    Yes I'm sure it had NOTHING to do with the appointment at all.

    Is everyone else as pleased as I am with how the government looks out for our best interests?

    This has been known for years.
    I haven't bought a single ounce of any meat from grocery stores for years.
    You think this is bad...Chicken is far worse...and even WORSE is shrimp.

    This would not be a problem if conservatives ruled,

    because there would be no USDA, no FDA,

    because federal inspection and regulation of the food industry is not an 'enumerated' power.

    :lol:

    This would clearly fall under interstate commerce. There's certainly a good reason for having an FDA, but when the government does nothing about the corruption and ineptness of the agency then it flies in the face of the very idea of regulating the commerce to begin with.

    What good is a regulatory agency that ultimately looks out for the interests of big business over the consumer it's supposed to be PROTECTING from big business?

    I thought you righties were all about self responsibility? Grow your own damn cows, slaughter them, and grind up the beef. Why are you looking for a government handout?

    Ok, now ask yourself, seriously, why is this happening?
    Maybe the real answer is somewhere inside the ideology of less government.

    All we have to do is throw money at the problem. If we make the department bigger, it'll be less likely that the cronies calling the shots will be bought off by special interests.


    That makes sense to everyone, right?
