It appears that their is some opposition developing to the latest Mandatory <acronym title="Country of Origin Labeling">COOL</acronym> passed by the Congress. It seems that <a href="http://www.cattlenetwork.com/content.asp?contentid=150476">Canadians</a> are upset that cattle born and raised in Canada but slaughtered in the US aren't considered US Beef.<br />n<br />n<blockquote>The only way to avoid the discrimination against Canadian animals is for the labelling law to acknowledge that the act of processing live animals into meat is a substantial transformation and that the meat is the origin of the country where that transformation occurred. CLiP <acronym title="Country of Origin Labeling">COOL</acronym> believes that the NAFTA and the WTO require the United States to treat meat from animals processed in the United States as U.S. meat.</blockquote><br />n<br />nMaybe if this upsets them that much the US should just annex Canada to become part of the US. It would solve this problem. <img src="http://www.sarpysam.com/templates/default/img/emoticons/smile.png" alt=":-)" class="emoticon" /> In a way what is funny about this is that the whole <acronym title="Country of Origin Labeling">COOL</acronym> law is because US producers were upset that Canadian beef was considered to be US beef because it got a <acronym title="United States Department of Agriculture, Bought and Paid for by The Big Meat Packers">USDA</acronym> inspection at packing plants and now Canadian Producers are going to fight this American law to keep it that way.<br />n<br />n<strong>No human being will ever know the Truth, for even if they happen to say it by chance, they would not even known they had done so.
