Saturday November 3rd, mark the date on the calander!
Come join Toronto Pig Save, among others, for a night full of music, food, and fun!!
Because they were showing the branding, tagging, and castrating (via rubber bands) of the beef cows.
This is why it doesn’t matter how small, organic, free-range, or “humane” a farm is — there will ALWAYS be animal abuse that is ‘necessary’ for that farm to operate at any level of efficiency. Anesthesia? Forget about it. Pain meds? Nope. The animal’s welfare ever being the first consideration? Sorry, not happening.
When I checked back in, they were putting duct tape on a calf because it was gentler than the alternative (ropes).
The operation in question was one of the “good ranches” — old fashioned ranchers who have free-range animals, who “respect” their animals (respect being not openly laughing at their cruelty and suffering, but still having no objection to causing suffering in the first place).
Animal farming and animal welfare are incompatible, point blank.
The words of truth and wisdom. Thank you.
Eminem - Not Afraid
Yeah, it’s been a ride
You can try and read my lyrics off of this paper before I lay ‘em
But you won’t take the sting out these words before I say ‘em
Cause ain’t no way I’mma let you stop me from causing mayhem
When I say I’mma do something I do it, I don’t give a damn
What you think, I’m doing this for me, so fuck the world
Feed it beans, it’s gassed up, if it thinks it’s stopping me
I’mma be what I set out to be, without a doubt, undoubtably
No if ands or buts don’t try to ask him why or how can he
From Infinite down to the last Relapse album he’s still shitting
Whether he’s on salary, paid hourly
Until he bows out or he shits his bowels out of him
Whichever comes first, for better or worse
He’s married to the game, like a “fuck you” for Christmas
His gift is a curse, forget the earth he’s got the urge
To pull his dick from the dirt and fuck the whole universe
Everybody come take my hand
We’ll walk this road together, through the storm
Whatever weather, cold or warm
Just letting you know that you’re not alone
Holla if you feel like you’ve been down the same road
I shouldn’t have to rhyme these words
In the rhythm for you to know it’s a rap
And to the fans, I’ll never let you down again, I’m back
I promise to never go back on that promise, in fact
Let’s be honest, that last Relapse CD was “ehhhh”
Relax, I ain’t going back to that now
All I’m tryna say is get back, click-clack BLAOW
Cause I ain’t playin’ around
But it’s time to exorcise these demons
These motherfuckers are doing jumping jacks now
And I just can’t keep living this way
So starting today, I’m breaking out of this cage
I’m standing up, I’mma face my demons
I’m manning up, I’mma hold my ground
I’ve had enough, now I’m so fed up
Time to put my life back together right now
It was my decision to get clean, I did it for me
Admittedly I probably did it subliminally for you
So I could come back a brand new me, you helped see me through
And don’t even realize what you did, believe me you
I think I got a tear in my eye, I feel like the king of
My world, haters can make like bees with no stingers, and drop dead
No more beef lingers, no more drama from now on, I promise
To focus solely on handling my responsibilities as a father
So I solemnly swear to always treat this roof
Like my daughters and raise it
Cause the way I feel, I’m strong enough to go to the club
Cause I’m raising the bar,
