Headlines I Wish I Hadn’t Seen

Does the IRS have an “enemies list”?

The new, aggressive pathogens in China and Saudi Arabia may or may not carve a deadly path to the West; but sooner or later, you can be sure, one will.

41% of small businesses are postponing hiring because of ObamaCare law; only 9% think the law will be good for them.

The UN wants us to eat more insects.

    Bugs are inexpensive and high in protein.

    Uhhhh, no thanks. You can keep the crickets – I’ll take the bacon.

    @ 41% of small business holding back hiring

    I know this is bad news, and I have a feeling this will continue for some time being since Obama care has so much complex regulations on it.

    @ UN wants us to eat more insects

    You do know that eating insects is something they do in certain regions in the East. They seem to be okay with it. They are apparently meant to be a good source of protein.

    @ Deadly strains in China & Saudi Arabia

    That is a scary article, after reading it, I kept remembering all the host of movies that have been out on similar scenarios, in most of them, we tend to turn into zombies. Man, this scares me!

    On global pathogens:
    “Most people on earth nowadays live within 24 hours’ travel time of Saudi Arabia. And in October, when millions of people journey to Mecca for the hajj, the Muslim pilgrimage, the lines of connections among humans everywhere will be that much shorter.”

    Interesting time to be studying public health. I wonder when the real life Walking Dead will start?

    @ Deadly strains in China & Saudi Arabia

    After reading this, I am happy to be a big fan of Walking Dead. It provides me with some useful tips in how to survive against zombies and birdflu people.

    @ IRS having an Enemy’s List

    I wont be surprised by this, surely this could be a great way to get revenge on anyone who you don’t like.

    This could potentially help solve some hunger issues in certain countries but it needn’t be a replacement of a balanced diet. Insects are mainly rich in protein, not other nutrients.

    Just as the economy has signs of recovery, certain policies are preventing it from truly recovering. If this served a greater cause, then great, but there is little evidence of this thus far.

    I agree Americans should consume more insect protein. But I have an alternative idea! Why don’t we farm-raise grasshoppers, dry them into a powder, mix with corn and feed them to the cows! Dried grasshopper protein would help livestock fatten up faster so humans could eat them! Maybe a better solution would be to grow grasshoppers and feed them to chickens. But chickens don’t taste as good as cows do.

    My chicken cordon bleu disagrees with you Buster.

    IRS enemies list- not a big surprise to hear that and bet a hard look into it will reveal current and past puppet masters of the IRS audits.
