I think this is a fantastic idea.

Jeez, first a Hasidic NYC cop. Now this.

It's like they're taking over the place.

There is a market for Kosher stuff. This just sounds like smart business to me. I love being the wet blanket that doesn't find humor in articles like this.

I thought I recognized the Rubashkin guy - I have a NYTimes Sunday Magazine all about their Postville, Iowa plant.

They've just won over the entire Jewish Indian market. They stand to make literally hundreds of dollars.

This is great news for Pine Ridge. The unemployment rate is about 80 percent the last time I saw any figures from the reservation. Thats just too high for such a small population but when your born into poverty as extreme as reservation life its almost impossible to rise above. Many try and hopefully this will give the families living off of commodities a chance to better their childrens lives.

Was'nt this in The Book of Mormon?

Quick! Someone summon Tatsuma!

This is good news. Thanks to submitter. I wanted to get that in before it turned in debate over the One True God vs. the Great Spirit vs. the Almighty Dollar.

First things first...

Was'nt this in The Book of Mormon?

I'm engaged to an 'inactive' mormon (she should be disfellowshipped or excommunicated from my experience... that's why I'm marrying her!), my future in-laws VERY mormon!


Couldn't help but thinking of two tribes joining...

... and yes, after posting I see I incorrectly used 'you're' and not 'your' in the last one... cut me some slack... I'm drinking box-wine...don't judge me... you wanna take this outside?

2006-07-11 01:29:46 AM  
I love buffalo :D They're cool looking and tasty! :D

I'll have to see if I can order some of that.
2006-07-11 01:37:05 AM  
Just checked in to make sure someone had hit the Mormon nail.
Very Jewish, indeed...keeping the business all in the family.

"Why did we come to Gordon, Nebraska?" he asked. "I don't know. Believe me, I don't know."

Hah, that crazy ol' Big Crow doesn't fool me.
They came for the scalps of the white man!

So many words, so many definitions I do not know... least I now know how to spell them.
2006-07-11 02:26:56 AM  
Nice to see some positive news coming from Pine Ridge Reservation. Hopefully this will help chip down the 80% unemployment rate they've got there.

I don't know if I could ever consciously eat a buffalo though. Something about it just seems to be gamey and the packages that sell buffalo in grocery stores are really, really bloody.

"Why did we come to Gordon, Nebraska?" he asked. "I don't know. Believe me, I don't know."

"Oglala Lakota Nation...leaders declared that the plant and 300 surrounding acres of Gordon are part of its economic-empowerment zone.

For every person living within the zone it employs - Indian or otherwise - the company qualifies for a $3,000 federal tax credit."

This isn't really the first time this type of thing has happened, I don't think.

A few years back, for example, there were a bunch of regular ole white farmers who went in on a co-op called "Dakota Hallal" who raised/slaughtered beef for the Islamic market in Detroit. Or, I could have made that up.

Bulf: I don't know if I could ever consciously eat a buffalo though. Something about it just seems to be gamey and the packages that sell buffalo in grocery stores are really, really bloody.

Well, Kosher buffalo has no blood, they drain it.

Unreconconfederate: Obvious
You're saying this as if they're doing something bad, like cutting down on quality or engaging in questionable business. This kind of legislation is meant to attract businesses to places that really need them, without forcing the business owners to make a sacrifice.
But if the person who does something nice for other people doesn't have to make a large sacrifice, it doesn't count, right?
2006-07-11 03:38:29 AM  
Wait a second, did the article say ANYTHING about buffalo?
2006-07-11 03:50:17 AM  
Ya, heard about that aaaaaages ago. The dancing parties must be.. peculiar to say the least
2006-07-11 04:06:07 AM  
Buffalo burgers are pretty good. Really lean. You have to be very careful cooking the steaks though. I threw a couple on the grill, pulled them off when they appeared medium well, and enjoyed a nice dinner of shoe leather. When you're cutting into a steak, and you make meat sawdust with the steak knife, you've cooked it too long. The flavor isn't that much different than beef though, much less fat, but it can have a bit of an iron/metallic taste.

thought I closed that bold tag...oh well

No, it's a beef plant. Buffalo was just funnier for the headline and no one ever R's TFA.

headline made my head assplode.

Are you sure these are Kosher?

Wow. Just read the Wiki article on Postville, IA. I had no idea there was so much controversy surrounding the Kosher abattoir there. Plus, apparently, a hasidim robbed a convenience store in Decorah, injuring a clerk. This, of course, immediately conjured up images of the Hebrew Hammer...
2006-07-11 02:06:50 PM  
I say bulldoze them all into a ditch.

No one else RTwholeFA? Line toward the end:

The plant recently started to do some boning

/please tell me I'm not the only immature person here. please.

Well in that case, i'll have to give it a try. I'm guessing the idea is that you don't cook it as long as you cook steak.
