A shocking new investigation exposes the horror of piglets squealing in agony as workers grind down their teeth, slice off their tails, and cut holes in their ears.

 If you’re like me, you care about animals and you know that farmed animals have the capacity to suffer as much as the dogs and cats we all know and love. But what happens to pigs at an Aurora cooperative factory farm in Brazil will shock and disgust you. Aurora products are sold in Grupo Pão de Açúcar (GPA) grocery stores.
A shocking new investigation exposes the horror of piglets squealing in agony while workers grind down their teeth, slice off their tails, and cut holes in their ears. All of this is done without any pain relief.
Mother pigs are treated as mere meat-producing machines. Crammed inside tiny metal gestation crates barely larger than their own bodies, they can’t even turn around or lie down comfortably. These incredibly intelligent and social animals become so frustrated by extreme confinement that they desperately and repeatedly bite the bars of their cages—a sign of serious mental collapse.
This is heartbreaking and absolutely unacceptable. But together, we can end this horror.
Please, take a moment to sign this petition calling on GPA (which owns stores such as Pão de Açúcar, Extra, and Assaí) to require that its pork suppliers stop mutilating piglets without painkillers and cramming mother pigs into inherently inhumane gestation crates.
As the leading market food company in Brazil, GPA has the moral obligation to end the worst forms of animal suffering in its supply chain.

trump is Accomplishing One Thing: Making America Hate Again

This orange tinted clown doesn't even have the sense to realize he is the most disliked president in history.

Most Americans think Trump has encouraged white supremacist groups—and that he's done so intentionally

A new poll by Quinnipiac University reveals that a growing number of Americans think President Donald Trump has contributed to a more hateful atmosphere in the U.S., and many think he's deliberately encouraged hate groups. Nearly two-thirds of Americans said they believe that the level of hatred and prejudice have gone up since President Donald Trump entered office in January.
Researchers polled 1,514 voters across the nation between August 17 and 22. The data was collected on the heels of widespread criticism of Trump's refusal to unequivocally condemn this month's white supremacist gathering in Charlottesville, Virginia, and just before Trump suggested he would pardon former sheriff Joe Arpaio in an off-script tirade in Phoenix, Arizona on Tuesday. Arpaio, a longtime Trump supporter, was convicted last month of failing to obey a judge's order to end his practice of racially profiling Latinos in Maricopa County, Arizona; the ACLU called Trump's hint at pardoning him "an official endorsement of racism."
Thirty-two percent of respondents said the level of hatred in U.S. public life has not changed since Trump was inaugurated, while two percent stated that it has improved.
The survey's findings correspond with the Southern Poverty Law Center's most recent report on the rise of hate groups in the U.S. In February the group found that the number of these groups "rose for a second year in a row in 2016 as the radical right was energized by the candidacy of Donald Trump...The most dramatic growth was the near-tripling of anti-Muslim hate groups—from 34 in 2015 to 101 last year."
Nearly 60 percent of Americans surveyed by Quinnipiac said they felt Trump's actions and decisions had encouraged white supremacists like the ones who gathered in Charlottesville, and 61 percent said his encouragement of hate groups had been deliberate.
When asked if bigotry is a major issue for minority groups in the U.S. today, 50 percent said it was a "very serious" problem. Among Republicans, more respondents said they were more concerned about prejudice toward white people than toward minority groups—25 percent versus 21 percent.
Poll-takers also asked respondents to share the first word that came to mind when they thought of Trump. The word "strong" was the most-reported word, with 64 votes—but far more respondents came up with negative words as their first choices.
The rest of the top five most-reported words were "idiot" (59 votes), "incompetent" (58), "liar" (50), and "president" (49), while the sixth-most common word was "racist," with 29 votes.

Be Thankful trump and Bannon Are Idiots and Fox is Run by Illiterates

I don’t think anyone is surprised that Fox news has become a mouthpiece for Putin and the idiocy of trump, bannon and their gang of cowardly traitors.
Fox has zero crediblity, and the unfortunates who do watch it can’t really tell you what they are hearing, they say “It’s too complicated.”
It's fodder for the foolish, not considered a news source by anyone with a measurable IQ.
Fox is basically a waste of airtime.
Given their lack of anything approaching sophistication, it's not surprising they support America's dumbest president.
The one thing you will never hear anyone say about trump is “He is smart.”
Even the low information nutjobs that voted for him don’t think that he has the ability to think or reason clearly.
The “brains” behind this administration is Bannon, an individual who apparently can’t even remember to shave or bath.
Most people consider Bannon an idiot as well, but not quite as stupid as his sock puppet, trump.
Here is an example of Bannon’s stupidity, “Mitt Romney was a Christian Minister during the Vietnam war. He didn’t serve in the war.”
This overweight, unshaven moron forgot that trump dodged the draft by pretending to have “bone spurs”, which didn’t stop him from running around like an uncoordinated fool on the tennis courts, or swinging wildly at golf balls, but DID make it impossible to be a man, pick up a gun, and defend the country he would later repeatedly betray.
Mitt Romney has more honor in his little finger than all of the yahoos and scumbags. like trump and his fellow pedophiles Bannon and Roy Moore, that are attempting to destroy America for trump’s hero, Putin.
Although the befogged and hapless dummies that support trump’s “Making America Look Stupid Again” shennagans are a minority of Americans, mainly dropouts, alchoholics, crack and meth addicts, Southern pedophiles and incest supporters, foriegners point to the orange-tinted avatar of American stupidity, money addiction and inherited wealth as typically American.
In a recent article in Der Spiegal, “Only in dumbed down America could someone as racist and pathetically ignorant as trump hold ANY office.”
The nutjobs have taken over the asylum, but they will be kicked out  on the seat of thier pants in less than three years.
Americans are tired of being called stupid because of trump and his boss, the corpulent idiot, Bannon.
In the meantime, Americans can be thankful that trump and his co-conspiriters ARE stupid, shooting themselves in the foot every time they open their ignorant pieholes.
