    on large agricultural farms (CAFO's) are relaxed state-by-state, having a direct impact on clean water supplies. I'm not sure there is a big difference between a US corporation or a Chinese corporation buying the pig farm, as the regs will inevitably relax if Republicans and $$-connected Dem legislators and regulators have anything to do with it. In my opinion, corporations should have to pay a big tax in order to deal with their shit piles, and when their operations contaminate fresh water supplies…but the push-pull, as always, is regulation and deregulation.
