USDA retracts support of Meatless Mondays, is beef industry’s puppet »
Man, this is so gross. Even more proof that the governmental agencies put in place to protect us only care about appeasing the big money$$$.
From the USDA Twitter:
You can just imagine how that went down. Like, lower level people at the USDA were all, “sure, Meatless Monday, that’s cool, Americans should eat several fewer pounds of shit-laced meat a day!” and then the beef industry bigwigs saw it and freaked the fuck out because, “OMG AMERICANS EATING FEWER DEAD ANIMALS THAT’S UN-AMERICAN!! AND ALSO, HOW WILL WE GET RICHER AND MAKE EVERYONE ELSE SICK AND POOR???” and then they called the USDA bigwigs who—shocker!—are some of their bff’s/former employees and BAM, Meatless Monday retracted.
What. a. bunch. of. bullshit. LITERALLY.
