US government buys 7 million pounds of ‘pink slime’ for America’s children.

Pink slime is when they take all the cow parts left over after everything usable has been removed from a cow, grind it up, sterilize it with ammonium hydroxide (which may not work), then shape it into burgers and other food-like products.

Pink slime is so nasty and controversial even McDonald’s, Burger King and Taco Bell have stopped using it. But a new report says the US government is buying 7 million pounds of it to feed to America’s school children.

Argh!

Everyone who reads my stuff or talk to me knows that I think the Gooferment is the problem.

Anyone doubt that is true after reading this story.

Can there be any redeeming value in “pink slime”?

Sure, if some private company wants to risk their own money to provide a budget product and consumers buy it, then there’s the value.

Unfortunately, when the Gooferment buys you a steak, pink slime is what you get.

Separation of Gooferment from EVERYTHING!
