Oklahoma GOP State Senator Ralph Shortey is one politician who is not afraid to take on special interest groups. This month he has introduced a bill that will enrage that powerful lobby of commercial product cannibals who seek to use human fetuses to spice up food. Shortey’s bill would prohibit the manufacturing and sale of food “which contains aborted human fetuses.” First, however, you will have to find one.
Shortey has yet to come up with an example of the growing cannibal problem in U.S. food supply or a study that supports the need for a prohibition. Indeed, he admits “I don’t know if it is happening in Oklahoma, it may be, it may not be.” Well, that seems pretty solid to me.
In one interview, Shortey says that he found “suggestions online.” There is a great deal of suggestive material online of course, but U.S. Food and Drug Administration spokeswoman Pat El-Hinnawy responded to questions by saying that the “FDA is not aware of this particular concern.”
Featured today on the Oklahoma GOP site, Shortey is described as someone who “worked as an oil and gas production consultant . . . he and his family have been living on savings since he filed for office in June.” Before cannibalism, his main issue was illegal immigration: “[The voters] want something done about illegal immigration and they want something tough.” This may be related in that companies could be smuggling in illegal immigrants through our food supply.
Of course, the cannibal apologists are all over Shortey. Powerful restaurants like Big Boy and Kenny Rogers Roasters, of course, are staying behind the scenes despite their obvious advertising enticing customers with human food symbology. What are you eating when you order a Jack in the Box, I ask you.
Shortey is one of the few who will stand firm and say “you want a piece of me? Come and try.” Thank you Senator Shortey and God’s speed.
