DES MOINES (AP) - A southeast Iowa city established six years ago by the followers of Transcendental Meditation guru Maharishi Mahesh Yogi is considering a plan to seize a farmer's land to prevent him from building a hog operation next to the city.
Maharishi Vedic City appraised Bob Palm’s land at $2,675 per acre, Wynne said.
Palm said the farm has been in his family for 115 years. He said he and his brothers don’t want to sell it.
“It’s not for sale. It never has been for sale and it never will be,” he said. “I live in the house I was born in. My grandfather built this house in 1894.”
This whole thing is horseshit. This is a bunch of idiots who chose to build their city next to a farm thats been in operation for 115years. They have NO right..none whatsoever as far as I'm conerned to tell that farmer and his family what to do with that land..none. OH my god having a livestock operation nearby would pollute the air, the water etc..
Uhmmm hey fucknut! Guess What? You say you want organic whatever? Care to guess where manure comes from? **gasp!** could it be? Yep manure is nothing but SHIT! Primarily Horse and cow shit, but whatever. Where does bacon come from? Oh my god, could it be..........pigs? Yep. Where does the ham you have for christmas or the ham luncheon meat for your sandwiches come from? Yep...pigs. FUCKING MORONS!
Now I can't find mention of it in any of the articles I could find on this really annoying bad comedy but I saw a vid of it on Foxnews tonight. The ever so benevolent Vedic City council offered up a contract that stated they would table the eminant domain for 20yrs. If Palm agreed not to use the land for the hog confinement facility and only use it for community projects, agricultural growth and if he was going to add livestock they had to the ever popular politically correct "Freerange" live stock.
I swear if I was rich, at least a half to 3/4's of a billion rich I'd try and come up with a way to steal the town out from under these asshats and EVICT THEM. Then sell the land to the farmer and his family for a pittance.
Sigh....I really hope that these paragons of political correctness disappear off the face of the planet. **saracasm on**'Paging the aliens that even now orbit our planet before the invasion...would you PLEASE abduct these idiots?'**sarcasm off**
