That damned FDA

What's Mallard raving about today?

Fast Food, the FDA.

So, no change at all, then?

Ever since Burger King discontinued the Sourdough Bacon Cheeseburger, I haven't been able to step into a fast food place.

Time for another installment of "Corporations screw over dumb people, and convince them that it's the government's fault". Wheeeee~!

Judging by that white hamburger bun, they're well on their way.

I love it when Batshit attempts another baloney-based shot at Bigg Gubbermint and it comes out something else entirely.

It's tough, though, to get normal people worked into a lather over apple slices or getting rid of Happy Meals, even if you wrap it in a nice That Damn Uppity Negro Woman conspiracy. But the wrongwingers give it their all.

Next up: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic uses the word "holidays" in the episode "Winter Wrap Up." IT'S A WAR ON CHRISTMAS!!!1 (Also we suspect one of 'em's a lesbian! And Magic is Satanism!!)

The wrong-wingers (incl. tea partiers) line of thinking is that the food industry should be able to sell all of the salmonella and e.coli tainted food that they want. Get rid of the FDA, inspectors, and all of that. According to the "Food Inc." movie, Bush got a good start on it by putting industry insiders in charge of the agencies.


Tinsley: Sociopath said...

Taste is an antonym of fast food, so I decided to list some antonyms of Tinsley and Mallard Fillmore:

Erudite, expatiate, transcendent, ingenious, discrete, Martin Luther King, Mahatmas Ghandi.

I learned two words today that can be used as synonyms, though: Mallard Fillmore and Tinsley are numinously jejune.

Sophocles was wrong: Tinsley has never had any hope of good, nor would he ever have done any good if given the opportunity.

Only Mallard Fillmore has the guts to say that something made of pre-processed junk and full of worthless corporate-funded crap and slapped together for consumption at the last minute with extreme laziness is...
Sorry! I thought that he was talking about his strip.

Lots of what today passes for conservative hold out the fantasy that they don't really need a federal FDA; they can look out for themselves!
It doesn't help to ask them if they know how to conduct an e coli test, because they'll just bluster, kinda of like today's "comic"
