"Beware of what you eat. You are on your own."

Senator Tom Harkin announces to Americans in Senate Agriculture Hearing. U.S. Senators say public health officials failed the public. “To say that food safety in this country is a patchwork system is giving it too much credit. Food safety in America has too often become a hit-or-miss gamble, and that is truly frightening. When Americans can’t count on the safety of basic items that go into our children?s lunch boxes, then we are in big trouble.”

Comforting words from the people who are supposed to be on our side, the ones who are supposed to be protecting us – the government of these United States. The ones who are charged to serve the people of this great country, but we see dodging the tax man, and selling senate seats to the highest bidder. Don’t get me started..

Ok, we’re done. I mean it. If we can’t grow it, raise it, harvest it, we don’t need it. No more prepacked stuff. Even our Peanut Butter. Yes, we bought the peanuts, but in the next month we’ll be planting our own. No more junk from the grocery store in convenient little packs. It’s like playing Russian roullete with food. I am soooooo tired of all of this – paying taxes to line the pockets of Citibank and GM execs while we quake in fear because the FDA supposedly doesn’t have enough money to safeguard our friggin’ food. It gives me indigestion to think about it. Or maybe it’s the salmonella talking.

Until next time…..

    So, instead of going to Fresh Market, we’ll just come there! šŸ™‚
