Recently a federal judge ruled in favor of the plaintiff in a case of “smell pollution” against Smithfield Packing. Smithfield Packing has decided that if this continues, they will pull out of North Carolina. Hog farms all over the state will be shut down. It WILL lead to a financial collapse of Duplin County, then NC, and onto the rest of America. No, I am NOT exaggerating - let me explain.
No Farms = No Food
First of all, if these lawsuits don’t get overturned, it will be open season on ALL farmers. Don’t like the smell of that pesticide? Sue the farmer. Roosters crowing too early in the morning? Sue the farmer. A fly landed on your food?…well you get the picture.
Smithfield Packing has now let it slip that they are looking at taking their little ball and leaving North Carolina. If these guys pull out, we’re all screwed.
Thousands of hog farms will go under. Hundreds of thousands of people will loose their jobs and NC will lose a fortune in revenue.
It won't stop with the hog farms. Smithfield packing also has an impact on grain and crops. How do you think they feed the pigs? Then you've got all of those truck drivers that transport supplies to the hog farms. Not to mention all the people who are employed by processing the meat. The domino effect will be numberless.
Food prices will sky rocket. (Do you really want to buy all your hog meat from China or Mexico?) And since Smithfield Packing contributes a hefty amount in taxes, government finances will plummet (if the don't try raising tax fees first.)
Look at Venezuela and what they are going through. That’s our future. Riots, looting, and mass violence will fill the streets.
A local farmer owned a few hog houses and some land outside of the city limits of Beulaville, NC. Just like virtually everyone else in this county, he was a farmer. For years no one had an issue with this.
The majority of the people in the area raise some kind of livestock. (Cows, Hogs, Chickens, Horses, etc.) And like anything, there are pros and cons. On the right day with the wind coming from the right direction you can smell those hog houses. Other than that, you could be on the next property over and not even be able to tell. It really isn't a big deal.
Smithfield Packing bought out the hog industry from Murphy-Browns here in NC. They are now nationwide and even have hog operations in Mexico. They are currently discussing China or Japan being their next home.
These guys pay more in taxes in NC than any other outfit. They are the main buyer of pork in NC. Every hog farmer/company sells them their hogs. You can’t go to the grocery store here in the East and not find Smithfield hams, ribs, etc. And now thanks to a federal judge they have to pay a 50 million dollar lawsuit over an occasional smell.
If We Burn You Burn With Us
The very idiots that filed the lawsuit in the first place will now be dropped in the same boat when the farms go. They will need those millions, because that’s what it will take to get a gallon of milk.
“If we burn, you burn with us!” - the Hunger Games
So this raises two questions:
- Are you prepared to lose our farms?
- Can you fight off mass numbers?
Just remember were all connected one way or another. We would like to encourage everyone not to only vote and be proactive in their community, but to get trained and prepare for the worst. (Click here to sign the petition in favor of hog farms.)
Prepare for the Worst - Hope for the Best
If you are planning on riding out this event at home and you're set with supplies, then good on you. But can you hold a mass amount of starving people at bay?
Tackleberry Solutions is the regional leader in online military tactical training for civilians. We would like to invite everyone to “get out and train”.
Tackleberry Solutions has created an online course that will help you with that issue. While the program is geared to stopping an unconstitutional breach from a SWAT team, the same tactics work against mass numbers of unprepared and starving “zombies”.
Basically, if you can take on a well armed and trained team of guys, than the “zombies” will be a breeze.
