And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

Concealed Cruelty!

If you never want to eat pork again, then watch this video.  Seriously, you will never think of asking for Bacon for your burgers, frying them up on breakfast morning, or making bacon-wrapped Jalapenos on July 4th.  

On Wednesday, I saw the video you're about to see, and I haven't been able to write about it for the past few days, because of the images seared into my mind.  It was one of the most horrendous things I have ever seen.  If you thought Human Centipede was bad, or maybe even those terrible movies, like Hostel or Saw; this video puts those movies to shame.  This is real life folks.

Mercy for Animals, an animal rights group, released footage of some pig abuse going on at a company called, "Iowa Select," an industrial farm that supplies pork to Krogers, Safeway and Costco.  In the video you will see workers, snap off tails from little baby piglets and castrate them without any anesthetic.  You'll watch as they toss and throw them around like footballs.  I mean, the video is the most graphic and disgusting thing you'll ever see.  You see abscesses due to infections, and "skin is flayed away from painful-looking open sores, revealing bone, muscle and pus underneath."

I don't even know where to begin with this, but these people need to be held accountable.  I understand life has to go on, but I'm sure there are some more humane ways of handling these pigs.  Pigs are pigs, I know that, but caring for them as they grow up is important.  Proper care can be provided by hiring more people if you have to... it's the economy stupid.

I'm warning you, don't watch this if you have a queasy stomach, and throw-up easily.

I pulled it up but I just couldn't make myself watch it, I have a pig that I really love and to see one abused is something I don't think I could take. These people have serious issues that are really scary. If a person can cruelly hurt an animal they can hurt human beings too.

What got to me were the people who spoke in the video, who seem to not give a f**k about them. It was just horrible. I can understand not wanting to watch it.
