Is the Government Mad For Not Testing More Cows?
Last Friday the Bush administration asked a federal appeals court to stop allowing meatpackers to test all animals for mad cow disease. That's right, the government wants companies to test fewer animals. Currently, under Agriculture Department guidelines, less than 1 percent of slaughtered cows are tested for the disease. Yet due to a lower court ruling, Kansas-based Creekstone Farms Premium Beef has been granted the ability to more comprehensively test their beef.

Oooh, if you ate a mad cow, you would be pretty mad yourself, until your brain melts and oozes out your ears until it explodes. Just test the beef, for goodness sake.I guess it's a Texas thing. Cattlemen and Oilmen don't wanna follow any rules, especially if the rules cut into their profits.

NCLB! Hysterical!After I saw the "low quality" cow being electrocuted in order to be processed, I have only had beef twice. I just don't have a taste for it anymore...and I come from a beef state where we LOVE our steak. Just can't do it anymore. I don't trust the regulations that are supposed to keep us safe, and I also don't like the environmental consequences of massive beef farms.

And if the cows flunk the essay part of the test, their state gets cut out of the farm bill.

Actually the Administration has a "no cows left behind" plan that will ensure that cows are tested regularly.

The Bush Administration would do away with all public safety regulations if it could - look how long it took to discover that the airlines weren't doing required inspections on older planes.
