Regarding, @ April 21, 2015 at 11:29 a.m.: "Loon and his fellow conspiracy theorists fascinate me…you're nuts":

Use of the pejorative "conspiracy theorists" — and its common ad hominem puerile variants — "you're nuts," "conspiracy monger," “crackpot,” “wacko,” etc. — is nothing but a feeble attempt to shape information and analysis.

As any prosecutor or detective would affirm, a conspiracy is simply when two or more people plot to commit an act of deceit or crime. Thus petty attempts to use the term "conspiracy" to ridicule are asinine.

The term “conspiracy theory” was coined by the CIA in April 1967 in this dispatch marked "Psych-CS" (Psychological Operations — Clandestine Services):

[after loading, click to enlarge]

The term was first interpolated into news reports and commentary by CIA media assets as the agency maneuvered to bolster the cockamamie Warren Commission’s “lone assassin” / "magic bullet" nonsense (now disregarded by a majority of the US population) regarding the John F. Kennedy assassination.

The use of the term in the comment above is a laughingly weak attempt to intimidate:

“Look here, not there,” an attempt to manipulate discussion participants into placing their reasoning faculties in abeyance and adopt what are often uncritical and even misleading modes of substantiation and conclusion.

Often adopted by a person experiencing cognitive dissonance, or intellectually or emotionally incapable of contributing positively to an online discussion, the phenomenon is also increasingly common in US establishment print, cable, and broadcast media, 90% of which is now controlled by just six transnational corporations.

loonpt:

Very good points — that the current situation is only viable via subsidies.

Incidentally, by using the word "deport" in regard to cows — ;-) — @ April 20, 2015 at 10:49 p.m., my intent was that most would understand that I was being figurative, not literal, regarding exactly what method(s) should be utilized in rectifying this situation.

"Grace Fisher, the 17-year-old girl diagnosed last December with acute flaccid myelitis (AFM)…"

Acute flaccid myelitis is polio (re-branded), a very common result of the fraudulent but extremely aggressively marketed and dangerous seasonal "influenza" vaccines [ see: http://www.noozhawk.com/article/panel... ].

I second erici's posts.

Perhaps it's time to realize that most of the produce for this country can't — and shouldn't — be grown in one irrigated desert valley in California. And yes, deport the cows to anywhere east of the Mississippi where there's sufficient water and fertile soil to grow their food as well.

Certainly for the environment, but also for the national economy as a whole, the positives to decentralizing and growing more food where there is more water I would think would far outweigh the disruption to the California economy, a disruption which might be much worse if we continue shipping out of state in produce trucks 80% (less the amount used for food consumed in-state) of whatever water remains.

Like many countries, Russia bans GMOs, and *more than 50%* of all the food produced in that (cold climate) country is produced organically on small farmsteads.

In Pasadena, minutes from a major freeway interchange, in addition to more eggs and honey than they can consume themselves, this family of four…

http://urbanhomestead.org/

…harvests 6000 pounds of organic produce per year from cultivating half of a standard 1/5 acre city lot — a level of productivity and sustainability that environmentally-destructive conventional agriculture can't come close to achieving.
