I really like the Bacon Idea, any way we could get them to start processing pork products?

Until then, nothing with their band on it will pass through my door!!

Interesting stuff. Here is the original story that broke this news. Apparently, Tyson imports hundreds of Somali and other refugees to take advantage of Federal assistance dollars for relocation and tax breaks.

Read the comments at the end of the article. People are not happy.

Perhaps we should use the power of the internet to stand up to such activities.

Start an email with an outline of what Tyson has done/is doing, (the holiday switch and the hosting of illegals) and a list of their products for people to boycott, as well as the Tyson contact info so that people may write them to voice displeasure directly?

I don't have time to start yet another project, but its something to consider.....

I think it is wrong to force the 500 non-muslim workers to work on labor day. However, I have no real problem with them working on labor day if they personaly want to.
