It was Lonnie "Bo" Pilgrim that took our jobs. You know, the very person that was George W. Bush's largest campaign contributor when he ran for governor of Texas. The very same George W. Bush that appointed the judge presently presiding over the bankruptcy proceedings of Pilgrim's Pride. Oh, and it was a Republican governor, Jindal, that put up $50 million of Louisiana taxpayer's money to buy the Farmerville plant. Maybe those of us in Arkansas need a Republican to bail us out.
