The law is on the side of the bad guys. After all it was written by lawyers.

Why is it necessary to keep showing a killer police mug shot? If you need a picture why not show the dead victim, 12-year-old Ray Humphrey Junior. The least we see of this scum the better.

Haha I feel like your giving me one of those "it depends on what your definition of the word is is" defenses. I'll admit this, you got the "not gonna take me down" spirit of a politician caught in a pickle. Unfortunately the integrity of a politician comes with it.

Polygamy is more natural in Nature then Monogamy. (Science & Nature) There is NO homosexual species in nature It would be between consenting adults It is a Religious custom in some religions (1st Amendment)- in the Constitution (nothing in constitution about gay marriage) So that would make it more NATURAL and Legal then the recent ruling.

New president of the Illinois Pork Producers Association educates

1 year, 4 months ago by Jim Dewey

Producers are continuing to try to educate consumers about how pigs are raised

Illinois Pork Producer Todd Dail is the newly elected president of the
Illinois Pork Producers Association (IPPA). In light of more and more buyers
requiring changes in housing of pigs, Dail said, they are continuing to try
to educate consumers about how pigs are raised and why certain methods are favored over others. "We're still trying to explain to consumers that the
reason we raise pigs the way we do is, it's better on the pigs," he said.
Raising pigs outside in weather like we have had this winter, Dail said "is
not only hard on the producers, it's hard on the pigs."

Dail noted that some of that consumer education is funded through the Pork
Checkoff. He said the IPPA participates in advertising and they put on
events to promote pork to consumers. On the producer side, Dail said, "We
fund projects for research to improve our production even better that it is
now."

Dail says there is still a market for farmers who produce a small number of
hogs on their farms, but he says it's "such a much smaller market that it
doesn't work well to feed the world." And even though some countries have
placed limits on U S pork because of the way it is produced, Dail says
exports prove the U S product is superior. He said, "I think it's just over
25 percent of the pigs that we raise in the U S get exported to other
countries.
