The End of Cheap Food

Page 3 of 3  


I'm a flexitarian who does buy meat and cook it occasionally, because my protein needs *are not* met by a fully vegetarian diet. And I really don't want to be a Prius <G>

If I could feel well with out meat, I'd still eat it anyway. I like the taste.
The Prius isn't the panacea it claims to be..C

Thank you, Ann, for sharing the video. I don't usually go to the links but did this time. It is certainly a reminder that we people all over the world are much the same and are all victims of our "leaders" and the words spread by those same leaders (and our media!). We only need to look within our own country to see the conflict in what we say and what we do. It's important that we not let our own unpleasant truths be forgotten. What some dictators have done is not that different from what was done in "settling and civilizing" our own country. It's always important to remember the history books are written by the winners and nothing written in those books ever justifies people hurting people.
While I detest our current administration on the federal level, I have learned that our current president is not the worst we have ever had. He is simply "more effective" to hurting our position worldwide than some past presidents because of a technical communication age. I often wonder where the terrorist cause would be if we had not invaded Iraq without U.N. sanction with all of the sympathy and support from the entire world after 9-11. I suspect it would not be as advanced as it is; my fear is that we have created more support for it than we have eliminated - how can anyone truly know.
For a chilling reality of presidents, read the lesser known facts about Andrew Jackson. His Trail of Tears march was only one of a truly horrible line of actions by him, yet he is "honored" on our $20 bill. I wonder how many Americans would like seeing his face so often if they realized his true character. I knew some of what he had done, but until recently, I didn't realize what a truly evil person he was. He makes this president look like a saint.
It's a downright shame that truly good people can't make it in politics at high levels. I'm talking truly good as in all the way through deep into their heart as well as their actions.
My tag line on my signature has been: "I can't change the world but I can make my little corner better." That is what most of us try to do, and it matters.

So what does this mean? It means don't use anything but the oil you have been using for generations. And who paid for creation of those statistics? The fossil fuel oil industry of course.
The important fact that is overlooked with those statistics is that it took a few million years to make one of the fuels and the energy to "produce" it is restricted to the cost of pumping it out of the ground and refinery. By the same logic we should all deduce that its much cheaper to siphon gasoline from our neighbors car than to get it at a gas station.

What it means is that you can shear a sheep many times but you can only skin it once. Petroleum and agriculture have been taken over by a few companies and we are about to get skinned. Baaaaaaaaa
