Holy cow! I thought this was a joke. Who could have imagined this position taken by a responsible government?
In 2015, California banned the sale of conventionally raised eggs, and in 2016, Massachusetts voters passed a ballot measure that bans the sale of conventionally raised eggs, pork, and veal in the state beginning in 2022. A Cornell University analysis found that the California law caused an 18% increase in egg prices for Californians.
The laws were promoted by the vegan advocacy group Humane Society of the United States, which has an expressed agenda to eventually eliminate animal agriculture.

I was watching a college basketball game on television, when the long parade of commercials started. One of the first was an advertisement for Hellman’s Mayonnaise where they were promoting the fact that they use ‘cage free’ eggs.
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot! Cage Free eggs? Does anybody really care that the eggs used to make that white, creamy substance came from happy hens? Is this a feature that differentiates one commodity condiment from another? Where does this feature of using eggs from happy hens land on Maslow’s hierarchy of nutritional needs?
My father used to refer to the television as the ‘idiot box’… I think I finally understand.
