EDUCATIONAL WRITINGS-DISCOURSE, PART XV

Educational Writings-Discourse, Part XV: America: Third World Foodstuffs in a First World Nation—Recipe for Disaster, Part VI!” by Moses Scharbug III

 

 

Bakersfield, CA, 12-15-2012 S:  You know, when you read the entire blog, you see the date at the end of the blogpost that tells you the date that we wrote the post, for instance, as, “12-11-2012.” This means that we began the rough draft and then either submitted it for the final editing and went back to wherever we live or finalized it the night before publication.  In this case, since I am the assistant editor here at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, I finished each of my posts and then immediately published it so on the one hand, it seems that I just wrote it seconds ago but have had the chance to edit it, too.  Both of these scenarios are true especially as someone has to be here to mind the store in Oildale, CA, while everyone else is away awaiting the End Times in their own particular places.  While my family and I would like to be somewhere else, Fiji for instance, here I am and here they are, awaiting the end with me here at the corporate offices.  I mean, what the heck, it’s not like I am a young guy with things to do, you know women to meet, booze to drink, I’m an old guy so it doesn’t matter if the end catches me here or in the tropics.   Stinkbug is my partner and friend and for him, I do not mind giving up my place in the cosmos to be here whenever whatever happens, happens.  Besides, I look at things from the bright side of life, something many Jews normally do as when you face the persecutions we have endured over the course of history; life seems to move at a different pace.  Therefore, let us do what I do best: discuss money first!

First of all, for all you Christians out there who celebrate Christmas, if the world DOES NOT end, are you prepared with Christmas gifts or are you a bunch of smucks figuring that you can say, “Hey!  I thought the world was going to end so I didn’t buy you any gifts!”  Do you think your wife, mother, or kids are going to accept that line of crap?  Probably not, I mean, I have been married for what seems like ages and if I told my wife, “You know, Hanukkah may not have come due to the world being destroyed so I didn’t get you a gift,” do you think she would accept that?  No, I would be sleeping over at my Cousin Levi’s house on his sofa bed, as she would tell me to get the “hell out, you no good, dirty rotten cheap-ass bum!” 

My wife, Shimona, is not a kind-hearted woman if I do not bring her jewelry for special occasions and currently through all the years of our marriage; she is loaded down with more gold and silver than a Babylonian scarlet hussy is.  That is what you do when you do when you love a woman, you buy her candy, jewelry, take her on trips, you do what is right and you know the two things I love giving as gifts?  Beverly Carrick paintings and the musical albums we advertise here at the AICP-END!  Have you considered the gift of fine art should the world not come to an end?  I mean, if it does, it is only money so what the heck, spend some money now you Meshugalah, go to the beverlycarrick.com website and BUY a painting, nothing says, “I love you” better than the gift of a fine piece of art.  Look at all of the paintings we have presented since our opening day of Thanksgiving 2010, we have presented one Beverly Carrick painting daily for close to 800 blogs and still, we have her paintings for sale.  You can call the business office at 661-831-2544 and buy a painting and give it to someone you love. 

Her website has so many spectacular paintings available for sale, each of them original oil, all of them painted and signed by her.  Always buy directly from her, as anywhere else, with the exception of Palm Desert Gallery in Palm Springs, CA, is a duplicate piece of crap from China.  You do NOT want to buy a fricking painting from the People’s Republic of China, yes, they do a good job imitating a master artist but it is still counterfeit stuff, nothing beats owning an original Carrick, I am telling you!

Now, if you are a tightwad, buy a CD for a friend, a loved one, or the girl/guy you want to schlep.  There is nothing wrong with spreading a little honey around the rim of the peanut butter jar, it does the trick and giving the gift of a CD by MOUNTAIN, as the one advertised today, “Nantucket Sleighride” says, “I love you.”  MOUNTAIN is one of the great rock-and-roll bands of all time, Leslie West is an amazing musician, the person weights 400 fricking pounds and is up there belting it out and blazing the strings off his guitar.   I saw them in concert back in 1971 and man, I am telling you, the place was wild, the band got it on for more than two hours and when they did “Mississippi Queen” from the album, “Climbing!,” the place practically blew up, it was so fricking loud!  Please, buy a CD, buy a painting, buy something that says, “I love you,” buy some of the albums by Blue Cheer, nothing is more loving than the gift of a damned good CD or a painting! Beverly Carrick is the greatest artist alive in the world today and you will thank me one day for me steering you in the right direction!

Okay, we had better continue on with our essay on foods coming in from the Third World, something NO one in their right mind should want and yet, we see happening here in the richest farmland the world has ever known: California!  Thanks to decades of liberal politicians and moderate Republicans, we have allowed our state assembly and senate to close down the croplands and open it to housing developments.  As long as scumbags like Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown line their pockets with donations from Wetbacks, they give nothing about what happens to the state.  It is tragic but maybe in another six days, it is not going to matter.  Anyhow, let us get on with our essay and see if we can finish it today:

AMERICA—THIRD WORLD FOODSTUFFS IN A FIRST WORLD NATION—A RECIPE FOR DISASTER, PART VI

“In my quest to clean up America’s meat supply, I have met with then-Department of Agriculture Secretary Dan Glickman, testified before congress, and have met with both the then-President and Vice President.  I have also met and discussed food safety with many senators and congressional representatives both in Washington and in Sacramento.  I have attended many meetings and conferences with meat industry officials and food scientists.  I even helped formulate the HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) which is now the law for the meat processing industry.  And lastly, I have served as the national president of the grassroots organization, STOP (Safe Tables our Priority), which is made up primarily of victims and families of foodborne illnesses.” [i]

Mr. Muellar goes on to state “that in February 1997, he traveled to Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa to see their meat irradiation facility.  He believed that he was one of the few people who have actually seen such a facility; (furthermore) he actually tasted irradiated meat and it impressed him.

The USDA states “meat is muscle tissue which is sterile.  It only becomes contaminated when it comes in contact with feces or intestinal fluids when slaughtered.”[ii]  The article by Mr. Muellar goes on to state that it is only the outside of the meat which is contaminated—but when meats are ground into hamburger that once was on the outside is now mixed in with the rest and if contaminated can infect the entire batch.  We as chefs know that we must cook ALL ground meats to a temperature of 165°F for at least 15 seconds.  His article says, “Only 160°F but this is not what we’re taught by the Kern County Department of Health.  It is better to be safe than sorry although I still prefer mine medium-rare at a temperature of 140°F to 145°F. 

First, nothing can replace proper sanitation techniques whether in the field or in the meat processing plant.  There is, however, a new science that could change the entire scene and that technology is irradiation.  Diseases such as hepatitis A is not a pathogen in the processing of meat or fruits and vegetables; rather, they serve as a conduit through which these diseases are transmitted through contact with infected individuals and are then passed on to other healthy people through no fault of their own.

Mr. Muellar mentions the case with the Mexican strawberries used for the school lunch program as well as the Guatemalan raspberries.  He further goes on to burst the bubble of vegetarians the world over because they are at more of a risk than meat eaters are:  

“Eating fruits and vegetables doesn’t make you immune to foodborne illnesses.  Since the beginning of the 1990s, this country has experienced many foodborne outbreaks from sources other than meat: in 1991, cantaloupes, in 1994, ice cream, in 1995, alfalfa sprouts, and in 1998, the country witnessed a food poisoning epidemic in New England traced to ready-to-eat lettuce, eggs, in the South, and apple juice on the West Coast.”

Irradiation does NOT cause foods to become radioactive.  The same science that allows x-rays human beings to x-ray things is the same science behind the irradiation of meats and vegetables.  Once we shut off the electrical source, there is no more radiation.  What irradiation does is to kill all of the pathogens (except chemical ones such as DDT and the like—they come from OUTSIDE the nation!) that exist on the meat, the eggs, the vegetables and the fruits.  Imagine, not having to worry about the risk of salmonella food poisoning caused by raw poultry and eggs—one must still practice proper hygiene but for all accounts, the disease-causing organisms would be destroyed.  Food FREE from potential foodborne illnesses!

Editor’s Note: well, we did not finish it today so we definitely will finish the essay tomorrow and then have a brief discussion about what we have talked about, things that should be very important to everyone, especially those with families.  The worse thing there can ever be is to see one’s kids ill with something they just ate, it is heart wrenching, horrifying, and plain disgusting.  One can only hope their children or their spouse survives the bout, many times, requiring a trip to the hospital.  I remember once watching my kids—made ill by some Matzo Ball Soup my wife’s brother made—and it tore my heart almost out of my chest; it is something NO parent ever wants to see and if they do or have, never see again.  Anyhow, we will conclude the essay tomorrow on Sunday!   

END PART VI

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As always, we have a great time around here and that is why we want all of you to become a part of the organization by submitting articles to us for inspection and full-credit.  It is a great thing if you would do this, as it is a symbiotic relationship: we give you the space to share your recipes and in return, you send us more and more people who will become dedicated followers of the END.  Currently of multi-diversity across the Internet, it is important that we hear the voices of more and more people from all walks of the foodservice profession —join us. We urge our readership to write to us, leave comments, and if there are any of you, who would care to write an article for us, please get in touch via Magnolia Hilltop Brewers, P.O. Box 20669, Bakersfield, CA 93390-0669.  We obviously do not pay anything but give YOU full byline and that, my friends, is worth its weight in gold.  We want as many people who want to write to be able to do so and we believe that by presenting a forum for our fellow chefs, we are doing something for our beloved industry.  We love diversity and hope to add new and different authors to our pantheon of chefs, food and beverage directors, and culinary professionals.  Come on and join us, it will be fun! Expect that when all of us have run through our cycle, we will be introducing some brand-new talent or so Stinky says.

Please remember to avoid doing business with AARC Technology in Bakersfield, CA.  These people do not care about the small customer anymore but instead put all of their attentions onto their corporate customers. It is sad to not remember why one has the success they do or from where it came. Nowadays, we promote the Nerds on Call computer service, these people are phenomenal and we want you to seek service from them!

          That is going to do it for today, perhaps the final Saturday the earth has left in existence?  Well, whatever happens, we will share it together but remember: if you have not bought your gifts for the holidays, buy them today!  Buy some Beverly Carrick artworks, her paintings are the best and the gift says, “I love you.” Nothing is better than a fine painting, painted by a master, forget that crap sold by that dead fool, Thomas Kinkaid, he was a real-life smuck, nothing of his has any value, even his originals that were not painted by the Burmese or the North Koreans!  Take Moses Scharbug’s word for it, if anyone knows art better than I do, I have yet to meet him, her, or it!  See you all tomorrow, my friends, God bless you all!                                                                       

Anyhow, let us close with this impassioned plea—please leave some comments and/or become a follower and why not spend some money and purchase an album by MOUNTAIN and/or buy a cookbook from Amazon.com—we want to make some money here so help us out by buying something!  Allied with them, we are pleased to market their merchandise! See you next time around! Bye!  

Thank you!
