    gruberment welfare payments to corporations
    are some of it’s biggest expenditures
    trillions to the banksters
    trillions in weapon based “foriegn aid”
    billions to the food giants directly & indirectly
    butt
    I don’t begrudge welfare payments to corps
    I juz want my fair share

    fuck yeah, end the subsidies, fuck the corporate communists. Long live the free market!

  3. Who eats hamburger anymore?

  4. This is really disappointing from Abby. She didn’t do her homework on this one. There are a lot of questions surrounding the Rancho recall as this slaughter plant also processed grassfed beef for a lot in independent growers including Niman. Not one illnesses has been reported to the FSIS from this recall.
