Beef Magazine Didn't Like The Results Of Their NAIS Poll!Submitted by E. Oregon 4 Ron on Sat, 06/13/2009 - 14:18
And they would like the poll to show that cow-calf producers want it! (We don't!)
I received this notice this morning from a warrior in the Anti-NAIS battle. :-)
"Morning~~~ If you are tired of the flawed NAIS, take one more swing at it.
Beef Magazine is running a NAIS poll and asking producers to vote for Mandatory/ Voluntary/ or Scrap NAIS. Lets take the time to show them a real anti NAIS movement. Please log on and vote at: http://beefmagazine.com/ Please pass this on to a concerned friend."
So---there ya go, 'concerned friend'! Let's show these Corporate Ag Entities that we do not want mandatory NAIS!
They just want the Beef Magazine subscribers to vote! (Corporate AG entities and Sheeple)
BEEF DAILY 6/18/09
"In case you have missed it, BEEF is currently hosting a poll on the homepage asking the question, “Should USDA’s National Animal Identification System (as currently proposed) be mandatory, voluntary or scrapped?” With 29,634 votes, at last count, the poll indicates an overwhelming 75% vote for scrapping the proposed plan. However, these polling results don’t necessarily mesh with our regular BEEF readers. Past surveys of BEEF readership have pretty consistently shown that proponents and opponents are 50-50 on this program.
It has come to my attention that a very motivated sector of the anti-NAIS movement has been encouraging members to vote in this poll in favor of scrapping the proposal. Many of these organizations come from outside our regular beef industry readership. While I’m thrilled that so many individuals want to participate in this online dialogue about NAIS, I sincerely hope that this poll represents the views and opinions of the dedicated BEEF readership.
I encourage everyone on the BEEF Daily mailing list to head on over to the poll and vote. And, while we’re at it, why don’t we discuss the pros and cons of this program in the comments section of this blog post? I would love to hear your thoughts in this open dialogue where all opinions matter. Thanks for your participation. I look forward to an honest debate about an important issue."
