South Korea and karma

South Korea and karma

Four years ago there were massive demonstrations in South Korean against the importing of American beef.  The South Korean lifted the ban on American beef to allow the beef to be sold in there.  This upset many in South Korea fearing mad cow disease and ripe for exploiting by commie instigators living south of the 38th parallel on the Korean peninsula. 

Their paranoia in reference to American beef was in question especially knowing South Korea sends thousands of students to the United States of America (USA) to study.  While in the USA not a one has contacted “mad cow,” after eating American beef.

Also now it is four years later after American beef resumed sales in South Korea and no incidents of mad cow.  Wow? 

Here is the karma part:  The Federal Drug and Food Administration (FDA) have issued an advisory against purchasing and consuming shellfish from South Korea.  This advisory has now developed into a ban.  The claim is the shellfish from South Korea may be contaminated due to “inadequate water pollution controls” in the areas of South Korea where they are growing the shellfish. 

But where are the massive demonstrations in the USA against Korean shellfish?  Can you hear the crickets instead of the protestors?  Hmmmm?
