Iowa hogs

LE MARS, IOWA – DNR staff from the Spencer field office are en route to a manure spill about 3 miles southeast of Le Mars in Plymouth County.

About 1 p.m., November 10, DNR received notice that a semi-tanker had rolled over and was leaking manure into a small unnamed stream. An estimated 8,900 gallons of manure is being released.

The Oyens fire department is on site. Dan Niles from Dan Niles Pit Pumping is working to berm the area and pump up manure still in the tanker.

The manure is from Tom Langel’s swine finishing operation.

DNR will provide advice and monitor cleanup, and consider appropriate enforcement action.

    Ban all semi’s. They are polluting the ground. Then kill all pigs and send them to Iran. They are nothing but liberals in disguise anyway.

    Ban those semi’s. They are polluting the ground. Get rid of all pigs (they are just liberals in disguise anyway) and send the meet to Iran.

    Oh no! Not another manure spill. Get all those trucks off the road to prevent this. Kill all the pigs so there won’t be any more liberal shit.

        Hello Loser. You were wrong about Trump, wrong about Grassley, wrong about King and wrong about all your other liberal bullshit. Haven’t you figured out yet that the country is fed up with Dumb Asses like you. You could move to Canada but they won’t take you. Try Mexico or one of the other communist country’s that might want a LOSER like you. The point is you are no longer wanted here so get the hell out.

          On the bright side, LVS doesn’t have much time left anyway. He is moving up very close to the top of the Grim Reaper’s list every time he posts an idiotic comment, which is every time.

          You losers just are to dense to understand. You have been wrong about everything. Nothing you say or do matters in the least. I will be around to piss on your graves but meanwhile, you are a nothing, can be nothing and mean nothing. You have been wrong about every single thing. Now you are just nothing losers. So, go away losers and wait for me to piss all over you.

          LVS you should not get so upset. If you really didn’t care so much about others opinions or what they thought of you you wouldn’t get so upset. Calm down and keep your chin up little trooper.

          Well Trooper. My Dad taught me never ever to let anyone bully me and it has stuck. I automatically fight back when bullied. The Dumb Asses are so stupid they haven’t figured out if they do a troll attack on me I will make them disappear just like if I ever see them in person they will be made to run. If someone wants to have a discussion I am more than willing to have it. If they want to attack when my back is turned like these non-paying cowards do I am more than willing to fight back. They lost every argument they have made when Trump and the Republicans won and just can’t stand it. Now they are going to whine and cry like the little baby’s they are.

          Well LVS, we do know for a fact that your Dad apologized to your mother thousands of times for not pulling out sooner.

          You are such a delusional and idiotic old POS.
          You’ve attacked many people without provocation on this site thousands of times, you stupid old goat.
          And what is always with this “subscriber” crap?
          The only reason that you get away with all of your attacks and deleting other peoples comments here is because you have your lips so very firmly attached to the website owner’s ass.

          The reason that so very many people call you out is because you are a bigoted, clueless and idiotic asshole.
          If you did not understand that by now, it is way too late as you have very little time left.
          A time for which all of us will read your obituary, a slow smile coming to our faces, then a week later go down and shit on your grave.

          It is the same person using different name to back stab and attack because they are to cowardly to use their real name. You are such a freakin idiot to think I won’t find you because I will. I am going to talk to Matt about blocking all non-subscribers that attack paid subscribers. We know you are a establishment puke who is a nothing. Just a attack dog for the pricks. I will continue to delete you every time you attack me and use my on line name and I have a right to do it. You are just a damn loser who can’t admit you were wrong. Go President Trump.

        That is not a true statement I eat “zero” meat, dairy, eggs for over 28 years and I am not starving, I need clean water, soil and air i.e. environment, there is no species on earth that destroys their environment that has any intelligence.
