If it is a $1 billion in trade then fine them $10 billion in fines. The only thing that they will understand is being hit in their GDP.


Yeah! And they might actually pay it too! Just like that south of the border country is picking up the tab for that wall.

I say fine them $5trillion dollars and really teach them a thing or two about a thing or two.

But these products didnt come in in the normal way where someone would be inspecting things. They came inside ramon noodles and other products according to the story. So right there we know if this is true its not the Chinese government trying to fawn off inferior products its smugglers looking to rip people off. Obviously they wont care about safety standards or anything else if it interferes with their racket.

Well no I am not a farmer so I wont pretend that I know much about farm animals. I do know pigs are carnivores and will eat what ever they are given. So the question remains.... are they feeding the pigs pork? Because they sure are not going out and getting it themselves.


This is the sort of thing you do not take chances with.

It's a major disease that no one has an answer for, and it would destroy the herds and the industry. This is also why no one take chances with hoof and mouth in livestock, either.

The reality is that we are not all that far away from famine in any country. We just cover it over better than most.

This seems strange and almost funny if it wasn't for the fact it could wipe out the pork industry in the US. Was this done to damage the pork industry or just to sell banned goods?


This is the sort of thing that happens when businessmen are trying to make a profit and damn the consequences. In other words, this is true capitalism...immediate profit is more important than health, than longevity, and more important than the very industry.

Just the logistics for smuggling this huge amount of tainted product would be expensive. But the real question is: How much tainted pork actually got into the country? If I was a betting man, I'd bet it's somewhere above 0 lbs.

I would disagree. Most successful businessmen are in it to go long-term, so they very much do have to take into account those things these people flagrantly ignored.

I would argue that successful businessmen are the true capitalists because they are looking to build capital. You cannot do that if you burn it all down. Capital is more than mere money.

Pigs fart a lot too.

This, and 'Hoof-and-Mouth', sounds like a very effective way to enact the Socialists 'Green New Squeal'...to save the planet by wiping out all of those evil, flatulent, American cows and pigs.

It's all funny until the bacon is gone.

Just imagine that scene in Pirates of the Caribbean where they're saying, "But where has the rum gone?" Only we're talking about bacon and all the little bacon seeds are being incinerated in an effort to keep their plague from spreading.

I stopped eating pork a while back when it was brought to my attention
that scientists, trying to make pigs more enviromentally friendly. Have
mixed pig DNA with E-Coli bacteria and mouse DNA.Then,when you read
in Isaiah 66:17,you tend to stop eating pork.

This episode isn't about Capitalism.

It's about Criminalism. 😎

And I bet the authorities executed the warrants before the oink was even dry 😎

Unless we feed our pigs contaminated meat our stocks should be just fine.

Not a farmer but pigs eat slop and I have always thought that to be stale and left over food.


Pigs are omnivores and require a diet that's rich in variety. They primarily eat high grains, but farmers will supplement their diet with pig slop. Pig slop varies based on the ingredients that are available. Some farmers will drop buckets off at public places, such as nursing homes and schools, to have the kitchen fill with their leftover foods. Leftover foods that make up pig slop may include scrap foods that humans don't eat. From cucumber peels to apple cores, the foods still include important nutrients for pigs at a fraction of the price.


What Is in Pig Slop?

Yep, I could see pork products easily making their way to the pigs.

Everyone in China works for the Chinese government even their black market.

Let's, disease kills pigs, Muslims want to take over North America, Muslims hate pigs, doesn't seem very hard to connect the dots.
