    Meet Your Meat: A Look at Modern Day 'Factory Farms'

    Today I have a video for you which is, frankly, one of the most horrible I have ever seen. It shows in graphic detail how today's Factory Farm in the USA operates.

    I agree with you on the PETA people for the most part, but just because they are sometimes 'lunatics' does not mean we can dismiss everything they say out of hand.

    For sure, we as humans do have dominion over animals, but there is no reason animals cannot be treated in a humane and kind fashion.
