    I definitely agree, that is not what God intended.

    I wish more people were aware of why they are able to get a dozen eggs for $1 or less at the grocery.

    But I also wish MorningStar Farms would have gone to small local farmers to get eggs from humanely raised animals. I think THAT would have made a more complete statement. [​IMG]
