This month marks the 15th anniversary of Seaboard Foods in the Guymon, Oklahoma, area. Seaboard operates a pig factory farm where a PETA investigator documented that pigs were routinely kicked, beaten, and slammed against concrete floors. As a result of PETA's investigation, a Seaboard manager pleaded guilty to three counts of felony cruelty to animals. But instead of running the bums out of town, Guymon is—wait for it—throwing Seaboard Foods a big birthday bash. Cake, candles, and … cruelty?
PETA has a better idea. Instead of honoring pig abusers, Guymon should throw a party for the pigs. We have written to the mayor and suggested that he declare Saturday, October 23, "Pig Empathy Day"—and we've offered to send a contingent of Lettuce Ladies armed with vegan barbecue riblets and faux ham sandwiches to help get the party started. Sounds like hog heaven …

I love peta and what it stands for, but I cringe when I read stories like this. Like I said the "Lettuce Ladies" should be deployed to a shelter, helping people who are hungry. I'd rather see the Lettuce Ladies go to shelters, and create vegetable gardens, teach people how to grow their own veggies, can them and create their own food. But that would require hard work and actually helping people, as opposed to tempting them into becoming veggie/vegan through sex (scantily clad lettuce ladies).

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
