Butterball Turkey Plant Closing - 349 people are joining the ranks of the unemployed.
Carolina-based Butterball announced it was shutting down its Longmont facility at the end of the year, blaming high grain and fuel costs that had made its westernmost production plant no longer financially viable.

But what I do like is... that I live in a country... where you and I can make that decision for ourselves. I like that I live in a country where I can pick up Hustler magazine... read it if I want... or throw it in the trash, if that's where I think it belongs. Or better yet I can express my opinion by not buying it. I like that right. I care about it. And you should care about it, too... because we live in a free country. We say that a lot, but sometimes we forget what that means, so listen again. We live in a free country. That is a powerful idea. That's a magnificent way to live.

So go back in that room... where you are free to think whatever you want to think... about Larry Flynt and Hustler magazine. But then ask yourselves if you want to make that decision for the rest of us... because the freedom that everyone in this room enjoys... is, in a very real way, in your hands. If we start throwing up walls against what some of us think is obscene... we may wake up one morning and realize... that walls have been thrown upin places we never expected... and we can't see anythingor... do anything. And that's not freedom. That is not freedom. So, be careful. Thank you."

Re: Butterball Turkey Plant Closing - 349 people are joining the ranks of the unemployed.
Mr. Obama strikes again vis-a-vis high grain and fuel prices.

Mr. Obama's insane policies based on fraudulent "science" regarding so-called anthropogenic global warming have lead to massive government subsidies with borrowed taxpayer dollars of the ethanol industry which has driven corn prices through the roof.
Fuel and energy costs have gone through the roof as well because of Mr. Obama's intense hatred of fossil fuel (which provides this country with over 90% of our energy) and his resulting anti-energy polices such as shutting down coal production in West Virginia, shutting down coal-fired plants around the nation, refusal to issue permits in the Gulf oil drilling region, refusal to build the Canadian XL pipeline, and his myriad other anti-energy policies.

After all, Mr. Obama stated before his election that "Under my plan ... electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket." And they have. Mr. Obama's energy roosters have finally gone home to roost, and Longmont's turkeys have gone too. Just another consequence of Mr. Obama's anti-business, anti-energy, anti-economic and quite frankly, anti-American policies. Elections do have consequences. Remember that if you're inclined to vote for Mr. Obama for four more years in 2012. Our nation won't survive that if he's elected again.

Re: Butterball Turkey Plant Closing - 349 people are joining the ranks of the unemployed.
Butterball was always alot higher priced and lower quality than other brands. BTW if fuel prices fell the oil industry would lay off people. If grain prices fell farmers would lay off people.
The point is that the plant couldn't compete. Other plants are still running profitably with high grain and oil prices so it must not be that.

So what happens when oil falls in price and starts laying off people. You gonna blame that on Obama too? Because if you blame him for these jobs leaving it would be hypocritical to blame him for oil job losses when the prices fall. Or grain price falls causing farmers to lay off workers.

But you will do it. Im sure.

Normally, I would feel VERY sorry for those people being told that they are losing their jobs just before Christmas.

However, the place was full of muslims and they butchered the turkeys by "halal" method which means that they were consecrated to Allah as a sacrifice. Essentially that means that every Butterball turkey eaten at Thanksgiving this year had already been dedicated to the moon god instead of the One to Whom we THOUGHT we were giving thanks! The thread was presented here by, I believe, KOffEE and it was right around Thanksgiving, either just before or just afterward.

So, I'd say Karma bit you in the old gluteus maximus, right before the Christian holiday which you've been trying to outlaw. LOL!

But you have to go back in that room and make some decisions and there is one thing I want to make very clear to you before you do. I'm not trying to convince you that you should like what Larry Flynt does. I don't like what he does. But what I do like is... that I live in a country... where you and I can make that decision for ourselves. I like that I live in a country where I can pick up Hustler magazine... read it if I want... or throw it in the trash, if that's where I think it belongs. Or better yet I can express my opinion by not buying it. I like that right. I care about it. And you should care about it, too... because we live in a free country. We say that a lot, but sometimes we forget what that means, so listen again. We live in a free country. That is a powerful idea. That's a magnificent way to live. But there is a price for that freedom, which is that sometimes... we have to tolerate things that we don't necessarily like. So go back in that room... where you are free to think whatever you want to think... about Larry Flynt and Hustler magazine. But then ask yourselves if you want to make that decision for the rest of us... because the freedom that everyone in this room enjoys... is, in a very real way, in your hands. If we start throwing up walls against what some of us think is obscene... we may wake up one morning and realize... that walls have been thrown upin places we never expected... and we can't see anythingor... do anything. And that's not freedom. That is not freedom. So, be careful. Thank you."

Re: Butterball Turkey Plant Closing - 349 people are joining the ranks of the unemployed.
Butterball was always alot higher priced and lower quality than other brands. BTW if fuel prices fell the oil industry would lay off people. If grain prices fell farmers would lay off people.
The point is that the plant couldn't compete. Other plants are still running profitably with high grain and oil prices so it must not be that.

when a country is greatly disoriented —as it is currently in America with regards to polarization on many issues— that it’s easy for the Government —and other powers that be— to manipulate the public with lies and deceit. This is not a new strategy, but one that has been implemented in this country —as well as others— for centuries. It’s specifically designed to control the masses by generating and perpetuating confusion. in the past the truth about certain national incidents were not found out and revealed to the public for years. Now, thanks to the internet, it takes only a few months to discover the policies and activities of our Government and mega-corporate empires —that are criminal to say the least.

[...]Customer service representatives from Butterball, one of America's most popular Turkey brands, confirmed to WND that the company's whole turkeys are without being labeled as such slaughtered according to Islamic "halal" standards.

[...]Multiple phone representatives at Butterball confirmed the turkeys are slaughtered according to halal standards, and one named Tracy (she declined to give her last name) further confirmed the words of Islamic dedication are spoken over the birds. None, however, could explain exactly how the slaughters are performed.

The Robert Mugabe model of the destruction and seizure of privately owned farms and ranches.

Remember, Obama passed his "rural america initiative" a year or so ago in order to gain control of the food source and put Monsanto in the drivers seat.

The outlawing of heirloom seeds and home gardens is right around the corner.

I know this for a fact. In most of the poultry processing plants in Arkansas that provided the native population with work ,during the Bush years imported all illegal workers, because they didn't want to adhere to workplace safety.clappa
