I had a visit, at my residence, from the USDA.Submitted by paulchri on Tue, 07/03/2012 - 23:38
The USDA came to my house a couple of weeks ago. I have a two and a half acre lot with cattle fencing and a garden out front. They wanted to know what I was growing and how much. They wanted to know how many large and small animals I had, and what kind they were.
I sat down, took a deep breath, and listened as she rattled off her spiel. She said that they needed this information for "educational" purposes. This information was going to go out to the universities and be used for studies.
After she exhausted herself, I was ready to reply in a calm fashion, and had my thoughts gathered. I explained to her that many of the university studies were used for political purposes, and were government funded. Also, that they are given to be done with a particular outcome in mind. I explained to her that she is helping a corrupt government to justify the tyranny that they are enacting on the citizens. I told her about the small farms that are invaded by Monsanto and put out of business via means of GMO patenting and lawsuits. I told her about the food co-ops that are being raided, and having their product destroyed as they get hauled of to jail and ultimately have no charges brought.
She replied, and said that she understood, but she was just doing her job. She added that she is a very conservative person.
