The True “Hot Dog” Story

At New York’s Coney Island hot dog eating contest, the male winner downed 62 dogs, while the female winner swallowed 40 of these puppies. There are three separate questions about eating America’s favorite summer cook-out meat.
  • One: who can eat so many of these things, and how big is their stomach?
  • Two: who wants to eat these mystery meat things, not knowing the true, hidden ingredients.  
  • Three: How do hotdogs match the Federal government’s legislation and regulations?
America’s hot dog enthusiasts have 2 favorite brands: Nathan's Famous Beef Franks; with ingredients of  Beef, water, contains less than 2% of salt, sorbitol, sodium lactate, natural flavorings, sodium phosphate, hydrolyzed corn protein, paprika, sodium diacetate, sodium erthorbate, sodium nitrite ;Oscar Mayer Classic Beef Franks with ingredients of Beef, water, contains less than 2% of salt, corn syrup, potassium lactate, dextrose, sodium phosphate, sodium diacetate, flavor, ascorbic acid, extractives of paprika, sodium nitrite.
If the reader will do his/her own research, processed mystery meats are in the dogs. ” Ingredients of “Beef’” may include heart, unborn calves, beef tallow, etc. Industry mandated labeling prints how much salt and sodium are added. What is “natural flavoring” the processor drops into the receipt?
Nutritionists do not recommend highly processed meats.  The best food stuff is fresh, without chemicals, and as close to its natural state as possible. Hot dogs will for certain occasions or in a pinch. That best food survival attitude comes close to how our present greedy, run away federal government rules our lives. The feds substitute a bunch of “natural flavor” and different ingredients to compress legislative marshmallow packages.
From 2008 until the present, the exertive branch along with the legislative branch flavored America’s appetite with stimulus monies. Keeping the processed food chain active, they made Americans swallow a whole hog of socialized medicine: Obama’s national Health care. By the way registered voters, how’s this working out for our country? Unemployment jumped to 9.2 % in July; the national debt weighed in at $ 14 TRILLION; more home owners are underwater than those positively invested; crude oil moved upwards from $ 70 per barrel to $ 100 per barrel; companies are not hiring, while 14.2 million people are without jobs, income or financial stability; illegal immigration is shoved to the back burner, while drug wars persist, law enforcement is stymied, and our borders remain porous; the nation’s foreign policy lacks focus or relevancy….Like hot digs, the movers and shakers within D.C.”s beltway keep adding extra additives.
Even after eating you fill of hot dogs, you aren’t through with their effects. Two days later, you will have constipation!   An just like the federal government, Death, Taxes and Constipation are eventual outcomes.
