So, I'm friends with some casual friend of MrsG. I honestly have no idea why/how I'm FB friends with this woman, because I don't even know if I've met her in real life. I'm guessing she sent me a request at some point that I just accepted because she's a friend of the wife.
Anyhow, this woman is pretty much perfectly typical DU underground material, and she posted a link this morning about the latest round of animal abuse at a factory farm. I get objecting to that, but then it turned into the inevitable soapbox about how everyone should eat organically. My wife chimed in and basically said, "yes, in a perfect world, everyone would be able to eat organically, but the cost is substantial. Organic food is a luxury for most people, and they shouldn't be guilted or preached to just because they're doing the best they can within their personal constraints.
A third party, who has also been participating, responded to MrsG with:
Interesting. I make $500 a month at my part time job. I am a student and am on food stamps, which just got cut. I manage to buy organic. Granted, I am single and have only myself to feed, but still, I buy it. It seems spendy at first, but in reality, it isn't. If you shop smart you save money with it.
