Egg Recall... Again

The food industry better wake up, the people are starting to wake up. More folks want a few chickens in their back yard for their own eggs, and sometimes meat. More people are growing their own vegetables or buying organic after hearing about GMO foods. Who wants genetically modified junk?

I have read articles where the government is trying to make it difficult for you to do these simple things though. You have to fight for it. What would you rather have living next to you? A few hens scratching around in someone's organic garden, or a few flea bitten smelly dogs that poop up against your fenceline and no one cleans it up? Not saying all dog owners are this way, but, I am painting a picture here.

There is a 93 year old man that spent several thousand dollars on a coop to have a few chickens, relive some good memories and make some with his grandkids, but he has to fight for it. Here is the article.

This is just one example of many many people having to fight for their right to have a few hens in their back yard. The old way of thinking needs to go out the window. Chickens make great pets, they don't need to be classified as 'livestock' anymore. I have proved time and time again that chickens have personalities and feelings. But the government wants you to rely on them, on their big companies they have invested in.

People are waking up, and they want to know what is in the food they are eating...for example...


There is just no excuse for putting that junk in there.

Here is a nice video to end with. Everyone, take control of your food! :)

I didn't believe my ears when I heard on the news yesterday that we had another egg recall. It's getting to the point that we have to be afraid to eat anything.

We have to be dependent upon the system, the market, for our food so that when the one world government is established under the Anti-Christ we won't be able to eat without them. Or whoever is left won't be able to eat without them.

It has been really prevalent in our neck of the woods. Recalls every month or so...You'd think those people would be aware by now. I do love eggs too. The organic do cost more but it is worth it when you think of the dangers.

That was really interesting about the chicken nuggets. Maybe I'll try some of the organic eggs, I don't use very many. Wonder what's in that sweet and sour sauce too.

Another egg recall? I missed that on the news today. Glad you are sharing it here. I would love to have some chickens here!! I am big on doing a veggie garden each year for fresh veggies all summer long... would like to have a bigger one next year the way I think food prices are going to go. Chickens would help too. How much should I expect to pay for one?
