Country of Origin Labeling!

The House of Representatives has voted to repeal country-of-origin labeling (COOL) for beef, pork, and chicken.

Texas Republican Rep. Michael Conaway’s Country of Origin Labeling Amendments Act of 2015 passed late Wednesday night by a 300-131 vote.

Conaway introduced the bill on May 18 — the same day the World Trade Organization rejected a U.S. appeal of its decision that COOL unfairly discriminates against meat imports and gives the advantage to domestic meat products.

COOL, which went into effect for meat in 2013, require that packaging indicate the country, or countries, where animals were born, raised and slaughtered.

So now we get the message! Americans don’t give a shit! The House of Representatives and other agencies have pretty much put the nail in the coffin! Why should you care where your food comes from? Why does it matter what we put in our bodies? We eat at horrible dining establishments, shovel food down our throats and wonder why we are so fat while we lounge in our comfortable seat, watching television and going to sleep because we don’t exercise! And now? The US Government doesn’t give a rat’s ass where our beef, pork or chicken “Country of Origin” is located! The House of Representatives has voted to repeal country-of-origin labeling (COOL) for beef, pork, and chicken. Texas Republican Rep. Michael Conaway’s Country of Origin Labeling Amendments Act of 2015 passed late Wednesday night by a 300-131 vote. So why should we give a shit where our food is being raised? Our politicians don’t really care and once again it derives from Texas, that Lone Star community of right…. oh, forget it! The point is we are in big trouble in this country if we don’t take the “bull” by the horns and take control of our lives!

So the question is what’s next? As we pulverize the entire food chain it leaves one suspicious to think someone has it out for us! I am not a conspiracist, but I do see a pattern developing. Are we over-populated? Are there just too many human beings on this planet? Could it be possible that a reduction in the number of human souls on this planet needs to implemented. Seriously, we eat horribly, we are either too fat or too skinny, we watch way too much television, we text too much, play lots of video games and the worst part, we socialize on social media providing very little human interaction! So it leaves all you idiots to read posts like this to give you life, some sort of sustenance, since you probably eat crap food and care less where the quality of your food originates! Pathetic! I am sorry if this offends you, actually, no I’m not, but if it riles you, pisses you off, then maybe, just maybe, we will start looking for solutions! That cannot happen while sitting down in your favorite chair, doing nothing but wasting time while the world turns and burns. Pathetic!

May I offer a solution? This may not fit well with you fast food, potato chip eating, smelly body odor people who think the world owes you a favor and gives no care for fellow human beings and the planets overall health, but here I go, like it or not! Still here? Pathetic! Here I go anyway! Shop local! Yes, that’s what I said, shop local! If we as Americans want to preserve any kind of dignity and respect in our culinary lives, then shopping locally is the solution! This is not something new, nor is it for the back to the earth hippy type of lifestyle. This is what our ancestors, our Grandparent, the Founding Fathers based nearly 100% of their diet upon, eating quality meats, fresh produce, newly slain chickens for their meals. So, if you are a true blooded American, and I’m not sure you are, except for the fact you just spout off your loyalty like someone in a trance, yet have no clue to what is right and just, then this may be what you’re looking for in making some positive changes in country and self!
