I'm threading until I get to negative spoons
1- EVERYONE -- candidates, their campaign teams, elected officials, the media, activists, scientists, regular.../1
The true American farm was ALWAYS a large scale agribusiness. Back then they just called them PLANTATIONS.
This whole single family running a farm is a fantasy created.../2
So claiming we need to end large-scale agriculture is fine. Let's end it...how exactly would that fucking work?
We gonna have the state confiscate corporate farms and then parcel out the land to...whom exactly?
We're not an agrarian society anymore. /4
I know my Black ass isn't. 40 acres & a mule owed to me or not.
So if we're not going to go full communist revolution and completely disrupt the entire global food chain even worse than the racist rapist is doing right now w/ these.../5
THANK YOU ASSHOLES! BUT HER EMAILS AM I RIGHT, FUCKERS? 😒
But, we have to do it b/c our environment demands it.
So that's piece 1: stop claiming small family farms are the real American agriculture. /7
Do you know how many ppl eat at local restaurants that are not chains?
I'm not even going to fast foods and food deserts.
I'm talking about golden corral, olive garden, applebee's, chili's, tgi Friday's... /8
The IHOP's & denny's & & &
Where EXACTLY do you think those chains and all the rest that feed the US for breakfast, lunch, & dinner get their food?
Or there's tiny-scale, by comparison, local family farms all across the US supplying all of these restaurants with all of the meat, cheese, fruits, & vegetables they use on a daily basis to feed 330M people?!
These chain restaurants get their endless supply of foodstuffs from the same place that the major grocery store chain in the US -- WALMART -- gets their food from: factory farms.
This AGAIN isn't to say we shouldn't regulate the fuck out of everybody.
Put the regs in place.
Increase the compliance division.
Fight for permanent legislation in Congress.
Fight for all of it in court.
Hope we win somewhere.
Begin the process of increasing funding, incentives, training, and assistance for smaller, organic farms.
Let's build fast charging EV stations so when those batteries run low they can charge up & get back on the road/13
But you also tell people-who haven't had a raise in how long?-those whole food prices will be the prices for everything everywhere./14
Because I KNOW how futile this is.
I KNOW what kind of monoliths we're up against.
I KNOW how intransigent the policy system is.
I also KNOW that we have to try to save some of us./16
ESPECIALLY when it comes to our food supply chain.
(& I didn't even touch imported food. 😏 )
