    I want the names of all the parties involved in this nightmare. To withhold them is criminal.

    FINALLY - unfortunately, the’ve ALL had plenty of time to meet with their lawyers, practice their script, and spin the “tail” to their benefit. Just like the Chinese finally letting in the inspectors. It’s a huge sham to give all these rogue players time to get their stories framed to minimize damage. I’m sure the Chinese government had workers clean those plants up 24/7 for weeks. As for Menu Foods and Chem Nutra - I’m sure those guys had a few practice sessions with their lawyers and PR people and worked out the correct “timeline” together. It’s ridiculous….

    Yesterday I received this from Dr. Ted Butchart, naturopath:
    You were inquiring about Lycopodium for dogs damaged by the bad pet food.

    What we are talking about is homeopathic medicine. The specific remedy that has been used successfully with these dogs is called “Lycopodium”. It would be available anywhere homeopathic medicines are sold. Whole Foods, most health food stores, and of course from any doctor who uses homeopathics. Ask for a potency of “30 C” and give one pellet of that to the dog. Just put into the mouth. If no response or improvement you can repeat in 3 hours, up to 4 times.

    Normally we do not use homeopathic remedies unless we can observe the patient and determine which exact remedy fits the case. In the case of these many animals it is probably not possible to get them all to a competent homeopath, so using this remedy is the best we can do. If you have access to a qualified vet homeopath by all means seek them out.

    And it wasn’t too long ago we were told that waste of meat-producing animals was being fed back into the meat chain..which I doubt would be fit for human consumption but it was done anyway. It was part of the feeding program of beef cattle etc. No wonder people and pets are having so much cancer, deadly tumors, blood diseases, all sorts of suffering ailments when HUMANS and PETS are used a trash cans. What a crazy world. It’s all about money.

    That’s right Tess! It’s time to roll back to small business sector as a way to punish these big boys with their big dreams while they hammer down to us–crap.

    It’s all a lie anyway: total output more than equals (three vertical dashes) total income, so where is the profit being pulled from? It is from the public in quality and from the pay to the employee. There is no such thing as profit in an ecnomist’s eyes, but how many will declare that on Capitol Hill?
