You crack me up.

Millions of people do starve because of our industrial food system... you can deny it, but it just means you're in denial.

I went to a Whole Foods in St. Louis about 2 1/2 years ago.

Since then, its been (and will remain) and "Ace Midnight"-free zone, as well.


I was done with them when they took their stand on duck fois gras and felt it was appropriate to tell the 3 duck farms in this country they would not sell their product if they sold duck fois gras to anyone else.

I love Whole Foods and since they are a private business I have no problem if one of them wants to prohibit guns on its property.

Don't care I'll still shop at Whole Foods because:

They have the best local produce, supporting American small farmers.

They pay their staff a living wage.

They have many items I can't find elsewhere

I can afford to shop here regularly

If it turns into a no-"spend" zone they will have only themselves to blame.

Comical. The whole organic myth is so incredible. Synthetic-organic fertilizers(made synthetically and outperform organic on environment- no NO3 leaching) are making bigger strides in nutrient delivery to plants. Couple that with natural temporary resistant gene elevators(not organic and not permanent gene modifier) that create higher nutrient amounts and longer shelf lives for plants, beef, chicken only save more lives across the planet. The highest nutrient values(never happens from manure based NO3 fertilizers) and genetics will save millions in the future, but the big C is being prevented to be cured not just by huge pharmaceuticals, but organic myths too.

So much disinformation floating through the public that has just enough knowledge to be dangerous.

Explain please. How does the "industrial food system" cause people to starve? Provide support also. TIA

And take your time I know you've got a lot of work to do on the sandy hook hoax!

Organics have absolutely nothing to do with the comment you quoted and responded to.

Yes it does...without the "industrial food complex" or whatever nonsense you call it over 1B people would not be alive on this planet today...Now why don't you explain your assertion(s)?

And I've called it the Industrial Food System.. don't have to dress it up with the 'complex or whatever nonsense'.

It's really not that difficult to understand.

A lot of prime farmland in third world countries are used for our benefit, while the people there are starving.

Mogray - if everyone had to feed themselves from small-scale owners like me, many of us would be starving. I'm certainly not going to claim that the current food system is perfect, and couldn't use improvement, but it is not as terrible as it can be made out to be by many in the movement.

That is not at all what I'm advocating.

Perhaps your point would receive more acceptance or consideration if it was fully elucidated.

Go back to Misery and take a look at the farms in your own damned state. How many people are starving in Misery? How many in Obama land? How many in America as a result of farming practices? How many people in China would be dead without "industrial farming practices" adopted for thier needs over the last four decades.

I'm in Missouri, don't have to go back to it.

I kind of hope you're drunk.

It's a world view issue, probably wouldn't matter how well it was explained.

We strip 3rd world countries of resources for our benefit. We turn starving nations lands into farms for our own use.. we rob 3rd world nations of their food so we can get obese and throw out the leftovers.

So you're under the impression the US is a net agricultural importer?

If that is your impression, it's terribly inaccurate.

If not, then your statement is inaccurate.

Outside of corn for ethanol, what agricultural trade characteristics are you using to make that assertion?

When given the option of being dead or committing a criminal activity, I chose to commit the criminal activity. I'll pack heat regardless of their sign or any EO the President issues.
