No one is jamming anything down their throats.
Somehow I doubt that if the Democrats in prison (given a higher incidence of Democrat criminality, I use them in this example) were to claim they should be served no-fat lattes, it would be laughed at. At what point does a political ideology of a prisoner dictate how we feed him or her? From the Ivory Tower:
"A federal lawsuit was filed today against the Michigan Department of Corrections, alleging several Muslim inmates aren't getting enough "nutritional" food during the month-long fast of Ramadan and are being forced to eat foods that violate their religious beliefs."They can eat the swill the others are eating. They ARE criminals, right?
Consider it a part of their debt to society. The Michigan department of corrections should not cave under any circumstance to this type of suit that is meant to undermine the operations of our prisons. Rewarding this group CAIR and the dangerous ideology they represent by acceding to their demands, is unnecessary, and dangerous policy capitulation.

Put That Bottle Of Malt Liquor Down, cause the bank is still closed.
Apparently bridge card holders with accounts ending in a "0" have been 'inconvenienced'. The money didn't appear as it was supposed to:
"It has come to the attention of the Michigan Department of Technology, Management and Budget (DTMB) that as of 8 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 3, the Bridge Cards providing food assistance for clients with account numbers ending in "0" were not filled as expected.Oh heck no! Its a three day weekend, (including the championship game day) and by golly not having the goods to sit in front of the 55" big screen TV is not acceptable AT ALL. NOT. AT. ALL.
DTMB regrets that this problem has occurred and will be working to ensure that safeguards are put in place to prevent a similar error in the future.See that it doesn't happen again .... fools!

How incredible that on the eve of thanksgiving, with its promise of high caloric abundance, that our federal masters would be talking about limiting the way in which we feed ourselves.
And our senatorial tyrants Carl Levin, and Debbie Stabenow are a part of this plan.
S.510 which failed to get traction BEFORE the election is back on the table, and is expected to gain enough support for a vote on Monday. The bill dubbed the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act is touted by its promoters as a way to promise standard rules for consistency in food production and a means in which government can ensure compliance with those measures.
Like other grand government efforts it has promise of some dire consequence as well. Mostly for small farms, farmers market participants, local growers, and anyone who cannot afford a team of lawyers ready and able to challenge the best intentions of our benevolent and all protecting federal tyranny.
Whats the problem with food safety being advanced?
