    Some of the farms that are being sued have neighbors moving in/building right next to the hog farms and then complain (and sue) about the farms. Seriously, if you don’t want to smell the hogs, cattle, sheep, chickens, etc etc — then don’t build your house next to the farm.

    Government has made it easy for greedy opportunists cheered on by environmentalist agitators to get rich off our businesses with legalized extortion. That is how environmentalists shut down our country using Big Government oppression and make it impossible for businesses to grow and prosper. Environmentalists would rather have the American people eat expensive pork imported from China and get rich and famous from extorting honest businesses than let us buy inexpensive food.

      Might there be some Mosques nearby? How about Synagogues? They don’t seem to have an affinity for hogs.

    Many of these comments demonstrate a complete lack of understanding about the industry. These are many low-income families that cannot afford to move, in multigenerational homes, many of whom do not have health insurance. People in the vicinity of pork producers go on to contract asthma, respiratory illnesses, and a host of other diseases. “Industrial pig waste contains a host of toxic substances: ammonia, methane, hydrogen sulfide, carbon monoxide, cyanide, phosphorous, nitrates and heavy metals. In addition, the waste nurses more than 100 microbial pathogens that can cause illness in humans, including salmonella, cryptosporidium, streptocolli and girardia. Each gram of hog shit can contain as much as 100 million fecal coliform bacteria.” The practices of the pork industry have no means to deal with copious amounts of waste, nor have they tried to dispose of it in a suitable manor. The waste goes into “waste lagoons” which leach into the surrounding water supply. Should the corporation (which is not even American based) be allowed to harm the health of thousands of Americans? Should the corporation’s rights be protected over the people?
