Re: supporting details

I am totally reading everything i can on that....... and looking for confirmation on that issue ......... it is slow coming for such a shocking headline...  And it seemed to have a very limited amount of researched information..... who shipped, where was the processing done. How was it mixed in.  Packaged trash or   proposed for consumption??

 

I wonder if this isnt one of those very important issues that may not fit the University system's political agenda..... China being our posterchild of socialism's success(our only clip of a picture).   Pouring US economy into china for decades now to drag them out of the dark ages.  This is a big black eye if it is true..   If it is a staged stunt or can be made into one, time will tell.

 

But I have noticed and waited for ......... the pictures of dead hogs being dozed into the ground and they haven't been prominent.  In fact there has been very little verification on ASF claims in china  ---- no verification in our press any way...  fill me in if I am missing something.........

Re: supporting details

Hey SW, JMO but China is harder up than many of us realize. I suppose they butcher them ASF hogs and can`t eat that pork faster than it`ll go bad, so if they can pawn it off ...maybe to American Chinese restaurants?  they`ll do that at probably 10 cents a pound.  But, one day the sows are gone, feeder pigs gone, market hogs gone.  And the US is the only game in town...however if ASF ever made it to US shores by accident or on purpose, it would devastate every porcine animal on this continent.

 

I think it is true or Bloomberg wouldn`t touch it.

Re: supporting details

The cynic/conspiracy theorist in me has this scenario worked out.

Mob "boss" was recently knocked off.  Rumor has it the mob controls the docks.

Somebody didn't get paid off or is simply ticked off.

Feds are tipped off and seize the pork.

Happy Spring!!

Re: supporting details

agreed........ 

 

This should have been a blockbuster news item carried over and over..... but it will probably enhance a point politically for big don.  So it got killed....... and bloomberg made a "mistake"...... and forgot to toe the political line.

 

IMO

 

The silence in followup supports my opinion.

 

is76cat ---- great comment..... I didn't think this had a chance for the big screen, but you might have the formula.
