I’ve been in the potato industry for a long time and I’m a huge fan of our industry. However, I have seen some bad news during the past few years from some of our members who have gone out of business. I have a lot of respect for our industry and what it does to our state’s economy and the food we have to produce.
One of our members, who ran his own potato farm for many years, went out of business recently. He had a lot of good ideas and was very successful, but something happened to trigger a chain of events that resulted in his farm going out of business. He didn’t take legal action, but that didn’t stop people from trying to sue him for the loss of his farm.
Although it’s not explicitly stated, it seems likely that he died because of some kind of bad, long-term mistake in his work. His farm was an important industry for the state of Michigan, and it was important for his family, too.
It’s a nice sad story, but the fact remains that this man was probably a good person who had bad luck on his hand. In fact, he probably came to the end of his life in a way that most people would agree was a terrible thing (and I include myself along with the rest of the world in that).
We also know that he was a very good and loyal member of the United States Congress. In fact, he was involved in the decision to give a medal of honor to the two U.S. Army men who were murdered in Benghazi back in October of 2012. The man who was the only person who knew the details of the incident and who was asked to act as an intermediary between these two brave men became a hero for a day.
Just to clarify, the “michigan potato” medal of honor was given to U.S. soldiers because of the events at Benghazi. The award was given to Sergeant First Class Christopher Speer, a member of the U.S. Army, and Specialist 1st Class Christopher Kyle, a U.S. Army Ranger who was killed by an explosive device while providing security at the CIA’s base in Benghazi. Both died in the attack.
The medal, which was awarded to the two U.S. soldiers (who were also killed), was the result of an investigation into the explosion of a CIA drone in Benghazi earlier this year. The investigation found that it was an act of terrorism, and that terrorists had used a UAV to bomb the compound so that the CIA would be unable to track the terrorists, which is a violation of international law.
It’s always good to have some kind of honor for those who protect us. Although we don’t know exactly who did it, we do know that this was a terrible and horrific act of terrorism.
There is little to nothing official about the details of the probe, but the investigation will likely end up being a topic of discussion in the next few months. The fact that this was a CIA drone is what led some to suggest that it was an act of terrorism.
In fact, the government is currently considering launching a probe of the Michigan potato industry. According to a press release from the governor, the Department of Public Safety will be conducting a “full-scale review” of the industry. The release noted that the inquiry will examine the state’s trade policies and infrastructure.
