And now we have the ever-appetizing, "Pink Slime". Me thinks they need a better marketing guy working on this account. The "insider" name for this stuff is, "Lean Finely Textured Beef (LFTB)". Ah, that makes it all better.
The beef industry is in full panic mode with a, "Top 8 Myths Of "Pink Slime" [link] web page. Hey, it's only got a "puff" of ammonia in it. Quit yer bitchin'......
Here's a shocking story: There was another slaughter at a gun free zone.
OAKLAND – Police said seven people were dead and three others injured after a gunman opened fire Monday at a small Korean Christian school.This freak first shot the front office staff then moved through the school. Hmmm. How might this have turned out differently if one or more of the front office staff was carrying a concealed weapon. 1,2,3,4 or more LIVING human beings, perhaps?
Isn't it the left who always hits us with, "If only one life is saved for [pick a cause] it's worth the effort"? So shouldn't they all be out marching to have our Constitutional right to carry a gun restored?
Sorry, it isn't always the left who does this. It's the right as well. USA PATRIOT act, DUI checkpoints, come to mind.
"If just one [drunk driver, terrorist] is stopped by shitting on your rights, it's worth it."
No. It's not. Life has risks, liberty has risks.
Anyone keeping a tally of the number of slaughters occurring in Gun Free Zones, versus slaughters that happen in Heavily Armed Zones like police stations?
An hour or so ago, the Federal Reserve minutes came out. In short, they said that they didn't think the [totally manipulated] unemployment numbers were any good [HAHAHAHA!] and the economy might be in for some trouble. Duh.
Logic says that means the economy - thus the dollar - are at risk. In fact, it would be an occasion where the Fed would break out the old Quantitative Easing playbook, and start crankin' out dollars. Lube up the economy really well.
Instead - illogically - the talking heads on TV are saying that the markets view this as an occasion where the Fed will tighten (?!) the money supply, making the dollar strong and PMs weak.
Gold dropped $30+ an ounce in the blink of an eye. Can you spell m-a-n-i-p-u-l-a-t-i-o-n?
'Splain it to me, Lucy....
The various stock markets ALSO dropped like stones, but that makes sense, as a perceived weaker economy (or one where a visible public official acknowledges it sucks) will hurt the sales for most businesses.
I quit. Gimme a cave, a cot and a carbine. This is just insane.
