    MSRA is not only showing up in pork from several countries but also in other meats. This is a consequence of heavy antibiotic use in modern agriculture.

    Kitchen hygiene becomes even more important.

    Don't under-cook meat and poultry.
    Wash all utensils that contacted raw food with hot soapy water.
    Don't use the same utensils on cooked meat that were used when it was raw.
    Wash hands carefully after handling raw meat and poultry. With MSRA around, don't handle raw meat with bare hands if you have cuts and scrapes.

    I don't see how any of the right wingers, or anyone else, can argue with what you've wrote.

    Well thought out and right to the point.

    You need to go speak to congress... don't waste your time with trump.

    Well, now that I think of it.. don't bother with Congress... go right to the podium in the white house briefing room and tell the whole USA.

    The rule of thumb is to extract as much money as you can and gain market share.
    No more, no less.
    That is not the role of government.

    Agree with you.

    Exactly. When people claim "the rich pay most of the taxes !" they carefully forget to mention that this is just income taxes. Since the top 10% own more than 3/4 of the entire United States, it would seem correct that they should.

    But taking this a step farther, your supposition that "... it would seem logical that they should" seems to me totally illogical. Who pays the property tax on houses ? Renters ! Who pays sales tax on automobiles, clothes, everything else ? The public ! Sure, Hillary's pantsuits cost ten grand but compared to 250 million pairs of jeans every year, which is gonna be larger ? How many cars do wealthy people own compared to the general public ? 100 million cars in general circulation, how many owned by the wealthy ? If a rich guy crosses the Golden Gate Bridge he pays the same $7 as the other 10,000 cars a day. But he pays only $7, they pay $70,000. And so on.

    I'm gonna go out on a limb here and extrapolate that other than income taxes the wealthy pay two-millionths of what the general public pays. Yet all the stuff the general public pays for is what enables the wealthy to keep what they got. Without cops and jails, I know where I'm gonna go to pick up some nice paintings

    As far as the costs of being in a society go, the top 10% are getting a free ride, paid for by us underlings.

    Actually, not. The rich can also pay for more barbed wire, security cameras, armed guards and heavy weaponry than the poor.

    This doesn't help them in a *total* breakdown of society but guess what - they can also afford helicopters and personal long range jet aircraft.

    I think that guy in LA who likes boobs already proved that the whole economics dogma we were whitewashed with was a crock. Then his fixation on reproduction got him into pee cee trouble but too late, he'd already made the point.

    More realistically, the wealthy figured out a way to make even more money with no responsibilities whatever. What's not to like about that ?

    Why would they want to make america great ? It already is. For them.

    There is a lot of empirical data sowing the failings of the simplistic approach.
    I have very much always appreciated your keen mind Miguel's. There are so many different and opposing viewpoints on this site. From the state of our country the only path forward I see is to try to understand best I can a viewpoint of which I disagree with the intent on reason and the many examples which will allow more reconsideration of deeply entrenched viewpoints. To move forward wee all must learn the art or relearn it of our leaders respecting the viewpoints of all of the citizens. Mercy shown the dreamers who contribute and know only America. I must admit when I see them and their very shallow signs degrading in general the overall true character and good values Americans have I am very discouraged and dismayed and in fact shocked by the extremes on both sides. So what I see must happen is both parties working together and not be mislead by bad media which is all about the money in dividing Americans. Thinking as a salesman Trump is understood better Obama gives Trump takes it away it is simply a negotiation tactic to gain focus and attention and to gain leverage. I have and always value your intellect and high intelligence and your aggressive at times style. spinit

    True story. Many years ago I walked into a shop and a voice said "Hello". I replied "Hello".

    10 seconds or so went by and I got a "Hello" again. Yet another "Hello" back from me.

    Then I discovered I was "talking" to a parrot behind a curtain.

    Camscam, that's how I feel when "discussing" with you.

    QT:[I think that guy in LA who likes boobs ]

    What ?...I like boobs... is that a problem?

    also like lathes, grinders, fishing and deer hunting...my bad...Not

    Spent the week end at a fair grounds trade show with perhaps one customer every 10 minuets or less..with not a few passing boobs it would have been a loss day..But yes passed out information so may get a sale or a few..Yes had to come back to town for a grinding job...

    A bad day for the spots show as Youth Hunt, Squirrel Hunting and Bird Hunting opened that week end..Should have knooooded better.. $500 to be there …Better to have spent Saturday making parts.

    And the loader guy dropped a blind bout 3 feet.. just broke a corner plastic trim so an easy fix..

    If that is a true story then you really do have problems. If it had been a person behind the curtain would you have been talking to them or would you still be "talking" to them?
