Family Farms vs Factory Farms

Family Farms

The soul of America

The American Dream.

Values of:

     Hard work

     Respect for the Earth

          The water

          The soil

          The air.

Factory Farms

CAFOs by name

Killing off the family farm,

Values of:

     Government subsidies

     Money over neighbor

     Chemical industrial waste

     Pollution of

          Water, soil, air.

CAFO Crapspreading liquid poop that runs off into the watershed

The neighbor nobody wants

Raping & abusing the land

Degradation.

lg manure pitsponds of liquid poop – – – smell to high heaven

Then there are the

Buffoons in government,

On the payola

Always looking

     To help the Industrial Farms

     No matter the cost to We the People.

Always planning their next election

     Kissing butts

     Hands outstretched.

Whatever it takes

     For personal gain.

lg sleep, eat, poopeat – – sleep – – poop —— all in the same place

Doing whatever it takes,

     At the expense of

     The American Dream.

Aldo Leopold – A Thought

A Thought for the Day!

One of the penalties of an ecological education is that one lives alone in a world of wounds.  Much of the damage inflicted on land is quite invisible to laymen.  An ecologist must either harden his shell and make believe that the consequences are none of his business, or he must be the doctor who sees the marks of death in a community that believes itself well and does not want to be told otherwise……

Stewardship – – Earth

Sunrise

You & I,

We

            Are Stewards of the Earth.

We

            – cherish it

            – appreciate it

            – care for it

                        as if it was our own!

We stand in awe

            Of the mystery it is

            Of our place in that mystery.

Will our legacy

            Be a celebration to those who follow?

When

            We pass,

Then

            It passes on.

Will Earth rejoice?
