Spy drones to clip factory farms' wings
Uncle Sam has spent so much dough spying on Americans, you can hardly use the john without some FBI flunkie handing you toilet paper. Whether they're tapping our phones or flying drones over American cities, Uncle Sam's "spygate" has gotten so ridiculous that we ought to admit what NSA really stands for.
Nothing's sacred anymore.
But it looks like one brave American has finally gotten the idea to put those pricey drones to good use. He's out to PROTECT your rights -- instead of obliterating them.
Journalist Will Potter is raising a fortune online to buy drones and offer you a peek at something Big Food hoped you'd never see -- the disgusting conditions at America's factory farms.
From thousands of feet in the air, Potter is going to give you a good look at the red, white and blue. As in the putrid lakes of red cattle blood... the white masses of sickly cows packed shoulder to shoulder on filthy feed lots... and plenty of other atrocities food processors have denied until they're blue in the face.
And if this picture is any indication, (click at your own risk, it's NOT pretty) you're about to learn a heck of a lot about where that supermarket steak REALLY comes from.
Peeved-off farmers are threatening to throw Potter in jail if one of his drones flies over their farms. Well, I've got my check book ready to help this fella make bail. Because I'm all for privacy -- but it's time YOUR rights stopped taking a back seat to Big Food's.
Because you have a right to see the half-dead chickens... loaded up on antibiotics and crawling over piles of their own crap... that America's meat millionaires are selling you for $2 a pound.
You're about to get one heck of a view -- and once you do, you'll never buy your meat from a mega-farm again.
