Buy Me a Beer

Here's where I shamelessly beg for patronage. If you like what I'm doing, I dunno, maybe buy me a beer? I need your shares and tweets too! Thanks for reading.


The Obama administration is preparing to finalize a dangerous new rule for how chickens in the United States are inspected. If the rule is finalized, food safety inspection staff would be slashed, at the same time that production line speeds are allowed to accelerate. As a result, chickens contaminated by feces, bile and scabs would not be pulled from the line, but instead would "pass" the new inspection standards and then simply be rinsed in an anti-microbial bleach solution before being packaged and sold to consumers.
