    She continue to make outrageously stupid statements while she crashes in the polls.  Does she not see the connection?

      What di she say that was so "stupid"? This:

      "We want to have safety," she said. "But we also want to have common sense."

      That doesn't sound stupid to me. Do you libs think its even possible to have too much regulation?

      I wonder what's more stupid, what Bachmann said or the liberal idea that there can never be enough gov't regulation? I'd say it's the latter.

        Yes, there's such a thing as too much regulation. However, this isn't a case of too much regulation, which is why what she said is stupid. The problem stems from government regulations being ineffective more than anything else.

          If the regulation is ineffective that doesn't mean there isn't too much or that more would make it effective. Obviously a meat packer that slaughters 15 head a week shouldn't have the same constraints as a factory processing 15000 head a week.

            Correct and I'm not calling for MORE regulation. I'm talking about the ineffectiveness of the regulations are in place, which is the problem. So, quit assuming my position. You want to know something, then ask a direct question and don't assume that anyone who disagrees with you is a liberal. It's clouding your views.

            I want government to properly enforce the regulations already in place without having any need to create more. That means, get rid of the corrupt regulators and other a$$hole not properly doing their job.
            Explain? Any meat packer that slaughters anything should have regulations to follow, to ensure safety. If you don't think so, then you've a dangerous view to the rest of society.

    But then again all she has to do is have that litte R at the end and she would receive no less that stellar treatment from the lefties. What is it they say about lefties , "they can't do anything right ".Ha ...

      Ron Paul doesn't play politics - he's got a 30+ year track record of not compromising.

    I love the way that "a desire to deregulate" was juxtaposed with "e. coli" and now we all associate E. Coli with deregulation.

    "udderly" brilliant.

    PS: The "horrendous" outbreak happening in Germany only got about 2,000 people sick, resulting in serious problems in about 400 people, and death in 23.  ... how much will the new regulations cost people?

    In the US: "FoodNet last year detected 8,256 cases of salmonella poisoning, with 2,290 hospitalizations and 29 deaths."

    http://www.nytimes.com/2011/06/08/us/08food.html

    Let's see... 8,000 cases divided into 300 million ... And E. Coli can be killed by simply cooking your food....

    Yeah, how much is this going to cost us?

      That isn't true.  E-coli and many other bacteria can form spores (hardened shells) that makes them extremely heat-resistant.

      The tips in the e-how article are good steps, but far from foolproof. 

      It's yet another example of Bachmann being a slave to ideology at the expense of science.

        Government need not handle it.
