Americans who live anywhere near hog factories or factory farms are about to lose another critical round in the fight against these atrocious monsters of barbaric progress. The EPA simply wants to collect information about the the raw shit cesspools where the waste from thousand of pigs is stored before it's sprayed on the overloaded fields around or trucked out somewhere. These cesspools are considered high tech by the industry. That's like saying black is white. The EPA, ACCORDING TO THIS ATTACHED ARTICLE IS BACKING DOWN AS A RESULT OF INDUSTRY PRESSURE.PEOPLE MUST ACT.
Any home built in the country has an underground septic system or you would not get a building permit. This septic system is for the use of one family consisting of 2 to 6 people generally. So if we need a septic system for a single family, don't you think you need a an underground septic system for 5,000 pigs? Any small town of 5000 people would have a water treatment facility. Why not pigs? "Oh that would be too expensive says the industry we just want to do the most economical things so we can make lots of money with minimal investment." Of course, it would be too expensive but that does not stop them promoting a dumb system and trying to tell us that it's state of the art?. That's about throwing lots of shit on the wall and some of it will stick
What if each family could simply build a little pond on the front lawn, dump all their waste there until it almost fills up and then spray some on their lawn so it does not overflow? Anybody want to move into this neighborhood? How about moving out of this neighborhood? You are not selling anything once those hog factory cesspools spread their noxious odors throughout the neighborhood and yes, folks, the region. Have you heard of ammonia clouds that travel for miles and miles and land on unsuspecting neigherborhoods, maybe yours?
This is not a new problem. People have been fighting this for 15 years in some states and getting virtually no where. These are ordinary Americans, many of whom are local farmers who have protested and got nowhere. The system works against them and they have no power. They are definitely part of the 99% group and the Occupy movement because they share the same frustration with big business and government that serves the rich and powerful and steps on ordinary folks like they don't matter, all in the name of corporate greed
