The USDA Food Safety Joke On Us

The United States Department of Agriculture knew a dangerous form of salmonella was present at a Cargill, Inc. turkey plant but did not inform the company until after one person died and 77 others were sickened by the bacteria. Cargill and the USDA announced the recall of ground turkey from the Cargill plant in Springdale, Ark., on Aug. 3. It was the third-largest meat recall in history and involved 36 million pounds of ground turkey.

The MSM And Downgrade Absurdity

The meme of the week, that the Standard & Poor’s downgrade of the United States’ sovereign credit rating was caused by the Tea Party, is absurd. First, S&P and its rating system are irrelevant. This is the same ratings agency that gave A ratings to Lehman Brothers and other teetering banks right before they crashed and burned in 2008.

The 1st Amendment And Truck Decorations

A woman in South Carolina is facing a jury trial for choosing to decorate her truck with an object that the local police chief believes is obscene. I feel that obscenity laws are like the Federal government’s own proverbial gateway drugs: First it makes obscenity laws, then there is systemic censorship, then the Constitution is being rewritten to leave out the 1st Amendment altogether.

Migraines, ‘Magic Shots’ And Lies Perpetrated By Conventional Medicine

I have a friend who suffers from migraines (not Rep. Michele Bachmann, though I’m sure she’s a delightful person). For years, she sought answers from Conventional Medicine, until she got some unusual advice in an emergency room.

Walnuts belong in your medicine cabinet

If you have a bag of walnuts sitting in your food pantry, you need to move them quickly. They belong in your medicine cabinet. At least that’s the view of the Food and Drug Administration, which last year sent a warning letter to Diamond Foods, Inc., because the packaging “misbranded” the product, causing them to be drugs.

Technical Difficulties

Some of you have noticed that lately Personal Liberty Digest™ has been difficult to access and slow to respond. Posted comments are taking longer than normal to appear, and sometimes error messages are popping up. We’re aware of the problem, and our technical team is hard at work to solve it.

DHS And Its War On ‘White Terror’

The War on Terror, at least as a name, is over, but the war on white Americans by the Department of Homeland Security is in full stride. The DHS has targeted Tea Party members, Ron Paul supporters, military veterans and gun owners as potential terrorists and encouraged Americans to spy on each other.

The FDA’s War on Dietary Supplements

The United States Food and Drug Administration is trying to implement new guidelines that will effectively kill the nation’s supplement industry. The guidelines were reviewed by the Alliance for Natural Health, and the alliance determined them to be onerous and punitive.

The UPSA

How long before every aspect of government has its own police force? Apparently, we are nearly there, as an 83-year-old New York woman found out on June 25. On that day, Darbe Pitofsky threw a brown bag filled with old papers in a city litter basket — a crime for which a city sanitation worker wrote a summons.

Obama’s 2nd Amendment Assault

Senator Charles Grassley continues to peel back the layers of the U.S. inJustice Department’s conspiracy to send arms to Mexican drug dealers and use those gun sales as a pretext to impose stricter gun laws on the American people. Grassley has told news agencies that high-ranking Justice Department officials were briefed on Operation Fast and Furious and Operation Gunrunner as early as October 2009.
