FDA is not in the business of approving foods for human consumption. There is no such thing as an application for new food approval, as there is for drugs. The FDA just disapproves (i.e. seizes or fines or jails the manufacturer) when they find foods that are misbranded, adulterated, or contain unapproved food additives.
Ask one of these corporate stiffs to show you some data underlying their claims, and they run to the nearest corporate attorney they can find to support a claim that sacred corporate secrets would be revealed if a complete list of products is revealed to the public.
Worst preznut in history - Bush or Morsi?
At least Morsi had the brains not to invade Israel!
Why do right wingers' posts all read as if they are written by a semi-literate #$%$ who dropped out of school in the 6th grade?
Christie makes the Port Authority his personal political playground (over 50 political appointments) and expects to be taken seriously as a presidential candidate?
Over the years, the NY-NJ Port Authority has often served as a political candy jar, providing patronage jobs for political allies. NJ Gov. Chris Christie has been particularly skillful at doling out well-paid jobs at the authority to his supporters. By most counts, there are at least 50 agency employees who owe their jobs to the New Jersey governor.
Not a very hopeful biography for the 2nd richest American woman, and perhaps 14th richest person in all the world. Wikipedia says:
Walton has been involved in at least three automobile accidents. During a 1983 Thanksgiving family reunion near Acapulco, Mexico, Walton lost control of a rented Jeep and plunged into a ravine, shattering her leg. She was airlifted out of Mexico and would undergo more than two dozen surgeries and is said to suffer lingering pain from her injuries. In an April 1989 incident, she struck and killed 50-year-old Oleta Hardin, who had stepped into a road. No charges were filed. In a 1998 incident, she is reported to have hit a gas meter while driving under the influence. She paid a $925 fine and served no jail time.
On October 7, 2011, her 62nd birthday, she was again arrested for driving while intoxicated in Weatherford, Texas, after a dinner with friends in Fort Worth. Walton's attorney released a statement acknowledging the incident and expressing regret. The charges were dropped by Texas prosecutors in September 2013 without formal charges being filed.
At age 24, Walton was first married in 1974 to a prominent Louisiana investment banker, but the two were divorced two and a half years later. Shortly there after she married a contractor who built her swimming pool, but they too quickly divorced.
Depends upon how much your heirs need - to assure a prosperous retirement for your widow and heirs, work to 70, contribute max to your 401(k). At age 70, your SS payments will be 20% higher than at age 65. If Hillary is elected with a Dem Congress, stock market will be saved from R royalist-fascists.
Wish I had a $31 per hr job now, in my 60's.
According to a United Nations report, North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is spending lavishly on a private movie theater for 1,000 of his closest friends -- surpassing even the legendary ways of his father.
Next we'll see him spending money on car elevators, dancing horses, and Cayman tax shelters.
And when the Smirking Chimp stood on an aircraft carrier deck bearing the message "Mission Accomplished" so many gullible morons actually believed the chimp?
