Americans aren't even qualified to gut our own chickens anymore.

We have to ship them halfway around the world for that.

Are they actually fucking serious? Like the poster above said, as if the chickens haven't been through enough! Not that they actually give a shit. The logic has officially left the building.

and what happens when we don't get along with china anymore and no longer have the facilities to slaughter our own chickens?

we already cannot smelt our own metal, make our own computer chips, hell we can't make jack shit here anymore..

Re: Now we're going to fly our chickens back and forth from China for processing because it's cheaper that way
This is so wrong on many different levels. It's unbelievable what is happening. I just can't imagine what pollutants will be found in that meat. Ugh.

Even if you don't care about the chickens, how is this cost effective at all? It doesn't make any sense.

It's already happening with frozen chicken though. Always read the labels.

I don't eat meat very often, but when I do buy chicken, I always make sure it's fresh, and labeled "Hatched, Raised, and Processed in the U.S."

Well the only positive is that lots of sorry ass leeching illegals will be out of a job. Hopefully they take their low IQ hairy greasy asses back S of the US border. Without their chicken factory job their WIC, food stamps and HUD housing won't go as far. Of course the fucked up gov in this country may just increase their welfare to cover whatever they were making at the chicken processing farm though. It would not surprise me at all if that happened.

 Quoting: Ghetto Monk



I believe its going to come back to America,. But in the form of robotics. Manufacturing and any processing will become cheap once automation goes full steam ahead. Shipping will be the huge cost factor at that point.

And maybe before that some smart person brings this stuff back to America so it creates employment, some wealth and prepares for the inevitable tech paradigm shift.



phhhffff~ processing our chickens in china,.. Wowzer people better wake up!

They are sending pigs to China to be cut up and packaged for our tables. None of it makes sense but I suppose if you are in the meat packing business you can't compete with low wages elsewhere.

Buy locally. Search for those who advertise cruelty free and buy many pounds at a time if you have any money saved.

Makes perfect sense to me if you think about it.
China is polluted with all the factories there.
The food produced also is being poisoned, toxic environment with heavy metals.

Why buy another countries cleaner livestock and process it at home?

Bait and switch, people... We getting the tainted meat produced in China.
China now has unpolluted meat to provide the country.
I would do it to us to if you let me.
