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

*** begin quote ***

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!

WND EXCLUSIVE
Rush Limbaugh unloads on fleeing advertisers
‘You won’t get apologies from people like Bill Maher
by Joe Kovacs

*** begin quote ***

PALM BEACH, Fla. – Radio giant Rush Limbaugh offered a second apology to a Georgetown University graduate student today after calling her a “slut” and “prostitute” last week, saying he descended to the level of the left, and added he would replace the advertisers who have abandoned his show over the controversy.

“I became like the people we oppose. I ended up descending to their level,” Limbaugh said. “It’s important not to be like them, particularly in fighting them.”

So, since I’ve been watching this train wreck unfold, I found: (1) the gal is NOT a 23 year old with a legitimate gripe; (2) she’s actually a political type; (3) contraception is freely available from Target two blocks from the school for 9$/month; (4) Rush apologized (sort of); (5) President Obama stoked the fire; just like his MO with the “beer summit”; and (6)  she’s enjoying her 15 minutes of fame.

So, just like I wrote in support of Don Imus, I wrote CARBONITE in SUPPORT of Rush. And will write to the others.

I’m not a Rush fan. I have listened him. He’s too “conservative” and supports the “warfare state” while he rails against the “welfare state”. But, he may have been a little dumb too. He should have suspect that this was a trap. But he fell for it. I would have to, but than I’m just a blogger; not a “trained broadcast professional”.

I’m outraged by the media’s selective outrage. The way they treated Sarah Palin. And, the lack of uproar when the “liberal” democratic operatives disguised as media commentators talked about Monica Crowley, Laura Ingram, and Michelle Malkin is biased. Some of those comments were a lot worse!

EMAIL TO CARBONITE:

In SUPORT of RUSH, I came to sign up another computer. But I found out that you’ve abandoned him. Take a look at the situation again. True, he went over the line, but she was a trap. She’s not what she claims to be, and it’s becoming OBVIOUS that this a Democratic dirty trick. When you go back to him, so to I will come back to you.

Other emails will be going out to: AOL, ProFlowers, Quicken Loans, mattress retailers Sleep Train and Sleep Number, software maker Citrix Systems, data-backup service provider Carbonite and online legal document services company LegalZoom.

JOBSEARCH: Sue Simmons – poster girl of age discrimination

WNBC Cutting Longtime Anchor Sue Simmons – TVSpy

Age discrimination?

This morning Imus was very positive about Sue. I like her. There was some question as to how much money she makes. But that was dismissed as not the real reason. “They want some blonde young girl.”

Us old job seekers know the ugly truth: Age DOES make a difference.

Too bad! We, as a society, better figure the old age problem. “We” have to align the Social Security Retirement Age and Life Expectancy Tables. To do that, folks will have to work later into life. If employers discriminate, this will be impossible.

So Sue Simmons is the poster girl for future age discrimination.
