What? This is having a real impact? I was told we didn't need the government.

Damn, and I almost bought Foster Farms chicken breast the other day.  Ended up getting the organic, cage-free chicken instead.  *pats self on back*

No wonder I've been shiatting curd for the last week.

Yet another example of big government overreach, am I right?

A little food poisoning never killed anyone.

Not just the FDA, but the CDC who does investigations on this sort of thing.

Salmonella is 100% natural and organic.

Every child that dies from salmonella poisoning is on Obama's head since he won't compromise to reopen the government by defunding the program that well might help this child get affordable hospital treatment for salmonella poisoning.

Ahh, the joys of hiring illegal immigrants who don't wash their goddamn hands.

Deep in the pits of Hell, Ayn Rand is cackling to herself at this mayhem she caused.

Then is hit on the back by the whip of a demon and told to get her lazy old ass and a mop to Rape Room #3257 because there's been another fecal spill.

Free market will take care of this. I mean, once I get food poisoning, I'll be sure not to buy it again. PROBLEM SOLVED.

Good.  It'll weed out the weak.

Yes, because if there's one thing that separates immigrants from natives, its hand-washing.  Americans are known around the world for their good grooming.

Or hiring illegal immigrants so you don't have to give them bathroom breaks or good facilities.

(Most of your outbreaks with produce is because the illegals have to shat in the fields)

There has been outbreaks in the past from poor sanitation by illegal workers. There is a pattern here, political correctness be damned,

Ahhh the joys of capitalism! Driving wages down to the point where only the desperate and destitute take a job you're not even willing to pay minimum wage for!  Those brave captains of industry....

The UN will then roll over our weakened and feces covered bodies.

I DID buy Foster Farms yesterday. Served the chicken breast for dinner with steamed asparagus and a side salad.
Cook your food and clean your kitchen, people.
Unless you're a poor, then you'll get sick.

Taking the lead from Republicans back during the early days of the Iraq War, "freedom fries" et al, I propose renaming "Salmonella" to "Republicanella", and "Salmonellosis" to "GOP Disease".
 
2013-10-08 01:15:25 PM  
The Free Market didn't wash its Invisible Hand?
 
2013-10-08 01:16:31 PM  
Don't worry, this food poisoning outbreak will just root out the weak in our society, while the John Galts will survive to strengthen our great nation.

Government regulation will just interfere with that natural process while holding back the entrepreneurs like John Galt from achieving their true greatness.

/this is what tea partiers actually believe.

A Dark Evil Omen: I propose renaming "Salmonella" to "Republicanella", and "Salmonellosis" to "GOP Disease".


"GOP Disease" sounds like a disease that turns you into a Republican. There's already a disease like that. It's called "dementia".
 
2013-10-08 01:17:32 PM  
More like Obamanella, amiright?

These people are a pillar of society and keep our food prices low! Don't you just hate those damn GOP socialists for trying to reduce the number of illegal workers?

If we're going that way, though, we'd have to rename a lot of things GOP Disease:

- Senile dementia
- Neurosyphilis
- Certain types of learning disabilities
- Various non-pathological forms of severe indoctrination (brainwashing)

Germ theory, folks.
Study it out.

/Yes, clean the kitchen and cook and store the food properly.

Dear Tea Party,

I would at this time like to extend a hand, a hand of compassion & understanding.  It is in the best interests of our nation to start working together to better our lives and our society.  This weekend, i would like you all to meet me and my colleagues at the Isitoveryet residence to celebrate being diverse and unified.

11:30 - Appetizers; Tea & crumpets on the front sidewalk

1:00  -  Lunch;  BBQ chicken (legs & thighs) in the grand dining/entertainment/master bedroom

2:30  -  Entertainment;  Target practice, pin the leaf on the tree of liberty, Name that Klansmen in the alley

open carry welcome, no communists (we've had trouble in the past)

Here's to hoping we can all change for the better!

Humbly,
Isitoveryet

Here's a CRAZY idea.... how about we grant amnesty to "illegal" immigrants and we pay everyone a living wage!? No? Oh that's right we don't want to cut into profits for people who have completely emancipated themselves from having to sell their labor and exist only because of their subjugation of an entire class of people.  You keep licking boot, it'll serve you well.

Yeah, that is something I won't eat if it has the tiniest bit of red in it   Article says most of the outbreak has been in CA, where I am.   Hope this clears up soon.
 
2013-10-08 01:30:58 PM  
Ugh. I just bought some Foster Farms chicken bakes at Costco, and I'm in California. Haven't eaten any yet thankfully. So do I return them, or leave them in the freezer until this government mess gets sorted out?
 
2013-10-08 01:31:51 PM  
As I've been told numerous times, the Free Market is self-correcting, and will soon have this problem resolved.
 
2013-10-08 01:32:09 PM  
Wait...there's no private market incentive to avoid giving people salmonella?

Yup. What better way to ensure the income of American workers by importing in millions more? We should double down on the H-visa program that just did WONDERS for IT and computer industry jobs! And since Farm workers are even more unskilled than IT, this can only mean that they are indispensable and jobs will be plentiful after we open the floodgates.

Pure. Genius.

When it doubt throw it out. Doesn't sound like a very relaxing meal ahead of you even if nothing goes terribly, terribly wrong...

Well fark.

I have foster farms chicken in the freezer right now.

GODDAMNIT!!!!!
