organic, or maybe not

sometimes the loopholes in laws that get purchased are pretty blatant. like the one talked about in this msnbc article about repealing a loophole in the organic food labelling law. i'm sure that the $5,000 that fieldale farms has contributed to rep. nathan deal's 2004 campaign has nothing to do with how that amendment slipped in. or the $5,000 they contributed in the 2002 election cycle. deal really need the money for that 2002 race. after all, he ran unopposed. i guess that was cheaper than actually feeding organic feed to chickens in order to label the resulting eggs and meat as organic.
