Should We Ingest Foods Imported From Other Countries
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

I was watching a very good movie the other day, wherein the wife had tired of being married to her partner. She thought about just leaving, but she realized she had invested too much in the relationship. She thought of the reactions of her children and grand children if she just walked away. As she thought of ways to end this honorably (how about that, kill someone honorably), she thought of a movie she had seen sometime ago, wherein a wife had assisted in the expiration of her husband. She decided to try that method.

She decided to employ the old putting of poison in your food trick. Every day, she would administer a small dosage of her selected ingredient into his noon meal. She would just watch in disgust as he stuffed himself and talked about how good the food was. Where did it all go wrong? The children were convinced their parents were the ideal couple, and wanted to emulate them in their marriages.

This country has ties with other countries and some of them seem to hate everything we stand for. Yet, if you visit most any food market in this country, you will find some imported foods on the shelves. I am still trying to figure that one out. Many, many years ago while in junior high school, I vividly recall hiding under my school desk in a contorted position. We would have these drills because we had to be prepared when the evil communist decided to come and get us.

Fast forward a few years and discover we are doing all kinds of business with the communist and anyone else, where we think a buck can be made. Matter of fact, it seems that China owns everything in this country. I hope they don't call the debt in. Are we losing sight of the fact that many countries really hate us?

As this article is being written, some wealthy folks are plotting to send jobs overseas. They must know something the rest of us are unaware of. Not only that, some will stash their money in overseas accounts. They forget that this is the same country that allowed them to become wealthy. Should high-ranking government officials be allowed to hid money in overseas accounts? Just a question?

It seems to me that we have put ourselves in a position wherein we can be destroyed without a single shot being fired by our enemies. Even though we may trust some countries to import foods and other goods to our shores, it would not take much effort for a rogue country to compromise the food supply of the country we trust.

In this country, we have many politicians talking about reducing the size of government. This country is already short of inspectors to look out for, and ensure our food supply is safe.

My mother once told me that, if you fail to look out for your own interest, others will look out for it and take everything you own. So please be very attentive when purchasing imported foods. I do not have a clue as to what or how we should protect ourselves, just be watchful. No, hiding under a desk will not work.
