    Of course, your post does nothing to address the inaccuracy of labeling--as meat--food products that are mostly not-meat, and corporate complicity in that scenario, aided by conservatives who believe that corporations can do nothing wrong.

    I hope these assholes end up paying a major settlement.
    I'm sorry, maybe I didn't make myself clear enough earlier on. Show me these "conservatives who believe that corporations can do nothing wrong". I'm a conservative and I've never in all my life met another conservative who felt this way that you are describing. You see, what most conservatives believe in is something called personal responsibility. Most conservatives also believe that corporations will be punished by the free market if they are providing a good or service that is dangerous. Is eating Taco Bell once a week dangerous? By itself, no, but eating Taco Bell (or other fast food) 7-10 times a week dangerous? You betcha!
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

Just because something may taste good to you doesn't mean it is good for you. Krispy Kreme's are absolutely delicious, but they aren't the best thing to be eating on any sort of regular basis wouldn't you agree? And no, it's not publicized as to what exactly is in a Krispy Kreme either.
    I think that in today's day and age if there really was meat brought in which was labeled "Grade D: suitable for human consumption" or whatever it's supposed to say; some punk kid working at Taco Bell would have already taken a picture of with with their cell phone and uploaded it to the internet.

    I blame your boys for making the regulation of food safety a toothless bear over the last 20 years.

    "My boys"? You fail to realize that there aren't too many conservatives in the GOP don't you. But alas, the truth comes out. This isn't about what's in Taco Bell's "beef", this is about how evil the GOP is.

    Because I'm totally a hyperpartisan.

    Re: Where's the beef?

    I'm a moderate. There are many social problems for which the blame falls squarely on the Democraps (don't even get me started on teacher unions and welfare).

    On the issue of food safety and corporate deregulation, however, the blame falls squarely on the party of Reagan, Bush I, and Bush II.

    Say what? Taco Bell's "ground beef" filling is only 36% beef? Does knowing this make you think differently about Taco Bell?

    Hardly ever eat there. Once you've eaten at a family-owned Mexican restaurant that serves the real thing, Taco Bell does not appeal anymore.

    My favorite local place has a fajita dish with steak, chicken, shrimp, pork sausage, pinapple, peppers and onions covered in queso cheese sauce.... yum.

    I think you meant Tex-Mex! Because fajitas pineapple and cheese sauce are not Mexican food. Wink.
