Abandoned small farms, total management of the food supply and seed, control of nutrients and further entrenchment of the pharmaceutical and corporate farming industries is the goal of certain elements influencing legislation now before Congress. It's another criminal end around to destroy the rights of individuals and undermine the health of the nation.

Nicole Johnson presents a concise evaluation of the individuals and corporations involved.

  1. Welcome to "Sharecropping in the 21st Century!"

    Here in MO, the Department of Constipation is trying to push thru a regulation that would force farmers to fence off any streams on their farms from livestock.

    That move would put thousands of small family farms out of business, as they wouldn't be able to afford that cost.

    And that would suit ADM, Cargill, Perdue, etc just fine.

  2. Watershed signs have been placed on highways all over TN to remind us who controls the water.

    I haven't heard of any attempt to force farmers to fence off their creeks but it is happening for some new home construction and in government programs that subsidize fencing for cattle farmers.

    There are so many creeks in this area that the farmers would be up in arms should this be attempted.

    Eliminating small farmers for other reasons would seem the logical step for the feds or states to take before forcing the fences. The opposition would be gone.

  3. The MDC tried another stunt about two years ago that would have forced people getting water from deep wells to have a meter installed, just so the MDC could see how much water was being used.

    Right.

    The shit hit the fan and the uproar was loud enough to back the MDC off from that plan.

    It won't be any fun when a handful of corporations control all our frankenfood. Farmers are a little too free for the whores in DC they can't have that. I like that painting with the wagon by the fence it is cool.
