Because All Food Is Political

Yes, you heard me right. Every piece of food you put in your mouth had be decided upon by politicians who want to control every aspect of the global economy.

With the surge in world prices in food crops, it is time to reevaluate going back to subsistence farming.

From the Associated Press:

What's rare is that the spikes are hitting all major foods in most countries at once. Food prices rose 4 percent in the U.S. last year, the highest rise since 1990, and are expected to climb as much again this year, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

As of December, 37 countries faced food crises, and 20 had imposed some sort of food-price controls.

For many, it's a disaster. The U.N.'s World Food Program says it's facing a $500 million shortfall in funding this year to feed 89 million needy people. On Monday, it appealed to donor countries to step up contributions, saying its efforts otherwise have to be scaled back.

It is a common occurrence to see riots in the developing world over food shortages, but with the spike in gas at the pumps and wheat shares, Westerners are now going nuts. Although the experts say the prices will level, the reality here is that food eaten by most of the world is controlled by a very small few, and they are making decisions, mostly around international trade policies, that are starting to show their true colors and piss off some folks. As our selection of food starts to dwindling due to environmental and man made circumstances, thanks to globalization, food prices will only continue to climb.

Was it coincidentally that 60 Minutes last Sunday featured a segment on this scientist creating his own version of Noah's Arc, by collecting every seed for every plant in the world and storing them in a underground bunker in the North Pole? He says he is doing it just in case Armageddon happens, we can start all over again from scratch.

Armageddon is near, RUN!
