    PLEASE ban the hog farm!
    The Buffalo River is the nations first designated National River. The park is spectacular in her glory.
    The run-off from the hog farm could seriously damage the pristine Buffalo river. That effluent could in turn flow into the White River affecting
    thousands of our citizens.

    Besides banning future hop farms the current Hog Farm needs to be closed down and the agency responsible for rubber stamping it needs new management. The Buffalo is a national treasure Arkansas can’t afford to squander.

    I bet college hippies floating the river during spring break cause way more pollution than 10 hog farms.

    I bet you liberals won’t like it when the EPA comes a knocking with a 50,000 dollar fine because of an illegal ditch on your property. Use some commonsense and put the ideology to the side.

    I bet every liberal on here drives to work keeps their house between 68 and 78 uses chemicals on their yard…you know all that stuff that supposedly pollutes the environment.

    Posing as someone else is so witty, humorous, and bolsters your position so much………………………………………………not.
