I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. I know how hard it is for the former Pilgrim growers to think Merry Christmas this year. At this point you don't see anything merry about it, I know. Hopefully, things will look better during the coming year. Just keep your head up and keep on keeping on. Somehow it will all work out, maybe not the way we want it to, but it will work out. Who knows maybe Bo was visited by the "Ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future". If anyone needed to experience the "Christmas Carol" Bo and the execs of Pilgrim's Pride did. It is my prayer that all of the former Pilgrim growers who have been treated so badly will have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I will continue to pray for you and pray for a good end to this madness. It may sound a little strange but I think we should all say a little prayer for all of the lawyers who are working on the suits for the growers that they might have what it takes to continue the fight for the growers and what is RIGHT. May God Bless You.

Just reread these posts. Evidently the ghosts did not visit Bo. We are still sitting here worrying how we will pay bills and live. It is not any better. There are a lot involved in the lawsuits, but I don't see any daylight there. I think if it ever goes to court, the growers will win, but what will that mean. Appeal and more appeals. How can this be tied up in the courts for so long. But that is what Pilgrim wants. How Bo Pilgrim can sit back and let this happen, I do not understand. So much for his Christian image as far as I am concerned. I really thought JBS would want to see the suits settled. I thought they would want to keep their image clean. But maybe they are no better. I may not have any money but when I can't sleep at night it is because I worry about paying bills. It is not my guilt bothering me. Sorry, I just had to sound off.

Besides his christianity, I'm starting to doubt that Bo is even human.

Bo Pilgrim is a normal everyday cooperate executive, money, power, greed, control and the hell with the people under him, it has nothing to do with christianity, morals or beliefs, it is about getting to the top and money, power and greed, and control. This example of cooperate executive is what has ruined the work force of our great country. Big cooperate executives are nothing but playground bullies, they will squash you, beat you, destroy you on their way to the top. Pilgrims Pride pays their labors minimum wage for doing dangerous jobs, PP pays their contract growers just enough to accept another flock. Poultry intergators have stated in Poultry Times that there is not alot of profit in chicken, but i beg to differ when you see the executives like Bo, and Don "Jackass" Jackson and the Tyson family making millions per year for their own pockets.
