The Koch Brother’s Karma

For the past few days, chicken and what evil may be lurking in it, has been on the news here quite a bit.

Can you guess who owns the producers of these chicken products that are being recalled?

That would be the Koch Brothers, et al.

Food safety should be everyone’s top priority in this and every Country and selling and/or eating contaminated food is just crazy, when the whole world is totally wired and connected right now.

This was not the Koch Brother’s first brush with either bad food, or trouble at their Plants, as they have had issues several times in the past few years, links to these stories are below.

One of the stories that came up while looking for more about this chicken recall, was not about a recall at all, but about a raid on one of the Koch Plants.

It seems that a few years ago, an Ohio plant was raided and 160 illegal immigrants were taken into custody by ICE or the Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

This same Plant had been under surveillance for two years by their agents before the raid.

I am not quite sure, but don’t the Koch Brother’s belong to and give quite generous financial support to a political party that is highly opposed to any/all illegal immigrants in this country?

Oops~

But for now, if you have any of the above mentioned products in your freezer, please protect yourself and your family, dispose of them properly, or follow the directions at the USDA website.

Also listed below is a link to the USDA for Recalls, it would be good for you to check it as often as possible.

I have always been a great believer in Karma, but in the case of the Koch Brothers, I fear that they may outlive us all and never meet theirs.

Tawdry Trump

After watching a film not long ago  called  You’ve been Trumped  about Trump’s vicious and vile treatment of both a people and a place, as he forced a new Golf Course onto a small town in Scotland and the eventual sad outcome, seeing this glaring headline this morning in my mail, made me smile.

Everyone must eventually meet their Karma Donald and yours is about to be served up on a plate so big, that it may make even you choke!

This man, whom I consider the very persona of evil in America, is also the purist definition of a Bully.

And, he has been this way all of his life.

Trump has in the past, gotten his way, by brute force, or any number of other despicable means, nearly 100 % of the time.

But with this latest business failure, and even more  huge job losses, the Trump name may no longer be one many, or hopefully any, want to be associated with in a financial venture.

What Trump and too many Casinos did to Atlantic City is sad.

The once beautiful Boardwalk is now left trying to deal with repeated failing Casinos and hoping to find a way to clean up its now somewhat tarnished image.

Will those casinos still remaining avoid the same fate of those closing and closed, only time will tell if Atlantic City will become a Ghost Town?

The Governor is adamant that all will be fine:

Talks focus on fixing Atlantic City, with a Vegas assist

As you may gather, I have a very low opinion of Casinos and what they do to an area and the people who live there.

My complete  opposition to them, is perfectly matched by Walkingfox,  who watched them destroy both his Mohegan people and their culture in Connecticut with the two biggest Casinos in America.

What bothers most about Trump,  is that in spite of the huge wakes of destruction he usually leaves behind in his failed business deals, somehow, he always seems to land on his feet and come out without a scratch.

He is always able to walk away, to start over again with a new idea and a new group of sucker investors who like Trump, are driven by pure greed and have left their morals back home with their grandmothers.

Now, as always, Trump smiles his artificial smile, and talks his way out of every mess that he gets into and the innocent dupes close to him in any form of business transaction,  are left to deal with what he has done.

But hopefully one day, when Trump’s Karma comes to call, all the world will see this disgusting man for what he truly is:
Tawdry Trump.
