That's why I let it go ahead....to prove that we could rise above that stuff and have a useful discussion.

If we do not begin to be able to have adult conversations about public policy, there are major forces out there that will have won.  And, we will have lost.

Agreed completely.  What needs to happen is to end the blame game and name calling that too many of these conversations engender.

And a big player in the blame game is us.  When we no longer want to participate in the process because, "I can't do anything", or, "It does not mater because, "they" will do what they want anyway" we as a people lose big time.

In my most skeptical moments I believe that we are getting exactly what we want.

That is the exact reason humanity has doomed itself should it remain in its present mentality.

Two minutes twenty seconds...it felt like a lot longer, I thought I had outdone you by a fair ways OCD, but that's what the clock read when I threw in the towel.  Blues Clues mixed with Third Way politics is how that struck me, but to each his own!  For many who ascribe to her politics, her explanations might be more appreciated and useful.  But its hard to lodge counterarguments with a Flash animation so I gave up.

We're doomed because I can't stand to watch bad acting a-la Barney the dinosaur and the Wiggles?

Gotta agree with that. From what I watched, her viewpoints are perfectly valid (although apparently it's just anti-everything). And I actually liked the animation, but reading it in the same tone of voice as a kindergarten teacher isn't going to win her any fans.

To answer pwaters3  question about Heritage breeds. Why them? They are self reproducing. Most of the tukeys sold can not reproduce naturally, that will not work without factory farming. Anyone know how to artifically inseminate a turkey? The same with other poultry. The goal is to produce a self reproducing animal that will provide the meat and eggs that you need. It is all about balance with nature.

boulderbrewer is right, with non-self propagating food supplies we are at the mercy of the big corporations. Everything will belong to Monsanto eventually, as nothing will remain that has not been infected with their patented DNA. They're even patenting PIGS!
It'll kinda be like Demolition Man where everything is TACO BELL, except in our case it will be MONSANTO.
