About My Blog.

Welcome! This is "Catatonic Digressions."
Most readers don't understand my blog's title. It's an old inside joke from a forum long gone. I was going to change it, but since it's been "confusing" for so long, I decided to leave it. Don't worry about what it means, the content of the blog is what matters...or not

Unfortunately, my blog isn't what I set out for it to be. A sick woman in Orleans, MA began stalking me in 2007 on Myspace. Since that time, this woman obsessed over me to the point of having the police come to her home and threaten to confiscate her laptop. She is a racist and anti-Semite.I could no longer blog freely, knowing this nutbag was just going to take the photos I'd post and put them on a child exploitation website.

This site is only up for the information it has that others might need to know about. That information is about "Seal Shepherd" aka Michael McDade, Kat McAboy aka Marilyn McAboy and Veronika Hompo, a self-proclaimed Nazi.

I'm a real person. I'm real and I don't pretend to be someone I'm not. After years of putting up with online abuse by manipulative, pathological liars, attention whores or narcissists, I've had it. Don't bother me with pathetic drama. I have no time for these types of people and their need to absorb others' time and attention.

This blog is no longer used. I've retired it for the most part unless something very important comes up.

McDonald's Rib Supplier Sued For McFibbing

McDonald's McRib Supplier Sued For McFibbing

pig2011b.jpgLast week, The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) filed a legal complaint against McDonald's pork supplier Smithfield Foods alleging the company is making false and misleading claims to its customers and shareholders about the way pigs are treated at its facilities.

In a video series titled Taking the Mystery out of Pork Production, Smithfield claims that the living conditions provided for pigs is "ideal" and that their "every need is met." Yet undercover investigations at Smithfield facilities document workers tossing baby pigs like footballs, denying sick or injured pigs veterinary care and mother pigs confined for nearly their entire lives inside tiny metal gestation crates barely bigger than their own bodies.

Far from ideal, gestation crates are considered to be so cruel that they have been banned in the entire European Union, New Zealand, and eight U.S. states. Dr. Temple Grandin, one of the world's leading experts on farmed animal welfare and advisor to Smithfield, says gestation crates are inhumane and should be phased out. Corroborating the HSUS's findings, MFA's own investigations have revealed gestation crates to be perhaps the cruelest form of institutionalized animal abuse in existence:

According to Dr. Donald Broom, Cambridge University professor and former scientific advisor to the Council of Europe, pigs "have the cognitive ability to be quite sophisticated. Even more so than dogs and certainly [more so than] three-year-olds." They have the ability to express friendships, use vocalizations and body language, and are particularly fond of playing games with one another. But to Smithfield and other pork producing giants, pigs are treated like mere commodities and profit is always put ahead of animal welfare.

Don't buy the lie. We all have the power to help end needless cruelty to pigs and other farmed animals by adopting a healthy and humane vegan lifestyle. Order your free Vegetarian Starter Kitfor helpful tips and recipes.
