MREs: Are They Really as Gross as Their Reputation Says?

MREs — or Meals Ready to Eat — have developed a horrible reputation among the fighting men and women for whom they were invented.

Bestowed by service members with nicknames like “Meals Rarely Edible” and “Meals Rejected by Everyone,” these long-lasting military food rations are built to withstand a 1,250-foot parachute drop, but can they withstand their reputation as barely edible, tasteless bricks of calories — are MREs really as bad as everyone says?

Certainly Not a Home-Cooked Meal

The reality is that no soldier, sailor, airman or Marine will ever tell you that he or she has eaten an MRE that reminded him or her of home.

Stuffed with calories, vitamins and minerals, MREs are packed in extra-tough plastic pouches and designed to have a scary-long shelf life. They can be scarfed down cold or heated with an enclosed, water-activated flameless heater. They’re consumed during short breaks or while on the move. It’s the fastest fast food in the (Read More....)


The Kitchen Sink Is Here!

Falling Off the Hunger Cliff

by MN Gordon Economic Prism

The October edition of Smithsonian magazine tells us that “With five simple words in the Declaration of Independence – ‘all men are created equal’ – Thomas Jefferson undid Aristotle’s ancient formula, which had governed human affairs until 1776: ‘From the hour of their birth, some men are marked out for subjection, others for rule.’”

Aristotle’s sentiments are obviously nonsense.  However, if you’ve ever reported to jury duty, and sat in a courthouse selection room all day among peers, you know that Jefferson got it wrong too.  For all men are not created equal…there’s a vast spectrum of people ranging from idiot to genius.

According to Thomas A. Patterson, in The American Democracy – Alternate Edition, what Jefferson – a slave owner – meant when he said “all men are created equal” is that all Americans are entitled to equal justice under the law.  The Smithsonian article attempts to reconcile the conflict between Jefferson’s words and actions as follows: “The very existence of slavery in the era of the American Revolution presents a paradox, and we have largely been content to leave it at that, since a paradox can offer a comforting state of moral (Read More....)
