Toxic ‘Honey Laundering’: Proof That Free Market Libertarians Like Rand Paul Are Morons

According to a Food Safety News investigation, more than a third of honey consumed in the US has been smuggled from China and may be tainted with illegal antibiotics and heavy metals. To make matters worse, some honey brokers create counterfeit honey using a small amount of real honey, bulked up with sugar, malt sweeteners, corn or rice syrup, jaggery (a type of unrefined sugar) and other additives — known as honey laundering. This honey is often mislabelled and sold on as legitimate, unadulterated honey in places such as Europe and the US.

Corporations will never act altruistically as long as scumbaggery is most profitable. Without the government to do for the people what the people cannot do for themselves, namely, keep tabs on the corrupt greed of corporations, we would be even more at their mercy than we are now. It’s a bitter pill to swallow for libertarians but maybe it will go down better with a spoonful of honey. Or at least a honey-like substance laced with heavy metals and antibiotics.

Interesting. I had a coughing spell that lasted almost a month, so I mixed together some lemon juice and honey like I had when I was a kid, and the honey tasted just awful.

It was the cheapest brand possible from the local supermarket chain.

Whaddya wanna bet it was this shit?
