Thanks Mike! You ruined football Sunday's for me!!
If you're still eating chicken, you're not reading the news.

Factory farming is nasty business, I tell you. A sudden rash of reports is beginning to reveal the horrible reality of industrial chicken farming.

A piece in The New York Times by +Nicholas Kristof points out that "poultry on factory farms are routinely fed caffeine, active ingredients of Tylenol and Benadryl, banned antibiotics and even arsenic." Scientists at Johns Hopkins University who studied the industry says "It’s unbelievable what we found."

Why caffeine? It turns out that chickens are fed coffee pulp to keep them awake all night so they keep eating and become fatter.

A previous study found that 90% of chickens raised for meat were fed arsenic.

Most chicken farmers don't even know what they're feeding the chickens, as the pre-packaged feed ingredients are a trade secret.

Obama's USDA, meanwhile, is springing into action. The department wants to stop inspecting poultry plants and allow employees of the plant do the inspections. That would enable factory food assembly lines to process 200 chickens per minute, rather than the 140 per minute currently possible.

A pilot program for the plant employee inspections found that they "were missing defective poultry at high rates."

From another Times article: "The inspectors, whose names were redacted, said they had observed numerous instances of poultry plant employees allowing birds contaminated with fecal matter or other substances to pass. And even when the employees try to remove diseased birds, they face reprimands, the inspectors said."

I hate hanging out with MC Hammer. He never let's me touch anything.

"If we are going to make the president a haggard shell of a human being by the time he leaves the White House, we need four more years of never compromising, four more years of miring every piece of legislation in unnecessary procedural muck, four more years of pretending we want to work with the president and then walking away from the table at the last second," McConnell added.

My questiosn of the day: Many companies offer Leadership Development Programs for entry level postions. How recent is a "recent grad"?

Stolen from the book of "Wow, That's Sad and True": Women might be able to fake orgasms. But men can fake a whole relationship. (And no, this doesn't apply to me)
