The invisible hand will take care of this. The mango distributor will be out of business in short order.

If you're dumb enough to eat bad fruit, it's your damn fault!

Just dump the FDA. Let the Free Market decide house much rat shiat should be in my ground beef (and how much beef).

the mangos were grown in Mexico.

so sure, lets expand our regulations and require Mexico to make changes in how they produce food.

So the cuts haven't even been voted on yet and somehow it's the GOP's fault that bad mangoes weren't detected by the FDA? Seems to me this story is a selling point for the cuts as it's obvious the FDA is more safety theater like the TSA is.

That's OK, I'm sure they'll disclose where the mangoes came from so that consumers can have all the information they need in order to make good decisions about their purchases because that is essential in a Free Market economy.

"The CDC didn't disclose the origin of the mangoes that sickened people in the U.S"

Oh well.

Furthermore, was the budget cut already? If not then this is _________ fault? WTF?!

Yesterday he spent all day arguing that Anne and MItt struggled in their youth until he added "Well of COURSE they were well-off...!" to a post, thereby thrashing his own argument. Then he never came back to the thread. Pointing and laughing ensued.

Also yesterday he insisted that ABC News and farkers in the thread were idiots for believing that the Cayman-flagged vessel on which Romney's big-donor party was held had a Cayman flag on it. Insisted it was the Bahamas. When shown wrong by multiple sources (pictures of flags, vessel registration in the Caymans) he never came back to the thread. Pointing and laughing ensued.

Ignore? The guy's freakin' hilarious! Why would I go to the circus and ignore the best clown under the big-top?!


That's the SOP for most of the derp brigade: keep throwing up bullshiat till every last once of it has been refuted and then scurry off to shiat all over another thread.

Perhaps I've missed a few reports, but it seems that fruits, vegetables (including organically-grown sprouts) and raw milk account for virtually all of the cases of people getting sick and/or dying from tainted food.

Ah, no. They are the only ones that seem to get press. It's still eggs and poultry and other meats that cause the most.

It's the fertilizer.

Organically grown produce uses liquefied cow manure for fertilizer, since they cannot use chemical agents. Unless the manure is treated properly, it transmits fecal-borne pathogens into the food which sometimes enter the produce itself, and thus even washing the produce doesn't help.

But hey, no evil chemicals...

The spring isn't really silent, sound just can't propagate through Freedom Air-SlurryTM well enough to be perceived.

Small price to pay to not be forced to listen to the "urban" crowd and their oogity-boogity music! Luckily, Nugent music is tinny and Real American enough to propagate through anything.

The original organic cert from California didn't allow cow manure. It was Repubs that watered it down (with said manure). This all happened around 1990. The California Organic Certification was very stringent, what the USDA replaced it with was largely greenwashing.
