Well, I guess my view is, is that this is a real ray of hope, in that the internet and "public" discussion of issues (i.e. "public" meaning "on the
internet") can make a real difference! I was vegetarian for a few years, but gave it up, because I love meat! I don't like pink slime, though. When
I buy hamburger (not too often) I buy the most expensive. It probably still had pink slime in it. When I eat steak, I go for the more expensive
cuts, usually. (Meat glue anyone?) I don't know if there are any guarantees these days when it comes to safe and quality consumer products. I
joined this forum partly because I like the paranormal and NDE/metaphysical type stuff, and also because I like a good conspiracy theory. My feelings
towards conspiracy theories is this: I take the more specific or far out ones (like "earth is ruled by reptilian Illuminati slavemasters from outer
space") with a grain of salt or less, but they are fun!
The elite do behave like reptilian aliens sometimes. My conspiracy theory is a very general one: some people will do anything to increase their
profits, and the relationship between corporations and the government is too cozy. Pink slime was a way to increase profits by selling "meat" unfit
for human consumption to an unwary public (hey, I really didn't even know before this story broke!) with no concern for the health and well-being of
ordinary people like you and me. Ever read "The Jungle" by Upton Sinclair? This sort of thing is nothing new. Everything but the squeal! I for one
don't mind paying more for quality meat. If I want to save money, I'll make a nice bean soup.
