The US's let them eat cake attitude: Food not a right.

So you think you have a "right to food"?

One would think as a human being that should be a ... basic human need, a human right?

Well, you would be WRONG! WHAT? I said, you would be wrong.

While no fan of the UN, the stance taken on this vote, by one country, the US seems despicable.

Here is what the vote was on:


By a vote of 180 in favour to 1 against (United States) and no abstentions, the Committee also approved a resolution on the right to food, by which the Assembly would “consider it intolerable” that more than 6 million children still died every year from hunger-related illness before their fifth birthday, and that the number of undernourished people had grown to about 923 million worldwide, at the same time that the planet could produce enough food to feed 12 billion people, or twice the world’s present population.
The US doesn't "consider it intolerable" that more then 6 million children die every year from hunger related illness? I mean couldn't they just pretend to care? Feign concern?

This article claims it is all about the IMF bankster gangsters and using food as a means of control.

The IMF gangsters make all kinds of profits by manipulating food around the world. Haiti received tons of highly subsidized cheap US rice, but only in exchange for loans from the IMF. Unable to compete with the low prices, Haitian rice farmers went out of business and locally grown food dwindled to a fraction of what it had been. As a result the tiny nations ability to provide for themselves was damaged to the point food riots broke out when the subsidized rice flow was adversely affected by rising fuel costs and / or increased demand in China / India.

I agree with that and I take it even further.

The first thing that came to my mind was all those big corporate conglomerates, American of course, promoting their GMO crops as a necessity.
You know the names.. Monsanto, Archer-Daniels Midland, Carghill.
Think of how the US has been 'promoting' the use of these corporations frankenfoods worldwide. Iraq and India pop in my head. Of course the US and Canada.
Oh, how the US government has protected the manufacturers of monstrosites, through legislation and warfare, and complicit "alphabet agencies" of course.

If the US acknowledges food as a right, then everyone can grow their own garden. Organic/ Non-GMO farmers can prosper free from intimidation. It would be their right! Their right and yours and my right ,as individuals, to bypass the giant corporations that wish to control food for their own profit.

The US couldn't even acknowledge that people have a right to food, because that would take all control out of corporate and corrupt bankster gangsters hands.

  3. I stand corrected and shall dispose of myself post haste. I do hope that you are satisfied, you of the Illiterate Gentry. I may well not be worth food, but at least, Asshole, I know how to spell. That is because, I did, unlike you, have parents, parents that paid to send me to school so that I could make a cohesive and literate statement. With that, I end with a fart in your general direction, hense the reference to the beans!

  6. Wow. It's not often we get someone that idiotic. Mind you, those Jewish boys pretending to be Muslims were much worse. What were they called again? Muslims Against Muslims And For All Things Jewish, or something. They were a laugh those boys weren't they?

  7. they were a laugh and they haven't left entirely, they lurk about, leaving filth filled messages, of course, since they have nothing of any substance to say.......

    perhaps they forgot this:

    Judaism:

    * "What is hateful to you, do not to your fellow man. This is the law: all the rest is commentary." Talmud, Shabbat 31a.

    while they are so busily committing every hateful attrocity they can manage.

  9. What the government giveth, the government taketh away - this includes "rights", such as the "right to bear arms".

    Rights are a double edge sword, I lost some links on this to post here, but when you get into legalities, black is white, up is down. Very strange and confusing - as its supposed to be.
