    i was sent this email and it really gets you to thinking ,
    look at phils thread about the newly discovered disease .
    makes ya wonder if maybe this is the handy work of the
    foreign scientists that we have heard about but most choose to ignore.
    could it be that the weapons of mass destruction have the ability
    to be contained in such a small very easily overlooked vial?????
    just a thought.
    heres the text i was sent below this:::
    In the 60s, Popeye the Sailor Man guzzled spinach from a can in order to battle the bad guys. He became an icon of good health for those who ate vegetables and exercised.
    As of this week across America, you don't want to eat spinach nor any vegetables grown and picked by America’s newest slave class. Restaurants called for a ban on serving spinach salads. I'll bet most Americans shy away from lettuce, cabbage and other leafy vegetables in the coming weeks. They’re all grown and harvested under the same conditions and same people.
    Why? As of Wednesday, 146 citizens in 23 states suffered E-Coli infection and one died.
    How do you think this disease outbreak occurred?
    To bring it into sobering focus, please understand that 20 million illegal aliens crossed into America in the past 20 years without any kind of health screening. They work picking our food, washing our dishes in restaurants and, as is the norm in Third World countries, rarely if ever wash their hands after using the toilet. Additionally, most of them suffer functional illiteracy. They do not practice personal hygiene or health habits most Americans assume as a normal aspect of living.
    While on my 21st Century Paul Revere Ride this summer through 48 states, I saw thousands of illegal aliens working in fields the length of California. I rode through Salinas Valley where illegals cultivated crops. I noticed porta-potties sometimes and none at other times. I never saw hand washing facilities.
    Pause for a moment, and consider cleanliness habits of Third World people with a fifth grade education. Why does disease affect millions in the Third World? What happens when millions migrate illegally to our country? Might dozens or more do their morning constitutional amongst the crops for lack of a porta-potty? Might the contamination be spread across the fields by the common practice of flood irrigation? Would flooding spread the contamination further? You never hear the major TV networks address or experts talk about this aspect of the contamination of our foods. It’s a cover-up, plain and simple. They only report it when it breaks out beyond their ability to squelch it. Remember Chi Chi’s Restaurants in Pennsylvania that killed several customers because the work staff suffered hepatitis infections? Remember the Center for Disease Control stating they thought the source originated in Mexican fields irrigated with sewage water?
    Have you heard about the latest multi drug resistant tuberculosis outbreaks in Philadelphia, Atlanta and near Cleveland this summer? We've imported at least 16,000 cases of TB in the past five years according to latest reports. Before that, TB was virtually extinct in America.
    Tuberculosis kills 2,000,000 people world wide annually. Where? In the Third World! Why? Illiteracy, contaminated water, limited food and lack of hospital care! We've imported 7,000 cases of leprosy in the past three years. It’s endemic to the northeast of the United States for the first time ever. Have you heard about it by the major networks? Not a chance!
    In an April 25, 2004 front page story of the Santa Barbara News Press, Anatomy of an Outbreak, one illegal alien infected 56 others with tuberculosis. After he avoided police for months, they finally captured him and placed him in quarantine. In September, 2005, a school child in Fort Morgan, Colorado contracted tuberculosis while attending school. How? An illegal alien student suffered from the disease, but was not screened before attending school. Our national media silences these outbreaks.
    Do you see a pattern here? It’s called Third World Momentum. All the consequences affecting the Third World now manifest in our country. As millions of illegals import themselves into the United States, they bring diseases. They rarely change their sanitation habits or lack thereof. They work in our meat and chicken processing plants at $6.00 an hour. Do you think they bring any responsibility and pride to their work? As more corrupt CEOs bribe health inspectors and OSHA officials, our food sources suffer degraded standards.
    Illegal aliens by the millions work in our restaurants. Last spring, a reader of this column from New York City reported, Our manager last night ran cursing out the back door of the restaurant with a hand towel box in his hand…illegals had been using the toilet and threw their used toilet paper into the box because that’s what they do in Mexico because sewage systems can't take tissue paper. The illegals had been throwing their used toilet paper into the hand towel box! I traveled through Mexico and saw it myself. This story represents the tip of an ugly disease epidemic growing in America.
    As a nation, what we’re facing is like a 50 car pile up on a foggy morning on an expressway in Pennsylvania. Everyone speeding into the blinding fog bank begins slowing down too late. Someone brakes hard when another car slows down abruptly. The cars behind can't stop; the chain reaction pile-up begins.
    Doesn't anyone see what’s happening to America? Apparently not! Sixty-two of your 100 senators voted S.B. 2611. That bill assures our growth by 100 million in the next 34 years. However, that’s 100 million people mostly from Third World countries. That ensures pockets of poverty and disease already ravaging millions in those countries to be transplanted into America.
    For all Americans, this E-Coli outbreak stands as a harbinger of things to come. When you degrade health standards, hire illegal aliens carrying multiple of diseases or disease provoking habits, you've got a national crisis in the making.
    Ironically, even our U.S. Senators stand at risk as well as their families. Even if they live in gated communities, at some point in time, with these illegal aliens invading every nook and cranny of our society everyone becomes vulnerable to disease, terror, death and fraud wrought by this invasion.
    With this E-Coli outbreak, even Popeye may find himself headed for the emergency room. However, he'll be forced to wait in line behind countless illegal aliens given free access ahead of him. Not only that, he'll be paying for their doctor visits with his hard earned tax dollars. This time, at the end of the cartoon, he won't be chortling with Olive Oil.

    PLEASE PRAY FOR OUR GOVERNMENT TO STOP ILLEGAL ENTRY INTO OUR COUNTRY -- We NEED the safeguards, like health screening etc.!!!

    very good post , but reaching out to the BOC with this wont help prevent the problem , if there was some way of getting all the news stations in the USA to show this and act upon it then and only then would the politicians of this country pay attention to the big picture

    I didnt read all of it. Didnt have too. Not a surprise to me.
    That is why I keep a PMF handy. I blow it back at em. Do that and light a match. That will kill the E-Coli LMAO>

    What do we call other countries like that. 3rd world. :roll_eyes:

    Really triggered some ideas and got the brain to thinking. Sounds logic that the possible spread of E-Coli was threw fecal matter in our vegetable fields. I had heard on the news that the orange crop this year might be low cause there was no mexicans to pick the oranges. I instanstly thought of the inmates. Put the people in our prisons and jails to work. Dress them in pink jumpers and chain-gain them. Im sure that we have just as many prisoners as illegals.
    These people from third world countries arent as clean as we are. When handling our nations crops, proper actions oughta be taking with the FDA to see that they are properly vacinated at least. Seems that would hold these growers liable for crop contamination wouldnt it?
    Thanks for posting this ever so looooong thread. Its a good one and I appreciate its insight.

    Where the hell is Fort Morgan, Colorado at :waaaht:

    Dang if it aint school shootings...its diseases....grrrr:crazy:

    Great post.

    As a side note.... Did you know it is legal to use any type of fertilizer in Mexico. That means animal AND human waste. :crazy:

    I make sure all the vegetables I buy are grown here in the states. Not imported from Mexico.

    For those of us who live in Texas, California, and Arizona, Mexican pickers coming over for the harvest is nothing new. Most of our vegetable crops that are picked with hand labor have been picked by Mexican nationals, both legal and illegal since the crop land was irrigated and put into production 75 years or more ago. Without them, the crops wouldn't be picked.

    I'm not advocating the use of that kind of labor, but I just don't see it being any worse than it was 50 years ago. The problem with illegals and possible diseases isn't in our crop fields, but the migration to the cities, condensed neighborhoods with close together housing where illegals tend to settle, inadequete health care, and reluctance to seek health care until its a real emergency because of fear of deportation. The outcry against treating sick illegals will lead to serious health risks for everyone.

    The key to illegal immigration lies with enforcement of existing laws and tougher ones to ensure employers do not hire illegals. But, food born illnesses are from many sources, pickers are not a major one. The whole food chain is suspect, from the farm to the grocer's shelves.

    Sorry, but the inmates are too busy in the prisons making business office furniture. This furniture is then purchased by the government for their office buildings. Furniture companies are going out of business because they don't have such access to low paid "chained labor".

    Kinda weird, isn't it?

    The spinach in question has been traced back to an organic farm, folks, they use manure to help the plants grow hence the E coli.

    I won't mention anything about the illegals, but we can't blame everything on them.

    Good post and good to know too.

    I received an e-mail this past week that the Navy's greatest hero had died. His spinach was contaminated and they put Popeye to rest. Even had the picture of him all laid out.

    Thanks for the link.

    It's kind of interesting to read that most cattle have E coli in them. I know that manure spreaders are commonly use on farms to fertilize corn and soybeans used in cattle feed. Hmmmm....I wonder how the cattle are getting infected with E coli?

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong but it looks like there's more than one vicious circle going on out there.

    hey this isnt something new! It was just picked up on and sensationalized by the media. e coli in leafy vegetables, chicken with salmonilla, rat parts in rice, etc., its nothin new! anyone ever even been in a vegetable field? they are open to the elements. where natural things happen; e coli being one of them. the government knows this, thats why they allow a certain percentage of the germ to be in leafy vegetables. otherwise farmers couldnt sell and you couldnt buy vegetables. its the same with any food product. ever been to a rice dryer? on any given day i gaurantee you could find a dead rat or parts of one in the auger that moves the rice from one bin to another. i dont know the percentages, but a certain amount of rat parts is allowed in rice because its unavoidable and is going to happen.
    everyone that buys mass produced food from grocery stores is playing russian roulette with all kinds of germs and diseases, its just the chances are very slim that you happen to pick the bag of spinach,or pound of hamburger, or package of chicken that will make you sick. it has to do with numbers and percentages, not whether pedro washed his hands or not!
