Community Solutions Podcast

Jul 8, 2021 Our farming industry has changed so much over the last few decades, as we've moved away from the small family-owned farms to the massive corporate farms. In fact, the mega rich are buying up huge swaths of land, like Bill Gates does to grow crops in order to experiment with biofuels. Ted Turner is the largest land owner in three different states. Why? Almost all meat is processed through one of four large companies One owned by China). These are companies that are more than happy to go along with the calls to reduce the eating of meat.

These ultra-rich people are getting government subsidies for their farms. They are growing or raising whatever it is the government is paying them to grow or raise. They don't even need to use their own money to operate them. Family farms are quickly becoming a thing of the past. A large percentage of farmland is farmed by people that don't own it.

Also, your super conservative, Republican-led Senate is still giving the Democrats 80% of what they want. The budget bills are all passing. The education funding bill has passed. The police reform bill may pass. They are so afraid of a government shutdown that they are willing to give away the proverbial farm... or maybe the real one we discussed in the rest of the podcast.
