RFK Jr.: Hog farms bigger threat than Osama (barf alert)
Washington Times ^ | 2/4/2009 | Ralph Z. Hallow

Posted on 02/04/2009 6:18:24 PM PST by markomalley

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. on Wednesday said he thinks hog farmers are a greater threat to Americans than Osama bin Laden.

Mr. Kennedy, son of the the slain New York Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, is an environmental law attorney who was testifying before a House Judiciary subcomittee when Rep. Steve King, Iowa Republican, asked him if a quotation attributed to him in 2002 about hog farmers representing a greater threat than the leader of al Qaeda was accurate.

"I don't know if that [quotation] is accurate, but I believe it and I support it," said Mr. Kennedy, who has been involved in a vigorous legal effort against the meat industry for some years, arguing that manure and other products associated with large livestock producers emit toxic wastes that threaten the environment.

Mr. Kennedy also has said that a single hog consignment can put out more pollution than a city of a million people.

He has also said that every public official in North Carolina has been corrupted by the pork industry. He cited as evidence an editorial in a Raleigh newspaper, although he also said there may be some exceptions.

Another stunned scion of liquor importer Kennedy pipes up.

He must be referring to the “hog farm” in Washington DC. If so, he may be right.

“Mr. Kennedy has said that he plans to go after all large farms in the country, not just pork producers. He has also said that the “right” lawsuit against livestock producers could bring damage awards of up to $13 billion.”

Obama and his cult aren’t wasting any time destroying our entire country, are they?

Going after the banks, wall street, industries,coal, oil and farmers...all within 10 days of Obama taking office!

But don’t worry folks..they have ‘shovel ready’ projects in the porkulus bill.....hundreds of taxpayer funded DOG PARKS around the country!

We all can work for the gov. shoveling $&*^!

Actually the Kennedys and the Bin Ladens are equally dangerous to America.

Pray for America and Our Troops

RFK Jr. and Cheemy Carter are two of the most miserable, angriest little men around.

I’ve never known hog farmers to take down skyscrapers. But that’s just me.
