More Workers convicted of Animal Cruelty at DiGiorno Cheese Supplier

By Vandhana Bala

WBF Rough Handling 06.jpgTwo more workers have been convicted of animal cruelty following an undercover investigation by Mercy For Animals at Wiese Brothers Farms in Wisconsin. Crescencio Pineda and Misael Monge-Minero were caught on hidden-camera viciously kicking and whipping cows, beating them the face and body, and using machinery to cruelly hoist sick or injured cows into the air. They have been ordered to pay a total of $1,322 in fines.

The undercover video footage led to the conviction of two other workers at the facility a few weeks ago. In total, four workers have been charged and convicted of cruelty to animals at this dairy factory farm. At the time of the investigation, Wiese Brothers was a dairy supplier to DiGiorno brand frozen pizza.

Watch the shocking undercover video that led to the convictions here:

What's especially ugly, not to mention bizarre, is hearing the abusers call the cows "cunts" and "whores" while they beat them.

Bill Moyers Speaks to Historian re: FDR and "The Four Freedoms" & why we should never forget..

http://billmoyers.com/episode/fighting-for-the-four-freedoms/

Bill Moyers has one of the best progressive discussion programs on the air and since it is

on Public Television, you don't even need Cable to see it.

I'm having trouble with the Jury system. I served on one yesterday & then got no result.

Has anyone been watching AMC's "Low Winter Sun"?

It's a dark cop drama based on a British Drama of the same name...I'm liking it (mostly) so far.

I'm interested in other's reactions.

I admit to being "on the fence" about the proposed strike on Syria -- until I read this

in Common Dreams.

The statistic that really got my attention was this:

Out of the 100,000 already killed in Syria by conventional weapons, a hefty 43% were ASSAD's people.

For some reason, I'd had the idea that the deaths there were something of a genocide

being perpetrated by Assad. This convinced me that the conflict truly IS a Civil War.

The use of chemical weapons is, of course, heinous, but to my understanding, we're not even sure if those weren't dispersed

by one of the very numerous factions of the rebel groups.

Aside from humanitarian relief, I think we need to stay the hell out of this.

Has ANYONE noticed the complete blackout on the huge anti-ALEC demonstration in Chicago last week?

Even Rachel didn't cover it, which makes me very afraid that they are being muzzled.

The notorious ALEC held it 40th Anniversary party and Strategy Session (I have their complete agenda)

in Chicago at the famous Palmer House Hotel last Thursday. It was HUGE, at least Two Thousand people

plus, big for that kind of thing on a weekday -- I was there, it was big and NOISY and a few protesters were even arrested.

Only one Local station mentioned it at all, and what REALLY shocked me was that not ONE of even the most

progressive anchors (think Rachel and Chris Hayes) said a WORD about it.

ALEC is having a HUGE influence on our laws -- The "Stand Your Ground" law that helped kill Trayvon Martin

was written by ALEC as well as the Voter ID laws....Right now they're getting ready to start Fracking all over the

country, threatening our water supply.

There is NO greater fan of Rachel, Chris Hayes and the true progressives on that station,

me, but if she and the others are being muzzled on ALEC, I honestly think we're doomed.

P.S. I got hold of ALEC's agenda for their big meeting and I can give you the link if you're interested.
