McDonalds Takes A Risk!

Blogroll Me!

Perhaps this is just another way for the powers that be (CIA and Big Banks) to get Heroin and Cocain into the US now that human traffic is being slowed down...just saying!

I got this email this morning.

I'm sure those of you who aren't in the cattle
business don't understand the
issues here. But to those of us
whose living depends on the
cattle market,
selling cattle, raising the best beef possible...
This is frustrating.

This will keep us from ever stopping there again, even for
a drink.

The original message is from the Texas Cattle Feeders
Association American
cattle producers are very passionate about this.

McDonald's claims that there is not enough beef in the
USA to support their
restaurants. Well, we know that is not so. Our opinion is
they are looking
to save money at our expense. The sad thing of it is that
the people of the
USA are the one s who made McDonald's successful in the
first place, but we
are not good enough to provide beef.

We personally are no longer eating at McDonald's, which
I am sure does not
make an impact, but if we pass this around maybe
there will
be an impact

Please pass it on. Just to add a note:

All Americans that sell cows at a livestock auction barn
had to sign a paper
stating that we do NOT EVER feed our cows any part of
another cow. South
Americans are not required to do this as of yet.

McDonald's has announced that they are going to start
importing much of
their beef from South America . The problem is that South
Americans aren't
under the same regulations as American beef producers, and
the regulations
they have are loosely controlled.

They can spray numerous pesticides o n their pastures that
have been banned
here at home because of residues found in the beef. They
can also use
various hormones and growth regulators that we can't.
The American public
needs to be
aware of this problem and that they may be in

American ranchers raise the highest quality beef in the
world and this is
what Americans deserve to eat.. Not beef from countries
where quality is
loosely controlled. Therefore, I am proposing a boycott of
McDonald's until
they see the light.

I'm sorry but everything is not always about the bottom
line, and when 0Ait
comes to jeopardizing my family's health, that is where
I draw the line.

I am sending this note to about thirty people. If each of
you send it to at
least ten more (30 x 10 = 300) .... and those 300 send it
to at l east ten
more (300 x 10 = 3,000) ... and so on, by the time the
message reaches the
sixth generation of people, we will have reached over THREE

I'll bet you didn't think you and I had that much
potential, did you? Acting
together we can makea difference.. If this makes sense to
you, please pass
this message on.
