    For the first time, makers of dietary supplements, including vitamins and herbal pills, will be required to test their products, the Food and Drug Administration said Friday.

    See, what we got here is a teach lessening�we are in training. We are in an extraordinary training plan...the magnitude is breath-taking. This is a extremely sophisticated group of people�only a handful of people has the capabilities, knowledge and skills to carry this out in the USA.

    We are openly manhandling a little fish�indeed an industry�22 billion is peanuts�we are slapping them around for extremely good reasons�to train the big fish�to openly demonstrate our capabilities.

    See, are we sending the signal that we can move the regulator...or make the regulator fearful of us..to demonstrate that too the big fish.

    Anyone want to play chicken?

    Thanks,

    • I think they should check these items, but our government isn't a very reliable checker of much anything.

      • I am just saying; the �I hate the government crowd� on both the left and right�our collective lost in faith in government�is the highest national security crisis�much bigger than terrorism or Iraq. The government arbitrates most of our problems in society�.try to get critical high voltage power line built in the USA�.our infrastructure across the board is in worst conditions than fighing the war in Iraq�check out our pathetic condition of our roads, bridges and interstate�.the enormous amount of wasted and frozen in time we sit in traffic. We spend much more time in work and much more time in traffic congestion�.and no time for the kids and family. I used to joke when I live in Atlanta�.Sugar Hill, Ga�one accident anywhere on the LOOP or any of the interstates�and then we�d be all late for work�.the whole region would be late for work through one accident.

      • Yep, they starve the beast, then feed the pigs, and the results is they kill our babies�then we depend on the democrats to rescue all of us�whose campaign contributions that they desperately need comes from the same people who fund's the republicans.

        We really need a new progressive era disconnected from any of these guys! We got to invent something new for the USA!

    • I am told UNFI Vegetable and produce sucks�I�ve seen that. So the produce would go through Albert�s Warehouse system�then cycle through UNFI Warehouse�nobody would own the vegetables. At the end of the day�.aging produce would get distributed to the customer. More than from a single warehouse�it was real inefficient. So Albert�s was it own profit center within a UNFI Warehouse�.a separate business and separate employees. Alberts did run their own truck routes�with the more distant and separated customer using UNFI transportation resources. Albert�s had new tractors while UNFI had model T�s?
