Free Beef for Life

May 23, 2013

Looks like Charles Ramsey will never go hungry as long as he still has a hankering for beef. Ramsey, who was famously eating a burger form McDonalds on his porch when he heard Cleveland kidnap victim Amanda Berry scream for help, was offered free burgers for life from 14 area restaurants. Hodge’s, the restaurant where Ramsey washes dishes, even created a special item on the menu – the Ramsey Burger – and is selling Hero T-shirts with Ramsey’s liking on the front.

McDonalds, however, has not matched the free beef offers. Guess Ramsey will have to adapt to a more upscale taste. Good thing for cattlemen Ramsey wasn’t eating McNuggets…

I plead the Fifth!

Anyone surprised the IRS director who pled the Fifth is an interesting bedfellow with HSUS? Perhaps she better dig up her U.S. History notes…looks like she botched her Constitutional right. Appears Congress is saving her hot seat for another round.

Not-so-COOL action by the USDA

The not-so-COOL action by the USDA gets a thumbs-down from ranchers. Cowmen better sharpen their pencils and loosen their pocketbooks. Packers better stock up on Excedrin®.
