I know this has been discussed in other threads but, as the son of a livestock broker and cattle farmer, this issue hits real close to home. Anyways, this all got started with a post I made on facebook: "Why do we blame unemployment on the government? Job creation is not their responsibility." Well someone brought up the prices of corn, wheat, etc. I did a bit of research and it seems that government subsidies deserve much of the blame for high food costs. Yeah, not sure how we got from job creation to corn prices either, but that topic really intrigued me. It's something I think deserves much attention. I believe that, with food prices soaring over the past few years, an agricultural reformation is imminent. It seems to me the solution would be the decentralization of agriculture: to move toward more locally grown produce. Also, thought I'd throw this out there. It's an article about a lettuce plant here in Tennessee, actually, less than 10 miles from my job. They use advanced hydroponic technology to grow their produce. This is a good way to go but we can't rely solely on this. Like with a mutual fund, we ought to diversify. I think that in the near future we'll see more people growing with hydroponics as well as more people growing, selling and consuming produce on a more local scale. lettuce link: http://ucbjournal.com/news.php?id=244 Thoughts?
Stalin took over agriculture and consequently millions of people died of starvation. You can find long videos about this. Learn from history or repeat it. "Obama seizes control over all food, farms, livestock, farm equipment, fertilizer and food production across America" http://www.naturalne...ood_supply.html It's not just Obama. He is just a puppet. In a few years Obama will be irrelevant but the USA government takeover of agriculture will continue. In the extremely unlikely event that Ron Paul becomes prez, he will be assassinated. The takeover of agriculture will not be confined to the USA. It will be worldwide under a world government. It will be Stalin on steroids. Deaths will be not millions, but billions. Unless people wake up. I will tell you a little secret. The Powers That Be are terrified. They are terrified that we outnumber them by a big ratio and if we ever figure that out, there goes their way of life. video 2:24
