Willie Nelson: Occupy The Food System

February 17, 2012 by  

Willie Nelson: Occupy The Food System

Country star Willie Nelson is joining the fight against corporatism in America, though his focus is not on the banksters on Wall Street.

Nelson is calling on Americans to occupy the food system, saying that corporate control of food production is destroying soil and putting millions of family farmers out of business.

Nelson writes in a recent statement:

From seed to plate, our food system is now even more concentrated than our banking system. Most economic sectors have concentration ratios hovering around 40 percent, meaning that the top four firms in the industry control 40 percent of the market. Anything beyond this level is considered “highly concentrated,” where experts believe competition is severely threatened and market abuses are likely to occur.

Hundreds of citizens joined Occupy the Food System groups outside the Federal Courts in Manhattan on Jan. 31 to support organic family farmers in their landmark lawsuit against agribusiness giant Monsanto. Arguments were heard that day concerning the lawsuit by 83 plaintiffs representing more than 300,000 organic farmers, organic seed growers and organic seed businesses.

The suit alleges that Monsanto has attacked organic farmers, threatening patent infringement lawsuits if the farmers have any genetically modified seeds on their land. But the organic farmers really want nothing to do with the genetically modified seeds in the first place. The organic farm community contends that Monsanto’s lawsuit threats are simply a ploy to put small, family-owned farms out of business, thus further monopolizing agribusiness. A judge will decide whether the farmers’ suit will go to trial on March 31.

      Karolyn,
      We’ve finaly found something to agree upon. Nelson, (Liberal Redneck, how’s that for a contradiction in terms)should re-name his effort “Occupy Monsanto” for the fact that this corporations focus is far more hideous than market share greed alone. They are up to their eye-balls in “Agenda 21″ and population reduction VIA GMO sterilization. Not to mention the iradication of heirloom seeds from the hands of the public.

      • Robert Iandolo

        I know what Agenda 21 is but what does Monsanto have to do with it? What are you talking about with “They are up to their eye-balls in “Agenda 21″and population reduction VIA GMO sterilization. Not to mention the iradication of heirloom seeds from the hands of the public.”?

      • Michael J.

        Robert landolo,
        The links between Monsanto, Agenda 21, World Health Organization, Bill Gates, Codex Alementarius and others proceed to near infinity with population reduction being the common goal. The link provided is but one in a plethora of information available.

          Wow! I never knew this! Although i am not surprised.

    • Ellen

      Karolyn, I agree completely. It’s pretty obvious when you look around at the American public that we’re not eating well. Did anyone not learn about depleting soil from the Dustbowl? Also, Monsanto gave us aspertame, the poison that is outlawed all over the world. The FDA refused to approve stevia, the natural calorie-free sweetener until Coca Cola pushed them to do it. Stevia has been approved for decades in other countries and is obviously safe. Considering his involvement in FarmAid, Willie seems to be the right person to push this. I hope it becomes widely known.

      • http://gravatar.com/danceman100 danceman100

        Stevia is a natural sweetner and has been around for more than 5000 years. Also doesn’t raise blood sugar. There is also Lo Han which is Chinese monk fruit. Does not raise blood sugar either.

      • Joe H

        Danceman,
        Maybe, but I can’t stand the bitter aftertaste of stevia!!!

      Last fall Willie was trumpeting for Obama. What does that say about Willies mental state ?
      Maybe , way too many years of fried brain cells ??
      Seems Old Willie might still be living in the 60′s Hippy days, Reckon ??

      I am a old farm boy and understand what the real issue is , unlike Ol Willie “Thinks” he does .
      .
      Back in the mid 70′s when Willie began his farm aid benefits to help the bankrupted farmers out I was with him all the way.
      Now , some 35+ years later, I realize that Willie is a covert Socialist.
      While I am very concerned about how Monsanto , Cargil , Dekab , etc have jointly monopolized the farming industries by patenting / Controlling the seed that farmers simply , once saved from the previous year’s crop for next season’s planting , but now are forced to purchase from a very few seed provider corps , at very high prices , Prices that , you guessed it, are supported by Subsidies / Your’s & My Tax dollars.
      Take a guess “WHO” controls domestic & foreign international farm commodity Prices then try to understand my Factual assertion that these Evil Corps that Willie so detest are none other than, Big Bro gov in a sheep’s skin.
      Also, who in the U.S gov is aware of my claims?
      Hint, “We The People’s’ enemies within. I.E. 535 members of Congress, Obama, Bush 1&2, Carter, LBJ, etc, all controlled by the U.N.

      Oops, back to topic for a second.

      If a farmer is caught saving back any patented seed, {which is owned by the corps } for the next year’s planting season ,they “Will” be sued by the Seed Monopolies and likely Lose their Gov Farm subsidies {KEY Word / Government] .
      There is also the Fact that back in the mid 70′s is when the Gov / Socialist , takeover of the farms / FOOD began in earnest, one should try to read between the lines when people are fooled & say it’s all Monsanto, etc that has created the newest Farm Crisis.
      Anyone here want to take a wild guess at How Many Tax dollars have been poured into the Corporate Seed provider’s coffers over the last 40+ years ?? My guess, Trillions upon trillions of $$$

      If “Some” hear that think Willie is actually helping the farm crisis , I suggest they do some Historical Research of how the Socialist / Progressive’s agenda operates when imposing totalitarian objectives upon the masses, thus, one will be Forced to see that even Old Willie is being played to the max with the Corporate blame game.

      In short , all the hoopla / anger, & resentment about the Evil Corporate farms , IS being intentionally Misdirected to these corp entities.

      While this is a legitimate complaint to a point, One needs to Realize that these So Called Evil Corporations that are being used as the scapegoats for the Farm issues, are in effect Actually Owned, Controlled, & planned by none other than the Socialist Movement.

      Just in case “Some” here are not aware of where the Socialist Movement is HQ’d , Hint, U.N. / Globalist NWO offices in NYC.

      On a personal note, Just for the record.
      I don’t & never have Smoked Dope , alone, or with any doper, Particularly Old Willie like Toby Kieth sang about {another Useful Idiot Socialist } same as Willie is.
      However, I have been in a few situations when there was smoke from whacky Tabacy drifting into the house from the back yard of a house in the city , and being an old farm boy , the first time I ever even smelled the smoke from a joint, I had to wonder in my innocence “Who the hell is burning Cow manure out back ” ??

      So, It’s a given when I say ” I’ll Never smoke Dope with Willie Or Toby for the first time or ever.

      Nor: Will I ever drive 350 miles to darken the Doors Of Willie’s Place in Carl’s corner Texas Ever Again .
      Btw— Willies Place is “INCORPORATED” .

      IMO; Accepting any one else’s op at face value without considering the tail end results makes one a gullible azz.

      • DG

        FireMall – have you never changed your mind after you received more intel on a particular issue? If Monsanto is the stooge of UN as you claim, why bother with the front man? Any king or dispot will attempt to protect their domain. NO matter how it was attained and by any means. Willie is doing his bit to help. He has been railroaded by IRS already and most likely not to thrilled with any government controll. Just a guess there.

        Let’s support a better food system. The actors on stage portray the part given unless it is adlib. Machiavelli would be pleased to see different factions come together for a good cause. Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

        All hail the Constitution…if we can only just find the darn thing!

      • Jim S

        Well FireMall, you don’t have to drive 350 miles to Willie’s Place at Carl’s Corners anymore. It doesn’t exist anymore. It is now a Pilot Truck Stop.

      • http://personalliberty.com Sheldon

        I am not sure the impact of GMO white wheat and GMO Canola has on the consumer. The GMO white wheat is mixed with regular white wheat and sold to commercial processors. The GMO Canola is the only canola that I know of on the market. Canola/Rape oil was originally used for commercial oil and has been changed to decrease the amount of Erucic Acid for which it may not be healthy to consume very much. I do not know of any research on the effects of GMO products on the food supply.

        • Harry

          Sheldon, Please refer to the February Newsletter #16 produced by National Health Federation, http://www.thenhf.com. This organization is one of a short few who are at the forefront of GMO information and science. Also, if at all interested, very interesting information regarding Codex Alimentarius which more Americans need to study about. Dangerous stuff for those who are health conscious. Sadly, most replies on this forum seem to center around the messenger rather then the message. People need to become aware of our food and water supplies and the way they are being corrupted.

        Well FireMall, you don’t have to drive 350 miles to Willie’s Place at Carl’s Corners anymore. It doesn’t exist anymore. It is now a Pilot Truck Stop.

        Jim S : I heard Willie’s Place was done. Also, I heard Willie’s Roadhouse satelite radio is now being broadcast from a studio in Chicago raises even more suspicions about Willie being trumpeted as the Farmer’s friend. Sorry, but there is a tad to much of Willie on the wrong side of the fence for me to totally support what Willie is being exalted for as far as Helping Farmers survive the Socialist takeovers of the Food production industries.

        What I can’t understand is why so many think Willie is helping the farm issue by being Obama’s spokesperson.& or confidant..
        Much like Merle Haggard Toby Kieth, Brad Pasley, Carrie Underwood, etc. who have been frequenting the White House haven’t came out publicly against Obama’s destruction of Gibson Guitar corp.” also gives me a legitimate cause to question wth is going on in the Country music industry.
        It’s pretty well known that Obama is the epitome of a Socialist pundant, so would someone explain how Willie’s & other country singers relationship with the Obama admin is helping keep farming as Free Enterprise when Farming has “Not” been a Free Enterprise industry since the early 70′s. ??

        As I said earlier, I think Willie is being duped by the Progressive / Socialist networks., & Or, Considering Willie was First in creating the First Texas based Retail Bio-Diesel outlets in Carl’s Corner and Amarillo and likely received Government Green tax dollars to start his Bio Diesel businesses , that by the way , Failed Miserably , because the Bio Diesel contaminated the Trucker”s fuel systems with vegetable oil residue thus costing the truckers thousands of dollars to repair the damage from said Bio Diesel.
        The latter most likely applies to Willie’s situation thus , the reason I am a tad down on Willie for being in the Progressive’s clutches, thus trusting the outward appearance of Willie’s plan is difficult at the least..

        Dear FireMall:
        First, you need to get your facts straight. Most of what you say here is sheer bunk. May I suggest you educate yourself before you make these unfounded statements. You can start first by going here: http://www.farmaid.org/site/c.qlI5IhNVJsE/b.4725373/ : This letter will debunk the statement you made about Willies efforts on behalf of Farm Aid, and your claim of being a participant since the (“70′s) Then may I suggest that you go to Wikipedia and do some research on Willie. Don’t be afraid to click on the hyperlinks to do some crossreferencing. You should only wish your brain is as “fried” as his.

        • FireMall

          Ok there r.p. . If you reread my original post about Willie , you’ll see I was fully supportive & Proud of ol Willie back in the 70′s when Gov was on it’s rail to destroying all family farms.
          It even enraged me when the IRS destroyed Ol Willies fortune. Likely as a payback for being exactly what the Gov considers most all Americans. A threat & hindrance to the Agenda.

          In short , all I’m actually saying is Old Willie is going for & hanging with the wrong people. He ,as well as All Americans should be going for the Juggler Vein / NWO pundants in DC. which means all but a dozen or so every Congress members on both sides of the isle and any other elected Socialist in all Dot “O”‘s Gov offices & agencies. .
          Get rid of the Top dogs from the get go is our only hope. Monsanto will be done as soon as the Top Dogs are treated like the cattle chasing varmints they are.
          I reckon I best not say what happened to cattle chasing dog’s when the dog got after a neighbor’s livestock or chickens.

          I admit to my knee jerk reaction about Willie & the farm issue. I just have a gut feeling Monsanto is untouchable and the gov & Monsanto Corp are wholly in bed with each other. Thus my op about “who” should be called down for violating America’s guaranteed rights as well our God given rights to be free people..
          Make no mistake about where I stand, It’s with all the American & World’s people who are worried sh##less about what kind of nation & world We and our kids & Grandkids will be living in real soon if the March to a Socialized World is not stopped. .

        rp,
        i may not be as “smart” as that good ole boy, Willie, but one thing I CAN say. I have never placed all my money in the hand of someone else, had him run off with part of it while not paying my taxes and have the giverment come in and take everything I own!!! GEE, i guess in some ways, I AM a little bit smarter than Willie, huh?

        r.p. – First , Sorry I haven’t replied until today. I’ve Been too Busy trying to stay ahead of the wolves.

        Second-
        -While I could possibly see & even actually Respect what Willie was trying to accomplish with the Letter to the Big “O” / Zero.
        Surely you and others would not actually believe Obama will in a million years Alter, Amend & or in any way Change the Socialist Course Obama is running down the American Patriot’s throats.
        Willie’s articulate & factual letter , shows a strong sense of Diplomacy , did not and Will not garner any level of respect and acknowledgement from the Socialist Obama camp.
        Considering there isn’t any response letter from the “O” camp posted with Willie’s letter and the fact that “If” there was a response from Obama , it would most likely be nothing but a letter filled with patronizing LIES meant solely to distract from & , delay attention to the inevitable results of U.N. puppet Obama’s agenda.
        Obama Obviously hasn’t noticed God’s warnings / signs of the times , about Obama being the worst medicine for America’s ill’s since Castor Oil proves my point about Willie Wishing in an empty well. In simple words, Willie celebrity status Ain’t A gonna sway Obama or Obama’s boss’s plan.
        The real question here ,imo, would be , Does Monsanto run the show or do the New World Order people run Monsanto. The later is without question , spot on.
        Thus proving my assertions that Willie & or Any & all others that waste their precious time & Trust thinking Obama is on the side of “We The People” are what Stalin refers to as Useful Idiots.
        I don’t know if Old Willie votes or not , however, I sadly suspect , if Willie votes, he may have been hearing & believing Obama’s empty , misleading promises , & voted for the Masquerading Messiah, Obama.
        I have a strong tendency to Trust a person’s words before watching people’s actions.
        Someone here mentioned Willie’s account getting the IRS after old Willie because Willie Trusted his accountant to be honest.
        To substantiate my claims that Willie is Too dammed Nice & Trusting to the Wrong sort of people. I.E. his accountant ,Obama etc..
        Willie’s first partner and CEO of Willie’s Bio Diesel Fuel corp “Also” ran off with $50+ million of Willies cash.
        Basically, What I’m saying is, If Willie was Hoping Obama would hear & even act on what Willie is saying about contaminated food supply is an admirable, Willie actually Trusting Obama to listen & or change course is entirely a different deal.& I might add , An Entirely Deadly Deal, As planned, via the NWO pundants.

      • r.p.

        My first reply is to FireMall’s reply:
        Yes I read both of your previous posts twice before I made the first posting in response. I stand by what I previously said and may I add. If you ever had a business, you might understand why Willie is “incorporated. As the laws and tax breaks and group insurance breaks are written on behalf of corporations. That doesn’t make him complicit with neither corporations or government cronyism. It’s just a matter of survival and trying to retain his hard earned fortune. Claiming he’s part of the 1% just makes you a petty and uninformed citizen. As is accepting an invitation to perform at the W.H. does not intend party affiliation, or an endorsement of a political platform, it was an honor he respectfully accepted. As far as what was presented in the article above: He was RIGHT ON TARGET, which is not bad for an 80 year old person, pot smoker or not. How many 80 year olds do you know that still have their wits about them? Hell, I’m in my 60’s and it’s getting tougher for me. The only thing that disappointed me was his failure to mention the deadly GMO’s involvement in this corporatist monopoly, which I believe is the final assault on not only the farmers but all Americans. I would like to see him pen a new song about our franken-government, franken-fish, and franken-corn, and franken-beans, -beets, -tomatoes, -potatoes as the list is growing without regulations. I hope you take the time to check the link I previously posted along with a visit to Wikipedia. You don’t have to demand that I ‘cite my sources’ as all you have to do is search one or two words on any search engine, on any topic, and you will get more than you bargained for. I know I sometimes come off as condescending, that’s just one of my many faults. Please understand I am not trying to belittle you, words don’t always come out the right way for me. I hope your skin is thicker than a franken-tomato.
        Live Long & Perspire: r.p.

        My last reply is to Joe H:
        I don’t ever recall making any posting to you ever. Suffice to say, I don’t think I ever posted anything in reference to your intelligence, so I’m not quite sure where you are coming from. Judging from your statement though, I can say that you know nearly nothing or nothing at all about Willie except maybe heresy, not based on facts. And I might concur that you never had enough money to put it all into anyone’s hands except for maybe your wife’s when making a beer run for you. As for you last sentence in your statement. Are you expecting me to agree with you that you are smarter than Willie? IT AIN’T GONNA HAPPEN!! In my opinion you are just “On The Throne Again, Makin Music From Your Other End.”. If the tune escapes you [pun intended], it was composed by a legendary “Outlaw” W.H.N.
        Live Long & Perspire: r.p.

        • FireMall

          @ — r.p. ————–

          Ok , I’ll start by apologizing to any who read my post about Ol Willie being a covert Socialist. That was a dumb thing to say in the absence of evidence.
          My cop out would be that anytime I hear about an individual meeting with Obama I instantly see RED , As In Red China & Soviet Russia.& among other shades of the same colors..
          There is also another Letter.
          This letter was written in 1976 by n actual sitting Congress member during the intentional Bankrupting / Gov takeover of the now long gone family Farmers under the false flag of Saving family farms. This letter from the senator [can't recall the name] describes in detail & step by step how the CFR , Trilateral Commission / U.N New World Order conglomeration was setting the stage for Exactly what “We The People” of just a tad more perception than a pizzant are seeing come to pass today.
          The congressman perfectly detailed how the Illuminati would first take total control of the energy industries, World’s food supply, then infiltrate Gov in a way that will insure the Agenda going forward.
          The only miscalculation the Senator stated was the time frame as to When the “agenda /NWO” would be totally implemented. He said 1984 +/- was the original time frame for the NWO to be fully in charge. The Senator was obviously a Christian because he correlated the NWO gig with Biblical Prophecy. Obviously the NWO pundants have had several years of unexpected set backs. Until the day Obama was elected I had pinned my hopes on many more years of delayed Agenda phases.
          .
          .
          I see & agree with your op as more in line with what Willie is trying to do by writing a letter to the sorry-est POS POTUS in the history of Mankind.
          My reaction was a knee jerk reaction due to many people I used to respect , jumping on the Obama wagon to America’s last days.

          Anyway, Misspeak or Misinterpreted speech , there is One thing I believe “We The True Patriots” would agree on in the Bigger Picture of America’s future.
          “WE” are on the same side in this discussion regardless of which way “We” handle debate the issue as Individuals in / of the discussion.

          So: What the Heck are “WE” going to have to do to come together as a collective Majority to halt the Destruction of America & ” Her” People ???

          IMO; I can’t see any Diplomatic solutions to what Our so called Leaders are up to, so, ” The Duck may Have to Get Ugly before it can Dream of being Pretty..

          Our Leaders are so Drunk on their Power that they have become the billgerant Drunks at the local pub and there is more often than not , in this case, when there is only one sure fire solution to stop the Drunks from starting more fights. I.E. Blindside & B-Slap the BS out of them and run em out of the pub / Office.
          Talking sense to Drunken idiots, only makes punching bags out of the ones with common sense solutions. Sound Familiar ???

        • FireMall

          r.p. Btw;

          Some here, will likely have a very different op about me agreeing with you about Ron Paul.

          Paul has been demonized by both parties . So imo, this makes Paul the best shot America has to survive.
          I see nothing in the Other 3 candidates that gives me anything but political Heartburn.
          Seems to me that Paul is the only candidate that hasn’t flip flopped for votes.
          If Paul is , at some point , guided to change his position about any issue, I have no doubt that he will base his changes of opinion, / leadership, solely for the “Real” Greater Good of “We The People” and “Our” nation as “We’ remember her & Pray she is brought Back into America’s Founding principles..
          Seems many haven’t noticed or researched Mitt’s, Rick’s Newts records and how their leadership /.actions have” Not ” been guided by the Constitution
          I would hope that all American’s are aware that , If Congress is adhering to it’s well versed Duty, the President has very little to do with America’s ill’s .
          Bottom line, I blame Congress for Not reining in Obama’s power and Allowing the executive Branch to render Congress useless. This would include the Unconstitutional Power every Congress has given all previous President over the last 50 -60 years.

      • r.p.

        Dear FireMall:
        Didn’t see your last post untill after I made my reply. In many ways I agree with you but you should understand. I don’t think Willie is trying to sway “O” at all. I think what he is trying to do is make it known publicly that something stinks in D.C. What better way than a letter to the President. The public needs to be informed and shook awake. I think that is what Willie is trying to do, as there are millions of Americans who will pay attention to him. By the way; Ron Paul has been giving us the same message for over 30 years.

      A food revolution is what is needed.Take back our corn and our seeds,

      The next thing would take back our energy and use our oil to it’s fullest by not wasting the lost energy that we could collect from all the cars moving down the highway. We could have our cars and be an example to the rest of the world how to grow and conserve.

      The next would be to teach everyone how to relax and be nurturing because with the technology we have and if we created less waste we will all have more free time.
      No more plastic crap and poison for Walmart.
      People need to just stop buying the corporate mantra that Americans will not do the job.
      Corporate slavery is still alive.

        By your short sighted statement , I have to assume, your also a Vegetarian, along with being a Liberal / Useful Idiot.
        FYI; There are very few of the ethanol plants that good old Dot Gov have built with your’s & my tax dollars that are “not” shut down & under bankruptcy along with actually being investigated for Fraud.
        If field corn is for cattle , why have corn products in the grocery stores doubled in 2 years ?
        Now; Why has beef prices gone past the price of purchasing for the average family when, as you claim People don’t eat field corn.??
        FYI; All corn comes from a field. Not like “Some animal rights folks who actually think” Beef comes solely from the grocery store , so , being mean to the cattle and killing them for food , instead of buying beef from the grocery store and saving the “Other” cows from being massacred.a a processing plant should be a law…
        Why have fuel prices tripled in 3 years ? Hint Ethanol Subsides in part.
        Why do so many people fall for this BS ethanol gimmick ?
        BTW; Ethanol laced gasoline is more harmful to the environment And Humans than straight petro based gasoline. So there goes the Greenie’s claims of saving the planet.
        I am in the automotive service business and I assure you the exhaust from ethanol fuel “Will” make a person twice as sick with fewer inhaled breaths vs. straight petro based fuel.

      • ChristyK

        Adding ethanol to fuel is rough on engines. It also causes the fuel to go bad quickly. Don’t let an engine go unused that has ethanol fuel in it. The fuel will turn to a gel and cost you an arm and a leg to fix. Fuel didn’t used to go bad nearly as quickly before ethanol.

        Also, it takes more energy to make ethanol than the ethanol produces so it will never work without subsidies and does nothing to “save” the environment.

      • Joe H

        firemall,
        yup, ate a lot of fieldcorn myself!!! Kinda like it, too!! Wonder what he thinks cornflakes are made of?? sure as hell isn’t sweetcorn! Although, with the price of them lately, you’ld think they WERE!! Gee, there’s corn bread mix, corn coating mix for fish, all kinds of cereals with corn in them, gritts, corn pasta, corn chowder, tortillas, ALL MADE FROM FIELD CORN!!!

      A food revolution is what is needed.Take back our corn and our seeds,

      The next thing would take back our energy and use our oil to it’s fullest by not wasting the lost energy that we could collect from all the cars moving down the highway. We could have our cars and be an example to the rest of the world how to grow and conserve.

      The next would be to teach everyone how to relax and be nurturing because with the technology we have and if we created less waste we will all have more free time.

    It all started with the feds some 50 years ago. All the rules and regulations were to “help the small farmer”. Only the big farms could fill out all the paperwork and suck up to big brother. Check out this month Whistle Blower magazine. Devoted to food fraud and all the garbage the feds have forced us to eat. Monsanto is just sucking up to the feds and are not the real culprits in this mess.

      50 years ago the Democratic party the suppossed party of the little guy which they aren’t. Did what they always do and blame the Republicans and then dump on the little guy because they listen to the liberal news rather then read the actual bill. The Republicans should be called the Republicowards because they cave and let the dorks get away with this stuff. If you have not read Obamacare, then you don’t know how bad they have screwed you yet. It is the worst piece of legislation in the history of our country, and you are losing a lot of freedom and liberty and giving it to the government to tell you what you can or cannot do.

      • K

        So, you would rather have a military with the power to silently arrest and detain you for an indefinite period without trial or even real probable cause? Although the health care legislation is not my favorite piece of law from our government, I hardly think it’s worse than the NDAA.

        You’re insane if you think it’s worse for the gov, in a misguided attempt, to force people to be able to afford the screwed up healthcare system so they might at least have access to the care they couldn’t afford before, than to summarily erase your freedom because they think you’ve done something wrong and don’t have to prove it.

    Willie has fried his brains with POT. The problem of the family farmer can be placed right at the feet of the Federal Government just as can the problems with education, loss of manufacturing,the housing crisis, the rampant foreclosures. The USDA, EPA, and other regualtory agencies along with, high income, estate and property taxes are causing the biggest problems, subsidizing farmers for not grownig food, subsidizing milk and these other “subsidies” just add to the incentive for hedge funds and corporate farmers to come in with the large bucks to buy out these family farmers and drive up the cost of land all to take advantage of the incentives.
    Look at the Obama Administration squandering our taxes and borrowing, driving us all into debt, so he can sudidize his contributers at the expense of the taxpayer, you and me. Wake up and look further than the end of your noses,. Don’t look at these entertainment types and follow mindlessly like you did with Obama. If you voted for Obama and the democrats progressive agenda, ultimately YOU are going to suffer because they will take every one of your freedoms until you are their serf, and they are YOUR Lords and Obama is your king.

    thats the trouble with government control farmers use to be able to save seed from there crops to replant the next season but you do it now you can’t sell or use the grain to feed your cattle or self if caught you get fined and all crops destrored now you have there high price seed ever year in order to sell feed your cattle or sealf witch is rong

    • Beth

      The seeds Monsanto produces can not be kept from one growth to foster the next seasons planting simply because they are not viable. They have been gentically altered so that seeds produced will not grow the following year and if they do they will not produce the veggie or fruit in any great numbers on the plant. Only Heirloom seeds can be harvested from one crop to the next.

    • Ben

      So, what’s the problem? Cattle was designed to eat grass! Let Monsanto keep their seed.

  • Rennie

    What we need is an old pothead hippie suggesting the Robert Mugabe method of food production, well it didn’t work so well in Zimbawee as I recall, and little better in Stalin’s Soviet Union. If we are not careful all the agriculture in the USA will be under the jurisdiction of Monsanto and the government. Farmers and farming have been under attack by the progressives for generations, sneering and smearing the farmer as a backwards knuckle dragging gun toting lunatic, all the while they stuff their faces with the food the farmer barely profits enough producing in order to stay in production. We need an active grange again, that speaks for everyone from the owners of backyard garden plots to thousand acres farms. Agenda 21 is the enemy of freedom and rural peoples all over this planet.

  • Catherine McKenna

    From theobamafile.com, link http://theobamafile.websitetoolbox.com/post/Obamas-giveaway-of-oilrich-islands-to-Russia-5713405

    Joe Miller sounds alarm over deal to put land in hands of Putin’s Kremlin.

    The Obama administration, despite the nation’s economic woes, effectively killed the job-producing Keystone Pipeline last month. The Arab Spring is turning the oil production of Libya and other Arab nations over to the Muslim Brotherhood. Iraq is distancing itself from the U.S. And everyone recognizes that Iran, whose crude supplies are critical to the European economy, will do anything it can to frustrate America’s strategic interests. In the face of all of this, Obama insists on cutting back U.S. oil potential with outrageous restrictions.

    Part of Obama’s apparent war against U.S. energy independence includes a foreign-aid program that directly threatens my state’s sovereign territory. Obama’s State Department is giving away seven strategic, resource-laden Alaskan islands to the Russians. Yes, to the Putin regime in the Kremlin.

    The seven endangered islands in the Arctic Ocean and Bering Sea include one the size of Rhode Island and Delaware combined. The Russians are also to get the tens of thousands of square miles of oil-rich seabeds surrounding the islands. The Department of Interior estimates billions of barrels of oil are at stake.

    The State Department has undertaken the giveaway in the guise of a maritime boundary agreement between Alaska and Siberia. Astoundingly, our federal government itself drew the line to put these seven Alaskan islands on the Russian side. But as an executive agreement, it could be reversed with the stroke of a pen by Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton.

    The agreement was negotiated in total secrecy. The state of Alaska was not allowed to participate in the negotiations, nor was the public given any opportunity for comment. This is despite the fact the Alaska Legislature has passed resolutions of opposition — but the State Department doesn’t seem to care.

    The imperiled Arctic Ocean islands include Wrangell, Bennett, Jeannette and Henrietta. Wrangell become American in 1881 with the landing of the U.S. Revenue Marine ship Thomas Corwin. The landing party included the famed naturalist John Muir. It is 3,000 square miles in size.

    Northwest of Wrangell are the DeLong Islands, named for George Washington DeLong, the captain of USS Jeannette. Also in 1881, he discovered and claimed these three islands for the United States. He named them for the voyage co-sponsor, New York City newspaper publisher James Gordon Bennett. The ship’s crew received a hero’s welcome back in Washington, and Congress awarded them gold medals.

    In the Bering Sea at the far west end of the Aleutian chain are Copper Island, Sea Lion Rock and Sea Otter Rock. They were ceded to the U.S. in Seward’s 1867 treaty with Russia.

    Now is the time for the Obama administration to stand up for U.S. and Alaskan rights and invaluable resources. The State Department’s maritime agreement is a loser — it gives us nothing in return for giving up Alaska’s sovereign territory and invaluable resources. We won the Cold War and should start acting like it.

    The Obama administration must stop the giveaway immediately.

    This is just the tip of the iceberg to come our way.Genetically modified salmon are about to hit the markey without any warning labels at all to inform the public.The next generation of the American public may average eight feet tall and have gills.I just saw Willie in concert a few months ago and he is as sharp as a tack.He was to perform for an hour and a half but played and sang for over two hours,Great show, excellant guitar picking and singing..Perhaps everyone should dabble in the weed a bit.May at least cure some of the anger here but stay away from the snacks that contain Monsanto corn.They may cause you harm.

      • r.p.

        Yes, but some will or already have escaped and their genes will go into the general population. Just like the seeds, the contamination will be uncontrolable. See what happened to the wild rice in India, search “Vandana Shiva”. The technology used for both plants and animals are similar but the frightnening thing is that they are splicing plant with animal genes. Something that never happens in nature. Think Mabey “I Am Legend”,”The Omega Man”. Worse case!

  • Ben

    The answer is to vote with your wallet. Only buy produce from local organic farmers and get your beef, chicken, dairy etc. from the same. Freeze/can your food for the winter. That’s what people did for many years and it still works. Change your paradigm from convenience to being frugal. You’ll end up healthier and have more money in the long run. New technologies and convenience aren’t always the best thing for us.

  • Patriot Diva

    This is one thing I agree with Willie about. Monsanto, ConAgra, etc… have totally messed up the food supply. Their genetically modified foods (GMO’s) are causing illness. It’s being done by design, not by accident!

    • FreedomFighter

      The rabiit hole is deep:

      The Preamble and Chapter 28 discuss how Agenda 21 should be implemented at a local level. The United Nations purposely recommends avoiding the term Agenda 21 and suggests a cleverly named alternative: “smart growth.” The United Nations Millennium Papers – Issue 2 (page 5) says this of Agenda 21 and smart growth:

      Participating in a UN-advocated planning process would very likely bring out many of the conspiracy-fixated groups and individuals in our society such as the National Rifle Association, citizen militias and some members of Congress. This segment of our society who fear ‘one-world government’ and a UN invasion of the United States through which our individual freedom would be stripped away would actively work to defeat any elected official who joined ‘the conspiracy’ by undertaking LA21. So, we call our process something else, such as comprehensive planning, growth management, or smart growth [emphasis added].

      Undoubtedly, residents of any town, county, or city in the United States that treasure their freedom, liberty, and property rights couldn’t care less whether it’s called Agenda 21 or smart growth.

    I have allways been on the farmer’s side.Thank you Willie,you are absolutely right.
    George H. Busch can go straight to hell, for what he started in this beautiful country of ours. I really dispise this man.

    • FireMall

      Linda: I agree to a point about G H Bush being cullable in the farm subsidies program. Which is no more than a Gov control vehicle for the sole purpose of Controlling the Global food supply.
      As i have been saying for years “There is more to the Global Food Control agenda and it has not one thing to do with the 2 political parties.
      Both parties are so deep into the Agenda that it cannot be deemed a R Or D issue.
      Please consider Not falling for the Distracting Political blame game.
      The DC pundants of the New World order are pulling the wool over both political party supporters , Repug-less-nuts as well as the Obvious Dem side. .As in , . “We The Duped & intentionally Divided Pubic” ,
      Congress and the Executive branch are somewhat accountable for Promoting control of the food supply , However, One needs to understand where the Agenda originates from to actually understand that the U.S. government / leaders , while being a major player in said control agenda , they are “NOT” the ones in charge of the agenda they get their marching orders from a source that many still deny as being the leaders of the gig. .
      These leaders have not been and never have been Elected by “We The American People”
      The sole people mainly responsible for Global Food Control are the U.N. Illuminati.
      Willie might have a dog in the hunt but , he as well as all People of the entire globe will be hard pressed to halt the Global march to a Global Community as Obama has often mentioned. Yes, G H. Bush was the first POTUS to publicly mention a New World order , However this started long before any Bush family member was even potty trained , so insinuating this is a Republican issue is way off the mark when it is well known that the Socialist Dems are the original instigators / U.N. pundants.of promoting a Global One world government. IMO; It has only been in the last 20 or so years that the Repugs have covertly & deceitfully joined the U.N. Illuminati Agenda.

      On a side note: I might have been a tad tough on Old Willie , however, I still want to know what Willie and all the other Democrat Country folks talked about while hob knobing with Obama in the White house.;
      I believe this is a more than fair question which deserves a full & word for word honest answer. Then and only then can I be swayed to Trust what Willie claims When he is supposedly fighting against the Monsanto controlling monopoly type corps.. I truly believe there is a deeper issue hidden in the wood pile.

    Regrettably I see it this way. Think of a triangle. At the bottom of this triangle is Big Ag Big Food Big Food Manufacturing whatever you want to call it it amounts to the same thing. On the one side of the triangle you have Allopathic Medicine or Big Pharma (both are interchangeable). On the other side you have Big Insurance which I believe profits because their business comes from sick people created by the other two. The best part comes when you picture a circle surrounding this with a big eye in the inside of the triangle. Of course, this circle represents the government overlooking and encircling these three with its protection and encouragement.

    Thank you for listening. Willie is right God bless him! It’s getting harder and harder to get “real” food that hasn’t been doctored up especially when it is genetically engineered. This is the worst.

    In later posted an apology after r.p. caused me to somewhat understand a differing opinion as to Willie’s intentions.
    Kind of a “Hold thy Friends close & one;s enemies Closer” thing . At least that is what I hope Willie is doing by conversing with Obama.

    Next : I see where Obama had another impromptu White house music event with Many Blues singers, BB King, etc.
    So, I now see how Obama is operating and Duping the masses.
    Not to many folks / celebrities are going to turn down an invitation from the White House events / Pr office.
    Other than a majority of Nascar drivers turning Obama’s invite down , I’d guess the Invitation / Propaganda gig is running @ around a 80 90% success rate on RSVPs.

    As a poster by the name of ” r.p.” explained , Willie is at least standing up to the established Socialistic farm controls & Monsanto’s / Dot Gov’s disgusting control tactics & the diplomacy Willie offered Obama in his letter , at first thought , seemed to me , a waste of Diplomacy & Postage.
    Imo, Other than the letter being Publicized for all to read, I still say that any consideration of Willie’s letter & concerns fell on Obama’s deaf & Socialist ears, However , Willies letter did hit the public’s attention. I’m fairly certain that it was Not the Obama camp who publicized the letter. Obviously. So I agree with the Willie supporters and can Honestly ask Willie to forgive my knee jerk reaction to Willie having anything whatsoever to do with Obama.

    Now: back to the point I would like to relay about Obama’s constant Celeb party gigs in the White House..
    These Celebs from all fields of notoriety, Country music, Rock Blues & even Punk rock / rap, Nascar, & Holly Wood in particular have been invited for , naturally, the sole purpose , of Propaganda to Promote Obama’s / U.N. One World Gov Agenda , aka, . NWO .

    All these Celebrities have many, if not Millions of die hard fans.
    These fans are often what I call groupies . And , imo, Groupies tend to want to mirror their Idol’s characteristics , Looks and actions/ opinions.
    Can others see where I’m headed with this OP ??

    Obama is using these Celeb parties for the sole purpose of gaining support from the Groupies that will do as their Idols do.
    These Celebrities , by simply attending the gals White House events is all groupies need to see & hear to assume that “if their Celeb Idols appear to Like Obama , The Celeb worshipers will follow suit and Vote for Obama in 2012.
    Sad part, If the Idol worshipers fall for Obama’s sneaky vote garnering tactics and Obama is re elected, they will likely see how following the Pied Piper Celebs Will, officially label the groupies as “Useful Idiots” .

    Lastly: “Question” — What Fate did Stalin’s , Hitler’s / historical Dictator’s , Useful Idiots meet after their Usefulness was of no value after they helped the Marxist of the past gain total control of the masses ??

    Folks, Please consider Relating Obama’s every move in an Historical sense and Stop the Useful Idiot Agenda ot America’s Destruction.

    BTW; Without fail , Come Nov,2012———————————————————————————– Fire-M-All ————————————–

    Gmo Crops have caused sterility in woman & have caused people to become sick. Gmo crops also have built in pesticides in them. Organic farmers have lost a lot of money, Because gmo crops have blown into their fields. In India, A 1,000 farmers have committed suicide, Because they had purchased mansanto seeds & lost everything..I agree with Willie. Stop Mansanto & other gmo crops. let’s not mess with Mother Nature. The bee’s are dieing a a rapid rate, all over the World :>(
