Well except for the turkey and that 'pumpkin roll cake', whatever that is I get everything else at Walmart for around $7 or $8...2 Bismuth 12 guage with number 2 shot shells (for two wild turkeys total weight of 30 to 35 lbs) for 70 cents...4 gallons of peanut oil for the deep fryer is just shy of $50...A couple of cases of O'Fallon Smoked Porter for about $75...Yeah, Thanksgiving can be had for under $150.00...
Hey, who was on CNBC's Power Lunch about this specific issue? They should have given you a smarter person with the opposing view though. He apparently believes Wal Mart's low prices are responsible for "wage stagnation" in the US.But I guess since Hilary has gone quiet on the issue, along with going quiet on bashing Chinese products, the only folks still bashing are people you've never seen before.
I wonder how many grams of trans fats are in the stuffing, rolls and cake? Oh, yea, probably "none" if it is less than .5 grams per serving. Congrats to the mega food industry for negotiating that little loop hole in nutritional labeling. Sure you can get Thanksgiving dinner for $20, but the long term health cost of it can add up for years- ditto for all the other cheap processed crap everyone is eating!
"Congrats to the mega food industry for negotiating that little loop hole in nutritional labeling"...O.K., no one's forcing you to eat...
So - let's get this straight - because factory farming makes cheap meat by abusing cheap labor, controlling bacteria and growth with the use of unnatural chemicals and toxins, and caring not at all about being a leading cause of soil and water pollution - we should be grateful? I have nothing against eating meat, but arguing on behalf of factory farming is like a man who was just robbed telling the cops "but at least the criminal was dressed nicely". It's all fake - and you can eat great delicious affordable American food without being part of the destruction of America through constant participation in the factory farming system.www.ThreeDollarDinner.com
What do you know about factory farming? Read this:http://www.american.com/archive/2009/july/the-omnivore2019s-delusion-against-the-agri-intellectualsThe stupidity of city fold never ceases to amaze.
By calling someone stupid you negate any credibility of your argument. If you feel like factory farmed meat is good for you and the planet then by all means keep eating it. Lots of folks are discovering that it is pretty nasty stuff by their standards, both in and out of big cities.
