They came first for the salt and I didn’t speak up because I don’t add much salt at all.
Then they came for the sugar and I didn’t speak up because I don’t have a sweet tooth.
Then they came for the White Castles and I DID speak up, but nobody was listening.
Then they came for the salsa and by that time, no one was legally allowed to speak up.
Uber-nanny Leftist hack CNN ‘reporter’ Dr. Sanjay Gupta noted in a July 12th column on CNN.com that a Center For Disease Control And Prevention report found that 3.9 percent of foodborne outbreaks from 1998 to 2008 in restaurants were confirmed or suspected to be from salsa, guacamole or pico de gallo.
The analysis did not explore specific reasons how salsa and guacamole became contaminated, but Dr. Rajal Mody, a medical epidemiologist with the CDC in the division that researches foodborne and environmental diseases, said the existing scientific literature provides some clues.
“Salsa and guacamole are made in large batches,” he said. “Small amounts of contamination can affect lots of servings. There is the potential that salsa and guacamole are not properly refrigerated. And we know salsa and guacamole are often made from diced fresh produce items- tomatoes, cilantro, peppers, which we know have been implicated as sources in past outbreaks.”
The science is settled !
In a 10-year period, there were 136 reported ‘outbreaks’ from ‘suspected’ sources from 12 known pathogens – tragically there were 3 deaths.
Another crisis too good to waste !
Heh…… I can’t wait to see the protests begin if Teh Gubmint starts in after Salsa, Pico De Gallo and Guacamole – and of course the evil Capitalist non-green companies producing and not-regulated-enough restaurants serving the products.
Hey, can we get the talking point out that this can easily be taken as raaaaaaaaaaacist against Hispanics ? You do know that salsa is equal to ketchup as the top condiment in America, right ?
Follow the pattern that the administration has developed. If they can’t ‘nudge’ freedom, Rights, your liberty and our nation into oblivion via shutting off water to vast areas of farmland, adding layer upon layer of regulations, destroying state and local rights, then they’ll do it with publicity.
Isolate, ridicule, ‘prove’ a detriment, or force-perceive a danger to society in general…… You get the idea.
Hmmmmmmmm…… Somebody has a position in the current administration with a title combining all that kind of extra-Constitutional functionality and that somebody – a person approved by The Senate for the task – is apparently accountable to nobody (other than directly to the current POTUS).
That somebody’s name is Cass Sunstein and his title is Reichstag Minister Of Propaganda Administrator Of The White House Office Of Information And Regulatory Affairs.
