Government Criminal Incompetence Can Kill You

Government meatheads make 9-million-pound blunder
For all the medical mumbo jumbo and 50-cent phrases we like to throw around, there’s one word you’ll NEVER hear a doctor say — not even under his breath.
That’s because when one of us makes a mistake, a pack of rabid wolves armed with law degrees descend from the hills, stealing your home, emptying your bank account, and leaving your reputation in tatters.
No, friend, there’s only one group of bungling morons who regularly kill people on the job and never seem to face any consequences. And, unfortunately, they’re responsible for safeguarding our food.
In what may be the grossest display of government incompetence since Jimmy Carter tried to rescue the hostages, the U.S. Department of Agriculture is rushing to recall nearly 9 million pounds of rotting beef that could kill you faster than a bullet to the gut.
And it’s all because some taxpayer-funded boob forgot to do his job.
The USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service released a statement claiming that 8.7 million pounds of meat from California’s Rancho Feeding Corporation came from “diseased and unsound animals” and that there’s a “reasonable probability” it could poison you to death.
Now I know what you’re thinking — how exactly do 4,300 TONS of diseased, deadly steaks make it to our supermarket shelves? Well, according to the slick, silver-tongued bureaucrats at the USDA, the meat didn’t have the “full benefit of federal inspection.”
You know what that’s code for, right? Oops.
This wasn’t some sketchy trailer packed with ribeyes that Rancho Feeding dispatched at 3 a.m. under cover of darkness. This was a FULL YEAR’S SUPPLY of the company’s meat, and nobody from the government checked to see if the cows were crawling with disease.
I don’t know about you, friend, but I’ve had it up to here with the tired excuses. I’m sick of the bald-faced lies about how we don’t have enough food inspectors on the job. The taxpayers of this great country give the USDA nearly $150 BILLION a year to keep our food safe and they’re still falling down on the job like a drunken figure skater.
Listen, I don’t expect Uncle Sam to monitor every small-time sap selling T-bones out of his trunk. But when a company is moving 9 million pounds of meat into the market, I sure as heck expect the USDA to know about it.
Stop trusting these lazy, overpaid government flunkies with your life. The next steak you buy should come from a local farm when you can personally inspect the conditions, the cows, and how they live. Because, trust me, that may be the only way to keep you, and your family, safe.

The federal government’s food inspection system does not work. Again and again, there are reports of tainted food. This is criminal negligence.
People die from tainted food while the politicians do NOTHING.
Another reason why the federal government needs to be total changed.
The facts no one wants to read.
