Beef Consumers May Be Paying for Illegal Agri-Business Lobbying


When it comes to employee unions, agribusiness hates alleged forced membership, involuntary contributions, lack of rank-and-file control over use of contributions, and political participation.

Sadly, you, the consumer pays for it.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
