You two ought to wait until the facts are known before you pass judgment. You have heard of innocent until proven guilty haven't you?

Seeing the gang signs posted on the victims FB pages, I doubt the victims were 100% innocent in what occurred. No one deserves to lose their lives or be shot and the shooter should definitely be prosecuted, but I have a feeling there is more to this story than just an angry man that decided to shoot to kill two people. I don't know the story and neither do most of the people in this judgmental…

thanks for the link. So often though, descriptions of studies lean toward their preferred outcome. 40% is very low correlation, and he even concludes "environmental" factors have much greater influence. He tries to separate that from social factors, but indeed social factors are a big part of it. Interesting they found no genetic link at all in women. I think the early childhood is big, which…

In a truly free society morality is only enforced by the state when there is a victim. Prostitution, gambling, and smoking weed have no victims, hence no crime. Murder, theft and statutory rape have victims, this is why they are crimes.

Tyson Foods Wins Bidding War for Hillshire Brands

1 year ago From Illinoisagconnection.com

It appears that Tyson Foods Inc. has won the bidding battle to buy Hillshire Brands Co., besting an offer from Pilgrim's Pride Corp. Terms were not available, according to reports. 

Pilgrim's Pride had offered $55 per share, or roughly $6.82 billion, for Chicago-based Hillshire last week, upping its offer after Tyson entered the bidding with an offer of $50 per share, or roughly $6.2 billion, for Hillshire on May 29.

Hillshire, the maker of Jimmy Dean sausage and Ball Park hot dogs, agreed last week to share information with Pilgrim's Pride and Tyson and hold separate discussions with both suitors regarding their unsolicited proposals.

Hillshire has been seen as a potential acquisition candidate for months as companies look for ways to boost their sales of branded foods, which often carry higher profit margins than commodity-focused items. Tyson and Pilgrim's Pride each handle meat processing and have some branded operations. Both have said they were attracted to Hillshire in part because of its presence in areas such as brand-name breakfast foods.

Tyson has already done smaller acquisitions over the past several months, including its January purchase of the assets of Michigan-based Bosco’s Pizza Co., a maker of stuffed breadsticks and frozen pizzas.

Pilgrim's Pride is 75-percent owned by Brazil’s JBS S.A., the world's largest meat company. An acquisition of Hillshire would allow it to expand further into retail products and to bring the U.S.-focused Hillshire products into international market
