Prisons' new ban on pork draws ire of...

"The prison system first took pork off the menu in 2009 after, in a money-saving attempt, it closed the pig farm and processing facility it operated to provide meat for inmates.
Last year, after lobbying by pork producers, the system added pork rib patties back to the menu twice a month."
So they pull pork off the menu due to costs. Put it back on due to pig farmers wanting state bucks. And then when someone threatens a lawsuit, rather than spending taxpayer dollars defending in court a meal they serve 2 times a month, they re-pull (Mmmm re-pulled pork) it off the menu.
So why is this a problem?
Farming hogs involves not only people like me but my friends who work at hog slaughter facilities and small butcher shops and stores. The State of Ohio is a BIG consumer as the prison system is the biggest agency, so if demand goes down it affects the hog prices I can get for my hogs.

I pay taxes and I don't expect that the State of Ohio will stab me, my kids and family in the back by playing games with the pork market. This hurts my industry, and all this is done to appease Muslims who often hate America and cause problems in the prisons by demanding righs and privelages.

The state is under no obligation to buy hogs or support any industry.

And again-twice a MONTH they served pork and you want MY taxes to pay for attorneys to fight for 2 lousy meals a month? Hell NO!

My question is, why didn't Jewish prisoners agitate to ban pork years ago? They don't/can't eat it either. Or are there no Jewish prisoners?

I'll add to my original position of if-you-can't-do-the-time-don't -do-the-crime...if you decide to do the crime, shut the hell up about your conditions.

Then why is the state of Ohio under "obligation" to appease Muslims?

Pork producers like me are the one's who will suffer in the end.

That's all folks!

If they don't eat the pork then let them starve. They have been handed too many perks already in this country. Who the hell are they coming in this and other countries demanding their own courts etc. They are brutal,pigs, with no regard for their own families and women.
Their plan is to take over the world, one street at a time. Read about it and your jaw will drop, how persistent they are trying to conform the world to their demented thinking. France, England,Detroit, Michigan.....they are everywhere. Like fleas. Wherever they settle they infest a neighborhood. People move away, allowing MORE of THEM to infiltrate the system.
Where isn't the govt stopping this crap? Oh! They're too busy lining their own pockets for fame greedandd power.
Yuk
Meanwhile I can't even afford a pair of pants....

You are right Porky. Its time to stand up to the Muslim hordes that are taking over this country and turning the prisons of Ohio into one big Mosque!

What's next? Banning swine from the Ohio State Fair because Muslims could be offended? Banning pork from public schools because Muslims don't like it? Jews don't eat pork either but they never caused these problems like the Muslims.

The Swine Industry and Pork Producers are a part, not only of Ohio, but of our culture, a culture that deserves to be respected, not marginalized to appease people that hate our culture and seek to impose horrible Sharia wherever they go.

What scares me is they put it on the ballots to vote on it. WHY would this country even CONSIDER that?

Something's wrong in Schaboigan?

Does anyone have a pair of pants for me?

They've already done that in British schools. No pork is served and only halal beef is permitted.
Look to Britain. They're about ten years ahead of where the US will be unless we stop this nonsense now.

How big an operation do you have? Next time you are nutting could you put 6 pair in the fridge and let me know. I want to take them to a council meeting and when the council members cower to the mayor I can pass the bag of balls around to the council members so they will have a pair.

Who were they appeasing in 2009 when they eliminated pork?

The State is under no obligation to appease Muslims and in this case I do not see it that way. Taking away 2 lousy meals a month to save thousands of dollars in legal fees and to eliminate a product they only added under pressure from a lobby is in the best interest of the tax payers.

Sharia law says a thief must have a hand cut off and adulterers are commonly stoned to death. Therefore if some MooSlum is in jail for thief and he has a bunch of illegitimate kids in the getto you just say to him "either you eat what we feed you or we'll cut off your hand than stone you to death. Hopefully they will take the later option.

Why give them a choice? There are plenty of stones.

Religious hypocrisy? Say it aint so!

To hell with that- we have one law for everyone and one justice system.

If some orthodox Jew wanted all shrimp off the menu at Ohio prisons I am not going to be worried about apeasing them, I am going to be more worried about my tax dollars going to give those in prison shrimp cocktails!

Didn't you read post 32, by George! Sharia has already banned pork in parts of Europe and now the same thing is coming here. Time to wake up and say "NO" to Sharia in America.

We are spending millions dollars a day fighting in Afganistan, God knows how much for Homeland Security, FBI, NSA, CIA etc etc. as well as the fact that we are overwhelmingly a Christian nation would lead one to believe that those who think that Sharia law would be established here in the US either do not know what Shiria law is or they are paranoid kooks.
