...that will be ignored by the media, described as job-killing and "socialistic" by the Right, and labeled a giveaway to our Corporate Food Overlords by the Left.
Where are the jobs, Governor Walker???

look around on DKOS - this administration just can't do Fuck-all. Except when it does.

...somewhere that Glenn Beck is claiming that this bill was passed to make meat more expensive so the government could make more of us vegetarians.

My husband was speechless this morning over coffee after hearing Beck's ridiculous statement. That guy is a total and utter LOON.

gave us food safety laws to begin with, no wonder Beck has to demonize this, or else, he might be forced to conclude that progressives aren't all evil.

it would have been a giveaway to our corporate overlords. And it was until very recently that the Tester Amendment was in doubt.

I only know about CNN but they are doing nightly pieces (until the 8th, I guess) about Lennon. Last night's was an interview with his killer's wife. I thought that was kind of odd.

But does it solve any of our deeper, systemic problems? I'm all for safer food. Really, I am. And this looks, at least, like a decent bill to accomplish that. But is it going to move unemployment from 10% back down to 4 or 5%? Is it going to stop hundreds of thousands of people from losing their jobs? Is it going to balance the budget, end our wars, punish torturers and other war criminals, secure loose nuclear material, prevent fraud and insider trading and executive self-dealing from continuing to wreck our economy, mitigate global warming, or break up corporate oligopolies? Any one of these is a much bigger threat to our continued viability as a nation than voluntary vs. mandatory food recalls. So, while I tentatively (until I see the details and a signature on a final bill) applaud this measure, I continue to mourn the failures and squandered opportunities.

into something of a more concrete issue that is easy for most people (crosses ideology lines) to identify with, you can come up with solutions. In other words, get some needed things done. Start small and work your way up, is another way to look at it too. Please remember, it is important even if it doesn't solve everything. Thxs.
