Singer Carrie Underwood gets a Pack of Compassion Award for speaking out against Ag-Gag laws. But after she did so, Tennessee politician Andy Holt suggested she should “stick to singing.”
Perhaps Holt should stick to twiddling his thumbs, as his actions are indicative of someone who knows absolutely nothing about animal welfare. But still, he told WSMV the Ag-Gag bill he supports is in the best interest of the animals. In reality, the legislation is designed to shut down undercover videos that expose animal cruelty.
We need a greater focus on science education, throughout our education system. And I’d like to see citizenship and compassion get some classroom time. Maybe we can see more kids become elected officials later in life, who have a better background in these studies.
