Anyone have a quality argument against term limits?

Seems to me that politicians making a career out of one position are just developing their own little fiefdoms and not really serving their constituents. I think term limits would reduce the back scratching, pork barreling crap and make politicians work with a more genuine and uniform goal of serving their country not themselves.

We have elections so the people can choose who in their opinion is best serves the needs of the country, state, or municipality. If a politician is self serving, then people should not reelect the person. However, if a person is intelligent, well informed, and a great leader, there should not be any limits set by law that restricts his term of service. I believe in informed electors, not term limits.

Cattle Decapitation Bovine, Swine And Human Rinds

Album: Human Jerky
Lyrics:
Deep in the butchery
Spurs a concoction of human innards
Sauteed and boiled with poultry and swine
The stench is unbearable
Twitching, severed, lifeless
To be ground into filler
Grade D yet edible
Innocent you lie-the stench wont die!
In bloody piles of swine-my god, the stench!
Blistered and cauterized-stench of burnt flesh!
Of bovine and swine-and sapien rinds
Intestines and fatty tissue swept aside, theres more
In line to die

Since humans are just a form of animal, aren’t we being cannibalistic when we eat the meat of other animals?

HEALTH CONCERNS ABOUT MEAT
What’s the beef with meat? This question can be answered in two nutritional words: fat and cholesterol.

Too much fat. No matter how you slice it, meat is high in fat. Unlike milk, in which you can separate out part or all of the fat, you can never get rid of all the fat in meat, no matter how well you trim it. Even the lean parts are laced with fat. Extra lean select-grade beef contains around seven percent fat.

Wrong fat. Not only is there too much fat in meat, it’s the wrong kind. Nearly half the fat in meat is the artery-clogging, saturated type. And, of course, meat is also high in cholesterol. Beef fat is more saturated than poultry fat because the bacteria in the ruminant stomach of cattle hydrogenate, or saturate, the fats in the plants that cows eat. It’s like having a fat factory inside the food source.

Fat without fiber. Unlike meat, plant foods that are low in fat and high in fiber tend to pass through the intestines rapidly, causing less upset and fewer problems, such as gastroesophageal reflux. Meat has a double fault. It’s high in fat and contains no fiber, so it takes longer to empty from the stomach and pass through the intestines. While most people do not experience "indigestion" from meat, those who suffer from reflux should not eat much meat, as it may aggravate the problem.

Problems with protein. Not only are the fats in meat unhealthy, meat proteins have also recently come under fire. Recent evidence suggests that animal proteins increase blood cholesterol levels, while plant proteins, especially soy, decrease them. Meats contain high levels of the amino acid L-lysine, which increases insulin production, prompting the liver to release fat and cholesterol into the bloodstream. If L-lysine is experimentally added to animal diets, blood cholesterol levels increase by over fifty percent and the animals get plump. Studies show that substituting 30 grams of soy protein daily for a meat meal dramatically reduces cholesterol levels. So, the Japanese may have lower cholesterol levels than Americans, not only because they eat less meat, but also because they eat more soy. The quality of meat protein ranks below that of egg white, fish, and dairy products.

You’re an animal. I’m a human being. There’s a difference. One has a guilty conscience, a sense of guilt, shame and self-awareness as well as the ability to reason and make an arguement driven by evidence and rationality, whereas the other doesn’t. I’m sure you’ll be able to figure this riddle out.

Baron of Beef compared to Prime Rib???

We are planning an awards banquet and went out for price quotes for the catering. One client proposed serving Baron of Beef instead of Prime Rib to save money. I’m not sure that I have ever had this cut, but they told us it compares to Prime Rib. Does anyone have any experience with this cut versus Prime Rib? Would it be a mistake to "downgrade" to baron of beef to save money?

BARON OF BEEF: A descriptive name of bone-in beef round items from IMPS/NAMP 160 to 166B that are generally of large size and used for roasting. Also referred to as Steamship Round.

“PRIME” RIB: Generic description that refers to a bone-in or boneless beef rib roast. As a generic description, it does not refer to the quality grade of the roast.

Is buying meat, poultry, pork or produce from Wal-Mart a risky proposition?

After all, they force down prices and w/ that goes quality too. Would you trust food bought from there? Like most things, you get what you pay for.

You definitely do get what you pay for with walmart. I know for a fact that their roasts are filled with water and preservatives. Plus, do you really want to feed the beast? They have terrible customer service, they sell over-priced crap, they treat their employees like crap, they treat the LIVE animals they sell there like crap, and they sued a brain damaged woman causing her husband to have to divorce her just so she could get more money from medicade to pay for her medical care. Do you really want to support them?

Organic Virgin Coconut Oil – Packaging

http://www.coconut-oil-uk.com: Virgin coconut oil is made from fresh coconut meat, NOT copra (used for many coconut oils) and the resulting product should have a distinct taste and fragrance.

Majority of commercial coconut oils are RBD (refined, bleached, and deodorized) and contain traces of chemicals used in processing. Oils made from copra (coconut meat left out in the sun to dry where it becomes infested with mould, bacteria and insects) have to be refined, bleached and deodorised to make them fit for human consumption.

These oils are cheap, waxy and have no fragrance or flavour. These may or may not be hydrogenated oils.

There are also many virgin coconut oil products on the market today that have a waxy texture, unpleasant fragrance and taste. These are not RBD and are therefore more expensive.

Coconut oil from http://www.coconut-oil-uk.com has been called the “Rolls Royce” of coconut oils. It is certified organic through the growing, harvesting, production, repackaging and labelling of the oil.

Using superior quality virgin coconut oil makes a difference in terms of health, safety, taste, cooking quality and other tangible results.

http://www.coconut-oil-uk.com oil is ultra smooth and creamy (not waxy) with a pleasant fragrance. It does not contain any trans fatty acids, chemicals or GMO ingredients and is suitable for vegans. The containers have tamper proof seals which help to preserve freshness and flavour right to your door. The oil will stay fresh and sweet smelling for 2 to 3 years (unrefrigerated) because of its natural antioxidant properties.

Can I feed my dog raw meat in Vietnam?

I was just wondering if it’s ok to feed my dog raw meat in Vietnam. I’m a bit nervous about the meat quality and though it’s fine cooked I wasn’t sure if he could get something from the meat. Should I just give him a cooked diet instead? Thanks!
Just to clarify some things.. the meat is for human consumption and is bought in a normal supermarket. I’m just weary of foreign meat. Maybe I’m being a bit paranoid?

You can, but just make sure that the meat you are purchasing is fit for human consumption. Purchase from traditional supermarkets (not the outdoor wet markets) and purchase ONLY very good quality meats.

Good luck!
