Mad Cow – Double Standard

It a double standard when it come to mad cow disease. When Canada had a single case of Mad Cow the US banned all beef from Canada.

Now remember – this was ONE COW and they banned the cattle from the entire country of Canada. And that happened back in May of 2003.

Now only 7 months later we find exactly the same thing here in the United States. So what do we do? Well – if we were to be consistent we would ban all US beef until we get to the bottom of this – but nooooo – when we do it – it’s no big deal – the meat is safe. Nothing to worry about.

So – let me see here – if the cow come from Canada it’s dangerous. But if it’s an American cow – it’s not. hmmmmmmmm …..

To my amazement here in the US we finally decided to prohibit the sale of meat from cattle who are too sick to walk. Little did I know that it was common practice here to sell cattle as food that are seriously ill from unknown diseases to be put on the tables and fed to American children. But – the cattle lobby has it’s infestments in the right politicians who don’t give a fuck about the people who they are sworn to serve.

So – the way I see it – this is something that may be good for America because it exposes the truth and if the cattle industry suffers then that’s what the bastards have comming for serving us sick meat.

Every country has a tendency to slant things in their favour to varying degrees. The US does it a little more than Canada. But it does make the people who said ‘It can’t happen here’ look stupid… especially since the cattle industry between Canada and the US is fully integrated.

The best thing to do for this problem to get resolved is to keep politicians out of it.

That’s right, Marc – the sociopsychopathic elite social caste in this country DOESN’T give a fuck about you, me or anything or anyone else. When people start to finally face that fact, they will come to understand a great many things IMHO.

Marc et al.

The food system in this country is fucked up. I am a small farmer, and I raise healthy, happy, drug free, poison free animals for my friends. There is a simple solution to food security, bypass the SYSTEM.
