Thanks for the propaganda. Please pass along the testimonials from the hogs so we all can see how much happier they are in your CAFO.

DRB, STICK IT, YOU sound just like George Bush. Maybe you should get out of a city and enjoy country life, you probably don't even know what a hog is.

In a letter-writing campaign, you'd think it would be good practice to make sure other letters using the same canned messages haven't been printed in the paper within the past couple weeks. Rehashing the talking points verbatim just reads like propaganda.

Herbert, I do live in the country, and I know BS when I read it. A warm fuzzy letter from the past President of the pork industry is nothing more than propaganda. The point is that he would say just about anything to make the pork industry sound good. Obviously you don't understand sarcasm.

To 'friendly tip', since when is using the same messages not acceptable? It happens all the time. The media thrives off propoganda. Why do you think they encourage citizens to write on these stupid message boards? Besides, if you don't like it blame the Star. They printed it.

No, I'm not a member of PETA but I'm also smart enough to know that a letter written by the past president of the pork industry will hardly be open and honest concerning CAFO's.

The best is a pork tenderloin. Season them with a little Creole on bothsides then toss that flesh on a hot grill. 17 minutes per side and you're done.
Excellent!!
