Front page of the Times-Union this morning claims the first case of Mad Cow disease is suspected in America. Given the situation, I guess Mad Cow disease in America is better than Mad Moose disease in Canada.
Hey, give them enough time and they'll invent Mad Fish Disease. If Mad Cow disease is caused by cows eating meat and we know that big fish eat little fish, then it's just a matter of time. And the vegetarians will inherit the Earth!
Not necessarily Starfighter. You forgot about Mad Carrot Disease. I know, right now they are only slightly preturbed but they are just about angry and it is just a matter of time before they get mad.
Do you have the Bill Number so that we can look it up? How about the full title? I wonder how often things get twisted before they show up on the web. I tried searching firstgov.gov. Although there were speeches going back a few years, I couldn't find a bill (or a vote) from this year. With the bill number or full title I could do the search that way.
I wouldn't trust everything posted on the PETA website.

well we had it here first [UK]!!! Apart from the French not buying our beef nothing much changed and we still eat beef at least twice a week with no ill effects. Hope it is short lived,
It makes sense that every animal be tested and given a health exam before slaughter, even if the cost of that prime rib does go up a bit. I.M.H.O. God knows they check other animals for diseases like salmonella, etc.
