Just imagine how awful it would be if he were on the side of the 20 little children who were slaughtered in Newtown.
No more pink slime, please
I’m writing in response to the AP article in the paper about “pink slime.”
This bothers me because we grew up knowing what was in our ground beef — it was meat, not trimmings treated with ammonia. Ground meat, on the other hand, does not have to be treated with ammonia to be safe to eat.
I personally don’t want to eat it anymore. Maybe it is 100 percent pure beef but so is ground bone meal and the dried hooves we feed our dogs. The trimmings they make “pink slime” from used to be made into dog food.
So if ammonia makes it safe to eat, it should be added to the label of contents on the packaging, as: “This items contains ‘pink slime’ or as ‘lean finely textured beef’ added with ammonia to make it safe for human consumption.”
I want my ground beef made from meat. Look it up on the Internet yourselves. YUCK!
The high price of Obamacare
As a small business owner, I have spent hours studying what Obamacare will cost me. It is going to be tens of thousands of dollars. Since the government won’t let me print money, the only funds I will have to pay this is what I get from customers. So, customers, prepare yourselves for substantial price increases at many of the businesses you patronize.
You didn’t really believe Obama when he said we could add 30 million people to insurance rolls, eliminate annual and lifetime maximums and mandate free preventive and contraceptive care and not pay more for it, did you?
