There is nothing from the FDA that states that the cloned meat has to be labeled that way. Any package of beef or gallon of milk in the supermarket may just be from a cloned animal and yet you have no way to make the choice whether you want to eat it or not, I read a poll once which showed that more than 60% of consumers would not buy cloned beef if it was labeled, I just do not agree with it, it feels like they are slipping something into our daily life that just doesn’t need to be there, what exactly is wrong with the cattle that we have been eating all of these years without cloning? It’s all about money and not about anything more than that. If we accept this then the next thing may be bigger, after all we’ve all been eating the cloned meat and no one has died, right? I cannot stress enough how much I do not agree with it.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion on the subject, and there is mine. It is something to think about, whether you want to eat beef that was naturally born and slaughtered or if you want to put an animal into your mouth that was genetically created in a lab because it happened to have some good genes or produced more milk than the cow standing next to it. I am against it and will not eat anything that I know has a chance of being cloned livestock, unfortunately for me this includes pigs as well as cattle so I am limited to fish and fowl for now. hopefully I can get some good fishing in this year and get some fresh caught fish in the freezer so I can avoid store bought meat all together at least for some meals.As Ever
There he sat, where he could be found sitting most nights at this time, it was 6:45 pm on a Monday night and nothing particular was going on that evening, which didn’t exactly make him happy because it was New Years Eve. The kids were running around and his wife asked him what was the plan for the evening, and they both decided that since there was no sitter for the children it was going to be a couple drinks on the couch watching a movie. An agreement was made and she ran out and grabbed some Disaronno and a bottle of sour mix, while he stayed at home with the kids. Upon her return he noticed that the bag was too big to contain just the drinking paraphernalia and he asked, “What else did ya end up getting?” to which she answered with only a smile. Inside the bag was a six pack of Mike’s hard lemonade along with the Disaronno, sour mix, and 2 pints of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream, one pint of Chubby Hubby, which was very fitting, and one pint of
This is the very bottle of Disaronno and the pint of Dublin Mudslide that was bought on the night I just wrote about. it is still in the freezer.
The rest is, how do they say? History. I am the he in the short story above and the she is my lovely wife. Today he is 78 pounds lighter and has not eaten badly in ninety six days. That pint of Dublin Mudslide still lives in the freezer and in one years time from Jan 01 2008 he will enjoy it, BUT the difference is going to be that he is enjoying it on his terms, not because he could not resist it, or because he lacked the discipline or willpower to not eat it, but because on December 31st 2007 he pronounced that he would eat it in a year.
I felt like writing tonight so I thought I would post this up there for anyone who cares to read it. I do thank everyone for their support up to this point and want you all to know that it is greatly appreciated. Thank you
