Re: Case for country of origin labeling in nutshell.

An update to the story. China and EU are halting meat imports from Brazil, so far I haven`t seen any movement in live cattle or lean hogs.  If they have to take that meat to the dump and a ban on their exports, perhaps the US could pick up that slack?  No yet anyway.

 

Paul Harvey`s quote was a foreshadowing of the globalism we see today...it`s not good, not working, but that doesn`t stop them from strapping a engine on a brick and pretending that it can fly like an airplane.
