    The demographics are wrong. These aren’t minority people struggling to survive.

    The rich Hogs getting fatter and it’s the poor working pigs getting slaughtered. Somebody is bringing home the bacon if they have a paycheck.

    It didn’t have to be this way, other nations were able to manage the pandemic instead of letting the disease spread freely. Scroll down a page in the link below and see what uncooperative people have down to their nations over the last 7 months (compressed to 3 minutes).

    Smithfield is owned by a Chinese group that lobbied the Trump Administration to force employees to keep working.

    Meatpackers are notoriously secretive, and it’s unclear how many of the nation’s plants are designed to ship carcasses to China.

    “Some of the plants would be companies that maybe own five or six pork plants, and they said in one of our small plants, we’re just going to do carcasses for China,” said Brett Stuart, the president of the consulting firm Global AgriTrends. “I don’t think any of them have really reported what they’ve done.”

    According to data collected by FERN, as of July 28 at 12pm ET, at least 528 meatpacking and food processing plants (372 meatpacking and 156 food processing) and 75 farms and production facilities have had confirmed cases of Covid-19. At least 48,248 workers (37,876 meatpacking workers, 5,240 food processing workers, and 5,132 farmworkers) have tested positive for Covid-19 and at least 191 workers (170 meatpacking workers, 14 food processing workers, and 7 farmworkers) have died.

    And if Moscow Mitch and his Merry Men have their way, ALL employers will be indemnified against lawsuits from the effects of forcing people to risk their lives working through the plague.

    Folks, you misunderstood – poor old Dad was the Plant Manager – not a line worker – but he still died under orders from Tiny.

    In other words, you died a meaningless and early death because of the Trump admins lies about a meat shortage and their refusal to test.

    We will NOT always have bacon, if the butchers are in the cemetery. (I do understand that is today’s point. Just wanted to be clear.)

    And as overheard at the funeral of a software engineer, “This might be a bad time, but did he ever mention anything about ‘Source Code’?”

    If Dad and other meat packers are dying, how does bacon production continue?

    Silly rabbits, it’s the “new green”, doncha know?

    Soylent Green is a win-win for everybody , and the meat plants are non-polluting and self-generating! After all, work sets them free!

    MAGA-Meat!
