Tell Congress: Stop the TAFTA!

The Obama administration recently commenced (unconstitutionally, and thus illegally) negotiations with the European Union on the subject of a Trans-Atlantic Free Trade Agreement (TAFTA). Although it is being presented by Obama propaganda media as a win-win for the US and the EU, the fact is that it will be yet another act of unilateral disarmament […]

Illegal Immigrants: The Real Occupy Movement Taking Over America!

Illegal Immigrants: The Real Occupy Movement Taking Over America!

  There is an occupy movement bigger than Occupy Wall Street. This movement is  more dangerous to the American culture and society than a bunch of unwashed heathen pot-heads who want everything handed to them on a coke-lined mirror. These occupiers are occupying American jobs, educations, welfare, healthcare and public housing. These occupiers march in […]

White House Has ‘Peculiar’ Justification for Illegal Immigration

White House Has ‘Peculiar’ Justification for Illegal Immigration

Someone in the White House is channeling John C. Calhoun. Stephen Dinan, of the Washington Times, writes the White House has issued a report that claims, “…the strength and continuity of rural America is contingent on common–sense immigration reform.” In other words, the availability of your boutique tomatoes depends on amnesty for illegals. The Obama […]

Large American Pork Producer Sold to Chinese

Virginia-based pork producer Smithfield Foods (SFD.N) entered an agreement with China’s Shuanghui International for a $4.7 billion, all-cash buyout. Smithfield has been under pressure from it’s largest shareholder, Continental Grains, to break into multiple companies and increase its dividend. The meat producer opted to sell out to foreign interests. The deal will likely lead to […]

The Bugs are Back

The Bugs are Back

People in the Washington, DC area like to worry. Part of it’s because leftists are required to show “concern” about the darnedest things and part of it is because a large government workforce has to discover something to do or at least find a way to look busy. For example, the National Weather Service suffered […]

Rand Loves The Drones? Not Quite...

Rand Loves The Drones? Not Quite…

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul has learned another key lesson of the “age of sound bytes.” During an appearance on Neil Cavuto’s Fox Business Network show, Paul pointed out he didn’t mind using drones or any kind of technology against an “imminent threat,” whether it was a terrorist or “someone coming out of a liquor store […]

USDA wants meat origins on labels

USDA wants meat origins on labels

Ever think about where the cow was born and slaughtered when you were biting into a nice, juicy burger? If you’re like most people, probably not. But that might change if the U.S. Department of Agriculture gets its way. Taking “truth in advertising” to a whole new level, the USDA wants to include the location […]

Oh No! Possible Coffee Shortage!

Oh No! Possible Coffee Shortage!

Dateline Guatemala! President Molina-Preez ordered release of more than $14 Million to help coffee growers battle a fungus that is affecting 70 percent of their nation’s crop. The funds will help the 60,000 farmers spray pesticides in an attempt to halt the spread of coffee rust which kills plants. The rust has affected coffee plantations […]

Drones Would Have Aided Americans in Benghazi if Cows Were Involved

Drones Would Have Aided Americans in Benghazi if Cows Were Involved

  When four dying Americans in Benghazi needed fire-powered drones to take out Islamic militants firing mortars, those hovering drones controlled by Obama’s D.C. administration never fired on the enemy. Maybe the Americans inside the Benghazi Consulate should have kept cows at the Embassy. It’s obvious our spying government holds a deeper grudge against cow […]

Lady Tries to Buy iPads with Food Stamps

Lady Tries to Buy iPads with Food Stamps

Last month was busy so I missed the story about a woman who tried to buy an iPad with her Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program card (read Food Stamps). Not only did this woman try to buy the iPads but when her card was declined she went to another store to try again. (Let’s give her […]

Dodging a Bullet; Congress Works to Avert Milk Spike

Dodging a Bullet; Congress Works to Avert Milk Spike

It appears congress may find enough votes and keep the farm bill alive for another year. Apparently, the angst caused by the idea of $8 per gallon milk over the Christmas family table was enough to motivate bipartisan action within the agriculture committee of both the House and Senate. The current farm bill, passed in […]

Private Sector Ends Unwanted Alien Invasion

Private Sector Ends Unwanted Alien Invasion

Prince William County, VA is suffering the ill effects of another alien invasion and a collection of politicians is engaged in vigorous hand–wringing over possible solutions. No, this isn’t another rant about illegals clogging 7/11 parking lots. This time it’s alien plants clogging Quantico Creek. Recently Dumfries Mayor Jerry Foreman, Del. Mark Dudenhefer (R–2nd), Supervisor […]

VOODOO Food Economics

VOODOO Food Economics

The USDA, in trying to increase participation in the SNAP or food stamp program, claims that for every dollar transferred to beneficiaries a dollar and seventy-two cents in economic activity is generated. If we were to follow this mushy thinking to it’s logical conclusion, then if we all quit our jobs, closed our businesses and […]

Weak Senate Votes Down Minimal Food Stamp Cuts

Weak Senate Votes Down Minimal Food Stamp Cuts

Americans are speaking out demanding that the excessive spending be stopped. But is Congress hearing? Under the Obama administration the Food Stamp program (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) has skyrocketed with 44 million now receiving assistance. A proposed amendment by Senator Jeff Sessions giving a modest cut to the program was voted down by the Democratic […]

US and China sign Agriculture Strategic Plan

Bilateral cooperation in Food safety, food security and sustainable agriculture were the focus of this month’s agricultural symposium. “This symposium and plan are a product of a vision I share […]
