Trying to Decipher Propaganda about Farming
#11
As a farmer/gardener I can tell you that something big is in fact happening. In the past week alone I have had three visits from local food markets wanting my produce. All I can say is you all better be stocking up on food and seeds.

Hemp will return
Here is a great video about the benefits of hemp




Hemp seeds are a form of super food like microgreens.

Several years ago, in California, it was getting hard to find hay because the farmers were selling to China and getting more profit from them than they could get by selling it locally....

That is part of it, dependency on foreign trade profit...

Also at the market the other day, a lb of bacon was nearly 5 bucks.. I commented and the butcher said it was going to get worse because of China and pigs...

I thought we produced our own pigs, not imported from China.. but do not hold me to that...

Both Nixon and Bush signed strategic economics agreements with China Bush back in 1987...

The farmers have to regroup, but Trump is a city boy and he does not understand planning years in advance, he also does not seems to care about the welfare of animals.  He needs some farm schooling....
The chinese actually grow many of their pigs here. They own the land and the pigs. Not sure how exporting works in that case, since they are already the owners.

I would love to know how the reds can own land and we the natural born citizens can't.

Guess who the largest holders of prime farm land in the US is ?
The big 3 oil companies (Shell, Exxon and BP).
Why, you ask ? Because newer model autos being built are made to run on damn near pure Ethanol (corn gas) if needed.
The big 3 saw this as a threat 15 years ago and started buying up prime farmland so they could reduce or prevent the production of Ethanol from corn.
This cuts into their profits and that is why over 30 million acres of prime farmland across the US sits fallow to this day....

Do you think they would care if they poisoned you? Most of the cases of liver cancer are from poor farming practices

Yet we have to subsidize them
