Re: “Joy Biggs watched her sister die in a jail cell over an ounce of pot

Why isn't the ACLU suing the pants off of this county. $10 million at least, for wrongful death.

Re: “Why is a new, no-kill animal shelter still sitting empty in Independence?

Independence animal shelter-may as well take your dog from there straight to the vet because it's going to have parvo! And don't use the vet on the south side of 23rd street, I took my dog there and requested an IV because he was dehydrated from vomiting. They did NOTHING-and my dog died. {they did not want to go to the trouble of sanitizing the room afterwards-they isolated him and LET HIM DIE a horrible death)It really broke my heart. I feel like I let my best buddy down because I trusted a vet to do what he was supposed to do and I went to work. It was Three Trails Animal shelter-I would suggest another vet that actually cares about LIFE.

Screw you Three Trails animal hospital! I hope the place burns down and you all die.

Re: “"Right to farm" doesn't mean farming right. Far from it

Since "corporations are people, my friend," it doesn't take an attorney from the Revisor's Office to figure out what this boondoggle is all about.

Intensive hog and chicken farming polluting groundwater, streams and rivers? Too bad, so sad. It's Tyson and Farmland's "right" to farm.

GMO crops cross-pollinating the neighbors corn field? Monsanto has a "right" to farm and protect their patents by suing the neighbor for "theft".

These are just a couple of examples of the potential here to strip the EPA and State agencies of any power to regulate big agra and their environmentally unsound farming practices.

All cleverly disguised in another empty political soundbite that appeals to warm and fuzzy traditional values. Another big corporate Trojan Horse.

I mean, after all, who would vote against the right of good old Ma and Pa to work their 40 acres and the mule drawn plow?

More corporate lies and BS.

Don't fall for it.

Re: “Taking the plunge on Verrückt, the world's tallest water slide

Great article. My favorite line: "...I high-fived my raft mates and decided to stress-eat a funnel cake."

Insane, and awesome!

The ads should have been thrown away.

To simplify, if Monsanto is for it, vote NO.

Re: “"Right to farm" doesn't mean farming right. Far from it

Of note to getting this on the ballot is Missouri Sen. Kiki Curls from the 9th district.

In the Missouri records, Ms. Curls was originally against this amendment when it was being argued. However it was Ms Curl's single vote that changed and got it onto the ballot after several failed votes in the Senate. Now the PAC Ms Curls is aligned with, Freedom Inc, has distributed a flier in several local media sources supporting a "yes" vote on this amendment. So what changed? Why did a Senator representing an almost entirely urban district suddenly get interested in farming? Looking at campaign disclosure records could it be the paid for trip to Israel by biotech groups? Was it the dinners paid for by Monsanto and other Ag groups? Was it all the jobs it will create for the 9th district? I guess we'll never know. But I fail to see why this amendment would do anything to help the 9th district.

If this passes her district can look forward to relief from the "food desert" by more processed food as a source of nutrition in an area known for higher rates of heart disease and diabetes.

Re: “"Right to farm" doesn't mean farming right. Far from it

The Family Farmer has replaced The Noble Savage, a myth perpetuated into fact.

This law would give more protection to the puppy mills, the factory farms and the plow-it-then-put-it-in-CRPers.

Like laws which exempt those fracking from having to tell people what chemicals they are pumping into the ground, this will keep illegal and questionable practices in agriculture from being exposed. Keeping the perps safe, comfy and profitable.

It's a corn-and-soybean-ghetto in the Heartland and the family farmer died when Joe Leuter was able to ignore the Packers and Standards law and turn hog farmers into janitors.
