On the wrong track


It makes common sense that Americans have to quit feeding slaughterhouse waste to grass-eating animals. It is foolish to continue a practice that is unnatural, dangerous and we consumers find repugnant. Every country dealing with the mad cow issue has learned that there are two things essential to restore consumer confidence. You have to quit feeding animals to your food animals and you must institute a widespread program of testing. Last December, the cow-that-spoiled-Christmas was reported to the world by the U.S. Government. A Holstein dairy cow in the State of Washington proved what our government professed could never happen here. A mad cow was in the United States.

Does anyone other than me find it amazing that after the outbreak of Mad Cow disease our government tracked down a cow born in Canada three years ago, right to the stall where she was resting? Then, they track her calves to their stalls within days. However, our government is unable to locate 11 million illegal aliens wandering around our countryside. My solution is to give every illegal alien entering this country a cow.

And that is all I have to say (sure).
