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.

Cruelty Exposed at Iowa Factory Farm

Cruelty Exposed at Iowa Factory Farm

 Cruelty Exposed at Iowa Factory Farm
Undercover video footage exposing animal abuse at Hawkeye Sow Centers (HSC), a pig breeding factory farm in Leland, IA, was released last week by the animal advocacy group Compassion Over Killing (COK).
The video was taken by a COK investigator who worked undercover to document the miserable lives that sows and piglets are forced to endure, ranging from immobilization in gestation crates that don’t allow sows enough room to even turn around to piglets who underwent castration and tail docking with no painkillers and sick and injured pigs being left with no veterinary care, among other atrocities.
“Piglets born at this Iowa factory farm will be slaughtered at around six months of age, and as our investigator was told, some of their meat will be marketed under the brand name Hormel. While Hormel recently issued a statement that its company-owned facilities will be phasing out gestation crates, it did not commit to extending this new policy to the hundreds of independently-run facilities that ultimately supply Hormel, like HSC, which comprise the majority of Hormel’s pork,” according to COK.
This isn’t the first time the pork industry has come under fire for abuse in Iowa, which is the largest pork producing state in the U.S. Last year a Mercy for Animals investigation showed even worse abuses, and now Iowa is once again pushing for Ag Gag legislation that would make investigations like this illegal and sweep abuse under the rug.
Undercover investigations have played an important role in educating the public about abuses that occur on farms and have also drawn attention to standard industry practices that are inhumane. In some cases, investigations have lead to criminal charges being filed and new laws being enacted.
Please sign the petition asking Iowa legislators to oppose Ag Gag legislation and to hold agribusiness accountable.
