    Too early to start a 2018-19 Basketball thread?

    Too bad Fisher was out, they needed him down the stretch. They played tough though. Hard to win on the road and they almost did it. Take care of bidness at home ans they'll be fine. Should win the next 4...

    What happens if I don't pay taxes? They want to arrest me. What happens when they arrest me? They point a gun at me. Taxation in theft at the point of a gun. Socialism for the win!

    I objected to more the 7th grade view of economic history...especially the Robber Barrons who used government money to build their empires.

    Welcome to the world of economic trade-offs. Except the point that the FDA doesn't have to be a governmental agency still remains.

    Any company can serve to certify production. The incentive is for manufacturers to achieve the certification in order to convince customers to buy their product. The Non-GMO Project is a good example of a non-governmental entity supplying certification for the public. Or what about Underwriters Laboratories? Again, since I am back in food manufacturing. We have no incentive to kill our customers. As far as the E.coli, the FDA did not prevent it...

    Not really. Imagine if our school system was run by Walmart and everyday students learned about the past and present CEOs of Walmart. They would learn how great they were and all of the products they sold to the masses. I think we can all agree that is weird. But we go to a government run school and learn about all out great government leaders and not once do we pause to think that maybe we are being brainwashed. It's not against human nature to think critically, we just have been fed crap for so many years we are desensitized.

    I'm of the opinion, and maybe I'm wrong, that it is bad business to kill your customers with bad product. Also, it is clear that the FDA did not prevent this e-coli breakout, but I bet that distributors and retailers are finding new vendors to source their product. We just had the FDA in on a surprise inspection, not sure what they did. Checked some paperwork or something. We recently had a recall from one of our suppliers. We had to recall a ton of our product. Guess who we are not using as a supplier anymore?
