America is Self-Destroying
The DeCoster Congressional Hearings Show is an example of the destructive war going on against America's most efficient and competitive industries. The United States exports about $4 billion a year of chicken products, of which $678.2 million went to China last year, according to Global Trade Information Services in Columbia, S.C. It is one of the very few industries that outcompetes the Chinese and contributes to America's trade balance with this country.
I am an Israeli Jew and shouldnt be worried about this issue, but I am definitely for DeCoster. Instead of vilifying him (הלבנת פנים - the Hebrew expression is "whitening his face") for his imaginary animal rights violations, publishing pictures of manure and rats in his farms as it was intentional, he should be respected as the successful innovator and leader he is. Those who create and manage such enterprises are very few and exceptional, and they should be cherised as industrial heroes.
