"There are perverse incentives for the lobbyists to take extreme positions that heighten their reputation as street fighters, even in situations where statesmen capable of crafting policy compromises and winning back consumer confidence would serve the industry's own interests better."

I could agree more.
The recall is little more than a marketing ploy.

People are worried about their food - and so they should be.

Until PACs are restrained from unduly influencing Congress, and the USDA abolished, it is my opinion things will only grow worse for the majority of American Consumers.

However, I also believe that for the first time in many years, small farmers like myself will have a real economic chance to make a go at farming again due to the increased demand for safe eggs, milk, beef, chicken, lamb and pork.
