Mother Nature is the original outsourcer. Hurricanes, tornadoes, heat waves, snowstorms, all came from OUTside the USA.
Now the more I think about it the more I realize that this “Outsourcing” thing is really is not something new. Mother Nature is the original. Hurricanes, tornadoes, heat waves, snowstorms… a very good percent of them come from outside the US … and vice-versa, she’s playing both sides of the globe. However, who does her product effects the most; I’d have to say the farmers. We can weather the storm and come out dry. But the farmers every year have to cross their fingers; throw some seeds down and then hope and pray they can make ends meet. In the 70’s we had Farm-aid, a Band-Aid to help American farmers stay in their homes and get folks to realize that anything you buy or eat should be deep rooted, bought and grow in the USA. Farm-aid is still growing strong. But there seems to be a weed growing steadily across the country, – the farm bill. It’s supposed to be, amongst other things a safety net. But like most anything from Washington it’s filled with byproducts. Seems to me that that we should treat our farmers, the ones that literally helped grow this country and keep our dinner tables stocked with a little more respect.
I am a firm believer that we should help put food on poor folk’s tables; however, maybe the poor we feed first are the small farmers.
I have a plan:
I say we go back to the basics like the bill was in the 30s – to help the farmers grow. And if folks need help getting food on their tables that can be part of the bill, but not most of it.
Let’s help families eat the farm food, not the fast food. And if you’re caught eating your desert first we just won’t pay for that.
By the way … Change that name … No one, especially farmers, want to be handed something called a bill. Call it a thank you gift…
