lol is so funny, and living in his own fantasy world. As I have said, Agenda 21 is another topic, but does unfortunately have threads into food resources. Bo, for the most part, is a different subject. Pilgrims Pride, just a piece of the puzzle. Go ahead and make fun, laugh it up. By the way, I do have a job, I do work, I have worked all my life, I have been both employee, and employer. I am a son, I am a father. I want my kids, and grandkids to have the same opportunities, that I and my forfathers had, and this absolutely profane buisness environment being promoted by large greedy corporations, is totally unnacceptable to any and all but the most profane minded, greedy, uncaring, people that now find themselves leading so many businesses. The big difference is that I am not blind, nor stupid, nor afraid to try and wake others up to injustices, lies, deflections, and I am absolutely not a lemming that just goes along blindly with the crowd. I have the guts to look around at all the wrong, and am willing to resist that which is evil. Laugh on, but remember, that which you sow, that WILL you also reap, good, or bad. Laugh on, oh blind one, laugh on. All people recieve the reward of their true labors. I'll bet that statment will fly right past you. Have a good day.

Ole Gimp. Most people don't really want to know about the dangers that are facing them, they just want to be blissfully ignorant of what is truly happening in this country. All that you have said, I believe is true, proven by my own research, and observations. Now, back to the thread.
The El Dorado farmers will be in settlement talks in Little Rock, Arkansas, next friday, a week from today. Place and time still undisclosed.

Proven by your own research, impressive, you forgot to include the aliens found at the crash site in Roswell, New Mexico they have been coaching Bo & Pilgrims on how to take over the worlds food suply. I think you have been watching too much of the old X-Files. Everyone that disagrees with you is not blissfully ignorant, we just have a bit more business sense then you. From the way many of you talk it is evident that you do not have a good understanding of business and how the real world operates. Your just a spec in the business world. Stuff like this is minor and has been going on in every industry. Your just now getting your first taste of it where everyone else is saying old news to your comments. You might come out better chasing Obama than Pilgrims. Obama has put us into more trouble than Pilgrims Pride ever could have. Obama is the real enemy of America, not Pilgrim, Con-Agra or any other US Business.

I agree with you. Where was all the moaning and complaining about the company before all of the cut backs? When your in bed with somebody you guys have to take the good with the bad. You had the good, now unfortunately the bad has hit you. My sympathy, but everyone's job and business is impacted in the same way by big business. Like it is said above you are just now getting a tase of it for the first time.

Mr Mt. Pleasant, you can rename yourself all you want trying to make it look as if you have a consensus of people agreeing with you, but you once again have failed. I along with other business men are fighting and will continue to fight against business practices that are founded in and on humanistic immoral standards. True business standards that are moral are under attack, but not lost. As long as men and women seek the ways of the god of this world, and follow his/her principles, then business as usual will be that which you are now defending. Choose you this day whom you will serve. As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord Jesus Christ. The Holy Bible, God's Holy Word, tells us how to do all things, even how to operate a business.

Rename myself? Your an even bigger idiot than I originally thought. Because people agree with me, you want to imply that I have renamed myself. Is this how you bible thumpers do? Preach your BS down peoples throats until you force them to believe your crap. Please... If you were moral you would have gotten out of the chicken business a long time ago, but bible thumper you was not thinking about that when things were good were you? Now that things are bad you want to point blame. Look in the mirror. The idiot you see in front of yourself is the same idiot that is now trying to raise sympathy for his own stupidity. Your problem is not everyone is as stupid as you, so we do not believe the line of BS you are trying to put out to the public. Your not going to win anything and if you do I doubt it will be in your lifetime or the next couple of lifetimes. Remember the Golden Rule, "He whom has the Gold makes the rules." It's no wonder your topix name is Bankruptfarmer, in a hidden location, LOL.

Seems that you struck the bullseye on that comment, bankruptfarmer. I have not heard so much frothy anger in a while. X-files may fool some people, but most just see right through him. There are still some legitimate moral business men in this country, but you can bet that x-files is not one of them.

Well again, not surprised by a bible thumping hypocrite. When people disagree with you, you like to launch attacks and raise questions about the other party. Yes, you are a real Christian aren't you? Sorry bankrupt, but I do operate my businesses ethically and can account for every penny in and out. Like it was said above, "Where was all the moaning and groaning when times were good?" Only when you hit a low did your true colors come out. In business this happens and it is unfortunate for you, but topix won't change this and the court efforts you all are posting about wont cause any change in anyone's lifestyle. Do I think Pilgrims made some business errors along the way? Sure, all businesses do. However when you own the company you do what is best for you and that includes taking risk that can either increase your net worth or cause you to lose it. Employees/growers and all others unfortunately have no say so in this matter. You are just along for the ride. The ride was good for a while and now it is over. Sorry for your loss, but that's the game.

If anyone wants to take the time to go back and read previous posts, you will find that I have already addressed such talk as, not complaining when times were good. Times were never "good" under Pilgrims, and I did not know about topics at that time. Every farmer that did complain to the "Company" was met with sever punishments as those who are still in business, know only too well. It is easy to make fun of those whose situations you have no true knowledge of, or chose not to want to have any true knowledge of. It makes me wonder why you attack the farmers so strongly, unless you have a dog in this fight. The farmers are the ones who are the victims here, not Pilgrims. The El Dorado farmers were in the top 5% of the growers in the Nation, among all poultry integrators. They did nothing wrong, yet they have paid the ultimate price for the greed of Pilgrims Managers and shareholders.
