No! We are still asleep!
Too far! The American people are too far from their sources of food! Say what?
More of the production and processing of our food is moving not just to another state but other countries! Some of those on the other side of the world!
Kind of like when we began to buy foreign oil we have stopped gardening and are buying vegetables, meat and citrus from all over the world!
We bulldoze orchards in order to build five acre ranchettes! We steal water needed for irrigation in order to promote land speculation and development in areas where there isn't enough water to begin with!
The Obama administration, like the Bush and Clinton administrations is discouraging the production of food for our own people through excessive and oppressive regulation. Kind of like the offshore drilling ban? But this practice goes much farther back than that!
Silly, simple-minded dupes have passed on the idea that American ethanol production is causeing food shortages and the smart folks are benefiting!
I've been telling people this for years to grumblings of "Sit down and shut up!"
And now I see food prices rising steadily and more people stealing and panhandling!
Yeah, your favorite "fear monger" was right all along!
