This is an example of how dumb the whiners on the left are (probably feeling the Bern and owing a lot of school debt). Agriculture is the most regulated industry in the country, and it's not capitalists who set the high standards for health, sanitation, weight, labeling, crop insurance, pesticide use, perfection, shipping, distribution, inspection, labor laws, import, export, etc., it's the local, state, and federal governments plus directives and policies. I wonder when the last time was that this poster picked up the wormy and bruised apple or the rotten potato instead of the one that was firm, quality tested and attractive. And no one in the U.S. goes hungry; the main job of the USDA is to distribute food. For example:
“Standards for the Growing, Harvesting, Packing and Holding of Produce for Human Consumption” regulation under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). The webinar will be led by Leanne Skelton, Biological Science Specialist with the AMS SCP and the USDA’s FDA Liaison, and Dr. Samir Assar, Director of FDA’s Division of Produce Safety. Just a sample how you can learn about regulations.
