Further investigations identified 11 people in four states sickened by the potentially deadly

right after Pink Slime, I dug out the Cuisinart and started grinding our beef. I buy pot roast or similar meat (when on sale). Freeze one for a traditional pot roast and cut the other(s) into stew meat and grind for hamburger.

I have to admit, the beef "sales" are fewer and farther between these days...

Marine Stuns the Crowd with
4th Verse of Star Spangled Banner
Lyrics Most Americans Have Never Heard
Independent Journal Review, by Kyle Becker    Original Article

In this classic video, a Marine with a powerful voice stunned a patriotic crowd in 2010 by singing the stirring fourth verse of The Star Spangled Banner, which many Americans have never heard. A look at Francis Scott Key’s soaring lyrics, first written in 1814 and made our national anthem in 1931, shows it is not just a pleasant ode to our flag that can be sung at sporting events and on the Fourth of July, but is a vision for the United States. Here are the full lyrics: Oh, say can you see by the dawn’s early light~What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming? Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,

A Comparison Of The RNC’s

For Flag Day yesterday, individuals and organizations across America commemorated in various ways. However, almost all of them included some sort of image of the U.S. flag. Take a look at what the RNC tweeted: (Photograph) Pretty cool, right? Now, compare that to the DNC’s Flag Day tweet: (Photograph) Cute kid, but that is NOT the American flag. Rather, it is patriotic-themed fabric. Maybe they just didn’t have time to be bothered with it? With such careless attention to detail, imagine how scary it would be if these guys were entrusted with something big, like cleaning up the V.A. or

As Iraq fighting rages, gas prices climb

A rising tide of violence in Iraq is driving up prices at the pump. The hike in gas costs follows the battlefield successes of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), an al Qaeda breakaway group backed by Sunni fighters and other groups, in northern Iraq. The cost of crude rose Friday afternoon to nearly $107, a 10-month high, amid fears that the mounting insurgency there could lead to major disruptions of oil shipments. Brent crude futures, an international benchmark, climbed 54 cents to $112.96. [CBS News will be covering the latest developments extensively tonight on the "CBS Evening

Former presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Sunday blasted the Obama administration for repeatedly failing to properly assess and respond to foreign threats. In an interview on Meet the Press, Romney said that most of the blame for the crisis in Iraq lies with the Iraqi government. Yet the administration, he claimed, was also at fault because it underestimated the gravity of the situation and didn´t take stronger preemptive measures to head it off. "This administration, from Secretary Clinton to President Obama, has repeatedly underestimated the threats that are faced by America, has repeatedly underestimated our adversaries," he said.

If the questionable legal charges levied against Dinesh D’Souza by Obama’s Justice Department for exceeding campaign finance laws were to quiet his criticism of the President, it is not working. Yet, one gathers from D’Souza that he sees these charges as one more of the shameless ways this President is using the instruments of the state to attack his critics. With a new book, “America: Imagine a World Without Her” and a movie, “America,” coming on July 2, D’Souza is a man with a message and he is on fire. His movie “2016” brought in 8 million viewers.

With just over a month to go until his first birthday, Prince George made a bid for freedom during a day out at the polo with his mother, the Duchess of Cambridge. Dressed in a smart pair of pink dungarees and a neat white polo shirt, the little prince wriggled in his mother´s arms until she put him down, whereupon he attempted to crawl away from her - and into the path of a polo pony - before swiftly being picked up again. Mother and son were at the at the Cirencester Park Polo Club to watch the Duke of

READING, Pa.- In August 2008, factory workers David and Barbara Ludwig treated themselves to new cars — David a Dodge pickup, Barbara a sporty Mazda 3. With David making $22 an hour and Barbara $19, they could easily afford the payments. A month later, Baldwin Hardware, a unit of Stanley Black & Decker Corp., announced layoffs at the Reading plant where they both worked. David was unemployed for 20 months before finding a janitor job that paid $10 an hour, less than half his previous wage. Barbara hung on, but she, too, lost her shipping-dock job of 26 years as

A machete wielding madman stabbed three men outside of a Brooklyn catering hall, cops said. The men were arguing outside of the Africa House Banquet and Catering hall in Flatbush around 2:40 a.m. Saturday, on Bedford and Snyder Avenues, according to police. But the argument turned when the unidentified suspect pulled out the machete and diced them up, cops said. The first victim, a 19-year-old man, was stabbed in the neck, cops said. He is currently fighting for his life at Kings County Hospital, along with his pal who was stabbed in the chest. A third man was stabbed in

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., warned that the next 9/11 attack could emanate from Iraq and Syria if the U.S. does not take steps to immediately halt the advance of the Islamic militants sweeping toward the Iraqi capital of Baghdad. "We need air power immediately to stop the advance toward Baghdad," Graham said on CBS´ "Face the Nation" Sunday, warning that the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) - the jihadists who are an offshoot of al Qaeda - could control the entire northern half of the country and use it to march on Jordan and Lebanon while Iran moves

2014 US Open: Zach Johnson
made an ace and it was awesome

Zach Johnson is 7 over through his first 63 holes of the tournament but he might have just had the non-knickers moment of the 2014 US Open with this ace. The celebration was my favorite part. I thought he was going to lay somebody out but he gave a high five to everybody on the 9th hole, instead. Strangely, Kenny Perry was playing with Johnson. Why is that strange? Because Perry was playing with Peter Jacobsen in 2005 when he made an ace in the third round of the US Open on the same hole.

On Saturday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Up w/Steve Kornaki,” former Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele said there was push for outgoing-Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) to head the Republican National Committee after he leaves office in January. Steele pointed to the build-up of the 2016 presidential election cycle as a reason for the push behind Cantor. “The ‘what’s next’ is always the big play in Washington – what do you do next,” Steele said. “And with the upcoming presidential election, there’s a lot of interest in Eric Cantor serving as national chairman of the RNC –

Top Jeb Bush adviser Mike Murphy, who did not even pay attention to Dave Brat´s campaign like Breitbart News did, has falsely been claiming that Cantor´s embrace of amnesty for illegal immigrants was not the reason he lost last Tuesday. Liberal writer Mickey Kaus had enough of Murphy´s nonsense and slammed him on Twitter on Friday evening. Kaus became Brat´s de facto press secretary and top advocate on Twitter in the last months of the campaign because Kaus, like Brat, opposes amnesty for illegal immigrants because it would hurt American workers. He mentioned to Murphy that talk radio host Laura Ingraham

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. – It´s perhaps appropriate that President Barack Obama is vacationing this weekend in California, where the state flag features a roaming grizzly. The restless president, who has compared himself to a caged animal on recent wanderings by declaring the "bear is loose," took a long Father´s Day weekend away with his wife and older daughter. The visit to the desert resort area of Palm Springs is one of the ways Obama has been trying to escape during his sixth year cloistered in the White House.

ISIS, the brutal insurgent/terrorist group formerly known as al Qaeda in Iraq, has seized much of western and northern Iraq and even threatens towns not far from Baghdad. From where did ISIS spring? One of George W. Bush´s most toxic legacies is the introduction of al Qaeda into Iraq, which is the ISIS mother ship. If this wasn´t so tragic it would be supremely ironic, because before the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003, top Bush officials were insisting that there was an al Qaeda-Iraq axis of evil. Their claims that Saddam Hussein´s men were training members of al Qaeda how to

Anaheim, CA - President Obama, appearing emboldened after his recent move to cut carbon emissions from coal-fired power plants, on Saturday ridiculed members of Congress who deny climate change or plead scientific ignorance as an alibi for avoiding an uncomfortable truth. Speaking in gleefully sarcastic terms to a commencement ceremony at the University of California, Irvine, Mr. Obama likened those who deny climate change to people who would have told John F. Kennedy, at the dawn of the space program, that the moon “was made of cheese.” He saved his most scathing words for lawmakers who say they are not qualified to

Obama issued the call to the tens of thousands gathered at Angel Stadium even though he said Congress ´is full of folks who stubbornly and automatically reject the scientific evidence´ and say climate change is a hoax or fad.

Speaking to about 300 guests at "a luxury resort in the Rocky Mountains" with other potential GOP presidential hopefuls like Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), Scarborough reportedly urged the establishment donors and insiders to being a “Draft Romney” movement. “This is the only person that can fill the stage,” Scarborough said at a summit hosted by Romney, according to a Washington Post report.

A cottage industry grew up following the revelation that Rosemary Woods, Richard Nixon’s secretary, performed feats of contortionism worthy of Barnum and Bailey in order to “accidentally” erase 18 1/2 minutes of a June 20, 1972, tape that most experts agree contained a conversation between the president and Chief of Staff H.R. Haldeman discussing Watergate. Here is Woods demonstrating her act: Perhaps some day we’ll have a similar photo of how Lois Lerner “accidentally” crashed her computer to erase nearly two years of emails.
