    All I see is a “video unavailable” notice. Too bad. I almost never watch videos because of a very strong preference for written material that can be quickly skimmed, but I would have watched at least part of this one. I traveled to attend the very long CAFO hearing in Story County on 12/11, and the sheer dreadfulness of Iowa’s broken corrupt CAFO siting system was on full, painful, infuriating display. Every Iowa voter should watch at least part of one of these hearings.

    Thanks for making the video available. It’s a good video. The recent CAFO hearing I traveled to in Story County was a classic example of bad hoglot siting that left county officials helpless. With two new hoglots only a mile and a half north of Nevada, an important growth corridor for a growing town has just been blocked, and it’s a corridor that would have allowed less-expensive development and more affordable homes. And the third new hoglot has some unhappy neighbors.

    And the only local residents who had any say about the siting of the three new hoglots were the hoglot builders who are going to make good money from those 15,000 new hogs. The Big Pig industry, now firmly in charge of this state, illustrates the real Iowa Golden Rule — Them that has the gold, makes the rules.
