fantasy? Are the cameras running when you do this? Are you promiscuous? The question is, why are you being threatening and oppositional? Do you have guilty conscience? Did something happen?

Comment..... I’d like to keep all my memories…The happy ones are like personal treasures that I look back on with pleasure. The bad memories fade away but they are mostly the mistakes I made getting the good ones…

Comment......Do you remember talk show host Mort Downey Jr.? …He temped fate by smoking and bragging about it…He died in 2001 of lung Cancer at age 68.

Comment.......I don’t know what’s going on but in the past week I’ve heard someone say, “Life has an expiration date” three different times. Now, that’s weird. Is that a warning sign?

Quote........“Self righteous anger can be very enjoyable. In a perverse way we can actually take satisfaction from the fact many people annoy us, for it brings a comfortable feeling of superiority. Gossip barbed with anger, a polite form of murder by character assassination, has its satisfactions for us. We are not trying to help those we criticize. We are trying proclaim our righteousness.”……. William Wilson

Comment........My Mom was a wonderful cook and made the best meals year round but the most special to me was made by my Grandmother. When I was very young, every Christmas the whole family would gather at her house on Grove St. in Windsor Locks Connecticut for her home made Raviolis. It was a feast with chicken and potatoes and all the Christmas trimmings… I think of my Mom all the time but going to my Grandmothers was the best…...I think about it every Christmas. Its one of my most treasured memories....

The Things I've Said & a Few Quotes

There are times people ask me questions. These are just some of the answers...

 Addiction ... There is no “Cure” for addiction. Once you stop using drugs or alcohol you cannot start again. If you do it will be like you never stopped and it will get worst. The progression of the addiction disease never stops. Total abstinence for the rest of your life is the only way to get better. Addiction is a disease like Cancer, or Sugar Diabetes. There is no cure.
NSA ... The only solution is a neat little bar code or a GPS implant somewhere on your body… They have them on dogs and cats why not on humans? It just makes sense…. Cashier Amy in Walmart wasn’t shocked and she actually thought I was serious when I told her Walmart was going to put a bar-code on her neck to be able find her...To her the idea was just one of those things that will happen sooner or later and acceptable……How do you know there isn’t some kind of locator on your body right now? A microscopic pin point GPS that can hear and find you ……. Wait, there is and you carry it wherever you go ... its called a cell phone ….. Wait again, the reason the Government doesn’t care how many people there are in this country is…What’s the first thing they buy when they get to this country? A cell phone … Wow …. I could be on to something……………..

On Chem trails ... I believe something is going on...But If you can get a picture of the smoke coming from a jet engine at say 50 or 60,000 feet you can hang around an airport long enough to get a shot of (more than one) truck being loaded with, not fuel but chemicals. I'd like to see that. If I wanted to get picture I would follow the tanker (any oil or aviation fuel tanker truck) to see where he goes. I would even be persistent enough to get a sample?

If I have learned anything from this relatively short life span we have, its two things. Choices and Burning Bridges. Always leave a little room for negotiation.   L.J. Ferrari

Fast food ... Did you tell them what was in that hamburger? Its not exactly beef. Maybe a little beef chemical flavor but don't forget they grind up every part of the cow. Private parts, brains tongues and God only knows what else. Keep in mind they don't waste anything. You could mention that they bleach wash that meat and add chemicals, growth hormones and steroids. Mention the torture and pain of a slaughter house. Yes, whether a creature was grown for food or not. It can feel pain...They know when they are going to be killed. Did you ever hear a pig scream?

Drugs ... We have entire generations of kids on psych drugs, Adderall, Ritalin, and the list keeps growing. I am convinced that there's a significant test and correlation between these drugs and so many of the episodes we have seen over the years. It's too easy to prescribe these ADD drugs and diagnose every undisciplined kid as having a deficit or learning disorder. Instead of good discipline and parenting, we reach for the Med X.

Some of my favorite words and sentences.

"C'est Si Bon"


What happened to Abracadabra?

"Lucy, I think you've got some 'splainin' to do."

That's so cute and very (apropos). I have never used the word "apropos" in a sentence.

Line from the movie "Out of the Furnace". ... "Church ain't over till all the snakes are back in the bag."

 She's FFF, that is why she looks like she does ... FFF means "Fast Food Fat"

Fast food again ... That was years ago and now with the way they mass produce chicken, cattle and pigs and the way they slaughter them I will never eat meat again. The Beef and Pigs are injected with growth hormones to mass produce them. The same thing with Chickens. They are locked in small cage's suffering and crying used only for their eggs and then slaughtered for fast food nuggets. Believe me they mince and feed you everything on that chicken including the fat and skin. It’s the same with fish. The oceans are poisoned with Mercury. Remember the Mercury warnings? They don’t tell you that anymore. Its worse now. Now its oil, radiation and what ever else they dump in the ocean. Don’t you ever believe that they care because they don’t. Its all about their profit margin. Remember when you could trust the producers of food. Well don’t! Look at all the over weight people from eating McDonald’s, Burger King, Kentucky Fried Chicken and Wendy’s limping around this country. Believe me, No one cares!

Question ... Why aren't there anymore coupons in the mail?

On police presence .... Did you notice there are no cops around anymore? OK, maybe a few traffic cops but on streets downtown and in buildings? Where did they all go?

Answer ... They are watching you on security cameras from places you wouldn't believe..

P.S ... 3/11/2014 ... Fox news from New York reported that McDonald's stock was down this morning. That is the best news I've heard in a long time. Maybe some lives will be saved..

Rainbow Bridge

A friend sent this to me ... The writer is unknown and it appeared sometime between 1980 and 1992... 

Unlike most days at Rainbow Bridge, this day dawned cold and grey, damp as a swamp and as dismal as could be imagined. All the recent arrivals were confused and concerned. They had no... idea what to think for they had never experienced a day like this before. But the animals who had spent some time waiting for their beloved people knew exactly what was happening and began to gather at the pathway leading to the Bridge to watch. They knew this was something special.

It wasn't too long before an elderly animal came into view, head hung heavy and low with tail dragging along the ground. The other animals on the pathway...the ones who had been at Rainbow Bridge for a while...knew the story of this sad creature immediately. They had seen it happen far too many times.

Although it was obvious the animal's heart was leaden and he was totally overcome with emotional pain and hurt, there was no sign of injury or any illness. Unlike the pets waiting at the Bridge, this dog had not been restored to his prime. He was full of neither health nor vigor. He approached slowly and painfully, watching all the pets who were by now watching him. He knew he was out of place here. This was no resting place for him. He felt instinctively that the sooner he could cross over, the happier he would be. But alas, as he came closer to the Bridge, his way was barred by the appearance of an Angel who spoke softly to the old dog and apologized sorrowfully, telling him that he would not be able to pass. Only those animals who were with their special people could pass over the Rainbow Bridge. And he had no special beloved people...not here at the Bridge nor on Earth below.

With no place else to turn, the poor elderly dog looked toward the fields before the Bridge. There, in a separate area nearby, he spotted a group of other sad-eyed animals like himself...elderly and infirm. Unlike the pets waiting for their special people, these animals weren't playing, but simply lying on the green grass, forlornly and miserably staring out at the pathway leading to the Bridge. The recent arrival knew he had no choice but to join them. And so, he took his place among them, just watching the pathway and waiting.

One of the newest arrivals at the Bridge, who was waiting for his special people, could not understand what he had just witnessed and asked one of the pets who had been there for some time to explain it to him.

"That poor dog was a rescue, sent to the pound when his owner grew tired of him. The way you see him now, with greying fur and sad, cloudy eyes, was exactly the way he was when he was put into the kennels. He never, ever made it out and passed on only with the love and comfort that the kennel workers could give him as he left his miserable and unloved existence on Earth for good. Because he had no family or special person to give his love, he has nobody to escort him across the Bridge."

The first animal thought about this for a minute and then asked, "So what will happen now?"

As he was about to receive his answer, the clouds suddenly parted and the all-invasive gloom lifted. Coming toward the Bridge could be seen a single figure...a person who, on Earth, had seemed quite ordinary...a person who, just like the elderly dog, had just left Earth forever. This figure turned toward a group of the sad animals and extended outstretched palms. The sweetest sounds they had ever heard echoed gently above them and all were bathed in a pure and golden light. Instantly, each was young and healthy again, just as they had been in the prime of life.

From within the gathering of pets waiting for their special people, a group of animals emerged and moved toward the pathway. As they came close to the passing figure, each bowed low and each received a tender pat on the head or a scratch behind the ears. Their eyes grew even brighter as the figure softly murmured each name. Then, the newly-restored pets fell into line behind the figure and quietly followed this person to the Bridge, where they all crossed together.

The recent arrival who had been watching, was amazed. "What happened?"

"That was a rescuer," came the answer.

"That person spent a lifetime trying to help pets of all kinds. The ones you saw bowing in respect were those who found new homes because of such unselfish work. They will cross when their families arrive. Those you saw restored were ones who never found homes. When a rescuer arrives, they are permitted to perform one, final act of rescue. They are allowed to escort those poor pets that couldn't place on Earth across the Rainbow Bridge. You see, all animals are special to them...just as they are special to all animals."

"I think I like rescuers," said the recent arrival.

"So does God," was the reply.

Do you remember Bob Hope? You'll enjoy this.

 Sent to me by a good friend....Enjoy..
On his death bed they asked him where he wanted to be buried and he said. "Surprise me."
Enjoy. Do you remember Bob Hope? You'll enjoy this.
I had forgotten that he lived to be 100, and also didn't realize it has been over  10 years since he died. I always enjoyed him, his movies, and his show. He touched a lot of lives during his life. Especially the servicemen he entertained during WWII, the Korean War, even after.   Perhaps this will bring back some good memories. 
For those of you too young to remember Bob Hope, ask your Grandparents and thanks for the memories. WHAT A WONDERFUL E-MAIL.
I HOPE THIS WILL PUT A SMILE ON YOUR FACE AND IN YOUR HEART. This is a tribute to a man who DID make a difference.
'I still chase women, but only downhill.'


'That's the time of your life when even your birthday suit needs pressing.'


'You know you're getting old when the candles cost more than the cake.'


'I don't feel old. In fact,
I don't feel anything until noon. Then it's time for my nap.'


'I ruined my hands in the ring. The referee kept stepping on them.'


'Welcome to the Academy Awards, or, as it's called at my home, 'Passover.'


'Golf is my profession. Show business is just to pay the green fees.'


'I have performed for 12 presidents but entertained only six.'
'When I was born, the doctor said to my mother,
Congratulations, you have an eight pound ham.'

'I feel very humble, but I think I have the strength of character to fight it.'


'Four of us slept in the one bed. When it got cold, mother threw on another brother.'


'That's how I learned to dance. Waiting for the bathroom.'


'I would not have had anything to eat if it wasn't for the stuff the audience threw at me.'


'I've done benefits for ALL religions. I'd hate to blow the hereafter on a technicality.'
Give me a sense of humor Lord, give me the grace to see a joke,
To get some humor out of life, and pass it on to other folk.
To the person receiving this, the grace to pass it on to others.


Hot Dogs

                    As public service I have to post this...

Saturday, March 1, 2014


 Updated today 2/7/2016

Well, its been 3 years and I'm still a Vegetarian. I never thought I could do it but once I make up my mind to do something I usually do. The benefits are, I'm getting slimmer around the waist and I feel much better physically. Its taking too much time to lose the weight (like I want everything done yesterday) but my stomach is really disappearing and I'm not as tired. I have lost a few pounds of fat around my waist line. (34 inch waist line now) I do not miss eating meat. They make all sorts veggie burgers and food for us. Its a big market and getting bigger.
        When I was very young I asked my Dad what was in a hot dog? He was a part time butcher at the A and P (Atlantic and Pacific Tea Company) supermarket before it was called a supermarket. It was more of a neighborhood market on our street. I remember walking to the store when I was very young by myself, when the streets were safe to see what and how he did the meat. I remember thinking that. “How he did the meat” At the time you could eat meat safely because it was just meat. It wasn't injected with steroids, hormones and chemicals and the livestock wasn’t fed tainted grain. It was a time when they butchered the cows and pigs with a reasonable semblance of dignity, if there is such a thing. I said, and I don't know why? When I was very young I was painfully curious like most kids are. The "How comes" and "Whys" were part of my vocabulary. I said and I remember saying this , "Dad what's in a hot dog"? He said, after a moments hesitation he said, "Lorenzo, they put anything and everything they can sell on a cow". (Now I realize what that is.) He went on to say, "They don't waste anything". I said, Oh, but how do they make them? How come it looks like that? Pointing at them in the from behind the counter in the show case. I was so short I could barely see over that wooden cutting board into the show case behind the counter. He hesitated, and did have a look on his face like. Should I tell him this stuff? Well, he did tell me that guts are intestines and they are stuffed with ground up cow parts. I don’t want to say what parts but if you think about that today and how its all about making money you can just imagine.
        A year or so later I seen my Grandfather making Genoa Salami in the cellar of his house from a butchered pig. As time went on I have vivid memories of my Grandmother killing a very young Lamb in the garage for Christmas dinner and hearing it scream. I watched her as she held it upside down to drain the blood out of its slit throat into a pot. I can still remember my Aunt Mary chasing me out of the garage. I have never in my life eaten Lamb or Sheep after seeing that.
        That was years ago and now with the way they mass produce chicken, cattle and pigs and the way they slaughter them I will never eat meat again. The Beef and Pigs are injected with growth hormones to mass produce them. The same thing with Chickens. They are locked in small cages suffering and crying used only for their eggs and then slaughtered for fast food nuggets. Believe me they mince and feed you everything on that chicken including the fat and skin. It’s the same with fish. Did you ever see how they make fish sticks? The same as hot dogs. They grind up every thing they cut off the fish including the eyes and guts...The oceans are poisoned with Mercury. Remember the Mercury warnings? They don’t tell you that anymore. Its worse now. Now its oil, radiation and what ever else they dump in the ocean. Don’t you ever believe that they care because they don’t. Remember when you could trust the producers of food. Well don’t!
