Deaths of almost 600 pets tied to jerky treats

Source: Salon.com

A mysterious illness has killed nearly 600 pets, mostly dogs, and sickened over 3,600 others. And the only thing investigators know about it, according to an FDA update released today, is that it has something to do with jerky treats imported from China.

The FDA hasnít issued a formal recall, so they arenít able to name the affected brands. They are reminding people that jerky treats arenít essential to petsí diets. Until they can figure out whatís killing the animals, it might be best to seek out a different way of rewarding your dog.

I am at a loss for any logical reason to NOT issue a recall and BAN all foodstuffs, human or animal, which have caused illness in humans or animals.

The only reason I can see is GREED.

I have officially seen it all: Vagina cakes for baby showers

Seriously? We have women all over the world who can barely find enough food for themselves, never mind the baby they are delivering in squalor, and people in this country are making vagina cakes?

Somebody PLEASE tell me this is a hoax.


Just remember, they didn't believe they lost the election either

The right-wing crazies were dead certain they were going to win last November and were almost incoherent when they lost. Even Karl Rove believed they were going to win, while those of us in the "Reality-based Community" knew we were going to win. The Fox News crowd reminded me of people who followed a doomsday cult the day after the world did not end and Jesus did not show up.

And now they are saying that defaulting on the debt will not cause economic calamity. In fact, it will "firm up the markets".

There is a growing likelihood of default and an economic meltdown on par with the Great Depression.

Averting that cataclysm rests in the hands of a handful of GOP "leaders" and whether they will have the courage to turn back, or whether they will put on the track suit, drink the Kool-Aid, and wait on the Hale-Bopp comet to return.

Boehner is in a "no win" situation.

If he drives off the cliff he is out next election, if not sooner, when the villagers show up with torches and farm implements.

If he does the sane thing, he will be crucified by the Koch Brothers and their ilk who will fund a primary challenger to defeat him in 2014. Also, he will likely be deposed as Speaker before then.

Their war cry will be "It would have all worked out if it hadn't been for the meddling orange guy".
