    I think Liberals may not be able to function without 24/7 care. Apparently, left to their own devices they'd eat crap (literally). How else do you explain this?

    "Frank, in an attempt to keep the American people from eating shit (literally), the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) currently inspects all chicken and turkey carcasses for things like bruises, bile and feces before they are sent to further processing.

    However, the UDSA is now considering a pilot program that would eliminate that inspection and allow private poultry processing plants to do whatever they want. The USDA is holding a public commenting period on this proposed change through April 26.

    Please, click here to sign our petition opposing the privatization of poultry inspection. We will submit your signatures and comments to the USDA before the April 26 deadline.

    Why is the USDA considering this change? To cut government jobs and allow private companies to make millions:

    In an article from early March, Food Safety News dug up a study [PDF] showing the program is projected to save FSIS up to $95 million over three years, and to give a $250 million boost to poultry companies.

    And the result of this will be Americans eating shit, literally. When a privatization program like this was tried out in the 1990s, the crap that ended up in the food was gag-worthy:

    The inspection category that had the highest error rate was for dressing defects such as feathers, lungs, oil glands, trachea, and bile still on the carcass. The average error rate for this category in the chicken slaughter facilities was 64 percent and 87 percent in turkey slaughter facilities.

    Please, click here to tell the USDA not to allow poultry plants to regulate themselves.

    Keep fighting,
    Chris Bowers, Daily Kos"

    The problem is that liberals, instead of dying from it, seem to thrive on eating shit.

    The government should stop everyone from smoking.

    They would need to offset the tax revenue loss ... maybe education or something....

    No. Liberals want to prevent people from selling shit and calling it chicken.
