Americans should eat meat with every meal, EVERY DAY.

Ironically enough, when they have their heart attack, they'll have health care coverage because of Obamacare.

I just don't care if these idiots are outraged at outrage over outrage of outrageous outrage.

I just want them out.

Well, they'll have health coverage because they're in congress. The rest of the country that's defiantly eating itself to death will have health coverage because of Obamacare.

The National Cattleman's Association and these idiots have brought far more attention to the Meatless Mondays concept than it ever would have gotten if they'd just shook their heads and said, "Yeah, good luck with that" instead of overreacting like a bunch of middle school girls.

FTFA: "Sens. Mike Lee, Jim Demint and Tom Coburn; Reps. Ron Paul and Mike Burgess; Sarah Palin, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Brent Bozell, Ed Meese, Boyden Gray, James Dobson." ... "This campaign is a testament to the power of the grass-roots. That's who fueled this campaign from day one, and that is who helped us make the runoff,"

They keep using that word, it doesn't mean what they think it means.

It's going to be hilarious when meat prices go up because of those Midwestern droughts and all the fatties whine and whine and whine.

Let me just say that I eat meat and I love it.

That said, its cruel, bad for your health, and a waste of resources. I would be happy if the price of meat doubled over the next year.

That's a strange comment (unless I'm not getting some sort of sarcasm)?

I don't think anyone's proven that eating meat is any less healthy? Just like anything... eat in moderation.

Why would you want the price of meat to double? Serious question.
 
2012-07-31 04:23:08 PM
There are American vegetables, grains, and legumes too you blithering blowhards. I guess as long as they're shoving ribs into their gaping pieholes at least it gives us a couple seconds of relief from their relentless bloviating and grandstanding.

Not really. Among other failings, they also lack table manners

/like not talking with your mouth full, for instance

downstairs: Why would you want the price of meat to double? Serious question.


I was actually serious : )

Of course, moderation is fine - but this story is about not wanting to be moderate. When prices double because of the drought or high fuel prices, people will eat less meat, which is good, I think that meat should be considered a luxury, not something you eat 3 times a day.

In the spirit for my love of the Q, I suggest that we intersperse the typical routine poo flinging that is commonplace in the politics tab with some tips, tricks and recipes.

My latest fav has been po'k tenderloins. I marinate them overnight in fat free Italian dressing (I use Wish Bone) and coarsely chopped chipotle peppers in adoboe. I cook them in my Weber kettle by placing the coals (Kingsford) with a big chunk of apple wood on one side and the tenderloins on the other. I set the vent wide open on the downwind side and between the heat and meat. 20 minutes on one side then flip and switch places and let them ride for another 20 or until they hit 135-140 internal. Pull them off, cover with foil and let them rest for 10 minutes or so before slicing and serving.
 
2012-07-31 04:41:38 PM
Of course they support beef producers. All that bullshiat has to come from somewhere.

I love meat, I know that corporate farming of meat destroys the land and uses utterly disgusting/inhumane practices, but I love meat.

Adds Mr. Grassley: "This is a reminder to USDA that it's supposed to advocate for American agriculture, not against it."

I'm fairly certain that not eating chicken on Monday is lining the pockets of Chinese agriculture, but I'm not going to worry too much about it. Take a chill pill, Chuck.
 
2012-07-31 04:43:09 PM
Yes, because that's what grown-ups do. Someone tells you not to do something, or advises you not to do something, you go ahead and do it anyway, thumbing your nose at them the whole time. I'd like to give a shout-out to the lower end of the bell curve....what it is!

Crazy as it sounds, I think I might have to side with the GOP on this one. There's absolutely no reason for the USDA to advocate a weekly meat boycott, and I would expect Congressmen and Senators from meat-producing states to call them out on it.

Sure there is. Political correctness. And they are the keeper of the food.. triangle? Circle? What the hell is the shape these days? Besides, their advice is out of date.

They can't make a single tough decision that matters and will improve the U.S., but if you want meaningless symbolism and political grandstanding at the expense of the tax payer they're your guys.

They aren't really "advocating a meat boycott," man. They said "hey wouldn't it be nice if we did a meatless Monday thing?" to which some children responded "YOU CAN'T TELL ME WHAT TO DO" and bought a shiatload of meat.
 
2012-07-31 04:52:35 PM
The sad thing is that this was a just a recommendation and a factually correct one at that. I know I eat too much meat and I still have meat probably 4 days a week for 2 meals a day. It won't kill you to eat a salad for lunch one day a week.
 
2012-07-31 04:56:25 PM
Next thing you know religious leaders will start telling you you can't eat meat on Fridays. The gall of some people...

qorkfiend: There's absolutely no reason for the USDA to advocate a weekly meat boycott,


Meat uses 50% of corn production, and corn production is expected to be down 12% from June estimates.

U.S. feed grain supplies for 2012/13 are projected sharply lower with corn
production prospects reduced 1.8 billion bushels from last month. The projected U.S. corn yield
is lowered 20 bushels per acre to 146 bushels reflecting the rapid decline in crop conditions since
early June and the latest weather data

Corn condition Very poor : Poor : Fair : Good : Excellent
July 29, 2012 23 25 28 21 3
Previous year 5 9 24 46 16

I do Chicken Skin Tacos.

Take some bone-in Chicken breasts with the skin and rub them with granulated garlic, onion powder, adobo, cumin, salt and pepper. 7 minutes a side on the grill then pull them off and let them rest. Take the skin and cut it into little chunks and fry it up in a pan. Pull the meat apart and fill soft tacos with that and some cabbage (I like red) and some tomatillo sauce and a crumbly mexican cheese and top it with the skin.

No shiat. When my nephew was 11 years old, we couldn't phrase any warnings negatively or he'd ignore them and redouble his efforts.

"Be careful on the roof, you don't want to fall off and break your arm, do you?" "YES!" [runs around roof like a squirrel on Red Bull]

"Don't drink that so fast. Do you want to throw up or something?" "YES!" [drinks too much pop so fast he gets sick]

Had we only known he had captured the entire Tea Party organizing principle 14 years ahead of time, he could have been so rich...

They said they should try it out as a change of pace, and for health reason. It was IN NO WAY MANDATORY, OR A RULE, OR A LAW. It's like your company declaring Friday Casual Day, so you come in wearing 4 suits in protest. If you don't want to, then, you know, don't. But your state doesn't survive solely on Monday meat sales. That's insane and stupid.

qorkfiend: I think I'll change your farky note to "between the heat and meat".


It's a good place for your vent.

Here's my dry rib rub:

2 tbsp. paprika
2 tbsp. light brown sugar
2 tbsp. salt
1 tbsp. red pepper flakes
1 tbsp. whole peppercorns
2 tsp. dry mustard
2 bay leaf

Grind the pepper flakes and peppercorns in a spice grinder until a little smaller than coarse. Add the rest of the ingredients and grind very thoroughly. Apply to all sides of your favorite cut of ribs (I prefer "St Louis" cut 2 1/2 and down or loin backs if I can't find the 2 1/2) and let sit overnight.

I cook my ribs in a small offset smoker at 325-350 for 4 hours then wrap in foil and let them go for another 1/2 - 1 hour as in the smoker as the temp dies down. I like them tender but not quite "fall off the bone" tender.

Plus, you know, it's the Department of Agriculture, not the Department of Meat. "Meatless Mondays" would be promoting other kinds of, shockingly enough, agriculture...
