A Short Posting, A Serious Thought

Something quick, something simple:

What happens when the United States of America is no longer able to export food?

Seriously, we import so much other stuff (whether directly as in Wal-Mart through China) or through subterfuge (as in our “american” cars being made in Mexico). And now we’re getting to the point where all the corn we’re using is going towards ethanol instead of feed or fuel.

What happens when we no longer can grow all the food we need, or choose not to (just as the American Elite seem to have chosen not to make anything with or by americans)?

  1. They starve? Time to tell any friends who can afford it, to get out of the suburbs if at all possible and move to a little bit of land and place where bicycle can get them around.

    Even here organic farmers and small time ones they are doing everything they can to drum them out business, like a small dairy farmer I know where they wanted a huge amount of money per animal to “chip them”. Keep up on some of these developments they are disturbing.


    The Bible warns of world-wide famine in the last days, looks like everything is being set up to make that happen.

  2. Scarier is what could happen if there was a food shortage, and we were obligated by commodity contracts to continue exporting food. That’s what happened in the Irish Potato Famine, which killed a million people in a very small country. It’s not a pretty picture, and it’s one I worry about every day.
