Video by Paul McCartney: "If Slaughter Houses Had Glass Walls Everyone Would be a Vegetarian"






What kind of people work in slaughter houses and on factory farms? Are they tested to be psychopaths because I don't know how you can abuse an animal or watch an animal suffer like these people do. I used to say if I had to kill my food I would be a vegetarian because I couldn't do it. I was a vegetarian for 10 years and quit because I was talked into eating meat by a holistic doctor who believed it was much healthier as long as you eat "organic." Unfortunately, even animals raised organically live shorter lives and must go to a slaughter house. Organic only means the animal must be given organic feed and no antibiotics or hormones. It doesn't mean the animal won't be abused. Organic chicken farms still kill male chicks by sending them through a grinder while still alive or the more "humane" way of spraying poison on them until they suffocate. Free-range doesn't mean anything because unless it also says organic, these places aren't regulated. Even organically raised chickens may only get an hour of sunshine a day.

Same with dairy. I thought I could still eat organic milk and cheese because no animal has to die. Well, that's what I used to think. Males born to dairy cows are castrated (without anesthesia) and raised for veal or beef. If raised for veal, they are put in a small area where their legs are tied so are unable to move. You see, this keeps the meat tender. They are slaughtered before they are a month old.

Here's another lovely video brought to you an uncover investigation.





Here's a question: How healthy can it be to eat an animal that has been endured so much suffering? Non-organically raised animals are just toxic but even organically raised must have extremely high cortisol levels throughout their lives and even higher when slaughtered. Then we eat them. 

After watching the above videos, I have vowed to no longer eat meat, eggs, or dairy products or to buy leather or anything made from an animal. I don't want even one animal to suffer and live a horrible, tortured short life because of me. What do you think? Anyone want to join me?

SUPREME COURT SAVES OBAMACARE: SHOULD WE BE HAPPY?

The language in the ACA restricted subsidies to state-run exchanges. Since only 17 states ran their own exchanges. The federal government took over for the states opting out of running their own exchanges. The people enrolled in Obamacare in these remaining states would lose their subsidies if the Supreme Court upheld the restriction. The Supreme Court announced its decision today:

According to CNBC:
In a major decision, the U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday ruled in a 6-3 decision that the federal subsidies that help nearly 6.4 million people pay for their Obamacare health plans are legal under the Affordable Care Act.
The ruling avoids what many analysts predicted would be a nightmare scenario if the plaintiffs had won: individual plan insurance prices skyrocketing in two-thirds of the United States, and the loss of health coverage for upwards of 8 million people in states served by the federal insurance marketplace HealthCare.gov by next year.
"Congress passed the Affordable Care Act to improve health insurance markets, not to destroy them," Chief Justice John Roberts wrote in the majority decision.
In its ruling in the case known as King v. Burwell, the high court accepted the administration’s argument that the ACA allows federal tax credits to be issued to people who buy health plans through a federally run Obamacare exchange.
Justice Antonin Scalia wrote the dissent, joined by Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito.

According to CNN:
Seated right next to the Chief Justice, Scalia proceeded to eviscerate his reasoning. He reeled off a string of unflattering descriptions about the ruling, calling it "wonderfully convenient," complaining about "interpretative jiggery-pokery" and arguing it was not the Court's job to make up for the sloppy drafting of the law by Congress.
Roberts heard the dissent throughout without giving a visible reaction until Scalia quipped that the law should be called SCOTUScare, causing the Chief Justice to chuckle and sending laughter through the public galleries.

Not surprisingly, republican candidates Mark Rubio and Jeb Bush are not happy with this ruling and Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton is pleased. What about the rest of us? Should we be happy with the decision? Even with subsidies, Obamacare is not affordable for many, has privacy issues, is costly to run, inflates medical costs, makes insurance companies rich, increases paperwork for time-strapped doctors, and many other problems to long to list. If we can only get rid of the insurance companies and fix Obamacare's many other problems, then maybe it has a chance of survival long-term. Maybe.

Every Mass Shooting Shares One Thing In Common & It’s NOT Weapons


Written by Dan Roberts


Manasquan, NJ –-(Ammoland.com)- Nearly every mass shooting incident in the last twenty years, and multiple other instances of suicide and isolated shootings all share one thing in common, and its not the weapons used.

The overwhelming evidence points to the signal largest common factor in all of these incidents is the fact that all of the perpetrators were either actively taking powerful psychotropic drugs or had been at some point in the immediate past before they committed their crimes.

Multiple credible scientific studies going back more than a decade, as well as internal documents from certain pharmaceutical companies that suppressed the information show that SSRI drugs ( Selective Serotonin Re-Uptake Inhibitors ) have well known, but unreported side effects, including but not limited to suicide and other violent behavior. One need only Google relevant key words or phrases to see for themselves. www.ssristories.com is one popular site that has documented over 4500 “ Mainstream Media “ reported cases from around the World of aberrant or violent behavior by those taking these powerful drugs.

The following list of mass shooting perpetrators and the drugs they were taking or had been taking shortly before their horrific actions was compiled and published to Facebook by John Noveske, founder and owner of Noveske Rifleworks just days before he was mysteriously killed in a single car accident. Is there a link between Noveske’s death and his “outting” of information numerous disparate parties would prefer to suppress, for a variety of reasons ?
I leave that to the individual readers to decide. But there is most certainly a documented history of people who “knew to much” or were considered a “threat” dying under extraordinarily suspicious circumstances.
