Pink Slime is the name of my fictionalized short story and contains real facts with some surprising conclusions. Pink Slime has America in an uproar. It's the derogatory term for ground-up slaughterhouse meat scraps that's ammonia sanitized. Investigative reporter Digger Cavanaugh has his lunch ruined when a TV report shows what's in 70% of ground beef. Feeling betrayed by the USDA, he investigates pink slime and goes up the food chain. Things are not as he thought.
But here's where it gets interesting. As I researched the topic I found the progressives want pink slime to reduce our global warming carbon footprint. The premise one official made was that 'lean finely textured beef' LFTB, reduces the necessary cattle herd by 1.5 million head. We know progressive hate flatulent cattle. Of course, I am making an educated guess that vegans have infiltrated the USDA and White House, and that they secretly want the Pink Slime scare to continue so as to reduce overall meat consumption. But is that really stretching it much? Go to www.pinkslime.us or www.rainforestpress.com.
