SH, "It infers that it's "hormone free".
WRONG. It STATES that it is hormone free. Try again...what does it INFER? Statements are meant to convey a message. What message is being conveyed?
SH,"Want to make a valid comparison? Would you support an FDA approved test for testing children for colon cancer? Why not?
What if the test included a disclaimer that stated, "there is no guarantee that a child testing negative will not receive colon cancer later in life".
Then would you support it?"
I wouldn't support it but I wouldn't stand in the way of it's approval. I figure if folks want to toss their money away, it's their decision.
SH, "Same level of stupidity for supporting 100% testing that reveals nothing."
LMAO. Want to talk about stupidity, how about supporting a policy that runs counter to stated mission statements? How about claiming to embrace less government intervention, support value adding of products, and preaching the values of exports while falling in line and prohibiting exactly that? How flipping stupid is it to keep supporting a policy that has proven to be a failure? How tremendously hypocritical is it to value our own soverignity, and then trample on another nations? Where is the intelligence of a post in telling another nation that they need to change their laws and base them on "sound science"? What kind of high-headed marketing strategies completly ignore cultural differences in international dealing?
Where is any kind of rational reasoning in stating testing would set a dangerous precidence of giving a country something we are not giving our domestic customers, and then negotiating a policy where we promise to do exactly that?
How much money needs to be left on the table before you get it? How entrenched in Japan do you want the Aussies to get before you get it? How much to we have to tork off their government and citizens before you get it?
You need to take off those welding glasses USDA gave you and drink some R-CALF kool-aid - you're trying to defend complete BS and it's just flying back on you.

We have proof that R-CULT has jeoprodized our position with Japan.
Didn't you read it?
