America's Socialist Chickens

Greetings from red, rural Texas. While the local newspaper (shopper, actually) is well to the right of Mussolini, we do have a local Enews that provides balance. Here are a couple of my pieces that they have published lately.



As NPR has reported, our U.S. government is paying millions of dollars so that flocks of chickens can lead a life of leisure. They won't tell us how much they are spending. They won't tell us how many chickens there are. They won't even tell us where the chickens are. Millions of chickens are living off of our tax dollars.

As chickens are wont to do, these hens have been laying eggs every day or two. For many years, most of these eggs were not even used by the government. They were turned into feed for other animals. At our expense.

Mad? Well let's think about it for a minute. Why would our government do this?

Because, it turns out, eggs are the most crucial ingredient in many vaccines. Now, pharmaceutical companies can make arrangements to buy eggs for the vaccines that are needed on a regular basis (such as childhood vaccines for mumps, measles, etc., yearly flu vaccines, shingles vaccines, and others). But every once in a while, a new disease pops up for which no plans have been made in advance, and consequently no eggs are available. Anthrax, a few years ago, and now COVID-19.
