Almost 3 years ago it was Chinese Garlic that got me thinking about trade policy and gave me a big case of agita. Now it's the prospect of importing Chinese Chicken that is making my stomach turn!
What are our bureaucrats thinking of?
In the name of free trade we give a potential enemy the means of attacking us biologically ... Sorry ... We have the means internally to satisfy our need for chicken and do not need to take this risk.
This is a failure of our system of narrow-focus administrative agencies that cannot or refuse to comprehend the bigger picture. It's not in their job description.
And Congress, which has the power to do something about this, is either bound by their political ideologies and allegiances or entirely missing in action. No one protects ordinary citizens any more.
