OK, here is what burns me about Mad Cow disease. I knew a bunch of ecological liberals (aka tree huggers) that were freaking out thinking that Mad Cow disease) was going to be in their hamburgers and McDonald's and Burger King and kill the whole world - to hear them talk.

My guess is there are things in our food supply, all of our food supply that is much worse then Mad Cow disease.... with all the additives and stuff..

But hey! how is the gene pool going to improve if you going to die so easy? How we would even know what an improved gene pool was suppose to be?

Hey Kearney read up on the concept of Prions. It's actually pretty scary stuff with some pretty good backing in science.

BSE and JKS are real and really scary diseases. Is some of this hype, maybe , but there is more than just a small dose of reality in all of this.

Oh and read up about the chronic wasting disease in deer and think how if it crosses over to the human population how many deer hunters are going to get the whammy.

All in all we could use a few less deer in these parts.

Go to this site http://www.markpurdey.com and read what he has to say. Alot of common sense combined with good old scientific investigative logic. Mad cow is probably not even a contagious disease. If it was many , many more would have it by now.

Mad cow is a scary thing your kids could get it from uncooked meat from McDonald's I don't eat their meat. We may still be here tomorrow but it's the thought of someone getting mad cow in my town I don't like the thought of it.

Oh puhleeeeese. It's not like you have the internet to learn about these things.

Google: Jakob Kreutzfeld syndrome, or maybe Bovine spongiform encephalitis, or Prions. Sheesh.

Really a mind is a terrible thing to waste, especially usuing it to blame the current administration for everything under the sun. Do you really need your hand held in everything you do?

Surely you know better than that right?

Little slow on the uptake eh?

You're only able to parrot the same statements over. Rhetoric, pablum you choose the term.

Your party lost get over it. He'll be in for a few more years, in the mean time you'd be of more use coming up with solutions that are meaningful and will work instead of crying and playing the blame game.

Get out from behind the keyboard and help the Democrats try to win.

PS They won't
