    You may not want to eat bacon after watching this. Pig Farm cruelty [VIDEO]

    A new undercover video showing gruesome conditions in which pigs are kept at an Iowa factory farm (emphasis on the “factory”) has hit the web, courtesy of the advocacy group Mercy for Animals (MFA). Representatives of MFA will officially present the graphic footage Wednesday during several press conferences, beginning around 11 am EST. Before you tell yourself this has nothing to do with you, take note: MFA has linked this particular pork producer to four major U.S. food retailers, all of which sell meat raised in that factory farm.

    We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

    It takes a special kind of person to spend their day doing that.

    It takes a special person to take a living, breathing being and slam it onto the floor or other hard surface in order to crack its skull. And then pick up the next squirming one and do the same...and again, and again, and again...and then break for lunch.

    Yeah, a farmer. Ever slaughtered animals, Philly? Or do you just eat meat with sanctimonious pleasure?

    I eat meat with a certain level of guilt. That video probably put me off meat again. I'm not opposed to killing animals for food or for sport. I have a bit of an issue, though, with just picking up baby animals and slamming their heads until their skulls break. And cutting their tails off while they are alive and running about seems a bit on the cruel and unnecessary side to me.
