Superbugs in Factory-farmed Meats

Leave a comment

From: Whole Food USA: link

An AP article headlined Pressure Rises to Stop Antibiotics in Agriculture made the front page today that will help to educate consumers about the type of factory-farm meat they are eating. With the heavy use of antibiotics, the chickens, pigs and cows develop dangerous organisms in and on their infection-suppressed carcasses and end up on the dinner plate. This has long known been a reason for creation of superbugs and antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria , but it is good to see this information is going more mainstream; and, all the more reason to eat naturally raised beef, chickens, pork and other meats.

The article does not cover the hazards of genetically-engineered feed or cloned animals, but ironically the story is from show-me-state town of Frankenstein, Missouri. Here are some excerpts:

Researchers say the overuse of antibiotics in humans and animals has led to a plague of drug-resistant infections that killed more than 65,000 people in the U.S. last year — more than prostate and breast cancer combined. And in a nation that used about 35 million pounds of antibiotics last year, 70 percent of the drugs went to pigs, chickens and cows. Worldwide, it’s 50 percent. Read more

Fact is Indeed Stranger than Fiction

There really was a new Presidential Executive Order issued December 30, 2009 in relation to Terrorism in the United States. No – the “Alphabet Connection” was not “officially” released (Wink. Wink), but it seems that the “We” in my reporting from yesterday has decreed through an Official real and truly true Executive Order as reported in the NY Times (http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2009/12/30/us/politics/AP-US-Anthrax-Attack.html):

“If the nation ever faces a large-scale attack by a biological weapon like anthrax, the U.S. Postal Service will be in charge of delivering whatever drugs and other medical aid Americans would need to survive.”

Stop that! Now wipe off the keyboard and monitor. Good. Listen to We (oops) me.

Who better to be “in charge of dispensing ”medical countermeasures” to biological weapons because of its ”capacity for rapid residential delivery.””

Hey – lets deputize them as “Visiting Nurses” under the new “Obama Health Care Plan” and provide syringes too! That’ll get the economy rolling!

Personally I would have chosen FedEx or UPS.  My reasoning is that neither of their managements could afford to “stuff mail into closets and unused rooms at mail facilities in Waterbury and Wallingford because they don’t know how to keep up with such a high volume of mail…” That might be because their shareholders actually expect them to be profitable. Unlike the USPS which somehow managed to operate in the red to the tune of $68.09 million dollars in 2009 while still raising rates.

Or how about Wal-Mart? That corporation is the largest non-union civilian employer in the United States with 1.3 million employees (USPS has a paltry 656,000 unionized workers). Wait a minute – I see what that sneaky “We” guy is doing. You silly bugger – it’s a “bait and switch” tactic to pay back the Union Bosses that “We” ripped off behind closed doors during the Health Care debacle after they elected “We”.

Another little goodie is this one:

“Under the new order, federal agencies must develop a response plan that includes possible law enforcement escorts for Postal Service workers and gives anthrax ”primary threat consideration.””

One might question whether the “unionized” law enforcement escorts are there to “escort” or enforce, but that is going way too far. And why “anthrax”? Could it have anything to do with this story out of New Hampshire in which a third case of “natural” anthrax was identified  from African drums – wait – isn’t Nigeria in Africa?

Maybe I was wrong. Maybe yesterdays Executive Order could merge with todays Executive Order and save the “free-ish” World.

Excuse me. Off to call “We” in Hawaii.

Tri-Partisan Blue Ribbon Panel Investigation Reveals “Alphabet Connection”

1 Comment

After much discussion and an in-depth tri-partisan Blue Ribbon Panel Investigation lasting 72 hours, the White House today released it’s findings on the 8 Terrorist attacks in the last 6 months of the year:

1.The last Administration is responsible for not doing enough or doing too much depending on what was done.
2.Calling the Terrorists, well Terrorists, has hurt their itty bitty little feelings and made them “madder than a wet hen”.
3.All of the individuals involved have used, gasp, letters in their names. Some have even had the audacity to use multiple vowels!
4.Many have used garments to conceal and/or disguise the tools being used to perpetuate said “Domestic Badness”.

In order to discourage the “Really Bad Badness”, the following Executive Order has been put forth:

“By virtue of the authority vested in me as President by myself, the Chicago Political Machine and the Hope and Change Committee, including whichever statute and non-verified International Treaty that We call upon as an Independent Ruling Body, it is hereby ordered that:

1.All Administration Officials whom have served from  August 4th, 1961 forward and had the audacity to pass laws allowing for anything other than what I have deemed acceptable (except for the Officials currently serving in the House or Senate which support my Agenda), be removed from office.

2.No longer will we refer to the “T” word. Now we shall use “Bad Guys” (BG) in referring to the individuals who do “Bad Stuff” (BS).

3.All Global Citizens who use letters in their name, especially if multiple vowels are used, shall be placed upon the “Super-Dee-Duper Watch List” (SDDWL). (With the following exceptions of whom will be placed on the “Not Super-Dee-Super Watch List” (NSDDWL): CIA, FBI, POTUS, ACLU, ACORN, SIEU, etc.)

4.No individual, no matter what their status, who has been placed upon the SDDWL will be allowed to wear garments that are concealing in any manner.

The above decrees are not intended to abridge in any respect the privileges, exemptions or immunities which such Global Citizens may have acquired or may acquire by international agreement or by Congressional action. Those shall be “null and void” due to the power invested in me and because We said so.

Now off with their heads!

What? You mean we can’t do that? We had to put it before the quotation marks? Okay Rahm, if you say so… Can I still be “We”?

Mexican Marine Families revenge slaying shocks the world and 4 members of the feared Leyva drug cartel arrested

MEXICO CITY – Mexican Drug Cartel (MDC’s) assailants Tuesday gunned down the mother, aunt and siblings of a marine killed in a raid that killed who many believe was Mexico’s most powerful cartel leader Arturo Beltran Leyva. Police say that action has sent a chilling message to all Mexico’s troops, Federal Police and all who battle the drug war: It says to them you go after us, we wipe out your, Mothers, Fathers, Sisters, Brothers and your Children and all your family. The families of soldiers and police are now going to suffer for the government’s campaign against MDC’s and other drug traffickers it is feared. More

The Enumerated Powers Act

Leave a comment

 This latest dispatch from DownsizeDC should be read by every one.  Understand, congress does not have the authority to pass most of the legislation they then call “laws” and that these so-called “laws” are not enforceable. ___________

D o w n s i z e r – D i s p a t c h


The Enumerated Powers Act (EPA) requires that every bill must specify its source of Constitutional authority. This would prove very embarrassing to Congress, because there is no Constitutional authority for most of what they pass.

Good news!

Two more House members have co-sponored EPA over the past month, bringing the toal to 56. Sadly, the Senate is still stuck at 22 co-sponsors. You can find . . .

* The House co-sponsors here:  * And the Senate co-sponsors here:

Let’s flood Congress with letters demanding that every member co-sponsor the Enumerated Powers Act.

Here is what I wrote in my letter . . . More

RFID Bling For Bovines – Just In Time For The New Year

Just when you thought you’d heard it all, something comes along that makes you say “Hm. I just wonder”.

While surfing around the UHF-RFID livestock world, I came across a new and snazzy tag. Trust me folks – you want to pass on this one.

While a cutie-wootie-slick-forward-looking tag can be an extra bonus in selling (riigghhtt) – this one has the stink of the National Animal Identification System (NAIS) plastered all over it. Why would one think that? Here we go (links are provided at conclusion for ease of  review):

USDA approves eTattoo from Eriginate as First Official UHF Identification Device (1) That headline should cause one to wonder and the opening comment begs for investigation:

“Eriginate Corporation announced today the approval of its eTattoo tag by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). The approval marks the first ultra-high radio frequency identification tag (UHF RFID) and the first non-low frequency tag (LF) to be approved for use with the “840” Animal Identification Number (AIN)”

Just whom is on the board of this  “Eriginate”? (2)

Why surprise surprise the Director is one Mr. Doran Junek. As his bio (3) clearly states, he has all the bells and whistles required to position this firm for the first “approved” eTattoo:

Lobbying responsibilities – check
Member of the Bovine Species Working Group for NAIS – check
Affiliation (past or present?) with Cargill – Check
“Key industry Contacts” – Check

…but that’s just my opinion.

Of course as “Advisors” (4) go, the most interesting could be Gerardo Flores of famed NASA affiliation. Nah. While his specialty could ensure that once we go “solar system wide” the critters could be properly traced, that’s a few years in the future, so lets see….here’s an interesting character. More

 Mexico’s unbelievable record breaking level of violent war deaths are piling up as casualties of Mexico’s on going civil war continues. These killings in Mexico are reveled by no country even other countries with active war zones such as Iraq and Afghanistan.

Thousands of people died in what the Mexican Government calls drug-related violence this year as Mexican Drug Cartels (MDC’s) and trained enforcer gangs fought each other, the Mexican Army and Mexico’s security forces.   Mexican border protesters earlier this year told this reporter that the MDC’s claim they are dedicated to over throwing the current Calderon government and the government is hiding the true Mexican army death totals.
