Vote yes on Prop. 2

I was appalled to read that The Signal opposes Prop 2.

After all, it is only asking that farmers and ranchers give a little more room to chickens that live their whole lives crowded together in small cages.

Chickens’ “whole life” really just lasts about 1.5 years due to the lack of movement and the continuous amount of eggs that they are forced to give. Their bones weaken so much that they can’t even stand anymore.

It is surprising to see that the “big business” chicken farmers used their scare tactics in saying that they will move to Mexico or that the eggs will go way up in price.

In fact if they want to move, let them go — good riddance. Other, more humane farmers will pick up the slack, and as to the price — according to the research done by a multitude of organizations, including the Humane Society of the United States — it would only go up less than a penny an egg.

The farmers would have until 2015 to update their farms. Also let it be known that they are under federal investigation now for price-fixing their eggs.

It is unbelievable that in our “civil” society we treat animals in such inhuman conditions. Don’t let big business go on as usual, using scare tactics to keep you from the truth. See through their lies, be counted as a responsible human person and vote yes on Prop 2.
