One wonders if the Secretary really thought that those who are stealing the checkoff money would get along with those protesting the theft of their money. Obviously, he doesn’t have a passion for fair-play or constructive change, just calm, peace and election to further political offices.
So, where are we now? NCBA continues to use the money taken at gunpoint and shares it with U. S. Farmers Alliance and others who work with them to build a global plantation and make independent family agriculture a part of the trash pile of history?
These folks have; (1) the power to plant their agents in key posts in our government, (2) the resources with which to buy members of congress, (3) the ability to bias farm media editorial perspectives and (4) the ability to dupe those who they are molesting. If folks come to understand this will they become incensed enough to do something? Can we hope to come together and focus on that in which we all say we believe and turn the corner before going over the cliff? I pray so!
