Happy Tofurky Day!


Hi --

Ok, Proposition 8 in California totally sucks.

I don't know what's going to happen now, but people are pissed, and it's going to take more time and resources organizing to change it.

BUT -

Let's not forget Proposition 2 in California this election, which stops the confinement of farm animals -- and that one passed!

YAY!

from wikipedia:

Proposition 2, or the Standards for Confining Farm Animals , appeared on the November 2008 ballot in California, where it passed with 63.3% of the vote.

Prop 2 creates a new state statute that prohibits the confinement of farm animals in a manner that does not allow them to turn around freely, lie down, stand up, and fully extend their limbs.

Gays lose rights, animals gain rights.

For that guy I met in Florida, from San Fran, who was a total pig bottom; for him, the California votes were kind of a wash.
