The proponent of farm factories tries to scare consumers into believing that
without farm factories the cost of meat would go 'sky high up'. 
Meat is already not cheap, but I would prefer to pay a little extra and have knowledge that meat is healthy and that animal that sacrificed his life to feed me, did not suffer unduly.

PERSONAL INSPIRATIONAL REFLECTIONS.

Factory farming is huge, ugly, puss dripping boil on American's  'skin'. It affects the core of our being. America is a big, influential country, with the world to look up to and take the clue. 
What do we think about ourselves?
-Modern? Progressive? Humanitarian? Democratic?
How about enlighten, leader?
Strike out all of the above. We are NOT democratic, 
or humanitarian! We're uncivilized, savage, barbarians
sharing the same ugly sin - all of us -  perpetrators and the one that
turn their head, close the eyes, do nothing, passive and permit the present situation - reality with farm factories and cruelty to exist. 
 Farm factories is our shame! 
It is as disease, poison running in our veins, sickening whole our 
common body, that would affect lives, the way of living and thinking
of our children and future generations.. Be industrious, diligent, do good and as Google put it 'do no evil''.
Do not allow yourself be motivated by greed or strictly by money.
It's a trap. Money has no heart. We need HEART. OUR NATION 
NEEDS HEART. BE THE HEART OF THE NATION. DO GOOD. CARE!

We are all connected - one chain. The Earth that shake in earthquake is not self contained, but send ripples and affects the far
distant places from its origin.
Mental and physical body of our country do and shall reflect
our way of thinking and our actions. If we permit, tolerate, pretend
they do not exist- such inherited evil as farm factories will root in 
our nation heart will teach our children that shallow attitudes,
not caring, lack of love, cruelty is an acceptable way of life. 
With present approach, the way we go now - we can expect and
I predict more crime, violence, more divorces, more broken homes,
less ability to deal constructively with problems, personal mental
strength decline- all that and more negative aspects on the rise.
Good and Bad - are both contagious.
Remember, we are all connected and affecting each other. 
The farm factories are concentration camps for animals. 
The farm factories have to be stopped and eliminated.
"ag-gag" is not the answer! Quite opposite. "Ag-gag" hinder the
progress by not permitting the whole, existing truth to surface.
It hide, cover festering boil, but do not heal it.
PUBLIC HAS RIGHT TO KNOW. The action should go in quite different direction. Are we going go hungry, starved if we eliminate
that evil, cruel farm farming? NO! We will not!
Huge corporations should be the leaders IN CARING. Do not let them abuse You. We can dictate to Big Business how we want them to act and think. Have a courage. The courage of doing good - for yourself and your children. 
Our national motto is IN GOD WE TRUST. We pray, we go to church, we claim that we are God's Nation. Live that faith! 
ALLOW COMPASSION, CARING FOR ALL LIFE - HUMAN AND ANIMALS - BE REFLECTED IN ALL YOUR DOINGS. 
So, what should we do? 
We should establish compassion laws and protection for animals. 
his mean farm animals, also. 
WE SHOULD ELIMINATE FARM FACTORIES!
We should instead of "ag-gag", have not less, but stronger, stricter
rules and laws governing our food  supply and the way it is produced.
Animals, including farm animals, are not meat when they are alive.
They should be treated with respect.
Employees in agriculture should have continuous training in proper, compassionate handling animals.

The farmer deserves our help and support. But let stand for the one,
that shows respect for our need of caring. 

We are born - people! We have a long way to go, to show the 
spirit and qualities that would allow to call ourselves HUMAN.
PEOPLE  have bones, blood, muscle...but being HUMAN...
is like having the spirit of bird in fly...
reach up..achieves...loves...shines, so strongly, that no evil would dare to come close. Be HUMAN- 
-AN AMERICAN -FROM OUR FATHER'S DREAM.

 LET ME FINISH THIS ARTICLE BY ANOTHER QUOTE  FROM:

http://www.acompassionateworld.org/facts-and-figures/
'There is enough food for everyone, but much is wasted by feeding precious crops to animals crowded and confined on industrial farms; a cruel and wasteful practice.
At Compassion in World Farming, the leading international farm animal welfare organization, we campaign to end factory farming...
...We strive for a vision of better food for the benefit of people, the countryside and animal welfare'.
