      You are right on the money about the pig poop
      situation in NC.

      Tonight's ABC evening news with
      Peter Jennings had a very large segment about, yep, you
      guessed it, the pig poop situation in NC. Seems as if the
      pigs are dropping, each year, 37 BILLION GALLONS of
      the stuff in NC and, to clean up some of it, the pig
      farmers, most of whom are corporate farmers not from NC,
      want a taxpayer handout, not a loan but a "grant", of
      $1 BILLION right now, immediately.

      Sounds to
      me like big time corporate welfare. Will the
      taxpayers stand for it? Sniff..sniff.
      Does BBT stand to
      lose any money on loans to these corporate pig fellas?

    • ........is one of the largest economic issues
      facing the state of N.C. and, therefore, should have a
      place in any rational economic discussion. Unless, of
      course, the people of N.C. choose to just ignore the
      problem which, of course, is a choice in and of
      itself........kind of like an ostrich. Somehow I got the feeling
      that the "good doctor" resides in eastern N.C. Perhaps
      he can add something to this debate. The N.C.
      Legislature appears to be incapable of solving the stench
      problems. When the stench finally reaches West to Buncombe
      County...........

      GOOD BULL.

    • We have certainly descended into the muck on tis
      board...but it is nice to see some discussions with different
      points here. The cheerleading and the buyout runors do
      get a little repetitive and tiresome:-( Pig by
      products aside....lets keep the stench down on here eh?

    • That with the past several posts we have lost the good Doctor for another period of time.

    • Although muckywaters is not very eloquent in
      expressing his disgust, he does bring out a very good point,
      IMHO. And that point is that N.C. is getting a
      reputation for not being able to handle certain economic
      interests. I think that someone posted many months ago that
      N.C. was the 2nd largest hog farming state in U.S.,
      but that N.C. had not yet developed a satisfactory
      way of dealing with all the pig poop that is produced
      on these hog farms, mainly down East..........Duplin
      County? Also, someone said that most of the big hog farms
      are owned by non-North Carolinians, so there is not
      really much economic benefit for the State, itself.
      Carried to its ultimate conclusion, this pig poop could
      mess up a nice State, and affect 'real' economic
      development.

    • Doc, and the rest of you that have made this a
      good and interesting board for the past months.


      I have about had it with the language that is being
      used by many of the new comers. They have a problem of
      some sort (mostly mental or moral). Yes, they have
      their "rights" TO FREE SPEECH. I just wish they would
      use their freedom of speech somewhere else.

    • be celebrating dividend day and bother to post
      about it? Wouldn't he be philosophizing about something
      or other? Maybe about the corruption of the soul by
      excessive concern/todo/hubbub with financial matters?
