The Feathers Are Going To Fly: Your Alternative to the Fargo Forum
All writers have selected a "Phantom Name" due to the controversial content and editorial mission of the publication. The decision was made to help protect their professional standings in the community. This underground newspaper is dedicated to seeking truth and justice and revitalizing the role of the free press as a guardian of liberty. We remain faithful to the traditional and central role of a free press in a free society - as a light exposing wrongdoing, corruption and abuse of power. This is why we are not accepting advertising for this venture. This is why we have assembled a arsenal of writers from all walks of life and income status. Hawk and Dove is also designed to stimulate a free-and-open debate about political ideas facing the Red River Valley. Through educating and advocacy, we will continue to promote democracy. One constant motivation is the old-fashioned notion that the principal role of the free press in a free society is to serve as a watchdog on government - to expose corruption, fraud, waste and abuse wherever and whenever it is found.

Fargo Forum Alternative: China Poisoning US Food Supply
Fargo ND, China Poisoning US Food Supply.
America's Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is investigating if ingredients imported from China and used in recalled pet food were spiked intentionally with an industrial chemical to boost their apparent protein content.
If so, is this a case of greed--or bio-terrorism? The FDA won't comment. Officials concede, however, that contaminated foods from China are becoming a growing problem as the Communist Party-ruled country plays a greater part in the global food chain, thanks to globalization. In China, chemical use is high and regulations are lax, or routinely violated (corruption is rampant). The FDA has the authority to inspect imports for contaminants that are in violation of US law; but the agency only has the resources to physically check a small fraction of them.
To make matters worse, China's retail sales arm--the brutal, Main Street-busting behemoth known as Wal-Mart--plans to grow so-called organic food in China. Organic food ... from a country plagued by toxic industrial pollution that taints the water and soil in which the crops are grown. Wonderful.
Back to the FDA. The agency's food sleuths are still awaiting visas that would allow them to visit the Chinese factories where the vegetable protein ingredients were produced. While they're waiting, they could check out the video below to get a feel for what ordinary Americans think about China's newest threat to US national security.
