    Default US twists Taiwan's arm to allow drug-laced beef

    Who do they think they are to tell us what is safe?

    We decide what is safe.

    This is not the way Government is supposed to work. The reason it's
    allowed in 20 other countries is because we strong-armed them, too.
    Do you know how many politicians is took to accomplish all this
    bull**** when it's a metter of private industry that the goverment
    shouldn't even be dealing with int eh first place.

    The meat and drug lobbies combined probably outweigh any other single
    lobby. It the long run, wouldn't it have been easier just not to feed
    the pigs racto-whatever? The meat packer saves money on feed and can
    charge more for the meat. I would think Taiwan would want some good
    old fashioned fatty pork bellies. And that drug is probably the
    reason our pork has gone to ****, too.

    Greed and corruption. It'll eventually get better, right?

    Your sarcasm is noted. But I think it's still necessary to address
    your last statement. No it won't get better. We (I'm in Canada; but
    this applies to the US as well), the people (in general), keep our
    heads in the sand or behave like sheep and go baaaah whenever new
    legislation comes out. As long as people don't see that the
    government is corrupt, then it won't get better. I suppose that's an
    obvious statement. Lobbying itself in its current state is 'a' root
    of corruption.
