Seems to me...
1 - No farmer, grower, processor,or food vendor wants to intentionally sell tainted food. Its obviously bad for business.
2 - The bill, as proposed, seems to be a typical left wing attempt at over regulation, and a just as typical right wing attempt to whoa this horse.
3 - If we, the idiots, would wash our veggies and cook our meats, the problem mostly goes away.

I say - kill the bill, hire more inspectors and make them get off their fat FDA azzes, and run some PSA's on proper cooking and handling. Poof! Problem solved.

Left vs Right...I call all that vote for these types of unconstitutional legislative takeovers of The Peoples' rights, liberals whether a D, R, or I appears next to their names...more slippery slopes.

I agree common sense with washing, cooking our food, etc., is key, the catch is it requires individuals to use their God-given brain.

Yes, kill the bill, and a few others, and leave no tainted cells behind.

You realize all, that the whole TSA scanner debacle is fueled by corporate fascism, right?

How many billions has this waste of taxpayer money really cost us in image and loss of freedom? ALOT!

Time to tell congress, Fleabaggers, since you'll be holding the appropriations card in January, that corporate lobbying in congress needs to end.

This is just another welfare handout to corporations who see the government as one giant piggy bank.

Break up the Department of Fatherland Security and defund private enterprise and it's corrosive effort to destroy representative government in America.

LOL!!!

As if left to their own devices, corporate farming isn't going to give the finger to the public at every turn when they know there are no consequences for bad behavior.

That really worked well for Wall Street, now didn't it? LOL!!!!!!

Bush's FDA allowed poisoned food, toothpaste, dog and cat food, lead tainted toys, CFC producing plastics, poisonous drywall and thousands of other products coming in from China and elsewhere in an effort to give corporate welfare to American and foreign businesses.

Regulation is bad for business, but also kills and mames people.

So, time to regulate, inspect, and prosecute.

Sparring with you, point by point, would require me to infuse logic into the conversation, something which is unattainable to far left wing zealots who are infected with Bush derangement syndrome. Enjoy your socialist Utopia.
