I think a healthy lack of trust in any part of government is a good idea. When was the last time the government actually did a good job?

I'm not saying that I'm paranoid about the government. Just that they tend to be incompetent and/or inefficient most of the time.

When it comes to food safety, they are probably doing much more harm than good because people are going to let down their guard because many have come to expect that the FDA/USDA/etc is going to ensure that the food is safe.

Safer to assume that nothing is being done to protect ourselves and always stay on guard.

Sadly, you are correct.

while shopping for cactus pears in the fry's today, i noticed a large sign proclaiming "made in u.s.a." But the sticker on the actual cactus pear said "made in chile." maybe the sign was made in u.s.a.? just a reminder that it's almost impossible to really know the truth.

unless of course we recently annexed chile and i missed the story.

When will people learn that toast is the answer? Toast will not hurt you. Toast is your friend. Embrace the yoyo, my brother.

Toby: It was a stealth annexation.

Yoyo: Make sure you toast the toast to a crisp, otherwise you risk getting salmonella poisoning.

We should be so lucky. Yoyo freak.

Play nice.

I wish that all states did a good job in regulating food, after all, they do spends millions of dollars in the attempt. But I think you are right, food safety comes down to us. We need to be informed so that we can prevent bad food from entering our homes.
