Small farmers in Africa and elsewhere often lack the income and training to buy and use biotech seeds and may become skeptical of technology if new products are used improperly, the 56-year-old son of billionaire Warren Buffett said. Howard Buffett, a board member of his father’s company, Berkshire Hathaway Inc
“Stop thinking that what we know how to do is going to work for somebody else,” Buffett said. “We need to be intelligent enough and humble enough to admit that we don’t know everything and that we certainly don’t know some things in other parts of the world that need to happen.”
Buffett, a Berkshire director since 1993, is an ambassador against hunger for the United Nations World Food Program and runs the Howard G. Buffett Foundation, which aids subsistence farming. His father once said that Howard, who farms land in Nebraska and South Africa, “would rather spend an evening on a tractor in the field than on a date with Angelina Jolie.”

We see the decentralization with such obvious slap-your-mama-in-the-face examples such as bitcoin. But were you aware that decentralization is taking place in the food industry right in your neighborhood? Eyup…that’s correct…YOUR neighbors are in the food production business.
And what a diverse business it is…from the current hottest home trend in the USA (guess clucker houses?) to the up-and-coming aquaponics… people, that is to say, humans, not corporations, have caught the decentralization wave and are expressing it by producing their own food.
And many of the decentralized food producers, the so-called ‘1/4 acre set’ (after the small back yards in use) are discovering that their production both quality and quantity is so far superior to WTF Mart offerings, that any surplus they choose to favor neighbors with does not go unappreciated. Of course, be aware your local fascist gov’tcorp does not like decentralization, and so used to be an irritant until the 1/4 acre started ‘trending’, then they had to back off (at least in some places). Power shifts do not get any more ‘from the ground up’ than this continuing manifestation of decentralization.
While the many protests against Monsanto are certainly worthwhile, their impact on this evil bitch of a corporation are mosquito stings on an elephant compared to the olympic swimming pool sized enema that Monsanto is going to receive from the trend toward ‘only in my back yard’ (OMBY Mo’Fo!) developing throughout the anglo-american (deep state) empire.

Explaining the global vaccination programs is NOT a party-killer! It’s a Party Trick!
Hans Rosling, an interesting academic…stating that 83% of children globally receive vaccines. Bill Gates wants to make that 100% with the added benefit this will reduce poverty. WTF! You cannot make this up?
So has poverty been eradicated in US, UK, Greece, Spain, Portugal due to vaccine coverage?

How was Monsanto able to gather so much clout?
There was one reason and one reason only. Putting the world’s food supply into fewer hands was, and is, a major item on the Globalist agenda. If it weren’t, the FDA-Monsanto approval scam would have been exposed in a matter of weeks.
Control food and water, and you hold the world in your hand.

WAR ON HEALTH: The FDA’s Cult of Tyranny
Introduced by the director (from his speech at the world premiere in New York City, June 15, 2012)
‘War on Health’ is the first documentary detailing and challenging the FDA agenda and its allegiance with the international Codex Alimentarius, which hopes to establish a monolithic food and health regime. Betraying its founding mandate to assure drug, food and chemical safety in the interests of public health, the FDA today is a repressive bureaucracy serving pharmaceutical and agricultural greed and profits. Vaccines, medical devices, prescription drugs are fast tracked at alarming rates through the FDA at the expense of scientific oversight to assure their efficacy and safety. The result is hundreds of thousands premature deaths annually from pharmaceutical drugs, vaccines and medical devices and an epidemic of medical incompetence and fraud sanctioned by federal health officials.
Here is a great explanation on GMO and Bt pesticide. A must watch documentary by David Suzuki
Note: Dr Suzuki is a climate change activist however that does not detract from his warning about GMO.
(NaturalNews) Expected to reach an estimated $35 billion in profits this year, the organic market has become attractive to food companies on all sides of the spectrum, opening up the door for potential abuses.
Under-the-table financial contributions to politicians in Washington have allowed Big Food companies to hijack the organic industry by selling products blatantly in violation of strict organic standards set by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
The organic label abuse, further illustrates that even when GMO is labelled, corporations will circumvent them.
