    The soap, along with a scrubber to get into the nooks and crannies, should be sufficient to remove surface bacteria.

    Washing the surface will not remove bacteria that have penetrated into the fruit. I always throw fruit away if it has a break in the skin.

    I believe that it is common practice to wash produce with bleach when it is picked. So it comes from the farm clean, but all kinds of stuff can happen between the farm and the store. Plus, in the store, people like to feel produce before they buy it—and they could have anything on their hands.

    Has chlorine stopped killing bacteria?

    Cryptosporidium is not killed by chlorine. And it spreads through contaminated water.

    Not that cutting funding to the EPA will have any effect on Cryptosporidium. Infectious diseases are the CDC’s concern.

  • The Root For The Lack Of Action AGAINST The Anthem Refuseniks

    Still fighting the fight, but I had the wind knocked out of me last night.

    Keep up the good fight.

    I'm thinking that the pendulum is starting to swing away from the non-stop socialism we've had thrust upon us since the 1960s (or maybe earlier). Just showing the socialists that their view (reinforced by the media) is not universal or even majority is a big step in the right direction.

  • FACT CHECK: Did Clintons Allow 20% of American Uranium to Go to Russia?

    Many of us knew this before the election.

    This is why I believe Hillary came up with the lie that Russia was trying to get Trump elected. It’s the same old leftist tactic of being caught at something, and then trying to deflect attention from themselves by accusing their opponents of doing something even worse. Hillary did not want her pay-for-play deals with Russia examined during the campaign, and the media was only too happy to start chasing rabbits on her behalf.

    I hope and pray that she is finally brought to justice. She enriched herself personally by endangering the security of the United States. Thank God she is not President, where she would have been in a position to commit grave harm to the country. Actually, I think her intent was to deliver the death blow after Obama weakened us for 8 long years.

    I remember starting off every school day by reciting, “I pledge of legions to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for witches stands, one nation, under God, invisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

    Then, in Girl Scouts, we had a lesson on the Pledge of Allegiance, which not only taught the correct words, but discussed the meaning. I remember being confused, because the pledge was not about legions in an invisible nation at all.

    The real problem is not whether or not the school leads the pledge, but that children are not taught the history. Instead, they are taught some horror story in place of history, with the implication often reinforced that the founding of this country was so horrific and evil that the country should be eradicated and the ground salted where it used to exist.

    If the left were consistent, they would advocate for the destruction of every country, because there is no country on earth that has a perfect past. But they are not consistent—and, in fact, seem to embrace countries which routinely practice brutality far exceeding anything we have ever done as a country.

    In a perfect world, there would be no words for assault, rape, theft, etc., because everyone would treat each other with dignity and respect. But in Hollywood, it is a crime to point that out? Just wow.

    The fact is, every service member knows what he or she signed up for.

    In casualty notification training, they sometimes teach that families are actually somewhat prepared for a service-related death, in that the possibility is always at the back of their minds. They are typically not as shocked by a combat death as they are by other types of deaths of service members.

    I did not watch any of the networks during the election.

    Hillary had sold Russia access to our uranium supply for a sizable “donation” to the Clinton “foundation.” She had to invent the collusion story to distract attention from her own corruption. With the left, it’s always a game of projecting their crimes onto the Republicans to try to claim the Republicans are committing even more egregious crimes than the Democrats.

    In a world with a real press, the press would be asking the question of why the Russians would act to promote a candidate that seems honest by all evidence over a candidate that they have already bought and know they could get much more from in the future. Instead, the “press” ran with Hillary’s ridiculous and baseless self-serving claim. But we do not have a real press, and so I do not watch them.

    "The big lie is a very potent tool," she said.

    Indeed it is. Unfortunately for her, more people are becoming skeptical of the big lie.

    It would be nice to see a day when liars like Hillary are called out and challenged on their lies. The day isn't here yet, but it will be soon.

  • Trump says he's looking 'very, very strongly' at welfare reform

    President Donald Trump said Monday his administration will start to consider reforming the welfare system in the United States, saying that some people are "taking advantage of the system."

    Having spent part of my childhood in a welfare household, I can attest that "taking advantage of the system" is part of the poverty culture. For example, when I was a kid, there was a deposit on soda bottles, which were collected, washed, and reused. But if people bought the soda with food stamps, they did not have to pay the deposit. But they could still turn in the bottles for the deposit in cash. For kids who wanted to spend the summer playing pin-ball, those bottles were a way to get coins for the pin-ball machines.

    Since I dislike soda, I wouldn't even drink the stuff. I'd pour most of it out and take the bottle back for the deposit.

    There were plenty of other ways to game the system, and I'm sure there are even more now.

    Personally, I think Hillary should have to reimburse the taxpayers for this expensive witch hunt that is the “special counsel.” It was, after all, her careless and baseless claim during her campaign that caused the witch hunt to be launched in the first place.

    I went to collage, too. Then I decided that going to college instead would be better for my career in the long run. After all, any 2nd grader can do collage.

    There was a drumbeat much like this when Reagan was President. It was partly because of that, and the fact that the people who were so salivating over the hope that a Republican President would get us into nuclear war turned out to be so wrong that I became “exDemMom.”

    If any President is responsible for N. Korea’s warmongering, I would blame the President who gave them the means to advance their nuclear weapons development. Kim jong-un’s belligerence is not caused by whoever is in office. The only difference is that it is likely that Hillary, with her warmongering desires openly stated during the campaign, would not be criticized for lobbing nuclear missiles over there. Instead, we’d be treated with serious analyses of how she is taking the lead, bla, bla, bla.

    They may be small, but they have far higher population densities. In the US, higher murder rates tend to correlate with higher population densities. But Japan and South Korea, with their dense populations, do not have those high murder rates.

    Wow, this article is like so many of the scientific articles that constitute the “proof” of anthropogenic global warming—no matter what the actual cause of the phenomenon being reported, always include the phrase “because of climate change.”

    It could never be that the road is sinking because it was built over a marsh... never...

    The article illustrates something else. Despite the proposition system that is supposed to cause bonds to be issued for various infrastructure or school projects, those projects still never have sufficient funding. Hmm... what if the state of CA would stop diverting tax and bond revenues to social programs (e.g. education and health care for illegal aliens) and used them for their intended purpose?

    Every time I go back to CA, I see that the infrastructure decay continues... yet the cost of living is outrageous and the rate of taxation is burdensome. The state’s budget has been mismanaged for years.

    Thank you.

    They were each sick with something different. It was just pure bad luck that their chronic illnesses became terminal within days of each other.

    Our old lady was 19 years old. I still remember when she came strutting into our yard, insisting that she belonged there despite all of my attempts to tell her otherwise. I put a collar on her, which she would sometimes lose and then bring back days later after she found it. She was the only cat I ever had who liked her collar.

    There is no need for a law to get people to adopt shelter animals. Just have ads for them on TV and the newspapers... people will adopt them.

    When I lived in CA, I did not need to adopt animals ever. Cats just showed up in my yard.

    After three of my yard cats died over Easter week, I did go to an animal shelter to get a new cat. Apparently, in my new neighborhood, there are no stray cats looking for a home.

    To make a law to require pet stores to sell shelter pets is ludicrous. Most pet stores do that voluntarily. I checked all of the local pet stores and the shelter to find the perfect cat.
