Catherine Chandler: Corporate ham

June 16, 2013 

Corporate ham

The Chinese cannot be more foreign to the state of North Carolina than the present corporate invasion led by the American Legislative Exchange Council, the Koch brothers and Art Pope. More pig waste will just add an olfactory dimension to our state’s demise.

Just one question: Is a foreign corporation a person? If only pigs could vote.

We Tarheels seem to have joined the chorus line of the Valleydale pig commercial with top hat and cane. Just like the pigs, there’s nothing here in Valleydale that should make us dance a jig to become some corporations’ bacon – foreign and domestic.
