War on Milk is now a War on Eggs

Timothy Birdnow

The war on dairy farming continues.

Now they are going after egg farmers. Recently S3239 was introduced in the U.S. Senate which according to the article by Mindy Patterson:

"With HSUS' vegan animal rights platform as the motivations behind crafting a controversial egg bill, S. 3239 was introduced in the U.S. Senate on Friday, May 25, 2012, inching U.S. egg producers closer to a mandate which would require them to phase out conventional cages for egg-laying hens and transition to a system called "enriched colony cages" by 2029, at a cost to U.S. egg producers ranging between $4 billion to $10 billion.

And while most Americans shrug their shoulders and live their lives, they are completely unaware of how this regulation will affect the cost of food and its availability in the future.  The current egg shortage in the U.K. should be a jolting wake-up call for Americans, illustrating that the onerous animal welfare regulations which have phased out conventional cages there have caused egg prices to quadruple, while diminishing egg supply to a "crisis" level.  This is a glimpse of what's coming to America if HSUS' egg bill becomes law."

End excerpt.

I have chronicled the continuing efforts by the U.S. government and the Progressives to destroy the dairy farming industry via overregulation (such as the declaration that milk is a form of oil and subject to the rules governing toxic waste spills) and have shown how the Army Corps of Engineers failed to act to drain the flood control pools last year in the big floods up in Minnesota and along the Mississippi, and then speculators like George Soros swooped in to buy prime farmland for pennies on the dollar. Now we have an eggstraordinary effort to squash cacklefruit.

And let us not forget the continuing war on beef and pork.

It should be obvious that the American diet is under assault by Progressives who have an ulterior agenda.
