The Hamlet chicken processing plant fire was an industrial fire in Hamlet, North Carolina, at the Imperial Foods chicken processing plant on September 3, 1991, due to a failure in a hydraulic line. Twenty-five were killed and 54 injured in the fire, trapped behind locked fire doors. In 11 years of operation, the plant had never received a safety inspection.[1] Investigators believe a safety inspection might have prevented the disaster.[2]
..... snip ....
The factory was permanently closed, with the loss of 215 jobs.[dead link][15] Within two years of the accident insurance companies and the North Carolina business lobby together introduced legislation limiting the compensation available to injured workers and relatives of killed workers.[6] Insurance companies had originally agreed to pay $16.1 million to the injured and the families of the deceased.[18

What Americans need is more melamine in our food. That way we don't have to keep importing melamine from China. Goddamned Chinese aren't gonna tell us what we need in our food!

Yeah, they really are that stupid. Defending them is pointless.

Bachmann just got a hankering for strolling through meat lockers and feels like everybody should be able to walk through them without government interference.

It would do no good. Teddy Roosevelt disagreed intensely with Sinclair's socialism, calling it "pathetic", but he was able to see that Sinclair pointed to a very real problem and promised Sinclair to right "those specific wrongs that you [Sinclair] have identified". Michelle Bachmann would simply toss the book aside, saying "No socialist can say anything I need to hear!". She's too stupid and fanatical to listen.

Her family runs a farm (she got subsidies for it). I don't know what she raises, but I don't want to eat it.

Sinclair considered the reaction to his book a miscarriage. He thought he was writing about labor abuses.

OK, then, as long as they're USDA inspected.

If she can read it at all she would say:
don't confuse me with the facts I've got my mind made up

fortunately since she would read it literally she would see its association to the food industry ....but not too society and greed.

Wouldn't it be fun to see her discuss Orwell's Animal farm?

She must be a very remarkable woman to have completely raised twenty some foster children in only five years
Does anyone know how long each child stayed and why she quit fostering? (besides her husband told her to)

The foster kid story has had a merciful low profile unless she flogs it. I'd seen a mention of a few months each on average, which might be normal.

From the NY Times:

The Bachmanns were licensed by the state from 1992 to 2000 to handle up to three foster children at a time; the last child arrived in 1998. They began by offering short-term care for girls with eating disorders who were treated through a program at the University of Minnesota, said George Hendrickson, the chief executive of PATH Minnesota, the private agency that handled the placements.

While Mrs. Bachmann may have envisioned herself caring for unwed mothers, as she said in 2006, Mr. Hendrickson, who worked with the couple for four years, said that to his knowledge, none were pregnant.

He said the Bachmann home was “technically considered a treatment home,” which offered a higher level of reimbursement. (The current rate is $47 a day, Mr. Hendrickson said.) That designation required a higher standard of care from parents who had the educational and emotional capability to handle “serious mental health issues.” Dr. Bachmann’s training was an asset.

If there's ever an obscene noise to be made on an instrument, it's gonna come out of a guitar! On a sax you can play sleaze, on a bass you can play balls. But on a guitar you can be truly obscene! Lets be realistic about this, the guitar can be the single most blasphemous device on earth! The guitar makes a stink noise. That's why I like it!!
