Jan 4, 2011 Full story: Lexington Herald-Leader 549

When salmonella-laced peanut products sickened hundreds during a recent scare, President Barack Obama said consumers should be able to have confidence that their government will keep peanut butter-eating children safe - and that included his daughter Sasha.

The Democrats passed a bill that President Obama will sign today that will help protect Americans children from getting sick from foods that most kids eat for lunch.

And what is the republicans concern?

COST!

Increasing inspections at food processing facilities is a bad thing in the eyes of ignorant right-wingers and the buffoons they voted for in Congress. Thank God we have President Obama in the White House to prevent these ass-backward Neanderthals from damaging this country as bad as they did during the Bush years.

I remember when we had the mad-cow disease scare during the Bush era. Bush, et al barred ranchers and farmers from obtaining the the kits to voluntarily test their own herds for mad-cow disease. Three cases of mad cow disease have been discovered in cattle in the U.S. since 2003. Only 1% of cattle are tested for mad-cow disease at the slaughterhouse.

Downed cows (a symptom of mad-cow disease) being dragged into the slaughter houses, filthy conditions in meat processing plants and egg factories...the list goes on and on.

Of course we need to put in place procedures to ensure the safety of our food. And, laws are only as good as enforcement. "One in six Americans gets sick from contaminated food each year. About 128,000 end up in hospitals, and more than 3,000 die."

That is unacceptable in the United States of America. We need to get our priorities straight.

People getting sick and dying is not a sign of safe food. The increasing numbers of recalls is not a sign of food safety. This isn't Kenya. Our food is much safer then Kenya’s food. However if the Republicans have their way and reduce our Government to the size of the Kenyan government I am sure that will change. It seems that Republicans want to make us like third world countries with small governments that only spend enough money to maintain a big enough military to keep their people suppressed.

I know, Instead of food producers moving to Mexico where there are no regulations and they can start some more pandemics why don't we get rid of our regulations so they start those pandemics right here.

While Oblahblah wants to control every aspect of your life including what you eat and who is allowed to grow it he continues to leave the borders wide open. The Illegal alien invaders are allowed to work in the food plants, meat packing plants and food chain.

And did you hear about this?

The federal government will hire thousands of inspectors and the instances of salmonella will remain unchanged in the US.

...just thousands more paper shuffling bureatcrats to feed at the public trough.
