I need your help!

If you haven’t caught wind of this issue yet, I implore you to read any of the following articles

Whether you live in Michigan or not, we need your help! If you can take 10 seconds and sign the following petition, it gets sent directly to Governor Snyder’s email. We do not have enough uproar regarding this issue, and they are scheduled to start seizing and slaughtering these poor farmers’ livestock any day.

    Ok, as a Canadian I don’t think I can sign the petition but I did Tweet to Michael Pollan to ask him what he thought about it. Even if he doesn’t reply hopefully others will see the Tweet and educate themselves about the issue. Very best of luck on this. xo

    Signed and posted to Facebook, and tonight it’ll be Pressed on http://TheFarmersTaft.com! What a giant smelly load of corporate-funded B.S.

    I find this disgusting abuse of power. I have signed the partition and will re-blog and post on Facebook. Power is in the hands of the people if we use it.

    This is a typical action on behalf of the gov… got a problem? Let’s punish the ones that are not causing the problem! (sarcasm, of course) It’s like outlawing guns – the only ppl that will obide by the law are people that are not criminals and need the guns for self-defense, while criminals will still get their guns easily through a now violent black market. It doesn’t stop crime, just like this will not stop feral pigs. I forget who said it but if government is the answer, the wrong question is being asked!
