Animal-Eaters And Animal-Huggers Need To Get Together

Now the Humane Society has come out with its list of picks for Ag Secretary. They like "John Boyd, Jr., founder and president of the National Black Farmers Association, and former Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack." They're against Stenholm, because he's a tool of the factory farming lobby and opposes any animal protections.

Sadly, there's no common candidate between the Humane Society and the foodie lobby. They should be able to get along, as neither side likes factory farming and the foodies did mention humane treatment of animals in their recommendations.

If we ended corn subsidies not only would food be healthier as their would be less food animals fed exclusively corn it might also result in less factory farming as it would be more expensive to operate feed lots.

Ten-percentfavor hunting humans? That is probaby about the same as the number of libertarians in the US.
