The USDA has ended a ban on Chinese chicken imports, giving four Chinese poultry processors the go-ahead to start shipping processed chicken to the U.S. Although the chickens will be killed in America, no USDA inspectors will be at the processing plants in China. As the meat shipped here will be processed, there's no requirement for point-of-origin labeling, so consumers won't be able to ascertain where those precious chicken nuggets hail from. Bloomberg correspondent Adam Minter, for one, believes the USDA decision is a bad one, considering China's rotten track record with food safety and last year's bird flu outbreak. Anyone for tofu?

Shipping chickens while the population at large gets by with rice every meal. You know, they ain't short and thin for no reason.

Explain to me how they gonna feed them on the boat for ten days. Please don't say they will fly them. Where they gonna dump the refuse and dead birds? Oh. They are gonna kill and butcher them in China and ship the carcass frozen but not cut up? Where is that thread on Botulisim? Why don't we just ask the USA chicken growers to triple output? Tell China to feed their own people. Maybe they won't feel the need to stand in front of tanks with a plastic bag for ammo.

Our freaking government is so full of idiots they make the Memphis school system look like Nuclear Engineers.
