First the Lettuce…Now the TURKEY? CDC Issues New Warning

Maybe I’ll just stick to to the bourbon this year.

Thanksgiving

As we gather today to give thanks for the goodness in our lives, there will no doubt be a joke or two made at the expense of Romaine lettuce.

Earlier this week, the Centers for Disease Control issued a stark and frightening warning, telling Americans to refrain from eating any Romaine lettuce until further notice, and to thoroughly scrub any areas that they believe Romaine lettuce could have come in contact with in the home.  The culprit for the warning was an outbreak of a particularly nasty strain of E. Coli that has proven deadly in recent months.

In fact, yours truly had a tainted salad on Sunday and is just now getting to the point where actual food sounds appealing.  (Great timing, I know).

Now, as Americans gather and prepare the traditional Thanksgiving meal of turkey, stuffing, and all the fixings, the CDC is back to put another forkful of fear on the table.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is emphasizing safety in preparing this year’s Thanksgiving turkey in the wake of a salmonella outbreak this month concerning raw turkey products that sickened 164 people in 35 states.

About 63 people have been hospitalized and one death has been reported in California linked to the salmonella outbreak, according to the CDC.

“The outbreak strain has been identified in samples taken from raw turkey pet food, raw turkey products, and live turkeys,” the CDC reported.

The organization provided some pointers as well:

The CDC advises:

• Safely Thaw Your Turkey

Thaw turkeys in the refrigerator in a container, or in a leak-proof plastic bag in a sink of cold water that is changed every 30 minutes. When thawing a turkey in the microwave, follow the microwave oven manufacturer’s instructions. Never thaw your turkey by leaving it out on the counter. A thawing turkey must defrost at a safe temperature. When the turkey is left out at room temperature for more than two hours, its temperature becomes unsafe. Bacteria can grow rapidly in the “danger zone” between 40 degrees F and 140 degrees F.

• Safely Handle Your Turkey

Raw poultry can contaminate anything it touches with harmful bacteria. Follow the four steps to food safety – cook, clean, chill, and separate – to prevent the spread of bacteria to your food and family.

The CDC also warned that after the feast, bacteria could grow in foods left at room temperature and is the second most common bacterial cause of food poisoning. Leftovers should be stored at 40 degrees Fahrenheit or colder within two hours of serving.

Wokesters Now Say You are a Racist if You Fear Pit Bull Dogs

In today’s episode of “You Stinkin’ Racist,” woke fanatics are now saying you are a racist if you fear the dangerous pit bull dog.

In today’s episode of “You Stinkin’ Racist,” woke fanatics are now saying you are a racist if you fear the dangerous pit bull dog. The leftist activists at the Animal Farm Foundation recently declared that you are a racist if you fear pit bulls because the pit bull is “the black man’s dog” since it is popular with blacks. The non-profit claims that it is “dedicated to securing equal treatment and opportunity for pit bull dogs and their owners,” and aims to fight against “exclusionary dog breed restrictions in the housing insurance industry.” In other words, the group wants to smooth the way for pit bulls and their owners. The group also relies heavily on a “study” by Harvard Law School’s Ann Linder who wrote a paper titled “The Black Man’s Dog: The Social Context of Breed Specific Legislation.” Linder says that the pit bull has been “gang violence by urban youths, as well as the hip-hop music scene.” However, the pit bull has a bad reputation because it is a dangerous animal. Campus Reform pointed out that pit bulls represent about 6.5% of all dogs in the United States, yet the breed was responsible for 66% of total fatal dog attacks between 2005 and 2017. Oh, but it’s all about racism, you see. You don’t fear pit bulls because the breed is powerful and dangerous. No, you fear pit bulls because you are a racist. The left is never happy unless it is re-fashion reality to its fantasy world. Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.

‘NY Times’ Reporter Says Trump Voters are ‘Enemies of the State’ and ‘National Security Threats’

A reporter for the ‘New York Times’ recently said that Republicans should be termed “enemies of the state” and are a “national security threat.”

A leftist reporter for the New York Times recently said out loud what every Democrat and liberal thinks; that Republicans should be termed “enemies of the state” and that theyare a “national security threat.” You know that this is what every liberal says to each other when they are in private, of course. But most know they shouldn’t say it out loud. Still, the Old Gray Lady’s Katie Benner decided to just blurt it out, anyway. While talking about Nancy Pelosi’s fake Jan. 6 show trials, Benner was expounding about how evil conservatives, Republicans, and Trump voters are on her Twitter feed when she “went there”: Notice how she tried to be cagy by not using Trump’s name directly, saying instead she felt the need to start “calling a politician’s supporters enemies of the state.” Since Pelosi’s goal is to tar all Trump voters as “insurrectionists” with her fake tribunal, who else but Trump could Benner have been talking about? And to prove that she was using round-about language to call all Republicans “enemies of the state,” she later deleted her tweets to shove them in the memory hole so people would forget she spilled the liberal beans. But make no mistake. This is how all liberals feel. They don’t view you aa just wrong politically. They view you as out right evil and deserving of no rights.
