Agriculture Department Doesn't Care if You Die

The USDA wants to ban a cattleman from testing all his cows for Mad Cow Disease.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture tests fewer than 1 percent of slaughtered cows for the disease, which can be fatal to humans who eat tainted beef. A beef producer in Kansas, Creekstone Farms Premium Beef, wants to test all of its cows.

Larger meat companies feared that move because, if Creekstone should test its meat and advertised it as safe, they might have to perform the expensive tests on their larger herds as well.

In other words, they do not want to ensure the safety of the food supply. Period.

Expensive? How expensive is it going to be to treat a population with rotted brains?

I'm afraid that we already have a population of rotted brains. How else to explain the allure of Fred Thompson? MSM? The Creation Museum? And now, Bush is nominating a 'pray away the gay' Surgeon General.

Oh that last has to be in honor of Gay Pride Month, an honoring rather like the one he does for Black History.
