Another Freaky Friday From the FDA

Via Ellroon, the FDA had another Friday notification. The agency advises people who have been importing glycerin to check to ensure that they didn’t receive diethylene glycol [DEG].

Both are sweet syrups, but glycerin is used in the manufacture of cough syrups and children’s form of medications, while DEG is a toxic liquid used in automotive anti-freeze and solvents.

There are dozens of cases of dogs dying from drinking pools of anti-freeze from leaking radiators every year, like the melamine from last Friday, it causes renal failure in pets and humans.

France Had An Election

La France

They are allowed. They elected a president who promised to clean up France’s illegal immigrant problem to ensure that people like his parents [a Greek immigrant mother and Hungarian immigrant father] are never allowed to settle in France again and have children who can become president. [You can probably guess that he’s a “conservative”.]

The BBC reports Sarkozy takes French presidency and note that “[b]oth candidates worked hard to woo the supporters of the third-placed candidate in round one, centrist Francois Bayrou.” [Francois Bayrou is French for Ralph Nader.]

The BBC also provides some background on the differences between the candidates, Royal v Sarkozy: The policies.

The winner,Nicolas Sarkozy, heads the Union Pour un Mouvement Populaire (UMP) – center right coalition. [That’s French for fascist-lite.]

The loser, Segolene Royal of Parti Socialiste, was hurt by intraparty controversy. [The “old boys” didn’t want a “girl” to be in charge.]

The French left shares a lot of the characteristics of the Democratic Party.
