The Lil Red Hen takes a break!

The Lil Red Hen takes a break!

June 25, 2015

“Who wants to spend their life in a small cage, laying eggs?” … “not I”, said the Lil Red Hen

“Who wants to live in a crowded barn with 49,999 other hens?” …”Not I”, said the Lil Red Hen

“Who thinks overcrowding, antibiotics, and fecal matter so thick a hen can’t breathe is the way to raise chickens? … Certainly not I”, said the Lil Red Hen

It’s not funny! It is true. I can’t help but wonder about all the hype caused by the “avian flu”.  “They” say it came from China. Hmmm, now we are supposed to be glad that our egg prices won’t go up because we are going to import eggs…from China!

“They” say us backyard flocks are the problem. I say bullshit! I think this is one more way to scare city people into “buying what they are selling”. I think it’s one more way for our far reaching government to control us. I fear their efforts to “help me out”.

Thomas Jefferson said, “A government big enough to give us all we want, is big enough to take all we have.” I think these words have never been truer. “I love my country, but fear my government”….. what a sad thing to say…, said the Lil Red Blogger.
