FK – If we didn’t have ‘cheap food’ many would starve and have even worse health. Look at some of the pix from the not-so-good-ol-days. A lot of those people looked malnourished or ill. and they were the ones who could afford to buy a portrait.
A lot of this may go back to human transition to agriculture which allegedly happened only a few thousand years ago. Have our bodies evolved to deal with this diet yet? Do we want them to? I was surprised when I learned it’s only been a couple thousand years since some of us became lactose tolerant.
I grew up on a small farm and going to the redneck mecca and buying stuff trucked in from other places beats the hell out of hot days in the sun hoeing weeds.
I have no romantic illusions about that experience. Too bad many others don’t. But then my grandmother enjoyed gardening and many others do.
Our ancestors spent their time in and out of the shade, in forests or on savannahs, working, hunting, gathering in the cooler periods and resting betwixt and between. This is common sense.
I don’t trust the corporations any farther than I trust our evil governments. What they do to us needs to be laid at the feet of ‘we the people’ because the average dumbass isn’t doing his/her job in keeping them in line.
The evil ones are a small percentage of the population. The alleged ‘good’ sit on their asses waiting for the world to end allowing the bad to do their thing without retribution.
Gee, I wonder who set that system up?
What does ‘We the People’ actually mean?
It means we are responsible…
We have a representative republic, guaranteed to every state, not a democracy.
We have a Bill of Rights that acknowledges rights we are born with, not granted or created by any government.
We vote with the knowledge that voting is the most violent act anyone can participate in because voting is electing someone to hire someone to stick a government gun in our neighbors’ faces and force our version of reality on them at the threat of their very lives.
We stand ready to protect our Liberty and the Liberty of our neighbors, not destroy it, via any version of authoritarianism, of any age or place.
We are prepared with knowledge and force of arms to make war against and kill if necessary those who would destroy our Bill of Rights whether they represent domestic or foreign enemies.
We do not lie to ourselves, our families, our friends, our business associates, our descendants, our enemies, about these things and do not EVER tolerate those who would have us do so.
If the troops were fighting for our freedom they’d all be here.
