If the Federal government leaders would do what we hired them to do this sort of thing would NEVER HAPEN.

Body: Hi Mommy!
I am only 8 inches long
but I have all my organs.
I love the sound of your voice.
Every time I hear it
I wave my arms and legs.
The sound of your heart beat
is my favorite lullaby.
Month Two.
Mommy
today I learned how to suck my thumb.
If you could see me
you could definitely tell that I am a baby.
I'm not big enough to survive outside my home though.
It is so nice and warm in here.
Month Three.
You know what Mommy
I'm a boy.!
I hope that makes you happy.
I always want you to be happy.
I don't like it when you cry.
You sound so sad.
It makes me sad too
and I cry with you even though
you can't hear me.
Month Four.
Mommy
my hair is starting to grow.
It is very short and fine
but I will have a lot of it.
I spend a lot of my time exercising.
I can turn my head and curl my fingers and toes
and stretch my arms and legs.
I am becoming quite good at it too.
Month Five.
You went to the doctor today.
Mommy, he lied to you.
He said that I'm not a baby.
I am a baby Mommy, your baby.
I think and feel.
Mommy, what's abortion?
Month Six.
I can hear that doctor again.
I don't like him.
He seems cold and heartless.
Something is intruding my home.
The doctor called it a needle.
Mommy what is it? It burns!
Please make him stop!
I can't get away from it!
Mommy! HELP me!
Month Seven.
Mommy
I am okay.
I am in Jesus's arms.
He is holding me.
He told me about abortion.
Why didn't you want me Mommy?
Every Abortion Is Just ...

Why the heck does the Agriculture Dept. have to find this? Why isn't Cargill INSPECTING IT'S OWN PRODUCT BEFORE IT'S ON STORE SHELVES?

That is a totally ass-backwards way to do things.

Well, Duh! do you suppose it is because the USDA is responsible for inspecting all meat, fish, poultry and other food products shipped in the United States?

Duh! I would say it's the RESPONSIBILITY of the manufacturer, FIRST AND FOREMOST. The USDA shouldn't have to "catch" it AFTER it reaches store shelves. Duh!

Well, DUH! The USDA is charged with having on site inspectors in all food processing plants.

Seems like you need to do a little research into the responsibilities of our government agencies too.

You apparently WORK for the PROCESSORS and believe that they should be absolved of any responsibility for the quality of their products. You would rather BLAME the USDA than the REAL culprits.

Instead of trying to make me appear ignorant , try giving us a good reason for WHY the processors shouldn't be policing themselves?

NOWHERE did I EVER say that inspectors ARE NOT or SHOULD NOT be in the processing plants, ignoramus.

I said THE COMPANIES should be INSPECTING THEIR OWN product BEFORE IT REACHES STORE SHELVES.

First of all, yes the processors of the products
should absolutely police themselves!
The FDA,and USDA inspectors only spot check due
to the fact that you may have only a handfull of
inspectors for a huge area. Therefore if they
don't happen to catch a certain batch, then it
gets to the consumer. In the majority of the
cases that have happened recently the problem
was caught before it became epidemic.
Either way if the proper procedures are strictly
followed by the processors and the Govt. does a
more thorough job these type of things are less
likely to happen.
You also can't rule out the mishandling of food
by the consumer!

Has anyone noticed that there is more and more recalls with the growing number of illegal immigrants that are working at all the packing houses.
