Chicken Little likes to walk in the woods. She likes to look at the trees. She likes to smell the flowers. She likes to listen to the birds singing.
One day while she is walking an acorn falls from a tree, and hits the top of her little head.
– My, oh, my, the sky is falling. I must run and tell the lion about it, – says Chicken Little and begins to run.
She runs and runs. By and by she meets the hen.
– Where are you going? – asks the hen.
– Oh, Henny Penny, the sky is falling and I am going to the lion to tell him about it.
– How do you know it? – asks Henny Penny.
– It hit me on the head, so I know it must be so, – says Chicken Little.
– Let me go with you! – says Henny Penny. – Run, run.
So the two run and run until they meet Ducky Lucky.
– The sky is falling, – says Henny Penny. – We are going to the lion to tell him about it.
– How do you know that? – asks Ducky Lucky.
– It hit Chicken Little on the head, – says Henny Penny.
– May I come with you? – asks Ducky Lucky.
– Come, – says Henny Penny.
So all three of them run on and on until they meet Foxey Loxey.
– Where are you going? – asks Foxey Loxey.
– The sky is falling and we are going to the lion to tell him about it, – says Ducky Lucky.
– Do you know where he lives? – asks the fox.
– I don’t, – says Chicken Little.
– I don’t, – says Henny Penny.
– I don’t, – says Ducky Lucky.
– I do, – says Foxey Loxey. – Come with me and I can show you the way.
He walks on and on until he comes to his den.
– Come right in, – says Foxey Loxey.
They all go in, but they never, never come out again.
Animal Rights 12-Step Agenda to End Animal Use
This (or its equivalent) was up on “animal rights” websites, like PETA’s, way back in the early ’90’s, but you won’t find it on any of them NOW because they have developed propaganda mill BIG LIES to deceive the public about animal rights (which is NOT the same as animal welfare).
From “Politics of Animal Liberation”
by Kim Bartlett [Bartlett is wife to Merritt Clifton, editor of Animal People newsletter, and online news published in ANIMAL AGENDA, November 1987
1. Abolish by law all animal research.
2. Outlaw the use of animals for cosmetic and product testing, classroom demonstration and in weapons
3. Vegetarian meals should be made available at all public institutions, including schools
4. Eliminate all animal agriculture.
5. No herbicides, pesticides or other agricultural chemicals. Outlaw predator control.
6. Transfer enforcement of animal welfare legislation away from the Department of Agriculture.
7. Eliminate fur ranching and the use of furs.
8. Prohibit hunting, trapping and fishing.
9. End the international trade in wildlife goods.
10. Stop any further breeding of companion animals, including purebred dogs and cats. Spaying and neutering should be subsidized by state and municipal governments. Abolish commerce in animals for the pet trade.
11. End the use of animals in entertainment and sports.
12. Prohibit the genetic manipulation of species.
NOTE: This was written in 1987, long before genetic engineering and cloning. In this context, “genetic manipulation” means selective breeding.
WHY EGGIE FARMERS CANNOT WIN BY WORKING WITH HSUS??
“California’s egg farmers have spent the last four years attempting to gain a clear understanding of how to comply with Prop. 2 but, unfortunately, we are no closer today to knowing how to comply than we were when the law first passed in 2008,” said Arnie Riebli, president of the Association of California Egg Farmers (ACEF). He added, “Given the ambiguity in Proposition 2 and the risk of criminal prosecution for violating it, egg farmers have no choice other than to challenge the validity of the law.”
ACEF points out they worked to establish a national standard for egg-laying hen enclosures. Last year, ACEF joined with the Humane Society of United States (HSUS) and the United Egg Producers (UEP) to support congressional efforts to establish national standards on egg-laying hen enclosures, including dimensions and other key elements that are not found in Prop. 2.
“Time has become a major issue for California egg farmers who need to know the size and density requirements for the enclosures they must build now prior to the law’s compliance date in 25 months,” added Debbie Murdock, ACEF executive director. “The lack of clarity regarding hen enclosure standards has become dire because it will require an investment of more than $400 million from the state’s egg farmers and an estimated three years to construct new facilities in California.”
Since the passage of Prop. 2 in 2008, ACEF has advocated the use of housing systems that provide 116 square inches of space per hen compared to 67 square inches of space in a conventional cage, the group clarified. But HSUS – the author of Prop. 2 – says the “law requires anywhere from 200 square inches of enclosure space per bird to a cage-free environment.” [That’s about 13 x 16 per animal for HSUS’ calculation, compared to 11 x 10.6 for eggies] However, HSUS has never explained how it reached either interpretation, ACEF noted. NO AND HSUS WON’T EVER EXPLAIN IT!
PD note: The question might become whether experts can be used to determine whether the numbers set by HSUS are required for the law, which, as Federal Judge noted in Los Angeles, it will be “easy” to determine. If HSUS was so confident of their numbers in determining the exact cage size, why didn’t they put it into the Proposition to begin with? We know why, because they didn’t want to be tied down to a minimum size in the law.
There are laws in CA which claim DOGS must be in crates that are so big, the crate would never FIT into a car. The crate would have to be bigger than a refrigerator and they don’t really make crates that large. That would entail obtaining a cage used for zoo animals. That law is in effect in Elk Grove, CA right now. Elk Grove also says a dog in heat cannot go outside, period. So you want the dog to take a dump INSIDE? ARs at work.
The eggie farmers would do best NOT to listen to HSUS, NOT to “work” with HSUS on any egg standards, and NOT to believe that HSUS can be trusted. The other agriculture groups are correct, one simply cannot work with HSUS, a known Animal Rights group, and expect to believe that you will just CREATE some wonderful acceptable rules that HSUS will abide by, without more.
BY NOW the eggie groups should be able to see that:
1. HSUS cannot be trusted, since all animal rights believe that they can and should use any means necessary to gain the advantage, no matter what it takes to do so 2. HSUS has a track record a mile long, proving that HSUS WILL do anything they want to do, including making up facts, not telling the truth, using stealth, lies, misrepresentation, and outright deception, to get what they want
3. HSUS is a lobbying group and functions as a 501(c)(3) on paper, but nonetheless will do anything and everything that political entities can and will do, including using subterfuge, and improper methods commonly seen used by many politicians and special interest groups. That is their job, being honest and fair is not their job. 4. The 12 Steps of Animal Rights dictates the goals which ARs seek to gain. See above……..and understand–the sky is falling if you work WITH animal rights!!!
