@jamison20000e Would you please stop posting like a spam bot? is it really necessary to post 3 or 4 in a row?

I don't know if you have any experience with farming. But around here a small farmer farms around 200 acres, and a large farmer farms several thousand. What do they grow? Corn, Soybeans and sometimes wheat. Very few speciality crops around here. That's part of the problem, look at Ireland, what happened when the potato failed?

Something else. They claim that we need gmo technology to feed an overpopulated world...Some problems with that. Corn for example, A LOT of it goes for ethanol: an industry that can't even support itself. And a lot of it goes for cows: an animal that is not designed to efficiently use grain(watch one eat), they can thrive completely on grass. Go figure.

Feed the world stuff is a propaganda that is largely pushed by gmo patent owners. There is plenty of place to grow food, even for a population that is multiplying.

I think it's larger than that. There are certain "anti-social", "oppositional personalities", that have learned to reflexively hate anything and everything that is asserted by the mass media as "good" or "deserving of sympathy", etc... Name a minority group, or "protected class", and I hate them. I never had an opinion, or a feeling, about these groups before the mass media decided that I was required, mandated to think "X" about them, or feel "Y" about them, but now that I have the mass media forcing me to comply with their world view, and their system of values, I hate them. IMO, this system of governance, and method of mind control, is non-sustainable and civil war is inevitable. It's a question of when, and not if.
